2014 Coutet, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Aromatic with the a note of wildflower honey, the palate brings white fruit flavors and rich botrytis power. The midpalate is densely concentrated with fruit tones, yet lightened by a vein of acidity." (4/2015) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "Plump at first, with a praline note around the heather, pineapple and nectarine flavors. Stretches out, with a juicy feel, while orange blossom and white peach accents fill in, imparting lift and cut. This packs a bit of power, but there’s lots of buried freshness as well. The finish is seriously long already." (4/2015) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Cout ...Read More »

2005 Coutet, Sauternes (375ml) (Elsewhere $35)

Certainly a long-aging wine." (6/2008)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "92+ points.

Cool, pungent nose offers hints of orange, marzipan, sexy brown spices, parsley, grass and eucalpytus. Sweet, thick and powerful but with its fat fruit flavors cut by strong acidity.

2010 Haut Charmes, Sauternes (375 ml)

Haut Charmes is a very special Sauternes bottling, made from the younger vines of the region's most legendary château. While we aren't allowed to actually reveal the source, it's safe to say its location in the Ciron Valley exposes the Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon fruit to conditions perfect for the development of botrytis. Charming, elegant and an exceptional value for what's in the bottle. A rich wine with fine acidity, the 2010 has wonderful pineapple and coconut aromas that carry through onto the lush palate.

2014 Saracco Moscato d'Asti

This 2014 release is too new to have already been professionally reviewed, but the 2013 bottling garnered 90 points from Antonio Galloni. In the context of another previous vintage, Galloni writes: ""Paolo Saracco remains the reference point producer for Moscato d’Asti, with perhaps one or two close peers, and that is it. I have seen Saracco’s vineyards, and they are great sites, but they aren’t the only top Moscato vineyards, so I am perplexed why no one else can make wines at this level.

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.

It has a richer bouquet compared to the 2010 with exuberant, explosive scents of acacia honey, dried apricot and a hint of petrol that transposes the exoticism of the vintage.

A combination of late harvest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc from the foggy town of Coombsville, east of Napa, Dolce is Napa's ultimate Sauternes-style dessert wine, with its earthy, botrytis underpinning and joyful acidity.

Ramos Pinto White Port

White port is one of the world's most civilized aperitifs, and we here at K&L think that the Ramos Pinto is one of the best. Made from Malvasia Fina and Codega grapes (mostly grown on the Ramos Pinto estate) that are picked quite ripe, this wine is then aged for three years in traditional port barrels called "pipes." Full-bodied and exotic, it is incomparable on the rocks with an orange twist. Since it has had extended barrel age and is fortified, it is no problem to have keep it in the refrigerator for a month after opening it, but I doubt it will last ... Read More »

(5/2015)91 points Wine Spectator: "An unctuous style, with toasted almond and hazelnut notes coating the core of glazed peach, warm piecrust and creamed yellow apple. Shows a fresh lemon meringue edge on the finish, though that should give way to a more tropical and toasty side as this ages. Drink now through 2027." (3/2015)90 points James Suckling: "Very ...Read More »

1965 Taylor Fladgate "Very Old Single Harvest" Tawny Port

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1965 Very Old Single Harvest Port, that is, a Coheita, single vintage tawny, is part of Taylor's continuing series of releases of old Colheitas. A field blend of typical grapes, it comes in at 157 grams per liter of residual sugar. In the overall context of amazing old Colheitas, it may not take 1st prize, but it will strike anyone who loves them as pretty fine. Get ready for those aromatics that are powerful from several feet away. Irresistible on opening, it has an up-front rush of sugar, concentrated aromatics and remarkable concentration of flavo ...Read More »

