2013 Kay Brothers "Hillside" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $55)

95 points James Halliday: "Open-fermented, basket-pressed, matured for 18 months in American and Balkan oak. This is a distillation of all things McLaren Vale shiraz, a poached plum, blackberry and dark chocolate ragout, softly, but insistently, painting every corner of the mouth, the masterstroke the mouthwatering tannins simultaneously freshening and lengthening the finish. Drink this, cellar its big brothers." 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2013 Hillside Shiraz has a lovely, somewhat coy nose of red currants, black plums and kirsch with suggestions of chocolate box, incense, Provence ...Read More »

2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $18)

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. This performs far above its price, a wine to buy by the case and enjoy this winter into spring." (2/2017) 90 points Vinous: "Deep, lurid ruby.

2015 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

92 points Vinous: "The 2015 Syrah Estate (Sta. Rita Hills) is very pretty, but like all of these 2015s, it also needs time to be at its best. Floral and lifted, with tons of energy and tannin, the 2015 is shaping up to be a real beauty. Hints of lavender, licorice, smoke, plum and black cherry build into the super-expressive finish in this soulful midweight Syrah from Melville. (AG)" (9/2017) 91 points Rhone Report: "The 2015 Syrah Sta. Rita Hills is another terrific wine that's always a good value. Black olives, pepper, gamey meats and both kirsch and blacker fruits all emerge from this elegant, se ...Read More »

2015 Halcón "Alturas" Yorkville Highlands Syrah Top Pick!
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. (JebDunnuck.com)" (7/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Syrah Estate Alturas is one of the ...Read More »

2015 Owen Roe "Ex-Umbris" Columbia Valley Syrah

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yakima Valley based Owen Roe's 2015 Ex Umbris is another delicious effort from this vintage that's just loaded with fruit. Blackberries, plums, peppery herbs and black raspberries all emerge from the glass and this beauty has terrific purity, no hard edges and a gulpable, hard to resist personality. (JD)" (6/2017)

2015 Thomas Goss Shiraz McLaren Vale

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackberries, dark cherries and lemon zest. Medium to full body that is dense and tight with lots of peppercorns and berries on the aftertaste. Drink now." 90 points James Halliday: "Various medals, including a remarkable gold medal from the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge '16. This is unusually elegant for a $15 McLaren Vale shiraz, with bright purple and black fruits and superfine tannins. *Special Value Selection*" 90 points Vinous: "Youthful purple. Spice- and smoke-tinged blue fruit and violet scents pick up a peppery nuance with air. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering nicely concent ...Read More »

2015 Christophe Billon Syrah "Correndies" Collines Rhodaniennes

One of our great new finds this year came from our visit to Christophe Billon in Côte-Rotie. Residing in the lieu-dit of Côte Rozier, Billon has flown under the radar for far too long. While working at Guigal, Christophe and his wife Maryline began this side project in 1991. He left Guigal in 2008 to dedicate his full time to their estate vineyards. Christophe now makes three Côte-Roties along with an entry-level Syrah, Viognier and a beautiful Condrieu. The "Correndies" is from his parcel just outside the appellation. It offers Cote-Rotie quality for ... Read More »

2015 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aine "Domaine de Thalabert" Crozes-Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

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 »

2015 Hentley Farm Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Concentration of flavour and overall form and poise is quite incredible given that this isn't among the top-of-the-tree releases from the estate. 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." (2/2016) 92 points Vinous: "(malo and 10 months of aging in French oak barrels, 15 percent of them new) Dark purple. Spice-accented cherry, cassis and licorice scents carry a smoky mineral topnote that gains strength as the wine opens up. Fleshy blackb ...Read More »

2014 Beckmen "Estate Purisima Mountain" Ballard Canyon Syrah

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A fabulous value that delivers on all accounts, the inky colored 2014 Syrah Purisima Mountain (100% Syrah aged 16 months in 35% new French oak) knocks it out of the park with its ripe, decadent black fruits, barbecue smoke, licorice and smoked meat-laced aromas and flavors. Rich, fat and unctuous on the palate, with plenty of freshness and purity, it tastes like it costs two to three times the price. (JD)" (8/2016) 92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard is dark, powerful and authoritative, within the mid-weight personality of the vintage. Black cherry, ...Read More »

1981 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1981 stood out as slightly superior. Winemaker John Duval always felt this was a tannic style of Grange, but the wine has shed its tannins, and this is one of the few vintages where the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon was above 10%. Sweet notes of creme de cassis, cedarwood, charcoal, and barbecue spices are followed by a full-bodied, opulent wine displaying heady amounts of alcohol, glycerin, and density in its full-bodied, skyscraper-like texture. I was drinking this wine with great pleasure in the mid-nineties, yet here it is nearly 15 years late ...Read More »
