Equipo Navazos 2015 Montilla-Moriles Casa del Inca Pedro Ximénez 750ml

From Equipo Navazos: 'The very thin skin of the Pedro Ximénez variety favors the fast dehydration of the berries during the asoleo (sundrying) process, which makes it ideal for the production of raisiny sweet wines. The Montilla-Moriles region (especially in Montalbán, Montemayor, and Puente Genil) concentrates today virtually all the production of sweet PX musts that will later be aged in the different Andalusian winemaking areas. Casa del Inca, in Montilla, is the former residence of the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, where he wrote most of his literary production. Its present functions—after restoration—are related to the city’s winemaking tradition. Late-harvested grapes, several full turns of exposure to the late summer sun, and careful extraction at different pressure levels by means of powerful hydraulic presses are the key to the musts’ original quality. Another key element is the subsequent fortification with top-quality wine-based spirits. Third and last as far as vintage PXs not undergoing barrel ageing are concerned is time: one and a half years resting in tinajas or conos, the traditional cone-shaped vessels used in Montilla-Moriles for centuries now.'

Equipo Navazos NV San Lucar de Barrameda La Bota de Palo Cortado #41 375 ml

From Equipo Navazos: 'Gaspar Florido used to market two very old wines sourced from their soleras at their old cellaring facility at calle Rubiños, in the heart of the "Barrio" in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. When they decided to seize the real estate fever and sell their urban bodegas they had to move those butts to a shabby facility on the road from Sanlúcar to Trebujena. There is where I had the opportunity to sample them for the first time, on a visit with Álvaro Girón to already old Gaspar in June 2006. We were very positively impressed by their quality and consistency, especially in contrast with the lack of distinction--to put it mildly--of the context there and then. There were quite a few butts of the outstanding GF-25 and only a few of  GF-30, a very old and absolutely spectacular wine. It is precisely from the latter that this La Bota de Palo Cortado nº 41 "Bota NO" is sourced.  Only a few months later, early in 2007, Bodegas Pedro Romero purchased Gaspar Florido, and since then they have remained marketing GF-25 under the usual label "Jerez Viejísimo". In Gaspar's opinion--perhaps questionable but not lacking solid ground--such wines see how the distinctive features of amontillado, palo cortado and oloroso are blurred by their very age. That is why he used to label it simply "Jerez", which after all merely honors the sanluqueña tradition of referring to the local palo cortado as "jerez cortado". It is indeed a very old palo cortado and so we have labeled it as such. Today these butts are stored at the Sacristía of Pedro Romero, back to the heart of the "Barrio" and actually very near their original location. There is where we had the opportunity to revisit them and sample them exhaustively and, ahem, exhaustingly, in order to select our favorites for this edition of   "La Bota": it is a truly extraordinary wine for its unlikely balance between sheer authenticity, concentration, and finesse; genuinely amazing, with so much character and personality.'

Gonzalez Byass NV Jerez Fino Tio Pepe En Rama (btld 2017)

This is the 2017 release of what is perennially one of my favorite sherries, Gonzales Byass's Tio Pepe En Rama. "En Rama" translates to "from the cask", and this is one of the purest expressions of fino sherry, bottled without fining or filtration in the springtime, when the influence of flor (the veil of yeast that protects the wine from oxidization and imparts a very particular flavor) is at its strongest.The 2017 displays beautiful aromas of green apple, lemon peel, white blossom, almonds, that yeasty flor character, a touch of smoke and a briney, olive note. The palate is vibrant and lovely, marrying all the complexity of the nose with a great minerality and salinity. Such a complex and food-friendly wine! One of my favorite pairings with fino sherry is grilled fish, but this would also be lovely with seared scallops, calamari, or monkfish liver. Oskar Kostecki

