Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2016 Product #32789 (In Stock)
Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2016 Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2016

Robert Parker called the 2011 edition of this perennial favorite value red, “Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world.”  The 2016 is as fine and fresh as ever.  This year it blends ripe Garnacha and a splash of Syrah, both 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 flagship 2016 Borsao Garnacha is mostly Garnacha complemented with Syrah. This is also fermented in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and bottled unoaked. The Syrah might give it a little touch and some oomph in the nose, somehow spicy and a touch smoky from the skins of the variety. The palate is fleshy and juicy, very tasty, with unnoticeable tannins. It goes down easily with a velvety sensation. Superb value."Wine Advocate 89 points

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.

Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2016 Product #32441 (In Stock)
Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2016 Palacio De Bornos Verdejo Rueda 2016

Over the past decade in Spain, "Verdejo" has come to be synonymous with "clean, crisp, white wine."  Which is unexpected, since it's only been 20 years or so since the Sanz family launched this estate and led the transformation of Rueda from oxidized, sherry-like, wines to refreshing beauties like this one!

The newest release of this long-time customer and staff favorite is like a richer, less grapefruity, version of Sauvignon Blanc.  Here big aromas of tropical fruit, tangerine, lemongrass and lemon thyme lead to bold flavors of ripe citrus (tangerine, orange, lemon) with a touch of anise and fresh cut grass for interest.  It's smooth and vibrant on the palate with excellent length and a mouthwatering finish that leaves citrus, green melon, and peach skin flavors lingering nicely.  A refreshing white to just sip and even better with Spanish tapas, sushi, or even spicy Cajun shrimp.  And, this weekend, a crazy bargain at these super savings!

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!

La Tremenda Monastrell Alicante 2014 Product #32629 (In Stock)
La Tremenda Monastrell Alicante 2014 La Tremenda Monastrell Alicante 2014

We love bringing you bottles like this – wines that are both deliciously authentic expressions of a grape and place AND carrying the reassuring praise of the international wine press.  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.

"This wine has six months in used 500-liter barrels and a variable time in vat, between six months and one year. The 2014 feels very tender, it has the esparto grass austerity of the stony vineyards with the chalky soils and a myriad of Mediterranean herbs. They used some stems for the fermentation, which added a fine thread and makes it subtly textured. It has the dusty tannins and the saline tastiness of the limestone soils. It represents a superb value and a great introduction to the Monastrell from Alicante; the price is hard to believe."Wine Advocate 92 points

A delicious, fresh and vivid take on Monestrell made from organic grapes and done all in tank. Excellent value, too!

"Dark berries and cherry pit on the nose, lifted by a spicy pepper nuance. Smooth and appealingly sweet, offering plump blackberry and cherry flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Dusty tannins sneak in slowly on the finish, adding closing shape and grip."  Vinous (Raynolds) 89 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.

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 Product #28953 (In Stock)
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

Clua Mas d'En Pol Blanca 2016 Product #32121 (In Stock)
Clua Mas d'En Pol Blanca 2016 Clua Mas d'En Pol Blanca 2016

Xavier Clua crafts this vivid white from Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay and a dash of Sauvignon Blanc grown in the rocky, hard-to-work, vineyards of Terra Alta.  Fermented cool in tank and bottled without ever touching a barrel, it delivers just the right balance of luscious nectarine and tangy pineapple fruit with hints of lemon grass and lime pith.  Round, generous, and mouthfilling, the real excitement here is on the back palate and finish where a burst of selzer, chalk, and briny mineral emerges under the mouthwatering acidity.  A refreshing white you’ll love sipping on the back deck with nibbles and enjoy even more with shellfish, sausage, or paella.  Just a winner all around.

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.

Here's a delicious, fruit-filled, Albarino from 25+ year-old vines grown in the heart of Rias Baixas. Clear as a bell aromas of orange, green peach and orange blossom lead to a nicely fleshy palate of tangerine, peach, white flowers and salty stone.  Finishes generous with crunchy mineral, fresh floral and spice flavors lingering. Fun to drink on it's own and great with seafood or cheese.

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.

Lopez De Haro Rioja Reserva 2012 Lopez De Haro Rioja Reserva 2012

Despite the old-sounding name, this relatively new estate has excelled at delivering traditionally-styled Rioja at bargain basement prices. This is 90% Tempranillo, 5% Granacha and 5% Graciano aged 20 months in mostly used French and American oak casks. 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.

"Peach, lime, honeysuckle and beeswax notes mingle in this round white. Bright and balanced, with a generous texture and a fresh finish. Not forceful, but expressive. Treixadura."Wine Spectator 89 points

Nothing shy about this powerful, rich, nicely oaked red that's ready for sipping and bold foods.

"The 2014 Volver Single Vineyard comes from a parcel of vines planted in 1957 called Finca Los Juncares. It is 100% Tempranillo aged 15 months in French oak and bottled unfiltered. It is a relatively small cuvée of 3,000 cases, but it’s a stunning wine, with notes of unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice and blackcurrants. This opaque purple-colored wine has a full-body, showing toasty notes intermixed with blackberry and cassis. It’s a beauty – an internationally styled, modern version of Tempranillo to drink over the next 5-6 years."Wine Advocate 92 points

New label, but same big blend of Monastrel (65%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), and Alicante, all from high-altitude limestone soils at 900 meters.  Dense and deep in color, it delivers a big burst of blueberry and black raspberry fruit on the nose and in the mouth with accents of crushed stone, smoke and spice.  Full-bodied and fleshy, this stays remarkably pure and balanced through the long, soft, finish.

A robust blend of Garnacha, Syrah and old Cariñena delivers big fruit and flavor.

"This blend of Garnacha, Syrah and old Cariñena is a selection from their best vineyards from a warm and healthy vintage. The different varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel and oak vats. There is a creamy note here with some spices and a core of red and some black fruit. 2015 was a very warm and dry vintage and the wine shows surprisingly fresh for those conditions. There is great harmony and balance here."Wine Advocate 90+ points
