The Pesquera Tinto's cherry red color reveals its youth and fruitiness. Its aspect is clean and appears to be glyceric. On the nose, the wine's intense bouquet reveals the best dark fruit marked by impeccable wood aromas. Hints of fallen leaves and spices such as vanilla. On the palate, the smooth entry becomes lush with abundant ripe tannins and an excellent balance between its acidity and heat. The presence of the well-integrated oak complements the fruit and spice beautifully to display a wine of great balance. A refined, long-lasting and elegant finish.
Pairs perfectly with roasted meats, farm yard poultry, veal stews as well as semi-cured cow and/or goat cheese.
"Black cherry and red plum flavors are fresh and lively in this juicy red. Light, firm tannins and citrusy acidity keep this focused. Balanced and energetic. Drink now through 2023. Tasted twice, with consistent notes."- Wine Spectator
A bright deep red color with streaks of violet. Full and elegant on the nose, with a wide range of aromas, such as vanilla, ripe fruits, compote and syrups. The palate is opulent and elegant with harmonious tannins providing a subtle backbone to the wine; great aromatic persistence in the mouth. Designed to drink well on release, the tannins will nevertheless support at least 10 years further ageing.

"pure Tempranillo that comes from 20 to 30 different vineyards in the villages of Laguardia and Elvillar, located at altitudes of 400 and 700 meters on clay and limestone soils, from vines averaging 30 years of age that are farmed organically. It has the same vinification as the single-vineyard reds, with fermentation in oak vats and, in this case, an élevage of 12 months in French barriques. 2013 was the last year they produced Pagos Viejos, but those vineyards are either fermented or bottled separately. This is a very open, expressive vintage of this bottling, serious but at the same time easy to drink. It doesn't have the complexity or depth of the crus, but it's very worthy. This is a clean and fruit-driven vintage that fits very well with the profile of Viñas de Gaín. 100,000 bottles produced. This was very recently bottled, and it's expressive and doesn't show any dizziness."- WIne Advocate
Bodegas Riojanas’ Monte Real Gran Reserva is 100% Tempranillo. The fruit from the oldest vines are gently taken to the crush pads in tubs, where the clusters are checked one at a time on the sorting tables. The bunches are de-stemmed and after a long maceration, the grapes are crushed and fermented using the latest technology and temperature control. The wines are aged for 24-30 months in only American oak casks and then in bottle for 36 months before being released. Bodegas Riojanas’ Monte Real Gran Reserva is layered and expressive in traditional Rioja form. Red fruit aromas and flavors combine with darker fruit undertones and mingle with leather and savory notes. It has lively acidity on the palate and exhibits excellent overall balance.
Lamb is the classic match for this Rioja Gran Reserva, as the sweet spice and tannins from the American oak complement the sweet, succulent meat. But roasted fowl, beef, pork, tapas and Mediterranean vegetable dishes work equally well with this versatile wine.
Colour: Deep red, bright and brilliant colour, with a light red colour background.
Nose: Very expressive of live red fruit. Sensations of fresh cherry, light spices and some earthy wet notes.
Palate: Medium volume, light but fresh, red fruit, fine tannin. Very delicate and very long. Fresh. Ethereal.
One of Spain’s first château-style wineries, with all of its vineyards surrounding the winery, Condado de Haza focuses on sustainable farming practices with a special emphasis on preserving the regional biodiversity.
Tasting notes: Intensely garnet red in color, the Crianza's juicy notes of ripe berries are accented by soft touches of sweet spice and violet on the palate.
95% Tempranillo and 5% Merlot from biodynamically farmed vineyards. 5 different parcels distinguished by the presence of round river stones (“cantos”) contributed grapes to the blend with an average age of the vines being 35 years. Parcels were chosen based on aromatic and structural traits. It is aged for sixteen months in French oak barrels.
