  1. New El Castro de Valtuille Joven by Castro Ventosa 2018

    $215.40

    Castell d'Encus

    Castilla y Leon (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat, Vegetables


    Made by the great Raul Perez. Fresh, mineral-tinged redcurrant and cherry scents show very good clarity and a subtle floral overtone.  Tangy, focused and pure on the palate, offering intense flavors of bitter cherry and red berry preserves.  Shows a light touch that's quite pinot-like, along with a touch of smokiness that carries through a long, mineral-driven finish.  If you want to show somebody what mencia smells, feels and tastes like, serve this one.

    3 bottles x Thalarn 2012

    3 bottles x Quest 2011

     

    "The 2012 Thalarn is a great cool-climate Syrah, reminiscent of a Northern Rhone, or rather a Syrah from Valais, with its wild, slightly rustic character. Right now it is covered by the baby fat and the aromas from the best French oak money can buy, as it’s extremely young, and needs some years to grow up. While delicious right now, it will only get better if you wait. It has a fine palate, with a silky texture and saturated, round tannins. The 2008, the first vintage from a cool year which only reached 11.3% alcohol, is sublime now, if that gives you a hint about drinking windows. Drink 2015-2022."

    Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh blueberry and woodsmoke, with a suave floral quality emerging with air. Sweet dark berry and spicecake flavors put on weight with and pick up a floral pastille nuance. Fresh and energetic, with a lingering note of dark berry preserves on the supple finish.
