Evodia Aragon Garnacha 2016

89 Wine Advocate
91 Jeb Dunnuck
(2/21/2018) "Another project between Eric Solomon and the Roussillon's Jean-Marc Lafage, the 2016 Evodia comes from higher elevation vineyards and is mostly Garnacha (there's 5% Syrah) aged in a mix of tank and demi-muids. This deep ruby/purple colored is a gorgeous, naked expression of Grenache that just knocks it out of the park. Blackberries, blueberries, pepper, licorice and hints of asphalt all emerge from this plump, sexy, opulent, and shockingly concentrated wine that has incredible charm and character. It's the best 10-dollar bottle of wine I've tasted in years."

"A blend of fruit from both the Saar and the middle Mosel (vineyards surrounding Piesport and Bernkastel) this lovely value Riseling darts and dances on the palate with Margarita-like kicks of salt and lime.

Zenato "Alanera" Veronese Rosso 2014

93 James Suckling
90 Our Score
(10/2018) With rich, plush flavors of black cherry, blackberry, hazelnut, milk chocolate and baking spice, the 2014 Zenato "Alanera" is flat-out delicious from the moment the cork is popped. A blend of traditional Veronese grapes - 55% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 10% Corvinone - and 5% each Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Half of the fruit was dried in the same method that produces Amarone, giving the wine an alluring complexity and depth. If you've been a fan of Allegrini's Palazzo della Torre, you'll love Alanera. Heck, if you're a fan of interesting reds in general, you ought to check this one out.

Offering a touch of green and a hint of botrytis, this round and fleshy dry white displays flavors of baked citrus, apple and pear along with just a smidge of button mushroom. Yummy and fun!

(10/2018) Fans of Txakolina and other crisp, high mineral whites, we have a gem for you! This bottling from Bodega K5 is made from 100% Hondarrabi Zuri. While many wines from the region are bottled with a slight effervescence, this one is totally still. The "Pilota" has more body and depth than most Txakolinas while retaining a bright, crisp structure with mineral-driven flavors that linger on a long, delicious finish. Oysters, shrimp, Thai food, the couch....it's all good with this beauty!

Chateau Saint Roch "Kerbuccio" Maury Sec Rouge 2015

Jeb Dunnuck goes bonkers over this one, and for good reason. Big and plush with bold black cherry flavors and serious concentration, the 2015 Kerbuccio is 20 pounds of viticultural fun in a 10 pound sack!
92 Our Score
94 Jeb Dunnuck
(12/12/2017) "Sporting a deep, inky color, the 2015 Maury Sec Kerbuccio is fabulous stuff, as well as a smoking value. Blackberry jam, roasted herbs, black licorice, tapenade and saddle leather give way to a rich, concentrated, seamless red that has moderate acidity, sweet tannin and a great finish. The blend is 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan, aged in 50% new demi-muids, and as I said when I tasted it from barrel, it's heavenly juice that tastes like it cost three times its price."

Conreria d'Scala Dei "Black Slate" Escaladei Priorat 2016

The latest gem from Eric Solomon's "Black Slate" series of single-village Priorat!
95 Jeb Dunnuck
(2/21/2018) "One of the gems in the Black Slate lineup is the 2016 Black Slate Escaladei which is 90% Garnacha, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Carinena, all of which spent 18 months in foudre and barrels. It offers an incredibly perfumed style as well as more red fruits, white flowers, kirsch, and beautiful minerality. With medium to full-bodied richness, a light, silky texture, and sweet tannin, it pretty much maxes out the QPR scale and is a gorgeous wine. 900 cases. Maturity: 2018 - 2023."

