New Arrivals
2009 BODEGAS MUGA Rioja Selección Especial Reserva $39.99 (Wine Spectator 95 points)
Powerful yet harmonious, this rich red delivers black cherry, licorice, fresh herb, smoke and mineral flavors that mingle seamlessly over firm, well-integrated tannins, while balsamic-tinged acidity drives the flavors through the long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2025. 4,000 cases made.
 
2009 ALDO CONTERNO Langhe $24.99 (Wine Spectator 90 points)
Round and silky, with a kick of both acidity and tannins keeping the cherry, raspberry and earth flavors focused and pure. Balanced and long. Freisa, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2015. 1,600 cases imported.
 
2011 Carlisle Zinfandel Papera Ranch $39.99 (Wine Advocate 91-93 points)
Carlisle’s 2011 Zinfandel Papera Ranch is all about red fruit, lifted aromatics and silky tannins. A highly representative, varietally expressive Zinfandel, the 2011 is utterly convincing. An exotic melange of dried roses, mint, wild flowers and sage rings out on the silky, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
 
2010 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel $47.99 (Wine Advocate 94 points)
Opening up considerably since I tasted it from barrel, the 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel is a superb blend of 45% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 21% Syrah and 4% Counoise that was aged all in foudre. It delivers loads of ripe blackberry, plum, licorice, roasted herbs and hints of flowers to go with a medium to full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling profile on the palate. Textured, layered and rich, with a firm underlying core of tannin, this superbly balanced beauty should be given 2-3 years of bottle age and then consumed over the following decade. Drink 2015-2025.
