Alto Moncayo Veraton Garnacha 2013 Red Spanish Wine
Alto Moncayo Veraton Garnacha 2013 Red Spanish Wine
92 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, November 2015:
 
"Their least-expensive wine, and one qualifying for this report, is the 2013 Alto Moncayo Veraton, aged in 60% new French oak and 40% new American oak for 17 months and bottled without filtration. This is a blockbuster, 100 % Old Vine Grenache cuvée, with a deep-purple color, great intensity, loads of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, with licorice, lavender and touch of graphite and earth. It is full-bodied and powerful and I suspect tips the scales at at least 14%-14.5% alcohol. This should drink well for 5-6 years (2016-2022), possibly a lot longer." - Robert Parker
 
91 Points, Vinous, December 2015:
 
"(aged for 17 months in new French and American oak barrels) Opaque purple. Assertive black and blue fruit and licorice pastille scents are brightened by a hint of cracked pepper. Supple and sweet on the palate, offering plush blueberry and cassis flavors and an exotic violet pastille quality. Blends richness and vivacity smoothly and closes on a gently tannic note, with very good focus and persistence." - Josh Raynoldsi
 
91 Points, Wine Enthusiast, May 2016:
 
"Like all Alto Moncayo Garnachas, this opens with a big, loud crust of toasty oak and campfire smoke on top of blackberry aromas. The palate offers depth and body, while charred, toasty black-fruit flavors finish peppery and with tolerable heat. Drink through 2021." - Michael Schachner

Black's Station Cabernet Sauvignon Red California Wine 750 mL
Black's Station Cabernet Sauvignon Red California Wine 750 mL

      This Yolo County Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits all the classic aromas of cigar box, leather, cassis and dark cherry. Layers of toast, black current and chocolate flavors lead to a long, juicy finish. This easy drinking Cab is perfect with a big, juicy burger or barbecued ribs. 

Due east of Napa, tucked away in northern California’s rolling Dunnigan Hills, is a little town called Zamora. But back in the late 1800’s, folks around here used to call it Black’s Station. At its height, this hub founded by J.J. Black boasted a hotel, two stores, a jail, blacksmith shops and a town hall. Today we grow our grapes just three miles from Zamora. We like to think that they carry with them the character and frontier-style of that old town.

"Pale yellow. Vibrant, sharply focused nose displays intense lime and white peach aromas plus suggestions of smoky lees and iodine. Sappy, penetrating and pure, offering bitter peach pit and citrus zest flavors that open up on the back half. This rich yet lively Godello finishes with excellent clarity and length and a lingering mineral note." -- Josh Raynolds

Tasting Notes from the Importer "Deep, dark red colour, almost opaque fresh and attractive aromas of plums, cherries and black currants The palate is smooth, elegant and supple, with great balance and a firm supportive tannic structure." This imported blend is 50% Syrah, 40%Alicante Bouschet, 10% Touriga Nacional, but is under the same name and vintage as the blend in the Wine Advocate review, so might be slightly different from that review.

Reviews for Previous Vintage

90 Points Wine Advocate October 2013

"The 2012 Pinot Noir has a higher pH than the 2011 and was matured in less new oak than the previous year. It has a lighter, more refined bouquet with bright red cherries, fresh strawberry and just a touch more pinote than the 2011, which feels a little more worked. It has wonderful definition. The palate is fresh and vibrant, much more feminine than the 2011 with fine tannins, bright red cherry and fresh strawberry fruit and a very pretty finish. It needs a little more persistency, but otherwise this is very commendable Pinot Noir worth seeking out. Drink now-2016." - Neal Martin

Quinta da Murta Bucelas Arinto 2013 White Portuguese Wine
Quinta da Murta Bucelas Arinto 2013 White Portuguese Wine

2012 Vintage: "Exuberant and fresh nose with notes of lemon, lime, apple, tropical fruit and some floral and mineral background evidence. Body well balanced and creamy. Long and persistent finish. To enjoy at any time either in “primeur” or in “vin de garde” with aromas developing years after years. Ideal with any type of raw or grilled seafood and fish, lean meats, pasta, noodle and exotic spicy cuisine." - The Vineyard "Arinto is a unique cepage whose origin is Bucelas, Portugal. It grows in medium-sized bunches, tightly packed with small grapes. The characteristics of the taste of Arinto are intense yet discreet, aromatic, citrus, apple and tropical with stylish texture and firmness. It finishes long with rewarding flavors. Characterized by its lively high acidity and freshness, even in hot climate, giving a great vibrant white and sparkling wine full of character, capable for long guard, but also delicious young. Arinto develops with age a bouquet of lemon and vanilla softwood. Grapes become greatest in its natural terroir Bucelas." - The Vineyard
