Dom De Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2011 Product #27141 (In Stock)
Dom De Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2011 Dom De Eguren Protocolo Tinto 2011

Here's the kind of value that made Spain famous in the international wine world, but that seems to have vanished in recent years. And, the 2011 is even tastier than the very fine 2010!  This is 100% Tempranillo, aged 3 years in American Oak, and it delivers loads of honest, unconfected, aromas and flavors with a juicy, zingy, finish.  A fine party or backyard cookout red at a very compelling price.

Mars And Venus Chardonnay 2013 Mars And Venus Chardonnay 2013

A very nice value Chardonnay that comfortably over-delivers vs. its modest price tag. No oak here, just bushels of clean, crisp, Chardonnay apple and stone fruit with a hint of caramelized pineapple.  Juicy and clean, this is a mid-weight white that's just perfect for parties or weeknight sipping.

Lopez De Haro Rioja Tempranillo 2012 Product #28582 (In Stock)
Lopez De Haro Rioja Tempranillo 2012 Lopez De Haro Rioja Tempranillo 2012

On tasting this, our first thought:  What a great summer red!  It’s full of fresh, thirst-quenching, strawberry and raspberry fruit with just a touch of oak spice and smoke from the few months it spent “warming up” the new oak barrels to be used for longer-aged Crianza and Reserva Rioja wines.  Drink it with a light chill for maximum refreshment or let it warm up a bit to sing with burgers and hot dogs off the grill.

"The 2012 Lopez de Haro Tempranillo is pure young Tempranillo used to break the new barrels for three to four months, showing the purple color and the exuberance of the young fruit with strawberries, raspberries, flowers and red licorice notes. A pleasure to drink slightly chilled with charcuterie. Refreshing and a real bargain.”Wine Advocate 89 points

Borsao Monte Oton Garnacha 2012 Product #27206 (In Stock)
Borsao Monte Oton Garnacha 2012 Borsao Monte Oton Garnacha 2012

Another great vintage for this perennial "best value" Garnacha from Campo de Borgia.  Powerful, deep aromas of black raspberry and cherry with accents of minerals and fresh cut flowers.  Juicy and fresh in the mouth but with plenty of dark berry and cherry fruit and hints of lavender and liquorice.  Long and clean on the spicy finish over oodles of ripe fruit.  Easy to drink, but worth attending to.

Stunning blend of 85% Garnacha and 15% Tempranillo, and long one of our – and Robert Parker’s – “go to” wineries for great value reds, this Campo de Borgia Garnacha specialist has outdone itself with a brilliant 2012.  A perfect bottle to serve to a crowd or sip on its own after a hard day, this will also sing with anything from salmon to burgers or roast pork.

Mundo De Yuntero Tempranillo Syrah 2012 Product #28047 (In Stock)
Mundo De Yuntero Tempranillo Syrah 2012 Mundo De Yuntero Tempranillo Syrah 2012

A tad bit better and more fun than the Wine Advocate write-up suggests, this charming La Mancha red bursts with blackberry and plum fruit and just touch of complicating spice.  A fruit-forward, fun, wine that's easy to drink and ready to play at your next party or casual meal.

"The 2012 Mundo de Yuntero Tempranillo comes from Cuidad Real from organic vines (including 15% Syrah) and sees no oak contact. It has a clean, fresh boysenberry and small dark cherry nose, while the palate is fleshy and generous on the entry. It finishes a little “generic” but it is a commercially sound Tempranillo at a bargain price."Wine Advocate 90 points

Epilogo La Mancha Blanco (Sauvignon And Moscatel) 2012 Epilogo La Mancha Blanco (Sauvignon And Moscatel) 2012

A juicy, fresh, and really delicious blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc for citrus, fresh herb and cut and 10% Moscatel for stone fruit and floral notes.  A great solo sipper and will work just fine with salads or seafood, too.

"The 2012 Epilogo is a blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Moscatel from biodynamically cultivated vines and undergoes a natural ferment. The nose is crisp and lively; displaying lemon thyme, apricot and citrus peel. The palate is well-balanced with elderflower-tinged citrus fruit that fans out towards a flavorsome, clean, precise finish. This is an excellent white La Mancha wine!

Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2013 Product #28545 (In Stock)
Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2013 Martinez Lacuesta Blanco Rioja 2013

This is 100% Viura grown in selected sites across Rioja. The ripe grapes are pressed and the juice goes into all new barrels - a mixture of French and American oak and acacia - to ferment and rest for 3 months. After that, the wine moves into stainless steel to complete its maturation, retaining freshness and verve to go along with the light oak influence.

