2012 Haut-Monplaisir "Tradition" Cahors New!
2012 Haut-Monplaisir "Tradition" Cahors

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe, almost sweet, fruit is full of delicious black plum and berry flavors. The wine is rounded, opulent and generous to a fault. A solid core of darker tannins hold all this richness together. Drink from 2015." (3/2015) K&L Notes: These days, when you think of Malbec you often think of Argentina. But Southwestern France's Cahors appellation is the ancestral home of this black grape, situated in the high country (Haut Pays), equidistant from the Atlantic, the Pyrenees, and the Mediterranean. It is drier than Bordeaux or the Languedoc in fall and distinguished by its... Read More »

2012 Byron Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2012 Byron Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Berry fruit leather, raspberry iced tea and dark spices weave together on the intriguing nose of this wine, which is as good if not better than similar wines from the appellation charging twice the price. Roasted figs and black cardamom rise on the palate, yet the wine remains light on its feet." (12/2014)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Kicking off the Pinot Noirs and coming all from sandy soils, the 2012 Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley is another rocking value from this estate.

2013 Domaine Dupré Regnié "Haute Ronze"

Fleshy and broad in the mouth, with juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors gaining sweetness with air. Rich yet lively Beaujolais with excellent finishing clarity and cling and smooth tannins that come in late. (JR)" (2/2015) K&L Notes: This comes from 75-year-old vines on the Haute Ronze hill at 320 meters of elevation in sandy and granitic soils, with favorable south and south-east exposures.

2010 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino New!
2010 Casanova di Neri "Tenuta Nuova" Brunello di Montalcino

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is a protagonist of the vintage. The fruit is deep and dark with rich levels of extract, intensity and flavor. It goes far beyond your standard cherry and blackberry to include plum cake, spice bread and bacon-wrapped prune. Nothing is obvious or monochromatic about this wine. Everything is nuanced and ethereal. Tenuta Nuova is also distinguished by the linear mineral notes that are characteristic of this single-vineyard site. In 2010, those traits are especially well-defined and pronounced. The tannins reach ...Read More »

2012 Domaine Blain-Gagnard Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru "Caillerets"

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Caillerets has a precise, mineral-driven, slightly fume bouquet that unfolds in the glass to great effect. The palate has a gras entry loaded with spicy citrus fruit that crescendo towards an impressive, vibrant finish that leaves touches of walnut and litchi on the long finish. This is very impressive. (NM)" (12/2013) Jancis Robinson: "More flinty and smoky than their Puligny-Montrachet, perhaps counter-intuitively. Lovely leesy texture and good density. Good length too. (RH)" (1/2014)

2011 Quinta do Roriz "Prazo de Roriz" Douro

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Sometimes less is more. This is the least ambitious wine in the Prats & Symington stable and, in 2011, it’s the most beautifully Portuguese. It starts out with spice, a slightly muddled schist scent that clarifies with air. Underneath, the wine is lithe, its flavors muscular and powerful without showing any excess alcohol, its dark and supple fruit drawing juice from the schist tannins. Buy it by the case to drink over the next several years."

The cherry, raspberry, licorice, earth and tobacco flavors meld with the solid structure. Offers fine length and complexity that increases with aeration. Best from 2014 through 2025."

2011 Ousterhout "Nance's Vineyard" Alexander Valley Zinfandel

95 points Wine & Spirits: "The vines that grew this supremely elegant wine were planted in 1999 on the red volcanic loam of a hillside and benchland vineyard in the southeast corner of Alexander Valley. Douglas and Nancy Ousterhout purchased the vineyard in 2009 and hired a pinot noir winemaker, Micah Wirth of Joseph Jewel, to create this silky, delicate zin. It’s as bright as a red cherry fresh off the tree, feeling almost weightless on the palate. As the wine takes on air, the tannins provide an edgy minerality that focuses and amplifies the fruit into a sunny, ruby-red laser be ...Read More »

Superlong finish. Best from 2008 through 2018." (3/2007)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Vouvray Demi-Sec Clos du Bourg offers fresh orange, quince, and grapefruit zest on the nose, a fine, bitter-sweet inner-mouth florality, and concentration of quince, honey, toasted almond, and citrus, with strongly chalky, stony mineral underpinnings.

