Antinori Solaia Toscana 2015 Italian Red Wine 750 mL
Antinori Solaia Toscana 2015 Italian Red Wine 750 mL

97 Points, "Collectibles" - Wine Spectator, October 15, 2008 "This offers gorgeous aromas of blackberry, mineral and flowers follow through to a full body, with superfine tannins and a long, long finish. A complex and wonderfully structured red. Long and beautiful. Best after 2012. 3,000 cases made." -James Suckling 93 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2008 "The 2005 Solaia is elegant and refined, yet it remains incredibly primary. Still, it is hard not to admire the wine's layered expression of blue and black fruits. The oak remains prominent, but I am confident the wine will come together with bottle age. The Solaia vineyard is one of the most unique terroirs in Italy, and the wine has a track record of developing beautifully in bottle, even in smaller vintages. It will be fascinating to follow this Solaia as it matures. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2023." -Antonio Galloni "Back in the winery, oenologist Renzo Cotarella prepared a comprehensive tasting of Antinori's two flagship wines, Tignanello and Solaia, with vintages going back to the mid-1990s. I will report on those verticals, which include a preview of 2006 and 2007, in an upcoming article that will be published in the Italy Report section of www.erobertparker.com. Both Tignanello and Solaia are outstanding in 2005." -Antonio Galloni

Benjamin Romeo Contador Rioja 2011 Spanish Red Wine 750 mL
Benjamin Romeo Contador Rioja 2011 Spanish Red Wine 750 mL

Wine Advocate 96 points - The 2011 Contador is a compact, tight-knit wine, serious and backward that needs plenty of air. It’s still a baby showing the typical aromas that only the very best barrels can give and that you only find in a very few top wines (and I’m thinking of Pingus here). However, the personality is quite different, akin to a young Nuits-St-Georges, with very fine tannins and subtle acidity. I feel the wine needs a couple of years in the bottle. Drink 2016-2022. .Luis Gutierrez, December/201

97 Wine Advocate April 2015

One of the best showings for this wine in years, the 2012 Contador has an intoxicating nose of violets, lilies, blueberries and black cherries, with great harmony, denoting superb elegance. The palate is silky, with world-class tannins and texture, focused, clean flavors, very good balance and gob-smacking power and elegance. A rare combination. This is truly other wordy. It has the balance, stuffing, acidity and minerality to have a long life in bottle, but its exuberant youth is difficult to resist. Unfortunately, wines like this come at a price. I tasted two bottles, and even though it's not as polished as the Carmen Gran Reserva, it was approachable. But it would clearly benefit from more time in bottle. A couple of weeks later, I was served it and didn't recognize the wine at all; I found it extremely oaky and extracted, and in fact I guessed it to be a Tempranillo from Toro, which was disturbing when the wine was revealed as I didn't identify it at all (not even Rioja!). It showed very differently. We all know different bottles and circumstances show very differently, so I thought this was relevant to be mentioned here, as it made me hesitate. They told me the day of that blind tasting was a root day, but still I'm adding a question mark to my score, which might ultimately bee too conservative. 5,900 bottles produced. I tasted an impressive portfolio of wines from Benjamín Romeo, one of the best I can remember, with Contador going back to the elegance and Chambolle-like purity that I remember from vintages like 2000, but cleaner and more focused. The more traditional Carmen shows how the modern and traditional styles can coexist and even converge. Bravo Benjamín!

Bodegas El Nido El Nido 2013 Cabernet Monastrell Blend Red Spanish Jumilla Wine 1.5 L

one bottle on hand, no discounts

Rating for 2012 vintage 94 points VM Jan 2016 (raised in a combination of new French and American oak barrels for two years): Opaque purple. The highly expressive bouquet evokes black and blue fruit preserves, pipe tobacco, candied licorice, vanilla and smoky Indian spices. Lush and creamy in texture, with palate-coating cassis and cherry-vanilla flavors that are enlivened by juicy acidity and zesty minerality.

Wine Spectator 95 points August 2016 for previous vintage

- Concentrated yet balanced, this rich, modern red is dense and fleshy, with muscular tannins and balsamic acidity supporting the thick texture. Ripe and heady flavors of blackberry, kirsch, currant, anise and dark chocolate mingle. Best from 2018 through 2028. From Spain.-T.M..August/2016

94 Points, Wine Spectator

"This polished, modern red offers alluring aromas of lilac, cocoa and spice that follow through on the palate, picking up flavors of blackberry, mineral and toast. There's plenty of backbone behind the plush texture. The wine is fresh, harmonious and balanced. Drink now through 2024. 300 cases made." –TM, July 2013

Cade Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2014 Napa Valley California Red Wine 750mL

93 points Wine Advocate December 2016

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate from their Howell Mountain vineyards is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. A beauty, with mulberry, blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, graphite and spice, the wine cuts a broad swath across the palate with no hard edges. The color is a healthy, deep purple and the wine full-bodied, rich, and while drinkable now, is capable of evolving for up to 15-20 years." -Robert Parker

Caduceus Cellars Nagual de la Naga Arizona 2013 Red Wine 750mL
Caduceus Cellars Nagual de la Naga Arizona 2013 Red Wine 750mL
"1990 Sassacaia, 1990 Masseto, I’d be thrilled to live in the immense shadow of the wine from this region of my 1st love, Tuscany. She has a spell cast over me. She taunts me like the Sirens. I believe it’s the dance between the Sangiovese and the Cab Sav. The beef and cherries. This template is by far the biggest guess. When this wine was conceived, no one in this area has attempted Sangiovese that I was aware of. Therefore no physical evidence to suggest that we would be able to pull off the NAGA. The Kundalini Serpent. The Mountain Goddess. Only the educated guess based on terrior and some faith in our intuition. We now know for certain that Sangiovese does well in both Southern and Northern Arizona as evidenced by the Nagual del MARZO and KITSUNÉ. The Naga will continue to be one our flagship blends. And as of 2010 this wine is now made from 100% Arizona fruit." -The Winery
