Bastide Miraflors

Syrah & Vieilles Vignes de Grenache
2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 35538

JD9595 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - March 22, 2021
Based on 74% Syrah and 26% Grenache brought up in in a combination of concrete tanks (for the Grenache) and one year old demi-muids (for the Syrah), the 2018 Cotes Du Roussillon Bastide Miraflors is a knockout bottle of wine. It offers loads of black fruits, roasted herbs, peppered meat, violets, and bacon fat as well as full-bodied richness, a round, opulent style, ripe tannins, and a blockbuster finish. It’s one of the finest values out there. (Jeb Dunnuck)

Item #: 47570

VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2022
The 2019 Manolibera is laced with crushed red berry fruit, spice, mint, sweet pipe tobacco and orange peel. This effusive mid-weight red is a real charmer. I especially like the feeling of transparency here. (Antonio Galloni)

Domaine Bousquet Malbec

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 52144

SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 31, 2022
A fresh and lively expression, offering inviting floral cherry and raspberry notes, with loamy earth and spice details weaving in. Ends with a push of fresh acidity and a hint of singed orange peel. Drink now. 115,102 cases made, 49,122 cases imported. (MaryAnn Worobiec)
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2023
This good-value red has a nose of peppercorn and flint, with subtle notes of ripe berry. On the palate, flavors of red fruit and herbs extend into a medium finish. (Jesica Vargas)

Colomé Estate Malbec

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 52557

VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2022
The 2020 Malbec Estate from the Calchaquí Valley, Salta was aged for 15 months in a quarter new barrels. A purplish ebony in the glass. The concentrated, intense nose offers notes of fruit jam with plum, spice, chutney and balsamic aromas. In the mouth, it makes a plush entrance with good vigor, a juicy flow, refined, reactive tannins and a bold expression. A balanced but powerful high altitude red, the combination of different vineyards from across the valley makes for a complex profile. (Joaquín Hidalgo)
RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
The clean, varietal and fruit-driven 2020 Estate Malbec mixes grapes from different terroirs and altitudes where they have vineyards: 1,800, 2,300, 2,600 and 3,111 meters! The wine is ripe at 14.9% alcohol but feels very harmonious and balanced, clean and focused. It matured in French oak barrels, 10% of them new, for 15 months. 280,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2021. (Luis Gutiérrez)

G.D. Vajra Barolo Albe

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 46413

SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2023
Delivers a whiff of grilled beef that gives way to flavors of cherry, raspberry, rose hip and mineral. Compact, even austere, as assertive tannins emerge on the resonant finish. Best from 2026 through 2045. 6,500 cases made. (Bruce Sanderson)
VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2023
The 2019 Barolo Albe is a nuanced, understated wine, but it is also a rare Albe that needs time in bottle. Sweet floral and spice notes open first, leading to an attractive core of Nebbiolo fruit. Gentle and understated, with lovely precision, the 2019 Albe is a hushed wine that is more about energy than size. I have seen the Albe really blossom with a few years in bottle. I expect that will be the case here as well given its super-classic feel. (Antonio Galloni)

Old Vine
2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 36409

WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2023
A bit shy on the nose, this Zin really comes to life on the palate, incorporating rich ripe fruits with complementary soft, plush tannins and an excellent line of acidity that provides a refreshing backbone. Enjoy notes of blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, violets and roses, fennel fronds and dried forest floor. (Stacy Briscoe)

Harvey & Harriet White Wine Blend

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 59889

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Dec 2022
The 2021 White Blend, a blend of Albariño, Chardonnay, Viognier and Pinot Gris, has intense aromas of peach, lemongrass, fresh citrus, honey and flint, opening to new aromatic nuances with each return to the glass. The medium-bodied palate is bursting with perfumed fruit, loaded with juicy acidity, and it finishes with a touch of anchoring texture. It’s a delicious yet serious white with alluring generosity that keeps you coming back for more. (Erin Brooks)
JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, November 7, 2022
Really aromatic nose with lots of viognier perfume that gives it a floral, gingery note with lychee, citrus and nectarines to the nose. Medium-bodied and bone-dry on the palate with a crisp and fresh acidity. Chardonnay, albarino, viognier and pinot gris. Drink now. (James Suckling)

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2024
Impressively submitted for review in the same year that it was made, this bottling is, not surprisingly, superfresh, but it’s also just a great Sauvignon Blanc. Lively aromas of lime peel, chopped grass, kiwi and rainy concrete decorate the nose, while the palate is boosted by a zesty, citrus-powered acidity and a stony grip, with grass clippings most prevalent.
