94 points Wine Spectator: "Plush, rich and impeccably structured, with floral blueberry and raspberry aromas accented by smoked pepper and complex, expressive flavors that combine mineral-tinged tannins with plump fruit. *#24 in the Top 100 Wines of 2016. Highly Recommended* (TF) " (09/2016) 91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Insistently and very confidently fixed on lightly spicy, ripe berry fruit and doing a deft balancing act between refinement and richness that allows a good deal of both, this very well-structured wine may be a bit constrained by its y...

2014 Turley "Dusi Vineyard" Paso Robles Zinfandel
Back In Stock!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From Paso Robles, the 2014 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard (planted in 1945) is the more potent of the Turley 2014s, coming in at a lofty 16% alcohol. It is not overripe, not Amarone-like, or showing any heat. This wine has plenty of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, licorice, and roasted herbs that are reminiscent of Mediterranean-styled wine, with a full-bodied mouthfeel and a heady, lush finish. This is impressive, but clearly one of the bigger-boned, larger-scaled Zinfandels in the 2014 portfolio. (RP)" (04/2016) ...

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Apricot tones with lively acidity give this rich wine a vein of freshness. Pear and white peach notes offer weight, while a lime backbone brings levity. There is a richness from the botrytis that is lifted by this wines delicious freshness." (04/2015) 98 points Wine Spectator: "A stunner, sporting tropical mango and papaya notes that glide along beautifully, while heather honey, pineapple chutney and toasted coconut flavors fill in through the finish. Delivers an amazing mouthfeel that is both creamy and in...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Clear and smoky on the nose, with stone meal and citrus/grapefruit flavors, the 2014 Riesling Graacher Himmelreich Auslese (AP #17) is sweet and piquant on the palate, as well as nicely salty in the finish. There is still a lot of CO2 in the wine, but the mineral grip in the finish reveals its true character. There is very good phenolic structure, which results in a good grip. Dr Manfred Prüm says, "2014 was a very expensive harvest. We made a brown harvest when we negative-selected all rotten grapes. We had to ...

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Léoville Poyferré is gorgeous. Dark, sumptuous and ample on the palate, it possesses remarkable depth. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, scorched earth, licorice and menthol all flesh out as this radiant, deeply expressive wine shows off its considerable pedigree. The 2014 is going to need time to fully come together, but it is super-impressive. (AG)" (02/2017) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "The wine is concentrated with tannins that come from both the firm fruit and the wood aging. It is packed with blackberry flavors that come throug...

2014 Clos Fourtet, St-Emilion
Back In Stock!
97 points Vinous: "A stunning, breathtaking wine, the 2014 Clos Fourtet is without question one of the stars of the vintage. Deep yet also wonderfully nuanced, it exudes energy and transparency. Enticing scents of violet, lavender, mint and chalk add to the wine's chiseled personality. The 2014 has gained considerable depth, volume and intensity since I tasted it from barrel as a young wine, but without losing its intensely mineral, understated personality. Today, it is exceptionally beautiful in every way. The blend is 89 % Merlot, 7 % Cabernet Sauvigno...

2014 Beau Vigne "Juliet" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Juliet has 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc added in and is a slightly larger cuvée of 535 cases, which must make the owners happy, since I liked it even more than the Romeo. This wine, which has an opaque blue/purple color to the edge of the glass, offers notes of pen ink, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur, camphor, charcoal embers, and some graphite and background oak. It is full-bodied and again has that layered, multi-tiered mid-palate and stunningly pure, rich finish with no ...

98 points James Suckling: "This is a one-off bottling of a special plot of old vines. Full body, dense and polished with a beautiful presence and balance. It's tannic wine but polished and textured. More class. Great length. Only four barrels made." (01/2018) 98 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Golden Hill emerges from a single block on the estate planted with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel, the 2014 possesses remarkable finesse and stunning beauty. The Golden Hill has a level of mid-palate dept...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Disgorged in June 2020, Ayala's newly released 2014 Brut Blanc de Blancs wafts from the glass with lovely aromas of crisp orchard fruit, honeyed pear, English walnuts and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and incisive, its ample core of fruit is underpinned by brisk acids and complemented by a pillowy mousse. After the chiseled 2013, this is a precise but somewhat more generous, enveloping wine. Even if that makes it quite approachable today, it will really come into its own when it picks up more...

