Shop Spanish Wine, Rioja

A famed wine lover once referred to Rioja as "the Bordeaux of Spain," because Rioja wine is complex, traditional, and can range from quaffable, everyday values to elegant, long-lived collectors' bottles.

Wines from Spain are becoming increasingly more recognized for their high quality and excellent pricing. From Rioja, the Crianzas and un-aged reds reflect medium body and softer fruit, while Reserva and Grand Reservas (through the use of longer oak aging) are considered fine wine.

Rioja is one of the oldest wine-growing appellations in Spain, and is particularly noted for Tempranillo, though Graciano and Garnacha may also be used.

    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, October 14, 2021
    A fresh, fruity red with plum and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Medium body. Clean and delicious finish. Tempranillo. Drink now.
    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2022
    Dark garnet to the eye, this wine has aromas of black currant, licorice and Marcona almond. Its smooth tannins feel good on the palate. Opening flavors of bittersweet chocolate and mint hit the tastebuds first, followed by flavors of blackberry and raspberry that are joined by touches of vanilla and baking spice on the finish.

  3. Cerro Añon Gran Reserva

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#95078

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
    Bright ruby-red. Expressive, mineral-accented aromas of ripe red and blue fruits and baking spices, plus coconut and vanilla overtones. Sweet, spicy and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy, oak-spiced blueberry and cherry liqueur flavors sharpened by a peppery spice accent. Smoothly combines richness and vivacity and finishes with impressive length, lingering sweetness and supple tannins that convey gentle grip. (Josh Raynolds)
    WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2022
    This deep red-violet-colored wine has a nose of cherry, hazelnut and orange peel. It is bright on entry, then gum-drying tannins settle in on the palate, bearing flavors of berry preserves, cranberry, cedar, mocha and juniper berry. The long finish offers a distinct note of almond toffee. (Mike Desimone)

  4. Muga Selección Especial

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#98656

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
    2018 was a cooler vintage, with a fairly long maturation, which made the wines somewhat fresher and less alcoholic, as showcased by the 2018 Selección Especial, a classical blend of the four red varieties from Rioja, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano with contained ripeness (14.05% alcohol) and good freshness. It fermented in oak casks with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak barrels, 40% of them new, for 26 months. They were not very happy with the vintage and had to sort and discard, but as they didn’t produce Prado Enea, Torre Muga or Haro, those grapes went into this wine. They are reluctant about 2018, but I think it was a vintage capable of the best and the worst, and this 2018 is floral, expressive and elegant. It’s medium to full- bodied, with very fine, chalky tannins, combining power and elegance. Amazing! 187,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2021. (Luis Gutiérrez)
    JD9494 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 6/13/2022
    The 2018 Muga Selección Especial is 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, and the rest Graciano y Mazuelo. It shows the fresher style of the vintage yet has good richness in its cassis and black raspberry fruit profile as well as notes of tobacco leaf, violets, and spicy oak. Straight-up gorgeous on the palate, it shines for its purity, has ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. I’m a fan. (Jeb Dunnuck)
    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, September 9, 2022
    Fresh and dried cherries, oyster shells, spice box and dried herbs on the nose. Flint stone, too. Structured, mineral and very fresh with tight and fine-grained tannins and a medium body. Vibrant and fragrant. Lightly austere at the end. Smaller production and greater selection this year - only Rioja Reserva and Seleccion Especial made. Try from 2024.
    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2022
    A medium- to full-bodied red, well-knit and harmonious, showing a fine, tense frame of chalky tannins fleshed out by crushed black raspberry, balsamico, dried fig and deep notes of ground coffee, iron and smoke. Long and lively on the herbal, spiced finish. Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano. Drink now through 2030. 20,000 cases made, 4,500 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)

  5. Cune Imperial Reserva

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#95880

    JS9696 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, September 22, 2020
    Extremely floral and attractive with crushed lavender, rosemary and violets to the blue fruit. Full body. Tight and integrated tannins and a lightly chewy finish. Shows depth and structure. One of the best from here in a long time. Drink in 2021, but already attention grabbing.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
    Deep, brilliant ruby. Cherry, cassis, vanilla and incense on the expansive nose, where a zesty mineral note adds vibrancy. Sappy and precise on the palate, offering sweet dark berry, cherry liqueur and violet pastille flavors along with hints of mocha and spicecake. Rich and ample in style but shows superb energy as well. Finishes sweet, seamless and extremely long, with lingering florality and polished, fully integrated tannins.
    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    The prototype of red from Rioja Alta could very well be the 2016 Imperial Reserva, fine, precise and powerful. The grapes for this cuvée were picked between October 10th and 25th, and it’s a canonical blend of 85% Tempranillo and the rest Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha with 14% alcohol and balancing freshness. It fermented with their own Imperial yeasts in oak vats of different sizes and matured in French and American oak barrels for 24 months. This wine has a very defined style that should not change; it has more oak than the Asúa Reserva and is made with grapes not only from Haro but also from Torremontalvo, Villalba and Briones. 2016 was a cooler year, and the wines are fresher and balanced. This has the mushroomy touch from the old cave and plenty of tannins that are going to require powerful food and/or time in bottle. A classic among classics. 150,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019.

