  1. Chateau Maris Les Planels

    Cru La Livinière
    2012 / 750 ml. | Item#45828

    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

    Perfumed, this red features ripe black cherry, blackberry, black currant, violet, iron, loamy earth and sanguine aromas and flavors. More approachable than its peers at this stage, with fine structure, if a little less density. Long finish. Drink now through 2032. 5,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.

  4. 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.
    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.
    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.
    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.

  7. Palacio del Burgo Rioja Crianza

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#49092

    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2019
    Brilliant violet color. Fragrant, oak-spiced dark berries, cherry preserves and a hint of candied flowers on the nose. Blends depth and energy smoothly, offering ripe boysenberry, cherry-cola and coconut flavors and a touch of smokiness. Closes spicy, broad and long, with smooth tannins and lingering florality.
    SP8686 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2018
    This plush red offers kirsch, plum and chocolate flavors that have a jammy character. Tangerine acidity keeps this lively, and leafy and licorice notes add interest. Tempranillo and Graciano. Drink now through 2021. 8,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
    RP8585 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Feb 2018
    The 2015 Palacio del Burgo Crianza is pure Tempranillo with higher ripeness and more presence of oak, aged in new, second and third use American oak barrels with high toast for one year. I found this too oaky for my taste, and the aromas of coconut, smoke and vanilla dominate the nose. The palate revealed sweet tannins, round and lush with lots of balsamic flavors, hinting on mint and eucalyptus. For fans of oaky Rioja. 72,000 bottles produced.

    SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2020
    Aromas of blood, iron and raw beef lead off, followed by flavors of cherry, plum and leather. Rich and harmonious, with a dense underlying structure and terrific length. Approachable now, but this should evolve well over the next few decades. Drink now through 2040. 3,500 cases made, 2,800 cases imported.
    JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, November 7, 2019

    Toffee, dried mint, singed orange peel and iron accents waft from the glass of this full-bodied version. On the palate this is less forthcoming, with flavors of crushed black cherry, melted licorice and espresso cream tightly knit to dense, fine-grained tannins. Let this mouthwatering red shine with decanting or short-term cellaring. Best from 2022 through 2032. 2,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.

    RP8686 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018
    Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir Kalita Vineyard has an herbal nose of bay leaves, undergrowth and eucalyptus over Bing cherries and red licorice. 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.
