New labeling for the Ardanza, & I do like it. We drank this back to back with the Alberdi. The blue black fruit is gorgeous & the balance is outrageous. 28$ so well spent It makes me want to cry. — 2 days ago

Viña Alberdi Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2014

For 17$ (yes, that is a NYC Uber discount) double dare on coming up with a more elegant, enjoyable or consistent red wine that is at this QPR. — 2 days ago

Ganko Viñedos de Cardenas Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2016

Bärig doft med småcitrus och sötlakrits. Smakmässigt händer det mycket. Även här bärnärvaro med monastrellen kryddar till det hela med salami, garrigue, hasselnöt. Intakt fräschör över två dagar med långt torrt och mineraligt avslut. — 4 days ago

Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Vintage 2010 / we drank a glass in the evening, and now for sunday’s lunch, so with hours aeration. Só much fruit in smell, a real good balance, elegance and refinement. / Paired with venison, small potatoes, chanterelles and snow peas — 18 days ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 2006

More acidity on first taste than I was expecting but that is probably down to the beautifully fresh cherry notes. The taste then evolves on the palate, bringing out the American oak barrels in the form of a long aftertaste, smoky leather mixed with a zing of citrus. — 4 days ago

Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2013

This is a fantastic Rioja that is both richly endowed with fruit yet true to its roots. I’m very particular with Rioja’s and largely disinterested in anything modern. To me, this is a more “clean” example when compared to LdH. For the record, I love both. — 9 days ago

Qué Bonito Cacareaba Rioja White Blend 2014

Named after a Spanish rooster, this wine is a highly compelling blend of wine is composed of 50% Garnacha Blanca, 35% Malvasía, and 15% Viura sourced from head-trained vines gown in a mix of alluvial and calcareous soil from the municipalities of San Vicente de la Sonsierra and Briones with Rioja Alta. The three different grape varieties, harvested at different dates according to ripeness, come from the Leza, Ariasabal, Murmurón, El Sauco, El Bombón y Las and Tasugueras Vineyards. The wine was aged in 225 L New French oak barrels for eight months of lees aging and battonage. This wine opens with bright aromas of lemongrass, lychee, nectarine and star jasmine. Aromatically gratifying and compelling the wine constantly brings you back to the glass for more enjoyment. The unctuous texture entices as the silky wine glides along the mid-palate. Orange rind, Meyer lemon, Gravenstein apple pie and white rose flavors come to mind. This is an absolutely stunning bottling by the talented hands of Benjamin Romeo.
