Heitz Cellar "Ink Grade" Napa Valley Port (375ml)

As Wall Street Journal wine writers Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher advise, "If you ever see Heitz Cellars' Ink Grade Port...grab it!" (from "Give Sweets a Chance," 10/09).

2011 Justin "Obtuse" Paso Robles Dessert Red 375ml

From Justin: "Made using the same method as a traditional Port, Justin Obtuse instead features Cabernet Sauvignon, our hallmark grape variety. A portion of the natural sugar from the grapes is left unfermented for a touch of sweetness that complements the varietal flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon. With only a few months in barrel for some depth, Obtuse has a crisp, clean finish when compared to traditional versions of this type of wine. [2011] Tasting Notes: "Appearance: Deep ruby purple core with violet rim. Aroma: Blackberry and blackcurrant jam, black c... Read More »

2012 Martinelli "Jackass Hill" Russian River Valley Muscat Alexandria (375ml) (Previously $30)

Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Muscat Alexandria Jackass Hill is a bit of an oddity, as it emerges from Muscat vines that are planted throughout Jackass Hill, suggesting the white grapes might have once been part of a field blend. This exotic, moderately sweet dessert wine offers lovely freshness in its floral and tropical infused flavors." (1/2015) K&L Notes: From the steepest non-terraced vineyard in Sonoma County, the vineyard is named for the kind of person it takes to farm grapes on it. The Muscat of Alexandria vines are over 100 years old and actually interspersed amongst similarly... Read More »

2013 Joseph Phelps "Eisrébe" Napa Valley Late Harvest (375ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Light and floral, this subtle dessert wine is made from Scheurebe grapes, more often found in Austria than California. It provides this wine with fresh apricot and honey on the palate, lingering yet low enough in alcohol and power to be enjoyed as either apéritif or digestif, its sweetness greatly restrained." (3/2015) K&L Notes: This is 100% estate-grown Scheurebe from Phelps' Spring Valley Home Ranch Vineyard in St. Helena. From the winery: "The 2013 Eisrébe has aromatic layers of honey, apricot, marmalade and tropical fruits. The texture is viscous with flavors of... Read More »

2012 Dashe "Late Harvest" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (375ml)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Zinfandel Late Harvest has 9.5 grams of residual sugar and smells somewhat like an Amarone. Usually I enjoy these Late Harvest Zins after they have some age on them, but this 2012 offers good fresh fruit and purity. Drink it over the next decade. (RP)" (12/2013) K&L Notes: According to Robert Parker: "This boutique producer has one of the more innovative back labels where you can peel off the name and appellation of the wine, much like a postage stamp. I am surprised more wineries haven’t utilized this creative technology. In any event, it’s what’s in the bo... Read More »

2006 Pessagno Hames Valley Port

This port from the Hames Valley in the foothills of California's Santa Lucia Range. The soils in Hames Valley are shale and loam, and its hot weather makes growing traditional Portuguese varietals very appealing.

Winemaker Steve Pessagno describes this vintage offering thusly: "Blackberries, raisins, black pepper and licorice typify this classic Port.

2009 Williams Selyem "Vista Verde Vineyard" San Benito County Port (375ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark and viscous, this greets the nose with expected aromas of raisin and prune, but rises above with nutmeg, cardamom, clove and sleek graphite notes. The first impression on the palate is sweet plum nectar, but the grippy tannins prove seductive and the ripping acidity keeps it quaffable. The fascinating finish is all about chocolate-covered nuts." (5/2015)
