    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. Organic. 50% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah. Organic. "I loved the 2016 Cairanne Maximilien and it offers terrific notes of plums, scorched earth, pepper and distinct minerality in a full-bodied, opulent, unctuous package. Made from 50% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre and 15% Syrah, drink this smoking good red over the coming 6-7 years." —91-94 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (October 2017)

  • Domaine Les Aphillanthes Gigondas Promesse 2016
    $32.00
    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. 90% Grenache, 6% Mourvedre, 4% Cinsault. Biodynamic. "The 2016 Gigondas Promesse checks in as a blend of 90% Grenache, 6% Mourvèdre and the balance Cinsault, brought up all in concrete. Notes of blue fruits, lavender, and forest floor all flow to a ripe, already complex, concentrated Gigondas that should drink nicely in its youth, yet evolve gracefully." — 90-92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (Oct. 2017)

  • Patrick & Christophe Bonnefond Vin de Pays Syrah 2016
    $21.00

    Red wine. Northern Rhône, France. Sustainable. 100% Syrah. Brilliant violet. Vibrant blackberry and boysenberry aromas, lifted by a spicy peppery element.

Fine-grained tannins shape the persistent finish, which leaves behind smoky mineral and cherry pit notes. This wine delivers outstanding value.

  • Chapelle St Theodoric Chateauneuf-Du-Pape 'La Guigasse' 2016
    $85.00
    Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. Organic. 100% Grenache. "As I predicted last year, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape La Guigasse has smoothed out considerably and seemingly absorbed the stemmy elements I noted previously. Still not yet bottled, it now offers wonderful fruit purity and intensity. Raspberries and cherries are delivered on a full-bodied, rich and creamy palate that somehow avoids any sense of heaviness. It looks to be a stunning example of 70-year-old Grenache from the sandy lieu-dit of the same name." — 95-97 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate #238 (Aug. 2018)
