1999 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
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. Drink now-2018. (NM)" (8/2012) K&L Notes: Wow--this is spectacular Gran Reserva! Made in a traditional style with earthy red fruit aromas, and in this relatively cooler, damper vintage, a slightly Burgundian profile. The wine features good acidity, minerality, and...

2005 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2005 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cropped from a vintage deemed almost perfect, the 2005 Viña Ardanza Reserva follows the same varietal mix found in the last vintages; 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. 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. In the case of the 2005, it was racked six times during its elevage. The one bottle I tasted first was a bit evolved with plenty of cigar ash, incense and leather along with hung game (woodcock came to mind). But the palate was ...Read More »

2010 Bodegas Puelles Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2010 Bodegas Puelles Crianza Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Crianza is produced with 100% destemmed Tempranillo grapes fermented in inox and aged for one year in barriques (50% French, 50% American) is a little closed in the nose, seems like a serious wine, with a mix of red and black fruit and the wood well-integrated in the wine. Round in the palate, with clean flavors, supple, balanced, very Rioja. It grows on you as it also improves with air and gets more focused. 30,000 bottles were produced. A great value Crianza to buy by the case! Drink 2014-2018." (8/2012) K&L Notes: A K&L Direct Import! Jesús Puelles is one... Read More »

A custom cuvee that is only available through importer Eric Solomon, this amazing red wine displays notes of lead pencil shavings, acacia flowers, black raspberries, blueberries and black currants. This full-bodied, intense 2012 tastes like it should cost three to five times as much. Full-bodied, stunningly pure and textured, it should last for 4-5 years, possibly longer. The ...Read More »

2012 Clos Mogador Priorat (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Clos Mogador is nothing short of spectacular. They started in 1999 with some Cariñena, and they gradually increased the Garnacha and reduced the Cabernet. 2012 is possibly the vintage of Mogador with less Cabernet, as it didn't behave well in such warm year. René Barbier senior tells me it reminds him of the freshness of the 2000 that he generously uncorked for me to compare; they only have a handful of bottles for the old vintages! The nose of this 2012 is still little reticent but not reduced like many vintages in the past, slowly showing a gr ...Read More »

Aged three months in French oak, it showcases the brilliant quality of the Mourvèdre grape from this sunny appellation.

The Grenache comes from 70-year-old vines, and the Syrah from 30-year-old vines. It is difficult to find a better value than this incredibly rich effort.

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.

This full-bodied beauty boasts a deep ruby color as well as loads of strawberry and black cherry fruit, hints of lavender and crushed rocks, sweet tannin, and a broad, savory mouthfeel.

The light to medium-bodied palate shows fully resolved tannins, great acidity and pure, pungent flavors that linger in the mouth forever and that can only be Rioja. This is a wine to smell over and over again.

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 reveals abundant kirsch, lavender, black raspberry and dusty, loamy, earthy scents intermixed with notions of spring flowers and blackberries. There is not any oak evident in this dense effort.

2006 Bodegas Muga "Prado Enea" Gran Reserva Rioja

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.

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 »

2009 Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Senorio de P. Pecina Crianza feels much older and has the profile of old-time traditional Rioja, with notes of tobacco, leather, camphor, raw meat, incense and a core of macerated cherries. The medium-bodied palate shows great acidity (especially for a warm vintage), clean flavors and enough persistence. Highly recommended for fans of old-time Rioja at a great price. (LG)" (12/2013) K&L Notes: Along with the likes of Lopez de Heredia, La Rioja Alta, and some others, Señorío de P. Peciña is one of the standard bearers for traditionally styled Rioja. With a ve...

2006 Miguel Merino Reserva Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Reserva is a great modern traditional Rioja that reminds me of the style of wines like Valenciso, with balsamic aromas of incense, cigar box, leather and tar intermixed with subtle notes of blackberries and blueberries. The palate displays polished tannins, lively fruit and good balance. Drink 2014-2017. (LG)" (12/2013) K&L Notes: A longtime participant in the wine business, Miguel sold wine for wine distributors in the States as well as worked as an export manager. Miguel found success every step of the way, and then decided that rather than retire, he want... Read More »

Cardenal Mendoza Solera Spanish Brandy 750ml

90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "No wallflower, this one. The intensity of the bouquet starts right with the pour as waves of prunes and raisins rise from the glass; air contact stirs deeper aromas, most notably orange rind, peppermint and roasted nuts. This rich, heavyweight brandy features layers of flavor, including cocoa, toffee, caramel, cream Sherry and oaky vanilla. Finishes as large and robust as it started." (12/2002) K&L Notes: There is no better way to spend a winter evening than sipping on a nice glass of brandy. Cardinal Mendoza Brandy is produced in Jérez, Spain. Founded in 1781, Cardi...

