  • 2016 Castello di Bossi Chianti Classico

    $22.00
    JS 93DC 92
    James Suckling 93: There is some good richness to this Chianti Classico with blackberries, nutmeg, hazelnuts and a touch of spices and Christmas cake. Full body, ripe and round tannins, zesty acidity and a medium to long finish.
    Decanter 92: Marco Bacci has owned this expansive Castelnuovo Berardenga property since 1998 and has significantly increased the Gran Selezione production since the inaugural 2013 vintage - from 10,000 to 50,000 bottles. The 2016 release is robust and big-boned but with a savoury and mellow personality. It is dominated by intriguing nuances of mushroom, spice and blood. Firm tannins keep the soft fruit in check while measured acidity injects vibrancy. Some warming alcohol on finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029.

  • 2017 Vietti Barbera d’Asti ‘Tre Vigne’

    $19.00
    WS 91WA 90
    Wine Spectator 91: High-toned black currant, black cherry and violet aromas and flavors are accented by vanilla and toast notes in this suave red. Supple and intense, with a lingering aftertaste of dark fruit, licorice and spice. Drink now through 2024.
    Wine Advocate 90: Despite the deep concentration and richness of the 2017 Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne, the freshness is still there. The three vineyard parcels Vietti farms in Asti go into this wine of impressive depth. Yes, this was one of the hottest vintages in a decade for Barbera d'Asti, but it still shows more acidity than the estate’s Barbera d'Alba. This wine is rustic and raw with plenty of structure. Originally planted in 1932 and 1935, they bought these vineyards in 1995 and replanted many in 1996, with fruit from the old vines going into their special La Crena selection. Some 35,000 bottles were made.

    2018 Viñalba Reserve Malbec

    $17.00
    WA 90JS 92
    Wine Advocate 90: The clean, expressive and fruit-driven 2018 Viñalba Reserva Malbec has a dark opaque color and a brooding nose with notes of black fruit and violets; it’s quite varietal and with nicely integrated oak. It has a soft palate, with clean fruit flavors and almost unnoticeable tannins. It’s really pleasant and easy to drink.
    James Suckling 92: Some ripe blackberries and plums, as well as tar and smoke undertones. Juicy on the palate with a slightly chewy structure. Full body. Long, warming finish. Drink now.

    2016 Clos Apalta ‘Le Petit Clos’

    $53.99
    WA 93JS 96
    Wine Advocate 93: The "second wine" here, the 2016 Le Petit Clos is a very different blend from the 2015; it is now mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with just 4% Merlot and 1% Carménère, while last year it was almost half Carménère. The vineyards are now certified in organic and biodynamic agriculture. The bunches were hand-destemmed, and the grapes fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts and a six-week maceration. Malolactic was in barrique, and the élevage happened as follows: the wine spent seven months in new French barriques, and then 71% of the volume was transferred to French oak barriques (22% new and 49% second year), while the rest of the wine was put in oak vats. The élevage was 23 months in total. With the change in varieties, this feels very different from the Clos Apalta—more Cabernet here and more Carménère there.
    James Suckling 96: A juicy and delicious second wine from Clos Apalta. Beautiful, ripe and delicious with dark berries and mushrooms. Full-bodied and very balanced with complex walnut, spice and berry character. Dark chocolate and hazelnuts at the finish. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.

  • 2012 Bernardus ‘Marinus’

    $64.99
    WE 92
    Wine Enthusiast 92: One of the winery's most celebrated releases each year, this blend of all five major Bordeaux red varieties is an excellent showcase of Carmel Valley's class. Freshly squeezed blackberry and blackcurrant fruit meet with beef char, charcoal and dried lilacs on the nose. The palate tastes of lava rocks, dark chocolate, fresh boysenberries, dried mint and beef jerky, all woven together with a touch of smoke. Editors' Choice.

  • 2015 Pago de Valdoneje

    $15.99
    WA 91
    Wine Advocate 91: The just bottled, unoaked, entry level red, a favorite among the young Mencías, is the 2015 Pago de Valdoneje; this wine shows the character of 2015, which was a warm, ripe vintage that provided concentrated wines. This is juicy, ripe, very attractive and heady, quite open and showy. It even made me think of a young Port, with some herbal aromas, not because it's heavy at all, as the palate is really balanced and is medium-bodied. Power, character and rustic elegance at very affordable prices.

