Andrew scored this wine: 93/100

Gorgeous, long, pure, and smooth. Oodles of black cherry, raspberry and anise take on black tea, dried flowers and dried tobacco in the mid palate and the finish. Exquisite Barb for under 45 bucks. 93 Points.

Andrew scored this wine: 91/100

This is dynamic Carm, with loads of black plum and black cherry character. Herbs, menthol, baking spice, cigar box and dried purple flowers round out the finish. This is a very good line of products from Errazuriz. 91 Points.

Andrew scored this wine: 95/100

This is classic quality Rioja. Amazing in all facets. It’s incredible density of fresh fruit is matched with dried fruit, dried herbs, sassafras, cola, graphite and root tonics. My favourite Rioja producer.

Viña Pedrosa La Navilla

Perez Pascuas Viña Pedrosa La Navilla 2014

Ribera Del Duero D.O., Spain

Andrew scored this wine: 93/100

This is a stunning wine that only comes into its own after a couple hours of decanting. It’s still a baby, but it shows lots of crushed rock, blackberries, mesquite wood, crushed violets, scorched earth, marshmallow root, and leather. Drink now through 2030. 93 Points.
