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."

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. "

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
