WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "The 2010 Vinas de Gain red, from a very balanced vintage is made with Tempranillo sourced from different vineyards Read More...
in Laguardia averaging 30 years of age. It is fermented in open stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak barrels for one year. It’s a little closed and requires some time to start showing its nose. The palate is explosive, with clean acidity and balance, pure, hedonistic with great depth. It slowly develops some minty, balsamic aromas coating the red fruit, with even notes of fennel. 150,000 bottles were produced. Drink 2014-2022. "

WINE ENTHUSIAST 91 POINTS - "Everything about this highly functional Rioja is nice. The nose is fresh, minerally and shows complexities like cinnamon aromas and herbs. The palate is snappy and racy, but not shear or acidic. Flavors of plum, berry and oak are pure and bold, while the finish is dry, lightly toasted and shows minerality and coffee notes. Drink through 2019. "

INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 91 POINTS - - "Assertive red fruit and floral scents are brightened by a minerally nuance. Spicy, penetrating and gently sweet, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors and a touch of rose. The long finish features gentle tannic grip and very good spicy lift, leaving a cherry pit note behind."

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.

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. Our reactions are always the same, we ooh and awe, treasuring every sip. Just recently Wine Spectator’s Top 100 garnered Cune Imperial 2004 Gran Reserva as their #1 Wine of the Year. A truly fantastic vintage and yes, we sold out earlier in the year. We are able to offer their 2005 Gran Rerserva, which is another stellar year for Rioja. Limited supply.

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!

LA TIMES WINE OF THE WEEK! (3/19/14) - "One of Spains great Bodegas - Still family owned to this day, dating back to 1861. Don Julio Faustino is at the helm. Faustino is possibly the best known Rioja around the world and Faustino 1 the Gran Reserva certainly sets the benchmarks for others to follow."

The evidence is in and the verdict is undeniable. The Faustino Gran Reserva offers one of the most incredible wine values on the planet. Where else can you get a 97 point-rated wine crafted by a legendary producer, which is aged for more than a decade in their cellar-all for under $30.00? Did we mention 2001 was a great vintage in Rioja? The price of admission for one of the world’s greatest wines is extraordinarily inexpensive. This wine is beguiling, complex and elegant. It remains fresh with nice fruit and delicious, savory flavors. This wine will age, but is drinking beautifully right now.

WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "The 2004 Gran Reserva 904 is Tempranillo from Brinas, Labastida and Villalba balanced with 10% Graciano from Briones and Rodezno. Read More...
The grapes were fermented and macerated in inox vats for 14 days at 28º C, and malolactic fermentation lasted 28 days. The wine aged for 4 years in used American oak barrels averaging 4 years old, during which time it was manually racked 8 times. 150,000 bottles were filled. This 2004, from a superb vintage shows a beautiful light red color with a brick rim and a superb nose redolent of balsamic woods, spices, leather, well-hung meat, incense and truffles. The light to medium-bodied palate shows fully resolved tannins, great acidity and pure, pungent flavors that linger in the mouth forever and that can only be Rioja. This is a wine to smell over and over again. It might sound like an exaggeration, but this wine is still too young and you should wait a little bit and drink the superb 2001 vintage which should still be available on the market while this one matures in bottle. At this quality level the price is superb especially considering that the wine is being released 10 years after the vintage. Drink 2016-2024."

in a silky texture, supported by light, firm tannins and balsamic acidity. Focused and fresh, with a juicy finish. Drink now. 50,000 cases made." -TM

"This old-school Rioja from the La Rioja Alta, an estate that dates to 1890, is consistently worth seeking out for its quality-to-price ratio. The latest release is the 2005, and it has everything going for it: gorgeous fruit, enticing aromas of red fruit, sweet spices and tobacco, and a long, smooth finish. Tannins are soft and round, the effect elegant. A blend of Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha (Grenache), the 2005 Viña Ardanza is layered with complex flavors yet still fresh at 10 years of age. You keep going back to the glass to see how the wine evolves through the meal."
By S. IRENE VIRBILA

Bodega La Rioja Alta was formed in 1890 and is an outstanding producer, supplying fully mature wines of world class quality. The wines are made in the traditional Riojan manner with Tempranillo as the primary grape along with careful aging in oak and bottle that gives Rioja its unique character. The La Rioja Alta wines display a wonderful rich ruby color, gorgeous aromas of oak, spices and fruit followed by a sensational feel on the palate. These wines offer a wonderfully complex bouquet, rich flavors, a seductively smooth texture and are ready to drink upon release.

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. "
