One of our most popular sparklers is now available in magnums! Mas Codina is a 40 hectare estate in Penedès which dates back to 1681. This Brut Reserva Cava was hand-harvested from 25 to 40-year-old vines and estate bottled. Vines are planted in calcareous and sandy clay soils that keep the wine minerally and lively. The wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle, and is aged on its lees for a minimum of two years before disgorgement. Varietals include Macabeo, Xarel-lo, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 100% hand riddled as well! Since we direct impo...

96 points James Suckling: "Lovely black-cherry, lavender and rose-petal character on the nose. Full body and firm, tight tannins that add structure and depth. Extremely long and intense. Excellent. Try after 2021." (09/2019)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times since release, the 2009 Pontet Canet is one of those magical efforts that wine lovers encounter far too infrequently. From one of the greatest vintages for the region ever, this deep, saturated purple-colored effort offers an incredible bouquet of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, damp earth, and graphite. This gives way to a full-bodied, powerful Pauillac that carries a massive amount of sweet fruit yet stays light and beautifully balanced on the palate. Wi...

96 points Wine Spectator: "Dramatic, with its ripe, rich, plush core of exotic currant, anise, cedar, vanilla and berry notes that are enormously complex on the finish. Delicious. (JL)" (02/2000) 94 points Decanter: "This was the last vintage made in the Mondavi winery, and they go out on a high. A clear touch of caramel, this is silky smooth and swirling with gourmet spice, lifted up by a touch of crushed fresh mint on the finish. Again the tannins are striking in their construction and soft texture. 30 days skin contact, the growing season here saw a...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The assemblage of the 2015 Cotes du Rhone includes only 50% Grenache, with the balance made up of 20% Syrah, 15% Carignan, 10% Cinsault and 5% Counoise. Perhaps as a result, it displays ample complexity on the nose and palate, with scents and flavors reminiscent of thyme, lavender and bay leaf alongside cherry and red berry fruit. It's medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, dry finish that elevates it well above ordinary. No, it's not a massive blockbuster, but it's a fine, elegant, unoaked table wine at a...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a big, tannic, midnight black Cabernet, rude in youth and barely drinkable. The tannins are powerful enough to lock down the palate. The grapes, grown in Calistoga, are very ripe in blackberries, currants and dark chocolate, but those tannins are stubbornly astringent. Almost old-fashioned in toughness despite very high alcohol, it’s a curiosity that seems likely to develop in the cellar, but with so little evidence of past vintages, all bets are off." (04/2012) Wine Spectator: "This offers a strong minty-anise edge ...

97 points James Suckling: "A tight and focused Le Vigne with strawberry, orange-peel and floral aromas and hints of hazelnuts. Not giving it all now. Full-bodied, very intense and focused. Extremely long and polished, tannic finish. Drink in 2023 or onwards." (01/2019) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe black-skinned berry, pipe tobacco, ground clove and star anise lead the way on this full-bodied red. The smooth, tightly knit palate offers succulent black cherry, cranberry compote, coconut and espresso alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. A licorice no...

2016 Figeac, St-Émilion (1.5L)
Top Pick!
100 points Vinous: "The 2016 Figeac was bottled at the end of July 2018, since Frédéric Faye wanted to give the wine more time in barrel to develop more harmony. The stunning 24-carat bouquet rivets you to the spot with brilliant delineation and mineral-rich red fruit that articulates its terroir as well as any Right Bank you will find. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, perfect acidity, wonderfully integrated new oak and enormous depth toward the fresh, pencil-box- and cedar-infused finish. This is a classic Figeac, up there with the 1947 a...

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Woodland berry, iris, menthol and star anise aromas slowly take shape on this elegantly structured, savory red. Enveloping and delicious, the focused palate delivers raspberry compote, dried black cherry, licorice and cinnamon alongside polished, fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lends tension and keeps it balanced. Drink 2020-2030. KO" (10/2019) 96 points Vinous: "Sandrone's 2015 Barolo Aleste is a total stunner. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha, lavender and spice are all beautifully framed by ripe, silky tannins. Crea...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking at the 2009 Cumulus Vineyard #3, it is an interesting blend of 80% Syrah, 14% Grenache and 6% Roussanne that spent 30 months in 30% new French oak. Offering up lively black fruits, pepper and roasted meat-like aromas on the nose, it’s a total knockout on the palate and has layers of richness that stay perfectly focused. Seamless, layered and long, with sweet tannin, it will continue to thrill for 10-12 years. Drink now-2025. (JD)" (08/2013) 96 points Vinous: "The 2009 Next of Kyn - No. 3 comes across as...

Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungent fruit as well as a real spicy and wild quality. As with many of the best Riojas, this wine is quite delicious right now if you want to drink some bottles wh...

2010 Sea Smoke "Southing" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (1.5L)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Firmly tannic, with a rich, ripe core of earth-laced wild berry and raspberry flavors, this gains depth and complexity on the long, detailed finish, reverberating with flavors. (JL) " (04/2013) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aggressive now, this wine is big, distinguished by deep, pure flavors of red currants, sweet sandalwood, persimmons, cola and baking spices. But it needs time for all of the parts to knit together. *Cellar Selection*" (03/2013) K&L Notes: One of the Central Coast's cult Pinots. The fruit comes entirely f...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Bright, with cherry, damson plum and raspberry coulis flavors streaming through, flanked by floral and rooibos tea hints and carrying through a racy, sanguine-tinged finish that is sneakily long. Well done. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM)" K&L Notes: One of our most popular direct imports, the price-to-quality ratio we've found in these wines year after year is simply unbeatable. Our customers have come to rely on this family-run winery to provide great quality, drinkability and value. The 2014 was t...

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby. Deep aromas of red and black fruits, violet, gunflint, licorice and bitter chocolate, complemented by a sexy oak-derived note of hickory smoke. Large-scaled and sweet, but with terrific precision and refinement to the flavors of dark berries, chocolate, licorice and minerals. Finishes polished and long. Not as opulent or exotic as the 2009, but offers exceptional sweetness and size while managing to maintain impressive verve and thrust. A great 2010. (ST) 96+" (07/2013)

2015 Castello di Banfi "Poggio alle Mura" Brunello di Montalcino (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
97 points James Suckling: "This is a pure and beautiful Brunello with super fine and abundant tannins that are comprehensive and expansive. Builds on the palate. Full body. Round and firm with beautiful fruit and length. Lively and vivid. From organically grown grapes. Needs a year or two to soften, but already gorgeous." (10/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Castello Banfi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio alle Mura offers a distinct identity that is recognized by the natural thickness and density of the wine. Warm vintage condition...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "You just can't beat the purity of the bouquet here: cherries, red licorice, blue flowers and currants. It's all stunning. Il Marroneto's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a light garnet color with faint ruby highlights. The wine never veers from its lanes, sticking to an absolutely traditional and fresh expression from the appellation. It offers a lean to medium-weight mouthfeel with radiant fruit flavors--think pure cherry fruit. Fruit is harvested from a five-hectare parcel at 300 meters above sea level with...
Price: $229.99

94 points James Suckling: "So many spices line the nose here including cinnamon, cardamom, aniseed and walnuts. But there’s no shortage of red plums and dried cherries either. Balanced and suave, this is a sophisticated Brunello with a sleek frame of tannins and subtle yet persistent acidity. Drink in 2021." (10/2019) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Castello Banfi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is fragrant and bright. Aromas of wild cherry, blackberry and plum emerge from the glass with spice, tar and licorice following close in tow. The uni...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Barbaresco is a tight and beautiful wine that will require more time to unwind and soften. This beautifully balanced vintage is characterized by a tight inner core of fruit that underlines the graceful aging capacity of these wines. The 2016 is shaping up to be one destined for long cellar aging. Now in its youth, the wine offers wild berry, rose and licorice aromas. (ML)" (06/2019) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Enticing aromas of violet, woodland berry, loose vineyard soil, wild mint and a hint of spear...

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The flagship is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon mostly from Champoux with the balance from Palengat and Wallula vineyards. Crème de cassis, graphite, black licorice, unsmoked tobacco, and hints of chocolate and emerge from this beauty and it continues to gain depth and nuance with time in the glass. Full-bodied, deep, and layered with an incredible purity and elegance on the palate, it's already accessible but has more than enough tannin, depth, and balance to evolve for two decades or more."

