Type: Red Wine
Varietal: Tempranillo
Country: Spain
Region: Rioja

"The nose is very lifted with floral notes: crushed violets and rose petals sprinkled over cassis and dark plum fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and a gentle, insistent grip. It has a satin-like texture, bewitching harmony and a precise, languorous finish that exhibits spine-tingling minerality. Returning to the bottle hours after opening, it evolves ever-higher degrees of harmony and sumptuousness. It almost leaves you giggling stupidly at how good it is. It is expensive, but it is also cheaper than a First Growth."

2011 Vallobera Crianza

"Strong red color. On the nose it has aromas of mature fruit, black spices and minerals, showing its elegant and fine character. On the palate it has a perfect structure, full bodied, noble tannins, good acidity, very flavorsome, full and large. The finish is long and harmonious."

2010 Artadi Vina El Pison

"The 2010 Vina El Pison, one of the first single-vineyard wines in Rioja, is sourced from the Tempranillo vines planted by Juan Carlos Lopez de Lacalle’s grandfather in 1945. The 2.4-hectare vineyard is located in Laguardia, very close to the winery, at 480 meters above sea level. The destemmed grapes ferment in open wooden vats and the wine ages for 15 months in French oak barrels. Ever-changing in the glass, it moves from one set of aromas when just opened to the next one in a matter of minutes, switching from cherries to violets, the cinnamon turns into nutmeg, then it is raspberries, and even blood oranges. The medium-bodied palate shows great precision, tension and purity of flavors, with clean acidity and a mineral core that make it vibrant. It’s not in-your-face, it whispers, and you have to pay attention. It has great balance and harmony. The tight tannins would benefit from a little bit more time in bottle, and I’m sure the wine will age for a very long time. This is a great, world-class wine."

2004 Remirez de Ganuza Gran Reserva

"Purple/black in color with a surreal bouquet of kinky spice, truffle, mineral, and black fruit aromas, on the palate it is remarkably powerful, yet elegant. Mouth-filling, complex, and staggeringly rich, it has the balance to evolve for 15-20 years and should easily have a 50 year lifespan."
