  • 2018 Alvarao Palacios Camins del Priorat

    $32.00
    WA 91JS 94
    Wine Advocate 91: The regional red blend 2018 Camins del Priorat was produced with grapes from 101 plots from eight villages in Priorat and wants to represent the overall character of the zone. It's a blend of 35% Garnacha, 20% Cariñena, 20% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot that fermented in a combination of stainless steel and oak vats and matured in barrique and oak vats for four to six months. It's young and fruit-driven with some herbal hints from the French grapes, which were picked early, intermixed with licorice and fennel. It's nicely textured, happy and fresh, juicy, clean and with no noticeable oak. It has a modern and clean profile. The tannins are soft and round. It's like a more concentrated version of 2016 and 2014, both cool years. Easy to drink and very pleasant. 236,000 bottles produced.
    James Suckling 94: A layered and very dense Priorat with crushed-raspberry and slate character, as well as black tea. Full body. Ripe yet tight tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Drink now or hold.

  • 2012 Bernardus ‘Marinus’

    $64.99
    WE 92
    Wine Enthusiast 92: One of the winery's most celebrated releases each year, this blend of all five major Bordeaux red varieties is an excellent showcase of Carmel Valley's class. Freshly squeezed blackberry and blackcurrant fruit meet with beef char, charcoal and dried lilacs on the nose. The palate tastes of lava rocks, dark chocolate, fresh boysenberries, dried mint and beef jerky, all woven together with a touch of smoke. Editors' Choice.

    $25.00
    WE 93
    Wine Enthusiast 93: Randall Grahm’s ever-evolving ideology shifted again for the new label and blend of this bottling, which includes 52% Grenache, 35% Cinsault and 13% Syrah. Aromas of plum, cracked pepper, crumpled carnations and dried mint lead into a bright, refreshing palate of hibiscus, anise and a curry-like spice.

  • 2017 Ridge ‘Three Valleys’

    $28.00
    WS 91WA 91
    Wine Spectator 91: Lively and well-built, with expressive cherry, roasted dill and white pepper flavors that glide toward refined tannins. Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane and Grenache.
    Wine Advocate 91: The Three Valleys is Ridge's general Sonoma County blend, made with fruit from ten different old-vine Zinfandel vineyards throughout Sonoma. The 2017 is comprised of 73% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 10% Carignane and 2% Grenache, aged 11 months in 5% new American oak. The 2017 Three Valleys has a medium ruby color with scents of warm apricots and baked peaches, red cherries, blueberries, crushed stone and oodles of floral perfume. The medium-bodied palate offers concentrated, tricolored fruits with juicy acidity and grainy tannins, finishing long and perfumed.

    Wine Spectator 91: This red is dense yet plush, with blackberry and espresso flavors, accented by licorice, wild herb and mineral notes. Well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity keep this focused. Harmonious, in a savory style. Garnacha, Merlot, Cariñena, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

  • 2016 Maison Brotte ‘Secret Barville’ Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    $62.00
    WS 93WE 95
    Wine Spectator 93: Lush and rustic, offering raspberry, plum and cherry preserve flavors that cruise through slowly, with light sandalwood, garrigue and brick dust accents filling in on the finish. Reveals a pleasant tug of earth. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2022 through 2035.
    Wine Enthusiast 95: Firm, sandpapery tannins frame this rich, undulating blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Studded with glossy blueberry and preserved black-cherry flavors, it's an intense, brooding wine shaded by hints of crushed earth and coffee grinds. It drinks beautifully already, but should mature elegantly through 2035.

  • 2014 Cave des Vignerons Jean de Roze Vin de Pays d’Hérault

    $13.00

  • 2015 Casa Castillo ‘Las Gravas’

    $29.99
    WA 94
    Wine Advocate 94: The 2015 Las Gravas is a classic Mediterranean blend of Monastrell with 15% each Garnacha and Syrah, with 15% alcohol after fermenting with part of full clusters and indigenous grapes and aging in used oak barrels for 19 months. 2015 is the last vintage that Las Gravas has some Syrah, as it adds some sweet fruit he wants to avoid. However, it shows fresh within the balsamic profile, with plenty of rosemary and thyme notes combined with floral undertones and the character of the esparto grass and tree bark that are textbook descriptors of the variety.

  • 2016 Blackbird Vineyards ‘Paramour’ (1.5L)

    $305.00
    WA 94
    Wine Advocate 94: Composed of 82% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Paramour Proprietary Red is deep garnet-purple colored and features notes of tar, tilled black soil, fungi and oolong tea over a core of red and black currants, black raspberries and crushed plums. Medium-bodied with a chewy, stewed tea-laced frame, it delivers loads of bright, refreshing flavors and a quiet, earthy intensity on the finish.

