Quinta da Aveleda Vinho Verde Loureiro/Alvarinho 2017

88 Our Score
91 Wine & Spirits
89 Wine Advocate
(6/29/2018) "The 2017 Branco Quinta da Aveleda, the Estate white in the Bordeaux-style bottle, not to be confused with the fizzy one that just says "Aveleda" and is in the flute-shaped bottle, is a blend of 70% Loureiro and 30% Alvarinho, dry and coming in at 11.5% alcohol. Although a mass-market wine (1,050,000 bottles), Aveleda typically does an astonishing job here for modest money, making a serious wine in a non-fizzy style. Sourced from 12-year-old vines, this shows beautifully, given its fine concentration for the level and exceptional purity of fruit. The finish is long, tense and filled with flavor. In a region filled with awesome values, this is certainly one of the best bangs for the buck that you can get. They age surprisingly well too, not that they necessarily reward aging. And not many people will keep their hands off of it for very long."

Honoro Vera Rioja 2017

We just took delivery of one final shipment of this totally over-delivering Rioja from the Juan Gil family!
90 Our Score
(9/2018) Made from 100% estate-grown Tempranillo from the Juan Gil family's newly-purchased vineyards in Rioja Alavesa, the 2017 Honoro Vera Rioja is almost too good to be true! Authentic Rioja flavors of plum, cherry, fig, a touch of leather, cedar, vanilla and spice dominate on the palate. With incredible structure, well-integrated tannins and a long finish, this stuff would still be a real value at twice the price! In future vintages, much of the fruit that went into this wine will go into new, higher-tier Rosario Vera bottlings. In 2017, it all went into Honoro Vera! Totally delicious, it is soft enough to drink on its own and structured enough to pair with an enormous variety of foods. Pick it up by the case!

Espelt "Old Vines" Emporda Garnacha 2015

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $9.99!
90 Our Score
(3/2017) Our favorite value Garnacha from the northeast corner of Spain is back and it is super delicious! Purply-pink in the glass, the vines for this wine average 95 years in age and are certified organic. Very fresh with a lifted grapey beginning, the wine is deeper than initially suspected, with dark red berry fruit and medium tannins. Winemaker Anna Espelt has delivered another outrageous value.

Evodia Aragon Garnacha 2016

89 Wine Advocate
91 Jeb Dunnuck
(2/21/2018) "Another project between Eric Solomon and the Roussillon's Jean-Marc Lafage, the 2016 Evodia comes from higher elevation vineyards and is mostly Garnacha (there's 5% Syrah) aged in a mix of tank and demi-muids. This deep ruby/purple colored is a gorgeous, naked expression of Grenache that just knocks it out of the park. Blackberries, blueberries, pepper, licorice and hints of asphalt all emerge from this plump, sexy, opulent, and shockingly concentrated wine that has incredible charm and character. It's the best 10-dollar bottle of wine I've tasted in years."

Bodegas Volver "Paso a Paso" Tierra de Castilla Tempranillo 2016

90 James Suckling
88 Wine Advocate
(12/29/2017) "The 2016 Paso A Paso is pure Tempranillo from La Mancha sold as Vino de la Tierra de Castilla, the generic regional appellation. 201[6] was a dry and early harvest. It fermented in stainless steel vat and matured in vats and in well-seasoned 225-liter oak barrels for six months. It's fruit driven, expressive, juicy and clean, very pleasant and straightforward."

Tilia Mendoza Malbec 2016

90 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2016) "The youthful and aromatic 2016 Malbec has an alcohol level that is one degree lower than the 2015, as the grapes where harvested earlier because of the problems with the vintage. This ended up being an advantage to produce a light and very drinkable Malbec, balsamic and aromatic, even minty with something that reminded me of basil leaves. The palate is similar to the 2015, a tad fresher, and even if they are very similar in style this 2016 is more exuberant in the aromas. A triumph over the vintage. A perfect introduction to Mendoza Malbec at a very attractive price."

Bodegas Volver "Tarima" Alicante Monastrell 2016

We tracked down one final pallet of this tasty, bargain-priced red!
92 James Suckling
(7/24/2017) "Great black fruit that is fully ripe without a hint of overripeness. This is a big, rich wine. Rather fine and generous tannins help it carry the high-ish alcohol. Almost silky at the long finish."

Bodegas Breca "Garnacha de Fuego" Aragon Garnacha 2016

Jorge Ordoñez nails it again! A massively over-delivering red with a very slick gold-foil label.
90 Jeb Dunnuck
(3/1/2018) "Brought up in a mix of concrete and stainless steel, the 100% Garnacha 2016 Garnacha de Fuego offers a deep black/purple color to go with terrific notes of blackcurrants, black cherries, scorched earth, and melted licorice. Ripe, sexy and forward on the palate, with notable purity, it's a classic Garnacha to drink over the coming 5-6 years."
