2015 Domaine Lafage "Bastide Miraflors" Côtes du Roussillon Back In Stock!
2015 Domaine Lafage "Bastide Miraflors" Côtes du Roussillon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is almost too good to be true. A blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks (Grenache) and demi-muids (Syrah), the 2015 Bastide Miraflors Vieilles Vignes reminded me of a mini Syrah from California's Manfred Krankl (yes I just compared a $14 Syrah to Sine Qua Non). It's a ripe, sexy, heady beauty that exhibits a deep, purple color as well as killer notes of smoked meats, chocolate, blackberry and black raspberries. Deep, unctuous, open knit and layered, it continues to change in the glass, has a seamless and silky ...Read More »

2013 Leeuwin "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $55)

97 points Bob Campbell: "Deep red/purple: an outstanding color in depth and hue. The bouquet is clean, fresh and alive, with bright black fruit and violet aromas, touches of cedar and toasty oak, the palate very deep and concentrated, with lush fruit and abundant tannins, which counter-balance the fruit and sweetness. A powerful yet elegant cabernet with a very long and distinguished future ahead of it. An outstanding, profound wine.

2016 Domaine des Côtes Blanches Sancerre

90 points Wine Spectator: "A tangy, herb-infused version, with lots of thyme and chive notes and hints of asparagus and fleur de sel. Offers a brisk, bony finish. (JM)" (7/2017) K&L Notes: Domaine Côtes Blanches was first established back in the 1930s by Bernard & Pierre Millet. In 1980 it was time for the second generation to take the reins, so François & Monique expanded the estate to 21 hectares of vines (15 Sauvignon, 6 Pinot Noir). After returning from his studies in Beaune five years ago, Nicolas (son of François & Monique) joined the family-run estate and brought a new energized passion... Read More »

92-94 points Vinous: "Building off the considerable success of their 2009 Beaune 150th Anniversary 1er Cru, Jadot has decided to make the wine again in top years. One of the highlights in this range, the 2012 boasts stunning power, depth and harmony. The lifted aromatics recall the Ursules, but here the fruit possesses more volume and creaminess.

Full-flavored, juicy and full of minerals, this is a gorgeously pure and elegant but also sensual and stimulating Muscadet in perfect balance.

This is coiled tight compared to the 2012, but has fabulous upside potential. Forget it for another 3-4 years and drink it over the following 25-30 years.

What incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, licorice, plums. Graphite too. Subtle and complex. Full and silky with a beautiful texture of fine tannins and an ultra-fine finish. So beautiful now but will be much better in 2015. Owner Niccolo Incisa della Rocchetta says that Sassicaia is always great in years that end with eight: 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008."

As is often the case with Insignia bottlings, it is so beautifully balanced that it invites early drinking, and, while we do not condemn giving in to its charms, we also would lobby strongly for patience as its best years lie down the line. ...Read More »

Year in and year out this cuvee is an incredible value and a no brainer that readers need to buy.

Fruit flavors of black, brandied cherries, cassis and bourbon-soaked plums are wrapped in generous, layered oak.

2013 Carlisle "Rossi Ranch" Sonoma Valley Grenache

92-94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Grenache Rossi Ranch is one of the many highlights in this extensive range. High-toned aromatics meld into a core of sweet red berries in a pliant, super-expressive Grenache with Zinfandel-like leanings in its slightly elevated alcohol. The 2013 was co-fermented with 9% Mourvedre (done with stems). In 2013, Mike Officer did not bottle his Rhône blend Three Birds; most of that fruit went into this bottling. (AG)" (1/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A lovely example of what Grenache can do in California. Aromas of rose petal, Asian spice and fresh raspberry lead to elegantly ...Read More »

2012 Bedrock Wine Company North Coast Syrah New!
2012 Bedrock Wine Company North Coast Syrah

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Syrah North Coast is a multi-appellation blend from five separate vineyards that utilized 40% stems and 15% new French oak. It is a delicious, sexy, up-front Syrah meant for near-term consumption. With impressive levels of blackberry and acacia flower notes intermixed with licorice and charcoal, this wine should drink well for 5-7 years. (RP)" (12/2013) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright purple. Red and dark berry liqueur, potpourri and fruitcake scents show good clarity and lift. Juicy, spice-accented blackberry and blueberry flavors pick up notes of cracked pepper and ol ...Read More »

2004 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Wine Spectator: "Thoroughly primal, with a torrent of raspberry and boysenberry fruit rushing forth. Only shows hints of its full range, with licorice, incense, graphite and mocha flavors fluttering in the background. Has an iron-clad structure, with a long finish that shows great cut and grip.

2015 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape

92-94 points Vinous: "fermented in concrete vats and aged in a combination of concrete tanks and wood casks) Ruby-red. Energetic, mineral-accented aromas of ripe red and dark berries, complicated by suggestions of incense and pungent flowers. Broad and fleshy on entry, then more taut in the midpalate, offering pliant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a suggestion of five-spice powder. Finishes very long and sweet, featuring slow-building tannins, a touch of smokiness and repeating red fruit character. This wine is shaping up to be an outstanding "basic" Châteauneu ...Read More »

2015 Rosi Schuster "Aus Den Dorfen" Gruner Veltliner Burgenland

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Hannes Schuster's 2015 Aus den Dörfern is a spectacular white wine made from 80% Grüner Veltliner and 20% diverse varieties planted not exactly as a field blend, but row by row which were all picked separately. One-third of the wine (from the Grüner Veltliner) has seen new oak, the rest was raised inox. The result is super-clear and precise on the nose and reveals a great purity and finesse on the palate. The finish has a lovely grip and reveals a lingering salinity and great tension. This is a gorgeous, medium-bodied and terroir-driven wine from gneiss ...Read More »

2011 Carlisle "Carlisle Vineyard" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard is plush, rich and inviting. All sorts of black fruits, smoke, tar and graphite flesh out in this supple, deeply expressive wine. In 2011 the Carlisle is notable for its lush, rich, totally inviting personality. At the same time, it has fabulous detail and nuance for such a big, explosive wine. The tannins remain firm, but there is more than enough density in the fruit to provide balance. (AG)" (4/2013) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky purple.

It’s aged 20 months in 100% new Darnajou barrels. The good news is there are 520 cases of it. Just a prodigious wine, this spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon is inky bluish/purple with a gorgeous nose of spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, a touch of background toast and graphite. It has a very full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel and a skyscraper-like finish. It is fabulously open, sexy ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Arlaud Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru (Previously $260)

92-95 points Vinous: "Healthy bright medium red. Totally different on the nose than the rest of the 2014s, offering aromas of musky red fruits, wild herbs and vegetable matter plus a touch of ripe-year prune without any impression of heat. Densely packed and seamless but a bit unforthcoming. The thick blueberry and blackberry fruit flavors boast terrific concentration but will need years to develop complexity. Finishes with big tongue-dusting tannins and superb palate-saturating length.

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another Russian River Valley release, the 768-case 2014 Pinot Noir Giusti Vineyard comes from river rock-laced soils that include lots of iron oxide. Almost completely destemmed, it was aged 16% in concrete and 32% in new French oak. This full-bodied, rich, unctuous and big boned beauty knocks it out of the park with its plum, violets, blackberry and ground herb-like aromas and flavors. It's not for those craving lightweight aromas and flavors, but is perfectly balanced, has ripe tannin, and a big mid-palate, all suggesting it will evolve gracefully. (JD ...Read More »
