The 2014 La Ricolma (100% Merlot) is something of a minor miracle and a masterpiece in its own right. The wine is sumptuously textured and beautifully rich. It soothes the palate with its dark fruit intensity and sensual flavors of spice and toast that increase in intensity with each delicious sip. The bouquet peels off in thick layers, revealing Morello cherry, leather, black olive and moist chewing tobacco. Only 5,150 bottles were produced, and no matter what you've heard about the 2014 vintage, this wine is definitely worth your consideration. 96+ points. (ML)
A model of grace and understatement, the 2014 La Ricolma offers striking textural depth and resonance. Black cherry, plum, smoke, mocha, licorice and wild herbs infuse this super-refined, striking Ricolma. One of the more recent developments at San Giusto with La Ricolma has been a move toward pruning as late as possible, with the goal of encouraging late harvests. In 2014, that was a winning strategy. This fruit was brought in on October 2 and 3, long after the worst of the weather was over and with more than enough time on the vine to get the most of the Indian summer. Dense, powerful and creamy, with tons of presence, the 2014 Ricolma is a winner. Don't miss it. (AG)
