2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Dom Pérignon is the first time the estate has released a wine out of order (the 2009 was released before the 2008) but the estate loved the wine so much they felt it warranted additional aging. This is a rich, powerful wine that still shows incredible purity and elegance, with a stacked, concentrated feel on the palate. It’s rare to find such a mix of ripe, pure, concentrated fruit paired with this level of purity, focus, and precision. This is a legendary Dom that surpasses all the great vintages of Dom I have experience...

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

2008 Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne
Back In Stock!
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Enthusiast: "While still young, this Champagne has all the makings of greatness. Produced from grand cru vineyards, it already balances ripe white fruits with a firm structure that will age well. It’s relatively dry and has plenty of acidity, which will also aid in the longevity.. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2019) K&L Notes: This all Grand Cru blend, which is composed of 50% each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, is the best I have ever tasted from Laurent-Perrier, and should go the distance if you decide to cellar it. Don't miss this fantasti...

2008 Le Brun de Neuville "Grand Vintage" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Almost entirely Chardonnay, with just a whisper of Pinot Noir, this is a dry Champagne. It is crisp, lively, steely and with great intensity. The apple and lemon flavors are just a part of this impressive wine that could age longer. Drink from 2019. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2017) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A firm version, with a light and lacy mousse carrying pretty hints of ripe black cherry, apple blossom, chalk and biscuit. Clean-cut on the moderate finish. (AN, Web-2017)" K&L Notes: This classic Sézanne Champagne is...

94 points James Suckling: "This has seen more than six years of ageing in the cellar and has attractive concentration and nicely played complexity. The nose is as fresh as you'd expect from Lanson with all yellow grapefruit and lemon but some pastry too. The palate, meanwhile, has a refreshing sweep of acid-driven, lemon fruit and is super pure, fresh and long. A great-value wine here. " (10/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In all probability the finest rendition of this cuvée since 1996, Lanson's 2008 Brut Vintage Gold Label is an impre...

2008 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne
Back In Stock!
99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 La Grande Année is another brilliant 2008 that delivers the goods. Straight-up awesome notes of stone fruits, white flowers, honeysuckle, and an incredible, liquid rock-like minerality all emerge from the glass, and it develops more nuance, spice, toasted bread, and an almost Alsatian Riesling-like petrol character over the course of the evening. It’s a full-bodied, rich, powerful Champagne, yet like the top 2008s, it has brilliant precision, purity, and focus. It’s unquestionably one of the finest versions of this cuvée ...

2008 Veuve Clicquot "Gold Label Reserve" Brut Champagne
Back In Stock!
93 points James Suckling: "Attractive creamy pastry notes and pithy lemon citrus fruits on offer here. There's also a gently nutty edge of autolysis, all locked in nice and fresh here. The palate's bright, crisp and has attractive fresh lemon and peach-fruit flavours. It's a really tidy and more chiselled vintage for this wine." (08/2016) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A vivid version, like raw silk on the palate, with a powerful frame of acidity well-meshed with saline-tinged, minerally underpinnings and flavors of black currant, apricot, almond biscotti ...

2008 Billecart-Salmon Extra Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
97 points Decanter: "A blend of 65% Pinot Noir consisting of Premier and Grand Crus from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallee de la Marne and 35% Chardonnay from the Cote des Blancs. Significantly, this has nine years ageing on its lees (longer than some Prestige Cuvees), the 2008 was first released onto the global market back in March 2019. With an Extra Brut dosage of 4g/l, this is a highly expressive, confident and convincing interpretation of the vintage. Right now, it is youthfully sharp and focused with fine salinity, depth, acidity and balance, an...

If you have enjoyed the wines of Lallement, Bollinger and Krug in the past, we think you will very much enjoy Michel Arnould. They are bold, masculine Champagnes with plenty of toasty flavor. This is a blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay, entirely from estate vineyards in the Grand Cru of Verzenay. Verzenay is the northernmost of all the Grand Crus in this northernmost of French wine regions. The whole village faces north, the wrong way, away from the sun, and yet miraculously ripens Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Some say it's because of a meteor tha...

