Baron de Funes Garnacha Syrah Carinena 2016 Product #32769 (In Stock)
Baron de Funes Garnacha Syrah Carinena 2016 Baron de Funes Garnacha Syrah Carinena 2016

Some of the best wine values in the world come from hidden nooks and crannies of Spain - like this one!  From an old growing region in Aragon, this is a blend of very old vine Garnacha and Syrah done all in tank.  There's fantastic freshness here - especially for Carinena! - with blackberry and black raspberry fruit at the core and a nice, almost blood orange, note on the back. Easy drinking.

Pago Casa Gran Falcata Blanco 2016 Product #32664 (In Stock)
Pago Casa Gran Falcata Blanco 2016 Pago Casa Gran Falcata Blanco 2016

That the folks at Pago Casa Gran can make balanced, fresh, stylish red wines on the hot, bulk-wine focused, plains of Valencia is surprising enough.  That they could make this utterly delicious, vibrant and aromatic white is pretty absurd!  Here they blend a classic aromatic Spanish white grape - Moscatel (aka the ancient varietal Muscat Blanc) – with France’s Thanksgiving-friendly Gewürztraminer to create a fabulously rich but bone dry beauty.

You'll find a supremely expressive and just a bit wild nose of exotic spice, rose petal and citrus and stone fruit that really jumps out of the glass - even with turkey and pie in the oven, you'll be able to smell this just fine!  Then you'll love how it explodes with flavors of ripe passionfruit, white peach, fresh rose, green plum and spice ranging from ginger to nutmeg to anise.  Best of all, after all that mouth-coating flavor, the wine finishes dry, crisp and minerally, making your mouth water and getting you ready for a big bite of...well, pretty much anything!  Unique, satisfying and delicious.

Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2013 Product #32816 (In Stock)
Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2013 Tres Ojos Old Vines Garnacha Calatayud 2013

Here's an outstanding value from little-known Calatayud in Spain that will do just as well on the bar for a party as it will with roasted meats or robust sausage.  It's based on 85% Garnacha from 40-50 year old bush-trained vines that have to dig deep into their non-irrigated soils for water and nutrients.  About 7% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo add structure and some black fruit notes and a dash of Syrah give meaty spice.

The 2012 edition was one of our best-selling red value favorites, and the new vintage cranks up the intensity and depth even more.  The aromas are robust and fresh, with generous dollops of raspberry, violet and spice (just from the grapes - no oak used at all!).  The flavors follow with more raspberry and sweet cherry fruit, hints of dark chocolate and more spice.  With air, the fruit gets darker and richer, but a touch of citrusy acid and light, crisp, tannins keeps things fresh even as complex flavors of balsamic and baked strawberry linger.  Supple enough for a party, structured enough for most anything you’ll pull off the grill, and a steal of a deal, too!

This was a delightful find last spring when we had it pegged as the best burger wine value for summer of 2017 and even more delicious in the fall.  Now, as the weather (finally!) gets ready to warm up again, this 100% Monestrell (Mourvedre in France) from all organic grapes is even better.  It’s a rich and fruity red with good heft and a gentle earthy complexity.

"Put this on your shopping list: The bargain red wine of the year...If you’re looking for a summer house red, this is an ideal candidate and a good match for burgers and steaks from the grill. It’s made from monastrell (known as mourvedre in France), and features dark cherry and dried fig flavors with hints of black olive, tea and tobacco. Made from organically grown grapes. This may be the best $10 red I’ve tasted in a long time."  2.5/3 Stars The Washington Post and Value Wine of the Year

“A dense and oaky nose with high spice and bright earthy beetroot. The palate is authentic and characterful with blueberry fruit and a pleasing creaminess reminiscent of raspberry ripple ice cream.”  Decanter Magazine 91 points

La Tremenda Monastrell Alicante 2016 Product #33283 (In Stock)
La Tremenda Monastrell Alicante 2016 La Tremenda Monastrell Alicante 2016

The grape here is Monastrell, better known to many as France’s Mourvedre in its starring role in Bandol and Ch Beaucastel’s Chateauneuf du Pape.  On the high plains of Spain’s Alicante region and under the care of the committed traditionalists at Enrique Mendoza, this marries rich ripeness of fruit with earthy, herbal, complexity and a finish that’s long, firm, but still very easy to enjoy.  Sure, it’s built to pair with rich stews and savory roasted and grilled meats.  But the ripe fruit and silky finish will give plenty of pleasure before the food ever hits the table.

"Their entry-level Monastrell is already the 2016 La Tremenda is sourced from the vineyard that names the wine, from their estate El Chaconero in the village of Villena, a plot at 600 meters altitude planted some 25 years ago. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French barriques for six months. 2016 is a cooler year than 2014 or 2015, and the wines reflect it. It was not an easy year; they had to do a strict selection of grapes, and it paid off. It has the character of the variety, with its elegant rusticity with a fresh, herbal twist and a palate with fine-grained tannins, nicely textured and with a supple, very tasty finish. This is a superb introduction to Monastrell from Alicante at an incredible price. 50,000 bottles produced."Wine Advocate 92 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.

Herencia Altes Garnacha 2016 Product #33115 (In Stock)
Herencia Altes Garnacha 2016 Herencia Altes Garnacha 2016

100 year-old vine complexity at a steal of a price. A regular "Best Buy" and 90 point winner, the  2016 is especially delicious.  Big aromas of red currant, strawberry, blood orange and crushed flowers lead to juicy, fresh, flavors of ripe fruit and dark chocolate.  Finishes silky and pure with fine tannins and length.  As Josh Raynolds said of the 2013, "Finding a wine with this much clarity and precision is a tough job at double and even triple the price of this one."

