2014 Blanco "Penalba Lopez" (Peñalba Lopez, Bodegas)

40% Tempranillo Blanco, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Viura, 10% Chardonnay

PEAR & LEMON, ALMOND, CHAMOMILE & SHERRYISH WAXINESS

Gleamingly golden in the glass, this barrel-aged white is a a powerful and elegant enigma. Combining Tempranillo Blanco (a light skinned mutation of the famous red variety occasionally referred to as Blanca del País) with very ripe Sauvignon Blanc, Viura, and Chardonnay has resulted in a distinctive blend that’s one of a kind yet has the uncanny ability to remind us simultaneously of rich, white Rioja, Fino Sherry, and toast-driven Cali Chard. Powerhouse!

Cava Brut Nature "Penalba Lopez" (Peñalba Lopez, Bodegas)

Bodegas Peñalba Lopez, Cava Brut Nature "Peñalba Lopez", Ribera del Duero, Spain

90% Viura (Macabeu), 10% Chardonnay

CITRUS & ASIAN PEAR, CLEAN & CALCEREOUS

This restrained and refreshing gem is made mostly from Viura, the dominant grape in “Cava country” or Catalonia, where it’s known as Macabeu, but this is not Cava country. In fact, Finca Torremilanos is the only producer in Ribera del Duero which has been entrusted with the ability to describe its bubblies as “Cava.” Pristinely pale with vaguely emerald undercurrents, its born among vines aging as many as 180 years and mixes a minerally zest through its citrus and orchard fruit.

Serving Suggestion: Egg, potato, & onion frittata w/ fresh greens-garbanzo salad & tarragon vinaigrette.

2009 Ribera del Duero "Coleccion" (Peñalba Lopez, Bodegas)

Bodegas Peñalba Lopez, Ribera del Duero Tinto "Finca Torremilanos Coleccion", Ribera del Duero, Spain, 2009

100% Tempranillo

RICH AND SUAVE, DARK FRUITS, CREAMY OAK

Coleccion represents the culmination of decades of history for the Penalba Lopez family in Ribera del Duero. Winemaker Ricardo Penalba Lopez selects the best plots of biodynamically farmed Tempranillo on the property to make this flagship wine. These vines average 100 years old. This wine spends two and a half years in French oak, picking up rich, roasty vanilla notes, and several more years mellowing perfectly in bottle before Ricardo deems it ready for release.

Serving Suggestions: Beef shanks braised in three onion broth alongside creamy, cheesy and buttery polenta.

2016 Ribera del Duero Tinto Roble "Montecastrillo" (Peñalba Lopez, Bodegas)

Bodegas Peñalba Lopez, Ribera del Duero Tinto "Montecastrillo", Ribera del Duero, Spain, 2016

100% Tempranillo

BLACK CHERRY & BOYSENBERRY, SANDALWOOD & TOBACCO

Northern-central Spain’s Ribera del Duero has a well-earned reputation regarding its outstanding Tempranillo-based reds, but we tend to be impressed with sturdiness that its wines exemplify rather than how easy they are on the wallet. This righteous rendition, however, manages to muster the concentration that we crave and expect in an affably juicy, less tannic package that doesn’t break the bank. Four months time in French oak barrels seals the deal with a supply cedary spice!

Serving Suggestion: Empanadas w/ ground beaf, lentils, & creamy corn. Grilled flatbread w/ caramelized onions & manchego.
