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...

97 points Decanter: ""This dark, relatively tight-knit Rioja proves that the Gran Reserva category doesn't just indicate the supremely well-aged, relaxed and reposeful style of Rioja, but can also serve to draw drinkers' attention to outstanding wines of density and tenacity which still have a way to run along their potential ageing trajectories. Look out for dark, urgent fruits here sweetened and back-lit by cunningly angled oak, with intense, deep, fresh and searching flavours in which the 10% of Graciano seems to be working overtime. A Rioja of innate...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I’ve loved this wine in the past and the 2013, a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 12 months in French oak, is stunning, simply over-delivering in so many different ways. This wine, which offers up copious quantities, of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit, licorice, graphite and meaty notes, offers fabulous aromatics, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful, pure texture and a long, heady finish with subtle oak. What’s amazing is the French oak is all two-year-old, super-...

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...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Reserva is the wine they first produced with the idea to rescue the traditional Reserva (and also Gran Reserva) wines that were almost dying in the mid-1990s. And from the vintages I have tasted, I think this 2014, though not an easy harvest, is the one that best resembles the wines from yesteryear. Yes, they used some French oak, but they kept using American barrels. It's still young, lively and a little creamy, especially when tasted next to the Gran Reserva. It has a balsamic, ashy twist, a medium bod...

96 points James Suckling: "A linear and tight white with superb lemon curd, apple, lemon and creme caramel. Full body, phenolic tension and density give this white form and beauty. Extremely long and flavorful." (12/2019) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of two vintages I tasted of the single-vineyard white, the just-bottled 2015 Capellanía was cropped from a warm and healthy year, and the wine matured in new French oak barrels for 15 months. Like it happened with the rosé, the two vintages I tasted of this white—2015 and 2014—are also ver...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The eponymous red blend 2015 Ferrer-Bobet looks for elegance and freshness as a way to express the character of the terroir. It's a blend of 55% Cariñena, 25% Garnacha, 15% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in French barriques for 12 months. The nose has tons of aromatic herbs, thyme and rosemary and even mint, coming through as aromatic and balsamic. It has a little more body than the 2016, but it's equally balanced, in a more powerful vintage. I like it as much as the 2016, even a tad more. 23,727 bottles...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The eponymous 2016 Tricó is a classic Albariño from 25- to 35-year-old vineyards on poor granite soils that give low yields. The full clusters are pressed, then the juice is let to settle before fermenting at low temperature with neutral yeasts. This stays at least one year in tank before it's bottled. These are serious and subtle wines, not exuberant or showy, with good ripeness and very high compensating acidity, but the wines don't feel acidic. This has the advantage of time and has developed further complexit...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Albariño was very expressive after some time in the glass. This is their house wine, produced with grapes from the 11 hectares and up to 164 plots they work in the Salnés up to 22 kilometers from their winery in Meaño. The wine is very elegant in 2018; it's vibrant and tasty, with the granite sapidity and the salty finish. I tasted a bottle from the end of June 2019, when the wine had had longer time sur lie, and the year in bottle does it good. 70,000 bottles produced. (LG)" (06/2020) K&L Notes: Do Fe...

So tight and focused. A classic Rioja. Need five to six years of bottle age to come around." (08/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Reserva is a blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% split between Mazuelo and Garnacha that wants to express the character of the Contino estate. It fermented in 12,000-liter stainless steel at 28 degree...

2015 Finca Allende Rioja Blanco

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Allende Blanco, mostly Viura with some Malvasía Riojana (Alarije), fermented with indigenous yeasts in new French oak barrels, where it aged with the lees and bâtonnage twice per week for seven months and a further seven months without the lees after it was racked. It has a classical oaked white Rioja nose, with some nutty undertones, spice, dried flowers and a hint of petrol. The palate has focused, intense flavors, and the oak is nicely integrated. 36,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2017....

(07/2019) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship red 2013 Reserva, the wine most people call simply Remelluri, was cropped from a cool, wet, challenging year, and it has a little less alcohol and higher acidity than the previous harvest. It had an élevage of 20 months in oak barriques. It has an herbal twist reflecting the conditions of the year, and it is developed an...

2018 Clos Figueras "Serras del Priorat" Priorat

93 points James Suckling: "Wonderful aromas of crushed blackberries, licorice, tar and bark follow to a full body with round, chewy tannins and fantastic depth of fruit and intensity. Needs time to come together, but so structured. Try after 2022" (10/2020) K&L Notes: A blend of Garnacha, Samso (Carignan), Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah it is fermented in tank and then aged in 500L used French oak barrels. This wine has always been considered the "entry level" offering for Clos Figueras, a brighter fresher interpretation of the region. This is an unado...

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...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From granite and clay soils, the reductive 2018 Encinas fermented in concrete and matured in an oak vat. The reduction should eventually go, but it gives it an old-time Cornas profile. Mencía is quite reductive and it shows here. But the palate is superb, especially in the cooler and fresher 2018 vintage. The wine has stuffing and freshness, and the traditional, somewhat rustic profile should turn into a beauty in bottle. It needs time and air, as that reductive character reveals itself in a flinty way with a tou...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I also got a last-minute bottle of the Saca Mayo 2019 of the NV Fino Tradición, which had just been bottled, and it really felt like I was drinking it straight from the bota. In fact, the palate had some tenderness that I didn't notice in the other bottlings, and the word that came to my head when drinking it was spherical, a round wine with no edges, especially after it had been in the glass for a couple of hours. The way to compare these bottlings is to pour a glass of each and follow its evolution for a couple...