2008 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is comprised of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest six other grapes - Merlot, Malbec, St. Macaire (how often do you see that!), Petit Verdot, Carmenere, and Cabernet Franc - and is aged 20 months in three-fourths French oak. It has a dense purple color, a wonderful, crystalline nose of crushed rock, camphor, creme de cassis and spring flowers, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. The tannins are moderately high, but they are soft and well-integrated. This is a wine of tremendo...

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Dom Pérignon is the first time the estate has released a wine out of order (the 2009 was released before the 2008) but the estate loved the wine so much they felt it warranted additional aging.

2008 Chappellet "Pritchard Hill Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
95 points James Suckling: "I am a big fan of this wine every year. The 2008 shows beautiful aromas of dried flowers and spices with chocolate underneath. The palate is full and very velvety with lots of intensity and flavor in the finish. Racy, elegant and finesse are words that come to mind to describe this wine. Best in two or three years." (06/2011) 93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "As one would expect of this wine based on its past performances in our tastings, it is tight and deep at one and the same time, and for all of its concentrated fruit in bot...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made in a more masculine style, the 2008 Dominus has all of that along with bigger body and more structure, fat, density and texture. Both are brilliant wines and they represent the finest back-to-back vintages for Dominus since 2001 and 2002 or 1990 and 1991. Both the 2007 and 2008 Dominus should drink well for 25-30 years. (RP)" (12/2010) Decanter: "Now 30 years old, this venture is a Californian classic. But the real success is how Christian Moueix, proprietor of Pétrus, so fine-tuned his approach with Caber...
Price: $249.99

93 points Wine Spectator: "A well-cut, minerally version, with a firm backbone of acidity and a lacy mousse, layered with flavors of baked currant, toast and lemon curd. Offers a racy, spiced finish. (AN)" (10/2017) 92 points Decanter: "Veuve have re-introduced partial barrel maturation with the 2008 vintage; five percent of the wines were aged in French oak casks to add seasoning and complexity to the final blend. There is a slight bronze tinge to the wine, with a subtle nose of tangerine and red berries and some oak creaminess too. The palate display...

Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, unmarred by the intrusion of oak--which he hasn't used in production since 1986. He was also the first producer in the appellation to begin domaine bottling. The Vieilles Vignes, from a single plot of Cabernet Franc planted in 1934, is prized for its power, depth and grace. This flagship wine is meant to age, and the large format bottle will have helped to preserve freshness.

2008 Sine Qua Non "B 20" California Syrah
Top Pick!
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Very classy and suave, with a personality that grows on you, the 2008 Sine Qua Non Syrah B 20 is 92% Syrah, 6% Grenache, and 2% Viognier that was aged in 60% French oak for 26 months. Sporting a deep, opaque purple color, it slowly unwinds in the glass to shows layered, decadent aromas of blackberry, cassis style fruits that are intermixed with notions of underbrush, smoked meat, and chocolate. The purity, as well as the depth and focus are the defining traits here, and on the palate, the wine is on the lighter side of full-bodied...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Openly fruity, rich, lush and layered, serving up a complex mix of plum, blackberry, black licorice and spices. Full-bodied and supple-textured, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the core flavor themes. *Collectibles* (JL)" (12/2010)
Price: $119.99


90 points Wine Spectator: "Sweet cherry, raspberry, spice and earth aromas and flavors play off the open texture and round profile of this red, with a firm structure buried underneath. Fine length. Best from 2012 through 2022." (05/2011) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An elegant, pure and pretty nose offers up notes of both red and dark berry fruit aromas as well as hints of smoke and earth, the latter of which can also be found on the rich, generous and round middle weight flavors that are delicious and focused though mildly tangy on the acceptably persi...

