Teulera Montònega - Garnatxa Blanca 2016

Palmer Emmitt
9.0

This REALLY needs 30+ minutes of air to open up. At first, it’s extremely muted in every way, and shows a bit of oxidative character. I almost gave up. Slowly, notes of lime zest, under-ripe honeydew melon, and oregano start to emerge, at first on the really long finish - the finish is what kept me from walking away. What is constant throughout is the pleasant, zippy mouthfeel which makes it an enjoyable seafood-friendly acid-driven quaff. And the longer I swirl and sniff and swish and swallow, the more this has to offer - purity, focus, balance, length - an archetypal Mediterranean white wine. — 9 days ago

Botani Sparkling Muscat

Happy National Moscato Day! (9 May 2020)

Great way to start a cold, and mildly snowy day, part of the way into May??!!

(Proof of why we can't plant tomatoes until almost June around here.)

Oloroso Sangre y Trabajadero Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

My first sherry so not the best base of knowledge to judge it. But I though it had a depth of flavor and enjoyed drinking it straight and in lemon spritzers. — 10 days ago

Celler De Capçanes

Peraj Ha'abib Flor de Primavera Kosher Grenache Blend 2017

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cooked cherries, light wood, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, spices, herbs, earth, dark coffee, dark chocolate and black pepper.

Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, licorice, sweet cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, light vegetables, peppercorn, tobacco, chocolates, light vinaigrette, pencil lead and herbs.

Long spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Spanish blend. Smooth and buttery, with nice acidity and balance. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Very pleasant and easy drinking already. Fruit forward, spicy and interesting. Would be nice to try it again in 3 to 5 years.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly, so please be prepared. It's worth the wait. Last glass was so much better.

I paired it a young Gouda cheese and crackers.

A blend of 35% Garnacha, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Samsó. Aged for 12 months in French Oak barrels. Kosher. Not Mevushal.

15% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$70.

Sierra Norte

Ananto Bobal 2018

It’s a Rosé not a red Bobal. Pretty butterfly label. Copper and pink rose color. Smells like rainwater, strawberry and nice lotion. Flavors are crisp, tart, juicy and pleasing. It’s a bit like the Berryessa Gap Vineyards Rosé of Tempranillo I had recently, but with a bit more funk and chunk. This is a very nice Rosé with some substance. — 7 days ago

This vintage is the best to date. Very restrained and keeping a medium body and high acidity. The aromas are of light toast, cocoa powder and red ground pepper. #graciano #parker #navarra #spain #spanishwine — 6 days ago