"Bright and floral with poached strawberry and raspberry fruits. The palate has plenty of deep-set flavor in a fine-boned frame."  James Suckling 91 points

Duquesa De Valladolid Verdejo Rueda 2016 Duquesa De Valladolid Verdejo Rueda 2016

Rioja's Bodegas LAN runs this fine estate in the nearby white wine country of Rueda.  This is a classic, 100% Verdejo, picked ripe and fermented cool in stainless steel. Bold aromas and flavors of ripe orange and tangerine gain complexity from a squirt of white grapefruit juice just a touch of bitter pith. With a generous fruit and citrus oil finish, it's a terrific sipper and seafood match.

Usoa De Bagordi Rioja Rosado 2017 Product #33243 (In Stock)
Usoa De Bagordi Rioja Rosado 2017 Usoa De Bagordi Rioja Rosado 2017

If you think Spanish rose has to be dark, fat and a little syrupy, then you've got to try this beauty.  It's 100% Garnacha, picked while the acids are still fresh, allowed to soak on the skins for 18 hours and then pressed off for fermentation in tank. It's full of Sangria-like fruit - cherry, strawberry, green melon- and shows a creamy, round, texture in the middle. Then tart Granny Smith apple and a squeeze of lemony citrus clean things up on the dry, brisk, finish.  Very fun.

Burgo Viejo Rioja Old Vine Garnacha 2016 Product #33397 (In Stock)

Proving there's more to Rioja than Tempranillo, this 100% Grenache delivers ripe, plump, strawberry fruit and an easygoing, dry, finish. Fun with BBQ and would do nicely with chocolate, too! Chill it a bit for maximum fun.

"Ripe wild raspberry and cassis fruits that are really brambly and expressive. The palate is all raspberry with smooth tannins and gently tangy appeal."  James Suckling 90 points

Cellars Unio Perlat Syrah 2014 Product #32525 (In Stock)
Cellars Unio Perlat Syrah 2014 Cellars Unio Perlat Syrah 2014

Not the fanciest of wines, but a good example of what Syrah does on the cracked slate hills of Spain's Montsant region.  Normally used to blend with Garnacha and Carignan, here it shines on its own with fine ripness and fruit tempered by 12 months in neutral oak. 

"Vivid ruby. Aromas of dried cherry, cassis and licorice, plus a hint of smokiness in the background. Gently sweet black and blue fruit flavors are enlivened by a peppery element that builds as the wine opens up. Closes on a bitter note, with dusty tannins adding grip and a slightly stern edge."  Vinous (Raynolds) 87 points

Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV Bohigas Cava Brut Reserve NV

There's an element of class and style here you just don't often find in value-priced bubbles.  Authentic, delicious, and very well-priced.

"A family-owned winery whose origins date back to the 13th century, Fermi Bohigas owns over 240 acres of organically farmed vineyards in Catalunya. Made from a classic blend (for this area) of Xarel-lo, Macabeo and Parellada planted in limestone and clay soils, the wine spends 24 months on its lees before disgorgement. It is an excellent value for consumers looking for alternatives to French Champagne. Lemon/lime, crushed rock and white currant notes are present in this crisp, elegant, refreshing, zesty, dry sparkler. Hints of wheat thins and brioche add complexity. Enjoy this medium-bodied offering over the next 1-2 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

A classic Manzanilla sherry - like a fresh and salty Fino but with more salty minerality.  Green olive and fresh almond scents carry through on the palate and are joined by exotic notes of honeysuckle, fresh herb, and loads of salty seashell.  Finishes bone dry and crisp and very long.

One of Spain's greatest white wine values, this rich, deep, Verdejo comes from old vines - some as old as 115 years!  Spicy pear, peach, and tangerine fruit on the nose and palate gain extra complexity from hints of honey, white flowers, and citrus pith.  A bold tangerine note wells up on the dry, mineral, finish.  A great seafood wine, delicious, and fun to drink!

Even better than the Vinous 90 point 2015, this is pure Mencia deliciousness from the obscure Monterrei DO in Galicia.  Explosively scented with crushed violets, fresh cherry and juicy black raspberry plus just a hint of licorice. Vigorous dark berry flavors turn spicy on the mouthwatering palate where power and finesse blend perfectly.  A stupid delicious quaffer and table setter.

Despite the old-sounding name, this relatively new estate has excelled at delivering traditionally-styled Rioja at bargain basement prices.

You'll see the time in wood by the pale rim and feel it in the smooth, rounded, mouthfeel.  Dark black fruit aromas and flavors are complicated by notes of sweet spice, balsamic, and a hint of vanilla.  Finishes smooth and earthy with fine complexity.

Familia Montana Reserva Rioja 2012 Familia Montana Reserva Rioja 2012

From a very old Rioja family that has somehow avoided the limelight - at least until now!  Because they've grown fruit in Rioja since the late 19th Century, their vineyards show a fairly high vine age and they've clung to their old-school, square-edged, bottle.  The old vines give good richness to this Tempranillo with 3% Graciano for spice.  The 12 months in French oak shows as a chocolaty spice to the dark black plum and blackberry fruit.  Plush, rich and spicy and ready to drink today (or for a decade).