  • 2018 Altocedro Cabernet Sauvignon

    $19.00
    WA 90
    Wine Advocate 90: The creamy and spicy 2018 Año Cero Cabernet Sauvignon seemed to have a little more influence from the élevage in oak barrels (only one-third of the wine for ten months) than its siblings. It has varietal notes, balsamic and herbal, with blackberry aromas and an austere palate with serious tannins. It felt a bit austere compared with the others. It needs food. 27,000 bottles produced.

A voluptuous palate with a flourish of fresh fruit. The aromas are mirrored on the palate that also has dark chocolate undertones and silky tannins in the background.

    WE 93
    Wine Enthusiast 93: The spicy and earthy nose on this sprightly bottling from the iconic vineyard is superb: pressed mulberry, beet and rhubarb aromas lifted by thyme, star anise and bay leaf. The palate is slightly mellower, with rounded pomegranate and cherry notes cut by pine needle-like spice.

  • 2017 Bodega Bernabeleva ‘Camino de Navaherreros’

    $19.00
    Tasting Notes The intensely floral bouquet offers aromas of strawberry, raspberry, rose, magnolia, and Asian spices; similar to a rustic Pinot Noir, but the body an weight is very much old vine Grenache. Eighty-year-old vines offer fresh and energetic fruit in the mouth, with sweet red berry flavors unfettered by tannins. The spiciness is mirrored on the finish, which is long and very pure.

Smoked meats, BBQ and any hearty dish makes a great pairing.

    Vinous 94: The highlight in this range, Alma Fria's 2015 Pinot Noir Holtermann Vineyard is a very sexy wine. Racy, juicy and aromatically intense, the 2015 is another wine full of the natural radiance and richness the vintage provided on its own. Succulent red cherry, plum, menthol, licorice, lavender and spice all mesh together in this dense, super-expressive, yet mid-weight Pinot. Drinking window: 2019 - 2025

    Wine Advocate 92: The 2016 Pic Saint Loup La Closerie du Pic, a blend of Syrah and Grenache, features striking aromas of crushed stone to go along with the familiar cola and plum notes so typical of this estate's style. It's full-bodied and softly tannic but concentrated, with more freshness, energy and length than the entry-level wines. It should drink well for up to a decade.

  • 2015 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino

    $67.00
    WA 95JS 95WE 93VN 93
    Wine Advocate 95: The Altesino 2015 Brunello di Montalcino shows beautiful depth and latitude, with broad fruit aromas of dark cherry and cassis that recall the warmth and golden sunlight of the vintage. The wine is deceivingly streamlined in terms of mouthfeel, but that slim and buttoned-down backbone supports a broad range of flavors and sensations, from lavender essence and camphor ash to moist soil and toasted spice. All of these elements are delivered with impressive harmony and unity, and I expect that this wine will continue on a slow, steady and satisfying aging trajectory over the next 10 years or more. Fruit is sourced from across 21 hectares of vines with tufaceous limestone soils and Alberese rock, which contributes to the freshness and balanced structure of the wine. The wine was bottled in June 2019, and this wine was released in January 2020.
    James Suckling 95: Terracotta, earth, iron filings, cedar and leather make for an undergrowth-driven Brunello 2015, which doesn’t fall short in the fruit department either, where there are red plums and red cherries. The tannins are neatly stacked, one on top of the other, with tidy acidity drawing in vibrant fruit and keeping it taut throughout. Balanced and stylish. Drink from 2023.
    Wine Enthusiast 93: Aromas of underbrush, leather, camphor and wild berry form the nose. On the elegant, medium bodied palate, licorice and clove accent a core of juicy black cherry while polished tannins lend refined support. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced.
    Vinous 93: Altesino's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers a rich yet classic expression of Sangiovese fruit, showing ripe red berries coated in dusty earth tones, with hints of leather and dried florals completing the picture. On the palate, brisk acids frame silky textures, creating a polished expression of red and black fruits, savory spice and saline-minerals. The finish is long yet fresh, as cooling mint and licorice tones carry remnants of red berry fruit hovering above a core of fine tannins. Drinking window: 2024 - 2038.

