    91 Points! Aged for 14 months in new and used oak barrels, 80 percent of them French and 20 percent American) Green-tinged gold. Meyer lemon, toasted grain, ginger and white flowers on the mineral-accented nose. Fleshy and dry on the palate, offering concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors and complicating notes of tarragon and honey. Shows a suave blend of richness and vivacity.

  2. Olivier Riviere Rioja Blanco Mirando Al Sur 2015
    JS96
    WA93
    $64.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93+ Points! It seems like the effect of the Jerez barrels used to age the 2015 Mirando al Sur is weaker each year, so Olivier Rivière decided to not top up the barrels anymore in the 2016 vintage. This is still nutty and spicy, but the "flor" character is subtler, though it increased as the wine sat in the glass in contact with air. This is produced with the same village and the same process as La Bastid (the old Jequitibá), but then it is aged in Sherry butts for 12 months. It has pungent flavors and the dry and chalky texture of both the limestone soils and the Sherry wines.  - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate

  3. Cruse Wine Company Tannat Alder Springs Vineyard 2015
    VM90
    $44.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points!  Michael Cruse's 2015 Tannat Alder Springs is bold and intense, and yet the huge tannins typical of this variety have been largely tamed. A host of earthy, savory notes add aromatic complexity to the deeply expressive, varietal fruit. The 2015 is bold and rustic (there is only so much one can do with Tannat) and yet all the elements are beautifully balanced. The Tannat was vinified in concrete and aged in barrel. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
