- DeRose Negrette Cienega Valley Old Vines 2015$39.98Availability:In StockLiquid history! Speaking of one-of-a-kind wine experiences, this is the only varietal Negrette bottling we know of from this part of the world, and maybe anywhere. A dark grape with primarily dark red and black fruit character laced with notes of smoke, brown spices and white pepper, this is a substantial red with rich, smooth old vine fruit. Again very pleasing and rather complex, a plush, ample texture with some supporting ripe but slightly chewy tannins, this is a wine of substance with plenty of stuffing but that doesn’t cross over to extreme ripeness. Some of these vines are 120 years old and the old-viney complexity is a big part of the wines appeal. Grapes harvested at less than one ton to the acre.
- Cruse Wine Company Tannat Alder Springs Vineyard 2015VM90$44.98Availability:In Stock90 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 MediaLearn More
