Viña Ardanza Reserva Selección Especial Tempranillo Blend 2015

Ardanza is always so great for the price. 2015 has beautiful fruit and concentration. Tobacco. Needs 3-4 years but ready now if you like ‘em young like Dylon. Pair with still quivering rare T-Bone steak in San Sebastián. — 3 days ago

Señorío de P. Peciña Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2009

This Rioja blend needs to be open a long time before consuming. Once it settles down, it is a great wine. So complex and rich. Definite fruity Grenache notes mix with deep Tempranillo. A great wine. — 8 days ago

Joven Rioja Tempranillo Blend

A sharp ache in the tongue. It’s sour but also quite dry. 13% abv though it leaves a strong after taste. The sharp note gets dull as it aerates. — 6 days ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Expressive, enticing, aetheric.
Dusty cherries, tobacco leaf, leather, (very) dark chocolate, wood finish, a hint of cigar box. So fresh, so uplifting, so youthful!
On the palate amazing purity, zingy cherry acidity, a hint of orange peel, present, juicy yet very, very fine tannins. After a few hours this shows a darker, richer side. Really nice flow and great energy!
Brilliant, just brilliant. And amazing vale, for this quality!

Marqués de Cáceres

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2012

Very nice with prime filet mignion, convex roasted sliced potatoes, fresh new asparagus, and small yellow zucchini. Some fruit and mild tannins. — a day ago

Bodegas Akutain

Rosado Gran Reserva Tempranillo 2015

Great red fruit and salinity. Creamy and oxidative like a baby LdH rosado; only complaint is the oak is a bit much right now but should work itself out. — 13 days ago