The palate boasts notes of strawberry juice, red berries and hibiscus. It’s luxurious and sexy." (7/2015)91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Among the richer of the new Loring bottlings and one that very much hews to the riper, slightly juicy, cherry-like fruit that its site predicts, this very well-focused Pinot is full, fleshy and generous without going too far. It hints at velvet on entry and follows with a good sense of struc ...Read More »

(RP)" (12/2005)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "For many wineries, this would be their top Pinot. For Rochioli, it’s their basic bottling.

Giving up plenty of creme de cassis, licorice, crushed rock and subtle vanilla nuances, it’s full-bodied and incredibly polished on the palate, with ultra-fine tannin structure and gorgeous concentration that never seems cumbersome or heavy. Made from 100% Syrah and coming all from sandy soils, it’s blockbuster stuff that will have 10-15 years of longevity." (6/2014)

A warm, resonant bouquet laced with espresso, plums and spices meld into expressive dark berries as this mid-weight, polished Cabernet opens up in the glass. Hints of raspberry jam, rose petals and mocha are layered into the persistent finish. Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is rarely inexpensive, but this is about as good as it gets for the money.

One of the best young entry-level teroldegos in memory from Foradori."

The tannins are evident in the astringency, but they’re so finely ground that you could drink this wine now. Made mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a drop of Syrah, giving it rich, elaborate flavors of black currant, bacon and sweet cedar.

This hearty, full-bodied Riserva is long on personality and sheer character. There isn’t a ton of subtlety, but readers looking for a hearty, robust Chianti will find much to like.

An unusually viscous, oily Chardonnay for the vintage, the 2011 should drink well early, yet it also has more than enough body, volume and texture to age well for at least a few years.

Layers of sweet red fruit, flowers and spices blossom effortlessly from the 2008 Fontalloro. The intensely saline finish that is present in the Rancia is found in Fontalloro as well.

93 points Antonio Galloni: "Next to the 1997, the 1998 Opus One is naturally a bit slender, but it, too, boasts striking balance. Savory herbs, mint, licorice and plums are woven together in a fabric of notable class. Still young and vibrant, the 1998 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next decade. The focus, length and persistence are all super-impressive, especially within the context of a challenging vintage. The 1998 is 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 1% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot." (6/2013) Wine Spectator: "Elegant, polished, supple and complex, with prett ...Read More »

2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape New!
2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beaucastel’s 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape has turned out even better out of bottle than I predicted. An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious nose of blue and black fruits, truffles, pen ink, licorice, and meat juices as well as glorious levels of acidity and sweet tannin, buttressing the fruit’s fabulous freshness and vibrancy. This full-bodied effort still displays considerable tannin, no doubt because of the relatively high Mourvedre content. It should resolve its tannins in 2-4 years, and last for 25 or more."

1995 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac Back In Stock!
1995 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

93 points James Suckling: "This is surprisingly delicate and fine now with currant and spice character and hints nuts. It is full body with refined texture and a beautiful finish." (1/2014)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stylish, elegant, more restrained style of Pichon Baron, with less obvious new oak than usual, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine offers a pure black currant-scented nose with subtle aromas of coffee and smoky toasty oak. In the mouth, the wine displays less weight and muscle than the 1996, but it offers suave, elegant, rich fruit presented in a medium to full-bodied, surprisingly lush style. ...Read More »

1997 Mount Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Estate Cabernet Sauvignon New!
1997 Mount Eden Santa Cruz Mountains Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

89-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red-ruby color. Bright, fruity berry nose. Juicy and fairly intense; shows moderate baby fat and concentration today but this is stylish and nicely delineated. The tannins are firm but quite suave. Will make a lovely bottle." (6/1999) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby/purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is dense and closed, with abundant black currant fruit, a strong sense of minerality, firm tannin, and earthy notes in the background. Medium-bodied and slightly austere, but well-made, it will drink well between 2003-2014." (6/2000) K&L Notes: Always a huge favorite at K&... Read More »

(1/2011)95 points Wine Spectator: "Displays complex aromas of blackberry and cherry, with a hint of licorice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a delicious finish of wonderful yet subtle fruit. Well-integrated and beautiful. Everything is in the right place. Best after 2011." (1/2009)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply beautiful.

