Abel Mendoza 2016 Rioja Jarrarte 750ml

$43.39

“I tasted the red Tempranillo 2016 Jarrarte next to the 2015, a comparison that is always interesting to see how the wines behave in two very different years. 2015 was considered warm but was somewhat underrated, and the wines are evolving better...

Abel Mendoza 2016 Rioja Seleccion Personal 750ml

$69.47

I also tasted the 2016 Selección Personal next to the 2015. 2016 was a higher-yielding year, and the wine might be a bit lighter and fresher even if the analytical data doesn't show significant differences. The wine matured in French barrique for...

“As with many other wines, this time I could compare the 2016 Tempranillo Grano A Grano with the one from 2015 and see the differences in the two vintages. Analytically, the wines are quite similar, but the profile is not the same. There is less...
