Finca Antigua Tempranillo La Mancha 2011 Finca Antigua Tempranillo La Mancha 2011

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

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

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.

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.

Abanico Hazana Rioja Vinas Viejas 2014 Product #31274 (In Stock)
Abanico Hazana Rioja Vinas Viejas 2014 Abanico Hazana Rioja Vinas Viejas 2014

Wine Advocate sums this one up nicely.  A crazy good bargain.

"The 2014 Hazana Vinas Viejas is simply one of the greatest values in Rioja that money can buy. A blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano, this collaboration between importer Eric Solomon and the owner and winemaker has produced an absolutely amazing Rioja from 45- to 70-year-old unirrigated, head-pruned vines. Loads of lead pencil shavings, black and red currants, licorice and tobacco leaf all jump from the glass of this dense, ruby/purple wine. Soft tannins, medium to full body and fabulous intensity, make for a sensational Rioja to drink over the next 5-7 years."Wine Advocate 92 points

Bodegas La Magdalena Sueno Tempranillo 2013 Product #31299 (In Stock)
Bodegas La Magdalena Sueno Tempranillo 2013 Bodegas La Magdalena Sueno Tempranillo 2013

Love the freshness and energy here, with juicy dark fruit given richness by spicy oak and a mellow complexity by a few years in bottle. Fun and tasty!

"A joint venture with one of their American importers, Majuelos de España, the 2013 Sueño (dream) is pure Tempranillo aged for 10 months in a mixture of 225- and 500-liter oak barrels. Inky dark and with a serious nose, this is a great example of a powerful, full-bodied Tempranillo from this zone of La Mancha. It has well-integrated oak, ripe black fruit and a palate with plenty of tannins that will secure a long development in bottle."Wine Advocate 90 points

Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2015 Product #31532 (In Stock)
Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2015 Recorba Ribera Del Duero Tinto 2015

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.

A great value red loaded with big fruit and spice and honest Ribera character.  Plenty of richness and depth with a nice kiss of oak and fine, easygoing, finish.

"Notes of red berries and bare hints of spices, quite fruit-driven and fresh. The palate is light and clean, with fine tannins and very god acidity, tasty and long. This is 95% Tempranillo and 5% Cabernet."Wine Advocate 90 points

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.

Released in 2012, this is now fully mature and open with silky texture and earthy complexity.

"100% tempranillo that was aged in French oak for 12 months. Opaque ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas and flavors of cherry and cassis, with mocha and floral overtones. Lush, palate-coating and gently sweet, with very good finishing cling, soft tannins and resonating spiciness."  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2012 Product #31382 (In Stock)
Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2012 Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2012

This has been a Spanish value staple for years now, and the 2012 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 and the best release yet from this perennial value leader.

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

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

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.

One of Ribera del Duero's elite estates, Pago de Carraovejas makes wines of unusual polish and class for the region.  Like the 93 point 2012, this is a blend of Tempranillo with less than 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and aged in French and American oak.  Sleek and polished, it delivers pure red and black cherry, cut flower, licorice and smoke aromas and flavors and finishes silky and long.

Bodegas Maurodos San Roman Toro 2012 Product #30411 (In Stock)
Bodegas Maurodos San Roman Toro 2012 Bodegas Maurodos San Roman Toro 2012

Terrific Tempranillo with plenty of power and polish. Drink now with a steak or cellar for another decade.

"Sexy, spice-accented dark berry and violet pastille scents are complemented by notes of candied licorice, vanilla and woodsmoke. An undercurrent of smoky minerality gives lift and focus to the juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors, which become spicier and sweeter with air. The spicy quality carries through a sharply focused, subtly tannic, very long finish."  Vinous 93 points

"The 2012 San Román is produced with the fruit of their older vines out of their 96 hectares of vineyards in Toro. They have reduced the amount of the new oak here. The aromas are very mineral of red clay, iron, a mixture of plums, black and red cherries and again something earthy, elegant and complex, developing meaty notes with time. The palate is medium to full-bodied, fresher than 2011, with very fine tannins and very good acidity. This is a superb version of San Román. This is one of the few wines from Toro that actually improves with time in bottle. 93,000 bottles were filled in March 2015."Wine Advocate 94 points

"The polished texture masks depth and muscle in this powerful red. Shows blackberry, anise, tar and mineral flavors, with spicy and floral highlights. Firm tannins and fresh acidity lend good balance. Expressive, in an austere way. Drink now - 2027."Wine Spectator 95 points

La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 2005 Product #31276 (In Stock)
La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 2005 La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 2005

A great vintage for this classic.

"The 2005 Gran Reserva 904 is a superb blend of Tempranillo from the villages of Briñas, Labastida and Villalba with 10% Graciano from Briones and Rodezno. The grapes were destemmed and crushed and fermented in stainless steel for 18 days at 25 C. Malolactic fermentation was spontaneous and lasted 38 days. These wines are marked by a long aging in used American oak barrels following the most strict Riojan tradition; four years during which time the wine was manually racked eight times. This is usually my favorite wine from La Rioja Alta and 2005 is one of its best showings, going back to the quality of the vintages of the 1950s and 60s. The nose is very balsamic with notes of camphor, hints of mint, leather and hung game wrapped around a core of cherries in liqueur. Together it is balanced, subtle, truly elegant and classical. The palate is only medium-bodied but with great concentration of flavors that are very tasty, mineral, almost salty and framed by ultra-fine tannins and smashing balance. A great classic."Wine Advocate 96 points

"One look, one whiff, one taste and you're swooning. This mature, tawny, ready-to-drink gran reserva with aromas of lemon peel, cedar and dried cherry is the epitome of elegance. A juicy, supple palate is highly approachable, while flavors of vanilla, orange peel, saffron and dried plum don't waver on the finish. Drink through 2027."Wine Enthusiast 96 points

Plush and seamless in the mouth, offering sweet blackberry and cherry flavors with complicating notes of clove and mocha. Finishes broad and very long, with an echo of smoky oak and lingering sweetness."   Vinous (Reynolds) 91 points
