Real de Asúa Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2016

2016- Real de Asua - CVNE. Stored at 55 degrees for six months, decanted for one hour, and served at 65 degrees. I do prefer 62 but I missed the mark. Ha ha. The bouquet is a perfume of lavender and vanilla. The palate begins with a smooth silky raspberry delight. It is very light on the tongue, yet opaque in the glass. The legs last forever! The palate develops into a tart, earthy, and smokey finish that drys out the lips and tongue. There is an after taste of graphite and slate as the lips begin to pucker!!

Cune Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

9.0

Gentle nose of black currant, leather, black tea, Chinese medicine herbs, vanilla, with hint of incense and tobacco leaf. Medium body. Vibrant palate with fresh acidity and additional taste of cherry and sweet spice. Mellow tannins.

It's mind boggling that this sells at Costco at $19.99. I don't know how C.V.N.E do it. I prefer this over the 09 Vina Real Grand Reserva. Maybe I should retaste the Vina Real.

Vintage Porto 1847

The year when Kristianstad burned down to the ground. A mind blowing wine. Room filling bouquet, vigorous, balanced and an infinite length. Decanted 2,5 h — 9 years ago
