This is terrific, with dark, plummy, fruit and mocha notes building through a firm, dry, finish. Ready to go with lamb or beef roast now and just getting better with air or time in cellar. High-impact Tempranillo.

Ripe, juicy, soft and delicious, this blend of Grenache and Syrah from a couple of hours drive southeast of Rioja drinks like Spanish Cotes du Rhone. At a price very few Cotes du Rhones can match any longer!
Organic/BioLower ABV Valencia’s Verdil grape was once widespread but plantings plummeted through the 1980s. The grape gives wonderful fresh citrus fruit and a touch of salty minerality, but tends to oxidize easily –... Read More
