Aixala Alcait 2013 Priorat Coster de l'Alzina

This 100% Carignan wine from certified organic grapes planted on decomposed granitic soils is a fantastic value. Aged in neutral oak with minimal addition of sulfur, the wine is a prime example of enjoyable but accessible Priorat wines. With a full body, bright acidity and integrated tannin, the wine is smooth and minerally textural. The bouquet is beautifully complex with flavors of dark fruit, earth, tobacco dirt, pepper and herbs de provence. Enjoy this wine with a great steak, braised lamb, or Italian sausage.

The ripeness and power of the 2015 vintage is balanced on the full-flavored palate of licorice, black plums, wild herbs, and bitter earth with fresh acidity and grippy tannins. A divine pairing for meat or stews, at an everyday price. Ariana Rolich

Albamar 2016 Rías Baixas Albariño 69 Arrobas

This is a truly memorable Albarino and will forever be a Chambers St. favorite! Xurxo selects grapes from the old vines of several tiny vineyards, and the wine is vinified simply in stainless steel (no lees, no wood, no batonnage) for an unaffected, pure, if not perfect glass of wine. Invigorating and long, 69 Arrobas combines a sheer, salty veneer with a deep, concentrated core of apricot, orange honey, sultry white grapefruit, and tart tropical fruit. We wouldn't hesitate to pair complex flavors with this truly exquisite wine.

Alvar de Dios Hernandez 2015 El Maderal Vaguera White

Alvar de Dios Vagüera is a blend of  Verdejo, Godello, Palomino, and Albillo, coming from a small parcel of 500 vines of about 100-year-old, at about 950 meters of altitude on clay soils in El Maderal. Fermented whole-clustered with native yeast in old barrels, the wine is then aged on lies  for 12 months without filtering or clarifying. On the nose, the bouquet is fresh and vibrant with tart citrus, white peach, white flowers, almond and saline notes. On the palate, the wine is crisp with bright acidity and a delicious creaminess that reveals mid-palate.  A pretty special wine! Pair this wine with grilled fish, summer salads, cold cucumber soup  and gazpacho.  Caroline Coursant

Alvar de Dios Hernandez 2016 Arribes Camino de los Arrieros

Alvar de Dios is exploring regions and grapes of western Spain that we'd never tasted wine from before. This is very exciting! Camino de los Arrieros comes from the north end of Arribes del Duero, the savagely beautiful borderland that flanks the Duero River, where it cleaves Portugal from Spain.  The 2016 vintage of Camino de los Arrieros is  de Dios' first village wine from Villadepera, where he farms a vast mix of grape varieties on soils of red, white, and black volcanic schists. 60% Juan Garcia (otherwise known as Mouraton), with Garnacha Tintorera, Trincadeira, Rufete, Bastarda, Bruñal (and more) collide seamlessly in this bright and lifted red. Reminiscent of cool Galician reds, with taut, vibrant red and purple berry fruit, hints of pepper, and poignant minerality. Ariana Rolich

Aciano is 100% Tinta de Toro from Alvar de Dios' grandfather's own-rooted vineyard  in El Pego, on the southern limit of the Toro DO, planted nearly 100 years ago on pure sandy soils, at 700 meters altitude. Aromas of black and red berry, black plum, licorice, smoky spice, and mineral earth mingle with tangy minerality and good acidity. A great Tinta de Toro example -- decant for best results.

Made of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Viura from Artuke's organically farmed family estate in the Rioja Alavesa, this wine is a great bargain. This is a traditionally-made Rioja with a freshness that most wines of the region don't have. Whole cluster fermented and raised in concrete tanks, the wine is juicy and floral with aromas of wild violets, ripe cherry, crushed red and purple berries, soft earth, and wild green herbs. Drink this wine with a slight chill and pair it with everything from pizza to paellas! Caroline Coursant

