Valkyrie Selections /Golden Barrel

a new supplier who is partnered with a eric solomon long time rep.

Milou Chardonnay 2010.. soft, easy and drinkable.. but really

Milou Rouge 2010 Grenache/Syrah from the south of france. said to be old vine but seemed a little young.. may just be the newness of the bottling. lots of juice but kind of rough..

Bodegas Tempranillo Roble 2010// dark wine, dark dense flavors.. lots of mid palate and some cough drop flavors.. over the top for me

Bodegas Valdesil Montenovo 2011. fruity and floral.. Godello is the grape type.. limited tonage and stainless steel.. very pretty..

Bodegas Valdesil Valdesil 2011... golden yellow and fuller bodied than the other but not sure if the money difference is justified. 

Mercat Cava Brut NV . this spends 2 times longer on the lees before bottling happens. lower sugar dosage.. deeper and more body than most cava.. using traditional cava grapes from spain.
