Crios, Malbec 2017
93 points Decanter
"What a cracking wine! Black plum and violet aromas lead to a fresh and crunchy palate, with balanced alcohol. Fresh, pure – and amazing value."
Adega Mae, Petit Verdot 2015
90 points Wine Enthusiast
"While Petit Verdot is almost never seen on its own in its home territory of Bordeaux, the Portuguese winemakers seem to have a fascination for it. This firmly structured wine has solid tannins as well as the perfumed dense black fruits associated with the grape. Drink now but expect the tannins to remain."
Capezzana, Barco Reale di Carmignano 2016
92 points James Suckling
"As always, this is quite exotic with notes of dried sage, dark cherries, mulberries, cedar and red licorice. Full body with round tannins, showing good grip and a medium-long finish. Drink or hold. Made from organically grown grapes."
Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon
Banshee, Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2018
91 points Wine Enthusiast
"Pristine aromas of strawberry and herbs are fresh and inviting on the nose of this bottling. There is a fun freshness to the palate, where the cherry tones are enhanced by greener elements of oregano and dill, all wrapped in firm tannins"
Domaine Lafage Tessellae Old Vines Cotes du Roussillon 2015
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"An incredible value from Jean-Marc Lafage is the 2015 Tessellae Old Vines Grenache Syrah Mourvedre, which is 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre from 70-year-old vines and brought up all in concrete tank. A ripe, expansive, full-bodied and undeniably sexy red that has beautiful notes of kirsch liqueur, blueberries, pepper and violets, it has ripe and present tannin, straight up fabulous purity and a great finish. This is another one of those wines where you just have to tell yourself you spent more than you actually did. The wine really is this good."
Domaine Roche, Cairanne 2014
90 points Wine Spectaror
Delivers a plush feel, with plum and raspberry fruit, layered with hoisin sauce, red licorice and black tea notes. The long, suave finish shows buried grip.
