The 2007 Valadorna has a beautiful espresso note and cherry cola nose, accented by tobacco leaf, rose petal and mocha. Asian spices and black tea flavors combine upon a driven core of minerality and freshness. The texture is a supple and elegant, an old world wine in the best sense. All components are in balance and come together to produce a stunning example of Merlot, reflecting the best of its complex Tuscan terroir. Blend: 64% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

"Produced from 85% Garnacha (70-year-old vines) and 15% Syrah (30-year-old vines) aged nine months in new and older American and French oak, it is another under-the-radar wine that dramatically over-delivers. A custom cuvee made for Eric Solomon, it exhibits notes of rose petals, raspberry jam, crushed rocks, spring flowers and kirsch. Stunningly rich and medium to full-bodied, with wonderful vibrancy, precision and minerality, this beauty could easily pass for a grand cru Burgundy – it’s that complex and interesting. I am blown away by what’s in the bottle, but you be the judge. When I was covering all the Spanish wines, this was one of my great value picks in the early days, and I am thrilled to see there are now 8,000 cases of this “baby Priorat” from nearby Montsant available in the American market."

Wine Spectator #27 Top 100 Wines of 201394 Points, Highly RecommendedVivid, complex and inviting, offering a lively mouthful of red berry, black cherry, mint and mocha flavors that linger effortlessly against polished tannins.

"A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot, the 2008 Il Fauno di Arcanum opens with an inky dark color and perfectly ripe aromas of plump cherry and blackberry. Beyond the enticing fruit aromas is a long list of spice and tobacco-related characteristics. This is a thickly layered and opulent Tuscan blend that is enhanced by territory-driven aromas of grilled herb and rosemary oil. The best part for me, however, is the soft richness this wine delivers in the mouth. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2027." Wine Advocate 94 Points
"The 2009 Caburnio (65-25-10 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouschet and Merlot) is a full and generous wine with layers of red cherry, light spice and leather that are delivered in quick succession. Sharp freshness cuts to the back of the palate and gives this wine an incredibly vibrant feel. The menthol reinforces those sensations and peppermint-like tones also present here. At this price, this is an unbelievable steal. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022." Wine Advocate 91 Points
