Montes Wines Purple Angel 2015 +62364 $62.95

Impressive deep purplish-red in colour. The nose presents its habitual elegance with outstanding ripe red and blackberries over a backdrop of sweet spices. Dark chocolate and mocha notes from aging in French oak combine very well with the variety’s characteristic fruity aromas, resulting in a wine with tremendous aromatic complexity that continues to open with layer after layer of new and delicious sensations. The palate is well structured with soft, ample tannins. Acidity from the Petit Verdot lends juiciness and central nerve, qualities that predict excellent evolution and exceptional aging potential. The remarkable finish is elegant and very much in accordance with the nose. This is clearly an ideal wine to enjoy now—or in years to come.

99 Pts – James Suckling, March 16, 2018

“This is perhaps the greatest Purple Angel ever. Full body, tight and compressed with an amazing texture and density. Fantastic fine tannins that are silky and polished. I love the energy and intensity. A blend of 92% carmenere and 8% petit verdot. One for the cellar but I can't wait to drink it again.”

Wakefield Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 +744235 $19.95

At release, the wine is a deep red with a vibrant purple hue. The wine has an aroma of rich blackcurrant, subtle spice, tomato leaf and a touch of eucalypt. French oak maturation is also evident with subtle aromas of cedar and dark chocolate. This is a wine of great intensity. It has distinctive blackcurrant and cassis fruit flavours. Subtle oak characters of cedar cigar box and spice are also evident. The tannins are fine and elegant – a hallmark of the varietal. The palate is well balanced, complex and fulfilling and lingers on the finish.

93 Pts & Gold Medal & Best Buy –, January 5, 2018

“Deep purple color. Fruity aromas and flavors of cassis pie, roasted pepper relish, pencil shavings, and chocolate with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an amusing, medium-long boysenberries, cedar bark, and dried eucalyptus finish with fine, dusty tannins and no oak. A rich, herbal cabernet for rich, spicy meals or a nice rest in the cellar.”

Rocca Delle Macie Sasyr Sangiovese & Syrah 2014 +68510 $15.95

Intense ruby red. Very intense and complex, with fruity aromas of cherry, blackberry and raspberry. Smooth with good structure, it has a pleasant freshness and a long persistent aromatic finish. Very versatile wine, it combines well with many different courses based on meats and cheeses.

91 pts - James Suckling, July 19, 2016

“A fresh and clean wine for the vintage with dark berry, orange peel and light walnut aromas and flavors. Medium body, fine tannins. Drink now.”

Stonehedge Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2005 +552174 $89.95

The Stonehedge 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet is a classic example of Cabernet’s character and structure. It has aromas of black cherries, dried flowers, and smoky oak, with a hint of chocolate. The aromas integrate with the flavors of rich cherries, vanilla and crème brulee. The wine has a well-balanced acidity and soft tannins to balance the strong fruit flavors.
