Alta Alella

Oriol Artigas

'El Rall' Alella Red Blend

I don’t claim to be an expert on Spanish wine (or wine in general) but Oriol Artigas makes my favorite wine coming out of Spain. Complex natural and funky. The el Rall is complex with notes of plums and brown sugar but opens up to be medium body with a crazy good finish. — 23 days ago

Seriously great wine. Dark, fleshy, abundant fruit, well structured, long and elegant tannin structure. More serious than I expected and probably should have waited to open it... — 7 days ago

2014 was a difficult vintage in Italy for everyone.
Enjoy this wine now over the short term while you wait for 2015 and 2016 Brunello.

Monte Real Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo 1995

This was a thing of beauty. After an hour decant, it was singing! Balance of primary, secondary and tertiary flavours. Delicious. — 18 days ago

Tierra Alta Vineyard Syrah 2008

Spice, red and black fruit aromas and flavors framed by a kiss of oak, this seems at peak now, medium-long finish, solid Syrah! — 21 days ago

Bodegas Muga

Rioja Viura Malvasia 2020

Oak aged but not clumsily, so clean & sharp. Presents like a Macon with some zip. Muga brings such value. — a day ago

I find there’s huge value from Rioja generally.

Bodegas Riojanas

Viña Albina Reserva Cenicero Tempranillo Blend 1964

A wonderful bottle. Gorgeous deep plum fruit, black cherry, damson, bloodiness, violet. Some secondary notes of leather. Inky. Astonishingly fresh for a wine over 50 years. Dark and rich in color. Crystalline. An exceptional bottle. — 15 days ago

Mas d'en Gil

Coma Alta Priorat Grenache Blanc 2016

What a wonderful Priorat wine estate is Mas d’en Gil. Not only the red Priorat’s are superb, so is this Coma Alta white. Made of 100% Garnatxa Blanca (Grenache Blanc) and from a great vintage. The Coma Alta is not as complex as it’s bigger brother Coma Blanca, but offer lots of nuances still, in terms of ripe white fruit, a bit of wood and vanilla, and a bit of spice. Great length! — 22 days ago
