  1. 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

  3. Numanthia Termes 2015
    WA90
    Special Price $12.98 Regular Price $24.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points!  Cropped from a warm and ripe year, the entry-level 2015 Termes was able to keep its poise and balance. It has balsamic aromas and flavors, with sweet fruit on the palate. It's 15% alcohol and matured in French barriques for 14 months. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

  4. Venus La Universal Monstant Dido 2016
    JS92
    WA93
    $20.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! The red 2016 Dido has the ripeness and depth of the 2015 but with extra freshness that makes it go an extra mile in length. It has the complex mix of grapes, mostly Garnacha with Syrah and perhaps 10% of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and the different soils, as it comes from different vineyards in different parts of the appellation.  - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

  5. Cooperativa Cristo del Humilladero Garnacha Granitos de Cadalso 2017
    WA90
    $13.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90-91 Points!  This is a joint venture between the cooperative of Cadalso de los Vidrios Cooperative and Comando G. 2016 was a cool and balanced year that provided ideal ripeness. The wine fermented in concrete vats were it was kept for some seven months until bottling. This is the private bottling for European Cellars, a US importer, but a similar wine might be offered under other names. As I was anticipating, this 2016 was even more impressive than 2015. This is a true Gredos wine with incredible aromatics, granite, altitude and Garnacha, a spice market in Marrakesh! The palate is as impressive as the nose, with focused, clean flavors, tension and the textured structure provided by the granite. More elegant and even deeper than the 2015, it's super tasty and long. This was the final blend waiting to be bottled in a couple of weeks, but the final wine should be pretty similar to what I tasted. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

  6. Raul Perez Atalier a Cruz Das Animas Albarino Rias Baixas 2017
    WA92
    $21.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92+ Points!  The second vintage of the Albariño 2017 Atalier fermented in 5,000-liter oak foudre and stainless steel, approximately 50/50 of each. It has a clean and discrete nose, but the surprise is the vibrant palate with a long wine, lifted and fresh, with subdued minerality and a tasty, serious finish. I think this is going to age nicely. -  Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

  7. 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

  8. La Rioja Alta Rioja Reserva Vina Ardanza 2009
    JS96
    $29.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! Very fresh and vivid 2009 with berries, dark spice and hints of walnuts. Full-bodied, reserved and so held back and muscular, but you don’t feel the tannins and the strength. A great wine. Give it two or three years. Try in 2020.- James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
