Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2012 Product #29496 (In Stock)
Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2012 Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2012

Here's an outstanding value from little-known Calatayud in Spain that will do just as well on the bar for a party as it will with roasted meats or robust sausage.  It's based on 85% Garnacha from 40-50 year old bush-trained vines that have to dig deep into their non-irrigated soils for water and nutrients.  About 7% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo add structure and some black fruit notes and a dash of Syrah give meaty spice.

The 2011 edition was one of our best-selling red value favorites of both 2013 and 2014, and the new vintage cranks up the intensity and depth even more.  The aromas are robust and fresh, with generous dollops of raspberry, violet and spice (just from the grapes - no oak used at all!).  The flavors follow with more raspberry and sweet cherry fruit, hints of dark chocolate and more spice.  With air, the fruit gets darker and richer, but a touch of citrusy acid and light, crisp, tannins keeps things fresh even as complex flavors of balsamic and baked strawberry linger.  Supple enough for a party, structured enough for most anything you’ll pull off the grill, and a steal of a deal, too!

"A very honest, fresh and fruit-driven red with aromas of cherries, garrigue and thyme with a medium-bodied palate, some weight and tannins that would do better with food. This is a red that sells for a song."Wine Advocate 88 points

Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2015 Product #31194 (In Stock)
Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2015 Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2015

Robert Parker called the 2011 edition of this perennial favorite value red, “Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world.”  The 2015 edition is even better, clearly the best release of this all-time value champion we’ve tasted to date.  As always, it’s a blend of 85% Garnacha and 15% Tempranillo, all grown on the dusty, barren, soils of Spain’s Campo de Borja region.  Naturally grown, hand harvested, and fermented and aged all in tank, it’s a perfect blend of rich, ripe, fruit and stylish, refreshing, structure.

The wine opens with big, bold aromas of black cherry, dark berries, underbrush, loamy earth and cracked black pepper. Take a sip and you'll love the explosion of dark raspberry and blackberry fruit and accents of pepper, rich earth, and sweet spice - all from the grape, because there's no oak here at all.  The finish is broad, fresh and very long, with fine, dusty, tannins providing food-friendly support and dark berry and pepper flavors lingering nicely.  A delicious wine that sell for a crazy low price.

Bodega Nino Jesus Figaro Tinto 2013 Product #30784 (In Stock)
Bodega Nino Jesus Figaro Tinto 2013 Bodega Nino Jesus Figaro Tinto 2013

The 2013 Figaro is a great introduction to the old vines of Spain's Calatayud and just an all-around great “House Red” to enjoy this year.  The low-yielding old Garnacha vines give this wonderful ripeness and concentration, with big aromas and flavors of baked strawberry, dark black cherry, dried flowers, and cracked pepper.  The cool nights and fermentation in steel tank lock in the fruit and keep it fresh and vibrant, while a short stay in oak barrels rounds off the edges and adds a lovely burst of sweet spice on the juicy, lightly chewy, finish.  

Drink it cool and you’ll love the almost sangria-like fruitiness.  Let it come up to room temperatures, and watch this fill your mouth with generous fruit and spice and pair perfectly with most any meat, fish, or vegetable coming off the grill.  A great all-purpose red to enjoy anytime!

A classic Spanish red with plenty of gutsy fruit and a just right touch of oaky vanilla.  Finishes chewy and fun!

Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2015 Product #30719 (In Stock)
Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2015 Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2015

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!

At its best, Verdejo is like a richer, less grapefruity, version of Sauvignon Blanc.  Here big aromas of tropical fruit, tangerine, lemongrass and lemon thyme lead to bold flavors of ripe citrus (tangerine, 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 refreshing white to just sip and even better with Spanish tapas, sushi, or even spicy Cajun shrimp.

Big and rich with plenty of power and a nice floral note, too.

"This 100% Bobal (60 to 80-year-old vines), aged four months in concrete, represents a terrific buy. It possesses excellent delineation as well as lots of blueberry and sweet and sour cherry fruit intermixed with notions of chalk and strawberries. Medium-bodied and fruity with attractive texture as well as purity, it should drink well for several years."Wine Advocate 88 points

100 year-old vine complexity at a steal of a price. A regular "Best Buy" and 90 point winner, the not yet reviewed 2015 is especially delicious.  Big aromas of red currant, strawberry, blood orange and crushed flowers lead to juicy, fresh, flavors of ripe fruit and dark chocolate.  Finishes silky and pure with fine tannins and length.  As Josh Raynolds said of the 2013, "Finding a wine with this much clarity and precision is a tough job at double and even triple the price of this one."

Vinicola Corellana Camara Alta Navarra Garnacha 2015 Product #31418 (In Stock)
Vinicola Corellana Camara Alta Navarra Garnacha 2015 Vinicola Corellana Camara Alta Navarra Garnacha 2015

As more than one expert has said, seeing the Thomas Calder Selection note on a wine's back label is a close to a guarantee of quality as you're going to get.  Here, Tom heads south from his normal French turf to uncover a gem of a winery from Spain's Navarra region.  North of Rioja and note far from the French border, Navarra was Spain's most important wine region in the 1700-1800s, so much so that the King had to ban new vineyard plantings for fear not enough food would be grown to feed the local population!

