2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja

92 points James Suckling: "This has a beautiful depth of fruit with spice and dark fruits. Hints of parsley and cilantro. Full and super silky with a long and beautiful finish." (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 »

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 »

2008 Bodegas Puelles Rioja Reserva (Previously $18)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was really taken by the 2008 Reserva, which is a subtle, serious and somehow closed red with insinuating aromas and very good integration of the oak. The palate might also be a little shy and austere, but it feels very balanced with great freshness, fine tannins and a polished texture. This is great value. 10,000 bottles produced and filled in the summer of 2011, so the wine has had enough time in bottle to be ready by now.

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 »

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.

2005 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
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."

Classic Rioja style. Que lindo! Drink now." (10/2016) 95 points Decanter: "Seductive and complex nose, typical Mediterranean expression of warm berry fruit, cherries, blackcurrants and plums. Explosion of fruit on palate with roses, chocolate and vanilla, silky tannins and racy acidity."

2012 Marqués de Murrieta Reserva Rioja

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 »

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 »

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.

Great ageing potential. Drink or hold." (7/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Viña Arana Reserva is mostly Tempranillo with some 5% Mazuelo (Cariñena), with a long aging in oak barrels (three years with six manual rackings).

2013 Raventos i Blanc "de la Finca" Gran Reserva Conca del Riu Anoia

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 De la Finca, from the estate, is the wine originally designed by Pepe Raventós' grandfather and it is produced with grapes picked from the Vinya dels Fòssils, the fossil vineyards part of El Serral, the east-facing part of their porperty—which has limestone soils from 16 million years ago rich in marine fossils. It tends to produce the more mineral wines here. It is a blend of 50% Xarello, 40% Macabeo and 10% Parellada. Each variety is produced separately, blended and put in bottle for the second fermentation, and the bottles are never disgorged ...Read More »

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.

2015 Borsao "Tres Picos" Garnacha Campo de Borja

92 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Powerful aromas of black currant and candied cherry pick up incense, vanilla and exotic spice nuances with air. 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. (JR)" (5/2017) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, and clearly one of the greatest values in the wine world, is the 2015 Tres Picos.

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.

Alvear "1927" Pedro Ximenez Solera Montilla-Moriles (375ml)

This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. 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.

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 »

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.

2012 Bodega Numanthia "Numanthia" Toro (Previously $60)

This feels massive on the palate but sensationally balanced. Flavors of blackberry, coffee, mocha and toasty oak finish spicy, smooth and heady. Drink this exemplary Toro through 2023.

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.

Produced from old vines, this is a serious wine, with juicy fruit, a fine palate and good freshness for the conditions of the year.

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. (LG)" (6/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This red delivers a firm texture and good cut to the ripe flavors, showing plum, blackberry, licorice and toast notes, featuring firm tannins and moderate acidity. Intense, with a lingering finish. Drink now throu ...Read More »

2013 Can Mayol Loxarel "Refugi" Reserva Brut Nature Penedes

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 »

2013 Hacienda Solano Vinas Viejas Ribera del Duero

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Selección Viñas Viejas is a mixture of Tempranillo grapes from multiple small plots of old vines in the village of La Aguilera, where the family has the vineyards and the winery. There is low alcohol and very good freshness here, despite the fact that it was harvested in mid-October. It matured in oak barrels for one year. 2013 was a challenging vintage, a cool year, but with problems of botrytis during the harvest, so it was necessary to sort and select thoroughly, and they even sold some grapes. The old vines are harvested earlier, and these w ...Read More »

2015 Palacio del Burgo Tinto Rioja (Elsewhere $15) Top Pick!
2015 Palacio del Burgo Tinto Rioja (Elsewhere $15)

90 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Vibrant red and dark berry scents are complemented by hints of cola and candied flowers. Fresh and energetic on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that deepen and become sweeter on the back half. Gentle tannins build slowly on the clinging finish but are no match for the plush, primary fruit. This delicious Rioja drinks surprisingly well already. (JR)" (5/2017) K&L Notes: Palacio del Burgo is produced by Burgo Viejo, one of the more serious producers of value oriented Rioja in the entire region. From their base in the Rioja ... Read More »

2016 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina

90 points Wine & Spirits: "The acidity is fierce in this textbook Txakoli, and the citrus flavors accentuate the cutting acidity. Then deeper flavors of lime and pineapple appear, calming the wine for raw oysters." (8/2017) K&L Notes: Ameztoi produces some of the tastiest, most representative and classic txakoli: the delicious, bright, slightly petillant (fizzy), low alcohol wines that are consumed like water in Spanish Euskadi (Basque Country). Vineyards are a stone's throw from the ocean, full of verdant, green cover throughout the year. Predominantly Hondarribi Zuri, with 10% Hondarribi Bel... Read More »

1998 Bodegas Riojanas Monte Real Gran Reserva Rioja

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Editors’ Choice * Floral cherry, raspberry and aged wood aromas are elegant and mature. This Rioja is in regal condition, with smooth tannins and integrated acidity. Dried cherry, red plum, herbs and vanilla create a classic Rioja flavor profile. A supple, long finish puts this in perfect drinking shape, which doesn’t mean it can’t last another through 2025 or so." (5/2015) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red with a pale rim. Pungent, spicy nose shows pure cherry, redcurrant and plum complemented by succulent herbs, vanillin oak spice and a hint of dried flowers. Supple, lush and ...Read More »

Lustau East India Solera

92 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a selection from botas of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez raised separately and then blended to age for three years in solera. The result puts the sweetness of the PX in front, with flavors of plum jam and tobacco. The salinity of the Oloroso brings freshness and fine minerality that play softly in the background." (6/2011) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This traditional wine from Lustau is made in the Cream style. It’s dark and pretty, with PX-ish prune and caramel aromas. It’s not as thick as Pedro Ximénez, and thus isn’t syrupy. But it’s certainly rich and full of cookie, molasses, ...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 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 »

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 »

Gonzalez Byass "Matusalem" Oloroso VORS (375ml)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Matusalem 30 Anos Oloroso VORS used to be sold as Oloroso Dulce, but this category is no more contemplated by the appellation, so technically it will be a Cream, but that’s a category that has some not-so-positive connotations in certain markets. Anyway, it is produced with 75% Palomino and 25% Pedro Ximenez grapes. The solera dates from 1847, and the bottled wine is on average 30 years old. The palate is very sweet, with the Oloroso character fighting hard not to be dominated by the typical flavors of Pedro Ximenez, dry figs, coffee, arrope, and ...Read More »

2012 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2012 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Valbuena was cropped from a vintage with a very dry and warm summer that resulted in very healthy grapes. Since the 2010 vintage, this wine is fermented plot by plot following the findings from a soils study they did. The élevage is in French and American oak barrels that on average lasts some 18 months followed by another 18 months in 20,000-liter oak vats, but of course some lots had more time in barrique and others more time in vat. It has ripe tannins and a powerful mouthfeel but with a soft texture. Even if it's not widely mentioned, it alw ...Read More »
