WA89ptsSize750MLVintage2012SKU19977Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 offers a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro that opens with aromas of warm blackberries, blueberry preserves and dark chocolate accented by hints of charcoal and spice box. Full-bodied and voluptuously fruited on the palate, soft tannins and ample acidity to lend lift to the long finish. 89pts Wine Advocate (2012)
Size750MLVintage2014SKU15057Very floral and peachy. Good acid a slight grassy note with wet stones. Melons come up on the finish.
WS92Size750MLVintage2014SKU21740Shows nice tension between the ripe, dark flavors and crisp, lively structure, featuring a sleek core of plum and smoky tea flavors that carry easily into the long and deftly balanced finish. A little cellaring should soften the tannins. 92pts Wine Spectator
Size750MLVintage2013SKU22694The lively fruit is generously-aromatic in this white wine, with classic note of citrus, tropical fruit, and broom blossom, lifted by a subtly sweet florality. Crisp and vibrant on the palate, it offers fruit that is notably vivacious and self-confident. Quite rich and with good weight, the impressions of sweetness derived from the sur lie maturation are in admirable balance with the zesty acidity, which drives a mineral-laden finish of impressive length.
Size750MLVintage2007SKU22575This IGT is full-bodied and complex with overtones of vanilla and a deep, intense color. Black currants, cassis, cherries, and tobacco on the nose. Flavors of black fruits, especially black cherry, spice, and vanilla meld together in perfect harmony.
Size750MLVintage2015SKU13035This estate's 2013 Coda di Volpe presents layers of mineral-infused fruit in a fairly intense style for this bottling. It shows good focus and a peachy vibrant finish. A broadly appealing wine.
Size750MLVintage2011SKU19171This wine is 100% Nero d'Avola fermented and aged in stainless steel, and bottled early to preserve its fruit. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by aromas of strawberries, black cherries, and scorched earth. Medium-bodied, intensely fruity, and lush with a hedonistic appeal..
Size750MLVintage2011SKU19172Dark fruit, licorice, clovers and flowers emerge with lovely inner sweetness, adding complexity to the dense, expressive fruit. Great Southern Italian Value!
Size750MLVintageNVSKU21633Cool and focused in the mouth, deep with fine acids and polished tannins supporting subtle blueberry and blackberry fruit on the palate. Structurally this is rather crisp & focused with good length to the clear & bright blackberry black cherry toned finish.
Size750MLVintage2010SKU15019Sweet floral aromatics emerge from the Gattinara. This deceptively medium-bodied wine shows good depth in its red fruit, but at times comes across as a touch fragile and fleeting. Nevertheless, it is an attractive, representative Gattinara well-suited for drinking over the next few years.
Size750MLVintage2014SKU10089This Chardonnay is quite distinct, with ripe tropical fruit flavors layered with citrus components, vibrant acidity, and the expected minerality characteristic. Excellent value in Cali Chardonnay!
Size750MLVintage2012SKU14417A lovely, aromatic nose of flowers, fresh white fruits and citrus leads this delicate white. Crisp acidity and a touch of richness give the wine both complexity and a food-friendly edge.
Size750MLVintage2014SKU22194Santorini's volcanic soils and windswept vineyards combine to create thrilling white wines like this one. It's marked by the scent of seashells and lemon zest, and despite its light body has a surprisingly silky texture.
Size750MLVintage2014SKU5840Big aromas of blackberries, licorice, chocolate covered cherries and cocoa powder. Distinctive character, with rich palate coating textures and lots of layers and depth.
Size750MLSKU21770The bubble is delicate, elegant and persistent, good acidity, creamy, smooth, great structure and prolonged after taste.
WA95Size750MLVintage2010SKU16824The 2010 Vieux Chateau Mazerat is full-bodied, with an abundance of floral notes as well as black currant and blackberry fruit. Impressively endowed and built like a skyscraper, this full-bodied wine needs a good 7-8 years of cellaring and should keep for 25-30 years. Interestingly, the vines were planted in 1947. 95pts Wine Advocate (2010)
WA96Size750MLVintage2009SKU16341This 135-acre estate (all in the famed La Crau) has produced a 2009 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape composed of 65% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre and the rest other authorized varietals (from vines that average 60 years of age). The wine is aged 18 months in foudres and concrete tanks. This classic offering had just been bottled before my visit, so it was probably tighter than it will be in 6-12 months. Deep ruby/purple-colored with notes of garrigue, seaweed, licorice, plums, black cherries and raspberries, it typically reveals a Mediterranean sea breeze-like character that is difficult to articulate. The sweetness of the tannin, full-bodied mouthfeel, and evolved style remind me somewhat of the 1983, which is still drinking beautifully. The 2009 can be consumed now or cellared for two decades. 92Pts Wine Advocate
Size750MLVintage2014SKU12388The Chardonnay is a rich wine with aromas of Granny Smith apple, Bosc pear, vanilla and carmel, complemented by a creamy mouthfeel and a lingering, flinty finish with toasted oak.
WSVinous-90Size750MLVintage2013SKU19654Light yellow. Vibrant lemon zest and pear aromas are complemented by anise and chamomile, with a minerally quality in the background. In the mouth, dried pear and citrus pith flavors are given spine by juicy acidity and sharpened by a gingery nuance. Closes with firm grip and very good stony persistence. Vinous-90
Size750MLVintage2014SKU853This ZD Wines California Chardonnay is yet another testament to our unique style and pursuit of richness and balance. All of the grapes were harvested at optimal maturities and 100% barrel fermented in our cellar which is kept at a chilly 48?F during fermentation. This preserves the vibrant tropical and clean citrus aromas while also helping to maintain a balance of forward fruit and bright natural acidity. Aromas of pineapple, guava and pear mingle with hints of vanilla and orange blossoms. The palate is full bodied and rich with the perfect balance between fruit, oak and acidity. Like many ZD Chardonnays, this wine is a joy to drink when young but will also age and develop beautifully for many years to come. Enjoy! - Winery Notes
Size750MLVintage2011SKU18890The 2010 Valpolicella Superiore Ripassa is simply beautiful. Freshly cut flowers, dark red berries and a gentle hint of spice caress the palate in a subtle, layered wine loaded with personality and class. This is a great introduction to the wines of Zenato. Best of all, the 2010 is a fabulous value. 92pts. Galloni
