Reserva Bodega Classica

Hacienda Lopez De Haro Reserva Bodega Classica 2005

Rioja D.O.C.A., Spain
1676 days ago

Fav scored this wine: 93/100

Here is a unique opportunity to sample a ten year old red for under twenty dollars. This dry medium bodied wine has a very unique taste. Hints of vanilla, tobacco and plum are very noticeable on the nose. Blackberry and plum are very noticeable when tasting this red. Spain produces some great tasting wines. This one is a clear example of that. This wine pairs well with cajun flavoured food. Cheers!

Fav scored this wine: 91/100

An Austrailian Shiraz that does not disappoint! The legs of this wine are very noticeable. Hints of smoke, cherry and coffee were quite evident in my tasting of this winner from Nugan Estate. If shiraz is your grape you will love this one! Cheers!

Gran Reserva

Concha Y Toro Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Marchigue, Ribera Del Tinguiririca, Chile
1760 days ago

Fav scored this wine: 92/100

This full bodied Red is a winner in my book. Aromas of smoke, plum and cherry can easily be detected. A well balanced wine with a nice cherry and spice flavour. A great Red to serve at your next family gathering. Cheers!

Pure

Trapiche Pure Malbec 2013

Mendoza, Argentina
1781 days ago

Fav scored this wine: 93/100

This medium bodied unoaked Malbec is a clear winner in my book. With hints of cherry, smoke and plum this well balanced red definately deserves an Oscar nomination for taste. A smooth well balanced wine that most people will enjoy. Pair this wine with red meat and you will not be disappointed.

Vintage Not Filtered Villa Nova De Gaia

Quinta De Ventozelo Vintage Not Filtered Villa Nova De Gaia Port 2003

D.O.C., Douro, Portugal
1788 days ago

Fav scored this wine: 92/100

This Vintage Port with its dark ruby red colour was so complex for me. Many different flavours detected including cherry, plum, black pepper, raisin and prune. Full bodied and sweet. Everyone needs to try a Port wine at least once in their lifetime. It is a very unique tasting experience! You will really enjoy this wine with a nice aged cheddar. Cheers!