" (07/2019) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The fruit-driven and young 2018 Font de la Figuera Blanco has aromas of white fruit and a touch of fennel and Mediterranean herbs. It's fresh and has nice balance, balsamic flavors and a dry, faintly bitter finish. It ends quite tasty and with focused, pure flavors. (LG)" (08/2019)

Medium-bodied with integrated tannins that are polished and fine. Goes on for minutes. A beautiful, traditional wine, as always. Drink or hold." (09/2020) K&L Notes: 96 points Tim Atkin "Bosconia faces south and has plenty of fruit sweetness, even in a very cool Atlantic vintage like 2008.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The regular Albariño is one of the most reliable among the more available wines, and it tends to show well early on and also age nicely for a few years in bottle. The 2019 Albariño de Fefiñanes feels unusually expressive and ready, very approachable, with a harmonious nose but with none of that reductive character often found in the early bottled wines. It's floral, varietal, aromatic and clean, with a balanced palate combining volume with great freshness. I tend to like this wine two or three years after the har...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The first Albariño to be bottled is the 2019 Leirana, which I was also able to compare with the 2018 vintage. It's the one that represents the character of the Valle del Salnés, as it's produced with grapes from different villages across the valley. This ferments in a combination of 60% stainless steel vats and 40% oak foudres, where the wine matures for six months. Contrary to what I've seen at other addresses, this 2019 is very closed and backward; it's a vintage with very high acidity, citrus and salt. This is...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The eponymous red 2015 Sedella was cropped from a warm and dry year; despite this, the wine is only 13.5% alcohol and has good freshness. It matured in used French oak barrels for 14 months. For the first time, the wine reminded me of an old Colares, with some earthy and rusty aromas, character and rusticity. It really had the aromatic profile of an old red from Portugal (that I love!). There are notes of iron and licorice, and the palate had pungent flavors and fine-grained but slightly pointy tannins. I guess t...

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Juan García Jarana, the motorcycle magnate of Jerez, sells a portion of his soleras to Lustau for this delicate Oloroso. It starts with notes of candied almonds, coconut palm syrup and caramel. The hint of salinity lends complexity and freshness, without diminishing that delicate, pleasing sweetness." (06/2009) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Just add this oloroso to the growing list of excellent Sherries from Lustau. This one is tellingly nutty on the nose, thus the hazelnut and walnut flavors are expected as they become part of...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Estrecho was cropped from a more unusual, cooler and wetter year. It's produced with a very soft vinification in 2,000-liter oak vats and new barriques. It was bottled after 15 months in oak. This is a powerful vintage; the wine has clout, power and concentration and a little more rusticity (the textbook tree bark!) than the 2017 that I tasted together with this one. There are some dusty tannins and an earthy, chalky sensation on the palate. The 2017 feels more precise than this, but the only problem wit...

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 ...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "93+ points "The second vintage for this amazing and unusual sparkling Txakoli, the 2016 Izar-Leku was produced by the traditional method of second fermentation in bottle, where the wine spent 18 months, but the base wine was with lees for a year (one-third in barrel) before it was put in bottle. The bottles are kept at low temperature, 13 degrees Celsius and nowadays at 11.5 degrees Celsius, which makes for a slower fermentation that produces very fine bubbles. They have not disgorged all the bottles and some are...

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Notes of anise and clove distinguish this robust Oloroso, accenting its salinity. It recalls the coasts of Jerez with aromas and flavors of iodine, salt and the signature earthy dampness of Hidalgo's very old soleras. Firm on the palate, with sharp acidity that penetrates the depths of the wine's flavors, this would be delicious with clams sautéed in olive oil and garlic."

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The idea with the white 2018 Iraun is to produce a Viura with freshness and subtleness, aged in oak but without being overpowered by wood and creaminess. In reality, it's a Viura-based blend with some 20% other white varieties, Garnacha Blanca, Maturana Blanca and Malvasía Riojana, with only 12.5% alcohol and good freshness from an ancient plot of vines in the village of El Villar. It fermented with indigenous yeasts, and the fermentation started in stainless steel but finished in a combination of tinaja and a us...

The wine feels complex and with moderate acidity. Furthermore, they now use 4,000-liter oak foudres for the élevage of part of the wine. This some tannins, and it has grip and balance, a chalky texture and a dry, serious finish. They did shorter macerations and managed to keep the freshness.

It was produced with grapes from three hectares of 117-year-old vines in the zone of Cárdenas, where the soils are red and have a lot of iron. It fermented in a combination of concrete and oak vats and 500-liter barrels with 20% full clusters and indigenous yeasts followed by malolactic in concrete and foudre and 12 months' aging in 500-liter barrels and a Stockinger foudre.

The tannins and alcohol make the wine come through as balanced and not as sweet as you might imagine given the amount of sugar it has. This is bottled unoaked and matured exclusively in bottle. It's the Mediterranean alternative ...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Kinki is different from the 2018, as the red grapes were riper and had more aromatic influence, a little wilder and with a saline twist. But there's better acidity here. It was bottled one week before I tasted it, and the wine was showing well. It's a lot more serious than the initial 2018, which might have have been a little radical. This feels more complex and has depth, clout and nuance. Surprisingly enough, there is more freshness, too, and a more defined palate with more precision. I still see the s...

It aged under flor for about eight years, and then spent eight more years aging oxidatively before being bottled. At first, it shows only the classic flavors of iodine and salt, with enchanting sea breeze notes.

In fact, there is only half a degree difference in alcohol between this 2018 and the 2017.
