  • 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.

    Jeb Dunnick 95 ~ Lots of dark fruits, scorched earth, tobacco, and some Pauillac-like lead pencil notes emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is 100% varietal from a great vineyard in St. Helena. With medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and impressive balance, this savory, meaty Cabernet is going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and drink beautifully for 15-20 years or more.

  • 2018 Foradori Teroldego

    $37.00
    VN 91
    Vinous 91 ~ The Foradori Teroldego always makes for a wonderful introduction to the brand. In fact, it was a vertical tasting of the Teroldego, a wine created in a fresh style from younger vines, yet still noble and age-worthy, that first won my heart - not the top-shelf Granato. The 2018 is no different. Here I’m finding a display of wild berry, fresh peppery herbs, violets, and crushed stone. It’s silky in texture, complemented by cool-toned red fruits and minerals, with just a hint of round tannin that provides grip. Inner florals resonate, while residual acids pinch at the taste buds. This is perfectly balanced, wonderfully pleasing today yet able to mature over the medium term in a cold cellar.

    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.

    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 98 ~ Drawing its fruit from Castiglione Falletto, the Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Bric dël Fiasc shows dimension, depth, precision and power. The wine opens to a dark garnet color with a saturated hue, leading to a full, all-encompassing bouquet. The Barolo Bric dël Fiasc is often the most representative wine in the Scavino portfolio, and never has this been more true than in this classic vintage. Dark fruit, licorice, spice and ferrous earth build a fluid and multifaceted bouquet. The mouthfeel sits firm and tight on the palate today, promising to evolve and soften tomorrow. This is a bottle for your cellar.

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.

There is fine richness to the textured and unusually refined middle weight plus flavors that also possess evident muscularity on the stony, intense and beautifully complex finish. Excellent quality here and this is a classic Corton that should age effortlessly for years to come.

    2017 Domaine Méo-Camuzet ‘Grand Maupertuis’ Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru

    Tasting Notes ~ There is a bit more overall oak influence to the cooler and more restrained combination of red and dark berries with similar floral and earth nuances. The bigger difference lies in the tighter and denser medium weight plus flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the beautifully textured, more complex, more structured and more austere finale.

It’s full bodied and rich but briskly balanced too, with a palate streaked with char, vanilla and spice. A gorgeously brooding expression of Côte-Rôtie, it finishes on fine, firm tannins. Beautiful already the wine will reveal greater perfume and complexity through 2035 and hold further still.

On the palate, it's medium-bodied, bright and intense, with chalky structuring tannins, lovely tangy acidity and a long, perfumed finish.

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.

    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 96 ~ The E Pira-Chiara Boschis 2016 Barolo Mosconi is a little wider and richer compared to the Cannubi, with bigger fruit, more sweetness, spice, grilled oregano and a touch of crushed hazelnut. Despite the wide net of aromas offered on the bouquet, this wine shows a very sharp and focused approach with elegantly linear tannins and matching acidity. There is a lifted quality to both the nose and the mouthfeel that gives this wine beautiful momentum and length. Mosconi is one of the headline vineyards of Monforte d'Alba. This is a gorgeous set of new releases from one of the nicest and most determined women in Barolo, Chiara Boschis. I may have missed it last year, but I am happy to see that her name is now featured prominently on the front label. Like the woman who created them, these wines are full of energy, elegance and voice.

Despite showing ample power and richness, it has a vivid spine of acidity, ripe, present tannins, and a great finish, all pointing to a solid decade or more of prime drinking.

This adds a greater sense of focus and delineation that not only characterizes the bouquet but also applies to the way the wine hits the palate in a fuller and more determined way (compared to the slightly softer classic Brunello). Instead, this single-vineyard Brunello shows an upright and direct approach with soft salinity on the close followed by forest fruit, spice and medicinal herb. The mouthfeel makes a big impact thanks to its streamlined and polished texture.

To make a long story short, 2018 seems to be the finest Gredos vintage in the last few years, and that's quite evident in the Bernabeleva range, especially when tasted next to the 2017s. But there is no lack of ripeness here; the grapes ripened properly, and the wine has deep aromas and flavors, fine-grained tannins and some seriousness within its approachable style. A great vintage for Camino de Navaherreros.

    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 97 ~ The 2013 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata Riserva was released in January of 2019, and once again it looks to be a top prize. Licorice and flowers dominate the bouquet, and its beautiful red fruit is generous throughout. This wine has always been a beauty and consistently has had a high price tag to reflect that quality, going back to the first vintages of the 1990s. It has regularly sold for about $200 every year for the last decade. These vines are old, some of them very old (reaching the ripe age of 60 years old in 1990s, when many of them were replanted with carefully selected clones), producing an elegance and concentration that brings intensity and a high standard of aromas. This Barolo without a doubt shows its pedigree and a quality of noble perfumes that demonstrate characteristics of the greatest Nebbiolo vintages, all delivered with excellent concentration. The magic lingers on the palate, right up to the finish.

The palate has a very plush and smoothly rendered feel with a long, smooth and seamless run of ripe blueberries and cherries. Concentrated and elegant pinot with a long, long finish. Drink across the next decade.

  • 2018 Dufaitre Brouilly

  • 2016 Nicolas Chemarin ‘MC2’ Morgon

    $42.00
    Tasting Notes ~ This 2016 Morgon MC2 comes from 40 year old vines - two sources Charmes and Corcelette - planted on sand and schist with a subsoil of decomposed rock and clay. Whole cluster fermentation lasts for 20 days in concrete and 40 percent of the cuvée is matured in neutral oak for 10 months, resulting in a dark, mineral driven and longlived style of Beaujolais perfect for pairing with game birds and hearty grains.

  • 2017 Black Sheep Finds ‘The Joy Fantastic’ Pinot Noir

    $56.00
    JD 93 WE 95
    Wine Enthusiast 95 ~ Subdued red-fruit aromas meet with a slightly gamy and funky kick of sizzling pork skin on the nose of this bottling, one of the first releases from Peter Hunken and Amy Christine's estate vineyard. Rhubarb and black-raspberry flavors pair with thyme, roasting herbs and a touch of game on the palate, framed by plush acidity and subtle tannins.

  • 2017 Tablas Creek ‘Esprit de Tablas’

    $71.00
    WS 93 WA 94 WE 94 VN 94
    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.

  • 2014 Wayfarer ‘Golden Mean’ Pinot Noir

    $120.00
    WA 94 WE 97
    Wine Enthusiast 97 ~ Dark, brooding cinnamon and fleshy black plum provide an exciting, complex counterpoint to the rakish earthiness and exotic Asian spice going on in this full-bodied, explosively compelling wine, its minerality lingering. It's young and still tightly coiled, with lingering minerality; let it open to enjoy now, but it would show best after some time, so cellar through 2024. Cellar Selection

    $93.00
    WA 92 JS 95 WE 95
    Wine Enthusiast 95 ~ Lush and velvety, this wine offers big, dark cherry flavor around a tangy minerality. From three vineyard blocks planted to Pommard and Swan clones, it balances opposites in the way full-bodied luxuriousness meets acidity-driven juiciness, creating a desire for more. Let this wine open in the glass or cellar through 2023. Cellar Selection

Full-bodied, opulent and possessing a myriad of floral and spicy sparks in the black-fruited mouth, it has a beautiful plush texture and wonderful freshness, finishing very long.
