2007 Marques de Murrieta "Castillo Ygay" Gran Reserva Especial Rioja Top Pick!
2007 Marques de Murrieta "Castillo Ygay" Gran Reserva Especial Rioja

98 points James Suckling: "The aromas of this show an amazing freshness of flowers and herbs such as lavender, rosemary, and violet. Then it goes to raspberry, candy and currants. Black licorice too. A truly great wine on the nose. Full-bodied, racy and linear. So polished. It's like a red ruby. 86% tempranillo and 14% mazuelo in the blend. For release in September 2015. Great length and future. Give it three years or so. Or decant two hours in advance." 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A worthy follow-up of the 2005, the 2007 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial will be released in late 2015. This is a cuvée of mos ...Read More »

2007 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2007 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Viña Ardanza Reserva is a blend of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha, the Tempranillo from 30-year-old vineyards La Cuesta and Montecillo in the villages of Fuenmayor and Cenicero, and the Garnacha from old head-pruned vines at 600 meters altitude in Tudelilla, in Rioja Baja, from plots next to their Finca La Pedriza. 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). The grapes are fermented separately with natural yeasts and the Tempranillo then matured in ...Read More »

2004 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Reserva Rioja

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. The nose feels savory (if that's possible–umami?) and developed, with tertiary aromas and good balance between spices, leathery notes, cherries and balsamic notes of cigar box and incense. The palate is both round and crisp, with refined tannins. It has very good balance with subtle acidity and ...Read More »

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 »

2013 Mas Que Vinos "Ercavio" Tempranillo Roble Tierra de Castilla Top Pick!
2013 Mas Que Vinos "Ercavio" Tempranillo Roble Tierra de Castilla

90 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. Smoke-accented dark berries and cherry on the fragrant nose. Smooth, sweet and open-knit, offering pliant blackberry and violet pastille flavors that tighten up and gain focus on the back half. Nicely plays richness off vivacity and finishes with very good persistence and supple tannins, leaving a juicy berry note behind. This wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, with the malo taking place in clay amphoras, followed by eight months of aging in used French and American oak. (JR)" (12/2015)

2012 Condado de Haza Ribera del Duero

93 points Wine Spectator: "*Smart Buys* This rich red shows a deep core of plum, bramble and mineral, with notes of loam and game that impart a savory character. Solid tannins support a thick texture, while balsamic acidity keeps this balanced. Austere but harmonious. Drink now through 2024." (5/2016) K&L Notes: Alejandro Fernandez' Condado de Haza may be less famous than its sister winery, Pesquera, but it also produces terrific wines that are classically built Ribera del Dueros. These wines are made not to coat the palate with sweet oak and glycerine, but rather to age gracefully and accompa... Read More »

2013 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra Terra Alta

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(raised entirely in concrete): Brilliant ruby. Pure, high-pitched aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, blood orange and fresh rose, plus a bright mineral overtone. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering sappy red fruit and floral pastille flavors lifted by spice and mineral nuances. Closes spicy, nervy and long, with silky tannins making a late appearance. Finding a wine with this much clarity and precision is a tough job at double and even triple the price of this one.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I’ve loved this wine in the past and the 2013, a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 12 months in French oak, is stunning, simply over-delivering in so many different ways. 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. What’s amazing is the French oak is all two-year-old, super-expensive Darnajou barrels. For $20 this i ...Read More »

2011 Finca El Encinal Crianza Ribera del Duero

Lithe and lively. Drink now through 2021. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,500 cases made." (12/2015) K&L Notes: Owned by the historic, traditionally minded Bodegas Franco Españolas in Rioja, Finca El Encinal is a similarly traditionally oriented Ribera del Duero.

