2009 E. Guigal "Brune et Blonde" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival, Previously $60)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Possessing additional richness, the 2009 Cote Rotie Brune et Blonde boasts rocking cassis, scorched earth and chocolate to go with more classic cured meats, mineral and violet-like nuances that emerge with time in the glass. Full-bodied, gorgeously pure, with a core of sweet fruit, it too will totally thrill over the coming decade or more. One of the reference point estates for top quality wines in the world today, the family run Guigal operation was created in 1946 by Etienne Guigal.

2009 E. Guigal Hermitage (Pre-Arrival, Previously $65)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big, massive and rich effort that needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years, the inky colored 2009 Hermitage reveals terrific aromatics of cassis, blackberry, smoked herbs, graphite and seared meats. Full-bodied, concentrated, locked and loaded, it's another 30+ year wine from this team that readers should purchase by the case. 93+ points.

2010 d'Arenberg "Dead Arm" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $60+)

(2/2014) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Dead Arm Shiraz has slightly evolving blackberry notes wafting over a core of forest fruit coulis and dried mulberries accented by suggestions of sandalwood, Indian spices and dried Mediterranean herbs.

Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors are given an exotic character by notes of violet pastille and star anise. Supple and expansive on the firm, gripping, intensely spicy finish.

2014 Andrew Murray "Tous les Jours" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

Praise for the last vintage of this wine from Antonio Galloni: "A rich, boisterous wine, the 2013 Syrah Tous Les Jours is all about fruit and texture. Dark red cherry, plum, black pepper and spice notes are all pushed forward in a Syrah that captures the generous personality of the wines of Santa Ynez. The style is bold and intense, with considerable up-front fruit and terrific overall balance. Once again, the Tous Les Jours delivers superb quality and value." (06/2015)

2010 Zaca Mesa Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The first winery to plant Syrah in the county continues to produce powerful but layered expressions. This delivers rich aromas of cherry, stewed plum and blackberry alongside sage and a wisp of vanilla. On the palate, it starts rich, until bright acidity and tannins bring balance amidst mocha and blackberry jam flavors and an oak-powered vanilla finish." (2/2015)

2012 Domaine Michel & Stéphane Ogier "La Rosine" Collines Rhodaniennes (Previously $32)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from a steep granite hillside near the village of Tupin-et-Semons, just on the outskirts of Côte Rôtie, the 2012 La Rosine Syrah VDP is 100% Syrah that was brought up in mostly older barrels. It’s a beautiful wine that, unsurprisingly, bares more than a passing resemblance to a high-quality Côte Rôtie from the southern part of the appellation. Sweet raspberry, licorice, spice and crushed rock-like qualities flow nicely to a medium-bodied, sexy, supple 2012 that has outstanding purity of fruit and a terrific finish.

Thick, unctuous, full-bodied and shockingly concentrated in the vintage, it should be reasonably approachable on release but evolve gracefully. (JD)" (12/2015) Jancis Robinson: "Blackish crimson.

2013 Melville "Estate - Verna's" Santa Barbara County Syrah

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another blockbuster is the 2013 Syrah Verna's, which comes from a vineyard located north of the Sta. Rita Hills, near Los Alamos. It was 70% destemmed and aged 10 months in neutral oak. It reveals terrific notes of cassis, peppered meats, blackberries, licorice and wood smoke to go with a full-bodied, ripe, yet beautifully balanced and layered feel on the palate. Given all the Syrahs and Pinot Noirs from Santa Barbara going for three times the price, the quality here is remarkable.

Made from 100% Syrah that saw 16 months in 70% new French oak, it's the greatest vintage of this cuvee I've tasted and it offers off the hook notes of creme de cassis, melted licorice, caramelized meats, pepper and crushed flowers.

The wine is surprisingly appealing now, partly thanks to a strong core of sweet fruit, but will obviously benefit from cellaring."

Always the most structured and tannic of the three single vineyard releases, in this case, the wine’s wealth of fruit and texture almost completely hide its tannic grip and underlying structure.

