2015 M. Chapoutier "Le Pavillon" Ermitage Rouge 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine, the 2015 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from the Bessards lieu-dit on Hermitage, which is pure granite soils. I've said it before, but will say it again, this is unquestionably the finest, most singular vineyard for Syrah in the world. Cassis, graphite, smoked herbs, liquid rocks and violet aromas give way to a huge, concentrated, opulent and off-the-charts beauty that just hints at its ultimate potential. I wouldn’t think about opening bottles for at least a decade, after which it will keep for 4-5 decades." (0 ...

2008 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep purple-black in color, the 2008 Grange puts forward a very complex nose packed with aromas of mulberries, layers of baking spices, cloves and cinnamon with nuances of minced meat, anise, potpourri and whiffs of dried mint and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, taut and very spicy in the mouth, it shows touches of sandalwood and Chinese five spice complementing the layers of dark fruit flavors. It is framed by firm, grainy tannins and a refreshing acid line before finishing very long with aniseed and lingerin ...

2017 Ferraton Père et Fils "Le Grand Courtil" Crozes-Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Spice box, cedar, black raspberries, currants, and blackberry notes all emerge from the 2017 Crozes Hermitage Le Grand Courtil and it has the bombastic fruit character of the vintage front and center. Showing more minerality with time in the glass, this medium to full-bodied beauty has remarkable purity, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish."

2017 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In need of serious air to open up, the 2017 Hermitage La Chapelle became more and more impressive the longer I kept it in the glass. At first it seemed a bit simple, if admirably plummy and rich, but by the time ten minutes had elapsed, it was showing off elegant notes of crushed stone, pencil shavings and cassis, while remaining full-bodied, rich and concentrated. It's velvety and long on the finish, but something left me wanting a bit more. It's surely a great La Chapelle, but will it reach that elusive trip ...

2017 Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné "Domaine de Thalabert" Crozes-Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

It’s a rich, rounded, sumptuous beauty that has plenty of sweet fruit, moderate tannins, and a great finish. It’s not going to match the 2015, but it’s a rocking wine I’d be thrilled to drink."

From one of the great terroirs in the appellation, this cuvée was destemmed and saw slightly more new oak than the majority of the cuvées, being brought up in 25% new barrels. 93-95+" (12/2018) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Saint Joseph Lieu-Dit ...

Very focused and driven through the finish. Cellar for maximum effect. (JM)" (09/2019) 94 points Vinous: "Glass-staining ruby.

This wine is dark and brooding in style, with charcoal-laced blackberry fruits. It's full-bodied but not massive, with real energy and drive. It's highly spiced and overly oaky, but rapier-like acidity helps to keep things dynamic. It's almost unbearably powerful at this stage, but not stodgy, and it has a long, tapered finish.

Its medium gold color is followed by a beautiful perfume of liquid rocks, flowers oil, tangerine, and citrus blossom. It has a certain exotic quality aromatically yet is classic Marsanne on the palate with medium to full body, bright acidity, plenty of fruit, and a clean, balanced finish."

2012 M. Chapoutier "L'Ermite" Ermitage Rouge 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another wine that topped out on my scale, the 523-case 2012 Ermitage l'Ermite is as profound an Hermitage as you can find. Coming from the granite soils located around the Chapel on the top of Hermitage hill, it's always the most tight, backward and structured of the releases, even more so than the Pavillon, which always seems to have another layer of sweet fruit to me. The 2012 is deeper and richer than the 2011, yet as with most 2012s, it more approachable and forward than the 2010 (and 2009 in this case). Exh ...

It's loaded with mixed blueberries and raspberries, adds subtle notes of mocha and baking spices and picks up a savory hint of black olives on the long, silky finish.

(JLL) " (03/2017) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Moving to the reds, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Côte Rozier is a serious, masculine, structured effort that’s not going to be for those looking for instant gratification.

Every bit as good as the 2010, the 2009 Cote Rotie la Turque is a flamboyant and sexy Cote Rotie that’s loaded with notions of smoked meats, blackberries, blackcurrants, beef blood and espresso roast.