2009 Can Mayol Loxarel "Gran Reserva de Familia" Brut Nature Penedes

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Gran Reserva de Familia is a traditional blend of the three Cava grapes produced by the traditional method (but it's not a Cava, it's a Penedès sparkling wine), which aged in contact with the lees in bottle for 50 months with no dosage. The nose is full of fennel, flowers and aromatic herbs, with hints of orange peel that made me think of a chalky barrel-fermented white, more a white wine which happens to have bubbles. Those are the flavors you find in the palate, certainly unusual but they give it a completely different and welcomed personality ...Read More »

Closes on a sweet note of spicy oak, with supple tannins, very good tenacity and a touch of fruitcake.

Aromas of kirsch, lavender and strawberries emerge from this medium-bodied, dense, rich 2012. (RP)" (11/2013) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby.

2012 Bodegas Teso La Monja "Almirez" Toro

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Almirez (a 1,000-case cuvée of 100% Tinta de Toro) was aged 14 months in French oak. This sensational wine comes from vines planted between 1949 and 1999. Yields were a conservative 1.8 tons of fruit per acre. An inky/purple color is followed by aromas of camphor, ground pepper, blackberries and cassis. This full-bodied, Northern Rhône Valley-like Spanish red exhibits meaty/lard notes, terrific density and purity, and a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds. It should drink nicely for a decade or more. This large estate in Toro is owned by the Eg ...Read More »

The 2011 Rioja Reserva, their volume red, is a blend of 89% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo, 4% Graciano and 2% Garnacha Tinta from a diversity of plots in the Ygay Estate. The different varieties fermented separately in stainless steel vats. It matured in 225-liter American oak barrels for some 20 months, at least during eight months in new oak.

2012 Bodegas Muga Reserva Rioja

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 varieties are fermented and aged separately until most of it (around 80%) is blended the summer after. Even when they do not produce some of the top cuvées (like in 2012), those grapes are never used for this wine. 2012 saw good ripeness, and the wine shows it, but doesn't show any excess.

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 is sourced mostly form the Viña de la Plana, which has plenty of clay on the chalky mother rock (120 centimeters below) and quite deep soils that produce wines of good freshness and balance.

2012 Casa Castillo "Las Gravas" Jumilla

This wine saw a big change with the 2008 vintage, when Cabernet Sauvignon disappeared from the blend and got more focused and true to its birthplace. 2012 could be the finest vintage to date, as there was no 2012 Pie Franco, as quantities were really short and those grapes are in this b ...Read More »

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Raspberry, cherry and spicy oak on the fragrant nose. Spicy, sweet red fruit flavors are complemented by vanilla, mocha and licorice, with a smoky note sneaking in on the back half. Finishes with an echo of vanilla, soft tannins and very good persistence. (JR)" (9/2013) Jancis Robinson: "*Good Value* Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo, Graciano. This winery dates back to 1973 and they work with vineyards from Baja and Alavesa zones to produce their wine. Cold maceration, 21 days of alcoholic fermentation, 18 months in American and French oak. The wine is a blend from ...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 »

2010 Bodegas Roda Reserva Rioja

92 points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry and cherry, with complicating notes of rose oil, pipe tobacco and vanilla. Spicy oak nuances emerge with air and carry onto the palate, which displays sappy dark fruit liqueur flavors and hints of mocha and floral pastilles. The expansive, focused, long finish leaves vanilla and spicecake notes behind. The malo occurred in large French oak casks and the wine was then aged in French oak barriques, 40% of them new, for 14 months. (JR)" (11/2015) K&L Notes: Located in the famed barrio de estaciones, Roda is the relativ... Read More »

Lustau Almacenista Oloroso "Pata de Gallina" (500ml)

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Juan García Jarana, the motorcycle magnate of Jerez, sells a portion of his soleras to Lustau for this delicate Oloroso. It starts with notes of candied almonds, coconut palm syrup and caramel. The hint of salinity lends complexity and freshness, without diminishing that delicate, pleasing sweetness." (6/2009) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Just add this oloroso to the growing list of excellent Sherries from Lustau. This one is tellingly nutty on the nose, thus the hazelnut and walnut flavors are expected as they become part of a bigger painting that includes coffee, bitter chocolate an ...Read More »

