Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "Cool and perfumed 2016 Brunello with black cherries, flowers and crushed stones. Medium to full body with firm, chewy tannins, yet polished and very silky. Mineral and seaweed undertones. Just a hint of bitterness. " (11/2020) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine represents a selection of fruit from vineyards near the property's postcard-perfect Castello, and it's often the most representative of the new releases presented each year by Castello Banfi.

2018 Heir Apparent Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $150) (Elsewhere $150)
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Unquestionably my favorite in the lineup, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Heir Apparent has a Pauillac-like bouquet of blackcurrants, freshly sharpened lead pencils, tobacco, crushed stone, and new leather. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a seamless, elegant texture, good concentration, notable purity of fruit, and a great finish. While it’s not a blockbuster, it shines for its complexity and terrific overall balance and just has loads of character. If drinking any time soon, give bottles a ...

2018 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir Martinborough

97 points Sam Kim: "Splendidly perfumed and immensely complex, the wine shows sweet cherry, thyme, floral, cedar and earthy mushroom characters on the nose. The palate displays outstanding concentration and persistency, together with refined texture and flowing mouthfeel, finishing wonderfully long and seductive. It’s multi-layered and perfectly proportioned with a stunning line and length. " (08/2020) 96 points Bob Campbell: "Elegant, aromatic pinot noir with bright, high energy floral, violet, cherry, fresh herb, star anise and restrained spicy oak s...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Pinot Noir Mills Vineyard is slightly deeper colored (it's still translucent) and offers a gorgeous nose of ripe redcurrants, cherries, spring flowers, sappy forest floor, and ample spice nuances. With medium to full body, beautiful depth of fruit, and a seamless texture, it's another stunning Pinot Noir from this team that I'd be happy to have in the cellar." (09/2020) 94 points Vinous: "The 2017 Pinot Noir Mills Vineyard is wonderfully expressive right out of the gate. Rose petals, mint, dried herbs, pine and blood or...

2008 Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne
Back In Stock!
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Enthusiast: "While still young, this Champagne has all the makings of greatness. Produced from grand cru vineyards, it already balances ripe white fruits with a firm structure that will age well. It’s relatively dry and has plenty of acidity, which will also aid in the longevity. *Top Cellar Selections 2019* (RV)" (12/2019) 95 points James Suckling: "This is a solid and very dense Champagne with a phenolic and rich texture. Layers of cooked apples and light lemon rind. Brioche and light pie-crust in the aftertaste. Fresh and relatively d...

Xavier Vignon "La Réserve XV XVI XVII" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The NV Châteauneuf Du Pape Reserve XV XVI XVII comes primarily from the magical 2016 vintage with smaller amounts from 2015 and 2017. It offers an extraordinary nose of blackcurrants, ground pepper, garrigue, and crushed violets. Rich, full-bodied, and incredibly seamless, with a stacked mid-palate, this is Châteauneuf Du Pape brilliance all the way. It’s terrific today yet will keep for 15+ years." (08/2019) K&L Notes: Xavier Vignon was always a scientist at heart and began his studies in pharmacology in Reims in the Champagne ...

Billecart-Salmon "Brut Réserve" Champagne

91 points James Suckling: "Plenty of ripe strawberries and wild raspberries on the nose here. Really attractive and vibrant in the mouth with fresh wild strawberries. It also shows a fleshy, fresh-fruit texture." (09/2018) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The cuvée from this great Champagne producer is dry, fruity with a fine line of minerality. That is balanced by the apple and crisp citrus-fruit flavors coming together in a vibrant, textured wine.

2017 Rippon "Mature Vine" Pinot Noir Lake Wanaka Central Otago

99 points James Suckling: "This offers aromas of violets, blueberries, red and dark cherries, fragrant, freshly cracked black pepper and wet dark stones. Complex, but still tightly wound and reserved. The palate is very concentrated, dense and elegantly poised with such powerful tannin, carrying concentrated blueberry and dark-cherry flavors long. Really taut, fully ripe and mouthwateringly intense Pinot Noir. Dark cherry-pit freshness to close. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but better in five years."

2016 Domaine Benedetti "Larmes Papales" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Top Pick!
96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The special cuvée is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Larmes Papales, 100% Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks and demi-muids. Just sensational anyway you look at it, with flamboyant notes of blackberries, roasted herbs, melted licorice, and Asian spices, this beauty is ripe, powerful, and full-bodied, with sweet tannin and a great finish. It’s for the Grenache lovers out there and will keep for 10-15 years. Despite its rich, powerful style, this beauty just glides over the palate. Bravo!" (08/2018) 95 points Robert P...