Gonzalez Byass NV Jerez Una Palma Fino 500ml

All sherries in the Las Palmas Collection begin their lives on track to become Tio Pepe, which averages 4-4.5 years of age. A fascinating variety of flor activity and microclimates throughout Tio Pepe's soleras (totaling approximately 20,000 barrels) creates especially pure and fine expressions that set certain barrels of fino apart. The tradition was to mark these wines with a "palma" and to trace their development over time; two, three, and four palmas designate increasing fineness with age. The 2015 selection of Una Palma was pulled from three barrels of fino in a solera of 142 casks averaging 6 years old. Andrew Sinclair from Gonzalez Byass notes that this is a higher-alcohol style of fino that was typical prior to the 1960s (fermented to 11% alcohol and then fortified to 15.5%). Soft, rIch aromas of flor, beeswax and chamomile, with hints of peppercorn and banana leaves contrast with the bracing freshness of the palate, full of tingly lemon oil, concentrated yellow fruit flesh and tart and bitter golden plum peels.

Hidalgo NV Jerez Oloroso Gobernador

Emilio Hidalgo makes some of the most elegant and refined sherries in Jerez today. I asked him how he achieved such elegance in his wines and he replied that they are fanatical about cleanliness of their barrels and their bodega has a very unique position for the nurturing of the flor. Although there is no flor here, it is not missed. There are delicate aromas of nuts, Assam tea, smoke, and salted caramels. The palate is dry and finely textured finishing amazingly long and pure. Serve before dinner as an apéritif, during dinner with poultry dishes or after dinner as a digestive. This will be on my Thanksgiving table. cb

Valdespino NV Jerez Amontillado Blend Contrabandista

The Valdespino Contrabandista is an approachable Amontillado with overt nutty characteristics softened by just a bit of sweetness.  The wine is deeply perfumed, most distinctly with toasted walnuts,  lovely candied orange, sweet spice, and a touch of caramel.  Medium weight on the palate with a nice balance of sweetness and acidity and a soft, almost creamy texture.  The flavors are again led by notes of toasted nuts but also showing more of a honeyed tone with citrus on the long finish.  This wine would pair easily with a Thanksgiving feast, showing enough power to stand up to turkey and gravy along with enough sweetness to fit with sweet potato casserole or a zesty cranberry sauce. It would also be a perfect partner for cheese or sweets after the meal. Serve slightly chilled and enjoy. Andy Paynter

Made of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Viura from Artuke's organically farmed family estate in the Rioja Alavesa, this wine is a great bargain.

Corisca 2015 Rías Baixas Albariño Ecologico

We are very proud to work with Corisca ("storm" in the local dialect), a certified organic Albariño made by Natalia Rodríguez and her father José María, pioneers in the region (the first in Rías Baixas to be certified organic) who work tirelessly to perfect the balance of this wine - the only one that they make. Corisca displays pure Albariño character and heightened refreshment at an everyday price. Salty, stony aromas with hints of orange oil and green herbs precede the elegant palate, full of twinkling citrus and stone fruit, bright sea spray, minerals, and a long, complex finish. An invigorating apéritif and easy pairing for poultry, fish, and vegetables. We cannot imagine a more delicious "house" Albariño! Ariana Rolich.   

Want a great wine with your fish? Corisca is one of the best wines you can buy to pair with! With great salinity, pretty texture and good acidity, the wine works beautifully with white flesh fish, such as mahi mahi, striped bass or skate, and many seafoods, from crab to scallop. Try it with ceviche and sushi and you will thank me!  Caroline Coursant

Lighter than ever in 2015, a pale rose gold, not quite the color of pale rosé, this is an incredibly versatile sparkler that has crisp, pretty stone fruit and under-ripe raspberry fruit, but is far more mineral-driven than fruity.

