Parcelas del Bierzo Godello

Bright apple and citrus, medium bodied this does not try to be Burgundy like some (very good) Godello can. Great intro Godello from the heir apparent's own label in Bierzo at Raul Perez' family operation. Awesome deal at sun $25. — 2 months ago

VS Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León Tempranillo Blend 2012

Powerhouse from Spain. A bit too much for me but I can imagine that the admirers of these kind of wines will really love it. — 21 days ago

Réserve Caveau Moulin-à-vent Vieilles Vignes 2009

Pretty concentrated ruby dress. Evolved nose evoking Burgundy. In the mouth a beautiful smoothness, concentration, between evolved notes and fruit still very lively. A pretty bottle full of refinement. It can be drunk on its own.
Can still age 5/10 years, maybe more.

Jolie robe rubis concentrée. Nez évolué évoquant la Bourgogne. En bouche une belle onctuosité, de la concentration, entre notes évoluées et fruit encore bien vif. Une jolie quille pleine de raffinement. Ça se boit tout seul. Peut vieillir encore 5/10 ans voir plus.

Bodega del Palacio de los Frontaura y Victoria

Nexus Cosecha Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2015

Bright ruby red color. Lovely aromas of tar, leather, charcoal and ripe red fruit. The pallet is bright, featuring that same red fruit. A bit of a woody note on the clean finish. Silky and smooth tannins and lovely balance. Easy drinker. Shows how some bottle age can smooth out and tone down a wine. — 6 days ago

Parajes Bierzo Mencía 2019

Ung och dekanterad en dryg timme. Relativt hög syra och finlemmad. Toner av hallon och jordgubb med bra mineralitet och viss struktur. Bra med mat med hög syra. På gränsen till att upplevas tunn — a day ago

Bodegas Portia

Roble Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2016

Pretty good. Deep Tempranillo fruit slathered with a fair amount of oak, but it integrated with air. Enjoyed with grilled burgers. — 9 days ago

Pintia Toro Tempranillo 2017

Luscious dark fruits are the draw here. The ample acidic and tannic structure can barely rein in the richness of the fruits.
Need time to settle, but I did enjoy the sheer power of a young Toro.

Unico Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 1967

From a nice old-looking bottle with a fill into the neck. Reddish tawny color. Bright fruit-forward nose. Notes of red fruit, spice, red flowers, mint and some moist forest earth. Great aromatics. Decent fruit remaining with nicely integrated tannins and great, balanced structure. This improved over the evening... quiet at first (despite 4+ hours of decanter time), but showed its stuff later on. — 8 days ago

Orot Toro Tempranillo Roble 2018


Lovely Spanish Tinto del Toro with a purple colour and strong fruit and hint of oak on the nose. Lots of bramble, dark fruits and smidgeon of chocolate giving this a bold and smooth wine with a subtle sweetness.

I have seen comments on this being an unsophisticated or simple wine, and not being a expert that may be true, but I thoroughly enjoyed this paired with Chicken pesto pasta and a tomato and beetroot salad.
