2014 Elderton

  • Shiraz / Cabernet
  • E Series
  • Barossa Valley
  • Australia
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Deep garnet-purple, this is a blend of 90% Shiraz and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that opens to a very spicy nose of cloves, vanilla and cinnamon stick with a baked blueberry core.  The medium-bodied palate offers tons of spicy fruit that is deftly framed by velvety tannins before finishing long."

2014 Yalumba

  • Grenache
  • Old Bush Vine
  • Barossa
  • Australia
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Vivid red. High-pitched aromas of fresh red berries, candied rose, blood orange and white pepper; smells a lot like an elegant Pinot Noir to me. Clean, racy and vibrant on the palate, with the redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors conveying a weightless quality. Spicy, brisk and gently tannic on the clinging finish. This distinctly graceful wine is extremely easy to drink now but it should age nicely on its balance. These vines were reportedly planted between 1898 and 1973."

NV Alvear

  • Pedro Ximenez
  • Solera 1927
  • Montilla
  • Spain
  • Red
  • 375 ml

"The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer."

2015 Orin Swift

  • Proprietary Blend
  • Abstract
  • Napa Valley
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This is a blend of Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah. This is a beauty and a great price for a wine of this quality. The wine has an opaque ruby/purple color, gorgeous nose of creosote, kirsch liqueur and cassis with a touch of licorice, Provençal herbs and pepper. Delicious, full-bodied, unctuously textured, thick and juicy, this mouth-filling, big wine cuts a broad swath across the palate, but is never hot or awkward."

2013 Quinta Do Crasto

  • Proprietary Blend
  • Reserva
  • Douro
  • Portugal
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This is a fine success. This opens very elegantly. It is beautifully balanced, with a feel of sophistication and refinement--which is pretty much how most of Crasto's wines show these days. Of Crasto's submissions, though, this might well have the most character and complexity this year. As refined and approachable as it seemed to be on opening, this developed steadily and impressively, tightening along the way. This is a terrific Old Vines Reserve."

2014 Raats Family

  • Cabernet Franc
  • Stellenbosch
  • South Africa
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This comes from the Raats family's oldest and highest vineyard grown in cooler conditions. It has an open and energetic aniseed-tinged bouquet that blossoms in the glass, hints of allspice and clove emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a harmonious, smooth entry, with touches of oregano and white pepper sprinkled over the long finish. It has just as much to offer."

2015 Bedrock Wine Co.

  • Proprietary Blend
  • Evangelho Vineyard Heritage
  • Contra Costa
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This is another highlight in this lineup. Sublime aromatics, red stone fruit and finessed tannins elevate the Evangelho. Nuanced to the core, this exudes class and pedigree. The Evangelho is not as obvious as some of the other wines in the range, but it is among the most beautiful."

2015 Powell & Son

  • GSM
  • Barossa Valley
  • Australia
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Blended of 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz and 20% Mataro, this displays a medium garnet-purple color and nose of baked cherries, raspberry preserves and warm plums with a smoky/chargrill undercurrent and savory touch of yeast extract. Full-bodied with concentrated flavors in the mouth, it has a solid backbone of firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and savory."

"With a deep garnet-purple color, this reveals cassis, black plums and charred earth notes with hints of cedar, dark chocolate, lavender and dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied and packed with muscular fruit on the palate, it has a firm backbone of grainy tannins and a lively acid line carrying the fruit to a long, multilayered finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Mourvedre blend."

2014 Betz Family Winery

  • Proprietary Blend
  • Clos de Betz
  • Columbia Valley
  • Washington
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Certainly one of the top Merlot dominated wines in Washington state. Giving up lots of blackberry, plum, bouquet garni and licorice, it’s full-bodied and layered on the palate, with a sexy, hedonistic vibe that’s common in this big, rich vintage. It has good density through the middle and will keep nicely, but it should also put a smile on your face early in its life as well."

2014 O'Shaughnessy

  • Merlot
  • Howell Mountain
  • Napa Valley
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"The 2014 Merlot, which is 100% Merlot, is actually one of the few truly great Merlots made in Napa Valley. (Pahlmeyer nails it with another one, but there are a few others.) This wine has terrific fruit intensity, big, deep, chocolate/mocha, black cherry and currant notes, and a large frame filled with extract, glycerin and juicy, chewy fruit. It is a sumptuous Merlot fruit bomb to drink over the next 10-15 years."

  • Proprietary Blend

  • Paso Robles
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Another sensational red which is mostly Grenache blended with 34% Mourvedre and 17% Syrah. Aged in 32% new barrels, its ruby color is followed by classic notes of black raspberries, toasted spice, dried flowers and hints of pepper. Full-bodied, supple and polished, with no hard edges and a seamless texture, it will stand up to a great Chateauneuf du Pape."

2015 Turley

  • Petite Syrah
  • Rattlesnake Ridge
  • Napa Valley
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"The 2015 Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge is the most reticent and tannic of these Petites. Then again, Rattlesnake Ridge sits at 2200 feet atop Howell Mountain, where the rugged landscape yields equally imposing wines. Readers will have to be patient with the 2015, but there is more than enough fruit and overall depth to stand up to the tannins. The light crop has accentuated everything in the wine's fruit and tannic profile."

"The 2015 Petite Syrah Turley Estate is intense, dark, but wonderfully suave for Petite. Blackberry jam, graphite, crème de cassis, lavender and menthol give shape to this powerful, sensual Petite. Silky tannins add to the wine's surprising accessibility, even at this early stage."

2014 Booker

  • Proprietary Blend
  • Ext 24
  • Paso Robles
  • Estate
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"The 2014 Estate Ext 24 is the, you guessed it, the extended aged version of the Estate cuvee. This was previously called the Alchemist and in 2014 is made from 51% Tempranillo, 28% Syrah, 13% Petit Verdot and 8% Grenache. Getting a few expletives in my rough notes, this beauty sports a deep purple color as well as thrilling aromatics, full-bodied richness, building, firm tannin and straight up awesome purity. The Tempranillo structure is front and center, so I suspect short term cellaring will be the name of the game."

2014 Pahlmeyer

  • Merlot
  • Napa Valley
  • California
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This is a blend of 94.5% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. It has a dense purple color, although not as saturated as the 2015 or 2013, with a beautiful fruited nose of blackberry, plum, chocolate, mocha and espresso. The aromatics are killer and then the wine hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied lushness and an expression that says, “Kiss me!” This is a delicious, front-end loaded, full-bodied Merlot."