Audrey Wilkinson Hunter Valley Semillon 2016

91+ Our Score
(7/2018) If you've not experienced a young, well-made Hunter Valley Semillon, you are in for a treat! For the first 2 to 3 years of their lives, Semillons from Hunter Valley are lean and green, with more than a little bit of zip. Given 4 to 10 years of age, they develop a wonderful round texture and a complex array of secondary flavors including honey, nuts and distinct floral notes. For now, this 11.5% ABV offering is tight and brisk, giving intense citrus and green apple flavors along with lively acidity. Serve this wine with food, the same way you might do with a bone-dry Champagne. Great pairings include sushi, salads and spicy Thai.

(4/27/2018) "The 2016 Chardonnay is lovely, wafting from the glass with aromas of honeyed citrus, white flowers and struck match. On the palate, it's elegantly glossy, medium-bodied and pure, with lovely cut and a chalky, mouthwatering finish. It's still showing a touch of sulfur dioxide after bottling, so if you plan on drinking this Chardonnay in the near future I'd recommend giving it a short decant. Drink Date 2018 - 2024."

(10/2018) The wine, labeled Nineteen-Nineteen, comes from the oldest Grenache vines in the country, planted in the year 1919. Angela has turned out a beautifully expressive Grenache from these prized vines, with characteristics of both a traditional Chateauneuf-du-Pape and a soft, silky Pinot Noir. Soaring aromas and complex flavors of strawberries, wildflowers, dried herbs, torched orange peel and peppery spice notes will captivate the lucky taster. Enjoy now or, even better, lay this collector's item in your cellar for a few more years. (California)

(4/27/2018) "This white wine hits all the high notes with impeccable precision. The 2015 Chardonnay Collezione Privata shows two sides to the bouquet. On one hand you get generous fruit tones of apricot and preserved lemon with the opulent fullness that characterizes this excellent vintage. On the other hand, you get delicate notes of flint and brimstone that give the wine a linear sense of backbone and persistence. The mouthfeel is driven by freshness, medium build and a very long finish. This is a terrific Chardonnay from Tuscany. Drink Date: 2017 - 2026."

(10/2018) A delicious single-site Barolo Riserva for less than 40 bucks? Wow!

In a world of $100 Baroli, this seems almost too inexpensive! Drinkable now and through 2030.

Domaine Poulleau Pere & Fils Volnay 2016

93 Our Score
(10/2018) We visited Domaine Poulleau in late winter 2018 and can firmly state it is one of the smallest cellars we've ever been in! Both husband and wife, Thierry and Florence Poulleau, have full-time jobs. They work in their vineyards early in the morning and on weekends. Based in Volnay, they produce wonderful "hands-off" styled wines, with very little new oak. This delicious 2016 Volnay comes from seven different parcels. It will be best after 2020, but drinkers now will note deep red floral notes, dense black cherry and wild ripe strawberry tones, lifted acidity and a long, earthy finish. An excellent Burgundy at a very fair price.

(6/29/2018) "The 2016 Syrah la Serenne hails from two acres within the Boushey Vineyard and was fermented with between 66% and 100% whole clusters. The wine is already very complex, wafting from the glass with notes of grilled meat, dried lavender, pepper and candied peel. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and lavish, with a layered mid-palate, fine-grained structuring tannins, sappy acids and a sapid, saline finish. Drink Date 2018 - 2035." (Washington)

Conti Costanti Brunello di Montalcino 2013

(5/1/2018) "Delicately scented, this offers underbrush, pressed violet and wild berry aromas. It's medium-bodied and loaded with elegance, delivering crushed raspberry, Morello cherry, licorice and a hint of pipe tobacco set against taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity provides balance. It's a bit austere at this stage but will develop beautifully. Drink 2023-2043. Editors' Choice."

Betz "Pere de Famille" Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

97 Wine Advocate
(6/30/2017) "A cellar selection from different sites in the Columbia Valley, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Pere de Famille is deeper in color than the Clos de Betz and offers fabulous notes of crème de cassis, graphite, crushed flowers and violets. Just screaming Cabernet, it offers full-bodied richness, incredible purity of fruit, and ultra-fine tannin, all of which make for a sensational Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon that's going to evolve for upwards of two decades."
