Dominio de Pingus

Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2011

Back cherry, blue berry, violet with cassis. This is a fantastic wine and continues to get better with air. The tannin is still very present but does not overwhelm the fruit. Bravo. — 11 days ago

Jarvis Winery

Estate Grown Cave Fermented Napa Valley Tempranillo 2014

I ha e had a lot of Jarvis, but this maybe the first time for their Tempranillo. This one was a bit young. Nothing particularly special here. Not out of balance , but not much finesse. Nonetheless still lots of fun to try — 10 days ago

Ready now it sounds like to me? How much air did you give it? I’ve got 3 in my cellar, have been wondering when to give one a roll. Thanks.

@Martin Sher Oh yeah. So good. Drank it over 2.5 hours. It didn’t last. Can see it will last a bit longer for sure but insanely good now.
