2015 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "Deeper wine from the get-go with dark violets, mocha, cassis and blackberries. The palate has suave, smooth and sturdy tannins and terrific length. Very polished and seamless with flavors of fresh black cherries, blackcurrants and blue plums. Best from 2022." (02/2018) 96 points Vinous: "The 2015 Malartic Lagravière is just as fabulous from bottle as it was from barrel. Rich, voluptuous and dramatic, it captures all of the natural intensity of the year. Black cherry, plum, mocha, chocolate, licorice and French oak build into ...

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fragrant and full bodied, this structured red has enticing aromas evoking woodland berry, balsamic aromas of pine, rose petal and exotic spice. The enveloping palate delivers crushed raspberry, succulent Marasca cherry, licorice and nutmeg alongside firm, tightly knit tannins. Fresh acidity lends tension and balance. *Editors' Choice* (KO) " (01/2020) 96 points Wine Spectator: "An opulent and complex version, boasting cherry, strawberry, cut hay, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors. Firms up nicely on the finish, with terrif...

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Underbrush, rose, new leather and camphor aromas mingle with wild berry in this fragrant, classy red. Linear and elegantly structured, the focused palate delivers juicy red cherry, spiced cranberry, star anise and cinnamon set against firm, refined tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. (KO)" (05/2021) 95 points James Suckling: "A wine with purity and integration, offering black-cherry, blueberry and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Hot stone, too. Full-bodied and very tight with integrated tannins that go on. Needs time t...

98 points James Suckling: "I love the meatiness to this wine, but also the purity of fruit; think charcuterie, prosciutto, bay leaf, capsicum, blueberries, blackcurrants and crushed stones. You just can’t get over the way this manages to deliver a powerful, muscular package with stunning finesse and poise. The tapestry of intricate texture and detail is wrought in a flashy but sincere and heartwarming style. The balance takes your breath away. Best ever from here." (11/2019) 98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Sunbaked earth, mature blackplum, fragrant blue-fl...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Produttori del Barbaresco 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Rabajà is a stunning wine. The aromas rise from the glass with purpose, clarity and extreme definition. This is indeed a very special wine, thanks to the direct and linear quality of fruit and the elegant tannins that build the long finish. The Nebbiolo grape is elevated to a beautiful plain or plateau, where it shows off its naked beauty in a clear and unobstructed manner. The wine affords us a panoramic view of the Piedmont grape, planted in the white tuffac...

2015 Turley "Rattlesnake Ridge" Howell Mountain Zinfandel
Back In Stock!
90-93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge is the deepest and most powerful of Turley's three Howell Mountain Zinfandels. Today, the huge tannins and imposing dark fruit are still integrating. Attractive mineral/savory notes add to the wine's distinctive character. I expect the 2015 will need at least a few years to be at its best. (AG)" (12/2016) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Plump and supple, with a rich and ripe core, offering notes of berry cobbler, toasted spice and licorice that glide across the finish. " (02/2017)
Price: $69.99

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Slope is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, and it’s not far off the flagship with its awesome bouquet of blackcurrants, crushed rocks, graphite, and tobacco. It's deep, concentrated, has beautiful sweetness of fruit, and the classic earthiness and minerality that common from the wines of this great estate. Aged 28 months in 75% new French oak, it can be drunk today with incredible pleasure or cellared for two decades." (06/2019) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Slope (from ...

94 points James Suckling: "A very convincing style. This has plenty to offer in terms of deeply focused blackberry and red plum fruits, but it is the structure that really impresses. Long, assertive and driving, it finishes with succulent grippy appeal. " (08/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Habemus Papam suffers only by comparison to the domaine's other micro-cuvées. It still delivers lovely cherry and stone fruit notes, medium to full body and ample concentration. The tannins are a bit grippier in this wine...

2015 Martinelli "Lolita Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel
Back In Stock!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "At the higher end of the alcohol spectrum, these Martinelli Zinfandels are powerful wines for sure, but I hasten to add that they are beautifully balanced and in terms of flavor, tannin and complexity, they represent the pinnacles of ripeness in every sense. Medium garnet colored, the 2015 Zinfandel Lolita Ranch sports notes of baked black cherries, dark chocolate, Indian spices and potpourri with savory hints of grilled meat and yeast extract. Big, buxom and gloriously full-bodied (and then some), the tannins ar...

95 points Decanter: "This small cooperative goes from strength to strength under the dynamic management of Aldo Vacca. Montestefano is one of the top sites in the commune of Barbaresco. The nose is still reserved, but there are rich red fruits lurking. Very concentrated on the palate, this is lush and approachable, although one senses there is much in reserve, with excellent ageing potential. It's taut and imposing, with a finish that's tangy and persistent. (JB)" (01/2020) 94 points Vinous: "The 2015 Barbaresco Riserva Montestefano rounds out this ser...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Saintes Vierges is the most flattering of Santa Duc's current releases, offering lushness and generosity on the palate, notes of cherries and licorice, creamy-supple tannins and a mouthwatering finish. It's a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Counoise. Gigondas-based Yves Gras has quietly grown his holdings in Châteauneuf du Pape to six hectares, from which he's producing four separate cuvées. I'm sure it will hurt some feelings to say an outsider like Gras is producing some of th...

2015 Livio Sassetti Pertimali "Mulino" Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
93 points Vinous: "This is the first vintage of the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Mulino from Pertimali, a lower-elevation cru that’s noted for the high level of marine fossils found in its soils. Here I find a classic display of dried roses, black cherry, dusty earth and freshly-tanned leather. It envelopes the palate in fleshy textures offset by a mix of tart wild berries, zesty acids and savory spice, as building tension puckers the cheeks, seeding them with fine-grained tannins. This comes across as structured yet remarkably balanced, and it’s a beauti...

94 points James Suckling: "This has an array of darker berry and plum fruits with a brambly, lightly spicy edge, too. The palate delivers impeccably fresh, lithe and detailed tannin texture, as well as blue fruit flavors. Juicy and energetic. Long finish. Try from 2020." (08/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Pied de Baud, a blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault, offers compelling scents of rose petals and raspberries on the nose. While not as richly textural as some of the other cuvées, it's ...

94-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2015 Gigondas Hautes Garrigues (60/40 Grenache and Mourvèdre) is a beauty boasting killer notes of dark fruits, crushed rocks, pepper, garrigue and scorched earth. This seriously good 2015 has building richness, a stacked mid-palate and a huge finish, all suggesting short-term cellaring will be your friend. It will keep for two decades of more." (10/2017) 93-95 points Vinous: "Full ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of red and dark berry liqueur, incense, spicecake and candied flowers show outstanding energy and clarity....

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Smoky, earthy anise and dark-chocolate aromas give way to concentrated and layered black-plum, clove and blackberry flavors as this full-bodied wine expands on the palate. Its texture is richly tannic and the mouthfeel is generous, prolonging the lush flavors on the finish. A perennial standout, this wine has proven it can age well. *Top Cellar Sections 2018* (JG)" (11/2018) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "A selection of Terre Rouge’s best barrels, this syrah ages in mostly new French oak for two years, then in bottle prior to re...
