2007 Accordini Amarone

May 2nd, 2015 release $49.95 - WS 92points - Check LCBO Store availabilty in your area

This dense and concentrated Amarone offers an intense bouquet of marinated cherry, blackberry and tobacco. The palate delivers rich flavors of blackberry, prune, licorice and a touch of carob, along with round tannins and soft acidity. It has layers of flavor and nice depth. Drink through 2017. Score - 92. (Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, Nov. 2013)

2010 Buoncristiani OPC Red Blend

Current

April 11th, 2015 release $57.95 - WA 92 Points - Check LCBO Store availabilty in your area

The 2010 Proprietary Red O.P.C. (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Malbec, 20% Syrah and 8% Merlot) possesses a dense ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of vanillin, charcoal, lead pencil shavings, and lots of black currant jam. This fleshy, seductive, round, juicy 2010 is meant to be consumed in its first 5-7 years of life, although it may last even longer. It is realistically priced for a wine of this quality.” 92 POINTS Robert Parker

 

2012 Reininger Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley

September 13th, 2014 release $20.95 - Check LCBO Store availabilty in your area

John Szabo (Wine Align) 90PTS – From the Pepper Bridge and Seven Hills vineyards, this is a full, dense, savoury and spicy Washington cabernet with firm, hard tannins and plenty of extract – not a wine for fans of fruit, but much more distinctive, “terroir”-dominated profiles. I’d suspect this will be better after another 1-2 years and hold for close to decade, which is rare indeed for a $20 US wine. Best 2015-2022.

90 Points - The Wine Advocate - Robert Parker - "A sleeper selection, the 2006 O.P.C. is a delicious, full-throttle blend. Possessing copious aromas of flowers, blackberries, black currants, pepper, and camphor, refreshing acid buttressing substantial flavors, a velvety texture, and good length, this [is a] hedonistic as well as intellectually satisfying 2006."

An easy like Sunday morning wine that greets the nose with smokey blueberry, a stitch of leather, and a hint of orange Blossom. Warm red berries and plum blankets the palate and when given a rest, a little pepper nudges in.

2007 Reininger Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley

November 27, 2010 release $42.95 - Check availabilty in your area

Wine Enthusiast, 93 points
The Wine Advocate, 91 points

This well-structured, fantastic wine features notes of chocolate covered cherry, cinnamon, cedar, pencil shavings, and a dusty element of cocoa powder. Cinnamon, dark chocolate, mixed red berries, and espresso round out the palate with a healthy serving of very fine-grain tannins and balanced acidity. It is luxurious, round and sexy with a finish like a long dark hallway made of dark chocolate… haunting.

2007 Dunham Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon - Check availability in your area

November 10. 2012 release $53.95

95Pts - May 2012

Tasted at more than four years of age, this is a standout effort in a series that dates back to the mid-1990s. A complex nose greets you with a floral, dusty tickle, leading into a fruit-packed wine, with blueberry and black cherry most evident. Notes of black olive and graphite come through on the long finish, with exceptional grip and polish.

93 PTS - August 31, 2011

Black cherry, cinnamon, and gingerbread with a touch of molasses make this mouth-watering Cabernet Sauvignon a standout in this beautiful vintage.

92 PTS ~ '08 Lachini Family Estate Pinot Noir, Chehalem Mountains

WINE SPECTATOR INSIDER, Dec. 31, 2010

Lithe, supple and deceptively generous. At first, this seems reticent, then it blossoms with beautifully rendered red berry, floral, mineral and cocoa flavors on a remarkably fragile frame. Graceful and elegant. Drink now through 2018. 325 cases made. –HS

blueberry, cedar, bing cherry and vanilla flavours. Cassis lingers on a silky finish

2006 Reininger Ash Hollw Syrah

November 12, 2011 release $39.95 (Premium Star) - Check availabilty in your area

Wine Spectator, 93 points

An elegant Syrah showing haunting aromas of mixed olives, smoked meats, sausage, soil and soy sauce. On the palate its textures are classic Ash Hollow: round and smooth, with fine grained tannins. This wine is everything but fruit, and its rusticity is reminiscent of Cornas. Full-bodied and meaty, please decant now or cellar 3-5 years.

 

2010 Camino Del Inca Torrontes

Gold Medal, 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

This delectable wine is characterized by sumptuous buckets of sun-ripened blueberry, lavender and a wee-bit of orange zest on the nose. Once you sip, its flavors unfold, revealing blueberry, subtle smoke and juicy red pomegranate. The palate is round, smooth and ready, like a succulent filet mignon. Drink this baby now or delight in its glory after a rest in your cellar.
