Vina Tondonia Rioja Reserva 2005 Product #32399 (In Stock)
Vina Tondonia Rioja Reserva 2005 Vina Tondonia Rioja Reserva 2005

As classic as they come and about as beautiful as Rioja gets.

"Lovely depth of fruit to this mature red with chocolate, dark tea and bark. Purple flowers and violets. Full and very silky and refined. A beautiful traditional wine to get to know. Drink now."  James Suckling 94 points

"The 2005 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from their vineyards in the meander of the Ebro River, where they have some 100 hectares of vineyards. The wine fermented in the original oak vats that are now some 140 years of age. There is no temperature control and malolactic was also in the vat. The wine was transferred to oak barrels where it slowly matured in their deep, humid caves for no less than six years. After this, it was bottled unfiltered after being fined with egg whites. I think the quality gap between the Reserva and Gran Reserva has been getting smaller since the 2001 vintage and this 2005 is nothing short of exceptional. It's clean and complex, with more freshness. The wine is very spicy and with a palate that feels very balanced, livelier than in the past. It has a long finish where the flavors are clean. Easy to drink and very pleasurable."Wine Advocate 93 points

Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Buon Consiglio 2005 Product #32281 (In Stock)
Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Buon Consiglio 2005 Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Buon Consiglio 2005

"The 2005 Valtellina Superiore Grumello Riserva Buon Consiglio is another wonderfully complete wine. A host of blood orange, white pepper, cranberry, mulling spices and dried flowers lift from the glass. This is one of the most intensely aromatic, exotic wines in the range. Readers should be prepared for a deceptively mid-weight wine that has a lot going on. The 2005 spent 30 days in cask followed by 4 years in cask and cement. The long maceration and aging time results in a wine with more tertiary-leaning aromas and flavors."  Vinous 94 points

Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Product #26196 (In Stock)
Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Drinking beautifully right now, this is a rare "Library" release just received direct from the winery.  A stunning example of maturing Napa Cabernet!

"These wines certainly merit far more attention. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot (585 cases), was aged 24 months in 100% new Taransaud barrels. This is a younger, fresher, less complex style of wine, with loads of loamy soil as well as some volcanic/charcoal/ember-like notes that are vaguely reminiscent of a top Graves from Bordeaux. It is opaque purple, opulent, medium to full-bodied, rich and very satisfying. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. Drink 2015-2030" Wine Advocate 93 points
