 Wines from the August 9th wine tasting are available to purchase:


1.  Bodegas Naia Las Brisas Rueda Blanco $11.99/bottle

International Wine Cellar 90 points

60% Verdejo, 30% Viura, 10% Sauvignon Blanc. Rueda is in the central part of Spain, northwest of Madrid and southwest of Ribera del Duero. The chalky soils there are conducive to dry, minerally whites  Light yellow-gold color. Aromas of ripe melon and pear, with floral and white pepper qualities adding complexity. Round, fleshy and appealingly fruity, offering honeydew and yellow apple flavors and a touch of lemon pith for vivacity. Finishes long and smooth, with strong punch and lingering citrus and floral notes.  A great match for white meats and seafood.

2.  Laxas Albarino 2013 16.99/bottle

Wine Enthusiast 90 pts/Wine & Spirits Magazine 91 pts

Rias Baixas is located in the northwest corner of Spain on the Atlantic coast north of Portugal. All wines with the D.O. Rias Baixas designation must be made entirely from the Albarino varietal. Rias Baixas enjoys the rainiest climate in Spain, which is a requirement for growing the Albarino grape. Clear straw yellow color with green nuances. Fruity and floral aromas of apple, stone fruits, and apricot. Fresh with a touch of acidity to balance the structure and body.

3.  Bodegas Naia Verdejo $13.99/bottle

International Wine Cellar 90 pts.

100% Verdejo.  Bodegas Naia works with old Verdejo vines 20 to 90 years old planted three decades ago in the district of La Seca, one of the most highly renowned areas of the Rueda.  Naia is 88% stainless steel fermented and 12% fermented and aged on French oak barrels.  Light gold color. Aromas of lime, must and kiwi, together with the classic plant-like qualities of Verdejo.  Beautifully fresh, with a long and dry finish.

4.  Filon  $9.99/bottle

International Wine Cellar 90 pts

100% Garnacha.  The grapes for Filon come from old vine vineyards, 30 to 40 years-old 3,000 ft. above sea level, around the north zone of Calatayud in northern Spain.  Aged for three months in two- and three-year-old barrels.  Bright ruby, pungent aromas of black raspberry and fresh rose. Lush and complex, offering potent flavors of cherry, blackberry, floral pastilles and cola. Rich but lively wine with good closing punch and gentle tannins.

5.  Bodega Pazos del Rey Sila Mencia  $15.99/bottle

International Wine Cellar 90 pts

100% Mencia.  From the Monterrei D.O. right at the Portugese border.  Fermented in stainless steel and aged in a combination of new and 2-year-old French oak barrels for 5 months.  Bright violet color. Aromas of cassis, black raspberry, licorice and black cardamom are complicated by cracked pepper and herbal nuances. Suave on entry, then tighter in the middle, with good lift to the flavors of red berry, violet and minerals. Finishes with gentle tannic grip and very good spicy persistence.

6.  Bodegas Luzon ‘Altos de Luzon’ $15.99/bottle

International Wine Cellar 91 pts

50% Monastrell, 25% Tempranillo, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.  Aged 12 Months in French & American oak.  Jumilla is situated in southeast Spain, north of the Murcia region on a plateau surrounded by mountains. Its climate is continental influenced by the Mediterranean sea with warm days and cool nights.  Inky ruby color. Highly aromatic, exotic bouquet of red and dark berries, violet, vanilla and wood smoke. Broad and deep, showing sweet black raspberry and blueberry flavors, a velvety texture and bright mineral snap. Nicely blends richness and energy and finishes with lingering sweetness and supple, even tannins.
