2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

100 points James Suckling: "Disgorged October 2016 and will be the first Cristal to be released ten years from harvest when it is offered in 2018. 35 parcels used from a possible 45 in this vintage. The assemblage is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. This is so fresh and tense and mineral with extremely exuberant chardonnay notes on the nose of white peach, lemon and yellow grapefruit, and hints of almost brambly sous bois aromas. The yeast characters are also super fresh, and there are subtle woody notes, with a hint of vanilla bean and light spices. The palate is super long, and ...Read More »

2006 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2006 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Reserva Rioja

Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungent fruit as well as a real spicy and wild quality. As with many of the best Riojas, this wine is quite delicious right now if you want to drink some bottles wh... Read More »

1988 Joël Taluau "Vieilles Vignes" Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil

Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, unmarred by the intrusion of oak--- which he hasn't used in production since 1986. He was also the first producer in the appellation to begin domaine bottling. The Vieilles Vignes, from a single plot of Cabernet Franc planted in 1934, is prized for its power, depth and grace. This flagship wine is meant to age, and the large format bottle will have helped to preserve freshness.

94 points James Suckling: "Attractive red berries, nectarines and biscuity notes with a hint of spice, too, and a sweet-smelling freshness to it. The palate delivers a very attractive and concentrated array of yellow stone fruit flavors. Smooth and creamy, sorbet-like finish. Drink now or age." (10/2017) 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A fresh, bright and overtly citrusy nose reflects plenty of yeast and floral characters. There is really lovely vibrancy to the refined and ultra-pure flavors where the supporting effervescence is equally fine. The lingering and well-balanced finish is drier than the reported dosage ...Read More »

2004 Krug Brut Champagne

97 points Decanter: "This is the current and latest vintage release from Krug, and is a fitting successor to 2002, though it's very different in style - unusually, the blend contains more Chardonnay than Pinot Noir. Despite this, it is hallmark Krug with its oxidative profile. It has a luminous freshness and good density without heaviness. There’s a controlled power to this poised, vinous, linear 2004, displaying candied fruits, minerals, gingerbread, white chocolate, caramel and marzipan. This has a long, dry autolytic finish, great balance and lovely bead. Disgorged just a ...Read More »

1990 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan Top Pick!
1990 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

93 points Wine Spectator: "Serious wine. Dark ruby color, with blackberry, earth and truffle character. Full-bodied and very polished, with fine tannins and a long, rich, fruity finish. I underrated this years ago. (JS)" (8/2000) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The complex 1990 offers up subtle yet persistent aromas of red currants, tobacco leaf, spice box, and smoke. This medium-bodied, fully mature wine exhibits sweetness as well as lushness, and is capable of lasting another decade. (RP)" (6/2009) Jancis Robinson: "Much fresher than many 1990s with polish and a minerally edge. Racy and very fresh. Refined. A really good 1990! Long ...Read More »

2005 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of mineral, blackberry and licorice lead to a full body, with lots of racy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. There's plenty of character, with a polished, refined style, yet tannic. Best after 2011. (JS)" (3/2008) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Scattered notes of stony spice and tobacco join with fairly solid young curranty fruit in both the aromas and flavors of this full-scaled and well-extracted young Graves, and it delivers a little more volume and depth than we would expect at the price. It is long on tannic grip at the moment and is thus one meant for the cellar, and we ...Read More »

2007 Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2007 Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Check this out if you enjoyed the classic vintages of Gruaud-Larose: This is funky and complex, with the same kind of fat that St-Julien would boast." (10/2011) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich and vibrant in acids and tannins, this Cabernet feels like it was obviously grown in a good place. It flatters the palate with blackberry and black cherry flavors, with a currant ripeness accentuated by 80% new French oak. Forward and elaborate now, it doesn’t seem like an ager despite the tannins, so drink now–2013." (7/2011) K&L Notes: The Spring Mountain Vineyard Cab has the unmistakable imprint of moun...

2008 La Rioja Alta "Viña Arana" Reserva Rioja (375ml)

This is a tough to find bottling from La Rioja Alta. It consists of more tempranillo than Ardanza, and is a bit more tensely structured. Still wonderfully classic, though, with lovely berry fruit, some subtle toasty/earthy notes, and a bit of a more serious personality than the delicious, extroverted 2001 Ardanza Reserva Especial also in our stock. This wine will surely age well for another decade or more. Arana, it is worth noting, is also a favorite amongst many of the crew over at La Rioja Alta.

2013 Blue Farm "Laceroni Vineyard" Russian River Chardonnay (Previously $40)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is the product of farming by Anne Moller-Racke and winemaking by Kenneth Juhasz, the original team behind Donum Estate in Carneros. Here, they've created a gorgeous, elegant expression of lemon zest and pear that harmonizes with stony minerality and brash, bristling acidity that becomes succulent on the palate. Atop it all is a scent of fresh-cut white flowers. (VB)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay Laceroni Vineyard reveals loads of lemon oil, tropical citrus, subtle oak, medium to full body and great acidity and depth.

2013 Melville "Estate - Verna's" Santa Barbara County Chardonnay

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The last vintage that the Melvilles are pulling from this Los Alamos Valley vineyard, this wine shows a complex nose of lemon candy, dill and fresh oregano. There is plenty of tension and grip on the palate, thanks to the lime-pith flavors, but a show of white flowers like tuberose keeps it properly ripe." 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay Estate Verna's Vineyard is another outstanding release of this cuvee that represents a terrific value. Giving up classic apple tart, melon, spice and a touch of honey, it's medium to full-bodied, rounded and nicely textured, with lots ...Read More »

2008 Delamotte Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

93 points Vinous: "The 2008 Delamotte is a deep, resonant Champagne endowed with stunning lays of depth. In 2008 Delamotte has all of the kaleidoscopic, multi-dimensional personality of the vintage, but the full malolactic fermentation softens some of the natural angularity of the year. Pastry, vanillin, baked apple, dried flowers and chamomile are all beautifully sculpted in the glass. This is one of the most accessible young 2008 Champagnes readers will come across, but there is real staying power and more than enough depth to support many years of fine drinking.

2013 Latour-Martillac Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

95 points James Suckling: "So much licorice and fennel seed on the nose with lemon and dried pear undertones. Full body, bright acidity and lots of stone, apple skin and citrus undertones. A solid and serious dry white that will deliver pleasure now but will improve for many years ahead." (2/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is all herbal fruits, with spice from the wood-aging and lively acidity. It has considerable potential, full of its nervy texture, minerality and tight acidity. Wait at least into 2020. Tristan and Loïc Kressmann now run the family estate. (RV)" (3/2016) 89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright straw yellow. Sauvi ...Read More »
