93 points Wine & Spirits: "A modern take on an old-fashioned style of Eden Valley Shiraz, this is bold in flavor but not at all massive - more about stamina and grace than density and weight. Its flavors of red currants, jasmine and tar have forthright power, a zesty blast of Shiraz spice that leaves a clean, fresh taste in its wake.

2012 Domaine Lionnet "Terre Brulée" Cornas

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made by Ludovic Izerable and crazy good, the 2012 Cornas Terre Brûlée is a stunning Cornas that spent 18 months in 2- to 8-year-old barrels and demi-muid. Offering up notes of black raspberry, cassis, currants, ground herbs, spice and insane minerality, it hits the palate with a full-bodied, rich, yet taunt and pure texture that carries vibrant acidity and length. Still reserved and backwards, give this beauty another 3-4 years and enjoy bottles through 2027+. (JD)" (12/2014)

2014 Tensley Santa Barbara County Syrah

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2014 Syrah Santa Barbara is a sexy, sweetly fruited and voluptuous Syrah that offers up a rockin' bouquet of blueberry, blackberry, violets and pepper. It should drink nicely on release and over the following 5-6 years. Santa Barbara County’s Joey Tensley continues to make ripe, textured and voluptuous wines that deliver serious bang for the buck. The latest 2013s and 2014s are all outstanding. However, recent vintages are pushing on the sweetness level, and in a number of cases, there’s obvious residual sugar in the wines ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Garon Cote Rotie "Les Triotes" (Pre-Arrival)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What should be another good value, the 2015 Côte Rôtie les Triotes comes from the La Triotes, Lancement, le Combard and le Mollard lieux-dits, and will see 18 months in 25% new oak. It’s a medium to full-bodied, supple, even sexy effort that offers a touch of violets, smoked meat, bourbon barrel and vanilla. It has sweet tannin and I suspect will drink nicely in its youth, yet also evolve for a decade or more. While the 2014s from winemaker Kevin Garon are seriously good, don’t miss the 2015s, as these are the finest wines I’ve tasted from this estate ...Read More »

2012 E. Guigal "Château d'Ampuis" Côte-Rotie Top Pick!
2012 E. Guigal "Château d'Ampuis" Côte-Rotie

97 points James Suckling: "The nose has a complex array of fine-ground eastern spices, strong cardamom, fine dark chocolate, ripe black cherry and plums. There's even some liquorice. It has a neatly composed and elegant feel on the palate; it really flows long, rippling with spicy flavors and a smooth, dense and creamy finish. Best from 2028 for a decade or more." (10/2016) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Côte Rôtie Château d’Ampuis is a bigger, richer wine that offers full-bodied richness and a broad, expansive style on the palate. Black raspberries, toasted spices, cured meats and licorice all emerge fr ...Read More »

2015 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage Back In Stock!
2015 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage

Vinous: "Lurid violet. Ripe cherry and black raspberry on the nose, along with hints of violet and cracked pepper. Concentrated and lively as well, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors that pick up a hint of smokiness on the back half. A licorice candy nuance appears on the clinging finish, which is given shape by smooth tannins. (JR)" (4/2017)

2014 Stolpman "Originals" Ballard Canyon Syrah (Previously $40)

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "One of the first wineries to see Ballard Canyon's potential as an important locale in which to grow and make wines from classic Rhône varieties, Stolpman is very much an original and continues to produce some of the state's finest Syrahs. This particular effort shows great varietal definition and depth with loads of peppery spice and a strong gamy streak indelibly marking it as nothing other than Syrah. It is a big, intense, fully ripe, well-constructed wine that does not abandon structure and balance in its successful pursuit of richness, and, in the en ...Read More »

2015 Domaine Garon Cote Rotie "Les Rochins" (Pre-Arrival)

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The single-vineyard 2015 Côte Rôtie les Rochins comes from schist soils just up the slope from the La Landonne lieu-dit. Mostly destemmed and aged in 40% new French oak, it offers full-bodied notes of blackberry and cassis, impressive purity of fruit, fine tannin and a lengthy finish. There’s certainly a modern slant here, but it has a wealth of fruit and its oak component is pushed into the background. Forget bottles for 4-5 years. While the 2014s from winemaker Kevin Garon are seriously good, don’t miss the 2015s, as these are the finest wines I’ve ...Read More »

2015 Halcón "Alturas" Yorkville Highlands Syrah

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Syrah Alturas is also a beauty that has a passing resemblance to a good vintage of Guigal’s Côte Rôtie la Mouline (just with less oak). Violets, incense, spring flowers, blackberries and blueberry notes all flow to a full-bodied, elegant, seamlessly textured Syrah that has plenty of classic pepper and spice, solid mid-palate depth and ripe tannin on the finish. It needs an hour in the decanter if drinking over the coming 2-3 years, and will have 15+ years of overall longevity. (JebDunnuck.com)" (7/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Syrah Estate Alturas is one of the ...Read More »
