2014 Palacios Petalos Mencia
Bierzo, Spain
The aromas, are phenomenal, very complete and balanced, with an extra degree of complexity. There is great volume in the palate, fleshy, juicy and rich without being heavy, medium-bodied, There’s always a subdued minerality, a texture and mouthfeel difficult to find in wines of this price level. This is approachable now, but it will be better in one year and should develop nicely in bottle. this rich, velvet-textured red made from 60-100 year old Mencía vines grown on steep hillsides in Bierzo.

Sourced from Mendoza’s Primera Zona of Maipu and Lujan de Cuyo the Mendoza blend is meant to showcase the exceptional value and approachable profile of Malbec. The wine’s soft, drinkable style is accompanied by light oak aging for additional complexity. A rich and round textured malbec with loads of chocolate, dried berry and hints of vanilla character. Full and flavorful. 91 Pts James Suckling

2015 Luce Lucente
Tuscany, Italy
Sangiovese & Merlot
A deep red colour with purple highlights. The wine’s bouquet is complex: fruity notes of black cherry and small red fruits are enhanced by moderately toasted scents; pleasant vanilla and lightly roasted coffee beans linger delicately in the background. Well rounded with silky tannins that bestow a balanced and harmonious structure, this is an eminently elegant and enjoyable wine. 89 Pts Wine Spectator
