  • 2001 Faustino Rioja I Gran Reserva

    A beautiful, light ruby color in the glass straight to the rim. Aromas of strawberry and bing cherry mix with hints of cigar box, cola and wild spice. The palate shows excellent depth while remaining vibrant- there are layers of flavor that keep revealing themselves with each sip, but the wine does not feel tired in the least. The finish is long and complex, and makes you want to come back for more. This is drinking beautifully now and should continue to impress for at least another 5+ years.

  • 2011 Domaine Puy Redon Bergerac Sec Grand Vin

    90 Points, Zachys Buying Team: “The 2011 is the first vintage to be released of this miniscule production rebel wine project from Bordeaux’s neighboring region of Bergerac and the team behind the iconic Saint Emilion - Château Angélus. It is a unique Chardonnay blend with a touch of Petit Manseng and Sauvignon Blanc. This is a great pop and pour white that offers some complexity and a spectrum of nuances at this price point. Expect notes of apple, lemon peel, grassiness, acacia honey, a touch of oak, and minerality - a signature from the calcareous soils of the region. There is a yin-yang component with its rich glycerin texture and high acidity that makes for a great food wine. Pair with Asian-based lemongrass dishes or a classic goat cheese."
