Review:

Opaque ruby. The Ripasso is youthful in appearance and taste with notes of red cherry, black pepper, and creamy milk chocolate. It’s big, full-fruited, exotically flavored and delicious with mouth coating density. A classic vintage. A blend of 60% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, and 20% Corvinoni.

The Accordini Winery

The Accordini Winery is settled in the heart of the classic Valpolicella, Pedemonte. The estate is approximately 25 hectares in Negrar. The Accordini Winery focuses on three varietals: Corvina,  Rossignola, Rondinella, Corvinoni, Garganega. The focus is the Ripassa style and Corvina grape, where Accordini dominates.

Guido Accordini, the family’s third generation winemaker, wanted to make the winery a leader in high quality wines production. Guido’s father  built a new cellar for this high quality production. Here the most famous “Amarone” was made.

 

"A tiny Amarone producer of impeccable quality; the Le Bessole bottling has traditional spice, earth notes, and deep fruit; the Riserva is tannic; most of the wines offer elegance and food-friendly acidity."

- Anthony Dias Blue's pocket guide to wine 2006

Siegel Single Vineyard Los Lingues Carmenere 2014

An intense violet color. Smells of black fruits that are complemented with notes of figs and spices. Soft, round tannins. Excellent concentration, juicy flavor and very voluminous.

This particular wine and vintage (2013) received the BEST CARMENERE IN CHILE award during the Cata d'Or Wine Competition.

After carefully determining the moment for the harvest, the grapes are harvested by hand and later de-stemmed and marinated in cold temperatures for 5-6 days. Alcoholic fermentation is between 26ºC and 29ºC during which daily reassembly is implemented according to taste. Post-fermentation infusion lasts for two or three weeks. Once the blend is made, the wine is gently clarified and stabilized in cool temperatures if necessary.

 


"A soft and easy red with dried fruit and rose petal aroma and flavors. Medium body. Good fruit. Drink now."

Amaren Rioja Crianza 2013

The wine is truly attractive, transmitting the finesse and elegance of the Tempranillo and the fresh, delicate fruitiness of the Garnacha. A balanced combination which is far from an excessive complexity, corpulence or over extraction to achieve the goal set by the bodega: to make a “RICH” wine in capital letters. With a nose in which the fruit character with floral nuances and strawberry toffees will stay with you all through its passage through the mouth, where you can sense its power, but with an elegance, enchanting you with its great balance until the long finish with heady notes of red fruit typical of the best garnachas from the Rioja Alavesa.

Only the perfect grapes are used to produce this wine. Amaren Crianza is the pursuit of perfection in all areas: the vineyard, the selection process, winemaking method and ageing.

Made from 85% tempranillo and 15% garnacha from vines with an average age of 35 years, the grapes are selected on a dual sorting table, first a manual check of the clusters and then individual berries. 
Both varieties are harvested, vinified and aged separately to extract their optimum potential and obtain aromatic complexity.
After vinification the wine is cask aged for 12 months in 50% new, American-oak barrels and 50% in French-oak barrels used for a second vintage.
Tempranillo brings to the wine typical finesse, elegance and true expression of the characteristics of the best soils of Rioja Alavesa. Garnacha is the ideal complement that brings notes of red fruits, freshness and delicacy.


Review:

"Deep ruby. Oak-spiced cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors are complemented by a suggestion of mocha that gains strength as the wine opens up. Plush and seamless in style and showing no rough edges. Rich yet lively; a peppery note adds a spicy kick on the back half. Gentle tannins shape the impressively persistent finish, which leaves a hint of bitter chocolate behind. - Josh Raynolds"

Vitanza Super Tuscan Quadrimendo 2013

Vitanza Quadrimendo is made from 50% Sangiovese Grosso, and 50% Merlot

This wine is flavorful and complex with a good backbone of acid and tannin.
Deep red ruby color. Intense aromas with characteristic peppery notes. Dry, tannic and powerful but with a smooth body.

Total aging time was 12 months in French oak, and 12 months bottle refinement.

 


"Plenty of spice, chili and berry character with hints of cedar and dried mushrooms. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. A blend of sangiovese and merlot. Drink now or hold."

Review:

A tiny production new cuvee (there are just 100 cases), the 2015 Lirac Secret de la Grange is similar to the Cuvee Reservee, yet has another level of polish, purity and finesse. Notes of blueberries, blackberries, crushed rocks, roasted meats, toasted spices and licorice all soar from this gorgeously concentrated, rich, yet seamless Lirac that has no hard edges, notable freshness and a great finish. It's straight up high class and should drink nicely for a decade. – Wine Advocate 91-94 Points

Cazaux Gigondas Tour Sarrasine 2014

Cazaux Gigondas Tour Sarrasine is made from 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre. 45 year old vines on average.

Intense, persistent red and dark fruit aromas. Raspberry,  pepper and spice flavors. Silky tannins.
Enjoy with game meat or strong cheeses.

Schwarz The Dust Kicker GSM 2012

Color: Opaque, deep red/purple.

Bouquet: Rich and comforting aromas of red and dark berry fruit. Red cherry, dark plum and blackberry with higher tones of cranberry. There are hints of Asian spice, gingerbread, dark soy sauce, licorice and chocolate along with notes of violets, dried orange peel and gentle, seasoned oak aromas further in the background.

Palate: Medium-bodied in the mouth with delicious crunchy redcurrant and red cherry characters along with deeper flavors of blackberry and black plum. Great clarity of flavor with hints of ginger-cake, five spice, red licorice, mocha and subdued oak. Plenty of drive and energy across the palate with a bright line of acidity, excellent balance and a finish that lingers nicely with silky, ripe, fine-grained tannins adding structure. Delicious drinking now and be confident cellaring the wine over the medium-term.

The 2012 vintage in the Barossa was a ripper. We had ideal weather conditions were experienced in the lead up to harvest, with slightly cooler spring and early summer temperatures. Across the Barossa we saw small bunches and low yields and the Shiraz we received had great color and flavor. We source the grapes for this particular blend from different locations across the Barossa, each individual parcel of fruit adds its own characters to the finished wine. Grenache for its perfume and spice, Shiraz for power and bassnotes and Mataro for its savory structure and texture, together they seem to seamlessly mesh together as a complete blend.

 


 

Reviews:

"Fresh and inviting, with orange peel-accented cherry and red berry flavors, lingering effortlessly against nubby tannins. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Drink now through 2020. 1,100 cases made. –HS"

Alain Jaume Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail 2015

Alain Jaume Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail  is made from 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah.
Deep red garnet color. Aromas of ripe and black fruits. On the palate the wine is rich, powerful and harmonious - well balanced with wild berry and pepper dominating.


Reviews:
 

Another winner is the 2015 Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail. Coming from higher elevation sites and mostly limestone soils, its vibrant purple color is followed by beautiful spice, black raspberry, kirsch and dried flower-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, balanced and polished, with plenty of fruit yet also solid underlying ripe tannic structure, buy a case and enjoy bottles over the coming 7-8 years.
