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."

Syncline "Subduction Red" Columbia Valley Red 2015

92 Our Score
92 Wine Enthusiast
(2/1/2017) "Editors' Choice - Syrah makes up just over half of this wine, with the balance Mourvèdre, Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan and Counoise. Perfumed aromas of fresh blue and purple fruit, spice and herb lead to achingly pure fruit flavors that persist effortlessly on the finish. It's a one wine charm offensive with a heart-stopping mouthfeel."

Dow's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2011

When it comes to Port value, we've been loving the ready-to-drink "Late Bottled Vintage" offerings. Check out this beauty from Dow's!

(11/2016) " (Best Buy) This offers more immediate pleasures than the vintage Dow's declared in 2011-it comes across as an idealized LBV rather than a baby Vintage. Formidable in its black density and red spice, fragrant with persimmon-like scents and tannins that have the grit of stone-ground chocolate, this is compellingly drinkable and delicious. Stock up for the holidays."

Mas d'En Compte "Black Slate" Porrera Priorat 2014

92 Wine Advocate
(10/28/2016) "Part of the collection from different villages from Priorat, Cellar Cal Pla produced a 2014 Black Slate Porrera, which is a blend of 50% Garnacha with 40% Cariñena and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a village wine from 20- to 30-year-old vines on slate soils fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats and matured in 225- and 300-liter oak barrels (80% French oak, 20% Hungarian) for one year. The nose is beautiful, combining violets, a hint of beef blood, something ashy and an organic, soil note, developing a smoky bacon twist with time in the glass. The palate shows good integration of the oak, better than in the majority of wines from this winery. Beautiful flowers appear with time and made me go back to the glass again and again. Drink Date: 2016 - 2020."

Bodegas Caro "Amancaya" Mendoza Gran Reserva Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

90+ Wine Advocate
93 James Suckling
92 Wine Enthusiast
(12/31/2016) "Editors' Choice - Rooty spicy aromas of earthy berry and leather give this Malbec-Cabernet blend a sense of quality from early on. A fully ripe but pure palate has some juice to it, while flavors of black currant, black plum, blackberry and chocolate aren't just heavy and oaky. True on the finish; drink through 2023."

Marietta Cellars "Christo - Lot Number 3" Sonoma-Mendocino Red Blend NV

91 Wine Advocate
(10/29/2015) "There are approximately 12,000 cases of the NV Christo Lot 3, which is a hedonistic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Petite Sirah and a touch of Viognier to uplift the aromatics. This is, again, aged in neutral oak for two years and a blend of three vintages: 2011, 2012 and 2013. This is my favorite of all of these wines - a wine of exceptional purity and intensity and plenty of character, as this one is 70% Syrah and the rest the other three grapes. It tips the scales at a lofty 15.3% alcohol, but it's well hidden behind a cascade of blackberry and cassis fruit, roasted meats, steak tartare, licorice and Provençal herbs. It's a big boy, and that's exactly the way they want it. This wine should drink well for 7-8 years, but it's meant to be consumed in its exuberant youthfulness. Drink Date: 2015 - 2023."

Columbia Crest "H3 - Les Chevaux" Horse Heaven Hills Red 2013

90 Wine Spectator
(6/15/2016) "Supple, expressive and inviting, layering dark berry, licorice and toast flavors with specks of pepper and floral. Lingers easily against refined tannins. Merlot, Syrah, Viognier and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2018."
