Third times a charm! App keeps crashing on me.
thanks
@Les Doss for the gift!

Tarragon and pomegranate seed permeate the nose, and give a the impression of a huge punch getting ready to smack you up side the pallete.

Yet, the wine comes on light and full juice blackberry, then starts its filtration through gravel, and root. Valencia orange like acidity and young sapling tannins bring this wine to a very interesting finish. Yum.

Great to revisit. Pure, elegant, perfumed, and terroir driven grenache. Great mineral backbone, laced with spiced plum, tobacco and roasted herb, potpourri and crushed granite.

Garnacha at its finest, sourced from vineyards at about 800 meters around Rozas del Puerto Real, and aged in old oak foudres. Fresh and lively with exquisite aromas of strawberries, raspberries, lavender, thyme, licorice, and crushed rock. A light bodied red with sweet red fruits on entry, crunchy refreshing midpalate with some umami notes followed by saline minerality that intermixes with exotic spices. Easy to drink and quite refreshing.

Spice, dusty earth, red fruit, stemmy, hot, fresh, touch of brett.

This might be my affordable red of the year. Bottle after bottle, this stuff just blows me the fuck away!

This may be one of the most exciting Garnachas I've ever had. Elegant, long and pretty with just a kiss of brett that doesn't mask the fruit or granitic terroir. Calls to mind Rayas but with the playfulness of Gramenon. How am I going to keep my hands off the Las Umbrías & Tumba del Rey Moro?

Been trying to track down the Comando G wines for ages, and though this may only be their village-level wine it did not disappoint. Leaping from the glass initially with aromas of Vicks 44, red licorice, and smoky spice, the wine quickly tightens up and starts to betray its granitic heritage, as well as a delightfully complexing barnyard-y, Bretty edge. Whole clusters lend a wonderful, angular frame of tannin that help to enclose a ripe, glossy core of red stone fruit (cherry, plum). The minerality here gives this otherwise punchy, mouthwatering wine a really effortless feel, like a raptor riding thermals. Gobsmacking stuff.

We’ve been talking about this producer for a while, so excited to have found the appellation level, even if the vineyard designated bottles are few and far between. Begins with all graphite and granite on the nose, sharp and clean. Opens into reserved fruit on the palate and earthy florals like tulip or orchid. More time in the glass allows for a bit of a saline and meaty character to appear. Whole cluster, but you wouldn’t know it right away, the structure is decidedly not oak tannin, angular, but not overwhelmingly so. Paired with an arrabiata sauce, which softens the white pepper, brings out the red fruit, and surprisingly doesn’t negatively showcase the alcohol content. It’s enticing! Keeps ya checking back for more.
