  1. Palacio del Burgo Rioja Crianza 2012
    VM90
    $9.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! Vivid ruby. Deeply pitched scents of candied dark berries, cherry-vanilla and woodsmoke, with a suave floral note building in the glass. Supple, sweet and expansive, offering broad blackberry and violet pastille flavors and a late touch of coconut. Fine-grained tannins come in late on a long, spice-tinged finish that echoes the vanilla and smoke notes. This wine was raised entirely in American oak. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More
  2. Castaño Solanera Viñas Viejas 2015
    WA92
    Special Price $9.98 Regular Price $14.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points! The 2015 Solanera used to wear the ultimate Spanglish label, which said "Viñas Viejas of Monastrell" even if it was always a blend (in this vintage, the blend includes 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Garnacha Tintorera). The revamped 2015 has a completely different label that only keeps the "viñas viejas" moniker. In this wine, from the joint venture with U.S. importer Eric Solomon that started in 1999, they used part of full clusters and sourced the grapes from Casa Marta, a nine-hectare, head-pruned, dry-farmed plot on very stony soils in the north of Yecla at the foot of the Mount Arabí. It fermented in concrete vats and open-top barrels and matured in barrique, each variety separately, for some ten months, after which it was blended and bottled. This is the vintage of the big change in this wine, where, as with the majority of its siblings, there is better balance and more integrated oak, more freshness and better balance. The nose is quite captivating, especially after some time in the glass, when it starts developing some floral aromas, perfect ripeness, no warmth or alcohol and a powerful, yet terribly balanced palate with concentration and elegance, fine-grained tannins and clean, focused flavors. This is my favorite Solanera to date. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com Learn More
  3. Juan Gil Honoro Vera Monastrell Organic 2017
    VM90
    $7.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! Vivid red. Pungent red berry preserve and cherry aromas are complicated by smoky mineral and floral notes. Appealing sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air but avoid jamminess. Finishes smooth and long, with gentle tannic grip and lingering spiciness. The bang for the buck here is pretty serious. (raised in stainless steel tanks) - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More

    $9.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points!  Very plush, soft and ripe berry fruit on the nose. Juicy structured fruit core with good textural persistence. Supportive ripe tannins and acidity harmonised. - Decanter World Wine Awards

  5. Primitivo Quiles Monastrell "Cono 4" 2014
    $9.98
    Availability:In Stock
    The Cono 4 bottling from Primitivo Quiles is comprised entirely of Monastrell, with the 2014 vintage coming in at the customary 14.5 percent octane for this cuvée. The wine is deep, ripe and gently raisiny on both the nose and palate, but also complex, as it wafts from the glass in a mix of black cherries, hung game, garrigue, a bit of pepper, sultana raisins and a good base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and impressively transparent for this hot region, with a good core, sound acids and fine focus and grip on the long, moderately tannic and nicely balanced finish. This carries its octane very nicely. - John Gilman, View from the Cellar
