2013 Mas Alta "Black Slate" La Vilella Alta Priorat Top Pick!
2013 Mas Alta "Black Slate" La Vilella Alta Priorat

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a joint venture between famed Rhône négociant Michel Tardieu, his oenologist Philippe Cambie and importer Eric Solomon. From the area of Priorat known as the Vilella Alta, these are high-density vineyards planted more than 1,000 feet above sea level. The vines average between 15 to 60 years old. The final blend of the 2013 Black Slate is 60% Grenache, 35% Carignan and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, all aged for one year in French oak (60% new and 40% one-year-old). The color is inky/bluish/purple. The wine offers up notes of blueberry and blackberry liqu ...Read More »

2013 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena

In the region of Cariñena, the Garnacha grape variety seems to find a lovely expression, one which is less high octane and lighter on its feet than in some of the neighboring regions. And, as ever, this is a terrific red wine bargain for anyone looking for an inexpensive house red or wine for any party, wedding, or other event.

2012 Bodegas Palacios Remondo "La Montesa" Crianza Rioja Top Pick!
2012 Bodegas Palacios Remondo "La Montesa" Crianza Rioja

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2012 was one of the driest and warmest years on record (the third driest August since 1961, the fourth warmest since 1961). The 2012 Rioja Crianza la Montesa is a blend of 80% Garnacha, 15% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo (Cariñena) from grapes grown in the La Montesa estate in Alfaro, Rioja Baja where the red Garnacha reigns over Tempranillo. The wine is getting lighter and more ethereal, but this ripe 2012 has a heady nose of cherries in liqueur but also black and sour cherries, unnoticeable oak plus just a pinch of dark spices.

2013 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra Terra Alta Top Pick!
2013 Herencia Altes Garnatxa Negra Terra Alta

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(raised entirely in concrete): Brilliant ruby. Pure, high-pitched aromas of redcurrant, strawberry, blood orange and fresh rose, plus a bright mineral overtone. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering sappy red fruit and floral pastille flavors lifted by spice and mineral nuances. Closes spicy, nervy and long, with silky tannins making a late appearance. Finding a wine with this much clarity and precision is a tough job at double and even triple the price of this one."

It was foot trodden and fermented in cement vats and aged for nine months in used 500-liter oak barrels.

Wine Spectator: "Smooth and compact, this red offers cherry, vanilla and light smoky notes, with accents of herb and licorice. A bit candied in character, but has lively acidity." (8/2014) K&L Notes: This delicious, 100% Garnacha from the Aragon "Garnacha Belt" D.O. of Campo de Borja, shows all the bright red cherry fruit you'd expect form this grape variety, with the added richness, texture and length which old vines deliver in this portion of Spain. A whole lot of value for the money.

2012 Mas d'en Compte "Black Slate - Porrera" Priorat

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From one of Priorat’s coolest micro-climates, this 2012 Black Slate is composed of 60% old vine Grenache (60+ years) and 40% old Carignan (80 years), and aged 12 months in concrete tanks, old wood foudres, and two-year-old barrels. It reveals lots of licorice, crushed wet rock, sweet blueberry and black raspberry fruit characteristics along with a full-bodied, moderately tannic mouthfeel.

Made all from Grenache and aged all in concrete, it’s up there with the top wines in the appellation. It should drink nicely for a decade or more.

This is as elegant an example of Garnacha (a.k.a. Grenache) as you are likely to find. Catalan winemaker Marc Isart Pinos is taking old vines, applying excellent viticultural work, fermenting in foudre (with some whole clusters used, as well as long maceration on the skins for further complexity/elegance), and bottling with a minimum of sulphur to create this beautiful, expressive wine.

If you know previous vintages of this wine, this 2012 has a lot less oak and extraction. Also this ruby-colored red is sporting a fresher, more precise nose dominated by wild red berries and hints of spices and herbs.

