  • Bedrock Wine Co. Evangelho Vineyard Heritage 2019

    £37.99

    “The 2019 Evangelho Heritage Wine is a total knock-out. The later than normal harvest yielded a wine with a bit more mid-palate juiciness than is typically the case. Dark red/purplish fruit, along with hints of cinnamon and new leather, develop with time in the glass. The Evangelho is a blend of the Zinfandel, Mataro and Carignan-based field blends, with the Mataro quite prominent today, and the Carignane less so. In a word: superb. Zinfandel, Mataro, Carignan, Palomino, Alicante, Mission. Drinking window: 2024-2039. 95 points

    Morgan Twain-Peterson MW and Chris Cottrell turned out a dazzling set of 2019s. The whites in particular are brilliant and show just how compelling the vintage is in Sonoma for white varieties. As for the 2019 reds, they don’t quite reach the stratospheric heights of the 2018s, but that is a pretty high bar to match. In the 2019 reds, readers will find aromatic, bright wines with terrific energy and just a bit less structure than in the most important years. More importantly, the Bedrock wines provide a fabulous opportunity to explore the nuances of many top Sonoma sites. Stated another way, the quality of vineyards is especially apparent in 2019, a year with a bit of rain in the spring that caused berries to size up. Lastly, readers won’t want to miss the Zinfandel Old Vine. Twain-Peterson and Cottrell were a bit wary of the wine market during a pandemic and were consequently especially stringent with the lots that were bottled as vineyard designates. Everything else went into the Zinfandel Old Vine, to its benefit, and yours.”

  • Williams Selyem Vista Verde Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

    £99.99

    “Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Vista Verde has a singular perfume of dried lavender, Earl Grey tea, musk and potpourri with a core of red and black cherries and berries plus nuances of dried herbs, charcuterie, loamy earth and a mineral hint. The palate is light to medium-bodied with concentrated flavor layers wrapped in a classy framing of new oak spice, with grainy tannins and good freshness on the long, perfumed finish. 822 cases produced. Drink: 2020-2030. 93 points”
