2013 Marqués de Murrieta Reserva Rioja (Elsewhere $25) Top Pick!
2013 Marqués de Murrieta Reserva Rioja (Elsewhere $25)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red blend 2013 Rioja Reserva is mostly Tempranillo with 9% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo and 3% Garnacha, a proportion that is very similar from year to year as they want this blend to show the typicity of the Ygay estate. They blend grapes from different vineyards, soils, expositions and altitudes in search of a traditional, fine and elegant red aged in American oak barrels with more modern characteristics like fruit, mid-palate and integration of the oak. The destemmed and lightly crushed grapes fermented separately in stainless steel vats and the wine matu ...Read More »

Caves Messias Santola "Crab Wine" Vinho Verde

Produced from Loureiro and Pederña grapes grown in the granitic soils of the Vinho Verde region, the Santola (or as we here are calling it, "the crab wine") is a delicious, spritely and refreshing white. It doesn't get much more traditional, thirst-quenching or seasonally perfect then this wine. Delicious, low in alcohol, slightly fizzy and way too easy to drink!

2016 Adegas Valtea Albariño Rias Baixas

Our third vintage of this direct import Albariño, this wine shows everything we like in the grape: hints of lemongrass, lively stone fruit, and a brisk, saline-tinged palate. Located in the sub-zone of Condado do Tea, where the days are a bit warmer and evenings are slightly cooler, there is a wonderful mid-palate presence to complement the typically lean and mineral qualities of Albariño. A classic with any shellfish, especially Dungeness crab!

2015 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

Wine Enthusiast: "Bouncy berry and cherry aromas are more or less standard for basic Garnacha. This wine feels a bit gummy and grabby, but not sticky.

Mas Codina Brut Rosé Cava Penedes

Mas Codina is a 40 hectare estate in Penedès which dates back to 1681. This Brut Rosé consists of Pinot Noir grown in their own vineyards in the middle Penedès region. Here the Garriga brothers are quite pleased with the results they see from the Pinot Noir grown in chalky-clay soils. They have been working organically for the past several years and their first harvest doing so with certification was 2017.

2015 Laventura "Lanave" Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Lanave is a new 50/50 blend of Garnacha and Tempranillo, where the Garnacha from Rioja Baja should provide red fruit and the Tempranillo from Rioja Alavesa gives structure. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and two daily punch-downs of the cap. The Garnacha stayed in concrete, while the Tempranillo was transferred to 500-liter oak barrels, where it polished its tannins for 12 months.

2015 Do Ferreiro Albariño Rias Baixas

Do Ferreiro is a benchmark Albariño. Every year, it delivers the goods, showing a degree of aromatic complexity, nervy minerality, and pure intensity of flavor that always makes it stand out from the rest. Delicious upon release, it is also one of the few Albariños to improve in bottle for up to a decade (maybe longer?) beyond the vintage year. There is bright fruit intermingling with the classic Do Ferreiro salty/smoky mineral bite. Enjoy this wine on its own or with all types of seafood.

2014 Dominio del Águila "Pícaro" Tinto (Previously $30) Top Pick!
2014 Dominio del Águila "Pícaro" Tinto (Previously $30)

93 points James Suckling: "Delicate and floral with a ripe dark-fruit character and hints of charcoal and vanilla. Full body, elegant yet firm tannins and a fruity finish. Lots of wood but this is stylish. Needs time to soften. Better in 2019." (12/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pícaro Tinto is Tempranillo with some 5% Albillo and selected from vineyards where the soils have a higher content of clay.

2014 Cune Crianza Rioja

90 points James Suckling: "A fresh and easy Rioja that shows plum and cherry character. Hints of cream. Mushroom, too. Medium body, low tannins and a crisp finish. Delicious now."

2014 Quinta do Crasto "Old Vines" Reserva Douro

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Reserva Old Vines, a field blend from vines averaging around 70 years, was aged in an 85/15 mixture of French and American oak for 16 to 18 months (depending on plot). About two-thirds of the wood was new, the rest second use. This is a very respectable offering in this tough vintage. There are two factors that go into that. First, said Manuel Lobo, normal production was cut notably (normally, he said, there would be 25% to 30% more) as there was a stricter selection. Second, the south-facing vineyards that Crasto owns did better, Manuel said, a ...Read More »