Give it a sniff, and you'll be rewarded with pretty springtime aromas of peach, pineapple, and almond blossom. Take a sip and you'll discover a round, creamy, textured wine that's bursting with zesty fruit and juicy acids. After you swallow, you'll notice the fresh flavors lingering nicely as a hint of honey and bitter almond emerge at the end. Almost too easy to drink by itself for refreshment and fun, you'll love how this enhances warm weather favorites like fresh fish, grilled mushrooms, or marinated chicken.

Isabelino Rueda 2013 Isabelino Rueda 2013

Spain's Rueda region turns out plenty of great value sipping whites, and this blend of 85% Verdejo and 15% Viura is one of the best.  It's bursting with lively tangerine and peach aromas and flavors with a white pepper note adding a bit more zest.  Light and fresh, clean and precise, it's zesty enough to quench your thirst and easygoing enough to tempt you to another glass.

Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2013 Product #28642 (In Stock)
Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2013 Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2013

Over the past decade in Spain, "Verdejo" has come to be synonymous with "clean, crisp, white wine."  Which is unexpected, since it's only been 20 years or so since the Sanz family launched this estate and led the transformation of Rueda from oxidized, sherry-like, wines to refreshing beauties like this one!  Big aromas of tropical fruit, tangerine, lemongrass and lemon thyme lead to bold flavors of ripe citrus (pink grapefruit, orange, lemon) with a touch of anise and fresh cut grass for interest.  It's smooth and vibrant on the palate with excellent length and a mouthwatering finish that leaves citrus, green melon, and peach skin flavors lingering nicely.  A great solo sipper and very flexible with food.

Paso A Paso Tempranillo La Mancha 2012 Product #27782 (In Stock)
Paso A Paso Tempranillo La Mancha 2012 Paso A Paso Tempranillo La Mancha 2012

A straight-ahead, lightly oaked, Tempranillo with good richness, plenty of fruit and spice, and enough acidity to stay fresh.  Nice value.

"Aged for six months in two- and three-year-old French oak. Bright purple. Smoky cherry and dark berries on the fragrant nose. Lush and open-knit, offering appealingly sweet blueberry and boysenberry flavors accented by a hint of cracked pepper. Finishes smooth and spicy, with a hint of tannins and good persistence."International Wine Cellar 89 points

Finca Sobreno Toro Crianza 2010 Product #28574 (In Stock)
Finca Sobreno Toro Crianza 2010 Finca Sobreno Toro Crianza 2010

This has been a Spanish value staple for years now, but the 2010 is the best edition I’ve ever tasted.  The wine is 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo), hand harvested from vines 30+ years-old. There’s plenty of ripe Temparnillo fruit here – cherry, blackberry and plum – and very nice doses of wood spice and the grape’s exotic sandalwood fragrance.  But cool nights on the vine and careful treatment in the winery leave a bright, refreshing, acidity in place as well and the smooth, refined, tannins don’t get in the way of solo sipping pleasure.  A lot of wine for a very  modest price.

"Primary dark berry and licorice aromas are perked up by a strong note of cracked pepper. Zesty blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors gain sweetness with air and pick up floral and spicecake nuances. Closes sweet, focused and long, with very good energy and slowly building tannins."International Wine Cellar 90 points

Lorca Monastrell 2009 Product #28185 (In Stock)
Lorca Monastrell 2009 Lorca Monastrell 2009

The DO of Bullas, higher up than Jumilla with a bigger contrast in daytime vs. nighttime temperatures and a bit more freshness in the wines.

"The DO of Bullas has the highest elevation Monastrell vines in Spain, more so than neighboring Jumilla, providing a bigger contrast in daytime vs. nighttime temperatures. The purple/black 2009 Lorca Monastrell offers up intriguing aromas of underbrush, brier, game, and blueberry. In the glass it exhibits ample spicy fruit, a bit of underlying structure, and 1-2 years of aging potential. Drink this crowd-pleaser through 2019."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Bielsa Campo De Borja Garnacha 2011 Product #28229 (In Stock)
Bielsa Campo De Borja Garnacha 2011 Bielsa Campo De Borja Garnacha 2011

As Steve Tanzer said about the 2010, "This wine isn't shy about the fruit." From dry-farmed, old vines, grown in the scrubby vineyards of Campo de Borgia, this delivers a huge mouthful of intense Garnacha flavors:  black and red raspberry, black and Bing cherry, licorice, white pepper and more.  Plenty of ripeness, especially on the back where a kirsch-like flavor emerges, but it's also savory black pepper and fine lift and energy. Finishes dry and even a little floral with dark berry lingering on.  Fun to sip; great with any rustic food.  A steal.

