    Henry Of Pelham

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables


    "An opaque purple-black in the glass, this Reserve baco offers aromas of charred toast, rich dark berry fruit and gamy bits. It rolls over the palate in delicious waves of sweet-tinged, rich ripe flavours of cassis, black plum and ripe mulberry interlaced with savoury herbs and great pizzazz. It’s medium-full bodied with good mouthfeel and a long, balanced and delectable finish. The price-quality ratio skews well in your favour… pick up an armful."

    Quinta dos Roques

    Dão (Portugal), Portugal (Portugal)

    12 x 750ml

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "The 2016 Tinto is a blend of Touriga Nacional (50%), Jaen (20%), Alfrocheiro (15%), Tinta Roriz (10%) and Tinto Cão for the rest, all aged for ten months in used French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. The 2016 vintage was what Luis called a real Dão year, less full-bodied than the 2015s and with more acidity. Well, acidity is sure not too low here. This has gorgeous aromatics and intensely flavorful fruit, but what makes this pop on the palate is the acidity that lifts and frames the fruit. It's not a big or fleshy wine, but the structure is excellent and the flavors are irresistible. The silky texture is sensual. The tannins are relatively ripe, so you can drink this now, but it is just a little tight. I'm not entirely sure this has enough flesh to develop much—concentration is not the strong point here—but the acidity will surely preserve it. This will still be fine in a decade. This is another very fine value from Roques this issue, in a very graceful style. There were 50,000 bottles produced."

    Flat Rock Cellars

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Roasted Vegetables, White Meat


    Flat Rock Cellars' Gravity is designed to showcase the "best of the best" in the estate's Twenty Mile Bench vineyard and cellar. That means careful selection of the best parcels of Pinot Noir vines, vinified separately and then the best is chosen from individual barrels. The nose shows generous cran-cherry fruit with a subtle note of earthy goodness and oak spice. It's pure and delicious on the palate with bright red fruits, ripe tannins, vibrant acidity and good length through the finish.

     

    "Truly benchmark Niagara Pinot Noir! I've long been a fan of Flat Rock's Pinot Noirs, especially the Gravity. Aromas of ripe cherry. Vibrant racy acidity. The winery uses the gentlest methods to press the grapes and make the wine via a gravity flow system rather than pumping (thus the name gravity on the label). Then the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. Medium ruby hue with cherry accents, polished tannins, silky smooth texture and medium bodied weight. Gorgeous cherry-berry aromas and flavours on the mid-palate. Then it finishes with wisps of black raspberry and vanilla toast. This red wine is so vivacious and so fantastically great year after year. Pair with roast or grilled chicken."

    Red Meat


    A tannic and rich ripasso that reminds me of many Amarones. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Solid. Drink or hold.

    "Alexander Gottardi's first time using whole-bunch fermentation ahs paid off. Bewitching aromas and a balanced palate. Graceful, supple and long. On this showing, Italy's top Pinot Nero."

    "The 2016 Curtimenta is all Alvarinho aged for nine months in used French oak. It comes in at 13% alcohol. Sourced from 20+-year-old vines, this is made with fermentation on skins, resulting in more color and more tannins. The oak seems almost irrelevant here, as the structure of the wine and its concentration overwhelm and counter the wood. That's not to say there is no oak impact, but it is impeccably balanced. Then, as the winery suggests, it finishes with a bit of tannic pop. There is remarkable grip on the finish, good acidity and that tannic pop. The next day (when it seemed 50% better than on the first day tasted), this was tight, focused and intense, perhaps the best Curtimenta yet. It's very fresh, the fruit lifted and focused, despite the wood, and it is the acidity that seals the deal for this wine. It simply slices and dices the wood into splinters after it's open for a day. In 2015, its high-end sibling Parcela Única was the bigger star, if only by a bit. This year, it's pretty even, but the styles are radically different. This has greater purity and intensity, while its sibling has a lusher, richer feel. Curtimenta handles the wood far better (it usually does when young, and it receives less aggressive wood treatment), at least now. Whenever I thought the wood was becoming assertive, the acidity and fruit came right back up. The Parcela Única may be even deeper and more like a white Burgundy than a Vinho Verde. Choices, choices. Buy both! In time, the balance of both may change for the better as they pull in the wood even more. That's not as important with the Curtimenta, given less wood impact, but even the Curtimenta could benefit from a year in the cellar. Needless to say, they should age rather well (although Parcela Única edged into the lead on the third day after opening, making me doubt again which was better). It's a very different vision of Vinho Verde, showing what the region can do when its top producers perform at the top of their game."

    Bernabeleva

    Madrid (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Hard Cheese, Red Meat, Vegetables


    The 2017 Carril del Rey has a very pale color, the palest of the single vineyard reds, as the Garnacha here tends to have less color in warmer vintages when the ripening is faster and deeper colors in cooler years when ripening is slower and more complete. This is always a more Mediterranean expression of Garnacha, but this year the wine is unusually fine, elegant, aromatic and floral, with less alcohol than the 2018 I tasted next to it. It has an herbal and spicy twist, which makes it quite attractive. It's quite ethereal and showy, quite delicate. This seems to transcend the vintage. 2,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2019.

  9. New Chianti Classico Riserva Bugialla by Fattoria Poggerino 2016

    Fattoria Poggerino

    Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Hard Cheese, Pasta, Red Meat


    "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Bugialla is a total knock-out. Plush, dark and explosive, the 2016 possesses superb depth and textural richness. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, espresso, licorice, new leather and spice all flesh out in a heady, super-distinctive Riserva loaded with class and personality. The 2016 is fabulous in every way, but I especially admire its explosive energy."

    Spain (Spain)

    Hard Cheese, Red Meat


    "The 2016 4 Kilos is Callet from old vines and is from a fresher year that produced a very elegant and fine wine. They didn't change anything in the vinification or aging, because they changed in 2013, and the wine just follows that path. This has to be one of the finest vintages for Callet; the wine is super elegant, subtle and nuanced, with the Mediterranean character and no trace of oak. Callet is a delicate grape and needs a gentle aging, and so they use 600-liter barrels and 2,500-liter oval vats, which respects the floral quality of the grape. The palate is medium-bodied and has fine tannins with grip, moderate acidity and moderate alcohol, all in great harmony and balance. This is simply superb. 15,000 bottles were filled in April 2018."
