2013 Bodegas Puelles Blanco Rioja

Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja. Hailing from a long line of vineyard worker/owners, Puelles knows the terruño in his little slice of land in the Rioja Alta town of Abalos. Most of the grapes for his red wines come from his own 20 hectares, which are north-facing and located at 600 meters in altitude, affording the visitor with one of the most dramatically beautiful views of Rioja's main mountain ranges: the Sierra Cantabria mountains immediately to the north and the Sierra de la Demanda mountains to the south. This white win... Read More »

2014 Zudugarai "Amats" Getariako Txakolina Top Pick!
2014 Zudugarai "Amats" Getariako Txakolina

Amats is both the brand name of the Txakoli as well as one of Zudugarai's vineyards. It's a beautiful vineyard, a sandy substrate covered in naturally growing green cover between the rows, with the Cantabrian Sea in full view to the north. Produced from Hondarribi Zuri grapes, this is classic Txakoli: zippy, crisp, tart green apple flavors are enlivened by a lovely sparkle from the CO2 retained in tank during fermentation. Try this refreshing, vibrant, low in alcohol white wine with a wide range of foods, from obvious choices such as seafood (grilled sar... Read More »

2013 Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc Vino de la tierra de Castilla

Lora is a blend of certified organic Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc grapes from one of the cooler parts of La Mancha (high up on the plateau not too far from the UNESCO heritage city of Cuenca). Bright citrus fruits combine with stone fruits and hints of melon, with crisp mineral tones and loads of personality. The winemaker and person who carefully sources this great organic fruit is none other than our friend Miguel Merino Navajas, son of Miguel Merino of Rioja fame!

2014 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina

Ameztoi produces some of the tastiest, most representative and classic txakoli: the delicious, bright, slightly petillant (fizzy), low alcohol wines which are consumed like water in Spanish Euskadi (Basque Country). Vineyards are a stone's throw from the ocean, full of verdant, green cover throughout the year. Predominantly Hondarribi Zuri, with 10% Hondarribi Beltza from 20- to 25-year-old vines, fermented in stainless. Briny and bright, the Ameztoi refreshes with juicy lime fruit and txakolina's characteristic spritz. Delightful.

2013 Carballal "Sete Cepas" Albariño Rias Baixas

Produced from younger estate grapes from Carballal's 15 hectares of vineyards, as well as purchased fruit, this Albariño is always hand harvested from carefully grown grapes, organic whenever possible, with treatments used only when absolutely necessary. Very refreshing, with nice bracing acidity, there are hints of exotic fruits as well as stone fruits. A wine to sip with warm weather fare as well as the absolute perfect match with fish and shellfish, the mainstay of coastal Galician cuisine. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

Fleshy and dry on the palate, offering sappy lime and bitter pear skin flavors that firm up and become more stony with air.

2014 Pedro Martinez Alesanco Blanco 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 snow-covered peaks are even more dramatic than the Sierra Cantabria range to the north.

Produced by a 25-grower cooperative located in the Condado do Tea sub-zone of Rias Baixas, this is crisp, citrus and yellow fruited Albariño from a challenging, but ultimately rewarding, cooler and damper vintage. The results are a very fresh white that has just enough juicy fruit to balance the clean salinity and crisp acids. This is a perfect aperitive and of course, is a seafood-ready white!

2012 Bodegas Castano Macabeo/Chardonnay Yecla (Previously $12)

In the southeast of Spain sandwiched between Jumilla and Alicante, wines from Yecla have most prolifically come from what happens to be the largest co-op in Spain. However the Castaño family stands as the most important and ambitious privately owned winery in the D.O., and they have gone to great lengths to push the quality from the often coarse wines for which this region was previously known.

It is juicy, with abundant stone fruit flavors and a generous, mouth filling quality given the extra time in bottle, as well as the clear quality of the fruit and winemaking.

This bottling, from a very well run cooperative in the area of Melgaçao, is a very tasty example of a Vinho Verde with the strong, slightly smoky, granitic inflection of Alvarinho.

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).

This is one of the best, freshest, most representative lighter style finos around. Gutierrez Colosia enjoys a prime location in El Puerto de Santa Maria, which, due to the confluence of the Atlantic and Guadalete River, allows for the development of a healthy layer of flor year-round to protect their soleras and contribute the tell tale salty, slightly almondy notes to the wine.

This method was the norm of yesteryear, but is so labor intense that it was discontinued in most wineries, and gives a big diversity of wines, as each barrel has its own character, which contributes to the complexity of the blend.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Going one step beyond, the NV Amontillado en Rama Cruz Vieja is aged for five years under 'flor' and then a further seven years in topped up barrels once the alcohol was adjusted to 17.5% in the 'soleras' and 'criaderas' system for an average of seven years. It is an elegant, floral wine, with subtle notes of hazelnuts, pine nuts, flowers, honey and a very sharp, salty palate, that makes it extremely long. This is the May 2014 bottling (Lot-141603), and I consider this a great value Amontillado. 1,000 bottles were filled." (12/2014)

2011 Valdesil "Pezas de Portela" Godello Valdeorras

Valdesil has some of the most impressive Godello in the Godello-filled D.O. of Valdeorras. This particular bottling is always delicious, somehwere between a Puligny Montrachet and a St. Aubin, with lovely yellow and citrus fruit, and ageing in 500-liter Allier oak to add some interest and complexity to the wine. Bright, lively mineral, and not lacking in intensity or textural depth, this is absolutely one of the tastiest barrel-aged Galician whites around. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish & Portuguese wine buyer)

Rey Fernando de Castilla "Antique" Amontillado Jerez (500ml)

Lots of attention has recently been placed on the historic region and stunning wines of Jerez. Given all the newspaper articles, restaurant by-the-glass placements, even a serious new book on the topic, the spotlight has generally avoided Rey Fernando de Castilla. Now that we finally have the wines available to us in California, it is our intention to change that and spread the word about this wonderful house. Founded in 1999 by Jan Petterson, a Norwegian who is a long-time veteran of the Sherry trade, these are excellent Sherries across the board, parti... Read More »

2010 Benito Santos "Pago de Xoan" Albariño Rias Baixas

If you think you know Albariño and want to further explore the variety, Benito Santos' offerings would be a terrific place to start. Benito Santos was one of the original growers in Rias Baixas when the D.O. was created. The company that now bears his name farms Albariño in three distinct vineyards in Salnés. Each of the vineyards is owned by the church and each is dominated by an 8th century chapel. Benito Santos leases the vines in perpetuity. All of the vines are certified organic by CREAGA, the first vineyards certified in Galicia. Xoan is a mere .5... Read More »

Gutierrez Colosia Fino en Rama El Puerto de Santa María (500ml)

The Fino from El Puerto de Santa María is delicious: light on its feet, delicate, almost Manzanilla like in its ability to refresh. These are lighter, less muscular wines than the finos of Jerez. Gutierrez Colosia enjoys a prime location, benefitting from the humidity of a location near both a river (the Río Guadalete) and ocean (the Atlantic). A first for us, their en rama, or uniltered, bottling of the fino is spectacular. It's more intense than the regular bottling, cutting a broader swath on the palate, while still retaining its brightly citric frui... Read More »
