This central coast rosé wine is predominately Syrah with 65% of the blend. Similar to a classic Rhône-style rosé the Syrah juice soaks with the skins for a few hours before a gentle pressing in order to extract color for just the right pink hue.

Of the 2005 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac,James Suckling writes: "A fabulous GPL. Perhaps better than the legendary 1982? It shows laser-guide precision on the palate with aromas of currants, cedar, mint, flowers and chocolate. Full-bodied and extremely finely textured on the palate, lasting for minutes. A joy to drink now. Get some." (11/2015)

2010 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac

95 points James Suckling: "Intense hazelnuts and blackberries on the nose follow through to a full to medium body, with chocolate and berry flavors and firm tannins. Not giving away a lot at the finish at the moment. Reserved and sophisticated. But structured and chewy." (2/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolutely magnificent wine from this very popular estate, which sits well off the Route du Vin, just to the southwest of the town of Pauillac, its classic creme de cassis and floral notes are well-displayed. The wine possesses supple tannin, a full body, voluptuous character and a layered, impressively ...Read More »

2015 TWR (Te Whare Ra) SV5182 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

95 points Sam Kim: "A magnificent rendition of the variety; home-grown, low-cropped grapes were hand picked and hand sorted, and fermented predominantly in large seasoned oak vats, then matured on fine lees. The wine is subtle yet persistent, elegant yet powerful, exhibiting engaging aromas of white stone fruit, lemon peel, sweet basil, hay and a hint of oatmeal on the nose. The palate is concentrated and focused, and offers layers of fine texture and silky mouthfeel, brilliantly framed by seamlessly integrated acidity, leading to an extremely long, sustained finish. This i ...Read More »

2014 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay Top Pick!
2014 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay Estate from Mount Eden is terrific, offering up a youthful bouquet of buttered apples, pear, toasted nuts and brioche that reveals more and more nuance as it sits in the glass. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, pure and racy, with a satiny attack, deep core and bright acids. The finish is long and mouthwateringly chalky. This is one of the best recent releases of the Estate Chardonnay, and it comes warmly recommended." 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Chardonnay Estate comes from 43% of the average yields (it was a tiny crop due to the drought) and was b ...Read More »

Bordiga Occitan Italian Gin (1L)

Gin was first made by Bordiga in 1889, and this gin is made from the original Bordiga recipe. Only four main botanical flavors are used, some from the Occitan Alps, hence the name. The four are angelica, juniper, cardamom and a secret ingredient (with traces of orange and lemon peel). Occitan Gin has traditionally been made exclusively from juniper that grows wild (not cultivated) in the Maritime Alps, near Cuneo, which are some of the highest mountains in Europe. This combination of altitude and maritime influence enriches the essential oils of the juni... Read More »

Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (375ml)

93 points James Suckling: "This Champagne has a strong following and it's easy to see why with the attractive ripe chardonnay fruits delivering white and yellow peach, mango, nectarine and lemon cream aromas and flavors. Smooth, sorbet-like palate." (10/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Light yellow-gold. Smoky citrus and orchard fruits on the deeply perfumed, mineral-tinged nose. Offers broad, toasty orange and pear skin flavors with an undercurrent of dusty minerals. Picks up floral and ginger nuances with air, along with hints of iodine and tarragon. Rich yet lively blanc de blancs with powerful back-end li ...Read More »

2014 Acumen "Mountainside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winery Notes: "This full-bodied wine opens with aromas of violets, lavender, fresh rosemary, and espresso. On the palate we find flavors of black cherries, red plums, mountain blueberries, mission figs, and chocolate covered orange peel with sweet clay, freshly turned earth, and pencil shavings giving way to ripe, mouth-coating tannins on the long and powerful finish. An elegant and well-balanced combination of fruit, tannic structure, and acidity, this is our finest Mountainside Cabernet Sauvignon to date."

Drappier "Carte d'Or" Brut Champagne

91 points Wine Spectator: "This balanced version is firm and lightly toasty, with a tightly knit mix of ripe plum, blanched almond and orange liqueur flavors. Ample ground spice and pink grapefruit zest notes show on the vivacious finish. (AN)" (10/2016) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This well-balanced nonvintage Champagne from this major producer in the Aube region is dominated by Pinot Noir, giving rich character and structure. Red apple and ripe melon flavors mean everything is in place, making for a wine that is deliciously ready to drink.

2013 K Vintners (Charles Smith) "King Coal - Stoneridge Vineyard" Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah (Elsewhere $100)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon King Coal Stoneridge Vineyard, which is always a 70/30 mix of Cabernet and Syrah, is a beauty. Giving up lots of black currants, smoked earth, olive and background meatiness, it’s rich, voluptuously textured and concentrated, with tons to love. It’s approachable now due to all the fruit, but this puppy will cruise in the cellar over the coming couple of decades. These latest releases from Charles Smith check in at the top of the pyramid and are flat out incredible wines that I wish every reader could taste.

2017 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Certainly a fine wine, this has ripe tannins that are balanced by the fine, black fruits. With its smoky and black currant character, it has the structure for aging, as well as the attractive fruitiness of the vintage. (RV)" (4/2018) 95-96 points James Suckling: "This is a really fascinating young Pichon Lalande with a dense center palate of currants, crushed stones, salt and seashells. Really long and intense. Wonderful energy. Showing character of some of the top years of the 1980s." (4/2018) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This barrel sample is 100% new oak, whereas the final blend will be only 60% new oak. A blend ...Read More »

2016 Clementine Carter "Kimsey Vineyard" Ballard Canyon Grenache

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Kimsey Vineyard Grenache wafts from the glass with a lovely nose of raspberry, cherries, spice, rose petal and orange rind. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied with an ample core of ripe fruit that avoids any confectionery excess, good depth and concentration and a long, chewy finish that will need a little time to soften. This is an impressively fragrant, characterful Grenache. 93+ (WK)" (4/2018) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "A dear winemaking friend of mine whom I respect immensely suggested I work with Kimsey vineyard.
