(9/2017) "Red wine doesn't get much smoother-and values in Pinot Noir don't get much better-than this. The wine has attractive red- and black-cherry aromas, a sense of richness on the palate and a silky mouthfeel that's hard to resist. Subtlety and restraint keep this wine from tiring the taste buds. Best Buy."

Tilia Mendoza Torrontes 2016

90 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2016) "The pale and aromatic 2016 Torrontés is produced from new vines on granite soils in the Tolombón zone of Cafayate in the province of Salta. The nose has plenty of Moscatel pulp aromas with tons of white flowers and a sharp palate, as it was harvested early and the vineyards have a cold exposition. They are looking for freshness and in 2016 they certainly got it. The palate shows very tasty, with a notable absence of bitter taste in the finish and it's bone dry. This is really good for the price."

Tilia Mendoza Malbec/Syrah 2015

88 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
90 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2016) "The 2015 Malbec Syrah is quite smoky and has notes of cured meat and violets. There's almost 40% Syrah in the blend, and it seems like it has contributed quite strongly to the aromatics of the wine. I looked it up and I had written something very similar last year, which says something about the consistency of the winemaking. Juicy, soft and polished, very drinkable, which seems to be the signature of the Tilia wines. Impressive!"

Purply-pink in the glass, the vines for this wine average 95 years in age and are certified organic. Very fresh with a lifted grapey beginning, the wine is deeper than initially suspected, with dark red berry fruit and medium tannins. Winemaker Anna Espelt has delivered another outrageous value.

Vinarija Zvonko Bogdan Serbia Chardonnay 2015

90 Our Score
(7/2017) This surprising little gem of a Chardonnay comes not from California or France, but from the northern reaches of Serbia. The hypermodern winery with the latest technology is situated overlooking an idyllic lake that has been home to viticulture for over 2,000 years. We were stunned at the quality of this bottling. It has everything one is looking for in an accessible everyday Chardonnay. Medium-bodied, and with a soft creamy texture, the wine displays textbook Chardonnay notes of lemon zest, lemon meringue and bright tropical fruit. The quality-to-price ratio here is great. While Serbia may not be the next major vinous hotspot, gems like this are worth seeking out, especially for ten bucks!

90 Our Score
(6/2017) Corte Alla Flora produces a delicious Vino Nobile di Montepulciano as well as this crazy good Toscana Rosso, also made entirely from Sangiovese. Look for classic Tuscan flavors of tart black cherry, wild strawberry, dried flowers, wet leaves and cigar wrapper. With medium-plus acidity, great length and wonderful freshness, this is a perfect everyday red, especially for summertime grilling or paired with Wednesday night pizza. It is very well put together and quintessentially Tuscan.

Mont Marcal Brut Reserva Cava 2015

(12/2017) Manuel Sancho of Mont Marcal got his start in the record business originally producing Catalan music for the Spanish market, expanding into distribution of such fine American records as K-Tel's "Hooked on Classics." If you're old like us, then you remember those inspired mini infomercials. But we digress, as this is about a delicious Sparkling wine made from traditional grapes Macabeo, Xarello and Parellada, with a bit of Chardonnay for good measure. This dry sparkler completely over-delivers, giving a mouthful of bubbles with a super fresh citrus and orchard fruit fused mid-palate. Well done!

90 Our Score
(6/2017) This gorgeous Chardonnay is an out-of-this-world buy. And since Chalone Vineyard is the only winery in this small AVA, there's no doubt where the fruit comes from! Partially barrel-fermented and aged for nine months in French oak, this is an outstanding wine with abundant fruit that wonderfully combines tropical and citrus flavors with a spicy, toasty, woodsy element. Medium in body and full-throttle in deliciousness. You would be very happy if you paid $15-$20 for this. At $11.99, it is ridiculously underpriced.

