Chateau Puech-Haut, La Closerie du Pic 2016
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Pic Saint Loup La Closerie du Pic, a blend of Syrah and Grenache, features striking aromas of crushed stone to go along with the familiar cola and plum notes so typical of this estate's style. It's full-bodied and softly tannic but concentrated, with more freshness, energy and length than the entry-level wines. It should drink well for up to a decade."
Country: France Variety: Grenache and Syrah
Herdade do Rocim Tinto 2011
92 points Wine Enthusiast
"This estate wine is seriously structured, with tones of dried herbs alongside richer elements of dense tannins and ripe black fruits. A bright acid backbone maintains a fresh and lively character. It might be best to lay down this selection for further integration."

Altos Las Hormigas, Tinto 2017
90 points James Suckling

Saracco, Pinot Noir 2016
90 points Wine Enthusiast
"Polished and savory, this has fruity aromas of red and black-skinned berry that mix with a whiff of baking spice. The soft round palate doles out juicy black cherry, crushed raspberry and a hint of clove framed in lithe, velvety tannins."
Country: Italy Variety: Pinot Noir
Breca, Old Vine Garnacha 2016
91 points Jeb Dunnuck
"It has brilliant notes of kirsch, ripe black raspberries, crushed violets, orange rind, licorice, and spice box. Rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, and balanced, it's another beautiful wine that has balance, integrated acidity, ripe tannins, and tons of character."

Steele Pacini Zinfandel 2017
91 points Wine Enthusiast
"This is a firmly structured and moderately tannic wine intended for rich grilled or roasted foods. Attractive salt and pepper aromas lead to tempting blackberry and strawberry flavors and a full body."
