Ruby Blues (ruby Tuesday) Winery


Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2019

2019 vintage.
Ruby red, medium bodied and juicy.
I love this on a Tuesday night.
Cherries…berries, earthiness and a bit of spice.
Bright acidity makes it very versatile with dinner.
If you do get the chance, try Brigaldara Amarone…..impressive for the price.

Viña Bosconia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2006

Just love this wine, just gets better and better, had bottle for Fat Tuesday. Deep Ruby with an elegant bouquet of berry fruits, light spice with fresh earthy tones, a traditional Rioja. On the palate, the wine was silky smooth with layers of flavors, berry and cherry, tobacco, smoky cedar, dark fruit, vanilla spice, very well balanced with fine tannins and a clean structure ending with a nice lingering finish. Delicious! Can age well into next decade. — 4 years ago

Marqués de Riscal

Reserva Herederos del Marques de Riscal Rioja Tempranillo 2017

Popped and poured; consumed over two days. Consistent both days. The 2017 Marqués de Riscal “Reserva” pours a deep ruby with a near opaque core. Medium+ viscosity with significant staining of the tears. No signs of sediment. On the nose, the wine is developing with dark cherries, ripe bruised strawberries, baked apple, hibiscus, toasted coconut, vanilla, new leather and some baking spices. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium+ tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long. Medium+ alcohol. A lovely pairing with my sort of modern riff on paella for a quick Tuesday evening meal. More please!

Having enjoyed vintages going back to the early 1980’s, I think Marqués de Riscal “Reserva” is one of the last few, true bargains in the wine world. They are classic in the sense that they are unmistakably Rioja and they have the ability to age for decades. It’s very hard for me to think of another wine that is widely available for under $30 that can drink this well and cellar that long. Let’s enjoy the disparity while we can!

Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Bright and clear dark ruby. Nose and palate of black cherry, black tea, and a bit it birchy wood. A bit of a tarry finish. Medium body, medium plus tannins, and medium acidity. Food is definitely its friend, but if you’re just looking for a Tuesday night by-the-glasser, it’s at home there, too. — 4 years ago

Bright and shiny ruby red with a nose of cherries, sage, herbs and red tea.
Medium bodied with berries/cherries, leather, violets and a touch of earthiness.
The acidity is crisp and cleansing with soft tannins that are nicely balanced.
This wine is a great Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday drinker and don’t break the bank.

Fitch Mountain Cellars

Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Year in, year out this is one of the more reliable values in California Cabernet. I think it’s sort of a second wine of Optima and I’m certain I’ve tried every vintage since 2001 because it rarely disappoints. I used to be able to swoop it for around $17 but it’s closer to $30 retail these days. Nevertheless, great QPR. Popped and poured; consumed over three days and best on Day 3. The 2017 pours deep ruby with an opaque core. The nose black currants, grilled kofta, purple flowers, baking spice and very light pyrazines…almost undetectable. On the palate, dark and red fruits, smoke and baking spice. Dry. Medium tannin; medium acid. Finish is medium…and savory. A totally respectable Tuesday night wine. — 3 years ago