    2015 Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Brunello di Montalcino ‘Pianrosso’

    $99.00 $89.00
    WS 94WA 96JS 100WE 98
    Wine Spectator 94: Black cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavors mark this saturated red. Beefy tannins offer support and all the components are in the right place. Stays fresh and long on the finish, with lingering accents of fruit, mineral and tobacco. Best from 2023 through 2043.
    Wine Advocate 96: The Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Pianrosso is distinguished by a unique aromatic profile that brings out mineral notes of crushed limestone or chalk. This adds a greater sense of focus and delineation that not only characterizes the bouquet but also applies to the way the wine hits the palate in a fuller and more determined way (compared to the slightly softer classic Brunello). Instead, this single-vineyard Brunello shows an upright and direct approach with soft salinity on the close followed by forest fruit, spice and medicinal herb. The mouthfeel makes a big impact thanks to its streamlined and polished texture.
    James Suckling 100: Lots of ripe and rich fruit with a decadent undertone of meat and spice that turns to pure fruit and licorice. Medium to full body, refined tannins and a fresh and bright finish. All about harmony.
    Wine Enthusiast 98: Intense aromas of berry, iris, underbrush, botanical herb and camphor shape the enticing nose. Firmly structured, the taut, full-bodied palate offers juicy black cherry, raspberry, licorice and tobacco set against tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2025–2035.

It fermented with indigenous yeasts in concrete vats, and one-third of the volume matured in French and American oak barrels for ten months. It's quite fruit driven and juicy, with a soft, caressing texture.

    Vinous 91: Limpid red. Potent cherry and black raspberry scents are complemented by suggestions of violet, musky underbrush, and cocoa powder. Chewy and tightly focused on entry and then more supple in the midpalate, offering appealingly sweet red and dark berry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Finishes long and chewy, with resonating florality; subtle, steadily building tannins add framework and support. (25% new French oak)

  • 2015 Shafer ‘Hillside Select’ Cabernet Sauvignon

    $339.99
    WA 98JS 98WE 96
    Wine Advocate 98: Very deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select comes bounding out of the glass with gregarious scents of crème de cassis, warm black cherries, plum preserves and Indian spices with hints of lilacs, garrigue, stewed tea and cigar box plus a waft of charcuterie. Full-bodied, rich, boldly fruited and wildly decadent, it has a rock-solid frame of grainy tannins and compelling freshness, finishing with loads of earthy and savory layers.
    James Suckling 98: There’s an intensely ripe, fresh and vibrant edge to this focused, elegant and assertively pure cabernet that delivers attractive blueberry and cassis aromas in stylish form. The palate arrives as a precise and focused suite of ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors, building smoothly to an attractively crisp and even-paced finish. Another superb edition of this wine. Drink or hold.
    Wine Enthusiast 96: Having spent three years in barrel, this 100% varietal wine (from the producer’s famous hillside) is brawny in concentrated black fruit, Christmas spice and thick, firm tannin. A dusty thread of crushed rock, black licorice and flint provide exotic accents to the velvety thick grip. This will do well over time; enjoy best from 2025–2030.