2016 Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
97 points Decanter: "Ettore Spina and Enrica Bandirola purchased the Sesta di Sopra estate as a holiday home in the late 1980s. After restoring the farmhouse, they replanted a total of 2.8 hectares of vines and produced their first wine from the 1999 vintage. The 2016 leads with captivating aromas of dry earth, tea, violet and lavender, and the palate is equally compelling. Battonage of the lees during ageing gives a rather sumptuous palate with perceptively talc-like dusty tannins sitting underneath the fruit. Iron and stone impart complexity to this se...

Louis Roederer "Collection 242" Brut Champagne

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cooked apple, bread dough and lemon tart follow through to a full body with round, delicious fruit and a rich, flavorful finish.

" (06/2021) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This debut release is very impressive indeed, wafting from the glass with notes of pear, peach, ripe citrus fruit, toasted almonds, fresh pastry and white flowers. Medium to full-bodie...

Nikka Coffey Still Japanese Grain Whisky (750ml)
Back In Stock!
92 points Whisky Advocate: "Sweet, with subtle, crisp, nutty oak, then comes fudge, ripe banana, and peach. The overall effect is like eating vanilla ice cream with toffee fudge and hazelnut sprinkles. The structure is thick and physical, the palate sweet and quite fat, with light hints of raspberry, fruit salad. A jag of acidity freshens the delivery on the finish. With water there’s more toffee, and it becomes slightly more yielding, with less oak. For me the gold standard of grain. (DB, Fall 2015)" 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The name of this whisky ...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Even better and a spectacular Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the 2010 Domaine des Sénéchaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a similar blend of 56% Grenache, 22% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, and 2% assorted varieties. Aged 55% in foudre, 35% in barrels, and 15% in tank, it exhibits a classical profile of sweet kirsch, spice-box, dusty minerality, and hints of leather and pepper to go with a full-bodied, seamless, and mouth filling texture. Concentrated, polished, and supple, with serious depth through the mid-palate and a blockbuster finish, this beauty ope...

94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2019 Hermitage Cuvée Emilie certainly doesn't lack for color, offering a dense purple/blue hue to go with gorgeous crème de cassis, blackberry, toasted spice, cured meats, and barbecue smoke-like aromas and flavors. With full-bodied richness, a fleshy, opulent texture, firm tannins, and notable purity as well as freshness, this has everything a young Hermitage should have.

It's finely textured with grainy tannins, offering superb structure and length. At its best: now to 2035." (10/2021) 95 points Bob Campbell: "Vibrant, high-energy pinot noir with floral, violet, cherry, dried herb, brambles and spicy-oak flavours. An elegant rather than blockbuster wine with the sort of structure and fruit intensity that sugge...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aromas of stone fruits, citrus zest, toasted nuts and smoke introduce the 2020 Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru La Pièce Sous Le Bois, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and lively wine that's bright and mineral, concluding with a saline finish. The 2020 vintage has turned out quite nicely chez Domaine Paul Pernot, where the house style remains fleshy, giving and front-loaded. For now, the domaine's wines are made in much the same way that they always have been: whole-cluster pressed, barrel fermented and matured for some ...

Sweet but lively, with noteworthy energy and considerable personality to its fruit and mineral flavors. I like this style. (ST)" (09/2010) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Supple and fresh, with a touch of spice complementing the apple, grapefruit and wax flavors. Picks up a mineral element on the finish, with a chalky feel. (BS)" (11/2010)
Price: $69.99

93 points Wine Spectator: "The smooth texture and steeped cherry and plum flavors bode well for this red, as eucalyptus, hay, tobacco and iron elements add depth. Firm, with ample fruit, a well-integrated structure and lingering finish. Best from 2024 through 2043. 583 cases made, 200 cases imported. — BS" (12/2021)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Réserve Spéciale is a stunner! It was aged 32 months in 62% new oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. It has a deep ruby color and is youthfully slow to open, unwinding to kirsch, crushed blackcurrants, blueberries, cedar, cigar box and iron layered with accents of grilled meats, rosewater perfume, dried herbs and classy new oak spice. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky in the mouth, slowly unfolding to mineral-laced fruits, with a chalky frame and great freshness, finishing very long...

