The Solar de Randez Joven (young wine with no oak) comes from a 15-hectare plot of younger vineyards that grow on a hill with both north and south facing slopes. The ripeness levels that come from the different sides of the hill create amazing depth in this fresh and young wine.  Sitting on calcareous clay soils mixed with sand and rock, the layers displayed in this dense, ink-colored red are fantastically expressive.  After only time in stainless steel, the resulting fruit is ripe, bright, and a deliciously bright wine. The Joven has beautiful aromas of red and black cherries and the palate is impressively structured.

Bodegas las Orcas is a small, family-owned and operated winery in the Rioja Alavesa region of Spain.  All the way back to the year 1900 in the medieval town of Laguardia, the family wines were made in their traditional cellar underneath the town, until the construction of their new bodega happened just outside the town walls in 1999.  Raimundo and his wife Cristina run the winery today and make remarkable Rioja wines using only fruit from their own family vineyards.  The vineyards are tended naturally without the use of artificial fertilizers or pesticides, and the wines are fermented using native yeasts and absolutely minimal filtration (also, all the wines are vegan friendly).  As a result, they make exceptional Rioja that brings together historic practices in the cellar, while also taking advantage of some more modern techniques, all while offering great value for authentically made wine from an area where large production has become a norm.
