From the certified organic vineyards of Celler Aixala-Alcait in Torroja del Priorat, Destrankis is a delicious, expressive Priorat for a very affordable price. Rich aromas of sappy berries, chewy dried fruits, wild herbs, and warm slate. The ripeness and power of the 2015 vintage is balanced on the full-flavored palate of licorice, black plums, wild herbs, and bitter earth with fresh acidity and grippy tannins. A divine pairing for meat or stews, at an everyday price. Ariana Rolich

100% Garnacha Blanca from certified organic vineyards in Torroja del Priorat, picked early and vinified in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness.

Alvar de Dios Hernandez 2015 Toro Aciano Tinto

Aciano is made from winemaker Alvar de Dios' grandfather's own-rooted vineyard of Tinta de Toro planted nearly 100 years ago on pure sandy soils at 700 meters altitude in El Pego, on the southern limit of the Toro DO. Deep brambly aromas with black raspberry, black cherry, baking spice, and balsam flow onto the broad, but focused palate, rich with intense dark fruit, cherry bark, plum vinegar, blood orange, cinnamon, cocoa, rich earth, and long, lilting minerality. Toro is well-represented by the talented Alvar de Dios, particularly in this balanced and special wine. Ariana Rolich

Artuke 2016 Rioja Red

An utterly delicious bargain, made of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Viura from Artuke's organically farmed family estate in the Rioja Alavesa. Made in the traditional, refreshing (pre-barrel aging) style of Rioja, whole cluster fermented and raised in concrete tanks for a pure, juicy, floral, and thirst-quenching young red that begs to be chilled and downed over lunch (or on the couch). Alluring wild rose and ripe cherry aromas and flavors, with crushed red and purple berries, soft earth, wild green herbs, salty licorice, and cherry cola. Keep a bottle chilling in the fridge to pair with everything from pizza to paellas! Ariana Rolich

Bernabeleva 2015 Sierra de Gredos San Martin de Valdeiglesias Viña Bonita

Viña Bonita is an aptly-named Garnacha from an 80+ year-old hilltop vineyard planted on granite in San Martin de Valdeiglesias. A swirl of heady aromas -- cherry blossoms, sweet berries, and rose -- primes the palate for supple and juicy flavors of sappy strawberry, ripe raspberry and  bitter cranberry fruit, flecked with resinous Mediterranean herbs, precise minerality, lift, and length. Marc Isart of Bernabeleva was a founding member of Comando G, along with Dani Landi and Fernando García, and shares their talent for sustaining freshness, even in difficult, dry years like 2015. For fans of Bernabeleva's Camino de Navaherreros, Viña Bonita is a special treat! Ariana Rolich

Fresh and fragrant, luscious and lively, Bernabeleva is back! Pure Garnacha from the granitic sandy soils of San Martin de Valdeiglesias in the Sierra de Gredos, where old vines and high altitudes conspire for some of the world's best Grenache wines. Spicy and floral berry aromas give way to a tart, pretty palate of crisp cranberry, spicy raspberry, ripe tomato, with the Gredos' trademark minerality, bright acid, and a tickle of young tannins.

Casa Aurora (Germán Blanco) 2015 Albares Vino de Parcela Valle del Rio

Valle del Rio is emblematic of the focus and depth of the Casa Aurora project, where idiosyncratic swatches of land, planted to previously unimaginable mixtures of vines, are translated into utterly singular sensory combinations that excite intellectual pleasures as well as hedonistic ones. In winegrower Germán Blanco's words: "From little things, big things grow. If I blend these special things into each other, you can't taste it. And you may not like it... but it's special!" Well, Germán, we like it a lot! Valle del Rio is a .58 hectare parcel of 40-100 year old vines at 820 meters altitude, composed of approximately 60% Garnacha Tintorera, 10% Garnacha, 10% Mencía, and 17% Palomino and the rest Godello, planted on a south-facing slope of red clay and decomposed granite. 2015 is marked by mouth-watering, forward purple berries and violet florals, in balance with the typically dominant notes of crunchy blackberries, damp clay, rocks, and ink.

