Bodegas Luis Canas Fermentado En Barrica Blanco 2016 Product #32313 (In Stock)
Bodegas Luis Canas Fermentado En Barrica Blanco 2016 Bodegas Luis Canas Fermentado En Barrica Blanco 2016

If you enjoy the rich texture of barrel fermented Chardonnay but crave a bit of Sauvignon Blanc’s citrus fruit, cut, and refreshment during warm Summer months, this delicious, barrel aged, Viura is going to delight.  It's a simply delicious white Rioja that’s bursting with fresh lemon zest, apricot, and lime fruit around a core of lemon custard plus just a touch of exotic fresh coconut nuance.  Give it a little air, and notes of dried grapefruit, beeswax, and honeysuckle emerge on the nose and more citrus peel and spicy ginger come out on the palate and juicy, refreshing, finish.  Every vintage reviewed by Vinous has earned 90 or 91 points - and this is the best yet. Crazy complex and delicious for the price.

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 Aradon Rioja 2016 Bodegas Aradon Rioja 2016

If you think Rioja is all about the oak, then just try this delicious 95% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha beauty made all in concrete.  Big aromas of red cherry and raspberry fruit with floral accents and just a hint of white chocolate lead to juicy, round, mouthfililng flavors and a lightly dry, firm, finish.  Give it a chill and sip on warm afternoons or serve it with party food, burgers, even salmon.

Bodegas Vinsacro Rioja Dioro 2010 Product #31693 (In Stock)
Bodegas Vinsacro Rioja Dioro 2010 Bodegas Vinsacro Rioja Dioro 2010

A delicious wine from an old-fashioned vineyard treated with loving, modern, care. A blend of Temparnillo (50%) Garnacha, Graciano, Mazuelo, Monastrel and Bobal, all planted mixed together in a 70 year-old vineyard at 450-800 meters of altitude and farmed organically.  Dioro represents the best lots from these old vines, aged 12-14 months in new French oak and then further at the winery.  A luxury, $46, wine on release, it’s very much an “affordable luxury” at these prices while it lasts.

"Bright purple. Potent dark berry aromas are complicated by notes of vanilla, pipe tobacco and woodsmoke. Fresh and precise, with densely packed black raspberry and cola flavors that opening nicely with air. Gentle tannins build slowly on the clinging finish, with the raspberry and smoke notes echoing."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91 points

"The 2010 Vinsacro Dioro opens to an explosion of flowers and ripe blueberries that is very perfumed. It feels quite modern and aromatic with well-integrated oak and a luscious palate. This is produced from a field blend they call Vidau, which, in their case it is Garnacha, Tempranillo and a myriad of other grapes like Graciano and even Monastrell. The wine aged in brand new French oak barrels, and it's clearly a high-end wine with aspirations."Wine Advocate 92 points

Gomez Cruzado Rioja Blanco 2015 Product #32177 (In Stock)
Gomez Cruzado Rioja Blanco 2015 Gomez Cruzado Rioja Blanco 2015

True white Rioja that will do  nicely as a Chardonnay-alternative, too!  The secret here is a short stay in barrel for part of the wine and the addition of 15% white Tempranillo, a natural mutation of the black grape that has just been legalized for white Rioja.  The wood is just for texture, not flavor, as the fresh apple and ripe pear flavors shine through and get lift from a squeeze of fresh lime.  Fleshy, round, and full of fruit, this finishes crisp and dry.

Hacienda Tenero Torno Tempranillo 2011 Product #32262 (In Stock)
Hacienda Tenero Torno Tempranillo 2011 Hacienda Tenero Torno Tempranillo 2011

From the small Rioja village of Tornero ("little calf"), this is a screaming value in easy-drinking Rioja.  100% Tempranillo that shows fresh, bright, red fruit and a lush, round, texture.  Spiced red and black fruit flavors on the mid-palate get a complicating dose of herb and smoke on the generous finish.

