La Rioja Alta

Viña Alberdi Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2012

Like a hit song I’ve heard over & over again, not sure I know what this tastes like anymore-but it is delicious. Give it air to fill out the tomato soup notes (actually a good tomato soup). Double dare on finding a better & more consistent value under 18$. — 14 days ago

Reserva Tierras de Cair Tempranillo 2009

Esta vez le bajo un poco la puntuación. Sigue estando muy bueno pero me da la impresión de que la evolución en botella no le ha sentado lo bien que esperaba. Por lo demás me ratifico en la cata anterior — 3 days ago

Tempranillo Cabernet Blend 2012

I don't really think I gave this wine much of a chance, and I'm really not sure why. Rockstar winemaker Dan Gatlin has created a very nice wine. The nose is a lot of boysenberry and black cherry. Very raucous and earthy. Entry has a hint of that typical Texas tart terroir, but settles down very nicely. Sweeter red and black fruits give way to a fig and plum. the finish on this wine is exactly what this needs to go with a variety of fare: cheeses, meats, sauces and dips, BBQ. I don't know if I would hold this one too much longer, as to me the significant impression is made in the first two thirds of this wine, which will probably not improve with more bottle aging. — 15 hours ago

JC Vizcarra Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2012

Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, vanilla, and spice. The palate adds notes of licorice and sweet berries leading to a long persistent finish. 100% Tempranillo, aged 15 months in oak, from a small, organic estate. Very well-made and enjoyable. 2012 vintage on April 2, 2019 — 13 hours ago

Way better than I ever suspected. Has an earthy, briar-like nose. Intense tobacco and vanilla. Medium bodied, very smooth, lots of grace. Blackberries are dominate, hints of licorice. — 11 days ago

Bright Ruby, complex fruit aromas, spice and oak. 90% Tempranillo & 10% Graciano, 48 mos on American oak. Ripe Berry fruits, powerful yet elegant, with spice & smoky notes on full tannins.

New French oak regime and alcohol still prevalent, but the window to this wine’s future is wide open as the fruit is just now coming through on the palate. If you drink now it needs a full days’ decant at least. Otherwise get a few and sit on them for another 7-10 years. — 10 hours ago

C.V.N.E. (Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España)

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2014

Blackberries, plums and currants, with smoke, dry stone, a little bramble, and a little cigar humidor. Nicely balanced tannins and acidity. This wine drinks well above its price. — 2 months ago

Definition Viña Majestica Rioja Tempranillo

Deep red, but very opaque, light red fruits but has a complexity to it with a leathery edge. probably has the flavour to match some dark red meats. — 4 days ago