2014 F-Series (Framingham) "Trockenbeerenauslese" Riesling Marlborough (375ml)

98 points Bob Campbell: "100% botrytis, bunch selection. Very intense, luscious, syrupy but not cloying dessert wine. Honey, peach, root ginger, dried tree fruits with Xmas cake like concentration. So concentrated you can find just about any flavour that springs to mind. Great wine. Only 400 bottles made." (11/2014)98 points Raymond Chan: "Hand-picked fruit, 100% botrytis affected berries at net 43.3° Brix, fermented in 50 L stainless kegs to 9.5% alc. and 295 g/L RS. Brilliant, light golden yellow colour with some depth, lighter on rim. The nose is full, concentrated and voluminous with opulent aromas o ...Read More »

Lustau East India Solera

92 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a selection from botas of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez raised separately and then blended to age for three years in solera. The result puts the sweetness of the PX in front, with flavors of plum jam and tobacco. The salinity of the Oloroso brings freshness and fine minerality that play softly in the background." (6/2011)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This traditional wine from Lustau is made in the Cream style. It’s dark and pretty, with PX-ish prune and caramel aromas. It’s not as thick as Pedro Ximénez, and thus isn’t syrupy. But it’s certainly rich and full of cookie, molasses, ...Read More »

1982 Suduiraut, Sauternes

4 stars Michael Broadbent (Nov 1992): "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 vintage because Suduiraut makes better wines when they pick early in the season.

2012 l'Avocat, Cérons (Graves/Sweet) (500ml)

Ch. L’Avocat’s vineyard location, just a few hundred yards from the Garonne River are in a perfect spot for their grapes to catch the morning mist that will infect the grapes and allow “boytrytis” to flourish, creating a lush wine of great sweetness. The bouquet is of citrus, apricot and pineapple fruit; on the palate it has the hallmark quality of lively acidity with fruit flavors of marmalade, pineapple and lemons. Good complexity and concentration with a fresh finish. An impressive value in sweet wine! (Ralph Sands, K&L Bordeaux Expert)

Alvear Pedro Ximenez "Solera 1927" Montilla Moriles (375ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 100 Wines of 2012* A rank well above most PX sweeties, with lush but fresh aromas of raisin and spice that are distinctly not syrupy or heavy. Feels thick, but there’s enough acidity to cut through the wine’s weight. Flavors of caramel and chocolate are ideal, and the finish is smooth, not heavy, and has bounce in its step. A beautiful PX any way you cut it." (4/2012)92 points Wine Spectator: "Menthol and prune aromas and flavors highlight this intense, sweet dessert wine. It exhibits plenty of brightness and complexity, ending with butterscotch and bitter chocolate notes. Nic ...Read More »

Cossart Gordon 5 Year Old Bual Madeira

Cossart Gordon, founded in 1759, is a Bual specialist, only bottling Madeiras from this noble grape variety known for producing slightly spicy and medium sweet styles of Madeira. This example shows lovely candied fruits and a rich buttery toffee quality, with refreshing acidity and even some saline notes as well. Great value.

2011 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port Top Pick!
2011 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port

98 points Wine Spectator: "An elegant style, full of well-spiced, juicy flavors of raspberry, boysenberry and blueberry that extend with lively acidity and well-integrated tannins. Unctuous and succulent on the finish, which oozes with molten chocolate. Best after 2025." (10/2013)96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Red and black berries bring out the richness of the year, masking the seriously tannic structure. The wine has great spice, richness and a dark, smoky core of powerful tannins. For long-term aging, but delicious now." (10/2013)95 points James Suckling: "Aromas of flowers and berries with hints of dried fruits. Full body, medium sweet ...Read More »

Emilio Hidalgo "Morenita" Cream Jerez

91 points Wine Spectator: "This is bright for a cream Sherry, with green tea and singed ginger notes out front, providing heft to the date, raisin, caramel and charred bourbon barrel accents. The sleek finish lets the green tea edge reemerge, with well-embedded acidity for length. Drink now." (10/2013)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* Smooth and sweet, like a cream Sherry is supposed to be. On the nose, this one easily shifts from ripe apricot and peach fruit to nuts and saline. The palate starts with a blast of coffee and mocha and then folds in brown sugar and spice. Sweet, long and generous, with ac ...Read More »