  • 2016 Beaulieu Vineyard ‘Georges de Latour Private Reserve’ Cabernet Sauvignon

    $129.99
    WA 97JS 98WE 93VN 96
    Wine Advocate 97: Blended of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot matured for 22 months in French oak, 90% new, this vintage has an alcohol level of 14.9%. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is still incredibly youthful. Sporting notions of cedar and cinnamon toast to begin, the nose opens out to beautiful notes of warm cassis, crushed red and black plums and kirsch with floral hints of roses and candied violets. Sparks of crushed rocks and cast iron pan plus a touch of dried herbs emerge with coaxing. Full-bodied, rich, bold and energetic in the mouth, the palate reveals a very firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long with beautiful mineral accents. To be released in autumn 2019, 8,400 cases were made.
    James Suckling 98: The intensity of fruit in the nose is so impressive with blackberries, blackcurrants and lavender. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied, tight and focused with polished and chewy tannins. Blackberries, currants, walnuts and hazelnuts on the palate. Solid core of fruit and ripe tannins. Classically structured. 97% cabernet sauvignon with petit verdot. Don’t try this until 2022 and onwards.
    Wine Enthusiast 93: Thick, concentrated and hugely structured, this wine from the famous site is robust in tannin and oak, with a core of tangy red fruit, both currant and cassis. It builds succulence on the palate as it opens, allowing for a generosity of spirit and fruit. Still, cellaring will benefit the wine; enjoy best from 2026–2031.
    Vinous 96: Bright full ruby. Vibrant, pristine aromas of crushed blueberry, blackberry, cassis, violet, licorice and wild herbs, plus a hint of dusty cocoa powder. Remarkably plush on entry, hinting at an almost chocolatey ripeness, then large-scaled, dense and chewy in the middle palate, with harmonious acidity and a distinctly savory quality leavening the sweetness of the wine's berry fruit. Turns sweeter again on the wonderfully long, aromatic aftertaste, which boasts noble, perfectly integrated tannins and outstanding lift. Still a baby but has all the elements for greatness. Beaulieu will introduce this wine in the fall as a centerpiece of their 80th anniversary celebration and it will be a crowd-pleaser. It's hard to compare any wine to the '68, but this may eventually prove to be the best vintage of the Private Reserve since that magical wine. (14.9% alcohol; 3.75 pH; 6.0 grams per liter total acidity; aged for 22 months in 90% new French oak)

    Wine Spectator 94: Polished and multilayered, with expressive red currant, smoky spice and green olive accents that take on richness toward fine-grained tannins.
    Wine Advocate 93: Mostly Merlot with 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Walla Walla Merlot begins with a black-fruited nose but quickly moves to express red fruit on the palate. The wine is precise, with hints of pencil shavings and juicy plum, while the Cabernet expression lifts the back end with subtle spices. Medium to full-bodied, the wine ends with a long-lingering finish that delivers pleasure and complexity. This is a tasty and gorgeous Merlot, of which there were 1,866 cases made.
    James Suckling 94: Notes of iodine and some smoky nuances, as well as sappy, foresty freshness to the red plums and darker berries. The palate has rich tannins and dark-plum flavors pervade the assertive finish. A blend of 94% merlot, 4% cabernet franc and 2% cabernet sauvignon. Try from 2023.
    Wine Enthusiast 91: Black raspberry, dried and fresh herb and black currant aromas are at the fore. Ripe, lush fruit flavors follow, supported by firm, lightly grainy tannins. It has a nice yum factor. Best after 2023. Cellar Selection.

  • 2015 Pedestal Merlot

    $65.99
    WA 94JS 94WE 92
    Wine Advocate 94: The 2015 Pedestal Merlot is a rich, dramatic wine that wafts from the glass with aromas of black cherries, crème de cassis, cigar tobacco and mocha. On the palate, it's broad, full-bodied and lavish, with ripe, generously oak-inflected flavors and an ample core of fruit, structured by fine-grained but youthfully chewy tannins, concluding with a sweet, spicy and somewhat heady finish. The most exotic and expressive wine in the Long Shadows range, it's crafted by Michel Rolland.
    James Suckling 94: A very vivid and pure red with aromas of blackberries and blueberries. Hints of violets and licorice, too. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Shows tension and focus. Give it two or three years to soften. A blend of 75% merlot, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 10% petit verdot. Drink in 2020 and beyond.
    Wine Enthusiast 92: High-toned exotic spice, dark raspberry and barrel aromas are followed by focused, supremely rich fruit flavors that lead to a warm finish. Firm tannins provide support. For those who question if Merlot can be a serious wine, this is your answer.

