2021 Stolpman Vineyards Syrah Estate $28.99 (Wine Advocate 94 points)
The 2021 Syrah Estate is bright and approachable. Tarry touches give way to blackberry, blueberry, violet and bitter chocolate aromas. The palate is full-bodied and powerful with a youthfully dense core of fruit, finely grained tannins and bursts of acidity to refresh the floral finish. 2,500 cases were produced.
2022 Txomin Etxaniz Getariako Txakolina $19.99 (Wine Enthusiast 91 points)
In this wine, aromas of pink grapefruit, yuzu and sage leaf waft from the glass. A soft dried Mediterranean herb characteristic underlies flavors of mango, cantaloupe and ripe summer peach that culminate in a floral-strewn finish.
2021 Le Macchiole Bolgheri $33.99 (Wine Spectator 95 points)
Pure and expressive, this red features cherry, raspberry and blackberry flavors augmented by iron, spice and light herb accents. Sleek and elegant, with a succulent profile and excellent persistence on the finish. Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2025 through 2042.
2021 Produttori del Barbaresco Langhe Nebbiolo $24.99 (Wine Advocate 93 points)
The 2021 Langhe Nebbiolo opens to dark primary fruit with medium concentration and elegant tones of dried blackberry and pressed cherry. There is a soft earthy quality to the wine that recalls tea, dried tobacco leaf or peat moss. However, the slightly more concentrated quality of Nebbiolo offered by this wine is the main attraction. Cola or dried mint adds lift at the end. This is a release of 140,000 bottles.
