2012 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
95 points James Suckling: "Traditional and beautiful in character with plum, balsamic, orange-peel and leather aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with creamy texture and a long, intense aftertaste." (10/2020) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Garnacha is an important component in the 2012 Viña Ardanza Reserva, where it represents 20% of the blend (the rest is, of course, Tempranillo). 2011 was a difficult vintage for Garnacha, so Viña Ardanza was not produced that year and they jumped from 2010, which had the mention "Selección Espe...

2011 Beronia Gran Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
93 points Decanter: "A very juicy, fruity Rioja: plump with plums and vanilla cream, softened by some tertiary character. Notes of oak lurk underneath. Long finish, a little spicy, with supple tannins. No wonder it’s a popular classic. Not built for the long haul in a dark cellar. (SJE)" (08/2020) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This maturing red retains freshness, with a plump texture and lively flavors. Currant, cocoa, licorice and loamy earth notes are supported by gentle tannins and orange peel acidity. Gentle, yet deep and focused. Not showy, but compl...

2012 Bodegas Riojanas "Monte Real" Gran Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
93 points Wine Spectator: "This polished red shows focus and depth. Cherry and currant flavors are balanced by sanguine, mineral and anise notes. Firm, well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity provide a balanced structure. Expressive and elegant. (TM)" (10/2020) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Balsamic berry fruit aromas are appropriate for a warm year like 2012. This is bullish and tannic, and definitely riper than most vintages of Monte Real gran reserva. Plum and prune flavors stay giant on a tannic finish. (MS)" (10/2020) K&L Notes: Bodegas Rioja...

2016 Remelluri "Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida" Rioja
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "A tightly wound red with deep, dark fruit with lots of chocolate and spice. Medium-to full-bodied with lovely density and nature. Fine, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Subtle and real." (11/2020) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida, from a high-yielding year, matured in a combination of barriques of different origins and aged for 13 months. It has contained ripeness, integrated alcohol, nice balance and a nice expression on the nose. It shows more restraint than t...

2014 Miguel Merino Gran Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like the Reserva, the 2014 Gran Reserva also shows brilliantly, complex, nuanced, polished and elegant, showing the essence of traditional Rioja in a clean and expressive way. They selected grapes from old vines (planted between 1918 and 1960) that fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in new French oak barrels. The wine has absorbed most of the new oak by now and feels quite classical, perhaps a little creamier than the old-timers, with fine tannins and developed flavors. 4,821 bottles ...

2015 CVNE "Cune" Gran Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "Blackberry, bark and wet-earth aromas follow through to a medium body with firm, lightly chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish with hints of chocolate, and vanilla to the dark fruit. Tempranillo." (09/2021) 93 points Vinous: "Glistening ruby. Expansive red and blue fruit, pipe tobacco, potpourri and baking spice aromas, with vanilla and smoky mineral notes slowly emerging. Sappy and gently chewy on the palate, offering spice-accented black raspberry, bitter cherry and rose pastille flavors that turn sweeter on the back h...

2014 La Rioja Alta "Viña Arana" Gran Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
96 points Decanter: "Arana commemorates one of La Rioja Alta's historic families. The Tempranillo (95%) and Graciano (5%) are aged separately in American oak barrels for three years before blending, then for three years in bottle (two years less than the 904, and six years less than the 890). The winery's keynote to this Rioja is 'freshness'. I agree. (SJE)" (08/2020) 96 points James Suckling: "Lots of mushroom and walnut aromas with plum and leather, too. It’s full-bodied, but very soft and creamy-textured with lots of old wood, mushroom and ripe frui...

2016 Bodegas Muga "Selección Especial" Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
96 points Wine & Spirits: "This grows at high altitudes, inhigh-density plantings on ancient terraces above the Ebro river, some of the vines dating to 1946, the youngest planted in 1986. Those alluvial soils and old vines performed remarkably well in 2016, delivering a fresh blend—Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano—with cool, silken tannins and the sort of peppery spice you might find in fresh-pressed olive oil. It’s bright and juicy, layering thyme and rosemary fragrance into the fruit complexity. A glorious young Rioja suited to aging, or to ...

96 points James Suckling: "Very ripe still, with crushed berry and light jam. Vanilla undertones to the fruit. Turns to flowers, both fresh and dried. Complex cedar, tobacco and walnut. It’s full-bodied with round, soft tannins and a flavorful finish. Richer than past vintages, but turns linear and refined at the finish. Drink now. " (09/2020) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Viña Bosconia Reserva shows the ripeness of the very warm and dry year. It's structured and concentrated, quite different from the finesse of the Tondonia. Bosco...

