2015 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

Wine Spectator: "Black cherry, leafy and chocolate flavors mingle in this round red. Gentle tannins and lively acidity lend grip. Straightforward, but shows some depth. Drink now through 2019. (TM)" (11/2016) K&L Notes: In the region of Cariñena, the Garnacha grape variety finds a lovely expression, one which is less high octane and lighter on its feet than in some of the neighboring regions. This easy drinker is a terrific bargain for anyone looking for a house red or a wine for a celebration.

2015 Losada Mencía Bierzo

95 points James Suckling: "A sweet raspberry nose that is so fresh and pure. Electric tension between the fruit, tannins and acidity, and a great texture too. A stunning wine that redefines what Spanish red wine can be. Drink now." (7/2017) K&L Notes: Located in the prime Bierzo production zone around Cacabelos, west of the city of Leon, Losada produces great examples of wine from this underappreciated (on these shores, at least) grape. With its peppery fruit and slatey minerality, Mencía wines are medium-bodied and aromatic with firm tannins that lend to cellar worthiness.

Very finely crafted. Drink or hold."

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Part of the collection from different villages from Priorat, Cellar Cal Pla produced a 2014 Black Slate Porrera, which is a blend of 50% Garnacha with 40% Cariñena and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a village wine from 20- to 30-year-old vines on slate soils fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats and matured in 225- and 300-liter oak barrels (80% French oak, 20% Hungarian) for one year.

2013 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja

As is the case with so many other great spots in Spain, Bodega Casa Juan is located opposite the village church, in the beautiful walled pueblo of Laguardia. The winery is a converted flour mill, featuring concrete tanks for fermenting and blending the wine; and for ageing, barrels that are used for up to seven years. These are traditional Riojas in elaboration and spirit, though the site specificity of their Laguardia and Villabuena vineyards confers a fruit character all its own to these wines. And what fruit!

Superb quality considering the price. More delicate and refined than the 2010. Precise."

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Gran Reserva can also do with some decanting in advance as it has some reductive aromas when first poured after opening. After that it has some notes of hung game, spices, beef blood, iron, tea leaves and peat showing mostly as tertiary aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, with a fine thread of acidity going through its spine that is laced with fine tannins. It is quite easy to drink and quite a good price for a Gran Reserva."

2014 Bodegas Puelles Segundo Año Rioja

A K&L Direct Import! This is a new wine for us from the Bodegas Puelles stable. "Segundo año" means second year, and refers to the fact that it is released in the wine's second year following harvest. Prior to the more widespread usage of terms such as crianza, reserva and gran reserva, wineries would indicate the age of their wine by stating segundo, cuarto, quinto or whichever was the appropriate year. Not merely a quaint throwback, however, this segundo año is delicious, with bright, crisp fruit of excellent purity and a judicious amount of barrel ag... Read More »

Deeply concentrated dark berry and spicecake flavors are complicated by notes of smoky minerals and floral pastilles, while a subtle peppery quality adds spiciness. Supple tannins give shape to the very long, smoke-tinged finish, where the floral note echoes strongly.

2013 Mercedes Eguren Cabernet Sauvignon Vino de la Tierra de Castilla

The best Cabernet Sauvignon under $10 that I have tasted in nearly 9 years of working here. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer) This was produced from a 30-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in the Vino de la Tierra de Castilla appellation (a large swath of land in the region of La Mancha), this Cab has delicious, balanced dark currant fruit, and a subtle influence from a six-month stint in American oak barrels. This nicely priced Spanish Cabernet has been a staff favorite for two vintages running.

An excellent value from Spain. Monastrell grapes for this wine came from 45-year-old parcels on their estate vineyards.

After harvesting, the deep purple grapes are whole-cluster macerated for 25 days and aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The wine possesses a very dark cherry color with purple tones.

2012 Cal Blanca Toro (Previously $20)

Cal Blanca is easily one of the best Toro's I have tasted in some time, undoubtedly the best for under $40 (well under $40, in fact) Toro is a region known for its thick skinned local Tempranillo clone (tinto del pais) and it's stony terroirs; this is a combination with the potential to produce some seriously tannic wines.

2013 Acustic Montsant

The harvest was a little healthier without being easy (or dry). There is great volume in the palate, fleshy, juicy and rich without being heavy, medium-bod ...Read More »