Domaine Labbe Abymes Vin de Savoie 2016

90 Our Score
(12/2017) Cousins Alexander and Jerome Labbe farm their family's 10-hectare estate in the village of Abymes - in the shadow of the French Alps' Mont Granier. Made from the Jacquere grape, this fresh, electric wine is bursting with energy. Aromas of yellow apple are lifted by lime zest. On the palate this has sneaky potency for its relatively low 11% alcohol. Finishes with a brisk saltiness that is delicious. This is as clean and vital as an alpine spring. If you hold our offerings from Muscadet or the Cotes de Gascogne in high regard, you MUST try this!

The palate is bright and lively with a gritty chew on the finish. A wonderfully French wine with loads of authentic personality.

Rich, smooth and substantial but with perfectly integrated acidity giving definition and punch to its fruit and mineral flavors. This cuvee includes a good percentage of cool-climate fruit in 2015, which contributes to the wine's density and verve. Amazingly rich yet pungent Sauvignon Blanc with terrific purity and slowly rising length. Delicious now but I'd love to see this in its dotage."

(5/2017) "(Disgorged Jan. 2017): Pale silver-pink. Lively, fruit-driven scents of strawberry, raspberry and flowers; I might have picked this blind as Pinot from the nose. Conveys a touch of sweetness but lovely acidity frames the wine's lively red berry and cherry fruit flavors. Not the most refined mousse but easy to drink, and with good backbone and acidity. Finishes with a touch of mineral firmness and very good length. A distinctly open-knit, rather commercial style but very good."

Smoking good notes of cassis, black currants and hints of plum all emerge from this rich, beautifully textured, layered beauty that has solid tannic grip, a silky, elegant texture and a great finish. It has real elegance and finesse and is a dark fruited, unctuous beauty to drink over the coming 3-4 years."

Aromas of lemon and apple lead the way to beautiful mineral and sea-salt notes from the constant breeze off the Adriatic sea and a subtle - and quite interesting - quinine quality on the finish. The texture and overall experience here is very special and very refined. This will make a lot of people very happy.

(12/2017) La Rioja Alta is one of the great producers in Rioja. Bodegas Aster is their estate in Ribera del Duero. While it is a Crianza, matured for one year in barrel, the focus here is on the pure black cherry of the Tempranillo grape. All about the fruit, the 2015 Aster is clean and bright, medium-to-full in body and softly textured with an ever so slight earth and mild vanilla character. A beautiful dry red to pair with red meat and stews. Think pot roast.

Wine Advocate quotes a release price of $33-39 for this dry, ageworthy Nahe estate-grown Riesling. We're selling it for less than half that amount!
89 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2016) The 2015 Dorsheim Riesling Trocken is sourced in the Grosse Lage vineyards Pittermännchen (60%) and Goldloch (40%) but from younger vines and less well exposed rows. Macerated between eight to 12 hours, the wine fermented partly in stainless steel and partly in 1,200-liter oak Stück. It opens with a delicately fruity, stony, initially a bit reductive, yet intense nose with pineapples flavors. Full-flavored, very juicy and piquant, this is a very elegant and well balanced Riesling with grip and bitter grapefruit flavors in the finish. This is surely a wine to be kept for 3-8 or even 10 years. Drink Date 2019 - 2026."

Barter & Trade Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

92 Our Score
(12/2017) This dark and concentrated beauty oozes with blackberry, black cherry, plum and cassis, all framed by soft, silky-smooth, well integrated tannins. Aging in French oak, 50% of which was new, contributed gorgeous notes of mocha, vanilla and chocolate shavings. Winemaker / vine nursery specialist Andrew Jones, acquired the fruit for this shockingly good Cabernet through a barter relationship with a top Washington State grower. He then arranged for an overnight truck run to bring it to his winery in Paso Robles so he could directly control all aspects of the winemaking process. The resulting wine, which he aptly named "Barter & Trade" has all the bells and whistles of luxury Cabernet costing three times the price.

