90 points James Suckling: "Fresh spicy nose with coffee, red plums and cranberry. Some vanilla, nutmeg and white pepper. Crushed chalk behind the fruit. Vibrant and juicy red fruit on the palate with ripe tannins and good length. Medium-full body." (3/2013) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting.

2015 D'Arce, Côtes de Castillon

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Château d'Arce is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and it was picked earlier than usual, at the end of September, in order to preserve the Merlot aromas. No SO2 was used apart from two grams just after the malolactic, using CO2 to preserve the wine. It has a plush cranberry, black cherry and licorice scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, caressing in the mouth, hints of cedar and bay leaf, gentle and elegant with a sustained, light grip on the finish. This is very fine and elegant.

This has the balance and structure for quite long aging. A solid wine. Give it two or three years."

Enjoy best 2020 through 2024. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (6/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Shafer also makes one of the better Merlots.

This full-bodied, expansive, super concentrated 2015 is a hedonistic dream and has exceptional purity, balance, and equilibrium.

2014 Sansonnet, St-Emilion (Previously $35)

94 points Vinous: "One of the real surprises of the vintage, the 2014 Sansonnet has turned out beautifully. Specifically, the firm tannins and notable oakiness have integrated very nicely. A rush of black cherry, plum, chocolate and leather give the wine its bombastic, flamboyant personality. Large and ample to its core, the 2014 is seriously opulent and extracted, and yet all the elements are fused together beautifully. The 2014 will appeal most to readers who enjoy the bolder side of St-Émilion. I tasted the 2014 twice and it was equally impressive on both occasions. Con ...Read More »

2015 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Vinous: "A spectacularly rich, hedonistic wine, the 2015 Beau-Séjour-Bécot exudes richness and intensity, with silky, polished tannins that wrap around a huge core of fruit. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and violet notes flesh out as this voluptuous, modern St.-Émilion shows off its distinctive personality. The 2015 is 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon partially fermented in barrel. All the elements are simply in the right place. Tasted two times.

2014 Fombrauge, St-Emilion

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Fombrauge is dark, sensual and inviting. Plum, black cherry, smoke, tobacco and cedar are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. Sumptuous and racy, the 2014 exudes finesse and nuance, but with plenty of the Magrez signature richness. Stylistically, the Fombrauge is a bit more finessed than the Magrez-Fombrauge, which is not a bad thing, as these wines are born with so much natural richness. Tasted three times. (AG)" (2/2017) 92 points James Suckling: "Intense aromas of blueberries, blackberries and flowers follow through to a full to medium body, tight and che ...Read More »

2014 Shafer Napa Valley Merlot (375ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tart black cherry meets plum, strawberry and clove, while softened tannins belie the wine’s overall density and sense of generosity. A smoky waft of cigar amplifies the power and sinewy nature of the fullbodied wine, which is ready to lie down for a rest. Enjoy best 2020 through 2024. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (6/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Shafer also makes one of the better Merlots. The 2014 Merlot includes 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and is a beauty. Mocha and chocolaty notes intermixed with red cherry, plum and blacker fruits jump from the glass of this perfumed and fragrant styl ...Read More »

2016 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96-99 points Vinous: "A wine of total finesse, the 2016 Pavie Macquin is also one of the most riveting wines of the vintage. Silky and supple on the palate, with no hard edges and exceptional balance, it takes over all the senses and never lets up. The flavors are bright, precise and beautifully nuanced. Above all else, Pavie Macquin is a wine of elegance, and that is exactly what comes through in the 2016. The wine plays in the dimensions of bright, floral-infused, red-toned fruits, silky tannins and length more than pure power or breadth. The 2016 is a stunningly beautiful ...Read More »

2014 La Gaffelière, St-Emilion

96 points Vinous: "A wine of total finesse, the 2014 La Gaffelière is gorgeous. Dark and pliant on the palate, with striking nuance, it presents a striking interplay of juicy Merlot fruit and lifted, Cabernet Franc-inflected aromatics. Silky tannins add to the wine's exceptional feel and precision. The blend is 80 % Merlot and 20 % Cabernet Franc. The 2014 spent 25-30 days on the skins, while malolactic fermentation took place partly in tank and partly in barrique. Consulting oenologists Stéphane Derenoncourt and Simon Blanchard did a fabulous job with the 2014. In a word: ...Read More »

2015 Petit Figeac, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

(4/2016) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is aromatic, with fine acidity and dusty tannins that are ripe and almost approachable. It is a generous, open wine with plenty of bright fruits and blackberry flavors. The acidity is what lifts the wine at the end." 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Petit Figeac is a blend of 32% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, representing around one-third of the production.

2014 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion

97 points Vinous: "A stunning, breathtaking wine, the 2014 Clos Fourtet is without question one of the stars of the vintage. Deep yet also wonderfully nuanced, it exudes energy and transparency. Enticing scents of violet, lavender, mint and chalk add to the wine's chiseled personality. The 2014 has gained considerable depth, volume and intensity since I tasted it from barrel as a young wine, but without losing its intensely mineral, understated personality. Today, it is exceptionally beautiful in every way. The blend is 89 % Merlot, 7 % Cabernet Sauvignon and 4 % Cabernet ...Read More »

2013 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot (375ml)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Very much on point with respect to its variety’s classic and close-to-succulent, dark cherry fruit but a well-balanced Merlot with a keen tannic spine and one that never errs to softness or loses its way to pushy ripeness, this continuous, nicely extracted version hints quietly at Cabernet in its solid, slightly tighter structure. It already shows plenty of depth and good range, yet it is bound to impress even more if set aside and given the chance to develop for another three to five years." (4/2017) K&L Notes: This Merlot-dominated blend reminds us why Duckhorn ear... Read More »

2016 Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2016 Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Clinet is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that was picked from 22 September for the young vines, the older vines picked 1 and 2 October, finishing with the Cabernet Sauvignon the following day. It was cropped at 49 hectoliters per hectare and matured in 70% new oak and the remainder in second-fill barrels. It has 14.15% alcohol and a record-breaking 94 IPT. It has a very linear bouquet, quite strict and intense with a light iodine and marine scent merging with the black fruit. This is a more 'aristocratic' nose for Clinet, sophi ...Read More »

2016 La Fleur de Boüard, Lalande-de-Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

92-93 points James Suckling: "Chewy and dense red with licorice, blackberry and dark-chocolate character. Full body and a tight and firm texture. Shows lovely length, too." (4/2017) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 La Fleur de Bouard has a generous bouquet with ample black cherry and cassis scents, with a touch of oyster shell and cold flint in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth and supple tannin. The tannins grip the mouth though it does not become too overpowering, while there is an attractive tobacco note that complements the dusky black fruit on the finish. A more classically styled L ...Read More »

2015 La Gaffeliere, St. Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

Precise and beautifully sculpted throughout, the 2015 bristles with energy. The flavors show good brightness, while the tannins are exceptionally polished. Freshly cut flowers, mint, espresso, sweet red plums and anise grace the palate in an utterly exquisite wine built on finesse, precision and nuance. The 2015 La Gaffelière is an exceptional wine by any measure. The 70% Merlot/30% Cabernet Franc works very well. Stéphane Derenoncourt and Simon Blancha ...Read More »
