Hints of stone fruit blend easily into cherries while garrigue scents wander in and out, adding attractive lavender, thyme and bay leaf notes. Give it a year or two to soften, and drink it over the next 5 years. (JC)" (11/2017)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This house makes rather restrained yet rich, flavorful vintage port and a very good tawny called Nimrod. Their vintage ports seem slow to develop... they have a unique mineral-scented character that gives them their own complexity and style. The 1985 is the sweetest and richest of the recent Warre vintages. Extremely concentrated, rich, even luscious, this full-bodied, intense, opulent wine has layers of fruit, a full-blown bouquet, and impeccable balance.

90 points Wine Spectator: "Very pretty berry and plum character with hints of vanilla and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a lovely finish. All in finesse here. Lovely texture. Best after 2010." (03/06) According to Robert Parker: "Readers looking for open-knit, fruity, delicious, bistro-styled wines that can be consumed in their youth should check out this St.-Emilion estate. A dark ruby/plum/purple color is accompanied by sweet kirsch liqueur, licorice, spice box, and cedar aromas in the fleshy, medium-bodied, seductive 2003. With lo... Read More »

2013 Carpe Diem Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (Previously $30) Back In Stock!
2013 Carpe Diem Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (Previously $30)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Lighter, leaner flavors like cranberry, rhubarb and tart cherry light up this wine from the first sniff through the tangy finish. Balanced on the fresher, crisper side of the spectrum, it has firm tannins, an appetizing dry texture and medium body. The focused fruit flavors and light spicy accents make it distinctive. (JG)" (10/2015) Wine & Spirits: "This is simple and approachable, with a soft red cherry flavor that ends with spark of alcohol, the fruit accumulating just enough sandy grip to hold everything together." (4/2016) Wine Spectator: "Well-focused on a narrow mix ...Read More »

2005 Hanzell Sonoma Valley Chardonnay Back In Stock!
2005 Hanzell Sonoma Valley Chardonnay

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Few wineries in California can craft a Chard as rich, balanced and ageworthy as this. In its youth this ‘05 is flashy in lemondrop, pear and spicy anise, with a honeyed finish and crisp acidity. It’s quite addictively brilliant, a wine whose lush harmony mesmerizes the palate. But Hanzell Chards invariably age well, and this is a wine you can dependably put into your cellar for 5, 10, 15 years, even longer, as it continues to evolve and become more limpid and minerally." (2/2008) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Meaty and round, this is packed with alcohol, which makes ...Read More »

2005 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml) Back In Stock!
2005 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Rieussec is a blend of 90% Semillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle picked between 23 September and 27 October. It has a fabulous bouquet that is mineral-rich and tensile. The palate repeats its performance from last year: focused, tense, laden with botrytis-rich fruit with a crystalline and sorbet-fresh finish that seals the deal. One of the best releases from the estate in recent years. (NM)" (1/2017) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Shows enticing aromas of toffee, cream, dried apricot and caramel. Full-bodied, very sweet and thick, with honey and caramel flavors. Long a ...Read More »

2011 Walter Hansel "North Slope" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir New!
2011 Walter Hansel "North Slope" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "92+ points. The 2011 Pinot Noir North Slope is delicate, sensual and totally beautiful from the very first taste. Here it is the wine’s silkiness that stands out most. Sweet red berries, flowers and mint all flow through to the finish. This is a decidedly restrained version of the North Slope. Crushed flowers, tobacco and plums add complexity on the finish. My overall impression is that the 2011 will be an early drinker because of its modest structure, especially vis-a-vis the 2010. At the same time, it is impossible to miss the wine’s energy. Anticipate ...Read More »

1983 Fonseca Vintage Port Back In Stock!
1983 Fonseca Vintage Port

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fonseca is one of the great port lodges, producing the most exotic and most complex port. If Fonseca lacks the sheer weight and power of a Taylor, Dow or Warre, or the opulent sweetness and intensity of a Graham, it excels in its magnificently complex, intense bouquet of plummy, cedary, spicy fruit and long, broad, expansive flavors. With its lush, seductive character, one might call it the Pomerol of Vintage ports. When it is young, it often loses out in blind tastings to the heavier, weightier, more tannic wines, but I always find myself upgrading my o ...Read More »

It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, lots of fruit, and a round, seductive style with good ripeness and a heady finish. Drink it over the next 6-8 years. (RP)" (10/2014)

2007 Domaine de la Charbonnière "Cuvée Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
2007 Domaine de la Charbonnière "Cuvée Vieilles Vignes" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Much more serious and reserved, the 2007 Domaine de la Charbonnière Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is a quintessential old vine Grenache cuvee. A blend of 70% old-vine Grenache (from 70-80 year-old vines) and 30% Mourvèdre, that comes all from the famed La Crau lieu-dit, it exhibits a beautifully rich bouquet of licorice-laced blackberry, smoked earth like minerality, leather, nori, and dried garrigue. This flows to a full-bodied Châteauneuf-du-Pape that has a firm, structured, yet beautifully concentrated feel, fantastic balance, and savory, ...Read More »

2013 Marchesi di Frescobaldi "Castello di Pomino" Chardonnay Pomino Bianco

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright pale straw. Lemon, white peach and jasmine on the knockout nose, with an enticing spicy nuance emerging at the back. Fresh and pure in the mouth, offering a lovely fruit/acid balance and repeating floral and white stone fruit flavors that linger impressively. Grown at between 400 and 700 meters above sea level, both the chardonnay and pinot bianco in this blend have a rare opportunity to shine in Tuscany at Frescobaldi’s magnificent Castello di Pomino, which sits in enchanted, almost alpine countryside."

Shows the finesse and drinkability of the 2012 vintage." (1/2016) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Both generously fruited and solidly structured with a steady fix on fairly deep, classically curranty Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, this inviting wine gains added richness from its well-integrated oak and flirts with touches of graphite and sweet soil. It is full and slightly supple on entry before ample tannins arrive to remind that it is, in fact, still a youngster that i ...Read More »

2003 Duhart-Milon, Pauillac

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A spectacular wine, and one that could have been bought for a song when it was released, this blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 27% Merlot was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. Strutting all of its nobility, richness and majesty in 2014, it boasts abundant notes of cedarwood, creme de cassis, licorice and a hint of lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied, rich, dense and fully mature, it is capable of lasting another 7-10 years. This beauty is a big-time sleeper of the vintage.
