Bodegas Numanthia

Numanthia Toro Tempranillo 2012

Monster of a wine, stunning depth & extraction / concentration of flavors so impressive: no signs of age - this has at least 20 yrs ahead, tons of ripe almost stewed dark fruit (black profiled blackberry & prune, black cherry) w/rich soil, dusty edges, evolved over time w/some hi-toned expression, scorched Earth, caramel, coffee made appearances... endless length w/sturdy structure yet caressing tannins. I’ve had this wine many times and it never disappoints. — 13 days ago

Ultreia Saint Jacques Bierzo Mencía 2017

Ripe black fruit and a subtle earthy note. Beautiful silky mouthfeel and easy tannins make this super drinkable. This suited grilled chicken thighs perfectly. Great value. — 4 days ago

Gran Dama de Toro Toro Tempranillo 2004

Wasn’t expecting anything from this and got a whole load of nobility. Don’t even know how this ended up in front of me but it’s absolutely worth a mention. Excellent wine if you like palatable density and deep savory characteristics with a balanced alcohol profile. Surprising and excellent! — 2 days ago

Bodegas Alejandro Fernández

Dehesa La Granja Tempranillo 2011

Musky Cherry, prune smell that bites lightly at the nostrils, the taste comes in round and big, sticky before then coming in an underwhelming arch given the attack, that regardless is very full and numbing to both the tongue and roof of mouth, the body essentially dances, meaning it doesn’t come in strong or fade, it jumps, which I find cool. At the end, the wine leaves a prune residue with a persistent but mild acid that creates a favorable combination — 3 days ago

Alfredo Maestro (Bodegas y Viñedos Maestro Tejero)

El Marciano Grenache 2016

Medium ruby with a wide brim and a slight lavender tinge. If you don’t like funk, don’t even step to this. Smoked tobacco, mint, leather, and dark berries initially on the nose. Funky barnyard starts to creep in and it never really leaves. Thankfully. This is big and quite bold Grenache, but it still maintains a freshness and effervescent essence. Plenty dense with a nice streak of acidity running throughout, this is super dry and a little tart. Blackberries and dried cherries show up on the palate but the star of the show is that barnyard with all the earthiness and funk you could want. This is a gorgeous Grenache, a beautiful wine. This guy just knows what the hell he’s doing. — 22 days ago

Las Gundiñas Lomas de Valtuille Bierzo Mencia 2017

Wow! Seriously good! If you ever wanted to know what ‘white pepper’ means in a wine review, this is it. Beautiful red fruit with white pepper and spice. Absolutely a terroir driven wine. All of Raul’s Mencias are good, but the unique character of this one stands out. 2017 vintage on May 21, 2020 — 7 days ago

Viñas del Cenit

Cenit Vino de la Tierra de Zamora Tempranillo 2009

What a way to start the week!!
Not showing any age at all! Spanish powerhouse. Beautiful nose with loads of sweets: chocolate, cola, cinnamon, almondpaste, candied cherries. Super smooth and silky mouthfeeling. In the mouth it adds some layer over the sweets which makes it more then simple sweet wine. Well balanced, withholding some acidity and well dosed bitters. Very good wine.