It is really affordable too, considering that it bears the signature of Álvaro Palacios. It is bottled at different phases, released already because 2012 and 2013 were short vintages, and this lot is the first bottling with around four months in barrel; the last lot is kept in large oak and cement vats so all lots are more or less four months in barrels.

Deceptively medium in body, the 2013 offers plenty of depth and varietal character to match its translucent personality and fabulous palate presence. All the elements are in the right place.

2007 M. Chapoutier Banyuls (500ml) Back In Stock!
2007 M. Chapoutier Banyuls (500ml)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Utilizing contract fruit from very old Grenache vines vinified at the facility in Latour de France that is utilized for the wines of Bila-Haut, the Chapoutier 2007 Banyuls smells alluringly of black raspberry preserves, freesia, black tea, and an alkaline, briny note it is impossible not to associate with the ocean, even if its proximity to these grapes is entirely incidental to this aspect of their flavor. Less exuberant than the corresponding 2006, this is both more viscous and liqueur-like and at the same time... Read More »

2005 Domaine de la Mordorée "La Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
2005 Domaine de la Mordorée "La Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Delorme Brother’s 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois has been incredibly consistent for me, and is always an upper-90s scoring wine. A big, full-bodied, structured effort, its inky purple color is followed by a terrific bouquet of ripe black fruits, toasted spice, graphite, chocolate and garrigue. Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and the rest 5% Vaccarèse, brought up 30% in barrels and 70% in stainless steel, it will have another 10-15 years of prime drinking. (JD)" (2/2015) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Packed with layers of fig, raspberry and blackberry conf ...Read More »

2011 Herman Story "Late Bloomer" Grenache

93 points Vinous: "Bright ruby-red. Fresh red fruit and floral pastille scents are complicated by hints of smoky minerals, allspice and white pepper. Graceful, focused and alluringly sweet, displaying excellent focus to its fresh black raspberry, spicecake and lavender pastille flavors. This smooth, open-knit Grenache offers a suave blend of richness and finesse, with no excess fat. Finishes sappy and very long, with smooth tannins coming in slowly. Shows no sign of heat despite its 15.8% alcohol Owner/winemaker Russell From produces a wide range of rich and usually flambo ...Read More »

2012 Yangarra Estate "Old Vine" Grenache McLaren Vale

94 points James Halliday: "Scented elegance. Nothing overly sweet to the profile here. Redcurrant, cherry, aniseed, earth/spice. Tangy. Not thick or dense, but it makes an impression. Tannin is internally routed in a completely seamless/velvety fashion." K&L Notes: This tiny production wine (just 574cs) is from Yangarra estate's almost 70 year old Grenache vines. Planted in 1946, these non-trellised, head trained vines grow in deep weathered sand stone soils. They are dry farmed and produce limited yields of beautifully aromatic, complex and layered fruit. After farming these old vines organic... Read More »

2006 Villa Creek "Denner Vineyard" Paso Robles Garnacha

91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and fleshy, intense and concentrated. Full-bodied, with wild berry, blackberry and black cherry fruit that's well-defined, ending with a nice hint of underbrush and fresh earth. Grenache. Drink now through 2013." (03/09) 90 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Alluring aromas of raspberry and cherry preserves, with gentle spiciness and floral notes adding complexity. Pliant, mid-weight red fruit and succulent herb flavors betray no rough edges or tannins. Like a turbo-charged pinot noir, with... Read More »

2010 Herman Story "On the Road" Central Coast Grenache

89 points Wine Spectator: "A plush, opulent style that emphasizes ripeness, capturing, though not taming, the essence of plump, racy Grenache. The coarse texture provides a small quibble. Drink now through 2018." (12/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "At first, the 2010 On The Road is beautifully focused, with great purity and nuance. Sweet red cherries, roses, mint, anise and spices all come together nicely in this flashy, extroverted wine. Here, too, the alcohol is evident at times, but texturally the wine is quite beautiful. The 2010 is 100% Grenache aged in French oak barrels, 40% new. Anticipated maturity: ...Read More »
