Staff Favorites

If you’re going to have Robert Parker or Stephen Tanzer over for dinner, selecting a wine they’ve rated highly will be a nice choice. However, when you’re buying wines for yourself, we’d love to see you find wines that match up your unique palate and pocketbook. We have a large staff of friendly and knowledgeable wine professionals that taste hundreds of wines each week. They can put you in touch with bottles that you are likely to love, often at a much lower cost than the highly-rated gems that often see a run-up in price and frequent availability issues. Like any great group of opinionated professionals, our staff has varied tastes themselves. Often our customers will find a particular staff member with a style that corresponds to their own. That concept works extremely well in our retail stores, and this section is our effort to bring you the same online. Don’t get us wrong, we love the highly rated wines from the press and will continue to offer them, but we think you’re missing out if you’re not augmenting those selections with picks from our excellent staff. Here are their favorites. (Click on a name to see their other selections - or to drop them a line.) Cheers!

2013 Lynch Bages Blanc, Bordeaux
By: Jacques Moreira | Review Date: 4/25/2015 | Send Email
A classic Bordeaux white, with some grassy notes on the nose intermingled with lanolin, bee wax, and citrous fruit. Very crisp and refreshing on the palate, with not a lot of apparent oak. Very elegant.

1996 du Tertre, Margaux
By: Jacques Moreira | Review Date: 4/25/2015 | Send Email
Showing development on the color and on the nose as well, which is very welcoming. Lots of minerality, black olives, leather, earth and plum, framed by an elegant touch of herbaceousness. Tannins already settled and this beautiful wine is ready to go. Very good indeed.

2012 Neudorf "Tom's Block" Pinot Noir Nelson
By: Ryan Woodhouse | Review Date: 4/25/2015 | Send Email
I've long admired Neudorf's wines. A visit to the winery back in early 2011 was one of the best tastings I did that year. The purity, depth and consistent quality of the wines really impressed me then and continues to do so today. The 2012 "Tom's Block" represents an exceptional value in Pinot Noir. Coming mostly from Neudorf's heralded Moutere Hills vineyards where a mix of clay and gravel soil ushers forth wines with great intensity and silky texture. The wine is richly fruited and pure but not heavy or extracted. It's highly fragrant nose (red florals, cherry, clove, spiced orange peel) and lively, layered palate belie the wines $20 price point. Nice mid-palate acidity, some savory spices and damp earthy notes add a distinctly Burgundian tone and make the wine very food friendly. I am so pleased we can make this wine accessible to so many people by offering it in the sub-$20 price point, it is seriously impressive wine.
Top Value!

Westland American Single Malt Whisky 750ml
By: David Driscoll | Review Date: 4/24/2015 | Send Email
The great American single malt has finally arrived and it's being made in Seattle, Washington. Don't believe me? Get a bottle and see for yourselves. This is made on real Forsyth pot stills just like in Scotland, aged in bourbon and sherry casks, and brimming with Macallan-like flavor. It's still a bit young, but man is it going to get better.

2013 Weingut Allram "Papageno" Wiessburgunder (Pinot Blanc) Kamptal
By: Mahon McGrath | Review Date: 4/24/2015 | Send Email
Apple blossom, lemon verbena, pea shoots, tangerine and meyer lemon scents emerge from the glass as you swirl this Austrian Pinot Blanc. “Emerge” doesn’t quite do it justice; there is a bodacious richness to the aromatics here. This firms up a bit on the palate, with the weight and flesh snapped into line by high acidity. Pleasantly juicy, there is just a wisp of something like almond/hazelnut-y lurking on the margins, before it finishes clean and fresh. If you like Chardonnay’s power, but are burned out on oak and butter, this Weissburgunder could be your lifeline.

2012 Domaine Courtois "La Grange" Vinsobres
By: Keith Mabry | Review Date: 4/24/2015 | Send Email
Courtois is a property acquired by the Jaume family in 2003. The winery itself had fallen into disrepair but the vineyards were in remarkable condition. What distinguishes Vinsobres is its elevation, with vineyards sitting at 350 to 450 meters, and the latitude being the northernmost of the Côtes du Rhône crus. The wines show more northern Rhône characteristics—think cooler Grenache flavors of fresh (not jammy) fruit intermingled with spicy Syrah notes. The “La Grange,” a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, is elegant and refined, with a perfume of wild berries and spices. On the palate there is white pepper, crushed raspberries and blackberry fruit. With lovely balance and fine tannins, “La Grange” is lively and buoyant for a southern Rhône red. One of my new favorites!