(6/30/2017) The 2015 Syrah The Pundit (88% Syrah, 6% Grenache, 4% Mourvèdre and 2% Viognier) continues to over-deliver in every vintage, showing loads of dark, earthy fruits, pepper and hints of olives in a medium to full-bodied, pure, layered style. It tastes like an Old World wine made in the New World, and that's just what it is. Buy a case and drink it over the coming 4-5 years. Drink Date 2017 - 2022." (Washington)

Wonderwall "Spanish Springs Vineyard" Edna Valley Pinot Noir 2016

91 Our Score
(11/2017) The latest release of Wonderwall Pinot Noir is here, and it just may be the best bottling yet! Checking in at a modest 12.9% ABV, the 2016 Wonderwall is all about balance and finesse. The fruit is rich with plenty of ripe cherries and dried strawberries leading the way. It is layered with notes of cola, clove, earth, spice and a touch of leather. The finish is long and delicious, enticing you back for sip after sip. We are unaware of any other sub-$20 California Pinot Noir with this level of depth, flavor and complexity. Overall, a smokin' value!

Rustenberg Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2015

This toasty beauty earns a solid 90 from our tasting panel and a whopping 95 from Decanter!
95 Decanter
(11/2016) "An impressive Stellenbosch Chardonnay that wouldn't look out of place in Corton-Charlemagne with its complex leesy character. A mosaic of smoke and flint adds considerable interest to this charming wine. Plush aromas of buttery lemons, biscuits and honeydew melon translate well onto the palate. This wine combines power with restraint, richness with acidity, due in part to expertly handled oak. The intensity is palpable, and the flavour and aroma characteristics last a lifetime in the mouth."

Bisol "Crede" Valdobiadene Brut Prosecco Superiore 2015

91 Vinous, Ian D'Agata
(11/2016) "Pale straw. Crisp aromas and flavors of green apple, nectarine and jasmine have a noteworthy mineral edge. Finishes long and bright, with memorable focus and purity. Delightful Prosecco Brut; I have long believed Crede to be one of the best Brut Proseccos made by anyone. Interestingly it is not 100% Glera but mixes in a touch of Pinot Bianco and of Perera. Even though the vintage is not cleary indicated on the front label, this wine is made with grapes picked in the 2015 harvest."

Farmlands Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016

90+ Our Score
(12/2017) This beautiful Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is 100% estate fruit from Johan Vineyards. You may recognize Johan Vineyards as the biodynamically farmed source of some outstanding Pinots from Brianne Day and Bow & Arrow. "Farmlands" is Johan Vineyards' own entry-tier bottling and it totally over-delivers. This estate-grown, naturally made wine offers delicious aromas and flavors of fresh bing cherry, black cherry and rocky earth. Bright acidity keeps everything in check, leading to a clean and vibrant finish. Simply delicious, and a steal for the price.

Bodegas Moraza Rioja Tempranillo 2015

90+ Our Score
(7/2017) In May 2017 we had the opportunity to visit Spain and tour the region of Rioja. One of our favorite stops was at this small production winery called Bodega Moraza, and we were thrilled to learn that a small amount is imported to the country by Zev Rovine. This family-run winery is dedicated to biodynamic farming and produces their wines as natural as possible. They do not make "traditional" Rioja such as Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva wines, but rather let each growing season dictate what to do with the grapes. For the most part, they are fermented and aged in concrete tanks and forgo seeing any barrel for additional aging. This delicious and invigorating Tempranillo is a blend of multiple vineyard sites from the property. It showcases pure dark red, blue and black berry fruits with a piercing streak of earth and minerality. The balance is impeccable and the finish is long and energetic. Quite simply, pop the cork and enjoy!