Castellroig NV Penedès Cava Brut

Castellroig is one of the finest values in Cava, farmed organically, harvesting by hand, and even fermented with native yeasts. Marcel Sabate and his team have a remarkable understanding of their vineyards and have mapped out every minute shift in terroir on their estate; this fanatical approach to quality shows in the bottle. The focus of this cuvée is Xarlel-lo, a favorite amongst Cava grapes for its refreshing mineral qualities and notes of mountain herbs. A light-on-its-feet bubbly for everyday occasions.

Colet Navazos 2012 Penedès Extra Brut Reserva

There is no Champagne method sparkler like this one, a collaboration between Sergi Colet in Penedes and Equipo Navazos, the Andalusian dream team behind La Bota. The base wine is Chardonnay from Penedes and the dosage is manzanilla pasada from Sanlucar de Barrameda; this combination is fascinating, with flor aromas from the manzanilla accenting the earthy bass notes of the wine. Long aging on the lees before disgorgement (40+months) and a process called autolysis create umami and yeasty bread notes in Champagne method sparklers that are found in fino sherries and manzanillas with age as well. Umami, salt, citrus, and long, briny, mineral profile make this a serious sparkler to build a seafood or poultry course around. Ariana Rolich

Comando G 2015 Sierra de Gredos Rozas de Puerto Real Rozas 1er Garnacha

The Rozas Primer bottling always speaks to me. Perhaps it's the merciful price point, relative to Comando G's miniscule-production top cuvées. More likely, it is the beautiful old Garnacha vineyards of Rozas de Puerto Real themselves, which are planted on decomposed granite at 900m in the Tietar Valley, meticulously farmed by Comando G,  and gently vinified into a reliably fluid and delicious Garnacha. Spicy wild rose aroma, floral black cherry, forest fruits and flora, with cool vegetal undertones and a long, savory and complex finish. 2015 was a challenging year for the top producers of Gredos, who aim for lower alcohol and elegant build. Comando G managed it admirably, producing wines of length and depth, with ripe but lifted fruit. Ariana Rolich

Comando G 2015 Sierra de Gredos Villanueva de Avila Tumba del Rey Moro

Everything about Tumba del Rey Moro vineyard is vertigo-inducing: the treacherous access, the steep 1/2 hectare scrap of rocky granitic mountainside, and the wild, dizzying beauty of the wine itself. 65-year-old vines of Garnacha cling to this site at 1100m in Villanueva de Avila in the Alto Alberche Valley, an area with continental climate, where Garnacha enjoys a long growing season and a very special expression.  Tumba del Rey Moro has subtle aromas of sweet, delicate florals, exotic spice, mountain scrub, and soil, with a long, brisk, sapid palate, laced with shimmering wild berry and ripe wild strawberry fruit, flower petals and mountain air and earth, savory minerals, and with a fine-grained tannin. The length of this wine is inspiring for Grenache lovers and skeptics alike and critical acclaim has been heaped upon Comando G. There is mystery here that must be experienced, a feeling that the raw power and  soul of the rocky wilderness has been deftly conjured into a most unlikely and ethereal wine. Ariana Rolich

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

Daniel Ramos 2012 Sierra de Gredos Kapi Albillo Real

Kapi is Albillo Real from San Martin de Valdeiglesias, the historic source for the best white grapes in the Sierra de Gredos, fermented in amphora with 8 months of maceration on the skins. Exotic and exuberant, textured and savory but bright, with white flowers, fresh pear, subtle tropical fruit (papaya, guava) and fresh minerality. Vigneron Daniel Ramos reports that there was an active layer of flor  on the surface of the wine for approximately four months, which amps up the wine's salinity and savory layers. Gorgeous wine!

Dominio del Urogallo 2015 Asturias 'La Fanfarria' Blanco NO SO2

Nicolas Marcos comes from a winemaking family in Toro but found himself drawn to the polar opposite, cool, northern coastal region of Cangas in Asturias, where very old vines of Mencía and autochthonous varieties like Carrasquín, Albarín Blanco, Verdejo Tinto, and more cling to steep, rocky slopes of slate and quartz. Farming is biodynamic, winemaking is additive-free, and the wines are  pretty darn exciting, with brilliant freshness and depth. Fanfarria Blanco is a blend of Albarín (different from Albariño) and Albillo (not sure which Albillo this is, but we'll find out!), full of green apple and silky citrus, with white flowers, potent minerality, and a creamy, waxen quality that could inspire Chenin lovers to drink Spanish wine.

