2015 Hahn "SLH" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir Top Pick!
2015 Hahn "SLH" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

90 points Wine Spectator: "A graceful style that's medium-weight, with spicy, floral flavors of wilted rose and raspberry. Well-focused and persistent, maintaining its graceful balance and ending clean, with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2022. (JL, Web-2017)" K&L Notes: Great $20 to $30 Pinot Noirs are rare these days with the grapes themselves, and the materials to make them the right way, costing too much to keep it in that range over time. Sure, Pinot at that price is everywhere but most are mass produced and don't much like the varietal on the label. We are always apprehensive a... Read More »

2014 Tenuta San Guido "Guidalberto" Toscana (Elsewhere $45)

94 points Decanter: "The second wine of Tuscan legend, Sassicaia. If you like Bordeaux, you will love this – a riper, modern take on the French style. The blend of 60% Cabernet and 40% Merlot aged in French and American oaks offers up ripe, almost sweet, fruits with layers of black cherry, blackcurrant, liquorice and spice. A luxurious mouthfeel with cocoa-dusted tannins make this a great food wine and is truly incredible value for the quality. Another winner from Tenuta San Guido."

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

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.

The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then aged in French oak tonneaux for 8 months. The result is an easy drinking full-bodied red that has lots of rich soft, smooth texture.

The wine is again fairly reserved when first opened and deserves a bit of time in decanter to start to stir, but once it opens up, it delivers a deep and complex bouquet of black cherries, sweet dark berries, gamebird, dark soil tones, a touch of chicory and a smoky topnote.

2014 Roserock (Drouhin Oregon) Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay (Previously $33)

95 points James Suckling: "A very pretty texture to this wine with cream and dried apples in addition to hints of lemons and limes. A medium to full body and soft yet bright acidity. Love this fabulous wine. Don't miss it." (11/2016) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The first offering from Domaine Drouhin Oregon’s newly-minted vineyard, RoseRock.

2010 Chapoutier-Laughton (La Pleiade) "Cluster M45" Shiraz Heathcote Victoria (Elsewhere $70+)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple, the 2010 Cluster M45 Shiraz has lovely floral and herbal notes wafting over a solid core of youthful blackberries and black cherries with nuances of Chinese five spice and cloves. Great intensity and balance in a rather modest medium-full body with great graininess to the tannins and plenty of freshness. It finishes long. Note that no 2011 Cluster M45 was produced.