    SP8888 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2020
    Lively and focused, this red delivers bright berry and cherry flavors, backed by leafy, smoky and vanilla notes. Light, firm tannins and brisk acidity keep this fresh and balanced. Energetic. Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Garnacha. Drink now through 2024. 90,000 cases made, 18,000 cases imported.

  8. Monopole Blanco Seco Rioja

    2021 / 750 ml. | Item#87439

    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 4, 2022
    This has aromas of sliced pears, green tea, apples, fennel and lemons. Medium-bodied, crisp and clean. Crunchy stone fruit with a subtle herbal note. Refreshing. Mainly from viura. Drink now.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
    The dry white 2021 Monopole is a wine that has been produced since 1915, the oldest brand for white wine in Spain. It’s classical with varietal character, young and fresh. The grapes, mostly Viura, were picked between September 21st and October 19th, and the wine achieved 13% alcohol, keeping a pH of 3.3 after fermenting in stainless steel, without using any oak, to keep the primary, fruit and floral characteristics of the grape. They consider 2021 a very good year for whites, with good freshness, but more heterogeneous, and Víctor Urrutia, CVNE’s CEO, favors 2020 against 2021. It’s primary, clean and fresh, with a tasty salty twist. Among the finest Monopole of recent years. 300,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2022. (Luis Gutiérrez)

    2013 / 750 ml. | Item#92324

    JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, October 14, 2021
    Enticing aromas of blackberries, leather and cedar with some dried flowers follow through to a medium to full body with firm tannins and a fresh, citrusy finish. Very traditional and real. Drink now.
    RP92+92+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
    2013 was a very tough vintage when they had to discard up to 100,000 kilograms of grapes and production of most of the wines was lower; it’s also the year when their father died, and they were very encouraged to make very good wines. The 2013 Viña Cubillo Tinto Crianza is the entry-level red from that year, the cooler of the shortlist of 2013, 2014 and 2015 I tasted next to each other. The wine is more austere even within the style they say is their wine for the by-the-glass market. It’s classical and developed with a polished palate after three years in barrel. It overdelivers for the conditions of the year. 90,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2019. (Luis Gutiérrez)

  13. La Rioja Alta Viña Arana Gran Reserva

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#98486

    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2021
    Brilliant ruby. Energetic, spice- and smoke-accented black raspberry and candied cherry aromas are complemented by suggestions of rose oil, coconut and cured tobacco. Youthfully chewy and focused on entry, offering concentrated red and dark berry, cherry cola and candied licorice flavors that deepen steadily with air. Floral pastille and oak spice notes linger on the impressively long, smoke-tinged finish, which shows excellent clarity and polished tannins. (Josh Raynolds)
    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
    The 2015 Viña Arana Gran Reserva, which was a Reserva until 2011, wants to showcase a new Gran Reserva style that combines freshness and joy with intensity, sophistication and aging potential through a blend of Tempranillo from Rodezno with 5% Graciano from Fuenmayor. The grapes were put through optical sorting and fermented in stainless steel for 19 days, and the wine matured in American oak barrels for three years with rackings every six months. This is the classical Haro style of Rioja Claret. They found that some special vintages of this wine behaved like a Gran Reserva, with a style that was closer to their 904. So, they wanted to make this consistent from vintage to vintage, a new a style of Gran Reserva, easier to understand than the 904 or 890. From 2012, the wine changes and they replaced the Mazuelo that was used in the past with Graciano, which they think is a grape very apt for Gran Reserva wines. I saw the wine with the 2015 vintage, a more developed nose with tertiary notes and some funkiness. They don’t want this to be the small brother of 904. It’s the entry level for Gran Reserva wines, for a younger generation; it’s fresher and less complex but with good aging potential. In a year when they don’t produce 904, the grapes would go to Viña Arana. The palate reveals quite a lot of tannin and a dry finish. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2019.
