2010 Haut Charmes, Sauternes (375 ml) Top Pick!
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. A stunning wine just like its big broth... Read More »

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. But the truth remains that very few can, or are willing to make t... Read More »

Lustau Almacenista Oloroso "Pata de Gallina" (500ml)

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Juan García Jarana, the motorcycle magnate of Jerez, sells a portion of his soleras to Lustau for this delicate Oloroso. It starts with notes of candied almonds, coconut palm syrup and caramel. The hint of salinity lends complexity and freshness, without diminishing that delicate, pleasing sweetness."

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 »

2012 Taylor Fladgate "Vargella Single Quinta" Vintage Port

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Quinta de Vargellas Port, a typical Douro blend, was aged in large French oak vats for 24 months and bottled in 2014. It comes in at 103 grams per liter of residual sugar. This opens steely and gripping, with fine acidity, firmness on the finish and enough concentration in this lighter-styled vintage. The best of the trio submitted by Taylor Fladgate this issue, it does everything well and mostly exceeds expectations. It more or less combines a bit of the initial power displayed by the Fonseca and the expressiveness of the Croft, and adds silky ...Read More »

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.

2013 Samos "Vin Doux" Muscat (500ml)

The signature sweet Muscat dessert wine from this cooperative on the Aegean island of Samos, one of Greece's original co-ops and a top producer of the island's famous Muscat. Samos boasts an extremely steep terrain, which means many of the vineyards here, especially those at high elevation, are planted on pezoules, or terraces. The trouble this provides in terms of necessitating hand harvesting is more than made up for by the wine's quality and immensely pleasurable taste. This dessert wine is fortified to 15% alc.

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.

Good complexity and concentration with a fresh finish. An impressive value in sweet wine! (Ralph Sands, K&L Bordeaux Expert)

The portfolio of under $25 a bottle selections represents remarkable value for their complex, well-made personalities.

These Solera Reservas are all great reference points at a low price point from Lustau." (8/2012)90 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 20 ...Read More »

2011 Dow's Vintage Port Top Pick!
2011 Dow's Vintage Port

99 points Wine Spectator: "*Wine of the Year 2014, Highly Recommended, Collectibles* Powerful, refined and luscious, with a surplus of dark plum, kirsch and cassis flavors that are unctuous and long. Shows plenty of grip, presenting a long, full finish, filled with Asian spice and raspberry tart accents. Rich and chocolaty. One for the ages. Best from 2030 through 2060." (2/2014) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Dow Vintage Port was made from no less than 44 separate ferments from finest fruit sourced from Quinta do Bomfim (35% of the blend), Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira (42%) and the Santinho (14%) and C ...Read More »

Graham's 40 Year Old Tawny Port

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "An old, mature wine, but one that has kept its ripeness and richness. The concentration is so intense that one glass is almost enough (except it tastes so good). There are walnuts, bitter chocolate and a delicious clean aftertaste." (8/2006)93 points Wine Spectator: "A savory style, fresh-tasting despite its age, with a concentrated array of dried apricot, pear, lavender and sage flavors supported by vibrant acidity. This is very citrusy, presenting a long, refined finish filled with mineral and allspice details. (Web Only—2013)"92 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given."

Quinta do Tedo Tawny Port

Jancis Robinson: "Still relatively pink. Sweet toffeed fruit on the nose. Rich and full in the mouth. Easy but quite dense and concentrated for a tawny. Quite a distinct style." (11/2008) K&L Notes: Quinta do Tedo is a single quinta Port house owned by Vincent Bouchard (you may have heard of Bouchard Pere et Fils as well as Domaine William Fevre, both owned by his relatives). Vincent, however, chose to strike out on his own many years ago, first by working for a cooperage and then by seeking out a property where he could produce delicious wine as organically as possible. He found his... Read More »

2014 Rieussec, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This has a phenomenal finish. It’s dense yet agile with dried tropical fruits and spices. Honey, too. Yet so intense and powerful. It really lasts for minutes. Medium sweet yet so fruity and energetic. This shows how you can have ripeness with fruit and then lots of botrytis. Exciting wine." (3/2015) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Rieussec 2014 is a blend of 93% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle, picked from 15 to 29 October through seven tries, the yield half the normal crop at 13 hectoliters per hectare. Charles Chevalier, how lest we forget started here and n ...Read More »

2012 Luigi Giusti "Visciola" (500ml)

Luigi Giusti's Visciola is made in a centuries-old Marche tradition of making dessert wine with cherries. The production is actually quite complicated, as two varieties of cherries are processed separately with half of them being dried in the sun for 40 days. Grape wine from the current vintage is used as a base wine, but the fermented cherries are not pressed. Rather, a ripasso process is employed with some wine from the previous vintage. Sour cherries are then also utilized with residual sweetness retained. The resulting dessert wine has a potent sour ... Read More »

2012 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smoky, floral aromas are immediately enticing. They follow through to a wine that is rich and dry rather than obviously sweet. It has great swathes of botrytis and acidity, accompanied by yellow fruits and ripe citrus. Drink this structured wine from 2020." (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 »

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

94-97 points Wine Spectator: "A juicy, engaging core of apricot, nectarine and green fig is backed by ginger and spiced apple accents. Orange zest notes enliven the finish even more. Shows solid length, power and precision." (3/2015) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Guiraud 2014 has a perfumed bouquet with clear honey, beeswax and honeysuckle aromas that are well defined. The palate is fresh and taut on the entry: good tension and focus here, very harmonious with a gently build in the mouth towards a satisfying marmalade and quince-driven finish. This is a finely crafted Guiraud that will be a class act. ( ...Read More »

2014 Joseph Phelps "Eisrébe" Napa Valley Late Harvest Scheurebe (375ml)

Grown on their Home Ranch Vineyard in St. Helena, Joseph Phelps makes Eisrébe as a nod to German ice wines. From 100% Scheurebe (shoy-RAY-buh) grapes, the Napa Valley latitude does not allow for natural freezing on the vines as in Germany. Rather the late-harvested grapes are lightly frozen in the winery before being gently pressed to extract only the most concentrated nectar while leaving much of the water behind. The finished dessert wine sports 8% alcohol and 22.5% residual sugar. From the winery: "The 2014 Eisrébe is delicately nuanced with crisp app... Read More »

Fonseca "Bin 27" Port

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lucid dark ruby color, the Bin 27 has a sweet nose of raisin and fig, complemented by copious dark cherry and black plum. The palate is sweet and spicy on the entry with that fig motif continuing with plush dark chocolate infused black fruit. The finish is short and abrupt, but there is a lingering peppery note to keep customer satisfied. The Bin 27 forms a perfect introduction to the delights of Port. (NM)" (2/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "Full, rich and fruity wine, enticingly aromatic, with strawberry fruits and an easy, just tannic edge. The wine is soft, ripe, the fruits fin ...Read More »