  • 2017 Quinta do Crasto Douro Tinto

    $22.99
    WA 90
    Wine Advocate 90: The 2017 Tinto, in bottle about four months when first seen, is a blend of Tinta Roriz (30%), Touriga Franca (25%), Touriga Nacional (35%) and Tinta Barroca (10%). About 15% (a deliberate increase from what used to be a nominal 5%) of the blend was aged in second use French oak for six months, the rest in tank. Crasto's idea with the increase in oak going forward is to change the wine's texture a bit and add a bit of gravitas. This has come together really well since last seen, fleshing out, showing a bit more power and (most importantly) vivid flavor. I'm not sure if this will hold serve throughout its useful life, but at the moment, it is worth leaning up on this succulent but fresh Tinto. It comes in at 14% alcohol.

  • 2015 Casa Castillo ‘Las Gravas’

    WA 94
    Wine Advocate 94: The 2015 Las Gravas is a classic Mediterranean blend of Monastrell with 15% each Garnacha and Syrah, with 15% alcohol after fermenting with part of full clusters and indigenous grapes and aging in used oak barrels for 19 months. 2015 is the last vintage that Las Gravas has some Syrah, as it adds some sweet fruit he wants to avoid. However, it shows fresh within the balsamic profile, with plenty of rosemary and thyme notes combined with floral undertones and the character of the esparto grass and tree bark that are textbook descriptors of the variety.

  • 2013 Felsina ‘Rancia’ Chianti Classico Riserva

    $52.99
    WS 92WA 95JS 93DC 93VN 96
    Wine Spectator 92: This red is dense and smooth, with muscular tannins supporting the black cherry, plum, sweet spice and earth flavors. Stays fresh and long on the aftertaste of earth, spice and tobacco notes. Best from 2018 through 2030.
    Wine Advocate 95: Here is another highlight of the vintage. The 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a dark, moody and sophisticated wine. It does not reveal itself immediately or in any obvious way. Instead, it doses out its intensity in careful measurements. The whole performance is seductive to say the least. That slow momentum leads to dark cherry with spice, grilled herb, wet earth and dried rose. Felsina's Riserva Rancia is a very elegant wine, both on the nose and in the mouth.
    James Suckling 93: A structured Chianti Classico riserva with polished tannins and juicy fruit. Hints of chocolate and meat under the ripe fruit. Full to medium body, polished texture. From organically grown grapes.
    Decanter 93: Sweet scents of cherry, milled grain, semolina. Quietly enticing, a wine of ample ripeness. Already evolving towards secondary notes of oak underbrush, wild mushroom and liquorice.
    Vinous 96: Fèlsina's 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia bristles with energy, with veins of underlying acidity that give the wine its focus and drive. Dark red cherry, plum, rose petal, herb and licorice are some of the signatures. Most of the Fèlsina Chianti Classicos are defined by their dark fruit and savory notes, but the Rancia is also wonderfully bright and lifted from start to finish while staying very much true to the house style. Today, the Rancia gives the impression it will unwind at a glacial pace. I imagine most bottles of the 2013 will be drunk before the wine truly enters its prime.

  • 2016 Marchesi di Gresy ‘Martinenga’ Barbaresco

    $72.99
    WA 95WE 91
    Wine Advocate 95: Compared to the 2015 vintage that I tasted at the same time, the 2016 Barbaresco Martinenga is slightly more saturated and concentrated in terms of appearance. This wine shows a dense inner core with dark fruit flavors, tannins and lively acidity that will continue to find integration as the wine moves forward in time. In fact, compared to the 2015 vintage, my bet is this wine will enjoy a much longer bottle evolution.
    Wine Enthusiast 91: Camphor, wild berry, crushed botanical herbs and forest floor aromas mingle with new French oak. Structured, austere and full bodied, the assertive palate offers black cherry jam, espresso, licorice, thyme and orange zest set against bracing, close-grained tannins vibrant acidity. It has a drying, firm finish. Best 2026–2036.

Medium-bodied with a chewy, stewed tea-laced frame, it delivers loads of bright, refreshing flavors and a quiet, earthy intensity on the finish.

