2006 Yasa Macabeo Old Vines Calatayud

($12) Pale yellow. Spicy yellow plum and pear aromas are brightened by zesty minerals and quinine. Sweet pear and white peach flavors are perked up by spicy white pepper. Refreshing, precise and easy to drink; this has striking complexity and depth for the price.

2005 Yasa Garnacha Old Vines Calatayud

($9) Dark red. Fresh raspberry, strawberry and candied plum aromas display good energy and clarity. Tangy, youthful red fruit flavors are brightened by zesty mineral and citrus zest accents, giving this light-bodied wine very good cut. Brisk and clean on the persistent finish. (Kysela Pere et Fils, Winchester, VA)
