How about this sleeper wine from a tiny family owned producer in Oakville. On one side of this property you'll find Dalla Valle...on the other side, Rudd! Just down the street are Tench Vineyard and Screaming Eagle. Talk about a prime location! The Buselli family bought the parcel of land in the 1980's and until recently sold the fruit to some of Napa's most prestigeous wineries. In the last few years they enlisted the help of super star winemaker, Tim Milos, to craft very small amounts of their own estate wine. The results are spectacular! (Ryan Woodho...

2016 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
Silver Oak was founded to focus on Cabernet Sauvignon in 1972 by entrepreneur Raymond Twomey Duncan and winemaker Justin Meyer, and makes two key wines based on their respective AVAs. The 2016 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with a combined 5% of the other Bordeaux varietals and was aged in American oak (50% new) from Silver Oak's own cooperage. A classic nose of cassis and bramble fruits along with vanilla, sage, and mint reverberate on the palate with a pop of red berry fruit. Graphite mineral and dusty tannins grace a medium-plus finish...

96 points James Suckling: "Wow. This is real Cannubi, offering sliced ripe strawberries and dried flowers, such as roses, as well as crushed raspberries. It’s full-bodied, yet very tight and reserved. Stealth is a word that comes to mind. Love it. Best in a long time. " (05/2020) 94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Barolo Cannubi is ample and generous, with terrific textural resonance and breadth. Ripe dark cherry, plum, spice, licorice, new leather and menthol all flesh out in a supple, racy Barolo loaded with class and personality. The 2016 is rich, sensual ...

96 points James Suckling: "Lovely black-cherry, lavender and rose-petal character on the nose. Full body and firm, tight tannins that add structure and depth. Extremely long and intense. Excellent. " (09/2019) 92 points Vinous: "Dark soil, savory spice, and smoky mineral tones waft up from the glass, as Ferrero's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino draws me closer to find black raspberry and balsamic tones in a display which is ripe yet also grounded in the earth. On the palate, dark, fleshy textures give way to ripe black fruits, complemented by savory herbs,...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As to the red, rocking levels of kirsch, black raspberries, toasted spices, and garrigue emerge from the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It's full-bodied, concentrated, pure and elegant, with sweet tannin, and an opulent, flamboyant style. Based largely on Grenache, with smaller amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre, it has fine tannin, impeccable balance, and a great finish. Along with the 2010, it’s the finest wine to date from this estate." (08/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I appear to have underestimated the 2016 Châtea...

95 points Vinous: "The 2016 Barolo Bussia is laced with a whole range of sweet floral and balsamic overtones, along with striking underpinnings of structure and tannin that give the wine its shape. A wine of energy, tension and nuance, the Bussia is just superb in 2016. Time in the glass brings out its ample, expansive richness. I can't wait to see how it ages. (AG)" (02/2020) 95 points Wine & Spirits: "This wine is rich and supple, its flavors of warmed dark cherry edged in notes of anise and smoke. A bright core of acidity lifts and energizes the fla...

Camus is an underrated domaine with good grand cru holdings in Gevrey-Chambertin. It's existed, more or less, since 1732, but mostly after the phylloxera epidemic, when Joseph Camus purchased abandoned vineyards. The wines are not filtered, so you'll often find sediment, but this ensures that every iota of flavor from the grape makes it into the final wine. "The prices at this domaine are down-right reasonable," according to the Burgundy Report. "Tasted at the domaine as a ‘family,’ each wine is interesting and follows the hierarchy – there’s a clear di...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing linearity and focus, the Luigi Pira 2016 Barolo Vignarionda is slightly closed upon first inspection. If you go back to the wine hours after you have opened the bottle, you will find that it has beautifully transformed and evolved. That tiny point of initial reduction serves the wine well and reminds you that this classic vintage is one with exceptional aging potential. A 4,000-bottle release, this wine offers energy and resonance. It is partially aged in French barrique and partially in botte grande. (ML...

96 points James Suckling: "Attractive aromas and flavors of black olives and plums. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. Nice, linear tannins. Turns chewy and muscular. Precise and focused. Give it some time. " (03/2019) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Spiky dried herb, wood and cedar join an aromatic invitation of lavender in this lovely, powerful blend of 67% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, all from the estate. Earthy and fresh in bright underlying acidity, it remains high-toned throughout, expressing currant, clove...

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "My favorite in the lineup, the 2017 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is stunning in every way. Gorgeous black raspberry fruits, lots of floral, scorched earth, and sappy herb aromatics, medium to full-bodied richness, flawless balance, and a great finish all make for one of the most captivating Pinot Noirs in the vintage. It's brilliant today yet should easily evolve for 15 years or more." (09/2020) 95 points Vinous: "The 2017 Pinot Noir Jensen Vineyard is powerful and tightly wound today. That won't be an issue in a few years of cour...

