    WS91
    JS91
    $14.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points! A thick, firm texture carries ripe flavors of blackberry and fig paste in this solid red. Notes of dark chocolate, smoke and forest floor add complexity. The tannins are well-integrated, and balsamic acidity keeps this lively. Tempranillo and Mazuelo. Drink now through 2028. - Wine Spectator Learn More
  2. La Rioja Alta Rioja Gran Reserva Viña Arana 2012
    JS95
    $36.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points! Brambleberries, licorice, dried blueberries, cedar, tobacco, smoke, vanilla, dried citrus and even a hint of grapefruit. The lazer-sharp acidity evinces a real sense of purity, and the tannins are really edgy and structured. Full-bodied but very elegant and stylish. The finish goes on and on, thanks to the shimmering acidity. Beautiful now, but better in 2024. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  3. 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

  5. Perez Pascuas Ribera Del Duero Reserva Vina Pedrosa La Navilla 2012
    JS92
    WA93
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93+ Points! The single-vineyard 2012 Viña Pedrosa la Navilla Reserva is sourced from the vineyard that surround the winery in the village of Pedrosa de Duero planted some 40 years ago on sand-rich soils. It matured in French Allier barrels for 20 months. Surprisingly enough, they tell me in 2012 they harvested later than in 2010, 2011 and 2014, and consider 2012 the cooler of the four mentioned vintages. Even with that, the wine has half a degree less alcohol than the 2014 vintage of this very same wine. This vineyard is on sandier soils at 844 meters altitude, their highest vineyard that results in very low yields (22-23 hectoliters per hectare), and was identified as a vineyard that year after year produces fresher wines with very good acidity and plenty of balsamic aromas. This 2012 is truly impressive, among the freshest from the vintage. - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate #228

  6. Olivier Riviere Tinto El Cadastro Arlanza 2012
    JS91
    WA94
    VM92
    $34.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points!  The 2012 Vinas del Cadastro is a blend of four vineyards in the village of Covarrubias (Burgos), planted with old Tempranillo vines; and as with all old vineyards there are some other varieties interplanted in the field, in this case some 5% Garnacha. 50% of full clusters were used for the vinification in open plastic bins with indigenous yeasts. In 2012, Rivière did a lighter extraction, as the grapes had enough tannins, and what you needed was to get a balanced juice. The different plots were matured in 300- and 600-liter French oak casks separately, then blended after almost two years and kept in vat for five-six months before being bottled. The characteristic of this wine is always a floral, exuberant and expressive nose (a character that Riviere think comes for a plot called La Tizona), but with volume, nice acidity and much finer tannins than in previous vintages, which makes it approachable yet powerful. There are fine spices and something earthy, a little mealy and malty, really showy and expressive. This is an elegant, really impressive Arlanza, drinkable now and with the stuffing, balance and acidity to develop nicely in bottle. This is the finest and better balanced Vinas del Cadastro so far. This is an incredible value for money. Some 3,700 were filled in May 2015.  Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate #221, October 2015