2008 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend
Back In Stock!
98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I had previously reviewed the 2008 Saxum James Berry Vineyard from a tasting at the winery, so it was enlightening to get to sit down, and drink through a full bottle. A blend of 52% Grenache, 31% Mourvèdre, and 17% Syrah, aged for 19 months in puncheons and smaller barrels, it presents an unabashedly Californian profile that oozes sweet fruit and flesh, but balances it with a seamless, weightless texture and perfect balance. Notes of sweet crème de cassis, raspberry, smoked meats, and flowers all soar from the glass and are follo...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Entre Deux Meres wraps around the palate with serious depth and power. Plums, mocha, espresso and spices all jump from the glass in this sexy, voluptuous wine. Round, sweet and inviting, the 2008 Entre Deux Meres captures the best qualities of the year. Although not super-complex, the 2008 is flat out delicious and incredibly appealing. (AG)" (12/2012) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Moderately saturated ruby-red. Enticing aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate...

98 points Decanter: "This takes a heartbeat to kick in, and then the weight and impact of this wine slowly kicks in. Those Cabernets have lift and punch, and although it's not ethereal like the Ausone or even the Lafite, it has power, structure, impact and kick, and you know it's going the distance. It has really lovely menthol notes which play around on the finish, preceded by layers of cassis and liquorice. It's more accessible than many Latours at 10 years old - just give it another couple of years to fully get into its stride. (JA)" (12/2017) 96 po...

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Once again, Insignia takes it accustomed place near the very head of the class, and, as usual, it is one of the most polished and well-balanced Cabernets to be had. That is not to say that it in any way lacks for authority, richness or size, for it is an intense and impressively filled wine, and it vies for top honors in a vintage that has provided more than a few noteworthy wines. It drives home the point that big wines can be wonderfully balanced, and, while delicious even now, it will not reach its peak for a good many y...

98 points Vinous: "The 2008 Clos des Goisses is just as impressive today as it has always been. Rich, dense and explosive, the 2008 exists in three dimensions, with remarkable textural depth and vertical intensity to burn. Clos des Goisses is notoriously slow to develop. Readers who can be patient will be treated to a spectacular Champagne. The blend is 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, which makes the 2008 a rare Clos des Goisses that favors Chardonnay. About 75% of the lots were fermented in oak. (AG)" (07/2018) 96 points Decanter: "Shimmering pale ...

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. *No. 4, Top Cellar Selections of 2018* (RV)" (12/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Released in October of last year, Pol ...


2008 Trimbach "Cuvée Frédéric Émile" Riesling Alsace
Back In Stock!
96 points Decanter: "This prestige cuvée is named after the man who started this Alsace wine dynasty, now in the hands of the 13th generation. Always a near-peerless Riesling, this new release is bone dry, structured and elegant, with savoury, nutty, autumnal notes and tangy citrus acidity. It's poised, powerful, complex and concentrated, with a seam of brisk yuzu-like acidity to complement the creamy nougat notes. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030. (TG) " (02/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Riesling Cuvée Frédéric Emile is now in t...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep garnet-purple in color the 2008 Grange reveals a truly decadent nose with tons of spices, fruit cake and black & blue fruit compote notes along with nuances of chocolate and potpourri. The full and rich, multi-layered palate has a little oak still showing, it is going through a little bit of a structural stand-out stage, but it doesn't detract on the long and complex finish. It still needs a good few years to develop, though this very opulent, expressive Grange shows the very best of this vintage and t...


