    June 10, 2019 - On PnP, nose was old and musty but the palate was great and very similar to my 2017 tasting note with a little bit more reserved red fruit.

    May 6, 2019 - Ce vin a été consommé en même temps qu'un El Vinculo reserva 2005. Les deux se ressemblent beaucoup. Or, vina Ardanza est peut-être un peut moins intense. Mais c'est pratiquement semblable. On retrouve toutes les particularités d'un vin espagnol tipique. Excellent.

    April 30, 2019 - same as before. A really nice bottle, in a good place now.

    April 3, 2019 - On the nose, dark fruits and forest floor and leaf mold. On the palate, it enters with a delicious, smooth, medium mouthfeel. On the palate, dark fruits predominate with just the barest hint of mocha. Medium to long finish. Delicious with tortellini and fried chicken over sauteed spinach, with drizzled pesto. And garlic toast. We love good tempranillo!

    March 10, 2019 - Wet cedar and moldy nose. Uh oh. Light to medium bodied, soft dry tannins, sage, white pepper, cherries that keep building throughout the palate, and a short to medium finish. No longer great, but still good despite the nose.