Youthful and a little closed at this stage but with the potential to develop well with bottle age. Aerate for best results. " (09/2021) 94 points Vinous: "The 2020 Pinot Noir Calvert may initially seem smooth and refined, but there's no escaping its sense of power; it packs a punch with its concentrated core and structured tannic frame. While you'll find cherry-like fruit and a floral lift, there's a distinctly savory edge to this vintage, w...

94 points James Suckling: "A beautiful, fresh red with blackberry, blueberry and some chocolate. Pine, light toffee and coffee undertones. Dried herbs, too. Medium to full body with intensity and richness. Dusty tannins. Savory finish. Very drinkable now, but even better in 2023. " (03/2021) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Intense aromas of blackberry and cassis meet with smoked meats, strong oak and light herbs on the toasty, layered nose of this bottling, which includes 21% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot.

There are savory sparkles throughout in the background, and the energy here is coiled and vibrant.

Price: $74.95

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smells of ripe grapes, grape must and lead pencil in the initial whiffs; air contact stimulates baking spices, black currants, jasmine, pepper and paraffin. Entry is crisp, tart and intensely ripe; midpalate highlights black grape to maximum concentration. Finishes bittersweet to sweet." (11/2008) K&L Notes: The Jacopo Poli Sarpa is a perfect grappa for those who like a dry not overly aromatic style that is very rich and complex. One of Italy's very top producers by anyones measure.

Based on the 2017 harvest, the blend includes more than 40 percent from a perpetual reserve, with vintages going back to 1988, all Chardonnay from the family’s parcels in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Cramant, Avize and Oger. The wine’s ornate intensity includes scents of spring blossoms, oyster mushrooms, celery leaf and the nuttiness of long-aged Comté.

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are three Carignan/Cariñena wines from the same vineyard in Truquilemu in 2018, and the 2018 Vigno comes from a section further down along the creek where there's terrific drainage and thus low yield and concentration. It's Carignan with smidgens of País and Monastrell in the field blend, the grapes grown by a mall farmer by hand and horse with traditional methods of dry-farming, uncertified organic for 75+ years. Like all the rest, it fermented in open-top vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in used ba...

Made from grapes throughout the appellation, the majority from St. Helena, it blends in small amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cab Franc. Turned earth, pungent tobacco leaf and currant define its savory, substantially structured elegance that offers room to age. *Editors' Choice* (VB)" (07/2021) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon also contains 8% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 2% Cabern...

Lightly hued with a crisp bouquet of crushed citrus, golden apples, and toasted brioche, it has medium-bodied richness, crisp acids, a great mousse, and shows a clean, precise vibe on the finish. It brings serious acidity yet still stays nicely balanced. It’s going to evolve for a solid decade."

Jack Daniels " Barrel Proof" Single Barrel Select Tennessee Whiskey (750ml)

But one sip, and it is clear this whiskey means business: Deep vanilla cookie and cigar tobacco flavors unfold to a big, burnt-caramel finish, which washes over the palate like a rolling wave. Manhattan-worthy. (KM)" (03/2011) K&L Notes: Finally, cask strength Jack. Not sure how long this will last, but at least we've got some serious juice coming out of Lynchburg.

It's hands down the finest wine I've tasted from this estate and offers a thrilling bouquet of cassis and black raspberry fruits as well as notes of camphor, tobacco, dried flowers, and dried rose petals. Full-bodied and flawlessly balanced, with silky tannins and that rare richness without weight character that's the hallmark of truly great wines, it's going to benefit from 3-4 years (it's brilliant even toda...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Leonardini Estate was aged for 26 months in French oak, 65% new. Deep garnet-purple in color, warm cassis, blackberry pie and mulberries scents slowly unfurl, giving way to nuances of pencil lead, mossy tree bark and truffles with a waft of cardamom. Full-bodied, the palate is delivering mouth-filling black fruit and compelling tension with a plush texture and a long, savory finish."
Price: $69.95

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Moderate wood sets off the more deeply pitched aromas of dark currant, plum liqueur, violet and soft earth nuances. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the caressing yet quite serious and intense flavors that display an almost pungent minerality on the notably firm, vibrant and well-balanced finale. Excellent juice and very promising. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*" (04/2020) 93 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Gravains from Domaine Pavelot was really singing at the time of my visit and this wine is destine...
