  • 24 September 2017: 2011 Trossos del Priorat Priorat Lo Mon - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by GonzaloManzaneda. Capa alta, opaca. Por color denota ser del Priorat. Súper aromático, sobre extraído como la mayoría de los Priorats. Aromas minerales, algo como de insecticida? Será el alto nivel acholico (14,5%)? Tal vez sean fresas poco maduras. Para mi tiene una arista de acidez que mejorará con los años. Astringencia muy correcta y agradable. En general bueno, soy yo que no me acaban de convencer los Priorats por su dureza y alto nivel acohlico. (82 pts.) - Tasted 9/24/2017.

  • 24 September 2017: 2015 Bodegas Atalaya Almansa Laya - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by Cosmo M.. 2nd bottle of a case I bought and improved from the first bottle a few months ago, although still has a hint of something funky/corky on the nose upon opening, and the alcohol is still hot/not quite integrated. Palate shows violet, fig, cassis, vanilla and orange zest, with a lingering acidity. Paired relatively well with curried chicken. (86 pts.) - Tasted 9/24/2017.

  • 24 September 2017: 2002 Bodega Numanthia Toro Numanthia - CellarTracker Tasting Notes (all notes)
    Tasted by DesMarteau. ok...so this changes a lot over the open life of the bottle. to me...demonstrates the quality of the winemaking and grape pedigree. towards the end of 4 hours of an open bottle...nose of currants, raisin, spice...seawater, currants, spice...long finish. love Jorge Ordonez influenced Spain...was a bit concerned about the new world slant...but this is 15 years old and wonderful. would/could go longer. Disclaimer: perfect storage since release. (94 pts.) - Tasted 9/24/2017.
