"El Amigo Imaginario" Palomino 2017

Funky little sherry-like orange wine. If blindfolded I’d have guessed it was an amantillado but has a bit lighter qualities that make it quaffable on its own. Near bone-dry saline qualities with the nutty finish you’d expect from that region. I paired it with gumbo and it worked fantastically. At the end of quarantine, I’m likely to have an imaginary friend too...🤪 — 2 days ago

Habla Espanol Red Wine 2018

Needs a day or 2 to open up. Starts almost like a thin Beaujolais, but gradually opens up. Heavy strawberry and Provencal herb notes. Stays light bodied, but pairs well with dishes like Coq au Vin or a white bean gratin. Well priced at ~$13 for 1L. — 5 days ago

Albahra Garnacha Tintorera 2017

spanish cherry blaster. medium body & medium-high acidity, zippy but soft with a hint of spice, cherry, plum & stone. winery name translates to “wine yourself” which makes me think of “frost yourself” from 10 ways to lose a guy. this has nothing to do with the wine but feels relevant nonetheless after wining myself all night. — 2 days ago

E-6 Grenache Blend

Actually E-6. Initially tight and acidic and once it opened caramel candied red apples. Nice medium body. Amazing with fish/pasta/asparagus. Such a rewarding wine! — 9 hours ago

N.V. Delicate Cream Sherry

Owned by Banfi and an elder statesmen in Sherry. I’m not a Cream Sherry man but this is quite light and well constructed, for under 15$, well done. Almond paste, marzipan, walnuts on nose. — a day ago

Terramagna Selected Harvest Red Blend 2015

It‘s a very tasty blend. The nose is fantastic: there’s some vanilla, a cherry and a red currant. And all combined with the sweetness of jam and toned with pleasant acidity. But there is something else and I can’t recognize it. Like a mystery. Mild tannins. Short finish. — 9 days ago
