The following wines are included in this sampler:
LAR DE PAULA RIOJA RESERVA
Rioja may very well be Spain’s best loved red wine. What could be better than a Rioja? Perhaps a Rioja Reserva which must be aged in bottle and barrel for a minimum of 3 years before being released for sale. This extra time in the pristine and perfect cellars of Lar de Paula winery results in a wine with rich cherry and plum fruit notes, and a certain elegance and complexity that only comes with time. This is a higher level of Rioja!
SIOS LES CREUS
Composition: Tempranillo, Garnacha
Bodegas Costers del Sio is almost too good to be true. This stunning working farm on the banks of the Sio River west of Barcelona is a modern day paradise with its olive trees, vineyards, pigs, goats, and stunning scenery. Happy grapes make amazing wine, as exemplified by this Tempranillo-Grenache blend. “Les Creus”, named for the cross shaped single-vineyard from which the fruit originates, shows rich cherry and strawberry notes, complemented by hints of wild herbs and a toasty oak finish. This is perfect for leg of lamb, steak, rich stews, and hearty pasta dishes.
ABADIA DE ACON RESERVA
Composition: Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon
For three generations, the Carrasco family has been making some of the best wines in Ribera del Duero, one of Spain’s most famous wine regions. Now, for the first time, these powerful but elegant wines are available in the United States! Made from Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, this stunning Reserva shows notes of blackberry fruit, licorice, fennel and cocoa and makes the perfect gift for the connoisseur of fine Spanish wines! Better still, treat yourself to this very limited and hard to find wine!
LAR DE PAULA WHITE RIOJA
Composition: Viura, Malvasia
In times long ago, the traditional Spanish bodegas made white wines in a style richer and more exotic than what we expect today. Here is a modern-day interpretation of that classic Spanish white wine. Rich and textured, with notes of apple, pear, and almonds, drink this amazing wine with your favorite roast chicken, winter soups, or roast pork dishes. This could be your new "winter white!"
SIGNAT BRUT NATURE CAVA
Composition: Xarel-lo, Macabeo, Parellada
Why not live as Europeans do and drink more sparkling wine! Not just for New Year's or special occasions, we all should live the good life by popping more sparkling wines. This complex and flavorful sparkler just puts everyone in a festive mood. Grab this by the case and elevate any dinner party, holiday gathering, or impromptu occasion with a glass of amazing sparking wine!
Composition: Tinta de Toro
Guillermo ("William") Rodriguez makes this, his signature wine, for the most noble of inspirations, his mother. Sourced from her family's hundred year old vineyards, Guillermo's intent each vintage is to make this wine in the style his mother, Carmen, finds most pleasant. To those of us who have had the pleasure of spending time with Carmen, the resulting wine, a vivacious, bold, and slightly spicy red with character in spades almost seems an appropriate representation of the woman herself.
NOTE: Orders containing wine require an adult signature upon delivery. There is an adult signature charge for any order containing wine of approximately $4.90.
