Blackberry, leather, vanilla, cedar. Tannic but approachable.
This will do.

Dense and a bit chalky. Curious to see how it will open up...and it does open up...still dry and earthy but complex layers of fruit and spice. Nice. Not the greatest value at $25, but solid.

Young but expressive Muga. Oak aromas led ripe fruit, firm tannins, and acidity on the high side. An unfiltered wine where the tactile sensation added to the enjoyment of the taste. Like to try this one again in 5 years.

Nice, but a bit dominated by American oak.

Dark plum, chocolate, Indian spice and orange peel blossom from this Tempranillo. Soft tannins and good acidity suggest an early drinker.

$Spain wine. Tempranillo. Great vintage. Dark cherries spicy notes soft tannins. Delicious complex wine. Reserve. 2012. Unfiltered. Would have been perfect if it said MAGA🇺🇸
