Bodega Valdehermoso "Lagar del Rey" Rueda Verdejo 2015

The best value Rueda we've ever found!
89 Our Score
91 Wine & Spirits
(6/2016) "A particularly fresh and crisp Rueda, this wine's vivid white fruit merges with deep flavors of almonds-it spent more than four months in contact with the lees. Generously ripe, this doesn't lose sight of its acidity, which provides nerve and tension."

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 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 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

Holy cow, you need to read this write-up! This kind of complexity for ten bucks is unreal.
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 2014

Juicy, delicious and surprisingly intense for the price, this Vin Chicago top seller is an easy choice for parties and any-night-of-the-week enjoyment.
90 Wine Enthusiast
(12/31/2016) "Best Buy. A sleek texture and delicious, focused fruit flavors like cranberry and black cherry make this full-bodied wine mouthfilling and compelling. It offers density and richness, too, which helps extend the lightly sweet finish."

Cantina di Mogoro San Bernadino Monica di Sardegna 2012

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $12.99!
90 Our Score
(1/2016) A new vintage of this sassy Sardinian steal! The blend is 85% Monica and 15% Bovale (known as Bobal in Spain). Light but penetrating aromas of red berry, cherry and spice. Soft in the mouth with flavors of sour cherry, strawberry, pepper and other spice - this shows more minerality on a slightly leaner frame than did the prior vintage. Fantasticly balanced, this is fresh as could be with sweet tannin and a warm, lingering finish. Serve with pasta in tomato based sauces or roasted meats.

Casa Silva "1912 Vines" Colchagua Valley Sauvignon Gris 2014

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $14.99!
90+ Our Score
90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(6/2015) "Pale yellow. Smoky minerals, dried citrus fruits and jasmine on the fragrant nose. Spicy and precise, offering intense Meyer lemon and green apple flavors that flesh out and deepen with air. Powerful yet lithe and finely etched, finishing with excellent clarity and mineral-driven persistence. That 1912 designation refers to when the vines were planted, not how many of them are planted."
