2004 Nairac, Barsac (Previously $30)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Clean, ripe and pure on the nose, with stone fruit and citrus aromas complicated by minerals, clove and vanillin oak. At once fresh and ripe in the mouth, with intense flavors of apricot nectar and orange. Finishes ripe and long, with a strong spice character to the fruit flavors, and firm spine. Very promising." (7/2006) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Chateau Nairac is closed and reticent on the nose with light pineapple and citrus peel scents. The palate is nicely rounded and viscous on the entry. There are light scents of orange peel and dried apricot and a touch ...Read More »

1989 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Exotically perfumed violet and rose petals burst on your palate, accompanied by dried apricot, lemon and honey flavors. Gorgeous and subtle, glowing on the finish." (4/1995) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vibrant aromas of fruit salad and honey. Moderately viscous and bright in the mouth; not nearly as powerful as the '90. Nicely balanced, even if there still a bit of acidity to be absorbed. Intensely flavored and youthful. (ST)" (7/1998) Jancis Robinson: "Luminous copper. Full and round and very opulent.

1982 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

4 stars Michael Broadbent: "Roasted grapes picked exceptionally early, 16 September. Alcohol 14%. First tasted in 1988: sweet, hefty; minty, spicy; good length and acidity. More recently: waxy yellow; rich bouquet; very sweet, full-bodied. Showing well." This wine is actually better than the heralded 1983. (Nov 1992)

Barrel sample still." (2/2014) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Intense, with ginger, yellow apple chutney, dried pineapple and papaya flavors coursing through a finish that brims with singed almond and lemon chiffon flavors. This retains a touch of youthful rawness, featuring a bitter orange note that's yet to be absorbed. No need to rush or worry here. Best from 2018 through 2040.

2011 Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Port

94 points Wine & Spirits: "David Guimaraens blends this wine from Fonseca vintage lots that do not make the final cut, along with wines initially designated for the LBV. He bottles the wine unfined and unfiltered, intending it to be decanted. His 2011 is remarkable: It has the succulent fruit depths of the Fonseca style, and the intensity of a Vintage-level wine. You could quibble and say the tannins are not Vintage quality, with some rhubarb-like astringency, or the wine is too big and powerful for an LBV. But you're not liekly to find many LBV's with this full-on ripeness, extra ...Read More »

Long and powerful, showing amazing botrytis character, with so much spice and richness, yet also freshness. Even better than the superb 2006.

Dense, spicy and thick on the palate, offering superb purity of fruit framed and lifted by ineffable spicy and minty high tones. Not a particularly fat or powerful style; in fact, the perfectly integrated acidity gives shape to the middle palate and extends the finish, which displays late botrytis notes of barley sugar and honey. A beauty in the making: I tasted the final blend, but the wine will not be bottled until Septe... 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.

This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer.

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Doisy Daene has a generous bouquet with lovely scents of yellow flower and peach infusing the honeyed aromas. The palate is fresh on the entry with tangy orange peel and peachy notes, very harmonious and viscous in texture, leading to a detailed and persistent finish that is one of the most delicious I can remember from this Barsac estate. This wine will always be tinged with sadness, since it coincides with the passing of Denis Dubourdieu. But his legacy will live on in his wines, including this one, which is magnificent.

It is much more introspective compared to the Coutet at the moment, perhaps because of less residual, but it is fragrant and ethereal with wild honey, yellow flower and orange blossom scents developing with aeration.

(BS, Web—2015)" K&L Notes: Villa Pillo is situated in the heart of the Chianti region, equidistant from the famed cities of Pisa, Florence and Siena.

Heitz Cellar "Ink Grade" Napa Valley Port (375ml)

As Wall Street Journal wine writers Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher advise, "If you ever see Heitz Cellars' Ink Grade Port...grab it!" (from "Give Sweets a Chance," 10/2009).

2015 La Caudrina Moscato d'Asti

This wine is naturally "frizzante," or half-sparkling, because of the carbon dioxide created during the autoclave fermentation. You know this delightfully sweet, low-alcohol Moscato d'Asti has to be good--it was brought in by one of our favorite Italian importers, Oliver McCrum. La Caudrina owner Romano Dogliotto was one of the first of the region's small producers to start bottling his own wine. With just 5.5% alcohol by volume, this fresh Moscato tastes like biting into a ripe peach with a refreshing burst of bubbles in the mouth. A fantastic dessert w... Read More »

Pérez Barquero "Gran Barquero" Oloroso Montilla Moriles

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Although most Sherry producers offer PX wines, there is, in fact, very little pedro ximénez planted in Jerez, Sanlúcar and El Puerto. Most of the vines are in Montilla-Moriles, where the grapes can produce both super-sweet and concentrated wines, as well as Finos that are both very dry and very ripe. This Oloroso, aged more than 30 years in botas, is intensely saline and earthy, with complex nutty flavors. It is very dry, yet generous and ripe, a vibrant wine that would go well with braised lamb."

2009 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 is one of the greatest wines ever produced from the estate. It has a riveting bouquet of quince, honey, pear and a touch of clarified butter that is beautifully defined, offering scents of yellow flowers with continued aeration. It is a little heavier and more intense than its peers at this stage. The palate is beautifully balanced with perfectly judged acidity and immense purity. The finish offers crisp honey, quince and clementine notes laden with botrytis that is counterpoised by wonderful acidity. It possesses an unerring sense of completene ...Read More »

Quinta do Noval Black Port

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "'Black' is a new blend produced from classic varieties that do not make it into the Quinta do Noval vintage. There are ripe blackberries, tar, smoke and orange liqueur on the nose that takes time to open. The palate is medium-bodied, very sleek on the entry, fleshy black fruits, sloe, spice and just a hint of white pepper, leading to a very focused finish. Drink now-2020. Tasted April 2010. (NM-Wine Journal)" (3/2010) Jancis Robinson: "This is made from Quinta do Noval's younger vines. The back label urges us to serve it chilled as an aperitif or with dark chocolate at any ...Read More »
