2011 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2011 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!This crianza is a potpouri of mixed berries... Read More »

2014 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

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.

2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja

92 points James Suckling: "This has a beautiful depth of fruit with spice and dark fruits. Hints of parsley and cilantro. Full and super silky with a long and beautiful finish." (5/2013) K&L Notes: Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release.

2013 Mas Que Vinos "Ercavio" Tempranillo Roble Tierra de Castilla

90 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. Smoke-accented dark berries and cherry on the fragrant nose. Smooth, sweet and open-knit, offering pliant blackberry and violet pastille flavors that tighten up and gain focus on the back half. Nicely plays richness off vivacity and finishes with very good persistence and supple tannins, leaving a juicy berry note behind. This wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, with the malo taking place in clay amphoras, followed by eight months of aging in used French and American oak. (JR)" (12/2015)

2007 Miguel Merino Reserva Rioja

94 points Tim Atkin: "Combining fruit from two vineyards planted in the 1960s, this is a Tempranillo-based blend with a splash of Graciano and Mazuelo for extra acidity. Deeply coloured, with savoury black fruits, some dried herbs, attractive oak and a chalky, mineral flourish." (June 2015) A longtime participant in the wine business, Miguel sold wine for wine distributors in the States as well as worked as an export manager.

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.

2012 Bodegas Puelles Crianza Rioja

A K&L Direct Import! Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja. Hailing from a long line of vineyard worker/owners, Puelles knows the terruño in his little slice of land in the Rioja Alta town of Abalos. All of the grapes for his red wines come from his own 26 hectares, which are generally north facing and located between 300 and 600 meters in altitude, all within the village of Abalos, very rare in a region where sourcing from various villages and even sub-zones is more the norm.

Pure, high-pitched aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, blood orange and fresh rose, plus a bright mineral overtone. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering sappy red fruit and floral pastille flavors lifted by spice and mineral nuances. Closes spicy, nervy and long, with silky tannins making a late appearance.

Based in the Rioja Alta village of Badarán, Martínez Alesanco is a truly original bodega producing tasty, characterful wine for laughably low prices. They are entirely self reliant in grapes, all of which are grown in their home village of Badarán, one of the coldest zones of Rioja Alta. The vineyards are closer to the Sierra de la Demanda mountains, a range whose elevation and visible snow covered peaks are even more dramatic than the Sierra Cantabria range to the north.

Here is a Priorat that is not at all shy or trying to hide its Mediterranean origins, a richer, fuller bodied style especially considering its modest price.

2012 Bodegas Muga Reserva Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red 2012 Reserva is sold as Crianza or Reserva depending on the market, but it's always a blend of Tempranillo with some 20% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from the lower part of the valley of the Oja-Tirón river. The varieties are fermented and aged separately until most of it (around 80%) is blended the summer after. Even when they do not produce some of the top cuvées (like in 2012), those grapes are never used for this wine. 2012 saw good ripeness, and the wine shows it, but doesn't show any excess.

This wine saw a big change with the 2008 vintage, when Cabernet Sauvignon disappeared from the blend and got more focused and true to its birthplace. 2012 could be the finest vintage to date, as there was no 2012 Pie Franco, as quantities were really short and those grapes are in this b ...Read More »

More recently, Juan Antonio started making Monastrell from Jumilla, in a style that also emphasizes harmony between intense fruit and acidity, with minimal intervention in order to highlight the delicio...

2014 Vega Tolosa "11 Pinos" Bobal Manchuela

Bobal is a productive, peculiar variety, widely grown in the eastern portion of Castilla y La Mancha. While it can produce rough, uninspired wines when it's from younger vines on the flats, when it is planted at higher elevations, in good terroirs, and is well cared for, the resulting wine can be quite interesting. 11 Pinos represents the latter type of Bobal.

Pithy, tangy, mixed berry fruit flavors are generous, yet framed by some se... Read More »

2011 Viña Ijalba Graciano Rioja

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I thought the 2011 Graciano was showing quite well. It’s not an easy grape variety to handle but here they have managed to extract the best aromas of violets, blueberries and plums, and keep a clean palate with fine-grained tannins, good acidity, and purity of flavors, good balance and length. A great example of Graciano at a very good price. Drink 2014-2019. Vina Ijalba was one of the first wineries to jump onto the bandwagon of the new Rioja grape varieties, and is one of the few bodegas to offer a Maturana Blanca wine.

2015 Alvaro Palacios "Camins del Priorat" Priorat

Wine Spectator: "This supple red has good energy, with vibrant acidity fueling the bright berry and cherry fruit. Fresh herb and vanilla accents add interest. Graceful and alluring." (10/2016) K&L Notes: Alvaro Palacios is undoubtedly one of the architects and primary reasons for Priorat's elevation to premier fine wine region over the past 20 years. While it has certainly not always been a smooth ride for the region, Palacios' wines have garnered a following in Spain and abroad, amongst critics and collectors, for their generous fruit, polished tannin structure, and minerality.

2014 D. Ventura "Viña do Burato" Ribeira Sacra

91 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby-red. Musky, spice-accented red berries and floral oils on the perfumed nose. Vibrant, sharply focused flavors of bitter cherry and redcurrant deepen and stretch out with aeration. Reveals a sweeter, darker berry character on the persistent finish, which displays excellent delineation, supple tannins and a late jolt of candied violet. All stainless steel here.

2012 Paramo "El Aprendiz" Prieto Picudo Vino de la Tierra de Leon

90 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Intense, floral red berry and cherry aromas show very good clarity and pick up a spicy nuance with air. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering black raspberry and rose pastille flavors supported by an undercurrent of tangy minerality. At once lively and deep, this wine finishes with slowly building tannins and a touch of peppery spices. (JR)" (9/2013)