2017 Ferraton Père et Fils "L'Eglantine" Cote-Rotie (Pre-Arrival)

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2017 Côte Rôtie L’Eglantine (100% Syrah, destemmed and aging in 15% new oak), a quintessential effort from these magical hillsides. Black raspberries, spring flowers, crushed rocks, violets, and incense notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, elegant, seamless effort that just glides over the palate. It's a 'wow' wine that readers should snatch up. As I’ve written in this report numerous times, the 2017s from Côte Rôtie are brilliant. " (12/2018) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Ferraton's 20 ...

2012 Torbreck "RunRig" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (3L) (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Run Rig offers a nose of baked cherries and raspberry preserves with suggestions of violets, cinnamon toast, aniseed and vanilla. Full-bodied with characteristic elegance and poise in spite almost of its power, it has a solid backbone of very finely grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing with great length. (LPB)" (06/2015) 97 points Wine Enthusiast: "RunRig is always complex, and the 2012 doesn't disappoint in that regard, mixing bacony-meaty notes with hints of b ...

2012 E. Guigal "Ex-Voto" Hermitage Rouge 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Hermitage Ex Voto (which I suspect won’t be produced again until 2015) was bottled in January of this year and it’s a big, voluptuous beauty that’s loaded with fruit and texture. Crème de cassis, black raspberries, crushed rocks and a touch of beef blood all soar from the glass of this beauty, which hits the palate with a wealth of sweet fruit, building, ripe tannin and blockbuster length. Liquid Viagra would suffice as a descriptor for this wine, and while it’s already impossible to resist today, it wil ...

2015 Guigal Côte-Rotie "Château d'Ampuis" (1.5L) 3-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Scheduled to be bottled just after this visit, the 2015 Côte Rôtie Château D'Ampuis reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of smoked black fruits, caramelized blackcurrants, leady herbs, ground pepper, and earth. It's deep, rich, massively concentrated, and a powerhouse of a wine that’s going to need bottle age, but wow, what a wine! The big news at the Guigal estate is the purchase of Domaine de Nalys in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The family has always wanted an estate in the South, and Nalys is an unr ...

2005 Henschke "Hill of Grace" Shiraz Eden Valley South Australia 3-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

99 points James Suckling: "This stamps an irrefutable claim on the very top rung of Australian Shiraz with striking blackberry fruits and a good dose of spicy complexity. There’s a bit of bracken here, fragrant rose petals, lighter fragrance, some deeper, profound aromas and impressive complexity. The palate has impossibly long drive and intricate detail, delivering an innate sense of harmony and seemingly endless length. Toasted spices float across a swathe of blackberry fruit. A landmark single-vineyard Shiraz with soul and distinction. Saturated with ...

2012 Delas Freres "Les Bessards" Hermitage 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The star of the show is the 2012 Hermitage Les Bessards. Coming from the pure granite soils of the Les Bessards lieu-dit, on the western edge of the appellation, it’s made from 100% Syrah and spent 16 months in 70% new French oak. It’s an incredible wine that offers classic powdered rock-like minerality, loads of crème de cassis and black raspberry fruit, smoked meats, spice and dried-flower nuances. Complex, pure and perfumed, it’s full-bodied and seamless on the palate, with fabulous density, ultra-fine tannin ...

2010 Paul Jaboulet Aîné "La Chapelle" Hermitage 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2010 Hermitage La Chapelle is a big, inky, blockbuster styled effort that’s just now starting to enter its drink window. A huge perfume of black (and some blue) fruits, rendered bacon fat, iron, and graphite notes all lead to a powerful, full-bodied Hermitage that has incredibly purity and depth, awesome concentration, and building yet polished tannins. It’s an incredible wine that is still going to benefit from another 4-5 years of bottle age, and I suspect it will see its 50th birthday in fine form 97+" (03/2019) 96 points ...

2009 Auguste Clape Cornas (1.5L) 3-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasting the 2009 Cornas reminds me of a lyric from the great Who anthem, "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss." As close to perfect as a Cornas can be, this is the single greatest Cornas I have ever tasted. Its black/purple color is accompanied by notes of blueberry liqueur, blackberries, charcoal, incense, licorice and a subtle notion of smoke. This seamless, full-bodied, exquisitely pure, complex, savory blockbuster is the most remarkable Cornas I have ever tasted. It will hit full maturity in 5-7 years, an ...
