Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía 2019

Absolutely delicious Mencía-based blend. It had a great mix of fruity and earthy, combining notes of plum, cherry, and boysenberry with notes of black tea, coffee, and herbs. Checked all the boxes for a beautiful weeknight bottle that would pair well with many different dishes. Blend of Mencía, Bastardo, and Garnacha Tintorera. 5/15/23. — 2 months ago

Termes Toro Tinto de Toro 2019

Tastes more expensive than the price. Dry and smooth. Soft. I would buy again. Costco. If there are additives definitely good and hiding that artificial taste. I am not familiar enough about Spanish wine but to me it tastes like French. Or à california cab French oak. Fruit is dark but not jammy. Subdued. — a month ago

Unico Gran Reserva Especial Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2010

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Beautiful nose of blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants, cedar, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, herbs Mediterranean spices, light earth, black pepper, chocolates and dark coffee. What a gorgeous nose this is.

Medium plus to full bodied, elegant and smooth, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, spices, cedar, leather, vanilla, earth, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn, coffee, light cola, eucalyptus, herbs and black tea.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a beautiful wine from Ribera Del Duero. Soft and smooth. Rich and elegant. Fruit forward with lots of earth and chocolate notes.

This 13 year old is still young, and showing great complexity at this point.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime. So much better after 3 hours of airtime, and definitely worth the wait.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.

Wine Spectator 96 points. Robert Parker 97 points.

Loved the nose at this point. Feels like a high end Napa Cabernet with some age. So interesting.

A blend of 94% Tempranillo and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in French and American oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

98 points.

$500.
