  1. Finca la Emperatriz Rioja Crianza

    Finca la Emperatriz Rioja Crianza

    €23.95

    Cherry red in colour, with a medium-high density, clear and brilliant. Good
    intensity on the nose, with outstanding notes of ripe red fruits. Aromas
    of vanilla and toast from the barrels, with a hint of minerality. The first
    attack on the palate is soft, with good volume and fruit, well balanced with
    the touch of oak for which our region is well-known. Good length, where
    the fruit dominates and through a long finish the aromas of fruit and the
    mineral notes from our soil reappear Learn More
  2. Condado de Haza Crianza Ribera del Duero 2014

    Condado de Haza Crianza Ribera del Duero 2014

    €26.95

    Aged in American oak barrels for 18 months with a further 6 months in bottle, the wine has a nose of redcurrant and rose petals petals and the mouthfeel is full, flavoursome and powerful with black fruit notes predominant Learn More
  3. Niepoort Vertente Douro 2015

    Niepoort Vertente Douro 2015

    €26.95

    In 2015, Vertente has a pretty ruby red colour, of medium concentration. A very fresh aroma and good complexity, marked by a mineral profile. Notes of black fruit, dark chocolate and spices. Very elegant on the palate with a good structure, without being heavy. Fine and well integrated tannins, it is a wine full of youth, with good acidity and fresh fruit. A long and elegant finish. Ideal to be drunk now, but thanks to its balance, it will have a long life in the bottle. Learn More
  4. Bodegas Emilio Moro 2015

    Bodegas Emilio Moro 2015

    €27.95

    Emilio Moro is the flagship bottling from the Bodega. It is produced from 100% Tinto Fino from vines ranging from 15-25 years of age. It undergoes a 28-day skin maceration followed by 12 months of ageing in French and American barrels. This is a classic example of Ribera del Duero and an excellent value. Learn More
  5. Pesquera Ribera del Duero 2014

    Pesquera Ribera del Duero 2014

    €32.95

    “Alejandro Fernandez has become one of the superstars of Spain. His wine is made from the Tempranillo grape and is aged 2-21/2 years in casks, which produces remarkable depth and richness, and a texture not unlike top notch Pomerol. The rich fruit combined with the sweet oaky smells has resulted in some opulent and voluptuous wines that are real head turners.”Robert Parker, The Wine Buyer’s Guide Learn More

  7. Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 2011

    Vega Sicilia Tinto Valbuena 2011

    €165.00

    The 2011 Valbuena was fermented plot by plot, something they started after a deep soil study in the 2010 vintage. 2011 was a very warm and ripe vintage in the zone, and the challenge was to keep the freshness. There are more black fruit aromas, subtle spices and hints of complexity, as well as tertiary aromas that are quite classic and turn more balsamic with time in the glass. Again, this is very different form the 2012 Alión, rounder, riper, richer, more polished, mellow, soft, quite exuberant and hedonistic. 170,000 bottles produced. A couple of weeks before my appointment at Vega Sicilia, the big news broke: Javier Ausás, long time technical director at the Vega Sicilia group (recently renamed Tempos Vega Sicilia, a name that is a little pompous if you ask me), was leaving. A few days before I went, his replacement was named: Gonzalo Iturriaga. Who? That's exactly what everyone thought too! Iturriaga is an agricultural engineer with some experience in Ribera, one year in the early days of Alonso del Yerro, and then five years in Extremadura in charge of the wines of Habla, an ambitious project in a southwestern zone of Spain off the beaten track that didn't really take off. He spent his last five years selling yeasts and other oenological products for the French company Lamothe-Abiet, a CV that a priori looks a little poor for someone who is taking over the most prestigious winery from Spain. But let's give him time -- it will take a few years until we see any of his wines in the market -- and hope for the best. Other than that, they are releasing Único 2007 and 2008 before they sell 2005 and 2006, as the former are lighter vintages, and the latter are more powerful and require/benefit from some time in bottle. After tasting the wines, I followed the opened bottles and was a little worried to see that the wines showed plenty of oxidative aromas the day after, not what I expect for wines designed for a long and slow development in bottle.
