2015 Domaine Lafage Cotes du Roussillon Miraflors Rose
Languedoc Roussillon, France
50% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache and 20% Grenache Gris that was brought up all in stainless steel. Medium-bodied, fresh and racy, yet with solid depth of flavor, it gives up pretty strawberry, white peach and rose petal-like aromas and flavors. Drink it over the coming year. When it comes to quality-to-price ratios, no one does it better than proprietor Jean Marc Lafage.90 pts Wine Advocate

2014 Tangent Paragon Vineyard Albarino
Edna Valley, Ca
Strikes an appealing balance between crisp, clean acidity and a smooth body, with plenty of lemon-scented citrus notes and a minerally detail. Lively and vivacious, aromas suggest jasmine tea, lime, green pear while the palate blends the welcoming flavors of orange blossoms, freshly cut grass and salted celery. 88 Pts Wine Spectator

2011 Paolo Scavino Barolo
Barolo comes from the best plots of seven cru. The diversity of soils, exposure and altitude characterizes each of these small but very important terroir. Unifying these diversities, the Barolo offers harmony and complexity with an overall character of the zone.
Marked by sweet cherry, strawberry, licorice and spice flavors, with tannins that are evenly matched and offer support even as they expand on the long finish. 93 Pts Wine Spectator

2013 Ringbolt Cabernet
Margaret River , Australia
Robust and concentrated, with vanilla and sarsaparilla accents to the blackberry and cherry flavors. Dried herb notes linger on the velvety finish. Drink now through 2030. 92 Pts Wine Spectator

2014 Neyers Left Bank Red Blend
Napa, Ca
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot
Most of the vines are 25 years-old, and are planted in soil that combines basalt, gravel and clay. Yields were barely two tons per acre so the finished wine is lush and deeply aromatic, with traces of cassis, raspberry and cedar. There’s a softness that is especially attractive right now, and the wine is complex enough to turn a lot of heads.
