    Pago de la Jaraba

    Castilla La Mancha (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Red Meat, Vegetables


    "The 2016 Viña Jaraba Cosecha is produced from a cépages of eighty percent tempranillo and ten percent each of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. It sees only four months in a combination of French and American oak casks prior to racking into tank and eventual bottling. The wine offers up a very good bouquet of black cherries, cassis, a bit of cigar smoke and a nice base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and shows good mid-palate depth, with a bit of backend tannin and good length and grip on the finish. This is not overly complex, but it has depth and plenty of personality and sells for the princely sum of ten dollars a bottle here in the US, so it is an excellent value! 2018-2025+."

  3. New Hacienda Lopez de Haro Rioja Crianza by Bodega Classica 2016

    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.

    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."

    Más Buscados

    Castilla La Mancha (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Ham, Pasta, Red Meat, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    Literally meaning "the most wanted", Vinos Más Buscados is a collection of wines grown and nurtured in the Southern half of Spain, mainly in the area known as La Mancha.

    Ripe blackberry, raspberry and subtle peppery notes, with finely grained tannins and a persistent finish, this is astonishing value.

     

    "Bright and fragrant, the nicely lifted bouquet shows spiced cherry, plum, thyme and floral characters, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that is juicy and vibrant. The wine offers sweet berry flavours with fine texture and a firm finish, making it a great all-rounder for flavoursome dishes. At its best: now to 2020." 90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2017

     

    "Brambly fruit characters, augmented with smoky, spicy secondary notes. In the mouth, a rich, creamy, generous wine, and yet it has great structure, fine tannins, balanced acidity and a long finish. Classy wine at an attractive price." Paul Tudor MW, Metro Magazine Top 50 Wines For 2018

    Oregon (USA)

    Pasta, Red Meat, Risotto, Veal roasted, Vegetables


    Horseshoes & Handgrenades is fruit-driven, full-bodied complex red blend sourced from Southern Oregon and Red Mountain Washington.  The rich, ripe, voluptuous fruit comes from Oregon Syrah with just enough Washington Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to give it complexity and structure.  Think cherry pits and leather whips!

    Bodega Classica

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Duck breast, Pasta, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "Lovely classic nose of sweet blackcurrant, blackberry and cherry fruit with some spice and vanilla notes. There’s also some leather and sweet damson, too. The palate is sweet and concentrated with lovely intensity, still quite a bit of fruit, and some first signs of maturity: undergrowth, prunes, herbs and leather. Very fine."

    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.
