Clos De Los Siete 2013

Mendoza, Argentina
13 days ago

Andrew scored this wine: 92/100

This is glossy and fine-grained. Black cherries, black plum, macerated blackberry, scrub brush, camphor and hot stone. A touch of black truffle and semi-sweet chocolate on the finish. This has benefited from time in bottle. Pair with beef. 92 Points.

This wine is simply superb. Uber crisp with squeezed meyer lemon, verbena, unripe melon, and pressed yellow flowers. This pairs superbly with white fish in a dill and lemon compound butter. Drink now through 2024. 92 Points.

Veraton

Alto Moncayo Veraton Garnacha 2015

Campo De Borja D.O., Spain
15 days ago

Andrew scored this wine: 94/100

This is an absolutely stunning offering, loaded with black briars, macerated plums, oak, warm spice, meat blood, smoke, crushed rocks, fresh garrigue and purple flowers. The finish is endless. Pair with roasted red meats. Drink now through 2026.

Lirac

Xavier Vignon Lirac 2016

Rhône A.P., France

Andrew scored this wine: 91/100

I love this 2016, although it is still a baby and needs to flesh out a bit. The X-factor potential is huge, though. Lots of garrigue-laced purple fruit and black briars along with mesquite, camphor and graphite. Drink in 2020. 91 Points.

El Corte

Zaha El Corte 2014

Toko Vineyard, Paraje Altamira, Mendoza, Argentina

Andrew scored this wine: 93/100

This falls into my “insanity” category. It’s dense and rich but also lively and fresh. Loaded with savoury herbs, crushed dark berries and macerated plum. On the finish is linzer torte and Black Balzams liqueur. You can’t beat this price. 93 Points
