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...

2009 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2009 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja

As is the case with so many other great spots in Spain, Bodega Casa Juan is located opposite the village church, in the beautiful walled pueblo of Laguardia. The winery is a converted flour mill, featuring concrete tanks for fermenting and blending the wine, and for ageing, barrels that are used for up to seven years. These are traditional Riojas in elaboration and spirit, though the site specificity of their Laguardia and Villabuena vineyards confers a fruit character all its own to these wines. And what fruit! Especially in the great 2009 vintage, the ... Read More »

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.

2013 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

In the region of Cariñena, the Garnacha grape variety seems to find a lovely expression, one which is less high octane and lighter on its feet than in some of the neighboring regions. And, as ever, this is a terrific red wine bargain for anyone looking for an inexpensive house red or wine for any party, wedding, or other event.

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 »

2013 Joan d'Anguera "Altaroses" Montsant

The wines made by brothers Joan and Josep d'Anguera have changed dramatically in the past three years. Altaroses is relatively younger vine Garnacha, farmed organically (and in fact, Demeter certified biodynamic), and picked relatively early. Trodden by foot periodically for a few days, fermented with its own yeast, and allowed to age in old barrels, there is a delicacy, purity and freshness to this wine that makes it so drinkable. A perfect window into the style here. Another indicator of the rising quality at Joan d'Anguera: we had a 2013 Finca l'Argat... Read More »

2009 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Crianza Rioja (1.5L)

Lesmos is back, and now in magnums, the ideal size for parties and for extended aging in your cellar! All estate fruit, hand harvested, and carefully vinified with native yeasts, this is a hand sewn wine with the purity, texture and elegance to prove it. Produced from 85% Tempranillo and 15% Mazuelo, the wine shows a rather Burgundian nose of cherries and plums, opening to reveal a hint of sandalwood that leads to a wonderful palate that opens with tangy cherry flavors that are persistent and presented on an elegantly textured frame. Terrific acidity an... 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 »

2011 Finca Sobreño Tempranillo Toro

Finca Sobreño has long been a leading producer of great value reds from Toro, and we are excited to have it back in stock. As with other wines from this D.O., tinto del pais (the region's local clone of Tempranillo) is the grape variety, and it shows lots of brooding dark fruit, a typically Castillian, scorched earth, meaty savor, and robust tannin from both grapes and wood. This is not a timid wine! Serve with braised ox tail and fries, or perhaps with a platter of nicely aged, firm sheep's milk cheese and chorizo, the smokier the better! (Joe Manekin, ...

2012 Cara Nord Red Blend Conca de Barberà

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red 2012 Conca de Barbera is a blend of 42% Grenache, 38% Syrah and 20% Garrut (this may be the first time I have seen that grape varietal). The result is an outstanding red wine displaying a dense ruby/plum/purple color, lots of kirsch liqueur intermixed with a notion of roasted herbs, medium to full body, attractive, savory, fleshy flavors and a long finish. Drink it over the next several years. The Conca de Barbera appellation is northeast of Priorat and Montsant, and west of Penedes. (RP)" (11/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright violet color. Blackcurrant and cherry skin ...Read More »

2012 Suertes del Marqués "7 Fuentes" Valle de Orotava (Tenerife)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid red. Asian spice-accented red berries and white pepper on the nose. Juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are underscored by a zesty mineral quality. Fat-free and focused, with excellent finishing clarity and subtle tannic grip. There's a Pinot-like delicacy and nerviness to this wine that I find really interesting." (9/2013) K&L Notes: Produced from a blend of primarily Listan Negro and a touch of Tintilla, this wine is fermented and aged in the currently very fashionable combo of concrete as well as 500 liter barrels. This Canary island red wine shows del... 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)"

2012 Losada "Pajaro Rojo" Mencía Bierzo

91 points Wine & Spirits: "As meaty as a southern Rhône red, this mencía is black, ample and soft. A delicious wine and a beautiful snapshot of the variety as it grows in Bierzo, this comes from vines between 30 and 40 years old." (10/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pajaro Rojo is pure Mencia from purchased fruit from 40-year-old vines whose malolactic fermentation was carried out in used barrels. They are reproducing the local family wines of yesteryear, keeping some 10% of the grapes uncrushed. It shows some reductive notes when uncorked, and then slowly reveals some tobacco and licorice notes. Th ...Read More »
