LAS ROCAS 12 RED BLEND

Founded in 1962 as a growers’ co-operative, Bodegas San Alejandro (BSA) is located in the tiny town of Miedes, about 55 miles north of Madrid in the province of Zaragoza. Today, over Read More...
350 local growers farm nearly 3,000 acres of vineyard in the Calatayud winegrowing region to supply the grapes they use for Las Rocas. Primarily Garnacha (Grenache), with Tempranillo and Syrah, this red blend is a powerful reminder of how well these grapes can thrive in northeastern Spain and how good the wines made from them can be when in the right hands. This is the exact type of wine we constantly look for when it comes to our wine of the month program: the quality and value are both very high, the cost is quite reasonable. That’s pretty much it, in a nutshell.

The nose is rich and multilayered, with lots of dark fruit scents, blackberries, dark plums, meshed with Dutch licorice, graphite, earth, exotic florals, cigar box and peppercorn. Black fruits dominate on the palate but are balanced with good acidity. The mouthfeel is lush but not over-the-top, as the fruits play with baking spices, earthy minerality and a soupçon of black pepper. The mid-length finish reverberated with the dark fruit theme, receding gently. Perfect late summer, early fall wine-- get away one more weekend, or keep the grill handy for that last barbecue as this wine will help the sun shine just a bit longer.

adding lift. Round, supple and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated blueberry and cassis flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Shows impressive energy and power on the finish, which is shaped by smooth, harmonious tannins that are quickly absorbed by the wine's fruit. There's serious bang for the buck here."

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.

flowers and spices on the nose, with a smoky nuance emerging with aeration; very fresh for this notoriously hot vintage. Concentrated but not at all heavy, with intense red berry and floral pastille flavors and a deeper note of singed plum. The finish is bright and high-pitched, with lingering cherry and raspberry flavors and a hint of candied licorice."

WINE ADVOCATE - "The 2006 Vina Cubillo Tinto Crianza is a blend of 65% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho (some wineries, like Lopez de Heredia, Muga or Read More...
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."

The Canary Islands There is a Spanish region so far off the beaten path that it's a stretch to think of it as Spain at all – but even if it lies off the coast of west Africa, the Canary Read More...
Island archipelago is part of the Spanish Republic. A trickle of these unusual wines is entering the market here and worth seeking out, no matter what the season. The Canary Islands' dramatic volcanic formations support flora and fauna that might rival the Galapagos in wonder and stark weirdness. And its viticulture, like the vineyards on the island Lanzarote, is some of the most visually stunning on Earth. Planted in deep black sand, the vines are protected from the wind by stone walls built between vine rows; in some cases, vignerons build a semicircular cairn for each vine, where natural forces create a virtual crater for each wind-bitten vine, a vinous moonscape unlike any other vine region in the world.And the wines? In such a warm climate, the whites, made from the heat-resistant Malvasia and the indigenous Diego, are deeply colored, mineral and exotic. Perhaps it's a stretch to think of these as spring wines, but they're simply too interesting not to mention.The Malvasia Seco from La Bermejos on the island of Lanzarote gives off a lovely citrus oil scent to complement rich fig and pear skin flavors.

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.

WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "The 2009 Crianza, a blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Garnacha aged for 12 months in French and American oak, sports a very Read More...
polished bouquet with dark cherries, sloes and fresh fig. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, good acidity and impressive structure towards the finish that has a convincing sense of symmetry and focus. This is a very natural, sophisticated Crianza meriting aging. Drink 2014-2020.

Bodegas Luis Canas owns 90 hectares of vine. This is augmented by 200 hectares under long-term contract, dispersed over 815 parcels. These wines were imbued with wonderful purity and sophistication, managing to tread that fine line between modernism and classicism and embracing the virtues from the two. Moreover, I found that these wines evoked a sense of place, something that not all Rioja wines do. These all comes highly recommended."

Luis Canas wines are not news in Spain, but they only cracked the market in the U.S. 3-4 years ago. We're big fans. The Gran Riserva Rioja was part of our Tempranillo cover last year and the beautiful "Seleccion de la Familia" Reserva is a staple in the Rioja section when it's available. The newly arrived 2009 Crianza is stellar--showing brightness, depth, and purity. The 92 point review from the Wine Advocate will tell you all you need to know about Canas. The notes about balance between a "modern style" and "tradition" are right on.

WINE ADVOCATE 89 POINTS-"The NV East India Solera is a Cream, a category I have not really covered in this article, which is a blend of 12-year-old Don Read More...
Nuno Oloroso (80%) and San Emilio PX which is also about 12 years old, blended and aged together for a further three years in a special, slightly warmer part of the winery which replicates perhaps the character of the wines that traveled by boat to India or elsewhere. Mahogany colored with a green-amber edge, it has the nose of an old wine with notes of antique shop, wax, shoe polish, noble wood, and a touch of spices, dates and prunes, all of it very well integrated. The palate is spicy and sweet (it has 130 grams of sugar) again very integrated. At this price level it represents good value and should go well with cheeses. Drink 2013-2020."

The building, constructed in 1862, sits at N° 53 Calle de los Arcos in the geographic center of town. The wine was drawn from two butts out of a solera of 708 and was bottled without filtration. The Fino de Jerez develops extra textural interest in the mouth with resin and bitter orange notes and a nice, sappy tang on the finish.

began his second journey to the Americas. It forms the southernmost corner of the sherry triangle and it enjoys mild weather for the majority of the year. This Fino was matured at Bodega del Drago, which is located less than one mile from La Puntilla beach. It was drawn from two butts out of a solera of 347 and was bottled without filtration. The Puerto is perhaps the most nuanced of Lustau's "En Rama" bottlings as it exhibits pronounced mineral and toasted almond notes that lead into a tautly drawn, lingering finish.
