Cume do Avia "Dos Canotos" Ribiero Tinto 2017

90+ Our Score
(5/2019) From Ribeiro's new natural winemakers at Cume do Avia, the medium-bodied Dos Canotos strikes a fine balance between the inky Souson that comprises the majority of the blend and the brightness and backbone of the remaining Caino Longo and Brancellao. Farmed organically and biodynamically and then aged in century-old chestnut vats, the aromas and flavors of fresh violets stirred into wild red and blackberries and dried herbs emulate something like the ripeness of Gamay crossed with the black-fruited earthiness of Northern Rhone Syrah. Though its refreshing acidity and bright fruit make it delicious out of the gates, its healthy structure and deep-rooted layers would benefit from a brief decanting, and even a year in the cellar.

Luis Rodriguez "A Torna Dos Pasas" Ribiero Tinto 2012

91+ John Gilman
(2/2016) "As I mentioned last year in the note on the fine 2011, the A Torna dos Pasás from Luis Rodríguez is comprised of a blend of traditional Galician red grapes, with the cépages consisting of forty percent Brancellao, and twenty percent each of Caiño Redondo, Caiño Longo and Ferrol (not that I am familiar with any of these grapes!), which were once the predominant grapes in Ribeiro it its salad days of yore. The vines grown on steep, southfacing granite sites and the wine is aged in old, three hundred liter barrels. The 2012 A Torna dos Pasas is just a touch lower in octane than the previous vintage (12 versus 12.5 percent) and a fine follow-up to the lovely 2011, offering up a more black fruity and very complex nose of dark berries, charred wood, coffee grounds, a touch of tree bark, slate soil tones, lovely botanicals and a touch of graphite in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and surprisingly plush at the core for its octane level, with lovely focus and grip, excellent intensity of flavor, modest tannins, sound acids and very good length and grip on the complex finish. This has a lot Ribiera Sacra-like aromas and flavors this year, coupled with the more fleshy (and slightly less transparent) style of Ribeiro. This is really a superb bottle of wine and is drinking very well right out of the blocks. 2016-2035+."

Cume do Avia "Colheita 5" Ribiero Tinto 2017

90 Our Score
(5/2019) The brothers behind Cume do Avia have a story to match the rugged landscape of their vineyards in Ribeiro. After inheriting an abandoned farm from their grandparents, they set upon planting long-forgotten indigenous varietals and farming them organically and biodynamically. They took out loans to purchase equipment and after several years of learning and experimentation, 2017 is the first true vintage. Comprised of 40% Caino Longo, 26% Brancellao and 34% Souson, Colleita 5's rawness is balanced by its elegance. Aged in hundred-year-old chestnut barrels, this light-bodied 11%er greets you with flowery notes of wild strawberry, cranberry and green herbs. A quintessential refreshment at cellar temperature.

(8/2/2018) "Superb, peppery dark berries, plenty of spices and a wrap of glossy, ripe tannins on the palate that perfectly suits the dark-berry and spicy-fruit core. Lots to like here. Drink or hold."

Eidos de Padrinan Rias Baixas Albarino 2017

90 Our Score
(8/2018) Adega Eidos is a small production winery that makes only three wines, all from the Albarino grape. Their attention to detail and craftsmanship really comes through in this entry-level offering. Complex yet clean, the tropical and citrus fruit flavors will delight your palate and the salinity and fresh finish will bring you back for more. Try with a chilled shellfish platter, oysters or a seafood stew. Delicious!

92 James Suckling
(8/2/2018) "The complex white-peach, gooseberry and floral nose is very enticing and just beginning to open up. Rich, yet sleek and elegant with spot-on balance of fruit, creaminess from yeast contact and lemon-lime acidity. Where is that pan-fried fish! Drink now or hold."

Morgadio Rias Baixas Albarino 2017

91 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
90 Our Score
(9/2018) The historic estate of Morgadio helped put the Albarino grape in the spotlight after their vineyards were used for experimentation that assisted in the creation of the Rias Baixas appellation in the early 1980s. If you're curious what a classic example of Albarino tastes like, this is it. During the winemaking process, the juice is macerated on the lees for two months, adding a rich and round texture that is characteristic of the region. That richness is balanced out by fresh acidity, deliciously pure fruit flavors of pear, peach and citrus zest, and a long, mineral-driven finish. Grab a chilled seafood platter and go to town!

Lagar de Cervera Rias Baixas Albarino 2018

A zesty, incisive Albariño from the owners of La Rioja Alta!
92 James Suckling
(7/26/2019) "So many flowers here, including honeysuckle, daffodils, almonds and cherry blossom. The palate has a really expansive, fleshy feel for this variety, without the addition of oak, but the acidity is still forthright and still right on point. Drink now."

Peza do Rei Ribiera Sacra 2016

90 Our Score
(10/2018) This is 100% Mencia grape from the steeply sloped region of Ribiera Sacra in the Northwest of Spain. Taut red berry fruits are accented with red-rock earth, muted red florals and dusty minerality flavors. The acidity is medium-plus, the tannins are medium and the body is medium-full. Try with slow-cooked stews this winter!

Avancia "Cuvee de O" Valdeorras Mencia 2015

92 Wine Spectator
(12/31/2017) "Espresso, sanguine and gamey flavors give this firm red a savory character, but there's a core of plum and currant fruit. Offers a good balance of firm tannins, balsamic acidity and dense texture. Drink now through 2023. 1,000 cases made. Smart Buy"
