2013 Celler Cecilio "Negre" Priorat Top Pick!
2013 Celler Cecilio "Negre" Priorat

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another unbelievable wine from 65-year-old vines planted in the schist soils of this area of Priorat. The 2013 Gratallops shows sensational aromatics of spring flowers, licorice, crushed rock, black currants and blackberry notes that all soar from the glass of this lush, seamlessly constructed full-bodied, opulent wine that is just a mind-boggling effort. It is a blend of 50% Grenache, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Carignan and 10% Syrah aged six months in barrel, as well as concrete tanks. Purity and presence of this wine in its aromatics and flavors are ...Read More »

2013 Mas Alta "Black Slate" La Vilella Alta Priorat

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a joint venture between famed Rhône négociant Michel Tardieu, his oenologist Philippe Cambie and importer Eric Solomon. From the area of Priorat known as the Vilella Alta, these are high-density vineyards planted more than 1,000 feet above sea level. The vines average between 15 to 60 years old. The final blend of the 2013 Black Slate is 60% Grenache, 35% Carignan and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, all aged for one year in French oak (60% new and 40% one-year-old). The color is inky/bluish/purple.

1999 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Gran Reserva has an enticing red cherry, soy and cedar-scented bouquet that is reminiscent of an old Burgundy. The palate is very well-balanced with fine acidity and edgy tannin. There are notes of fresh red cherries and orange rind interlaced by leather on the tart, highly enjoyable, zesty finish. Drink now-2018. (NM)" (8/2012) K&L Notes: Wow--this is spectacular Gran Reserva! Made in a traditional style with earthy red fruit aromas, and in this relatively cooler, damper vintage, a slightly Burgundian profile. The wine features good acidity, minerality, and...

2012 Bodegas Palacios Remondo "La Montesa" Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2012 Bodegas Palacios Remondo "La Montesa" Crianza Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2012 was one of the driest and warmest years on record (the third driest August since 1961, the fourth warmest since 1961). The 2012 Rioja Crianza la Montesa is a blend of 80% Garnacha, 15% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo (Cariñena) from grapes grown in the La Montesa estate in Alfaro, Rioja Baja where the red Garnacha reigns over Tempranillo. The wine is getting lighter and more ethereal, but this ripe 2012 has a heady nose of cherries in liqueur but also black and sour cherries, unnoticeable oak plus just a pinch of dark spices. The palate is soft and silky ...Read More »

(5/2013) K&L Notes: Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release.

Can Mayol Loxarel "999" Brut Nature Rosat Penedes Top Pick!
Can Mayol Loxarel "999" Brut Nature Rosat Penedes

91 points Wine & Spirits: "There’s intriguing complexity to this firmly structured rosé, a meaty wine that’s dry without feeling tannic. The mousse is finely integrated into the flavor, set to lift the flavors of duck confit or roast quail." (8/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Loxarel 999 Rosat is made up of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Trepat. Salmon pink in color with persistent small bubbles, it is a tasty wine best used as an aperitif." (5/2011) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Orange-pink.

2009 Can Mayol Loxarel "Gran Reserva de Familia" Brut Nature Penedes

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Gran Reserva de Familia is a traditional blend of the three Cava grapes produced by the traditional method (but it's not a Cava, it's a Penedès sparkling wine), which aged in contact with the lees in bottle for 50 months with no dosage. The nose is full of fennel, flowers and aromatic herbs, with hints of orange peel that made me think of a chalky barrel-fermented white, more a white wine which happens to have bubbles. Those are the flavors you find in the palate, certainly unusual but they give it a completely different and welcomed personality ...Read More »

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cropped from a vintage deemed almost perfect, the 2005 Viña Ardanza Reserva follows the same varietal mix found in the last vintages; 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. The grapes are always sourced from the same vineyards, 30-year-old Tempranillo from Fuenmayor and Cenicero in Rioja Alta and Garnacha from Tudelilla in Rioja Baja. In the case of the 2005, it was racked six times during its elevage.

