Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2008

Such a badass. Very few wines combining power, elegance, and finesse like vega. Totally delicious. #vegasicilia #valbuena #elegance #masculine #mouthwatering — 4 years ago

Chesler Cabernet Franc Merlot 2004

#LOVE this #2004 #Chesler #Selene #Meritage ($50) #LeDuWines #Nyc This wine is made my one of the trailblazer #FemaleWinemakers in #CA #MiaKlein who prices her wine as she feels she should, not as Napa prices command. Interestingly, this is a Brooding, Muscular, Strapping, #Masculine wine... #Ironic ? As it's made by a #Woman ? :) Intense Spice on the attack (when it first hits your tongue), then immediately #Savory ( #Herbal Sage, Roasted Green Bell Peppers, Tomato Leaf) #BlackFruit (Cassis, Blackberries, Black Cherries & Blueberries... Milk Chocolate, BIG #Spice #BigRedChewingGum (#Cinnamon ), Clove, Black Pepper, #Floral Violet SO much #Complexity So many Layers... I could go on & on. The finish is long... It's Savory, and the Spice sits on the top of the cheeks of your mouth & the top of your tongue (just like when u spit out your stick of Big Red Gum! ;) I can't say enough about this wine. For this price, this wine should have a Cult Following. I almost don't want to tell people about it, so I can buy the rest of the bottles for my self. 👏👏👏🍷👍 60% #CabernetFranc 22% #Merlot 18% #CabernetSauvignon 💃 — 5 years ago

Allegro Con Spirito

Monte Hiniesta Toro Tinto de Toro 2009

Beautiful deep color. Do NOT I repeat, do not even take a sip for at least 5-10 min. Can't even explain how bad that first sip was! Just opened - almost tossed it. I Let it sit after reading reviews - waited before tossing and it opened up nicely. Quite shocking at the difference. #Masculine aroma (leather, black currant and #chocolate) rather flat and warm at first then erupting leaving a #spicy oak finish on the palate. The kind of spicy finish that leaves your tongue a bit dry. If you're into a spicy finish- this is well worth the $15 - super great find for a Tuesday night. — 5 years ago
