Bodegas Casa Juan S.A.

Señor de Lesmo Rioja Gran Reserva Tempranillo Blend 2010

A dark and dense deep burgundy in the glass with tiny purple accents and no signs of bricking. The nose is rather delightful but you have to give it time. Primarily oak and tobacco notes for the first few hours but the fruit begins to express itself more and more as time goes by. Blue and blackberries with a touch of rhubarb and plums. There’s an earthy element that begins to shine on day two.

There are good values in wine and then there’s this. At fourteen years this is still fresh as a daisy and oh so vibrant. Old school and just so correct. A nice level of complexity and full of personality and charm for days. Full bodied, dry, and savory. The oak never threatens to overwhelm in the mouth, instead you get leather and smoke with enough black fruit. A medium long finish keeps you coming back. An easy favorite.

Jumilla Red Blend 2020

Took a bottle to a mini family reunion . . . disappeared in no time. Dark fruit, warm spice, smooth tannins. Would definitely buy again. — 5 months ago

Finca Las Moras

Reserva San Juan Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2018

Needed a steak tonight and found this place that has two of my favorites…Beef Wellington and ribeye cap. I went with the ribeye tonight. $80 pesos per ounce. Delicious. Should have upgraded the wine for this experience. — 2 years ago

Great wine. Tried as a sample at H‑E‑B and loved it. Not too sweet. Has a Smokey semisweet flavor. Also reasonable price - around $12.00 — 7 months ago

Realm Cellars

Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

From back when I could afford Realm (was one of the early people on their mailing list thanks to a chance meeting with Juan Mercado), this wine was absolutely breathtaking. Classic Napa cab…and one of the few 10s I’ve ever given out. Just amazing. — 2 years ago
