Wild berry, earth spice, bit of pickle barrel, minerality, hint of tar, med tannin and cocoa on the finish. Doing some justice with filet and sautéed mushrooms. Pardon the paper plate, feeling a bit lazy :)

Estoy enamorado! I’m in Love! The Fruit jumps out of the bottle on the nose reminding me of a Strawberry Jolly Rancher. This wine takes the best of the best. It’s got a body like a French Pinot, the fruit forwardness of a Merlot, and grabs the Oak like a Cabernet and It finishes like a Beaujolais. Red Cherry, Strawberry and Oak run neck and neck from the start to the checkered flag! And for less than $23. What!?! A Winner!

Long legs, 10. No scent really hits you, but it smells subtly fruity and oaky. Very dry, lingering taste. Not a favorite, but as I sip it I understand the appeal.

Such good Tempranillo is very rare for me. Taste is changing a lots in just 15 minutes and finally it reached quite concentrated and coffee like flavor. This should be created by years. @, Aw Osteria, 180705

Weird... If it was a blind taste, I'd swear this was young. As a 2010, I am unpleasantly surprised. A Sambuca nose. With clove or some Christmasy spice. Not digging it. Maybe it will pair with this fish but I'm not optimistic. Big letdown after starting the night with a bottle of Veuve. Shout out to peeps @Bill Bender and @Shay Aldriedge And @Kimberly Anderson .
