U.S. Newly Available 08/28
(stocked regularly) Parker 93: 'The 2013 Proprietary Red 19 Block Mountain Cuvee is a blend of 61% Malbec, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Syrah, all from the estate on Mt. Veeder. This blend has worked well, exhibiting an opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of incense, camphor, blackberry, licorice and a touch of espresso. It is full-bodied and concentrated, but with supple tannins and a roundness and juiciness - even for a 2013. This should age nicely for at least 10 or more years. $40.'

U.S. Newly Available 08/28
Wine Enthusiast 93: 'Dark, potent and concentrated, this unusually bold wine pushes fruit flavors and tannins to the limit without going over the edge. It has gorgeous, dark-fruit aromas and flavors from blueberry to blackberry, while dark chocolate washes over the palate in waves. Layers of fine-grained tannins keep the palate anticipating that next bite of barbecue or lamb chop.'

U.S. Newly Available 08/28
Wine Enthusiast 92 - EDITORS' CHOICE: 'Stunningly good for an entry-level Pinot Noir, this new Tavola gets the sort of care generally reserved for reserves. Native yeast fermentation and almost a year in 20% new French oak is where it starts; then a barrel selection is made and it's bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep flavors emphasize black fruits, with a dash of pepper highlighting the finish.'

(N0828-111) 15 RIDGE 50TH VINTAGE GEYSERVILLE VINEYARD SONOMA RED  $38.99
U.S. Newly Available 08/28
(stocked regularly) Underground Wine Letter - OUTSTANDING PLUS: 'Just recently Ridge was able to buy this vineyard from the owners who have been selling the fruit to Ridge for all these years. The average age of vines here is about 50 years with the oldest vines more than 125 years old. The vineyard is mostly Zinfandel with some Carignane and lesser amounts of Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouchet, and Mataro. Geyserville is consistently a gorgeous wine that will keep for decades. This 50th vintage bottling is no exception. And, if I were to choose one great red California wine that year in and year out delivers the best bang for the buck Geyserville would be at the top of my list. It is made with 70% Zinfandel, 15% Carignane, 12% Petite Sirah, and 3% Alicante Bouchet. Dark in color this Geyserville has a deep complex perfume with a myriad of black fruits showing faint spice and cedar tinges. On the palate there is great intense fruit that is harmonious and balanced with great underlying structure and soft tannins. Over time more complexities will evolve and the fruit will persist. This is a great Geyserville in the making. All it needs is more bottle age. Although delicious now for the fruit, patience here will be well rewarded.'

(stocked regularly) Parker 93; Wine Enthusiast 94: 'This bottling screams white earth, with a chalk- and riverstone-like minerality and clotted cream and lemon scents. That minerality carries through to the palate, where a chalky note blends with Asian pear and marshmallow. It's a study in how to present delicate flavors with pizzazz, which the Talley family has been known to do. $38.'

ARGENTINA Newly Available 08/28
(stocked regularly) Vinous 90: '60% of this wine was aged in oak. Bright medium ruby. Vibrant, penetrating aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violet and bitter chocolate; an essence of Malbec. Dense and seamless but youthful and light on its feet, showing lovely restrained sweetness but noteworthy thickness and depth to its pure, vibrant flavors of crushed dark berries and bitter chocolate. This suave, concentrated Malbec should open out beautifully with a few years of cellaring. Finishes with firm, ripe tannins and excellent sneaky length and energy. This is an awfully good value. 2018-2024.'

(stocked regularly) Vinous 91: 'The 2014 Lanessan is gorgeous. Wild cherry, herb and tobacco give the wine its distinctive savory aromatic profile, while firm tannins add energy. The result is a touch rustic, but it is also immensely pleasing. There is lovely depth in the glass, although the 2014 appears to have shut down a bit post-bottling. 2018-2026.'

(N0828-127) 13 BOURGOGNE BLANC CHAUMES DES PERRIERES, DOMAINE DUPONT FAHN  $39.99
FRANCE BURGUNDY Newly Available 08/28
(stocked regularly) Here's the scoop on the vineyard. It was a fallow plot lying within the boundaries of Meursault le Dos d'Ane and Chaumes des Perrieres when purchased by Raymond's grandfather in 1975. Fallow because this rocky, calcareous parcel was covered with soil too shallow to bear new vines. His grandfather asked for and received permission to add eight inches of topsoil to the section. This desecration of terroir incited his neighbors to get the vineyard declassified from Meursault to Bourgogne Blanc. Fair enough while the vines were young, but now, at age 37, their roots are well down into the original soil and subsoil of Meursault le Dos d'Ane and Chaumes des Perrieres, and the wines talk the Meursault talk. Quite full but more reticent than the 2012 tasted side by side./ Jawbreaker extract concentration. Whoa! It's got the stuff. 94+/100.

FRANCE MEDITERRANEAN Newly Available 08/28
(stocked regularly) Parker 90: 'A custom cuvee created by importer Eric Solomon, the 2015 IGP Cotes Catalanes Novellum is a smokin' value that's made from 100% Chardonnay that spent three months in tank (on Viognier lees) followed by three months in barrel. Tasting like it cost three times the price, it offers lots of orchard fruits, white peach, honeysuckle and a hint of vanilla to go with a medium to full-bodied, crisp, yet still textured and mouth-filling style on the palate. You can't go wrong at the price and this is a terrific wine to enjoy over the coming year or two. $14.'

AUSTRIA Newly Available 08/28
Wine & Spirits 92: 'Although this is one of Pichler's simpler wines, a blend from several vineyards, it wins in its exquisite composure. The fruit is quiet and savory--white cherries, green olives and hard pear; the minerality comes through in a brothy richness spiked with salinity. It has the structure to age well, but it will also play backup right now to a wide range of dishes, like anything on the menu at NYC's Fung Tu.'

(stocked regularly) Vinous 90: 'Fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for three months in two- and three-year-old French oak. Inky ruby. High-pitched raspberry and cherry scents are complicated by fresh flowers, minerals and woodsmoke. Spicy and tightly focused on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering bitter cherry and red berry flavors with a hint of anise. Closes sweet, focused and long, with sneaky tannins adding grip. A lot of fruit from this estate's top vineyards wound up in this bottling this vintage. In some markets this wine is called 'Linde.'.'

(stocked regularly) Wine Enthusiast 92: 'For classic Rioja, Monte Real is always a good bet. This offering delivers textbook aromas of dried raspberry and cherry offset by fallen leaves and a pinch of seashell. The palate is still quite fresh, while black cherry, raisin, spice and cocoa flavors finish smooth and long, with a touch of oxidation and a Sherry note for added complexity.

Black and blue fruit aromas are lifted by a peppery nuance and a hint of fresh flowers. Sappy and seamless in texture, offering juicy boysenberry and mocha flavors and a bracing kick of spiciness.

This is a broad and richly extracted Tuscan red that shows soft tannins, beautiful smoothness and rich consistency. This vintage also shows an impressive level of power and intensity that adds muscle, but that also shows good balance and integration.

This wine used to be called Crabilis up until last year, in reference to a hill about 180 meters asl (590 feet asl) about 25 hectares (almost 62 acres) under vine, of which the oldest are now roughly 40 years ago.
