2013 Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault 1er Cru "Perrières"

92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Among the whites, three premiers crus from Meursault show outstanding potential...the austere, racy and intense chalk-infused Perrières (92–95 points, non-blind). (BS)" (2/2015) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru les Perrières has an attractive austerity on the nose, well defined, and actually capturing the essence of Perrières better than some of the more famous producers. The palate is crisp and precise with a keen line of acidity, well-integrated oak and a touch of grilled walnut and salinity toward the long finish. Bravo! This is very well-executed Perrières. ...Read More » 

1986 Duckhorn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Spectator: "Mature, with complex herb, sage, cigar box and a dried cherry and currant edge. Firmly tannic, this offers more life and vitality than most in this tasting.--'76/'86 California Cabernet retrospective." (Web-2007) (94 points in an earlier review...This remains a big, ripe, intense and concentrated wine, with rich, complex layers of earthy currant, mineral, plum, anise and cedar flavors. Tannins are softening, but it still has a long life ahead.--1986 California Cabernet horizontal. 12/1996)"

2001 Martinelli "Martinelli Vineyard" Reserve Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Wine Spectator: "Supple and harmonious, with smooth black cherry, blackberry and raspberry flavors that are delicate and elegant, turning silky and picking up a complex hint of hazelnut and spice on a long, rich finish. (JL)" (3/2004) 91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Martinelli's bias to unabashed ripeness is fully in evidence here, and, while coming with the usual caveats about excessive heat, this rich, big-bodied bottling is immensely stuffed and never loses sight of deep and downright juicy fruit. Laced with creamy oak and trimmed with hints of black earth and woodsy spice, it is a powerhouse version ...Read More » 

2012 Dönnhoff Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Riesling Spätlese Nahe (Previously $60)

93 points John Gilman: "The 2012 Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle Spätlese from Weingut Dönnhoff is a beautiful wine in the making, wafting from the glass in a complex and very pure and elegant mélange of pear, white cherries, orange zest, slate, a touch of petrol, bee pollen and violets. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long, pure and nicely reserved, with a fine core, ripe acids and superb length and grip on the very refined and youthful finish. 93+" (5/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Juicy, with lively apple, peach and lemon curd flavors, supple and spicy. The light finish offers honey cream notes, acc ...Read More » 

2003 Monbousquet, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This was an amazing performance for Monbousquet. The 2003 exhibits plenty of fat and succulence along with a full-bodied, sexy mouthfeel, and lots of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, baking spices and roasted herbs. Fully mature yet in no danger of falling apart or in decline, the color remains a healthy plum/garnet to the rim. This full throttle 2003 was one of the great buys of the vintage when it was first released, and continues to prove that great winemaking and viticultural management from less heralded terroirs can re ...Read More » 

2001 Lucia 'Gary's Vineyard' Santa Lucia Pinot Noir

1997 Williams-Selyem "Hirsch" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Slightly green-tinged yellow-gold color. Oily, slightly herbal aromas of lemon and orange rind and grapefruit. Rich-bordering-on-viscous, yet the citrusy flavors of lemon custard and grapefruit are quite fresh. Has a fairly substantial structure for aging, but not quite as much fat on the aftertaste as the Allen example. With a bit less extract from these young vines, there currently a hint of leesy bitterness." (6/1999)

1999 Bourgogne Rouge, Denis Bachelet

This tiny domaine is really producing some fabulous wines. Even this entry level Bourgogne is sophisticated, elegant and focused, with bright cherry notes. Recently bottled when tasted in March, it still showed great breeding. (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Wines) 'The style dignity and elegance of Denis Bachelet's wines must surely merit two stars. The Bourgogne Rouge is very sophisticated for a generic here. Medium body. Very good grip. This is splendidly delicious.'

1999 Kistler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

According to Robert Parker: "It is easy to get excited about Kistler's Pinot Noirs. All are aged in 100% new oak, made in small lots (250-500 cases), and bottled with neither fining nor filtration. They are trying to keep the levels of SO2 to minimal dosages so the wines can be as expressive as possible. These Pinot Noirs can easily hold their own in blind tastings with the finest red Burgundies." (12/98)

2013 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru "Sechet"

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Sechet has a strict but mineral-drenched bouquet that shows enormous potential. The palate already demonstrates immense clarity with a surfeit of energy and beguiling touches of pure orange zest on the finish. Watch out for this once released! (NM)" (8/2014) 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An expressive and broad-ranging nose offers up notes of pear, sea water, oyster shell, white peach, citrus and a soft spice nuance. There is good punch to the intensely mineral-driven middle weight flavors that culminate in an intense and markedly dry but not especially auster ...Read More » 

2012 Les Pagodes de Cos, St-Estèphe

It’s already totally integrated, solid while also very generous. (RV)" (4/2015) 88-90 points James Suckling: "This has very well-integrated tannins with dark fruits and blueberry. Medium body, with fine tannins and a pretty finish. Refined. I like the balanced fruit. Lacks some middle palate, but clean. Second wine of Cos d’Estournel."