Bernabeleva 2015 Sierra de Gredos San Martin de Valdeiglesias Viña Bonita

Viña Bonita is an aptly-named Garnacha from an 80+ year-old hilltop vineyard planted on granite in San Martin de Valdeiglesias. A swirl of heady aromas -- cherry blossoms, sweet berries, and rose -- primes the palate for supple and juicy flavors of sappy strawberry, ripe raspberry and  bitter cranberry fruit, flecked with resinous Mediterranean herbs, precise minerality, lift, and length. Marc Isart of Bernabeleva was a founding member of Comando G, along with Dani Landi and Fernando García, and shares their talent for sustaining freshness, even in difficult, dry years like 2015. For fans of Bernabeleva's Camino de Navaherreros, Viña Bonita is a special treat! Ariana Rolich

Bodega Cauzon 2016 Cortes y Graena (Granada) Pi Noir

Ramon Saavedra makes delicious zero-added-sulphur  wines in the tiny hamlet of Cortes y Graena in the Granada province of Andalusia. This Pinot Noir is ripe and bright, but at 12%, a balanced and unique experience of the noble grape. Although harvested earlier than previous years, the 2016 is significant, with black cherries, spice, and a decent amount of grip. High altitude vineyards provide ample acidity to frame the material. This is a singular expression of Pinot Noir and worth drinking over a day or two, or aging for up to 10 years.

The Cauzón usually accounts for about half of Ramon's production, and is all Tempranillo, aged in stainless steel with occasional use of small old barrels. Aromas of dried herbs, and a lovely spice on the tip of the tongue. There's a subtle impression of dried fruit, but the wine is fresh and alive, so it's also full of life and has delicious ripe berry fruit. High altitude Tempranillo from Andalucia - truly a special treat and one of the most intriguing and delicious expressions of the grape I've ever tried. Eben Lillie

Ramon Saavedra farms organically and adds no sulfur whatsoever to his wines. His vineyards face north on alluvial soils at the base of the Sierra Nevada range at over 1000 meters altitude in Andalucia, resulting in impressive freshness and definition. Mozuelo is mostly Garnacha with some Garnacha Tintorera, de-stemmed and pressed after 8 days of maceration and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Grape skins, fresh flowers, and thyme on nose, with the flavors of perfectly ripe purple berries on the palate. It's silkly and generous, but as with all of the Cauzón wines, very balanced and drinkable.

Casa Aurora (Germán Blanco) 2015 Albares Vino de Parcela Valle del Rio

Valle del Rio is emblematic of the focus and depth of the Casa Aurora project, where idiosyncratic swatches of land, planted to previously unimaginable mixtures of vines, are translated into utterly singular sensory combinations that excite intellectual pleasures as well as hedonistic ones. In winegrower Germán Blanco's words: "From little things, big things grow. If I blend these special things into each other, you can't taste it. And you may not like it... but it's special!" Well, Germán, we like it a lot! Valle del Rio is a .58 hectare parcel of 40-100 year old vines at 820 meters altitude, composed of approximately 60% Garnacha Tintorera, 10% Garnacha, 10% Mencía, and 17% Palomino and the rest Godello, planted on a south-facing slope of red clay and decomposed granite. 2015 is marked by mouth-watering, forward purple berries and violet florals, in balance with the typically dominant notes of crunchy blackberries, damp clay, rocks, and ink.

Colet Navazos 2012 Penedès Extra Brut Reserva

There is no Champagne method sparkler like this one, a collaboration between Sergi Colet in Penedes and Equipo Navazos, the Andalusian dream team behind La Bota. The base wine is Chardonnay from Penedes and the dosage is manzanilla pasada from Sanlucar de Barrameda; this combination is fascinating, with flor aromas from the manzanilla accenting the earthy bass notes of the wine. Long aging on the lees before disgorgement (40+months) and a process called autolysis create umami and yeasty bread notes in Champagne method sparklers that are found in fino sherries and manzanillas with age as well. Umami, salt, citrus, and long, briny, mineral profile make this a serious sparkler to build a seafood or poultry course around. Ariana Rolich

