Borsao Garnacha 2011
"This medium to full-bodied wine possesses remarkable depth, an expansive texture and wonderful freshness as well as purity. On taste alone, this beauty could easily sell for $30-50 a bottle."
-Robert Parker 90pts
Lafage Cuvee Nicolas 2010
"...reveals serious glycerin along with a sexy, fruit-forward style with oodles of raspberry, black currant, cherry and kirsch liqueur characteristics...heady and succulent, this is a big, lusty red for true hedonists."
-Robert Parker 92pts.
