    Our Addax 2016 Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon stains the glass with inky purple blackberries, giving up notions of cherries, cassis, and plum with asphalt and Italian leather. Full bodied yet focused in the mouth, it has a satisfying core of dark fruit and earthy layers with seductive tannins and a seemingly never-ending finish.

    Alex Gambal 2017 Puligny-Montrachet

    This too was just racked and impossible to read aromatically. More interesting are the notably finer mineral-driven flavors that possess a sophisticated mouth feel along with very fine drive and delineation on the impressively lengthy finish. This needs to add more depth but I believe that it will if allowed a few years of cellaring.

  • Alion by Vega Sicilia 2013 Tempranillo

    Alion by Vega Sicilia 2018 Tempranillo

    $99.99$1,056.00

    Ribera del Duero Spain
    Wine Advocate 95+ Rating
    The 2018 Alión follows the path of the 2016: it is fresh and elegant and from a cooler (more Atlantic) vintage with more rain than the average and a relatively late harvest between September 28th and October 12th. They used 80% new barrels, with up to 10% made of American oak looking to (in their own words) give more sucrosity and sweetness to the wine, as it’s a more vertical, tense and elegant expression of Alión. Part of the wine matured in concrete (something they started in 2016), and in 2021 they are experimenting with a 4,000-liter Rousseau foudre, as they want to keep working the texture and freshness. The wine is ripe at 15% alcohol and has a pH of 3.8 and a mellow 4.6 grams of acidity, round and soft. The wine matured until it was bottled in June 2020. The truth is that the wine comes through as subtle, elegant and balanced, with very integrated oak and a nice texture. It’s one of the finest vintages for Alión.

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon rocks up with gregarious black cherries, blackcurrants and warm plums with hints of menthol, chocolate box and fragrant earth. Big, rich and full-bodied, with loads of minted black berry and earthy layers, it has a firm, grainy frame and fantastic length. R45-5

    The Altesino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows beautiful depth and latitude, with broad fruit aromas of dark cherry and cassis that recall the warmth and golden sunlight of the vintage. The wine is deceivingly streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, but that slim and buttoned-down backbone supports a broad range of flavors and sensations, from lavender essence and camphor ash to moist soil and toasted spice. All of these elements are delivered with impressive harmony and unity, and I expect that this wine will continue on a slow, steady and satisfying aging trajectory over the next 10 years or more. Fruit is sourced from across 21 hectares of vines with tufaceous limestone soils and Alberese rock, which contributes to the freshness and balanced structure of the wine. Drink: 2021-2035. R22-1

    Laced with ripe cherry, strawberry, floral, spice, iron and leather flavors, this red is complex and charming, yet with serious tannins that ply the structure and lift the long finish. The fine balance should facilitate longevity. BX-5

    Amapola Creek 2014 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard

    $29.99$174.00

    Sonoma County California
    Wine Advocate 94 Rating
    The 2014 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard is slightly less potent (15.5%), but production is about the same (670 cases). Dense opaque purple, with a big, sweet blackberry and cassis nose of camphor, roasted meats and hints Provençal herbs and pepper, this rich, full-bodied, inky Zinfandel should drink nicely for at least a decade as well.
