2016 Tohu Sauvignon Blanc Awatere Valley Marlborough Back In Stock! Top Pick!
2016 Tohu Sauvignon Blanc Awatere Valley Marlborough

96 points Decanter: "This has a pure and pristine bouquet with a delicious, layered frame on the palate. Mineral, stony, fresh and pure flavours are bursting through. This is a lovely example of balance, length and complexity that will build over time. Drinking Window 2017 - 2023. (CD)" (7/2017) 93 points Raymond Chan: "Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the edge. This has a very full, broad and voluminous nose with well-packed aromas of pungent passionfruit and ripe, savoury tropical fruits and dark herbs, with an underlying mineral piquancy and freshness ...Read More »

2012 Leeuwin "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $50)

97 points James Suckling: "This is the Mouton-Rothschild of Australia - with a screw cap! Incredibly complex aromas of blackcurrants, spices, cigar box, and berries. Full body, a fantastic palate and polished tannins. Goes for minutes. Better in 2017." (3/2016) 96 points James Halliday: "The headline, the main text and the footnotes all say one thing and one thing only: purity. And I suppose I should add elegance. They simply don't come better in this mode." (10/2016) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Dark ruby red with a black core.

2013 Trinity Hill "Gimblett Gravels" Syrah Hawke's Bay (Black Label) Back In Stock!
2013 Trinity Hill "Gimblett Gravels" Syrah Hawke's Bay (Black Label)

96-97 points Raymond Chan: "Very dark, deep, purple-red colour. The nose is near decadent in richness, with well-ripened black berry fruit. I see plums, hints of boysenberries and black pepper. Black and violet florals lift the aromatics. Nuances of oak spice and complex savoury hints add detail. The palate features the very ripe fruit. Is this verging on showing some over-ripe notes? If so, it works extremely well, as there are still lovely perfumes. The extraction and structure are more a feature on the palate than last showing. The tannins are very fine-grained and powdery.

2013 Au Bon Climat "La Bauge Au Dessus" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Le Bauge Au-dessus is a delicious entry-level estate wine from Au Bon Climat. Scents of rose petal, orange peel, mint and white pepper give the 2013 much of its characteristic upper-register. The 2013 is lifted, gracious and super polished. Most of this fruit is Bien Nacido, with some fruit from Le Bon Climat. The 25% whole clusters are nicely integrated. Jim Clendenen moves from strength to strength with this superb range of wines. Clendenen seems to be enjoying a sort of late career Renaissance now that he is making wines again in h ...Read More »

(9/2015) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A benchmark for Alsace Riesling, Cuvée Frédéric Emile is released only as it approaches maturity, and this 2009 is just getting there now. With kerosene aromas and tight, intensely zesty and mineral flavors, it shows the Trimbach approach—that Riesling needs to be bone dry. It's impressive now, but will be even better from 2016.

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice and #14 in Best 100 of 2016* From one of the preeminent Chardonnay producers in the country comes their least expensive yet perhaps most stunning bottling, showing strong lemon rind, sea salt, Gravenstein apple and a floral touch of honeysuckle on the nose. The wondrously zippy and saline palate is framed by a grippy, grapefruit-rind-led tension, but opens just enough to allow the slightest hints of lemon curd and delicate marzipan warmth.

(1/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The generic 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve comes from a mix of sites, ranging from Yountville in the south to Calistoga in the north, as well as some mountain vineyards, such as Atlas Peak.

It does have the contrast of fresh black-currant acidity to give it a lift. But with the power behind it, the wine will develop slowly.

2013 Rhys San Mateo County Pinot Noir

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Much more fruit loaded and rounded than the Santa Cruz Mountains release, the 2013 Pinot Noir San Mateo County comes mostly from the Family Farm vineyard, with a touch from Horseshoe. It gives up lots of strawberry, Bing cherry, spice, and floral nuances to go with beautiful fruit and texture on the palate. It's one of the most approachable Pinots in the lineup, but I suspect it will still have another 5-7 years of longevity.

Otherwise there is excellent richness to the dense, sappy and almost oily flavors that despite the high ripeness, weight and volume manages to retain a relatively refined mouth feel, all wrapped in a lingering and minerally finish. Good stuff that is a bit more accessible and as such should drink well early on."

The succulent, round, concentrated and voluminous flavors possess a seductive, even silky, mouth feel while delivering seriously good length on the powerful yet refined finish. This too should age effortlessly for a decade, indeed perhaps even longer." (6/2017) 94 points John Gilman: "The 2015 Combettes from the Boudot family is outstanding and reminds me quite a bit of the 1992 version when it was young.

An impressive wine with a tremendous energy." (7/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "A Chardonnay that shows sliced apple and pear aromas with hints of stone and mineral.

