Cune Rioja Made with Organic Grapes

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 58037

RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
The certified organic red 2020 Cune Organic is aromatic, expressive and fruit-driven but with depth and complexity. They liked the Garnacha in 2020, which represents no less than 60% of the blend, complemented by 30% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano. The wine is fresh and has a profile similar to the young and juicy Crianza, with good ripeness and a solid palate. It matured in second use 300-liter oak barrels for six months. Urrutia mentioned cheerful and barbecue when talking about this wine. Very good at that. 40,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2022. (Luis Gutiérrez)
VN8989 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
Deep, lurid ruby. Ripe black and blue fruits, candied flowers and a hint of licorice on the perfumed nose. Sappy and velvety in texture, offering bitter cherry and blueberry flavors that turn sweeter with air. Finishes long and smooth, with repeating spiciness, a hint of cola and round, even tannins.

Item #: 61097

JS9090 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, September 9, 2022
An easy but quite well-balanced Rioja Crianza, delivered in a medium body with some chalky tannins and fresh acidity. Cheerful cherry and plum flavors with a touch of juicy blue fruit. Just a hint of cream in the finish. Tempranillo. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. (James Suckling)
WE8787 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2023
This wine offers aromas of purple plum and black-olive paste. Soft in the mouth, it has feathery tannins and flavors of pomegranate, cranberry, clove, orange zest and hints of oregano. (Mike DeSimone)
SP8686 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 31, 2023

La Rioja Alta Rioja Gran Reserva 890

2005 / 750 ml.

Item #: 53423

VN9797 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
Shimmering garnet. Aromas of dried cherry, potpourri, vanilla, cigar box and exotic spices; a smoky mineral quality builds in the glass. Sweet, concentrated and seamless on the palate, offering cherry compote, red currant and rose pastille flavors that put on weight and pick up a spicy nuance on the back half. Conveys a suave blend of power and delicacy and closes sweet and gently tannic, with superb persistence and an echo of candied flowers and red fruits. This bottling and the 2001 are the only Selección Especial versions of the 890 Gran Reserva that have been produced by La Rioja Alta.
RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2019
I tasted the 2005 Gran Reserva 890 again, and I liked it better this time than in my previous review, even if I normally like the Gran Reserva 904 better than this bottling, as I find it better balanced. I tend to feel less energy in this wine, as it spends a very long time in barrel, six years in this case. 2005 was an excellent vintage, and they implemented some improvements in the harvest, introducing 350-kilo boxes and refrigerated transport to the winery, which they think provides better grapes and potentially better quality of the wines. The palate is medium-bodied, the tannins have mostly melted, and it has lively acidity that lift the wine up. This is a very classical and polished Rioja. 57,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2012.
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2018
Cedar and sandalwood aromas give way to flavors of tea, tobacco, dried cherry, forest floor and orange peel in this expressive red. Round on the palate, supported by muscular tannins and juicy acidity. Big but graceful, mature yet lively, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2030. 4,753 cases made.

Bozeto de Exopto

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 53740

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, November 2, 2020
A creamy, full-bodied red with plum and berry character. Nice purity of fruit to this. It’s full-bodied and layered with polish and beauty. Lovely tannins here. Drink or hold.
RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
The red 2019 Bozeto de Exopto is a blend of 50% Tempranillo from Ábalos with the Mediterranean touch of 40% Garnacha and 10% Graciano from Alfaro to add freshness. He wants the wine to express the Garnacha character, and it does but in a subtler way than if it was a varietal bottling. But all the grapes seem nicely integrated and complement each other. The wine fermented in a combination of stainless steel, concrete vats and used barriques, where it matured for six months. 2019 is a warmer, Mediterranean vintage, and the wine is soft and approachable, juicy and fruit driven. 75,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019, earlier than in cooler years.
VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
Saturated ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented dark berry, cherry and licorice scents are complicated by suggestions of violet and mocha. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering blackberry and cherry cola flavors that are braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes smoky, smooth and long, with velvety tannins and repeating dark fruit and licorice notes.

Viña Real Rioja Crianza

2017 / 750 ml.

Item #: 56048

VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
Opaque ruby. Cherry, dark berries, pungent flowers and spices on the fragrant nose. Round and open-knit, offering juicy blackberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that take a sweeter turn with air. Finishes with slowly building tannins, repeating florality and very good, vaguely smoky persistence.

JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, November 22, 2021
Sweet berries, cherries, cedar and dried flowers on the nose. Some lemon and lime zest, too! Medium-to full-bodied with tight, integrated tannins that show wonderful length and reserve. So fresh and vivid. Lots of energy. A wonderful, classic wine. Drink or hold.
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
As with many wines this time, I had two vintages to taste of the Reserva from the Tondonia vineyard, 2009 and 2008, two very different, almost opposite vintages. The 2009 Viña Tondonia Reserva, a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho and 5% each Mazuelo and Graciano, matured in used American oak barrels for six years. It has some toasted character, with ripe fruit, black rather than red, denoting a warm year but more restrained than the Bosconia Reserva from the same vintage. 2009 is a year of ripeness, concentration and tannin; the wines are powerful, but here you see the finesse of Tondonia in comparison to the more rustic Viña Bosconia. 220,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2017.
WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 12/21
From the López de Heredia family’s prime vineyard on a meander of the Ebro just outside of Haro, Tondonia is a blend of tempranillo with 20 percent garnacha along with small amounts of graciano and mazuelo. It’s a little volatile when first released from its long rest in bottle, then it turns silken and mouthwatering with air, a bright, lively and refreshing take on traditional Rioja. Brisk cherry and delicate orange zest notes make this an easy pleasure, fully mature with ample tannins to carry it further, equally at home with a plate of hake cheeks or a rabbit stew.

Muga Reserva

2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 56934

JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, February 3, 2022
This was the only red that Muga made in 2018, and the wines from the best vineyards went into the blend. In other words, top vineyards were declassified. Medium-bodied with very fine tannins that are caressing and refined. Plenty of subtle berries, chocolate and walnuts. Tempranillo with garnacha, mazuelo and graciano. January 2021 release. Drink or hold.
JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 6/13/2022
The 2018 Muga Reserva is a similar blend and has pretty, slightly fresher notes of darker, almost blue fruits as well as violets, spring flowers, and cedary oak. More medium-bodied on the palate, it shows the fresher, elegant style of the vintage, has beautiful tannins, no hard edges, and outstanding length on the finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2022
A harmonious red, medium-bodied and lightly juicy, layering light, creamy tannins with a pretty range of black cherry reduction, mocha, pomegranate puree and eucalyptus notes. Fresh, focused finish. Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano. Drink now through 2028. 80,000 cases made, 15,000 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)

Macán Clásico

2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 57722

RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Dec 2021
Their second wine in the Bordeaux sense is the 2018 Macán Clásico, which in the cooler and late year (they picked between October 2nd and 14th) fermented in stainless steel and matured in 50% new French oak barrels, 10% American oak barrel and 40% used ones for 12 months. The wine has moderate ripeness and alcohol (14%) in a fresher, subtler and more elegant year with good freshness (a pH of 3.75) and balance. It’s young and creamy, a baby that will improve as it burns down that fat. Separating the press wine by quality and aging it separately seems to have increased the precision. It has to be one of the finest vintages for this wine; it is round and nicely textured. It could be an improved version of the 2016. 151,411 bottles, 1,053 magnums and some larger formats were filled during August 2020.
JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, October 14, 2021
Aromas of blackberries and crushed stones with some black licorice and violets, following through to a medium body with a solid core of fruit and such attractive fruit and fine tannins at the finish. Really attractive now.

Río Madre Rioja Graciano

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 59074

VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2024
The 2021 Graciano Rio Madre, sourced from Alfaro in Rioja Oriental, aged for six months in used French oak barrels. This ripe, black-fruited wine features bay leaf and balsamic notes, complemented by plum marmalade. Dry and juicy, the abundant and taut palate lingers with a lifted flavor, thanks to its heightened acidity. This is a pleasing and sun-kissed expression of Graciano. (Joaquín Hidalgo)
JS9090 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, September 9, 2022
Very dark on the nose, with lots of raw spices, charcoal and some green peppercorns on top of the blackberries. Very full-bodied and spicy. Almost a bit monolithic, despite the fine-grained tannins. Quite a unique style. Drink in 2024.

While the best Spanish wine is subjective to ones taste, one could argue that the Rioja wine region is the most well-known and important.

In Spain wine regions have certain rules and regulations that are similar to those in France or Italy. The Rioja wine region is one of two in Spain with the highest classification of quality assurance called the Denominación de Origen Calificada (D.O.C.) or "Qualified Appellation of Origin".

Red Rioja wine is typically based on the Tempranillo grape with Garnacha (Grenache), Mazuelo and Graziano usually in a supporting role. White Rioja wines are typically made from the native Viura grape although Verdejo and international varieties such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are permitted. The use of oak aging in the Rioja wine region traditionally begins with the use of American oak barrels. The aging process of these wines is indicated on the bottle in several ways:

  • Rioja (formerly "joven"): This is a young wine that sees very little or sometimes no oak aging.
  • Crianza: One year aging in barrel, and additional months aging in bottle.
  • Reserva: Wines see a minimum of one year in barrel and with bottle aging must be three years old before release.
  • Grand Reserva: Wines see a minimum of two years in barrel and three years of bottle aging.