Finca Valldosera Cava Brut Nature NV Product #23944 (In Stock)
Finca Valldosera Cava Brut Nature NV Finca Valldosera Cava Brut Nature NV

The price-quality-ratio here is just absurd. Toasty and yeasty on the nose then fantastically complex apple and golden fruit flavors with plenty of yeast/bread dough flavors.  Stunning levels of fruit for a no-dosage wine and the kind of creamy, silky, texture normally only found in $40 Champagne.  Super friendly, you can drink this like Prosecco if you like, but it's more than sophisticated enough to warrant close attention.

"Finca Valldosera is a boutique producer (5000 cases total production) of high-class Cava. All three of the above Cavas are Brut Nature meaning they have received zero dosage. The Non-Vintage Brut Nature is a blend of 45% Xarel-lo, 30% Macabeo, 10% Parellada, 10% Chardonnay, and 5% Subirat Parent with 10% of the Xarel-lo barrel-fermented and aged. The wine remained sur lie for 24 months and was hand-riddled. It offers up an enticing nose of brioche, smoked nuts, and assorted white fruits. Displaying small persistent bubbles, a smooth texture, and excellent balance, this tasty Cava over-delivers in a big way."Wine Advocate 90 points

Clua Mas D'en Pol Blanca 2012 Product #27300 (In Stock)
Clua Mas D'en Pol Blanca 2012 Clua Mas D'en Pol Blanca 2012

Maybe it’s the great 2012 vintage (a winner in pretty much all of Europe), or perhaps it’s a little more rigorous vineyard work or a touch more sophistication in the blend.  Or, it could just be that Xavier left Muscat out of the blend this year.  Whatever the cause, this is far and away my favorite release of this sophisticated but crowd-pleasing white ever.

Xavier makes this from Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay and a dash of Sauvignon Blanc grown in the rocky, hard-to-work, vineyards of Terra Alta.  Fermented cool in tank and bottled without ever touching a barrel, it delivers just the right balance of luscious nectarine and tangy pineapple fruit with hints of lemon grass and lime pith.  Round, generous, and mouthfilling, the real excitement here is on the back palate and finish where a burst of selzer, chalk, and briny mineral emerges under the mouthwatering acidity.  A refreshing white you’ll love sipping on the back deck with nibbles and enjoy even more with shellfish, sausage, or paella.  Just a winner all around.

Bodegas Laukote Rioja Tempranillo Borg 2012 Product #28428 (In Stock)
Bodegas Laukote Rioja Tempranillo Borg 2012 Bodegas Laukote Rioja Tempranillo Borg 2012

Start with "young" (20-30 years) Tempranillo vines growing naturally in rocky vineyards in Rioja Alavesa.  Hand harvest the grapes and place them in a tank - uncrushed and still on the stems - and then blanket them with CO2.  Then, once fermentation starts, winemaker Norberto Miguel puts on a breathing mask and air tank...and jumps down into the grapes!  He steps gently to break grape skins and extract color without crushing seeds or breaking stems that might add bitter tannin.  Then, as fermentation continues, he gives the wine gentle pump-overs to get more color, richness and depth still.

The last vintage of this beauty was called "Ona", but Norberto Miguel had to change the name to Borg this release.  It's still one of the most versatile, juicy, and absolutely delicious Tempranillo wines in the store.  The 2012 is even more juicy and refreshing than the 2011.  Loads of fresh cherry, red plum and blackberry fruit with accents of wood smoke, spice, and earth - all from the soil, because there's no oak on this wine at all!  The fine tannins give it enough support for food, but you can chill it and sip it solo, too!

Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2012 Product #28077 (In Stock)
Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2012 Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2012

A clean, sea breeze, Alabrino with tangy fruit - green melon, apricot, passionfruit and pink grapefruit - with accents of lime zest and green apple.  The fruit is attractive, but the real story here is the zesty, salty, almost seltzery minerality the comes up in the mid-palate and flows across the mouthwatering, saline, finish.  You'll love having a cold glass of this great value at your side while hiding in the shade from a hot summer sun, but it will shine even more with steamed shrimp, clams, or mussles, grilled sardines, or any dish that makes you think of the sea.

"BEST BUY! A yellow straw color. On the nose, the wine shows intense fruity aromas of fresh grapefruit, apricot and melon. In the mouth, Valmiñor combines fruity flavors and freshness with a rounded acidity, resulting in a balanced wine that boasts an opulent taste with elegant aromas and slight spritziness."Wine & Spirits 92 points
