Daou Pessimist

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 79216

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2022
This widely available red blend satisfies in so many ways. Hearty aromas of thick, dark fruit, smoke and anise lead from the nose into a rich palate that’s loaded with cassis and violet. A persistent peel of acidity adds balance. (Matt Kettmann)
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Dec 2022
The 2021 Pessimist is a blend of 75% Petite Sirah, 10% Syrah, 11% Zinfandel, 2% Lagrein and 2% Malbec matured for 10 months in 60% new French oak. It has an opaque ruby-purple color and lush scents of cassis, blueberry jam, violet, lavender and hints of powdered sugar. The full-bodied palate is supple and fresh with gently candied fruits and a satisfying finish. This will be a crowd-pleaser. (Erin Larkin)

Poggerino Chianti Classico

2015 / 750 ml.

Item #: 88941

SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2018
Though shy in aroma, this offers a beam of pure cherry flavor. Earth, leather, mineral and tobacco accents add depth. Harmonious, if youthful, with fine energy on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2028. 4,000 cases made.
RP90+90+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
The 2015 Chianti Classico is plump and ripe. It carries a full bouquet of exuberant fruit aromas with Morello cherry, blackberry and red rose. The wine is compact and complete. It offers good intensity and a high pleasure threshold. It is also naturally informal in approach, and that’s what makes it so easy to pair with your favorite Italian foods. If you are nostalgic for classic Sangiovese, this is your wine. Some 48,000 bottles were produced.

Planetes de Nin

2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 91207

RP95+95+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2019
A 60/40 blend of Garnacha and Cariñena from the vineyard that names the wine, the 2016 Planetes de Nin saw a similar vinification and aging as the 2017 I tasted next to it, so the differences found were only due to the vintage and the moment of harvest. This is a fresher vintage, with tantalizing aromas that are subtle and elegant, with notes of violets and red cherries, nuanced and ever-changing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and nicely textured, with very fine tannins and fine chalky minerality. 9,108 bottles were filled in April 2017.