100 points Sam Kim: "This is a compelling rendition made from 100% cabernet sauvignon sourced from one block within an estate vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels district. The gloriously expressed bouquet shows cassis, blueberry compote, cedar, cigar, violet and black olive characters. The palate is superbly concentrated and weighted, delivering exceptional depth and richness, while remaining perfectly balanced and structured by loads of fine, chalky tannins. The wine is complete and symphonic with staggering energy and drive. At its best: 2022 to 2038. " (...

94 points James Suckling: "A fine-tuned and polished gran reserva with lots of finesse and linear character. Medium body. Refined and beautiful." (07/2019) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is a developed and subtle nose reminiscent of petrol (is it mineral?), hints of iodine and sweet spices. The palate is powerful and still a little tannic, as the wine was released even earlier because they skipped one vintage. Serious, austere, faithful to its character. (LG)" (10/2020) 94 points Vinous: "Shimmering ruby-red. An intensely perfumed no...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec, there's 928 cases of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. Blackcurrants, unsmoked tobacco, graphite, and damp earth all flow from this ethereally textured, seamless, gorgeous wine that has no hard edges, excellent acidity and a great finish. It’s slightly more elegant and polished than the more powerful 2015 and will shine for 20-25 years." (12/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...

2014 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
100 points Decanter: "Hill of Grace's rival for Shiraz supremacy is surely the fabled Grange from Penfold's, which, in complete contrast, is and has always been, a multiregional blend. It's opaque in colour, with dense aromas of plums and fruitcake, cloves, raw meat, and mint cake - truly complex if rather overbearing. The palate is similarly bold and full-bodied, with immense tannins though not overblown. Robust and structured, of course, showing great energy and texture, but essentially monolithic. Very long. (SB)" (08/2019) 98 points Robert Parker's...

98 points James Suckling: "The aromas are so seductive with dried roses and berries. Tar and asphalt, too. Full bodied, very tight and powerful. Lean and long tannins. It goes on for so long. Stops and then starts over again. A curious and challenging young wine. Great." (01/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Simply put, this is a beautiful wine that unfolds slowly with amazing intensity and complexity, delivering delicate notes of violets and candied orange peel that cede softly to darker tones of licorice, dried blackberry and savory spi...

99 points James Suckling: "So much violets, licorice, pencil, flowers and currants define this on the nose before it moves to fresh mushrooms. It’s full-bodied yet compacted with tension and a compressed center palate. Incredible, fine-grained tannins and energy. The length is truly great. Should be even more beautiful in 2024. Give it time." (10/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Latour is one of the very finest wines of a vintage that favored the northern Médoc. Mingling aromas of wild berries and cassis with hints of cigar wrap...

2014 Somnium Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $180) (Previously $180)

This is nicely structured, ending with a long, lingering aftertaste that keeps repeating the berry themes. (JL)" (06/2017) K&L Notes: Somnium (which means dream in Latin) is a property that is owned by Nascar driver, author, and food and wine fanatic Danica Patrick. She partnered with winemaker Aaron Pott and began her journey into the wine world in 2009. The 2014 Napa Cabernet comes from estate vineyards on Howell Mountain, which were plan...

95 points James Suckling: "The fruit and depth of this wine is very pretty. With brightness and transparency. Plums, and cherries with dried flowers and spices. Medium to full body, bright fruit and acidity. A powerful finish. A fantastic 2014." (01/2018) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Barolo Ravera is just as impressive as it has been in the past. Sweet floral notes and layers of fruit are beautifully laced together. Over time, the 2014 has started to gain weight, but it is also starting to shut down in terms of its overall expressiveness. I wouldn't dre...

97 points James Suckling: "Incredible aromas of currants, blackberries, slate and flowers. Full-bodied yet so tight and beautiful with superb polish and brightness. The length is fantastic. Truly superb. " (02/2017) 97 points Vinous: "The 2014 Montrose is without question one of the standout wines of the vintage. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and lavender are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up in the glass. But the 2014 is a much deeper wine than just a bunch of descriptors can conjure. In 2014, Montrose is a wine of exceptional fin...