2016 Bodegas Aleanna "Gran Enemigo" Cabernet Franc Gualtallary Argentina
Back In Stock!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the 2016 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard transported me back to the classical wines from the Bordeaux of yesteryear, with austerity and with no room for sweetness or creamy texture. This is about chalk and umami, salty and tasty, with the clout and wilderness of Gualtallary; its electric freshness and fine tannins; the expression of Cabernet Franc (with some Merlot) in the poor, stony and limestone-rich soils from the high-altitude vineyards; and the intensity this altitude provides, as there...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Winemaker Chris Figgins has produced one of the wines of the vintage and his 2016 Estate Red Wine checks in as a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot that spent 23 months in 50% new French oak. It offers a deep ruby/purple color as well as a killer bouquet of crème de cassis, toasted spice, tobacco, and earth. Incredibly pure, full-bodied, and layered on the palate, it's a magical wine that has no hard edges, building tannins, and a gorgeous finish. It's the finest wine under this label to date." (04/2019) 94 po...

94 points James Suckling: "There’s a surprisingly herbal note to this, reminiscent of peppercorns and bell pepper, but that only adds to the impression of dark cherries, dark plums and elderberry compote. Hints of vanilla and cloves. Round and very mouth-filling on the palate with a plethora of menthol, asphalt and tar, coating every extremity of the mouth. The finish has an ever-so-slight, sweet impression, but there’s firmness aplenty. " (09/2019) 93 points Vinous: "There is an unbelievable amount of vibrant, unbridled energy in the 2013 Amarone dell...

99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of woodland berry, underbrush, hazelnut and camphor form the nose along with a whiff of rose petal on this captivating, delicious wine. The full-bodied structured palate is still young and primary but already shows raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, star anise, tobacco and the barest hint of game. Tightly knit noble tannins and fresh acidity provide the firm frame and impart serious aging potential. Hold for even more complexity. *Cellar Selection* (KO)" (07/2020) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "All of ...


95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship cuvée is the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Des Generations Gaston Philippe. It offers more oak as well as concentration and depth. Ripe, powerful blue fruits, violets, plums, and incense notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated 2017 that brings the power yet stays pure, balanced, and focused. It’s a beautiful wine. If you’re oak adverse, give bottles 4-5 years. It should be long-lived." (08/2019) K&L Notes: The flagship wine from Gardine, the Gaston-Philippe is named for the Gaston and Philippe Brune...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with alluring scents of menthol, candied violets, dark chocolate and clove oil over a core of crème de cassis, warm blueberries and black raspberries plus a waft of cedar chest. Full-bodied, the palate is absolutely packed with beautifully ripe black fruit layers, framed by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long with a mint and violets perfume. 94+ (LPB)" (11/2020) K&L Notes: From a small vineyard at the base of Diamond Mountain,...

94 points Vinous: "Deep, inky and enveloping, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle Estate Vineyard captures all the elements that make Stags Leaps Cabernets so compelling. A host of lavender, mint, sage, graphite and crème de cassis notes flesh out in an effortless, noble Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with notable depth and intensity. (AG)" (12/2016) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rounded and approachable, this estate-driven wine is 100% varietal and dusty on the palate in tight-grained oak and tannin. The flavors are richly rewarding, etched in chocolate...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cerretta is one of my personal favorite growing sites in Serralunga d'Alba, thanks to that more pronounced mineral signature of rusty nail or crushed stone that comes into plain view. White marl soils cover reddish clay not too far under the surface. Those territorial markers are especially well defined in this classic vintage. The Luigi Baudana 2016 Barolo Cerretta unfolds slowly in the glass to reveal orange peel, blue flower and camphor ash. There is generous black fruit in there as well, carefully woven into ...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Sports an intense and pure beam of raspberry and cassis flavors, flanked by sage, incense and black tea aromas and backed by mouthwatering licorice snap notes and a bramble-filled finish. A beautiful example of mountain fruit. (JM)" (03/2019)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still in demi-muid at the time of my visit, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Equivoque is a blend of two undestemmed parcels. It's medium to full-bodied and dark-fruited, with no obvious stemmy notes. Cassis and blueberries glide silkily across the palate, finishing long and intense. When his brother Jean-Luc Jamet went his own way with half of the family vineyards, Jean-Paul continued working in the existing winery above the town of Ampuis. It's always a treat to visit him there, getting a barrel-tasting tour of Côte...

