97 Pts & Platinum – Decanter World Wine Awards 2019

“This is delicious! Finds a good gear and runs with it through to a lengthy finish. Seductive cherry, graphite, sweet spice and red forest fruit aromas flow onto a beautifully harmonious and complex palate, conveying a tender texture of dark cherry and plummy fruit that’s carried by perfectly pitched tannins. The flavours linger long in the mouth. It will make many red wine devotees swoon.”

 

Pierre Sparr Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Mambourg 2018 +915157 $28.95

On the nose, we distinguish the typical aromas of Gewurztraminer. The rich side is spices and peppered, the fruity side is litchi and exotic fruits. In the mouth, we find the rich and fruity sides too with notes of honey. A right, clear, round, well melded and well balanced wine. A beautiful harmony acidity/sugar which represents the authenticity of Mambourg. This wine already expresses the main part of its potential, in full maturity. Of course, a wine of delight.

Food pairing: goose liver pasty, roasted duck with oranges ginger sauce, Risotto with white truffles, hare with gingerbread sauce, saddle of venison with caramelized apple columns and cranberries.

95 Pts & Gold – Decanter World Wine Awards 2020

J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 +686584 $49.95

“The 2018 J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon is effusive with fresh varietal aromas of black cherry and hints of toasted pastry and baking spice on the nose. Dense and soft on the palate. Elegant layers of black and red currants leave a bright finish.” – Brenden Wood, red winemaker
93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec

Food pairing: Delicious with rosemary-seasoned ribeye and garlic roasted potatoes with parsnips and fennel.

94 Pts – Rich Cook, winereviewonline.com, June 1, 2021

“This vintage of J. Lohr’s Hilltop Cabernet carries more structure than previous vintages, and I’ve tasted it a few times prior to this date. I am happy to report that it’s starting to show itself nicely. Blackberry, olive and brown spice aromas translate perfectly on the palate, and the firmness pushes everything through a finish that’s just beginning to open up. Cellar this a while – it’s going to turn out to be one of the best vintages they’ve offered”

 

Luis Segundos Correas Valle Las Acequias Malbec Oak 2017 +138412 $18.95

Colour is an intense, deep ruby red with masked violets. Red fruits with subtle notes of tobacco and chocolate. The oak provides this wine elegance and soft vanilla touches. Concentrated, balanced tannins and great persistence.

Food pairing: Excellent to accompanying red meat and cheeses.

93 Pts – James Suckling, April 2, 2020

“A spicy nose, diffusing lots of anise and black pepper, as well as ripe strawberries and raspberries. Very pretty and arresting. The palate falls on the elegant side of malbec with lots of vibrancy and transparency. Very smooth, poised and nimble. Very drinkable. Drink now.”

 

Bodegas LAN, LAN Gran Reserva 2012 +928622 $33.95

Garnet with ruby hues. Aromas of ripe red fruits combined with spicy notes from the aging in oak (Vanilla, cinnamon, fennel, liquorice root) and tertiary aromas (Leather, cigar box…) from its prolonged bottle aging. Full bodied and round, its mouthfeel is elegant and very well balanced. 94% Tempranillo, 6% Mazuelo

93 Pts – James Suckling, October 5, 2021

“A fragrant nose of blackberry, blueberry, cedar, bay leaf, walnut, vanilla and cigar box. Medium-to full-bodied with powdery tannins. Chewy and structured with a firm, flavorful finish. Drink or hold.”

 

Firriato Quater Vitis Rosso IGP Terre Siciliane 2014 +93260 $23.95

Intense and dark ruby red with lively shades of purple. It affords marvelous and intense hints of cherries soaked in alcohol, blackcurrants and bilberries that alternate with hints of chocolate, pepper, blond tobacco, and cloves set against a balmy and minty backdrop. Fleshy and dense, it overwhelms the taste buds with sure confidence seducing them with the great fruity body, vibrant and powerful acidity and an array of noble, extremely fine, soft and caressing tannins. The hallmark of a warm and fascinating Mediterranean wine with a regal elegance; so juicy, delightful and smooth that you can almost bite into it; it lingers unceasingly and immaculately; it is a perfect symphony of four of Sicily’s best grapes.
100% Nero d’Avola, Perricone, Frappato and Nerello Cappuccio

3 Glasses – Gambero Rosso 2018

88 Pts – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, May 1, 2020

“Aged in wood for a year, this wine has a smooth texture that allows space for some dusty tannins as well as ripe blackberry fruits. Lightly smoky and structured, the wine has a bright future. Drink from 2023.”
