Bodegas Beronia

Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2017

This Beronia Crianza - the name signifies its oak treatment - shows a dark ruby color in the glass. The nose displays black fruit and oak aromas like spices and vanilla. The palate offers a true Tempranillo experience, with plum, blackberry and a smattering of licorice. The tannins are firm and ready to take on a steak, but if you try the wine with ham or cheese you won’t be disappointed. — a day ago

Bang for your buck? I’d probably bet on Cuné every time. Nice review.

Marqués de Murrieta

Finca Ygay Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2015

The weekend has started and I have opened the 2015 Marqués de Murrieta Finca Ygay Reserva Rioja. A blend of 80% Tempranillo, 12% Graciano, 6% Mazuelo and 2% Garnacha.

On the nose this is a beautifully complex aroma with black cherry, blackberry, plum, licorice, perfumed notes, violets, spice, vanilla, some oak and earthiness.

O the palate is black cherry, blackberry, plum, star anise, clove, spice, oak, vanilla and earth.

This wine is full bodied silky mouthfeel with high acidity and medium + fine integrated tannins that move wonderfully into a long dark fruit licorice finish. Have a wonderful weekend everyone, we are moving into a deep freeze and snow for the weekend. Please stay safe and healthy and enjoy yourselves. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
