E. Guigal Gigondas 2011 (Gigondas, Southern Rhone, France) - [AG 91] [RP 91]
E. Guigal Gigondas 2011 (Gigondas, Southern Rhone, France) - [AG 91] [RP 91]
Retail Price: $37.00

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Opaque ruby. Pungent, floral red and dark berry scents, along with a smoky mineral quality and a hint of olive; seems like there's more Syrah in here. Spicy blackberry and cherry-cola flavors put on weight with air, picking up an exotic touch of violet pastille. Maintains focus and energy through its long, smoky, gently tannic finish, with the floral quality emphatically echoing." -- Josh Raynolds (May 2015)


E. Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2009 (Southern Rhone, France) - [AG 92] [RP 90-92] [WS 90]
E. Guigal Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2009 (Southern Rhone, France) - [AG 92] [RP 90-92] [WS 90]
Retail Price: $50.00

92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Deep red. Potent cherry, redcurrant and floral scents are given a musky, earthy touch by a hint of rhubarb. Sappy, sweet and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry preserve flavors and a touch of licorice. The clinging finish is shaped by silky, even tannins and given bite by a hint of cracked pepper." -- Josh Raynolds (Apr 2015)

96 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Impeccable elegance characterizes this vintage of the producer’s marquee Bordeaux-style blend, an expert finessing of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Juicy in exotic black fruit, it stands tall, with silky, towering shoulders of herb, cardamom and clove that will coalesce beautifully over time. Hold through 2026." - Virginie Boone (5/1/2015)

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Very dark colored, almost black. Full body, with super fine and refined tannins with dark chocolate and dark cherry and anise. Black olives at the finish. Tight and closed with a hint of toasted oak. I would give this three to five years of bottle age." - (June 11th, 2014)

93 Points - Stephan Tanzer:
"Saturated dark, bright ruby. Highly perfumed scents of blackberry, violet and minerals convey a powerful impression of lift. Delivers a rare combination of thickness and lightness, with the wine's underlying minerality giving its black fruit flavors a penetrating quality. A real wave of fruit on the palate, finishing with extremely refined tannins and a note of oaky torrefaction. Another outstanding wine from the 2010 vintage."

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Revealing the great blending skills of Beringer’s winemaking team, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a winner. Having purchased Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well. The 1991, one of the great successes of that vintage, is still aging beautifully at nearly 25 years of age. The sensational 2012 (10,000 cases) boasts an opaque purple color along with abundant aromas of charcoal, burning embers, crme de cassis, chocolate, blackberries and licorice. The long, complex, compelling, full-bodied texture along with terrific purity and a savory, rich mouthfeel result in a classic, quintessential Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next 20-25 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2014)

91-93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Inky purple. Highly complex scents of red and dark berry preserves and fresh flowers, along with a zesty, spicy topnote. Shows very good energy and lift to its juicy black raspberry and violet pastille flavors, picking up a smoky nuance with air. Closes spicy, sweet and very long, with supple tannins sneaking in late." -- Josh Raynolds (Feb 2015)

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This is marked by hard tannins and acidity, bearing blackberry, dark chocolate and mineral flavors, with a smoky oak note that is unintegrated with the other components. Will it age? There’s a purity to the core that strongly suggests it will. Hold it until 2017, and it could develop bottle nuance well beyond that." - S.H. (9/1/2012)

91-94 Points - Allen Meadow's Burghound:
"There is a hint of mandarin orange to the otherwise more classic aromas of white peach, green apple and wet stone. The well-detailed and intensely stony medium weight plus flavors possess an excellent sense of underlying tension on the saline-infused, dry and well-balanced finish. I like the mid-palate concentration and while this is already delicious, this is sufficiently serious as to require 8 to 10 years of cellar time." (Jun 11, 2013)

(93-95) Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2012 Merlot is another knock out. Dark red cherry, plum, mocha, spices and new leather flesh out in a seamless Merlot with soft contours and exceptional overall balance. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this utterly impeccable, polished Merlot from Pahlmeyer. All the elements are in the right place. Most importantly, the 2012 is flat-out delicious. I tasted the 2012 from a preliminary blend, and it was impressive." -Antonio Galloni (November 2013)

About the wine:
Layered, concentrated fruit with spicy, licorice and cedar notes that linger and metamorphose into goudron and rose petals.
