Sella Mosca 2011 Cannonau di Sardinia Sardinia, Italy 91 points ~ The Wine Advocate Jungle’s Price: $15.99 Big nose full of violets and fresh berries. On the palate: baked plum pie with earthy tones of herbs and sauteed mushroom. Finished with firm tannin and great oak presence.
Steele Stymie 2012 Syrah Lake County, California 93 points ~ The Wine Enthusiast Retail: $35.99
Jed Seele made this monster syrah in true Rhone style! Warm blueberry pie, thick bacon fat and clove. Very reminiscent of Châteauneuf du Pape. Tannin is bold and tight. Decant and enjoy now or lay down for a few years!
