    2017 Domaine Tempier Bandol Rouge

    $59.00
    Tasting Notes ~ There is something about the dark, inky Mourvèdre, plus the salty sea air caressing the vines every night, that typifies classic Bandol. This wine is complete, and ready to serve cooled down a touch.

  • 2018 Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage

    $37.00
    WA 90 VN 91
    Vinous 91 ~ Dark, shimmering ruby. Fragrant dark berry and floral scents are sharpened by hints of cracked pepper and smoky bacon. Bitter cherry, cassis and dark chocolate flavors show good depth as well as energy and pick up a licorice nuance on the back half. Finishes long and chewy, with youthfully grippy tannins and a lingering suggestion of bitter chocolate. This one will reward a little patience.

  • 2019 Finca Torremilanos ‘Ojo Gallo’ Clarete

    $37.00
    Tasting Notes ~ ‘Ojo Gallo’, Castellano for ‘rooster eye’ (in other words, what the French call ‘oeil de perdrix’), hearkens back to the traditional clarete style of the region. This light red is a field blend of very old vines of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Bobal, Monastrell, Viura, Albillo and Malvasia co-fermented in cement and raised for 8 months in used barrels before bottling without added sulfur for peak drinkability. Aromas of cranberry, wild cherry, scrub herb, and flowers jump from the glass, with a juicy palate offering prickly acidity and a wisp of tannic dryness. Absolutely delicious with a chill, though it can easily be enjoyed closer to room temperature.

  • 2016 Quinta do Portal ‘Colheita’ Tinto

    $23.00
    Tasting Notes ~ Marked by Tinta Roriz that is responsible for the intense aroma of young fresh fruit like cherry and blackberry. Dark in colour, it also shows some spicy notes along with some wood. Well structured in the mouth it has excellent acidity and firm tannins. The final is long, seductive and complex. It's a wine that we can enjoy from now but it will also age a few years very well.

  • 2018 Conreria d’Scala Dei ‘Black Slate Escaladei’

    $25.00
    WA 91
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91 ~ “The 2018 Black Slate Gratallops, a blend of Cariñena, Garnacha and Syrah, is part of the Black Slate series produced for American importer European Cellars. The varieties fermented separately with natural yeasts, and only 20% of the volume was put in oak barrels for 15 months. It has effervescent freshness and a mixture of red and black fruit with just a spicy twist and some peachy character. There is some rusticity on the palate along with earthy tannins, giving it the profile of a classical Priorat.”

    2013 Tenuta di Arceno ‘Arcanum’

    $88.00
    WA 96 JS 91
    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 96 ~ The 2013 Arcanum is a blend of 73% Cabernet Franc with smaller parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet Franc element is obviously strongest, and you get steely notes of black fruit follow by wild sage and rosemary oil. This is a powerful and thickly layered red wine that pushes the boundaries of extract and intensity, especially for a Tuscan red wine. Off the top of my head, I can count maybe ten wines from the region that take on such a full-bodied and opulent approach. This wine should age forward for many years to come.

  • 2017 Opus One

    $433.00
    WS 93 WA 95 JS 95 DC 96
    Decanter 96 ~ A fist of late summer cherries, raspberry and bilberry fruits set out their stall, all with the juicy character that confirms, even in a hot vintage like 2017, Opus can deliver balance and sculpted elegance. Beautiful grip, creamy texture with a strikingly powerful tannic frame. As the wine stays in the glass the floral aromatics begin to bloom up. A brilliant Opus. 20 days maceration - around half what it would have been a decade ago. 54 percent native yeast, as part of their native yeast project. 5 percent Merlot and 1 percent Malbec complete the blend. Harvest spread out over September 5 to October 8, just before the fires, by which time they had less than 10 percent of the fruit still out on the vines. 3.7pH.

Cascading flavors of blackberries, black cherries, cappuccino, and tobacco lead to herbaceous earthiness with undertones of big game and fresh sage and rosemary. This is a dark, deep, brooding and seductive wine that glides over your palate toward a long, elegant finish.

    2018 Bevan Cellars ‘Ontogeny’

    $138.00
    JD 97
    Jeb Dunnick 97 ~ Cassis, black olives, tobacco, chocolate, toasted spice, and graphite notes all emerge from the 2017 Ontogeny, a more rounded, plush, sexy wine that nevertheless packs ample muscle, depth, and richness. It's a beautifully balanced, silky, awesome wine as well as a killer value.

  • 2017 Booker Vineyard ‘My Favorite Neighbor’

    $70.00
    WA 94 JD 96
    Jeb Dunnick 96 ~ The 2017 My Favorite Neighbor is also terrific and I suspect would cost 2-3 times its going rate if it was from Napa Valley. It's also the more elegant, perfumed, red-fruited release compared to the darker fruited Harvey and Harriet release. Classy notes of black raspberries, spice box, white flowers, lead pencil shavings, and tobacco leaf all emerge from the glass of this medium to full-bodied red, which offers a seamless texture, fine tannins, and a great finish. It will be better with 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for over a decade.

It's an elegant version of this cuvée, offering beautiful blueberry, raspberry, crushed violet, graphite, and crushed rock-like minerality. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and balanced, it’s polished and seamless, yet has plenty of tannins as well as richness, and is going to evolve beautifully.

    $124.00
    WS 91 WA 92 JS 93 JD 94 WE 96

Rich, full-bodied, supple and forward, with low acidity and ripe tannin, give bottles 4-5 years (although it dishes out ample pleasure even today) and enjoy through 2037.

    JS 93 DC 90
    Decanter 90 ~ Another Pichon Comtesse estate up in St-Estèphe with a lovely ripe fruit expression. There are some tight, austere tannins right now, and the wine is a little less immediately exuberant than some, but give it a few years in bottle to flesh out. 62% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot.

    $160.00
    WS 94 WA 96 JS 99 VN 93
    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.