2019 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

A mocha notes swirls around the fruit on the finish. (JM)" (06/2021) K&L Notes: There's no wine like Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon, and the 2019 vintage shows in spades what this brand is all about. Luxurious opulence on an unrivaled scale defines this wine year in and year out. Dark, super-ripe fruit lays over sleek, rich texture with additional complexity coming in form of cola, Chinese fi...

Creamy and elegant with a driven, focused finish. Cooler and more refined at the end." (12/2020) 94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is brilliant, and up with the crème de la crème at the price point. Lots of cassis, graphite, unsmoked tobacco, new leather, and cedar notes all give way to a medium to full-bodied, elegant, beautifully balanced 20...

100 points James Suckling: "Earthy aromas of bark, sand, truffles, graphite, rust, terracotta and sandalwood rise up from the deep with Burgundian poise; fruitier orange zest and preserved lemons glimmer in their wake, while riper incense and tar lurk in this dense forest of aromas. Physics itself gives way as the line between reduction and oxidation is blurred. There's such richness to the center palate, but the fruit there is vivacious and elegant, swaddled in robust but generous tannins that breach the outermost reaches of the mouth. The finish is hau...

Sweet red cherry, cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, anise and brambly notes build as this striking, expressive Barolo shows off its considerable charm. What a pretty wine it is. (AG)" (02/2021) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of three vineyards, the 2017 Barolo Carobric is ripe and confected on the nose with fresh cherry, licorice, and dried apricot.

2017 Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a structured red that’s built by broad tannins but approachable in its youth. Earthy peat, dried herb, cedar and cigar box play against a depth of dark cherry, cassis and plum, while fresh acidity permeates beneath, making for a cohesive package. (VB)" (12/2020) 94 points James Suckling: "This is really subtle and complex with black truffles, blackberries, lavender and rosemary. Medium to full body. Firm and silky tannins with beautiful fruit. Linear and racy. Love the balance and finesse." (10/2019)

Rich and sumptuous, the 2017 possesses off-the-charts richness and intensity. Black cherry, plum, new leather, licorice, spice and cedar are all fused together in this dazzling, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon; all the elements meld together in an effortless, flamboyant wine. This is a total pleasure bomb - for its quality and price, there is no question: the Reserve is the wine to buy at Turnbull. (AG)" (01/2020) 93 points Wine En...

94-97 points Vinous: "The 2018 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard is another exceptional wine in this range. Super-ripe dark red cherry, wild flowers, mint and spice are all wonderfully alive in this lush, inky Petite from one of the most pedigreed sites in St. Helena and Napa Valley more broadly. Time in the glass brings out a brighter set of red fruit, blood orange and floral notes to round things out beautifully. The Hayne is one of many highlights in this fabulous range of 2018s from Larry Turley and Tegan Passalacqua. (AG)"

2016 Le Potazzine Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Earthy aromas of blue flower, rose, underbrush and leather mingle together on this gorgeous, fragrant red. All about finesse and flavor, the medium-bodied palate is absolutely delicious, featuring juicy morello cherry, crushed raspberry, baking spice, star anise and the barest hint of game. It’s radiant and beautifully balanced thanks to taut, polished tannins and bright acidity. It’s already showing incredibly well but hold for even more complexity. *Cellar Selection* (KO)" (03/2021) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Features black currant, blackberry and boysenberry reduction flavors that are tightly coiled for now, carried by well-embedded acidity and racy graphite notes. The long finish pumps out fruit, with extra anise and sweet tobacco elements checking in. This should evolve well in the cellar. (JM)" (06/2020)

99 points James Halliday: "From Block 31, the highest elevation at 210m, with the deepest sand. Hand-picked, mechanically sorted, 50% whole berries, open-fermented, 21 days on skins, 11 months on lees in French oak. A rainbow of aromas, leading me to abort my first mental description because I'd already run out of breath."

Trabucchi has always been among our favorite producers of Amarone, for their flavor, character, and fun. Over the entrance to the winery is inscribed, "With inspiration from Giuseppe Quintarelli, help from Romano Dal Forno and the money of Sig. Trabucchi," who is obviously someone with a great sense of humor. Valpolicella is one of the most exciting winemaking zones in Italy now. Gone are the days of the ubiquitous plonk; cheap and wet. Today's Valpolicella is stunningly aromatic, concentrated, richly textured, and spicy. The Trabucchi Amarone has less f...

