Temporary out stock -->"The 2008 Senda 66 spent 8 months in new French oak. Purple/black in color, it sports a fragrant nose of spice box, lavender, blueberry, and blackberry. Smooth-textured, layered, and remarkably rich on the palate for its humble price, this lengthy effort will drink nicely over the next 5-6 years."

"Bright violet color. Assertive aromas of red berry preserves, spices and dried flowers, with a spicy note that builds with air. Juicy and focused in the mouth, offering fresh redcurrant and cherry flavors and very good energy. Fine-grained tannins add shape to the long, spice-accented finish. This is a remarkable value."

"The 2008 Crianza is 100% Tempranillo aged in American oak for 12 months. It has an attractive, gentle bouquet of black cherries, pressed flowers, black tea and a touch of cocoa. The palate is well-balanced with supple, fine tannins and a finely tuned, harmonious finish that offers subtle dark chocolate notes on the aftertaste. This represents very fine, traditional Rioja at a very fine price point. Drink now-2016.

"Heredad Ugarte’s 2009 Cincuenta is 100% Tempranillo aged for 10 months in French oak. It offers up toasty tobacco, spice, blackberry, and black cherry aromas. On the palate it is elegant, savory, and stylish with layered flavors. This pleasurable offering will drink nicely through 2019."
