2010 Lambuena Crianza Ribera del Duero (Previously $20) Top Pick!
2010 Lambuena Crianza Ribera del Duero (Previously $20)

Located in the town of Roa, which is part of the Burgos district, Lambuena is a producer of D.O. Ribera del Duero wines and is one of our newest Spanish direct imports. Ideally situated in the central growing region of the Ribera del Duero, in an area known for the very high quality of its chalky clay soils and its extreme continental climate, Lambuena makes big, generously fruited, yet structured and ultimately classic Ribera del Duero wines (these days, this is very difficult to find in this D.O.) Though the wines consist primarily of Tempranillo ("tin... Read More »

2010 Finca El Encinal Crianza Ribera del Duero

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Pay no attention to the toasted oak scents that introduce this wine, because they soon leave the scene. Fix your attention instead to the generosity of its fruit, voluptuous and smooth. This is richly layered in flavors (some closer to meat than fruit), with a density that traps and wraps in a lovely way. All in all, a complex wine and an astonishing value. Finca El Encinal is a project from the traditional bodega Franco Españolas de la Rioja." (6/2013) K&L Notes: Owned by the historic, traditionally minded Bodegas Franco Españolas in Rioja, Finca El Encinal is a sim... Read More »

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 »

2009 Valderiz Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2009 Valderiz Ribera del Duero

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The fabulous 2009 Valderiz comes from 30- to70-year-old vines and is blended with 5% Albillo before aged for 20 months in mainly French oak (50% new). Again, one is impressed by both the precision and clarity on the nose, the vibrant effervescent red berry fruit being allowed to express itself. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent, fleshy tannins. There is fine grip here and lovely touches of orange zest and a little balsamic on the elegant finish. This is a top-notch wine that should age with style. Drink 2013-2020. I was very impressed by the win ...Read More »

2010 Condado de Haza Ribera del Duero

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby. Smoky aromas of blackberry, cherry pit and game, with a subtle floral nuance in the background. In a wild, meaty style, offering sweet, focused cherry compote and bitter chocolate flavors and a touch of allspice. Finishes very long, with lingering smokiness, fine-grained tannins and a kick of peppery spices" (10/2014) K&L Notes: Alejandro Fernandez' Condado de Haza may be less famous than its sister winery, Pesquera, but it also produces terrific wines that are classically built Ribera del Dueros made not to coat the palate with sweet oak and glyce...

2004 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero Top Pick!
2004 Vega Sicilia "Unico" Ribera del Duero

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Editors’ Choice * Lightly baked and hinting at raisin and fine herbs, the bouquet on this benchmark Spanish red enfolds aromas of tobacco, moss and ripe tomato. In the mouth, it’s elegant and silky but also full and expansive. Flavors of baked berry fruits, baking spices, herbs and cocoa finish with a light coating of toast. This is an amazingly complete, exemplary wine that’s just entering its prime. If past vintages of Unico are an indication, it will age well through 2035." (5/2015)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pablo Alvarez described 2004 as a textbook vintage with perfect tempe ...Read More »

2011 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Crianza Tinto Ribera del Duero

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby. Fresh cherry, dark berries and vanilla on the highly perfumed nose, with a hint of woodsmoke building in the glass. Sappy and nicely focused, offering zesty bitter cherry and blackberry flavors underscored by a mineral element. 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 »

2004 Alion (Vega Sicilia) Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bodegas Alion was started by the renowned estate of Vega Sicilia in 1991. Grapes are sourced from vineyards next to the winery and from Vega Sicilia’s own vineyards at Valbuena. Eighteen hectares of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) form the actual Alion estate. The 2004 Alion is inky purple-colored with an alluring perfume of toasty oak, lavender, violets, mineral, blackberry, and blueberry compote. This is followed by a full-bodied, rich, opulent, wine with incipient complexity, and notes of licorice, mocha, and espresso emerging on the palate. The lengthy fini ...Read More »

2004 Mauro VdT de Castilla y Leon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004, from what appears to be a great vintage, is opaque purple in appearance. It emits scintillating aromas of smoke, toast, herbs, kirsch, and black fruits. It is a full-bodied, large-scaled effort with oodles of fruit and enough structure to age effortlessly for 6-8 years and drink well for a decade thereafter." (02/07)

