Bodegas Abanico Hazana Vinas Viejas 2014 RP92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 92
The 2014 Hazana Vinas Viejas is simply one of the greatest values in Rioja that money can buy. A blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano, this collaboration between importer Eric Solomon and the owner and winemaker has produced an absolutely amazing Rioja from 45- to 70-year-old unirrigated, head-pruned vines. Loads of lead pencil shavings, black and red currants, licorice and tobacco leaf all jump from the glass of this dense, ruby/purple wine. Soft tannins, medium to full body and fabulous intensity, make for a sensational Rioja to drink over the next 5-7 years.

James Suckling 95分:
A complex nose of dried strawberries with slate and white-truffle undertones. Hints of Spanish cedar. Full body, juicy tannins and bright acidity that follows through to a long, clean and earthy finish. A great wine that shows structure and complexity. Drink or hold.
93 Wine Spectator:
This red has a firm backbone and a solid texture, with harmonious flavors of plum, blackberry, licorice, cocoa and espresso. Concentrated yet graceful. Drink now through 2026.
92 Wine Advocate:
The 2011 Reserva Selección Especial, from a warmer and drier year compared with the average (as well as the previous harvest), has a similar blend as the regular Muga Reserva; it is 65% Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, and it was fermented in small vats with indigenous yeasts. The different varieties and grapes are fermented and aged separately, the first year in new oak and the second one in used barrels. 2011 is a powerful vintage for this cuvée, which now shows quite marked by toasty aromas. Warm vintages usually need longer in bottle to integrate the oak, but experience shows that it gets absorbed and in fact the evolution of this wine in bottle is very good. Even if the nose recommends to wait, the palate is very balanced, with remarkably ripe tannins for such warm year, which can sometime produce some harsh tannins. Not the case here, where the wine shows good elegance and balance. This is a very reliable cuvée, quite stable across vintages.

92 pts Wine Advocate :
As the 2012 is already sold out, the 2013 Roda is the one in the market, and it has been in bottle since July 2015. 2013 was not an easy vintage, and they had to harvest selectively to come to this blend of Tempranillo with 3% Graciano, which has higher acidity than normal after the usual natural fermentation in oak vats and élevage in barriques. This is a completely different vintage from 2012, as 2013 was a very cold and wet year; the Mediterranean varieties did not achieve enough ripeness, and they couldn't include any Garnacha. The rain was needed after two very dry years, but the ripening of grapes was not homogeneous. It's an atypical year after 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, with fine wines, lots of freshness and vibrant tannins—a truly Atlantic, cool-climate vintage.
Emilio Moro, Emilio Moro 2014
Emilio Moro, Emilio Moro 2014
產區： Ribera del Duero, Spain
品種： 100% Tempranillo (Tinto Fino)
90 Points Wine Spectator - "Black cherry, licorice, espresso and loamy earth flavors mingle in this solid red. Firm tannins and fresh acidity impart structure. Shows lively fruit for balance. Drink now through 2024. "
90 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2014 Emilio Moro was produced with grapes from vineyards ranging between 12 and 25 years old, fermented with yeasts selected from their own vineyards in stainless steel vats, and aged in 50/50 French and American oak barrels (one-third new) for one year. There are some faint toasty notes denoting a very young wine, but in general it's very fruit-driven and quite harmonious. Time in bottle has polished it and given it a sleek texture and nicely integrated oak. Very approachable and ready. "
Emilio Moro, Malleolus 2009
Emilio Moro, Malleolus 2009
產區： Ribera del Duero, Spain
品種： 100% Tempranillo (Tinto Fino)
92 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Malleolus is sourced from 25- to 75-year-old vines aged for 18 months in new French oak. It has a rather predictable nose with that veneer of glossy, vanilla-tinged oak and yet you cannot deny that it is well-defined and maintains good freshness, with the fruit suggesting it will meld together with time. The palate is ripe and voluptuous with sensual black cherries, blueberry and layers of creamy oak on the finish. Although it needs to develop more individuality through its bottle evolution, it is undeniably very well-crafted and will please those who love opulent Ribera del Duero wines"
92 Points International Wine Cellar - "Opaque ruby. Highly nuanced aromas of cherry compote, smoky minerals, vanilla and candied flowers. Offers seductively sweet red and dark fruit and floral pastille flavors, with exotic floral tones and sweet oak in the background. This powerful yet lively wine finishes with excellent thrust and supple tannins."
Finca Villacreces Pruno 2013 RP93
RP93 - Tasting Note
A blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 12 months in French oak, is stunning, simply over-delivering in so many different ways. This wine, which offers up copious quantities, of blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit, licorice, graphite and meaty notes, offers fabulous aromatics, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful, pure texture and a long, heady finish with subtle oak. Whats amazing is the French oak is all two-year-old, super-expensive Darnajou barrels...
Grace's Harvest Reserva Toro 2008 80年老藤Tinta de Toro
來自Grace's Harvest 酒莊的頂級酒款，18個月新木桶陳年(70%法國桶，30%美國桶)， 入瓶後再陳放36個月才推出市場銷售。成熟的黑果漿，奶油，煙熏，飽滿濃郁，同Vega Sicilia 個支Pintia 有得比。
La Rioja Alta "Viña Ardanza" Reserva Rioja 2009 JS96/TA95/WA93/Decanter 91
96 pts James Suckling:
This is a powerful and rich red with black truffle and blueberry character. Sweet tobacco, too. Full body, tannic and flavorful. Yet open and polished. Fantastic finish. Great ageing potential. Drink or hold.
La Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva 2005
La Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva 2007
Tempranillo (90%) and Graciano (10%) from vines over 60 years old in vineyards in Briñas, Labastida and Villalba.
97 points James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, January 2016:
Wonderful purity of fruit with a strawberry, currant and plum character. Full and velvety body with ultra-fine tannins and a delicious fresh and fruity finish. Classic Rioja style. Que lindo! Drink now.
95 points Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate (226), August 2016:
If Viña Ardanza seems to be going fast, the Gran Reserva 904 is even faster and we're now on the 2007 Gran Reserva 904. This wants to be the classic Gran Reserva--polished, silky and elegant, with aging potential. It is a blend of Tempranillo with 10% Mazuelo aged for four years in well-seasoned American oak barrels, with eight manual rackings. I found that the freshness of the vintage and its relatively young age gave the wine a youngish character that I loved, combining developed notes of meat, spices, leather and balsam with almost cherry-like aromas. The palate feels balanced and elegant, with fine-grained and fully resolved tannins and great acidity. This vintage of 904 surprised me! 150,000 bottles produced.
La Rioja Alta is not resting on their laurels, as they are investing nine million Euros in improving their vineyards and winery, including an optical sorting table.
Marques de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial 2001 Guia Peñín 97/WA94
Marques de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial 2001
Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial是Marqués de Murrieta酒莊的旗艦酒款，也是酒莊傳統派釀製的代表作品（其現代派代表作品則是同樣產自於Ygay酒窖的另一酒款Dalmau），它來自於海拔485米，古老的單一園La Plana（這塊土地歷來只用於“特級珍藏”的生產），經過兩年半的美國橡木桶陳年與三年的瓶陳時間。
94 pts Wine Advocate :
I reported on the current release, the 2001 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial, previously but underrated it slightly. This cuvee is sourced from a single plot called La Plana planted at over 1500 feet of elevation. It is made up of 93% Tempranillo and 7% Mazuelo chosen for its acidity. The wine is aged for 10 months in new American oak followed by 21 months in seasoned oak. It is then held in bottle for 3-4 years prior to release. Deeply colored, spicy, elegant and complex, the wine has great volume and grip as well as exceptional length. It can be approached now but will easily have a 30 year lifespan.

