It is so exciting. We are getting better and better at capturing stunning potential of Markus Bokisch's hillside Verdelho vineyard in Borden Ranches section of Lodi. vineyard is supremely rocky and full of iron; cool wind flows down from nearby Sierras to keep vines cool as fruit ripens. Once again, we pressed fruit very carefully and minimized both skin and oxygen contact. We fermented in barrel, but have kept barrels topped during five months of maturation, and we have prevented complete malo-lactic fermentation. wine is very sharply etched, with persistent minerality and a severity that makes head snap back. It also has power that marks 2013 vintage. We had great success with wine in 2012, but that wine in end seemed somewhat rustic and brutish-- raw power. This year we have produced more of a diplomat, a Roman Senator.
Australian Wine Companion rating: 95. All fruit for this Chardonnay was hand harvested and delivered to winery for whole bunch pressing. wine was barrel fermented. Once primary fermentation was completed, malolactic fermentation then proceeded to 30% completion. After this, all batches were blended and finished wine was returned to barrel, with its fermentation lees, in end accruing 17 months in oak resulting in a full bodied, complex wine.
Winemaker Quincy Steele's experiences working in Argentina inform this wine and its style. Native yeast fermentation, extended macerations, and cooler fermentation temperatures give him as much control as possible with respect to extracting. Aged in French, Hungarian and American oak (equal parts, although only 15% new) allow depth of red and black berry fruit, spice, and pleasant earthy complexities to remain focused. At end of barrel aging small percentages of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, are blended into this Malbec to dial in its balance.
This wine is from France, Bordeaux region, Haut Medoc sub-region. Cinquiemes Crus Classes (Fifth Growths)94 PTS - James Suckling A wine with blueberry and mineral aromas follows through to a full body, with fine tannins and a juicy finish. Best for years from here. Needs at least three years of bottle age to soften. Could be better than 2009 in long run. (2/2013)94+ PTS - The Wine Advocate The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry and blueberry notes, it exhibits a sort of cool-climate character. Broad, rich and intense on the palate, the wine has plenty of tannins, but they are sweet and well-integrated. Everything is delicately entwined into this beautiful, medium to full-bodied, dense purple wine, which shows stunning character and a prodigious potential for development. This is definitely a major sleeper of the vintage and even better than I thought from barrel. With its 2010, this classified growth located in the southern end of the Medoc may well have made a modern-day version of their legendary 1949.(2/2013)92 PTS - Wine Enthusiast *Best Buy*A great success for this southern Medoc chateau, this is fine, elegant and perfumed. It bursts with a black fruit flavor, balanced by smooth tannins and acidity. Its a wine for medium-term aging over the next six years. (2/ 2013)91 PTS - Wine Spectator Offers a sappy feel, with deliciously pure notes of kirsch and blackberry preserves. Lightly toasted spice and singed anise accents lead to the long, graphite-fueled finish. Should age gracefully. Drink now through 2022. (3/ 2013) 90 PTS - International Wine Cellar Good full ruby-red. Musky aromas of black cherry, blueberry, espresso, menthol and licorice, lifted by a cool floral element. Densely packed and savory, displaying sappy energy to its intense dark berry flavors. With a serious structure and no easy sweetness today, this vibrant wine will need a good five to seven years in the cellar and should last well. This may eventually merit an even higher score. 90(+?) points. (8/ 2013) BackgroundChateau Cantemerle is located in the far south of the Medoc, almost on the outskirts of Bordeaux City. Cantemerle has 67 hectares of vineyards, planted with Merlot (40%), Cabernet Sauvignon (35%), Cabernet Franc (23%) and Petit Verdot (2%).

This wine is from Spain, Rioja region, Rioja Alavesa sub-region. VAZA is the result of a desire to emphasize the beautiful Tempranillo fruit of the Alavesa region in a vibrant and contemporary-styled Rioja wine. At our winery Solar Viejo, located in the village of Laguardia at the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria mountains, our winemaking team employs a modern philosophy of using a lighter touch of oak, allowing the unmasked fruit to be front and center with a nod to the traditional earthiness that is the hallmark of Rioja wine. The name VAZA originates from the Spanish word ”baza” meaning trump card, which speaks to the wine’s place in the Heredad Collection as a fusion of Spain’s winemaking vanguard and the region’s rich wine history.. In making this wine we aimed to create intense flavors and aromas. To achieve this end we used grapes from vineyards in several different parts of Rioja, and matured the resulting wines in a perfectly balanced combination of American and French oak. Vaza Crianza is a wine of great personality with fine fruit aromas and notes of vanilla and roasted coffee developed during its time in the barrel. It has intense flavors of black licorice and elegant tannins with a medium intensity aftertaste, making this a wine that delights the senses and calls for a second glass!. A perfect partner to cured meats, mature cheeses and roast or casserole meat dishes. TEMPRANILLO Wine Spanish Still Wine

Created by Master Distiller Lincoln Henderson, Angel's Envy is worth coveting. Aged up to 6 years in charred white oak barrels and finished in ruby port wine casks, Angel's Envy is an artisan's masterpiece unlike any other bourbon.Even after being named a “Living Legend' by Wine and Spirits Magazine, Lincoln wasn't content to rest on his laurels. He was always a malcontent. But then, you don't spend 40 years defining the spirits industry and earn an inaugural spot in the Bourbon Hall of Fame without a few unconventional ideas. Angel's Envy was his last, great endeavor.Angel's Envy is what happens when 200 years of tradition meet an independent master craftsman's instinct to improve. It's a total return to craft first, hand-blended batches of 8 to 12 barrels at a time. Our bourbon starts with the finest local ingredients distilled in micro-batches and aged in American oak. We personally taste every barrel throughout each step to ensure that the spirit meets Lincoln's malcontent legacy.This would be enough for any other premium bourbon, but Lincoln had other ideas for his creation. That's why we finish every batch in ruby port wine casks. There's no set time for the process. It's only Angel's Envy when we say it is. The ruby port wine finish adds subtle nuance without ruining the integrity of the bourbon. The end result is a rich, exceptionally smooth and rare bourbon. Sin aside, we work every day to inspire envy, even if it takes a little longer. Liquor Straight Whiskey
