U.S. Newly Available 10/15
Wine & Spirits 93: 'Showing plenty of complexity for the price, this posh cabernet has a scent of oak and black plum.

(N1015-116) 14 HIRSCH SAN ANDREAS FAULT FORT ROSS - SEAVIEW PINOT NOIR'  $64.95
U.S. Newly Available 10/15
Wine & Spirits 95: 'San Andreas is the wine that represents the entire Hirsch estate, from the ocean-influenced west ridge to the sun-warmed east ridge; in 2014, it draws from 30 of the vineyard's 61 farming blocks. It has an undeniable sense of place, capturing coastal breezes and thin sedimentary ridgetop soils in the tight weave of its tannins-the fruit caught halfway between cherry and stone, cool and shady, yet hinting at vibrant rays of sunshine. You can access its complex floral spice now, but it's still mostly structure, nowhere near maturity. Floral, foggy and mineral, it's a wine you'll want to taste in another decade.'

(N1015-118) 14 MOUNT EDEN SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS PINOT NOIR'  $59.95
U.S. Newly Available 10/15
(stocked regularly) Wine & Spirits 93: 'Jeffrey Patterson is committed to dry farming his vines, and continued through this third year of drought, when his vineyard received a total of 14 inches of rain for the season. He sustained his vines by limiting their crop, and decided to pick those concentrated grapes starting on August 4th, the earliest harvest in the estate's history. Yet despite the extremity of the season, the wine feels gracious and refined. It has the cool feel of the air in a coastal forest, mossy and piney, lasting on an earthy savor. The texture is firm and juicy, while the wine isn't overtly fruity. This should be a fascinating vintage of Mount Eden to watch as it develops over the next decade. $62.'

Black cherry, blackberry, cloves, leather and licorice give the wine its inner sweetness and textural richness, but there is also plenty of aromatic freshness and lift. Violet, camphor, savory herb and scorched earth give the wine a real sense of gravitas. Drink now-2028. $38.'

U.S. Newly Available 10/15
(stocked regularly) Wine Enthusiast 93; Tasting Panel 93: 'This flagship label is enjoying a terrific vintage. The blend of 55% Syrah, 27% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, and 5% Petit Verdot mirrors the rugged terrain on which the grapes are grown. With aromas of plum brandy, cassis, and jammy blackberry, bold flavors echo the nose. Chalky tannins are relieved by a juicy--yet meaty--quality morphing the texture to more of a silky feel. Tilled soil, violets, and white pepper lead the charge to the finish. $26.'

(stocked regularly) Parker 91-93: 'The 2015 Fourcas-Dupre offers plenty of blackberry and boysenberry fruit on the nose, a touch of brine here, a subtle marine influence that lends it complexity and personality. The palate is medium-bodied with a juicy opening, a melange of red and black fruit, taut and quite linear with plenty of freshness and tension on the finish. This is a well-crafted Listrac that punches well above my expectations. Hopefully it can retain this level after its elevage - one to keep an eye on.'
