    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.

    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

    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."

    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."

    Hacienda Monasterio

    Ribera del Duero (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "A superb vintage in the region has produced a great 2014 Reserva, a wine where they select grapes from the soils with more limestone within their estate. A blend of 80% Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has good ripeness, power and freshness, coming through as a textbook Reserva. It's still young and lively after an élevage in French barrels (40% of them new) for some 20 months. This was inspired by some wines from Bordeaux, even though it has a somewhat more Mediterranean profile... The palate of this 2014 is better than the nose at the moment. Sisseck compared 2014 to 1995, an almost perfect year in the region."

    94 points - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, Aug 2018

    "Hacienda Monasterio tends to make its best wines in cool vintages like 2014. Combining Tempranillo with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is fresh and leafy with notes of green herbs and aromatic coffee bean oak."

This deep ruby red grape is grown in most areas of Spain. One exception is the southern area where temperatures tend to be higher for most of the year. An interesting fact about this grape is how many names it goes by in Spain alone. The Tempranillo is known as the Cencibel in La Mancha while those in Ribera del Duero know it as the Tinto Fino. Whatever the name, the grape is so popular that it is used in roughly 70% of the red blends produced in Navarra and Rioja. The flavor of the red wine produced from the grape has a slightly smoky taste that is somewhat like that of tobacco. There’s also a slightly spicy hint of flavor that enhances the underlying strawberry and red cherry tastes. While some prefer to drink the wine while it is still young, others prefer the results of allowing it to age in oak barrels for several years.
