Three of our wine brands were recently featured in aWine Spectator online article titled '10 Spanish Reds to Beat the Cold'
Venta La Ossa, Valdrinal and Volver all made the list.
VALDRINAL | Ribera del Duero Crianza 2015 Score: 90 | $17 WS review: This solid red features a thick texture, backed by firm tannins, with balsamic acidity energizing the currant, dried cherry, loamy earth and blood orange flavors. A rustic style, but shows density and character. Drink now through 2027. 7,000 cases made, 2,600 cases imported.—T.M.
DOMINIO MANO A MANO | Venta La Ossa 2016 Score: 91 | $19 WS review: This red is polished and dense. Black cherry and plum flavors are fresh and focused, backed by mocha, anise and mineral notes. The tannins and acidity are balanced and well-integrated. Subtle but complete. Drink now through 2026. 4,200 cases made, 500 cases imported.—T.M.
VOLVER | La Mancha Single Vineyard 2017 Score: 89 | $17 WS review: Blackberry and currant flavors show a ripe, syrupy character in this rich red, backed with mint, espresso and loamy earth notes. The muscular tannins are well-integrated, balanced by sweet-tart acidity. Big, in the modern style. Drink now through 2024. 10,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported.—T.M.
