2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Cristal is a perfect wine, and Champagne simple does not get any better. This incredible wine offers a beautiful perfume of clean, crisp fruits, layers of complexity in its toasted spice and white flowers, and an utterly seamless, yet powerful style on the palate. This is a rich, decadent expression of Cristal yet it’s still crystalline and elegant, with no sensation of weight, and it just glides over the palate. Haut Couture at its finest and this majestic, profound, legendary Cristal can be drunk anytime over the comin ...Read More »

2008 Pol Roger "Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2008 Pol Roger "Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill" Brut Champagne

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the great Champagnes both for its richness and its longevity, this latest incarnation is superb. The wine's richness is linked to the ripe fruit and the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend. It also shines in the perfect balance between the texture, the minerality and the integration of the fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but it will be better from 2020 and then for many years to come. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sourced in grand cru vineyards and blending Pinot Noir wit ...Read More »

It is certainly one of the most exciting bottles of vintage Champagne in the store, from a vintage that many in the region consider the best in a generation.

2008 Clynelish 10 Year Old Signatory 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2008 Clynelish 10 Year Old Signatory 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Goddamn I love Clynelish. I kind of just want to say the word over and over. Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! It makes even better if you say it with me. The distillery was built in 1967 on the same site as the original of the same name. Due to malt shortages on Islay, the first distillery was fired back up in 1969 and produced some heavily peated malt that's now legendary, but the new distillery developed its own character and continues to produce some of the very finest malt Scotland has to offer. There's something about this weird little place o ...Read More »

2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old Signatory 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old Signatory 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Mortlach distillery is something of an enigma. Founded in 1823, their famous 2.81 times distillation technique (touted as the reason for the meaty robust flavor) was developed at the turn of the century. The vast majority (circa 95%+) of production is destined for the Johnnie Walker Blenders, where it balances the sweet highland malts and smoky Islays perfectly. One of the few Diageo single malts we've yet to actually visit, the distillery has become an icon for those in the know. For others it's a mouthful - Mort LATCH? No no, Mort LOCK!

Always a near-peerless Riesling, this new release is bone dry, structured and elegant, with savoury, nutty, autumnal notes and tangy citrus acidity.

Low yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare resulted in only 25,000 bottles of this beauty. A wine of great intensity (possibly the most concentrated wine of the vintage), this 100% Merlot boasts a dark purple color as well as a sweet perfume of mocha, caramel, black cherries, black currants, earth and forest floor.

2008 Tobermory 8 Year Old "John Milroy - K&L Exclusive" Single Refill Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This crazy little Tobermory is exactly what I love about the strange little distillery on the Isle of Mull. It was filled into a used sherry butt in 2008. This distillery sometimes gets a bad rap, in particular because the independently bottled stuff is usually filled into 4th- and 5th-fill cask. The slightly feinty style of the malt really needs some higher quality oak to be softened enough to release its complexity, but once it does it can be an absolute treat.

" (05/2012) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Monte Bello is marked by the drought vintage, which not only made a more concentrated crop but also deprived the blend of all supporting varieties, as only Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot handled the dry conditions sufficiently g ...Read More »

2008 Abreu "Cappella" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cappella bursts onto the palate with black cherries, smoke, menthol and licorice. This is a decidedly powerful, tannic Cappella that is going to need quite a bit of bottle age. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the intense, deeply expressive finish. With time in the glass, the wine’s potential becomes quite evident. In 2008 Cappella is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Petit Verdot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 4% Merlot. 97+ (AG)" (12/2011)

2008 Vérité "La Joie" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "How much fun collectors will have comparing the 2007 and 2008 La Joies over the next three decades. A blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec (48% from Alexander Valley Mountain Estate, 34% from Chalk Hill and 18% from Knight’s Valley), the 2008 has similar technical numbers to the 2007 (a pH of 3.68 and 14.4% alcohol). Wonderful notes of roasted herbs, asphalt, black truffles, blackberries, cassis, camphor and subtle oak are present in the majestic aromati ...Read More »

2008 Promise Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

From the winery: "We started with our namesake more than a decade ago when we harvested the 2004 vintage from hillside Rutherford fruit. Having a great reverence for the First Growths and other amazing wines of Bordeaux, we aspired to someday be recognized along side these renowned offerings. The intention has always been to find that magical tension between flavor, depth, balance and structure that create amazing wines. With very limited production, we have applied focused micro farming techniques, and use cooperage in all-new French oak from Darjanou, ...Read More »

2008 Next of Kyn (Sine Qua Non) "Cumulus Vineyard No. 2" Central Coast Syrah (1.5L)

96 points Vinous: "A dark, brooding wine, the 2008 Next of Kyn - No. 2 packs a serious punch. Black cherry, gravel, graphite, smoke, licorice and dark spice convey an impression of gravitas that is reinforced by the wine’s deep, vertical structure. Although the 2008 can be enjoyed now with air, it needs at least another few years in bottle to fully unwind. This retrospective tasting provided a great opportunity to revisit the first seven releases of Manfred and Elaine Krankl’s Next of Kyn. As compelling as the Krankls’ Sine Qua Non wines are, I have alwa ...Read More »

2008 Morlet "En Famille" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red-ruby. Sexy aromas of raspberry, kirsch, strawberry and smoke. Silky-sweet and seamless on the palate, showing a thicker texture and more concentration than the Coteaux Nobles, with strawberry and smoke flavors complicated by a saline nuance. Showing less of the high-pitched fruitiness of the Coteaux Nobles today but this is broader and equally fresh, spreading out impressively on the very long aftertaste. (ST)" (05/2010) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Pinot Noir En ...Read More »

2008 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac

96 points Decanter: "Another hit, although this is not as glamorous as some vintages of Mouton. The expression here is just a little more Pauillac, rather than Mouton. Layers of blackberry and grilled almonds are marked by a touch of austerity in the Cabernet which I almost never find in this wine. It remains a beautiful Mouton in a vintage where you don't always get this level of texture and expression. It's still young - we are actually nowhere near lift off yet. (JA) " (12/2017) 96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A rich wine, opulent in character. There is ...Read More »

2008 Jones Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beautiful aromas of subtle smoke, blueberries and blackberries jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple-colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon. Graphite, spring flower, blueberry and blackberry notes continue on the palate. Full-bodied with plenty of well-integrated tannin, this big, rich wine should drink well for 15+ years. (RP) 94+" (12/2010) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Crystallized dark berries, licorice, graphite and smoke on the musky, slightly candied nose. ...Read More »
