WINE #1) Ludovicus Tinto 2013-100% Garnacha-90 Points Robert Parker $13.95, YES...YOU READ CORRECTLY, UNDER $14!!!

"Oliver & Monica have done it again. Another great find & great Value from 
Our Friends at Ole Imports. Please purchase now, product is going fast!!!!!Here is a 
Brief History of our Delicious 100% Garnacha(one of the same grapes used in CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE),organically grown from Terra Alta-Spain."


A Brief History of Terra Alta, Spain:

This mineral, rich, spicy Mediterranean red drinks like a wine two times its price. It is produced from organically grown grapes in the high elevation Terra Alta region. These high lands are located just 45 minutes south of Barcelona in the mountains of Tarragona overlooking the Mediterranean.

Ludovicus pays tribute to the roman heritage of this region. The Romans planted vineyards in this
area during the 3rd century. Terra Alta neighbors the acclaimed Priorat region. Just like in Priorat,
Garnacha and Mazuelo (aka Cariñena, or Samsó) are the most commonly planted grapes. The
Garnachas that grow in Terra Alta are among the finest in Spain due to three factors: the elevation,
the limestone soil and the plethora of old vine that Terra Alta possesses.
 
WHAT MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE?: 
Ludovicus is a wine that appeals to both new world and old world palates. People who like Cab, Syrah, 
Malbec and Zinfandel love Ludovicus. Produced from dry-farmed grapes that are organically grown.


PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: This ripe, juicy, vibrantly big-fruited red wine is a real crowd pleaser, and Ludovicus's easy
drinking nature makes it a versatile wine, either with meat and pork main courses or with more casual tapas or small plates.
Of course, this wine is also a great sipper on its own. Try with Flank Steak-Grilled and topped off with a Pablano-Cilantro Pesto,  
Bring on the rich grilled meats, sausages, PERFECT WITH GAME ...we have been DELICIOUSLY enjoying this gorgeous RED ON A REGULAR BASIS with rich, extremely spicy pork Thai curry (At Thai Dee) , yes IT STANDS UP TO EVERYTHING! Don't take our word for it, Parker AGAIN: "a killer wine...delivers flavor and value in incredible proportions"

Here is what Robert Parker Says about this wine:
90 points Robert Parker Ludovicus Tinto 2013-100% Garnacha from Terra Alta, Spain

"An amazing wine made from 100% Grenache organically farmed. The 2013 Tinto
shows boisterous and exuberant black cherry/kirsch liqueur notes, medium to full body,
terrific purity and exuberance. This is a delicious bistro-style rich fruit bomb that is pure and
succulent. Talk about hedonism!" Drink 2016-2022— Robert Parker
 
These wines are among my favorite from this motivated company. Sensational Values from a Viticulture regions from Espana-Spain." 
-Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.

WINE #2)    Breca Tinto 2013-Aragon-100% Garnacha 91/100  ....AND  RIDICULOUSLY PRICED AT $14.95!!!

"Made from the property's oldest vines, which were planted between 1925 and 1945: Vivid ruby. Sexy, mineral-laced aromas of fresh red berries, candied flowers and Asian spices, with a hint of cola in the background. Super concentrated and seamless, offering intense raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a touch of vanilla. Clings with impressive authority on the finish, which features supple tannins and lingering floral character. This wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks, then went through malolactic fermentation and 21 months of aging in used French oak barriques. Yields here were reportedly less than a ton per acre in this vintage." 91 points VINOUS
 
  Made from 100% OLD VINES GARNACHA, and  aged for 21 months in a combination of used French oak. Malolactic is done in oak, and the result is full-bodied, opaque purple-colored wine with superb richness as well as lots of blackberry, chocolate, vanilla and cassis intermixed with licorice, new saddle leather, pepper and bouquet garni. This nearly viscous red (OVER 15.4% ) should drink beautifully for 7-10 years.

What a STEAL!!! Time to fire up the grill, this rich "monster" IS GOOD with meat, meat and meat! 

 

Only 10 cases at that RIDICULOUS PRICE. $14.95!!! A rich, gorgeous 91 rated Spanish beauty under $15!!!
