2012 Marqués de Murrieta Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2012 Marqués de Murrieta Reserva Rioja

95 points James Suckling: "Terrific aromas of currants, berries, cinnamon and perfume. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a dense palate. Superb length and refinement. Compact. Super length. Superb quality considering the price. More delicate and refined than the 2010. Precise." (12/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The blend of the 2012 Rioja Reserva is significantly different from previous vintages, with more Graciano and Garnacha. The blend was approximately 77% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha, 8% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo. After a very dry growing season, the harvest was saved by some rains at the end of September, ...Read More »

Full body, juicy tannins and bright acidity that follows through to a long, clean and earthy finish. A great wine that shows structure and complexity. Drink or hold."

2014 Mas Que Vinos "Ercavio" Tempranillo Roble Tierra de Castilla

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Ercavio Roble is pure Tempranillo that followed a classical vinification, fermentation in stainless steel, malolactic fermentation in cement and a short aging (six months) in used French barriques. The nose is very classic, too, nicely crafted, fine with a nice combination between berry and spice with subtle oak. It has a commercial profile in a very pleasant way. The palate shows very good volume and a fine texture with elegant tannins. It tastes like a much more expensive wine. This is superb value and a faithful representation of Tempranillo ...Read More »

Lovely tension. Refined and polished. A wine with superb depth. Always a masterpiece. Better in 2018 but a joy to taste now."

Very finely crafted. Drink or hold." (12/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Viña Alberdi is a Tempranillo blend from different vineyards from what they consider an extraordinary vintage.

2010 Cune Gran Reserva Rioja

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Certain wines exude a sense of elevated excellence. This one gets to that level via aromas of spice cake, baked plum and tobacco aromas. A stocky saturated palate is structured and built to age, while this tastes of cool blue fruits, herbs, coffee and chocolate. A smoothly textured finish deals cocoa and mocha notes.

Medium to full body, a super-soft texture, silky fine-grained tannins and a long, savory finish. A wonderful and elegant wine. Drink now or hold." (12/2016) K&L Notes: Fredi Torres has been steadily making a name for himself in the Montsant and Priorat regions. A leader of the new school in Priorat, Fredi prefers to let the fruit in the vineyard do the talking, playing around with some whole clusters and preferring that the oak imprint be dialed back in his wines.

(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.

Intense, deeply pitched raspberry liqueur and cherry-cola flavors stain the palate while displaying a distinctly vibrant quality. Blends power, depth and finesse in a way that's uncommon at anywhere near this price point. Closes sweet, supple and very long, with velvety tannins coming in late to add shape and gentle grip.

2010 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Since the 2010 harvest, they ferment plot by plot, and it shows. This Valbuena has almost 100 components in it, smaller lots, all of them corresponding to a plot of vines. It has all the signs of being one of the best vintages ever for this second wine from Vega Sicilia, mostly Tempranillo but with 5% Merlot that matured five months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 18 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), three months in used barrels and then five months in the vats again before being bottled in May 2013. 2010 seems to have the exuberan ...Read More »

Those should soon be mature enough to go into the wine (they were planted in 2004 and they will make it into the Ardanza blend from 2007-2008).

This wine, which offers up copious quantities, of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit, licorice, graphite and meaty notes, offers fabulous aromatics, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful, pure texture and a long, heady finish with subtle oak.

2014 Jorge Ordóñez Botani Muscat Dry Sierras de Málaga

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Ordoñez family, Jorge and his sister Victoria, were the first to try and produce a dry, crisp wine from 100% Muscatel de Alexandria in Malaga. This area is known for historic, sweet wines, with ancient history stretching back to 600 B.C. for viticulture. These steep, almost unreal hillside vineyards are planted in decomposed red slate, with a mixture of white quartz. They are complex soils, but the Botani has turned out to be an incredible success story and a great value.

It was foot trodden and fermented in cement vats and aged for nine months in used 500-liter oak barrels. In 2013 the vines worked until the very end as it was a year where there was more rain than average and a relatively cool summer (sometimes ripening occurs because of dehydration rather than true ripening) resulting in a perfect ripeness but quite contained.

Aged in both tank and French oak, it comes from 60-80-year-old vines planted in limestone soils at a relatively high elevation of over 1,600 feet. Its opaque purple color is followed by copious aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, camphor, licorice, white flowers and a chalky limestone/dusty character.

2007 Bodegas Puelles Rioja Reserva

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Reserva showed a strong reduction when uncorked and should benefit from decanting in advance. Pure Tempranillo, it matured in barrels for 20 months. The nose, after the reduction has blown off, is quite classical but clean showing roasted aromas and hints of dark spices, balsam and perhaps leather. The palate is quite lively, with good, refreshing acidity and fully resolved tannins. (LG)" (4/2015) K&L Notes: Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja.

(12/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red 2012 Reserva is sold as Crianza or Reserva depending on the market, but it's always a blend of Tempranillo with some 20% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from the lower part of the valley of the Oja-Tirón river.

The portfolio of under $25 a bottle selections represents remarkable value for their complex, well-made personalities.

That year they harvested 25 days later than the recent average, so the grapes had time to ripen slowly to perfection with a long cycle that also held acidity and the wines are very fresh.

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.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The yeasty and smoky 2013 Refugi is a wine they produce in a refuge (refugi is the Catalan word) in the vineyard, ten meters below ground, and it's mostly Xarello with 10% Chardonnay; it is partly fermented in new 500-liter Hungarian oak barrels with a second fermentation in bottle following the traditional method. It was kept with the lees for no less than 20 months. The effect of the oak is noticeable but not overwhelming, providing sensations of toasted bread and cold bonfire. The palate shows lively acidity and effervescent bubbles that provide fresh ...Read More »

2014 D. Ventura "Viña do Burato" Ribeira Sacra

91 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby-red. Musky, spice-accented red berries and floral oils on the perfumed nose. Vibrant, sharply focused flavors of bitter cherry and redcurrant deepen and stretch out with aeration. Reveals a sweeter, darker berry character on the persistent finish, which displays excellent delineation, supple tannins and a late jolt of candied violet. All stainless steel here.

