Honorio Rubio Villar

Lias Finas Rioja Viura 2015

Not your typical California or French Rose, but $14.00 on sale it works
Definitely will decant my 2nd bottling

Winery Notes,
Honorío Rubio is a Riojano white and rosé specialist. In a land best known for its incredibly age-worthy reds, among many die-hards out there it is undoubtedly the traditional whites which represent Rioja's finest and most original wines. We would add as well the barrel aged rosés, which are incredibly rare (Lopez de Heredia's has not been available for over 5 years, and we hear that they will finally have a little bit of the next release, 2008, in 2018!) Honorío makes an absolutely killer rosé, from some of his oldest Viura and Garnacha, briefly macerated and co-fermented, then aged 16 months in used barrels (which previously held his Lias Finas white wine). An inimitable, rich and bright, incredibly food friendly style of rosé.

Poggio Al Granchio Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2013

Beautiful Brunello. All the classic notes. A little more fruit forward than our favourite Ugolforte but excellent structure and refined palate. Not much can compare with any Brunello at its finest! — 16 days ago

Stone House Vineyard

The Lyre Shiraz 2015

Stonehaus Vintners, a Texas Hill Country vineyard, has sought to bring out the finest examples of Australian wine to the Hill Country. They have sourced unique Australian wines, such as the Barossa 2015, to give us here in Texas a true grasp of the Australian Shiraz.

Wow. This is aged Australian Shiraz at its finest. So rich, dense, voluptuous and flavor packed...all at 17/18 yrs old! As it was being poured, you could smell the eucalyptus/mint notes from half a table away. Incredibly perfumed, alongside dark chocolate covered cherries and blue and black fruit compote. On the palate it retained the Andes mint-like sweetness with black cherry liqueur, tar, mixed berry pie and fig. Sporting an ABV of 16.5% (!), it didn’t come across hot at all. Powered through being open a couple hours without a problem. No rush here. Fantastic! Thanks for sharing @joe leatherwood . — a month ago

@Shay A One of my favourite Barossa Shiraz. Had a 1998 once which was memorable. Not cheap but ticks all the boxes as your detailed tasting note covers. Great stuff.

Sativa Mendocino Carignan 2016

Blood-ruby, undiluted tenor from rim to rim. Blackberry-cran with a smoky coat, violets, raspberry reduction, wild nettle, suede, rose petal, dried cherry, applewood, and gingerly ginger, spare cedar, finest snuff, cherry pit and damp clove spiced nose. All with a slight memory of campfire. Black plum, cedar, violet, dried, sour cherry, dark leather, peppercorn, dried cranberry and red currant, cinnamon apple, fine, grippy tannins that integrate into the whole with a pleasing sense of herbs and bitters, sage and lavender. Did not expect this complexity from carignan, and floral notes that evoke like Nebbiolo. Class. .