The sandy soils of Ribera Baja, in Navarra's south, are perfect for getting traditional grapes like Garnacha fully ripe without going over the top, and that's what we have here.  Done all in tank, Garnacha grapes from 50+ year-old vines delivers direct strawberry and cherry fruit with dashes of herb and spice for extra interest.  Easy drinking, fresh, and fun, this over-delivers for the price and will be a great everyday red for casual food and entertaining.

Vina Galana Tempranillo 2013 Vina Galana Tempranillo 2013

Not to serious package for this not too serious (but very delicious!) no-oak Tempranillo.  Generous aromas of cherry, black raspberry and leather with a hint of licorice.  Then bold, rich, flavors of black plum and chocolate with juicy floral and licorice accents that gain strength on the finish.  Plenty of heft and firm, focused, tannins make this a great burger/chop choice but fun to just sip, too.

Ijalba Rioja Viura Genoli Blanco 2014 Ijalba Rioja Viura Genoli Blanco 2014

A great example of how refreshing and fun white Rioja can be when it's not too ripe or over-oaked.  Here 100% Viura sees no oak at all, and that lets the crisp, ripe, pear, apple, and stone fruit flavors shine through. The fruit pumps on through the generous finish where a touch of dusty stone adds interest. Try it with seafood, salads, or just warm afternoons!

Wine Advocate sums this one up nicely.  A crazy good bargain.

"The 2014 Hazana Vinas Viejas is simply one of the greatest values in Rioja that money can buy. A blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano, this collaboration between importer Eric Solomon and the owner and winemaker has produced an absolutely amazing Rioja from 45- to 70-year-old unirrigated, head-pruned vines. Loads of lead pencil shavings, black and red currants, licorice and tobacco leaf all jump from the glass of this dense, ruby/purple wine. Soft tannins, medium to full body and fabulous intensity, make for a sensational Rioja to drink over the next 5-7 years."Wine Advocate 92 points

Bodegas La Magdalena Sueno Tempranillo 2013 Bodegas La Magdalena Sueno Tempranillo 2013

Love the freshness and energy here, with juicy dark fruit given richness by spicy oak and a mellow complexity by a few years in bottle. Fun and tasty!

"A joint venture with one of their American importers, Majuelos de España, the 2013 Sueño (dream) is pure Tempranillo aged for 10 months in a mixture of 225- and 500-liter oak barrels. Inky dark and with a serious nose, this is a great example of a powerful, full-bodied Tempranillo from this zone of La Mancha. It has well-integrated oak, ripe black fruit and a palate with plenty of tannins that will secure a long development in bottle."Wine Advocate 90 points

The Recorba Ribera del Duero Tinto is an example of what happens when you get Tempranillo all the way ripe and then let it show it’s colors without any wood at all.  Big aromas and flavors of red plum, black cherry and raspberry take center stage with accents of natural spice, warm stones, and a touch of exotic sandalwood.  A huge “bang for the buck” Tempranillo to enjoy by itself or with pretty much anything you’d put on the grill.

Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Product #28953 (In Stock)
Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV

There's an element of class and style here you just don't often find in value-priced bubbles.  Authentic, delicious, and very well-priced.

"A family-owned winery whose origins date back to the 13th century, Fermi Bohigas owns over 240 acres of organically farmed vineyards in Catalunya. Made from a classic blend (for this area) of Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada planted in limestone and clay soils, the wine spends 24 months on its lees before disgorgement. It is an excellent value for consumers looking for alternatives to French Champagne. Lemon/lime, crushed rock and white currant notes are present in this crisp, elegant, refreshing, zesty, dry sparkler. Hints of wheat thins and brioche add complexity. Enjoy this medium-bodied offering over the next 1-2 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015 Product #31053 (In Stock)
Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015 Valminor Albarino Rias Baixas 2015

A fabulous follow up to the highly rated 2014, the 2015 Valminor Albarino combines the almost seltzery minerality that makes this wine so refreshing with just a couple of extra notches of ripeness thanks to the fantastic 2015 vintage, which is shaping up to be a historic vintage in most of Europe, especially for white wines.

Aromas of peaches, green melon, apricot, and a hint of white flowers tempt you to take a sip. On the palate those ripe stone fruit flavors persist, but it finishes with a seltzery, saline minerality that makes it very dry and refreshing. This is a wine made for fresh seafood, but it’ll do just fine as a delicious aperitif to bring you back to life after a hot day.

“Gloriously aromatic with jasmine and flint notes; very scented. Full and fleshy palate with a mineral follow-through and an intense, harmonious finish. A very lovely Albariño that is so pure.” Decanter 92 points

A powerful but not at all overdone Monestrell from that hot, stony, vineyards of Jumilla.  Plum and blackcurrant aromas get accents from a touch of oak and hints of leather and earth.  Rich and dense on the palate with dark black fruit, spicy oak, and dark chocolate flavors that turn juicy and modestly oaky on the raspberry-laced finish. Grill something and enjoy!