It has an inky purple color and a stunning nose of spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of incense and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and stunningly concentrated, this 2012 is a great success in the vintage, one of the superstars. Moreover, its precociousness suggests it could be drunk in the next 4-5 years or cellared through 2025. I underrated this wine dramatically in my report of April, 2013 (Issue 206).

Powerful, seductively perfumed aromas of red and dark berry preserves, Asian spices and potpourri, with cola and vanilla nuances adding complexity. Stains the palate with vibrant black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and picks up a smoky nuance with air. Shows impressive vivacity on the finish, which features silky tannins and a touch of candied rose."

Sweet red plum and cherry fruit fill out the wine's supple frame effortlessly. (AG)" (8/2016) K&L Notes: According to the winery: "The Eastside Road Neighbors Pinot Noir always shows a darker fruit profile, when compared to its Westside Road counterpart.

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Williams Selyem has been buying grapes from Calegari since 2008, but this is the first vineyard designate they’ve made from this small vineyard in the heart of the Russian River Valley. At first the wine feels overly dramatic, its brash, rooty tannins vying against a plump fruit sweetness. It’s flavorful and structured, but it still needs some time to come into focus. With air it builds into a more gentle persistence, the fatness of its texture cushioning dark, spicy tones that would be delicious with grilled quail."

Tart mulberry, Kalamata olive, hibiscus, rose hips, red plum and sandalwood aromas wrestle attention immediately, then the sip delivers bergamot, cedar ash, exotic cranberry and rosemary depth. It delivers an excellent combination of wood, fruit and herb.

2013 E. Pira Chiara Boschis "Via Nuova" Barolo

Beams of searing tannin and vibrant, pointed acidity wrap around the virile, imposing finish. Readers will have to be patient with the 2013, as it is likely to be slow to mature in bottle. Even so, the purity of the flavors and textures is compelling. (AG)" (2/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "This is all about fruit defined by a purity and clarity that I really appreciate.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cote de Tablas Blanc, which includes less Viognier than normal, checks in as an even split of Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne. It's a perfumed, elegant and textured white that offers lots of citrus and saltiness as well as more background notes of chamomile, flowers and spice. It will shine on the dinner table, and while I'd lean toward drinking bottles over the coming couple of years, it will evolve for longer. (JD)" (8/2016) 91 points Vinous: "Light bright yellow.

However, it continued to grow and gain depth as the evening wore on, and it was clearly the superior of the two wines by the time it had fully unfolded.

It has a captivating nose: blackberry and boysenberry fruit coming at you at full pelt; dried blood and bacon fat developing as secondary aromas just behind. There is fine delineation here - an underlying mineralité sure to surface with time. The palate is very intense and disarmingly youthful, almost ferrous on the entry with layers of ripe black fruit ...Read More »

2010 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero Back In Stock!
2010 Vega Sicilia "Valbuena" Ribera del Duero

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Since the 2010 harvest, they ferment plot by plot, and it shows. This Valbuena has almost 100 components in it, smaller lots, all of them corresponding to a plot of vines. It has all the signs of being one of the best vintages ever for this second wine from Vega Sicilia, mostly Tempranillo but with 5% Merlot that matured five months in 20,000-liter oak vats, 18 months in new barriques (equal parts French and American oak), three months in used barrels and then five months in the vats again before being bottled in May 2013. 2010 seems to have the exuberan ...Read More »

2012 Peter Michael "Ma Danseuse" Fort Ross-Seaview Pinot Noir (Previously 450) Back In Stock!
2012 Peter Michael "Ma Danseuse" Fort Ross-Seaview Pinot Noir (Previously 450)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The compelling 2012 Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse (1,480 cases) is even better than the 2013. Notes of lead pencil shavings, DRC-like forest floor, black raspberry, blackcurrant, Asian plum sauce, rose petal and sweet cherry characteristics are found in this spectacular, multidimensional, prodigious Pinot Noir that should drink well for 10-15+ years. The clonal material probably came from one of the DRC vineyards, so it is not surprising that. in this cool climate, with the great fruit purity California can achieve, there is a DRC-like resemblance.

