Reserva De La Tierra

Bodegas LAN

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2004

Tonight's wine is a wine I have been storing for quite a while. The 2004 Lan Rioja Reserva a Tempranillo blend.

On the nose there is black cherry, prune, fig, black currant, licorice, leather, tar and earth.

On the palate I am getting black cherry, black plum, blackberry, black currant, licorice, tobacco, violets and rich soil.

This wine is medium to full body silky and is still vibrant after this many years with medium minus acidity and medium + fine tannins that lead to a medium to long rustic finish. This weekend has been a wet one and looks to be the same tomorrow. I hope everyone are enjoying themselves, just be safe in wherever you do. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Herdade do Esporão

Reserva Alentejo Aragonês Blend 2015

Full bodied, smooth but noticeable tannins, very drinkable (not as heavy as my favourites) but carries its weight - if I could afford to make this an everyday wine I’d be a happy woman! — 3 days ago

Reserva Tannat 2017

Fantastic. Deep dark red with a bluish tinge. First taste after opening is a tidal wave of blackberry with lingering tannins. Not overly sweet or juicy tho.
After airing blackberry partially gives way to black current and tannins seem to intensify. Almost too bold to drink alone but not. A triple creme cheese with this would be perfection.

Bodegas Muga

Reserva Unfiltered Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2013

Deep ruby color with light cherry undertones and a wide brim. I hope you like oak because there’s plenty to be found here. Almost shockingly, I can’t say this is over oaked at all, it really is well integrated. Fun little nose with a bit of pepper, cherry candies, stone minerality, and oak. Rioja always seems to get me tingly, especially Muga and while this isn’t the biggest star in their stable it’s consistently good. High acidity that needs some time to even out, but still leaving a refined mouthfeel. Seemingly more New World than Old on the rich palate, there is a ton of energetic fruit here and very interesting minerality. Mushrooms, herbs, and smoke round things out. I like this wine a lot. I’ve got a feeling that in a few more years I might love it. — 13 days ago
