Spanish Wine Flash Sale! More Than 40 Bottles at Special Pricing!
September 4, 2018
A Note from Sergio

Italy is my first love, but I keep returning to Spain. Winemaking in Spain today reminds me of Italy ten of fifteen years ago, vis-à-vis the American market. Both regions hold winemaking treasures, hundreds of indigenous varieties, and the shiny rediscovery of overlooked regions. Italian wine-lovers who are looking to expand their palate (and their cellars) into new, exciting territory should look to Spain, whose wines complement the traditional/modern tensions you find in Italy, whose array of native grapes is like Italy's, and whose sheer numbers of outstanding producers reminds me of Italy's wealth of great winemakers.

Today, I'm delighted to bring you a flash sale on Spanish wine, with more than 40 bottles of Spanish wine, and there's truly something for everyone. Just as collectible wine begins with Barolo, Brunello and Super Tuscans in Italy, it starts with Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Priorat in Spain--and you'll find all three of these Spanish wine regions in today's flash sale list. Likewise, you'll find both red and white Spanish wines, both new releases and hard-to-find vintage jewels, and wines to serve with your meal--or after it.

Cheers to exploration and cheers to finding new wines to love--I can't wait to hear about the treasures you uncover in today's Spanish Wine Flash Sale!

Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 5º 2009 750ml
Vega Sicilia Ribera del Duero Valbuena 5º 2009 750ml
Price: $164.95

Smoke, crushed gravel, exotic spices, and incense swirl around the succulent red and black fruits in this ’09 Valbuena. The child of a warm vintage, this is a ripe wine with a velvety texture and polished, fine-grained tannins; however, being from Vega-Sicilia, this wine nonetheless has serious structure that will allow for a decade of delicious drinking. Crafted from younger vines, the ’09 Valbuena, mostly Tempranillo kissed with 5% Merlot, enjoyed fermentation in oak tanks, and then about two years of maturation in a combination of barrique, oak barrels and vats before bottling. more info
Vega-Sicilia Ribera del Duero Unico 2005 750ml
Vega-Sicilia Ribera del Duero Unico 2005 750ml
Price: $399.00

Earthy, savory notes of underbrush, black truffles, tea leaves and cigar wrapper coddle the sweet, brambly fruits in this ’05 Único; it’s a wine that bewitches with its opulence and its opposites. Citrus zest and crushed river rocks energize the palate of this caressing wine, and a sweet inner perfume complements its savory underpinnings, while chewy, fine-grained tannins coat the palate. This is an approachable bottle of Único, but it will drink beautifully over the medium term. A blend of 94% Tempranillo with 6% Cabernet Sauvignon in 2005, Único is the product of very low yields and old vines--some more than 100 years. Vega-Siclia releases its Único with about ten years of maturation in the estate's cellars; the wine typically spends seven years aging in large, new and old oak casks, with three years in bottle before release. The estate crafted about 6,000 cases of its genial, welcoming ’05 Único. more info
Perez Barquero Solera Fundacional Amontillado 1905 700ml
Perez Barquero Solera Fundacional Amontillado 1905 700ml
Price: $499.00

Pérez Barquero 1905 Solera Fundacional Amontillado gets its name from the oldest vintage contained in this non-vintage solera method wine; it’s a rich tapestry of flavor profiles and silky texture, at once energetic and mellow. This sherry explodes with raisined and juicy fruit, saline minerals, Christmas cake, toasted nuts, marmalade and ginger, and this kaleidoscope of flavor notes continues on the concentrated, rich palate. Deeply viscous, dry, and powerful, this wine unfolds in mind-bending layers, wrapping its fruit around a serious core of minerals to create a dizzying drinking experience. Crafted entirely of Pedro Ximénez in the solera method, this wine ages in American oak for decades before bottling. The solera method blends across multiple vintages, and the average age of the wines in this sherry is about eighty years old, which allows for unbelievable complexity and nuance. more info
Marques de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva Especial 1986 750ml
Marques de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva Especial 1986 750ml
Price: $729.00

A contender for the best Spanish white wine ever made, this ’86 Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva was released with thirty years of maturity. It is a spellbinding wine that slowly unfolds its kaleidoscopic layers of tropical and citrus fruits, crushed minerals, salted toffee, savory herbs, earthy truffles, white flower petals and too many more notes to name. Silky yet electric with acidity, this wine glides across the palate with a creamy mouth-feel; it’s an indescribable treat for the senses, and it will drink for decades. A blend of 97% Viura and 3% Malvasía deriving from a vineyard planted in 1945, grapes were crushed in a screwtop wine press and fermented in American oak. The wine aged for about 21 years in American oak barriques, about seven years in concrete tanks, and about three years in bottle; this ’86 Castillo Ygay Blanco Gran Reserva went to market in 2016. more info