The Espelt family has been growing grapes for centuries on the sandy granite, limestone, and slate soils of Empordà. In the early 2000s, they began bottling under their own name, resulting in some of the best values coming out of Catalonia. Espelt's vineyards are certified organic and dedicated primarily to native varieties like Lledoner (Catalan Grenache) and Carinyena. This wine is 100% Garnatxa Blanca from 50 year-old vines, fermented and aged for 3 months in neutral French oak barrels. Medium bodied, with pure, fluid flavors of white peach, lemon-lime, tropical fruit, and golden apple, flecked with white pepper and silky  florals, anchored by a  firm mineral spine.

Ester Nin and Carles Ortiz combine rigorous biodynamic farming, prime terroir in Porrera (one of the two coolest villages in the Priorat), and an oddity - Cargnan Blanc - to achieve this elegant outlier among Priorat whites. Unusually lithe, clear, and cool-tempered relative to the big, sometimes boozy whites of the region, with heady aromas of wild herbs, lemon balm, mustard flower, citrus peels, and white pepper. The palate is supple, long, and mineral, one of the most restrained and pretty Priorat whites around, displaying delicate tropical and tree fruits with bitter piths, mineral earth, and sea salts. Pair with rich seafood and herbed poultry. Ariana Rolich

Home to one of the great, deep cellars of Cava county, Gramona does not release wines until they are perfectly mature and ready to drink Silken aromas of golden fruit, hazelnut, orange oil, and fresh yeasty bread. Although totally dry with no dosage, III Lustros displays a ripe palate of tangy ginger, jasmine, almond oil, orange water, and ripe fruit notes of pretty yellow plum and crisp golden apple, with added breadth, complexity, and autolytic elements due to 5 years of lees aging. Elegant and gastronomic, this is an ideal sparkling match for welcome appetizers and root vegetable gratins or soups. Ariana Rolich

Ignios Orígenes 2015 Tenerife Ycoden Daute Isora Baboso Negro 1.5 L

Baboso Negro (better known as Alfrocheiro in Portugal) has a powerful and flamboyant personality, making every vintage of this wine is a new adventure. Ignios Baboso comes from a 20-year-old single vineyard on volcanic clay loam in northwestern Tenerife, converted to organic farming by intrepid Tenerife vigneron, Borja Pérez González. The 2015 is very fresh and balanced, displaying Baboso's distinctive perfume and acidity, along with a full, beguiling palate of sweet wild cherry, brambly black raspberry, blackberry sap, and musky blood orange, lifted by notes of apricot, citrus peels, celery seed, and grounded by clear minerality and pungent volcanic earth.

This wine evolves wonderfully with air as well as age in bottle. Decanting recommended. Ariana Rolich

Ignios Orígenes 2015 Tenerife Ycoden Daute Isora Marmajuelo 1.5 L

As the sun goes down and the fogs roll over Tenerife, there is no better pleasure than to sip a glass of Ignios Marmajuelo alongside local shell fish and fresh mojo (Canarian pesto made of herbs, garlic, and plenty of vinegar - email us for recipes!). Marmajuelo plantings are rare. In 2011, Borja Perez Gonzalez recuperated two tiny 20-year-old parcels, perched above the Ignios Baboso vineyard, amounting to a mere 700kg of grapes. The wine is equally unusual, combining forceful salty and savory volcanic island elements - ocean air and smoky soil - interwoven with juicy (dry!) tropical fruits, accented by mellow notes of banana leaf, lemon balm, green almond, and aloe, with long, ashen mineral notes on the finish. The complex braid of flavors is lifted by invigorating acidity. This Marmajuelo displays significant natural tannin and viscosity, endearing it to adventurous cooks in search of special white wine pairings. Ariana Rolich

