Was looking for a bottle to open last night and checked out a couple labels in my wine rack and finally decided on one that I’d seen a few times and had no idea about it. WOW! I don’t have a clue where or when I bought this. It’s the Tarima Hill 2010 Red (from Spain). On the label it said it received 93 points and I am in complete agreement with that! Amazing. Dark fruit, spicy, a bit of smoke and leather, a bit chewy.
One quick review:
“The opaque purple-colored 2010 Tarima Hill exhibits notes of chocolate fudge, pen ink, graphite, blueberries and blackberries. This full-bodied, 100% Monastrell should drink well for a decade or more.” 93 Points – The Wine Advocate
I have no idea what I paid for this (though I’m guessing mid teens). Many of the reviews say this should NOT cost this little, but more like $30-$50. I can’t agree more! Need something to do this weekend? Go on a wine hunt…
I’ll be doing something like that this weekend. I’m listing the wines I own for my colleague’s spouse, who is a sommelier.
That sounds like a great weekend!
