  1. $239.70

    Lopez de Heredia

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "This savoury, spicy blend of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha and 5% each of Mazuelo and Graciano has plenty of weight, with an undertone of balsamic complexity. 2018-25"

    93 points - Tim Atkin MW, Feb 2018

    "The red they say was born to go with tapas and sold in local restaurants is the 2009 Viña Cubillo Tinto Crianza. 2009 was a warm and ripe year, and this blend of Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha (or the masculine Garnacho they like to use) plus 5% each Graciano and Mazuelo from limestone soils with quite a lot of clay, feels juicy and soft. It fermented with natural yeasts in large oak vats and matured in used barriques for three years. This is a bottling that has grown and improved a lot since 2004-2005. It shows very good balance between fruit and more developed aromas, with hints of leather and cherries, spices and smoke, very clean and with good volume in the palate. It's usually a little riper and with higher alcohol than Tondonia or Bosconia, with the character, finesse and elegance of a classical Reserva. 93,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2013."

    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.

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    100% Viura from 50-80 year-old vines near San Vicente de la Sonsierra in Rioja Alta and aged for 2 months in French oak barrels. White fruit and flowers on the nose, following through on the palate with riper fruit, good stucture, freshness and complexity. Long, pleasant finish. This wine is a steal!

    Best Buy - Peñín Guide 2019

    "A wine that came to my notice thanks to the 10 x 10 tasting in London, this is a leesy, subtly oaked Viura with plenty of zip and perfume, crunchy acidity and a sprinkling of white pepper to embellish the citrus and pear fruit flavours. 2018-21"

    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."

  5. $419.40

    Bodega Classica

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Aged for 30 months in French and American oak barrels. Bright cherry-red colour, complex on the nose with coffee and vanilla integrated into an intense bottom note of ripe fruit. Elegant and round on the palate, well balanced with a velvety attack followed by a pleasant acidity and a silky full-bodied finish.

    "High-toned and polished, this wine takes some time to reveal its umami savor. It turns smoky with notes of old oak and austere tannins, the structure filled with scents of piquillo peppers, forest mushrooms and red cherries. Pour it with a hearty braise of lamb and mushrooms."

    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."

  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."
