Wine of the Week #1542: Mr Riggs Tempranillo
94/100 Points: “Silky smooth with just enough attitude to set it apart. Flavours are in the cherry-plum and cola realm, though notes of peppercorn and chocolate, as modest as they are, are important aspects of the wine’s personality. Ultra fine-grained tannin, edges of mineral and finesse through the finish are all quality markers. Medium-weight but it h has presence.”
Wine of the Week #1537: Bodegas Tierra Hermosa Tempranillo “Neblerío”
93/100 Points: “Red fruits dominate the palate, underpinned by richer black fruits, a touch of blackberry and black cherry. There is a lot happening on the finish – juniper, some walnut and lots of black and red cherry.” (Derek Smedley, MW – International Wine Challenge)
Wine of the Week #1533: 2012 Vina Herminia Rioja “Excelsus”
The 2009 Excelsus was awarded a rating of 93 points and was ranked #39 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013. This is a winery to watch. This blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha is sourced from vineyards planted at altitudes of 700 metres on the foothills of the low-lying Sierra de Yerga mountains. Viña Herminia is emerging as a real leader in the Rioja, and the value and quality of their wines have attracted increased international acclaim.
Wine of the Week #1514: Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904
“At this quality level the price is superb especially considering that the wine is being released 10 years after the vintage..” – 96/100 Points – Luis Gutierrez / eRobertParker.com
