Viña Cubillo Crianza Rioja 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 Vina Cubillo Tinto Crianza is a blend of 65% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho (some wineries, like Lopez de Heredia, Muga or Telmo Rodriguez use the masculine name of Garnacha) and the rest Mazuelo and Graciano. It is aged for three years in used 225-liter American oak barrels (the only ones they use), racked twice per year, fined with egg whites and bottled unfiltered. It has a dark ruby color with an orange-brownish rim and a nose of red fruit, citric notes of candied orange skin and fresh blood orange, white pepper, balsamic herbs and some raw meat aromas. The palate is very polished, with balsamic flavors, sweet tannins and good acidity. A good traditional Rioja..." WA 12/13

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

Best tempranillo I've had for $7. Nose is simple but pleasant with berry, vanilla and mineral. Full and round in the mouth, well structured, moderate acid and decent finish. Really simple, successful "International style" red wine with a tempranillo twist. Absolutely not interesting, elegant or sophisticated - but one of my first picks under $10.

Oh, tannin bomb. Oak, berry, black, rich on the nose. Jammy taut, veggie on the tongue. May be good for oily foods as it would cut through butter with its bitterness. Was priced at $10.99. Try it if you can get it for less.

I love this tempranillo so so so much. Awesome price, great backbone - holds its own without being overwhelming. One of my favorite wines that I purchase often. Try this!

Nice fruit, medium body, soft, and nice long finish. It went very well with a stuffed pork loin roast. The roast was stuffed with cheese, fresh blackberry and peach.

Quite drinkable - bold like a Bordeaux but finishes light and bright

Great medium-bodied blend that goes great with a tomato based pasta sauce.

I found this in the grocery store and it's good, and for such a low price!

Located outside the tiny Rhône town of Mormoriron, Château Pesquié is known for substantial reds like Terrasses, which is dense with earthy raspberry notes and supple tannins.

100% Tempranillo, this wine is ridiculously good for this price.

The unfined/unfiltered 2006 Les Terrasses Rouge, a custom cuvee made for American importer Eric Solomon, is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a lovely bouquet of black currants, black cherries, licorice, smoke, roasted herbs, and melted licorice. Deep and full-bodied with velvety tannins, good acidity, and a long finish, this is a heck-of-a wine to drink over the next 4–5 years.

Fresh, dry and easy drinking. You can't go wrong with this Rosé. Made from a mother/daughter team from the south of France.