2013 Clot de l'Origine "Le P'tit Barriot" Côtes du Roussillon
By: Keith Mabry | Review Date: 4/24/2015 | Send Email
The 2013 “Le P’tit Barriot” Rouge is a revelation. It is Syrah with pure notes of crushed strawberries, pomegranate and Szechuan pepper. It has a briary, spicy quality that emulates our expectation of Syrah from the northern Rhône, something a lot of Roussillon Syrah is lacking. Here you get finesse, fine tannins, a touch of smoked meat, fresh fruit and hints of potpourri; my highest recommendation for fans of cool climate, quality Rhône-styled reds.

2012 Domaine Jessiaume Volnay 1er Cru "Brouillards"
By: Gary Westby | Review Date: 4/24/2015 | Send Email
The 2012 Domaine Jessiaume Volnay 1er Cru "Brouillards" was the first wine that I have ever had from this cru in the middle of the commune. Jessiaume owns just over half an acre in this vineyard situated between the premier crus of Mitans and Combes Dessus. It is vilified in 30% new oak for one year and then five months of settling in stainless steel before bottling. This wine had the magic of the commune, with wild berry fruit, some cracked pepper and new leather elements on the nose. The wild fruit gives way to sophisticated, light bodied purity in the mouth, and the finish is near Champagne like in its laser like focus and outstanding purity.

2011 Hospices de Beaune Volnay "Cuvée Blondeau (Corcia)"
By: Gary Westby | Review Date: 4/24/2015 | Send Email
While very young for drinking now, the 2011 Hospices de Beaune Volnay "Cuvée Blondeau" showed me why these charity bottlings are so famous. The Blondeau is composed of 4.5 acres of vines spread across four different 1er crus: Champans, Tailpieds, En L’Ormeau and Roncerets. It started off the evening closed, but with air showed incredible smoky density, firm structure and incredible cut on the long finish. This will evolve into a great “blood making” Cote de Beaune in time, and I have made room in my cellar for some!

2012 Domaine Cyrot-Buthiau Volnay
By: Gary Westby | Review Date: 4/24/2015 | Send Email
This wine sees about 15 months in 40% new wood, and shows the more supple, textural, sexier side of Volnay. It is a medium to full bodied wine with quite rich black cherry fruit that is kissed with a little mocha. This generous wine has the clean acidity for the Burgundy graduate, but is open and showy enough to drink now with folks who have yet to join the Burgundy cult.

2013 Domaine Gerard Tremblay Chablis 1er Cru "Fourchaumes Vieilles Vignes"
By: Gary Westby | Review Date: 4/24/2015 | Send Email
The powerhouse wine of the Tremblay line! This wine comes from a plot of vines planted back in 1951 and has the intensity and scale one would expect from old vines in a top premier cru site. While this wine is fantastic now for the price on the merits of its big, pure white fruit and virile acidity, the best is yet to come from it. A bottle of the 2008 that I tasted this month blew my mind, and with a few years this 2013 will integrate into something good enough to be on the table with any white Burgundy.

This is Tremblay’s largest premier cru holding with vines ranging from 35-40 years of age. For me, this is the most textbook of all the Chablis that we have in stock, the kind that I would love to meet in a blind tasting! The fabulous pure earth flavors, creamy texture and electric acidity had me coming back for more. It was spectacular with Dungeness crab. This drinks great right now, but so do the 10-year-old bottles in my cellar!

2013 Clot de l'Origine "Le P'tit Barriot" Côtes du Roussillon
By: Ivan Diaz | Review Date: 4/24/2015 | Send Email
This is an exciting and unique expression of Syrah from certified organic and bio-dynamic vineyards in Rousillon that somehow manages to represent and balance the best aspects of this varietal's rather disparate modes. Taking a cue from Australia's version, this wine shows plenty of rich blue and black fruits, but it also portrays its affiliation with the lean, peppery side of Syrah from the northern Rhone. Add to that some very pretty, floral aromatics and you're left with a compellingly multi-layered, but surprisingly cohesive bottling. Highly recommended.

