  • 20 July 2017: 2004 Bodegas y Viñedos Montecastro Ribera del Duero Montecastro y Llanahermosa - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by vlzat. Full body, mature ruby red color. Intense black fruits, spicy wood, and peppery aroma. Black cherry, dewberry and dark chocolate palate, long dried plum finish. Rich and complex, still fresh and juicy, bold texture, well balanced, lovely berries acidity, completely integrated but still tangible tannins. Food friendly, tasted with Mediterranean salads and Buffalo Mozzarella. Open about one hour in advance. Serve 17º - 22º. Drink now and next four years. (90 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.
  • 20 July 2017: 1970 Bodegas Dios Baco Pedro Ximénez Oxford 1970 - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by David_T. Molasses, sweet black cherry and a bit of an oxidative note on the nose. The palate matches, full-bodied but not cloying. I think this bottle has been open a month as I write this and hasn't changed a bit. I don't see it advancing with age but certainly won't fade either. (89 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.
  • 20 July 2017: 2004 R. López de Heredia Rioja Reserva Viña Tondonia - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by MWiking. väldigt gott och fräsch Rioja i min stil (92 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.
  • 20 July 2017: 2015 Bodegas Muga Rioja Blanco - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by MicklethePickle. This is excellent for the price. Has good fruit, minerality, verve, the right touch of acidity, and freshness. Tart, juicy, some slightly green fruits. This would make an excellent house wine for a wine bar or restaurant. The price is unbelievable. Bravo! 4-12-15-8: 89/100. (89 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.
  • 20 July 2017: 2014 Bodegas Juan Gil Monastrell Jumilla - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by Margaux Bro. Every bit of 15% abv although there honestly wasn't much heat present. French oak definitely on the palette, and it wasn't very tannic. Enjoyable for the price, would probably buy more. (89 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.

  • 20 July 2017: 2006 La Rioja Alta Rioja Viña Alberdi Reserva - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by short and confused. I love this wine for the price ($14). Now the American oak is strong on the nose and I love teevines "mix of coffee and chocolate powder (nestle quick)." The nestle quick is strong as well. The red fruit seems a bit sweeter than my last note- more cranberry than cherry. This is just an amazingly interesting age-worthy wine for $14. I bought 2 cases and still feel like I missed an opportunity! (92 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.
  • 20 July 2017: 2014 Raventós i Blanc de Nit - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by jeffal66. Clean and subtly tart, with mid intensity of flavor and decent length on the finish. Light toast, strawberry, maybe some apple. Balanced, with touch of complexity, it does Cava a solid. (89 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.
  • 20 July 2017: 2014 Bodegas Abanico Rioja Hazana Vinas Viejas - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by Mr Edj. Little fruit nor complexity. Tasted greeny/vegetal. Not a friendly wine. (84 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.

  • 20 July 2017: 2014 Señorio de Barahonda Yecla Campo Arriba Old Vines - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by mats13. I'm not quite convinced by the high ratings, but perhaps the wine needs a little more time in the bottle? Bright fruit, bright acidity - a bit too much for my taste. I'll try again in a year or so. For $9 I think it to be fair value. (88 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.

  • 20 July 2017: 2012 Pago de los Capellanes Ribera del Duero Crianza - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by JerM. (13.5%) Woah, elegant blackberries, blackcurrant, licorice, floral spices on nose. Yet more dark berries and licorice, transparent palate. Textural - almost satin/silk tannins, chewy with oak spices. Focused, yet elegant and effortlessly balanced, leading to a long minty/eucalypt finish. Immensely enjoyable, especially when paired with jamon serrano, bellota longaniza, goat and local blue cheese from Benasque - what a treat, and thanks SH. (93 pts.) - Tasted 7/20/2017.
