  2. Marqués de Riscal Reserva

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#25970

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2019
    The 2015 Rioja Reserva, which comes mainly from Rioja Alavesa, has a tightly wound bouquet of broody black fruit, Cuban cigar and black olive. It is not intense, but it is very elegant. The medium-bodied palate is off-dry, marked by fine acidity and plenty of soy-tinged black fruit. With aeration, it develops more depth and cohesion. A sprinkling of white pepper appears toward a beautifully proportioned finish framed by fine tannins. Superb.

  3. 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.

    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.
    WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2020
    This is a lean and fragrant vintage of Viña Tondonia, the López de Heredia family’s prime Rioja Alta vineyard above a meander along the Ebro River. In 2008, the wine is gamey up front, with sour cherry flavors and a delicate, lasting richness. The wine defines Rioja’s traditional elegance.

  4. La Rioja Alta Viña Alberdi Reserva

    Reserva
    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#40062

    JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, October 14, 2021
    A pretty nose of raspberries, cassis, fresh herbs, vanilla and sweet spices. It’s medium-bodied with round tannins. Creamy and fruity with chocolatey character on the mid-palate. Supple finish with excellent length. Tangy acidity. 100% tempranillo. Drink or hold.
    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
    Their young and fresh red 2018 Viña Alberdi, already a Reserva (Crianza in Spain), matured in oak barrel for two years—in new barrels for the first year and in used barrels for the second year. During the élevage, they racked the wine manually from barrel to barrel four times. 2018 was a year of lower alcohol and more freshness in the wines, and they thought the wines were not designed for the long haul; so, they didn’t produce any other wine, and so the only wine from 2018 IS VIÑA ALBERDI! Which means that all the Tempranillo grapes that were destined for 890, 904 and all the other wines went to this wine. They didn’t use the Garnacha (which was sold in bulk). So, this is a super-Viña Alberdi, which shows more Crianza style in this cooler vintage but with very good depth and complexity, perhaps a more modern and fresher style. The wine has a seamless palate and a juicy texture, with more color than other vintages, more intensity, more fruit… It has grapes from very good vineyards and poor soils that were never destined for this wine. Highly recommendable and very versatile. It has potential to age. They produced a whopping one million bottles of it. It was bottled in March 2021. (Luis Gutiérrez)

  5. Señorío de P. Peciña Rioja Crianza

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#33934

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    They are convinced at the winery that the 2015 Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza is the best Crianza they have ever produced, which is often the case with the current vintage for sale... But I must admit that the wine was very impressively balanced, nuanced and complex. It has freshness and is approachable enough while showing Rioja character and integrated oak to appeal to a wide audience. It’s ripe without excess, coming through as juicy and tasty. It spent two years in used American oak barrels. 100,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2019.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
    Bright ruby. Lively, smoke- and spice-accented cherry and black raspberry aromas are complemented by floral, vanilla and pipe tobacco flourishes. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering vibrant red and blue fruit flavors that deepen and turn spicier with air. Shows very good energy and appealing florality on a very long, penetrating finish shaped by well-judged tannins.

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#29651

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    I find balance, seriousness and some restraint in the 2018 Crianza. It has moderate alcohol and contained ripeness, integrated oak and a polished palate with fruit and spice flavors that make it quite recognizable as Rioja. It has some tannins that would welcome food and/or a little bit more time in bottle. It’s 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano matured in American oak barrels for one year. 240,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2020. (Luis Gutiérrez)

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#28412

    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, November 2, 2020
    A rich, fruity red with plum, light chocolate and vanilla character. It’s medium-to full-bodied with round, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.
    WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 12/20
    This wine’s fresh anise scent has the underlying earthiness of tripe, and it would be pretty delicious with a bowl of tripe braised in red wine. It offers the kind of richness without weight that allows the fragrant peppery and cherry-skin flavors to last through the dark, earthy tannins, a little bitter, a little oaky, but cool in the end.

  10. R. López de Heredia Viña Cubillo

    2011 / 750 ml. | Item#25940

    JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, July 26, 2019
    Cubillo spends three years in barrique and then in larger cask to await bottling, which happens two years before the expected release. This is very fresh on the nose with quite fresh, ripe blackberries and dark cherries, mahogany and dry, woody spices. The palate is very powerful, juicy and fresh with clear black cherries and plums in abundance. So fresh, fleshy and deep. The freshness is impressive. Long, shell-like tannins. Drink or hold.
    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2019
    It’s not easy to follow a 2010, but the 2011 Viña Cubillo Tinto Crianza improves with time in the glass, showing much better than expected. 2011 was a warmer year than the 2010, and the wine is a little riper but has great balance and very good harmony. It’s a noteworthy red for the price asked. 90,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2017.

