aMaurice McCool Artist Series Columbia Valley 2013

$37.75 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($41.95 regular) 

95 points Wine Advocate: "The finest wine I've tasted from winemaker Anna Schafer... Absolutely gorgeous, with an ethereal bouquet of crème de cassis, spring flowers, tobacco leaf and hints of lead pencil, this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, beautiful purity, fine, polished tannin and a great finish. It's not a powerhouse, but it shines for its purity, length and sheer pedigree." 48% Cab, 32% Cab Franc, 20% Merlot. Highly, highly, highly recommended by Marcus and Andy. 

Gilbert Cellars Allobroges 2013

$22.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($24.95 regular) 

92 points Wine Spectator: "Broad and expressive, layering blackberry, dark plum, tar and floral flavors against lightly crunchy tannins. The finish glows. Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache. Best from 2018 through 2023." 55% Syrah, 31% Mourvedre, 14% Grenache. This blend delivers well past its price.  

K Vintners Cattle King Syrah 2013

$69.25 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($76.95 regular)

98 points Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Syrah Cattle King is a smokin', layered, sexy, voluptuous Syrah that does everything right... this beauty offers a sensational perfume of smoked meats, pepper, licorice, black olives and assorted ripe black fruits. Deep, layered and concentrated, yet always light on its feet and elegant, this fabulous Syrah has a terrific mid-palate, a core of sweet fruit and blockbuster length. It's a tour de force in the vintage and certainly one of the top wines." One of our highest rated Syrahs wines of the year returns! Very limited.
