2014 Tour St-Christophe, St-Émilion

94 points James Suckling: "Fantastic aromas of blackberries, flowers, chalk and blueberries. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Intense and structured." (2/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Tour Saint-Christophe comes from Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes, the lieu-dit Cassevert, where proprietor Peter Kwok has built some quite startling terraces on the slope to improve the terroir (apparently recruited from Spain as only they possess the technical know-how).

The wine is full and hugely fruity, but it still manages a good Bordeaux sense of proportion. (RV)" (6/2006) Jancis Robinson: "Smokiness dominates the nose at the moment but there’s still evidence of fresh and aromatic cassis underneath. Rich and yet juicy.

2013 Simi Sonoma County Merlot Top Pick!
2013 Simi Sonoma County Merlot

Much of the fruit for this luscious red comes from Simi's Red Fan and Los Amigos estate vineyards in Alexander Valley, with the remainder sourced from across Sonoma. The 2013 growing season was particularly friendly to red grapes, allowing them to develop concentrated, elegant flavors and bright acidity. Tasting notes for the 2013 vintage from the winemaker: "Deep garnet with a ruby edge, our 2013 Sonoma County Merlot has rich, dark notes of blackberry and plum with cocoa, nutmeg, and earthy hints of cedar and bay laurel.

Wine Spectator: "Solidly built if slight in scale, with savory flavors of red currant, dusty dried herb and spice. Drink now through 2021.

2014 Ancient Peaks Paso Robles Merlot

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star & Good Value* Clean and nicely composed with an attractive nose of juicy red cherries backed up by a trim bit of creamy oak, this well-crafted offering earns the nod for its fine sense of balance, its steady, well-focused fruit and its youthfully tight, slightly claret-like construction. It shows more winemaking polish and depth than its modest price might lead one to expect, and it has all of the right pieces in place to improve for a good half-decade or more.

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.

2013 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

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."

91-94 points Wine Spectator: "*Barrel Tasting* This has a floral nose, with blueberry and mineral. Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and a long, gorgeous finish. Very subtle and complex. This is going in a much more refined style than before due to an increase in the Merlot. 66 percent Merlot, 32 percent Cabernet Franc and 2 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. (Web Only—2010)" 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another brilliant wine from the talented Jean-Philippe Janoueix, this blend of 68% Merlot and 32% Cabernet France produced a wine that came in just under 15% natural alcohol. Of course, the vineyard is near Clos Fourte ...Read More »

2012 Kenefick Ranch "Estate" Calistoga Merlot (Previously $50)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Bold aromas of black currant and espresso lead to dense, rich flavors of black raspberry, mocha and spicy cedar. Drink now through 2020. (TF)" (9/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "A mushroomy underbelly lies beneath a layer of leather and graphite, making for a tight, dry wine with sizable tannin structure. Powerfully concentrated, this wine holds 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and is not for the faint of heart. (VB)" (12/2015)

2016 Tertre Roteboeuf, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival) New!
2016 Tertre Roteboeuf, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Le Tertre Roteboeuf is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare between 14-18 October. This year I was hosted by François' daughter Nina Mitjavile, who has been working alongside her father for several years. It has a wonderful bouquet, very pure and fresh. I anticipated that François Mitjavile might have been tempted to pick a little later like others, but it was an assiduous decision to have the fruit in the vat by the 18 October and lock in that freshness. The palate is very well balanced with fine ta ...Read More »

1997 Grand Mayne, St.-Emilion

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The tell-tale dark ruby color, pronounced minerality, and pure black raspberry fruit are the hallmarks of most Grand-Mayne vintages. The 1997 possesses some tannin, but the overall impression is of an elegant, medium-bodied, slightly lighter than usual wine with sweet fruit...(RP)" (4/2000) Wine Spectator: "Pretty plum and chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a light, fruity aftertaste. (JS)" (1/2000)

2005 Magdelaine, St-Emilion

94 points Vinous: "(a blend of 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; 3.53 pH; IPT 65; 13.8% alcohol): Bright ruby. Sexy, compelling nose of blackcurrant, violet, white pepper and minerals is an absolute knockout. Then very refined on the palate, with a delicate spiciness to the blackcurrant, red plum and mineral flavors, but with noteworthy fleshiness and ripeness lifted by harmonious acidity. This is a very great and impeccably balanced Magdelaine in the making. Finishes long and silky, with a persistent strawberry note. Jean-Claude Berrouet considers this to be a classic Mag ...Read More »
