Must-have Spanish Reds


2016 Alberto Orte: Escalada Do Bibei  Size: 750ml  $59.95
Immediate aromatics of cinnamon, fennel, clove, violets, and wild berries. The sensation on the palate is striking: fantastic minerality and a lengthy finish. Blend of Mencia, Merenzao (Trousseau), and Brancellao from vines 80-100 years old in a cool climate region of Spain, Valdeorras.

2016 Alberto Orte: Escalada Do Sil  Size: 750ml  $34.95 
Gorgeous notes of baking and five-spice flavors frame those of red fruits, rose petals, and game. Blend of Merenzao, Mencia, and Alicante, also hailing from Valdeorras. A versatile pairing for dishes featuring mushrooms, red meat, or white fish.

2016 Alberto Orte: Atlantida Tintilla Size: 750ml  $32.95
Expressive umami flavors laced with black raspberry, blood orange, bitter cherry and smoky spice. The Tintilla grapes for this bottling grow in the chalky white albariza soil of Jerez in a single secluded sea-side parcel. What a rare treat to taste a red wine of terroir from a region almost exclusively dedicated to white wine production.
