Great Rioja with Don and Melinda on our first trip to Sun City. Strong leather and tobacco flavors yet very drinkable. — 12 days ago
Un très bon Tempranillo. Corsé, épicé en premier et velouté par la suite, un peu opposé comme sensation mais c’est ce que j’ai ressenti. Boisée, cassis cerise. A besoin de respirer un peu avant de boire. Ce fût très bien avec un poulet Masala. SAQ $21,90 — 16 days ago
2011 is a very good, if not great, vintage in Rioja, but this bottle is not a good representation. While the fruits are strung nicely by vibrant acidity, neither the nose nor the palate shows the complexity and concentration from a dry and warm vintage.
Very enjoyable still. — 5 days ago
Deep burgundy in color with a short reddish rim.
Full bodied and soft with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with nice complexity.
Showing blackberries, sweet cherries, plums, espresso, sweet cedar, vanilla, spices, cola, tobacco leaf, earth, chocolates, peppercorn and herbs.
Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and pomegranates.
This is a very tasty Tempranillo from Spain. Still young, and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.
Needs a couple of hours to open up properly.
A blend of Tempranillo and Graciano. Aged for 24 months in American and French oak barrels.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
$30. — 20 hours ago
