93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "As intense as it is so very varietally precise, this is an exceptional Syrah of considerable scope and authority whose deeply fruited, distinctly peppery aromas quickly draw one in and, if anything, are surpassed in richness and range by the wine’s even deeper, altogether complete flavors. Unabashedly ripe and very full-bodied without intimating heaviness and still on the youthfully sinewy side on the palate, this is one that in no uncertain terms begs for cellar time, and it is guaranteed to reward six to ten years of age ...

1995 L'Encantada 24 Year Old "Lous Pibous #146" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $250) (Elsewhere $250)
Top Pick!
The phenomenon that is Lous Pibous is unmatched in modern booze culture. Their rise to prominence in the eyes of the cognoscenti was so precipitous, it could never have been predicted. Truly, a modern legend. It was an overnight success. This tiny estate been anointed as one of the great Gascogne estates. The inherently limited nature of the stocks has created a stir. The golden age of brandy is here and Pibous might be its peak. It might have been lost completely had it not been for the great work of our partners at L'Encantada. We were very lucky to im...

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "This stellar, powerhouse wine is perfumed in aromas of pencil, leather and sage that season a core of mineral and crushed rock. The fruit is equally savory in currant and plum, with a dusting of dark chocolate. Enjoy now–2029. *Editors' Choice* (VB)" (11/2019) 92-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the barrel samples, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty, elegant wine that lacks the richness of the 2015 yet has perfumed notes of red and black currants, spring flowers, and spice. A blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Peti...

1988 L'Encantada 30 Year Old "Domaine Le Frêche #17" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Elsewhere $200) (Elsewhere $200)
Top Pick!
The wonderful and mysterious "Domaine Le Frêche" is becoming, much like Encantada's other famous estate Lous Pibous, quite well regarded. Also like Lous Pibous, Le Frêche is not the name of the domaine itself, but a place holder used by the bottlers. Because of this secrecy there's much speculation regarding the source of the spirit. Unfortunately for those seeking truth there are easily 10+ excellent producers in the little village, so take a guess. The most famous is the incredible Boingniere, whose Armagnacs are extremely sought-after and expensive. I...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Oregon Pinot Noir gives a good intensity of warm red berry/red cherry cordial notes with a bit of baking spices and floral notes in the background.

From a vintage that Jeb Dunnuck has hailed as "an incredibly beautiful, classic year for Napa Valley," Sullivan's 2016 Rutherford Estate Chardonnay displays all the hallmarks of top-flight Napa Chard - stunning purity and opulence of fruit married to radiant balance.

On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, supple and satiny, with a juicy core of succulent, mouthwatering fruit that's framed by melting tannins.

It offers a richer, powerful style as well as Napa Cabernet-like notes of black and blue fruits, scorched earth, crushed rocks, and violets.

Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungent fruit as well as a real spicy and wild quality.
