Dinastía Vivanco Tempranillo Blend Rioja Tempranillo-Garnacha Vivanco Rosado 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Manually harvested in October using small crates, the grapes were stored in cooling chambers for a minimum of 30 hours. The wine was made in the traditional “Sangrado” style, where the clear grape juice was left in contact with the skins for 12-24 hours at the low temperature of 10ºC to extract color. Each variety was fermented separately in small French oak vats at 14-16ºC for 18 days.

Crushed raspberries, white pepper and violets greet the nose along with a big watermelon undertone and some pollen fennel notes. A touch sweet in the mouth and rather light-bodied, this shows off some decidedly plummy tones in the mouth with spicy red berry top notes and a lightly jammy, strawberry back end. The finish is a touch short and shows the acid struggling to cleanse the palate. Fun but a bit sweet for me. 86pts

This is a little ashy on the nose with hints of arugula, blood and carob adding gentle complexity to the nose. The aromas are more savory than fruity but there is a base of raspberry/blackberry fruit here along with well-balanced briary oak. This is easy to drink texturally but it has the same savory, arugula-like flavors on the palate adding compelling complexity to the round yet nervous wine. There are subtle layers of flavor here. It is a little nutty, a little meaty, but then mineral and taut with a hint of rust coming out on the back end with raspberry fruit, licorice and spiky little tannins. The finish is long and zingy with lovely layering of subtle savory and fruity flavors and just a hint of heat on the finale. This is really attractive. It is not rustic but not modernly smooth either, with a mouthfeel that is zesty, sapid and refreshing. Serve this with red meat like lamb. 90pts

This is quite fruity and intensely aromatic, with a fair amount of oak. Sweet vanilla, subdued stemminess, red cherry and currant fruit with a peppery top note fill the glass. This is slightly volatile on the nose, but only to the point of boosting the aromatics. Smooth on entry, this shows some rather extracted, dry tannins, but there’s fine buffering material in the form of rich, slightly chewy dark fruit that’s a bit gamy. Mostly cherry toned with some black raspberry notes and a bit of spice, the fruit rises on the mid-palate and becomes more perfumed and expressive on the back end. The moderately long finish shows a fine interplay of wood, spice, sweetness and mouthwatering fruit. The fruit wins out on the finale. 91pts

Plenty of toasty French oak on the nose is met with notes of dried herbs, fresh leather, tobacco, sweet dark berry fruit, cinnamon, licorice and seared beef. In the mouth, bright acids and nice firm tannins are buried in a core of sweet and sour Jolly Rancher grapy fruit with hints of pomegranate. A little black currant and some black plum notes pop on the finish, which shows a bit of sticky sweetness. A polished, modern and fruity style. 89pts

Earthy and funky at first with eggshell and soil notes, this blossoms slowly with raspberry and wild strawberry tones accented with dried citron peel. Light and fresh in the mouth, this shows some nutty oak up front before laying down a pure, crisp mid-palate replete with crystal clear raspberry fruit. This is high acid without being acidic and displays rare elegance and finesse with its soft and rich yet bright mouthfeel. 93pts

This opens with just a touch of an acetic tone then turns layered with an earthy, leathery core of jellied raspberry fruit with a touch of vanilla and high tones of pepper, cedar, and a brisk saline note. With airing this gains nuanced floral and star anise tones as well as a smoky top note. In the mouth this is really bright with zesty, mouth cleansing acids framing slightly spicy yet intense strawberry fruit. There is an edge of Burgundian funk adding complexity on the lovely medium bodied mid-palate and a glassy mineral note pops out on the backend leading to a medium length finish with brisk strawberry and pomegranate tones. This would be killer with a fine Paella Valenciana! 89pts

A minor terpene note on the nose quickly blows off revealing a complex and compelling nose of roast tangerine, mineral, honeycomb, brushfire, and caramel corn, though more corn than caramel. The bright acids wash across the palate and lift the pink grapefruit, pomegranate and ranier cherry tones through to the rich, long finish with it's more citrus, orangy notes. Wonderfully evolved but still amazingly youthful; Drink 2009-2020 93pts

This was the first Rosé varietal I ever tasted. Impressive strawberry and watermelon flavors, a little bit of carbonation, and lower alcohol content (11.5). One thing I noticed as I drink this is that I'm taking larger sips than with other wines. That's probably because of the lightness and sweetness. It reminds me of a lightly sweetened natural fruit soda.

