2008 François Chidaine "Clos Habert " Montlouis Sur Loire (demi-sec) (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-26-2011
This wine is exactly like lying naked on a sheepskin rug in a southern garden full of night blooming jasmine, As angels spoon feed you key lime pie topped with vanilla bean whipped cream and sprinkled with nuts and truffle salt. Sweet, sour, salty-mineral, rich, focused, oily.....incredible. 95 pts

2009 Saint Cosme Côtes du Rhône  
Review Date: 11-5-2010
I really appreciate how this wine displays ample ripeness and concentration but is kept in check by fresh acidity and tannin. Ripe black fruit with spice, bitter green finish. sausage nose emerges with air time. Little too bitter but i happen to have high tolerance for that flavor, I like fernet and Campari after all. Remeniscent of a spicy ripe cab franc. 89

2008 Alamos Chardonnay Mendoza (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-14-2010
On the pallate this wine is reminiscent of Barbara Streisand's legs ie. It tastes like two sticks of buuutttah! While I love me some Babs I do not like this much oak in my chard. Oddly, I had this wine in Peru over the summer and I feel like it was much fresher tasting. perhaps they send the buttery barrels to the gringos as that's what they think we like. 78 pts.

2008 Domaine des Aubuisieres "Cuvee Silex" Vouvray (out of stock)  
Review Date: 9-26-2010
Holycrap this is good! Unctuous mouthfeel, concentrated stuff. Nose is lovely- yellow fruits and honey with subtle floral and damp wool. Slight drop of sweetness and salty on tail end. Could use a hair more acid but overall this chenin is dense,complex and delish . 92

Embajador Blanco Mezcal de Oaxaca 750ml (Cannot Ship This Product) (out of stock)

Has a cloyingly sweet quality that I really don't like. Probably ok as a mixer but not alone. 82.
