"Vivid aromas of rose petals, currants and blue fruits follow through to a
medium body, firm and silky tannins and a clean finish. Nice linear
backbone. Drink now or hold."

acidity. Flowers blend with tones of green apple and spices on the nose and
the palate shows melon and pear-driven fruit notes in a full-bodied style.”

"Here's a great value, Monaci's Piluna Primitivo shows a solid, modern
approach with a few rustic touches, the wine is ripe, soft and slightly
sweet in character with harmony, ripe tannins and juicy acidity. Well
balanced, delicious and inexpensive make for a winning combo. A dazzling
wine for the price!"

"Rich and supple, this is an explosion of pure, decadent fruit. Floral
huckleberry and Chinese five-spice powder aromas open to layered blackberry,
dark chocolate and licorice flavors that linger. Drink now through 2026."

"His 2015 Pinot Noir Chimera comes primarily from Russian River vineyards
but a tiny percentage is from the Sonoma Coast and even a drop or two from
the Santa Lucia Highlands. This wine has a deep ruby color and a big, sweet
kiss of raspberry, black cherry, incense and floral notes. It is
medium-bodied, lush, long and again, sexy and heady. It is one of his
biggest cuvées (925 cases). It should be drunk over the next 4-6 years."

stunningly delicious, complex, big-time, sexy style of wine....."
"The 2013 Proprietary Red from Bootleg is a major sleeper of not only the
vintage, but in its entire concept. There are just over 8,000 cases of this
wine, which has been culled from KJ vineyards on Atlas Peak, Oakville, Mt.
Veeder, Rutherford and Spring Mountain. The wine is a blend of 27% Cabernet
Sauvignon, 22% Petite Sirah, 21% Zinfandel, 12% Merlot, and the rest Malbec
and Petit Verdot. That’s like throwing in the entire kitchen sink, but the
result is a stunningly delicious, complex, big-time, sexy style of wine with
a deep, opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of blackberries and
blueberries, with some lavender Provençal herbs, licorice and a touch of
espresso. The wine has a fabulous texture, a plush, full-bodied mouthfeel,
and beautiful purity and depth. It’s something that could only be made in
California, given the blend, but it is off-the-charts in terms of its
hedonistic appeal. At the same time, it is complex enough to satisfy the
intellectual senses as well. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. A big-time
