Descendientes de J. Palacios Petalos del Bierzo 2015
'Petalos' is D.J.P.'s regional introduction wine to the Mencias of Bierzo. Largely from Corullon fruit (including declassified material from the single vineyard sites), but includes some material from sites managed, rather than owned by Alvaro and Ricardo. Absolutely gorgeous, plush, elegant and floral - trademark roses and pepper tree perfume, bright and earthy at once, red fruits hybridised with the juice of rose petals, peppercorn and roast meat juice. It's very savoury, elegant, satiny but dry, long and supple with sour cherries and dried sage.

Artadi Viña El Pison 2002Made from 100% Tempranillo grapes from a single vineyard planted 1945, planted on pure limestone. Aged for 18-24 months in French oak. Very heavy triage, 4-6 week fermentation during vinification.
Bodegas y Vinedos Ponce Clos Lojen 2009This wine presents deep red color; it's almost black in your glass. Why? It's due to the red-skinned, red-fleshed natural of Bobal. The flavor is black fruits and sweet but only for a second as the perfectly integrated tannins sweep over the palate and aromas of banana, bubble gum, leather, tobacco and candy linger in the long finish.
Lopez de Heredia Viña Cubillo Crianza 2008Color: Clear, bright ruby. Nose: Fresh and slight aroma to licorice with consistent texture and persistent aroma. Taste: Smooth, fresh and persistent. Gastronomy: Perfect with all meat dishes, tapas and charcutery.
Bodegas Olivares Altos de la Hoya 2012Aged in a combination of barrique and demi-muid. A few are new but most are 2nd and 3rd passage barrels from elite Burgundy producers. Most of the region is planted to Mourvèdre, locally know as Monastrell. Jumilla's summers boast hot days and cool nights, resulting in fantastically ripe grapes with good acidity. Bodegas Olivares's vineyards are in the northernmost zone of La Hoya de Santa Ana. This is the coolest subzone of Jumilla, with sandy, lime-rich soils that produce intensely aromatic wines.
Las Rocas de San Alejandro Vinas Viejas Garnacha 2007Calatayud benefits from a continental climate with vast temperature differences between night and day. Harvests are much later than in other parts of Aragón and the acidity/maturity/alcohol ratios tend to be more balanced. As most of the vineyards lie on what was (thousands of years ago) an old river basin, the soil is comprised of brown limestone and loam over slate and gypsum. This particular soil is also quite good for production of olives, cherries, and other fruits.
Bodegas Lan Crianza 2010Brilliant red cherry with violet hues. Elegant ageing aromas with hints of fruit. Serve with cold starters, pasta, poultry. Perfect as wine by glass.