  11. Contino Reserva

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#54323

    RP94+94+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    The renewed classical red 2016 Reserva was produced as a blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo. It fermented in small stainless steel and concrete vats and matured in 225-liter French (80%) and American (20%) oak barrels for 18 months. It has a very expressive nose, open, aromatic and showy, a little Rhône-ish. 2016 was a cooler year and they had a long harvest, and it seems like the fruit ripened thoroughly without excess. It’s a natural continuation of the 2015, when the wine already had more freshness and better integrated oak. It has a full body and some dusty tannins, finishing dry and tasty. It’s ready to drink. There were 281,389 bottles and 3,000 magnums produced. It was bottled in May 2019.
    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
    Brilliant violet. Highly perfumed aromas of ripe cherry, blueberry, candied rose and incense are complemented by vanilla and woodsmoke nuances that build in the glass. Sweet and pliant on the palate, offering sappy black and blue fruit liqueur and spicecake flavors and a hint of smokiness. Lingers with strong tenacity on the finish, which features a repeating blue fruit note and steadily building tannins.
    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2021
    This broad red shows inviting freshness, with black cherry and red plum notes that are pure and engaging. Accents of herb, graphite and black tea weave along through the smooth, toasty finish. Drink now through 2030. 2,800 cases made, 800 cases imported.

  12. Monopole Blanco Seco Rioja

    2021 / 750 ml. | Item#46746

    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 4, 2022
    This has aromas of sliced pears, green tea, apples, fennel and lemons. Medium-bodied, crisp and clean. Crunchy stone fruit with a subtle herbal note. Refreshing. Mainly from viura. Drink now.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
    The dry white 2021 Monopole is a wine that has been produced since 1915, the oldest brand for white wine in Spain. It’s classical with varietal character, young and fresh. The grapes, mostly Viura, were picked between September 21st and October 19th, and the wine achieved 13% alcohol, keeping a pH of 3.3 after fermenting in stainless steel, without using any oak, to keep the primary, fruit and floral characteristics of the grape. They consider 2021 a very good year for whites, with good freshness, but more heterogeneous, and Víctor Urrutia, CVNE’s CEO, favors 2020 against 2021. It’s primary, clean and fresh, with a tasty salty twist. Among the finest Monopole of recent years. 300,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2022. (Luis Gutiérrez)

  14. Palacios Remondo Finca La Montesa

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#37734

    RP93+93+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    The quality/price champion 2018 La Montesa is now 100% Garnacha from organically farmed vineyards from the 100-hectare family property that gives the wine its name. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats and matured in barriques, 85% of them produced with French oak and the rest with American oak. It feels very young, and the oak is still present; and the American oak, which is spicy and smoky, with ashy incense and vanilla with some sweet undertones, gives it a character that brings back the character of the traditional wines from yesteryear in a very clean way. It has vibrant freshness and should develop nicely with a couple of years in bottle. It has great purity and typicity, less Mediterranean than the 2017, nicely textured, velvety. I think the breakthrough vintage for this wine was 2015. This has all the grapes that would have been used for the Propiedad label, which was not bottled separately in 2018. It carries the EU organic-farming label. It’s quite impressive for the quantity they produce — 700,000 bottles. They started bottling in April 2020 from a single master blend. I tasted one of the first bottles.

  15. Muga Prado Enea Gran Reserva

    2014 / 750 ml. | Item#51062

    JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 5, 2021
    Really beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry, brambleberry, hazelnut, walnut and light coffee, following through to a full yet so reserved and polished body with fine, creamy-textured tannins. Fresh and exquisite finish. This is a much more refined and harmonic rendition of their classic wine. Three years in French oak from their own production. Very enjoyable now, but this will improve with age for a long time.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2021
    Full-bodied, refined and powerful, with a luxurious texture, this red boasts glossy raspberry reduction, cherry and mineral notes, woven together with floral and spice accents and hints of tobacco and tea. Drink now through 2033. 5,500 cases made, 1,650 cases imported.
