2012 Domaine Philippe Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Chenevottes" (Elsewhere $70)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2012 tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru les Chenevottes did not really perform when I tasted it from barrel, but it appears to have blossomed into quite a lovely wine. Here, it has a stony, slightly pithy bouquet with fresh pear and lime flower notes, demonstrating little more complexity and nuance than the Les Vergers 2012. The palate is fresh and crisp, nicely integrated oak, candied peach and pineapple surfacing towards the finish that feels quite long and refined. This is a very commendable Chassagne ...Read More »

2013 Lincourt "Steel" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay (Elsewhere $15)

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star, Good Value* No matter that this unoaked bottling treds a direct, green apple line with few complex adjuncts in its makeup, such is the way of Chardonnays of its ilk, and this one makes a pretty good stab at capturing lively, somewhat juicy fruit. There is a not unexpected bit of fresh, slightly candied fruit here and little in the way of the rich, buttery side of the variety to be sure. Yet, all in all, this wine is both easy to take and easy on the wallet." (7/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This stainless-steel take shows lime juice, golden apples and white pepper on t ...Read More »

2012 Domaine Philippe Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Maltroie" (Elsewhere $70)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale, green-tinged yellow. Cooler, more precise aromas of pear and lemon ice. Juicy and aromatic in the mouth, showing very good precision to the flavors of pear, stone fruit and white flowers. The wine's touch of sweetness (actually, 2.2 grams per liter) is nicely buffered by ripe acidity and saline minerality. Finishes savory and long, with good mineral firmness. Terrific balance here.

(2/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mastrojanni is on a roll. This extraordinary estate has been enjoying the spotlight lately and very much deserves the attention. I'm adding my name to a long list of their fans. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a classic expression of Sangiovese with soft lines and enduring flavors. You do feel some of the vintage heat, but the ripeness is contained thanks to the delicate and nuanced nature of its fruit. It al ...Read More »

2014 Gerard Bertrand Corbieres

90 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 of 2016* Full-bodied and powerful, with decadent layers of raspberry compote, kirsch and red plum notes that are met with savory details of herb and cured meat. Offers a tangy, hot stone-accented finish. Drink now through 2025. (GS)" (11/2016) K&L Notes: Though growing up in a wine producing family, Gerard Bertrand's path to top winemaker is a little more circumspect. At the age of 19 he became a top rugby player in the French leagues where he had a distinguished career for 17 years, even serving as captain of Stade Francais. During his career as a player...

2013 Cantine di Ora "Amicone" Rosso Veneto (Elsewhere $18)

Amicone is made from predominantly Corvina grapes (same grapes that go into Amarone) but are dried for a shorter period and on the vine not on mats like Amarone. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then aged in French oak tonneaux for 8 months. The result is an easy drinking full-bodied red that has lots of rich soft, smooth texture.

2015 Lunae Colli di Luni Vermentino

This Tuscan Vermentino comes from the Colli di Luni which is right at the Ligurian border. The wine was fermented on the skins for 48 hours and has a simply stunning character. Loads of nascent fruit are wrapped around a core of mineral salts, spice and producing a palate feel that is absolutrely scintillating. A long finish that is so expressive, I really think this wine is fantastic.

Supple, forward and tasty, the 2014 is a solid choice for drinking over the next few years. The 2014 finishes with lovely brightness and intensity. This is very nicely done.

The palate is smooth and with a touch of viscosity, a keen thread of acidity slicing through an attractive, slightly honeyed, generous finish that is nicely focused. I might be tempted to drink this earlier than the other crus, but it will still give a lot of pleasure.

From Monterey and Santa Barbara vineyards, the fruit is fermented in stainless steel to preserve freshness, then aged in neutral, air-dried French oak to add an element of texture.

The rich body and texture builds as it envelops your mouth, while layers of Kaffir lime, guava, and pineapple tantalize; followed by light, creamy texture of whipped lemon curd. The lingering finish is clean and crisp, preparing your palate for more."

We were so happy with the 2013 Kalinda Napa Cabernet that we went back to the same well for the 2014. From another exceptional year for Napa Cabernet, this wine is lush and quite rich with tons of cassis on the nose and palate. Still quite young and showing some rounded tannins, I would cellar this beauty for five years minimum, but if you must drink it, decant one hour at least and serve with a hearty meat course.
