La Pèira 2005

 99 Points – Gary Vaynerchuk

“The flagship wine from this new venture is easily going to be the next great global cult wine. Think Clos Erasmus or Masseto; that’s the level of quality that this wine brings! Dense, rich and explosive, with layer after layer of flavor and complexity. Ripe, but never over the top, this stunning effort should easily last 25 to 30 years. Expect ENORMOUS ratings for this wine. Syrah with a small amount of Grenache Noir. This wine just took my breathe away, though it is a little more over the top then most wines I score this high, to me this is the perfect example of a wine that knows how to handle it’s huge, massive fruit and balance it with some of the most obvious structure I have seen in a wine. The pencil shavings in the mid-palate stood out and the ripe strawberry fruit that dominates the back end is world class!”

Las Flors de La Pèira 2005

95 Points – Gary Vaynerchuk

wltv-las-flors“Insanely good value, even at this price. This is cut from the cloth of a Clio or a Numanthia; killer good wine in the bottle, huge potential for good scores and a reasonable price. Super ripe, complex and well balanced enough with earth, this fantastic wine needs to be tried. Do not miss out on this sensational new wine! 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache Noir, and 20% Mourvedre.”

Deusyls de La Pèira 2006

95 Points – Gary Vaynerchuk

 wltv-deusyls“This brilliant white has more in common with top notch white Hermitage than anything else. Viscous, oily, rich and dense (almost tannic like a red), with waxy fruit flavors and jam packed with fresh honey. This should age nicely for 10 to 15 years. 65% Viognier and 35% Roussanne.This is exactly why I feel white wines are unappreciated in the world today and this wine should be drank by anyone who thinks whites don’t match up to reds.”