95 points Decanter: "The rocky minerality of the region shows from first sniff through to the lengthy finish. The earthiness is beautifully offset by fleshy red and black fruit, with spice-infused cherry, bittersweet chocolate, espresso and vanilla notes. For all its youthful intensity, the palate is remarkably fresh and bright. (LM)" (07/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""In all my years, I've never seen a Cabernet vintage like 2015, in terms of yield," Jeffrey Patterson tells me. "We had very low yields. The vines didn't have clusters. ...

96 points Vinous: "The 2016 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard The XO emerges from the X Block, the coldest site on the property, and is 100% Syrah grafted onto own-rooted Riesling. Aromatically explosive and intense, the 2016 remains bright and light on its feet for such an intense wine. Hints of black pepper, mint, lavender and licorice add layers of nuance. More than anything else, the XO is all class. This is such a tremendous wine." (09/2019) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is about as extreme as cool-climate Syrah can get. Aromas of cracked pepper, tar,...

Full body and ultra-fine tannins with beautiful grace and balance. Shows structure yet refinement at the same time. Needs four to five years to come completely together, but already so beautiful." (02/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Beau-Sejour Becot (80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon) is just a little closed to begin, opening out...

As usual, this cuvée comes from older vines in the La Crau, la Guigasse, and les Serres lieux-dits, which are a mix of more pebbly and sandy soils. It ratchets up the intensity over the classic cuvée yet stays beautifully balanced with a weightless texture, a great mid-palate, and a blockbuster of a finish. It’s not going to ...

Its fruit is at the forefront but anchored by a mineral undertow that should intensify with age. It's a beauty already, framed by fine, chalky tannins. (AI)" (12/2019) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In years in which there's no Cuvée da Capo, Feraud produces a Cuvée Laurence, which is similar to the Cuvée Reservée, but with extended aging (usually around four years) in foudre.

Over the past two decades, Kosta Browne has risen to prominence among California Pinot enthusiasts as a premier source for boutique, single-vineyard bottlings of extraordinary purity and luxurious complexity. A number of vineyard sources go into this bottling, the famed Gap's Crown, one of them.

Together, they form a singular wine that is distinctly Sonoma Coast, dense, powerful, and with notes of blue fruit. In the so...

Reminding me of a great Pomerol (L'Eglise Clinet) with its purity, complexity, and seamlessness, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. This is a powerful wine, yet it shines just as brightly for its elegance and balance. It's going to evolve ...

93 points Vinous: "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Fellom Ranch is the most reticent of the Arnot-Roberts Cabernets. Intensely savory and earthy, the 2018 offers quite a bit of intrigue, but it will require considerable cellaring. Cedar, spice, tobacco and dried herbs lend notable complexity to the dark fruit flavors. The natural concentration of small berries with little juice and high solids gives the wine its dense, brooding feel. (AG) 93+" (01/2021)

96 points Vinous: "The 2015 Brane-Cantenac is powerful, structured and explosive in feel. A deep, resonant wine, the 2015 boasts off the charts ripeness allied to formidable structure and tannic heft. I imagine the 2015 is going to need a number of years to become approachable and more than that to be at its best. The dark stone fruit, smoke, tobacco, spice and leather flavors pack a huge punch, but it is the wine's balance that places it among the elite on the Left Bank in 2015. Brane-Cantenac is a total pleasure bomb. I can't wait to taste it with a li...

Dense, with remarkable intensity and wonderful freshness, it is a cool climate Barossa Shiraz with good acidity, enormous concentration, and a backward style that promises to be ethereal with 4-5 more years of bottle age.

2017 Fontodi "Vigna del Sorbo" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione
Top Pick!
96 points Vinous: "The 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Vigna del Sorbo is a dense, packed wine. It is also surprisingly, almost shockingly backward. That is probably a good thing for its long-term aging prospects. Readers hoping to get an early glimpse into the 2017 before it shuts down may have a hard time doing that, as today acids and tannin dominate. I expect the 2017 will be stellar in another 4-5 years and drink well to age 25-30 if not longer. Proprietor Giovanni Manetti gave the 2017 18 months in barrique followed by 6 months in cask. (AG) 9...

While many of California's young wineries, especially those in the Napa Valley, chose to focus their energy on Cabernet Sauvignon, Dan and Margaret Duckhorn bucked the trend, devoting a lot of energy to Merlot as a stand-alone wine, not just as a blending grape. Three Palms was Duckhorn's first vineyard-designated Merlot back in 1978, and it has remained an age-worthy classic in their portfolio vintage after vintage.

Drink across the next decade." (07/2019) 94-95 points Vinous: "Deep red. High-pitched cherry, black raspberry and rose scents are complemented by hints of succulent herbs, exotic spices...
