2012 Louis Roederer Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2012 Louis Roederer Brut Champagne

96 points James Suckling: "Just over two-thirds pinot noir (Verzenay) and the balance southeast-facing chardonnay from Chouilly. This has 30% of oak fermentation which has compressed the wine, lending it an air of extreme concentration. The nose is gently spicy, offering peaches and cherries as well as neat autolysis edge. The palate has a powerful, long and assertive feel, with peach and lemon pith, chalky minerals, and some grapefruit. A powerful vintage for Roederer.

2012 Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru "153rd Anniversary Cuvee" (Elsewhere $60) Top Pick!
2012 Louis Jadot Beaune 1er Cru "153rd Anniversary Cuvee" (Elsewhere $60)

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A subtle touch of wood sets off ripe and relatively elegant notes of earth, dark cherry and spice. The mid-palate is dense, serious and powerful with plenty of mouth coating sap that helps to buffer the very firm tannic spine on the moderately austere, backward and built-to-age finale. While this is presently backward it should be approachable after 6 to 8 years of bottle age though note that it should live for a very long time. For readers having a child or grandchild in 2012 this would be a good choice to buy in qu ...Read More »

This cuvée opens with a fine, pure and smoky bouquet. Delicate but firm and very mineral on the palate, this is a highly refined and finessed Champagne with lush and aromatic yet graceful cherry fruit.

2012 Clairault "Estate" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Black Label) (Previously $30)

The grapes were hand-harvested from the oldest vines on the Clairault Vineyard planted in 1976 and fermented on skins for 10 days before pressing by winemaker Bruce Drakes. The wine was matured in both new and used French oak for 10 months for textured finesse and subtle, rather than overt, cedary aromas.

A wine of great intensity, yet incredibly ethereal elegance, this light greenish gold-colored wine is full-bodied, stunningly rich, and altogether remarkable.

It's a wondrously traditional Brunello from one of the region's pioneers, also demonstrating one of the vintage's most elegant offerings.

2012 Bodegas Mas Alta "La Creu Alta" Priorat

They own a plot of very old Cariñena vines in the village of Torroja (all the rest of other vines are in the village of Vilella Alta where the winery is located), which is mixed with more Cariñena, Syrah and a pinch of Garnacha from different vineyards to make up a final blend of around 60% Cariñena, 35% Syrah and 5% Garnacha.

When first tasting the wines of Domaine de la Jaufrette, the name López de Heredia sprang to mind.

2012 Cécile Chassagne "Cuvée Gabriel" Gigondas

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Despite aging four years in demi-muids, the 2012 Gigondas Cuvee Gabriele is still tight and fresh, perhaps even a bit lean and edgy for some. A blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah that clocks in at just 13.5% alcohol, it's silky and tart, with cranberry fruit and hints of spice loaf on the dry finish. (JC)" (08/2018)

2012 Venturini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

90 points Vinous: "Medium ruby-red. Musky aromas of red cherry, blackcurrant, earth and tobacco, complicated by hints of a Partagas D4 (Cuban cigar). Bright and juicy, boasting a seamless quality and noteworthy intensity to the sweet but very fresh red and black fruit and coffee flavors. Finishes with ripe tannins, bright and juicy, with a persistent note of cigar tobacco. Made with a blend of 75% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, and 5% Molinara; these are roughly 30 year old vines planted at 250 meters above sea level. I really like the extra freshness and grac ...Read More »

2012 Castillo de Viñas Reserva Rioja (Previously $18) Top Pick!
2012 Castillo de Viñas Reserva Rioja (Previously $18)

90 points James Suckling: "A fine and easy red with cherry and light vanilla. Medium body, light tannins and a fresh finish. Shows Rioja character." (03/2018) K&L Notes: Our newest DI Rioja comes from Rioja Baja, where the climate is a bit warmer and more Mediterranean. The Garnacha is arguably the best in all Rioja, the Graciano ripens more easily and shows great promise, and Tempranillo, planted on choice parcels like they are here, is also quite good. Castillo de Viñas was a label put together for us by one of our contacts in Rioja, and is made by t ...Read More »

2012 Miguel Merino Reserva Rioja New!
2012 Miguel Merino Reserva Rioja

A longtime participant in the wine business, Miguel sold wine for wine distributors in the States as well as worked as an export manager. Miguel found success every step of the way, and then decided that rather than retire, he wanted to fulfill his dream of owning vines and making wine. Based in the Rioja Alta town of Briones, Miguel Merino makes, as he likes to put it, an "updated classic" style of Rioja, all from his own two hectares of vines and several hectares of vineyards owned by a close friend. All the fruit is from sloped vineyards (Miguel is a ...Read More »

2012 Château de Montfaucon "Vin de Monsieur Le Baron de Montfaucon" Vin de Pays du Gard

91 points Wine Spectator: "Dark and slightly gutsy, but still alluring, with lots of smoldering charcoal and roasted alder notes framing a core of dark plum, fig and blackberry paste flavors. Offers a thick coat of tobacco and fresh humus on the finish, revealing a light echo of bay at the very end. Distinctive. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Carignan, Counoise, Mourvèdre, Viognier and Clairette. Drink now through 2019. (JM)" (11/2016) K&L Notes: Château de Montfaucon's "Vin de Monsieur Le Baron" is an exceptional blend of 15 Rhône varietals harvested by h ...Read More »

2012 Screaming Eagle Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another perfect wine is the 2012 Screaming Eagle which checks in as 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. While just as good as the 2013, it’s made in a very different style and has a lush, opulent, sexy profile as well as the hallmark crème de cassis, white flowers, graphite and spice. With a silky, full-bodied, seamless texture, incredible complexity, ultra-fine tannin, and blockbuster length, this quintessential Screaming Eagle will continue drinking beautifully for 20-25 years."
