2014 d'Yquem, Sauternes(375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Apricot tones with lively acidity give this rich wine a vein of freshness. Pear and white peach notes offer weight, while a lime backbone brings levity. There is a richness from the botrytis that is lifted by this wines delicious freshness." (4/2015) 96-99 points Wine Spectator: "This is beguiling, with acacia, jasmine and honeysuckle notes leading the way, followed by refined peach, tangerine and yellow apple fruit flavors. Very long, with a lemon chiffon note lingering delicately." (5/2015) 97-98 points James Suckling: "A crazy combination of botrytis, dried fruits and freshness. It's not the sweetne ...Read More »

2005 Raymond-Lafon, Sauternes (375ml)

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "No tasting note given." (4/2008) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This is pure and precise, showing rich apricot, peach and clementine flavors, but great cut too, with a mouthwatering edge that lets chamomile, green plum and honeysuckle notes dance through the finish. Gorgeous. (JM, Web-2011)" 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow-gold. Superripe but precise aromas of mirabelle, white nectarine and honey. Supersweet, deep and powerful, with a fat, honeyed character and terrific spicy persistence. A big boy but with lovely balance. (ST)" (7/2008)

2013 Petit Guiraud, Sauternes (375ml)

The second wine of Château Guiraud and made by Xavier Planty, Château Guiraud's oenologist since 1982. It is a modern style with a high proportion of Sauvignon Blanc (approximately one third), made from a blend of lots fermented in stainless steel (for minerality and freshness), and new French oak barrels, which promote the development of richness, body, and intensity of flavor on the palate. Guiraud has employed organic farming methods since 1996, and obtained organic certification in 2011.

Lots of fruit with a tropical fruit undertone of mango and papaya on the palate. Intense finish. Too excellent not to drink."

2014 Bava Malvasia "Rosetta" Castelnuovo Don Bosco (Previously $15)

Made from the Malvasia of Schierano, a black skinned Malvasia that is cold macerated on the skins for 2 days and then gently pressed to preserve its aromatics. The result is nothing short of marvelous, extraordinary aromatics likened to Dog Rose and because it has a bit of tannin from the skins the wine feels remarkably dry. I really think this is an exceptional accompaniment to spicy Asian beef dishes, the sweetness absorbs a bit of the shock from the spiciness and the tannic grip and aromatics go exceptionally well together.

The palate is extremely well balanced and very pure: citrus fruit infusing the honeyed botrytis, veins of white peach and quince, leading to a very precise and sustained finish that leaves you with a smile on your face...and the wine ain't even finished yet! Just a wonderful wine - full of class and nascent joie-de-vivre. Chapeau Denis! (NM)" (4/2016) 95-96 points James Suckling: "Wow. This is really impressive with a fabulous density and style.

2014 Bava Moscato d'Asti

As the Bava Brothers like to say this is Moscato with an Altitude! Grown in south east facing limestone soils in the Alta Langa it is a classic representation of the floral vibrancy of Moscato full of floral and fruit character low in alcohol. Just a bit of fizzy bubbles, not fully sparkling. Moscato is the perfect intermezzo or afternoon refresher and a perfect post dinner dessert wine because it is so delicate and low alcohol. It is also an excellent match to spicy savory dishes not just a sweet wine!

2012 Tschida Angerhof Grüner Veltliner Ice Wine Burgenland (375ml)

96 points Wine & Spirits: ""I’m drinking this," one panelist said, defiantly flaunting our tastings protocol. She wasn’t the only one. The scent alone is hypnotic, heady as the scent rising off a pot of simmering apricot jam. Then there are the swaths of silken, honeyed flavor wrapping around the tongue, spicy, almond-toned, with bright, lifting tangerine acidity. Those flavors linger, a single sip lasting for five minutes, wanting nothing but silence to take it all in. Eiswein doesn’t come often to Hans Tschida’s vineyards on the banks of Lake Neusiedl, so grab this now." (4/2016) ...Read More »

The portfolio of under $25 a bottle selections represents remarkable value for their complex, well-made personalities. Lustau includes a bottling date code as purchasers would want to buy Finos and Manzanillas as young as possible. It is difficult to describe the glories of sherry, but I’ll try.

With time, there are subtle notes of dried fig and dates beginning to emerge and add to the complexity. The ...Read More »

Hidalgo "Napoleon" Amontillado Sanlucar de Barrameda (500ml)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium amber, nutty Napoleon Amontillado is a dry style sherry, also a fine aperitif." (2/2007) Wine & Spirits: "Subtle in its salinity while generous in its nutty flavors, this approachable Amontillado ends on light caramel flavors. For an aperitif with aged goat cheese." (6/2011) K&L Notes: What a terrific Amontillado! Gently toasted nut and candied citrus aromas lead to a subtle, elegant, nutty palate. While the salty, flor qualities are not cranking on all cylinders here, there is an elegance, softness, and long finishing character to this amontillado that makes it one of the ... Read More »

