2014 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvedre Rosé Stellenbosch

Jancis Robinson: "* WINE OF THE WEEK* Feb 6th 2015: This wine, is to all intents and purposes, a great-value alternative to a dry, herby Bandol rosé. It’s made from the Bandol grape Mourvèdre and has just the same very pale orangey-pink colour, the full body and the dry, food-friendly finish. This is substantial, grown-up rosé that has nothing whatever to do with anything girly, even though the highly competent winemaker is female. (According to Nadia Barnard, only about 10% of winemakers in South Africa are women.) It’s not heavy but its low acid makes it taste quite sof ...Read More »

2010 Château Pibarnon Bandol (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2010 Château Pibarnon Bandol (Pre-Arrival)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Moving to the classic cuvee and even more impressive (it was one of the top wines I was able to taste for this report), the 2010 Bandol, which is over 90% Mourvedre, sees partial destemming and aging in oak casks, offers both gorgeous aromatic complexity and superb richness and depth on the palate. Giving up notions of pepper, Provencal herbs, underbrush and leather, with a solid core of dark fruit, this medium to full-bodied, pure, layered and beautifully balanced effort needs another 2-3 years of bottle age, and will easily keep for a decade or more pa ...Read More »

2012 Bodegas Castaño "Hécula" Monastrell Yecla Top Pick!
2012 Bodegas Castaño "Hécula" Monastrell Yecla

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The basic offering from proprietor Ramon Castano Santa, who owns a whopping 1,000 acres in Yecla, is the 2012 Hecula, which is sourced from a non-irrigated, single vineyard planted with 100% Monastrell. Aged in both tank and French oak, it comes from 60-80-year-old vines planted in limestone soils at a relatively high elevation of over 1,600 feet. Its opaque purple color is followed by copious aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, camphor, licorice, white flowers and a chalky limestone/dusty character. Full-bodied, rich and well-balanced, it is an in ...Read More »

2013 Casa Castillo Monastrell Jumilla

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yields for the 2013 Monastrell (100% Monastrell aged six months in neutral French oak barrels, concrete and foudres) were 16 to 25 hectoliters per hectare, which is about half of that permitted in Burgundy. An amazing value, this wine boasts a dense blue/purple color as well as a sumptuous nose of blueberries, blackberries, scorched earth, licorice and forest floor. Stunningly pure and medium to full-bodied with oodles of fruit, this is a remarkable value to drink until the cows come home. Consume it over the next 2-3 years. Considered by many observers ...Read More »

2013 Bedrock Wine Company "Ode to Lulu" Old Vine Rosé

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale orange. An assertively perfumed bouquet evokes raspberry, blood orange and Asian spices, with an intense floral quality and zesty minerality adding complexity. Dry and precise on the palate, offering sappy red berry, citrus fruit and floral flavors and a jolt of white pepper. Spicy and linear on the long, incisive finish, which leaves red fruit and floral notes behind. (ST)" (6/2014)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Clearly one of the greatest roses I have tasted over the last few years, Bedrock’s 2013 Ode to Lulu ranks alongside some of the fabulous dry roses made by Domaine de la M ...Read More »

2013 Bodegas Castaño Monastrell Viñas Viejas Yecla (Previously $12)

In the southeast of Spain sandwiched between Jumilla and Alicante, wines from Yecla have most prolifically come from what happens to be the largest co-op in Spain. However the Castaño family stands as the most important and ambitious privately owned winery in the D.O., and they have gone to great lengths to push the quality from the often coarse wines for which this region was previously known. Bodegas Castaño started small and has nurtured their old vine plantings, which has done much for their Yecla renaissance. Their four prime estate vineyards now co... Read More »

2014 Bedrock Wine Company "Ode to Lulu" Rosé

From the winery: "Like the last few years, this rosé comes from vines planted prior to 1940 (or perhaps we should say prior to FDR's third term). Picked specifically for rosé, at lower potential alcohol and whole-cluster pressed, this pale and perfumed rosé belies its lighter color and has plenty of density. It bears a strong resemblance to the 2010 and 2011, both of which are still showing nicely now. The backbone of the wine is the ancient Mourvedre--with all of its coniferous perfume and spice--with dashes of Cemetary Vineyard Carignane for salty crun... Read More »

2009 Domaine Bunan "Moulin des Costes" Bandol

The "Moulin des Costes" is a force to be reckoned with. Coming in at 14.5% ABV, this Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah blend delivers on more than one front. It shines in the glass with a dark blood red hue. Rich cloves and dark fruit characterize the inviting, intriguing and intricate nose. This wine’s ripe and generous fruit are immediate, yet an iron-like chalkiness and hint of dark spices flows through the finish. The tannins are bold, maintaining elegant grip all the way through. This big and delicious wine will age another 10 years with ease. (Dave Gen... Read More »

