2015 Bodegas Volver "Tarima Hill - Old Vines" Monastrell Alicante Top Pick!
2015 Bodegas Volver "Tarima Hill - Old Vines" Monastrell Alicante

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From old vines and aged 14-16 months in French oak, the 2015 Tarima Hill sports an inky color as well as a smoking bouquet of black raspberries, blueberries, pepper, and dried flowers. It's broad, expansive, and sweetly fruited, with a great mid-palate and sweet tannin. It's a sexy fruit bomb done with class!" 92 points Wine Spectator: "This red shows grace and depth. Black cherry, plum, mineral and smoke flavors mingle harmoniously over well-integrated tannins, while lively acidity keeps this focused. Not showy, but all the pieces fit together. Balanced, in the modern style. Monast ...Read More »

2016 Bodegas Lanzaga (Telmo Rodriguez) "LZ" Rioja Top Pick!
2016 Bodegas Lanzaga (Telmo Rodriguez) "LZ" Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The unoaked red 2016 LZ is produced with a blend of head-pruned Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano from the village of Lanciego. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats for 15 days and matured in tank for four to six months. This is super expressive, from an unusual year that delivered quality and quantity, a rare combination. It's a superb, characterful, approachable Rioja with a completely different profile, fruit-driven with notes of licorice and an absence of wood, more in the style of a wine from Marcel Lapierre than what most people ex ...Read More »

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. (LG)" (4/2015) K&L Notes: A K&L Direct Import! Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja. Hailing from a long line ... Read More »

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.

2008 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja

95 points Decanter: "The best classic style of Grenache and Tempranillo pulling together joyful fruit expression and serious depth. In the mouth it is amazingly complex and so unique. 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 Laventura "Lanave" Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Lanave is a new 50/50 blend of Garnacha and Tempranillo, where the Garnacha from Rioja Baja should provide red fruit and the Tempranillo from Rioja Alavesa gives structure. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and two daily punch-downs of the cap. The Garnacha stayed in concrete, while the Tempranillo was transferred to 500-liter oak barrels, where it polished its tannins for 12 months. It has some lactic aromas, ripe berries and some spicy notes that get focused in a few minutes in the glass. The lactic note goes away and the wi ...Read More »

2013 Marqués de Murrieta Reserva Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red blend 2013 Rioja Reserva is mostly Tempranillo with 9% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo and 3% Garnacha, a proportion that is very similar from year to year as they want this blend to show the typicity of the Ygay estate. They blend grapes from different vineyards, soils, expositions and altitudes in search of a traditional, fine and elegant red aged in American oak barrels with more modern characteristics like fruit, mid-palate and integration of the oak. The destemmed and lightly crushed grapes fermented separately in stainless steel vats and the wine matu ...Read More »

2011 La Rioja Alta "Viña Alberdi" Reserva Rioja

Acidity carries the wine and then the tannins. Gorgeous. Drink now." (7/2017) K&L Notes: Founded in 1890, La Rioja Alta is one of the most experienced and universally respected wineries in Rioja. Viña Alberdi is La Rioja Alta's juiciest, most approachable Rioja to drink on the younger side.

2016 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)

(3/2018) K&L Notes: Our newest DI 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,... Read More »

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.

A beautiful traditional wine to get to know. Drink now." (7/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from their vineyards in the meander of the Ebro River, where they have some 100 hectares of vineyards.

(7/2017) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most classic cuvée was not produced in 2007 or 2008, so we jumped to the phenomenal 2009 Prado Enea. It was produced with grapes from cooler vineyards that enjoyed 20 extra days of slow ripening compared with warmer zones, which provided them with perfect ripeness and deep flavors.

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's a serious Tempranillo with power and ripeness keeping the freshness and balance. There are some earthy and smoky aromas too.

Ginger and briny notes give this a savory character. A muscular style." (9/2017) K&L Notes: Albarino is the perfect summer white, but its naturally crisp acidity and peachy citrus flavors make it enjoyable year-round as an aperitif or paired with a variety of foods, particularly shellfish and seafood. It hails from the Rias Baixas zone of Gallicia, on the northwest coast of Spain. Walk through any given fishing v... Read More »

It fermented in 10,000-liter stainless steel tanks with destemmed grapes and indigenous yeasts followed by malolactic fermentation and an élevage of four months in 8,000-liter oak vats. This is a lighter and approachable style of Bobal, with some chalky tannins that provide texture.

