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.

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. "

The palate is very polished, with balsamic flavors, sweet tannins and good acidity. A good traditional Rioja. Drink: 2013-2021."

with exotic nuances of mace, chamomile and honey. Rich and deeply pitched but almost shockingly vibrant, offering spicy pear, nectarine and lemon pith flavors. Suavely blends richness and vivacity, finishing with excellent clarity and length. This should age at a snail's pace." (10/2011)

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - " The 1991 Vina Tondonia Blanco Gran Reserva offers shaved almond, lemon rind, honeysuckle and dandelion on the well-defined nose that demands coaxing. The palate is crisp on the entry with dried honey, dried mango and citrus peel on the entry, fanning out towards a complex, resinous finish with a hint of rosewater on the aftertaste. Drink now-2020+" (8/2012)

WINE SPECTATOR 93 POINTS - " This mature white shows traditional character of dried apple, lanolin, herb, toasted vanilla and waxy flavors. Light-bodied, but firm and balanced, with lively acidity and a finish of ginger and spices." (9/2012)

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.

Emilio Lustau Tasting Notes Still made in the traditional way and at the original strength - one of the few examples left of what cream sherry should taste like. Deep amber in colour with the taste of sweet raisins, dates and figs. Rich sweet ripe fruit that lingers smoothly and seductively. A powerful balance of sweetness, richness and maturity. As a dessert wine or as a digéstif at the end of a meal. Serve at cool room temperature.

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."

in either of the two coastal towns. This Fino was matured at Bodega Los Arcos, Lustau's main facility. 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.

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.
