95-97 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"The 2010 La Joie is a cool, mineral-drenched wine oozing with class and elegance. Today the 2010 is all about potential, and there is no shortage of that here. Blackberries, cassis, graphite and spices are some of the many notes that wrap around the powerful, insistent finish. This is another showstopper from Verite. In 2010 La Joie is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon 14% Merlot 5% Cabernet Franc 6% Petit Verdot." (Feb 2012)

"Vivid yellow with a greenish tinge. Inviting aromas of lime zest, pink grapefruit and pear. Firm and stony on the attack, with tangy citrus flavors vying with weightier orchard fruits on the middle palate. Nicely focused sauvignon blanc, with a stony persistence reminiscent of talc and white pepper." - Joel B. Payne (Sep/Oct 14)

92 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
(made from vines that were reportedly planted between 1935 and 1970; malo and aging in French oak for 20 months): Opaque ruby. "Heady, seductively perfumed aromas of dark berry liqueur, cherry-cola, Indian spices and candied violet, with a smoky mineral nuance adding vivacity. Sweet, penetrating and seamless on the palate, offering intense black raspberry and mocha flavors underscored by juicy acidity. At once rich and energetic, finishing with strong thrust, supple tannins and a whiplash of floral pastilles." - Josh Raynolds (Sep/Oct 14)

92+ Points - Vinous Media:
"Bealieu's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is going to need at least a few years to come together. Today the aromatics are incisive, as are the tannins, both hallmarks of a long, cool growing season. The 2011 stands out for its energy, tension and persistence. There is plenty of potential here, but readers will have to be patient. The 2011 finishes with persistent salinity, energy and tension." - Antonio Galloni (November 2013)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Almirez (a 1,000-case cuvée of 100% Tinta de Toro) was aged 14 months in French oak. This sensational wine comes from vines planted between 1949 and 1999. Yields were a conservative 1.8 tons of fruit per acre. An inky/purple color is followed by aromas of camphor, ground pepper, blackberries and cassis. This full-bodied, Northern Rhône Valley-like Spanish red exhibits meaty/lard notes, terrific density and purity, and a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds. It should drink nicely for a decade or more." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Nov 2014)(Special Interim Issue Report)

Michel Rolland MR Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 (Napa Valley, California)
Retail Price: $155.00
Artisan Wine Depot Price: $199.99

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2010 Vintage):
"There are only 250 cases and it comes from what appears to be the finest vintage of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon between 2007 and 2012. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with notes of charcoal, white chocolate and creme de cassis, a full-bodied opulence, impeccable purity, decent acidity and ripe tannin that nicely frames the wine. This serious, rich Cabernet Sauvignon is as exceptional as one would expect from this winemaking genius." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2013)

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Vivid yellow with a frothy mousse. Suave, expansive aromas of tangerine, Meyer lemon, white peach and minerals, plus a slow-building leesy quality. Very fresh and focused, offering tangy citrus and pit fruit flavors given lift and spine by zesty minerality. Melds depth with energy, finishing with very good grip and lingering minerality. Delicious now but balanced to age." - Josh Raynolds (Nov/Dec 09)

95 Points - James Suckling:
Aromas of currant, bark and orange peel. Nutmeg powder. Full body and chewy tannins. Savory, with balsamic and nuts. I love the juicy, decadent character to this. Drink or hold. - (October 20th, 2014)

94+ Points - Antonio Galloni of Vinous Media:
"Isole e Olena's 2011 Cepparello is remarkably silky, polished and refined, especially considering the challenges of the vintage. Dark red stone fruits, wild flowers, menthol and sweet spices all meld together gracefully in the glass. Voluptuous and racy but also an impeccably balanced wine with phenomenal length and a super-expressive finish. The 2011 will offer a wide window of drinking pleasure pretty much upon release." - Antonio Galloni (May 2014)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2011 Cepparello is a big wine that moves over the palate with authority and determination. It reveals thick layers of tobacco, spice, red cherry, grilled herb and pretty ashy-mineral accents. This 100% Sangiovese also imparts a sense of austerity that is especially evident in the tight, but polished tannins. Cepparello needs another five years of bottle aging." - Monica Larner (Oct 2014)

96-100 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Flirting with perfection, the 2012 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard and 2012 Petite Syrah Pesenti Vineyard both have off-the-charts richness as well as opaque black/blue colors, enormously concentrated red, blue and black fruits intermixed with camphor and creosote notes. The Pesenti also reveals a chalky minerality that no doubt is from the limestone soils of that region. They can be drunk for their impressive scale, richness, texture and power in their youth, but they will not exhibit much secondary development for at least a decade. They will still be offering provocative and prodigious drinking 30 to 40 years from now." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Dec 2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Bright yellow. Lemon custard, honey and toasty lees on the fragrant nose. Fleshy and appealingly sweet, showing good depth to its plump pit fruit and candied citrus flavors. Finishes with a subtle spicy note and a bit of warmth." - Josh Raynolds (Dec 13)
