  3. Pago de Carraovejas Ribera del Duero Reserva 2014
    WE94
    JD97
    $64.98
    Availability:In Stock
    97 Points! A magical wine, the 2014 Reserva from winemaker Almudena Calvo is largely Tempranillo blend with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot, all aged in French oak for a year. 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

  5. Bodegas Mauro Mauro 2016
    WA93
    $42.98
    Availability:In Stock

It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels and foudres for 15 months. 2016 is a cooler, more Atlantic and more drinkable vintage with contained ripeness, fine tannins and nice balance. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

  7. Dominio de Pingus Ribera del Duero Psi 2016
    JS94
    WA92-93
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92-93 Points!  I  tasted the...2016 PSI a few weeks before bottling, so I tasted the final blend in tank and ready to go into bottle. What came to mind when I smelled this sample was some of the old vintages of Pesquera. All the grapes come from the north and east of Aranda del Duero, from the cooler part of the appellation. The logistics of doing this volume is not easy, and in 2016 they were able to ferment 100% of the volume in their own winery, which gave them more control. The year was naturally fresher, mostly through higher yields, and they also managed the harvest date with more precision. All this translates into a fresher wine with more precision and elegance...probably the finest vintage of PSI—finer, longer and sharply focused. According to Sisseck, this is the PSI he always dreamed about. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

  8. Dominio del Aguila Picaro Ribera del Duero Vinas Viejas 2016
    WA93
    $27.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93+ Points!  The youngest of the released wines I tasted is a red—the 2016 Pícaro del Águila Tinto. It is from what they consider to be one of the best and freshest vintages in recent times. This is produced with the vines from the warmer parts of La Aguilera, a cold place to start with (and in a cooler year). The old vines are planted with a mix that is dominated by Tempranillo but also contains some 5% other grapes. All the grapes are picked and fermented together with full clusters and natural yeasts in concrete and stainless steel vats. It matured in oak barrels for 13 months. This is fragrant, expressive, open, aromatic and really attractive. The palate is really balanced, with great freshness, fine tannins and a very pleasant mouthfeel—supple, balanced and with great depth. This is the best version of this bottling so far, and it seems like 2016 could be a great overall vintage, based on some other wines I sampled from cask (many of them have an extended élevage). - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

  9. Pingus Ribera del Duero Flor de Pingus 2016
    JS96
    WA93-95
    $89.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93-95 Points! The paradox of 2016 is that it was a warm year, but the resulting wines have great freshness, which also happened in 1996 (one of my favorite old vintages of Pingus). The yields were higher, which brought more freshness to the wines; and the wines are airier and not as compact as, for example, 2015. In fact, what they have been doing for some time now is to work in viticulture—the pruning and what you do with the canopy—to achieve slightly higher yields and get the plants to balance, because as you increase the yields, the ripening takes longer. Even though it's young, this shows amazing perfume that should bloom with a year in bottle. This has all the signals to become one of the greatest vintages of Flor de Pingus. - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

  10. Hacienda Monasterio Ribera del Duero 2015
    JD95
    WA94
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! Made with guidance from Peter Sisseck, the 2015 Crianza from Hacienda Monasterio is a blockbuster effort that’s a blend of 75% Tinto Fino, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Merlot, all of which spent 18 months in 30% new French oak. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by terrific notes of blueberries, violets, graphite, and crushed rocks. Full-bodied, deep, concentrated, and elegant, with a traditional style and building tannin, it’s incredible that they produce upward of 30,000 cases of this beauty. It’s no doubt beautiful today yet will keep for a decade or more. Even at $50, it’s a smoking value! - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com

  13. Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 5o 2013
    WS92
    WA94
    $149.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! Cropped from an unusually cold and rainy vintage in which they will not bottle Único, the 2013 Valbuena is always released in its fifth year. It's mostly Tempranillo with 5% Merlot that was put through a three- to four-day cold soak in the oak vats where it fermented with indigenous yeasts and was pumped over. It matured in new and used 225-liter French and American oak barriques and also in 20,000-liter oak vats, where the larger vessels respect the fruit, especially in a more fragile vintage like 2013. It's a very elegant and fresh Valbuena with a developed nose, quite classical with a fine texture, elegant tannins and a supple, long finish where the oak is still quite obvious. I liked it very much and consider it a triumph over the challenges of the year. - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

  17. Dominio del Aguila Picaro Ribera del Duero 2015
    JS95
    WA92
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92+ Points! I also tasted the 2015 Pícaro Tinto, which should be released sometime in the spring of 2017. 2015 is a warmer year than 2014, and all the vineyards selected for this cuvée are north-facing, which is the cooler exposition, ideal to compensate the heat of the year. The élevage was a little shorter than in previous vintages to try to avoid a strong effect in the wine. The wine is still in the fruit-driven phase, it's juicy and it has some tannins and the seriousness of the limestone soils, a little riper than the Reserva, without the same length. This is usually produced with grapes from vineyards on soils with a little more clay, where the wine is more forward and there's better ripeness and less austerity. Their barrels are aging and the effect is a lot less noticeable than when the barrels were new. This is a fresh interpretation of 2015. I wish more Crianzas from Ribera del Duero had this joviality and approachability while keeping the balance and the serious quality profile. I'd say this is a real triumph over the vintage, at the same (or even a little better) quality level than the 2014. This has all the ingredients to be a commercial success. - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate
