2013 Holus Bolus Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "#6 on Top 100 *Best of 2016, Editors' Choice* Though this bottling is Peter Hunken's least-expensive Syrah, it gives his single-vineyard expressions a serious run for the money for best of vintage. Amazing aromas of chipped asphalt, smoked beef, dense boysenberry, soy, cedar, sandalwood and soy drop into a palate of peppery berry juice, beef jerky, underripe blackberry and elderberry, and pepper-crusted teriyaki beef. (MK)" (10/2016) K&L Notes: From the winery: "The 2013 Holus Bolus Syrah is sourced entirely from John Sebastiano Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills. This wine... Read More »

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Probably the greatest vintage of this cuvee to date, the 2014 Syrah Milbrandt Vineyard is 100% Syrah, fermented with 100% whole clusters, that spent 15 months in 20% new French oak barrels and puncheons. This beauty is overflowing with notes of cassis, caramelized meats, licorice and spice, which gives way to a full-bodied, concentrated, superbly textured Syrah that can be enjoyed today, or cellared for a decade.

2014 Andrew Murray "Tous les Jours" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Showing incredible depth for such an affordable wine, Andrew Murray does it again with this widely available bottling. The gamy nose shows lamb, rosemary, uncracked peppercorns, light tobacco leaf, soy sauce and a touch of tar. Purple flowers rule the palate, with lavender, violet and blossoming rosemary notes, with thyme and white pepper spicing up boysenberry fruit.

2014 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I always love the two blockbuster Syrahs from this estate, both of which need to be sought out by readers. Tons of black olive, smoked and salted meats, as well as ripe dark fruits all emerge from the incredibly polished, elegant and layered 2014 Syrah Estate, which is just an off the hook value. Inky colored, layered, yet graceful and light on its feet, with gorgeous fruit, drink this beauty over the coming 4-5 years, although I wouldn't be surprised to see it evolve for longer.

92 points Rhone Report: "The 2008 Martinelli Syrah Hop Camp Vineyard "Gravel Lens" (Grave lens refers to the rare soil characteristic of alluvial soil layers interleaved with layers of gravel) is a big, beautifully fruited Syrah that possess touches of northern Rhone like qualities mainly on the nose.

2012 E. Guigal "Brune et Blonde" Côte-Rôtie

94 points James Suckling: "Bottled as a single blend in 2012, this has a fine, peppery edge to the nose with elegant dark-chocolate aromas ahead of brambly dark plums and black-cherry fruits. There's a wealth of richness and power here, and it's so layered and dense. A wine that shows a smooth build of fine and even tannin. The gentle pepperiness cracks into the finish, where there's another warm dark chocolate afterglow. This spent 36 months in oak, of which 50% was new. Best from 2018 and for at least a decade afterwards." (11/2016) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Scheduled to be bottled in two weeks, the 2012 C ...Read More »

2012 William Murdoch Estate Syrah Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay (Previously $20)

Fantastic aromatics that would make a great Côte-Rôtie blush. A mélange of brambly red and black fruits, smoked meat, sandal wood, rubbing spices, crushed violets and clove. Supple, elegant and vibrant on the palate; great energy and freshness from the cooler vintage. Really special Syrah. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L NZ Wine Buyer)

2013 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Crozes Hermitage Cuvée Christophe should be in the same ballpark as the 2014 (which shows just how good the 2014 is, as 2014 is a much more difficult vintage for Crozes Hermitage). Possessing a touch of modern sheen in its graphite, black raspberry and crushed violet bouquet, this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, a tight, focused, yet gorgeously pure texture and good, maybe not great levels of concentration. It’s still a touch backwards and reticent, and my money is on it benefiting from a year or three in the cellar, and drin ...Read More »

95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Crozes Hermitage excelled in 2015 and all three of these releases from Chapoutier are more than notable. The 2015 Crozes Ermitage Les Varonniers comes from a cool, west-facing parcel just beside the Bessards lieu-dit of Hermitage. My money is on this being the finest Crozes of the vintage.

This is where the wine drinker really is the winner. It's thick with flavour but remains buoyant, even jolly, with life. Tannin too shirks no issues whatsoever. Barossa at its best."

