Corison 'Napa' Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
95  International Wine Report 
Vinous Media 94 "A deep, inky wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is endowed with serious depth. Here the flavors are unusually dark and intense, with plenty of blue and black stone fruits. Graphite, cloves and licorice contribute to an overall impression of gravitas. Far from an easygoing wine, the

Marques de Caceres Crianza 2013

96  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 96 "The 2001 Gran Reserva 904 will not be released for another 3 years. Dark ruby-colored with a garnet rim, it displays a lovely nose of Asian spices, incense, tobacco, balsamic, and blackberry. On the palate it has exceptional depth, layers of spicy black fruit, excellent ripeness,

Liquid Farm 'White Hill' Chardonnay 2013

Sandhi 'Bentrock' Chardonnay 2013
97  International Wine Report 
International Wine Report 97 "The 2013 Bedrock Vineyard Chardonnay is another absolutely magical showing from Sandhi. Bentrock is located just three miles west of Sanford and Benedict and consists of younger vines, with lower-yields, resulting in more concentrated fruit. This 2013 is a completely

Corison 'Kronos' Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
98  International Wine Report 
Vinous Media 95+ "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Kronos presents a more intensely mineral and savory profile than the Napa Valley, with the opulence of the vintage pushed more into the background. Dried flowers, iron, spice, leather and mint add nuance. Ideally readers should give the 2012 at least a

La Peira en Damaisela 'Las Flors de la Peira' 2009
95  International Wine Report 
Rhone Report 95 "The 2009 La Peira Coteaux du Languedoc Les Terrasses du Larzac Las Flors, a blend of 55% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and 5% Cinsault, is stylistically closer to the grand vin than to the Les Obriers de La Peira; it is certainly the best vintage of this cuvee I’ve tasted to
