2015 Losada Mencía Bierzo

95 points James Suckling: "A sweet raspberry nose that is so fresh and pure. Electric tension between the fruit, tannins and acidity, and a great texture too. A stunning wine that redefines what Spanish red wine can be. Drink now." (7/2017) K&L Notes: Located in the prime Bierzo production zone around Cacabelos, west of the city of Leon, Losada produces great examples of wine from this underappreciated (on these shores, at least) grape. With its peppery fruit and slatey minerality, Mencía wines are medium-bodied and aromatic with firm tannins that lend to cellar worthiness.

2010 La Rioja Alta "Viña Alberdi" Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2010 La Rioja Alta "Viña Alberdi" Reserva Rioja

95 points James Suckling: "Ripe and intense aromas of strawberries and blackberries with hints of black ink. Savory notes, too. Full-bodied, chewy and focused with linear fruit and character. 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. This wine is matured in American oak barrels built by their own coopers, the first year in new barrels and the second one in third-year barrels with four manual rackings. This is the younger of their wines, with even some red berr ...Read More »

Wonderful texture. Drink or hold." (12/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a completely different story. It is a worthy follower of the 2001, the greatest of the Viña Tondonia Reservas of recent times. It has the usual blend and usual levels of alcohol and acidity, bottled after six years in oak barrels.

2014 Celler Cal Pla "Black Slate" Porrera Priorat

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Part of the collection from different villages from Priorat, Cellar Cal Pla produced a 2014 Black Slate Porrera, which is a blend of 50% Garnacha with 40% Cariñena and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a village wine from 20- to 30-year-old vines on slate soils fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats and matured in 225- and 300-liter oak barrels (80% French oak, 20% Hungarian) for one year. The nose is beautiful, combining violets, a hint of beef blood, something ashy and an organic, soil note, developing a smoky bacon twist with time in the glas ...Read More »

2005 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Bosconia" Reserva Rioja

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A worthy follow up to the 2004 is the 2005 Viña Bosconia Reserva, a wine that they consider the most rustic and powerful in the winery, but that I find as elegant and subtle as it gets. This feels very much in line with the 2004, maybe a notch above even, a lower yielding year. The nose is somehow closed and feels young with the elegant rusticity lurking from the bottom of the glass, clean and precise. The tannins are velvety and there is great acidity--a constant here. The wine is terribly elegant. I simply loved this wine. 99,000 bottles were filled in ...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.

Superb quality considering the price. More delicate and refined than the 2010. Precise."

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."

Deeply concentrated dark berry and spicecake flavors are complicated by notes of smoky minerals and floral pastilles, while a subtle peppery quality adds spiciness. Supple tannins give shape to the very long, smoke-tinged finish, where the floral note echoes strongly.

A benchmark Rioja blend. SJE: A rich, sweet and savoury Reserva style with all the red cherries and a strong Grenache influence. It is somewhat old-fashioned, in a good way, with plentiful integrated oak and a fine rasp of tannin. PM: This has a wonderful oxidative style, giving it a superb savoury nose of leather.

The palate might also be a little shy and austere, but it feels very balanced with great freshness, fine tannins and a polished texture.

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.

It's also an old vine, field blend of Viura with some 10% of other white grapes that fermented in 600-liter oak barrels. It's a slightly riper and gentler vintage, with integrated acidity, showing the character of the year; it fermented naturally and tries to show the character of the grape and place, keeping the wine in contact with the lees but without bâtonnage.

It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer.

2004 Bodegas Numanthia-Termes "Numanthia" Toro

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Any aspiring collectors should add a case of this to their stash. The 2004 Numanthia comes from a different terroir with a different clone of Tinta de Toro. The vines for this cuvee range from 70-100 years of age with tiny yields of 1 ton of fruit per acre. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrel followed by 19 months in new French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. The wine is a glass-coating opaque purple with a killer nose of mineral, pencil lead, wild blueberry, and blackberry liqueur that roars from the glass. On the palat ...Read More »

2015 Algueira Joven Mencia Ribeira Sacra

91 points Vinous: "Bright magenta. Lively dark berry and floral scents, along with smoky mineral and white pepper flourishes. Juicy, focused and light on its feet, offering nervy boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter on the back half. Smoothly plays power off delicacy and finishes long and gently tannic, leaving a subtle violet note behind. (JR)" (5/2017) K&L Notes: Algueira proves with this wine that they not only excel at making first rate, oak aged wine from their Ribeira Sacra holdings, but a delicious unoaked example as well. This bottling typically shows spicy... Read More »

2014 Olivier Riviere "Ganko" Rioja Top Pick!
2014 Olivier Riviere "Ganko" Rioja

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I almost fell out of my chair when I smelled the 2014 Ganko. If the 2012 was voluptuous and heady, this 2014 is austere, cool, precise and chiseled. It has a slightly reductive nose with an intense stony/mineral sensation. There are floral notes, wild berries and some exotic spices. The blend has changed and it's now a 50/50 blend of Garnacha and Mazuelo, which provides acidity and a vertical sensation like no other vintage of Ganko in the past. This is all from the village of Cárdenas in the Alto Najerilla in Rioja Alta, from high altitude, old vines on ...Read More »

