Bodegas Faustino

Gran Reserva Faustino I Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

Popped and poured, enjoyed over two hours. The 2006 “Faustino I” Gran Reserva pours a deep garnet color with a near opaque core. Medium+ viscosity with moderate staining of the tears and no obvious signs of sediment. On the nose, the wine is vinous with notes of dark, cherry, dried leather, cigar paper, organic earth, pencil eraser, mocha, and a hint of warm spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The body is silky and lean. The finish is tart and long. Tasty now but should drink very well over the next decade. Definitely a more traditionally made Rioja and I’m here for it. Bottle No. 1629/247680. — 4 months ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Very interesting wine this. Lots of leather with cassis and a hint of menthol. Very easy to drink and very smooth. This could develop in the coming years to an amazing to watch.

Viña Bosconia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2011

Really enjoyed this with steak on a Tuesday. Initial nose was delightful. Then some age crept in. But then it gained verve and sustained that energy through the next hour. The next day it retained its fruit and strength of character. — 3 months ago
