Staff Pick Notes

Anyone who knows me even a little knows I’m not one for choosing drinks according to the season. I drink what I want, when I want. Though I must say after having a sip of this I want to drink it every day in autumn. Everything in this wine makes me think of colder months and warmer cuisine. A nose of blue cheese, roasted root vegetables, and fresh leather. This leads into a palate of lavish dried fruits like dates, sultanas, and cherries, all garnished with a healthy pinch of cinnamon. I’m going to take more than a few bottles of this home. So whenever I miss autumn I can pop the cork, sit on my porch, and dream of a blustery day.

Tempranillo

The best bottles are powerful and ageworthy, and are beginning to fetch prices you'd never have expected from Spanish wines just a few years ago. Tempranillo is often used in blends with Bordeaux grapes such as...

Rioja

The origin of Spanish winemaking, Rioja has been the benchmark for Spanish wines in the international market for over two hundred years, and remains so to this day. Tempranillo is the star of the red wines here, though its expression can vary wildly from producer to producer. Traditionally-styled Riojas tend to be subtle and soft, and often have high levels of acidity to ensure their survival...
