2012 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2012 Finca Villacreces "Pruno" Ribera del Duero

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from a vineyard situated adjacent to one of the famous vineyards utilized to produce Spain’s greatest red wine, Vega Sicilia. Made from relatively old vines, the 2012 Pruno is a sexy, opulent, voluptuously textured effort that spent 12 months in two-year-old French oak barrels. Reminiscent of a baby Vega Sicilia, it possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as notes of high-class, unsmoked cigar tobacco, creme de cassis, licorice, graphite and spice box. Full-bodied, deep, velvety texture ...Read More »

2010 Lambuena Crianza Ribera del Duero (Previously $20)

Located in the town of Roa, which is part of the Burgos district, Lambuena is a producer of D.O. Ribera del Duero wines and is one of our newest Spanish direct imports. Ideally situated in the central growing region of the Ribera del Duero, in an area known for the very high quality of its chalky clay soils and its extreme continental climate, Lambuena makes big, generously fruited, yet structured and ultimately classic Ribera del Duero wines (these days, this is very difficult to find in this D.O.) Though the wines consist primarily of Tempranillo ("tin... Read More »

2009 Valderiz Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2009 Valderiz Ribera del Duero

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The fabulous 2009 Valderiz comes from 30- to70-year-old vines and is blended with 5% Albillo before aged for 20 months in mainly French oak (50% new). Again, one is impressed by both the precision and clarity on the nose, the vibrant effervescent red berry fruit being allowed to express itself. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, fleshy tannins. There is fine grip here and lovely touches of orange zest and a little balsamic on the elegant finish. This is a top-notch wine that should age with style. Drink 2013-2020. I was very impressed by the win ...Read More »

2011 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Crianza Tinto Ribera del Duero

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby. Fresh cherry, dark berries and vanilla on the highly perfumed nose, with a hint of woodsmoke building in the glass. Sappy and nicely focused, offering zesty bitter cherry and blackberry flavors underscored by a mineral element. Becomes fleshier and sweeter on the clinging finish, which features supple tannins and a touch of smoked meat." (9/2014) K&L Notes: Alejandro Fernandez is rightfully a Spanish icon, having been one of the early pioneers in the Ribera del Duero D.O. He is a champion of the local Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grape variety, and has pr... Read More »

2010 Pago de los Capellanes Crianza Ribera del Duero

Composed primarily of Tempranillo from Pedrosa de Duero (about 4 km from Roa), and then aged in all French oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 one year-old, 1/3 two year-old), this Ribera shows spicy dark cherry fruit aromas, leading to a fresh palate of black cherry fruit, with admirable intensity tempered by freshness as well as evident minerality. While this is tasty and approachable now, it is serious enough to age a while in your cellar. If you choose to enjoy now then decant it and pair with a plateful of lamb chops! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

2012 Dominio de Pingus "Flor de Pingus" Ribera del Duero

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Flor de Pingus is produced with the fruit from 16 plots of vineyards in La Horra (Burgos) which are vinified by plot in small, 4,000-liter stainless steel vats mostly with indigenous yeasts. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in barrels (50% new, 50% second-use) where the wine aged for 16-18 months. It-s again an austere closed red, with a shy nose that needs pulling. What you get is very harmonious and elegant, no exuberance here, but classical proportions, perfectly integrated oak and superb balance. A very worthy version of Flor, a wine ...Read More »

2009 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Valbuena was harvested early, the result of a warm summer. It’s mostly Tempranillo complemented with 5% Merlot. The wine matured for five months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 16 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), four months in used barrels and then four more months in the vats before being bottled in May 2011. 180,000 bottles produced. It has some reductive notes and would benefit from some time in a decanter, where you’d start appreciating its background of cherries which feels very classical and serious. The palate is ...Read More »

2004 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2004 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Editors’ Choice * Lightly baked and hinting at raisin and fine herbs, the bouquet on this benchmark Spanish red enfolds aromas of tobacco, moss and ripe tomato. In the mouth, it’s elegant and silky but also full and expansive. Flavors of baked berry fruits, baking spices, herbs and cocoa finish with a light coating of toast. This is an amazingly complete, exemplary wine that’s just entering its prime. If past vintages of Unico are an indication, it will age well through 2035." (5/2015)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pablo Alvarez described 2004 as a textbook vintage with perfect tempe ...Read More »

2004 Mauro VdT de Castilla y Leon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004, from what appears to be a great vintage, is opaque purple in appearance. It emits scintillating aromas of smoke, toast, herbs, kirsch, and black fruits. It is a full-bodied, large-scaled effort with oodles of fruit and enough structure to age effortlessly for 6-8 years and drink well for a decade thereafter." (02/07)

2003 Bodegas Mauro Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y Leon

91 points Wine Spectator: "Austere, yet hinting at depth and complexity, this compact, powerful, balanced red teases with plum, mineral, floral and toasty flavors and promises more pleasure to come. Not showy, but all is harmonious and well-integrated." (11/2005)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Smoky, ripe aromas of cherry liqueur, blackberry and tobacco are just this side of roasted. Lush and fleshy, the dark fruit flavors showing an exotic spice quality, with notes of floral oil and incense. Fleshy, broad and long on the finish, the supple tannins giving focus to the ripe cherry, candied plum and cured ...Read More »

2005 Mauro VdT de Castilla y Leon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Mauro is made up of 97% Tempranillo and 3% Syrah. Opaque purple-colored, it reveals a brooding but enticing bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, tar, and assorted black fruits. This leads to a layered, plush, mouth-filling, sweetly fruited wine with tons of flavor. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and its finish is long and pure. It can be enjoyed now but will continue to provide pleasure through 2025." (02/08) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Seductively p... Read More »

2002 Mauro VdT de Castilla y Leon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple-hued 2002 Crianza exhibits luscious notes of melted licorice, cherries, dried herbs, earth, and a hint of wood. (RP)" (6/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "right ruby-red. Superripe aromas of black cherry, boysenberry, and musky roasted herbs. Then silky and quite suave in the mouth, with good definition to its sweet black fruit, game and floral flavors. Offers a fine-grained texture and healthy ripe acidity. Finishes broad for the year, with very good length and rich, slightly dry tannins. A 2002 with no hole in the middle. (ST)" (9/2005) Wine Spectator: "Rich, international-style ...Read More »

2003 Aalto "Pagos Seleccionados" Ribera del Duero Spain

94 points Wine Spectator: "Hard to resist this lush, modern red, with its mouthwatering blackberry and boysenberry fruit and lavish toasty vanilla oak. But has plenty of structure, with ripe tannins and fresh acidity, so give it time to develop. Drink now through 2015." (12/06) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Aalto PS is purple/black with an unusually expressive nose for this hot vintage. It reveals smoke, toast, vanilla spice, blueberry, and blackberry jam. This is followed by a fleshy wine with excellent depth and full-body. It does... Read More »