96 points Vinous: "A wine of total finesse, the 2014 La Gaffelière is gorgeous. Dark and pliant on the palate, with striking nuance, it presents a striking interplay of juicy Merlot fruit and lifted, Cabernet Franc-inflected aromatics. Silky tannins add to the wine's exceptional feel and precision. The blend is 80 % Merlot and 20 % Cabernet Franc. The 2014 spent 25-30 days on the skins, while malolactic fermentation took place partly in tank and partly in barrique. Consulting oenologists Stéphane Derenoncourt and Simon Blanchard did a fabulous job with t...

Slightly deeper and richer than the Columbia Valley Cabernet, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a smorgasbord of graphite, crushed violets, crushed rocks, cassis and dark chocolate. With incredible richness, ultra-fine tannin, no hard edges and a stacked mid-palate, give this crazy good red 2-3 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following two decades!

Aromatic nose offers high-pitched scents of lavender, almond and cinnamon. Sappy and dense, conveying a pliant texture but also an impression of weightlessness to its concentrated flavors of spiced pear, almond cake and stone. These vines are planted on white marne soil "like in Champagne, " according to Pillot. Finishes with compelling spicy perfume. (ST)" (09/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Hammell Wine Alliance "True Believer" Rhône Blend (95JD). Jeb Dunnuck: "A small step back from the total mind-blowing 2013, the 220-case 2014 True Believer is still incredible stuff and checks in as a blend of 51% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 11% Mourvèdre, 8% Petite Sirah and the rest Viognier and Roussanne. This deep ruby/purple colored beauty offers tons of ripe blackberry, currants, smoked herbs, pepper and melted licorice-like aromatics. Deep, sumptuous and decadent on the palate, with low acidity, it stays light on its feet and graceful, and certainly delivers loads of pleasure. Drink this blockbuster style beauty anytime over the coming decade or more." (08/2017)

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Bond "Pluribus" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (98JD, 97RP, 97VN, 96JS, 95WS). Jeb Dunnuck: "The gem of the 2014s is the 2014 Pluribus which comes from a 7-acre site on Spring Mountain. This incredible wine offers a full-bodied, seamless, perfectly balanced profile as well as heavenly notes of black and blue fruits, white chocolate, licorice.

Wine Enthusiast: "Lush aromas of cinnamon, black and red cherry, vanilla and toasted brioche show on this unabashedly potent and downright delicious bottling by the region's pioneering winery. Soft tannins joyously present rounded red-fruit and vanilla-cake flavors, with rich accents of cherry compote and chocolate chip cookie that are cut by streaks of bitterness and tartness. It's a voluptuous, attention-grabbing wine. (MK)" (09/2017)

Deep ruby/purple-colored, notes of sweet crème de cassis, blackberry, charcoal and toast are present in the subtle but intense aromatics.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Montrose, St-Estèphe (97JS, 97VN, 97WE, 96DC, 95JD, 95WS). Vinous: "The 2014 Montrose is without question one of the standout wines of the vintage. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and lavender are some of the many aromas and flavors that open up in the glass. But the 2014 is a much deeper wine than just a bunch of descriptors can conjure. In 2014, Montrose is a wine of exceptional finesse and polish. The late-ripening vintage allowed for perfect maturation of the tannins and resulted in a silky wine that exudes class and pedigree. The 2014 is not an obvious or bombastic Montrose, but rather a wine of sublime enchantment. Don't miss it! (AG)" (02/2017)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Domaine Thierry et Pascale Matrot Meursault 1er Cru "Charmes" (92BH, (90-92VN)). Vinous: "Strongly mineral nose shows a smoked-meat reduction.