    Wine Advocate 95: The flagship wines include the 2014 J. Daniel Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from three sources – the family vineyard called Molehill at a 1700-feet elevation on Howell Mountain, the Vine Hill Ranch Vineyard and Heimark Vineyard in Calistoga. A gorgeous 2014, with notes of graphite, mulberry and blackcurrant, this full-bodied, opaque purple wine offers terrific fruit purity, sweet tannin, and a long finish of a good 45+ seconds. It was aged 19 months in 75% new French oak and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. There are 1,064 cases, and it can be drunk now or cellared for another 25 years.

The full-bodied palate is powerfully fruited with opulent exotic spices accenting the black forest cake notions, framed by plush tannins and finishing with epic length. A beautifully buxom showstopper!

    Wine Advocate 100: One-hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 75% new French oak, the 2016 J Daniel Cuvee is deep garnet-purple in color and offers up exuberant notes of crème de cassis, chocolate-covered cherries, wild blueberries, violets and unsmoked cigars with touches of garrigue, fragrant earth, powdered cinnamon, black olives and tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house, with a solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the taut, muscular fruit, finishing long and minerally. 950 cases produced.
    James Suckling 97: Love the green olives, blackberries and sweet tobacco. Hints of walnuts and wet earth. Full-bodied yet reserved and very tight with beautiful richness and focus. Dense and exciting. A blend of Oakville and Howell Mountain. Great Napa cab. Try after 2022.

  • 2015 Gaja Barbaresco

    $239.99
    WS 95WA 93JS 95WE 96DC 92
    Wine Spectator 95: A combination of savory and fruit elements, this red reveals cherry, berry, eucalyptus, menthol, tar and mineral flavors. Firms up, with monolithic tannins locking this tight. Patience is required. Best from 2023 through 2042. From Italy.
    Wine Advocate 93: The 2015 Barbaresco was to be bottled a week after I tasted this sample for review. Gaia Gaja was waiting for the right moon before commencing bottling. This vintage is not unlike the 2005 growing season that saw a good amount of rain in spring and scorching heat in the summer. The risk of downy mildew made vintners extra vigilant. Although the 2015 vintage was not ideal for color fixing Nebbiolo (indeed, this wine is slightly less intense in terms of its color saturation), it did prove an important year for power, structure and dry extract. This is a full and generous expression with a fine, loose texture and rich fruit flavors.
    James Suckling 95: A rich and layered Barbaresco with cedar and plums, as well as light leather and rose aromas that follow to a full yet balanced palate and a chewy finish. Very polished. Drink in 2020, but already beautiful.
    Wine Enthusiast 96: Woodland berry, blue flower, sunbaked soil and a whiff of dark spice shape the nose. Structured and extremely elegant, the focused, impeccable palate doles out juicy red cherry, strawberry, baking spice and star anise set against taut polished tannins that provide seamless support. It’s well balanced, with fresh acidity. It’s already tempting but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2022–2032. Cellar Selection
    Decanter 92: Classic Nebbiolo perfume of violet and raspberry, followed by red cranberry and cherry fruit. Sweet, slightly creamy oak; this is approachable and – although it lacks the depth of the single vineyard wines – it’s still impressively long with gorgeous charm. Drinking Window 2018 - 2032

  • 2013 Damilano ‘Cannubi’ Barolo

    Wine Spectator 93: Polished overall despite a base of firm, dusty tannins. Features cherry, plum, leather, graphite and tobacco flavors. Extends on the vibrant finish, with fruit, leather and light grassy notes. Best from 2020 through 2035.
    Wine Advocate 94: The 2013 Barolo Cannubi is a layered and enriched expression that shows both elegance and power. This is a beautiful quality that is so specific to the celebrated Cannubi cru. The wine is silky and dense in texture and offers generous aromas of dark fruit, cassis, licorice and balsam herb. There is moist earth and some dustiness on the finish. The Barolo offers all of the most graceful aromatic highlights that you should expect of Nebbiolo. These qualities will improve with age.
    James Suckling 95: A rich and polished red with plums, berries, hints of spices and mushrooms. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a pretty finish. Drink in 2019.
    Wine Enthusiast 92: Enticing scents of violet, rose, new leather, perfumed berry and aromatic herb are front and center. Full-bodied and elegant, the taut structured palate delivers morello cherry, raspberry, white pepper and star anise alongside tightly knit fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. It's still youthfully austere and needs time to fully come around. Drink 2023–2038.

