2010 La Rioja Alta "Viña Alberdi" Reserva Rioja

95 points James Suckling: "Ripe and intense aromas of strawberries and blackberries with hints of black ink. Savory notes, too. Full-bodied, chewy and focused with linear fruit and character. Very finely crafted. Drink or hold." (12/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Viña Alberdi is a Tempranillo blend from different vineyards from what they consider an extraordinary vintage. This wine is matured in American oak barrels built by their own coopers, the first year in new barrels and the second one in third-year barrels with four manual rackings.

2014 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2014 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 berrie... Read More »

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.

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 »

2014 Castillo de Viñas Crianza Rioja

Our newest direct-import Rioja comes from Rioja Baja, where the climate is a bit warmer and more Mediterranean, but where the Garnacha is arguably the best in all Rioja, the Graciano ripens more easily and shows great promise, and Tempranillo, planted on choice parcels like they are here, is also quite good. Castillo de Viñas was a label put together for us by one of our contacts in Rioja, and is made by the Burgo Viejo winery, a group of growers who have some great quality vineyards in the area. 90% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano.

They are also relatively high elevation, at 2,000 to 2,400 feet above sea level. This wine shows wonderful, pure aromatics of blueberry, black raspberries, chalk and spring flowers.

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.

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.

One of the two oldest Rioja bodegas, with a history dating back to the mid-19th century, Marques de Murrieta is not resting on its laurels. Rather, they continue to produce excellent wines, big hits with their customers and critics alike. They are fully self sufficient in grapes, taking advantage their large, contiguous vineyard just outside of Logrono, which boasts plenty of old vines, a variety of terroir from chalky clay to very stony parcels, and a climate that particularly favors not only Tempranillo but some of the region's finest Mazuelo.

2014 Miguel Merino Mazuelo de Quinta Cruz Rioja

This is a truly unique Miguel Merino wine, a single east-west oriented vineyard Carignane (Mazuelo in Spanish) from a cool, Atlantic-influenced climate Bright, slightly peppery, nervy and red fruited, this is quite an original single vineyard wine, and if you want to take a flyer on it to see what Mazuelo can do on its own, we think you will be quite pleased with the wine!