1999 Hess Collection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon New!
1999 Hess Collection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smells ripe and oaky, with tons of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. Almost sweet in the mouth with rich oak and ripe fruit, but quite dry, with firm tannins that turn almond-skin bitter on the finish." (11/2003)89 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, earthy and complex, with tightly wound blackberry, earth, cedar and tarry flavors. It's well-balanced and manages to tame the austere flavors to some extent. Needs cellaring and may always be on the chewy, rustic side." (6/2003) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Nuanced nose combines blackcurrant, blackberry, licorice, mint, rose petal and baking spices. Jui ...Read More »

93 points Wine Spectator: "Shows sweet raspberry and vanilla aromas, with hints of cream. Full-bodied and packed with ripe fruit and new wood, this is starting to come together now. A jammy, fruit-forward wine. (Web-2010)"92 points Antonio Galloni: "The estate's 1999 Brunello di Montalcino is a touch more slender than I would have expected in this vintage. Gorgeous aromas meld into spiced dark fruit, spices, leather and menthol in a pretty style of Sangiovese. (AG)" (11/2008)91 points James Suckling: "Very spicy and decadent on the nose with a touch of cigar box on the nose. Full bodied with slightly angular tannins and a bit hard. ...Read More »

2010 Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2010 Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Wine & Spirits: "This is blended from Flowers’s far-coast, estate-grown fruit (39 percent) and selections from growers in the western reaches of Sonoma Coast; there’s also a portion from Gaps Crown, a notably ocean-influenced vineyard east of Highway 101. This wine stands apart for its clear focus, a clean presentation of Sonoma’s far coast. The primary fruit is a frame for the soil character, a resinous scent, rooty but more elegant than that might imply. Jonathan Waters of Chez Panisse said, 'It tastes like old-school California,' an honest, unpretentious wine the grow ...Read More »

2005 Newton "Unfiltered" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even longer-lived than the Merlot, are the 4,000 or so cases of 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Unfiltered. What people don’t realize is that proprietress Su Hua Newton completely declassified the 2003 and 2004 vintages, as she just wasn’t happy with them. This is her first vintage since 2002. The wine is deep ruby/purple in color and exhibits notes of underbrush, black truffle, creme de cassis, incense, and a hint of earth. It is full-bodied, powerful, but at the same time elegant, pure, and moderately tannic. Thi... Read More »

2008 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Shows the soft, mellow feeling a fine Merlot should possess, although it's certainly tannic enough, in the Duckhorn style. However, the tannins are intricate and accessible, and frame lush cherry, red currant, licorice and cinnamon spice flavors. Hard to resist now, and should hold over the next four years." (12/2011)91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "** Two Stars ** If at first a little tight in the nose and only grudgingly allowing a bit of sweet oak, cherries and herbs to peek out, this well-endowed wine is not at all restrained in its broad and decidedly juicy flavors of very well-ripe ...Read More »

Shows fine acidity and even a dusting of tannins that provide structural integrity. Really nice now, and should develop over the next 4-6 years." (08/10) According to Wine Spectator: "Complex, loamy earth and berry scents are full-bodied, offering hints of ripe plum and black cherry, with touches of spice and cedar. Smoky oak marks the aftertaste. Drink now through 2015. " (08/10)... Read More »

2007 Justin "Isosceles" Paso Robles Red Blend

Lively aromas of red and dark berry preserves, with subtle floral and oak spice notes adding complexity. Juicy, gently sweet cherry and blackberry flavors show very good depth, picking up mocha and anise qualities with air. Late-arriving tannins are quickly absorbed by the densely packed, sweet fruit. This is a youngster."

1990 Palmer, Margaux

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This was the finest bottle of the 1990 Palmer I have yet tasted, and it appears I slightly underrated it in earlier reviews. A complex bouquet of earth, blue and black fruits, licorice, incense, and spice box is followed by a round, silky, voluptuous wine that falls just short of achieving the depth and richness found in such recent vintages as 2000, 2005, 2006, and 2008. A very strong, fully mature effort, its balance, purity, depth, and texture suggest it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 10-12 years. (RP)" (6/2009)92 points Wine Spectator: "A beauty.