Aromas of rose, orange honey, grapefruit, and cherry blossom accent flavors of black cherry, tart raspberry, orange peel, salty brine, watermelon rind, black tea, and bitter sandy earth, with buoyant acid, moderate tannins, and pleasing length. A brilliant introduction to the complex Ignios reds, delicious paired with lamb burgers, confit, and spicy fare. Ariana Rolich

Julia Bernet 2014 Penedès Cava "U" Brut Nature

A friend brought back a bottle of Júlia Bernet Cava from Barcelona 7 or 8 years ago. I still remember the integrity and succulent depth of that wine. After several attempts, I finally managed to visit Xavi Bernet three years ago and have since made his bodega in the tiny hamlet of El Pago a regular stop (where he also sells delicious Catalan cheese, fruits, and rancio). Xavi farms his grandparents' vines and makes a array of delicious, certified organic still wines and Cava, all of which display enormous quality and care. "U" is a new cuvée, bone dry, elegant, and refreshing, from 15-40 year-old Xarello vines. The Cava spends approximately two years on the lees, receiving no dosage and the bare minimum SO2. If Penedès were the object of such intense scrutiny and admiration as Champagne, there is no doubt that Xavi Bernet would be hailed as a grower of top talent and character. Ariana Rolich

Fredi is known for finessing elegant wines out of big, bodacious varieties like Carignan and Grenache, and Trepat is used to make ethereal, pale and herbal reds and rosés, so we knew his Trepat project in the Conca de Barberà (southern Catalonia, Spain) would be a hit.

Think of Thai- or Vietnamese-inspired meals with seafood or fish, sushi, blackened salmon, or seared tuna. Light and bright with great energy and nice acidity, the wine will enhance your meal without overwhelming it. A fantastic option for people who don't want to drink a white wine with their fish!

A pleasure and a rarity from sparkling wine master Loxarel: 100% Garnatxa Blanca from organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards at 700m altitude in the Alt Penedes. Loxarel's commitment to revealing and heightening the expressions of local varieties is on full display in this zesty, refined, vintage-dated sparkler, with 15 months on the lees, green apple and stone fruit aromas and a complex, Mediterranean palate of tangy lemon, spicy apricots, resinous green herbs, almond blossom and lavender, with a hint of sweet smoke, olive oil, and brine on the finish. A fine bead makes for a perfect paring anywhere you would reach for a still white wine; we recently found this delightful at lunch with egg tortilla and dark leafy greens, also a refreshing foil to fish and chips or simple seared scallops.Ariana Rolich

Maldivinas 2013 Castilla y Leon Sierra de Gredos La Movida Laderas

La Movida Laderas is a steep plot of 70-year-old Garnacha vines planted on rocky schist soils, 958 meters above sea level on the mystical south-facing slopes of Cebreros in the Gredos Mountains. Too precariously steep, rocky, and jagged to be plowed either by animals or machines, the vineyard is fragrant and wild, full of fennel, lavender, clover, poppies, and roses, with rows of quartz rocks ringing the vines, crickets chirping, and vultures soaring in wide circles in the sky above. With miniscule yields of .5kg of fruit per vine, it takes two plants to produce one bottle of wine. Aromas erupt from the glass: lavender, resin, black cherry, spicy cranberry, and crumbly warm earth. Intense Garnacha fruit fills the palate with crushed red raspberries, red currant, and crisp cranberry, with tingly young tannins, exotic sandalwood, and dense, dark schistous minerality. The intensity of these flavors is balanced by sizzling, high acidity that characterizes red wines from the Gredos Mountains . This is a beautiful and rare wine, pulsating with the raw wild force of the mountains. 1000 bottles produced. Ariana Rolich

Maldivinas 2015 Castilla y Leon Sierra de Gredos Combate Pink

I heartily recommend drinking more deeply pigmented rosés throughout winter (especially at holiday feasts). This is an addictive, fuschia-hued, slightly off-dry rosado of Garnacha from Maldivinas' prime vineyards in Cebreros, the heart of the Sierra de Gredos. Two-thirds of the fruit comes from vineyards on schist and one-third from granitic soils. The perfumed nose of hibiscus, wild flowers, and damp brown earth continues onto the wild, juicy palate of strawberry preserves, raspberry patch, and black tea. Lots of bright, tangy acidity is present to balance the rich, wild fruit and the touch of sugar that remains in the wine. An explosively delicious rosé for sipping and an inspired pairing for any cured or smoked pork products, dark poultry (like turkey or duck), Asian fare, cheeses, and fruity or chocolatey desserts. One barrel produced. Ariana Rolich