2013 Capcanes "Mas Picosa" Montsant Spain Top Pick!
2013 Capcanes "Mas Picosa" Montsant Spain

Capcanes winery has an interesting story that mirrors those of many European wineries. Cooperatives allowed small family wineries that might otherwise have been driven under by financial obligations, to survive. They pool their resources and use one main facility to process their grapes and make their wines. Thanks to that system, many growers were able to continue to farm through tougher times. Now thanks to fresh investment, many have broken away from the cooperatives to produce very high-quality artisan wines. Capcanes winery produces many wines. The ... Read More »

2011 Domaine du Gros Noré Bandol

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Both of the reds are brilliant and most likely the wines of the vintage, the 2011 Bandol comes from 30-year-old vines and is a blend of 80% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache and 5% Cinsault. Aged 18 months in foudre, it’s a dense, concentrated 2011 that offers notions of black cherry, blackberry, earth and ground herbs on the nose. This flows to a full-bodied, gorgeously put together palate that has considerable structure, superb purity of fruit and a knockout finish. Give it another 2-3 years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 15 years or more. Created ...Read More »

2011 Château Jean-Pierre Gaussen "Cuvée Longue Garde" Bandol

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Bandol Longue Garde was rock solid. A blend of 95% Mourvedre and 5% Grenache (completely destemmed) that’s aged 18 months in foudre, it also shows a slight oxidative quality, yet offers massive amounts of fruit, licorice and crushed rock-like aromas and flavors that flow to a full-bodied, deep and structured feel on the palate. Unique, and most likely not for everyone, it has loads of texture and length while staying enjoyable and very drinkable. (JD)" (2/2014)

2012 Bodegas Olivares "Altos de la Hoya" Jumilla

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Smoky, deeply pitched dark berry compote, licorice and bitter chocolate scents show very good clarity, picking up a sexy floral note with aeration. Stains the palate with intense black and blue fruit flavors, with a lavender pastille quality emerging on the back half. At once rich and energetic on the finish, which clings with excellent tenacity and smooth tannins. A remarkable value, from a country known for delivering bang for the buck" (10/2014)

2013 Shania Monastrell Vino de la tierra de Murcia (3L bag in box) (cannot ship)

Produced by Gil family estates, this is a delicious red wine in this newly (finally!) popular large format. At less than $7 per liter, dare I say that red wine does not get much more delicious and gulpable than this? Pioneers in the production of wines from Monastrell grapes grown in the southeastern portion of Spain, the Gil family know this grape and Jumilla's calcareous vineyard sites as well as anyone. And since they have grown steadily over the years, their expertise and scale combine to make this truly one of the best dollar-for-dollar reds we've g... Read More »

2010 Hewitson "Old Garden" Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

97 points James Halliday: "Clear crimson; a wine that is complete and confident in itself, effortlessly filling the bouquet and palate with its small red and black fruits, a shimmer of tannins throughout, and a lingering finish. Vines planted 1853." (5/2013)96 points James Suckling: "Nick Stock: This ancient vineyard (planted in 1853) is a source of profound and distinctive wine that delivered handsomely in 2010. There's an unmistakably sanguine edge to this: meaty and earthy, darkblue fruits and a wealth of black, graphite-like terroir character. The palate scoops deep and even, really soulful dense tannins ...Read More »

2012 Hewitson "Baby Bush" Mourvèdre Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points James Halliday: "No mistaking its appeal. Berried flavour, complexing notes of tobacco leaf and leather, a general savoury/earthy/spiciness and the sweetness of fruit to keep you tipping back for more. Integrated tannin. More or less unresolved on the finish but time will take care of that."

2004 Bodegas El Nido "Clio" Jumilla
Bid on this bottle of 2004 Bodegas El Nido "Clio" Jumilla (97RP, 93ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The consulting winemaker at Bodegas El Nido is Chris Ringland of Barossa Valley fame. The 2004 Clio is 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 70% Monastrell (from 63-year-old vines) which received malolactic fermentation in new oak followed by 26 months of aging in new French and American barriques. A glass-coating opaque purple, it exhibits a sensational nose of earth, mushroom, leather, blueberry, and blackberry jam. On the palate the wine is supple-textured, complex, with vibrant flavors of spicy blue and black fruits and a big-time WOW factor. This is a totally hedonistic effort with exceptional length and balance. It is remarkably light on its feet for such a powerful wine. (JM)" (02/2007)
