Bodega Y Cavas De Weinert 2000 Gran Vino Red (Luján de Cuyo)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $26

Sharp, spiky and raw to start, with sassy fruit and aromas of smoked meat and polished leather. In the mouth, more identifiable flavors of plum, raspberry and beet take over, and time allows for it to unfold. Finishes sturdy, with perfect tannins and perky acids. Match this with grilled beef and you’re on your way. Sophisticated yet antique. How nice to see an…

Bodegas Aquitania 2013 Albariño (Rías Baixas)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $28

This blends modesty with clarity, and the end result is excellent. Crisp and minerally at all check points, the palate is juicy and citric, but with good body. Citrus, mango, melon and green-fruit flavors drive the palate into a cleansing, finely cut finish.

Bodegas Bilbainas 2010 Viña Pomal Alto de la Caseta Tempranillo (Rioja)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $80

Purple in color and minerally and deep on the nose, this modern-style Rioja deals aromas of wood smoke, blackberry, cassis and more. The palate is big and bulky, but balance is no issue. Toasty blackberry, chocolate and coffee flavors hold onto a toasty, blackened character on a flush, dynamic finish. Drink now through 2022.

With touches of smoke, char, herbs and rooty black-fruit notes, the nose on this blend of 75% Malbec and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon is immensely inviting. Flavors of coffee, baking spices, blackberry, herbs and mocha finish toasty and impressive. Overall, this is a superb Mendoza wine; drink through 2024.

Bodegas Caro 2003 Caro Cabernet Sauvignon-Malbec (Mendoza)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $42

is one way to describe this Cabernet-Malbec blend. The bouquet is full of smoky balsam wood, leather and solid berry fruit, while the palate is both juicy and plentiful as it pushes equal amounts of bold black fruit and warming oak. A very solid Argentinean icon wine with impeccable structure and liveliness. Better in 2008.

Bodegas Caro 2004 Amancaya Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon (Mendoza)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $18

This has to rank as one of the world’s best wines for the money. The depth is impeccable and the balance and pop are commendable. All hail Argentina, or at least Barons de Rothschild and Nicolas Catena for coming up with this affordable blend of Malbec and Cabernet that pulses with berry fruit, waves of chocolate and so much toasty persistence that it almost…

Bodegas Caro 2006 Amancaya Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon (Mendoza)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $19

Amancaya, a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, never fails to impress. This wine is rich and controlled but also alert and upright. It is juicy and succulent, with ripe blackberry and cassis at its base. Finishes tight and long, and sports a fine structure throughout.

Bodegas Dios Baco S.L. NV Cream Sherry (Jerez)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $25

This sweetie is powerful yet smooth, with almond paste and coffee aromas along with a mild sharpness that lends focus. Flavors of chocolate, brown sugar and baked apples burst forth from the thick and creamy palate, while the finish, which runs a little short, is flavorful and comes with a mushroom accent. A sure-fire hit with desserts.
