  1. Confession

    Napa Valley Red Wine
    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#50273

    JD9292 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - December 29, 2017
    Like the Tarot releases, the 2015 Confession Napa Valley Red is charming, balanced and pretty, with hints of black cherries, black raspberries, violets, vanilla and incense. It has plenty of dark fruit, lots of juicy fruit, fine tannin, and a great finish.

    Composed of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot with smaller parts of Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec, the 2015 Confession Napa Valley Red has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and is scented of cassis, kirsch and baked raspberries with plenty of baking spice, incense and cigar box notions in the background, with an herbal waft. Medium to full-bodied, it has a very pretty floral perfume boosting the fruit with a chewy texture and nice savory finish.

    Plum and berry with some spice and fruit tea undertones. Full body, round and soft tannins yet a linear edge at the end. Drink or hold.

  3. Castaño Alcaria

    Old Vines
    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#50069

    JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - February 21, 2018
    A custom cuvée made for importer Eric Solomon with Jean-Marc Lafage, the 2016 Alcaria is a blend of 50% Monastrell, 25% Syrah, and the balance Garnacha, brought up in a mix of French and American oak barrels. An incredible value that more than over-delivers, this deeply colored red boasts terrific notes of ripe black fruits, chocolate, smoked herbs, and graphite. With full-boded richness and a sexy, opulent style on the palate, it opens up nicely in the glass and should keep for 2–4 years.

    One of the new custom cuvées for their U.S. importer Eric Solomon is the 2016 Alcaria, which is about to be launched. It’s a GSM-ish blend of 60% Monastrell with 25% Syrah and the remaining Garnacha Tintorera with a short time in French and American oak barriques. It’s a little reduced right now after bottling (most probably because of the Syrah), so you might need to give it an energetic decanting or some more time in bottle. The meat component in many wines in this region is part of the signature and the rustic elegance of these wines. There is no reduction in the palate, where the tannins are fine-grained and there’s good balance. 120,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2017.
    SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2017
    Floral and mineral notes frame juicy cherry and red plum flavors in this fresh red. Crisp acidity keeps the supple texture focused, while firm tannins give this some heft. Monastrell, Syrah and Garnacha Tintorera. Drink now through 2024. 6,000 cases imported.
    WE8989 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/1/2018
    This blend of Monastrell, Syrah and Garnacha Tintorera feels lively, its dark plum and berry aromas laced with chocolate. Smacking tannins create a dry sensation, framing ripe black plum and prune flavors. Complex notes of spice and tomato emerge on the firm finish.

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#50411

    JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, July 16, 2019
    Delicious intensity and focus to this red here with fresh dark cherries, licorice, tea leaves and some eucalyptus. Round and juicy but grainy and suave, this delivers solid, crunchy cherries, across a wealth of sturdy tannins. Full-bodied and medium-chewy on the finish. Drink now.
