2010 La Rioja Alta "904" Gran Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now...

2010 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza - Selección Especial" Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "Dried cherries, cedar, sandalwood, tar, treacle tart, cinnamon and vanilla. Medium body, fine-grained and very silky tannins for a wine of almost 10 years of age, bright and transparent acidity and a long, very spicy finish. Like going back in time and touching an ornate tapestry. The texture is mesmerizing." (07/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2010 was a great vintage in Rioja in general and seems to be exceptional here, with a 2010 Viña Ardanza Selección Especial (what used to be Reserva Especial) that can c...

2014 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
James Suckling: "A brambly array of violet and cassis aromas with a wealth of succulent, juicy and sappy berry flavors. Slightly rustic edge to the finish." (07/2019) K&L Notes: Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Cri...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pure Tempranillo 2015 Ercavio Roble owes its name to the fact that it matured in oak (roble is the Spanish word for oak) for some six months. It is a straightforward, happy and easygoing Tempranillo, with aromas of fruit and spices. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. (LG)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: In La Mancha, Ercavio clearly rules the roost in the production of top quality Tempranillo, known locally as "Cencibel." In this huge wine production area where volume producers far outnumber quality ones, E...

91 points James Suckling: "There’s still a lot of life to this aging Gran Reserva. It shows dried cherries, dried raspberries, cedar, tobacco and spices. Round and resolved on the palate with a good, but not overbearing, drying effect to the tannins. Solid on the finish. Drink now. " (06/2019) K&L Notes: A K&L Direct Import! Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja. Hailing from a long line of vineyard worker/owners, Puelles knows the terruño in his little slice of land in the Rioja Alta town of Abalos. All of the grapes for his red...

2015 Marqués de Murrieta "Finca Ygay" Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "So fresh and elegant with more than enough concentration and structure, this is a fine example of a 2015 Reserva. Ripe-blackberry, licorice, smoke and bourbon notes. I love the velvety texture of the long, intense finish. Better from 2019 and with long aging potential." (08/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red blend 2015 Rioja Reserva is 80% Tempranillo with 12% Graciano, 6% Mazuelo and 2% Garnacha, a little more Graciano and Mazuelo, something logical in ripe and warm years like 2015. It's produced with gr...

91 points James Suckling: "Big blackberry, chocolate and caramel nose with some spicy oak. This is a pretty bold wine on the palate, but the tannins are not out of line and the overall impression is of expansiveness rather than heaviness. Relatively supple finish. Drink or hold." (08/2018) K&L Notes: A longtime participant in the wine business, Miguel sold wine for wine distributors in the States as well as worked as an export manager. Miguel found success every step of the way, and then decided that rather than retire, he wanted to fulfill his dream o...

91 points James Suckling: "Some meat extract, as well as black fruit on the nose. There’s a solid, tannic base beneath the ripe fruit and generous body. The long finish is harmonious enough for immediate drinking." (08/2018)

There is a wonderful element of whimsy and joy at this tiny, family bodega located in Laguardia. The elephant logo, the onsite African art museum, as well as the name (there is no Señor de Lesmos, as it turns out) all speak to the family's joie de vivre and sense of humor. There is nothing funny about the quality of these wines, though. All estate fruit, hand harvested and carefully vinified with native yeasts, this is a hand-sewn wine with the purity, texture and elegance to prove it. Cuarteto is a classic, Alavesa style "maceración carbonica" wine whe...

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Closing in on its 25th birthday, this wine has gone a little insane in the bottle. Drink it just after opening and you’ll think it’s a bit of a refined old lady, rich, toasty and oaky, but starting to fray at the edges, the weave of its light tannins and firm acidity a little loose. The wine comes back together with several hours of air, however, and gains freshness over the course of a day, transforming into a wild, vivid beauty in its prime, the acidity and tannins merged into a vibrant salted caramel flavor with subtle flora...

2016 Bodegas Puelles Segundo Año Rioja
Top Pick!
A K&L Direct Import! This is a new wine for us from the Bodegas Puelles stable. "Segundo año" means second year, and refers to the fact that it is released in the wine's second year following harvest. Prior to the more widespread usage of terms such as crianza, reserva and gran reserva, wineries would indicate the age of their wine by stating segundo, cuarto, quinto or whichever was the appropriate year. Not merely a quaint throwback, however, this segundo año is delicious, with bright, crisp fruit of excellent purity and a judicious amount of barrel ag...

Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungent fruit as well as a real spicy and wild quality. In a v...

