Reserva Douro Red Blend 2013

This has developed a bit more complexity on the nose since my last taste a year ago. Red cherry and blackberry followed by incense, black tea, vanilla, and a bit forest floor and hint of smoked meat, then the lovely cherry note resurfaced. Well balanced with acidic and tanning structures for further aging. What a value! — 10 days ago

Revisiting this wine - similar to prior notes but w/incredibly vivid white flowers & soft creamy edges of lemon curd, very elegant & lithe. Not how I expected this to develop. Absolutely delicious — 6 days ago

Bodega Comando

La Bruja Avería Rozas de Puerto Real Grenache 2019

Transparent ruby magenta. Piquant, tamarind and exotically red fruited nose with a hint of white pepper and hot road tar. Red florals and red candy, then a crunchy-chewy bit of saltwater taffy or sweet red starburst candy on the palate. Such a salty, juicy and delicious finish, with an herbal twist. Really stylistically unique and delicious. — 11 days ago

Reserva Especial Rioja Tempranillo Blend 1964

Tasted blind. Dark tawny with good fruit, mocha, black cherry. Tannins fully resolved. This is clearly old and a CMF wine (Chateau Mind F***). The consensus thinking is this is really old, really good and something we’ve not had before. I guess 78 Guigal La La. Other guesses were equally all over the board. Great to try out an old/aged Spanish wine… one of our group is exploring more of these old Spanish wines, given the rise in cost of everything else around it. Thanks for sharing Steve! — a month ago

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2012

2021 winter. Brambly berries, leafy undergrowth and cheesecake oak - it’s still coming together, but there’s already much to enjoy if traditional Rioja is your thing. (It is my thing.) — 8 days ago
