2012 Alonso Angulo Flor de Sanctus

Arlanza Tempranillo more

2/12/2016 - nzinkgraf wrote: NR

Tar and celery seed aromas. Yeah, lots of celery aromas. On the palate, that provides quite a bit of freshness. Fun and interesting wine. Also has some sauvage elements as well. Fun and fresh palate. This is 100% Tempranillo.
Arlanza is a region between Cigales, RdD and Rioja. Main town is Lerma, south of Burgos. 23 producers in this region. Lerma is half way between Madrid and Bilbao. Vineyards are up at 1000m. Fields blends, Mencia, Albillo, etc. Used to be VdT Burgos.

2009 Bodegas Tobelos Rioja Tahón de Tobelos Reserva

Tempranillo more

2/12/2016 - nzinkgraf wrote: NR

More of a muted nose after the 2011 Crianza. A little spice cake to the nose and a lot of spice to the palate. Neither to modern or too traditional. Very solid wine with great complexity on the palate. Some dried floral and sandalwood.

2011 Bodegas Tobelos Rioja Tobelos Crianza

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

2/12/2016 - nzinkgraf wrote: NR

Winemaker here made the two-100pt Numanthia wines back in the day. 'Soft edge.' Hungarian, American and French oak. Ripe and modern nose, but with a swampy green undertone. Very solid palate, with nice structure. Medium tannin. Red fruit. Excellent vintage.

2011 Gomez Cruzado Rioja Crianza

Tempranillo more

2/12/2016 - nzinkgraf wrote: NR

Sits up against La Rioja Alta, Muga, Roda, Lopez de Heredia, and CUNE. Over 100 years old. New ownership and winemaking team since 2006.
More fruit dominated nose than the first two wines. 'Not a super traditional producer.' More modern palate, staying away from herb undertones.

2011 Laderas de Cabama Rioja

Tempranillo more

2/12/2016 - nzinkgraf wrote: NR

100% Tempranillo. A more modern nose. Big ripe and concentrated fruit aromas. 100% French oak. 100% from a single site north of the river in the calcareous soils. 14 months in oak, could be called Crianza, but...
Herb as an underbelly. No doubt, medium plus acid. Toasted herb on the palate.

1986 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

2/10/2016 - nzinkgraf wrote: NR

Showing a glacial path of aging. Black licorice aromas. Candied grape and med/- tannin. An ethereal drink with water-weight to the palate. As this opens up, the palate fattens out and shows a nice level of density to the palate. Still holding on to substantial fresh blackberry fruit. 'Maple syrup' is called out. Full, rich and concentrated.
