Ribera Del Duero Tempranillo 2014

Deep purple hue with some garnet. Extraction on the glass and medium-plus tearing. Nose offers black fruit, such as fresh blackberries, black cherry, and currant notes; also molasses, clove, spice, cured meat, and vegetal notes. Tartness and acidity on the palate, lending balance. Also strong tannins with anise and dusty leather notes on the palate. Vintage 2014. 15% ABV. #aalto #riberadelduero #riberadelduerowine #tintofino #spanishwine #oldworld #oakagedwine #meseta #winewednesday #winedownwednesdays — 5 months ago

Pazo de Bruxas (Familia Torres)

Rías Baixas Albariño 2014

Pale yellow, with a slight rim variation. Medium/low legs. A lil acidic as the Citrus pours through. Refreshing! #whitewine #spanishwine #riasbaixas #pazodasbruxas — 3 years ago

Marqués de Cáceres

Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Great value Marques de Caveres Rioja from the well received 2010 vintage. Full bodied and powerful this delicious wine delivers lots of dark berry, plum, pepper, leather and a subtle earthiness in the mouth. While the tannins are still ripe, it does seem balanced and should last another 5-7 years.

Viña San Román Toro Tempranillo 2005

13 years in and still a joy (with a good bit of life left if you want to hold). Aromas of jammy black cherry and bacon fat. Lush cherry and blueberry backed with licorice and mocha, moderate buoying acidity and still-firm tannins. Yum! #tintadetoro #toro #spanishwine — 2 years ago

Reserva Vendimia Seleccionada Rioja Tempranillo 2008

Great value classic Rioja. At 8 years old this wine is a deep ruby in the glass with a hint of dried dark fruit on the nose. The palate delivers developing, yet rustic dark fruit, vanilla, leather with a whiff of light smoke and wood. Decanted for one hour, it was nicely balanced and complex enough to keep for another 5-7 years or more.

Celler Vall Llach

Idus Priorat Garnacha Blend 2010

Black raspberry, cinnamon dusted blackberries, shaved dark chocolate and chocolate mint behind a velvety curtain of suede and licorice perfumes. Rich, chewy dried blackberry, mushroom, hot, turned, black soil, Mexican coffee, black currant, cedar, cinnamon apple skins and licorice extract bolstered by firm and persistent tannins with iron shavings and grill debris. Lovely wine with a steady, burgeoning intensity and expansive depth! Classic Priorat! #priorat #valldellach #spanishwines #spanishwine #2010 #2010ftw — 3 years ago

Bodegas Felix Callejo

Crianza Selección de Viñedos de la Familia Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2005

Day 3: Heavy mushrooms framed by sage and cedar, with chamomile and pork fat. There is persimmon, nutmeg, dried grapes, tar, dark raisin bread, tobacco leaf, and poppy seed. This thing was an unwieldy wooden baton on Saturday night; a real leather daddy. It has since opened into a lumberjack in a leather tunic felling a large birch near a meadow of scorched wildflower. He’s sweating, and lightly peppered. Grilled apple, eel skin, dried black currant, dried roses, rawhide, marinated plum, and a tart persistence that is neither graphite, or smoke, but something similar with a dry-rubbed saline-sweetness in the mix. Delicious! Took forever, and I knew it was a bad idea to open so young, but we did it! #callejo #riberadeldueronothing #riberadelduero #NoSpainNoGain #spanishwines #spanishwine #FelixCallejo #bigredwines — 2 years ago

Baron de Ley

Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2010

Delicious 2010 Baron De Ley Gran Reserva . Mainly Tempranillo (85%) with some Graciano, the grapes are from the small Cenicero vineyard located in Rioja Alta. Matured for 2 years in 50% French oak and 50% American oak, with a further 3 years in the bottle before release. On the palate it is full bodied, soft and smooth in a classic Rioja style. Dark fruit, tobacco, black pepper with mild balsamic notes. The acidity and tannins are well balanced and give a complex and long finish. Great wine at $29.

Crianza Rioja Tempranillo 2008

Tempranillo from Rioja. Dark red fruit, still lots of wood and spice. Also a very prominent earthy quality, maybe some Brett here . #rioja #tempranillo #spanishwine — 3 years ago
