Cune Rioja Rosado 2013 Product #29488 (In Stock)
Cune Rioja Rosado 2013 Cune Rioja Rosado 2013

From classic Rioja producer Cune comes this delicious 100% Tempranillo rose.  With plenty of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit, it's a little gutsier than the paler roses from the south of France, although it still has a nice dry, crisp finish.  A great rose to pair with grilled salmon or sausages all summer long.

Lopez De Haro Rioja Crianza 2010 Product #29747 (In Stock)
Lopez De Haro Rioja Crianza 2010 Lopez De Haro Rioja Crianza 2010

The 2008 was very nice, but this 2010 takes a clear step up in complexity and satisfaction.

"The 2010 Hacienda Lopez de Haro Crianza feels quite classical in its style, lightly-colored, with clean red spicy fruit, a touch of leather and a polished, soft palate that makes it very pleasant and easy to drink. At this price level this wine is a steal! Drink 2014-2018."Wine Advocate 91 points

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.

"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

“The 2012 Paso a Paso Tempranillo is even better. Aged six months in neutral French oak, it displays a savory, slightly fleshier style than its organic cousin. A sleeper of the vintage, it reveals a deep plum/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of black currants and jammy black cherries, excellent purity and texture, and a medium-bodied finish. This delicious red is an outrageous value. Drink it over the next 1-2 years.”Wine Advocate 89 points

Lopez De Haro Rioja Reserva 2005 Product #28490 (In Stock)
Lopez De Haro Rioja Reserva 2005 Lopez De Haro Rioja Reserva 2005

Huge savings on delicious, highly-rated, fully mature, Rioja Reserva – not much more that needs to be said!  The style here is what I might call “restrained modern.”  Great care has been taken to preserve ripe fruit flavors (and, for a 9 year-old wine, there’s a LOT of fruit here) and a deft use of French and American oak imparts classic Rioja earth, smoke and spice notes without overwhelming the wine.  The combination of oodles of dark fruit and traditional Rioja funk reminds us of long-time favorite Muga.  Drink it now for the fruit or cellar it for years if you enjoy the lighter, tea and chamomile tang of more traditional Rioja.

“These are excellent wines brimming with personality and well-judged, prudent winemaking. The 2005 Hacienda Lopez de Haro Reserva is a blend of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano and 5% Garnacha aged for 20 months in French and American oak. It has a beautiful, rounded, sensual bouquet with hints of over-ripe Satsuma and gravel. The palate is medium-bodied with a touch of piquancy on the entry. It has crisp acidity and taut tannins on the dry, dusky finish but it remains extremely well-focused. Drink now-2025.”Wine Advocate 92 points

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

Abadia De Acon Ribera Del Duero Roble 2012 Product #29269 (In Stock)
Abadia De Acon Ribera Del Duero Roble 2012 Abadia De Acon Ribera Del Duero Roble 2012

Here's an outstanding value in Ribera del Duero Tempranillo, all the better for spending just a few months in barrel. Generous aromas of crushed berries, chocolate and spice lead to a rich, but vibrant, palate of plump red and black fruit with accents of cracked pepper, sandalwood, and spice.  There's a touch of orange zest bite on the finish for added complexity.  Easy drinking, great value.

Convento Oreja Ribera Del Duero Roble 2013 Product #29050 (In Stock)
Convento Oreja Ribera Del Duero Roble 2013 Convento Oreja Ribera Del Duero Roble 2013

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.

"Smoky dark berries, cherry and woodsmoke on the fragrant nose. A rich, fruit-driven wine, offering pliant cassis and blackberry preserve flavors and a round, velvety texture. Delivers solid flavor impact and picks up even tannins on the finish, with the dark berry and smoke notes repeating."International Wine Cellar 90 points

Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Crianza 2011 Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Crianza 2011

Lovely, lithe, and very fresh Rioja.

"95% tempranillo and 5% garnacha. Opaque ruby. High-pitched aromas of red berries and candied rose, with a peppery accent building in the glass. Zesty and sharply focused, offering nervy redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness and depth with air. In a bright, elegant, almost pinot-like style, finishing with very good clarity and light tannins."  Vinous 90 points

Matsu Toro El Recio 2011 Product #29717 (In Stock)
Matsu Toro El Recio 2011 Matsu Toro El Recio 2011

A big, gutsy, "Tinto de Toro (Tempranillo) with all the heft you'd expect from this hot, arid, region but a touch of polish and class, too.  Aged 14 months in mostly used French oak, it serves up big aromas and flavors of red and black berries, dark chocolate, baking spice, and creamy vanilla.  Full and fleshy on the palate and finishing with fine tannins and plenty of fruit and spice.

