2017 Viña Otano Fermentado en Barrica
Rioja, Spain
“Scents of beeswax and smoke introduce this wine, its oak tannins adding a nutty richness while the saltiness and acidity keep it lively. Pale, round and pleasantly buttery, this will meld with white sausages and butter beans.” 90 Points, Wine & Spirits Magazine
Regular Price $29.99 per bottle, $359.88 per case
Sale Price $19.99 per bottle, $239.88 per case

2018 Bovale Rosé
Utiel-Requena, Spain
Brilliant pink. Earthy red fruits, rhubarb, blood orange and a subtle herb nuance on the nose. Dry, slightly chewy red currant, anise and orange pith flavors take a sweeter turn as the wine opens up. Closes on a dusty mineral note, featuring repeating red fruit character and a touch of acidity. 
Regular Price $16.99 per bottle, $203.88 per case

2016 Luna Bederide Mencia
Bierzo, Spain
"The 2016 offers up a fine and impressively complex nose of pomegranate, dark berries, graphite, cola, a fine base of soil tones, a bit of roasted meats, wild fennel and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and marvelously transparent, with a good core, tangy acids and fine focus and grip on the moderately tannic, complex and classy finish. This is still priced well under twenty dollars a bottle and is a stunning bargain. Buy it by the case, as it will age beautifully!" 91 Points, View from the Cellar, 90 Points, The Wine Advocate

2017 Legado del Moncayo Garnacha Montaña
Campo de Borja, Spain
"Sourced from a higher elevation vineyard site than Legado del Moncayo’s “regular” bottling, it shows more concentrated, gutsier fruit, with a more notable suggestion of a little wood influence. The flavors recall both red and black cherries, with just a hint of spice and a subtle savory layer running beneath the fruit flavors." 91 Points, Wine Review Online

2015 Viñas Elias Mora Toro
Toro, Spain
"The 2015 Toro begins with smoky aromatics along with black fruits and chocolate rounding out the nose. Silky smooth on the mid-palate, the wine has a marvelous mouthfeel and tension. Dark cherries, black raspberry cordial, and chocolate cake flavors come to mind. Downright delicious now..."  92 Points, International Wine Report, 91 Points, Wine Enthusiast

2015 Porta Regia Monastrell 5 Meses
Jumilla, Spain
"The 2016 Barrica 5 Meses is another excellent wine, showing just a bit more precision on both the nose and palate from its short stay in barrels than the regular Old Vine bottling. The nose offers up a fine blend of black cherries, roasted meats, chicory, beautiful, salty soil tones, wild fennel, a touch of oak and a topnote of bonfires. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a fine core, excellent soil signature, suave tannins and impressive length and grip on the very well-balanced finish. Fine, fine juice." 91+ PointsView from the Cellar Issue

2014 Vega Escal Priorat
Priorat, Spain
"The 2014 vintage of Vega Escal is comprised of a blend of fifty-five percent garnaxta, twenty-five percent cariñena and twenty percent syrah. The wine is raised in a combination of French Allier and American oak casks, but only for six months’ time, so as to not get too oaky. This vintage comes in at 14.5 percent alcohol and offers up a complex bouquet of black raspberries, cassis, roasted meats, stony soil tones, garrigue and a bit of smoky new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and very well-balanced, with a fine core of fruit, good soil signature, lovely textural sophistication and a long, modestly tannic and complex finish. This is excellent juice, with a sense of restraint that is very hard to find in Priorat!"  92 Points, View from the Cellar

2012 Viña Otano Gran Reserva
Rioja, Spain
“Ruby-red. Fresh cherry, vanilla, coconut and spicecake on the assertively perfumed nose. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering a vibrant, seductively sweet red berry liqueur flavor plus suggestions of candied flowers, vanilla and smoky minerals. Closes spicy, supple and very long, with smooth tannins building slowly and folding into the wine’s energetic red fruit.” 92 Points, Vinous