Emilio Hidalgo "Morenita" Cream Jerez

91 points Wine Spectator: "This is bright for a cream Sherry, with green tea and singed ginger notes out front, providing heft to the date, raisin, caramel and charred bourbon barrel accents. The sleek finish lets the green tea edge reemerge, with well-embedded acidity for length. Drink now. (JM)" (10/2013) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Best Buy*** Smooth and sweet, like a cream Sherry is supposed to be. On the nose, this one easily shifts from ripe apricot and peach fruit to nuts and saline. The palate starts with a blast of coffee and mocha and then folds in brown sugar and spice. Sweet, long and generous ...Read More »

Pérez Barquero "Gran Barquero" Amontillado Montilla Moriles

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Amontillado Gran Barquero is an impressive 25-30 years old. It wears a dark amber robe and a subtle, elegant and focused nose. It’s an Amontillado of finesse, with biological, salty notes and roasted almonds, close to the Fino character. The palate shows a medium-bodied wine of a velvety texture, fine acidity and clean, focused flavors, It represents superb value for the quality it delivers. (LG)" (8/2013) 94 points Wine & Spirits: "Pérez Barquero was founded in 1905, but the name was known only locally until 1985, when businessman Rafael Cordoba bought the winery in Montilla ...Read More »

2009 Señorío de P. Peciña Reserva Rioja

93 points Vinous: "Ruby with a bright rim. Lively, expansive aromas of red berry preserves, floral pastilles and vanilla, with a smoky mineral overtone. Seamless and sweet on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and cherry flavors sharpened by juicy acidity and a hint of white pepper. Finishes sappy, precise and very long, with smooth, harmonious tannins. This wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in used American oak for three years. (JR)" (11/2015) 92 points James Suckling: "Delicate aromas of dried red fruits such as dried strawberries and dried cranberries complemented by soft-spice ...Read More »

2010 Vivanco Reserva Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, more balanced, classical and elegant was the 2010 Reserva, with good balance between fruit freshness and élevage notes. It's mostly Tempranillo with 10% Graciano matured in barrel for two years. There are notes of incense and cigar ash, baking spices and ripe berries. The palate is medium to full-bodied with sleek tannins and a silky texture. It has very good freshness and balance. Superb Reserva at a very sensible price. (LG)" (8/2016) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This dense red delivers a mouthful of flavor, with rich notes of plum pudding, baking spices, coffee and toa ...Read More »

2010 Bodegas J A Calvo Casajus "Vendimia Seleccionada" Ribera del Duero Back In Stock!
2010 Bodegas J A Calvo Casajus "Vendimia Seleccionada" Ribera del Duero

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Casajus Vendimia Seleccionada comes from five vineyards. It is fermented in small stainless steel tanks and then aged in new and used Allier barrels for 14 months. It comes across more introverted on the nose compared to the Splendor, with broody dark berries and dried violets. The palate has a sorbet-like freshness on the entry, which belies the firm backbone to this wine. It sets you up for a nicely structured, reserved almost aloof finish that displays fine precision. This has real character and class. Drink now-2018. I was unfamiliar with ...Read More »

2008 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Cubillo" Crianza Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The first of the reds here is the 2008 Viña Cubillo Tinto Crianza from a cooler vintage that produced some austere and serious wines--a year with higher acidity and lively fruit. It feels effervescent and it makes you salivate. This is usually a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from 50-year-old vines that ferments in ancient oak vats, and ages in barrel for three years. This cuvée has increased its quality tremendously since the 1990s. These cooler years provide citric freshness, and a very fine texture and vibrant acidi ...Read More »

2013 Bodegas Volver "Tarima Hill" Monastrell Alicante

91 points Vinous: "Bright purple. An exotically perfumed bouquet displays scents of fresh black and blue fruits, licorice, vanilla and peppery spices. Juicy and incisive on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry and cassis flavors that flesh out on the back half. Sappy and concentrated, yet quite lively, finishing with smooth, shaping tannins and a strong punch. This sexy wine went through malolactic fermentation and was aged in French oak barrels for 20 months. (JR)" (1/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best is the 2013 Tarima Hill, which is 100% Monastrell from vines planted between 1935-1970 in ...Read More »

2009 Señorío de P. Peciña Gran Reserva Rioja

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is one more exceptional red with an extended aging in barrel that was only produced in 1998, 2001 and 2003, and now in this 2009 Señorío de P. Peciña Gran Reserva. It is the usual Tempranillo with 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano, but in this case from 50-year-old vines from their Finca Iscorta vineyard in the Sonsierra zone. The wine is aged in well-seasoned American oak barrels for four years with manual and gravity racking twice per year. If the nose could somehow remind you of the 2009 Reserva, this is more open and aromatic, more nuanced, and the p ...Read More »

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...

2013 Honorío Rubio "Macerado" Blanco Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The orange-wine wannabe 2013 Macerado is a Viura that had long skin contact (approximately one year), as seen in the wines of Georgia. Less orange than others, it's more of a deep golden, and portraying a very personal nose. Initially it smelled of syrup, but it opened up and changed tremendously developing medicinal aromas, hints of herbal tea, notes of mint and quince paste. It was a fascinating nose to follow and the palate was impressive, with bold flavors and great freshness. (LG)" (8/2016) K&L Notes: Honorío Rubio is a Riojano white wine specialist. In a land b...
