Hyde de Villaine (HdV)
Syrah, Californio – 2014

Vinous
92 Pointa

The 2014 Syrah Californio Hyde Vineyard offers good varietal character in a mid-weight, perfumed style. For a wine made in a drought vintage, the 2014 remains surprisingly light on its feet and aromatic. There is good brightness to the sweet red cherry and plum fruit, along with enough freshness to drink well for at least another handful of years.

A very solid red offering dried-strawberry, violet and cedar aromas and flavors with hints of oak. Full-bodied, firm and chewy with fantastic length and complexity. Great potential.

Wet-earth, oyster-shell and dark-berry aromas follow through to a full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs a year or two to soften. Try after 2022.

Purity of cherries and watermelon comes through here with some fresh, floral character to the aromas. Medium to full body. Round and fruit-laden tannins follow through to a flavorful finish with lovely fruit. Better after 2021.

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Poggio al Granchio – 2015

Vinous
94 Points

Full, deep red. Aromas of blueberry, red cherry cola, violet, coffee and smoke, complicated by balsamic undertones. An absolutely beautiful wine that is already sweet, pliant and accessible, but with a solid, polished spine nicely framing the musky red fruit, mocha, and licorice flavors and ensuring a long life ahead. Clearly deeper than the regular and Vigna al Lago 2015 Brunellos, this finishes long and suave. Made with grapes picked in a vineyard in the southeastern sector of Montalcino. This 2015 is excellent.

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Vigna Spuntali – 2015

Vinous
95 Points

Good medium red. Fresh, almost tight aromas of red cherry, sweet spices and peppermint oil, complicated by blood orange and marzipan nuances. Rich and round, with minty acidity leaving a penetrating quality and an impression of greater verticality than some other recent vintages of this wine. Clearly refined, nicely sweet and pure on the long, multifaceted finish. One reason behind this wine’s success in 2015 is that while the Spuntali area is usually fairly dry, it actually rained in 2015 (somewhat paradoxically, given the 2015 growing season weather characteristics - warm and dry - I thought

Wine Spectator

Earth, leather, almond, macerated cherry and sanguine flavors mark this taut, dry style. The tannins have energy, but border on being astringent, leaving a dusty feel on the savory aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2042. 830 cases made, 200 cases imported.

Ripe, featuring sweet plum, cherry, balsamic and iron notes, this is powerful and expressive. Dense tannins underlie the fruit on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2040. 750 cases made, 150 cases imported.

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Poggio al Granchio – 2015

Decanter
93 Points

Poggio al Granchio is located in the southeastern sector of Montalcino. It reaches 450 metres above sea level and sees significant diurnal temperature differences. The resulting grapes are small and concentrated. The wine is given a short passage in barriques to fix the colour, then aged in large 60-litre oak vats. It takes time to open up and reveal notes of struck stone, dried lavender and currants. The relatively weighty palate is finely etched with dark fruit and a flinty edge. The substantial tannins are long and powdery, giving plenty of support.

Decanter
94 Points

Situated in the southwest, the sun-bathed Vigna Spuntali looks towards the sea which provides cooling breezes in the hot summer months. Vines grow on sandy soil surrounded by low-lying Mediterranean shrub. The resulting wine is plump yet not heavy, with glossy, sweet fruit lightly coated in fine, dusty tannins. Forthcoming scents of dried thyme and orange peel are countered by a saline tang. Ageing is in small French oak barrels.

This opens with aromas of mature dark-skinned fruit, espresso and toasted oak. The dense palate offers sour cherry, ground clove and roasted coffee bean alongside close-grained tannins. Drink 2023–2028.

Biondi-Santi
Rosso di Montalcino DOC – 2016

The Wine Advocate
95 Points

I am immediately smitten by the Biondi-Santi 2016 Rosso di Montalcino thanks to the purity of the aromas on display. The bouquet literally submerges the senses in Sangiovese, with those delicate aromas of wild rose, violets, wet earth and brambly forest berry. Background notes of licorice, camphor ash and balsam herb come into steady focus. I am delighted by the intensity and the immense focus of this wine. This Rosso di Montalcino stands with the best of Brunello...

Biondi-Santi
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Riserva – 2012

The Wine Advocate
97 Points

You will notice the dedication printed below the label of the wine label. It reads: "Dedicato a Franco Biondi Santi." Indeed, the Biondi-Santi 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is the last vintage made by the towering father figure of Brunello whom most everyone referred to as the "gentleman of Montalcino." Il Dottore, as he was also respectfully addressed, died at age 91 in April 2013, and he was very active in the winery as this magnificent wine took shape. This Riserva is a true work of beauty...

Châteauneuf-du-Pape – 2017

The Wine Advocate
93 Points

A second consecutive winner from this fine estate, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape is 66% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 6% Cinsault and 3% of the other permitted varieties. Grilled red plums lead off, fleshed out by other ripe stone fruits. Full-bodied and plush, it's creamy in texture through the mid-palate, then long and silky on the finish, where it picks up hints of Asian five spice powder.

Tasted blind. Banana, apple, lemon juice adding a vein of freshness on the finish. Slight salinity gives moderate complexity on the length.