Quinta do Noval Unfiltered Single Vineyard Late Bottled Vintage Port 2011

This is an unreal buy! Quinta do Noval is one of the hottest properties in Port. Their 2011 "Nacional" Vintage Port earned 100 points and sells for over $1000. This 2011 Single-Vineyard Late Bottled Port earned a raving 93-point review from Wine Advocate who quotes a price of $27. Our price looks to be lowest in the country! If you're looking for a Port to buy for yourself or as a gift, this is it.
93 Wine Advocate
(10/28/2016) "The 2011 Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage Port, a typical Douro blend, was bottled in 2016 with a long cork and 101 grams per liter of residual sugar after five years in barrel. This is brilliant. Sappy, intensely concentrated, remarkably complex and beautifully structured, this young LBV has plenty of room to grow in the cellar, too. It is young, unevolved and capable of development. The complexity that it has now, with a trace of herbs, rhubarb and generally classic Port flavors, is a hallmark, but that will increase and become more varied with age. The tannic pop will also calm a bit more, not that this is undrinkable now. This reeks of potential. Noval is one of my favorite unfiltered LBV producers and this is a fine moment for it. With a few years of bottle age, it might even seem better as it acquires more complexity."

Alexandria Nicole "A Squared" Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

92 Our Score
(11/2017) An exceptionally well-made Cabernet, the grapes for "A Squared" come from Alexandria Nicole's estate vineyard, Destiny Ridge, located in the Horse Heaven Hills appellation. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec and 2% Petite Verdot, it was matured for 20 months in French oak of which half was new and the other second year wood. Woody aromas along with black currant and a whiff of menthol make for a wonderful perfume. Very dense on the palate with mouthfilling flavors of black currant, black cherry and cedar. Complex with layer upon layer of flavor, great structure and refined tannins that soften quickly.

Domaine Andre et Mireille Tissot Cremant du Jura Extra Brut NV

91 Our Score
(11/2017) This delicious bottling is 50% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir with the local varieties of Trousseau and Poulsard making up the remaining 10%. The wine sees no dosage (the addition of sugar after the secondary fermentation) and the result is a bone dry "extra brut" wine with crisp and mouthwatering acidity complemented by a creamy palate. The finish is lengthy with subtle hints of nuts. This is a great substitute for Champagne if you're looking to increase value without sacrificing quality.

Rombauer Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

91 Our Score
(11/2017) This quintessential Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a relatively new addition to the Rombauer family's line-up. Produced entirely in stainless steel, it doesn't see one bit of exposure to oxygen before it is bottled; the first time the wine is ever exposed to air is when you open it! The resulting wine is literally bursting with freshness. Look for classic flavors of white peach, lemon, lime zest and just a touch of fresh cut grass. This is one VERY well made Sauvignon Blanc.

92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
91+ Our Score
(12/2017) Bow & Arrow is a small, husband and wife run winery dedicated to producing small-batch wines from organically grown Willamette Valley grapes. Their 2015 "Hughes Hollow" Pinot Noir comes from a 30-year-old parcel planted to the Pommard clone. This north facing vineyard does well in warmer vintages like 2015 and Bow & Arrow turned out a beautifully balanced, elegant and expressive Pinot. Like a great Burgundy, this wine needs a bit of air to open up and tell its story, but when it does, it is singing. Beautiful black cherry and dark raspberry fruits leap from the glass with secondary notes of dried leaves, rocky minerality, clove, nutmeg and a whiff of smoke. If tasted blind, you would surely think you were drinking a Pinot from the old world. This classy red is truly a steal at our way-below typical retail price.