Comando G 2015 Sierra de Gredos Villanueva de Avila Tumba del Rey Moro

Everything about Tumba del Rey Moro vineyard is vertigo-inducing: the treacherous access, the steep 1/2 hectare scrap of rocky granitic mountainside, and the wild, dizzying beauty of the wine itself. 65-year-old vines of Garnacha cling to this site at 1100m in Villanueva de Avila in the Alto Alberche Valley, an area with continental climate, where Garnacha enjoys a long growing season and a very special expression.  Tumba del Rey Moro has subtle aromas of sweet, delicate florals, exotic spice, mountain scrub, and soil, with a long, brisk, sapid palate, laced with shimmering wild berry and ripe wild strawberry fruit, flower petals and mountain air and earth, savory minerals, and with a fine-grained tannin. The length of this wine is inspiring for Grenache lovers and skeptics alike and critical acclaim has been heaped upon Comando G. There is mystery here that must be experienced, a feeling that the raw power and  soul of the rocky wilderness has been deftly conjured into a most unlikely and ethereal wine. Ariana Rolich

Corisca 2015 Rías Baixas Albariño Ecologico

We are very proud to work with Corisca ("storm" in the local dialect), a certified organic Albariño made by Natalia Rodríguez and her father José María, pioneers in the region (the first in Rías Baixas to be certified organic) who work tirelessly to perfect the balance of this wine - the only one that they make. Corisca displays pure Albariño character and heightened refreshment at an everyday price. Salty, stony aromas with hints of orange oil and green herbs precede the elegant palate, full of twinkling citrus and stone fruit, bright sea spray, minerals, and a long, complex finish. An invigorating apéritif and easy pairing for poultry, fish, and vegetables. We cannot imagine a more delicious "house" Albariño! Ariana Rolich.    Want a great wine with your fish? Corisca is one of the best wines you can buy to pair with! With great salinity, pretty texture and good acidity, the wine works beautifully with white flesh fish, such as mahi mahi, striped bass or skate, and many seafoods, from crab to scallop.

Maldivinas 2015 Castilla y Leon Sierra de Gredos Combate Pink

I heartily recommend drinking more deeply pigmented rosés throughout winter (especially at holiday feasts). This is an addictive, fuschia-hued, slightly off-dry rosado of Garnacha from Maldivinas' prime vineyards in Cebreros, the heart of the Sierra de Gredos. Two-thirds of the fruit comes from vineyards on schist and one-third from granitic soils. The perfumed nose of hibiscus, wild flowers, and damp brown earth continues onto the wild, juicy palate of strawberry preserves, raspberry patch, and black tea. Lots of bright, tangy acidity is present to balance the rich, wild fruit and the touch of sugar that remains in the wine. An explosively delicious rosé for sipping and an inspired pairing for any cured or smoked pork products, dark poultry (like turkey or duck), Asian fare, cheeses, and fruity or chocolatey desserts. One barrel produced. Ariana Rolich

Marenas 2017 Cordoba-Andalucia Montepilas

A fascinating white from José Miguel Márquez, winemaker at Marenas Viñedo y Bodega, in Andalucia. Montepilas is an indigenous grape, found only in the Montila-Moriles D.O. (Denominación de Origen). Though it very much looks and acts like an orange wine, it is in fact a direct press. The skins of Montepilas grapes get pretty dark when ripe, so all color comes naturally from the skins without maceration. Nice round orchard fruit and subtle texture reminscent of chamomile or verbena tea. No SO2 added. Eben Lillie

Her Negramoll vines come from vineyards in both the fertile north of La Palma island at very high altitudes (up to 1400 meters), and in the warmer, lower southern zones, which combine for an alluring, layered fruit profile. In the Canary Islands, fresh red wines are frequently consumed alongside fresh grilled fish with herbs. This is highly recommended!

Oriol Artigas 2016 Alella La Rumbera Blanco 1.5 L

This is all Pansa Blanca from three different vineyard sites. It's a perfect introduction to the grape, and a gateway to Oriol's single-vineyard expressions. The parcels are all on granitic sand, which lends a particularly salty and spicy character to the wine. Mostly de-stemmed, with 20% of the grapes left on the skins for a short period (1-2 weeks), and aging for 10 months on the lees in stainless steel. This is beautifully textured and also zippy and fresh. Though I'm no expert of Pansa Blanca, I'm convinced that one must at least try this wine to understand the characteristics and potential of the grape.  Eben Lillie