Ruben Diaz 2015 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros Fiorella Albillo Real

What a fantastic wine reminiscent of classic, non-fortified Sherry and Jura whites! 100% Albillo Real from 70-year-old vines planted on decomposed granitic sands in Cebreros in the Gredos (with a small quantity coming from older vines), Fiorel-la (a nickname for “little flor”) fermented 5 days on its skins and then aged under flor (the veil of yeast that protects the wine from oxidization) in stainless steel for over 18 months (a portion of Fiorel-la is aged in small soleras for Rubén’s vinos de tonel). The wine displays beautiful and distinct aromas, with a complex bouquet of savory, almond, salt, lemon peel, dill, dry bitter earth and olive notes. The palate is vibrant with great minerality, bright acidity, and salinity, and an amazingly long finish. Serve this wine with fish crudos, tapas and grilled fish. Caroline Coursant

The Albillo was picked first and spent a week on the skins before being pressed, and then aged in a single-use French oak barrel. The Chasselas was then added to the Albillo following five days of skin maceration and the wine was then aged for nine months. With great acidity, beautiful texture, light body and precise minerality, the wine is fantastic. Vibrant with an electric energy, the wine displays a delicious, complex bouquet of almond, herbal, spice, saline and earthy notes with tart tropical and pale stone fruits.

With 10% stem inclusion, the wine is fermented and aged in used French barrels for 9 months. With juicy red berry, crunchy dark cherry and red plum, the wine is luscious with an enjoyable simplicity. A  great example of the Gredos for a great price, this Garnacha wine shows off a precise structure of smooth tannin, good acidity and bright minerality. Enjoy without moderation! Pair this wine with grilled steak, pork tenderloin, roasted lamb or with vegetable lasagna. Caroline Coursant

Ruben Diaz NV Castilla y León Cebreros La Sorpresa Garnacha 500ml

Ruben Diaz is the steward of the ancient tradition in Cebreros of aging red and white wines perpetually in small soleras, tapping them for a few bottles' worth of mature, textured elixirs, called "rancio" or "dorado" wines (some are sweet and some are dry). Diaz has some of the area's oldest examples of these wines and none of them are commercially available, making a tasting from this collection feel akin to a secret museum visit. Thankfully, he has started a number of his own rancio soleras and perpetual cuvees. This one is made from red Garnacha wines from multiple vintages spanning 2006-2013. A sheer, rosy copper hue in the glass, with aromas of hazelnut, orange oil, acetone, and caramel. The senses are bracing for sweetness, but the palate is dry, strong and nuanced, with flavors of dried apricot, raspberry eau de vie, apple skins, sandalwood, dried mediterranean herbs, cacao, and nut skins. An example of Garnacha's supreme versatility! Ariana Rolich

Ruben Diaz NV Castilla y León Cebreros La Sorpresa Saca No. 6 500ml

The Sorpresa is a long-aged Albillo Real, stored in a small solera started in 2004 when Ruben Diaz found a barrel of 100+ year-old Albillo in a cellar in Cebreros. This ancient Albillo is the base wine of the solera, which he refreshes regularly (though not every year) with young Albillo. Some of the barrels develop a thin layer of flor. He bottles sacas of 200 bottles at a time. Saca #6 was bottled in 2014, pulled from a barrel refreshed in 2004 and 2007. A perfect wine for customers interested in Amontillado or Palo Cortado style sherries. But note that, unlike sherry, Ruben's vinos de tonel are not fortified! Ariana Rolich

RuBor Viticultores 2014 Sierra de Gredos Navarrevisca 7 Pulgadas Garnacha

Orly Lumbreras of RuBor is always good for a musical reference! 7 Pulgadas is "seven inches" (as in the vinyl record format), made from a single parcel of Garnacha in Navarrevisca (in the Alto Alberche zone of the Sierra de Gredos), planted on sandy soils of decomposed granite at 1100m altitude. Explosive fragrance of flowers and spice flow onto the powerful palate of ripe raspberry and tart red plum, black cherry and chewy skins. Powdery tannins, mouth-watering Gredos acidity and mineral grip ripple through this wine, which opens up for hours and shines alongside beef, lamb, or a Mexican feast. Ariana Rolich

