  • Vinas del Cenit Cenit 2004


    The deep purple-colored 2004 Cenit offers more nuances, complexity, and aromatic intensity (graphite, blackberries, blueberries, and spice box) than the 2003 along with great elegance allied with fabulous richness and full body. It should drink well for a decade. Think of it as a more delineated, complex version of the 2003. -Jay Miller Wine Adv... Read More

  • Villacreces Ribera del Duero 2003


    Good structure, tannins are not overwhelming and well-balanced with the dark fruit. Outstanding value. Doesn't need any food. Read More

  • Abadia Retuerta Red Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Pago Valdebellon 2005


    This ambitious, expensive wine comes in an extremely heavy bottle, ostentatiously sending out the message that the liquid is important. This is a bad habit that some boutique, cult wines are pursuing. It's unnecessary. If the wine is good, it'll speak for itself. In these times of increased environmental sensitivity, making a bottle that adds so... Read More

  • Viña Albali Valdepeñas Reserva 1998


    A meduim ruby hue. Horse saddle and hints of caramel and smokey oak greet the nose. Followed by a cherry, blueberry and cranberry medley with subtle stone friut blossom notes. The palate is greeted with a sweet ripe fruit burst right out of the gate balanced with good acidity providing some spine. Bordering on a full-bodied mouth-feel from well ... Read More

  • Abadia Retuerta Tempranillo Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Cuvée El Palomar 2005


    This Tempranillo/Cabernet blend is sensational, and I would argue the best Palomar yet. I'd like to suggest it's a better, more satisfying overall experience than the much more expensive Valdebellón, so therefore a far better value. It has a wonderful, sensual, suggestive, inviting nose of brambly forest fruit, macadamia nut, cream, raisins and ... Read More

  • Abadia Retuerta Tempranillo Blend Vino de la Tierra Castilla Y León Selección Especial 2006


    One of Spain's great values, made mostly out of Tempranillo, supported by smaller quantities of Cabernet and Merlot. Attractive nose of forest fruit and gentle, toasty spiciness. Not quite as good as the 2004 and 2005 it lacks the complexity of these previous vintages. But with its nice, plump berry fruit and restrained oak presence, it remains... Read More

  • Numanthia Termes 2004


    Made from 100% Tinta de Toro (the local name for Tempranillo) from pre-phylloxera ungrafted vines. Alcohol b.v. 14.5%.Frustratingly, this celebrated wine didn't match my expectations. I've had every vintage since 1998 and still consider Numanthia to be one of Spain's emblematic "new"; wines. It's highly regarded by the critics: you're looking at... Read More
