Staff Pick Notes

California Cabernet fans looking to discover Old World wines should look no further than Ribera del Duero, just north of Madrid. Here you'll find Tempranillo, locally known as Tinto Fino. The intense dark fruit of the El Pedrosal is smoothed by American and French oak for 12 months, imparting notes of mocha and vanilla. The Crianza label requires one year of aging in oak barrels and an additional year in the bottle. This is just enough time in the barrel to smooth the tannins from the intense fruit while still keeping the fresh violet aroma and ripe black cherry flavor. Impress friends at your next BBQ with this phenomenal pairing.

Indeed for the better part of the twentieth century, Vega Sicilia was the single most expensive wine in Spain and, largely, the country’s major claim to fame on the international market. It wasn’t until 1972 that other winemakers began to creep into the region, but now the Ribera del Duero is home to a wealth of fabulous Tempranillo based wines that consistently garner critical...