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This monopole bottling from the coveted biodynamic vineyard begins with lush, intense and inviting aromas of dark boysenberry paste, wild mint, star anise and shaved nutmeg.

2010 La Rioja Alta "904" Gran Reserva Rioja (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In 2002 very small yields produced only about 3,000 cases at 14.7% natural alcohol and a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc. This wine is going from strength to strength since I first tasted it prior to bottling. Now a perfect wine, the incredible perfume of blueberries, black raspberries and cassis, along with white flowers and camphor is extraordinarily fragrant and intense. That is easily matched by the magnificent full-bodied richness and compellingly layered mouthfeel of this wine that is...

93-94 points James Suckling: "Very tight and direct with lots of limestone and salt aromas and flavors. Full body and firm and silky tannins. Tightly wound. Impressive." (04/2018) 94 points Vinous: "Just as it was en primeur, the 2017 Barde-Haut possesses notable richness and power, while retaining a good bit of freshness. Inky dark fruit, cloves, licorice, chocolate and menthol are pushed forward here. Racy and voluptuous in the glass, the 2017 is positively gorgeous today. It should drink well with minimal cellaring. (AG) 94+" (03/2020) 90-93 point...

89-91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a firmly structured wine, dominated by solid tannins. Ample acidity and fruit concentration suggests it should age well, and be ready to drink from 2022."

(02/2019) Vinous: "The 2016 La Roque de By has an understated bouquet that demands encouragement: blackberry, graphite with a touch of stewed black tea.

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Truly great stuff, this wine performed at a three-digit level both in the horizontal tasting of 2005s in Baltimore, as well as in Montreal at this mini-vertical. This sensational, opaque, bluish/purple wine offers up notes of vanillin, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, plus a touch of licorice. The wine hits the palate with a thunderous cascade of ripe, rich, concentrated fruit. It is full-bodied, multidimensional and layered. The tannins are beautifully integrated but still present, and the wood...

95 points Vinous: "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain offers good density, but in more of a medium-bodied style that is quite a bit more approachable than is the norm here. A whole range of inky Howell Mountain fruit, graphite, grilled herb, licorice, spice, chocolate, and lavender nuances open up in a brooding, resonant Cabernet that needs a few years in bottle to start drinking well. There is plenty of the structure readers have come to expect from Dunn, but less youthful austerity, which is not a bad thing at all. (AG) 95+" (01/2020)

Incredible depth of fruit, building tannins, no hard edges, and a finish to die for are all part of the package."

Its deep purple color is followed by a classy bouquet of ripe black cherries, cassis, graphite, licorice, and crushed rocks. Deep, medium to full-bodied, with beautiful mid-palate and ripe, silky tannins, it's a beautiful success for the estate, which appears to be firing on all cylinders today thanks to the talented team of David Suire and Nicolas Thienpont!"

1990 Bel-Air Lagrave Haut Medoc (1.5L)
Top Pick!
This little-known property makes super-value, old-school wines. Clive Coates sings its praises in the Wines of Bordeaux: "The vineyard, in the process of being enlarged, lies on the Grand Poujeaux plateau. The estate, which has belonged to the same family for 150 years, is run on biological lines, the wine being matured in one-third new oak. There is more character and less of a four-square tendency here than is found at many of its neighbors. A wine to watch."

95 points John Gilman: "I remember well selling (and drinking) the 1986 Único when it was first released back in the 1990s, but I had somehow missed the 1985 vintage. This wine was included generously by John Chapmen at our New York tasting, as an “addition” to be tasted blind after we had worked through our lineup of known vintages, and it was excellent.

2006 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (1.5L)
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Enthusiast: "As so often with Lafite, it is power that marks this wine. That, and density of texture. The additional element in this vintage, and at this stage of the wine's development, is a dominant wood element. The vanilla and tannins from the wood match well with the concentrated tannins of the fruit, which is dark, dense and tight. This is a wine for long-term aging: in 15 years this will have superb richness. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (03/2009) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Plum, sweet tobacco and blackberry aromas follow through to a...
