2013 Casa Castillo "El Molar" Garnacha Jumilla Top Pick!
2013 Casa Castillo "El Molar" Garnacha Jumilla

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new kid on the block, the pure Garnacha 2013 El Molar carries the name of the vineyards where the vines were planted in 2006 on sand and chalk soils covered with gravel. It was foot trodden and fermented in cement vats and aged for nine months in used 500-liter oak barrels. In 2013 the vines worked until the very end as it was a year where there was more rain than average and a relatively cool summer (sometimes ripening occurs because of dehydration rather than true ripening) resulting in a perfect ripeness but quite contained. It is light ruby color, ...Read More »

2014 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

In the region of Cariñena, the Garnacha grape variety finds a lovely expression, one which is less high octane and lighter on its feet than in some of the neighboring regions. This easy drinker is a terrific bargain for anyone looking for a house red or a wine for a celebration.

2013 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra Terra Alta

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(raised entirely in concrete): Brilliant ruby. Pure, high-pitched aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, blood orange and fresh rose, plus a bright mineral overtone. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering sappy red fruit and floral pastille flavors lifted by spice and mineral nuances. Closes spicy, nervy and long, with silky tannins making a late appearance. Finding a wine with this much clarity and precision is a tough job at double and even triple the price of this one.

2012 Bodegas Palacios Remondo "La Montesa" Crianza Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2012 was one of the driest and warmest years on record (the third driest August since 1961, the fourth warmest since 1961). The 2012 Rioja Crianza la Montesa is a blend of 80% Garnacha, 15% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo (Cariñena) from grapes grown in the La Montesa estate in Alfaro, Rioja Baja where the red Garnacha reigns over Tempranillo. The wine is getting lighter and more ethereal, but this ripe 2012 has a heady nose of cherries in liqueur but also black and sour cherries, unnoticeable oak plus just a pinch of dark spices.

Vivid crimson; vibrant acidity gives this complex wine the characteristics of a white wine with a formidable finish." K&L Notes: A beautiful dry, fresh, rose of Grenache.

2012 Cornet et Cie "La Cave de l'Abbe Rous" Banyuls Rimage (500ml)

This intense, ruby-colored wine is from the extreme south of France, where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean and the vines grown on steep, schistous terraces. Rimage is a Catalan word which means vintage. Therefore a Rimage Banyuls is a fortified wine in which all grapes come from a certain vintage, much like a Colheita or vintage Port. Made from Grenache Noir, the wine's bouquet is full of ripe, red fruits with tinges of vanilla spice. On the palate, flavors of chocolate and cherry dominate and the finish is long and elegant.

2014 Cirillo "The Vincent" Old Vine Grenache (Previously $30)

Marco Cirillo has some of the oldest Grenache vines on earth. "The Vincent" is selected from an 80 year old block that are actually masale selection cuttings taken from his 1860 block of vines...so at 80 years of age these are relatively youthful! A lovely pure, lifted wine that encapsulates all the qualities I admire about this enchanting variety; exotic red fruits, spices, bramble fruit, a scorched earth note...amazing energy and drive on the palate. Really a steal given the pedigree and vine age. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Aussie Wine buyer)

2012 Château Coupe Roses "Granaxa" Minervois

Granaxa is one of two luxury cuvees from Coupe Roses, a leading domaine in the high Minervois. Granaxa, a.k.a. Grenache, takes its name from southern France's ancient dialect. This savory wine was made in older barrels with a dollop of Syrah and has stunningly pure red fruit flavors of Grenache with a rich, mouthfilling texture. Francoise Le Calvez was the first modern producer to make wine in barrel in Minervois, home to some of Frances' finest values.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The current release of the estate vineyard (a.k.a. the extended barrel-aged cuvee), the 2010 Grenache Stockholm Syndrome is an incredible effort that I couldn’t find a fault with. A blend of 75% Grenache, 22% Syrah, 2% Roussanne and 1% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confession Vineyard, it spent just under 30 months in 22% new and 78% used French oak prior to bottling.

Of the 2012 Booker "Fracture" Paso Robles Syrah,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "There are roughly 293 cases of the 2012 Fracture to go around, and it checks in as a blend of 100% Syrah that was aged 18 months in French oak. A big, rich and decadent effort, it’s another spectacular effort from this estate that does everything right. Creme de cassis, chocolate, spice-box, graphite and ground pepper all come together beautifully here, and this beauty has a forward, supple and full-bodied style that’s hard to resist. More elegant and open than past vintages, I’d drink bottles over the coming 4-5 years, but it will evolve for longer. (JD)" (08/2014)

2006 Melis "Elix" Priorat

About the wine: "Elix, will bring to the pleasure to the unique flavor of the small and exclusive region of Priorat. In addition to a vineyard sorting, clusters were hand-sorted in the winery, gently destemmed and crushed directly to two ton stainless open-top tanks and 600L barrels for fermentation. Jack-stems were removed by hand. Most lots were cold soaked for two days. Fermentations were started slowly, with punchdowns by hand occurring one to two times a day; macerations lasted from 10 to 21 days, depending on the individual lot. At the completion o...

2010 Cave de Rasteau "Signature" Rasteau Vin Doux Naturel (500ml)

If you're looking for a dessert wine to pair with something chocolate, there's nothing like a glass of Vin Doux Naturel. This traditional wine from the Southern Rhône is made entirely from fortified Grenache Noir. Cave de Rasteau's version is made from 50- to 90-year-old vines with a maximum yield of 30hl/hc--less than a bottle of wine per vine, according to the winery. Rich and powerful, with mellow sweetness, it makes the end of a meal a decadent treat.

2007 Sine Qua Non "Pictures" Grenache

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 87% Grenache, 11.5% Syrah, and 1.5% Viognier, this wine has wonderful floral notes intermixed with black raspberries, black cherries, licorice, graphite and some camphor. In the mouth, more white chocolate notes appear, along with meatiness and some silky tannins. Its great purity, density and richness make me think this wine could even improve a few points and flirt with perfection. (RP)" (8/2011) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright ruby. Wild aromas of black raspberry compote, mocha, Asian spices and incense. Expansive and deeply concentrated, with obvious sweetness ...Read More »
