2014 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2014 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

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 »

2014 Bodegas Puelles Segundo Año Rioja

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 »

2014 Castillo de Viñas Crianza Rioja

Our newest direct-import Rioja comes from Rioja Baja, where the climate is a bit warmer and more Mediterranean, but where the Garnacha is arguably the best in all Rioja, the Graciano ripens more easily and shows great promise, and Tempranillo, planted on choice parcels like they are here, is also quite good. Castillo de Viñas was a label put together for us by one of our contacts in Rioja, and is made by the Burgo Viejo winery, a group of growers who have some great quality vineyards in the area. 90% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano.

2016 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.

They are also relatively high elevation, at 2,000 to 2,400 feet above sea level. This wine shows wonderful, pure aromatics of blueberry, black raspberries, chalk and spring flowers.

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.

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 in their own vineyards in the middle Penedès region. Here the Garriga brothers are quite pleased with the results they see from the Pinot Noir grown in chalky-clay soils. They have been working organically for the past several years and their first harvest doing so with certification was 2017. We direct import this delicious Cava and it is arguably one of our best values in rosé bubbly right now. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Can Mayol is one of our favorite Spanish direct import properties.

The 999 is a blend of Pinot Noir and Xarel-lo Vermell (rare red skinned mutation of Xarel-lo), full of crisp, tangy red fruit flavors, and without a hint of sugar (dosage) added. If you like your bubbly dry, this is one to try! Very interesting, delicious and a real overachiever at under $14! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

2016 Adegas Valtea Albariño Rias Baixas

Our third vintage of this DI Albariño, this wine shows everything we like in the grape: hints of lemongrass, lively stone fruit and a brisk, saline tinged palate. Located in the sub-zone of Condado do Tea, where the days are a bit warmer and evenings are slightly cooler, there is a wonderful mid-palate presence to complement the typically lean and mineral qualities of Albariño. A classic with any shellfish, especially Dungeness crab!

2015 Raventos i Blanc "de Nit" Rosé Conca del Riu Anoia

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 larger wineries in the area. Today they own about 300 acres of vineyards (with a high percentage of chalk in the soil, like Champagne) planted mostly to local varieties such as Macabeo (Viura), Xarel-lo and Parellada. All three of these grapes, as well as a small portion of direct-press Monastrell, are found in this delicate, beautiful rosé bottling.

Alvaro Palacios is undoubtedly one of the architects and primary reasons for Priorat's elevation to premier fine wine region over the past 20 years.

While they boast some of the best of historic, older 20th century vintages, in modern times they continue to produce very solid, traditionally oriented Riojas in two main product ranges: Imperial, which represents only Reservas and Gran Reservas in limited quantities, and their basic Cune line, into which this Crianza falls.

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.

Ginger and briny notes give this a savory character. A muscular style."

Produced from nearly 100% estate, biodynamically grown Parellada, Macabeo and Xarel-Lo, this just may be the classiest, best-made brut Cava (though not labeled as such due to the estate's disagreement with who is allowed to call their wine Cava) currently on the market. From their variety of calcareous clay soils, to the careful harvesting and proximity of their gravity-flow winery, both the quality of raw material and oenological know-how are abundant at this terrific estate. There is a very tiny dosage, less than 6g/l, and the overall impression here i... Read More »

2012 Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza Rioja

Few traditionally styled Rioja's (read: delicately fruity and spicy, medium weight, used American oak barrels, longer ageing, minimal to no filtering) get it as consistently right as these folks do. Their wines come exclusively from grapes grown in their prime Labastida and San Vicente vineyards in Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Alta, respectively. With a wealth of established vines in these exclusive sections of Rioja, Pecina is able to make some of the regions most delicious, classic wines, from Crianza on up to Gran Reserva.

2015 Valdesil "Montenovo" Godello Valdeorras

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Montenovo is the entry level white, produced with Godello grapes from back slate soils and bottled early trying to preserve the fruit character of the grape. They consider 2015 a Mediterranean vintage, with a dry summer in July, August and September. The grapes are pressed in absence of oxygen and the must fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats, where the wine was kept for three months before bottling. The nose is a bit muted and takes some time to unfurl the white acacia flower and apple aromas. The palate is quite vibrant, cl ...Read More »

2016 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 »

2014 Hacienda Solano Ribera del Duero

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The eponymous 2014 Hacienda Solano is produced with Tempranillo from the village of La Aguilera fermented in stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak barrels for ten months. It's a serious Tempranillo with power and ripeness keeping the freshness and balance. There are some earthy and smoky aromas too. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and good freshness. This is a very good expression of the year, ripe and fresh. Incredible good value for Ribera del Duero. (LG)" (2/2017) K&L Notes: Based in the commune of Burgos, specifically w... 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 »
