Descendientes des Palacios "Villa de Corullon" Bierzo 2012

95 Wine Advocate
(1/2015) "The 2012 Corullón is very fresh and aromatic, with citric aromas, very subtle, like an amplified version of Pétalos, more fragrant and fresh than Moncerbal, really open and accessible, changing by the minute, with faint notes of underbrush and captivating hints of bitter almonds and fennel. The palate is medium-bodied, very accessible, silky, with velvety tannins and good acidity. This is approachable now, but with it's balance, freshness and weight, it should age effortlessly and with class. I'm also tempted to say that this is the best Corullón to date. Drink: 2015 - 2022."

(8/28/2013) "The 2010 Carracedo is the winery's flagship red, sourced from two vineyards over 80 years old, where each vine produced between 1 and 1.3 kilograms of grapes. The grapes were fermented in oak barrels of 300 and 500 liters. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in new oak barriques. The wine aged for 14 months in second- and third-year barrels. They didn't produce it in 2009, because they thought it was too warm, but the 2010 has a deep purple color and a nose of dark cherries and plums. The palate is full-bodied, with plenty of stuffing and dry extract, balanced by good acidity. It displays good length and a persistent finish. It's a wine that needs powerful food, red meat or a stew to enjoy on a winter day. Drink 2014-2019."

(4/2016) "Always among the best values of Spain, the 2013 Pétalos del Bierzo has an extra degree of freshness in a cool vintage, and some time in bottle always does this wine wonders. It's aromatic, open and expressive, with floral aromas and bright fruit, wild strawberries and violets. This is always a subtle, medium-bodied wine, with fine tannins, sleek acidity and a fine minerality. Ready now."

Castro Ventosa "El Castro de Valtuille" Mencia Joven 2012

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $12.99!
90 Wine Advocate
(8/2013) "The young 2012 El Castro de Valtuille Mencia Joven, like all their wines fermented in stainless steel, spends two months in oak vats before being bottled, and needs lots of air. It displays very good concentration of aromas and flavors, showing minerality and elegance. It slowly reveals some licorice notes together with wild herbs and flowers. The palate is dense and ripe, while maintaining the freshness. Drink 2013-2018."
