Brovia "Rocche di Castiglione" Barolo 2011

95 Our Score
94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(3/2015) "The 2011 Barolo Rocche di Castiglione is sweet, floral and wonderfully expressive, all Brovia signatures. Silky tannins provide the backdrop as this sensual, polished Barolo shows off its class. Perfumed notes are woven throughout, but it is the wine's exceptional textural finesse that stands out most. Hints of hard candy, mint, cinnamon and succulent red cherries add the final shades of dimension. In 2011, the Rocche stands out for its total sense of class. Drinking window 2018 - 2036."

Spottswoode Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(11/2013) "Spottswoode's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is beautiful, immediate and impeccable in its balance. The 2011 doesn't have the layered, explosive personality of some of the iconic vintages, but it isn't too far off that level. Spottswoode fans should drink the 2011 relatively early, while some of the more powerful, structured vintages age. I will not be surprised if the 2011 turns out to be one of the jewels of this vintage. The medium-bodied structure argues for early drinking, but there is more than enough energy and acidity to suggest the 2011 will age gracefully for a number of years. Incidentally, the 2011 is the first Spottswoode Cabernet under 14% in a decade. Once again, the winemaking team led by Aron Weinkauf has done a fabulous job. The 2011 is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Verdot."

Vilmart "Grand Cellier d'Or" Premier Cru Brut 2011

92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
93+ Wine Advocate
(6/2016) "The 2011 Grand Cellier d'Or Premier Cru Brut offers a clear, pure and fresh bouquet with lemon, limes and very chalky/mineral flavors that seem to be a bit austere in their youth. Round, elegant and intense, with great finesse and persistence in the finish, this is a remarkable rich, complex and highly elegant Champagne. It has some nutty and lingering mineral flavors in the finish. Great ageing potential, with great precision and complexity. The blend is 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir, with 100% selection massale (45-years-old vines), and was disgorged in June 2015 with eight grams per liter of dosage."

Quinta do Noval Vintage Porto 2011

97 Wine Spectator
97 Wine Advocate
(3/3/2016) "The 2011 Vintage Port is a blend of 60& Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Francesa and 10% Tinto Cão, all aged for 18 months in wood. It comes in at 101.2 grams per liter of residual sugar. It opens with understatement, but that doesn't last long. Showing pure power on the finish, this otherwise elegant Noval (especially refined in the mid-palate) shows itself to be in fine form as it airs out. Pointed, graceful and a bit drying, this is built for the long haul. It's a Port you need to cellar. It will one day gain complexity, open more fully and become more interesting. That day is not today, although if you air it out long enough, the fine fruit and flavor eventually come through. By the end of the week, this was actually possible to drink, although even then, as it sat in the glass, it became tighter and slightly astringent--showing off its power and intensity. Its firmness and underlying concentration are beautifully matched by the fruit, though. The balance is impeccable. If you have some old school patience, snap this up by the case. It may be accessible younger than I suggest, but this is a Port that should be put away for a couple of decades, or more, for best results."

Niepoort Vintage Port 2011

94-96 Wine Advocate
(6/2013) "The glass containing the Niepoort Vintage is almost overflowing with fruity aromas - damson, cassis, tobacco and cigar box all beautifully defined. With aeration there is a very appealing sense of Bordeaux-like austerity that comes forth. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, a slight savoriness infusing the tertiary black fruit, and superb structure on the reserved, quite aristocratic finish, which offers a kick of spice on the aftertaste. Wonderful."

Elio Grasso "Gavarina Vigna Chiniera" Barolo 2011

94 James Suckling
94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(11/2014) "Grasso's 2011 Barolo Gavarini Vigna Chiniera captures the essence and personality of the year in its inviting, radiant personality. Bright red stone fruits, crushed rocks, pine, mint and flowers are all lifted and aromatically expressive in the glass. The Gavarini is already quite open and inviting. I imagine it will offer a wide window of pure drinking pleasure over the next 20 years or so. This is a striking Barolo from the Grasso family."

Brovia "Brea Vigna Ca' Mia" Barolo 2011

95 Our Score
94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(3/2015) "Lavender, mint, sage, smoke, tobacco and plums are all laced together in the 2011 Barolo Brea Vigna Ca'Mia. As always, the Ca'Mia is a decidedly vertical Barolo built on a spine of persistent tannin, but in 2011 there is a little bit of added polish that serves to soften the contours. Tucked off the main road, Brea remains one of the least well-known vineyards in Serralunga. The 2011 is a great wine to start exploring some of the nuances of this site. A huge finish that brings together power and voluptuousness captures the pure radiance of the year. Drinking window 2019 - 2036."

La Jota Howell Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

The winery sells this classic Napa Valley mountain Cabernet for $75. We're quite a bit less. Make sure to decant - our sample bottle was even better on day two!

(11/2013) "Graphite, pencil shavings, violets, melted road tar, spices, blue/purplish fruit and lavender flesh out in the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon from La Jota. Aromatically striking and totally vivid in the glass, the 2011 stands out for its crystalline purity, finesse and vibrant finish. All the elements are in the right place. The tannins are firm yet also silky. This is a flat-out stunning wine from Chris Carpenter and La Jota. The 2011 is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Drink 2018-2031."

Meroi "Dominini" Refosco 2011

92+ Our Score
94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(11/2014) "A wild, captivating wine, the 2011 Refosco Vigna Dominin opens with exotic aromatics and layers of deep, inky fruit, all supported by firm Refosco tannins. The 2011 softens a bit with air, but it is likely to remain a decidedly extroverted, exuberant wine with a huge personality. This is a terrific example of Refosco in a warm vintage. Drinking window: 2017 - 2031."