2013 Descendientes de Jose Palacios "Petalos" Bierzo

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of ripe berries such as blueberry and raspberry with slate and stone undertones. Full body plus silky and refined tannins that deliver a savory and delicious finish. Some pie crust and ripe fruit undertones too. Made from a selection of different vineyards of pure mencía. Superb value. Drink now." (7/2015) 91 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby-red. Spice-accented raspberry and candied flowers on the perfumed nose. Silky, spicy and aromatic on the palate, offering energetic but edge-free flavors of mineral-tinged red berries. Finishes silky, spicy and very long, with a rep ...Read More »

2011 Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza Rioja

91 points Vinous: "Deep red. Spicy, smoke-tinged cherry and red berry scents are complemented by suggestions of incense and vanilla. Smoky black raspberry and cherry liqueur flavors are lifted and energized by a mineral element. Sappy, incisive and fresh on the finish, firmed by supple, well-knit tannins. (JR)" (11/2015) K&L Notes: 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 pri... Read More »

2013 Clos Erasmus "Laurel" Priorat

93 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. Heady, mineral-laced aromas of candied red fruit, Indian spices and rose pastille. Juicy and incisive on the palate, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness and spiciness in the glass. Packs a powerful punch but comes off lithe and precise, with alluring sweetness and a touch of candied rose on the gently tannic finish. This suave wine was aged in a combination of French oak tanks, barrels and clay amphoras for 18 months. (JR)" (1/2016)

Valdespino "Tio Diego" Amontillado Jerez

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Extremely dry, this austere Amontillado comes from the white chalky albariza soils of the famed Macharnudo vineyard. It aged under flor for about eight years, and then spent eight more years aging oxidatively before being bottled. At first, it shows only the classic flavors of iodine and salt, with enchanting sea breeze notes. You have to wait for the fruit flavors to emerge, notes of roasted white fruit and nuts emerging in the midst of its cool flavors. Only for fans of super-dry Sherry, this is ideal for mojama, cured tuna belly." (10/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Tio D ...Read More »

El Maestro Sierra Fino Jerez de la Frontera (375ml)

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Gently floral, with hints of iodine and pepper, this is a subtle and delicate Fino. The acidity keeps up the tension while the texture feels soft. Give it time in the glass and spicy scents emerge, along with an intriguing fruitiness." (10/2013) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The non-vintage Fino offers up aromas and flavors of sea salt and roasted nuts. It is excellent as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to sushi. (JM)" (2/2007) Jancis Robinson: "Quite subtle and light. Delicate but not thin - tangy and bright, in fact." (9/2012) K&L Notes: El Maestro Sierra is a terrific boutique sherry bodega in Jerez de la Fronte... Read More »

2011 Finca Villacreces Ribera Del Duero

94 points Decanter: "This wine could also be in my 12 greatest Riberas. Delicious, complex, finely sewn, open. Top quality, and at a bargain price. (PBT)" (1/2016) 92 points Vinous: "Opaque purple. Exotic aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, cherry-vanilla, licorice and peppery spices. Plush and open-knit, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit flavors and hints of candied flowers and spicecake. Supple tannins build with air and add shape to a very long, supple finish that leaves cassis and mocha notes behind. This suave wine has the depth to age but drinks very easily now; it was aged for ...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 »

Gonzalez Byass "Viña AB" Amontillado

93 points Wine & Spirits: "This is the youngest Amontillado from Gonzalez Byass, with four years of aging under flor and another four years in oxidative aging. True to form, it is a delightful wine, graceful and elegant in its fine balance between acidity, minerality and a soft, almost delicate body. It takes on surprising force with air, a sense of limestone in scent and flavor that propels the wine toward something rich, like grilled sea bass." (10/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A dry version, with good tension to the walnut, singed orange peel and cardamom flavors. Offers a focused, salty finish. (JM) ...Read More »
