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 »

2016 Bodegas Lanzaga (Telmo Rodriguez) "LZ" Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The unoaked red 2016 LZ is produced with a blend of head-pruned Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano from the village of Lanciego. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats for 15 days and matured in tank for four to six months. This is super expressive, from an unusual year that delivered quality and quantity, a rare combination. It's a superb, characterful, approachable Rioja with a completely different profile, fruit-driven with notes of licorice and an absence of wood, more in the style of a wine from Marcel Lapierre than what most people ex ...Read More »

2015 Pedro Martinez Alesanco Tempranillo Rioja

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. This is made from Tempranillo grown in iron rich clay soils. In fact, this red tin... Read More »

2005 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja

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.

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. It has some lactic aromas, ripe berries and some spicy notes that get focused in a few minutes in the glass. The lactic note goes away and the wi ...Read More »

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.

It has a slightly reductive nose with an intense stony/mineral sensation. There are floral notes, wild berries and some exotic spices.

2006 Vega Sicilia "Único" Ribera del Duero 3-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "Incredibly floral and beautiful with dark berry, spice, cedar and mint. Chinese plums. Asian spices. Bark. Tea. Full body, dense and so soft and complex. The finish goes on for minutes. Endless and fine. January 2017 release. This reminds me of the gorgeous 1991 or 1964. Drink forever. A wine that you want to spend time with."

2010 Roda I Reserva Rioja

95 points Decanter: "2010 was a memorably perfect harvest, with a wet start followed by a very dry summer that ensured no risk of disease. Altogether it was a well-balanced year, produced an Atlantic style of Roda. The wine is hugely expressive, with aromas of dark brambles, dried herbs, and fine oak. It clearly has years ahead.

2013 Hacienda Solano Vinas Viejas Ribera del Duero

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Selección Viñas Viejas is a mixture of Tempranillo grapes from multiple small plots of old vines in the village of La Aguilera, where the family has the vineyards and the winery. There is low alcohol and very good freshness here, despite the fact that it was harvested in mid-October. It matured in oak barrels for one year. 2013 was a challenging vintage, a cool year, but with problems of botrytis during the harvest, so it was necessary to sort and select thoroughly, and they even sold some grapes. The old vines are harvested earlier, and these w ...Read More »
