2015 Guigal Côte-Rotie "Château d'Ampuis" (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another absolutely off-the-charts barrel sample is the 2015 Côte Rôtie Chateau d’Ampuis, which comes from a blend of seven estate vineyards. Its inky black color is followed by profound notes of crème de cassis, toasted spices, violets and smoked meats. Full-bodied, impeccably balanced, concentrated and tannic, and yet always elegant and precise, it’s certainly a match for the three single-vineyard releases. As always, my visit with Marcel and Philippe Guigal is one of the highlights of my entire time spent working in the no ...Read More »

2015 Wind Gap Sonoma Coast Syrah (Previously $38)

94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Syrah (Sonoma Coast) is a very serious wine. Then again, in 2015 proprietor Pax Mahle did not bottle his Armaugh, Majik or Walker-Vine Hill vineyard designates. The little fruit he was able to harvest off those sites when into this, the appellation-level Syrah. A big, tannic wine, the 2015 possesses notable depth and structure. Black fruit, smoke, iron, blood and savory herbs are some of the signatures in this bold, pungent Syrah. This is one of the many gems in the Wind Gap range. (AG)" (03/2017)

There’s a fruit core of singing lyricism, both vivid and fresh without being acidulous; the wine is tannic enough to give its fruit shape and gravitas but not roughness or austerity; and it has overtones which bring light and shade to the wine via faint notes of smoke, of cleansing bitterness, of the saltiness which is such a hallmark of parts of Crozes, and ...Read More »

Generous and pliant on the palate, with no hard edges and striking aromatics, the 2017 is shaping up to be a real beauty.

Its glass staining purple color is followed by a smorgasbord of Syrah goodness; blackberry jam, plums, exotic flowers, hints of tapenade, scrub brush and violets all literally soar from the glass. This gives way to a full-bodied, unctuous, and concentrated 2015 that has sweet tannin, notable freshness and a great finish.

Both were serious barrel samples possessing terrific notes of blackcurrants, cracked black peppercorns, meat and olives, full-bodied richness, solid density and ripe, yet certainly present, tannin.

2016 Stolpman "Estate" Ballard Canyon Syrah

90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made with 50% whole clusters, the 2016 Syrah Estate Grown sports a deep purple/opaque color as well youthful notes of black raspberries, plums, peppery herbs and smoked earth. Ripe, sexy and polished, with terrific tannin quality, it's going to be a charmer to drink in its youth. " (08/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Stolpman's largest cuvée, amounting to some 4,400 cases, is the keenly priced 2016 Syrah Estate, which reveals a classic nose of blackberry, violets, rose petal, cracked pepper and grilled meat.

2015 Thorn-Clarke "Eden Trail" Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia (Previously $20)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Thick and lush, with clove-scented red and black fruit flavors, showing accents of cedar, sandalwood and gingerbread on a seamless body. The tannins provide some velvety traction in the background, but the finish seems to go on forever, with waves of spice and green tea. Drink now through 2027. (MW)" (12/2017) 91 points James Halliday: "Dripping with boysenberries, blackberries and spiced plums. Full-bodied yet bright as anything with some grip to the drying tannins, slippery oak, savoury yet sweet fruited at the same time." ...Read More »

2015 B. Leighton "Olson Brothers Vineyard" Yakima Valley Syrah (Previously $45)

97 points James Suckling: "This has impressive focus, depth and precision. Really complex pepper, spice-dusted blood plums, cocoa powder and blackberries. The tannins are super succulent, firm but not aggressive. The depth and fluid power here is staggering. Intensely structured and deeply flavored with blood plums, cocoa powder and graphite. Big on wow factor, this is a great wine that needs another 3-4 years to build out to full potential.

2016 Guy Farge "Passion de Terrasse" Saint-Joseph Rouge

88-91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Saint Joseph Passion De Terrasses comes from 100-year-old vines planted in granite soils. It’s less exotic than the Terroir de Granite release and has more classic red and black fruits, spice, dried earth and hints of bacon fat on the nose. Rich, medium-bodied, nicely textured and with ripe tannin, drink it on release and over the following decade." (01/2018)

2015 Domaine Belle "Cuvée Louis Belle" Crozes-Hermitage

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I also loved the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Louis Belle which saw a traditional vinification followed by 20 months in French oak. Blackberry, currants, blueberries, violets and hints of black pepper give way to a rich, expansive, opulent Syrah that has sweet tannin and a great finish. Give it a few years of bottle age and enjoy over the following decade or more. I always love the wines from this tiny estate and they’ve made a number of brilliant wines in 2015.

2015 Melville "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

92 points Vinous: "The 2015 Syrah Estate (Sta. Rita Hills) is very pretty, but like all of these 2015s, it also needs time to be at its best. Floral and lifted, with tons of energy and tannin, the 2015 is shaping up to be a real beauty. Hints of lavender, licorice, smoke, plum and black cherry build into the super-expressive finish in this soulful midweight Syrah from Melville. (AG)" (09/2017) 91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Syrah Sta. Rita Hills is another terrific wine that's always a good value. Black olives, pepper, gamey meats and both kirsch and ...Read More »

2017 Torbreck "Woodcutter's" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Woodcutter's Shiraz offers up notes of crushed black plums and black cherries with hints of tar, spice box and licorice. Unashamedly full-bodied, soft and well-balanced, it has a great concentration of ripe black fruit and baking spice flavors, finishing with good persistence. Drink now-2021 (LPB)" (08/2017)

2015 Delas Freres "Chante-Perdrix" Cornas

95 points Decanter: "Delas Frères was founded in 1835 and merged with Champagne Deutz in 1977. In 1993, both were absorbed by Louis Roederer which now owns this 30ha estate, encompassing vineyards in Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and St-Joseph. Chante Perdrix is farmed by a partner grower, highlighting the quality fruit available to them. This single- parcel wine, made by Jacques Grange and Claire Darnaud-McKerrow has spent 12 to 14 months in oak barrels. 15,000 bottles are made.

2016 Penfolds "RWT" Shiraz Barossa Valley

98 points Bob Campbell: "Deep, dense, almost inky purple/red colour, with a glorious bouquet of mocha, grilled nuts of various kinds, great concentration and density, which saturates the palate and lasts for minutes on the aftertaste. Smoky, toasty, nutty, graphite and roast meat aromas; charcoal and bitumen, but not fruit! The fruit is there in spadefuls but it is submerged behind a curtain of complexity. An enormously impressive wine, the texture almost improbably supple and smooth in spite of the welter of tannin. Outstanding wine. (HH)" (08/2018) 9 ...Read More »

2015 Schwarz "Nitschke Block" Shiraz Barossa South Australia (Previously $25)

95 points James Halliday: "The vines were planted by Jason Schwarz's parents in '68. Picked in two portions, the first 14 Feb, 20% whole bunches, wild yeast open-fermented, 25 days on skins, matured in French hogsheads (25% new); the second picked 24 Feb, 25% whole bunches, 20 days on skins, matured in one new French hogsheads and puncheon, the bunches foot-stomped at the end of fermentation. Sophisticated winemaking, the only question the amount of French oak apparent now, but will regress with more time in bottle." (08/2017) K&L Notes: From a vineyar ...Read More »
