|1308. 2006 Baigorri Reserva Rioja, BODEGAS BAIGORRI, RIOJA
Sweet red fruit, cream, spice and cedar, notes of new oak. Concentrated, powerful, very focused style, with lovely refreshing acidity. Powerful, but fine-textured tannins. Manages to be elegant as well as powerful.
|1315. 2006 Cadac, CELLER MARTIN FAIXO, EMPORDIA
Deep black cherry colour, chocolate, tobacco & leather on the nose, palate – simply wonderful fruit which is deep & promises much for the future but today creates a remarkably satisfying & warming elegance for such a strong gutsy wine – truly a wine to watch!.

This 50/50 syrah/merlot blend is aged in new French barriques to give a massive, vanilla-scented wine with incredibly svelte tannins.
|1311. 2000 Flor de Pingus, RIBERA DEL DUERO
100% organic Pingus is typically aged for 14 months in 100% new French oak barriques, resulting in wines with dark dense colour, intense perfume and a tiered, elegant palate. The wines are all bottled without fining or filtration
|1310. 1998 Gueta-Lupia Tinto Crianza, BODEGAS BORDELĀS GARCIA, PRIORAT
This is an exceptional wine from an estate that deserves serious attention. The wine is superb, combining power and elegance with good spice and great length. Old vines and tiny yields
|1312. 2003 Numanthia, BODEAGA NUMANTHIA, TORO
Beautiful nose of mocha, cherry and spices. Full bodied with silky tannins, dusty mouth feel and flavors of black cherry and cocoa powder lingering throughout the finish. Excellent Temprinillo.
|1314. 1995 Vina Bosconia Gran Reserva, LOPEZ DE HEREDIA, RIOJA
Its nose is persistent, with complex tertiary aromas. Round in the mouth, smooth and elegant with a very long finish
