2011 Jorge Ordonez & Co Botani 100% Muscat de Alexandria
Sierras de Malaga, Malaga, Andalucia, Spain
The exotic aromatics could fill a small room, with notes of flowers, honeyed white citrus, melons and hints of more exotic tropical fruit such as mango and tangerine. 91 PTS Robert Parker
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2010 Bodegas Nekeas Vega Sindoa Cabernet Sauvignon
Navarra, Spain
Displays plenty of creme de cassis and a touch of vanilla that is subtle and well-measured in a medium to full-bodied, deep, rich style with licorice, black currants, underbrush and a hint of cedar wood. Quite a special wine, 88 PTs Robert Parker
BTG $6.25 Retail $13.99

2011 Bodegas Ordonez Zerran Grenache, Mazuelo and Syrah
Montsant, Spain
Ratchets up the level of concentration and ripe fruit. It reveals abundant kirsch, lavender, black raspberry and dusty, loamy, earthy scents intermixed with notions of spring flowers and blackberries. There is not any oak evident in this dense effort. Its completeness and overall equilibrium are impressive. 92 Pts Robert Parker
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2010 Bodegas Avante Avante Tempranillo
Ribera Del Duero, Castilla Leon, Spain
It offers plenty of charcoal, graphite, black currant, licorice and forest floor notes in a rich, full-throttle format. 92 Pts Robert parker
BTG $8.25 Retail $20.99

2009 Finca Sandoval Signo, 90% Bobal and 10% Syrah
Manchuela, Spain
It boasts a dense purple color along with wonderful sweet, jammy strawberry and black cherry notes intermixed with floral, licorice, graphite and spice characteristics. This dense red reveals a terrific texture as well as a full-bodied mouthfeel, yet it is light on its feet.
