Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2014

Un tempranillo mezcla de rioja. este es mi tercero tempranillo desde rioja. espero sentirme un caballero. first scent was coke (cola) on the cork. hue is extremely dark. No clarity much turbidity in broad daylight. slight note of sweet cherry. much barrel and deep tannic tones of turbulence i find terrific. sour cherry on the tongue. Really dazzling deep wine brings the whole picnic and woodsy fairytale all together #tempranilloblend — 4 days ago

Viña Tondonia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Always great. My favorite Spanish wine, and I’ve reviewed it quite a few times. Great acidity, elegance, and oak integration with savory character and subtle fruit, wild berries, tomato, tobacco, herbal and floral. — 16 days ago

Viña Tondonia Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2011

A friend brought this wine to me, what a gift! A new favorite when it comes to red wine. The vibrant color was astonishing, and the red fruit notes were pleasant. Very rich & dry, yet smooth & balanced at the same time — 4 days ago

Viña Cubillo Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2009

The somm raves and accolades are well justified for this #rioja legend. This current release Vina Cubillo presents dried plum, Luxardo cherry, sweet tobacco, porcini mushroom aromas. Perfectly integrated on the palate, acid and fruit in harmony, long finish with elegant tannins. Cubillo drinks richer than the 2008 Viña Tondonia I had a couple of years back. Both are lovely wines but I give the hedonistic edge to this 2009. Interestingly flexible on food pairing, equally delicious with Gambas al Ajillo and fresh sliced Spanish Chorizo. — 17 days ago

Viña Bosconia Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2012

Ordinarily Lopez gets high marks. Rightly so. And while this had deep red and black fruit and cedar notes, the oak and tannin was just over the top. — a month ago
