A very well made wine though alcoholic. Went very well with Spanish tapas and Paella. Could do with more complexity

Today I arrived on Planet Pingus 🚀

A special treat for our vacation & my first Pingus that’s been on my wishlist for soooo long 😍 Found at €950 in a restaurant, which for a 100 Parker Pointer that retails at £1,450 in 🇬🇧, I had to try 😊 & It sure did not disappoint 💗 It is one of the best wines I’ve EVER had 👏 See photos on Instagram 😉

Mrs E sat there trying this and said “I’ve decided my life is not too shabby” 🤣😂🤣

📍 Dominio de Pingus - Pingus 2004

🥩 Paired w/ a shed load of red meats (see pics ⏩)

🏵 99 points w/ 100 potential given 5-10 years & better than Ch. Margaux 1990 by far 👍 just needs a little more dry tannin integration 😉

🍇 Tempranillo

💥 14.8% ABV but not evident

🍷 Opaque ruby w/ brick edge

👃 Explosion of rich coffee, thick chocolate, earthy dark cherry, spiced raspberry, black Forest gateaux & oak w/ black berry fruits, date, prune & herbs - it’s a Spanish aromatic orgasm

👄 Med+ body of super creamy silky punchy yet refined dark cherry oozing through decadent chocolate & raspberry coulis w/ mocha & lashings of choc cherry gateaux

🎯 Long choc cherry gateaux full on mouth coating explosion w/ a coffee shot chaser

👉 Mrs E has something to say about this wine so check the first comment from @loularo on Instagram 🤣
