    2016 Clos Apalta ‘Le Petit Clos’

    $53.99
    WA 93JS 96
    Wine Advocate 93: The "second wine" here, the 2016 Le Petit Clos is a very different blend from the 2015; it is now mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with just 4% Merlot and 1% Carménère, while last year it was almost half Carménère. The vineyards are now certified in organic and biodynamic agriculture. The bunches were hand-destemmed, and the grapes fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and a six-week maceration. Malolactic was in barrique, and the élevage happened as follows: the wine spent seven months in new French barriques, and then 71% of the volume was transferred to French oak barriques (22% new and 49% second year), while the rest of the wine was put in oak vats. The élevage was 23 months in total. With the change in varieties, this feels very different from the Clos Apalta—more Cabernet here and more Carménère there.
    James Suckling 96: A juicy and delicious second wine from Clos Apalta. Beautiful, ripe and delicious with dark berries and mushrooms. Full-bodied and very balanced with complex walnut, spice and berry character. Dark chocolate and hazelnuts at the finish. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.

    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.

  • 2015 Château Chasse-Spleen

    $56.99
    WS 92JS 94WE 94
    Wine Spectator 92: Enticing, with a tangy iron note to the fresh red currant and bitter cherry fruit flavors, followed by a lingering sanguine edge on the pleasantly dusty finish.
    James Suckling 94: This delivers a stylish impression from the get-go with a really nicely focused dark berry nose and hints of fresh pastry. The palate has a smooth array of bright blackberry and plum fruits with smoothly cut tannins that layer up nice and even. Classy. Best from 2022.
    Wine Enthusiast 94: The pure red-fruit flavors of this wine shoot through the firm tannins to give freshness while allowing plenty of space for the development of the tannins. It is a wine that shows both the fruit and the structure of the vintage.

  • 2017 Quinta do Crasto Douro Tinto

    $22.99
    WA 90
    Wine Advocate 90: The 2017 Tinto, in bottle about four months when first seen, is a blend of Tinta Roriz (30%), Touriga Franca (25%), Touriga Nacional (35%) and Tinta Barroca (10%). About 15% (a deliberate increase from what used to be a nominal 5%) of the blend was aged in second use French oak for six months, the rest in tank. Crasto's idea with the increase in oak going forward is to change the wine's texture a bit and add a bit of gravitas. This has come together really well since last seen, fleshing out, showing a bit more power and (most importantly) vivid flavor. I'm not sure if this will hold serve throughout its useful life, but at the moment, it is worth leaning up on this succulent but fresh Tinto. It comes in at 14% alcohol.

  • 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.

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 Vineyard ‘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

    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.
