Alberto Nanclares

Rías Baixas Albariño 2013

Seth Morgen Long
9.3

There is a level of density and class to the Rias Biaxas of Nanclares which seems to elevate the wines above the rest of the appellation. Quintessential but out of the ordinary. Reminds me of the ways that Dagueneau or Miani transcends. This 2013 has pedigree and such a youthful fervor, no hurry here. — 17 days ago

Caballo Loco Number Fifteen Red Blend

A wine we brought back from a wine bistro called Boconariz in Santiago a couple of years ago, this is absolutely terrific. Beautiful, intense red-purple color, the tannins are sweet and rich with a great hint of camphor on the nose. Well-integrated tannins with a rich mouthfeel, that camphor component is a bit more amplified on the palate, but not overwhelming by any means. Lingering, balanced finish. Hard to gauge how much longer this will continue to develop, but my guess is that’s it’s peaking right now. Terrific example of a carmenere! — 3 months ago

Dynamite wine. Complex, perfumed and so juicy. Nose of mid early season cherries, earthy, mineral and glorious spice. Juicy and so beautiful on the palate with terrific cherry fruit, sour cherry and complex mineral tones. Great acid and freshness. Wonderful lingering finish. After air a lovely licorice element is there. Love this. Spicey finish. — 2 months ago

Grumello Valtellina Superiore Nebbiolo 2013

9.5

Wow: what a wine. Huge step up in depth, body and complexity from the Rosso 2016. Epic old school Nebbiolo nose of tar, roses, high toned mid season cherry. Old library and book aromas. Smells like a old academic’s study. Awesome. Palate is deep, rich and so so pure. Wow. Super explosive and rich fruit (2013!!) and incredible layered depth. Such length and persistence with deep red and black cherry fruit and terrific freshness. Really high quality tannins here. Brilliant. — 2 months ago