94 points James Suckling: "Very complex aromas of ripe berries, sultanas, cedar and hints of chocolate. Full-bodied with round, ripe tannins that are layered and fresh. A delicious combination of mature fruit and mahogany add to the complexity of the wine. Holding on really nicely." (09/2020) 93 points Decanter: "Autumnal, bonfire character here: savory, truffle, cinder toffee and dried black cherry. A classic yet rich and concentrated wine that perfectly expresses the year and region. (panel tasting)" (01/2021) 92 points Vinous: "Deep garnet. Ripe c...

94 points Wine Spectator: "This full-bodied red is generous yet structured, featuring depth and balance. Ripe flavors of plum and currant mingle with cocoa, clove and mineral notes, supported by mouthcoating tannins and balsamic acidity. Harmonious and long. Best from 2022 through 2037. 2,000 cases made, 225 cases imported. (TM)" (10/2020) 90 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Ripe black and blue fruits, licorice, candied flowers and baking spices on the nose, with a hint of espresso in the background. Velvety and broad on the palate, offering lush blackberr...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classical 2015 Viña Real Reserva is a blend of Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano from a warm and early harvest that fermented in stainless steel vats and aged in new oak barriques for 22 months with rackings every four months. I find it very expressive, aromatic and open, ripe and hedonistic but without excess. It has the soft and approachable profile of the Alavesa wines but with the grip of the fine-grained, chalky tannins. It's gentle but has clout. Delicious! 340,000 bottles produced. I ...

97 points James Suckling: "This is so powerful and tightly wound with so much intensity and power. Full body. Crushed berries and hints of walnuts and cedar. Purity in fruit. Very subtle character, but great tension and richness." (07/2019) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "94+ points "The renewed classical red 2016 Reserva was produced as a blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo. It fermented in small stainless steel and concrete vats and matured in 225-liter French (80%) and American (20%) oak barrels for 18 months. It has a ve...

2017 Bodegas Muga Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "Lovely, succulent red with juicy berries and plums, together with some chocolate, spice, walnut and cedar. It’s medium-bodied with round tannins and a flavorful finish. Touch of dried fruit in the center palate. A pretty combination of savory and fresh-fruit character. Some orange peel as well. A baby Prado Enea. Drink now." (10/2020) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red 2017 Reserva, which is sold as Crianza in Spain, is their most popular wine, representing half of the total production of the firm. As is the no...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The very classical 2016 Torre Albéniz Reserva is generously oaked, ripe without excess and with the freshness from 2016. It was produced with organic and biodynamic Tempranillo from their older vineyards, with 5% of other grapes (including whites). It has 15% alcohol and was in barrel for 25 months without racking. It should develop nicely in bottle. 41,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2018. (LG)" (06/2021)

97 points Decanter: "DWWA "The bouquet is full of fragrant black fruits, cinnamon, cumin and Frankincense, the palate beautifully fleshy and textured, carrying cigar box, vanilla, blueberry and silky tannins through to a lingering, richly-fruited, finish. Such refined elegance! Outstanding."" (07/2021)

2014 Remelluri Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of dried flowers, ripe berries and tobacco continue to the palate that is medium-to full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Classic style. Better with a little more bottle age, but already very pretty." (09/2020) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate red 2014 Reserva was produced with the grapes from a challenging year with abundant rain and high temperatures in September. They started picking the 11th of October and had to rush and do a severe selection of grapes. It fermented in sm...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Lanzaga comes from a harvest marked by the killer frost (-5 degrees Celsius) of April 27th and 28th, but the higher-altitude vines from the village of Lanciego escaped the disaster. This is a blend from their 15 to 20 hectares of organically farmed vines, all head-pruned on slopes rich in clay and limestone, mixing red and white soils, places with more sandstone, others with more marl, looking for complexity. It fermented in 6,000-liter concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in 1,500- and 2,500...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I tasted two vintages of the entry-level red, of which the young 2018 Pícaro del Águila Tinto had just been bottled and should be released soon. This is their most approachable red, and it has the depth, concentration and nuance of the best wines from many wineries. It's produced in a more jovial style, but the wine comes from old vines that always have a field blend with small percentages of whatever grapes that are all fermented together, and these vines always produce a serious and deep wine. In 2018, it matur...