  • 2016 Clos Apalta

    $159.99
    WS 94WA 96JS 99VN 93
    Wine Spectator 94: Refined, with savory richness to the mineral-infused raspberry, red currant and herbal shadings. Creamy hints emerge midpalate, leading to a crisp, well-structured finish that lingers with slate and cast iron notes. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
    Wine Advocate 96: The 2016 Clos Apalta is a blend of 64% Carménère (higher than in 2015), 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot hitting the scale at 15% alcohol with a pH of 3.7. The Carménère and Cabernet were planted ungrafted in 1920, and all the vineyards are organic and biodynamic (certified) and very low yielding. The hand-destemmed grapes fermented in oak vats and barriques (17%), and the wine went through malolactic and 26 months of aging in brand new French barriques. I've seen a great improvement in Carménère in Chile in the last few years, perhaps since they stopped wanting to grow it everywhere and focused on the places where it grows well, like the Apalta region. They have also learned to tame the green aromas and fierce tannins and alcohol and to produce much more harmonious reds, like this aromatic example that reveals spice, tobacco leaves, red fruit and floral notes without noticeable alcohol or excess ripeness.
    James Suckling 99: This is really focused and refined with fantastic dried flowers and dark berries. Dried-lavender and mint undertones. Medium-to full-bodied with refined and polished tannins that are all together and so focused. Really integrated and melted together on the palate. Compact and very linear. Please give this two or three years to come completely together, but it’s already breathtaking. Better to drink after 2022.
    Vinous 93: A few mature wines still survive from the period that Michel Rolland spent in Chile, including Clos Apalta (a blend of 64% Carménère, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot), demonstrating both the effectiveness and richness of the style. Taking an approach that suits the terroir of Apalta in Colchagua, this garnet-hued red offers ripe aromas of jam, camphor and bay leaf that guide the hints of blackberry and an elegant woodiness that encompasses notes of sandalwood and tobacco. A complex wine that reflects its oxidative aging process; after a while, black olives, musk and hazelnuts appear. It is rich on the palate with fine tannins and slightly intense woody notes. A long, mature, open and flavorsome finish.

  • 2017 Tablas Creek ‘Esprit de Tablas’

    $70.99
    WS 93WA 94WE 94VN 94
    Wine Spectator 93: Personality meets refinement, with expressive black raspberry, smoky garrigue and stony white pepper notes that build richness and complexity toward polished tannins. Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah and Counoise. Drink now through 2027.
    Wine Advocate 94: A barrel sample, the 2017 Esprit de Tablas is made up of 40% Mourvèdre, 35% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Counoise. It's pale to medium ruby with aromas of spiced cranberry sauce, red cherry preserves, warm blackberries, orange peel, blueberries and tree bark with accents of bitter chocolate, dusty earth and garrigue plus gobs of juicy red berry notions. It's light to medium-bodied with great intensity, juicy acidity, grainy tannins and a very long finish. This has great potential!
    Wine Enthusiast 94: A plum aroma meshes into cola, rose and hibiscus tones on the nose of this blend of 40% Mourvèdre, 35% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Counoise. The tense palate delivers engaging flavors of purple flowers and elderberry as black pepper and bright acidity pumps into the finish. Drink now–2032.
    Vinous 94: Glistening ruby. Pungent black and blue fruit, potpourri and incense aromas show outstanding clarity and pick up exotic spice and mineral nuances as the wine opens up. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering bitter cherry, black raspberry, violet pastille and spice cake flavors that deepen on the back half. Finishes very long and precise, with mounting tannins and an emphatic echo of candied flowers.

  • 2012 Amuse Bouche

    $326.99
    WA 90JS 92
    Wine Advocate 90: The 2012 Proprietary Red Amuse Bouche offers juicy blue and red fruits along with surprisingly noticeable acidity, good cleanliness and purity, and a style that falls somewhere between a French Bordeaux and a Napa red wine. Although still youthful, it displays a potential for plenty of aromatic complexity, medium to full body, and savory flavors. The wine has yet to reveal its considerable potential, so give it several more years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10-15 years.
    James Suckling 92: Aromas and flavors of walnuts, balsamic vinegar and dried fruits that follow through to a full body, round and juicy tannins and a savory finish. Some orange-peel undertones. Needs a couple of years to come together.

    $169.99
    WA 97
    Wine Advocate 97: A barrel sample blended from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the very deep purple-black colored 2016 Dancing Hares Proprietary Red offers up black currant cordial, warm plums, black berry preserves and chocolate box notes with wafts of red fruit, dusty earth and herbs. Very firm in the medium to full-bodied mouth with very fine tannins, it's very pure and pretty, finishing long and lively.