Lots of wood but this is stylish. Needs time to soften. Better in 2019." (12/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pícaro Tinto is Tempranillo with some 5% Albillo and selected from vineyards where the soils have a higher content of clay.

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.

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. (RP)" (11/2015) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 100 Wines of 2012, Editors' Choice* A rank well above most PX sweeties, with lush but fresh aromas of raisin and spice that are distinctly not syrupy or heavy.

2014 Mas Doix "Salanques" Priorat Top Pick!
2014 Mas Doix "Salanques" Priorat

98 points Decanter: "65% Garnacha, 25% Cariñena, 10% Syrah. Tasting notes: Intense, mineral nose with vivacious black cherry, wild thyme and black pepper. Dense, concentrated, lively, fruity palate of black cherries with a perfumed finish. The high alcohol is well integrated." (5/2017) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "Mostly old-vine garnacha and cariñena, this blend includes ten percent syrah off younger vines, all grown around Poboleda. It’s a youthful wine, wild in black-cherry and gooseberry flavors, spices and herbs. It feels firm, yet there’s enough room for a lovely acidity to make its way through, ref ...Read More »

2015 Laventura Tempranillo Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Laventura Tempranillo was sourced from a number of 40- to 80-year-old vineyards in Rioja Alavesa. The grapes were destemmed, fermented with natural yeasts in a concrete vat and aged in 500-liter oak barrels for 12 months. It has good fruit, contained ripeness and spicy and licorice aromas. None of the wines show any influence from oak. They show a good use of the barrels, always larger sizes to keep some fruit in wines like this. It's a great varietal example with very fine tannins and an elegant texture. (LG)" (2/2018)

2016 4 Kilos "Motor América" Mallorca

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Motor América is their "glu, glu" Callet from clay soils that give very fluid wines, fermented with indigenous yeasts, without any added sulfur and aged exclusively in clay and concrete. 2016 was a very dry year, and the wine changes with the vintage; this time it was 100% Callet (with some old vines that always have some other varieties--up to ten different ones), which only reached 11% alcohol. It has a bright note, high-toned, red rather than black, with some earthiness. It reminded me of a light red from Jura, with vibrant flavors and acidit ...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 »

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 »

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 »

2011 Viña Real Gran Reserva Rioja

95 points James Suckling: "This is very driven and structured with blackberry, stone, floral and mushroom aromas. Full body, firm and polished tannins. Finish goes on for minutes. Needs two or three years of bottle age." (7/2017) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "A selection from CVNE's vineyards in Alavesa, Viña Real is ripe and chocolate-rich in 2011. Aged in both French and American oak, the influence of the oak is prominent at the moment, but there's plenty of ripe raspberry warmth to fill it. The wine tastes like a savory version of chocolate-dipped raspberries, and it's hard to argue with its deliciousness, es ...Read More »

2011 Señorío de P. Peciña Reserva Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "All the reds are Tempranillo-based blends with some 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano, and the 2011 Señorío de P. Peciña Reserva is no exception. It was sourced from a selection of their own vineyards in the Sonsierra zone. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts without much extraction or a long maceration. The élevage lasted for 36 months and was in used American oak barrels with racking every six months. It's heady and ripe, the opposite of the 2013, with earthy and meaty aromas, hints of nuts, sweet spices and ripe fruit. The palate feels qu ...Read More »

2015 Clos Erasmus "Laurel" Priorat

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Laurel comes from the younger vines of the estate and is 80% Garnacha, 15% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in larger oak vats, concrete tanks, and amphorae, it boasts a deep purple color as well as perfumed notes of resinous herbs, blackberries, liquid violets and pepper. It’s rich, concentrated, and voluptuous, yet pure and elegant on the palate. It’s undoubtedly the finest vintage of this cuvée I’ve tasted, and the good news is that there are close to two thousand cases produced!"

2015 Comando G "La Bruja de Rozas" Garnacha

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The affordable 2015 La Bruja de Rozas, still sold as La Bruja Avería in Spain, is a blend of Garnacha grapes from different vineyards in the village of Rozas de Puerto Real, which is in the province of Madrid within the geographical zone of the Gredos Mountains. It's remarkably fresh for the vintage and is mostly from purchased grapes harvested quite early, some ten to 15 days before the average. They used a higher liquid to skin ratio pressing some grapes and had a colder fermentation trying not to extract, and they produced a very balanced, elegant and ...Read More »
