Domaine du Gros Nore Bandol Rouge 2012

Wine #94 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2015!
93 Wine Spectator
(10/15/2015) "This has a dark leathery frame but remains sleek and pure overall, with a dense core of currant preserves, steeped plum and lightly mulled blackberry fruit, studded with dried anise and singed juniper notes. A bolt of iron is buried deeply on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2025. 420 cases imported."

Casa Castillo "Las Gravas" Jumilla 2012

Polished, delicious, balanced and fresh, this complex characterful red is totally drinkable now and will be perfect with beef, lamb or venison.

(2/2015) "It starts off with some notes of smoke, toffee, fresh fruit and orange peel in harmony with well-integrated oak and a stony profile that develops more and more notes of esparto grass with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied, with some polished, very fine tannins and a good mid-palate that is very balanced and fresh (I saw a note of pomegranate, is it the Garnacha?). It is a serious, very young wine with ripe flavors that make it very tasty. This is clearly riper than the 2013s and shows the character of the vintage quite transparently. The price is a dream come true. Super!"

Mullineux "Kloof Street" Swartland Mourvedre 2012

91 Our Score
(12/2016) A 100% Mourvedre from South Africa? Yep. This is our first ever such wine, and we're guessing it is yours too. Tasting like a young Bandol, with savory flavors of meat, smoke and coffee, this dark fruited red wine has a ton of character. Hard to believe its under $20! Try this beauty with lamb or grilled sausages.

Bodegas Juan Gil "Silver Label" Jumilla Monastrell 2014

91 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(1/2017) "(aged for a year in French oak barrels, 30 percent of them new) Glass-staining ruby. Deep-pitched black and blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of woodsmoke, incense and candied violet, and a subtle hint of vanilla emerges with air. Juicy and deeply concentrated yet lively as well, offering sweet blackberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors and a refreshing jolt of white pepper. The long, broad finish features repeating florality and rounded tannins that fold smoothly into the dark fruit. Drinking Window: 2018 - 2023."

Bodegas Volver "Tarima Hill" Alicante Monastrell 2014

92 Our Score
92 Wine Advocate
(8/2016) "This is one of the top value wineries in all of Spain, working from generic appellations such as La Mancha to Jumilla and Alicante. They produce an amazing amount of inexpensive, high-quality wine that sells for a song. The 2014 Tarima Hill, from Alicante, is also 100% Mourvèdre aged 20 months in French oak and from the oldest vines of the estate, planted 1935-1975. They are also relatively high elevation, at 2,000 to 2,400 feet above sea level. This wine shows wonderful, pure aromatics of blueberry, black raspberries, chalk and spring flowers. The wine has beautiful, full-bodied texture, impressive ripeness and purity and length. The minerality is present, and the wine a heck of a value. Drink over the next 4-5 years."

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 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 Volver "Wrongo Dongo" Jumilla Monastrell 2015

A whole lot of fun here for $6.99. Check out this great write-up from Robert Parker...
87 Wine Advocate
(8/30/2016) "From Jumilla, the interestingly named 2015 Wrongo Dongo is 100% Mourvèdre aged six months in French oak. Named after a well-known Washington, D.C. wine personality who often used this expression, this fruit bomb emerges from vines planted 1977-1987 and is a real winner. This is a big, powerful, dark ruby/purple-colored wine with excellent fruit, plenty of blueberry and black raspberry notes, licorice, camphor and spice. The amusing label and its basement-level price, hardly indicates the quality of this wine, which is a sensational bargain. 10,000 cases were produced. Drink it over the next several years."