2011 Carlisle "Carlisle Vineyard" Russian River Valley Zinfandel Back In Stock!
2011 Carlisle "Carlisle Vineyard" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard is plush, rich and inviting. All sorts of black fruits, smoke, tar and graphite flesh out in this supple, deeply expressive wine. In 2011 the Carlisle is notable for its lush, rich, totally inviting personality. At the same time, it has fabulous detail and nuance for such a big, explosive wine. The tannins remain firm, but there is more than enough density in the fruit to provide balance. (AG)" (4/2013) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky purple. Heady scents of black raspberry, boysenberry, incense and candied violet, along with subtle notes of blac ...Read More »

2013 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2013 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, including fruit from some of the oldest Cabernet vines still in existence in Napa. This full-bodied classic displays notes of forest floor, earth, crème de cassis, blackberry liqueur, licorice and some pen ink. It is dense, full-bodied, prodigiously rich, massive in intensity, yet relatively light on its feet. This great ballerina of a wine has extraordinary ripeness but pulls back from the edge before going over the top. There are 1,000 cases of this classic, which should age effo ...Read More »

1988 Margaux, Margaux Back In Stock!
1988 Margaux, Margaux

95 points Wine Spectator: "This has both sinew and flesh, with taut dried red currant, blackberry and plum skin notes that are forced to expand outward as the core of black tea, charcoal, plum paste and dark humus fills in quickly behind them. The charcoal-tinged grip carries the finish, with more bass than treble at first, but there's perfume here as well. Seriously long and the most overlooked of the truly great vintages here. (JM, Web—2014)" 93 points James Suckling: "Mineral and blueberry skin and flowers on the nose. It's full-bodied with minerals and silky tannins. Dusty and very pretty. Refined finish. ...Read More »

2006 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2006 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 was made from 32% Bancroft Ranch, 24% Steinhauer Ranch, 19% St. Helena Home Vineyard, with smaller amounts from Rancho del Oso, Chabot Vineyard, Marston Ranch and Lampyridae. A big heat wave in July was the salient weather factor in this vintage. The harvest began early and continued for five weeks. Abundant smoke, chocolate, espresso roast, cassis and mocha characteristics are found in this full-bodied, powerful, layered Cabernet. Although not quite as seamless as the nearly perfect 2005 Private Reserve, it is a big, dense beauty from a somewha ...Read More »

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Pure, expansive aromas of blackberry, violet and rose petal, with a hint of black olive. Juicy, penetrating dark berry flavors are strikingly spicy and gain sweetness with air. More open than the Horseshoe Vineyard now, showing excellent finishing clarity and power. (ST)" (6/2010) 92 points John Gilman: "Skyline Vineyard is very high in elevation at more than 2300 feet above sea level, with a very rocky soil that adds great minerality to the wines produced from this site. This is of course still young vines, and to my palate the pinot noir from Skyline is more expressi ...Read More »

Fleshy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors gain depth with air, taking a turn to boysenberry and plum. Dusty tannins add grip to the long, meaty finish." (11/2008) 89 points Wine Spectator: "Firm, grapey cherry and wild berry is served up in a medium-bodied style, offering good structure and ending with firm tannins. Best from 2009 through 2014."

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This is a mix of Mourvédre, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Syrah, Carignane and Peloursin from a two-acre site planted long ago. Smoky and yet pretty in rose, orange and mushroomy earth, it maintains a steady streak of raspberry, blackberry, leather and licorice. (VB)" (5/2015) 91-93 points Vinous: "Carlisle's 2012 Red Wine Two Acres is showing beautifully today. The flavors are bright and beautifully focused in this vintage.

2009 Ovid Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Ovid is stunningly beautiful. At times it shows a little more depth, power and richness than the Hexameter, but both wines are compelling. Endless layers of fruit saturate the palate as this rich, intense wine conquers the heart and intellect. A totally vivid wine, the 2009 is even more impressive from bottle than it was from barrel. Over the time I followed it, the 2009 gained finesse and elegance in the glass, which bodes quite well for the future. Intense graphite, crushed rocks and pencil shaving nuances add energy to the polished, huge fini ...Read More »

Blackberry and stone fruit tones are framed by soft, gentle tannins, sprinkled liberally with cardamom. A floral aroma permeates gently refreshing acidity and a finish of dark chocolate." (7/2015) Connoisseurs Guide: "The Williams Selyem name might have become famous for high-end Pinot Noirs, but, as this intense, fully expressed Zinfandel so capably shows, the winery knows its way around the vineyards of other varie ...Read More »

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yet another new wine, the 2011 Syrah Steiner Vineyard presents an intriguing melange of dark fruit, savory herbs, licorice and menthol. This medium-bodied, highly expressive Syrah should be approachable upon release. The 2011 has a gorgeous core of dark red and blue fruit and terrific overall balance without too many of cooler climate, gamier Syrah notes. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023.

2010 Williams Selyem "Williams Selyem Estate Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

97 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Three Stars* The 2010 roster of Pinots from Williams Selyem arguably ranks with the best we have seen, yet, among the many beauties therein contained, this outstanding effort lodges a hard-to-dispute claim of occupying the very head of an overachieving class. It is as deep and concise and pure in fruit as it is impeccably polished, and its layered flavors of ripe cherries, vanilla, crème caramel and graphite compel sip after satisfying sip. It is amazingly rich, but it is always light on its feet, and we confess that waiting for it to grow into its best ...Read More »
