Spain boasts some of the world's finest wines, from bold, stunning Tempranillos to Garnachas full of intense dark fruit. With the thousands of wines available from Spain, we decided to identify a selection of the very best. We sought the help of an experienced taster as a guide as we explored the world of premium Spanish wines (someone had to do it!) and finally arrived at this delicious collection.

Our goal is to offer a tour of memorable wines from a variety of regions and vintages so that you and your friends can experience the very best of the Spanish tradition. Our family gathered several times to taste and enjoy dozens of wines, and we agreed that these six are a vibrant representation of Spain's finest. So uncork a bottle or two, we guarantee you will discover some exceptional wines!

Each sampler comes with tasting notes and a chrome shell wine stopper.

The following wines are included in this wine sampler:

VINA ALBINA GRAN RESERVA 1998
Composition: Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Graciano

As one of Spain’s oldest and most famous bodegas, you can rely on Bodegas Riojanas to make absolutely stunning wines.  To Riojanas, preserving the rich tradition of their winery is of top priority. Vina Albina was the very first label from one of Rioja's few remaining centenarian producers. As such, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more traditional representation of 'old-world' Rioja. This special “library release” of the fantastic 1998 vintage of Viña Albina Gran Reserva shows classic notes of cherry fruit, tobacco, leather and spice.  Amazing now, yet this collectors’ item will age for another 20 or 30 years!

MONTE REAL GRAN RESERVA 1998
Composition: Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Graciano

Perhaps today's most recognized label from Bodegas Riojanas, Monte Real is made with grapes from the winery's "home vineyards" in Cenicero, thus offering the palate a true sense-of-place. This special “library release” of the fantastic 1998 vintage of Monte Real Gran Reserva is bursting with notes of raspberry and rosemary with hint of autumn leaves.  Beautiful now, this collectors’ wine easily will age for another 20 or 30 years!

ESCUDO DE PLATA GRAN RESERVA 2008
Composition: Monastrell

The Fernandez family has been making wine in southeast Spain for nearly 100 years.  If you’re looking for the perfect winter wine, look no further than this very rare Gran Reserva which is seldom exported to the US!  Rich notes of plum and blueberry are framed by notes of molasses, baking spices and chocolate.  Perfect for winter comfort foods, this is one of the great bargains in premium Spanish wines!

LDP CEPAS VIEJAS 2008
Composition: Tempranillo

The Meruelo family exemplifies the heart of Rioja.  If you’re looking for wines with heart and soul, look no further.  This 6 year old Spanish red exemplifies the passion of Rioja – cherry fruit, spice, fennel, tobacco and hints of Spanish earth, this is the essence of Spain.  Pour this next to some Spanish ham, a pork roast or a leg of lamb and you will be transported to Rioja, Spain!

GALLICANT 2005
Composition: Garnacha, Syrah, Carignan

What a rare treat!!  We seldom see beautiful, aged Montsant wines in the US.  The Gallicant is drinking amazingly now.  Full of rich red fruits, chocolate notes, and warm baking spices, this powerful but lovely wine is the ultimate “comfort wine.”  Put something in the slow cooker and pop a bottle on the next snowy day and your world will seem a little warmer!

VA WHITE RESERVA 2001
Composition: Viura, Malvasia

This 14 year old white wine is one of the most interesting Spanish wines we’ve tasted in a long while!  Made in an ulta-traditional style with sherry notes, gobs of marzipan and honey, and just a hint of sweetness, have this with cheese, nuts,spicy foods and rich fish dishes.  It’s so delicious, you may just want to drink this on its own before or after dinner.

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.
