Bodegas and Vinedos Raul Perez "Ultreia" Bierzo Mencia 2015

This gritty and pure Spanish red is a wonderful example of the beauty of the Bierzo region. If you're a fan of classic Pinot Noir, Beaujolais or even Barolo then there's a good chance you'll appreciate what makes this wine so special!

(8/2018) "Raul Perez crafted this red from a parcel planted mainly to mencia, with some bastardo, garnacha tintorera, dona blanca and palomino in the mix as well. This unusual field blend offers some unusual flavors, with the iodine notes of raw meat and lots of black-pepper spice to the ripe fruit. It tastes like its target is roast suckling pig."

Goyo Garcia "Joven Vinas Viejas" Ribera del Duero 2016

91 Our Score
(2/2018) The "Joven de Vinas Viejas" is a recent addition to Goyo Garcia's line. "Joven" in this designation means young or fresh, and that is precisely what this wine embodies. It just screams freshness! The fact that this cuvee also comes from some serious old vines doesn't hurt one bit, and lends plenty of depth and structure to this beautiful, vibrant rendition of Tempranillo. Many of the vines he works with are over 80 years old. The fruit is super tart and snappy, with a sharp edgy quality that plays well with the high acid. Think freshly pulled blackberries from the bush. The fresh berries are backed with notes of lightly dried leather, baked clay, wild herbs and solid core of black rock minerality, all wrapped in a rather lithe package. Goyo's wines are a revelation, offering an interpretation of the region that harkens back to a simpler bygone time.

Daniel Ramos Kapi Amphorae 2016

91 Our Score
(3/2019) This beautiful Garnacha from old vines in the high-elevation, steep-sloped region of Sierra de Gredos is spontaneously fermented and then aged in clay amphorae. It is fresh but full with spicy aromas of dried violets and roses, with a very pronounced note of granite and rocky earth, followed by a juicy palate of wild raspberries and black cherries. A more perfect balance of earth and fruit is hard to find at this price. Drink now or hold for a few years.

Vigna Magna "6 Meses" Ribera del Duero 2016

91 Our Score
(4/2019) We are a more-than-solid 91 points on this 100% Tinta del Pais (Tempranillo) from a 125 acre organically farmed vineyard in the northernmost extreme of the region. We were very tempted to award it 92. Six months aging in French oak provides initial aromas of vanilla, oak and spicy cherry. There is an incredible balance of ripe fruit, oak, smoke and spice - and after a few swirls, it gains even more complexity. A wonderfully layered, mouthfilling and enjoyable wine with soft tannins on the finish.

(8/2/2018) "Sexy, stylish and complex Bierzo with a wealth of dark graphite and stony aromas, pepper, baking spices and dark berries. Succulent palate with a deep and juicy core of pitch-perfect, ripe and spicy black cherries and blackberries. The tannins are immaculate. Long and regal. Drink or hold."

Isaac Cantalapiedra "Cantayano" Rueda Verdejo 2015

93+ John Gilman
(3/2017) "Isaac Cantalapiedra and his son, winemaker Manuel, cultivate twenty hectares of vines in and just outside of the borders of Rueda- hence the Castilla y León DO on this bottle, despite the fact that seven hectares of their Verdejo vineyards are in the heart of Rueda. This wine is crafted with natural yeast fermentation, with ninety percent fermented in stainless steel and ten percent in older French casks, with the wine spending eight months nurturing on its fine lees prior to bottling. The 2015 Cantayano delivers a deep, complex bouquet loaded with personality, reveling in scents of pear, peach stone, wild fennel, incipient notes of beeswax, salty soil tones and a nice herbal touch of lemongrass in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, focused and very full-bodied for Verdejo, with a rock solid core, excellent soil signature, bright acids and outstanding length and grip on the vibrant and still quite youthful finish. This is a dynamite bottle of Verdejo that should continue to improve over the next five to seven years in the bottle and may well last longer than that! 2017-2025+."

Bodegas Ordonez "Triton" Tinto de Toro 2016

93 Jeb Dunnuck
(3/1/2018) "The 2016 Tinta de Toro Tritón (100% Tinta de Toro) comes all from very old, ungrafted vineyards and was brought up mostly in used barrels. This beautifully sexy red boasts smoking good notes of ripe plums, black cherries, liquid violets, and loads of scrub brush and dried earth. Full-bodied and silky on the palate, with fine, fine tannin, it has remarkable purity, no hard edges, and enough structure to warrant another year in bottle. It's a seriously impressive wine. Maturity: 2019 - 2027."
