    Bodega Classica

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin: tart red berried fruit, laced with tobacco and dried herbs on the dry, crisp finish. This is a superb classical Rioja Crianza and a stunning value.

    Matsu

    Spain (Spain), Toro (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    Picaro means 'rogue' or 'rascal', and this rapscallion of a wine is a youthful interpretation of the Toro region's style. The grapes come from mature vines of over 50 years of age, but the wine spends only three months in oak, preserving their natural fruit profile. Vivid crimson-purple in the glass. Aromas are of ripe blackberries and raspberries, with subtle hints of fresh cocoa. The palate is bold yet supple, with ripe tannins and a mineral grip. Enjoy on its own or with boldly flavoured pasta dishes or spicy meat skewers.

    Pago de la Jaraba

    Castilla La Mancha (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "The Reserva cuvée from Viña Jaraba is again a blend of seventy percent tempranillo, twenty percent cabernet sauvignon and ten percent merlot, with the wine aged in French and American barrels for twelve months prior to bottling. The wine is evolving very gracefully at age seven, offering up a deep and complex nose of black cherries, cassis, woodsmoke, a nice base of spice elements, just a whisper of the walnuts to come with further bottle age, a bit of chicory and a nice touch of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and resolving, with impressive complexity, a good core and fine length and grip on the classy finish. There is still a bit of tannin here to continue to carry the wine into the future, but it is wide open today and drinking very well indeed. 2018-2035"

    Bodegas Hermanos Peciña

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms


    "I loved the wild character of the young, unoaked 2017 Señorío de P. Peciña Cosecha, mostly Tempranillo with some 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. It had a light maceration and extraction and was kept in tank for two months before bottling. It has a raw and savage nose, mixing raspberry leaf and earthy aromas, full of character with elegant rusticity. It's juicy and chewy, as pure as it gets. I'd love to see this wine in a couple of years. 60,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2017."

    Ribera del Duero (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms


    "Lightly oaked in French and American barrels, this pure Tempranillo comes from Sotillo de la Ribera at 850 metres. It’s a spicy, modern-meets-traditional style with fresh acidity and a balsamic note."

    95 points - Tim Atkin MW, Nov 2018

    "Attractive ripe red-plum, fresh earth and savory complexity, leading to a palate that has a succulent, juicy and fleshy array of ripe cherries, berries and plums. The freshness holds amid ripe tannins. Drink or hold."

    "This polished red is balanced and harmonious, with cocoa, mineral and licorice flavors framing a core of fresh cherry and raspberry fruit. Well-integrated tannins and citrusy acidity keep this lively. Drink now through 2024." - Wine Spectator, April 2018

    Lopez de Heredia

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "The 2006 Viña Bosconia Reserva, always more rustic and powerful than the Viña Tondonia, was cropped from a warm and early harvest and is a blend of Tempranillo with 15% Garnacha and 5% Graciano and Mazuelo. This wine matures in used American oak barrels for five years. It has a very developed nose, and as winemaker Mercedes López de Heredia noted, "It could be confused with a Gran Reserva, as I see it more tertiary and developed." These are amazing wines, clean and complex, with polished tannins and surprisingly good acidity. I have the idea of 2006 as a warmer vintage, but it's not true throughout Rioja; as I've seen with other wines, like the ones from Muga, in this cooler part of Rioja, the vintage was much better. There are some dusty tannins and some flavors that still remind you of fresh fruit."

  7. New Viña Arana Rioja Reserva by La Rioja Alta 2011

    $708.00

    La Rioja Alta

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms


    "Made, as it nearly always is, from Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo, all from Rodezno, this sees 100% older American wood. It has more zip and focus than the Alberdi from the same winery, with impressive underlying structure, savoury bramble and red cherry fruit and classic Rioja Alta sweetness."

    94 points - Tim Atkin MW, April 2018

    "The sleek and polished 2011 Viña Arana is mostly Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo from vineyards in Rodezno and Labastida. The destemmed and crushed grapes fermented in stainless steel followed by a slow malolactic. The wine matured in used, neutral American oak barrels for three years. It's very balsamic, possibly from the extended élevage, with aromas of cigar ash, incense, noble woods, vanilla and cocoa. The palate is polished, with resolved tannins and nice, integrated acidity. 150,000 bottles produced. It's been in bottle since July 2015. They uncorked a bottle of the 1985, and the wine was lively with a developed nose, great complexity and a velvety palate. It's a wine that ages very well." - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

    "A rich and very creamy wine with vanilla and toasted oak. Very flavorful, rich and beautiful. Full body, round tannins and a delicious finish. Decadent. Traditional Rioja style. Drink now."

  8. New Viña Tondonia Rioja Reserva by Lopez de Heredia 2006

    Lopez de Heredia

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Pasta, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms


    "The red flagship 2006 Viña Tondonia Reserva was inspired by the vineyards of the Médoc but produced with local grapes, 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, which achieved 13% alcohol in 2006. It always matures in used American oak barriques for some six years. The oldest of all the reds I tasted, it was also the one with more freshness, which speaks to the quality of the vineyard."

    95 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Feb 2018

    "Very close in quality to the superlative 2005 (an exceptional vintage in Rioja), this is a wonderfully traditional cuvée of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha and 5% each of Graciano and Mazuelo. Silky, balanced, fine and mature with a background whisper of old oak, umami, forest floor and wild strawberry flavours and a chalky freshness that cleans the palate."
