2016 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "A stunning red with currants, blackberries, roses and violets. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and polish and finesse to the powerful tannins. A real stunner. Better than 2015. Take a serious look at it, beginning 2024." (02/2019) 96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "It’s a total rock star of a wine and has fabulous notes of crème de cassis, barbecue smoke, graphite, and sandalwood that build beautifully with time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, layered, and seamless, it’s incredibly impressive and I’d wager up ...

2016 Heitz Cellar "Lot C-91" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "Blue fruit with stone, lavender and currant aromas and flavors. Fresh herbs too. Medium-bodied with ultra-fine tannins. Such firmness and focus and beauty. A blend of all their top single vineyards. Drink or hold." (11/2021) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Shows a perfumed note, with red tea and sandalwood hints throughout. Supple red currant, fresh Damson and cherry preserve flavors do the heavy lifting. Fine-grained and very focused on the finish, with some sneaky length to boot. Drink now through 2034. (JM)" (09/2021) K&L Not...

2016 Nervi-Conterno "Vigna Molsino" Gattinara
Top Pick!
96 points Vinous: "Tasted next to the Valferana, the 2016 Gattinara Vigna Molsino is much more nervous in feel. Iron, dried herbs, sweet dried cherry, mint, crushed rocks, white pepper and earthy notes give the Molsino a good deal of aromatic complexity to match its intense, saline-infused minerality. Today, though, the tannins and acids are almost overpowering. Readers will find an old-school, classically austere Gattinara that needs 10-15 years to be at its best. The 2016 is an absolute jewel of a wine, but it should be purchased only by readers with e...

96 points John Gilman: "The 2016 les Preuses from Domaine Fèvre is another brilliant young wine. The bouquet shows all of the mineral complexity of this great terroir, wafting from the glass in a refined mix of grapefruit, pear, white flowers, lime zest, a hint of beeswax and a glorious bath of limestone minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and very solid at the core, with stunning backend mineral drive, lovely focus and grip and a very long, very pure and dancing finish." (11/2017) 95 points James Suckling: "Superfine, powerfu...

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)

2016 Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Intense aromas of underbrush, wild berry, new leather and pipe tobacco lead the way on this fragrant Brunello. Full bodied and elegantly structured, the savory palate features ripe morello cherry, licorice and truffle before a black-tea finish. Firm, refined tannins and fresh acidity keep balanced and give it an ageworthy structure. *Cellar Selection* (KO)" (03/2021) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Canalicchio di Sopra 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows balance and symmetry with that difficult twofold delivery o...

96 points Vinous: "The 2016 Gattinara Vigna Valferana is every bit as impressive from bottle as it was from cask. Rich and resonant, the 2016 is so supremely beautiful as it opens up in the glass. It is a wine of real breadth and textural expansiveness. Rose petal, mint, sweet dried cherry, tar, anise and orange peel are some of the nuances that emerge, but the Valferana is a wine to admire for its total sense of balance. In a word: Lights out. Make that two words. (AG)" (09/2020) K&L Notes: Nervi is a historic, benchmark Gattinara producer possessing ...

2016 Produttori del Barbaresco "Pora" Barbaresco Riserva (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting off this tasting of new Riservas from Produttori del Barbaresco is the 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Pora. This is a beautifully elegant and silky wine with a soft entry of wild berry fruit, lilac and wild rose. The bouquet opens gracefully with a fluid, slow-building intensity that feels silky and delicate to all the senses. It holds back from showing any overt or determined level of power, remaining instead silky and smooth throughout. It treads quietly and softly. Production is 13,403 bottles, and fruit is ...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) comes from a vineyard that contains more volcanic rock. Deep purple-black in color, it reveals slightly tarry notes to begin, soon opening out to beautiful black cherry, black berry and warm cassis scents with hints of cigar box, charcuterie, licorice and Indian spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness supporting the densely packed earth layers, finishing very long an...

2016 Aldo Conterno Bussia Barolo (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
95 points Wine Spectator: "A fresh and elegant red, showing aromas and flavors of cut hay, strawberry, cherry, iron, eucalyptus and tar. Lithe and intense, with a long, savory aftertaste. (BS)" (09/2021) K&L Notes: As one of the undisputed titans of Barolo, Aldo Conterno had a life and career as storied and revered as anyone in wine. The second son of Barolo's most legendary icon, Giacomo Conterno, excellence was always a part of his DNA, but Aldo also was the rare sort who forged his path to greatness independent of the reputation of his forebears. So...

97 points James Suckling: "This is really beautiful with complex black cherry, berry, walnut and dark chocolate. Some mushroom and smoke. It’s tight and reserved with polished tannins and wonderful balance and finesse. Persistent and intense. Drink after 2025." (10/2020) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Uccelliera 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to dark fruit and wild cherry with warmer tones of cured tobacco, spice and potting soil. It shows the extra density, darkness and richness that comes so beautifully to fruit grown on the sun-dre...

