Rio Lindo

Vino de Espana Syrah

Had on a plane. Decent enough I suppose given that fine dining and fine wines are not things that go with basic economy class. To be fair I have had far worse. Had a decent flavor profile from Syrah with a solid backbone from the Grenache . Not much finish to it but it was rather chilled. — 2 days ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

The R. Lopez Heredia ‘Vina Tondonia Reserva’ Rioja was sourced from what was generally a challenging, low-yielding vintage in Rioja, that was somehow rated ‘very good.’ The wine is a gorgeous blend of Tempranillo (75%), Garnacho (15%), Graciano and Mazuelo (10%) that was aged for six years before bottling. Needing an hour in the decanter to fully evolve, the ‘Vina Tondonia Reserva’ shows pretty red cherry cordial and wild blackberry tones that are woven together with dark licorice, pencil shavings and suggestions of wild mushroom that all take shape in the glass. The palate is round and generous, showing really good range from menthol to black cherry compote, Umami and suggestions of red bell pepper with Mandarin orange rind undertones that sing in unison. The freshness and verve of the wine that combine with the weight seriously impresses. Every bit outstanding, this is amongst the best of the vintage. Drink 2020-2038- 95 — 4 days ago

Red Blend

Delicious! Perfect sipper for a Saturday Blizzard. Rich, round taste with deep plum and jammy flavors. Oak and vanilla/spice notes on the finish. Easy drinking without a strong bite. For 7 bucks, this wine is a diamond in the rough. Will buy again and again. — 11 days ago

Envinate

Albahra Garnacha Tintorera 2018

Our third wine from Envinate and this one is just as great as the other two. Great medium body wine that taste like eating blueberries from the bush. Earthy and subtle finish. Lovely wine. — 14 days ago