2012 The Mascot Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

The grapes for this wine come from younger vines on the Harlan and Bond estates and is spearheaded by Bill Harlan's son, Will. From the producer: "Although I grew up running around the winery, hand-turning de-stemmers, and eating grapes off the vines in our backyard, I never thought I’d discover my own passion in making wine. My family has been in the business longer than I’ve been around, but it was only a handful of years ago that curiosity led me beyond the event horizon of this world.

2007 Blankiet "Paradise Hills Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Paradise Hills Vineyard Proprietary Red (60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot) exhibits abundant notes of espresso, chocolate, creme de cassis, blackberry, forest floor and graphite. Full-bodied, dense and rich, it is just beginning to reveal some secondary nuances as well as complexity. There are 940 cases of this big, rich 2007 that should continue to drink well for two decades. (RP)" (12/2010) 94 points Vinous: "Full medium ruby. Some slightly porty high tones to the aromas and flavors of black plum, espresso, licorice, violet and tar. Wonderfully suave, sweet ...Read More » 

2005 Peter Michael "Belle Côte" Knights Valley Chardonnay

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Chardonnay Belle Cote is always a more exotic wine. There are 2,200 cases of the 2005 Chardonnay Belle Cote, a wine with undeniable notes of crushed stones, white peach, orange, nectarine, and quince. Medium to full-bodied, with zesty acidity, stunning minerality, and a firm structure, this is a gorgeous, French-styled Chardonnay that should drink nicely for up to a decade. This 121-acre estate with 114 producing acres of vineyard all located in Knight’s Valley continues to be at the top of their game and I can’t recommend the wines highly enough. (R ...Read More » 

2004 Domaine William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru "Les Preuses"

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This brilliant effort is evolving very much along the lines that I originally expected that it might and it has arrived on the front edge of full maturity. The elegant and highly complex nose is wonderfully classy and it clearly speaks of its origins as do the rich yet delineated medium-bodied flavors brimming with a subtle minerality and outstanding length. About the only nit is that the finish of this most recent bottle is perhaps not quite as persistent as I remember but overall, this is flat out terrific. I would continue to hold this for another yea ...Read More » 

2002 Domaine William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru "Bougros - Côte de Bouguerots"

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "The subtle hint of wood spice this displayed in its youth has now been completely absorbed which gives full rein to the wonderfully complex nose of minerals, white flowers and a hint of crushed oyster shells that introduces muscular, powerful, deep and broad flavors that are blessed with superb length and terrific vibrancy. Those that may doubt that Bougros merits its grand cru status need only experience this wine to be persuaded. A great effort that is drinking perfectly now."

1996 Domaine Denis Mortet Gevrey-Chambertin "En Motrot"

2003 Domaine Andre Brunel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

According to Robert Parker, Andre Brunel is: " of Chateauneuf du Pape's most erudite and forward-looking proprietors." As the owner of Les Cailloux, one of the appellation's stars, he makes mind-blowing Chateauneufs, which sell for mind-blowing prices. Under his own name, things are little more down to earth price wise, but the wine is still spectacular, offering up loaks of sweet, velvety grenache fruit and a rich, lush, nearly tannin-less finish.

Just bottled two weeks ago, it’s a killer value in Napa Valley Cabernet offering loads of ripe cassis and blackberry fruit, hints of oak and white chocolate, medium-bodied richness, and a sexy, layered, elegant style.

2013 Andrew Will "Sorella" Horse Heaven Hills Red Blend (Previously $70)

95 points Wine & Spirits: "Inky and dark when first poured, Chris Camarda’s top selection in 2013 feels massive at first pass; it’s mostly Cabernet drawn from the old-vine blocks at Champoux. With air its flavors turn a corner, as much savory as dark-fruited, leaning toward crushed pink peppercorn and ground sumac, with textures that seem to reflect that vine age in the finesse of their suave tannins. Those tannins carry a dusty minerality that is saturating but not heavy in the least. Cellar, then serve with beef tenderloin."

2014 Domaine Vincent Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru "La Forest"

(2/2016) 94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is more restrained still, indeed so much so that the nose only reluctantly reveals its notes of classic Chablis aromas that include green fruit, iodine, tidal pool and oyster shell. There is outstanding volume and almost painful intensity to the medium-bodied flavors that brim with a fine minerality before concluding in a stony, long and impeccably well-balanced finale where once ag ...Read More » 

2017 Susana Balbo "Signature" Malbec Rosé Mendoza
