Palacio del Conde

Gran Reserva Valencia Tempranillo 2011

This is a difficult red wine to appreciate straight after opening. It’s flat with exaggerated acidity. Give it a day after in the wine fridge and it blossoms significantly. Now there’s a subtle black currant aroma mixed with leather; I still taste robust acidity but it’s better integrated with soft tannins on a long finish. There are definitely more accessible and superior Spanish #tempranillo wines out there, but it’s a good bottle to sip over several days. — 4 months ago

Conde de Valdemar Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2008

Vintage 2008 / Confession: I am really bad in recognising #tempranillo. So I ‘punish’ myself regularly to taste and drink it 🤨 Today it makes me really happy. A nice roof tiles colour, a smell with spices, warm cooked summerfruit, but above all: E L E G A N C E. Beautiful mouthfeel, satin, smooth. A wine you can easily underestimate, with finesse. Probably I would not recognise it as #rioja tasted blind, it is such a fine wine. Great effort of this Spanish winegrower. / technical: 85% tempranillo 10% graciano and 5% maturana. 30 months aging in French oak barrels. — a year ago

Monasterio de Santa Cruz Tarragona Monastrell Tempranillo 2016

This wine punches above its weight but it really needs a solid hour decant. It starts out one-dimensional. There’s a healthy tartness that then gives way to some interesting spice as the wine opens up. #monastrell #tempranillo — 4 months ago

Deep color. Almost inky. Savage aromas and flavors. Pure blackberries and blueberries. Textural palate and tannins, just that right amount of scratchiness. #tempranillo #riberadelduero — 9 months ago

Vinos Jeromín

Puerta de Alcalá Reserva Vinos de Madrid Tempranillo 2013

Vintage 2013 / solid wine from #tempranillo #vinosdemadrid with high alcohol (14,5) not disturbing, a wine with good fruit and potential, not a Wow-experience but so satisfying on Sunday evening with a beef stew. — 10 months ago

Señorío de P. Peciña Vendimia Seleccionada Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2016

Usually fresh and direct, but this one is all stewed prunes, jammy texture and heat on the finish. Hopefully, it’s not a trend. #rioja #pecina #tempranillo — 9 months ago
