Terroir al Límit

Arbossar Priorat Carignan 2016

Blue-red berries layered with a pervasive malty sweetness and cocoa-accented depths. Red jolly ranchers rolled in iron and mineral dust. Robust; a bit inky, but light-footed; lively acids running through. Classy bottle; aging beautifully with a long way to go. — 18 days ago

Love Red North Coast Carignan Blend 2021

Very pleasant easy drinking. Light tangy, watermelon-y carignan. Good for pairing with trashy reality TV show watching :-D — 15 hours ago

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2000

Beautiful wine. So earthy, leathery, and powerful. This wine still has years of life left. A nearly perfect Cabernet Sauvignon blend with a Mediterranean twist. It tastes like an extremely high-end Chateauneuf-du-Pape dominated by a high-end Napa Cabernet. Perfect with my Greek lamb chops. I wish I could have left it open longer but I consumed it at my favorite BYOB Greek restaurant. If you find this wine at a reasonable price, buy it. At $90 a steal. — 10 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Geyserville Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2016

Wine #2 of Ridge night and more with dessert. More bramble and density than the Boatman. Less fruit and the fruit was darker and more black than blue. Also enjoyable — a month ago

Doix Costers de Vinyes Velles Priorat Carignan - Grenache Blend 2008

Mid to dark Ruby in colour. Black and Red fruits - aromatics of blackberry, note of raspberry, earthy and sandy notes. A medium to full bodied palate - rich and enduring. Costers de Vinyes Vielles comes from the company’s oldest vines. A blend of 110 year old Carinena (55%) and 90 year old Garnacha (45%). Aged for 16 months in French oak. One of the 1001 Wines. 14.5% ABV. Love Priorat wines after our visit in 2022. — a month ago

Certainly a better region than the attention it gets/deserves on the world stage.

@David T Agreed. I would like to see other Spanish districts like Rioja and Galicia. Also into Portugal.

Château Musar

Hochar Père & Fils Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2020

Dark garnet purple. Funkily inviting nose of brambly montmorency cherry, dark cranberry, and currant (red & black). Echoed on the medium full palate which adds dark raspberry and a hint of patent leather. All supported by medium plus acidity and wrapped in velvety medium plus tannins. Finish is long and continues the entire palate along with those tannins. Rustic without the earth best describes this affordable and food-friendly Lebanese red. Rustic-inspired (I chose shepherd's pie) or Mediterranean fare will naturally pair. Drink now through 2030. — a month ago
