93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Randall Grahm's annual Rhône ode delivers authenticity, beginning with tarry aromas of singed meat, dried red plums, crushed rocks, charred wood and a hint of blood. The blend of 57% Grenache, 17% Cinsault, 16% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah is visceral on the palate with its bloody and dried meat flavors, yet with snappy red fruit that stays vibrant into the rusty finish.

Lifted and gracious on the palate, the 2013 offers striking depth throughout. The wine's structure is implied more than overtly stated. The inclusion of 50% whole clusters adds bracing salinity and striking aromatic top notes. This is a gorgeous showing.

92 points Whisky Advocate: "New Riff’s first whiskey releases were all bottled in bond from the start—a bold move for a brand new distillery. This rye proves it was the right decision. Complex and compelling, it shows maturity while retaining liveliness and verve. Grassy and herbal on the nose, it also has orange, cedar, sassafras, rose petals, and syrupy blackberries. The medium-weight palate balances clove, cedar oil, orange, berries, bubble gum, and cinnamon, which melt into an herbaceous, nutty, chocolate-rich finish. The patient drinker is rewarded,...

Top Pick!
94 points Vinous: "Bold, rich and explosive, the 2013 Pinot Noir Las Hermanas Vineyard is a classic Sta. Rita Hills Pinot built on exuberant fruit and a real sense of flamboyance.

Even with all of its overtness, the 2013 retains striking freshness.

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark and deep aromas of black cherry, sarsaparilla, baked earth and crushed rocks show on the nose of this bottling. It's a hearty display of Grenache, offering roasted cherry and berry flavors as well as cola and cracked pepper spices. (MK)" (10/2020) K&L Notes: Despite its southerly latitude, Santa Barbara is home to the state’s coolest wine regions. The coastal mountains run east-west here rather than the usual north-south direction. The county is directly exposed to the ocean, its cold afternoon winds, and chilly night-t...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is a lovely wine from winemaker Julien Fayard. It offers the darker fruits and mineral tones of the best Coombsville Cabernets.

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Vermillion is a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon (with a few other varieties in there as well) and comes mostly from Sonoma (69%) yet with 31% from the Sierra Foothills. Made by Helen Keplinger, it has a beautiful perfume of raspberry and strawberry fruits as well as notes of white pepper and flowers. It’s ripe, seamless, and plush on the palate, with lots of Grenache sexiness, yet it stays nicely balanced and has fine tannins, all making for a beautiful wine well worth seeking out." (01/2021) ...

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Ventoux Il Etait Une Fois is the top Grenache in the lineup (there are small amounts of barrel-aged Syrah, Carignan, and Mourvèdre) and it's brought up mostly in foudre. This is another incredible looking barrel sample from this team that sports a deep purple color, notes of black raspberries, ground pepper, incense, and spice, medium to full body, terrific purity of fruit, and a layered, balanced, concentrated profile. It's going to drink nicely right out of the gate yet keep for a decade." (08/2019) 92-94 points Ro...

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Sourced from a single parcel of Syrah planted in 1955, this benchmark Ventoux red calibrates the penetration and angularity of Syrah with the intensity of Southern Rhône sun and a salty, stony minerality. A powerful wine, it's also dazzling and fresh, with chalky, finely edged tannins and a piercing, crystalline finish. Delicious young, the wine should mature well through 2030 and hold further still. *Editor's Choice* (ALI)" (10/2021) 93 points Decanter: "Plenty of intensity and forward motion, with good acidity and bite. Th...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Strong aromas of rose potpourri and sour strawberry pop on the nose of this bottling from the Coastview and Pelio vineyards, which is quite light in the glass.

2018 Domaine Gérard Tremblay Chablis Grand Cru "Vaudésir" (Previously $50) (Previously $50)
Top Pick!
90 points Vinous: "The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru has a slightly waxy, resinous nose that needs some encouragement from the glass. Eventually it offers grilled walnut and smoky notes. The palate is well balanced with a slightly honeyed texture on the entry, and lightly spiced, revealing touches of ginger and white pepper toward a finish that just needs a little more nervosité.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I loved the 2018 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County. This beauty has terrific notes of spiced orchard fruits, salted citrus, mint, and sappy herbs as well as a clean, medium-bodied, racy style on the palate." (08/2020) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tightly woven and sharp on the nose, this bottling, which sources from owner John Wagner's multiple vineyards across the region, offers aromas of grapefruit peel and Meyer lemon pith. There's a hint of dairy on the palate, where crisp Asian pear and sea-salt flavors lead into a toasty brio...

96 points Decanter: "Blackberry, star anise and juniper. Only medium-bodied for a Châteauneuf, but this has plenty of impact and intensity. Lovely bright acid line and sense of freshness from start to finish. Silky and voluptuous. (MW)" (10/2020) 93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape, all of which were tasted from barrel, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Les Safres should equal or surpass the 2018 as it has the same level of elegance and finesse, yet even better mid-palate depth and concentration. It’s beautifully done and we...

94 points James Suckling: "Super fresh, this has aromas of sliced pear and ripe melon, as well as toasted lemon peel and complex, fermentation-derived flint. The palate is flavorful and long and carries fully ripe pear and melon flavors with a smoothly layered texture. So seamless." (05/2021) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fruit tones of apple and tropical fruit firm up the midpalate and gain concentration. The balancing acidity adds lime and grapefruit, with excellent length and concentration. *Editors' Choice* (PG)" (03/2021)

92 points Vinous: "The 2017 Pinot Nero Case Via is pliant and expressive. Sweet red berry, blood orange, flowers and earthy tones flesh out in the glass. As always, the Fontodi Pinot is first and foremost a wine of Chianti Classico, especially in its acid profile and overall structural feel. The 2017 is a bit wild, but otherwise nicely done. (AG)" (09/2020)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I believe only the second vintage for this wine, the 2019 Courier White, made by California winemaker Kimberly Jones, checks in as a mix of 80% Grenache Gris and 20% Grenache Blanc sourced all from 60- to 100-year-old vines planted in schist soils. Lots of ripe lemon lime citrus, poached pear, white flowers, green almond, and toasted bread notes define this beauty, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a beautifully balanced, elegant mouthfeel, and this liqueur of rocks-like sensation on the finish. It needs air to show at its best...
