92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
The 2017 Renegade Red is a huge red wine blend that pushes 15% alc. You never taste it though, it’s well hidden within its rich, juicy texture accented by flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, cedar and cocoa. It finishes long with a hint of spice — a guaranteed crowd pleaser for sure. So much so Wine Enthusiast gave it 92 points – one of the highest ratings of the year for a wine of this type.
The 2019 Puech-Haut is a fabulous Rosé and one that Decanter Magazine calls, “one of the best and most attractively packaged in Languedoc.” It’s firm and elegant with flavors of white peach, strawberry and mango. It’s a crisp, vibrant Rosé that is the perfect summer wine enjoyed chilled by the pool but is also every bit up for the task of being paired with just about any kind of food you can cook up.
After a long wait, this lights out Rosé finally hit my cellar, from world-class producer, Richard Jaume. His old vines of Grenache and Syrah are precariously rooted in limestone at some of the highest elevations in the Rhône, perfect for making wildly aromatic, bone-dry Rosé that is simply lights out perfect with, appetizers, salads and any kind of pizza.
Mas La Chevalière is the project in the South of France conducted by the phenomenal Domaine LaRoche from Burgundy (their Chablis is excellent). This zesty 2019 Rosé is a seamless blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. It’s packed with bright red fruits led by raspberries and bing cherries and is extremely refreshing and light on its feet while managing to have a lot of body.

The 2017 Sage Canyon Road is absolutely delicious. The wine is bright, lively and packed with flavor perfectly balancing earthiness with a refreshing minerality. The Carignan provides elements of wild cherry, plum and black fig, while the Grenache and Mourvèdre add exotic aromas of herbs and spice.

Dollar for dollar, Xavier’s Côtes du Rhône is one of the best buys in the store and Xavier’s 2017 vintage in particular is a superb bottle of wine. It’s a got a killer nose, loaded with aromas of anise, black berries and white pepper. It’s deeply concentrated with a vibrant long finish, as good at any table as it is just by itself.

In 2016, the Ventoux offered superb climatic conditions especially in the higher altitude parcels, grapes were harvested in a perfect sanitary state. A small batch of extremely old Syrah were aged in barrel . The rest of the blend was aged in concrete to preserve the fruit purity. The wine has a deep dark ruby color with crimson reflects, the wine offers on the nose some hints of black fruits and provencal spices. Pair it with burgers, pizza, roasted lamb skewers or roasted chicken. It’s the perfect house red!
