Clos i Terrasses "Clos Erasmus" Priorat 2014

97 Wine Advocate
(10/28/2016) "There is a little more Syrah in the blend of the 2014 Clos Erasmus, where it reached around 30% to complement the majority of Garnacha. As is the norm, the wine matured for some 18 months before bottling, with most of the volume in French oak barrels, 40% of which are renewed each vintage, but there are also one or two amphorae. I tasted it next to the 2013 and as the 2013 required so much attention, it took some time to get to the 2014. It showed a bit shy at first, but when I finally came back to it, I found that it had really blossomed with a mixture of violets, ground, smoky meat and black raspberries. The slight increase in Syrah was noticeable, but it somehow also seemed to increase the voice of the slate in the bottle. The palate is medium to full-bodied with wonderful balance and elegance combined with inner strength. This is simply terrific. 3,000 bottles were filled at the end of May 2016. Drink Date: 2016 - 2025."

Ettore Germano "Lazzarito" Barolo Riserva 2009

95 Wine Advocate
95 Wine Advocate
(6/28/2015) "The 2009 Barolo Riserva Lazzarito sees a long 60-day maceration period and up to three years in large oak casks. The care and attention of that special craftsmanship comes through loud and clear. This is a gorgeous wine that delivers careful concentration that never overpowers the wine's delicate nuances. The effect is linear, sharp and tight. The lively finish is driven by menthol, balsam and exotic herbs. Drink Date: 2015 - 2030."

Tenuta delle Terre Nere "Prephyloxera Vigna di Don Peppino" Etna Rosso 2014

96+ Vinous, Ian D'Agata
(12/2016) "Luminous red. Red cherry, marzipan, raspberry jam, quinine, blood orange and a dusting of powdered minerals on the drop-dead gorgeous nose. Wonderfully juicy, sweet and gripping in the mouth, showing superb nuance and verve to the soft, fleshy red fruit, candied violet and balsamic flavors. Finishes vibrant and with noteworthy length; broad but polished tannins coat the entire mouth. An Etna Rosso of memorable purity and precision, this is great to drink already but promises greater things still to come. Made from a parcel of old pre-phylloxeric vines that grow in the Calderara Sottana vineyard (one row of which actually grows in the Santo Spirito cru), but at 100+ years of age, the Don Peppino vines are much older than those used for the Calderara Sottana bottling. In fact, this wine is a textbook example of the importance of old vines, because as delightful as the Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso is, the Don Peppino is vastly superior due to its softer, nobler tannins and greater depth and complexity of fruit. Drinking Window: 2018 - 2026."

Domaine Pierre Gonon Saint-Joseph Rouge 2014

93-94 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(3/2016) "Opaque ruby. A heady, smoke- and spice-tinged bouquet evokes fresh dark fruits, olive paste and potpourri, while an olive nuance comes up slowly. Fine-grained and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated black and blue fruit flavors that spread out and become spicier on the back half. Powerful yet graceful in character, finishing with outstanding energy and smooth, harmonious tannins that fold quickly into the wine's energetic fruit."

Domaine Pierre Gonon "Les Oliviers" Saint-Joseph Blanc 2014

93 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(3/2016) "Light, bright yellow. Poached pear, white peach, honey and lemon pith on the intensely perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Pliant, deeply concentrated pit and citrus fruit and honeysuckle flavors are complemented by hints of succulent herbs and fennel; bitter quinine adds back-end cut. Closes with powerful punch and serious persistence, leaving behind a note of candied citrus fruits. This bottling has an admirable track record for cellaring."

Knez Winery "Cerise Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2014

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(2/2016) "Dark red and purplish hued fruits, wild flowers, mint, spices and rose petal notes meld together in the 2014 Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard. The Cerise is deceptively medium in body, but it packs serious intensity. Expressive, floral-infused aromatics give the Cerise its inner sweetness and perfume, while beams of underlying tannin give the wine its shape. This is another superb wine from Knez. Drink 2017 - 2022."

Tenuta delle Terre Nere "Guardiola" Etna Rosso 2014

95+ Vinous, Ian D'Agata
(12/2016) "Good full red. The captivating nose combines raspberry, red currant, minerals, violet and truffle and has a penetrating quality. Then sweet, fresh and juicy, showing outstanding purity and a Nebbiolo-like texture to the red fruit, floral and sweet spice flavors. Impeccably balanced, fine-grained Etna Rosso that finishes extremely long, vibrant and suave. Guardiola is the Etna cru that most often delivers Barolo-like reds. It's also a relatively cool site whose wines really benefit in warmer vintages, when Nerello Mascalese's anything-but-shy tannins are able to reach optimal ripeness, giving a highly structured but magically polished wine. I wouldn't be surprised to see this merit an even higher score in four or five years' time. Drinking Window: 2018 - 2025."
