La Rioja Alta "Vina Alberdi" Rioja Reserva 2012

91 Our Score
90+ Wine Advocate
(2/28/2018) "Cropped from an extremely dry year, the 2012 Vina Alberdi was saved by some rains in late September. The aging lasted two years, the first one in new American oak barrels and the second in used ones. It felt livelier than the 2011. This 2012 has some aromas of raw meat, with marked toast from the American oak (all the American oak barrels are built by their own coopers), with a good combination of fruit and spice, tradition and modernity. It's approachable and easy to drink, but a little more time in bottle should polish it even further. 500,000 bottles produced. Drink 2018-2023."

Obsidian Ridge "Obsidian Ridge Vineyard" Red Hills of Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

91+ Our Score
(12/2018) Crafted by Vin Chicago alum, Alex Beloz, this latest release of Obsidian Ridge continues to impress, showing a tremendous amount of depth and elegance. A harmonious balance of black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit flavors are layered with oak-driven complexities of mocha, cedar and baking spice. The finish is long and smooth with silky tannins that glide across the palate. The value of this mountain grown Cab is exceptional - it beats Napa at its own game. As the winery likes to say, "The grapes don't know which county they're in."

R. Lopez de Heredia "Vina Tondonia" Reserva Rioja 2006

95 Wine Advocate
(2/28/2018) "The red flagship 2006 Vina Tondonia Reserva was inspired by the vineyards of the Medoc 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. Drink 2018 - 2028."
