Tempranillo Blend

La Rioja Alta

Viña Ardanza Reserva Especial Tempranillo Blend 2001

Cranberries, warm plumpudding, compost, porcini, cinnamon, dill and gingerbread.
Well-judged acidity adds freshness and intensity to the otherwise slightly gloomy and brooding aromatics.
Very nice.

Bodegas Faustino

Faustino Rioja Gran Reserva I 2005

Killer wine, especially at the price point. Dried black cherries, plums, baking spices, dried tobacco, dried leather, eucalyptus, dust and smoke. Nice grippy tannins on the palate, but with a certain suave finesse that belies its age. Delicious. — 12 days ago

Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

The 2010 ‘Vina Cubillo’ Crianza Rioja is a compelling blend of 65% Tempranillo, and 25% Garnacho, with equal parts Mazuelo and Graciano. This single vineyard Rioja opens with an intense bouquet of sandalwood with pipe tobacco, leather and red fruits that align with the citrus zest and peat moss undertones. The palate revels in its silky texture and soft mouthfeel. Generous red fruits dance with exotic spices, and shades of orange infused black truffle on this exotic palate. Marvelous now at the nine year mark, the 2010 ‘Vina Cubillo’ will cellar well for at least another decade. Drink 2019-2029- 92 — 14 days ago

Bodegas Olarra

Cerro Añon Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

I was looking for big red to chew on, and I got one - but with a dash of elegance & some complexity.
Surprisingly fruity with ripe dark cherry & mulberry. Plus leather, tobacco leaf and some (nice!) oaky notes. On the palate nicely structured with chewy but juicy tannins, fruity acidity and great balance. Plus the velvety structure you expect from a Rioja. Finishes off with a cool whiff of spice & menthol. This is a modern interpretation but still very nice and it worked really well with a flank steak.

Chicken teriyaki, the 40 year old virgin, a homemade lemonade and this fine young bottle. Cherries up front like the kind you get in northern Michigan in late summer. Delicious. — 9 days ago
