they are. By law the reservas have to have something like 1 years in barrel+ 2 in bottle before sale. The grand reservas are something like 2+3. and those are just the minimums (some do 5-7 in bottle before sale, which would be 10 years past vintage)
spanish wine in general seems to have some great values. Lopez de heredia, CVNE, La Rioja Alta, etc

Well, the e-mail I just received about the K Vintners Cattle King was too much to handle, I had to take the plunge. I actually know very little about K Vintners, or the Cattle King, but I have done an exorbitant amount of work lately for a cattle rancher (who enjoys wine) that I had to pick up a couple bottles.
Lol, the full pull team does an excellent job selecting great wines for the mailing list. However, you will be broke and homeless with purple teeth if you buy upon every email they send lol. They do a good job of hyping the wines in every single email. That said, you'll probably want to keep some powder dry for the La Rata offering this week. It's a Cayuse side project distributed only to Full Pull members.

If you've not seen the change it's really been nicely flow charted and narrows the varietals down to a handful of highly recognizable typicity grapes. Here's the whites: https://www.mastersommeliers.org/sites/default/files/CERT%20Tasting%20Exam%20Grid%20WHITE-Dec2015.pdf
