Tilenus Godello 2013 – 90 Points

90 Points Stone-fruit and melon aromas are crystal clean and inviting as can be. The palate blends citrus pith with creamy richness and minerality. Flavors of orange and white grapefruit are a touch pithy, while the finish brings weight, solidity and confirmation. Everything that’s good about Godello is on display. — M.S., Wine Enthusiast 5/1/2015.

Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva 2008 – 91 Points

91 Points Smoke and leather aromas are matched by dried red fruit and spice tones. This is racy on the palate, with a fairly full body. Vanilla and caramel flavors turn darker and toastier with airing, while the fruit on this older Rioja favors cherry and currant. Cocoa, tobacco notes with a juicy length define the finish. Drink through 2024. — M.S., Wine Enthusiast, 2/1/2015.

Montevannos Reserva 2005 – 92 Points

92 Points What’s great about this wine is how it blends modernity, meaning ripeness, with traditional aromas and flavors of tobacco, earth and oak. The nose is a symphony of marzipan, tobacco and dried fruit scents, while the palate is fresh, alert and houses flavors of baked cherry, plum, vanilla and mossy earth. Pure and smooth on the finish; drink now through 2018. — Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast (5/1/2013).

Ribera de Ulver Crianza 2011 – 87 Points

87 Points Dark plum and berry aromas hit with oomph and are accented by toasty, minerally notes. This Mencía is balanced and nicely textured, with blackberry, prune and licorice flavors. Some bitterness comes up on the finish, but mostly this ends like it starts, with jammy richness and dark-fruit notes. — M.S., Wine Enthusiast, 10/2013.
