Quinta do Noval Black Port  
Review Date: 11-3-2013
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Best value for Port from famous producer. Fantastic all around. Red fruit, chocolate, chinese plum nose and palate. Great mouth feel. Deep rich color that swirls nicely with never ending pleasing aromas. Long satisfying finish. Better the next night if you can imagine that. I like the bottle design too. Great gift for your friends as it has mass appeal. Must have for port lovers, poets and writers. Fresh, no hassle to serve, I would try it in cocktails, dessert recipes - I think it would be quite versatile. Not your grandpa's port for sure. Highly recommended.

The beautiful unknown. Nice red fruit and good acidity. Lively on the tongue. I shared a bottle with two friends after their haunted house extravaganza. The wine color matched the fake blood they were both covered in. Very enjoyable bourgogne.

1989 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-7-2013

I read Mr Sands' and Mr Beffa's reviews a lot and have found their opinions to be wine gospel. Especially on Bordeaux. I remembered reading that Mr Sands wrote once about an exceptional sauternes blind tasting and that all 12 of the tasters including himself pegged this the best and thought it would be d'Yquem. Well, having had this 1989 Doisy Vedrines I believe him. Simply perfect and I don't care that other vintages may have higher scores. This and the 1990 are far and away the best. The 2009 and 2010 may equal as time passes. A very high bar has been set. Best sauternes value as classics go.

Awesome. Deep full color. Classic nose with sense filling aromas that keeps on coming. Delicious. Perfect Napa Rutherford Cab Sauv from the Bartolucci vineyard. Strong buy recommendation. Tasted and bought at kl in SF. Plan to bring the bottle to enjoy at my favorite steakhouse, Bobo's and the Lounge.

Very delicious. Just right for end of summer. I brought a bottle last night to Bobo's Steak and Crab at a feast with friends. Great starter. Moved on to 2009 A et P de Villaine Mercurey and finished with 1997 Potensac. Perfect wines for the meal. Rave comments from my fellow diners. Thanks mucho Christie for picking my bubbles.

2010 Kalinda Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (out of stock)  
Review Date: 8-20-2013

I noticed that this seemed to be flying off the shelves a couple of weeks ago. Curious, I ordered a few bottles myself. I opened one and appreciated the beautiful deep color and classic nose then poured a glass and left it alone for a few hours before fully sampling. Geesh, this is and will be a keeper for those that seek out cult California cabs. Thanks to your team I have another secret weapon like the 2008 Kalinda St Helena Reserve for the blind tastings with my wine geek compadres.
Powerful with fine tannins. Such deep purple color. Pleasing dancing aromas. Slighty savory, peppery, olives, coffee, mocha with a wonderful evolving long finish. Lots of fruit now. Recommend decanting for a couple of hours. Tremendous value. Top notch example of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon without going over the top. What a deal.

Juicy. Quaffable. Very different from the 2010 Kalinda Napa Cab. It is everything Christie says. A good buy.

2008 Hyde & De Villaine 'HdV' " Belle Casine" Napa Valley Red Blend (out of stock)  
Review Date: 7-13-2013
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
A top Napa merlot and cabernet sauvignon blend made with strong French influence. Totally satisfying and memorable. I hosted a special dinner at Bobo's Steak and Crab on Memorial Day. I had met with the bar manager, Brian the week before for his menu recommendations. I went with all of his choices which was more than half their menu. On the dinner day I got there a couple of hours early with the wines which were J Lassalle NV to start, 2005 A et P de Villaine La Di Goine and finished with this wine the 2008 HdV Belle Cousine Red Table wine (Beautiful cousin -named in honor of the P in A et P. Aubert is married to Pamela who is Larry Hyde's cousin. Hyde and De Villaine are the HdV). Bobo's dry ages their steaks for 5 weeks - truly awesome and the wines perfectly matched and heightened the whole meal and experience. I went with Jen and Haley's (our server and the hostess) dessert recommendations and asked Jen to casually mention to my friend's young daughter and niece that if they know wine that they will meet a better class of boyfriend and that it is no crime to order more desserts!

Fantastic. Hits it out of the ballpark. As great as the 1989. Amazing it is drinking so very well now. Drink now and cellar.

Terrific aperitif. Great golden color, fragrant fruity, honey nose, medium body, 10 - 12 second finish, good mouth feel, apricot, pear, honey - satisfying and delicious. Had a bottle with wine friends at Gold Mirror Italian restaurant for aperitif. Paired perfect with the variety of foods we had. Beautiful label too.
Had a second bottle last weekend at a friend's birthday party. It was the birthday boy's Hungarian friend, Gabor that set me to looking for this wine. He and other Hungarians were there to drink and they gave their hearty approval. Always a good sign when the natives smile.

Opaque, deep purple-amethyst color swirls like beautiful colored glass. Wonderfully aromatic from the pull of the cork. Full flavors, black fruit, anise, cherry - it's complex with an attractive bit of heat. Long satisfying finish. Perfect syrah and worthy of her reputation.
