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

There's no one named "Lopez" involved with this project and the winery isn't located in the town of Haro.  But the quality from this relatively new project has bee nothing short of astounding through its first set of releases.  The 2008 Rioja Crianza (all Tempranillo) 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

Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2014 Montebuena Rioja Cuvee KPF 2014

Always delicious and especially elegant.

"A sensational value from Spain, this 100% Tempranillo from Rioja Alavesa has a deep ruby color and a fragrant nose of new saddle leather, unsmoked cigar tobacco, and red and black cherries, followed by a seductive, lovely mouthfeel with no hard edges. It is medium-bodied, pure and best drunk over the next several years."Wine Advocate 87 points

Ijalba Rioja Viura Genoli Blanco 2014 Product #30627 (In Stock)
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!

Bodegas Lan Crianza 2012 Product #31151 (In Stock)
Bodegas Lan Crianza 2012 Bodegas Lan Crianza 2012

An old favorite gets a snazzy new label but keeps the old-school style and quality intact.  It's 95% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo selected from 10 to 20 year-old vines aged 18 months in barrels with American oak staves and French oak tops/bottoms.  Lots of sweet red fruit plus accents of spice and vanilla show on the nose and palate and linger on the nicely juicy finish.

Bodegas Izadi Rioja Blanco 2013 Product #31016 (In Stock)
Bodegas Izadi Rioja Blanco 2013 Bodegas Izadi Rioja Blanco 2013

A lovely example of white Rioja with just a kiss of oak to go with the dense texture and ripe, lemony fruit.

"A blend of Viura with 20% Malvasía fermented in new oak barrels where it aged in contact with the lees with frequent bâttonage for three months. The nose is quite serious and balanced showing moderate effect of the yeasts and oak, waxy aromas of apples, hints of honeycomb, fennel and licorice. The palate is quite fresh and surprisingly fruit-driven with good acidity and clean flavors. It's approachable and should also be able to age and improve in bottle for a few years. Quite impressed!"Wine Advocate 90 points

Lopez De Haro Rioja Gran Reserva 2008 Product #30107 (In Stock)
Lopez De Haro Rioja Gran Reserva 2008 Lopez De Haro Rioja Gran Reserva 2008

A fascinating Rioja Gran Reserva that shows both the earthy, spicy, maturity of long barrel aging and a surprising dose of fresh, juicy, fruit.  Old-vine Tempranillo and tangy Graciano aged 30 months in oak and then 3 years in bottle.  Complex aromas of coffee, vanilla, balsamic, herb and bright berry fruit.  Silky on the palate with aged wine notes of caramel, herb, and spice plus a burst of blackberry and cherry fruit.  Finishes long and spicy.

Bodegas Lan Rioja Reserva 2008 Bodegas Lan Rioja Reserva 2008

So reliable, with fine richness and chocolte and spice accents.

"The 2008 Reserva shows good concentration and fresh aromas of an Atlantic vintage, with quite a traditional profile displaying notes of red fruit, spices, leather and dill, and a medium-bodied palate with intense and clean flavors and a supple finish. This great Reserva wears an attractive price tag. Drink 2014-2018."Wine Advocate 91 points

Bodegas Laukote Rioja Vendimia Seleccionada 2010 Product #27282 (In Stock)
Bodegas Laukote Rioja Vendimia Seleccionada 2010 Bodegas Laukote Rioja Vendimia Seleccionada 2010

Norberto Miguel only makes this, his top wine, in selected vintages of exceptional ripeness and quality.  It’s from 80+ year-old Tempranillo vines planted by Norberto’s grandfather and grown on the rocky, barren, soils of Rioja Alavesa.  Norberto hand-harvests the grapes when they taste good to him and then crushes them gently by foot to extract plenty of color and flavor without getting harsh tannins from the stems or seeds.  After vinification the wines go into American and French oak barrels (about 30% new)  And there the wine sits until Norberto thinks it’s ready – not one day longer.

The result is just about the perfect marriage between Rioja tradition and modern winemaking sensibility.  In 2010, this wine is just fabulous, supple and mineral with excellent length and very little obvious oak.  Scents of black raspberry and plum fruit accented by notes of sweet spice, tobacco, violets and a touch of iron.  In the mouth, the wine is very pure and elegant, with focused dark fruit and spice lifted by a hint of tangy cherry acidity and supported by silky smooth, ripe, tannins.  With air, a touch of coffee/mocha emerges and fruit broadens, but the minerality and acidity keep the wine focused, pure, and beautiful.  Drink it now with roasted or grilled meats and enjoy how it gains even more layers over the next 8-10 years in cellar.  Outstanding value for a Rioja of this quality and grace.

Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2008 Product #30720 (In Stock)
Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2008 Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Gran Reserva 2008

"Ruby-red. A highly perfumed bouquet displays aromas of fresh red and dark berries, pipe tobacco and peppery spices, with subtle licorice and floral nuances adding complexity. Smoky, deeply pitched blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by a mineral note that adds back end nerviness. Gentle tannins shape the finish, which shows very good clarity and lingering florality."  Vinous (Reynolds) 91 points
