E. Guigal Crozes-Hermitage

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 35661

JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/16/2022
The 2019 Crozes-Hermitage is a spicy, complex, incredibly satisfying Crozes with textbook darker berry fruits as well as notes of peppery herbs, violets, and loamy earth. The tannins are nicely integrated and perfectly ripe, and it’s going to evolve gracefully for a decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)
RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 10th Feb 2022
The only one of the 2019 reds to have been bottled at the time of my visit, the 2019 Crozes Hermitage is a super effort, and it should represent a terrific value (the 2018 sells for about $30). Hints of violets accent blueberries and cassis on the nose in this full-bodied, concentrated offering. Rich, velvety and a bit tannic, it’s an impressive négoce bottling. (Joe Czerwinski)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2022
A perfumed style, with silky-edged red currant and Damson notes flecked with sandalwood, white pepper and sanguine hints that then linger prettily on the dusty finish. Drink now through 2025. 2,500 cases imported. (James Molesworth)

Stolpman Vineyards Estate Grown Syrah

2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 24781

VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2020
The 2018 Syrah Estate is a fabulous example of both the estate and everything Ballard Canyon is about. Fabulously deep and expansive, the Estate captures tremendous character. The flavors are dark, brooding and so rich. Black cherry, plum, leather, spice and dried herbs abound. The 50% whole clusters are nicely integrated, but the tannins are equally imposing, so a measure of patience is critical. All of the other Syrahs in this range are compelling, but to me the Estate is the most complete. It’s a reference-point wine for the appellation.
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2020
Clean aromas of boysenberry, wet stone and sifted ash show on the lively nose of this bottling. The palate is intensely grippy with earthy tension, combining freshly smashed berry flavors with aromatic rosewater flavors and just a hint of game.
RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
Medium ruby purple, the 2018 Syrah Estate opens with bright, fresh blackcurrants, aniseed, tar and laurel on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with lifted, juicy, floral-laced fruits and finishes long and uplifted. 3,900 cases produced.
JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - August 4, 2020
Blended with 2% Viognier, the 2018 Syrah Estate Grown reveals a saturated purple color as well as a lively bouquet of spiced red and blue fruits, ground pepper, violets, and a touch of cedary herbs. Medium-bodied, fresh, and focused, it’s a classy Syrah to drink over the coming 7–8 years. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Marietta Gibson Block

Estate Grown McDowell Valley Syrah
2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 54953

RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 3rd Jun 2021
The 2018 Gibson Block Syrah comes from very old vines interplanted with other varieties like Grenache, Trousseau Noir and Mission. They are dry-farmed, picked together and co-fermented. It has a deep ruby-purple color and deep, layered aromas of tar, earth, blackcurrant liqueur, cast iron and dried violets. The full-bodied palate bursts with juicy acidity, sparks of Luxardo cherry and a silky, rounded mouthfeel. It finishes very long and perfumed.
VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2021
The 2018 Syrah Estate Gibson Block is positively stellar. These old, dry-farmed vines yield a Syrah that is intensely bold and savory. Dark blue/black fruit, tobacco, cedar, licorice, tobacco and dried flowers open with a bit of coaxing. Readers will find a heady, tannic Syrah built for aging. Time in the glass brings out notable finesse, but I would be in no rush here.

Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 28575

RP94+94+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 21st Jul 2022
The Barossa has the ability to convey a sense of place, dirt and air in the glass. The trick is to not get in the way—a cooper does not terroir make. Despite not being the dominant region in this blend (for specificity: McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway and Clare Valley), the Barossa makes a potent contribution. Here, in the 2020 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz, the concentrated, dry and warm vintage is on show and provides a splay of earthy, dense fruit, stretched over a framework of savory tannin. Despite Penfolds’s reputation for big tannins/big oak, the fruit here overpowers both and streams out over the long finish. The heart of Barossa is here. Very good. Will get better. (Erin Larkin)
SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 15, 2022
Ripe and generous, but the aromatics take this to the next level, with notes of cardamom, paprika and dried rose petal, plus touches of candied violet and cocoa powder, to complement the core of fleshy blackberry, black cherry and cassis. The tannins are dense but velvety, and this finishes with warm chocolaty notes. Drink now through 2035. 9,287 cases imported. (MaryAnn Worobiec)
JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, October 26, 2022
A homage to warmer-region, South Australian shiraz, this has a rich and smooth delivery of ripe blackberries and red-to-dark plums on the nose. The wine has taken its 12 months in American oak (16% new) well and truly in its stride. Plush and suave mouth-feel here, this is effortless and a style that sits right in the Penfolds sweet spot. A blend of McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway and Clare Valley. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2022
Opaque ruby. Oak-spiced cherry, blackberry and mocha aromas, along with coconut, licorice and cracked pepper accents. Deep and weighty on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit, mocha and oak spice flavors that show an appealing sweetness but are slow to open. In a distinctly powerful style, delivering youthfully chewy tannins and a long, chewy finish that echoes the licorice and dark berry notes. (Josh Raynolds)

SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2022
Mouthfilling, with a delicious gush of warmed blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors backed by licorice, bramble and sweet tapenade notes, which contrast with the fruit nicely. Features a nice buried iron spine on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2038. 500 cases made, 25 cases imported. (James Molesworth)
JD93+93–95+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/5/2021
The 2019 Côte Rôtie Vieilles Vignes offers slightly more dark fruit and minerality as well as a more concentrated yet backward style on the palate. Full-bodied and structured, with terrific purity, it’s going to require more bottle age than the base and, but it should have two-plus decades of longevity. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Deep ruby. Spice-accented aromas of blackcurrant, kirsh and olive paste aromas, along with a mineral top note. Sappy, sweet and expansive on the palate, offering juicy red and blue fruit preserves, cracked pepper and a violet pastille nuance. Dusty tannins give shape to the persistent finish, which leaves behind sappy floral and spice notes. (Josh Raynolds)
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 20th Jan 2022
One of the few 2019s to be marked by cracked pepper aromas, the cherry-scented 2019 Saint Joseph les Salamandres is only medium-bodied, but it is concentrated and supple, with a long, silky finish. Drink it over the next 5 years or so. (Joe Czerwinski)

VN8888 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2023
This punchy 2021 Shiraz Woodcutter’s radiates with vibrant sweet aromas of blackberry, cocoa and fruit pastilles. Fruit-forward in style with layers of tarry, sweet blackberry flavors plus ample volume. It finishes a little hard as the fruit fades over grainy tannins. (Angus Hughson)

Blueberry, blackberry and cedar aromas with similar flavors on the palate. It’s medium-to full-bodied with juicy fruit and a flavorful finish. Syrah with some petit verdot. Very pretty now.

JS92+92–93 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, April 7, 2022
A charismatic Crozes-Hermitage with tons of black-plum fruit, as well as hot-asphalt and cocoa-powder notes. This is remarkably open for its young age, in spite of the ample structure. Has a bold and tightly knit tannin structure, but should be drinkable from release, thanks to the forthright fruit that is very present at the long, moderately dry finish. From biodynamically grown grapes.
VN92+92–94 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2022
Shimmering ruby. Expressive, spice-accented red and dark berry aromas are complemented by suggestions of olive, espresso and candied flowers. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering gently sweet cherry and cassis flavors that deepen through the back half. Finishes very long, spicy and smooth, with even tannins lending final grip.

The nose has varietal expressions of spices and ripe berries and introduces a savory palate. Red plum, cherry, thyme and black pepper are lifted by lively acidity, providing depth to this young Shiraz. (Jesica Vargas)

JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, November 7, 2022
A spicy and peppery shiraz with blackberries, stems and hints of herbs and green tobacco. Very varietal. Medium body. Medium, round tannins with tension and focus. I like the almond-flavored underlay. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2022
