Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2011 Product #29191 (In Stock)
Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2011 Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2011

This has been a Spanish value staple for years now, and the 2011 is yet another fine Toro Tempranillo.  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.

"Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and roasted coffee on the nose, with attractive floral and spicecake notes. Lush and expansive in the mouth, offering broad cherry and cassis flavors and a hint of licorice. A suave, gently sweet and open-knit wine, with a spicy element emerging on the long, gently tannic finish."International Wine Cellar 90 points

Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2014 Product #29706 (In Stock)
Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2014 Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2014

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.

Vina Galana Tempranillo 2013 Product #30119 (In Stock)
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.

Convento Oreja Ribera Del Duero Roble 2014 Product #29884 (In Stock)
Convento Oreja Ribera Del Duero Roble 2014 Convento Oreja Ribera Del Duero Roble 2014

A great value, great drinking, Ribera del Duero that's much classier than the price suggests.  100% Tempranillo aged briefly in 40% French and 60% American oak before bottling and landing here still fresh as a daisy.  Lush and rich in texture but with fine supporting acidity and tannins make this fun to sip solo and great with even big flavors at table.

"Black fruit compote, cola and peppery spices on the perfumed nose, with notes of incense and licorice pastille adding complexity. Deep, sappy and broad on the palate, offering flavors of black and blue fruit liqueur that pick up a spicy element with aeration. Gains energy in the glass, finishing with lingering notes of candied dark berries and slow-building, harmonious tannins."  Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points

Bodegas Lan Rioja Reserva 2010 Product #31184 (In Stock)
Bodegas Lan Rioja Reserva 2010 Bodegas Lan Rioja Reserva 2010

They've freshed up the label on this long-time favorite Rioja Reserva but the wine's the same as ever.  You'll find plenty of rich Tempranillo black fruit and a lift of tangy acidity from other Rioja varietals, all wrapped up in a plush blanket of vanilla/dill/smoke laced American oak.  All the spice, dark fruit, bright acidity and a good dose of chewy tannin make this a great red for grilled or roasted meat.

Condado De Haza Ribera Del Duero 2011 Condado De Haza Ribera Del Duero 2011

Another great vintage for this Ribera de Duero classic - 100% Tempranillo aged 15 months in new and used American oak.

"Smoke-accented aromas of cherry, blackberry and coconut, with hints of truffle and cured meat in the background. Smooth, sweet and broad in the mouth, offering pliant dark fruit flavors complemented by oak spice and mocha nuances. Gentle tannins build slowly on a long, spicy finish that leaves sweet fruitcake and vanilla notes behind."  Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points

Bodegas Lan Vina Lanciano Rioja Rsv 2010 Product #31095 (In Stock)
Bodegas Lan Vina Lanciano Rioja Rsv 2010 Bodegas Lan Vina Lanciano Rioja Rsv 2010

A blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo and 5% Graciano, this is rock-solid Reserva Rioja with tangy fruit and a smoky, savory, finish.

:A blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo and 5% Graciano, the 2010 Lanciano Reserva is sourced from Lanciano estate along the River Ebro, northeast of Fuenmayor. It has a combination of herbal, balsamic and ripe aromas with a medium to full-bodied palate and plenty of influence from the oak, but there is better integration of tannins and acidity, perhaps the natural balance of the vintage."Wine Advocate 91 points

Finca Sobreno Ildefonso 2009 Product #30569 (In Stock)
Finca Sobreno Ildefonso 2009 Finca Sobreno Ildefonso 2009

This is Finca Sobreno’s top wine, all coming from 80 year-old, dry farmed, Tinto de Toro vines on the estate’s main property.  The old vines yield a tiny amount of intensely ripe and powerful grapes and a wine that’s almost too full of sweet, dark, black fruit, spice, and richly textured tannins.  To bring the wine together requires 18 months aging in all new French oak barrels, which smooths off rough edges, locks in color, and adds an extra layer of smoky spice.  Two more years in bottle allows the wood to integrate and more earthy complexity to develop.

The 2009 is a big wine, but light on its feet and not at all overpowering.  Red and black fruit are at the wine’s core with notes of savory herb and sandalwood underneath and sweet spice and smoke on top.  Supple, round, and very long, this is in prime drinking condition now – try it with grilled lamb! – but can certainly continue to improve through 2021.

“Made from vines that are over 80 years old; aged in all new French oak for 18 months. Inky purple. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes candied dark berries, woodsmoke, incense and violet pastille. Stains the palate with concentrated, almost shockingly vivacious black and blue fruit flavors. Smooth, sweet and expansive on the clinging, energetic finish.”  Vinous (Reynonds) 93 points