Hellgelb mit leichten Goldreflexen. Die feine Perlage duftet nach Äpfeln und Birnen. Unterstützt werden diese fruchtigen Aromen im Gaumen von noblen Brothefe- und Rösttönen, dezente Nuancen von Mandeln im Finale. Silbermedaille an der Expovina 2008!

Producer information: Under the classification Vinos de la Tierra, Dominio de Eguren is distinguished from the rest of the wineries by its rigorous selection of vineyards situated in fabulous settings in the best production areas of Spain, advanced in age and with limited yield. The winery is located in the municipality of Páganos in the province of Alava and uses a total of 15 vineyards spread across domains of Vinos de la Tierra and Vinos de Mesa. This winery owns brands such as Códice, Épico, Protocolo, Torre Abalde and Estratego Real. The wines of Dominio de Eguren come from a rigorous selection of vineyards controlled by our property and situated in the main wine areas in Spain, close to 700 m in altitude, ranging in age from 30-70 years and a controlled production. The area is characterized by its continental climate, influenced by the Mediterranean through the east winds, with cold winters and hot, dry summers with high luminosity. The daily high temperatures caused by winds from the west, against the coolness and humidity of the night Mediterranean breeze, produce a large thermal amplitude, which favours the synthesis of polyphenols over a long period of maturation. Rainfall is low, usually under 400 mm annually. The little rainfall from May to September creates a perfect environment for a healthy harvest and thus grapevines could be considered cultivated in an almost organic way. The vineyards, planted in the so called “marco real” (an ortogonal way of planting) with a density close to 1,200 plants / ha, are established on a clay soil with a limestone base, poor in organic matter and capable of retaining water in the early stages of the vegetative cycle before the arrival of the dry summer months. The varieties are Tempranillo, known as Cencibel in the area, Bobal, Airen and Macabeo they match perfectly to the growing conditions. Harvest is done manually from late September onwards, always under the supervision and quality standards set by the Eguren family, thus obtaining berries with a high content in their skins of polyphenol in red varieties and terpenes in whites.

Valle Reale is a fantastic young winery really making the headlines and owned and operated by the Pizzolo family. It is one only a few wineries exploiting the pristine conditions in the Abruzzo region. The vineyards are situated in the rugged and beautiful Canestro Valley in the Majella National Park. A stunning area with bears and wolves often sighted in and around the vineyards. This is the only winery in any National Park in Italy and they cannot bring in any outside plant material, and they must produce with absolute respect for nature. The high altitude and cooler climate (not to mention the state-of-the-art winery) lead to wines with much more polish and class than most wines from this region. Two of their wines gained the ""Tre Bicchieri"" award in the 2011 edition of the Gambero Rosso. Grapes : Trebbiano 100% Region : Italy / Abruzzo / Trebbiano d'Abruzzo DOP Maker : Luciana Biondo Notes : A beautifull aromatic and expressive Trebbiano. The nose shows ripe citrus and white flowers and the palate is full and crisp. A well balanced wine for immediate drinking Serve : Chilled as an aperitif or to accompany fish, shellfish and white meats ABV : 12.50%

Summer pudding in a glass! Brimming with blackberry, raspberry and plums with licorice and a smooth finish. Bodegas Solar de Urbezo is a modern winery, equipped with the most up to date winemaking equipment. The Gracia family has had vineyards in the high plateau of Zaragosa for many years. The Vina Urbezo wines have been shortlisted for the best Joven in Spain for the last 8 years. Grapes : Tempranillo 40%, Grenache 30%, Syrah 30% Region : Spain / Aragon / Cariñena DO Maker : Santiago Gracia Notes : Summer pudding in a glass! An elegant blend brimming with blackberry, raspberry and plums with licorice and a smooth finish. Definitely not a one dimensional wine - this is regarded as one of the best unoaked reds in Spain. Serve : Grilled steak, lamb, tapas, pizza. ABV : 14.50%