2012 Bodegas Teso La Monja "Almirez" Toro

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Almirez (a 1,000-case cuvée of 100% Tinta de Toro) was aged 14 months in French oak. This sensational wine comes from vines planted between 1949 and 1999. Yields were a conservative 1.8 tons of fruit per acre. An inky/purple color is followed by aromas of camphor, ground pepper, blackberries and cassis. This full-bodied, Northern Rhône Valley-like Spanish red exhibits meaty/lard notes, terrific density and purity, and a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds. It should drink nicely for a decade or more. This large estate in Toro is owned by the Eg ...Read More »

Sweet, penetrating and seamless on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and mocha flavors underscored by juicy acidity. At once rich and energetic, finishing with strong thrust, supple tannins and a whiplash of floral pastilles." 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The outstanding 2012 Tarima Hill is 100% old-vine Mourvèdre from a vineyard planted between 1935 and 1970, whose vines are largely ungrafted.

Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering sappy red fruit and floral pastille flavors lifted by spice and mineral nuances. Closes spicy, nervy and long, with silky tannins making a late appearance.

It was foot trodden and fermented in cement vats and aged for nine months in used 500-liter oak barrels.

2012 Casa Castillo "Las Gravas" Jumilla

This wine saw a big change with the 2008 vintage, when Cabernet Sauvignon disappeared from the blend and got more focused and true to its birthplace. 2012 could be the finest vintage to date, as there was no 2012 Pie Franco, as quantities were really short and those grapes are in this b ...Read More »

Valdespino "Inocente" Fino Jerez

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Fino Inocente must be one of the few wines in Jerez that is still fermented in 600-liter American oak botas, which is an incredible amount of work compared with fermenting tens of thousands of kilos of grapes (or even more) in a big stainless steel tank. 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. Furthermore, the bottled wine is on average 8 to 10 years old. One ...Read More »

2009 Cune Gran Reserva Rioja

92 points Wine Spectator: "Tea, underbrush and tobacco notes give this red a traditional, savory character, while fresh cherry and leafy flavors keep this lively. Balanced and graceful, with polished tannins and a floral finish. Drink now through 2022." (5/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top of the Cune range before getting to Imperial is a new wine, born by chance, mostly for the export markets with the aim of offering a classical Gran Reserva at affordable prices. I'm talking about the 2009 Cune Gran Reserva, a red from a warm and dry vintage, saved by some rain in mid-September. A blend of 85% Tempran ...Read More »

2012 Raventós i Blanc "L'hereu" Conca del Riu Anoia Brut

91 points Vinous: "Pale yellow-gold. Vibrant, mineral-laced lemon pith and quince aromas are complicated by chamomile, musky herbs, buttered toast and an exotic touch of roasted coffee. Spicy, focused and dry on the palate, offering energetic citrus and orchard fruit flavors that flesh out slowly. Weighty but lithe, too, with strong closing cut and lingering floral and mineral qualities. The interplay of power and elegance here is pretty impressive" (1/2016) K&L Notes: Produced from nearly 100% estate, biodynamically grown Parellada, Macabeo and Xarel-Lo, this just may be the classiest...

2013 Dominio de Pingus "Flor de Pingus" Ribera del Duero

94 points James Suckling: "A linear and refined red with dense fruit, yet bright and racy. Full-bodied, tannic and firm. Shows wonderful length and complexity. 100% tempranillo and aged in 40% new French barrels. Needs about four to five years to soften but already beautiful." (7/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Flor de Pingus is a mosaic of different vineyards in the village of La Horra in Burgos, totaling some 35 hectares. As all these are estate vineyards, they were much better controlled than those used for PSI, and the wine shows it in a challenging vintage like this one. It has a slightly diffe ...Read More »

2012 Raventos i Blanc "de Nit" Rosé Conca del Riu Anoia

90 points Vinous: "Light orange-pink. The incisive, mineral-laced nose evokes fresh strawberries, tangerines and flowers. Vibrant red fruit and orange pith flavors unfold slowly on lithe and nervy palate. In a distinctly elegant, understated style, with no excess fat and a firm closing bite. I find this to be as graceful and precise as numerous pink Champagnes that sell for much more." (1/2016) K&L Notes: Raventos i Blanc was founded in 1986 by Josep-Maria Raventos, a member of the Codorníu family who wished to create a small, quality-oriented winery that would stand apart from the lar...