92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Barolo Cannubbio exhibits all of the classic notes typically found in wines from this site. Sweet, open floral notes lead to tobacco, leather, anise and spices as this gorgeous Barolo shows off its class. There is more than enough fruit to balance the tannins, but the 2008 remains tight and in need of further cellaring. Still, there is so much to admire in this classy, mid-weight Barolo. In 2008, the Cannubbio is all class and finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG)" (10/2012) Jancis Robinson: "...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Mast Vineyard possesses abundant aromas of black currants, cedar, licorice and roasted herbs, deep, medium to full-bodied power, supple tannins, loads of fruit and a dense, complete, upfront, delicious personality. This beauty can be enjoyed now and over the next 10-15+ years. It is easily the most forward of Kenward’s 2008 Cabernets. (RP)" (12/2010) 92 points Vinous: " (15.1% alcohol): Captivating aromas of raspberry, rose petal and tamarind. Fat, lush and soft, with enticing inne...

2008 Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)
Back In Stock!
99 points Wine Enthusiast: "The flagship wine from Quilceda Creek offers exotic scents of plum, cassis, loam, coffee and pine sap, a rich and evocative blend. The wine delivers all that is promised and more; it is deep and dense with flavor, polished, focused and persistent. Vanilla, espresso, fine tannins, luscious acids and cascading fruits. *Best of 2012, Editors' Choice* (PG)" (02/2012) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More pure and focused than the 2009, with a slightly closer to the vest feel, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the cooler...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 400 cases of the 2008 Altagracia, which includes a lot of Petit Verdot (20%) in the Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend. The year’s spring frosts resulted in a smaller crop than usual resulting in a denser, richer but at the same time more texturally interesting and seductive style of wine. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by lots of blue, red and black fruits as well as good minerality, purity and depth. (RP) " (12/2010) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright red-r...

2008 Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
97 points Decanter: "A classic, slow-maturing year picked into October. It's a pale, pristine hue - a beautifully assembled mix of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Aÿ, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzy, Verzenay and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, combining saline-wrapped orchard fruits with great Pinot Noir subtlety yet strength. THE aperitif Champagne, but also try with sea trout. (ME)" (02/2019) 95 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a sunny and delicious 2008, with brightness infusing the wine, from its platinum color to its mineral intensity, transforming its richness and pow...

Clos Pepe Estate is a 28-acre vineyard located just off Highway 246 in the Sta. Rita Hills. While most of the fruit from this small property is sold to high-profile vineyards like Roessler and A.P. Vin, owners Cathy and Stephen Pepe hold a small amount back to make some wine under their own label. According to Pinot File: "Subdued aromas of dark berries with a hint of smoke. Bright and juicy mineral-laden flavors of red and blue berries. Vibrant and refreshing with a smooth mouth feel and some persistence. A promising wine that is still undeveloped and w...
Price: $39.99



98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Nicolas Catena Zapata is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc that spent 24 months in 100% new French oak followed by 24 months in bottle prior to release. It delivers an inviting bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, espresso, incense, lavender, black currant, and black cherry. This sets the stage for a full-bodied, powerful yet elegant, beautifully proportioned effort with great depth and volume. It conceals plenty of structure and will effortless...




Calera Wine Company is an esteemed producer based in Mt. Harlan in California's San Benito County. Calera, which is named for an on-site lime kiln, is notable for its limestone-rich soils which is a rarity in California. Pinot Noir is the key grape variety here and they make several single-vineyard wines.

96-97 points James Suckling: "I can't wait to taste this in bottle. Bright fruit, with currants and plums on the nose. A powerful and structured palate, with plenty of tannins and a long flavorful finish. This is precise, a combination of the 2006 and 2007. Barrel sample." (02/2011) 96 points Vinous: "The estate's 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is one of those rare wines that looks like it will be absolutely delicious pretty much at any point in its life. Super-refined and silky, the 2008 caresses the palate with layers of deeply expressive da...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Esprit de Beaucastel flows with sweet dark cherries, flowers, tobacco and spices. It is a beautiful, classically built wine graced with striking inner perfume, lovely mid-palate juiciness and a round, utterly harmonious finish. Well-integrated, silky tannins linger on the close. This is a fabulous wine from Tablas Creek. My sense is that the wine should be tasted upon release and then again only after a number of years in bottle. In 2008 the blend is 38% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 26% Syrah and 6% Counoise...
