As expected, even at 12yrs, this is very youthful. It’s rich without being heavy or dense. Cherry tobacco leaves accompanied by herbs de Provence and coconut/dill shavings on the nose. Crazy tart on the palate with high acidity. Mostly black cherry tart and fleshy cherry skin with a more herbal seasoning type finish. Give this time to evolve and add layers. — 8 days ago

All the dark fruits on the nose with a bit of forest floor earthiness, and so smooth on the palate with a lingering black pepper — a month ago

Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

strange bottle; at first seems really oxidized with a nose of iron and old coins. The palate although was really nice, so smooth with great acidity. Really old school with leather, beef, dill and orangepeel. No wine for food, just sipping... — 17 days ago

Sicilia Nerello Mascalese 2010

Absolutely necessary short decant. Fills out after an hour or so. Otherwise it’s all bunched up. One of my favorite producers. In the spirit of Lopez de Heredia & Rio Alta. — a month ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 2005

Deep gold. Salted bruised apple, baked pear, ginger, honey, almond paste, hazelnut skin, sweet baking spices - clove and nutmeg, beeswax, and crushed stone. Savory and weighty on the palate, like a Manzanilla. Medium acidity, pronounced intensity, long finish. — 4 days ago

Waxy apricot skin, some petrol, lemony minerals. At 13 years old, surprising fruit remains with unusual flavor profile - I like it very well but others may not. Good with spicy and/ or grilled seafood but for me very nice to savor on its own. — 22 days ago