2005 Vinedos Alonso del Yerro "Maria" Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Maria is purple/black, brooding aromatically with an array of licorice, tar, truffle, blackberry, and blueberry. This densely packed wine demands 8-10 year of cellaring and will offer a drinking window extending from 2018 to 2040. The current owners purchased this estate in 2002 and hired Stephane Derenoncourt of Bordeaux renown as consultant. The Alonso del Yerro cuvee, made from 100% Tempranillo, typically goes through ML in barrel followed by 12 months sur lie with batonnage in new French oak. The Maria cuvee (also 100% Tempranillo) is fermen ...Read More »

2005 Mauro VdT de Castilla y Leon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Mauro is made up of 97% Tempranillo and 3% Syrah. Opaque purple-colored, it reveals a brooding but enticing bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, tar, and assorted black fruits. This leads to a layered, plush, mouth-filling, sweetly fruited wine with tons of flavor. It has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years and its finish is long and pure. It can be enjoyed now but will continue to provide pleasure through 2025." (02/08) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Seductively p... Read More »

2001 Aalto PS, Ribera del Duero

98 points Robert Parker: "Not surprisingly, in a vintage that afforded great raw materials, the 2001 PS is out of this world. Smoke, graphite, blackberry liqueur, blueberries, violets, and spicy oak jump from the glass of this inky/purple-colored 2001. Texturally and color-wise, it is reminiscent of dry vintage port. With terrific purity and a full-bodied, rich palate that offers multiple dimensions, there is a seamlessness to this wine even though it remains young and unevolved. I would recommend another 1-2 years of cellaring (as hard as that may be), ... Read More »

2012 Dominio de Pingus "Flor de Pingus" Ribera del Duero

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Flor de Pingus is produced with the fruit from 16 plots of vineyards in La Horra (Burgos) which are vinified by plot in small, 4,000-liter stainless steel vats mostly with indigenous yeasts. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in barrels (50% new, 50% second-use) where the wine aged for 16-18 months. It-s again an austere closed red, with a shy nose that needs pulling. What you get is very harmonious and elegant, no exuberance here, but classical proportions, perfectly integrated oak and superb balance. A very worthy version of Flor, a wine ...Read More »

2003 Pingus, Ribera del Duero

96-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A candidate for perfection, the profound 2003 Pingus possesses an awesome smoky, blackberry, and cassis-scented nose intermixed with hints of espresso roast, lead pencil shavings, cedar, and subtle new oak. Sensational concentration, a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and wood, and a blockbuster finish lasting nearly a minute result in one of the most profound wines ever made in Spain. It should age effortlessly for two decades or more. A limited cuvee, named after the importer’s daughter, th... Read More »

1995 Bodegas Mauro Vendimia Seleccionada

92 points Wine Spectator: "This powerful red is nearly black in color, with great concentration on the palate, yet no clumsiness. The complex flavors range from plum to coffee to black olive to exotic spices; the tannins are muscular yet ripe, the finish clean and long." (9/2000)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. More reticent yet highly complex aromas of inky cassis, cherry liqueur, chocolate, espresso, licorice and shoe polish; distinct notes of torrefaction. Less explosive and aromatically complex than the above and more dominated today by its structure, but quite densely packed. Perhaps a bit reduced ...Read More »

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Emilio Moro "Malleolus de Valderramiro" Ribera del Duero (OWC - 97RP, 93WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Malleolus de Valderramiro is a dense opaque purple color. It has a roasted character along with Asian spices, incense, and a cocktail of black fruits. Powerful on the palate, this is a packed effort with loads of fruit and tannin that will require a minimum of 8-10 years to become approachable."

2010 Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez "Pesquera" Reserva Ribera del Duero

The reserva bottling of Pesquera is typically higher in acidity, shows more layered. penetrating aromatics, and is very clearly built for the long haul. 2010, another very good vintage in Ribera del Duero, is no exception for this special bottling. It willl not likely be at its best for some time, and will make for old bones to be sure. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)

Not showy, but all is harmonious and well-integrated." (11/2005)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Smoky, ripe aromas of cherry liqueur, blackberry and tobacco are just this side of roasted. Lush and fleshy, the dark fruit flavors showing an exotic spice quality, with notes of floral oil and incense.

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The sublime 2004 Flor de Pingus lacks the pure size and power of the 2005 but more than makes up for it with a regal elegance. The aromatics are already revealing considerable complexity while on the palate it is succulent, impeccably balanced, and mouth-coating. Give it another 5-6 years of bottle age and drink it from 2015 to 2034. (JM)" (6/2010)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby.