Jancis Robinson: "Mainly Tempranillo from Rioja Alavesa with 20% Garnacha from Rioja Alta. 60-year-old vines. Open vat fermentation with punching down. Aged in 500- and 600-litre oak barrels. Very complex and open nose, slightly natural scent showing dried herbs, spices, earthiness and a leathery touch. It is soft and delicate on the palate with light clay-textured tannins. It has a burgundian style and is very good quality. (FC) " (02/2017) K&L Notes: Native South African Bryan MacRobert grew up in a farming family, and has been quietly making some o...

92 points James Suckling: "Black olives and elderberries on the nose. Then, some real concentration and rather fine tannins on the palate, making this an impressive, 2014 Ribera del Duero red. Long, harmonious finish. Drink or hold." (10/2018)

2014 Bodegas Muga "Selección Especial" Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "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." (08/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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 win...

96 points Wine Spectator: "The dense, polished texture carries rich, harmonious flavors in this elegant red. Blackberry and currant notes mingle with espresso, mineral, licorice and spice accents. Lovely floral hints emerge on the long, clean finish. Beautifully sculpted. (TM)" (11/2019) 94 points James Suckling: "This has a very rich and fresh array of ripe dark berries and plums, earthy notes and attractively spicy oak influence. The palate has a very sleek, fresh and enlivened feel with lots of energy and depth. Great tannins. Drink or hold. " (06/2...

Located in the town of Roa, which is part of the Burgos district, Lambuena is a producer of D.O. Ribera del Duero wines. Ideally situated in the central growing region of the Ribera del Duero, in an area known for the very high quality of its chalky clay soils and its extreme continental climate, Lambuena makes big, generously fruited, yet structured and ultimately classic Ribera del Duero wines, very difficult to find these days in this D.O.

James Suckling: "There’s a touch of macerated sultanas here, but otherwise the raspberries and blackberries are pleasant enough. The lifted fruit on the palate is a little kitschy, and this finishes in a simple way. Drink now. " (06/2019) K&L Notes: Based in the village of Peñafiel, at the eastern edge of the Valladolid province's famed "Golden Mile" along the N-122, Pinna Fidelis produces richly fruited, sumptuous Ribera del Duero wines based on tinto fino grown in primarily calcareous clay parcels at altitudes up to 900 meters above sea level.

It has a bright nose with red fruit rather than black, quite aromatic and expressive. The palate is soft and approachable, very easy to drink, with a touch of freshness. They produced a whopping 4.5 million bottles of this! The bottle I tasted was bottled in April 2019 after 12 months in barrique. There are eight diff...

This is a delicious, clean and fresh, forward style of Rioja, packed in a 3-liter bag in box for maximum value.

Finally, the great 2005 Gran Reserva from our favorite Rioja winery has arrived! As is the case with so many other great spots in Spain, Bodega Casa Juan is located opposite the village church, in the beautiful walled pueblo of Laguardia. The winery is a converted flour mill, featuring concrete tanks for fermenting and blending the wine, and barrels that are used for up to seven years. These are traditional Riojas in elaboration and spirit, though the site specificity of their Laguardia and Villabuena vineyards confers a fruit character all its own to th...

The palate has chalky minerality and a dry mouthfeel. The soils are very sandy, and phylloxera never attacked the vines in the village of El Pego. The wine is serious, delicious and has an austere mouthfeel, with those grainy, sandy tannins. This feels like a much more expensive wine. 7,500...

A longtime participant in the wine business, Miguel decided that rather than retire, he wanted to fulfill his dream of owning vines and making wine.

It always matures in used American oak barriques for some six years. The oldest of all the reds I tasted, it was also the one with more freshness, which speaks to the quality of the vineyard. This takes the lion's share of the 400,000 bottles the winery produces, with some 220,000 bottles filled over a ...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship 2012 Reserva was cropped from a year when they started seeing the results of improvements made to the work in the vineyards that started in 2010. 2012 was not as warm and ripe as 2011, and the wine comes through as a nice balance between power and elegance, with some earthiness, good fruit and a fine palate. It has a personality between the Labastida and San Vicente bottlings of the Lindes bottlings. It matured in barrique for 18 months, but the wood feels very well integrated. 2012 was a shorter cro...

Cubillo is the youngest Lopez de Heredia wine in the stable, referring to the vineyard of the same name. Here, Tempranillo is grown alongside Garnacha, with a few hectares each of Mazuelo and Graciano. The average vine age is 40 years. Though it is always the most recent vintage of all their wines, it sees two years in used American oak barrels and another two in bottle prior to release, making it nearly old enough to be classified as a Gran Reserva. And while we would rather drink this bright, juicy, traditional Crianza than many Gran Reserva wines, it...
