From Envinate. Juicy red fruit, bright acidity, medium bodied, herbal notes, with mild pepper finish. Garnacha tintorera (Alicante bouchette), 70%. Moravia Agria (high acid, low alcohol blending grape), 30%. Near Castilla-La Mancha . — 10 days ago
Another Wednesday Wine Committee in the books. Great hosting by @Bill Makens . 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine all served blind.
So much mango and guava here. Honeyed and ripe, but that fruit just dominates. Orange marmalade, clementine cake, and lychee-like. I couldn’t put this in Sauternes, so I settled on Cali’s Dolce dessert wine. — 11 days ago
Very light aromas... red fruits and a little banana. Smooth, round body up front, with a burst of tart cherries as the acid comes through. Very drinkable and food friendly! — 13 days ago
Priorat. Perfumed essences of rosemary and thyme and fennel and pine 🌲 on the nose. More on the palate as well as restrained citrus. Really interesting and delicious.

A round, gorgeous, rich white with all the decadence if Spain. This is a royal wine. Tastes of honeysuckle, candied lemon, early peaches, and smells like gardenias. This is the wine of the Alhambra, of all the good things of Spain. — 15 days ago

Fascinating. Aged on the lees (like sherry) for 9 months to produce a tart, briny, savory wine. — 10 hours ago
Served chilled. Lots of cherry. Great with a milk pudding — 3 days ago
