Boomtown by Dusted Valey-2018-Merlot
The 2018 Merlot offers aromas of cherry hand pie, peppered pastrami, blueberry compote, and magnolia blossom with a chewy, crisp, dry medium-to-full body and a peppery, refreshing, medium-length leather, carob, black licorice, and firm plum finish with chewy tannins. A powerful, dry, chewy Merlot for rich meals; great for Cab-drinkers.
Style differs according to the region of production and according to the relative proportions of Gamay and Pinot grapes in its make-up. There are glints of mauve and fuchsia in its colour. A light, fresh, well-fruited wine with immediate appeal. If its vivacity is due to the Gamay grapes, it is the Pinot grapes which lend it its mellow serenity. The attack is lively and strong on fruit. Well-textured, it develops aromas of underbrush, game, and brandied cherries.
Camino de Navaherreros 2018
The intensely floral bouquet offers aromas of strawberry, raspberry, rose, magnolia, and Asian spices; similar to a rustic Pinot Noir, but the body an weight is very much old vine Grenache. Eighty-year-old vines offer fresh and energetic fruit in the mouth, with sweet red berry flavors unfettered by tannins. The spiciness is mirrored on the finish, which is long and very pure. CRITICAL ACCLAIM RP90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The young red 2018 Camino de Navaherreros comes from an extremely balanced vintage, when it rained when it was needed, the summer wasn't too warm and the wines turned out like a more complete version of the 2016s. To make a long story short, 2018 seems to be the finest Gredos vintage in the last few years, and that's quite evident in the Bernabeleva range, especially when tasted next to the 2017s. But there is no lack of ripeness here; the grapes ripened properly, and the wine has deep aromas and flavors, fine-grained tannins and some seriousness within its approachable style. A great vintage for Camino de Navaherreros. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled between June and November 2019.

JD93Jeb Dunnuck Leading off the Châteauneuf-du-Papes, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a gem that’s loaded with notions of ripe strawberries, kirsch, garrigue, and spice. It has everything in the right places, a layered, elegant profile, moderate tannins, and impeccable balance. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years. RP93Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Savory notes of clove and leather add nuance to the rich fruit of the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape. It's full-bodied, creamy, lush, plump with red berries and stone fruit and remains fresh and fruit-driven through the long finish. It should drink well for a decade or more.
Domaine de Pallus Cab
Since the debut 2004 vintage, Les Pensees has grown in stature with each passing vinage. It is assembled from parcels on several different soil types, with the aim to define "Chinon" in a glass. It reveals classic Loire Valley Cabernet Franc aromas and flavors, but with remarkable precision and the kind of textural depth that is rarely seen in Chinon. Critical Acclaim WS92Wine Spectator Juicy, ripe and still a bit compact, with a solid core of cassis, plum and blackberry fruit inlaid with alluring ganache, singed bay leaf and black tea notes. Shows good grip through the finish, with smoldering tobacco details. There’s lots here, just needs to unwind. Best from 2018 through 2025. RP91Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The dark purple ruby-colored 2014 Chinon Les Pensées de Pallus Cabernet Franc has an intense, pure and fresh, well-concentrated bouquet of dark berries, crushed stones, spices, pencil lead and floral aromas. Medium to full-bodied, intense and juicy, with perfectly ripe dark fruit flavors, firm tannins and a delicate acidity, this is an excellent and persistent Cabernet Franc with a long and aromatic finish. The velvety textured 2014 is in great balance and reveals a fascinating tension on the finish. A beautiful wine with beef or liver. Rating: 91+
Domaine Drouhin-2017-Pinot Noir
The 2017 Dundee Hills offers a fragrant nose of bright black cherries, berry bramble, orange peel, golden brown spices and a touch of sweet oak. Layered behind are notes of red berries and rhubarb. Flavors of red plum, boysenberry and cassis mingle with a savory trio of white pepper, forest floor and sassafras. Elusive and elegant, this wine is wonderful now but will be in a perfect place with 5 – 12 years of cellaring.
Eladio Pineiro Albarino

