  • 22 April 2017: 2001 Liberalia Toro Cinco - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by KenK. From Magnum, soft dry earthy red fruits with tobacco hunts. Nicely balanced. Good, not great. Holding, but suggest drinking up. (91 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2017.
  • 22 April 2017: 2005 Bodegas Luis Cañas Rioja Reserva Selección de la Familia - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by ephorn. Generous Ripe nose some vanilla oak. Palate slightly dried out compared to nose. Medium plus tannin. Let this breathe first. Day two tannins and alcohol stick out but fruit remains (though still a bit dried out). Solid wine a notch below expectations. (91 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2017.
  • 22 April 2017: 2006 Bodegas El Coto Rioja Coto de Imaz Reserva - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by KitchenNotes. Past it's prime, little tired (86 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2017.
  • 22 April 2017: 2016 Avinyó Penedès Petillant vi d'agulla - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by Joe the Critic. Very slightly sparkling. I like sparkling wines and Spanish whites, but this one is not made all that well. The dominant flavor of cling peaches quickly becomes cloying. It reminded me of a Viogner, with a heaviness that becomes more noticeable with each sip. (85 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2017.
  • 22 April 2017: 2010 Marqués de Murrieta Rioja Ygay Gran Reserva - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)

  • 22 April 2017: 2015 VinNico Export S.L. Tempranillo Valencia Radio Boka - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by zanz06. Reminds me of apothic red but not as bold or sweet. (90 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2017.
  • 22 April 2017: 2015 Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by Martin Redmond. Very pale straw color with ginger, passion fruit, and pear aromas. On the palate it's light-bodied, fresh and crisp with passion fruit, pear, and apple flavors and a medium+ finish. This would be great with shrimp ceviche tostadas! (88 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2017.
  • 22 April 2017: 2015 Pazo de Señoráns Albariño Rías Baixas - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by Man in Black. Pale lemon colour. Lifted nose displaying scents of lemon peel, green apple, honeysuckle, hints of fresh stone fruit and lees. It is dry with a refreshing acidity. It has a medium alcohol and a medium+ body with an oily texture. It has medium+ intensity flavours and a lingering finish. It is a very good quality wine. The tasty fruit concentration and the creaminess are balancing the acidity. The finish is very persistent, however better examples of this style would show even more complexity. - Tasted 4/22/2017.

  • 22 April 2017: 2012 Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos Toro Viña San Román - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by davidrh1. Opaque deep purple color. Great complex nose with hints of dark cherry and turned earth underpinned with minerality.

  • 22 April 2017: 2014 Bodegas Alto Moncayo Campo de Borja Veraton - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by FMRsommelier. Fait à 100% de vieilles vignes de Grenache. Robe rubis moyenne a la frange pourpre. Superbe bouquet de petits fruits murit au soleil, épices douces et chêne grillé. Bouche tout aussi séduisante avec son fruité plein, ses notes de poivre et épices. Le boisé est bien présent mais sans excès. Un superbe rapport qualité-prix. (94 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2017.
