(N0203-101) 16 BORNE OF FIRE THE BURN COLUMBIA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON (12% off if ordered by Feb 17Feb 17)  $21.99
U.S. Newly Available 02/03
Wine & Spirits 91: 'The fruit for this wine comes from 'The Burn,' a portion of the Columbia Valley near the river between the Gorge and the Horse Heaven Hills. It's cooler than Horse Heaven, which may account for the thoroughly refreshing evergreen streak that runs through this wine's extracted plum flavors and saturating, light-bending tannins. A great price and flavor profile for skirt steak with chimichurri.'

(N0203-119) 16 RIDGE DUSI RANCH PASO ROBLES ZINFANDEL  $35.99
U.S. Newly Available 02/03
(stocked regularly and IN STOCK as of Dec 17) Wine Spectator 92; Underground Wine Letter - OUTSTANDING/OUTSTANDING PLUS: 'This wine is made from the historic Dusi Ranch Zinfandel vineyard in Paso Robles. Ridge's first wine from Dusi Ranch was in 1967. The vines here are all Zinfandel and over 85 years old. Today the vineyard is farmed by the second generation of the Dusi family. This is yet another great example of the long term benefits of a coordinated effort between the farmers and the wine makers. Zinfandel is unique to California. And, the old Zinfandels from Paso Robles are legendary. But a lot of the old vineyards disappeared during prohibition. Dusi is one of the survivors. The wines are characteristically very rich and intense. Year after year, this Zinfandel is a shining example of the quality of old vine Zinfandel fruit. The 2016 is no exception. Production returned to normal in 2016 after a wet winter and 4,000 cases were produced as compared with only 2000 cases in 2015. The wine is dark in color and has a lovely perfume of plum and blackberry fruit with faint hints of spice and chocolate. Rich and full with soft underlying tannins, the flavors show a myriad of black fruits with faint hints of chocolate and spice. The wine was impressive when first opened, but tasted over several days it continued to soften and become even more expressive. Yet another classic California Zinfandel, this Dusi Ranch bottling continues to offer great value. $35.'

SOUTH AFRICA Newly Available 02/03
(stocked regularly and IN STOCK as of Dec 17) Wine & Spirits 94 - BEST BUY: 'Drought conditions followed by a cool harvest season produced a stunning version of Adi Badenhorst's entry-level chenin. He took an unusual approach in 2018, harvesting the fruit over the course of 12 days and adding each day's fruit to the already-fermenting musts. All of it was whole-bunch pressed, and one-quarter was fermented in old casks, the rest in tanks. Left on its lees for seven months with occasional stirring, the final wine is as deep and rich in flavor as its yellow hue predicts: It moves from waxy apple flavors to mango, wildflower honey and tangerine. It feels all of a piece, bright acidity holding the flavors taut and firm, a large-boned chenin fit for a crown roast of pork. All that for $16.'
