  1. Bastide Miraflors

    Syrah & Vieilles Vignes de Grenache
    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#35538

    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Apr 2017
    This wine is almost too good to be true. A blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks (Grenache) and demi-muids (Syrah), the 2015 Bastide Miraflors Vieilles Vignes reminded me of a mini Syrah from California’s Manfred Krankl (yes I just compared a $14 Syrah to Sine Qua Non). It’s a ripe, sexy, heady beauty that exhibits a deep, purple color as well as killer notes of smoked meats, chocolate, blackberry and black raspberries. Deep, unctuous, open knit and layered, it continues to change in the glass, has a seamless and silky profile, and not a hard edge to be found. It’s a sensational value that needs to be tasted to be believed. Drink it anytime over the coming 2–4 years.

    A very fresh and zesty sauvignon, offering flinty and fresh passion fruit and limes and flowing to a smoothly fleshy, mango and peach palate. Drink now. Screw cap.
    RP8585 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 16th Apr 2020
    The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc features scents of cut grass, pink grapefruit and lemon. It’s light to medium-bodied, crisp and refreshing, with a finish of wet stone, green onion and modest citrus.

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2014
    Made from 100% Syrah, the 2012 Minervois Syrah Les Planels is impressive! Offering classic cassis, raspberry, licorice and hints of vanilla, it has fabulous purity, a lively, yet voluptuous and layered texture and a great finish. Hard to resist now, it should evolve gracefully for a solid 7–8 years.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2016
    There is a freshness behind the savory spice and meaty notes in this medium-bodied red, with bright red berry, plum and bitter chocolate flavors pushing through midpalate. Grippy tannins define the zesty, herb-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,100 cases made.

  4. 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.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
    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.
    JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, December 21, 2017
    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.

  5. Evodia

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#31225

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Dec 2018
    The incredibly perfumed 2017 Evodia was true to its name, as apparently ’evodia’ means fragrant in the ancient Greek language. It had been bottled for a few months when I tasted it and it was very harmonious and expressive. They have reduced quantities and raised the price a bit, going into a different segment of the market, definitely a better wine than what I tasted from 2016. It achieved almost 15% alcohol in 2017, one of the earliest harvests of the last 20 years after some spring frosts and a very dry summer. Only 20% of the volume matured in barrel, while the rest was kept in concrete vats for six months. It’s very easy to drink, with unnoticeable tannins and a long, lingering finish. Super tasty and impressive for the price. 150,000 bottles were produced.

    2013 / 750 ml. | Item#43720

    RP91+91–93 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2015
    I loved the 2013 Minervois la Liviniere les Anciens, and this blend of 100% Carignan knocks it out of the park with its liquid violet, crushed rock, peppery herbs and fresh plum and berry fruits. Medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, elegant profile that the hallmark of the vintage, it has fine tannin and a great mid-palate. It should drink nicely on release and have 5–7 years of longevity.
    WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - June 1, 2016
    From vines planted in 1922, the fruit fermented in concrete tanks and open wooden vats, this is tough, tangy carignan, the fruit tart and red, like seedy raspberries laced with earthy spice. The tannin ropes through the wine like gristle in a steak, the wine chewy without being heavy. For carignan, it’s almost elegant.

  7. Tessellae Old Vines

    Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre
    2014 / 750 ml. | Item#36175

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Jul 2015
    A stunning bargain from Lafage is the 2014 Tessellae Old Vines, a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, all aged in concrete. Much of it comes from 70-year-old vines planted in limestone and clay soils. A delicious, dense ruby wine with notes of red and black cherries, earth, spice, pepper and a touch of Provençal garrigue. Fresh vibrant acidity is also present, and the wine is uncomplicated, but rich, fleshy and very well balanced. Drink it over the next 2–3 years.

  8. 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.
    RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Dec 2017
    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.

    Deep garnet in color, the 2014 Zinfandel Fighting Brothers offers an abundance of black fruit preserves and blueberry pie notes plus underlying spice cake, incense and chocolate box hints. The richly fruited, full-bodied palate is packed with dried berries and spice layers, framed by velvety tannins and much needed freshness, which contributes a lively lift to the weighty finish.

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
    Blended of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller portions of Petit Sirah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2015 Tarot Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color and exuberant nose of warm plums, crushed cherries and crème de cassis with touches of Indian spices, fragrant earth and violets with a waft of lavender. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it fills the palate with black berry and earthy layers, finishing with the lovely velvety texture paving the way.
    JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - December 29, 2017
    The 2015 Tarot Cabernet Sauvignon offers more black cherry, spice and hints of toast, as well as medium to full-bodied richness and a tighter, more focused, concentrated style. It’s terrific now but should evolve gracefully.

    RP8585 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Sep 2016
    The 2015 Roche Darjac is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. It delivers a pleasant redcurrant and cranberry bouquet, what you might call a little “solid” but with plenty of fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with powdered chocolate sprinkled over the black and red fruit, chunky and big-boned but packed with flavor on the finish. This is a decent, commercial Bordeaux wine at a bargain price, but give it a year in bottle if you can.

Light to medium-bodied, it’s lacking a bit of intensity on the palate, geared more toward the herbal notes, with good freshness but drying tannins, dropping off a bit on the finish. 290 cases produced.

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Proprietary Red Blend Family Reserve Generations is intensely scented of warm black and red currants, Black Forest cake and blueberry compote with nuances of chocolate mint, new leather, tilled soil and fallen leaves. Full-bodied with a taut frame of grainy tannins supporting the densely packed black fruit layers, it has a long lingering minty kick on the finish.
