2015 Domaine des Remizières Crozes-Hermitage

90 points Vinous: "Bright violet. Spice-accented dark berry and cherry aromas show good clarity and a complementary floral nuance. Sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering juicy blackberry and cherry flavors and a touch of salty olive. Fine-grained tannins lend shape to the finish, which hangs on with very good, spice-tinged persistence. (JR)" (7/2017) K&L Notes: The Desmeures family of Domaine des Remizières are fourth-generation winemakers who originally sold grapes to the local cooperative. After completing their winery in 1974, the family began production at their new property... Read More »

2014 K Vintners "Motor City Kitty-River Rock Vineyard" Yakima Valley Syrah Top Pick!
2014 K Vintners "Motor City Kitty-River Rock Vineyard" Yakima Valley Syrah

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Named after a cat owned by Charles when he was living in Walla Walla, the 2014 M C K Syrah sports a deep purple color as well as ripe, decadent notes of black fruits, plums, graphite, crushed rock and licorice. Big, sexy, seamless and pure, with present, yet ripe tannin, drink it through 2024. It’s worth noting that this comes completely from the River Rock vineyard in this vintage. As usual, it's a crazy value.

2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia Top Pick!
2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia

93 points Wine & Spirits: "*Best Buy* 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. This performs far above its price, a wine to buy by the case and enjoy this winter into spring."

2015 Halcón "Alturas" Yorkville Highlands Syrah

94 points Rhone Report: "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.

2015 Andrew Murray "Tous les Jours" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

Rhone Report: "The 2015 Syrah Tous les Jours comes from a multitude of sites in the Santa Ynez Valley and is 100% Syrah that saw a touch of whole cluster and aging all in neutral barrels. I always love this wine and it reminds me of a youthful Côtes du Rhône with its raspberry, pepper and garrigue-scented bouquet. Forward, delicious, beautifully textured and ready to go, drink it over the coming 2-4 years. I’ve always loved the wines from Andrew Murray, and his latest 2015s are rock solid across the board.

It has notable tannin that will need a year or so to integrate, and it's certainly one of the most successful wines in the vintage from Crozes Hermitage.

2015 Domaine du Tunnel Saint Joseph

Blackberries, blackcurrants, crushed rocks and a hint of burning embers all emerge from this full-bodied, concentrated St Joseph that has top-notch richness and flavor intensity. It needs short-term cellaring and will drink nicely for over a decade. (JD)" (12/2016) 90-92 points Vinous: "(made from fruit grown on a one-hectare plot of granitic soil near Tournon) Bright violet.

2013 Trinity Hill "Gimblett Gravels" Syrah Hawke's Bay (Black Label)

96-97 points Raymond Chan: "Very dark, deep, purple-red colour. The nose is near decadent in richness, with well-ripened black berry fruit. I see plums, hints of boysenberries and black pepper. Black and violet florals lift the aromatics. Nuances of oak spice and complex savoury hints add detail. The palate features the very ripe fruit. Is this verging on showing some over-ripe notes? If so, it works extremely well, as there are still lovely perfumes. The extraction and structure are more a feature on the palate than last showing. The tannins are very fine-grained and powdery.

Fragrant aromas of dark plum, blueberry, floral, cedar and white pepper lead to a succulent palate that is concentrated and richly textured. The wine shows wonderful fruit intensity as well as refinement, and promises to develop beautifully. At its best: 2016 to 2024." 92-93 points Raymond Chan: "Very dark black-red colour with purple hues, near impenetrable.

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 reds from the Northern Rhône are truly spectacular and this vintage rivals or surpasses the 2010s and 2009s. Brought up in a mix of tronconique tanks and Burgundy barrels (20% being new), the 2015 Crozes Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert is a big, serious, full-bodied effort that’s reminiscent of a slightly softer version of the 2010. Scorched earth, black fruits, cassis, black olive and a hint of graphite all emerge from this sensational Crozes Hermitage. You’ll need to forget bottles for 4-5 years, but it will have over two decades of longevity. ...Read More »

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.

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."

Top value." 92 points Wine Spectator: "When I tasted this blind, with no indication of price, I wrote, "That’s pretty damned good."

It’s lean and simple, a quaffable syrah for pork chops." (10/2016) K&L Notes: Qupé (pronounced 'kyoo-pay') is the Chumash Indian word for California poppy, and for many, is also the "first word" in the Central Coast area's Rhône-style wines.

Intense in its aromatics and palate feel, the 2015 hits all the right notes. Sweet red cherry, rose petal, raspberry jam and a dollop of French oak are some of the signatures.

Cal Blanca is easily one of the best Toro's I have tasted in some time, undoubtedly the best for under $40 (well under $40, in fact) Toro is a region known for its thick skinned local Tempranillo clone (tinto del pais) and it's stony terroirs; this is a combination with the potential to produce some seriously tannic wines.

2014 Charles Smith "Boom Boom" Washington Syrah

Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* The aromas of blue fruit and herb seem light considering the warmth of the vintage. The palate brings a mouthful of fruit flavors, bringing a pleasing sense of freshness. It all seems a bit dialed back." (2/2017) Wine Spectator: "Fresh and supple, with a beet salad edge to the berry and lime flavors, finishing light and persistent. (HS)" (12/2015)

2013 Bernard Levet "Les Journaries" Côte-Rôtie

94 points Vinous: "(aged in all older foudres): Dark purple. Powerful, strongly perfumed blackberry and cherry liqueur scents pick up sexy floral and spicecake nuances and a hint of smokiness with aeration. Rich, seamless and broad on the palate, offering concentrated yet lively black and blue fruit and violet pastille flavors energized by juicy acidity and an intense mineral quality. Finishes smooth, sweet and extremely long, with velvety tannins and a strong echo of peppery spices and smoky minerals. (JR)" (3/2016)

2014 Morgan "G17" Monterey Syrah (375ml)

2015 Domaine Johann Michel Cornas

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cornas looks to be a brilliant wine. Blackberries, wild herbs, pepper and black olives all emerge from this full-bodied, rich, unctuous and tannic 2015 that's going to require 2-4 years of cellaring and keep for 15-20 years. (JD)" (12/2016)
