La Pell Catalonia White Blend 2013

Lagravera is one of the most innovative, dynamic young wineries operating in the under-explored depths of Catalonia. Their top white wine, labeled La Pell, is built upon Grenache Blanc and Xarello - aged in amphorae. Honeyed and stoney, the wine opens with bountiful nectarine and peach flavors, before finding a hazlenutty back half. Lemon oil and rounded rocks, it elicits so much textural complexity and depth. — 7 days ago

El Terrano


A great bargain from Trader Joe’s. Lots of black currant, blackberry, and dark plum fruit. A little barnyard funk makes it interesting. Acidity is medium strong and a little hot. Not strongly tannic, though. — 6 days ago

La Perra Gorda San Esteban Red Blend 2015

Deep, dark and lovely with a magenta rim.

Tight tannins that soften with air; black plums on the nose that get tart and red on the palate; violets that go from slightly dried to blossoming; lots of silt and clay on the nose that presents as a physical graininess on my tongue. This is a fantastic representative of what Bierzo can offer, and of what the mencia grape can do.

LaCruz Vega Terroir Tempranillo

After an evening of hedonism and day of tourism, a ten-course Michelin-starred culinary tour de force calls for a healthy dose of Spanish Syrah. Black fruit-forward and imbued with a delicate undercurrent of anise, pair with a spoonful of Nutella and a thhhhhensual accthent. — 6 days ago

Oriol Artigas

La Rumbera White Blend 2016

So much fun, a textural adventure on the palate. Aromas and and flavors of basque cider, melon, green banana, sweet tarts, tums, sea foam and oyster shell mingle about. Shows more in its texture than anything else, high CO2, crumbly and grippy in extract. Almost waxy without being weighty. — 15 days ago

El Pico Tempranillo

La Mancha Spain
Tried this on its own. Very nice, easy drinking. Would definitely be good with the recommendations below:
Staff Selection (Roger Clark): “This is a typical medium-bodied Tempranillo, showing both ripe and slightly dried fruit flavors along with intriguing spice notes. Because the wine is beautifully balanced to begin with, it succeeds in a number of different ways. It can be thoroughly enjoyable on its own but also try it with savory chicken and pork dishes.”

Estate Bottled Tempranillo

It has a nice balance between sweet and dry. I wish i could remember what I first ate with this that made me really enjoy it, but alas. — 6 days ago

Very easy drinking. Smooth, relatively light bodied, juicy fruit flavour, little smokiness to it. Very pleasant. — 8 days ago
