2014 Les Terrasses de Saint Christophe, St-Émilion

95 points Decanter: "Complex aromas burst through, refined sleek oak overlaying herbaceous dark fruits and a savoury iron background. Black plums and cherries dominate the spicy cocoa palate, with crystalline minerality and a long, confident, peppery, finish. *Platinum Medal - World Wine Awards Best Right Bank Bordeaux*" (8/2017) 90 points James Suckling: "I like the aromas of blackberries, mushrooms and bark that flow through to a palate with a medium body, fine-grained tannins and a fresh finish.

All these elements promise a wine that will be delicious to drink from 2019. The daughters of owners Bernadette Faure and Alain Aubert oversee vineyards, winemaking and marketing. *Editors' Choice* (RV)" (12/2016) 90 points James Suckling: "Plenty of espresso flavors, dark fruit and hints of dried flowers.

Full to medium body, savory and chewy tannins, yet this always remains polished with a long and pretty finish. Drink in 2020, but hard not to drink now."

2013 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

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."

2013 Super Substance "Northridge Vineyard" Wahluke Slope Merlot (Previously $50)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Reviewed last year under the K Vintners label, the 2013 Super Substance Merlot Northridge is a serious effort that’s reminiscent of a top flight Pomerol. It sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as ample black currants, plums, wet clay and earth in a rich, full-bodied, concentrated, layered package that’s already hard to resist. Nevertheless, I suspect it will be even better with 2-3 years of bottle age and drink well over the following 10-15 years. 94+ points.

2015 Haut-Musset, Lalande-de-Pomerol

Haut Musset is one of the up-and-coming Bordeaux properties you’d be wise to keep an eye on. A small estate of ten acres, it’s run by husband-and-wife team Veronique Abbadie and Jerome Aguirre. Veronique’s grandfather planted the vineyard. This dynamic duo met while studying enology and viticulture at the University of Bordeaux and shared a Basque heritage which helped to cement their relationship. Jerome became the winemaker at several small, top-notch Pomerol estates including Le Gay and La Violette, where he fashioned many critically acclaimed wines. ... Read More »

Needs two or three years to soften slightly but already impressive." (1/2015) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Barde-Haut is dark, fleshy and voluptuous, with notable depth and resonance from the Merlot.

As one of the pioneer's of winemaking in the Santa Ynez Valley the Gainey's have made many great wines over the last 4 decades. The problem is that they are still a little known name in the wine conversation and that is a shame because they have made a ton of great wines over the years and were practicing sustainability and organic farming way before those things became buzz words in the business.

The 2013 Merlot Napa, which comes from multiple sources, is their biggest cuvée (89.1% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec aged almost 16 months in oak).

(11/2016) K&L Notes: When you hear the name Rombauer you probably think of buttery, toasty Chardonnay, but did you know that the first wine made by Rombauer Vineyards was a Cabernet Sauvignon in 1980 and it's first Merlot in 1983?

2014 Segonzac Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux Vieilles Vignes

Big, bold fruitiness dominates this wine whose structure is firm while smooth. Drink starting from 2019. (RV)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: The folks at Chateau Segonzac are sticklers for quality. They hand-harvest the fruit from the “old vines” and all the grapes are hand-sorted once they get to the winery. Where other wineries may have made light wines, the careful selection process at Segonzac helps to create concentrated, full flavored wines. The bright lush fr... Read More »

(2/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "There's a nice charcoal note driving this from the start, while the dark plum, blackberry and black currant fruit waits in reserve.

It has plenty of weight but is carefully constructed and matches richness with considerable refinement, and, if it progressively firms and tightens a touch as it crosses the palate, it exhibits remarkable stamina and fruity strength.
