James Suckling (JS) : 97 Points (2012)
The nose has a complex array of fine-ground eastern spices, strong cardamom, fine dark chocolate and ripe black cherries and plums. There's even some licorice. It has a neatly composed and elegant feel on the palate. It really flows long, rippling with spicy flavors and a smooth, dense and creamy finish. Best from 2028 and for a decade or more.

Robert Parker (RP) : 96 Points (2012)
A wine that will be in bottle by the time you read this, the 2012 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis (it always incorporates 7% Viognier) will check in behind the sensational 2009 and 2010, but should be on par with the 2005 and 2003. Cassis, licorice, smoked meats, graphite and peppery spice all emerge from this beautifully concentrated, full-bodied, seamless Cote Rotie that has building, ripe tannin, terrific purity and a blockbuster finish. It will have 20-25 years of longevity.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 95 Points (2012)
Layers of mocha, sweet spice and leather integrate seamlessly into luscious black cherry and fig on the palate of this bold, deeply concentrated wine. It's sumptuous, with a kaleidoscope of smoky mineral complexities and a backbone that's peppery and fresh. The long finish is framed by sweet, silken tannins.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 95 Points (2012)
This is lavishly toasted, with a frame of mocha, ganache and black tea notes, matched to a gorgeous core of raspberry pâte de fruit, blackberry puree and plum sauce flavors. Exhibits a long, alluring, polished feel through the finish. This has a ways to go before opening up. Best from 2018 through 2030.

Mullineux Syrah 2017
Mullineux Syrah 2017
Our aim with our Syrah is to give true and complete expression to the Shale & Schist and Granite terroirs in which the vines grow. Approximately half the grapes are whole-bunch fermented and all fermentation is with indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for 11 months in French oak, 15% new. The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Hartford Court Four Hearts Chardonnay 2017
Hartford Court Four Hearts Chardonnay 2017
This highly textured wine displays aromas of yellow apple, honeysuckle and tangerine skin. Fresh flavors of Golden Delicious apple and Meyer lemon are intertwined with layers of spice and crystallized ginger. A rich and weighty mid-palate is followed by a very long exotic, mineral infused finish.
