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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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)

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 »

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 »

2012 Domaine de la Bastide Blanche Bandol Top Pick!
2012 Domaine de la Bastide Blanche Bandol

From the importer: "In the early ‘70s Michel and Louis Bronzo acquired the property of the Bastide Blanche, with an eye to produce from appellation Bandol wines the equal of more famous appellations like Cha^teauneuf. Their painstaking efforts were rewarded in 1993 when vintage conditions created the benchmark year to put Bandol in general and Bastide-Blanche, in particular, on the map of top producers in France. Common each year to their success are their very low yields, never more than 34 or 35 Hl/Ha, and simply impeccable cellar conditions and attent... Read More »

2013 Cline "Ancient Vines" Contra Costa County Mourvèdre

Cline's "Ancient Vines" series comes from their treasured old vineyards that are planted in sandy soil in the Delta region--not quite Central Valley, and just southeast of Napa Valley. Mourvedre, now a hit with Central Coast Rhone Rangers, and fans of the wines of the south of France, was popular many decades ago, too. This wine, from low-yielding old vines, was aged in 30% new American oak.

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 »

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 »

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."

2013 Paix Sur Terre "The Other One" Paso Robles Mourvedre

The Other One is a barrel selection of the most site specific and mineral driven barrels of Glenrose Mourvedre in our cellar. The Mourvedre from the upper and lower terraces was picked within three days of each other during the first week of October. 100% whole cluster and aged in 85% neutral oak and 15% new French oak, The Other One has plenty of black cherry fruit with notes of sagebrush, roasted meats, and mouthwatering minerality.

Aged three months in French oak, it showcases the brilliant quality of the Mourvèdre grape from this sunny appellation. The wine boasts an opaque ruby/purple color along with notes of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, black raspberries and a hint of blueberries.

A dark, mysterious wine, the 2012 is also quite deep, nuanced and impeccable in its balance. There is plenty of varietal character in the glass.

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)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Clio, composed of 70% old-vine Monastrell and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, is opaque purple-colored with an enthralling bouquet of pain grille, spice box, violets, espresso, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered, opulent, and full-flavored, this thick wine has superb concentration and balance. It will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2025. The winemaking at the El Nido project is overseen by renowned Australian vigneron Chris Ringland. After a meticulous selection process, the grapes are basket pressed and fermented in oak. Malolactic fermentation occurs in new French and American oak where the wine remains for 26 months. (JM)"

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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another amazing offering is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Chimere, a blend of 93% Mourvedre, 5% Grenache and the rest white varietals. Packaged in a distinctive Italian glass bottle, this inky/purple-colored 2010 exhibits notes of blueberries, charcoal, roasted herbs and scorched earth. The complex aromas are followed by a full-bodied, super intense, young, unevolved wine that was bottled April 26, 2012, but still resembles a barrel sample. As the wine sits in the glass, aromas of blueberries, licorice and graphite emerge. While the tannins are sweet, they are abundant. This remarkable effort came from one 300-liter foudre.

It’s a massive, masculine and structured Chateauneuf du Pape that needs to be tasted to be believed. Cassis, creamy licorice, jammy blackberry and crushed flowers are only a few of the nuances here, and it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, incredible mid-palate depth and a blockbuster finish that just won’t quit.
