Bright ruby. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, cherry and lavender, with notes of white pepper and anise adding complexity. Very fresh and focused on entry, then deeper and more brawny in the middle, offering sappy cherry and red fruit preserve flavors. This spicy finish displays superb persistence, very good clarity and intense florality.

Coated with unctuous linzer torte, warm plum sauce and pure cassis fruit flavors, while notes of maduro tobacco, mint, green fig and toasted anise flitter throughout. This is lush and dense, but well-harnessed through the finish, with a mouthwatering roasted apple wood note and lingering fresh acidity. Best from 2014 through 2030. 4,200 cases imported. -JM (40% clairette, 30% grenache blanc and 15% each of roussanne and bourboulenc): Pale gold. Bright and racy on the nose and palate, offering lively lemon, orange and pear qualities and zesty minerality. Fleshy but dry, with very good back-end cut and finishing clarity. I like the combination of power and finesse here. This wine has a sound track record for aging and I suspect that this will be a really interesting wine five or six years down the road. ** SOLD OUT **

Performing considerably better than it did prior to bottling, the 2010 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the all-time great Vieux Telegraphes I have tasted in the last 3+ decades. I believe it is even superior to the 2007, which I had several weeks ago. The 2010 boasts a dense purple color along with a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers, boysenberries, black cherries, black currants, nori (the sushi seaweed wrapper), black olives, licorice and pepper. This full-bodied, meaty, thick, juicy effort possesses a boatload of tannin, but it also has incredible concentration. More massive than I remember from last year, it has put on considerable weight and intensity. Forget it for 3andndash;4 years, and drink it over the following 25andndash;30 years. Kudos to Daniel and Frederic Brunier!

A blend of several red varietals, The Big Bad Red blend appeases our inner dark side, satisfying that craving for the bold and daring. The wine leads with a bramble of berries, dark black plum and root beer flavors, framed by toasted spices. Fleshy and ripe, the palate delivers layers of black fruit with a savory and spicy character. Supple tannins hold flavors into a long, lasting finish. A perfect pairing for a dark and stormy night. - WineryVarietal Composition:33% Merlot,25% Syrah,11% Cabernet Sauvignon,9% Zinfandel,9% Tannat,6% Grenache,7% other redsAlcohol - 13.6 %Acidity - 5.9 g/LpH - 3.57RS - 10 g/L

This is lean and brisk, a simple, modern blend of Nero dAvola and Frappato. The tannins feel cool and zesty, breathable in their layers of earthiness. For buschetta with grilled eggplant and capers. Color: Intense ruby in colorBouquet: Dark berriesFlavor: Soft, well-rounded, full of elegance and finesse, long finishPairings: Roasted chicken or fish such as rare tuna; serve chilled - Winery

This beautifully layered wine is rich, complex and offers a sumptuous texture. It displays alluring fragrances and flavors of raspberry jam, dark chocolate, black cherry and pomegranate. Smooth tannins envelope the mouth and linger beyond each sip. - Randy Ullom, WinemasterComposition:36% Syrah34% Zinfandel19% Merlot4% Cabernet Franc4% Petite Sirah3% Other varietalsGrowing Regions:55% Mendocino County32% Sonoma County7% Santa Barbara,Monterey, San LuisObispo Counties6% Napa CountyAlcohol: 13.5%T.A.: 0.61g/100mLpH: 3.63