Ponce 2017 Manchuela Las Cañadas Rose

"Las Cañadas" is a blend of Bobal (90%) and Albilla (10%), planted in 1965 on clay calcarious soils.  Established in Manchuela (a D.O. (Denominación de Origen) close to Valencia) since 2005, Juan Antonio Ponce practices organic and biodynamic farming. A proponent of minimal intervention, Juan Antiono harvests by hand and uses native yeast. The grapes are directly pressed in stainless steel and aged in 600L French oak barrels for six months. A minimal amount of sulfur is added at bottling and there is no fining or filtering. The result is a wine with mineral elegance and freshness, with a beautiful creamy texture, light bouquet of orange, clementine, strawberry and stone fruit with spice undertones - Las Cañadas is delicious! Drink this vibrant lovely rosé by itself, or with grilled octopus, tuna tartare, or any bright salad. Caroline Coursant

Quinta Milú 2017 Ribera del Duero Milú

This organically farmed Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) wine is a great value! Coming from several different parcels at high altitude averaging 30-50 years old in the village of La Aguilera, planted on clay limestone soils, the grapes are whole clustered and infused rather than macerated, and then fermented and aged in wood. 2017 was a difficult vintage for Germán R. Blanco, with frost and low production, resulting in a more concentrated wine but still showing great vibrancy, good acidity and supple tannins. The wine continues to display the fresh side of Tinto Fino, with flavors of juicy dark berry and black plum, light floral, and herbal and savory undertones. Perfect for pairing with grilled meat.

Raventós I Blanc 2015 Conca del Riu Anoia de Nit Reserva Rosé 1.5 L

Raventós stepped outside of the Cava appellation in 2012 to create the Conca del Riu Anoia designation, which is committed to prioritizing the area's indigenous varieties, estate fruit, longer elevage, and biodynamic methods. The de Nit rosé was the first Conca wine and continues to sate and impress us with its lively expression of Raventós' calcareous soils, rich with marine fossils. Lighter than ever in 2015, a pale rose gold, not quite the color of pale rosé, this is an incredibly versatile sparkler that has crisp, pretty stone fruit and under-ripe raspberry fruit, but is far more mineral-driven than fruity.

Ruben Diaz NV Castilla y León Cebreros La Sorpresa Garnacha 500ml

Ruben Diaz is the steward of the ancient tradition in Cebreros of aging red and white wines perpetually in small soleras, tapping them for a few bottles' worth of mature, textured elixirs, called "rancio" or "dorado" wines (some are sweet and some are dry). Diaz has some of the area's oldest examples of these wines and none of them are commercially available, making a tasting from this collection feel akin to a secret museum visit. Thankfully, he has started a number of his own rancio soleras and perpetual cuvees. This one is made from red Garnacha wines from multiple vintages spanning 2006-2013. A sheer, rosy copper hue in the glass, with aromas of hazelnut, orange oil, acetone, and caramel. The senses are bracing for sweetness, but the palate is dry, strong and nuanced, with flavors of dried apricot, raspberry eau de vie, apple skins, sandalwood, dried mediterranean herbs, cacao, and nut skins. An example of Garnacha's supreme versatility! Ariana Rolich

Ruben Diaz NV Castilla y León Cebreros La Sorpresa Saca No. 6 500ml

The Sorpresa is a long-aged Albillo Real, stored in a small solera started in 2004 when Ruben Diaz found a barrel of 100+ year-old Albillo in a cellar in Cebreros. This ancient Albillo is the base wine of the solera, which he refreshes regularly (though not every year) with young Albillo. Some of the barrels develop a thin layer of flor. He bottles sacas of 200 bottles at a time. Saca #6 was bottled in 2014, pulled from a barrel refreshed in 2004 and 2007. A perfect wine for customers interested in Amontillado or Palo Cortado style sherries. But note that, unlike sherry, Ruben's vinos de tonel are not fortified! Ariana Rolich

RuBor Viticultores 2015 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros SADE Albillo Real

