95 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* Violets and compost dance through the aromas, leading into an intensely fruity palate loaded with sappy berry richness, nuanced with scents and streaks of cured meat, garrigue, earth and graphite. Blending 77% Syrah with 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, it strikes a perfect balance among fruit, earth, and rock. At its core it is still wrapped tight, immaculately clean, and still almost impenetrably dense.

2016 Larkmead "Dr. Olmo" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $160) (Previously $160)
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "Impressive aromas of dried flowers, crushed blackberries and plums. Some sweet-tobacco undertones. Full-bodied, dusty and juicy with chewy tannins that are supple and savory, combining with the fruit. Flavorful and intense. So structured." (03/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Dr. Olmo (Black Label) is deep garnet-purple in color, offering exuberant notions of crushed black and red currants, warm plums and wild blueberries with an undercurrent of c...

" (01/2021) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This offers a fun blast of blueberry and açaí berry fruit, backed by violet and cocoa notes, ending with a graphite edge that should soften with brief cellaring. Reveals a lingering violet accent. (JM)" (11/2020)

97 points International Wine Review: "The 2017 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Quilceda Creek is absolutely sensational. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from Champoux, Lake Wallula, Palengat, and Wallula Vineyards and spent 20 months in 100% new French oak. As this slowly begins to unwind in the glass it releases deep seductive aromatics of black cherries, cassis and black plums that are joined by fresh violets, graphite and minerals along with hints of sweet spices and mocha that all come together and lift from the glass. On the palate ...

94 points Whisky Advocate: "Delicately aromatic and tropical on the nose, with piña colada, pistachio pudding, almond halva, coconut, and apple blossom. The palate is elegant and pretty, nuanced with pistachio, almond, vanilla malted milkshake, coconut, and pineapple, before sweeping oak and tobacco roll into a gorgeous tropical fruit and toasted coconut finish. A masterwork in balancing spirit character with finishing cask. —Susannah Skiver Barton" K&L Notes: This Loch Lomond Limited Edition bottling comes to us in partnership with Christie Kerr - lege...

93 points Whisky Advocate: "A riddle inside a bottle, this release follows Glenlivet’s previous mystery series bottlings Alpha, Cipher, and Code. Packaged in a jet-black bottle and box that looks part Arthur C. Clarke monolith and part 3-D cryptic crossword puzzle, it’s devoid of cask information or tasting notes by design. The best solution is to open it and unlock the whisky’s secrets. Classic Glenlivet notes of lemon curd, melon, fresh peaches, bitter orange, and baked apples on the nose, followed by a smooth, creamy palate of marshmallow, toasted alm...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is blended with 7% Malbec, 4% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petite Verdot. It has a nose of blackcurrants and cherries with accents of loamy earth, cedar, dried herbs and sweet spice. The palate is full-bodied with lush fruits and a minerally undercurrent, grainy and with just enough freshness on the finish. (EB)" (08/2020)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Las Piedras comes from a rocky vineyard that normally yields a more elegant, floral wine compared to the Dr. Crane Vineyard, which is just a stone’s throw away. Deep purple-hued with notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice, flowery incense, and cigar tobacco, this rock star of a wine hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a lush, opulent texture, ripe tannins, and a great, great finish. 95+" (01/2020) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Caberne...

Whistle Pig 15 Year Old "K&L Swine Merchants" Barrel #2440 115.6 Proof Single Barrel Vermont Estate Oak Finished Cask Strength Straight Canadian Rye Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $230) (Previously $230)
Top Pick!
WhistlePig offers one of the most extensive rye barrel programs in the country and with some of the very best whiskey available it has won award after award for its innovation. The newest addition to the barrel lineup is the 15 Year Vermont Estate Oak Finished. Vermont oak trees from the WhistlePig farm in Shoreham, VT are harvested and made into custom barrels for finishing. The growing season in Vermont is short and this results in an incredibly tight grained wood (more rings in each stave). The already ancient 15 year old whiskey spends an additional...

The incredible Agricoles coming out of Trois Rivières are renowned worldwide, but only recently become available in the US. Trois Rivières refers both to the distillery and the 120-acre plantation bordered by the three rivers, St. Pierre, Oman, and Bois D'Inde.