Joseph Drouhin Gevrey-Chambertin
Gevrey-Chambertin is a wine with a beautiful, bright ruby color. Intensely fruity on the nose, the aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, wild blackberry and licorice. The woody character is subtle and marries delicately with the other aromas. As the wine evolves, there are more complex notes, such as mild spice, nutmeg and leather. Later still, mushroom and damp earth nuances make their appearance. Although present on the palate, tannin is never astringent but blends itself harmoniously with the natural freshness and "gras" (velvety texture) of the wine. The same aromas encountered earlier on the nose are found again in the aftertaste. Gevrey-Chambertin could be served with beef bourguignon, coq au vin, grilled meat and great cheeses. Critical Acclaim D93Decanter The secret ingredient in this impressive village Gevrey-Chambertin is the inclusion of 25% Premier Cru grapes, which add a little more texture and concentration to the blend. With adroitly handled 20% whole bunches and new wood, it's spicy, sweet and textured with sappy acidity and notes of summer pudding and aromatic kitchen spices. RP90Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Village from Maison Drouhin has turned out very nicely, offering up an inviting bouquet of ripe cherries, plums, smoked meats and dried flowers.

Leitz Dragonstone-2018- Resling
While Johannes’ dry wines solidified his reputation in Germany and throughout Europe, no other wine made him as popular in the US as did Dragonstone. Coming from the Rüdesheimer Drachenstein, the pure quartzite soil, being a silicate, lends a saltiness to the orange citrus-flavored wine which buffers the acidity and counterbalances the palpable sugar.
Los Monteros Cava Brut,NV
Pale yellow in color with green tones, the nose is very clean with delicate floral notes. The palate is creamy – from the fine mousse, well balanced with citrus flavors and a long finish.

Remelluri Reserva Tempranillo
A wine full of black fruit and spice with a rich, luxurious texture supported by a strong tannic spine. Blend: : 90% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha, 5% Graciano Critical Acclaim RP93Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The flagship 2012 Reserva was cropped from a year when they started seeing the results of improvements made to the work in the vineyards that started in 2010. 2012 was not as warm and ripe as 2011, and the wine comes through as a nice balance between power and elegance, with some earthiness, good fruit and a fine palate. It has a personality between the Labastida and San Vicente bottlings of the Lindes bottlings.

Starmont Chardonnay is crafted to enjoy with food or simply by the glass. The goal is to retain the focus on the unique Chardonnay fruit expression of Carneros—bright citrus and apple, along with modest tropical fruit notes and spice.

STEPHEN VINCENT-2018-CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Watermark Cab Sauv
91 Points Wine Enthusiast! This cabernet sauvignon has aromas of cassis, bittersweet chocolate and vanilla with notes of cedar and anise. Oak comes through to complete this full bodied wine. The entry is sweet with a plum and cassis character continuing to please the palate as the vanilla, oak, chocolate and toast notes come to play. This is the personal project of Phil Steinschriber, winemaker at Diamond Creek Vineyards. He moves south to a cooler mountain atmosphere to craft a classically styled big red, dusty in tannin and flourishes of dried sage and cedar. Red plum and currant counterbalance in restrained fruit. This wine is great now but can be laid down until 2019 or beyond.
Yves Cuilleron Marsanne Les Vignes d'a Cote - 2018
A lovely floral white from the longstanding Yves Cuilleron winery in the Rhône region produced in 2018 from Marsanne grapes. A medium bodied wine with a good balance of floral and mineral, making it a great match for white meat or shellfish. “In the space of a decade, Yves Cuilleron has established himself as one of the leading lights of France’s Northern Rhone…He is a modernist but not overtly so his wines straddle neatly the divide between traditionalists and the new-wave, in the sense that they retain their sense of place, but express their site in a slightly more approachable, immediate way. There’s purity to the fruit, and where new oak is used it isn’t excessive.” Wineanorack.com In 1987 Yves took over his family wine estate (after 4 generations) located in Verlieu (in the town of Chavanay) and since that time he has built an entirely new winery. He has acquired additional vineyards (domaine is now 52 hectares) that cover appellations, including Saint Joseph, Cote Rotie, Cornas, Condrieu, Saint Péray and a series of Vin de Pays from the Collines Rhodaniennes. His philosophy in the vineyard is simple and very much a sustainable approach, no insecticides/pesticides only organic ones, majority is high density planted (competition between vines enhances fruit quality), handpicked fruit (much of vineyard is on terraces). Similarly in the winery a natural approach: wild yeasts, no additions, open fermenters (temperature controlled), maturation in french oak barriques and foudres (his wines are more about purity of fruit and he goes easy on the oak). 2018 was an excellent growing season talked about with the richness of 2017 and with the energy of 2016 . Fine balance and relative freshness.This Marsanne brims with white flowers, citrus, apples, stone fruit flavours, its juicy, textured and balanced by lip smacking freshness.
