1977 Dow's Vintage Port
Review Date: 11-06-2017

This vintage port is bursting with dark fruit on the nose that transfers immediately to the front palate upon tipping the glass. The balance and structure of this wine keep the fruit from overpowering the mouthfeel, leaving all of your senses touched just right by every delicate drop. Even those unaccustomed to fortified wines will enjoy the complexity and pure joy of this amazing port!

1977 Graham's Vintage Port

A shining star in a stellar vintage from the Duoro. The nose seemed soft and delicate to me for a 40 year old port. The first taste was packed with dark red berries and plum of medium sweetness. The long, lasting finish was earthy and divine. A classic celebratory bottle for any special occasion or just because!

2011 Poggio San Polo Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 10-11-2017
This very developed wine has deep, earthy tones characteristic of the biggest, boldest brunellos. Very savory, rustic, and full-bodied.

2015 Cottanera "Barbazzale" Etna Rosso
Review Date: 10-11-2017
This is a very fruit forward, soft and easily approachable wine. A touch of spice at the end gives it a lot of character and lasting zest. Very food friendly!

Louise Brison "L'Impertinente" Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 10-11-2017
I don't drink a lot of rose wine or champagnes but this was a delightful surprise. Just enough cherry and strawberry notes to give this wine a freshness without being overly sweet. One touch to the lips and your mind thinks of the fantastic pairing possibilities from savory a amuse-bouche to sweet desserts.

2010 Louise Brison Brut Champagne
Review Date: 10-11-2017
Right away my curiousity was peeked while sticking my nose into the glass. Distinctive floral and mineral characteristics develop into a long lasting, toasty finish with bright fruit and acidity. A steal of a deal at this price point!

Ariston Aspasie "Prestige Vieilles Vignes" Champagne
Review Date: 10-11-2017
The wines of Ariston Aspasie are a true delight for even the most seasoned Champagne aficionado. This seasoned and developed bottle from the 2008 harvest drinks beautifully now and will for some time to come. A win-win at this price point!

2014 Tapiz "Alta Collection" Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza
Review Date: 10-08-2017
As a fan of big Napa Valley Cabs, I am always looking for deals on wines that will deliver familiar flavors and feelings. This wine definitely delivers the familiar fruit and complexity of much more expensive wines. A great value now, and it will only develop further!