2009 Viña Real Reserva Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Reserva, 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano from Rioja Alavesa, is fermented in stainless steel and aged for 22 months in new oak barriques with frequent rackings (every four months). 2009 is a powerful vintage with an early harvest, especially in Alavesa, but the wine has very good balance and is developing some complexity in the nose with a touch of spices, raw meat and red fruit. The palate displays some fine-grained tannins, ripe fruit and good acidity in a well-built wine. This should age very well. Drink 2016-2022. (LG) ...Read More »

2004 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Bosconia" Reserva Rioja

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Vina Bosconia Reserva is a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho and the remaining 5% Mazuelo and Graciano aged for five years in used barrels, racked twice per year and fined with egg whites before being bottled unfiltered. Dark ruby-colored, with notes of beef blood, iron, antique shop, incense, blood orange and a touch of volatile acidity, the palate is very fresh, with good concentration, clear flavors and enough grip and fruit to age gracefully. A perfumed and feminine great Rioja. The Bosconia vineyard wines are the only ones from Lopez d ...Read More »

2013 DePaula Monastrell Jumilla

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yes, this is the Ponce from Manchuela, but last year they started producing a Monastrell from Jumilla that was named after Juan Antonio´s young daughter. So this time I tasted the 2013 Depaula that was produced with grapes purchased from Casa Castillo then fermented, raised and bottled. Contrary to what he does in his winery in Manchuela, here the grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel vats and then as in the mother winery, the wine matured in used 600-liter oak barrels. It is a Monastrell with personality that sticks out like a sore thum ...Read More »

Hidalgo "Napoleon" Amontillado Sanlucar de Barrameda (500ml)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium amber, nutty Napoleon Amontillado is a dry style sherry, also a fine aperitif." (2/2007) Wine & Spirits: "Subtle in its salinity while generous in its nutty flavors, this approachable Amontillado ends on light caramel flavors. For an aperitif with aged goat cheese." (6/2011) K&L Notes: What a terrific Amontillado! Gently toasted nut and candied citrus aromas lead to a subtle, elegant, nutty palate. While the salty, flor qualities are not cranking on all cylinders here, there is an elegance, softness, and long finishing character to this amontillado that makes it one of the ... 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 »

2008 Bodegas LAN Reserva Rioja

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Reserva shows good concentration and fresh aromas of an Atlantic vintage, with quite a traditional profile displaying notes of red fruit, spices, leather and dill, and a medium-bodied palate with intense and clean flavors and a supple finish. This great Reserva wears an attractive price tag. (LG)" (12/2013) Wine Spectator: "The black cherry and plum flavors have a hard-candy character in this polished red, backed by sweet-tart acidity and supported by light, firm tannins. Lively, with a balsamic finish. (Web Only—2014)"

2013 Antonio Sanz Verdejo Rueda

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright straw. Perfumed scents of honeysuckle, tangerine, pear and quinine, with a zesty mineral overtone. Tangy citrus fruit flavors are complemented by deeper notes of sweet butter and anise, putting on weight with air. Racy, tightly focused white wine with zesty mineral cut and lingering spiciness." (9/2014) K&L Notes: The Sanz family has long been a leader in the Castilla y Leon, white wine focused D.O. of Rueda. Aromas of fresh apples and melons lead to a tasty palate of fresh fruits. This verdejo is clean, bracing and with a firm mineral backbone as well. It hit... Read More »

2012 Vila Viniteca "El Hombre Bala" Mentrida Top Pick!
2012 Vila Viniteca "El Hombre Bala" Mentrida

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 El Hombre Bala is pure Garnacha from different vineyards in Cadalso de los Vidrios from purchased grapes. If you know previous vintages of this wine, this 2012 has a lot less oak and extraction. Also this ruby-colored red is sporting a fresher, more precise nose dominated by wild red berries and hints of spices and herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with perfectly integrated oak, unnoticeable in fact, and very good balance and freshness before ending with the taste of cherries in liqueur. It's quite hedonistic and lush. Uvas Felices belongs to ...Read More »

Lustau "San Emilio Solera Reserva" Pedro Ximénez Jerez

92 points Wine & Spirits: "The exuberant and saturated sweet flavors of sun-ripened grapes spread throughout the entire palate, sustained by firm acidity. That acidity imposes its mineral tones, without overshadowing the seductive caramel sensation that lasts. Serve it chilled as a digestif." (6/2011)91 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers the weight you expect from a PX, but with fresher cut. The singed walnut, brown bread, ginger, ganache and Turkish coffee notes are allied to a mouthwatering spearmint and treacle spine. Features good energy through the finish to match the mouthcoating feel. Drink now. ...Read More »

2013 Bernabeleva "Camino de Navaherreros" Garnacha Vinos de Madrid

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Smoky, spice-accented raspberry and cherry on the perfumed nose, with a bright floral accent building with air. Brisk and racy, offering fresh red fruit and rose pastille flavors and a hint of blood orange. I might have guessed this to be pinot. Finishes taut and clean, with a lingering redcurrant note and lacy tannins sneaking in slowly." (9/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Camino de Navaherreros is produced with Garnacha and some bought grapes and a dash of Tempranillo that they have in one of their vineyards from granite soils at 700- to 800-meter altitudes c ...Read More »
