2015 Penfolds "Bin 389" Cabernet-Shiraz South Australia (Elsewhere $63)

97 points James Halliday: "Matured for 12 months in American hogsheads (32% new). Unapologetically made with the don't fix if it isn't broken aphorism. It is tightly structured, with faultless attention to detail - wheels within wheels stuff, but inexorable in sending its black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant) flavour message. Despite its full body, and its far-reaching longevity, it's tailor-made for the saltbush lamb shoulder of tonight's dinner. *Special Value Selection*" 96 points James Suckling: "Cabernet just has the upper hand in the blend at 53%; this continues as a rising star in the Penfolds family ...Read More »

Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with generous black fruit and menthol flavors. Structured with a firm backbone, it finishes with great length.

2014 Clos du Val Carneros Chardonnay (Previously $25)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay, which displays slightly fresher acids, is basically an unoaked presentation even if there is wood being used. The wine offers pleasant citrus, medium body, and a good, clean, fresh style. (RP)" (12/2015) K&L Notes: Made exclusively using grapes from the Clos du Val Carneros estate vineyard, the 2014 Chardonnay is a vivid and alluring wine, with layered aromas of baked apple, orange blossom, pear, butterscotch and brioche.

A rather classic example of Napa viticulture and still available at a shockingly realistic price.

2016 Hahn "SLH" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

Hahn selects fruit from four individual Santa Lucia Highlands vineyards for their SLH bottling, which represents a fantastic value for this highly regarded AVA. A cool spring season in the greater Monterey area in 2016 set small clusters of tiny Pinot Noir berries which led to particularly concentrated flavors. The wine was aged in 1/3 new French oak for 11 months before the winemaker selected barrels for inclusion in this bottling that properly represent the Santa Lucia Highlands terroir.

Made from 30% each of Carignan, Syrah and Grenache, with 10% Mourvèdre that was aged in equal parts tank and concrete, it has plenty of fruit, good freshness and a lovable, easy-drinking character.

The palate might also be a little shy and austere, but it feels very balanced with great freshness, fine tannins and a polished texture. This is great value. 10,000 bottles produced and filled in the summer of 2011, so the wine has had enough time in bottle to be ready by now.

It feels a lot more serious and complete than previous vintages, and they attribute it to the superb vintage in Gualtallary, which surely affected the wines; ripeness was very slow, and there are more floral aromas.

2014 Remo Farina Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso (Elsewhere $18)

Wine Spectator: "This easy-drinking red is light- to medium-bodied and balanced, offering a creamy mix of crushed cherry, mocha and cream notes. (AN)" (2/2017) K&L Notes: A distinctive style of wine from Valpolicella in the Veneto, often referred to as the poor man's Amarone. Rather than making wine from dried grapes, as they do Amarone, Rispasso uses an ancient technique where a wine is refermented with the skins and pips of pressed Amarone or Recioto, adding depth and character.

While the focus is on "Brut Nature" (no dosage added) sparkling wine production, they also produce some very interesting still wines.

2014 La Fleur Peyrabon, Pauillac (Previously $25) Top Pick!
2014 La Fleur Peyrabon, Pauillac (Previously $25)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A small part of Château Peyrabon (Haut-Médoc) is in the Pauillac appellation and is vinified and bottled separately. The wine delivers great fruit and equal richness. It is spice, packed with black plum and berry flavors. It is a powerful dense wine to age for several years. Drink from 2023. (RV)" (4/2017) 90 points Vinous: "The 2014 La Fleur Peyrabon is soft, supple and absolutely delicious. Although not especially complex, it offers striking purity of fruit and also drinks quite well today. Expressive floral and spice notes and a burst of red-toned fruit round things out n ...Read More »

2014 Domaine Damien Coquelet Morgon Côte du Py Vieilles Vignes (Previously $26)

93 points Vinous: "Dark ruby. Intense, mineral-laced dark berry and cherry liqueur aromas are complicated by hints of peppery spices and rhubarb. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering nervy blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors that gain depth and sweetness on the back half. Shows outstanding clarity and lift on a very long, sappy finish that's given shape and gentle grip by smooth, even tannins. (JR)" (8/2016) 91 points John Gilman: "The 2014 Morgon 'Côte du Py' from Damien Coquelet is a superb example of the vintage, showing some of the high toned leafy elements of 2014, but floating over ...Read More »

2012 Charles Baur "Brand" Riesling Grand Cru Alsace (Previously $25)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrant ripe red apples mingle with the more mellow notes of baked apples. Above it all, faint floral notes play beautifully. The palate brings out fresher apple flavors of ripe Braeburn and Reinette. Clean and wonderfully invigorating freshness pervades everything and makes for that wonderful Riesling rollercoaster of ripeness and tartness. Lovely and ready now but will be drinking well until 2020, with a lovely baked apple finish. (KW)" (4/2016) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "From 35-year-old vines in coarse sand over mica-rich granite, this wine’s long spice and bitter grapefruit pi ...Read More »

2012 Bodega Numanthia "Numanthia" Toro (Previously $60)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Deep, dense and pure from the opening bell, this Toro is a winner. Aromas of dark ripe black fruits are cool and moderately oaked. This feels massive on the palate but sensationally balanced. Flavors of blackberry, coffee, mocha and toasty oak finish spicy, smooth and heady. Drink this exemplary Toro through 2023. (MS)" (7/2017) 94 points James Suckling: "I love the dark fruits, licorice and stone character on the nose. Full body with dusty tannins that are firm and silky. Fresh and linear with wonderful length. Pretty clarity." (7/2015) 93 points Vinous: "Dark purple. An explosively p ...Read More »

2015 Elephant Hill Chardonnay Hawke's Bay (Previously $20)

95 points Decanter: "Charming fragrance of orange blossom, cashew and spiced oak. On the palate mandarin and lemon rind with a hint of nutty oak. Ticks many boxes of enjoyment with texture and length a highlight. Balanced and very well made." 93 points Sam Kim: "This is elegant and beautifully styled, displaying white nectarine, rockmelon and lemon peel characters with hints of vanilla and hazelnuts on the nose. The palate is focused and finely textured, and delivers excellent fruit purity and rounded mouthfeel, wonderfully framed by well-integrated acidity. Beautifully poised and balanced, and v ...Read More »

2012 Gazin Rocquencourt, Pessac-Léognan (Previously $25)

92 points Vinous: "Black cherry, plum, chalk, smoke, leather and gravel all flesh out in the 2012 Gazin Rocquencourt. Dark and baritonal in its expression, the 2012 is deep, plush and quite expressive. Substantial tannins appear on the finish, suggesting the 2012 needs at least a few years in bottle. Best of all, the 2012 delivers superb quality and personality. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. (AG)" (1/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep, rich, red and black currant fruit, plum, soy and Asian spice are present in this inky/purple wine, which is medium to full-bodied with supple t ...Read More »

2014 Gainey "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay (Elsewhere $22)

92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay is very pretty, supple and nuanced. Apricot, orange blossom, mint, butter and sweet spices flesh out. Supple, forward and tasty, the 2014 is a solid choice for drinking over the next few years. The 2014 finishes with lovely brightness and intensity. This is very nicely done. Gainey makes as many as twenty different wines in each vintage, many of them sold directly at the winery. These four offerings represent the core of the estate's production. Once again, I was quite impressed with what I tasted. The wines are made in an unfussy, mi ...Read More »
