  1. Palacio del Burgo Rioja Crianza

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#49092

    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2019
    Brilliant violet color. Fragrant, oak-spiced dark berries, cherry preserves and a hint of candied flowers on the nose. Blends depth and energy smoothly, offering ripe boysenberry, cherry-cola and coconut flavors and a touch of smokiness. Closes spicy, broad and long, with smooth tannins and lingering florality.

    This plush red offers kirsch, plum and chocolate flavors that have a jammy character. Tangerine acidity keeps this lively, and leafy and licorice notes add interest. Tempranillo and Graciano. Drink now through 2021. 8,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
    RP8585 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Feb 2018
    The 2015 Palacio del Burgo Crianza is pure Tempranillo with higher ripeness and more presence of oak, aged in new, second and third use American oak barrels with high toast for one year. I found this too oaky for my taste, and the aromas of coconut, smoke and vanilla dominate the nose. The palate revealed sweet tannins, round and lush with lots of balsamic flavors, hinting on mint and eucalyptus. For fans of oaky Rioja. 72,000 bottles produced.

  2. R. López de Heredia Viña Tondonia Reserva

    2008 / 750 ml. | Item#50517

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    The nose of the 2008 Viña Tondonia Reserva is very elegant, fresh and with an herbal twist, starting to show the complexity of the aged wines that are sometimes still too young when they are released 10+ years from the vintage! The palate is medium-bodied, with lightness and depth, very classical with extra freshness and all that is needed for a long development in bottle. This is the more Tondonia of the two vintages I tasted side by side. There are notes of maple syrup, smoke, licorice and crisp fruit. The palate is more austere, crunchy and reveals the chalkiness of the soils. There’s more definition and precision here.
    JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, November 2, 2020
    Lots of dried fruit with plum, light raisin, chocolate and toasted oak. Some balsamic undertones. White truffles and dried flowers. Medium body, creamy tannins and savory, balsamic undertones. Extreme and unique, as always. Drink now.

  3. Muga Prado Enea Gran Reserva

    2011 / 750 ml. | Item#51062

    JS9999 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, December 8, 2019
    The most structured Prado Enea ever. A reduced center palate that is so compact with dark fruit, dark mushrooms and cedary spice. Full body. Wonderfully polished tannins and a long, long finish. Electric acidity. Muscular and well toned. The is a new classic that reminds me of great Spanish wines from the 1940s and 1950s. Better after 2021, but already so impressive.
    RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2019
    The most classical of the wines from Muga, the 2011 Prado Enea Gran Reserva comes from a warm year that here was cooler than 2012, when they did not produce it. There won’t be a 2013 either. So after this 2011, the following vintage will be 2014 but with fewer bottles and then 2015 and 2016. The wine has a developed nose with some tertiary notes, combined with some notes of ripe black fruit and sweet spices. It fees like an open, expressive and hedonistic year for Prado Enea. The palate reveals polished tannins and some balsamic and developed flavors, truffle, forest floor and hints of cigar ash and incense. Stylistically, this could be close to the 2006, which was also surprisingly fresh for the average ripeness found in Rioja in general. 92,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in early 2015 after almost 40 months in barrel. Time in bottle has polished the wine, and it’s ready to drink on release, but it’s a wine that is going to develop in bottle for a long time.
    WE9696 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2020
    Earthy plum and berry aromas set up a palate with plush tannins and layers of depth. Befitting a hot year like 2011, dark berry and plum flavors are full, while this exhibits fine shape on the finish and only gets better the longer it sits. This is no doubt a delicious Rioja from one of the top wineries in Spain. Decant if drinking now. Enjoy through 2035.
    JD95+95+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - September 6, 2019
    The 2011 Prado Enea checks in as a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, Mazuelo that spent a full three years in oak, followed by three years in bottle before being released in May of 2019. It reveals a deep ruby/plum color as well as a closed, tight nose of blackcurrants, smoked earth, graphite, and Asian spices. It’s rich, medium to full-bodied, has a layered, balanced texture, integrated tannins, and a great finish. It’s holding things a little close to its vest at the moment, so I suspect 2–4 years of bottle age are warranted.
    SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2019
    Aromatic and alluring, this generous red offers forest floor, tobacco and floral notes that frame a core of black cherry, plum, licorice and orange peel flavors. Well-integrated tannins support the broad texture, and juicy acidity keeps this fresh through the spicy finish. Drink now through 2027. 7,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.

    Some wet-wool aromas with dried plums, too. The palate has a mellow array of red berries and smooth, easy tannins. Drink now.
    SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2020
    This red has a juicy, tender texture, with gentle tannins and citrusy acidity. Cherry, candied berry and vanilla flavors mingle with herbal and forest floor notes. Harmonious, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2026. 500,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.