"Attractive nose of ripe strawberries with peppery and cedary notes. Tobacco, too. Medium to full body, refreshing acidity, juicy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Drink now."  James Suckling 92 points

Bodegas Lan D-12 Rioja Crianza 2013 Product #32338 (In Stock)
Bodegas Lan D-12 Rioja Crianza 2013 Bodegas Lan D-12 Rioja Crianza 2013

A delicious marriage of traditional and modern-style Rioja from Bodegas Lan. This will tempt you with aromas of blackberry jam and ripe plums. There is some intriguing vanilla, clove, and dark chocolate spice here as well. It's mouthfilling and rich, but with a bit of that traditional Tempranillo zing of acidity that will pair well with everything from grilled sausages to hangar steak.

Bodegas Ondarre Rivallana Rioja Crianza 2013 Bodegas Ondarre Rivallana Rioja Crianza 2013

Here's an intense, stylish, Rioja at a very attractive price.  It's 80% Tempranillo plus 10% Garnacha and 5% each Mazuela and Graciano with a full year in French and American oak. Loads of red berry fruit - cherry, strawberry - framed by spicy oak and staying fresh and fruit-forward on through the long, juicy, finish.

"Deep red color. Powerful fruit aromas well-combined with hints of oak aging. On the palate it reveals concentrated, ripe fruit flavors and good structure."  Decanter 95 points

Vina Real Rioja Crianza 2011 Product #31741 (In Stock)

Old-school without hard edges and lovely now.

"Fragrant red berry and candied rose scents, with hints of vanilla and cured tobacco in the background. Silky, sweet and open-knit on entry, but the sappy raspberry and cherry flavors tighten up in the mid-palate. Shows very good clarity and lift on the clinging finish, which is framed by supple, slow-building tannins."  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Crianza 2014 Product #31992 (In Stock)
Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Crianza 2014 Bodegas Luis Canas Rioja Crianza 2014

Wow, is this great, with a pure core of sweet red and black Tempranillo fruit and a just-right dash of oak.

"The Crianza from Luis Cañas is always a textbook example of the category. The 2014 Crianza is no exception, with those sweet lactic aromas, cinnamon and vanilla intermixed with Fruit of the Forest notes. The palate is silky, smooth and supple, a champion in drinkability. It's remarkable that they produce 1.5 million bottles of this wine."Wine Advocate 91 points

Biga De Luberri Rioja 2012 Product #31925 (In Stock)

The new release of this perennial 90-91 pionter (Vinous) is 100% Tempranillo aged for a year in French and American oak.  It's a plump, ripe, almost modern-style wine that features dark, spicy, blackberry, black cherry and plum fruit framed by rich chocolate and savory herb notes.  The fruit stays rich and deep as the wine opens and more layers of wood spice, vanilla and chocolate emerge.  Dry and lightly tannic on the finish, a fun sipper and great match for grilled/roasted food.

This fine estate just keeps going from strength to strength.  "A great Gran Reserva" indeed!

"the 2010 Gran Reserva feels quite integrated and polished, with classical aromas of forest floor, mushrooms, tobacco and red and black berry fruit, all of it in a subtle and harmonious way. The palate feels quite compact, balanced and polished, with fine tannins and very tasty flavors. This is a great Gran Reserva."Wine Advocate 92 points

Vina Tondonia Rioja Reserva 2004 Product #31919 (In Stock)
Vina Tondonia Rioja Reserva 2004 Vina Tondonia Rioja Reserva 2004

An old-school Rioja classic for lamb or rich stews.

"The 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a completely different story. It is a worthy follower of the 2001, the greatest of the Viña Tondonia Reservas of recent times. It has the usual blend and usual levels of alcohol and acidity, bottled after six years in oak barrels. The nose feels savory (if that's possible–umami?) and developed, with tertiary aromas and good balance between spices, leathery notes, cherries and balsamic notes of cigar box and incense. The palate is both round and crisp, with refined tannins. It has very good balance with subtle acidity and very good persistence. 260,000 bottles produced."Wine Advocate 94 points
