Grenache Blend, Grenache more

5/20/2015 - worbx Likes this wine: NR

Good, but quite oaky. Has a dark ruby color, a dark, sharp aroma with plenty of oak, and some alcohol. The flavor is more fruit, a little less oak, with tannins on the strong side. Not my favorite crianza, but decent for the price ($16 for me).

Tasted at about 60°F.

Appearance: Bright and clear, it has medium ruby color, with fading rims and legs.
Nose: Clean, with medium intensity aromas of red fruit such as raspberry and redcurrant, some black fruit of blackberry, dried fruit of prune, pungent spice of licorice, sweet spice of cloves, kernel notes of toasted hazelnut, oak notes of toast, animal notes of leather, maturity notes of savory. The wine is developing.
Palate: Dry with medium (-) acidity, the wine has medium (-) tannin of ripe and silky texture, medium (+) alcohol and medium (+) body, with medium intensity flavors of red fruit such as redcurrant and raspberry, black fruit of bilberry and plum, oak notes of vanilla, sweet spice of cloves. The wine has a medium finish.
Conclusion: Very good quality Spain Rioja with nice intensity on the nose, showing a highly complex aromas which is surprising and simply showing layer and layer of different characters, the wine has good balance and showing the typicity of the region, obviously on the best representation. If only the length could be longer it would truly be a memorable wine. Ready to drink now, the wine is not for further ageing.

Decanted for 2 hours. It's been 4 years since I had this last. Fruit is not as pronounced as it was. This is a simple Rioja that is drinking well. No rush to drink my last bottle.

Tasted blind. Dark ruby turning transparent at the rim. The nose is fruity, giving off candied cherry, licorice and vanilla. The palate is full-bodied, silky with mild, lovely tannins. Flavors of dark cherry, eucalyptus and chocolate are heightened by its bright, lively acidity. Finishes elegantly long with hints of spice. Drink now until 2020. This is really good. I fell in love with it, albeit didn't score so high against the line-up.

Fruit forward, expressive spicy plums, red and black berries, lots of vanilla, extracted but and plush but not overly so, seems quite elegant. Medium body, suede like texture. May be lacks complexity and the finish could be longer, but good wine nonetheless.

This is a lovely fruit forward Rioja with nice dry finish. Touch of herbs and went down well with a char grilled pork chop

When I first tasted it out of the bottle, I was disappointed. No tannin, some dark fruits, that characteristic rioja heavy oak, pretty good, but in light of the Priorat Ardilles I had recently, which costs half, good wasnt good enough. Then I decanted it 2 h. Well done. Dark dusty berry, earth, licorice, dusty tannins on the long finish. Some pepper and mushroom in the finish.

Visual: Nice dark ruby color. It is about 30-35% opaque with tight slow forming legs.

The nose: Is a bit challenged. minerals, raisins an oak.

Da Flava: Nice balance of oak and raisins, very spicy and very good.

The wine: Very well balanced. Mild tannins, fairly dry. Finish is a bit short. Definitely allow to breathe, minimum 45 minutes. First swig was battle to glass as I made dinner, I was afraid I was going to have to throw it out. Mellows nicely. Almost too nicely, though. I wish the nose were better, and the finish were longer... if it were this would be 91-92 points, IMO.

This is in a very happy place. Strawberries and earthy, brambly cherry fruit, refined tannins and very good length. Looking very much Rioja from years long gone, for all it's 'modern' credentials

I tasted this with squid tapas and loved it. Chatted with Alvaro Palacios about the wine and shared a bottle and squid, it was a memorable experience. Retasted on 2/15 with the full lineup, and it wowed me again.

Complex nose, bright and floral with saline notes, oyster shell and crushed rocks, all on top of rich white peach and apricot fruit. Creamy body yet bright and focused on the palate. As far as fruit, I get white peach, limes and apricots, all of it fresh and bright. Accents of seashells, saline, dried white flowers, all of the flavors are punchy and alive yet creamy and rich. I really enjoy this 100% Viura (which is aged on the lees in old oak barrels for 11 months). A vibrant, long, and memorable bottle.

Vibrant cherry colored. Bright red cherries and strawberries on the nose, rose hips, some spice rub. A vibrant and juicy red-fruit-driven wine (cranberries, strawberries, cherries), but the wine also has some minerality and freshness. Notes of clay soil, dried leaves and chestnut add complexity. A fun and food-friendly wine that’s vibrant and easy to drink. Half Garnacha, half Tempranillo, this is a young wine aged only for six months in barrel.

Red cherries, bright currants, lots of flowers on the nose along with the earth, tobacco and deeper notes of incense sticks. Medium-bodied with a chewy structure and some freshness around the edges. Lovely silkiness to the wine, allowing the red cherries and jammy raspberries to roll across the palate. Complex notes of soil, roasted chestnut, coffee and tobacco mix with sweeter elements of vanilla cola and mocha. Just a bit richer and more refined than the 2011. 80% Garnacha and 20% Tempranillo.

Bright red cherries and currants on the nose, some leaves and herbal components, tobacco and cracked pepper. Medium-bodied, medium acid, a very approachable wine, gushing with red cherries, raspberries and currants. Nice spice elements to accent the bright red fruit. Notes of soil and herbs mix with cola, vanilla roasted nuts, and coffee. New oak integrated rather well. Very approachable but not simple. 70% Garnacha 25% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo.

Rustic bouquet with red berries, leather, minerals and spices. On the palate juicy cherries and red berries, firm acidity and round tannin with a firm bite. Also some vanilla. Wait a few years. 88+

Still bright and floral with sea salt aromas, but I get more nutty notes, pineapple and honey. Calmer, still racy acidity, I taste dried apricot and limes, but more accentuated are the mineral notes and the dried honey and potpourri. Still plenty alive, I like where this is going and would love to taste it again in a few more years. 100% Viura fermented in old oak vats.

Looks like liquid seedless strawberry jam. That carries over into the nose of strawberry, earth, and cola. Light to medium bodied, raspberries, chocolate cherries, white pepper, soft tannins, and a sweet sappy finish. Much better on night 2.