Vega Sicilia Alion 2013 WA94/JR17+
西班牙國寶級Vega-Sicilia 加持，飲家必選: Vega Sicilia Alion 2013
Vega Sicilia 買下了15公里外的破產的Bodegas Liceo, 成立Alion, 目標是"Born to make History" 。1991年成為莊主Pablo Alvarez 第三個仔(大仔酒王Unico, 二仔Valbuena, 和96年出世的細仔Pintia)。100% Tempranillo, 來自靚區Ribera del Duero的靚村Valbuena, Pesquera, Padilla, 30年樹齡, 14個月全新法國最出名橡木桶(Radoux/Taranssaud/Saury/Vicard), 出售前入瓶再15個月以上係酒窖陳年。
94 pts Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate (229), February 2017:
The careful selection of the grapes and the work directives even for the purchased grapes has clearly paid off in the 2013 Alión, which has great freshness and perfume. It was cropped from a relatively normal growing season, but with a cold September with some rains that provoked a slight delay in the picking and especially the seed for a severe sorting of the grapes. It's considered a challenging vintage in general, and the bottles produced are slightly less than in the healthier 2012. It's always pure Tempranillo from over 30-year-old vines in different villages: Pesquera, Padilla, Moradillo... It fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts after a three-day cold soak, followed by malolactic and 12-14 months in new French barriques. It might be a lighter vintage for Alión, but one that has a subtler profile and harmony. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, with a thread of acidity going through its core and lifting it up. An elegant Alión. 260,000 bottles and some larger formats were filled in May 2015.
Vina Tondonia Reserva Lopez de Heredia 2004 WA94
Vina Tondonia Reserva Lopez de Heredia 2004
品種： 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and Mazuelo
酒莊成立於1877年， Rioja最古老的三家酒莊之一，這家酒莊至今仍被認為是傳統Rioja的衛士，時至今日，他們仍在以最古老的方式釀酒，一切就像一百多年前的模樣，經典的韻味十足。 酒莊 屬於R. López de Heredia家族，擁有四塊葡萄田（Viña Tondonia， ViñaCubillo， Viña Bosconia和 Viña Zaconia）。其中Tondonia出產的葡萄酒最為出名，也代表了家族醉高品質葡萄酒。根據Rioja產區分級制度: Reserva 級別的紅葡萄酒至少酒窖陳年 3 年，其中在橡木桶中陳釀至少 1 年。這款Tinto Reserva 2004僅在橡木桶中陳年就用了6年時間，遠遠超過了法定陳年的時間。2004年是里奧哈產區非常優秀的年份，這一年出產的葡萄酒有足夠的實力可以經受住長期的橡木桶陳放，從而達到果香和陳年香氣的平衡，表現複雜，圓潤細膩。就連RP都認為其適飲期可以長達到2025年。
94 points Wine Advocate:
The 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a completely different story. It is a worthy follower of the 2001, the greatest of the Viña Tondonia Reservas of recent times. It has the usual blend and usual levels of alcohol and acidity, bottled after six years in oak barrels. The nose feels savory (if that's possible–umami?) and developed, with tertiary aromas and good balance between spices, leathery notes, cherries and balsamic notes of cigar box and incense. The palate is both round and crisp, with refined tannins. It has very good balance with subtle acidity and very good persistence.
