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.

Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2012 Product #27878 (In Stock)
Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2012 Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2012

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.

“Expressive aromas of black raspberry, violet and white pepper. Supple, spicy and pliant, with an appealingly sweet quality to the dark berry, spice and floral flavors. Plenty of personality here, especially at the price. Finishes on a refreshingly bitter note, with silky tannins and very good persistence.” International Wine Cellar 89 points

“If you have not yet discovered the great values of Bodegas Borsao, it’s about time you do. The 2012 Borsao Tinto, is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Tempranillo aged in stainless steel. Made in the fourth straight drought vintage in the province of Zaragoza, this has been a big-time winner in just about every vintage it has been produced. A delicious black cherry, crushed chalk and flower-scented nose jumps from the glass of this richly fruity, medium to full-bodied, supple, velvety-textured red. This mouthfilling 2012 should drink well for several years.”Wine Advocate 89 points

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.

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

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.

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

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

Antxiola Txakoli 2013 Product #28262 (In Stock)
Antxiola Txakoli 2013 Antxiola Txakoli 2013

Txakoli is a fresh, zippy style of wine from Spain’s Basque country.  Like Vinho Verde, it’s just slightly fizzy, but not fully sparkling.  But unlike its Portuguese cousin, it’s bone dry, bracingly tart, and very mineral, with aromas of lime skin and something fresh and salty reminiscent of the beach.  This great value Txakoli is a natural match for fresh seafood - or try it with sushi!

Bodegas Naia Verdejo Rueda 2013 Bodegas Naia Verdejo Rueda 2013

Another great vintage for this benchmark Rueda Verdejo from old vines (30-90 years) with about 10% of the wine aged in French oak.  Intense aromas of lemon, lime, smoky mineral and fresh herb lead to a mouthful of round orchard fruit - peach, apricot, yellow apple - with accents of fresh flowers and a touch of pear.  Long on the palate and juicy finish where peach and pear skin notes linger nicely over citrusy acids.

Finca Sandoval Salia 2010 Finca Sandoval Salia 2010

Another great release here!

"Pungently aromatic, with powerful aromas of cassis, smoky minerals, cracked pepper, violet and olive. Deeply pitched dark berry flavors show a blend of power and vivacity and become sweeter with air. Spicy notes build on the finish, which is chewy, gently tannic and long. Definitely give this wine some air."International Wine Cellar 90+? points

"The 2010 Salia, a blend of 49% Syrah, 30% Garnacha Tintorera and 21% Garnacha Tinta, was aged 11 months in French and American oak, and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. This beautiful, dense purple-colored 2010 exhibits a meaty note of beef blood intermixed with attractive, round, supple black fruits, bouquet garni and licorice. Full-bodied, rich, distinctive and complex with a heady finish, its Syrah component no doubt provides the beefy character. Drink it over the next 2-3 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Finca Sandoval Manchuela 2008 Product #27978 (In Stock)
Finca Sandoval Manchuela 2008 Finca Sandoval Manchuela 2008

When journalist Victor de la Serena decided it was time to make wine, rather than just write about it, he decided to do things right.  Working in the hot, dry, Spanish wine region of Manchuela, he purchased Syrah and Mourvedre cuttings from his favorite winery, the great Chateau Beaucastel in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and planted those along with a little of the region’s native Bobal.  High-density plantings and meticulous dropping of fruit gave him low yields and careful winemaking with just the right mix of oak delivered a wine with a little modern polish but lots of authentic gutsiness and heart.  The 2008 is ready to go now or anytime over the next 5-8 years.  Our best price ever on this bold, blockbuster, red.

"76% syrah, 13% mourvedre and 11% bobal, planted on chalky soil; aged in 85% French and 15% American oak that ranged from new to three years old. Bright purple. Spicy, highly fragrant nose features perfumed blackberry, violet and orange peel, with hints of smoke and black olive. Really showing the syrah now. Dense, sappy and chewy but surprisingly lithe; the intense red and dark berry and floral pastille flavors are at once taut and rich, thanks to zesty minerality. Finishes very suave and long, with fine-grained tannins and lingering spiciness.” International Wine Cellar 92 points

Raventos I Blanc Silencis 2012 Product #28014 (In Stock)
Raventos I Blanc Silencis 2012 Raventos I Blanc Silencis 2012

From a new-school Spanish sparkling wine producer trying to bring up the reputation of sparkling wine comes this unique (and still!) Xarelo.  Silencus comes from a blend of 5 different old-vine vineyard sites and is meant to express facets of the grape not usually seen in the inexpensive Cava that usually makes its way to the US.  The acidity is bracing here, and the aromas of pithy lemon and sea air will thrill any lover of crisp Loire Valley whites.  On the palate that briny quality is front and center, making this a natural pairing with any seafood dish.  Unique and fabulous!

Finca Sobreno Especial 2009 Finca Sobreno Especial 2009

A majestic Tempranillo from Toro from 50+ year-old vines.  Rich, powerful, and redolent of traditional American oak.

"Deeply pitched aromas of blackberry, violet, smoky oak and mocha. Then sweet, broad and lush on the palate, with explosive dark berry flavors complicated by vanilla, mocha and a floral nuance. Finishes with big, broad, supple tannins and superb length. This exotic, large-scaled wine shows surprising energy and focus for its heft."International Wine Cellar 92 points

"The 2009 Finca Sobreno Reserva – Seleccion Especiale is a blend of the estate’s best vineyard (over 50 years in age) and sees half the fruit aged in 14 months in new American oak, the remainder in used oak. It has a lifted floral bouquet of dark berries, briary and dried violets that is well-defined and seductive. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent entry of dark cherries, balsamic, a hint of orange peel and cloves. There is good structure and focus present here, with a clean fresh, focused finish. It is very fine and very elegant for a Toro red. Drink now-2019+"Wine Advocate 93 points
