Community Tasting Notes 5

    October 8, 2021 - Medium ruby, with a satiny texture. On the nose, spicy cranberry, creosote/lavender, garrigue. Towards the end, coffee praline. On the palate the wine is excellent but clearly young, a bit spritzy up front with sweet yet tart red fruit (grenadine), firm tannins, very saline finish. A bit awkward right now, but Grenache matures quickly, so revisit in three or four years, certainly no later than 2028.

    July 11, 2020 - Lighter transparent ruby color, high viscosity. First reticent, but gains some momentum with some more air in the glass. Everything is subtle here, but layered and complex, with notes of crushed rock minerality, some subtle smoke, savory herbs, also some pure red fruit (strawberry and cranberry), beef blood, as well as some flowery notes too like violet pastille, there is also a hint of pepper, as well as some tobacco leaf on the palate. Medium-bodied, but with incredible persistence, there is medium+ tannin that is silky but sneaking up on you, there is also medium+ acidity which I don‘t find very often in Grenache, probably due to the high altitude and cooler microclimate. Very long finish. I would be curious to see how this will age, but not sure if I am willing to take the risk as this is already showing beautifully with some air. This is all about finesse, coolness, elegance and if you are looking for explosive fruit and weight stay away from this. Super fascinating wine. (96+)

    May 10, 2020 - An enveloping steep waterfall of vibrant slate, herbal tones, and explosive, multi-dimensional fruit. Continuous bursting beauty.

    February 13, 2020 - Bottles drunk with lunch or dinner while in Burgundy; 2/10/2020-2/14/2020 (Burgundy): Served blind. A wow wine in how much red fruit concentration it achieves without showing any richness or heaviness. This had a distinct mineral and clay-like undercurrent so I was guessing Chambolle 1er from a good producer/vintage. Never heard of the producer before. Way, way better than an 06 Rayas tasted the next night. 92-94+

    June 6, 2019 - To walk through and witness the magnitude of the Rey Moro vineyard, and then taste the wine, was such an amazing experience all on its own. Here I found an absolutely stunning, savory and alluring bouquet, showing mountain and brush herbs, cracked pepper, smoke, crushed rocks, and embers, as the wine opened more in the glass, evolving into ripe strawberries fresh on the vine, rose petals, and exotic spices. On the palate, silky textures flooded the senses, laced with peppery spices, liquid florals, fresh strawberries, and saline-infused minerality, with energy in abundance as brisk acids made the mouth water, and youthful tannin slowly mounted. The finish was long, savory and almost salty with it’s intense minerality, darker fruit than the nose and palate, and lingering savory herbs. What an incredible wine, so unique, so fresh, yet so intense.