Cardenal Mendoza Solera Spanish Brandy (750ml)

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "No wallflower, this one. The intensity of the bouquet starts right with the pour as waves of prunes and raisins rise from the glass; air contact stirs deeper aromas, most notably orange rind, peppermint and roasted nuts. This rich, heavyweight brandy features layers of flavor, including cocoa, toffee, caramel, cream Sherry and oaky vanilla. Finishes as large and robust as it started." (12/2002) K&L Notes: There is no better way to spend a winter evening than sipping on a nice glass of brandy. Cardinal Mendoza Brandy is produced in Jérez, Spain. Founded in 1781, Cardi...

2014 Alvaro Palacios "Camins del Priorat" Priorat

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This ultra young, jovial wine is a commercial success in the thirsty local restaurant market. It is really affordable too, considering that it bears the signature of Álvaro Palacios. It is bottled at different phases, released already because 2012 and 2013 were short vintages, and this lot is the first bottling with around four months in barrel; the last lot is kept in large oak and cement vats so all lots are more or less four months in barrels. Ripe, juicy and somewhat balsamic, it shows a Priorat character that is highly drinkable with fine tannins an ...Read More »

2014 Morgadío Albariño Rias Baixas

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Lightly briny aromas of sea foam blend nicely with crisp apple and mineral scents. This is focused on the palate, with a core of acidity and minerality that are the wine’s foundation. Apple, orange, mango and melon flavors end clean and minerally." (12/2015) Wine Spectator: "This juicy white offers bright, crisp flavors of grapefruit, tart peach and tarragon, with floral and mineral notes. The acidity is fresh and gives the wine focus."

Lustau Almacenista Oloroso "Pata de Gallina" (500ml)

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Juan García Jarana, the motorcycle magnate of Jerez, sells a portion of his soleras to Lustau for this delicate Oloroso. It starts with notes of candied almonds, coconut palm syrup and caramel. The hint of salinity lends complexity and freshness, without diminishing that delicate, pleasing sweetness." (6/2009) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Just add this oloroso to the growing list of excellent Sherries from Lustau. This one is tellingly nutty on the nose, thus the hazelnut and walnut flavors are expected as they become part of a bigger painting that includes coffee, bitter chocolate an ...Read More »

La Guita Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda

92 points Wine Spectator: "*Smart Buys* This round white has texture and grip, with rich and focused flavors of apple, almond, green olive and brine. Offers plenty of fruit, but remains grounded thanks to the briny character. Expressive and balanced." (11/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV La Guita Manzanilla has always had a very strong and marked character of brine, green olives and mustard seeds, with an overall sweet sensation. The medium-bodied palate is precise, very dry and intense, with some brine and rancio flavors and great length. The quality of this wine has increased notably in the last few ...Read More »

The juicy, focused and energetic palate reveals vibrant, mineral-tinged tangerine and raspberry flavors that deepen and expand with air. This vintage shows more depth and breadth than the 2012, with a taut, sharply focused finish that echoes the floral and red fruit notes emphatically."

Hidalgo "Napoleon" Amontillado Sanlucar de Barrameda (500ml)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium amber, nutty Napoleon Amontillado is a dry style sherry, also a fine aperitif." (2/2007) Wine & Spirits: "Subtle in its salinity while generous in its nutty flavors, this approachable Amontillado ends on light caramel flavors. For an aperitif with aged goat cheese." (6/2011) K&L Notes: What a terrific Amontillado! Gently toasted nut and candied citrus aromas lead to a subtle, elegant, nutty palate. While the salty, flor qualities are not cranking on all cylinders here, there is an elegance, softness, and long finishing character to this amontillado that makes it one of the ... Read More »

2006 La Rioja Alta "Viña Arana" Reserva Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Viña Arana Reserva is a blend of Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo (aka Cariñena) fermented with natural yeasts and had a slow malolactic fermentation of 56 days after which the wine was put in barrel in July 2007 where they matured for three years being racked every six months before they were bottled in December 2010. It feels like a ripe red, with notes of forest floor, dark cherries, spices and hints of leather, hung game, smoke and toasted notes. The palate is lush, and polished, with a velvety texture and moderate acidity. It is ready to be enjo ...Read More »

Cumin and cinnamon show on the palate and the refined finish is lovely, with anise and white pepper accents." (5/2001)
