Aurora Vineyard Chardonnay 2010

Drinking great at 10.5 years with plenty of freshness and vibrancy. Finely tuned tension between fruit, acidity, and texture ending in a long, harmonious finish. — a month ago

Cune Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2016

Nose of fresh red strawberry, and flowery with a hint of vanilla. Slightly dry, but juicy and a full mouthfeel. More vanilla on the palette, with ripe red fruits. This is quite nice! — 12 days ago

Monopole Rioja Blanco Seco Viura 2016

Completely obsessed with this. Has that waxy and honeyed lemon of old Lopez. Fresh burst of citrus spritz. Then slapped with that salinity of the manzanilla. So damn good. — a month ago

Aurora Carricante 2018

I carricante believe how delicious this is at the price. (Pun credit to @Adriana Fabbro). Pale yellow, toasty nuts, lemon zest, honey, dried flowers and hay on the nose, palate is viscous and honeyed but with searing acidity, lemon and chalk, green apple, melon, peach, smoky sage on the back. Just got a couple in and opened one just for the halibut. — a month ago
