Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2011

I still have some lingering, messed up taste buds from COVID, and my nose is only running at about 35%, but the cherries are bold, the tannins are silky and there’s a nice lingering acidity, with bold notes of cedar and the underside of leather. Really a perfect pairing for any tomato based sauce, tonight, Bucatini all'Amatriciana with spaghetti squash, grated pecorino, Shitake mushrooms and capers. Really a perfect food pairing. — 17 hours ago

Viña Bosconia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

Delectable Wine
9.4

Limpid ruby-red. A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes raspberry, cherry, vanilla, cured tobacco and exotic spices, and a potpourri note builds in the glass. Sweet, penetrating red fruit preserve, cherry cola and lavender pastille flavors are complicated by mineral and candied licorice flourishes. The impressively long, subtly tannic finish shows real energy and tight focus, and leaves floral and red berry notes behind. Aged for five years in American oak barrels.

Viña Gravonia Crianza Rioja Viura 2010

A classic. 100% Viura from the Zaconia vineyard, located right outside López de Heredia’s winery in Haro. Fermented in ancient oak vats with indigenous yeasts and aged in used barrels for four years, followed by another 6 years in bottle. Complex nose with oxidative notes. Chamomile, flowers, beeswax, lemon curd. Austere on the mouth, with great acidity and freshness. Long, subtly salty finish. Amazing — 15 days ago

Holy shit this is good. Lyle captures it well. It does have a great nose, expressive as heck but different than burgundy or anywhere else. I really want more. — a month ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Vintage 2008 | Six years in barrel and four years in bottle before release. It’s a wine you must contain yourself not to smell only. A rich and exuberant smell with leather, stewed red summerfruit, brushwood and tones of liquorice, really beautiful and Burgundian expression. I opened the bottle yesterday and drank one glass, now it has a nice expression with all the aeration. Very balanced taste with refinement. A very nice Rioja that is a joy to drink. | Paired with tunafish and green asparges — a month ago

Viña Tondonia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2007

Blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho, 10% Graciano and Manzuelo, deep Ruby with an elegant bouquet of berry fruits, cigar box, spice with fresh earthy tones, a traditional Rioja, still a bit reserved. On the palate, the wine was silky smooth, elegant with layers of flavors, berry and cherry, tobacco, smoky cedar, dark fruit, vanilla spice, very well balanced with fine soft tannins and a clean structure ending with a nice long earthy finish showing tertiary character. Delicious! Still has room to age. — a month ago

Bienenberg R GG Spätburgunder 2012

Spatburgunder is my hidden pleasure, about one hour I let the bottle open and there was the rich sweetness, with cherries and lambada strawberries. A very gentle touch of oak treatment, smooth and really lovely wine. — a month ago