  • 2013 Paolo Scavino ‘Rocche dell’Annunziata Riserva’ Barolo

    $246.99
    WA 97JS 95WE 94
    Wine Advocate 97: The 2013 Barolo Rocche dell'Annunziata Riserva was released in January of 2019, and once again it looks to be a top prize. Licorice and flowers dominate the bouquet, and its beautiful red fruit is generous throughout. This wine has always been a beauty and consistently has had a high price tag to reflect that quality, going back to the first vintages of the 1990s. It has regularly sold for about $200 every year for the last decade. These vines are old, some of them very old (reaching the ripe age of 60 years old in 1990s, when many of them were replanted with carefully selected clones), producing an elegance and concentration that brings intensity and a high standard of aromas. This Barolo without a doubt shows its pedigree and a quality of noble perfumes that demonstrate characteristics of the greatest Nebbiolo vintages, all delivered with excellent concentration. The magic lingers on the palate, right up to the finish.
    James Suckling 95: Aromas of white truffles and dried red cherries here with an earthy nuance that makes for a complex and compelling nose. The palate has a deep and dense shape and delivers a wide array of rich cherry and plum flavors. Some handy spice here, too. Drink or hold.
    Wine Enthusiast 94: Violet, iris, exotic spice and menthol aromas lead the way on this fragrant red. The firmly structured palate boasts elegance and tension, delivering cranberry, pomegranate, licorice and white pepper set against tightly knit, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. It’s still youthfully austere and will be even better after several more years of aging. Drink 2023–2033.

  • 2016 Clos Apalta

    $159.99
    WS 94WA 96JS 99VN 93
    Wine Spectator 94: Refined, with savory richness to the mineral-infused raspberry, red currant and herbal shadings. Creamy hints emerge midpalate, leading to a crisp, well-structured finish that lingers with slate and cast iron notes. Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
    Wine Advocate 96: The 2016 Clos Apalta is a blend of 64% Carménère (higher than in 2015), 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot hitting the scale at 15% alcohol with a pH of 3.7. The Carménère and Cabernet were planted ungrafted in 1920, and all the vineyards are organic and biodynamic (certified) and very low yielding. The hand-destemmed grapes fermented in oak vats and barriques (17%), and the wine went through malolactic and 26 months of aging in brand new French barriques. I've seen a great improvement in Carménère in Chile in the last few years, perhaps since they stopped wanting to grow it everywhere and focused on the places where it grows well, like the Apalta region. They have also learned to tame the green aromas and fierce tannins and alcohol and to produce much more harmonious reds, like this aromatic example that reveals spice, tobacco leaves, red fruit and floral notes without noticeable alcohol or excess ripeness.
    James Suckling 99: This is really focused and refined with fantastic dried flowers and dark berries. Dried-lavender and mint undertones. Medium-to full-bodied with refined and polished tannins that are all together and so focused. Really integrated and melted together on the palate. Compact and very linear. Please give this two or three years to come completely together, but it’s already breathtaking. Better to drink after 2022.
    Vinous 93: A few mature wines still survive from the period that Michel Rolland spent in Chile, including Clos Apalta (a blend of 64% Carménère, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot), demonstrating both the effectiveness and richness of the style. Taking an approach that suits the terroir of Apalta in Colchagua, this garnet-hued red offers ripe aromas of jam, camphor and bay leaf that guide the hints of blackberry and an elegant woodiness that encompasses notes of sandalwood and tobacco. A complex wine that reflects its oxidative aging process; after a while, black olives, musk and hazelnuts appear. It is rich on the palate with fine tannins and slightly intense woody notes. A long, mature, open and flavorsome finish.

