2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne Back In Stock!
2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

98 points John Gilman: "The 2008 vintage of Dom Pérignon is an absolute classic in the making and this is destined to be one of the great recent years for this iconic cuvée. It is far more classically structured out of the blocks than the relatively generous 2009 version, offering up a deep, complex and very youthful bouquet of menthol, green apple, a touch of tangerine, a very complex base of minerality and notes of dried flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with precise mousse, brisk aci ...Read More »

2015 Canon, St-Emilion 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "Seductive. The nose draws you in deep: It’s like staring into a well of pristine dark cherries, dark plums, blackberries and mulberries. All the oak is perfectly subsumed. The palate’s flawless with immense depth and power and it’s so balanced as to appear to float. Immaculate fresh dark-berry and plum flavors. Silky and deep, ribbon-like finish. Perfect. *2018 Wine of the Year* " (02/2018) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Canon was a benchmark wine that seemed to revitalize this historic estate. I was cro ...Read More »

2015 Wind Gap Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Elsewhere $36)

93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is a blend of six sites, all of them in the lower part of the Sonoma Coast in the Petaluma Wind Gap. The power of blending fruit across several sites gives the Sonoma Coast Pinot striking interplay between riper and more savory elements. The brightness and purity of the fruit is simply striking. Even better, the 2015 is a superb value. Fruit sources are Gaps Crown, Sunchase, Parliament Hill, Griffin's Lair, Bootlegger's Hill and Castelli.

Full-bodied and everything is in check and harmony with polished tannins that last for minutes. Purity and focus. Is it the greatest Solaia ever? So drinkable already, but this is a wine for ages ahead" (09/2018) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The very name Solaia evokes the concept of sunshine and this unique Tuscan wine archetype I am referring to.

2015 San Guido "Sassicaia" Bolgheri (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Decanter: "This is certainly an exceptional Sassicaia, with a sumptuous nose of ripe, creamy black and red fruit with cedar and spice notes. The colour is by no means dark (as is often the case with Sassicaia), and the impression on the palate is one of controlled power underpinned by gorgeous sweetness and flowing elegance. This is a very confident wine with real authority and presence, beginning with a magnificent attack of rich cassis and ripe griotte cherry followed by cigar box and leather notes, and a long finish of savoury bay leaf and m ...Read More »

Silky, sweet and incisive on the palate, offering juicy strawberry and floral pastille flavors and a spicy kick of white pepper. Closes very long and nervy; fine-grained tannins lend shape and closing grip.

This has a lighter stamp of highly curated, autolytic, toasty aromas than many recent releases. Instead, this delivers super fresh and intense aromas of lemons, grapefruit and blood-orange peel. Incredible freshness here. The palate has a very smoothly delivered, berry-pastry thread with light, sweet spices, stone fruit and fine citrus fruit. This really delivers. Drink now or hold."

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine from this brilliant estate is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which matches the otherworldly 2007. A classic blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah brought up all in old foudre, this beauty's deep purple color is followed by a mammoth bouquet of kirsch liqueur, black currants, blueberries, Asian spices, and garrigue.

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.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon 55% Slope comes from the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas Mountains. It is 100 % Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard planted at 1,700 feet. This is a remarkable wine and reminiscent of the great classics from the golden era of the Mayacamas on the Napa side (such as the 1968, 1970, 1973 and 1974) come to mind when tasting this beauty. It is simply loaded. Dense purple in color, the wine has notes of licorice, crème de cassis, Asian plum sauce, cedar wood and earth. Full-bodied, opulent and ...Read More »

Ardbeg 22 Year Old "Twenty Something" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
Ardbeg 22 Year Old "Twenty Something" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Ardbeg distillery has become the darling of the peated whisky world over the last two decade. Things seemed bleak for the distillery in the 1980s. The distillery was basically mothballed from 1981 until 1989. It was only for the strong will and dedication of a small group of dreamers that any whisky was distilled there between 1989 and 1997. That's the year that the distillery was purchased by Glenmorangie and begun the complex process of re-launching the line. By 1998 the distillery was running at full steam. Only a few years later and the Ardbeg cr ...Read More »

This has 30% of oak fermentation which has compressed the wine, lending it an air of extreme concentration. The nose is gently spicy, offering peaches and cherries as well as neat autolysis edge. The palate has a powerful, long and assertive feel, with peach and lemon pith, chalky minerals, and some grapefruit. A powerful vintage for Roederer.

2006 Craigellachie 12 Year Old "Sovereign" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Every year the biggest struggle we have when selecting casks isn't necessarily finding ultra-rare casks. If we're willing to pay for them, the diamonds are there. What's much more difficult to find are the affordable sherried malts from good distilleries. Last year we smashed things up with an absolutely stellar Aultmore. This year we've got a few replacements, one of them being this incredible cask of Craigellachie. While it doesn't have the inky, nearly bitter extraction that the Aultmore had, there might not be a better sherried whisky available for t ...Read More »

2016 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Decanter: "Nothing under 20 years old supplies fruit for the grand vin de Léoville. It's extremely dark and rich, a stately purple in colour with some violet around the rim. Right from the off it expands upwards and outwards, showing polished dark, dark fruits such as black cherry and cassis, alongside slate, liquorice and rosemary. It's mouthfilling and almost less austere than all of the others, yet it's a serious wine. The tannins close in on themselves at the end, showing how this is built to last.

Old Potrero has finally begun a formal single cask program and we were so excited we bought 2! Barrel #9 is a sophisticated well balanced number.

After one taste of this Linkwood it's immediately clear that this is one of the heart malts for the great Johnnie Walker Blends. It kind of reminds me of all the things I love about Johnnie Walker that aren't peaty. Johnnie Walker, in particularly the Johnnie Green, is actual ...Read More »

2016 Banshee Sonoma County Pinot Noir

Vinous: "Sweet red cherry, tobacco, mint, leather and spice give this mid-weight Pinot a good bit of nuance and complexity throughout. (AG)" (07/2018) K&L Notes: With every new release of Banshee we become more and more impressed with just how dedicated to quality these three young men, and the team around them, are.

2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Top Pick!
2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times since release, the 2009 Pontet Canet is one of those magical efforts that wine lovers encounter far too infrequently. From one of the greatest vintages for the region ever, this deep, saturated purple-colored effort offers an incredible bouquet of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, damp earth, and graphite. This gives way to a full-bodied, powerful Pauillac that carries a massive amount of sweet fruit yet stays light and beautifully balanced on the palate. Wi ...Read More »

1982 L'Encantada 35 Year Old "Del Cassou #187" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) Top Pick!
1982 L'Encantada 35 Year Old "Del Cassou #187" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)

Independent bottler L'Encantada understands what Armagnac lovers want because that's exactly what they are. This group of Armagnac loving friends realized that some of the region's small estates were throwing away legendary eau-de-vie to blends made by the big negociants. They offered those estates a premium to retain the stocks for bottling as single casks at full strength. Many of these estates had neither bottled Armagnac nor had any interest in marketing their precious eau-de-vie. But, our friends at Encantada realized that the soul of Armagnac exist ...Read More »

Billecart-Salmon "Sous Bois" Brut Champagne

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fermented and aged briefly in wood, this is dry, intense and toasty while still giving space for white fruits and some citrus. Richly endowed, spicy, and tangy, its structure and tight texture mark it out as a Champagne for long-term aging. The aftertaste is brisk, packed with acidity and with reminiscences of the oak-aging in the vanilla finish. (RV)" (12/2016) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich flavors of glazed apricot and baked currant fruit, toast, hazelnut, spice and lime blossom show intensity in this well-meshed Champag ...Read More »
