The Desmeures family of Domaine des Remizières are fourth-generation winemakers who originally sold grapes to the local cooperative.

2015 Cave de Tain Syrah Collines Rhodaniennes (Previously $12)

From the leading producer of "cru" wines in Northern Rhône, this deep and supple wine displays seductive aromas of blackberry, currant and baking spice, with a hint of licorice. Wine Advocate praised the producer: "I continue to consider Cave de Tain to be one of the best co-ops in the world, and they make a bevy of truly outstanding wines. This is in part, I’m sure, due to their incredible, state of the art cellar/winery that is located on the outskirts of Tain l’Hermitage. In addition, they have a terrific vineyard management and winemaking team." (11/... Read More »

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.

Purple flowers rule the palate, with lavender, violet and blossoming rosemary notes, with thyme and white pepper spicing up boysenberry fruit.

2013 K Vintners "Cattle King - Upland Vineyard" Snipes Mountain Syrah

Coming from the River Rock Vineyard in Walla Walla and the Upland Vineyard in Snipes Mountain, not destemmed and brought up all in larger barrels, this beauty offers a sensational perfume of smoked meats, pepper, licorice, black olives and assorted ripe black fruits.

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.

Succulent, rich and powerful, with predominantly black fruits and some spice. The hallmarks are its supple mouthfeel and effortless balance." 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editor's Choice* Dark berry and plum fruit dominates, but hints of mint, vanilla and cedar add interest.

It offers more texture, depth, richness and elegance over the Estate Syrah and possesses beautiful notes of creme de cassis, barbecue smoke, crushed pepper and violets.

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.

2013 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Christophe" 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 »

Sappy and precise, showing strong mineral lift and energy to the sappy dark berry and licorice flavors. Closes smoky and very long, with a whiplash of juicy dark berries and slow-mounting tannins.

2014 Qupé Central Coast Syrah

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.

It is, of course, full-bodied, and doesn't have the fluid grace of the other Hentley Farm '13 Shirazs. It is indeed a beast, but will repay those who put their faith in the high quality corks used by Henley Farm."

(3/2017) 91 points Vinous: "The 2014 Syrah Estate is surprisingly succulent for a young Stolpman Syrah, which Peter Stolpman attributes to warmer nights and softer extractions.

Again, the value here is about as good as it gets.

2015 Tensley "Colson Canyon Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah

94-97 points Vinous: "Another highlight, the 2015 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard brings together so many of the elements that make Tensley's Syrahs so compelling. 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. Because of the low yields, the new oak is a bit high in 2015, but all the elements are very nicely married. The Colson Canyon is shaping up to be another gem from Joey Tensley.

It is no less full and weighty than its partner below, yet it takes a step back from the brink of being overly extravagant and, by a small margin, is more comfortably balanced in a way that allows its varietal voice to prevail over chocolaty ripeness.

2013 K Vintners "Rock Garden" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More Northern Rhone in style, with lots of red and black fruits, olive, peppered meats and sweet fruit, the 2013 Syrah Rock Garden is seamless, downright sexy and layered on the palate, with a voluptuous, yet classy and focused texture. Like all of the Rhone blends from this estate, it was fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged mostly in neutral barrels and puncheons. Give bottles a year or two and enjoy over the following decade. These latest releases from Charles Smith check in at the top of the pyramid and are flat out incredible wines that I wis ...Read More »

2015 Ferraton Père et Fils "Les Grands Muriers" Cornas (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another no brainer purchase is the 2015 Cornas les Grands Mûriers, and this is the first time this cuvée has incorporated 15% whole clusters. Its black/blue color is followed by lots of pepper, saddle leather, black fruits and crushed rocks, and it has fabulous purity, ripe tannin and nicely integrated acidity. Again, short-term cellaring will be the name of the game. The quality (and number of cuvées) from this estate continues to soar, and this is easily the finest lineup up of wines I’ve tasted from this team. (JD)" (12/2016)

2013 Sans Liege "Long Way Home" Santa Barbara County Syrah

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The inky colored 2013 Syrah Long Way Home comes from top sites (Bien Nacido, Larner, White Hawk and Watch Hill) in Santa Barbara County, saw 25-30% whole clusters and spent 22 months in 20% new French oak. Medium to full-bodied, fruit-loaded and forward, with tons of plum, cracked pepper and garrigue, it has notable tannin and a great, decadent and heady finish.

2011 Alain Voge "Vieilles Vignes" Cornas

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A remarkable effort, the 2011 Cornas Vieilles Vignes is one of the stars of the vintage. Superbly concentrated with an inky/purple color and a layered texture, it reveals copious aromas of blueberries, blackberries and spring flowers intermixed with hints of pen ink, lavender and graphite. Full-bodied as well as supple and accessible, it should keep for 12-15 years. (JD)" (12/2012) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Vibrant, with terrific, chiseled cut to the range of briar, anise, blackberry compote, bay leaf, iron and sanguine notes, all wrapped with singed alder and juniper accents on th ...Read More »

2014 Morgan "G17" Monterey Syrah (375ml)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Good Value* We are never surprised by the quality and consistent value that Morgan’s Syrahs provide, but this exceptionally well-made effort earns an especially appreciative tip of the CGCW cap. It is rich, full and fleshy with great varietal integrity, and its deep, very precise, blackberry fruit is infused with plenty of the grape’s distinctive pepper-and-game spice. It is at once both sturdy and surprisingly well-mannered with an inkling of polish that is bound to tempt early drinking. Its modest price might easily lead to conclusions that it is a wi ...Read More »

2013 K Vintners "Morrison Lane" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another wine that overachieves is the 2013 Syrah Morrison Lane. Easily the best vintage of this cuvee to date, it has a killer bouquet of olive tapenade, grounded, peppered meats and a core of darker fruits. Medium to full-bodied, seamless, elegant and with fine tannin, it’s terrific and will drink nicely for 10-15 years. (JD)" (6/2016) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Kirsch, wet stone, lavender and dried herb aromas are followed by ripe jazzy generous dark-fruit flavors. Fine-grained tannins provide support, with a supple mouthfeel piquing the interest." (2/2017) 92 points Vinous: "(14.5% alcohol; 40% new o ...Read More »
