Black Label Crianza Rioja Tempranillo 2018

No formal notes. At a very nice Indian Restaurant in Kensington, London. A highly savoury medium weight palate with masses of fine dry tannins - a good food wine lacking a little with mid palate fruit but a little red fruit in this young Tempranillo. — 5 days ago

Tinto Pesquera

Reserve Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2010

I love old Pesquera and generally love the range from Joven to Gran Reserva. This reserva Especial wasn’t bad but it wasn’t quite what I was after. It had a taste that was beyond a pleasant anis and seemed more deep and jammy than the stuff I really like from Pesquera. Anyway, not really complaining but it wasn’t as ethereal as I was hoping it would be based on experiences back to the early-1980s, when I was a child. Had it at the Hawksmoor Knightsbridge with a ribeye, asparagus and way-too-buttery mushrooms. — 11 hours ago

Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild-Vega Sicilia

Macán Clásico Rioja Tempranillo 2015

Very dry, especially for a Spanish red, to the point where it was hard to identify flavors. Still enjoyable, but I like other Spanish better. — 5 days ago

Torremilanos Ojo Gallo Tempranillo 2020

“Ojo Gallo’, Castellano for ‘rooster eye’ (in other words, what the French call ‘oeil de perdrix’), hearkens back to the traditional clarete style of the region. This dark rosé (light red?) is a field blend of very old vines of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Bobal, Monastrell, Viura, Albillo and Malvasia co-fermented in cement and raised for 8 months in used barrels before bottling without added sulfur” — 25 days ago

Rioja Vino Rosado Garnacha Tempranillo 2017

Lopez Heredia rose lovers alert: a garnacha/Tempranillo blend from the husband of one of the Lopez daughters. More perky & fresh than its Lopez ancestor but still layered with tangerine peel, grapefruit pith, & some Unami. Great concentration & has a more new penny copper color. For about 30$ I’ll take it, especially since Lopez rose fetches 100$. — 3 days ago