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Realm "The Absurd" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (100JD, 100RP, 97JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, is the 2014 The Absurd, basically a choice of their finest barrels, or as winemaker and owner Benoit Touquette says, 'The crème de la crème.' This is another perfect wine equaling their incredible 2013. Yet the 2014 is slightly more forward and showy, as many 2013s are just beginning to shut down. There are 250 cases of this majestic wine that has an opaque purple color, extraordinary nose of spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry, creosote, charcoal, toast and spice. The wine has unbelievable fruit on the attack, midpalate and finish, compelling purity, texture and a finish of close to a full minute. It is (as advertised by the winery) a 'showcase of the best of Napa Valley with the freedom of expression that results from no rules.' (RP)" (12/2016)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Last of the single vineyard Côte Rôties, the La Landonne comes from a lieu-dit on the Côte Brune side of the appellation (as does the La Turque) and is 100% Syrah. It too spends four years in new French oak. The 2014 Côte Rôtie La Landonne gets my nod for the wine of the vintage and has rock star notes of black fruits, smoked meat, underbrush, and black olives. It’s medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, rich, and layered, and has more depth and length than just about every wine in the vintage. Hats off to the Guigal fam...

Plum sauce, exotic spices, white pepper, candy corn and spring flowers, it hits the palate with a broad, expansive, sexy style, ripe tannin, no weight and a blockbuster finish. It’s so well balanced and seamless, it can come across as a touch easy, yet it has terrific complexity, good mid-palate density and a great, great finish. This is what great wine is all about."

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Sine Qua Non "Capo dei Putti" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah (99JD, 98VN, 96RP). Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the reds, the extended barrel-aged 2014 Syrah Capo Dei Putti boasts an insane bouquet of cedarwood, white chocolate, caramelized meats, candle way, and assorted red and black fruits. With full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and an incredible elegance, it changed every time I came back to the glass and is a multi-dimensional, riveting red wine from California. A blend of 90% Syrah and the balance Viognier, Petite Sirah, and Grenache, partially destemmed and aged 38 months in 94% new French oak, give this beauty 2-3 years of bottle age, count yourself lucky, and enjoy bottles over the following 10-15 years."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon has a drop-dead gorgeous nose of Sichuan pepper, hoisin, peppered salami and fertile loam over a core of blackberry preserves and redcurrant jelly with touches of kirsch and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated yet still maintaining that wonderful purity and elegance that is the signature of this estate, it has layer upon layer of earthy nuances and a very long finish.

Bid on this bottle of 2014 Sine Qua Non "Testa dei Cherubini" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (99JD, 98RP, 98VN). Jeb Dunnuck: "As with the extended aged Syrah release, the 2014 Grenache Testa Dei Cherubini (80% Grenache, 15.5% Syrah, and the rest Petite Sirah and Viognier) comes all from the estate Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and spent just under 38 months in 25% new French oak, with the balance in neutral barrels (varying sizes). Layers of black raspberry, cassis, white chocolate, white flowers, and Asian spices flow to a full-bodied, supple, powerful Grenache that has silky, silky tannins, a seamless texture, no hard edges, and a finish that won’t quit. It’s already approachable, yet in my experience, this extended élevage results in a very stable wine, and I suspect this beauty will have another two decades of longevity." (10/2018)

Bid on this magnum of 2014 Cliff Lede "Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (99RP, 93JS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From obviously purchased grapes, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon looks like dark pen ink, has that inimitable and compelling aromatic expression that the To Kalon Vineyard seems to offer up – graphite, blueberry, blackberry, cassis, fruitcake and spice. With incredibly rich blue fruits, black fruits, a full body, opulent, voluptuously textured and sensational, the wine still tastes like a barrel sample, but even at that, I found it nearly impossible to spit out. This is a killer effort, a magnificent wine with a potential three-digit score with a few more years of bottle age. (RP)" (12/2016)

This wine that is full-bodied, with incredible ripeness, purity and overall equilibrium, offers up plenty of tropical fruit and citrus, white peach and pineapple. … Mark Aubert continues to set the bar incredibly high for the world-class quality of his Burgundian-styled, remarkable Chardonnays, which come from relatively cool sites spread from Rutherford in Napa Valley to the far reaches of the Sonoma Coast.

