2016 Aquitania "Lazuli" Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley
Top Pick!
93 points Vinous: "A Cabernet Sauvignon from Maipo that spent 16 months in French barrels, one-third of them new. Cherry red in color. The fragrant nose includes herbs, mint and menthol with fresh black currant. Very classic in style but restrained on the palate, delivering fine, polished tannins, just the right acidity and a finish with a hint of pyrazine. A delicate wine with a notably intense aftertaste.

2016 Ledge "MCA Cuvée" Paso Robles Red Blend (Elsewhere $40) (Elsewhere $40)
Top Pick!
93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The value play from this estate is the 2016 MCA Cuvée, which is made from a kitchen sink blend of 30% Zinfandel, 25% Petite Sirah, and 15% each of Syrah, Tannat, and Cinsault. Its vivid ruby/purple color is followed by a ripe, lush, sexy wine that has loads of black and blue fruits, plenty of spice and flower incense aromas, medium to full body, terrific purity, and a great finish. It’s a smoking good wine to enjoy over the coming 5-6 years, if not longer. I continue to love the wines from the up and coming Mark Adams, who pulls...
