2015 The Opportunist Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Peter Leske, the original winemaker at Nepenthe who bought that winery and renamed it Revenir, has partnered with Fergal Tynan and Giles Cooke, both MWs and both directors of Alliance Wine in the UK. Together, their projects include Thistledown and One Chain in South Australia, their goal to emphasize freshness by picking just prior to peak ripeness rather than after. They sourced fruit for this shiraz from Langhorne Creek, presenting a wine that’s light and just luscious enough to surround all of its spicy, cumin-edged acidity in sour-cherry and plum-pi ...Read More »

2016 Vincent Paris "Granit 60" Cornas Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from tank prior to bottling, the 2016 Cornas Granit 60 has the potential to eclipse the 2015. The nose is an exciting blend of flowers, minerals and fruit, while the palate is full-bodied and generous without the hardness or austerity of the 2015. This standout 2016 finishes long, plush and bright. With only about 5,000 bottles made, shrewd buyers will snap it up on release. Vincent Paris has been working in Cornas for more than a decade, but still qualifies (in my opinion) as one of the young guys. His prized parcel is in La Geynale, a plot of ...Read More »

2017 Rabble Wine Co. Paso Robles Rosé

The Rabble labels are renditions of historical wood block prints from the Nuremberg Chronicle (late 1400’s), textured and tactile, depicting nature’s wrath. Nature is ruthless when it goes ignored. This label illustrates the Siren Mermaid lures in weary pirates with her beauty, but she is not to be taken lightly.

K&L Notes: Importer's Notes: "This Shiraz has generous plum fruit aromas enhanced with a hint of cracked pepper and sweet French oak.
