Bargain Tempranillo!

"Aged for three months in three-year-old French and American oak barrels. Bright ruby. Fresh cherry and dark berries on the nose, with hints of vanilla and woodsmoke building with air. Juicy and seamless on the palate, offering gently sweet blackberry and cherry flavors and a touch of mocha. A floral nuance come up on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with good spicy persistence. Lots of bang for the buck here."  Vinous (Raynolds) 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.

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

"Pungent aromas of redcurrant and dried cherry. Peppery and nicely focused, offering bitter cherry and dark chocolate flavors and a sweetening touch of vanilla. Dusty tannins give shape to the rather rigid finish, with the cherry note echoing."  Vinous (Reynolds) 87 points

Bobal De Sanjuan Vinas Viejas 2012 Bobal De Sanjuan Vinas Viejas 2012

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

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 Garnacha Tintorera 2014 Product #31687 (In Stock)

What the Spanish call Garnacha Tintorera, the French call Alicante Bouschet, the red-fleshed crossing of Garnacha and Petit Bouschet in 1866.  Here it's delivering plenty of Grenache-like fruit - think oven-warmed cherry and strawberry - with extra complexity from Bouschet's characteristic herbal, savory, character.  No oak here, so lots of ripe and juicy primary fruit that courses across your palate towards a chalky, dusty, finish.  Fun sipper and with food.

Lora Verdejo Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Product #31718 (In Stock)

This is a GREAT party white with the heft to warm you up in winter and zestiness to chill you you in summer.  From organic grapes grown within sight of the windmills of La Mancha, this bursts with tangerine and sweet pink grapefruit aromas that carry on to the ripe, deeply flavored, palate.  A touch of grapefruit oil adds interest in the middle and dashes of herb and grapefruit and tangerine peel elevate the bright, refreshing, finish.  Delicious, fun, and punching well above it's price point.

Bodegas Virgen De La Sierra Macabeo Albada 2015 Product #30902 (In Stock)
Bodegas Virgen De La Sierra Macabeo Albada 2015 Bodegas Virgen De La Sierra Macabeo Albada 2015

Better known under it's Rioja name of Viura, Macabeo flies under the radar as a main or blending grape in white Rioja, Cava, and other regional wines.  British Master of Wine Jancis Robinson has dubbed it "the Cinderella grape" in recognition of the way Macabeo is coming out of the shadows now and being allowed to shine on it's own.

This is a fine example from 35 year-old vines in Calatayud, not far from Rioja. You'll find Macabeo's signature notes of peach, orange, and almond here lifted by a note of juicy lemon.  Rich and creamy on the palate with good weight and a nice, refreshing, dusty minerality on the generous finish.  This will be especially delicious with fresh water fish done with butter and nuts or even with richer dishes like salmon.

Bodegas Castano Solanera Monastrell VV Yecla 2013 Product #30492 (In Stock)
Bodegas Castano Solanera Monastrell VV Yecla 2013 Bodegas Castano Solanera Monastrell VV Yecla 2013

"Even better is the 2013 Solanera is a “Vinas Viejas” that differs from the Castano (100% Monastrell), as this blend is 70% Monastrell, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15 % Grenache, aged 10 months in French and American oak. Another difference from the Hecula is that it was aged equal parts in tank and the other half in French oak. The Solanera, which comes from relatively high-altitude limestone soils at 900 meters, has a dense purple color, a big sweet kiss of blueberry and blackberry fruit mixed with crushed chalk, a full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity, density and richness. The oak is well concealed by the lavish fruit–the wine just amazing. Drink it over the next 2-3 years, as these powerhouses are best consumed in their exuberant and extroverted youth."Wine Advocate 92 points

Telmo Rodriguez Gaba Do Xil Godello 2015 Product #31627 (In Stock)
Telmo Rodriguez Gaba Do Xil Godello 2015 Telmo Rodriguez Gaba Do Xil Godello 2015

One of Spain's best winemakers has turned out a stellar example of one of the country's most unique grapes:  Godello.  One of Spain's best winemakers has turned out a stellar example of one of the country's most unique grapes:  Godello.  This is from very old vine vineyards, so while it's mainly Godello, there are probably other grapes mixed in as well.  The steeply sloped granite soils allows this rich and deep wine to maintain freshness even in the warm 2015 harvest.