Mas Candí 2012 Segunyola Cava Brut Nature

Segunyola's flinty, creamy aromas recall Champagne, but Segunyola is 100% Xarello from 60 year-old vines in the Parc Natural del Garraf in Penedes, the heart of Cava country. Grape growers until 2006, Ramón Jané, his wife Mercé Cuscó, and his best friend Toni Carbó decided to make their own wine. Excellent farming  and restraint in the cellar drive the balance and energy in their wines. Segunyola has delicate bubbles, no dosage, and radiates the precision and power that we find in the best Xarello wines. Bone dry, with delicate build and intense length, savory minerals, marzipan, and white fruit and flowers, this is a perfect aperitif or pair for buttery baked goods and nutty cheese. Ariana Rolich

Orly Lumbreras 2015 Sierra de Gredos Navaredondill Punto G Garnacha

Orly Lumbreras is doing some terrific work in the Alto Alberche zone of Gredos in Ávila province, an area with powers that are difficult to describe, but are acutely felt in the place and the wines. In Orly's own words: "Be aware with the Ávila side, for me it is much more untamed and with a wild temper. You ask me what this area has that is so special. I would say it has it all. To start, this breed of grape, Grenache, is unique, sensual, tremendously attractive, suggestive and very, very stylish. The area has magic, soul, passion, much to discover, strolling around you feel magnetism under your feet… I could be talking nonstop about everything you can find here, an emotion that is better to be felt and experienced rather than talked about." (Full interview available on www.miamigoelvino.com.) Punto G is pure mountain Garnacha from the village of Navarredondilla, upwards of 1100m, with bombastic red and purple fruit, and potent enough acidity to balance the intense ripeness of the 2015 vintage.

Raventós I Blanc 2015 Conca del Riu Anoia de Nit Reserva Rosé

Raventós stepped outside of the Cava appellation in 2012 to create the Conca del Riu Anoia designation, which is committed to prioritizing the area's indigenous varieties, estate fruit, longer elevage, and biodynamic methods. The de Nit rosé was the first Conca wine and continues to sate and impress us with its lively expression of Raventós' calcareous soils, rich with marine fossils. 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 2014 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros Cuesta del Tejar Garnacha

Cuesta del Tejar is 100% Garnacha from schistous slopes at 950m altitude in the town of Cebreros, the heart of the Sierra de Gredos, and home to a fascinating variety of terroirs and a corresponding bounty of delicious wines. Aromas of wet, warm stone, earthy licorice, and cassis, with flavors of fresh, ripe blackberries, orange oil, sandalwood, supple, starchy tannins, and bright acidity. Well worth cellaring, but also delicious in its youth, pulsating with the primal energy of the Gredos' wild earth, sun, and air. Bravo to our friend Rubén Díaz, the undisputed master of Cebreros!

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

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 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 2014 Castilla y León Groove Garnacha 1.5 L

Magnums of 2014 Groove! What could be finer? Orly Lumbreras of RuBor described Groove as "un cañón" in its youth. With a little bit of time in bottle, it has mellowed into a laser beam! This is singular Garnacha, utterly fabulous, from a single vineyard that inspired the RuBor partnership. 50-year-old vines with southeast exposition on very fine granitic sandy soils at 900 meters altitude (the highest granitic vineyard in Cebreros, a village known for old-vine Garnacha on high, schistous slopes). High-toned with intense, almost vertical acidity, taut black cherry, herbal black raspberry and purple berry fruit, chewy dark cherry skins, rhubarb, pink peppercorn, lots of violet, lavender, and rose florals, hints of thyme, and a taut, long, granitic mineral force. A wine to observe and celebrate over many years. Ariana Rolich

