Casa Castillo El Molar

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 58190

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2022
The perfect Mediterranean vintage produced an outstanding Garnacha. The 2020 El Molar fermented with 35% full clusters and matured in a combination of 500-liter barrels and 5,000-liter foudres for one year. The wine is very young and tender; it feels more delicate despite having a little more alcohol than the 2019 (it’s 15%) and with a slightly lower pH (3.49). It’s super aromatic, extroverted and expressive, floral, elegant and complex. There is great balance, and the wine feels fresher and less ripe; it’s refreshing and has a core of minerality and super fine tannins with pungent flavors. There is precision, elegance and balance, the three words that define the vintage. All the wines are very good value, but this is a steal. 40,000 bottles were filled in March 2022. (Luis Gutiérrez)

Marietta Old Vine Red

Lot Number 73 / 750 ml.

Item #: 58449

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jul 2022
The NV OVR Lot 73 is composed mainly of Zinfandel with smaller portions of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Carignan and Barbera. Medium ruby, it offers intense red cherry, blood orange and apricot perfume with accents of rooibos tea leaves, red licorice, saline, lilac and loads of spicy nuances. The medium-bodied palate is light on its feet with soft tannins, bursts of refreshing acidity and detailed amaro accents on the long finish. This is so easy to drink! (Erin Brooks)
JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, October 5, 2022
Lovely aromas of pitted red cherries, black cherries, moss and walnut. Medium-to full-bodied with gentle tannins. Nice intensity with lovely length. Juicy, with so much herbal complexity and black fruit. Predominantly zinfandel, with syrah, petite sirah, grenache, barbera, carignan. Drink now.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 31, 2023
Tastes like the gutsy field blends popularized by Italian immigrants back in the day, with potent wild berry, licorice and smoky cracked pepper flavors that finish with broad-shouldered tannins. Zinfandel. Drink now through 2029. 16,000 cases made. (Tim Fish)

Hermann J. Wiemer Cabernet Franc

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 58525

JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, April 28, 2022
Complex nose of herbs, savory notes and redcurrants. Quite a crisp palate, but with plenty of red and black currants. Good depth and healthy tannins are packed into the rather sleek body, together with lively acidity. Drink now.
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2022
Cohesive aromas of black cherry, black plum and tilled earth are lifted by savory accents of dewy herbs and crushed red pepper flakes in this well balanced Cabernet Franc. It shows smooth tannins on the palate that support the juicy berry and plum flavors, with a polish and poise to it all that makes it a delight to drink. (Alexander Peartree)

Item #: 58556

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, June 2, 2021
Clean and deep aromas of blackcurrants and blackberries follow through to a full to medium body with very fine-grained tannins that add a mineral touch to the finish. Not complex, but very approachable and delicious. Drink now.

Cambria Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 58576

VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2022
The 2020 Chardonnay Katherine’s Vineyard is bright and wonderfully saline, with plenty of mineral and savory accents. Citrus peel, mint, white pepper, chalk and dried flowers open nicely with a bit of time. There’s terrific energy and plenty of cut. Most of this fruit is sourced from the own-rooted vines first planted in 1971. (Antonio Galloni)
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2022
Dried lime peel, seared lemon pith, white flower and a hint of grass show on the nose of this bottling. There’s an earthy, crushed rock element to the palate, where dried apple and herb flavors also arise. (Matt Kettmann)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2023
A supple and creamy white, with notes of nutmeg and toasted, salted hazelnut that complement lemon curd, fresh peach and crisp Fuji apple flavors. Drink now. 45,702 cases made. (MaryAnn Worobiec)
JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 8/29/2022
The 2020 Chardonnay Katherine’s Vineyard is terrific and shockingly good given the quantities produced. Burgundian-like aromas of stone fruits, chalky minerality, honeyed flowers, and brioche all define the nose, and it’s medium-bodied, with a supple, rounded texture, integrated acidity, and a great finish. (Jeb Dunnuck)

JD90+90–92 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 8/28/2018
The old vine cuvée is the 2017 Rasteau Vieilles Vignes, based on 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre that’s brought up in older barrels. Blackberries, toasted spice, smoked earth and licorice notes all flow to a rich, powerful, concentrated Rasteau that has ripe, present tannins and a great finish. It’s certainly going to be an outstanding wine. (Jeb Dunnuck)
WE8787 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2020
Densely concentrated plum and black cherry flavors are muted by savory notes of crushed earth and tobacco and in this full-bodied blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It’s a rounded, open-knit wine that’s showing glimpses of maturity, so it’s best to enjoy now–2024. (Anna Lee C. Iijima)

Pursued by Bear Bear Cub Red Wine

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 59078

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2023
This is no “baby.” This bold, rich Cabernet Sauvignon-driven blend has grown-up elegance, from its aromas of dewberries, dark raspberries, saline and rose petals, to its Mikhail Baryshnikov-like balance. In between, look for flavors like blackberry fruit jellies, thyme and dark chocolate. (Michael Alberty)
