Diet starts tomorrow, not only is it Monday its also the 1st day of the month. Can’t beat that starting date!
Not as big & bold as the Reserva Tempranillo. But it will do for Carls & Reaper bbq sauce 🔥🌶😋
Tomorrow doesn’t officially start till I wake up, so it’s going to be a long night — 15 days ago
Buying at the budget end while travelling is like throwing dice, but this Rioja Reserva (1 year in oak, 2 in bottle) delivered nicely at around 11€. Balanced, black/raspberry fruited, earthy, bit of spice, leather, gravelly tannin. If I find another bottle I’ll buy it! Ronda, Spain — 8 days ago
In Seville, so trying this locally grown tempranillo. Small batch with 12 months in chestnut barrels .. full bodied, fleshy black/red fruits with woody spice, a bit of aniseed, ripe (on the sweeter end of the scale), good length and grunty drying tannin. The components seem good but as a whole not so sure (perhaps it’s the chestnut ..)

I'm on the famous Camino de Santiago de Compostela, in the beautiful city of Salas, Northern Spain. Finished my second full day of walking (avg. 15 miles w).
Bought the bottle at the local market. Way too exhausted to discern specifics. But, it's a good wine and my feet hurt a little less the more of this I drink.
¡Cheers and Buen Camino! — 3 days ago
Big and powerful style of Rioja. Assume Grenache is doing that. Nose is full of dark fruit. Not without complexity. Palate is as the nose suggests - big, quite rich black and blue fruit. Plumbs. The tobacco and cedar is there from the tempranillo but it is shrouded by the plumb. Overt tannins, but quite fine and giving good grip and a long dry finish. Big but Well balanced. Would buy again — 6 days ago
