2013 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! This crianza is a potpouri of mixed berrie... 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 2014 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 »

2016 Ameztoi "Rubentis" Rosé Getariako Txakolina

91 points Vinous: "Light brilliant pink. Incisive, mineral-accented citrus fruit and red berry scents, along with a suave floral nuance. Silky and sharply focused on the palate, showing juicy strawberry, orange zest and mineral qualities and a deeper suggestion of peach pit. Packs a lot of flavor but comes off lithe. The mineral and floral elements carry through a very long, precise, seamless finish.

2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja

(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. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungen... Read More »

Mas Codina Brut Rosé Cava Penedes

Mas Codina is a 40 hectare estate in Penedès which dates back to 1681. This Brut Rosé consists of Pinot Noir grown on their own vineyards in the middle Penedes region. Here the Garriga brothers are quite pleased with the results they see from their Pinot Noir growing in chalky clay soils. Since we direct import this delicious Cava, it is arguably one of our best values in rosé bubbly right now. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

2011 Ferrer Bobet "Vinyes Velles" Priorat (Elsewhere $45)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Vinyes Velles is a superb effort for the warm, dry growing season, a little less open than the 2012, at least in the nose, where the fruit is black rather than red. On the palate there is a little more astringency and the tannins seem a bit more rustic, but still come through as a powerful and (contradictory) elegant 2011.

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."

A K&L Direct Import! This is a new wine for us from the Bodegas Puelles stable. "Segundo año" means second year, and refers to the fact that it is released in the wine's second year following harvest. Prior to the more widespread usage of terms such as crianza, reserva and gran reserva, wineries would indicate the age of their wine by stating segundo, cuarto, quinto or whichever was the appropriate year. Not merely a quaint throwback, however, this segundo año is delicious, with bright, crisp fruit of excellent purity and a judicious amount of barrel ag... Read More »

2016 Bodegas Muga Rioja Rosado

Muga makes one of the most distinctively delicious rosados in Rioja, indeed in all of Spain. It is a style referred to locally as "clarete," which is a lighter type of rosé made by combining white wine with direct press rosé, as opposed to the saignee method where color is derived from a pre-fermentation maceration on the skins of the grapes. Unlike 99.9% of other rosé wines, this one also sees a brief period of time in used oak barrels. The wine is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Viura, and shows very precise, tangy small red berry fruits, as well ... Read More »

90 points James Suckling: "A fresh nose of currants, black cherries and plums. Some cedary notes, too. Full body, concentrated, polished and juicy tannins a long, fresh and bloody-orange-like finish." (12/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Crianza, pure Tempranillo, fermented in oak vats and matured in barrique for 16 months, feels unusually classic in its profile of aromas, nicely developed and with contained ripeness. The medium-bodied palate felt like a great improvement over the 2011 that I tasted last time, with fine tannins and very good balance. (LG)" (8/2016) Wine & Spirits: "This is old-fashioned Rioja in its ga ...Read More »

2014 Bodegas Olivares "Altos de la Hoya" Jumilla

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Monastrell Altos de la Hoya is produced from the fruit of dry-farmed, ungrafted, old Monastrell vines and some 5% Garnacha. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in 10,000-liter stainless steel tanks and matured for six to eight months in used barriques and larger oak vats. The nose is clean and textbook Mediterranean with aromas of esparto grass, tree bark, blackberries and thyme, with perfectly integrated oak. The palate feels compact and balanced, with fine tannins and good acidity. I think this shows very well for such a challenging vintage in ...Read More »

2009 La Rioja Alta "Viña Arana" Reserva Rioja

94 points James Suckling: "Bright aromas of dried strawberries, plums and kirsch undertones. Flower petals as well. Full body and lots of bright red fruit on the palate. Tannins melt in your mouth.

2015 Bernabeleva "Camino de Navaherreros" Garnacha Vinos de Madrid

This is as elegant an example of Garnacha (a.k.a. Grenache) as you are likely to find. Catalan winemaker Marc Isart Pinos is taking old vines, applying excellent viticultural work, fermenting in foudre (with some whole clusters used, as well as long maceration on the skins for further complexity/elegance), and bottling with a minimum of sulphur to create this beautiful, expressive wine. A good bit more tangy, racy and serious than most Grenache at this price, the Camino de Navaherreros is sure to please those who prefer layered nuance and energetic flavo... Read More »

2012 Bodegas Numanthia-Termes "Termes" Toro (Elsewhere $24)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Since its inception, Numanthia has never once bottled a disappointing Termes. Aromas of lemon peel and orange rind mix with blackberry and cassis notes. This feels tight and tannic, but structured and appropriate. Dark-berry and chocolate flavors finish tannic but healthy. This is true-to-form Toro. (MS)" (8/2016) 91 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Powerful, smoke-accented aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, floral pastilles and minerals. Delivers a suave blend of richness and vivacity, offering juicy boysenberry and mulberry flavors and a building n ...Read More »

2015 Vivanco Blanco Rioja

Produced from a blend of Viura, Malvasia and Tempranillo Blanco, this is a wonderfully fresh, minerally white typical of the best unoaked whites of the region. Perhaps there is a bit more flesh and richness due to the presence of Tempranillo Blanco, a naturally occuring mutation of the Tempranillo grape that gives wine of great character, richness and intensity.
