Edulis Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 2012

Rrrrrrrraowr! Mushroom and potting soil, prime rib and rosemary. Get the fudge outta my way! Can’t! Dark chocolate dominates in graphite-plum and agro-tannin cedar, cinnamon and tobacco force the issue and the black currant is AGGRESSIVELY assertive! Got black pepper in white pepper sauce! Iron rich liver grill without the bitter; shellfish shell, prune and blackberry show sour aspects and oak tannins spread the word. Spanish oak and sensibility prevail. Beast and the best of such.

Atalier Rías Baixas Albariño 2019

Pure electricity! Although a bit more jagged, this Albariño has concentration that trends toward Sketch. Acid heads should appreciate the cut that this citrus bomb asserts with heaps of lemon, lime zest, grapefruit and golden melon. There’s an underlying component of wet stone and white flower aromas that compliment the briny, sea salt subtleties on the nose and palate...hallmarks of benchmark Albariños. This wine screams for a bowl of mussels, charred octopus and an ocean breeze. Good stuff.

Marqués de Murrieta

Ygay Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 1970

1970 Marques de Murrieta Ygay Reseva


50-year old wine. Drinking an old wine is adventurous and exciting. Upon opening, it was clear from the aroma and color that the wine was still alive! We could still taste the remaining fruits supported by the good balance of acidity. The wine went downhill after two glasses. With social-distancing in place, it was a quiet night but a wonderful moment tasting its history.



50年前のワイン、果たしてどんな味わいを見せてくれるのか。古いワインを開けるはワクワク、ドキドキしますね。開けた時の香り、色合いから、これはまだいける!と期待が高まります。未だ僅かにフルーツ感が感じられ、酸とのバランスも悪くない。最初の2杯以降は下り坂でしたが、歴史を感じることのできた静かな一時でした。

Aalto

Ribera Del Duero Tempranillo 2014

Deep purple hue with some garnet. Extraction on the glass and medium-plus tearing. Nose offers black fruit, such as fresh blackberries, black cherry, and currant notes; also molasses, clove, spice, cured meat, and vegetal notes. Tartness and acidity on the palate, lending balance. Also strong tannins with anise and dusty leather notes on the palate. Vintage 2014. 15% ABV. #aalto #riberadelduero #riberadelduerowine #tintofino #spanishwine #oldworld #oakagedwine #meseta #winewednesday #winedownwednesdays — 4 years ago

Mas La Plana Penedès Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Really dense and structured in a beautiful sense. Oaky leaves, twigs and green acorns on the nose; black cherries, violets, cloves and peppercorn. Oak tannins lap the lower sides of your tongue and teeth. Tar, crushed violet, black currant, cranberry, graphite: yes and more please! Thought I should get on this one sooner, but could age a while too! .

9.0

Very pale ruby lightly cloudy color. Almost seems like a Rosé. Very Pinot Noirish #Garnacha #Spain #spanishwine with Coravin it didn’t express all its nuances. Once uncorked it had fine red fruit and cedar and sweet smoke aromas and flavors. Interesting. — 4 years ago

This vintage is the best to date. Very restrained and keeping a medium body and high acidity. The aromas are of light toast, cocoa powder and red ground pepper. #graciano #parker #navarra #spain #spanishwine — 4 years ago
