Le Petit Lion 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc from St. Julien, Bordeaux

93 Points Tim Atkin 

“This wine is light and fresh, full of crisp and ripe black currant fruits that lie alongside gentle and open tannins. The wine has weight and a rich underlay, although it will develop well and relatively quickly with its bright fruits and acidity.” Wine Enthusiast 90 Points

Marojallia 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot from Margaux, Bordeaux

ON SALE! Original Price: $53.99  

“This is a spicy, fruity wine that has excellent acidity and a rounded, fruity character. It has some extraction, giving a bitter edge, while the final effect is a rich, juicy Merlot.” Wine Enthusiast 92-94 Points

“Another brilliant example from Murielle Andraud and her partner Jean-Luc Thunevin, the intense 2012 Marojallia (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) displays an opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of charcoal, graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit. Some toasty oak is present, but the sweetness of the tannins, the multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and terrific length and intensity make this one of the great stars of 2012.” Robert Parker 93+ Points

“The 2012 Marojallia is powerful and explosive in the glass. A rush of dark red fruit hits the palate first, followed by white pepper, herbs, licorice and mint nuances that add shades of dimension. Marojallia is one of the most powerful, dark wines of Margaux. It is also one of the most distinctive. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2012 for at least a few years. The intensity and resonance here simply add to the wine's considerable appeal. The style is unabashedly ripe and flamboyant, but it all works.” Vinous 93 Points

“Refined texture, dry but not drying. Not especially generous in fruit but there's finesse here and subtlety and fine Cabernet fragrance, a little leafy and very fresh.” Jancis Robinson 17 Points

Moulin Saint-Georges 2012, 0.75L
Merlot / Cabernet Franc from St. Emilion, Bordeaux

"The 2012 Moulin Saint-Georges is plump, juicy and forward, all of which make it a terrific choice for drinking over the next handful of years. Violets, lavender, spices and blue-fleshed fruits abound. Supple and sensual, with silky tannins and terrific overall balance, the 2012 is showing very well today. Although not the last word in complexity, Moulin Saint-Georges is quite delicious." Vinous 90 Points

"Fine structure combines with bright fruits and well-wrought tannins that give density. Rich berry fruits shine through the texture, conveying a ripe character to this concentrated and ageworthy wine." Wine Enthusiast 90 Points

Mas Cal Demoura Terrasses du Larzac Combariolles 2012, 0.75L
Syrah / Mourvèdre / Carignan / Grenache from Terrasses du Larzac, Languedoc-Roussillon

"A step up from the l'Infidele (in price as well), the 2012 Terrasses du Larzac Les Combariolles is made from 40% Syrah, 40% Mourvèdre, 15% Carignan and small splash of Grenache. Brought up all in 500-600-liter demi-muids (25% new), it has a modern ting to its crème de cassis, blackberry, crushed flowers, spice and creamy vanilla aromatics. This is followed by a full-bodied, seamless 2012 that has superb mid-palate depth, fine tannin and a blockbuster finish. It’s superb on all accounts, and should have a decade or more of overall longevity." 93 Points Wine Advocate

Mas Cal Demoura Terrasses du Larzac Cuvée L'Infidèle 2012, 0.75L
Syrah / Mourvèdre / Grenache / Carignan / Cinsault from Terrasses du Larzac, Languedoc-Roussillon

"The entry level 2012 Terrasses du Larzac l’Infidele is a blend of 30% Syrah, 25% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache, 15% Carignan and the balanced Cinsault. Completely destemmed, vinified in stainless steel and concrete tanks, and aged 12 months in 15% new demi-muids, it’s a complete, balanced red that offers lots of currants and assorted dark fruits, smoked earth, licorice and subtle barrique characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, with terrific purity and length, it’s a classy effort that represent a good value." Wine Advocate 91 points.

Conti Cantine del Castello Boca 2012, 0.75L
from Boca, Piedmont

"The 2012 Boca Castello Conti is a real stunner. Rich, lush and radiant, but in the deceptively medium-bodied style that is so typical of northern Piedmont reds, Conti's 2012 dazzles. The flavors are bright, precise and lifted by the wine’s aromatics and acidity, and yet the 2012 also has an extra kick of mid-palate depth that makes the wine shockingly accessible and just plain delicious. Conti's 2012 Boca is a fabulous choice for readers seeking immediate gratification and restaurants that aren’t able to cellar wines for years. I can’t recommend it highly enough." 95+ Vinous

Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro 2012, 0.75L
Sangiovese from Chianti Classico, Tuscany

"You'll find intriguing, earthy aromas of scorched soil, underbrush, leather, ripe plum and a whiff of game on this structured red. Full-bodied, the palate reflects the nose, evoking dried black cherry, cranberry, licorice and a gamy note alongside fine-grained tannins." 91 Points Wine Enthusiast

"Glorious purity of fruit here with black currants, blueberries, dark chocolate, fresh herbs and forest floor. Hints of mint too, plus hazelnut and chocolate. Full body with seamless tannins and balance. Tight and compacted tannins with beautiful fruit and great length. Goes on for minutes. One of the best Opus' in years." 97 Points James Suckling

Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, California

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS, which is also from Clone 337 but from different blocks on the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, saw oak with 90% new Darnajou and 10% new Taransaud. This wine seems slightly more expansive, shares the black ruby/purple color with all of it siblings, and has a boatload of crème de cassis, incense, licorice, graphite and vanilla along with plenty of spice box and forest floor. This is a killer, full-bodied, super-duper, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20 years." 98 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon CCS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, California

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer to Kalon Vineyard CCS is Clone 4 from another block, and always seems to hit all the sweet spots on my palate. It’s aged 20 months in 100% new Darnajou barrels. The good news is there are 520 cases of it. Just a prodigious wine, this spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon is inky bluish/purple with a gorgeous nose of spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit, a touch of background toast and graphite. It has a very full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel and a skyscraper-like finish. It is fabulously open, sexy and a total thrill to smell and taste." 100 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.
