2005 Codice Vino de la Terra de Castilla

March 6, 2008

Popped and poured this inexpensive Tempranillo, a bit closed at first but opened up quickly to cherries and strawberries on the palate.  Less than $10, excellent QPR.

2006 Yalumba Shiraz Viognier South Australia Y Series

January 31, 2008

Yalumba Shiraz-Viognier South Australia The Y Series 2006, 88pts, WS

WineMad paid $8.99 @ Joe Canal’s.

Yalumba’s notes: Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier is bright and youthful. The nose is full of spices, licorice and plum fruits with subtle hints of Viognier emphasised by soft jam of fresh purple grape aromas.

The palate is supple, chewy and delicious with sweet vinour fruits and loose-knit tannins. A spicy, savoury and silky wine with a lingering finish.

WineMad’s review: spicy nose, dark berry, peppery, dark fruits on the palate, medium finish. Excellent QPR. Recommended.

Garnacha de Fuego Old Vines 2006

January 29, 2008

Picked up a bottle of Garnacha de Fuego Old Vines 2006 for $7.50, popped and poured… Wow! Delicious, with a great QPR… Cherry, berries, bright, touch of vanilla on the palate, some mint and smoke on the nose, will stock up on a few more of these as a weekday drink. Recommended.