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here there are no such issues as the elegant, layered and ripe nose is completely clean while offering up notes of hazelnut, citrus, pear and acacia blossom. Once again there is fine concentration and volume to the focused, delicious and sappy medium weight flavors that terminate in a powerful, serious and beautifully persistent finale. This is one of those 2014s that should both age well but drink reasonably well young too. Worth checking out. *Outstanding*" (06/2016)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2014 Blackbird "Paramour" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (95RP, 94CG, 93JD, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another terrific example of Blackbird is the 2014 Proprietary Red Paramour, a fabulous blend of 84% Cabernet Franc, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot. The Cabernet Franc comes from the Stagecoach Vineyard. Consultant Aaron Pott said he thinks they have a magical spot for it on that large eastern Napa Valley mountain site. This is terrific stuff from the super-intense fragrance of white flowers and forest floor to the blueberry, black raspberry and graphite notes. The wine hits the palate with dazzling fruit intensity, loads of glycerin, a round, juicy, succulent mouthfeel, a layered personality and a long, supple finish. Drink it now or over the next 15+ years. (RP)" (10/2016)

Of the 2014 Larkmead "LMV Salon" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Even more prodigious is the 2014 LMV Salon. Composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc from the sandy Bale Loam soils of the 110 acres Larkmead possesses, it is a bigger boy at 14.9% alcohol but shows lots of crushed rock and wet gravel minerality, a beautiful, cedary, blackcurrant nose with notes of forest floor, allspice and soy, with more blackberry on the palate as well as some savory herbs and spice. Hints of licorice also make an appearance in this broad, fleshy, juicy and succulent style of wine meant for drinking now and over the next 20 years. (RP)" (10/2016)

Full-bodied, the wine is balanced and seamless, offering precision and focus across the mid-palate with fine-grained tannins that continue to sway with excellence before delivering a long, drawn-out finish that's simply stunning. This will be able to age for more than a decade in the cellar. (AM)" (04/2021)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bigger, richer 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petite Sirah aged 16 months in 50% new French and American casks. This is a bigger wine and close to 2% higher in alcohol at 15.5%. There are 11, 000 cases of this big, full-bodied, boisterous Cabernet Sauvignon that has a dense ruby/purple color, notes of underbrush, forest floor, tobacco leaf and oodles of blackcurrants and black cherries, with a touch of woodsmoke. The full-bodied wine hits the palate with a cascade of glycerin, fruit and purity. This is a beauty-dense, rich, and structured, but capable of lasting 20 or more years.It is hard to believe that the iconic Louis M. Martini Winery first made Napa Cabernet Sauvignon in 1933.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2014 Domaine Fontaine-Gagnard Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Caillerets" (94JG, 94VN, 93RP, 92BH). Vinous: "High-pitched perfume of white peach, pear, crushed rock, ginger and lime blossom. Painfully intense and brisk, with terrific salty mineral cut enlivening the peach and pear fruit flavors. Sharply delineated and brisk but with the density of the vintage's better example. This highly concentrated, refined premier cru finishes with terrific rising length and palate-staining minerality. Has the grip to support a long evolution in the bottle, but even today this very youthful wine has no rough edges. (ST)" (09/2016)

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 La Serra is another knockout wine from Roberto Voerzio. La Serra is a site that tends to produce nervous, slightly angular wines. In 2014, though, Voerzio manages to temper some of that tannic edge. Dark cherry and plum fruit are nicely rendered in this surprisingly silky, unctuous Barolo. Blood orange, spice, menthol and licorice grow in the glass as the wine's upper register begins to emerge over time. This is a remarkably harmonious young Barolo. (AG)" (02/2018) 94 points James Suckling: "A very fine and aromatic red with...

97 points James Suckling: "Very perfumed with black cherries and dried flowers. Some orange peel, too. Full-bodied, round and very silky. Love the finish. A beauty. Wait and try in 2021." (01/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Voerzio's exquisitely beautiful 2014 Barolo Cerequio is understated, classy and gracious, and a terrific expression of Cerequio, whose principal signatures of bright red cherry, kirsch, mint and floral notes emerge over time. The 2014 is not an obvious wine, but rather a midweight Barolo built on nuance and finesse. Hints of orange peel, c...

97 points James Suckling: "Beautifully perfumed with rose petals, violets and currant bush. Full body, very silky tannins and bright acidity. Tannins are super fine-grained. Goes on for minutes. Racy and refined. Persistent. Drink in 2025." (02/2017) 97 points Vinous: "One of the stars of the vintage, the 2014 Haut-Brion is an exceptionally beautiful and vivid wine. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, tobacco and menthol are some of the notes that run through the 2014. Just as it did from barrel, the 2014 boasts tons of opulence, intensity and richness. Drie...