2016 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Back In Stock!
Top Pick!
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As to the reds, the 2016 Domaine de Chevalier is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc that saw an extended maceration, malo in barrel, and 18 months in just 35% new French oak. This deep purple-hued beauty boasts a powerful bouquet of tobacco smoke, damp earth, gravelly, rocky minerality, wood smoke, and loads of dark fruits. Full-bodied, deep, concentrated yet incredibly elegant and seamless on the palate, it’s a legendary Chevalier in the making. While I rated this as hig...

2016 Parusso "Mosconi" Barolo (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "An exotic, high-toned Barolo with blackberry, walnut and dried-flower aromas and flavors, as well as orange undertones. It’s full-bodied with spices and ripe fruit. Figs, too. Long and wild. Drink or hold." (06/2020) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Parusso 2016 Barolo Mosconi exhibits that same power, intensity and dark fruit with aromas of grape skins and vinous components. Marco Parusso lets his grapes undergo a very light appassimento in a cold storage room before pressing, and he uses a percentage of whole-c...

2016 Massolino "Parussi" Barolo (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Of the four single-vineyard Baroli made by Massolino, the 2016 Barolo Parussi is the only one with fruit from Castiglione Falletto. This wine is elegant and tight, and it shows a superb level of Nebbiolo precision. That sharpness is built upon beautifully in a classic vintage such as 2016, and aromas of wild berry, earth, tobacco, licorice and dusty limestone come into startling focus. Parussi adopts a direct and linear approach with fine and polished tannins. In a portfolio that so closely monitors the taste pro...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving south toward the Santa Cruz Mountains, the 2016 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard offers a more elegant, medium-bodied, supple style as well as perfumed red fruit, dried flowers, and spice, with just a hint of minerality. This site has slightly more clay in the soils and the wine is always one of the more rounded and charming in the lineup." (02/2019) 94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard is beautifully lifted and precise. Bright red berry fruit and floral notes are nicely layered in a Pinot that speak...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Incredibly perfumed and complex, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve Auguste Favier has put on weight since I tasted it as a barrel sample and offers full-bodied notes of currants, Asian spices, dried flowers, and lavender. It's powerful, concentrated and layered, yet always light on its feet and beautifully balanced, with a seamless, elegant texture as well as the purity of fruit that's the hallmark of this great vintage." (08/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Cinsault, the 2016 Ch...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Massolino 2016 Barolo Margheria offers a plump and ripe fruit profile with aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and plum. Beyond that powerful primary bouquet are layers of spice, tobacco and crushed stone. Serralunga d'Alba often delivers ferrous mineral aromas that resemble iron ore and rusty nail, and those appear here too in a supporting role. The Margheria site shapes structured wines that are slightly more accessible, if you consider neighboring sites in Serralunga d'Alba, but it is also built for the long...

2016 Costanti Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Back In Stock!
99 points Wine Enthusiast: "This savory stunner has enticing scents of violet, rose and wild berry that gain complexity alongside notes of leather, camphor and sandalwood. The elegantly structured palate is all about precision, featuring juicy cherry, blood orange, star anise and tobacco framed in taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity keeps it energized. *Cellar Selection* (KO)" (03/2021) 98 points Decanter: "With a history stretching back to the mid-16th century, Conti Costanti is one of the founding estates of the Brunello di Montalcino denomination,...

94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Rio Sordo is a serious, somber wine. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol show off the darker side of Nebbiolo to great effect. In most vintages, Rio Sordo is an easygoing wine, but not in 2016. Readers will find a potent, brooding yet mid-weight Barbaresco that screams with character. What a way to start this tasting! (AG)" (10/2020)

2016 Produttori del Barbaresco "Muncagota" Barbaresco Riserva (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Back In Stock!
94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Barbaresco Riserva Muncagota continues this tasting of frankly awe-inspiring wines. Rich, deep and super-expressive, the 2016 hits all the right notes. Black cherry, plum, spice, leather, licorice emerge, but only with great reluctance. The Muncagota is another wine in this range that clearly needs time.(AG)" (10/2020)

2016 Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "A neoclassical edition of Grand-Puy-Lacoste, this has cedar, graphite, deeply integrated cedar and spicy-oak influence and a very fresh array of ripe blackberries, dark cherries and cassis. The palate is so seamless. It builds beautifully and delivers a long, seamless array of perfectly ripe dark fruit, swathed in fine, firm, ascending layers of tannins. As good as we have seen in recent vintages, this is a star of the vintage." (02/2019) 97 points Vinous: "The 2016 Grand Puy-Lacoste has a clean, precise bouquet with nicely d...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A brilliant vintage for Napa Valley, and coming from a single vineyard in St. Helena, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Bartolucci Vineyard sports a deep ruby/purple (almost completely opaque) hue to go with a gorgeous perfume of crème de cassis, smoked earth, tobacco, camphor, and subtle cedar pencil nuances. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it’s flawlessly balanced and has a great mid-palate as well as bright, polished tannins that carry through to the finish. This gorgeously complex, complete, satisfying Napa Valley Cabernet shin...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As always, the 2016 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard is the most masculine and mineral-driven, with an exotic bouquet of white flowers, iodine, crushed rocks, and stone fruits. Reductive, concentrated, and powerful on the palate, with medium to full-bodied richness, it’s a brilliant vintage from this vineyard and is a world-class Chardonnay in every way." (02/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard offers up aromas of pear, grapefruit pith, iodine and fresh nutmeg. On the palate, it's ...
Price: $99.95

