2010 Viña Real Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2010 Viña Real Crianza Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "No 2011 had been bottled yet, so I tasted the 2010 Crianza from hand-harvested grapes from Rioja Alavesa and produced in the Vina Real winery. As with the Reserva, the Crianza is usually a blend of 90% Tempranillo complemented with small amounts of Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano. 2010 had textbook climatic conditions to be a great vintage. The destemmed grapes carry out both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats and the wine ages for some 14 months in French and American oak barrels. This 2010 has a nice bright cherry color with a ...Read More »

Mas Codina Cava Brut Reserva Penedès Top Pick!
Mas Codina Cava Brut Reserva Penedès

Mas Codina is a 40 hectare estate in Penedès which dates back to 1681. This Brut Reserva Cava was hand-harvested from 20 to 30-year-old vines and estate bottled. Though it does not say it on the label, the current disgorgement is based entirely on the 2010 harvest. Vines are planted in calcareous and sandy clay soils which keep the wine minerally and lively. The wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle, and is aged on its lees for a minimum of two years before disgorgement. Varietals include Macabeo, Xarel-lo, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 100% ... Read More »

2008 Miguel Merino "Vitola" Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2008 Miguel Merino "Vitola" Reserva Rioja

*A K&L direct import! This is our latest arrival from Miguel Merino, whom we like to call "the hardest working man in Rioja." Having begun his humble "retirement project" in the early 1990s by restoring an older bodega just down the hill from the historic town of Briones, Miguel either owns or rents to own a total of around 8 hectares of vines, all of which are located in Briones; not only is this village specific Rioja, but it happens to come from one of the most sought after villages in all of Rioja Alta, where many top bodegas have some of their most ...

2009 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2009 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! Especially in the great 2009 vintage, the ... Read More »

2013 Descendientes de Jose Palacios "Petalos" Bierzo

Produced from primarily Mencía, with a smattering of other local varieties thrown in, this is typically a very nicely made bottle of wine, produced from slate and clay vineyards at different elevations and orientations, in the Bierzo D.O. just west of León. Just as the change in scenery and topography indicates that one is at the border of the central meseta and the cooler northwestern portion of the country, Petalos typically reflects this as well, striking a fine balance between sturdy, medium weight fruit and more mineral, floral components. Enjoy wit... Read More »

2013 Valdesil "Montenovo" Godello Valdeorras

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Green-tinged yellow. Nectarine, pear skin, lemon pith, anise and white flowers on the perfumed nose. Concentrated and energetic, offering fresh orchard and pit fruit flavors and hints of ginger, honeysuckle and musky herbs. A nervy citrus zest note adds definition and lift to the long, sappy finish, with the floral note repeating." (9/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The range opens with the 2013 Montenovo, fresh and approachable, cold-fermented in stainless steel where it matured for four months before bottling. It's very young, very representative of Godello in need of blowing off ...Read More »

2014 Armas de Guerra Mencía Rosado Bierzo

This is another terrific bottling of Armas de Guerra, a rosé based from Mencía grapes in the D.O. of Bierzo. It should be delicious when paired with all the usual rosé inspired fare, as well as perhaps some more substantial foods given this wine's excellent fruit intensity and palate presence. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

2014 Gorrondona Bizkaiko Txakolina

Gorrondona, based in the Bakio Valley within the Basque province of Bizkaia, produces one of this sub-regions most delicious txakoli. This wine is full of juicy citric and nectarine flavor, with more ripeness and a hint less fizziness than txakoli from the most established sub-zone of Getaria. There is a lot of richness coupled with intensity on this delicious txak o' txak (my nickname, feel free to borrow), as well as a lovely salty minerality and lots of length. Delicious! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Tio Pepe (Gonzalez Byass) Fino Sherry

Jancis Robinson: "Fresh, riper fruit than the Barbadillo Manzanilla -- such a good, reliable brand! Great concentration and purity. (RH)" (4/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Talking about which, the NV Tio Pepe Fino is an icon of Sherry wine. Produced from Palomino grapes aged in the Tio Pepe solera for an average of four years under flor. It has a light nose of dried flowers, almonds and olives, in a subtle way and a dry palate dominated by the chalky notes. Light and easy to drink, it is a good introduction to Fino Sherry. (LG)" (8/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "Round and nutty, with mild floral and honey hints up front. The ...Read More »

La Cigarrera Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda (375ml)

A wonderful expression of Manzanilla, the La Cigarrera always comes to us very fresh, expressing the briny, sea air quality for which these wines are known. It is bone dry, appley and has suggestions of loquat fruit and pits, with terrific complexity, no doubt due to the bodega's prime location in the "barrio bajo" section of Sanlucar, as well as its use of an amazing eight criaderas (the norm for these wines is three-to-four). So there is a depth of flavor for Manzanilla which is rare. Enjoy this as a perfect aperitif, or with olives, almonds, shrimp an... Read More »

Lustau "San Emilio Solera Reserva" Pedro Ximénez Jerez

92 points Wine & Spirits: "The exuberant and saturated sweet flavors of sun-ripened grapes spread throughout the entire palate, sustained by firm acidity. That acidity imposes its mineral tones, without overshadowing the seductive caramel sensation that lasts. Serve it chilled as a digestif." (6/2011)91 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers the weight you expect from a PX, but with fresher cut. The singed walnut, brown bread, ginger, ganache and Turkish coffee notes are allied to a mouthwatering spearmint and treacle spine. Features good energy through the finish to match the mouthcoating feel. Drink now. ...Read More »