In addition, there's really no barrel selection made, so don't think of this cuvee as a second wine. Like the Hapgood, it's a seriously rich, unctuous beauty that offers notes of buttered citrus rind, candied lemons, honeycomb and hints of minerality. Deep, rich and thrillingly textured, it's certainly the smart value play of the lineup as it's half the price, but more than half the wine." (California)

(11/2017) A blend of predominantly Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah, the 2016 Abstract is a silky, hedonistic powerhouse! Dave Phinney says this may just be his favorite vintage yet of Abstract and after tasting a few sample bottles, we understand why. The instant the wine hits your glass, you'll be bombarded by enticing red and black fruits aromas with an underlying nuance of earth that makes things even more interesting. The flavors explode on the palate, with concentrated raspberry, tart cranberry, sweet black plums, a splash of zesty pomegranate and rich black cherry leading the way. A second wave of flavors strikes on the mid-palate, featuring cedar cigar box, caramel, red earth and sweet vanilla cream. Complex, powerful and yet oh-so-soft, the 2016 Abstract is a champion wine.

G. D. Vajra "Albe" Barolo 2013

92 Our Score
93 Wine Spectator
93 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(2/2017) "Vajra's 2013 Barolo Albe is beautifully perfumed, sensual and expressive in this vintage, with a bit less overt fruit and more aromatic/structural intensity than is often the case. The style of the Albe has always favored a more succulent expression of Nebbiolo that is quite different from the single-vineyard wines, but the 2013 suggests Vajra may be moving the Albe closer in line stylistically to their other Barolos, which I think is a positive. In any event, there is an element of restraint in the 2013 that is hugely appealing. The Albe is a blend of fruit from Fossati, Coste di Vergne and La Volta aged in 75 hectoliter casks. The Albe may be the single best value in Barolo today. As for the 2013, don't miss it!"

Medium in body and offering tremendous depth, this refined bottle of California Pinot Noir absolutely delivers.

Louis Nicaise "Brut Reserve" Premier Cru Champagne NV

92 Our Score
(12/2017) Louis Nicaise sits in the Premier Cru village of Hautvillers, just down the road from Dom Perignon. A hugely over-delivering wine, this latest release of their Brut Reserve Champagne is a blend of 40% Chardonnay with 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier, based on fruit from the 2014 vintage. Clean and dangerously easy to drink, it offers citrus chalkiness and a delightfully giving finish. It is an ASTOUNDING value. Disgorged 5/2017.

93 Vinous, Ian D'Agata
(2/2017) "Bright deep red. Very perfumed, pure aromas of raspberry, red cherry, flint and violet. Juicy but dense, with vibrant acidity lifting the floral berry and cherry flavors on the long mineral finish, characterized by an especially silky mouthfeel. Knockout Brunello. Drinking window: 2023 - 2034."

Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

(10/28/2016) "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Freemark Abbey's generic bottling from Napa, is a brilliant example, and at $50, a heck of a value. It is also one of their larger cuvées at 24,332 cases. A blend of 75.1% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10.9% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, this wine spent nearly 26 months in oak. Opaque purple in color, it exhibits beautiful blackberry and blackcurrant fruit with hints of white chocolate, allspice and tobacco leaf. It is rich, full-bodied, seriously concentrated, and has 2013's relatively serious structure and tannic clout. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 25-30 years."

Bodegas El Nido "Clio" Jumilla 2015

(12/29/2017) "Tasting two completely different vintages of the same wine is very revealing, and having the 2015 Clio next to the 2014 showed how each of them revealed the character of the vintage. 2015 is a very complete and balanced year, resulting in classic, powerful wines with concentration and balance, and all that is needed to age in bottle. This is a similar blend as the 2014, mostly Monastrell with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for almost two years in French and American oak barrels. The oak is there, but it feels like the fruit is able to integrate it with some more time in bottle. In general, there is a lot more balance and freshness than in the 2014, and the character of the Monastrell is a lot more noticeable than the Cabernet. This should develop nicely in bottle. Drink Date: 2019 - 2024."

Hamilton Russell Hemel-en-Aarde Pinot Noir 2016

93 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
93 Wine Spectator
(12/15/2017) "Tightly focused, with a lovely beam of red currant, raspberry and bitter cherry coulis flavors racing through, enhanced by a bright iron note and backed by a long, floral-edged finish. Best from 2018 through 2023."
