this is a liquor made with blackberries matured in brandy. Anyway, it reminded to me Cherries rather than blackberries. Nice taste. Not too much strong.

Gran Colegiata barrica 2008

Gran Colegiata Barrica 2008

This is an outstanding Toro wine. Very good quality/price ratio. I paid 5,3 eur at El Corte Inglés. It reminds "Fariña primero" but due to the oak maturing this one is more complex and delicate. Worth to taste it! In addition, they have updated the label: a great success! Congratulations to Fariña again.

Dominio de Valdelacasa 2007

Unfortunately this one is not comparable to the 2006. If you have chance, go for 2006. the price is the same (8,9 eur at El Corte Inglés). This is only a correct wine.

Domaine Allimant-Gauner Pinot Gris 2007

Domaine Allimant-Gauner Pinot Gris 2007

I have been able to taste it thanks to my good friend José Ricardo F. I think that this is my second favourite white wine after Milmanda (Torres). Vey nice smell, taste, and outstanding texture. On the top of the tongue, high density (like olive oil). On the bottotm, the cristal texture of sweet wines. OUTSTANDING!
According to wikipedia, Pinot gris is a white wine grape variety of the species vitis vinifera. Thought to be a mutant clone of the Pinot noir grape, it normally has a grayish-blue fruit, accounting for its name ("gris" meaning "grey" in French) but the grape can have a brownish pink to black and even white appearance. The word "Pinot", which means "pinecone" in French, could have been given to it because the grapes grow in small pinecone-shaped clusters. The wines produced from this grape also vary in colour from a deep golden yellow to copper and even a light shade of pink,and it is one of the more popular grapes for orange wine. The clone of Pinot gris grown in Italy is known as Pinot grigio.

Along with Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Muscat, Pinot gris is one of the so-called noble grapes of Alsace.

Vermouth cooperativa d'Artes

This is a nice vermouth. Plenty of taste, and more bitter than usual vermouths. You will pay 3,5 eur at the cellar. It's a bargain!

Vi de misa cooperativa d'Artes

Vi de Misa Cooperativa d'Artes

Theoretically it should be a dry wine. In fact, it is a sweet wine. It reminds me oak matured muscat grape. Very good price for a ridiculous price (3,9 eur). Nevertheless, they should improve the label!
You can get it only in their shop. Worth to purchase it if you visit the cellar. You can taste in advance.