2005 Doisy-Daëne, Sauternes (375ml)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Cellar Selection 0 Under the control of white wine wizard Denis Dubourdieu, this is one of the great wines of Barsac. It has intensity of sweetness, but just the right lightness, which gives it freshness as well as richness. This is a great wine in its early stages, and is certainly likely to age over many years. (RV)" (6/2008) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Doisy-Daëne has a very attractive nose with perfumed apricot blossom, white peach and honey all infused with cold stone scents. The palate is very well balanced w ...Read More »

2013 Justin "Obtuse" Paso Robles Dessert Wine (375ml)

This is a true port-style wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Fermentation is stopped by the addition of a high-proof neutral grape brandy, leaving 7% natural grape sugar in the wine, which is aged in older French oak barrels. Promising to pack a lot of flavor into this little 375ml bottle, it's not just for chocolate and dessert pairings—try it with a cheese plate! The winery's tasting note: "Ripe black cherry, blackcurrant and a subtle berry jelly note mixed with savory Cabernet Sauvignon elements. Full-bodied, sweet but fresh on the palate with ...

1977 Graham's Vintage Port

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Graham is another great port house, producing one of the deepest-colored and sweetest styles of vintage port. Along with Taylor and Fonseca, Graham has probably been the most consistent producer of great port in the post- World War II era. Their tawnys are quite good rather than exceptional, but their vintage ports are truly sublime and sumptuous. (RP)" (1/1989) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Medium ruby-red. Aromas of milk chocolate, plum, mint and violet. Full-bodied, with medium sweetness and lots of berry and cherry fruit. Very fruity and fresh. Long and lively. Delicious now, but w ...Read More »

Lustau "San Emilio Solera Reserva" Pedro Ximénez Jerez

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Although part of Lustau’s basic line, this Solera PX shows great depth of flavor, a complex network of caramelized aromas mingling with notes reminiscent of dried plums, chocolate and exotic spices. Sweet and opulent, this is creamy and rich in all its aspects." (10/2015) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "With piercing aromas of raisin pudding, molasses and spice, this rolls out the welcome mat and more. Luscious is probably as tame as you can put it; this is a ribald sweet wine with acidic backbone and hugely intense flavors of baked brown sugar, cinnamon cake and molasses. Powerful but s ...Read More »

Ramos Pinto Collector Port

Wine Enthusiast: "Full, rich and on the dry side, this is loaded with ripe berry flavors, and it has a core of firm tannins and a touch of acidity. It finishes dry." (4/2013) Wine Spectator: "Features a tannic snap to the firm and chewy cola, beet root and wild berry flavors, with a note of underbrush on the finish. (Web-2013)" K&L Notes: Ramos Pinto's non-vintage ruby is a blend of vintages aged in wood for six years or so, where it develops into a fruity, but rounded effort that offers unbelievable pleasure for the buck. Aromas include fig jam and black pepper. On the palate it is soft and juicy with ... Read More »

Ramos Pinto Quinta Ervamoira 10 Year Old Tawny Port

90 points Wine Spectator: "A plush style, offering flavors of hazelnut, dried apricot and butterscotch, showing good complexity and length. The long finish is richly spiced and smoky, with vanilla and marzipan notes. Drink now. (KM)" (12/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "This has quite a bite with acidity and a strong cut of spirit. Flavors of dried raisins and sultana put it on the dry side of aged tawny. At the end, spice and the wood aging dominate this austere wine. (RV)" (12/2014)

Gonzalez Byass "Viña AB" Amontillado

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Vina AB Amontillado is the youngest of the Amontillados in the Gonzalez-Byass lineup. Produced from Palomino grapes, it has four years of biological (under yeast) aging, and a further four without flor. It has a deep yellow color, a clean, discrete nose of Fino, chalky with its salty notes, but the palate is clearly an elegant, light Amontillado, with intense, piercing flavors, and it fills your mouth, ending very dry. Very drinkable and good value entry-level Amontillado. A leader in young Amontillado category. Drink 2013-2015." (8/2013) K&L Notes: This is a ... Read More »

2003 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow-gold. Spicy, ripe, complex aromas of peach, apricot, orange and nutmeg. Juicy, shapely and sweet, with lovely inner-mouth lift and aromatic character. High-toned and expressive but also quite fresh and precise for the year. Finishes impressively long and firm. A very strong performance for this chateau, and a good value. (ST)" (8/2006) Wine Spectator: "Wow. This shows superintense aromas of dried pineapple, apple tart and pecan pie with honey. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with lovely honey character and a medium finish... Best after 2009." (3/2006) K&L Notes: K&L' Clyde ... Read More »

Ramos Pinto 30 Year Old Tawny Port

95 points Wine & Spirits: "People in Douro argue over the optimal age for a Tawny. As an outsider, it’s easy to know it when you taste it. There’s no mistaking the freshness in this wine, though it lives mysteriously in complete harmony with its aged character, provoking an immediate sense of pleasure (the yum response) followed by an extended moment of meditation. Are you tasting dried cherries? Smelling the scent of mushrooms in the forest? The fresh zest of an orange or the mineral sense of tannins turned to silk? Whatever that fragrant, delicate thing may be, it’s likely to ca ...Read More »
