Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2015 Product #31194 (In Stock)
Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2015 Bodegas Borsao Garnacha Tinto 2015

Robert Parker called the 2011 edition of this perennial favorite value red, “Possibly the single greatest dry red wine value in the world.”  The 2015 edition is even better, clearly the best release of this all-time value champion we’ve tasted to date.  As always, it’s a blend of 85% Garnacha and 15% Tempranillo, all 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.

"Made entirely in stainless steel tanks. Deep ruby. Aromas of ripe red berries, candied licorice and pungent flowers develop a spicy nuance in the glass. Appealingly sweet cherry, raspberry and floral pastille flavors deepen and expand steadily with aeration. Closes smooth and broad, with repeating spiciness, subtle tannins and very good, fruity tenacity.  Drink 2017 - 2021."  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

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

"Mendoza" is the winemaker's name - this is all Spanish Monestrel, packing a bold punch of flavor with nice, velvety, texture.  A "Tremenda" value!

"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

Enate Somontano Cabernet Merlot 2013 Product #31999 (In Stock)
Enate Somontano Cabernet Merlot 2013 Enate Somontano Cabernet Merlot 2013

We don't see much wine from Spain's Somontano DO in the foothills of the Pyrenees to the east of Campo de Borja.  Warm days and cool nights allow Bordeaux varietals to do well here, as this Cab/Merlot blend demonstrates.  There's generous blackcurrant and dark berry fruit here with a layer of spice from 6 months in barrel.  Finishes spicy and with dark fruit and a hint of cola.  A fine cookout red!

Bodegas Castano Solanera Monastrell VV Yecla 2013 Product #30492 (In Stock)
Bodegas Castano Solanera Monastrell VV Yecla 2013 Bodegas Castano Solanera Monastrell VV Yecla 2013

A big, plush, and super rich red shaped by Australian consulting winemaker Chris Ringland.  No shortage of fruit here but it's balanced by good structure and plenty of spice.

"Even better is the 2013 Solanera is a “Vinas Viejas” that differs from the Castano (100% Monastrell), as this blend is 70% Monastrell, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15 % Grenache, aged 10 months in French and American oak. Another difference from the Hecula is that it was aged equal parts in tank and the other half in French oak. The Solanera, which comes from relatively high-altitude limestone soils at 900 meters, has a dense purple color, a big sweet kiss of blueberry and blackberry fruit mixed with crushed chalk, a full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity, density and richness. The oak is well concealed by the lavish fruit–the wine just amazing. Drink it over the next 2-3 years, as these powerhouses are best consumed in their exuberant and extroverted youth."Wine Advocate 92 points

Bodegas Volver Tempranillo Single Vyd 2014 Product #32462 (In Stock)
Bodegas Volver Tempranillo Single Vyd 2014 Bodegas Volver Tempranillo Single Vyd 2014

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

Hiruzta Getariako Txakolina White 2016 Product #32649 (In Stock)
Hiruzta Getariako Txakolina White 2016 Hiruzta Getariako Txakolina White 2016

A zesty, refreshing, example of this Basque-country specialty from the coastal villages near San Sabastien, Spain. Aromas and flavors hint at orange cream-sickle with a snap of lime, dash of salty mineral and crunch of Granny Smith apple.  There's a gentle, creamy-feeling, fizz that fills your mouth and supports a finish of salty orange and tangerine cream.  Fun with all kinds of shellfish and solo.

Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina White 2015 Product #31021 (In Stock)

With 8 straight 91 point ratings from Vinous, it seems likely the new release is a winner, too!  Vibrant aromas of lime zest, Granny Smith, white flower and chalk lead to zesty flavors of citrus, apricot, passion fruit, and salty mineral that get more powerful with air (and as the light prickle of CO2 blows off).  A tarragon note emerges on the bone dry, energetic finish.  Great choice for shellfish and summer.

Pago Casa Gran Falcata Casa Gran Tinto 2014 Product #32118 (In Stock)
Pago Casa Gran Falcata Casa Gran Tinto 2014 Pago Casa Gran Falcata Casa Gran Tinto 2014

Ripe, powerful, Garnacha Tintorerea (35%), Monastrell (35%) and Syrah (30%) takes to a little wood well, and here this organic estate in Spain’s Valencia region has used French oak with skill and class.  Each grape varietal and vineyard plot is harvested and fermented separately with gentle, all manual, punchdowns for easy extraction of color and very soft tannins.  Then a crane lifts up the small fermenters so the young wine can drain freely and without pumping into tank and (for 50%) into seasoned French oak.

The oak influence shows up as an extra layer of spice, smoke, and chocolate accents to the dark black cherry, cassis and black raspberry fruit aromas you’ll find pouring from the glass.  This is richer, deeper, darker and creamier than the Elegant Tinto, with bold flavors of dark raspberry and baked strawberry fruit wrapped in layers of vanilla, chocolate and sweet spice.  The ripe fruit and oak are nicely balanced by a band of savory minerality and squirt of berry acids for freshness and focus.  The sword this is named for was as long as a man’s arm, and that’s about how long the wine is, too!

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.

Pago Casa Gran Falcata Arenal Tinto 2012 Product #32119 (In Stock)
Pago Casa Gran Falcata Arenal Tinto 2012 Pago Casa Gran Falcata Arenal Tinto 2012

“Arenal” refers to the sandy, free-draining, soils where Pago Casa Gran grows the grapes for this organically farmed blend of Garnacha Tintorera and Monestrell.  “Falcata” is the name of a special sword that was common in Valencia hundreds of years ago.  Each blade was made to measure for an individual warrior, forged and trimmed to be the same length as their arm.  When the fighter died, his blade was buried with him.

Winemaker Carlos Laso crafts his Arenal to reflect the region’s heritage by marrying the purity and elegance of well-drained, sandy, soils with Valencia’s intense ripeness and lots of minerality and spice from 14 months in French oak.  The wine is dark and deeply colored with powerful aromas of ink, dark black raspberry and a hint of mint.  On the palate it fills your mouth with deep dark fruit complicated by accents of earth, licorice, and chocolate.  The firm, powerful, finish makes it easy to see how this will develop over the next 10 years, but there’s no reason you can’t enjoy it now with grilled lamb!

Here's a dark and chocolaty Bordeaux blend with sweet currant and red raspberry fruit framed by notes of earth and expensive tasting oak. A great match for lamb and savory beef dishes!

"A blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 18% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot that matured in new French oak barriques for one year. The nose shows herbal aromas, notes of blackberries and a very faint note of leather, licorice and fountain pen ink. It has a similar character to the Petit Hipperia from the same vintage. The palate is dry, medium-bodied with some rusticity, dusty tannins and a tasty finish."Wine Advocate 90 points

Alonso Angulo Flor De Sanctus 2012 Alonso Angulo Flor De Sanctus 2012

A bold Tempranillo from vineyards 1,000 feet high in Arlanza, a very old and up-and-coming DO just north of Ribera del Duero.  This wine offers an amazing blend of richness and energy, with dark, velvety, fruit lifted by notes of tangy cranberry and dusty mineral.  Tobacco, savory herb and coffee notes unfurl with air and ride over the firm, ripe, tannins.  A great lamb or sipping wine from a producer and region to follow!
