  2. Domaine Grand Nicolet Rasteau Vieilles Vignes

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#58683

    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)

  5. 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

  6. Chalk Hill Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

    2021 / 750 ml. | Item#58798

    WS9393 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 12/22
    William Foley grounded his wine empire in Sonoma County with the purchase of the Chalk Hill Estate in 2010. Michael Beaulac, who joined the team in 2021, produced this wine from other Foley family vineyards in Carneros, Chalk Hill and the Sonoma Coast. In it, he captures the chamomile character of chardonnay, showcasing the variety’s gentle fruit rather than its tropical ripeness. Scents of lemon cream and malt add to the wine’s richness.
    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2022
    Presents pear drop, Fuji apple, ripe Bartlett pear and lemon blossom details that are elegant and restrained, but they weave in and out on a light, fresh frame that’s quite impressive. Gains a savory element, thanks to a touch of toasted sesame seed. Drink now. 98,000 cases made. (MaryAnn Worobiec)

  7. 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)

  8. Penley Estate Phoenix Cabernet Sauvignon

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#58688

    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2022
    An elegant version, with firm earthy notes to the star anise, green cardamom and cigar box spiciness, backed by a touch of Dutch cocoa powder. Reveals spiced plum, cassis and kirsch flavors that are plump and velvety, with a long finish. Drink now through 2030. 7,000 cases imported. (MaryAnn Worobiec)
    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, November 4, 2021
    This is a bright, youthful cabernet with aromas of plums, redcurrants, tobacco and earth. Picked early for freshness. Medium-bodied with little oak impact, a red-plum core and a juicy, drinkable feel. Drink now. Screw cap.
    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2022
    This is a rich, somewhat oak-forward vintage of Phoenix. The plush blackberry, mint and peppery spice is overlain by the vanilla-chocolate barrel influence. Tannins are powerful but fine and spice laden, adding gravitas to an otherwise easy-drinking, tangy Cab with regional and varietal expression. (Christina Pickard)

  10. 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)

  11. Hermann J. Wiemer Cabernet Franc

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#58525

    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)
    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.

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#57643

    JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 4, 2022
    Aromas of black and red currants, dried herbs, black licorice and figs. Medium-to full-bodied with velvety tannins. Juicy and fruity at the start, but lovely ground spice emerges through the long finish. Well structured and harmonious. 39% merlot, 32% petit sirah, 19% cabernet sauvignon and 10% malbec. Best after 2025.