2014 FRAM Shiraz Swartland

91 points Wine Spectator: "The 2014 Shiraz has a well defined bouquet, what you might call "cool" Shiraz with mint and fennel-tinged black fruit that is precise and focused. The palate is very nicely structured with a killer line of acidity that maintains precision and poise. It's not a fruit-driven, flamboyant Shiraz, more Cornas-like with a structured, grippy finish. This is excellent, as cerebral as it is pleasurable. (NM)" (11/2015)

2014 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Both the Pavillon and l’Ermite see a touch more new oak, with the wine aged 18 months in 30% new French oak barrels. The 2014 Ermitage le Pavillon will without a doubt be one of the top two to three wines in the vintage; it offers an incredibly granite character in its burning embers, graphite, crème de cassis and campfire-like bouquet. Big, concentrated, full-bodied, thick and yet still with the always present hedonistic slant of this cuvee, it will need 4-5 years of cellaring and have three or more decades of longevity. Looking at the 2014 whites from ...Read More »

2013 Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage

91 points Vinous: "Bright purple. Energetic black raspberry, cherry, Asian spices and olive paste on the seductively perfumed nose. Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering juicy red and dark berry liqueur flavors and a suave note of candied violet. Picks up spiciness and smokiness with air and finishes on a sweet dark berry note, with good nervy cut and floral persistence. Maxime Graillot told me that this wine is made from a site in Chassis that was planted 45 years ago and has never been treated with any chemicals. -- Josh Raynolds (JR)" (2/2015)

2013 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is likely the last vintage from this vineyard, which the family winery seemingly mastered in this bottling. There’s an underlying umami-driven smoked meat backbone to the nose that also shows bold cherry blossom, olallieberry, pepper, dried herbs and blackberry-soy sauce. The palate is complex yet doesn’t overpower, with bits of purple flowers, blueberry, black pepper and menthol." (12/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another blockbuster is the 2013 Syrah Verna's, which comes from a vineyard located north of the Sta. Rita Hills, near Los Alamos. It was 70% destemmed and aged 10 ...Read More »

2014 M. Chapoutier "Les Varonniers" Crozes-Hermitage Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorite Crozes Hermitage is Chapoutier’s les Varonniers which comes from a cool, west-facing terroir located just to the west of the famed Bessards lieu-dit in Hermitage. The inky color of the 2014 Crozes Hermitage les Varonniers is accompanied by Hermitage-like notes of graphite, currants, black raspberry, pepper and liquid violets. These give way to a medium to full-bodied red that has juicy acidity, excellent purity of fruit and ripe tannin. It has more depth than most in the vintage and will have 10-15 years of overall longevity. (JD) ...Read More »

2012 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Coming from one of Ballard Canyon’s premiere vineyards, this offers aromas of black cherry, wet black loam and morning dew on sage. The mouthfeel is all silk, and flavors are savory, with elderberries, crushed sage and wild mint." (2/2015) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(made with 50% whole clusters and raised in concrete tanks): Opaque ruby. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit aromas are lifted and sharpened by cracked pepper and fresh flowers. Spicy and penetrating on the palate, with juicy blackcurrant and boysenberry flavors framed and lifted by tangy acidity. This suave, powerful, ...Read More »

2012 Alain Voge "Vieilles Vignes" Cornas Top Pick!
2012 Alain Voge "Vieilles Vignes" Cornas

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similar in style, yet deeper and richer, the 2012 Cornas Les Vieilles Vignes comes from 8-9 different parcels and sees roughly 20 months in 15% new French oak barrels. It’s a blockbuster-styled Cornas that doesn’t pull any punches in its sexy, ripe and textured personality. Black raspberry, cassis, licorice, ground herbs and sweet oak all emerge from this polished 2012, and while it dishes out plenty of pleasure now due to its wealth of fruit, it will have 10-15 years of longevity. These awesome wines are made by Alberic Mazoyer. They show relatively mo ...Read More »

2013 Ojai Santa Barbara County Syrah

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Adam's entry-level Syrah is the 2013 Syrah Santa Barbara County and it's a year in, year out sensational value. It's ruby/purple color is followed by textbook black and blue fruits, violets, salty minerality and cracked pepper-like aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, textured and seamless, with nicely integrated acidity and a full mid-palate ... (JD)" (8/2015) Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Nicely defined, moderately fruity and showing enough mildly gamy, distantly peppery spice to stay within clear varietal lines, this one is slightly reined-in vis-à-vis ripeness yet hit ...Read More »
