Mulva - the Condado de Haza for $20 sounds about right. Excellent wine. If you like it, try El Vinculo - even better.
Although Condado de Haza and El Vinculo are both made by Alejandro Fernandez, El Vinculo is actually from La Mancha.( Ilike it very much) If you like those then try his flagship wine Pesquera. The quality has declined some from its heyday, but the 01 crianza is still a good QPR.
The 2001 Valderiz is a wine from Telmo Rodriguez. He is a very respected wine maker here in Spain. The wine is pretty good. However the price sounds very inflated.
All the prices you quoted are double the price we pay here.
If you can try to find a wine called Aalto. The name of the winery is also Aalto. It is a new winery from the head winemaker of Vega Sicilia.
We can get this wine here for about 23 euros.
