(N0904-101) 12 FORCE MAJEUR COLLABORATION PTERA FORCE MAJEUR VINEYARD RED MOUNTAIN RED  $59.95
U.S. Newly Available 09/04
Parker 95: 'A new wine that's a blend of equal parts Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2012 Ptera is another sensational effort. Blueberry, black raspberry, lead pencil, violets and graphite all give way to a full-bodied, ultra-pure red that has impeccable balance, fine tannin and a great finish. Made by Todd Alexander, drink it anytime over the coming decade or more.'

(N0904-102) 13 LAUREL GLEN SONOMA MOUNTAIN CABERNET SAUVIGNON  $74.95
U.S. Newly Available 09/04
Wine & Spirits 94: 'This is formal, almost austere cabernet, with the same deep, black tannins that you find in many of the great 2013s from Napa Valley, just presented in a slightly cooler tone. At first, there's a pretty, foresty scent and an impression of dark mineral structure dammed up behind a layer of French oak. Give it a day of air, and its savory flavors explode, saturating the senses with smoky, woodsy spice that feels connected to the rocky volcanic soil and forests of Sonoma Mountain rather than oak barrels. It's massive yet refreshing, with floral detail in the end-a wine to keep in the cellar for at least a decade.'

(N0904-104) 13 SILVERADO GEO MT. GEORGE VINEYARD COOMBSVILLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON  $74.95
U.S. Newly Available 09/04
Tasting Panel 95; Wine & Spirits 93: 'Ron and Diane Disney Miller purchased part of the Cedar Knolls vineyard in Coombsville in 1987, a site first planted in 1868. They renamed the vineyard Mt. George, after the volcano that contributed to the deep, gravelly loam soils on these southern Napa hills. The cabernet sauvignon they planted there in 1990 grew a supple 2013, the fruit fresh and savory, completely saturating the velvet texture of the tannins. There's earthen power in those tannins, carrying substantial extract, yet the wine feels clean and gracious. Lovely now, this will likely be best ten years from the vintage.'

ARGENTINA Newly Available 09/04
Decanter 96; Parker 94: 'The 2014 Eggo Tinto de Tiza is a blend from three different vineyards in Tupungato Winelands in Gualtallary. It's a blend of mostly Malbec with some Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. As is the case with the whole Eggo range, the wine didn't see any oak, and in this case it was matured in egg-shaped cement vats for one year. There are violets, plums, dark cherries and something earthy. This is slightly riper than the 2013. The medium-bodied palate has is fresh with a silky texture, pure flavors and a mineral-driven finish. At this price I'd buy it by the case. Super! Now-2020. $30.'