2000 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Reserva Vina Ardanza has 25% Garnacha blended with the Tempranillo. Light to medium ruby, it delivers an enticing bouquet of cedar, spice box, leather, forest floor, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a ripe, moderately dense wine with complex flavors and excellent balance. (JM)" (2/2008) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Fading medium-red color. Cherry-vanilla, tobacco and dried raspberry on the nose, with subtle baking spices, cedar and herbs adding complexity. Suave red fruit flavors are sweetened by vanillin oak spices and gently propped up by silky tannins. An unders ...Read More »

Emilio Hidalgo "Gobernador" Oloroso Seco Jerez

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Notes of anise and clove distinguish this robust Oloroso, accenting its salinity. It recalls the coasts of Jerez with aromas and flavors of iodine, salt and the signature earthy dampness of Hidalgo's very old soleras. Firm on the palate, with sharp acidity that penetrates the depths of the wine's flavors, this would be delicious with clams sautéed in olive oil and garlic." (6/2009) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Shows lovely focus and persistence, with a prominent thread of bitter almond that runs from start to finish, while singed clove, dried orange peel, juniper, roasted cedar and gi ...Read More »

2014 Suertes del Marqués "7 Fuentes" Valle de Orotava (Tenerife)

93 points James Suckling: "This shows asphalt-like aromas with some red fruit to boot. White pepper, too. Cool wine on the palate with spice and subtle berry flavors brought to the fore with high acidity. A blend of vijariego negro, tintilla, baboso negro listran negro (mission) and malvasia rosada. Drink now." (12/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The regular 2014 7 Fuentes is a village blend of some 35 separate plots, situated from 300 to 700 meters altitude on a diversity of volcanic soils and expositions; the wine wants to represent the Orotava. 2014 was an easy, healthy harvest without rains or excessive ...Read More »

Lustau "San Emilio Solera Reserva" Pedro Ximénez Jerez

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Although part of Lustau’s basic line, this Solera PX shows great depth of flavor, a complex network of caramelized aromas mingling with notes reminiscent of dried plums, chocolate and exotic spices. Sweet and opulent, this is creamy and rich in all its aspects." (10/2015) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "With piercing aromas of raisin pudding, molasses and spice, this rolls out the welcome mat and more. Luscious is probably as tame as you can put it; this is a ribald sweet wine with acidic backbone and hugely intense flavors of baked brown sugar, cinnamon cake and molasses. Powerful but s ...Read More »

2014 Terroir al Limit "Torroja" Priorat

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The village red 2014 Torroja Vi de Vila wants to show the marriage between Garnacha and Cariñena blended in a 50/50 proportion and grown on diverse plots of the village where the character is warm, but it's not Porrera, with good structure from the soils that are slate-based. Cariñena works better in Torroja than Garnacha, and it's not easy to grow a good Garnacha there, so he looks for fresher places, lower and flatter if you like. It fermented with full clusters for ten days and matured in oak foudres for 16 months. However, there is no oak whatsoever ...Read More »

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. Hailing from a long line of vineyard worker/owners, Puelles knows the terruño in his littl... Read More »

2014 Dominio de Pingus "Flor de Pingus" Ribera del Duero

95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, smoke and cedar. Round and full-bodied with firm tannins. Dried-fruit finish. Shows smoke and berry undertones. The real deal. Better in 2018." (12/2016) 93-95 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Explosively perfumed aromas of fresh boysenberry, floral oils and incense, with suave vanilla and woodsmoke nuances building in the glass. Sweet and plush on the palate, offering intense, smooth dark fruit liqueur and spicecake flavors. Really stains the palate, finishing with superb thrust and clarity; velvety tannins add gentle grip.

Antonio Barbadillo "Obispo Gascón" Palo Cortado

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Palo Cortado Obispo Gascon, produced from Palomino grapes averaging 20 years old, and shows the telltale nose of Palo Cortado with its lactic touch and an off-dry nose of apricots, blond tobacco and spices. The palate is dominated by the salty notes (common to all Barbadillo wines), sharp, medium-bodied, with great length. Drink 2013-2019. (LG)" (8/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A plump style, with glazed peach, toasted pecan and ginger notes backed by elegant green tea, ginger and incense accents. The very dry, walnut- and iodine-edged finish holds on thanks to riveting ac ...Read More »

2011 Cune "Imperial" Reserva Rioja

96 points James Suckling: "Enticing aromas of ripe strawberries and raspberries with a mineral and salty character. Iodine, too. Tree bark. Full body, fine-grained and concentrated tannins and a long and clean, salty and light coffee finish. Great balance and structure. As it should be. Drink or hold." (1/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Ruby-red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red berries, cherry pit, cured tobacco and toasty oak, joined by a vanilla nuance that builds in the glass. Juicy red currant and bitter cherry flavors show very good depth and complementary nuances of mocha, spicecake ...Read More »
