"The 2016 La Ricolma is a worthy follow up to the epic 2015. I don’t think any estate in Tuscany has ever turned out two back to back wines that equal San Giusto's Ricolma in 2015 and 2016. Lavender, graphite, crushed rocks, sage, licorice and crème de cassis all build in a potent yet refined Merlot. A wine of mind-blowing purity, density and explosive power, the 2016 is flat out stunning in every way. Readers who can find the 2016 should not hesitate, as it is epic in every way."

6-PACK PRICE = $105.97 per bottle (add 6+ quantity to your basket)
CASE PRICE = $99.99 per bottle (add 12+ quantity to your basket)
Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2016 Howell Mountain Merlot is sourced primarily from a small section of our Candlestick Ridge Estate Vineyard along the northern boundary of the summit ridge of Howell Mountain. Volcanic, shallow soils and low yields lead to tiny berry size and intense flavors in the finished wines. For those of you who love the powerful, supple wines of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol, this is a Merlot for you. We blend 20% Cabernet Sauvignon into this wine from less tannic lots to help soften this wine.

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"This is a fantastic interpretation from Bolgheri. The 2016 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia is made with fruit from the same vineyard plots that go into the Bolgheri Superiore, only this is a second selection if you will. Generally speaking, fruit from the younger vines goes here. This wine gives us a very pretty glimpse of what we can expect of the high-end releases from this classic vintage. The fruit is rock solid, delineated, tonic and firm. The pleasure factor awarded here is very high thanks to the wine's inner softness, silky tannins and soothing extract. The bouquet is seamless and pristine." - Monica Larner (6th Sep 2018)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The brilliant 2012 Seventeen Forty Reserve is 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot. Exhibiting high class aromas of blackcurrants, coffee bean, crushed flowers and hints of chocolate, it flows onto the palate with full-bodied richness, building tannin and a terrific finish. In addition to all of its fruit and texture, this beauty stays lively, fresh and elegant, and shows the quality these Bordeaux blends can hit here in Paso Robles." - Jeb Dunnuck (Aug 2014)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Warm and velvety in feel, with a well-toasted frame that melds into the core of steeped currant, plum and blackberry flavors. A loamy tug through the finish keeps this grounded. Not shy on heft but pulls it off. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah. Best from 2020 through 2028. 17,300 cases made." — JM (web only 2019)

98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is a wine of extreme complexity and precision. It offers monumental depth with profound layers of black fruit, coffee, licorice and baking chocolate. I tasted this 2016 vintage beside the less-impactful 2015 vintage (which was reviewed last year). These two editions are very different when compared side to side, and this 2016 release is clearly superior in terms of the quality, clarity and intensity of its offerings. This Ornellaia delivers glossy shine and a polished texture that segues to important richness, concentration and textural fiber. It wraps thickly over the palate, imparting waves of sweet dark fruit and dark spice that linger for many long minutes. This beautiful wine is hitting the market now, but collectors will want to put it straight into their cellars for safekeeping." - Monica Larner (18th Apr 2019)
