Preda shows a bold red ruby color. This great wine amazes for its intensity with plum jam and mulberry then developed menthol and iodate tones. The structure is huge in the mouth full-bodied and licorice and ripened fruit aromas.

Aged 24 months in oak barrels and 6 months in the bottle. The Cannubi is a great and elegant wine with delicate violet and plums, minerality and spicy characteristics. Suitable for a cuisine of strong taste, red meat dishes, game, truffle-based recipes, marbled and mature cheeses.
3. Chateau Haut Condissas Médoc AOC 2012 x 1 bottle
93 points Markus Del Monego | 93 points Andreas Larsson
Plenty of black raspberry, black currant and licorice notes intermixed with a hint of vanillin, but no vegetal qualities whatsoever. Fleshy, rich, medium to full-bodied and impressively endowed. The luxury cuvee from Jean Guyon that represents what he considers to be his finest wine is a beauty.

5. Monteleiva Gran Reserva Rioja DOCa Spain 2010 x 1 bottle
93 points Wine Enthusiast
Aged 30 months in French ＆ American oak barrels. In a reddish tone and brick flashes that show the long ageing through a bottle. It is a wine with great aromatic complexity due to its long ageing as required by the wines of this category in Rioja. On the nose, aromas of spices and such reduction leading to a slight hint of leather and smoked aromas. The wood also provides memories of cocoa, toasty and coffee hints. Leaves a nice, charming, powerful feeling with good acidity in the mouth. Well-balanced, soft sweet tannins, smooth entry and a long fresh aftertaste. Ideal for small snacks, all kinds of meats, stews, vegetables and cheese. It can please the discerning palate but also to the new, young Rioja wine lovers.
6. Vall Llach Idus Priorat Spain 2008 x 1 bottle
93 Points Decántal | 92 Points Robert Parker
It is an elegant and modern wine which surprises with the mineral tones provided by the Cariñena vines, balanced and structured by the inclusion of other varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon. The skilled use of these varieties confers on the wine a profound complexity of aroma and flavor which is both persistent and soft on the palate.
