  1. Domaine Faury "Emporium" Cote-Rotie 2015

    Domaine Faury "Emporium" Cote-Rotie 2015

    $100.00 (NET)
    Lionel Faury is the son of Phillipe, continuing his father’s tradition of making wines that express the purity of the fruit rather than the character of oak. This comes from one Côte Rôtie vineyard called Fourvier which is dominated by schist soils. Fermentation sees retention of 20% stems and then the wine is aged for 15 months in large oak barrels. It’s ripe and really concentrated, with aromas of blackberry and wild flowers and a firm tannic structure. Drink now-2030. Learn More
  2. Domaine Faury St-Joseph 2017

    Domaine Faury St-Joseph 2017

    Location is key to quality in St-Joseph. Lionel Faury’s domaine is in the northern part of the long appellation and the vines are on steep south-facing slopes on the estate. 70% destemming leads to an integrated stalky character, along with meat, bacon, licorice, black pepper, sage, and blackberry aromas. On the palate, it’s chewy and grippy with a long, structured finish and very well-integrated oak (10% new). St-Joseph at its finest. Learn More
  3. Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage 2017

    Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage 2017

    From the son of acclaimed producer Alain Graillot, Maxime. All the fruit (from 35-year-old vines) is destemmed, spending one year in old oak with a touch of new. This is an appealing, pretty, fruit-forward Crozes with aromas of violets, plump blackberry, plum, licorice, and chocolate followed by a tighter palate with grainy tannins and high acidity. An accomplished, balanced, and restrained wine. Learn More
  4. Tetu Rose Cotes du Roussillon 2018

    Tetu Rose Cotes du Roussillon 2018

    70% Syrah, 30% Grenache from Catalan France in the Côtes du Roussillon – this is the perfect summer wine from the warmest and driest of France’s wine regions. It’s extremely refreshing, with a light, easy-drinking mouthfeel and aromas of fresh rose petals, strawberry, red cherry, and pomegranate. Immediate, engaging, and very approachable, with a juicy, fruity core that gives the wine life and vibrancy. Learn More
  5. La Ferme Rouge "Terre Rouge" Morocco 2016

    La Ferme Rouge "Terre Rouge" Morocco 2016

    This Moroccan red comes from 50km north of Casablanca and 15km from the sea, the grapes grown in the Zaer AOC at 450m altitude for an ideal balance between warmth and cooling influences. The blend is of Carignan and Syrah, resulting in an inviting nose of roses, violets, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, and black cherry, with a touch of jam, good grip on the palate and an overall easy, juicy mouthfeel. Great weekday red. Learn More
  6. Clos de Caveau "Fruit Sauvage" Vacqueyras 2016

    Clos de Caveau "Fruit Sauvage" Vacqueyras 2016

    60% Grenache, 40% Syrah. Made by the first organic winery in Vacqueyras, the fruit comes from the lowest slopes on the highest vineyard in the appellation. The wine is deceptively light, as it packs a punch beyond its appealing nose of strawberry, raspberry, and red plum with a firm tannic grip, a grainy texture, a crunchy mouthfeel, and a long spicy finish. An approachable wine that keeps on giving with every taste. Learn More
  7. Analemma Tinto Columbia Gorge 2016

    Analemma Tinto Columbia Gorge 2016

    40% Tempranillo, 40% Grenache, 20% Syrah. Founders Steven Thompson and Kris Fade were inspired by the wines of Spain, and this blend from Columbia Gorge is a delicious example of how Spanish grapes can work in Washington. It has an extremely attractive nose, with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, black pepper, tarragon, clove, and pot pourri, followed by a palate with a firm gripping texture that makes the wine nice and chewy. Very tasty. Learn More
  8. Saxum Booker Vineyard 2016

    Saxum Booker Vineyard 2016

    $185.00 (NET)
    "2016 Booker Vineyard is made from 73% Syrah and 27% Mourvèdre and saw 13% whole clusters and 100% new French oak. Inky colored, it gives up killer notes of blackberry, blueberries, crushed rock, and liquid violets in a thick, unctuous, structured and tannic style. It's a blockbuster, no doubt, but I suspect short term cellaring will be your friend." - 97-99pts, Jeb Dunnock Learn More
  9. Saxum Red Blend "Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles 2016

    Saxum Red Blend "Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles 2016

    $185.00 (NET)
    "Leading off the 2016s and checking in as interesting blend of 46% Mourvèdre, 19% Syrah, 15% Tempranillo and the balance Petite Sirah, Grenache, and Zinfandel, the 2016 Paderewski shows how good these eclectic blends from the west side of Paso Robles can be. Offering a rocking bouquet of ripe currants, plums, forest floor, truffle, and orange zest, this beauty has no hard edges and offers full body, incredible intensity, and a seamlessness pared with density that needs to be tasted to be believed. This hedonistic yet also elegant 2016 benefits from a decant and has a good 10-15 years of prime drinking ahead of it." 97pts, Jeb Dunnock Learn More
  10. Enfield "La Femme Sauvage" Syrah California 2016

    Enfield "La Femme Sauvage" Syrah California 2016

    Made with 100% whole-cluster fermentation, this is a deep, intense Syrah coming from several vineyards across northern California. An enticing nose of blackberry, cherry, and plum, wild flowers, cracked pepper, licorice, tarragon, and mint lead into a mouthfilling palate with a grainy tannic texture. Dense and structured with lively acidity, this is a complex, concentrated Syrah with great balance. Learn More
