Price: $49.99

Juicy and broad-shouldered, the ’06 Rioja Reserva Viña Tondonia retains its elegance in its fine tannins and zesty acidity. Copious brooding blue and crisp red fruits dance with licorice, vanilla, new leather, forest floor and crushed violets in the wine’s spicy, captivating nose. Silky and electric, this wine glides across the palate with a seamless, mesmerizing balance, and while you can enjoy this Rioja Reserva upon release with liberal decanting, it’ll drink beautifully for decades. A blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho, and the remainder Graciano and Mazuelo, grapes ferment with only natural yeasts, and the wine ages for six years in barrel and six in bottle before release. more info

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
