Barton Jones The Box Seat semillon 2015 ($24)

This is a mighty good semillon that shows the benefits and flexibility of this variety. In this case, 18 months in French oak has brought a high degree of sophistication and complexity into the wine, yet it retains its essential fruit character with that lemon zip tracing through the long palate. Has some cellaring potential as well.
SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 7 Years

Barton Jones The Top Drawer cabernet sauvignon 2015 ($29)

The fruit for this excellent cabernet comes from vines that are now nearly 40 years old. Dark chocolate and spicy blackcurrant fruit flavours with some nice cedary oak. It’s generous and ample in the middle palate with a fine weave of tannin and oak.
SCORE 90/100 CELLAR 10 years