  • 2015 Bien Nacido Estate ‘LXXIII Reserve’ Pinot Noir

    Wine Advocate 94: There are 127 cases of the lovely 2015 Bien Nacido Vineyard LXXIII Pinot Noir, which offers up a deep-pitched bouquet of crushed cassis, cracked pepper and nori that's a bit darker and more brooding than usual, without the suggestions of the candied peel and Christmas cake that this often displays. On the palate, it's medium bodied, concentrated and structured around a fine-grained chassis of tannin and juicy acids. Give this youthfully tight-knit Pinot Noir a few years in the cellar, then follow it for a decade.
    Wine Enthusiast 96: Intense cranberry aromas meet with smoked pork roast, crushed slate and pinches of sage, thyme and white pepper on the nose of this luxury-level bottling. The palate is florally flush in touches of rose and tarragon, set against snappy red-plum fruit and racy acidity.
    Vinous 94: The 2015 Pinot Noir LXXIII Bien Nacido Vineyards is gorgeous. Inky blue and purplish fruit, licorice, menthol, sage, violet and lavender infuse the 2015, a wine of extreme richness and unctuosity. It will be fascinating to see how the 2015 develops during its aging. The 2015 is dense and rich, with an almost Syrah-like element of savoriness on the finish.

    Wine Advocate 94: A barrel sample, the 2017 Esprit de Tablas is made up of 40% Mourvèdre, 35% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Counoise. It's pale to medium ruby with aromas of spiced cranberry sauce, red cherry preserves, warm blackberries, orange peel, blueberries and tree bark with accents of bitter chocolate, dusty earth and garrigue plus gobs of juicy red berry notions. It's light to medium-bodied with great intensity, juicy acidity, grainy tannins and a very long finish. This has great potential!
    Wine Enthusiast 94: A plum aroma meshes into cola, rose and hibiscus tones on the nose of this blend of 40% Mourvèdre, 35% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Counoise. The tense palate delivers engaging flavors of purple flowers and elderberry as black pepper and bright acidity pumps into the finish. Drink now–2032.
    Vinous 94: Glistening ruby. Pungent black and blue fruit, potpourri and incense aromas show outstanding clarity and pick up exotic spice and mineral nuances as the wine opens up. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering bitter cherry, black raspberry, violet pastille and spice cake flavors that deepen on the back half. Finishes very long and precise, with mounting tannins and an emphatic echo of candied flowers.

    Wine Advocate 92: The Golden Mean is made exclusively from Pommard and Swan clones. Medium to deep ruby colored, the 2013 Pinot Noir Golden Mean has a savory, sautéed herbs-led nose with earthy notes of mossy bark, loam and dried leaves over a gentle red currant jelly and raspberry tart core. The medium-bodied palate has a wonderfully firm, chewy texture that nicely corrals the vibrant red fruits and earthy layers, finishing with a refreshing lift.
    James Suckling 95: Lightening acidity here with vibrant and ripe fruit that gives depth and beauty. Wonderful verve to this well-crafted pinot. Such energy. Drink or hold.
    Wine Enthusiast 95: Lush and velvety, this wine offers big, dark cherry flavor around a tangy minerality.

    Wine Advocate 94: Tasted from vat, the 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio is shaping up to be a stunning wine, and may be one of the best expressions this single vineyard has produced so far in its young incarnation as a Gran Selezione wine. Previous vintages see some small additions of international grapes, but this vintage was made without Merlot in the blend. The wine is brimming with bright fruit intensity and enormous generosity. The finish is luscious, rich and long-lasting. It promises to flesh out further with more bottle aging.

Although still youthful, it displays a potential for plenty of aromatic complexity, medium to full body, and savory flavors. The wine has yet to reveal its considerable potential, so give it several more years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10-15 years.

    Wine Advocate 94: Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir Home Field Vineyard gives up notes of black tea, scorched earth, raspberries and wild blueberries with fragrant wafts of lilacs and rose hips plus a suggestion of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, intensely fruited and tightly wound, the palate is taut, muscular and lively with bags of energy down to the long, perfumed finish.
    James Suckling 97: This has impressive, fragrant complexity with an abundance of sweetly spiced red cherries and wild berries. Super expressive nose. The palate is seamlessly delivered with pristine red cherries and a smoothly layered texture that has been expertly crafted. Stunning Sonoma Coast pinot. Drink or hold.