Sullivans Cove 17 Year "Old & Rare" Single Cask Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $800) (Previously $800)
Top Pick!
Sullivans Cove has been distilling single malt whisky in Australia's Tasmania region since 1994. Using all local barley, local water, and no additional coloring, their whiskies are finally making the long trek from down under to the United States. Considering the modern Australian whisky industry is less than 30 years old, and the climactic conditions here are far warmer than Scotland, a 17 year old whisky is a huge achievement and a rare piece of Australian Whisky history. These whiskies also exhibit unrivalled depth and complexity, while still possessi...

There is excellent vivacity to the equally big-bodied and powerful flavors that also possess excellent mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a succulent but entirely serious youthfully austere finish that is quite firmly structured. Over the last few years the Clos de Vougeot appears to have taken over the crown as the best wine in the range and so it is again in 2017." (01/2020)...

The second release of Gosling's top of the line bottling pays homage to 165 years of family owned history.

The blend is then placed into American white oak barrels and married for an additional 2 years in Bermuda's hot and humid climate. These barrels were then bottled individually. The ultimate luxury sipping rum, only 1500 bottles were produced in total for the 2020 ...

91 points Whisky Advocate: "I feel this is by far the best whisky in the standard Auchentoshan portfolio, and it is one of the best Auchentoshans ever released. It’s delicious, nicely balanced, and with lovely depth for a Lowland whisky. Baked muffins, creamy vanilla, honey, and caramel blend nicely with delicate fruit notes (lemon, red current, strawberries). An impeccably balanced whisky. Similar to the 10 year old reviewed below, but with greater depth and a drier finish. (JH, Winter 2004)" K&L Notes: The quintessential Lowland single malt; it doesn’...

The Kukurhime, named for the Goddess of Hakusan Mountain where the water for this special sake is sourced, represents the rarest and most premium offering from the famous Kikuhime brewery. Aged for an incredible 10 years at low temperature, the sake is still brimming with vibrancy and tension. It will offer unprecedented complexity and depth while remaining lifted and bright beyond words. This sake can easily age for another decade or two before reaching peak maturity. Only 10 bottles available.

Expressive aromas and flavors of both fleshy exotic fruit and salty sea air reminiscent of Scotch, plus a healthy dose of rancio.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 23.8% Sauvignon Blanc and 76.2% Sémillon, the 2017 Blanc takes its time uncoiling from its tightly wound state, slowly revealing nuances of lemon tart, lime blossoms, green mango and jasmine with touches of cedar chest and sea spray. Medium-bodied, the palate has a beautifully expressed, quiet intensity, featuring loads of subtle mineral and citrus layers, finishing long and chalky. Beautiful.

92 points John Gilman: "In half bottle, the 1983 Canon is beautifully vibrant and tertiary in personality, offering up a fine aromatic constellation of black cherries, menthol, sweet dark berries, a touch of chocolate, sealing wax, chalky soil tones and a topnote of cigar smoke. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and has lovely mid-palate depth, with melted tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, complex and absolutely à point finish. This is a very underrated vintage of Canon, who had a wonderful run throughout the entire decade of the 1980s...

Château Climens always tends to go into its shell after bottling, which is probably why I was not dishing out an even higher score to this still, spellbinding Barsac. The 2007 is endowed with a lovely bouquet: very pure with honey, a touch of orange-blossom and a touch of quince.

This is a slice of heaven in ...

Cain makes some of the most classically styled and age-worthy red wines in California. They are not bawdy, voluptuous wines, but wines of grace and class. The 2007 Cain "Five" is the perfect example of this. From an incredible vintage where a lot of winemakers made flashy wines, this blend of 68% Cabernet, 16% Merlot, 6% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc shows remarkable restraint. Made entirely from fruit grown in the Cain Vineyard, the "Five" is balanced and rich, but still intense. It will benefit from aging five to seven years, and even u...

Yokowa AAA Rated Yamada Nishiki milled to 50% Normally the B.Y. (Brew Year) is aged for one year before release in June every year, but this rare Library Release has been carefully aged for a decade before release.

After 12 years of aging, the brewery feels that this has reached maturity, but should continue to evolve for several more years.

The famous Kiyasho Shuzo isn't Japan's oldest brewery, but it's certainly in the running for one of its best.

The company is driven by one goal—the undying pursuit of better sake. Nabari City is located on the Kii peninsula in the Iga region of Mie prefecture.
