(N0313-102) 14 ELK COVE GOODRICH WILLAMETTE VALLEY PINOT NOIR  $47.99
U.S. Newly Available 03/13
Parker 92: ‘The 2014 Goodrich Pinot Noir is about 40% whole cluster this year, certain blocks 100% whole cluster and others destemmed. Maceration is via pumpovers with plunging only at the end of fermentation. It has a blackberry and briary scented bouquet with subtle earthy tones, nicely defined but tightly coiled at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with soft and supple texture and it is difficult to discern the whole cluster fruit, that is to say there is hardly any stemminess in this wine. Instead there is plenty of spice towards the finish with black pepper and clove notes infusing the black fruit. This delivers style and class and (of course) it comes recommended. $60.'

(N0313-106) 14 BECKMEN PURISIMA MOUNTAIN SANTA BARBARA SYRAH  $29.99
U.S. Newly Available 03/13
Parker 92: ‘A fabulous value that delivers on all accounts, the inky colored 2014 Syrah Purisima Mountain (100% Syrah aged 16 months in 35% new French oak) knocks it out of the park with its ripe, decadent black fruits, barbecue smoke, licorice and smoked meat-laced aromas and flavors. Rich, fat and unctuous on the palate, with plenty of freshness and purity, it tastes like it costs two to three times the price. 2016-2022.'

(stocked regularly) Parker 92: ‘The 2014 Milk & Honey checks in as an interesting blend of 30% Tempranillo, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Syrah and the rest Grenache, Mourvedre and Petit Verdot. It offers lots of sweet black currant fruit, cedar, toasted bread, leather and dried herbs in a savory, forward and nicely textured style. There's a firm edge to the tannin (no doubt from the Tempranillo), so give it a year, and drink bottles over the following 5-6.'

(N0313-133) 07 RIOJA GRAN RESERVA ESPECIAL CASTILLO YGAY, MARQUES DE MURRIETA  $89.95
SPAIN Newly Available 03/13
(stocked regularly) Parker 95+: ‘A worthy follow-up of the 2005, the 2007 Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial will be released in late 2015. This is a cuvée of mostly Tempranillo with the balance of Mazuelo (Cariñena), a very important grape for Castillo de Ygay in percentages that vary depending on the vintage, and it's almost 15% in 2007. 2007 was not an easy vintage and in Ygay they had a terrible mildew attack and they lost 50% of the bunches. It's a cold, rainy year, but because of that circumstance the wine is concentrated. This is still a baby, long and with depth and tannins that should melt in a couple of years. Compared with the 2005 it is fresher, perhaps not as concentrated, but for me the extra freshness compensates and puts it at a very similar quality level. And the rule of thumb is to wait at least ten years after the harvest to start uncorking any Castillo de Ygay. Cheap it is not, but very good value it is, for the quality it delivers. There will be no Castillo de Ygay in 2008, but there will be 2009, 2010 and 2011. That's something exceptional to have three vintages in a row. $99.'
