2012 Montes Syrah Folly La Finca de Apalta (Chile, Rapel Valley, Colchagua Valley) (21 bottles)
97 Points – James Suckling:
“Incredible wine with blackberry, dried meat, granite, spice, and blueberry character. Full body, super velvety texture, yet incredibly fine and long. Such finesse and balance. Clearly the benchmark for syrah in South America. So gorgeous to drink now but will age beautifully.” – (May 12th, 2016)

93 Points – Wine Spectator Magazine:
“Deeply flavored, rich and intense, with concentrated flavors of dark plum, raspberry, blackberry and chocolate mousse. Well-structured, featuring a long finish that oozes Asian spice and notes of hot stone and white pepper. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases imported.” – KM (Feb 29, 2016)

WINE 4:

2011 Montes Syrah Folly La Finca de Apalta (Chile, Rapel Valley, Colchagua Valley) 13 bottles
97 Points & Rank #4 Top 100 Wine of 2015 – James Suckling:
“Fabulous aromas of dark berries and granite. Flowers and sliced raw meat too. Full-bodied and velvety with incredible length. Clearly the best syrah of Chile. Very exciting. A great year for syrah with a long hang time. Aged for 18 months in new French oak that is imperceptible. Drink now.” – (July 6th, 2015)

94 Points – Wine Spectator Magazine:
“A ripe, rich and elegant red, offering refined yet powerful flavors of blackberry, dark plum, dark cherry and boysenberry. Very creamy midpalate, showing some notes of black licorice and pepper. The long finish is intensely spicy, with some savory accents. Syrah. Drink now through 2019. 600 cases made.” – KM (May 31, 2014)

93 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“The 2011 Folly Syrah is pure Syrah from the upper slopes of the Montes vineyard in the Apalta Valley. It has a serious, somehow closed, backward nose, and it takes time to show the aromas of ripe plums, olives and raspberries as they are also covered by the notes of the wood, but the palate seems to have the stuffing to balance the wood tannins and improve in bottle. It’s quite full-bodied, with good freshness and focused varietal flavors. Give it some more time; this is a very good Syrah that requires some patience. Drink 2015-2020.” – Luis Gutierrez (Jun 2014)

WINE 7: 2012 Francis Ford Coppola Director’s Cut Cinema – USA, California, Sonoma County 
3 Day Wine Review Day 1: Pleasant nose raspberries, dust and spices. On the palate nice overall with spices, red currants, floral notes and black pepper. This is a blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45 Zinfandel, 4% Petite Sirah and 2% Syrah. Drinkiing well on the pop and pour and we shall see where this is on day 2. 87 points
Day 2: A bit more mellow on day 2 with spices, red currants, dust and a touch of chocolate. Medium finish and smooth drinker. This is at a solid spot right now and I would consumer these over the next few years. 88 points (88 points)

Wine 8: 2015 Bodegas Breca Garnacha Breca – Spain, Aragón, Calatayud (Great QPR!)3 Day Wine Review
Day 1: Grabbed a bottle out of the closeout bins at Sid’s. Nice nose of earth, raspberries and dust. On the palate a touch of sweetness along with spice, crushed rock, dust and a floral note. The finish is a little harsh and is the only thing detracting from the experience. This represents a good value for the quality. If you just drink this and don’t think too much it is even better than 86. 86 points
Day 2: Better and for the price point means new everyday wine selection. Spices, floral, raspberries, flint and crushed rock. While a touch of sweet fruits on this wine it is balanced and extremely enjoyable. For $12.99 a bottle more please! 88 points