Albillo Real is the great white grape of the Sierra de Gredos, a massive mountain range west of Madrid, where Garnacha reigns supreme. Albillo is expressive, earthy and versatile among styles of wine, from crisp whites to orange wines, to historic sweet and rancio styles. The grapes for SADE come from a single vineyard in Cebreros, picked quite ripe and given a 40-day maceration on the skins, resulting in velvety tannin, flavors of musky apricot, papaya, squash, honeycomb, salty cheese rind, and earthy mineral depth. Terrific with a grilled pork chop, roasted chicken, roasted fish with citrus, earthy root vegetables, cheeses or charcuterie. Ariana Rolich

RuBor Viticultores 2015 Sierra de Gredos Cebreros Groove Garnacha

Groove comes from a unique spot in Cebreros, the highest granitic vineyard in the village,  planted on very sandy soils a 900m to 50-year-old Grenache vines with very low yields of small grapes with thick skins, with electric tannin and acid. This wine consistently throws people off, as it is not fruit-driven.  Groove is intense and distinctly mineral- and acid-driven, with flavors of brambly and herbal wild berry fruit, brilliant acidity, and hints of herbs and coriander. Cool and pretty, even in the intense 2015 vintage. Ariana Rolich

This rosé is probably one of the best rosés I have ever had!

Terroir Al Límit 2014 Priorat Dits del Terra

2014 is an incredible vintage of Dits del Terra, a south-facing, single vineyard of 90+ year-old Carignan vines, one of the first plots Dominik Huber and Eben Sadie pinpointed when starting Terroir al Limit. This bottling is always a highlight of Dominik Huber's lineup. Structured and serious, layered and spicy, with crunchy black berry fruit, exotic herbs, and loads of gritty mineral earth, fermented with whole clusters and aged in  large 3500L Stockinger foudre. Every year I take note of how Dits del Terra gets better and more interesting every year. Obviously, it is a perennial favorite! Ariana Rolich

Ulibarri Artzaiak 2016 Bizkaiko Txakolina

The Ulibarri family has a long history in the Basque country, primarily as shepherds and cheesemakers (Artzaiak is the Basque word for shepherd). They also have vineyards planted to the traditional grape of the region - Hondarrabi Zuri - and have existed as a bodega since the 18th century. Farming is certified organic (extremely rare for the area – they might be the only ones!) and the sheep play a major role in the vineyards, handling weed control and providing natural fertilizer. In an area where winemakers harvest early and often inject the wines with CO2 to make them a bit fizzy (a characteristic associated with the wines – think Vinho Verde), the Ulibarri brothers harvest at full ripeness, allow indigenous yeast fermentation, and let the wines age on the lees. There is no filtration or stabilization - this is REAL Txakoli! The 2016 is fresh and even has the slightest tickle on the tongue from the natural acidity. A fantastic thirst-quenching white from a magical place! Eben Lillie

Venus La Universal 2016 Montsant Dido Rosa

Sara Perez and Rene Barbier Jr., both natives of Priorat, created a delicious wine, combining freshness and complexity.  A blend of red and white grapes from Montsant (Garnacha, and Syrah, plus Macabeu, Garnacha Blanca, and Garnacha Gris), the grapes are pressed together, co-fermented for six months, and aged for approximately 14 months in 10-year old barrels before bottling.  The result is fantastic, with a wine displaying gorgeous notes of pale strawberry, apricot, juicy white peach, creamy florals, and slight herbal and salty minerals. With good acidity and a beautiful finish, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for several years. Caroline Coursant

Vina Mein 2014 Ribeiro Tinto Atlantico Elaborado Por Comando G

This is a very special wine made under the guidance of the highly prestigeous Comando G (only 1,300 bottles are produced each year). The grapes, a blend of Caíño, Brancellao, and Souson (about 20-year old vines) planted on granite soils in the D.O. of Ribeiro, are fermented with native yeast and aged for 10 months in old barrels with no filtering or fining. Dark berries, purple and rose floral, Moroccan spice, wild earth and hibiscus notes are prevalent on the nose, while a superb minerality and bright acidity shows off on the palate. The resulting wine is fresh and vibrant with plenty of tension and energy. Pair this wine with fun dishes such as, grilled octopus and chorizo and blackened fish tacos, vegetable lasagna and manchego cheese.  Caroline Coursant