With no vines under 40 years and most planted in 1957, this is truly an old vine cuvee. The exotic white fruit of the 2013 vintage is here, but the wine is balanced by a shock of acidity and great clean earth flavors. This is perfect for drinking now either on its own or with shellfish, but will keep well for another five years.

This is a Merlot-based Bordeaux blend from the Gimblett Gravels of New Zealand that drinks with a quality rarely found in Bordeaux at this price point.

A rich but easy-going, immediately likeable bottling that would pair great with rack of lamb or a nice, hearty steak.

This is reminiscent of a Marsannay Rose with its concentration and structure, but with more exuberant aromatics and a ripe fresh fruit that pops on the palate. The nose is watermelon, subtle red berries and a delicate floral element, this wine smells like summer! Light and refreshing on the palate with vein of savory extract that makes all the fruit dance on your palate, just like a sprinkle of salt on fresh fruit. This will not last for long, you will want to buy several bottles, I have.

By: Greg St. Clair | Review Date: 4/23/2015 | Send Email
This is a powerful, brooding, concentrated wine, so dense that is doesn't seem like it is from this vintage. Yet the richness, dark, plumy fruit make this a serious wine, especially for those who don't mind a bit of vanillin toast and wood tannins. The wine is very powerful and will need some time to come together but there is definitely some depth worth waiting for. Best to age for a while.

From the exceptional 2010 vintage in Barolo the Terre da Vino folks have released an outstanding wine at an unbelievable price. The wine's nose is full of a complex blend of plum, smoke and leather but it is on the palate that the wine is sensational. Most 2010's will be headed to your cellar but this wine can go right to the table. The palate has a supple, powerful, luxurious feel to it that shows lots of rich fruit along with spice and earth, and the tannins are really well integrated. A long, vibrant finish really makes this wine a sensational drink now or for quite a few years to come.

Here Sangiovese is at its best showing long, elegant lines with supple wild cherry character that enliven the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot that add a little international swagger to the austere Sangiovese.

Terralsole comes from the southeast corner of Montalcino's growing zone and is outstanding in this classic 5* vintage.

Glenmorangie Túsail Limited Edition Single Malt Whisky 750ml
By: David Driscoll | Review Date: 4/23/2015 | Send Email
I love that there are a few distilleries interested in playing around with different strains of barley. What they've shown us without a doubt so far is that it absolutely DOES make a difference (whether you care about it, or not is a different question). The Bruichladdich Bere Barley was the first example of a unique and wildly different style of malt, and the Tusail now is the next great presentation. It's spicy, gingery, mealy, and full of inherent flavor that obviously doesn't come from the wood. It's textural and exotic, malty and rich. It's a home run from the best whisky development team in Scotland.

Sharing a similar purity and vibrancy with Gelin's delicious Fixin village wine, the Clos Napoleon is more structured with fine chalky tannins and has more tension to the tart acidity and crunchy red fruits. Hard ground spices and bay leaf add complexity. Great intensity while remaining light footed. The is a minerality here that is quite profound.

A wine of ultimate purity and elegance. Super fresh, crunchy berries, clove, nutmeg, hints of more exotic Asian spice with air. The wine is supple, and vibrant on the palate. It has that "cool" mouth feel and remarkable concentration given it's fairly light extraction. This wine has all the hallmarks of super cool climate Pinot that I love without coming off under-ripe in anyway. It is beautifully polished without being over worked.

2006 Drappier "Grande Sendrée" Brut Champagne
By: Gary Westby | Review Date: 4/23/2015 | Send Email
This was the star of the show at the Ordere Coteaux Champenois dinner at the Ritz! This is one of the most special single vineyard Champagnes that I have ever had, and shows the blending is not the only way to achieve balance... Sometimes it is just all there in the site, waiting to be coaxed out with great vineyard management and careful winemaking! This wine has both incredible nutella on brioche richness and scintillating chalky minerality. It also has a peacocks tail finish that goes on so long that I feel like I am still tasting it today... 12 hours later! If you want to treat yourself to one of the best bottles in the whole Champagne region, you have found a great example! This single vineyard Champagne comes from a plot called the Sendree, which was the site of a terrible fire in 1838. Sendree is a mispelling of the French word for cinders which ended up immortalized in the land registers of the village of Urville. It is composed of about half each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and sees 1/3 fermentation in large wood barrels. The site is slightly cooler than most of the Drappier estate in Urville, making this a great wine for ageing even in a ripe vintage like 2006.
