Miguel Torres S.A.

Mas La Plana Penedès Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Torres family has been related to wine since the 17th century. Aged in oak for 18 months (70% new). Dark Ruby with aromas of black and blue fruits and complex spice. This Spanish Cab shows blackberry, currant and ripe cherry flavors with eucalyptus and herb spice, concentrated and complex with well integrated and structured tight smooth tannins. Long finish ending with earthy mineral notes. Just starting to be enjoyed now but this beauty has room to continue to develop. Very Nice! Tasting Sample. — 7 days ago

R. López de Heredia

Viña Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

9.2

As expected, even at 12yrs, this is very youthful. It’s rich without being heavy or dense. Cherry tobacco leaves accompanied by herbs de Provence and coconut/dill shavings on the nose. Crazy tart on the palate with high acidity. Mostly black cherry tart and fleshy cherry skin with a more herbal seasoning type finish. Give this time to evolve and add layers. — 7 days ago

Queen Of Spain

Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Queen of Spain Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Spain


Pale lemon in color with a yellow tint.

Great fruity nose with citrus, tropical fruits, peaches, bananas, pink bubblegum (Bazooka), pineapples and red apples.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with apples, tropical fruits, pineapples, bananas, light spices and almonds.

Medium finish with almonds and limes.

This is a great Sauvignon Blanc from Spain. Not very typical to find out of Spain. A Fun wine for parties, easy drinking and tasty.

Fruit forward with lots of tropical fruit notes. Loved the nose and kept smelling on it.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

13% alcohol by volume. Organic.

89 points.

Bodegas Vinicola Real

200 Monges Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2004

One of 4 wines brought to Folly Beach to enjoy a pre-15th anniversary celebration. Nose of black licorice and young pipe tobacco. Entry is a little bit sweeter, but classic Rioja with terroir driven notes, full bodied black cherry, black licorice, smoked pipe tobacco, brambleberry cola, semi-sweet plums, mint. Definitely more on the full-bodied side. Finishes long with a lot of pepper and flinty character. I honestly think this one has a solid 10 years ahead of it. — 4 days ago

Herbes Can Vidal

Hierbas (“yeerbass”) is a balearic tradition. Herbal liqueur, usually served over an ice cube or two after dinner. In many restaurants it was complimentary, and Ibicencos were delighted if you expressed interest. Some restaurants on Ibiza and Formentera produce their own. This was one of our favorites—not as sugary as the more commercial varieties with amazing aromas of thyme and rosemary. A great liqueur. — 19 days ago

Dark & Juicy Red Blend 2017

9.5

I love this as much as the first time I had it. So juicy and jammy, with a tiny tannin that prevents it from being too sweet. Finishes nicely with a hint of black pepper and herbs. Perfect for a Friday night in front of the fire. A solid favourite. — 12 days ago

Priorat 1996

9.0

Not familiar with this producer. At first, there was some funk it needed to blow off...little bit of Brett, even a touch of VA. Finally some old plum, smoked fig and cherry tobacco leaves arrived. Fairly light bodied and bright on the palate...medium acidity, black cherry flesh, sage and herbal spice on the palate. Thanks @Bradley Davis — 3 days ago