RuBor Viticultores 2015 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros SADE Albillo Real

Albillo Real is the great white grape of the Sierra de Gredos, a massive mountain range west of Madrid, where Garnacha reigns supreme. Albillo is expressive, earthy and versatile among styles of wine, from crisp whites to orange wines, to historic sweet and rancio styles. The grapes for SADE come from a single vineyard in Cebreros, picked quite ripe and given a 40-day maceration on the skins, resulting in velvety tannin, flavors of musky apricot, papaya, squash, honeycomb, salty cheese rind, and earthy mineral depth. Terrific with a grilled pork chop, roasted chicken, roasted fish with citrus, earthy root vegetables, cheeses or charcuterie. Ariana Rolich

RuBor Viticultores 2015 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros Groove Garnacha

Groove comes from a unique spot in Cebreros, the highest granitic vineyard in the village,  planted on very sandy soils a 900m to 50-year-old Grenache vines with very low yields of small grapes with thick skins, with electric tannin and acid. This wine consistently throws people off, as it is not fruit-driven.  Groove is intense and distinctly mineral- and acid-driven, with flavors of brambly and herbal wild berry fruit, brilliant acidity, and hints of herbs and coriander. Cool and pretty, even in the intense 2015 vintage. Ariana Rolich

Ulibarri Artzaiak 2016 Bizkaiko Txakolina

The Ulibarri family has a long history in the Basque country, primarily as shepherds and cheesemakers (Artzaiak is the Basque word for shepherd). They also have vineyards planted to the traditional grape of the region - Hondarrabi Zuri - and have existed as a bodega since the 18th century. Farming is certified organic (extremely rare for the area – they might be the only ones!) and the sheep play a major role in the vineyards, handling weed control and providing natural fertilizer. In an area where winemakers harvest early and often inject the wines with CO2 to make them a bit fizzy (a characteristic associated with the wines – think Vinho Verde), the Ulibarri brothers harvest at full ripeness, allow indigenous yeast fermentation, and let the wines age on the lees. There is no filtration or stabilization - this is REAL Txakoli! The 2016 is fresh and even has the slightest tickle on the tongue from the natural acidity. A fantastic thirst-quenching white from a magical place! Eben Lillie

Venus La Universal 2016 Montsant Dido Blanco (Macabeu, Garnatxa Blanca, Car

This fantastic white wine is a blend of Macabeu, Garnatxa Blanca, and Cartoixà (Xarello) coming from Sara Pérez and René Barbier Jr.'s home and winery in Montsant -- Venus La Universal. The grapes undergo different macerations: one portion is macerated with skin for 3-5 days in open-top barrels, another is macerated with skin for 24 hours, while the remainder is directly pressed. Raised in a mix of 300 and 600 liter barrels and locally made clay amphorae, this 2016 Dido Blanco displays flavors of pear, lime zest, pineapple core, and slight herb, bright acidity, and beautiful chalky minerality. The finish is long and beautifully complex. A perfect white wine to pair with roasted chicken, and earthy vegetable soups. Caroline Coursant

Vina Mein 2014 Ribeiro Tinto Atlantico Elaborado Por Comando G

This is a very special wine made under the guidance of the highly prestigious Comando G (only 1,300 bottles are produced each year). The grapes, a blend of Caíño, Brancellao, and Souson (about 20-year old vines) planted on granite soils in the D.O. of Ribeiro, are fermented with native yeast and aged for 10 months in old barrels with no filtering or fining. Dark berries, purple and rose florals, Moroccan spice, wild earth and hibiscus notes are prevalent on the nose, while a superb minerality and bright acidity shows off on the palate. The resulting wine is fresh and vibrant with plenty of tension and energy. Pair this wine with dishes such as grilled octopus and chorizo and blackened fish tacos, vegetable lasagna, and manchego cheese.  Caroline Coursant
