Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía 2019

This is a good bottle that packs it’s weight into a very affordable price. Complex and lingering - it goes a long way. Medium body with bright acids, tasteful concentrated blackberry, and a touch of pepper. Great with this country fried steak. — 20 days ago

Ultreia La Claudina Bierzo Godello 2019

Here’s a Godello wine hailing from Bierzo, Spain.

After letting this beauty breathe, open, and warm up a bit - wow - it offers layered notes of baked apple, pear tart, quince, cantaloupe, lemon peel, chamomile, honeysuckle, crushed stone, sweet cream, creme brûlée, salted caramel, and brioche.

This wine is medium gold, dry and has medium acidity, medium alcohol, and a medium finish. It’s balanced and complex.

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2010

I know I committed infanticide but I wanted to share a special bottle with a favorite cousin who never has an opportunity to drink a wine like this . A powerful , and complex nose of blueberries, florals, and red fruit. On the palate the wine was constantly changing and continuously putting weight on. Deep and concentrated flavors of  plums, chocolate , tobacco and licorice that suppressed the wine’s tannic structure.  — 9 days ago

Fantastic. Love this wine! I quit worrying about drinking a bottle too soon. The occasion is more important and you probably picked up nuances and character in the wine you wouldn’t later.

Muestra Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2006

Shy at first but becomes rapidly approachable with air (30 mins). Voluptuous, silky, jammy and just a bit decadent. Very complimentary of hearty pasta and grilled veal. — 13 days ago
