90 • Lagar de Pintos 2011 Albariño, DO Rias Baixas $24.99.
Big tears, straw robe with an emerald cast. Toasted brewers yeast notes lead with a delicate spiced ripe peach back note. Creamy toasty attack and tangy Meyer lemon and mineral flavors linger. Very classy. (tasted on Mar-04-2013)
89 • Martín Códax 2011 Albariño, DO Rias Baixas $15. Best Buy.
Enticing nose of ripe peaches, apple sauce and a hint of the ocean. Rich entry and nice cleansing blood orange and Meyer lemon notes. A hint of nectarine then a bone dry finish. (tasted on Mar-04-2013)
87 • Castiñeira 2011 Albariño, DO Rias Baixas $16.99.|Find-a-Wine|
Aromas of nectarines, tangerines and a soft key lime cream scent. Rich entry with a grippy taut dry finish. A nice shellfish wine. (tasted on Mar-04-2013)
