black licorice candy and lightly toasted oak. This multi-terroir, monovarietal wine is ample on the mid-palate and has very round, voluminous tannins. With a long and complex finish, this wine can age for up to 15 years and will pair well with a multitude of dishes."

is aged for 8 months in French oak and has a beautiful blend of dark fruits intermingled with toasted oak on the nose. The full-bodied mid-palate of this wine offers outstanding floral notes of violet mixed with dark berries, while the finish is both rich and balanced.

WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "The 2007 Reserva is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 5% each of Graciano and Mazuelo that is aged in American and French oak Read More...
for at least 15 months. It has a generous nose of red cherries, over-ripe oranges and Indian ink that is attractive, if not overly complex. The palate is rounded and slightly leathery on the entry. It constitutes a sedate, mellow Reserva that has a classical personality. There is nothing wrong with that and I appreciate the balance and refinement on the off-dry finish."

and vanilla on the nose, with suave tobacco and cedar nuances adding complexity. Sweet and open-knit red fruit flavors gain weight and depth with air, picking up licorice and cocoa powder qualities and a touch of floral pastilles. Silky tannin come on late and add shape to a long, spicy finish. I've no doubt that this is a good cellar candidate but it drinks very well right now.

shows great acidity and abundant tannins that need resolving with time in bottle. Great tension and nerve. I think it will take some time to be released, which is good as it will require some patience. Drink 2016-2021."

Cune has forever been Hi-Time Staff 1 or our top 2 wineries in Rioja. We have had the privilege through out the years of tasting their Gran Reservas as far back as the 50’s.

The 1973 Cune Vina Real Gran Reserva is extremely rare and ages up there with the best Bordeaux and Burgundy in our opinion. Softer notes of raspberry and plum with hints of cigar. Read More...
Delicate and focused with good mineral and lingering notes of wild strawberry. Pretty impressive for a wine that is 40 years old. So try a taste of history!

this effort comes from vineyards in the foothills of Sierra Cantabria. Exceptionally ripe with a dark ruby/purple color, excellent texture, and outstanding concentration, length and equilibrium, this is one of the finest value-priced Riojas in the marketplace. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years."

and candied licorice. All of the above is framed in traditional Spanish fashion with the creamy vanilla influenceof American oak. Graceful and silky on the palate, the wine evolves nicely in the glass and brings a fair amount of complexityand richness to bear for the price. The wine’s even-keeled finish let’s you down softly and brings you back for more! A moreartisinal, feminine-styled Rioja, if you will, that represents a nice change of pace from the ocean of industrial-styled winecurrently permeating the marketplace! The name Deobriga (“Divine Bridge”) comes from “Deo” meaning God and “Briga”which means Bridge. Trust us, this is one bridge you don’t want to miss crossing!

STEPHEN TANZER 91 POINTS - "Opaque ruby. Sexy, high-toned cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by notes of Indian spices and fresh rose. Read More...
Smooth and seamless in texture, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors that become spicier with air. The floral element repeats on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and persistence. This wine delivers uncanny value and has the structure to age."

When searching for our wine of the month for March, this one was roundly praised by all tasters. The nose is a sexy blend of cassis jam, blackberry pie, blackcurrant, Celon tea and charcuterie. The palate contains the same ripe, dark berries as the nose adding notes of tobacco and raw earth. Silky tannins and excellent structure, fine acidity, lead to a resounding finish with echoes of dried fruit and earthy spice.

100% Graciano
Now in the fourth generation of the Escudero family, Bodegas Y Viñedos Ilurce in general, and this Rio Madre in particular, takes full advantage of the climate and terroir in La Rioja Baja. “Lower” Rioja is drier and hotter than Rioja Alta, allowing for full ripening of and great concentration in the grapes. The Graciano grape is used mainly in the Rioja region, known for deep color, aging potential and aromatics.

WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "The 2002 Vina Tondonia Reserva is a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho and 10% between Mazuelo and Graciano sourced Read More...
from their Tondonia vineyard located in a large meander of the Ebro River on the outskirts of Haro. It is aged for six years in used barrels, racked twice per year during its upbringing and fined with egg whites before being bottled unfiltered. It has a slightly reduced nose that benefits from air contact, with shy aromas of cherries in liqueur, tea leaves, fine leather, game, blood, spice box and cigar ash, showing some evolution. The light to medium-bodied palate is balanced, with high acidity, but perhaps a little fragile, showing the difficulties of the vintage, as 2002 was a very difficult year in Rioja. 250,000 bottles were produced. Drink 2014-2019. "

From 50 Year old 100% Viura vines. The entry-level white from Rioja's greatest traditional estate, the 2004 Viña Gravonia is a remarkably serious and unique wine. Sourced from a single Read More...
vineyard called Zaconia, this wine was first developed by the estate's founder to emulate the great white wines of Graves. Four years in American Oak with a nose of quince, beeswax, verbena and honeycomb and a palate that manages both to be outstandingly decadent yet reassuringly fresh; almonds, agrumes and apricots jump from the glass, you will be especially impressed by the poise and power of the finish.

Telmo Rodriguez use the masculine name of Garnacha) and the rest Mazuelo and Graciano. It is aged for three years in used 225-liter American oak barrels (the only ones they use), racked twice per year, fined with egg whites and bottled unfiltered. It has a dark ruby color with an orange-brownish rim and a nose of red fruit, citric notes of candied orange skin and fresh blood orange, white pepper, balsamic herbs and some raw meat aromas. The palate is very polished, with balsamic flavors, sweet tannins and good acidity. A good traditional Rioja. Drink: 2013-2021."

We can count on Spain for delivering outstanding values, and this is definitely the case with this wine made of 95% Tempranilloand 5% Viura from Rioja. The wine sees no oak, and is Read More...
aged in stainless steel with partial carbonic maceration. On the nose, there are brambly blackberries and candied apple. Upon tasting, this is a medium-bodied wine with medium acidity and pomegranate, morello cherry, violets, and leaves you with an earthy finish. This delectable wine would be compatible with stuffing, while still not overpowering the turkey, and would go well with ham.
MACAN 09
MACAN 2009 RIOJA
Item: #382925
Bottle Size:750ml
WA:93
$84.95
Quantity

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS-The 2009 Macan has aromas of black rather than red fruit, ripe and intense blackberries with some floral notes developing with time. Read More...
Dense with licorice and some prune flavors, it is spicy and balsamic as well as tighter and more backward. They told me they don't like green aromas, but they also dislike notes of liqueur. Concentrated but managing to keep the freshness, it is a clean, powerful and modern red in need of a little bottle aging to polish its tannins. It will be fascinating to see how these wines develop in bottle, and how the Rioja character, the vineyards, come through with time. 40,000 bottles produced. Drink 2016-2025.

Perhaps the most eagerly-awaited new wine launch of recent years…VEGA SICILIA and BENJAMIN DE ROTHSCHILD have officially released their joint venture Rioja wines.

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "The 2009 Macan Clasico is the second wine in the Bordeaux sense, even though the name might be rather confusing and Read More...
some people might think this is the superior cuvee. It's clearly a more accessible wine than its sibling, and that's intentional. Bright ruby-colored, with some red fruit and lactic notes complemented by licorice, spices, smoke, coffee, vanilla, balsamic, smoked meat, sweet fruit, and chocolate. Elegant and harmonious, it is medium-bodied with balanced acidity and good length. It's quite approachable and pleasant to drink with some fine tannins. 27,000 bottles produced. Drink 2014-2021."
