2020 Leon Dormido Rosé, Rioja, Spain: Sourced from a single vineyard of old-vine Grenache grapes grown in the high elevations of Rioja Alta, this micro-production wine (200 cases made) was made by Miguel Merino Jr. While 90% of Rioja red grapes that are grown are Tempranillo, this dry rosé showcases the Grenache varietal in a crisp, lean, refreshing and slightly spicy style.

2019 Clunia Albillo, Burgos, Spain: Made from a very rare and almost extinct varietal, this complex and unique white wine was grown on the Bocigas vineyard at an elevation of 3,300 feet above sea level. The cool climate of this site along with dramatic temperature swings from day to night yielded a wine bursting with freshness and verve with richness gained from fermentation in French oak.

2016 Clos Galena “Gran Crossos,” Priorat, Spain: Organically grown grapes and a micro-production of only 950 cases makes this wine a rare treat to find outside of Priorat. The famous Llicorella soil of Priorat imparts a classic minerality while the warm Spanish sun ripens the fruit to full flavor potential. A blend of 57% Grenache Noir (Garnacha), 34% Carignan and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon barrel fermented and aged for 12 months in French oak.

2016 Clunia “Finca El Rincon de Clunia,” Burgos, Spain: Grown at an elevation of over 3,500 feet above sea level and only produced in great vintage years, this 100% Tempranillo is a truly magnificent expression of the varietal. The cooler climate keeps the wine elegant and polished, yet the powerful flavors and structure of the Tempranillo allow for extended cellaring.

2018 Carmelo Rodero “Pago de Valtarrena”, Ribera Del Duero, Spain: Legendary grower turned vigneron Carmelo Rodero uses his oldest plot of Tempranillo vines to produce this magnificent wine. Beatriz Rodero, oldest daughter of Carmelo, took over winemaking in 2008 and her wines have received worldwide critical acclaim with this wine being her masterpiece. A powerful and intense expression of Tempranillo; truly one of the world’s greatest red wines.

2019 Grand Cru Zotzenberg Riesling, Domaine Haegi, Alsace, France: 100% organic wine made from the precious terroir of the Zotzenberg Grand Cru, this dry Riesling is made by Daniel Haegi with less than 300 cases per year volume. This complex and vibrant white wine is one of the few white wines capable of aging for 20-plus years.

2019 “Le Coeur de Haegi” Pinot Gris, Alsace, France: With only 600 bottles per year produced from some of the oldest Pinot Gris vines in all of Alsace, this 100% organic wine is a gastronomic delight. Richness imparted from French oak and nervy tension from Riesling acidity results in a wine layered with citrus and stone fruit balanced by tart acids.

2018 Clos Saint Sébastien “Inspiration Marine,” Collioure, France: The sun-drenched Mediterranean coast of Southeast France gives us one of the most unique and delicious red wines in all of France. Made from 90% Mourvèdre and 10% Grenache grown on steep cliffs above the sea, the red fruits and delicate spices of the grapes are enhanced by saline minerality from the nearby Mediterranean.

2016 Château Guibeau Grande Réserve, Puisseguin Saint-Emilion, France: This limited production (325 cases), certified organic Grande Reserve is made from the oldest vines on the estate from a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc – a wine to showcase the potential of this very special property. The 2016 vintage was truly spectacular for the Right Bank, with Saint-Emilion receiving a 96-point rating for the entire region.

2018 Le Clos Grande Réserve, Clos Saint Sébastien, Collioure, France: Winemaker Romuald Perrone and Quigley Fine Wines partnered to produce only 600 bottles of this tremendous wine, with the goal to make the finest red wine in all of Collioure. The blend of 70% Syrah, 10% Grenache, 10% Carignan and 10% Mourvèdre all from the oldest vines and best barrel selections of the vintage. A wine for the celebration of life.