  6. Muga Selección Especial

    2014 / 750 ml. | Item#48907

    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, August 2, 2018
    Fruit-focused red, with strong aromas of ripe blackberries, red plums and gently complex earthy and spicy notes. There’s energetic, ripe dark and red fruit on the palate. Silky and crisp with fine tannins, giving a velvety and chalky texture. Upbeat and succulent finish. Drink or hold.
    JD93+93+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - March 1, 2018
    A wine that won’t be released on the market until next year, the 2014 Muga Reserva Selección Especial checks in as a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha, 10% Graciano, 5% Manuelo. With an inky black color and loads of black fruits, charcoal, lead pencil, and espresso aromas and flavors, it’s medium to full-bodied, has slightly more acidity than the 2012, as well as more tannin. It’s a balanced, pure, beautiful expression of Rioja. It’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 15–20+ years.
    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2019
    Bright violet color. Vibrant, spice- and mineral-tinged scents of fresh dark fruits and spicecake are complemented by a suave floral overtone. Juicy and pliant in the mouth, offering gently sweet black raspberry, cherry-cola, spicecake and rose pastille flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. In an energetic style, showing excellent clarity and silky tannins that frame an impressively long, focused finish.
    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Feb 2018
    The Muga family is a lot happier about 2014 than your average Riojano, and the 2014 Selección Especial shows why. Through a selection of the vineyards and longer aging in barrel, this is a more-polished wine, very good with food (it’s the one winemaker Jorge Muga usually has when he drinks one of his wines with a meal). There is very good acidity here, which is why I think this is so good with food. I really see that vintages produced from the higher-altitude, cooler places in Rioja where the Muga family sources their grapes are different from other parts of Rioja, and this 2014 is one of the finest and most balanced of the recent vintages of Selección Especial. 200,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2017.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 15, 2019
    A dense texture carries ripe flavors of blackberry, currant, licorice and toast in this modern-style red. Bright acidity and firm, slightly grippy tannins keep this focused. A bit angular now, but should smooth out with time. Best from 2020 through 2030. 14,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported.

  7. Señorío de P. Peciña Rioja Crianza

    2013 / 750 ml. | Item#33934

    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2019
    Lurid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet displays an array of ripe red fruits and pungent flowers, along with spice, vanilla and pipe tobacco accents that emerge with aeration. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering sappy, spice-tinged raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors and subtle licorice and mocha nuances. Finishes supple, sweet and very long, with slow-building tannins that meld smoothly with the wine’s intense fruit.

  9. R. López de Heredia Viña Bosconia Reserva

    2007 / 750 ml. | Item#47173

    JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, August 2, 2018
    A stunning vintage of this Rioja classic. Ripe and concentrated, yet cool and delicate with tons of fine tannin. Lots of earthy, autumnal Burgundy-like nuances, as well as notes of violets and plums. Long, complete finish. Drink or hold.
    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2019
    2006 was a hard year to follow, even if 2007 was a great year in Rioja and exceptional for López de Heredia. The 2007 Viña Bosconia Reserva shows a little tannic, fulfilling the reputation for being a more rustic wine than Viña Tondonia. There are notes of chocolate-covered cherries and hints of forest floor. Maybe with a little more time in bottle? 70,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2014.
    WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2019
    This wine grows at a south-facing estate vineyard along the Ebro River, one kilometer away from the family’s cellars in Haro. The vine age averages 40 years; the blend includes tempranillo (80 percent) with garnacha and a little graciano and mazuelo. Aged for five years in American oak barrels, then in bottle at the winery before release, it’s a completely Spanish red, friendly and jaunty, spicy in its delicate fragrance of tart cherries and strawberries. The pleasure of drinking a 12-year-old wine with so much energy and freshness makes the $40 price seem like a steal.

    Lovely purity of fruit to this Rioja, which shows fresh raspberries, eucalyptus, vanilla and baking spices. Round, medium-to full-bodied palate with centralized tannins that carry dark cherries on the medium finish. Drink now.

    Brilliant bright ruby. Ripe cherry, raspberry preserves and candied flowers on the highly perfumed nose and palate. Boasts excellent depth and energy, with a spine of juicy acidity adding focus and lift. This powerful yet lithe wine finishes with strong punch; supple tannins sneak in late to contribute shape and grip.

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2019
    The 2017 La Montesa is mostly Garnacha with some 8% other red varieties and comes from a warm and dry year that saw a very early harvest, up to 20 days earlier than usual. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in barrique for 12 months. It feels very Mediterranean, with notes of Mediterranean herbs and ripe berries. It’s juicy and lush, round and very pleasant, easy to drink. 670,000 bottles produced and will be labeled organic, very remarkable for such volume. It was bottled in May 2019.
