  • Concha y Toro Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Chile 2016


    Lightly herbal and red fruit notes of cherry and raspberry. A bit tart and somewhat astringent on the palate with more red fruit - raspberry, cherry and red currant with some black fruit notes of plum and blackberry as well. Approachable and ready to drink with a grip of tannin on the finish and some chocolate and coffee notes. Read More

  • Frei Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Alexander Valley 2015


    Creamy dark chocolate and vanilla extract aromas, oaky and full aromas with blackberries and black currant preserves. A bit of tartness on the palate to start with a creamy texture throughout, grainy tannins and milk chocolate with blackberry jam towards the finish and a fruity, vanilla palate that finishes with good length and depth. 89 pts Read More

  • Zichichi Cabernet Sauvignon Pyramid Vineyard 2013


    Very dark in the glass. Nose of dark fruit. Dark fruit on entryblackberry, blueberry. Still quite stiff tannin. With the acid content, I think this one would be fine laying sideways for a few more years. Read More

  • San Pedro 1865 Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley 2014


    Inviting aromas of black fruit and dark spice, with crushed flower petals and expressive black currant jam notes. In the mouth this is approachable, clean and fruity - full of blackberry, black currant and black cherry flavors, thick, chunky tannins and a smoky, dry and oaky finish. Good texture, balance and full fruit. Very nice. 89 pts Read More

  • Villa S. Andrea Chianti Classico 2013


    Friendly, fruity aromas of perky cherry, blueberry and allspice with some restrained earth showing on the nose. The tart muted cranberry fruit, toasted char and mineral earth on the palate is quite striking for its lack of fruit after the expansive fruit on the nose. Read More

    Blueberry and cherry preserves and plum paste on the nose with pleasant baking spice notes. Brightly fruited on the palate with black cherry, confectioner's sugar, molasses and blueberries, notes of chocolate and brown sugar, chunky tannins and a whiskey barrel oak finish. Read More