95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting off the four selection parcellaires releases and from a lieu-dit located just at the bottom of the Le Méal lieu-dit, the 2014 Ermitage les Greffieux was completely destemmed, vinified all in concrete (as are the vast majority of Michel’s wines) and aged in a combination of 25% new barrels and demi-muids. Inky black/blue colored, full-bodied, rich and sexy with a beautifully expansive, mouth filling texture, it has classic Hermitage notes of lead pencil, liquid rock, black olive and assorted darker fruits. It’s shockingly good in the vintage and ...Read More »

2013 Jaffurs Santa Barbara County Syrah (375ml)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A year in, year out killer value, Jaffurs' 2013 Syrah checks in as 84% Syrah, 9% Petite Sirah, 4% Mourvedre and a splash of Grenache that was completely destemmed and aged 10 months in neutral oak. It's gives up tons of classic Cali Syrah notes of brambly blackberries, plums, licorice, violets and pepper herbs to go with a medium to full-bodied, plump, pure and straight-up delicious style on the palate. California (and Syrah) needs to have more of these fabulous wines at these prices. Buy this by the case and enjoy bottles over the coming 4-5 years. (JD) ...Read More »

2015 M. Chapoutier "Barbe Rac" Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 100% Grenache 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac sports a deep ruby color as well as blockbuster notes of black cherries, crème de cassis, graphite, crushed rock and Provençal spices. This full-bodied beauty has terrific mid-palate density, building, ripe tannin, and serious length, all while still showing the hallmark elegance and minerality of this cuvée. Give bottles 4-5 years in the cellar, and enjoy over the following decade or more. While I’ve always preferred the Barbe Rac cuvée in the past, the quality of the Croix de Bois cuvée continues to ...Read More »

2013 Unti "Benchlands" Dry Creek Valley Syrah

Always one of our favorite Unti wines, the 2013 Benchland Syrah comes from fruit grown in a small section of the family's six-acre vineyard on the eastside Dry Creek Bench. It's ink-black in the glass, with just a touch of crimson at the rim, with intense aromas of Italian bresaola, blackberries, smoke and chocolate that all carry over the palate. An intensely structured Syrah, this will benefit from another year in the cellar, but it's already knitting together quite nicely.

2013 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Rouge Top Pick!
2013 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Rouge

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still in barrel at the time of this tasting, the 2013 Hermitage will certainly be one of the wines of the vintage. Offering classic, granite-induced notes of smoked dark fruits, graphite, searing minerality and bouquet garni, this sensational Hermitage has medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate density and building tannin, all with the freshness and purity of the vintage. Reminiscent of a more backwards, tight, focused and granite-driven year (I asked Jean-Louis if there was a similar vintage he could recall, he commented that he couldn't t ...Read More »

2014 Powell & Son "Loechel Vineyard" Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia Top Pick!
2014 Powell & Son "Loechel Vineyard" Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Loechel Shiraz reveals notes of crushed black berries, black cherries and mulberries with hints of sage, lavender, dark chocolate and loam. The medium to full-bodied plate is youthfully taut and firm with finely grained tannins and lovely harmony finishing long, earthy and multilayered. (LPB)" (6/2016) K&L Notes: 94+ points Wine Front: "It’s a wine that shows impact and concentration but never feels dense and heavy. The bouquet is attractive in currants, figs, faint sage notes and a clove-like oak character. The lush, controlled f... Read More »

2012 Skylark "Rodgers Creek" Sonoma Coast Syrah

93 points Wine Spectator: "Bold blueberry and smoky meat aromas lead to complex, expressive flavors of dark plum, crushed stone and licorice that linger toward big but ripe tannins. (TF)" (12/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another outstanding wine from this team, the 2012 Syrah Rodgers Creek was fermented with 30% whole clusters and aged in 25% new French oak. It has a Northern Rhone-like feel in its peppery, olive, bacon fat and dark fruit-scented bouquet. This gives way to a medium-bodied, supple, textured red that has solid mid-palate concentration and a great finish. (RP)" (8/2015)

2013 Trinity Hill "Homage" Syrah Hawke's Bay (Elsewhere $100+)

100 points Raymond Chan: "Very dark, near saturated black-hued purple-red colour. The nose is very intense, but elegantly proportioned with a tightly bound and concentrated core of aromatic black berried fruits interwoven with an array of black and violet florals, and entwined with exotic herbs, Asian and Middle Eastern spices, liquorice and nutty elements. This is complex, detailed and absolutely refined with its depth and penetration. Medium-full bodied, the palate has elegance and concentration alongside intensity and depth. The flavours of ripe black berried fruits are seamle ...Read More »

2013 Raidis Estate Shiraz Coonawarra South Australia

Energetic Shiraz with deep red / black fruit, smoked meat, bramble fruit and lifted spice. Lovely soft, generous mid-palate but also has fresh, juicy acidity. Really delivers a lot of quality for the price point. Raidis is a small family owned estate in the prestigious limestone rich soils of Coonawarra. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Aussie Wine Buyer)
