Altovinum "Evodia" Calatayud Garnacha 2014

90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
90 Wine Advocate
(7/2015) "This blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah aged in concrete and demi-muid is a custom cuvée from importer Eric Solomon. Made from very old head-pruned vines that are not irrigated in pure slate soils, some of the vines are close to 100 years of age. This is really an amazing wine for the price. It is a fruit bomb, so those not wanting flavor, or in search of wimpy wines need to consider a light beer. Deep ruby/plum purple, with loads of blueberry and black currant fruit, underlying crushed rock notes and some floral scents are all present in this remarkable wine that sells at a full retail markup of $10.00, which is simply incredible! These are the kind of wines I wish had existed when I was in college."

Bodegas Breca "Garnacha de Fuego" Calatayud Garnacha 2014

90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(1/2016) "(aged in stainless steel and concrete tanks): Dark purple. Deeply pitched cherry, cassis and pipe tobacco aromas are brightened by floral and peppery spice qualities. Cherry compote and plum jam flavors coat the palate, with juicy acidity providing shape and back-end cut. Gains focus as well as depth with air and finishes sweet, smooth and quite long, with fine-grained tannins adding grip. Pretty serious in style for a Garnacha and a seriously great value as well."

Bodegas Bula "Bula" Montsant 2013

90+ Our Score
90 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(9/2014) "(50% carinena, 30% garnacha and 20% syrah; aged for four months in French and American oak): Brilliant ruby. Bright red fruits on the nose, with peppery spices and a floral pastille element adding nuance. Deep and appealingly sweet but energetic too, with good energy and lift to its raspberry and bitter cherry flavors. Silky tannins build slowly on the long, pliant finish, with the floral note echoing."

Bodegas Casa Castillo Jumilla Monastrell 2013

We've just reloaded on this overdelivering Spanish gem!
91 Wine Advocate
(6/2014) "Considered by many observers to be the finest estate in Jumilla, Casa Castillo is a treasure-trove for fabulous values, particularly from the Monastrell (Mourvedre) grape that loves the chalky terroirs and cool slopes of the Sierra del Molar. Yields for the 2013 Monastrell (100% Monastrell aged six months in neutral French oak barrels, concrete and foudres) were 16 to 25 hectoliters per hectare, which is about half of that permitted in Burgundy. An amazing value, this wine boasts a dense blue/purple color as well as a sumptuous nose of blueberries, blackberries, scorched earth, licorice and forest floor. Stunningly pure and medium to full-bodied with oodles of fruit, this is a remarkable value to drink until the cows come home. Consume it over the next 2-3 years."

Bodegas Casa Castillo Jumilla Monastrell 2014

90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
91 Wine Advocate
(6/29/2016) "This feels like a superb vintage for the cuvée, very complete, aromatic, subtler than in the past, more elegant. The palate also feels very complete, nicely balanced, with great acidity and a very fine thread which makes it nicely textured. It's remarkable how the wines seem to be fine tuned each vintage, irrespective of how hard the climate conditions are. This is always a great value and represents the zone and vintage quite faithfully. It's thought out to be enjoyed young, but I've drunk incredible bottles at age 20!"

Bodegas Castano Yecla Monastrell 2014

88+ Our Score
90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(9/2015) "Deep ruby. Vibrant, sharply focused and complex on the nose, displaying fresh red berries, cherry pits, Asian spices and incense. The palate is juicy and taut with bitter cherry and redcurrant flavors and a sexy floral pastille nuance. Closes silky and gently sweet, with resonating floral and spice notes. This vibrant, insanely inexpensive wine was made entirely in stainless steel, with one-third whole clusters."

Bodegas Enrique Mendoza "La Tremenda" Monastrell 2014

92 Wine Advocate
(4/2016) "This wine has six months in used 500-liter barrels and a variable time in vat, between six months and one year. The 2014 feels very tender, it has the esparto grass austerity of the stony vineyards with the chalky soils and a myriad of Mediterranean herbs. They used some stems for the fermentation, which added a fine thread and makes it subtly textured. It has the dusty tannins and the saline tastiness of the limestone soils. It represents a superb value and a great introduction to the Monastrell from Alicante; the price is hard to believe."

Bodegas Valdespino "Inocente" Fino Sherry NV

93 Decanter
94 Wine Advocate
(8/2013) "I've often called Valdespino 'the Romanee-Conti of Jerez.' Well, there, I've said it. To me they represent quality and tradition at the very top of the Sherry hierarchy. The NV Fino Inocente must be one of the few wines in Jerez that is still fermented in 600-liter American oak botas, which is an incredible amount of work compared with fermenting tens of thousands of kilos of grapes (or even more) in a big stainless steel tank. This method was the norm of yesteryear, but is so labor intense that it was discontinued in most wineries, and gives a big diversity of wines, as each barrel has its own character, which contributes to the complexity of the blend. Furthermore, the bottled wine is on average 8 to 10 years old. One other thing that makes it apart from other Finos is that the grapes are exclusively from the high part of the Macharnudo vineyard, so this is a single-vineyard Fino. The nose is very complex, showing the effect of the long lees contact: chalk, dried hay, aromatic herbs and salty almonds. The palate is full, but at the same time elegant and balanced, powerful and fine, with the texture of a Meursault rather than a Puligny. A very complex wine, that manages to be both powerful and elegant. Inocente is great value for money. Drink 2013-2016."

Bogle "Essential Red" California Red 2013

90 Beverage Tasting Institute
89 Wine Enthusiast
(11/1/2015) "Welcoming and easy to drink, this full-bodied wine has mellow, ripe fruit flavors, light oaky accents and a warm sense of ripeness that doesn't go over the top. Subtle tannins support the texture while keeping it smooth. The blend includes Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah."
