It has plenty of oak character, but the oak is well integrated and complements the blackberry and blueberry flavors deftly. $22.'

U.S. Newly Available 09/11
Wine & Spirits 92: 'The Phelps family was one of the first to bring pinot noir to the cool hills around Freestone, when they planted on the site of an old dairy farm in 1999. Those vines grew a 2014 that smells delicious, like bay leaves and crushed wild blackberries. The fruit has a spicy verve that holds out against the constricting grip of the oak--it's a powerful coastal pinot noir to age for five years or more. $55.'

U.S. Newly Available 09/11

The firm tannins call for pairing with a rib-eye steak or barbecue. $20.'

(stocked regularly) Wine Spectator 95: 'This decidedly old-school version pumps out a rugged core of black currant, blackberry and bitter plum fruit flavors, infused with brick dust, chestnut and bay leaf notes.

(N0911-130) 14 COTES CATALANES BASTIDE MIRAFLORS, DOMAINE LAFAGE  $14.99
FRANCE MEDITERRANEAN Newly Available 09/11
(stocked regularly) Parker 92: 'A steal from Lafage is the 2014 Bastide Miraflors, which is a Cotes du Roussillon, and a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache, with the Grenache aged in concrete tanks and the Syrah in 500-liter demi-muids. Lafage makes more expensive wines than this, but certainly excels with his value lineup. He has really hit a home run with this 10,000-case cuvee. It is deep, ruby/plum/purple, with fresh notes of blackcurrants, plums, Provencal herbs as well as licorice. Deep, medium to full-bodied, with amazing fruit, the purity, authenticity and Mediterranean upbringing of this wine are obvious. Quite deep, round and succulent, this wine should drink well for another several years. This is one to buy by the case.'
