Top Picks from Vintages' March 6th Release 

Ca'Marcanda/Gaja "Promis" 2001 (Tuscany)
($45.95)
Angela Gaja's foray into Tuscany: a blend of Merlot and Syrah from Ca'Marcanda and Sangiovese from Pieve Santa Restituta. Deep ruby colour with a nose of cedar, vanilla and plums; medium-bodied, lovely mouth feel, fruity, spicy black cherry, great balance and a long finish. Hold for three years. *****

Gaja Barbaresco 2000 (Piemonte)
$225.85
Yes, it's expensive, but what a luxurious wine. Ruby colour, delicate nose of red berries, vanilla and cedar; medium to fullbodied, elegant and pure. You can taste the soil of Barbaresco along with rich raspberry-cherry fruit; well balanced and firmly structured. Hold for 5 years. *****

Quinta do Infantado Vintage Port 2000 (Douro Valley, Portugal)
$64.95
This single quinta port is not as sweet and massive as the blended ports of Graham, Dow and Taylor, but what breeding. Dense purple colour; blackberry and mulberry nose; full-bodied with dense blackberry fruit, licorice and chocolate notes, great balance. Forward. Will keep but tastes great now. *****
