Perfectionist Red Blend $69.99
72% Syrah, 23% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre
93pts Robert Parker-Comprised of Estate fruit, Perfectionist is a concrete co-fermentation of whole cluster Syrah and Grenache aged for 18 months in concrete tanks. The power, tannin, and ripe focus of this wine is a direct expression of the fruit, the vines, and a ripe 2014 growing season. Blackberry, vanilla bean, and ripe blueberries pull across a lengthy finish. The quest for perfection keeps us learning, growing, and evolving.
Rising Tides $66.99
95pts Robert Parker-The top wine in 2013 is the 2013 LC Red Rising Tides Proprietary Red. Made from 40% Syrah, 32% Grenache, 18% Mourvedre and a splash of Cinsault, it offers a gorgeously sweet nose of black fruits, bouquet garni, pepper and plenty of background meatiness. Full-bodied, layered, pure and simply seamless, with a hard to resist profile, enjoy this sexy Paso Robles blend anytime over the coming 7-8 years
93pts Vinous-Glass-staining violet color. Intense smoke-accented aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, potpourri and smoky minerals. Shows a deft blend of richness and vivacity, offering sweet cherry and blueberry flavors and a suggestion of star anise that builds with air. The floral nuance comes up strongly with air and carries through a very long, gently tannic, focused finish.
Slacker Wines - Computer Geek $39.99
"This unusual blend exudes roasted lamb, roasted peppers, resting juices, crispy fat, wood shavings, cassis and black cherries on the nose. The palate is so fresh and rounded, lush but with a real elegance about it. Mineral notes of quinine highlight the long finish framing a core of root beer, morello cherries and gingerbread. This wine is so far off the radar, but delicious and a must-try!"
Self Esteem 2016 $26.99
Hold your head up high as you drink this blend of 58% Grenache Blanc, 40% Picpoul Blanc and 2% Viognier. You will be transported aromatically to the sensation of walking in a citrus orchard during bloom. When the juice touches your lips, you will quiver with the fresh and lively acidity that exposes the flavors of Feioja, kumquat, and a deliciously icy, tropical pina colada. You'll ask yourself, How can one wine have so much going for it? All the while, the flint and salty minerality give you clues to the soils that our vines are grown in. It just keeps getting better.
