Planet Oregon 2016 Pinot Noir
90 Pts. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The pale to medium ruby-purple colored 2016 Planet Oregon Pinot Noir is scented of warm black cherries, blueberry and boysenberry preserves with touches of tar, black pepper and petrichor. Light to medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with warm, ripe black and blue fruits laced with spice and earth with soft tannins and great juicy, mouthwatering acidity on the warm-fruited finish. Yum!"
Douloufakis Dafnios 2016 Red Wine
A delightful and unusual wine that has generated interest in the palates of sophisticated wine consumers and restless wine lovers. The 2016 vintage displays a ruby color with a fruity, spicy nose. Round, mellow texture. Elegant and mouthfilling. Guaranteed to delight any Liatiko fan.
Castano Solanera 2015 Red Blend
92 Pts. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2015 Solanera used to wear the ultimate Spanglish label, which said "Viñas Viejas of Monastrell" even if it was always a blend. The revamped 2015 has a completely different label that only keeps the "viñas viejas" moniker. In this wine, from the joint venture with U.S. importer Eric Solomon that started in 1999, they used part of full clusters and sourced the grapes from Casa Marta, a nine-hectare, head-pruned, dry-farmed plot on very stony soils in the north of Yecla at the foot of the Mount Arabí. It fermented in concrete vats and open-top barrels and matured in barrique, each variety separately, for some ten months, after which it was blended and bottled. This is the vintage of the big change in this wine, where, as with the majority of its siblings, there is better balance and more integrated oak, more freshness and better balance. The nose is quite captivating, especially after some time in the glass, when it starts developing some floral aromas, perfect ripeness, no warmth or alcohol and a powerful, yet terribly balanced palate with concentration and elegance, fine-grained tannins and clean, focused flavors. This is my favorite Solanera to date.
Boya 2016 Sauvignon Blanc
Leyda Valley, Chile
92 Pts. Wine & Spirits ...a more familiar Leyda-like face of the grape, growing in the cool San Antonio Valley. Here the acidity is a thin firm line revealing rich salt minerality, citrus & herbal flavors. The texture is both light and tight with a refreshing finish reminiscent of the juice of freshly squeezed limes. Ideal for oysters.