RuBor Viticultores 2014 Castilla y León Protocolo Zero Blanco

A delicious introduction to orange wine and Rubor Viticultores, made of 100% Albillo Real, the great white grape of the mighty Gredos Mountains, west of Madrid. Rubén and Orly explore a wide range of expressions between their two old-vine Albillo parcels planted on granitic soils - La Peguera and SADE - through strategic harvest dates, skin contact, and vinification style. Protocolo Zero allows them to marry the fresh, youthful, and bright wines with rich, spicy, and aromatic ones, in proportions of their choosing. This succulent white explodes with exciting granitic texture and length, with flavors of musky peaches, Bosc pear, butterscotch, chamomile, and a hint of fresh ginger. Pair with roasted poultry, seafood, pâtés and cheeses. Seriously delicious on its own as well, for lovers of white wines with a little skin contact! 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

RuBor Viticultores 2016 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros Chass! Chasselas

A fresh and pretty entrée into the world of RuBor Viticultores, our good friends Rubén Díaz and Orly Lumbreras, this is 100% Chasselas from two small plots of 70+ year-old vines on decomposed granite soils in Cebreros, the heart of the Sierra de Gredos. With 5-6 days of skin contact, then raised entirely in stainless steel with occasional batonnage, this is a new experience of Chasselas. Dry and minerally, textured and complex, with subtle flavors of crisp apple and pear, dewy green melon, orange pith, beeswax, and sea salt, with a tickle of tannin from time on the skins. An irresistible choice for adventurous apéritifs, poultry, and seafood! Ariana Rolich

Terroir Al Límit 2014 Priorat Dits del Terra

2014 is an incredible vintage of Dits del Terra, a south-facing, single vineyard of 90+ year-old Carignan vines, one of the first plots Dominik Huber and Eben Sadie pinpointed when starting Terroir al Limit. This bottling is always a highlight of Dominik Huber's lineup. Structured and serious, layered and spicy, with crunchy black berry fruit, exotic herbs, and loads of gritty mineral earth, fermented with whole clusters and aged in  large 3500L Stockinger foudre. Every year I take note of how Dits del Terra gets better and more interesting every year. Obviously, it is a perennial favorite! Ariana Rolich

Terroir Al Límit 2015 Priorat Vinum Verum Roc d'Aubaga Rose

As with most serious rosés, Roc d'Aubaga is really coming into its own with some time to evolve in the bottle. Dominik Huber of Terroir al Limit continues to defy expectations with bold, unique, yet relatively light wines from the sun-baked Priorat, famous for dense and powerful reds. Roc d'Aubaga is a whole cluster co-fermentation of  Grenache Noir, Grenache Gris, and Grenache Blanc, with aromas of red currant, wild rose, and hibiscus, flowing onto the subtle yet exuberant palate of wild cherry and creamy berries, with watermelon pith, cherry pits, rose hips, tea leaf, chiseled minerality, fresh acid, and lots of length. Technically a clarete (blend of red and white grapes), this is a beautiful all-season rose, shining with richer duck dishes as well as grilled fish or flavorful raw dishes. Ariana Rolich

Vinatupadre 2012 Castilla y León "El Maton"

Rufete is the fascinating red grape of Salamanca, found throughout the Duero/Douro basin in Spain and Portugal. Often blended with meatier grapes, its delicate, floral, essence is easy to obscure; it is highly expressive of terroir, however, and enjoying a surge of interest from winemakers who want to vinify Rufete on its own. Daniel Ramos is our go-to authority on the Sierra de Gredos, a true master of Grenache. When he mentioned that he made this 100% Rufete from a single vineyard of very old vines on decomposed granite sands at 890m altitude in Salamanca, I had to check it out! After several hours' drive west from Gredos toward the Portuguese border, we reached Sierra de Salamanca. Alternating between pastoral verdant terraces of decomposed granite sands and severe, swirling valleys of schist, with vines poking out of sheer rocky cliffs, this was yet another varied viticultural treasure of Castilla y Leon! El Maton is a graceful medium-bodied choice for Thanksgiving. Enticing aromas of spicy florals, ripe wild cherries, and berry skin funk are followed by deep flavors with racy but delicate acidity: red plum, raspberry, cranberry, clove, violet florals, savory umami, and bitter, salty earth. Now 5 years old, this wine is really starting to shine! Ariana Rolich