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chardonnay Alpine Vineyard is a stunning young wine that's one of the best whites Rhys has produced to date. Opening up with vivid aromas of lemon oil, citrus pith, crisp apple and nutmeg, it's fuller-bodied, glossier and more textural than the Horseshoe bottling, with a broader attack as well. But it's also intensely saline and mineral, with wonderful concentration and intensity. (WK)" (05/2018) 95 points Vinous: "The 2016 Chardonnay Alpine Vineyard is fascinating to taste next to the Horseshoe, as it...

2016 Produttori del Barbaresco "Pajè" Barbaresco Riserva (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Back In Stock!
96 points Vinous: "The 2016 Barbaresco Pajè opens with deeply pitched spice notes that are so alluring. Pliant and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2016 possesses tremendous density and brawn. Blue/purplish fruit, cloves, lavender and menthol infuse this rich, hedonistic Barbaresco with tons of character. The tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the sheer density of the fruit. In a word: impressive. (AG)" (10/2020)
Price: $84.99

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to the reds, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Dollarhide Estate Vineyard is all varietal and spent 18 months in 48% new French oak. It offers lots of smoky blue fruits, scrub brush, and damp earth notes, an inky purple color, medium to full body, a big kick of gravelly minerality, and a great finish. Coming from the oldest vines on the estate, it’s a seriously good Napa Cabernet that will benefit from a year or three of bottle age and cruise for two decades." 94 points James Suckling: "Bright violet and red-cherry aromas lead t...

97 points James Suckling: "This is a reserved and tight Monte Rosso with bark and currant character. Wet earth. Full-bodied, balanced and extremely long. Fantastic, subtle finish. Reminds me of old Louis Martini Mountain Cabs." (11/2020) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Rosso Vineyard comes galloping out of the glass with notes of crème de cassis, warm plums, cast-iron pan and bouquet garni, plus touches of lavender and olives. Medium to full-bodied...

96 points Vinous: "Brilliant magenta. Intense raspberry liqueur, cherry pit, incense, potpourri and spicecake aromas show sharp delineation and pick up a vibrant mineral quality with air. Sweet and energetic in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated but lithe black raspberry, cherry pie, five-spice powder and lavender pastille flavors that slowly fan out on the back half. Effortlessly marries richness to finesse and finishes wonderfully long and spicy, with harmonious tannins adding shape and gentle grip. (JR)" (12/2019) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fr...

98 points James Suckling: "A very beautiful and thoughtful Testamatta with aromas of earth, terra cotta, black tea, and lavender. Full-bodied, very layered and extremely polished with superb, soft tannins. Racy and very long. Muscular and formed but very, very balanced. Gorgeous richness and depth. Shows balance and wonder. " (07/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Testamatta represents a blend of fruit from old vines spread across the various vineyard holdings farmed by Bibi Graetz in both the Siena and Firenze provinces of Tuscan...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The first release for this cuvée made from two separate blocks of the estate vineyard, the 2016 Proprietary Red Blend is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (98%), but the cuvée will move more toward a Bordeaux blend as more fruit becomes available. Full-bodied, structured, and backward, with plenty of black fruits and herbal notes, it has a big mid-palate, no shortage of tannins, and a great finish. It needs 3-4 years of bottle age, but it’s another brilliant wine from this estate and winemaker Philippe Melka. 96+" (08/2020)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard is deep garnet-black in color with pronounced cassis, redcurrants, black cherries, eucalypt, dark chocolate and lavender.

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Aubert "CIX" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (97RP, 96JD, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir CIX Vineyard bursts forth with baked cherries, red currant jelly and mulberries with touches of cinnamon stick, violets, baking spices and potpourri. Full-bodied, opulent and wonderfully spicy in the mouth, it has a solid frame of firm and grainy tannins with a seamless acid line and a very long, decadent finish. This wine was bottled in June 2017. (LPB) 97+" (10/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 2016 Aubert "UV Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (100JD, 95RP, 94VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the Pinot Noirs, this is unquestionably the finest set of releases from the estate I’ve ever tasted, and it appears some of the magic Mark finds with his Chardonnays is finding its way over to the Pinot Noirs. The 2016 Pinot Noir UV Vineyard is 100% Calera clone (which reportedly comes from Vosne-Romanée) from a site in the Sonoma Coast and was brought up in 60-70% new French oak. It also saw around 10-20% whole clusters. Incredible ripe cherries, strawberries, exotic spices, blood orange, and floral notes all soar from this transparently colored, multi-dimensional, layered Pinot Noir that has no hard edges, ultra-fine tannin, and a finish that just won’t quit. It’s the finest Pinot Noir ever made from this address." (06/2018)
