2014 de Landiras Rouge, Graves Top Pick!
2014 de Landiras Rouge, Graves

95 points Decanter: "65% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. Great intensity of classic Bordeaux fruit on the nose, cassis, dark cherries and liquorice. The rich round palate is bursting with fresh blackberry and blackcurrant, lovely silky tannins great length all in perfect harmony. *Decanter World Wine Awards Platinum - Best in Show: Best Red Bordeaux Varietals under £15*" (6/2016) K&L Notes: This property is located at the southern end of the Graves region, very close to Barsac and Sauternes.

Wonderful length and depth. Better than the 2015."

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.

And better in 2014, but why wait?" (7/2012) 90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Firm tannins, but also ripe, sweet fruits, with a fine balance. While the wine is on the light, fresh side, it does have a good, final structure.

2014 Poesia, St-Emilion (Previously $50)

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Poesia is a powerful wine with serious density and richness. Black cherry, plum, spice and leather emerge with great reluctance. This packed, structured Saint-Émilion is going to need at least a few years to fully unwind. Even so, it is both impressive and promising.

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.

This year is a blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc picked from 22 September until 10 October at 45 hectoliters per hectare. It delivers 14.02% alcohol and an IPT of 65.

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."

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.

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 »
