Chateau Figeac 2009

"The wine-making methods allow the grapes to express elegance in the wine. Harmonious and elegant, Figeac reveals lovely balance even in its youth. Its long ageing potential is one of the greatest of all the top Bordeaux growths." -winemaker

Dominus 2014

"Dominus Estate wines are made with an objective of purity, balance and complexity. Minimal intervention and restraint throughout the process of grape berry selection, fermentation and aging preserve the character of the fruit. The resulting wines convey the very personality of the vineyard. Dominus winemaking includes separate lot-by-lot fermentation. Cluster sorting by hand is complemented by an optical berry sorting system. Gentle pumping-over extracts aromas, color and tannins. Vertical wine press at low pressure delicately releases components from the skin. Racking barrel to barrel in 100% french oak removes sediment and assures clarification of the wine during aging." —winemaker

Masseto 2013

"Masseto 2013 is the result of an overall late and fresh climate during the harvesting period. These are particularly favorable conditions for Merlot, which was able to ripen slowly and completely in sunny weather, without excessive heat, which enhanced a full expression of the aromatic qualities and perfect ripening of the polyphenolic content. Intense ruby in colour, the nose immediately reveals fully ripe fruitiness endowed with great freshness and complexity, underlined by delicate notes of vanilla and cocoa. On the palate, the wine is substantial and rich, with great density, and a rare tannic quality of silkiness and smoothness. Black fruit aromas are accompanied by a strong note of freshness and a long, elegant finish, which is prolonged with a delicate hint of cocoa." —winemaker

Montevetrano Colli di Salerno Red 2016

"Montevetrano is a Colli di Salerno IGT red wine made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Aglianico Taurasi. The grapes are grown and the wine now produced just a few miles outside Salerno, at Silvia Imparato's Montevetrano estate in San Cipriano Picentino. Produced from local grapes, Montevetrano is vinified and bottled on the estate ensuring full control throughout the productive cycle. Its colour is a deep, intense and concentrated ruby red. It has scents of woodland with hints of violet, blackberry and cherry. Spiced tones drawing on liquorice, myrtle, cinnamon or chocolate, mint and tobacco, depending on the year and the development in ripening; well balanced through a magnificent blend of tannins, acidity and wood, it has the promise of a young wine that ages well, transforming from such a sensual concentration into elegance." —winemaker

Penfolds Bin 170 Kalimna Vineyard Shiraz 2010

"Color: A black core with a barely visible purple rim.
Nose: Classic Kalimna, with trademark red fruits and a familial old-worldliness. Juniper and blackberry fruits, and raspberry stick and red liquorice flavourings. A carbon black 'sumpiness'/quince paste amalgam laced with a ferric/formic piquant lift. Possibly oak-induced, barrel-fermented eugenol/pink peppercorn/fresh green-tobacco aromatics.
Palate: Viscous, Velvety, Voluminous. (Editors note: the BOLD V is deliberate) A 'tannin tsunami'… riding a ripe and even wave across the palate. Oak totally absorbed, allowing blueberry fruits and a black-pudding textural imprint to stake ownership during this phase. An energetic tension impatiently awaiting to be… unleashed, tamed?! Commands attention, requests little, appreciates your patience." —winemaker

Penfolds Bin 620 Cabernet Shiraz 2008

"Deep and generous red with a dark core. This wine instantly proclaims Penfolds...and then, naturally Coonawarra! An aromatic color chart reveals red, rather than blue or black fruits. Also red licorice, black olive. Hovering above — wafts of tomato, quince, and cabernet paste meshed with cinnamon and nutmeg yeast-bun spices. Swirling and time in glass reveal fresh, bright beetroot and star-anise/soy Asian artefact. Exotic, with barely-discernible oak (French?) at least offering one recognizable sensory hook. Although flavors of cola, sarsaparilla and white chocolate are immediately apparent, it is the structure and textural weave that impact. At once, it is tight, focused, and poised. A multi-dimensional continuum, difficult to de-construct." —winemaker
