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 »

2013 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra Terra Alta Top Pick!
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."

1999 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Gran Reserva has an enticing red cherry, soy and cedar-scented bouquet that is reminiscent of an old Burgundy. The palate is very well-balanced with fine acidity and edgy tannin. There are notes of fresh red cherries and orange rind interlaced by leather on the tart, highly enjoyable, zesty finish.

Aged in both tank and French oak, it comes from 60-80-year-old vines planted in limestone soils at a relatively high elevation of over 1,600 feet.

A blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha and the remaining 10% Mazuelo and Graciano aged for a long time in oak and bottled before release. This is a practice quite common from yesteryear, but that is a true rarity today.

An amazing value, this wine boasts a dense blue/purple color as well as a sumptuous nose of blueberries, blackberries, scorched earth, licorice and forest floor.

2007 Bodegas Puelles Rioja Reserva

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Reserva showed a strong reduction when uncorked and should benefit from decanting in advance. Pure Tempranillo, it matured in barrels for 20 months. The nose, after the reduction has blown off, is quite classical but clean showing roasted aromas and hints of dark spices, balsam and perhaps leather. The palate is quite lively, with good, refreshing acidity and fully resolved tannins. 14,000 bottles." (4/2015) K&L Notes: Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja.

It is a powerful, full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal red boasting a dense purple color, and a sweet blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, lavender, licorice and earth notes intermixed with a touch of new oak.

A selection made by proprietor Rafael De Haan and Eric Solomon, the outstanding 2011 Rioja Tradicion exhibits classic Rioja characteristics of black cherry jam, lead pencil shavings, licorice and tobacco leaf.

The grapes are always sourced from the same vineyards, 30-year-old Tempranillo from Fuenmayor and Cenicero in Rioja Alta and Garnacha from Tudelilla in Rioja Baja.

2010 Cune Crianza Rioja

The palate is velvety, really easy to drink, with clean flavors and good persistence. I liked it better than the 2011. It's superb for its price tag!

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 »

2011 Mas Oller "Pur" Empordà

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fashioned from an interesting blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged three months in French oak, the opaque purple-colored 2011 Pur displays notes of salty sea breezes, wet rocks, intense blueberry and black raspberry fruit, and hints of roasted meats and bouquet garni. This superb effort comes from relatively young vines planted just above sea level. (RP)" (11/2013)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "50% syrah, 30% garnacha and 20% cabernet sauvignon; aged for three months in French oak): Inky purple.

2006 La Rioja Alta "Viña Arana" Reserva Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Viña Arana Reserva is a blend of Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo (aka Cariñena) fermented with natural yeasts and had a slow malolactic fermentation of 56 days after which the wine was put in barrel in July 2007 where they matured for three years being racked every six months before they were bottled in December 2010. It feels like a ripe red, with notes of forest floor, dark cherries, spices and hints of leather, hung game, smoke and toasted notes. The palate is lush, and polished, with a velvety texture and moderate acidity. It is ready to be enjo ...Read More »

2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja (1.5L)

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: Lesmos is back, and now in magnums, the ideal size for parties and for extended aging in your cellar! 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 unt... Read More »

2008 Bodegas Olarra "Cerro Añon" Reserva Rioja

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Ripe cherry, dark berries and vanilla on the perfumed nose. Smooth and accessible, offering sweet cherry-vanilla and coconut flavors and a hint of mocha. Fine-grained tannins come on late, adding shape to the long, smooth, appealingly sweet finish. Shows little of the tangy edge that I associate with so many wines from this vintage." (9/2013) K&L Notes: Based in Logroño, Bodegas Olarra is not a new bodega on the block, having produced wines for over 40 years now. In fact, we have been luck enough to try several much older vintages of these wines, both ... Read More »

2013 Do Ferreiro "Cepas Vellas" Albariño Rias Baixas

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A true icon of Rías Baixas, the 2013 Albariño Do Ferreiro Cepas Vellas is pure Albariño from probably the oldest vineyards in the zone, in Spain and in the whole world, as they might be close to being 200 years old! The vines look more like trees because they are trained in the pergola style as is the norm in the region. As all his wines were fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and aged in contact with the lees for 11 months before being bottled. This wine is produced from a plot of extremely old vines that are planted next to his house a ...Read More »

2013 Morgadío Albariño Rias Baixas

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Fresh orange, quince, honeysuckle and anise on the nose, with a vibrant mineral overtone. Bitter lemon and pear skin flavors are complicated by a gingery element, with tangy minerality adding lift. Gains x000D weight on the incisive finish while maintaining vivacity and focus, leaving a chalky mineral note behind." (9/2014) Wine Spectator: "The silky texture carries pear, melon and light vanilla flavors in this gentle white, with just enough acidity for structure. (Web-2014)"

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 »

2010 Agusti Torello Mata Cava Brut Reserva Penedes

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Agusti Torello Mata Brut Reserva is a blend of classic Cava varieties including 44% Macabeu from 41-year-old vines. It has impressive intensity on the nose with fine yeast and bread aromas with crisp delineation. The palate is packed full of strawberry and Morello fruit on the entry that is counterbalanced by the fine thread of acidity. It finishes in style with a flourish of green apple and a hint of buttered toast. This is a very satisfying Brut Reserva. Drink now-2016. Although Agusti Torello was founded in 1950, this estate sold its Cava t ...Read More »

La Guita Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda (375ml)

Offers plenty of fruit, but remains grounded thanks to the briny character. Expressive and balanced. Drink now." (11/2012)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV La Guita Manzanilla has always had a very strong and marked character of brine, green olives and mustard seeds, with an overall sweet sensation. The medium-bodied palate is precise, very dry and intense, with some brine and rancio flavors and great length. The quality of this wine has increased notably in th ...Read More »

2006 Bodegas Olarra "Cerro Añon" Gran Reserva Rioja

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(mostly tempranillo, with garnacha, mazuelo and graciano): Ruby-red. Red berry and dried cherry aromas overlaid by a coating of vanillin oak. Sappy and sweet, offering cherry-vanilla and mocha flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Smooth, open-knit and ready to drink, finishing with repeating vanilla and cherry notes and very good persistence. My score will look high to the oak-averse, but fans of old-school Rioja Gran Reservas should dig it."

2010 Benjamin Romeo Rioja Predicador Red Top Pick!
2010 Benjamin Romeo Rioja Predicador Red

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Predicador is a blend of 93% Tempranillo and 7% Garnacha cropped between October 7 and 14. The nose was suffering some bottle shock, but it certainly demonstrates intense floral aromas coupled with vibrant cassis fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine, structured tannins that, even at this premature juncture, are obvious. Taut, tense, and supremely well-focused, this should turn out to be a superb wine when it is released later this year. Drink 2015-2022."

Valdespino "Tio Diego" Amontillado Jerez

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Tio Diego Amontillado Palomino from the Macharnudo vineyard, is fermented in botas, aged biologically for 10 years under flor in a solera separated from Inocente, and with a further five years of oxidative aging. It has a beautiful, perfumed nose of dry flowers, very elegant and clean, subtle, with some saline notes, both in the nose and the palate, where it is balanced, medium-bodied and elegant. A very fine Amontillado, showing superb value for a 15-year-old wine. Drink 2013-2019." (8/2013)92 points Wine & Spirits: "Notes of limestone and salt frame the center of this Amon ...Read More »