"Aromatic nose of green and yellow apples, apple skin and some ethereal cream notes. Full body, a round and silky texture and bright acidity."  James Suckling 93 points

Finca Valldosera Cava MS 4.7 Brut Nature NV Product #23945 (In Stock)
Finca Valldosera Cava MS 4.7 Brut Nature NV Finca Valldosera Cava MS 4.7 Brut Nature NV

Want to have a little fun?  Serve the Finca Valldosera Cava MS 4.7 Brut Nature blind to a Champagne lover.  They'll swear it's a top quality NV Champagne - and probably won't believe you when you tell them what you paid! Stunningly sophisticated, you'll find classic Champagne notes of brioche and toast plus notes of fennel and licorice.  Clean, crisp, and oh-so-elegant, this dances on the palate and delivers a long, complex, finish laden with toast and a hint of licorice. The beautiful color and fine bead keep you thinking Champagne.  The review below is from a releases ago, but still spot on!

"The Non-Vintage MS 4.7 Gran Reserva Brut Nature is the same blend as the Brut Nature cuvee but was selected from the estate’s best vineyards and spent 30 months sur lie. A bit deeper in color and more refined aromatically, it reveals an alluring palate of lemon-lime, toasted almonds, and floral notes. Mouth-filling and impeccably balanced, this superb Cava is an outstanding value meant for drinking over the next 2-3 years."Wine Advocate 91 points

Envinate Benje Tinto Tenerife 2015 Envinate Benje Tinto Tenerife 2015

This very hot collaboration's first red from Tenerife blends 70-120 year-old Listan Prieto with a bit of Tintilla.  Pretty much the definition of a "savory" wine here, with tangy cherry, tea, and a bit of funk on the nose and palate, mouthwatering acids and a fine dusting of tannin under the squirt of fresh cherry juicy on the finish. This will shine with mussels, shrimp, or chicken and mushrooms.

Envinate Lousas de Aldea Ribera Sacra Galicia 2014 Product #31160 (In Stock)
Envinate Lousas de Aldea Ribera Sacra Galicia 2014 Envinate Lousas de Aldea Ribera Sacra Galicia 2014

The story is complex, the region obscure, the wine astonishingly good. Four friends who met in wine school formed first a consultancy and then a winery, Envinate.  Each partner specializes in wines from different areas of Spain, including the Canary Islands, Tenerife and Ribeira Sacra in Galicia.  Lousas is from Ribeira and blends the region's best red grape, Mencia, with 10% of other local varieties (Merenzao, Brancellao, Caíño, Sousón, Mouratón, Alicante Bouschet/Garnacha Tintorera and others).  The grapes come from multiple vineyards, are harvested at different times, and ferment and age in a range of well-seasoned casks of all kinds of sizes before blending.

The 2014 is loaded with exotic aromas and flavors - cut flowers and sandalwood spice - to go with the super fresh and ripe red berry fruit.  Juicy, pure, complex, and long, this is going to sing with almost anything you put on the table (bet it's delish with fish!) and excite on its own as well.  Please, give this a try.

"Their regional wine, the 2014 Lousas Viñas de Aldea is from their third vintage in Ribeira Sacra, and the third cool vintage in a row, with some rain but with healthy grapes. These are wines of freshness and elegance, their best to date. This is mostly Mencía with some 10% other reds (Merenzao, Brancellao, Caíño, Sousón, Mouratón, Alicante Bouschet/Garnacha Tintorera...) from a diversity of vineyards ranging from 15 to 60 years of age, at 400 to 600 meters altitude in different subzones of Ribeira Sacra. The different vineyards had different ways of fermenting, sometimes with full clusters, some not, but always in small open top containers. The wine matured in a collection of well-seasoned 225- , 228-, 350-, 400- and 500-liter oak barrels with the lees for some 11 months without racking. The nose is really open and floral, with notes of acid berries denoting great freshness. The nose unfurls and shows more complexity, dry rose petals, wet stones, and spices. This is a superb example of approachable, drinkable Ribeira Sacra."Wine Advocate 93 points

Bodegas Alto Moncayo Veraton 2013 Bodegas Alto Moncayo Veraton 2013

Aussie Chris Ringland gives this ripe and gutsy Garnacha a touch of polish and style from time in French oak.

Aged for 17 months in new French and American oak barrels. Opaque purple. Assertive black and blue fruit and licorice pastille scents are brightened by a hint of cracked pepper. Supple and sweet on the palate, offering plush blueberry and cassis flavors and an exotic violet pastille quality. Blends richness and vivacity smoothly and closes on a gently tannic note, with very good focus and persistence."  Vinous (Reynolds) 91 points

"Ripe cranberry and boysenberry flavors mingle with vanilla, licorice and toast notes in this expressive red. The plush texture is supported by light, firm tannins and lively acidity. Drink now through 2020. 3,000 cases made."Wine Spectator 90 points
