2013 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2013 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I’ve loved this wine in the past and the 2013, a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 12 months in French oak, is stunning, simply over-delivering in so many different ways. This wine, which offers up copious quantities, of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit, licorice, graphite and meaty notes, offers fabulous aromatics, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful, pure texture and a long, heady finish with subtle oak. What’s amazing is the French oak is all two-year-old, super-expensive Darnajou barrels. For $20 this i ...Read More »

2010 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival) New!
2010 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Since the 2010 harvest, they ferment plot by plot, and it shows. This Valbuena has almost 100 components in it, smaller lots, all of them corresponding to a plot of vines. It has all the signs of being one of the best vintages ever for this second wine from Vega Sicilia, mostly Tempranillo but with 5% Merlot that matured five months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 18 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), three months in used barrels and then five months in the vats again before being bottled in May 2013. 2010 seems to have the exuberan ...Read More »

2013 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Crianza Tinto Ribera del Duero

Wine Spectator: "Black cherry and red plum flavors are fresh and lively in this juicy red. Light, firm tannins and citrusy acidity keep this focused. Balanced and energetic. Drink now through 2023. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. (TM)" (9/2016) K&L Notes: Alejandro Fernandez is rightfully a Spanish icon, having been one of the early pioneers in the Ribera del Duero D.O. He is a champion of the local Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grape variety, and has proven time and time again that his vines around Pesquera del Duero consistently produce rich, powerful, fragrant, and elegant Ribera ...

2011 Finca Villacreces Ribera Del Duero (Previously $30)

94 points Decanter: "This wine could also be in my 12 greatest Riberas. Delicious, complex, finely sewn, open. Top quality, and at a bargain price. (PBT)" (1/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Opaque purple. Exotic aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, cherry-vanilla, licorice and peppery spices. Plush and open-knit, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit flavors and hints of candied flowers and spicecake. Supple tannins build with air and add shape to a very long, supple finish that leaves cassis and mocha notes behind. This suave wine has the depth to age but drinks very easily now; it was aged for ...Read More »

2012 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Reserva Ribera del Duero New!
2012 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Reserva Ribera del Duero

92 points James Suckling: "Nose of ripe blackcurrants, strawberries and raspberries plus mineral undertones. Full to medium on the palate with a fresh red-fruit character, soft tannins and a long and spicy finish. Phenolic tension and style. Drink now." (12/2016) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vibrant ruby. Musky, deeply pitched cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complemented by licorice, dried flowers and smoked meat. Sweet, expansive and focused on the palate, offering dried cherry and fruitcake flavors and an exotic suggestion of chewing tobacco. Vanilla and mocha qualities come forward on a long, smoky finish ...Read More »

2011 Lambuena Crianza Ribera del Duero

Wine Spectator: "*Smart Buy* A sleek texture carries lively flavors of cherry, mint, licorice and smoke in this fresh red. Light, firm tannins and juicy acidity give this backbone. (TM)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: Located in the town of Roa, which is part of the Burgos district, Lambuena is a producer of D.O. Ribera del Duero wines and is one of our newest Spanish direct imports. Ideally situated in the central growing region of the Ribera del Duero, in an area known for the very high quality of its chalky clay soils and its extreme continental climate, Lambuena makes big, generously fruite...

2011 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Valbuena was fermented plot by plot, something they started after a deep soil study in the 2010 vintage. 2011 was a very warm and ripe vintage in the zone, and the challenge was to keep the freshness. There are more black fruit aromas, subtle spices and hints of complexity, as well as tertiary aromas that are quite classic and turn more balsamic with time in the glass. Again, this is very different form the 2012 Alión, rounder, riper, richer, more polished, mellow, soft, quite exuberant and hedonistic. (LG)" (10/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Flavors of black cherry, kirs ...Read More »

2007 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2007 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero (95RP, 94WS, 93VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine might be a tad lighter than other vintages, but it's more structured than 2008; it combines elegance and power, is nicely balanced and should be able to develop in bottle for many years, although the quick evolution of the bottle once opened made me hesitate about its drinking window. Drink 2014-2024. (LG)" (08/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1989 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero (95ST, 94W&S, 93RP, 90WS). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated dark, fresh red. Exotic dried fruits complicated by minerals, cedar, cigar box and nuts on the nose. Huge, dense and solid, with great sappy redcurrant and wild strawberry sweetness buffered by powerful acids. With its huge concentration and extraordinarily chewy extract, this has fruit of steel. The wine's explosive, extremely long finish and great thrust go beyond 99.99% of the world's wines. 95+ (ST)" (08/2003)

1996 Abadia Retuerta "Pago Negralada" Sardon del Duero (OWC)
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1996 Abadia Retuerta "Pago Negralada" Sardon del Duero (OWC - (93-96RP), 93ST, 90WE) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Pago Negralada was to be bottled approximately a month after I tasted it. Made from a single Tempranillo vineyard, planted more than 2100 feet above sea level, the alluvial and clay soil mixture gives the wine a distinctive character. This is unquestionably a spectacular effort, displaying a saturated purple color, and a knock-out blackberry, chocolate, licorice, and earthy-scented nose. Exquisitely balanced, this full-bodied wine is crammed with fruit, yet it does not come across as heavy or overbearing. This wine has benefited from having its malolactic take place in barrel (which tends to integrate the wood into the wine earlier, and, some say, more effectively than when it is done in tank) ...

2009 Viña Sastre "Pago de Santa Cruz" Gran Reserva Ribera del Duero

From the importer: "Viña Sastre's premier vineyard is the Pago de Santa Cruz, one of the oldest in the zone. This vineyard, at 900 meters elevation, is the sole source of the wine of the same name.

This wine is aged for 30 months in a selection of older oak barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered."

2000 Dominio Pingus Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The millennial Pingus is a fabulous wine from Peter Sisseck. It is endowed with a riveting, intense, vivacious bouquet of liquorice, creme de cassis, peppermint and kirsch and blossoms in the glass. The palate is fully loaded with glycerine-rich black fruit that lends it an unctuous texture that is neatly counterbalanced by requisite acidity. This is the Pingus that the 1998 wanted to be. (NM)" (8/2012) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby to the rim. Initially cool aromas of blackberry, coffee, mocha and lead pencil; showed a chocolatey aspect with 24 hours in the recorked bottle ...Read More »

1998 Dominio Pingus Ribera del Duero

92-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby-red. Highly nuanced nose of black- and redcurrant, raspberry, Cuban tobacco, minerals, brown spices and currant leaf. Large-scaled but sharply delineated, though less sweet and a bit heavier than the '99. Shows the intriguing Provençal herb component that I've found in just about every vintage of Pingus. Finishes very long, with firm acids and tannins. With 48 hours in the recorked bottle, this showed exotic spices and white pepper, and a Burgundian finesse. Perhaps not quite as thick as I thought a year ago; or perhaps it is simply overw ...Read More »

Bid on this bottle of Vega Sicilia "Unico" Reserva Especial (Lot 024/93) Ribera del Duero (94WS, 92WE). Wine Spectator: "This alluring red entices with floral and spice aromas, deepening on the palate, with plum, fig paste and loamy earth flavors.
