  4. Izadi Rioja El Regalo 2014
    JS91
    WA91
    Special Price $19.98 Regular Price $32.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points! The 2014 El Regalo is named after the estate in the village of Villabuena where the old-vine Tempranillo grapes used for it are grown. The destemmed and crushed grapes fermented in oak vats with half of the volume going through malolactic in those vats and the other half in new barriques. The wine matured in the best barriques money can buy (50% French, 50% American) for some 20 months. It's ripe, heady, juicy and with a lactic component that gives it a commercial profile. The palate is full-bodied, chewy and tannic. Contrary to what many might think, the younger wine is also the most expensive. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com Learn More

    Availability:In Stock

    95 Points! Deep ruby-colored, with an opaque core, the 2015 Tempranillo El Jefe Stoneridge Vineyard is 100% varietal. Charles and Brennon commented that they do a lot of cluster shaping with Tempranillo to get everything evenly ripe at the same time. Destemmed and aged in 40% new barrique, it reveals a terrific bouquet of black cherries, toasted spice, dried Provençal herbs, and hints of graphite. Medium to full-bodied, pure, elegant and layered on the palate, with fine yet certainly present tannin, it will cruise for a decade. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com

  8. Muga Rioja Seleccion Especial 2014
    JS94
    WA93
    VM93
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! 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. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com Learn More

Deep and powerful, with beautiful concentration, it’s nevertheless incredibly elegant and seamless on the palate, and shows terrific complexity in its blackcurrants, graphite, white flowers, and vanilla bean aromas and flavors. A wine of great intensity as well as purity, it builds with time in the glass and has a fabulous finish that won’t quit. It’s not for those craving lightweight aromas and flavors, but it’s a thrilling wine. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More

  13. Artadi Rioja Valdegines 2016
    WA94
    $51.98
    Availability:In Stock

    94 Points! The 2016 Valdeginés comes from an organically farmed vineyard planted 35 to 40 years ago at 600 meters in altitude in the village of Laguardia. From an east-facing plot of five hectares opposite La Poza de Ballesteros, the vines are younger here (from the early 1980s), and they get the morning sun. In a cooler year, like this 2016, the grapes ripened quite slowly. The Valdeginés fermented with indigenous yeasts in open-top wooden vats after a 24- to 48-hour cold soak and then matured in barrel until malolactic was completed, yet there is no trace of oak (the élevage was shortened to nine months in barrel), instead it's floral and vibrant in the palate. This is always the first single-vineyard wine offered for tasting, and it tends to be their prettiest wine; in 2016 it was really captivating, very clean, fresh and open from the first minute after being poured in the glass. 2016 seems to be a very transparent vintage, and this is a great example of it. Superb! 13,000 bottles produced. Drink: 2019-2026. - Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
