94 Points, James Suckling
Jet black to the rim, with dark, juicy fruits and a rich, sweet spice component from the Bonarda blended in. This is a bonafide winner– no surprise that Suckling agreed – giving it a 94 point score and arguing it is “so delicious to drink now but will improve with age.” If you were looking for your favorite new winter blend– may I suggest this bottle for you. You’ll thank me later, I’m sure of it.

The 2018 Red Blend is composed of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 22% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. The nose offers vibrant berry scents with accents of charcuterie, mint chocolate, cigar wrapper, violets and pencil shavings aromas, and the palate is powerful but featherweight, silky and fresh with a very long, layered finish. I love this balance of ripe fruit, mineral nuance, aromatic purity and structural power. This has the potential to grow into even more of a beauty with some time in bottle.

This offer is really an easy one. Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres (Baron Eric Rothschild from ‘Chateau Lafite Rothschild’ and Nicolas Catena from ‘Catena’) join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec, crafted nearly 4600 feet above sea level and offered for a fantastic price. This beauty that James Suckling called, “Pure Malbec” is a case buy all the way.
Austin Hope hasn’t just been Paso Robles’ hottest commodity, but arguably one of the country’s brightest rising stars with his Top 10 debut in last year’s Wine Enthusiast’s annual “Top 100 Wines of the Year” list. But as Paso prices start to catch up to their Napa Valley foes, Hope’s greatest trick with his ‘Quest’ bottling is how he manages to pack so much punch in a bottle that can be had today at a bargain.
From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, this is a high-tone northern Italian white bursting with white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits. Crisp and clean, finishing juicy and surprisingly long. A perfect complement to all kinds of seafood dishes, summer vegetables, poultry and light cheeses. There is no old-vine, small lot Pinot Grigio that exists for anywhere near the price of this one.

From the phenomenal 2018 vintage in Oregon, the Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir from Bergstrom may be the highlight of his entire impressive fleet. Pretty much a labor of love, top lots are selected from some of the elite vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley – each tasted several a half dozen times in barrel before the final cut is made. The result is a complex collage of elegance and structure that can really best be described as Burgundian.
Another wonderful effort from the superstar winemaker and new Nicholas Wines favorite, Bibi Graetz. His 2019 Cassamatta Rosato is another 100% Sangiovese ala many of his reds. It’s a refreshing, delicate Rosato that boats vibrant notes of cherries and wild strawberries with a honeysuckle finish. It’s well-balanced with great acidity. But the best part might be the price. As these were the last of Bibi’s cases of last vintage, Bibi gave us a special deal on the last 25 cases made of this wine.
The Carneros Reserve bottling cherry picks the family’s favorite lots to blend into a harmonious explosion – nearing a sensory overload. The nose is like sticking your face in a freshly baked peach/apple cobbler pie. Equally assertive flavors of melon, apples, and pears swim around the palate. Everything you expect from a classic Cakebread.

The 2018 Caprili Rosso di Montalcino is cut from limestone and rocky soil giving it an earthy complexity and sophistication. From there, it spent 12 months in neutral Slovenian oak where it was fermented using native yeasts ala old school Brunello. With tight, grippy tannins and a bright core of ripe cherry, this is a classic Montalcino Sangiovese, made in the style that is slowly disappearing.
Drawn from two choice spots in the Columbia Valley where Washington’s high desert land meets the Columbia River – the 2018 Cascade Heights is a juicy, inky purple, full-bodied Cabernet. Despite the bright tannins that argue for a successful drinking window of over 10+ years, this big, juicy cab is drinking excellent right now. The ‘X’ factor though is the price. At just $15/btl on bottle 1, this is unrivaled value territory.

This is arid, high altitude Cabernet (think Howell Mtn.) from vineyards at over 3,000 ft in elevations. It’s bright, bright Cabernet with zip and zest – due to its perfect acidity – which makes this an over-the-top food friendly wine. However, don’t let how easy it is to drink full you, there are so many interesting notes of leather, spice, tobacco, …. And as Mr. Tanzer points out it “This serious Cabernet finishes with excellent length.
