White Penedés Xarello 2015

Very different. First non-sparkling Xarello I’ve had, and it taste a lot like a sparkling wine. Better on day two. Very little fruit here. Some dense sour lemon and lime with loads of herbs. Simple but singular. — 2 days ago

Gran Coronas Reserva Penedès Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Really disappointing. This one taste like it was made for a mass market American audience over extracted very little acid practically no tannins. I expected more from this grand Spanish wine maker — 22 days ago

Ferrer Bobet

Seleccio Especial Vinyes Velles Priorat Grenache Carignan 2014

Deep rich purple in color. Mustiness on open that blew off over 20 minutes. Earth, grilled meat, with a layer of stewed strawberry vanilla on top, the remaining wood component will continue to convert to tertiary flavors with additional age. Dry with medium acidity, medium plus alcohol, medium plus tannins, with a lengthy finish with a lingering chalky white pepper. This wine is excellent and will improve.

This was my 2nd bottle and review of this wine. The notes are fairly consistent but the mustiness was not present in the first. Interesting.

Espenyalluchs Vinya de Coster Xarello 2018

Toll frisch, wir ein Sauvignon Blanc mit Schmelz. Deutliche Hefe, Recht euch Frucht aber exotisch. Kraftvoll ohne die früher zu verlieren — 6 days ago

Partida Creus

Litrona Tempranillo

This “cult classic” - recommended by a local wine slinger who is moving to Spain to work at Partida Creus (!!!) - did not disappoint. Dark cherry notes at the top with a lingering acidity and hint of spice. — 11 days ago
