La Rioja Tempranillo Blend

R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Rosado 2008

Карамель, нуга, коньячные ноты, калина, клубника с ботвой, красная смородина, розовая черешня, красный апельсин, лаковая деревяшка. Средне-полное тело с уверенной кислотностью и тонким танином. Энергично, накатисто и полно, с заметным объемом и живым балансом во вкусе. Ещё молодо, с потенциалом, немного горячо, но в целом уверенно и органично в своём напоре. — 5 days ago

Bodegas Faustino

Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2005

Deep garnet colour in the glass. Evidence of legs.

Clean on the nose with notes of medium(+) intensity. Mainly tertiary aromas of bottle ageing: leather, forest floor, wet leaves, savoury. Secondary aromas of oak: coconut, nutmeg, cloves.

Fully developed.

On the palate it is dry with pronounced flavour intensity. Medium(+) acidity, medium alcohol, medium tannin, full body, long finish.

Well balanced, very complex. Outstanding wine. Drink it now, not suitable for further ageing.

La Rioja Alta

Viña Ardanza Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2009

Always exceptional. I really admire the 2009 but I would prefer some of the vanillin/coconut American oak character to be a bit more woven into the overall picture. Pure red fruit aromas, exotic cedar and spice, sweet tobacco and a hint of balsamic herb. The freshness and silky tannins are delightful, just wait a few years for the aromatics to come together and resolve some of the younger parts. It’s going to be special. — 4 days ago

Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2004

Tobacco and Leathery notes - very earthy and savoury. An intriguing wine showing the Yin and the Yang of both sweet and savoury on the palate in the red cherry spectrum. Full of life in its 14th year. Soft supple persistent tannins. A great Rioja with another 5 years in it. The No. 1 Wine in 2013 Wine Spectators Top 100. — 18 days ago

Rioja Reserva Prado Enea Tempranillo Blend 2010

Really interesting Rioja, Muga never disappoints. Scents of Orange peel and tea. Silky and plush berries and cherries with spice. Lots of depth. 2010 that could age another ten years. Fantastic! — 15 days ago

2010 vintage on 21.9.18
Hardly showing any age. Nice purple color. In the nose tobaco, chocolate, wood, tar, vanilla and cherries. Very well balanced in the mouth with some nice fresh acidity in the end.

Kirkland Signature

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2013

Pairing this along side home-made pizza tonight, yum. Tannic cherry notes going into the decanter, notes forthcoming... $6.90 at my Costco.

Color is black cherry, only translucent at the edges.

Nose has earthy cherry, trending a little towards cherry syrup, interesting.

Palate has fresh cherry, light toasty wood, simple yet vivid but the finish is heady, maybe more air time is needed... Faint mocha notes make an appearance.

Definitely a solid value for the price.

@Dawn Emory As long as they carry at least most of the Kirkland offerings you'll do just fine. A girl I work with is from Rock Island, IL...if my memory is correct.

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1970

Stink-tastic! The fruit is still holding on and the tannins are fine and resolved. Still has that aged leather, cigar box and smoke profile. Seek this maker out. A QPR champ. — 9 days ago
