Las Colinas del Ebro Garnacha Blanca, 2009  

87 Points  Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2009 Colinas del Ebro Garnacha Blanca (100%) was made from 100-year-old vines and fermented and raised in stainless steel. Medium straw-colored, it displays a perfume of mineral, candle wax, baking spices, nutmeg, and pit fruits. On the palate it has plenty of spicy fruit, good depth and concentration, and medium length.

Bodegas y Viñedos Luna Beberide Mencia, 2008                                  

90 Points  Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Youthful purple. Fresh red- and blackcurrant aromas are brightened by racy minerality and a hint of white pepper. Lively red berry flavors are braced by firm acidity and complicated by smoky herbs. Finishes with very good length.”

BTG $ 6.25                                         Retail $15.99

Bodegas San Pedro Apostol Campellares, 2008

88 Points  Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

Bright red. Intensely perfumed bouquet offers red and dark berries, potpourri and bak­ing spices. Sweet red berry flavors display good juicy intensity, with no obvious tannins. A smooth, sweet wine with solid appeal and good finishing clarity.”

BTG $5.50                                          Retail $12.99            

 

Bodegas Arrocal , 2008

90 Points  Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Bodegas Arrocal’s purple-colored 2008 Arrocal is 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) aged for 8 months in French and American oak before bottling without filtration. Aro­mas of cedar, spice box, mineral, leather, and black fruits gives way to a surprisingly dense, intense, and savory wine that over-delivers.

BTG $7.25                                        Retail $18.99                               

 

Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos Prima, 2008

91Points  Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

95% Tinta de Toro and 5% Garnacha

Purple-colored, it displays a nose of cedar, spice box, violets, mineral, and blackberry. On the palate it is juicy, succulent, and concentrated, leading to a seamless finish .

BTG $ 9.00                                     Retail $22.99
