James Suckling 92 points. Blueberry and blackberry aromas and flavors. Hints of black tea. Full body. Layered and very rich. Juicy and succulent. Some mahogany at the end. Drink now Laya is a blend of 2 grape varieties, Garnacha Tintorera and Monastrall. The grapes come from the winery's own vineyards that lie at an altitude of 700-1000 metres above sea level, with limestone soils. The climate of the local area has a low level of rainfall. The vinification process begins with the maceration of the grape before fermentation. The two grape varieties ferment seperately in stainless steel tanks for 15days at a controlled temperature of 25ºC....
Decanter 92 points. This wine is a single-variety of Monastrell from old vineyards that are between 40 and 75 years old located in Sierra de la Sima. The altitude of the vineyards provides a particular microclimate, continental with Mediterranean influences, that causes temperature variations between day and night. This results in a good balance between the optimal ripening and the acidity that gives the wine a touch of freshness. Full bodied and muscular. The grapes are harvested manually and refined for 14 months in French oak barrels.
Wine Advocate 95 points. "Dark spices, ripe fruit, something balsamic and a round, full-bodied palate within the straight and serious style of the wine...This has fine, slightly grainy tannins with good grip. A textbook Imperial Gran Reserva." Cune Imperial Grand Reserva is considered by some as one of the great wines of Spain. Its 2014 vintage was selected by the prestigious magazine the WineSpectator as the best wine in the world. It is a blend made from Tempranillo as the main variety with a small percentage of Mazuelo and Graciano. The grapes come from old vines planted 45 years ago in the town of Villalba. The harvest is done manually,...
"The bottle I tasted of the 2016 Viña Real Crianza is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano from Rioja Alavesa that fermented destemmed in stainless steel with neutral yeasts and matured in French and American oak barrels for 13 to 14 months, during which time it was racked every five or six months. It's expressive, deliciously aromatic, floral and elegant, reflecting a cool year that delivered fresh wines that seem to be very approachable early on. 2016 is a pretty vintage, but this wine is not banal; it has depth and complexity that's remarkable for the price point. The palate is fresh and balanced, with fine...
97 Tim Atkin MW A step up on the memorable 2009, this shows just how special the 2010 vintage was. Marrying fruit from Briñas, Villalba and Rodezno, it's a perfectly judged marriage of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano. Savoury wild herb notes segue into a palate that's focused, balanced and graceful with the concentration and backbone to age. Drinking Window: 2019 - 2035. Wine Advocate 96+. It seems like yesterday when the superb 2001 was released, and now I already have the 2010 Gran Reserva 904 in my glass. It has to be among the greatest modern time vintages of this mythical bottling, where they aim for a wine that has a long aging...
~ Buy Six and Pay $72 net ~ James Suckling 96 points. "Astonishing fragrance for a Toro red, married to a huge body and a massive tannin structure in a way that’s without comparison in Spain and the world. Very long, plush finish that gets more and more delicate as it extends in the direction of the horizon. Drink or hold. This should have decades ahead of it." JS. Numanthia is the most emblematic wine from Bodega Numanthia, and is considered as one of the great wines from D.O. Toro. Numanthia gets its name from Numancia, a city famous of the resistance of an epic attack from the Roman army. The citizens defenced the city until the end,...
Wine Advocate 93+. Produced with 100% Tinto Fino or Tempranillo grapes in a modern and fruit-forward style with generous oak, the 2015 Alión is juicy and intense, cropped from a warm and dry year that delivered a 15% alcohol red that is voluptuous and hedonistic. It matured for 12 to 14 months in oak barrels, mostly French and mostly new. At first I found it quite ripe, with black rather than red fruit, a little earthy and with a touch of licorice and ink. The palate reveals abundant, slightly dusty tannins without the quality they had in 2014; it's a little dry on the finish, a riper and more powerful vintage of Alión. The nose improved...
Purchase 6 or more and pay 65 sgd per bottle. Wine Advocate 96 points. Following the appreciation of the 2007 vintage from María José López de Heredia, the red 2007 Viña Tondonia Reserva is showing great, revealing unusual finesse and elegance. The nose is a little reticent but nuanced and complex, a little shy rather than explosive. The palate is medium-bodied, and the tannins are very refined. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Viña Tondonia Reserva of recent years. 200,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2015. LG 2019.
