Love this stuff - love this grape, big fan of Alvaro Palacios… perfumed nose of red fruit and flowers, red flowers, and gentle spices. Smooth graceful on the palate, elegantly structured, generous red berried fruit, spice, licorice all wrapped in velvet — 14 days ago

Numanthia Toro Tempranillo 2006

Masculine, still pretty tannic, acidity provides freshness.
Dark fruit, cocoapowder, coffee grounds, charred oak, bbq, ferrous minerality.
Holding up very well, cruising through midlife.

Valbuena 5° Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Blend 2012

9.4

Bouquet of cinnamon, anise, fig, and worn leather commingled herb-scented red and dark cherry. Rich yet gentle palate with silky texture. Soft elegant tannins coats the mouth like wearing baby cashmere.

This is a bit more advanced than I thought it would be at 10 years - not a complain.

100% Tempranillo, 2012 is the first vintage without Merlot.

Rueda Verdejo 2017

WOW! Fantastic nose with some reductive and oxy notes. In the mouth however a nice orange/lime freshness is battling with these reductive tones. Long finish! — a month ago

A friend surprised me with this latest vintage release Unico, after we had the Valbuena of the same vintage earlier in the day.
A glorious wine from start to finish. Everything I expected from a wine of this caliber. And we were only scratching the surface.

Crianza Ribera Del Duero Tempranillo 2018

Under rated on this app. A nice but not overpowering oak finish, with full body and medium acid to make it all around well balanced despite the complex bouquet. — 24 days ago
