  • 1991 R. López de Heredia Rioja Blanco Gran Reserva Viña Tondonia

    Bought at the estate in Haro many years ago. Drank a coule of weeks ago. No formal notes taken, working from memory. Top of the cork slightly moldy but the bottled part was in surprisingly good shape. Beautiful golden color, viscous in the glass. Fantastic nose, I clearly recall apricot and grapefruit as the main notes. I first took a small sip upon opening and was taken aback by the very high acidity. The wine was then double decanted for over two hours and drank over the next hour or so. By then, it was juicy and mellow, with the apricots coming back in the mouth as well as musky grapes, orange and supported by good acidity. Eaten with seafood raclette, this was a hit all around the table. Sad not to have any more white Tondonia gran reserva in my cellar. This is a treat, no need to wait but should hold well. 92+

  • 2005 Torres Cabernet Sauvignon (Black Label) Mas La Plana

    Near the bottom of the bottle. Opened three hours ago. Had it with beef tenderloin chimichurri and a chorizo cassoulet. This was an excellent pairing.

    In the bottle, fine deposit. In the glass, deep black cherry color, bright reflections, just a hint of bricking. Beautiful glycerin tears slowly kiss the glass. Nose of mentol dominates wet grass, macerated cherry and raspberry. Palate is a combination of muted stewed cherry and cranberry, mixed with leather and remnants of oaky vanilla. Medium length with some tanins and earth tones left in the mouth.

    Much much better than the first bottle i had a few years ago. At or near peak. May yet improve a little but this was a good night to drink this with a well matched meal with steong herb flavours.