Bodegas Asenjo & Manso Ceres 2011 Product #29197 (In Stock)
Bodegas Asenjo & Manso Ceres 2011 Bodegas Asenjo & Manso Ceres 2011

Surprising that such a young estate (founded 2004) could deliver the best "old school" Ribera del Duero we've tried in years.  Classic Ribera Tempranillo aromas of black fruit, spice, espresso, and toasty oak.  In the mouth, there's a good dose of ripe black and dried fruit with accents of spicy oak, soy, and roasted meat.  The finish is youthfully firm today and the toasty, spicy, oak rides on top of the fruit, but it will sing with roasted meats and stews now and gain more poise over the next year.  A Jonas Gustafsson Selection - which explains a lot, we think!

Gusty, powerful, and full of earthy richness.

"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."  Vinous 90 points

Alonso Del Yerro Ribera Del Duero 2010 Alonso Del Yerro Ribera Del Duero 2010

Rich and frankly flashy but with enough structure to pair up with steak or lamb nicely.

"The 2010 Crianza is a selection of Tempranillo grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for 10-15 months in a combination of new (15%) and used French oak barrels. The nose is very expressive, fresh, with a mixture of red and black fruit, developing complexity and absorbing the oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied with clean, delineated flavors. This is a superb value for money. Drink now-2020."Wine Advocate 93 points

Almirez Toro 2012 Product #29786 (In Stock)
Almirez Toro 2012 Almirez Toro 2012

A blockbuster Toro Tempranillo that remains remarkably fresh.

"Opaque purple. Smoky blueberry and cherry compote aromas pick up a peppery nuance with air, along with a subtle mocha quality. Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering sweet, concentrated black and blue fruit flavors and a touch of lavender pastille. Spreads out nicely on the juicy, penetrating finish, which is framed by silky, slow-building tannins."  Vinous 92 points

"The 2012 Almirez (a 1,000-case cuvée of 100% Tinta de Toro) was aged 14 months in French oak. This sensational wine comes from vines planted between 1949 and 1999. Yields were a conservative 1.8 tons of fruit per acre. An inky/purple color is followed by aromas of camphor, ground pepper, blackberries and cassis. This full-bodied, Northern Rhône Valley-like Spanish red exhibits meaty/lard notes, terrific density and purity, and a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds. It should drink nicely for a decade or more."Wine Advocate 93 points

"A polished texture conceals the solid structure in this muscular red, which offers currant and blackberry flavors that show notes of espresso and tar. Gamy and savory accents lend this an austere character, but fresh acidity maintains liveliness. Best from 2016 through 2024."Wine Spectator 90 points

Muga Rioja Reserva 2010 Muga Rioja Reserva 2010

Yup, another great vintage for this wine that splits the difference between "modern" and "traditional" styles.

"(70% tempranillo, 20% garnacha, 7% mazuelo and 3% graciano; fermented in large oak vats and aged for 24 months in oak casks of varying size): Opaque ruby. Musky, deeply pitched aromas of ripe red fruit, game, lavender and roasted coffee. Shows very good spicy lift in the mouth, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and an undercurrent of smoky minerals. Finishes with excellent focus and thrust; the slowly building tannins meld smoothly with the wine's dense fruit. Age this wine for at least another five years, with confidence."International Wine Cellar 92 points

Cune Rioja Reserva 2010 Product #29489 (In Stock)
Cune Rioja Reserva 2010 Cune Rioja Reserva 2010

A classically styled Reserva, spicy, juicy, and long.

"Fresh red berries and cherry on the fragrant nose, with spice and floral nuances adding complexity. Juicy and focused, delivering good lift to its sappy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. A zesty mineral quality adds cut to the youthfully tannic, fragrant finish, which clings with serious tenacity."  Vinous 91 points

"The 2010 CUNE Reserva displays a nice bright cherry color and a clean, elegant nose of red fruits. It might be a little backward and require some coaxing to reveal its personality. The medium-bodied palate is quite complete, the tannins are well-coated by the fruit, and it ends with good length and clean flavors. A textbook Reserva. Drink 2014-2019."Wine Advocate 91 points
