Special Spanish Tasting,

Thursday, Sept 20th from 5:30 to 7:30

Stop by after work on Thursday when we’ll be pouring a lineup of great wines from Spain. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show off these great wines, so we fit in into the middle of the week. The wines are favorites of the critics and we like them as well. Drop in and have a bite of tapas, and check them out.
 
2011 Bodegas La Cana, Albarino $15
The La Cana comes from the most northern part of the Rias Baixas near the Atlantic Ocean. The vines are planted in the pergola system, traditional for this area, in Sandy soil. The wine is partially barrel fermented and rests sur lie. “Mineral, lemon zest, baking spices, and floral notes inform the nose of this round, smooth textured, savory white, with excellent volume and length.” WA 90pts”
 
2010 Bodegas Iluce, Rio Madre, Rioja, Graciano $10
Graciano is used in Rioja to add floral bouquet and complexity to their blends. Rarely is it used on its own. The Rio Madre lets the grape shine in its own right. From 20 year old vines, the wine is deep with exuberant aromas and luscious flavors of blackberries and cherries tell you this is not a Tempranillo. Not to be missed.

 
2010 Bodegas Atalaya, Laya $10
70% Grenache Tintoria, 30% Monastrell
From high altitude vines in Almansa comes this dark fruited , rich Spanish blend. Garnacha Tintorera is known for its deep color and here it coats the glass and imparts aromas of brooding black fruits, licorice, espresso, and pepper. Dense, savory, rich, round and succulent, it’s a lot of wine for the money.

2009 Bodegas Can Blau, Monsant $16
40% Carñena, 40% Syrah, 20% Garnacha
The Monsant appellation in Spain is shaped like a horseshoe surrounding Priorat. Can Blau’s estate there consists of acres of vineyards with an average age of 35 years. “Wood smoke, spice box, incense, lavender, black cherry and plum aromas are followed by a mouth-filling, round, dense wine with outstanding grip and length. It over-delivers in a big way.” WA 90pts
 
2007 Bodegas Muga, Rioja, Reserva $25
70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 10% Mazuelo and Graciano.
Muga was founded by Aurora Cano and her husband Isaac in 1932, although the family were growers and did not commence winemaking themselves until the 1960s. Under Aurora’s son, Isaac Jr. Muga fostered a reputation for high quality, classic Rioja wine sourced from an almost incalculable number of tiny parcels. The Reserva is a traditional styled Rioja, aged for 6 months in wooden vats before spending 2 years in 60% new French and American oak. It has rich layered fruit that is smooth-textured and concentrated with notes of smoked meats and tobacco. WA 92pts
