Finca El Otero Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2014

@Vinous Favorites nailed the tasting notes. This bottle was gifted at the winery by one of our fellow tour goers, and very much appreciated. Paired tonight with grilled beef short ribs marinated as Korean Bulgogi and it is rocking the pairing. The mouthfeel is soft yet full bodied, wish I bought more. — 5 days ago

Alion Ribera del Duero Tinto Fino 2014

This delivers the goods for a “second” wine (little brother to Vega Sicilia). Needs lots of air; give it plenty of decant time as it’s quite closed on pop n pour. Plums, red and black berries, minerals, roast beef jus, charcoal smoke, really well integrated oak. The tannins start out super plush, but build with time in the decanter. Savory and velvety at the same time. Needs a little more time in bottle to really shine. — 19 days ago

Taste: dark cherry, vanilla, rich deep spices, mild oak, quickly goes to tannins, with a long finish

Alexander VS The Ham Factory Ribera del Duero Tinto Fino Blend 2015

Fresh olive and sugar free boysenberry chutney waft in this nose.

More of that sugar free fruit leather, purple sage and fig smoked over cedar staves.
Good foggy fruit play with a dark back palette, where anise and herbaceous acidity take this wine to frontal chewy tannic afterthought.
Lingering chilly bits. Poor Alexander.

So much going on in this post @MaJ CappS love it. Alexander vs The Ham Factory was a solid film but it is no Godzilla vs Mothra.
