2010 La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza - Selección Especial" Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "Dried cherries, cedar, sandalwood, tar, treacle tart, cinnamon and vanilla. Medium body, fine-grained and very silky tannins for a wine of almost 10 years of age, bright and transparent acidity and a long, very spicy finish. Like going back in time and touching an ornate tapestry. The texture is mesmerizing." (07/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2010 was a great vintage in Rioja in general and seems to be exceptional here, with a 2010 Viña Ardanza Selección Especial (what used to be Reserva Especial) that can c...

2014 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
James Suckling: "A brambly array of violet and cassis aromas with a wealth of succulent, juicy and sappy berry flavors. Slightly rustic edge to the finish." (07/2019) K&L Notes: Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Cri...

2018 Bodegas Puelles Blanco Rioja
Top Pick!
James Suckling: "Attractive, bright peach and lemon aromas lead to a palate that has fresh, chalky and minerally appeal. There’s abundant fresh fruit; melon and peach flavors holds long and fresh. Drink now." (07/2019) K&L Notes: Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja. Hailing from a long line of vineyard worker/owners, Puelles knows the terruño in his little slice of land in the Rioja Alta town of Abalos. Most of the grapes for his red wines come from his own 20 hectares, which are north-facing and located at 600 meters in altitu...

Neal Martin writes: "Located in the village of Briones in Rioja Alta, Bodegas Miguel Merino offer exemplary modern Rioja wine sourced from their own Tempranillo vines planted between 1931 and 1963 at an altitude of 550 meters above sea level. The Tempranillo vines are augmented by small plots of Mazuelo and Graciano that are occasionally bottled separately. The wine is then matured in a combination of new American, French and Hungarian oak."

2015 Marqués de Murrieta "Finca Ygay" Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: "So fresh and elegant with more than enough concentration and structure, this is a fine example of a 2015 Reserva. Ripe-blackberry, licorice, smoke and bourbon notes. I love the velvety texture of the long, intense finish. Better from 2019 and with long aging potential." (08/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red blend 2015 Rioja Reserva is 80% Tempranillo with 12% Graciano, 6% Mazuelo and 2% Garnacha, a little more Graciano and Mazuelo, something logical in ripe and warm years like 2015. It's produced with gr...

98 points James Suckling: "Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now...

Based in the Rioja Alta village of Badarán, Martínez Alesanco is a truly original bodega producing tasty, characterful wine for laughably low prices.

A K&L Direct Import! This is a new wine for us from the Bodegas Puelles stable. "Segundo año" means second year, and refers to the fact that it is released in the wine's second year following harvest. Prior to the more widespread usage of terms such as crianza, reserva and gran reserva, wineries would indicate the age of their wine by stating segundo, cuarto, quinto or whichever was the appropriate year. Not merely a quaint throwback, however, this segundo año is delicious, with bright, crisp fruit of excellent purity and a judicious amount of barrel ag...

2016 Bodegas Palacios Remondo "La Montesa" Crianza Rioja
Top Pick!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I returned to the 2016 La Montesa once it had been in bottle for almost eight months. It has all the rosemary, thyme and aromatic plants in the Monte Yerga in Alfaro. It has a note of incense. It's super juicy Garnacha with citrus freshness. It's incredible to have this quality at this price and almost unbelievable that they produced 690,000 bottles of it. A steal! Drink through 2024.

This is our latest arrival from Miguel Merino, whom we like to call "the hardest working man in Rioja." Having begun his humble "retirement project" in the early 1990s by restoring an older bodega just down the hill from the historic town of Briones, Miguel either owns or rents to own a total of around 8 hectares of vines, all of which are located in Briones; not only is this village specific Rioja, but it happens to come from one of the most sought after villages in all of Rioja Alta, where many top bodegas have some of their most prized, older vineyard...

2017 Laventura "Lanave" Rioja

Drink now" (07/2019) K&L Notes: A 50-50 blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha, with great structure, fruit and minerality, particularly for a sub-$20 bottle of red. Native South African Bryan MacRobert grew up in a farming family, and has been quietly making some of that country's best value wines.

(08/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Muga family is a lot happier about 2014 than your average Riojano, and the 2014 Selección Especial shows why.

2007 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Reserva Rioja

2009 Marqués de Murrieta "Castillo Ygay" Gran Reserva Especial Rioja
Top Pick!
96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Marqués de Murrieta didn't produce their top red in 2008, so I tasted the 2009 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial. In 2009, the final blend was Tempranillo with 19% Mazuelo (or Cariñena), one of the highest percentages of Mazuelo ever. The grapes are now sourced from the La Plana vineyard within the Ygay estate, one of the higher-altitude plots at 485 meters. The grapes fermented and aged separately, the Tempranillo in American oak barrels and the Mazuelo in French barriques for 26 months, given its power. It ha...

The palate has a very supple, long and sleek feel with impressive richness and ripeness on offer and good balance. Drink or hold." (07/2019) K&L Notes: Miguel Merino is our first direct import wine from Spain, and in our minds one of the great Rioja wineries. A single-vineyard bottling from one of their two oldest sites in Briones, planted in 1946, this cuvée takes the place of the wine formerly known as "Unnum." It's a terrific re-introduction, with d...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bottle I tasted of the 2016 Viña Real Crianza is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano from Rioja Alavesa that fermented destemmed in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and matured in French and American oak barrels for 13 to 14 months, during which time it was racked every five or six months.