"A velvety texture carries bright flavors of cherry, currant and kirsch in this lively red. Vanilla and candied orange notes give this an impression of sweetness, while bright acidity keeps this fresh. Focused and deep. Tempranillo and Merlot. Drink now through 2028."- WS
The 2012 Corimbo is pure Tempranillo from the Burgos part of Ribera del Duero (La Horra, Roa, Sotillo, Gumiel); it was fermented in stainless steel tanks, went through malo in French oak vats and matured in some 10-20% new oak barrels, mostly French but with some 20% American. After some 14 months, the wines are transferred from barriques to oak vats where they stay for a further six months. The color is bright ruby with a nose that shows red fruit and nicely integrated oak, with a spiciness that shows not only the usual vanilla and cinnamon, but also some more exotic aromas reminiscent of curry, plus plenty of wild flowers and Mediterranean herbs.
"A full and rich red with berry and dark chocolate character with hints of walnuts. Velvety and flavorful. Really beautiful. Drink now" - James Suckling
This is a wine for a special occasion. Recommended to pair with roasted meats, lamb, hearty stews and cured cheeses.
Locations E-2 Spanish Red Wine is a blend of Grenache from Priorat, Rioja and Toro, Tempranillo from Rioja, and Carignan from Ribera del Duero and Carinyena. It has the same fermentation and upbringing as the French and Italian wines. Majestic, soaring black fruit aromas intermixed with forest floor, white flowers and kirsch emerge from this full-bodied, opulent, voluptuously textured red along with stunning richness and depth.
A fresh berry aroma is overpowered by an earthy overtone in this wine. This is holding up on the palate, while flavors of roasted berry fruits are just not that ripe, a lasting reflection of a cold vintage.
The Lindes de Remelluri, meaning “Borders of Remelluri”, crafts a vision of terroirs by focusing on the distinct styles of wines from Labastida and San Vincente. This selection is sourced form 21 vineyards of 8 growers around the town of Labastida. The cooler, rockier and higher elevation sites here produce a wine that is lower in alcohol but higher in acidity and tannins than that of San Vicente.
Tasting Notes Intense fresh fruit on the nose, backed by aromatic plants. On the palate we find fresh fruit also, with a very long finish.
Vinification Fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and aged 12 months in French oak.
Sierra Cantabria Crianza is a fruity red wine with a spicy/toasted edge. It is well balanced with the persistence of Tempranillo.
"Brilliant ruby. Pungent red berry and cherry scents are energized by mineral and pipe tobacco notes. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air and smoothly blend richness and liveliness. Finishes supple and long, with gentle tannic grip and a lingering suggestion of candied flowers."-Vinous Media
The 2016 Sonnet Tempranillo is composed of 100% Tempranillo from the Gali Vineyard. Oncew fermentation was complete 38% of the wine was aged in Hungarian oak. The wine was then bottled unfined and unfiltered. Only 170 cases were produced. Tony writes, “In the 1980s, a summer had arrived and there was no acting work in sight, so I picked up my back pack and started hitch hiking throughout Europe. When I arrived in Spain, I came across a wonderful wine varietal, Tempranillo, and it had the most aromatic aroma I had ever noticed in any wine. Since I became a winemaker, I have been searching for a great Califonia Tempranillo vineyard and finaly found one a few years ago, and this is the first Sonnet offering from that quest. It shows an amazing depth of fruit, from plums and blackberry to hints of black cherry. It is a robust wine that has been aged for more than two years in oak barrels and will age gracefully in bottle for many years to come.”
Few food and wine pairings can top a delicious Tempranillo matched with grilled lamb chops. The Sonnet Tempranillo pairs nicely with medium to strong-flavored semi-hard and hard cheeses (Manchego), and dishes with tomatoes and tomato sauces. It also pairs beautifully with regional Spanish dishes such as caldo de temporada-Galician style pumpkin-chicken soup, smoked bacon, chorizo, potato and broccoli rabe, or costilla al vino tinto-Tempranillo-braised short ribs, confit potatoes and crispy leeks.
This big yet smooth wine has it all. 12 months in French oak, a magical blend of great grapes from various growers in Ribera.
Ripe plumb, and black fruit with a predominance of red plums and cherries, typical of high and cold areas, sweet and fine spices with aromas of low mountain and understory, assembled with elegant roasted oak aromas.
Taste: Freshness in the mouth, broad and structured, very intense fruit load, sweet and ripe tannins, very full in fruit flavors, aromatic herbs and licorice. End of mouth long and persistent.
Made from 100% Tempranillo, the Roble is the workhorse wine of Viña Sastre.
