Sipping Fine Wine

A joint venture of Jorge Ordonez, Bodegas Borsao and others, in conjunction with Chris Ringland. Dark Ruby with dark berry fruit aromas, from 40+ year old vines and aged for 16 months in oak. On the palate flavors of ripe plum and black fruits with cacao, spice and smoky notes. Soft tannins, vivid acidity ending with gentle oak spice on the long finish. Wines from Spain are superb and at great values, especially Bodegas Alto Moncayo wines.

Leaded gasoline nose. More heavy metal on the palate. Dark fruit and earth.

Highly extracted modern Grenache. Dark fruit, oak spice on the nose. Dark fruit, baking spice, alcohol and tannins in the mouth. Medium finish. Clean, proper winemaking, but entering cocktail wine territory at 15.5% alcohol.

Bergamot, cranberries, lavender, subtle earl grey tea.

Wow. Perfect balance. Hits all of my favorite taste profile notes.

Uppercut punch to the jawline with the welcome acidity, tart blueberry jam pie, and even some spice notes that I can’t really pinpoint.

I just know this would pair exceptionally well with some bake lamb. When a wine makes you crave a specific food, they did something right. And also I just went for an 8 mile run and I’m hungry.

This wine just makes me happy. And it’s kind of hard to explain why. And that only happens about 1/10 bottles.

An easy go to Grenache. Great producer and solid QPR.

Nice wine, but questionable company. Craig is a nutter.

Very smooth with dark fruit flavor Soft tannins. Would likely improve and open with some decanting Grenache from Spain - my first but will be looking for this wine again
