Another winner. Made from 52% Grenache Blanc, 22% Roussanne, 17% Viognier and the balance Clairette and Bourboulenc, it exhibits outstanding notes of citrus blossom, white flowers, licorice and green apple. Medium-bodied, fresh, pretty and focused. 91 Pts Wine Advocate

2012 Bodegas Ramirez de la Piscina Crianza
Rioja, Spain
Deep ruby. Assertive scents of blueberry, blackberry, vanilla and cola, with complicating floral and licorice nuances. Sweet and pliant in the mouth, displaying good clarity and lift to its smoke-accented dark fruit and spicecake flavors. Accessible now, this wine finishes with smooth tannins and very good spicy persistence. 91 Pts Vinous

2014 Tapiz Malbec Mendoza Alta Collection
Mendoza, Argentina
A solid wine with blackberry and black pepper character. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh and cool finish. So polished and beautiful. From grapes grown in Valle de Uco. Pomerol’s legend Jean-Claude Berrouet consults here. 95 pts James Suckling

2014 Ringbolt Cabernet
Margaret River, Australia
The wine is deep crimson red, it opens with classical Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon fresh varietal notes of bright berried fruits, briar and sea spray, followed with wafts of chocolate and mocha and finishes with subtle spiced oak aromas. The medium to full bodied palate shows cherry and satsuma plum characters leading to a fruit-sweet mid palate of chocolate and mocha, finishing with defined tannins. The wine is elegant and shows great length of flavour and a well structured palate line. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
