Plump and dense, with a core of minerality, the "Lot 170" gives layered flavors of ripe red apple, yellow apple, white peach and tangy lemon along with medium-plus acidity and a clean finish.

Cape Point Vineyards "Noordhoek" Cape Town Sauvignon Blanc 2017

91 Vinous, Neal Martin
(8/2018) "The 2017 Noordhoek Sauvignon Blanc, from the Cape Point estate, carries the new name for what was hitherto Cape Point Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc. As such, it has the "Cape Town" Wine of Origin designation. This comes from selected parcels on the estate, blended with 3% Semillon, and saw eight months lees contact. The bright, vivid bouquet features fresh green apple, kiwi fruit and Conference pear aromas that are well defined. The palate is well balanced with bright fresh green apple, pear, gooseberry and light citric notes, a fine bead of acidity and good length on the finish. Very fine. Drink now and over the next five or six years. Drinking Window: 2018 - 2026."

La Posta "Estela Armando" Mendoza Bonarda 2017

Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
(7/2018) "Dark red-ruby. Inviting high-pitched aromas of blackberry, dark raspberry, bitter chocolate and violet. Densely packed, fine-grained and sweet; a fresh, firm fruit bomb of a Bonarda with just a bit of the variety's leathery funk leavened by a violet topnote. From vines that are more than 80 years of age. Finishes with sneaky rising length and firm, smooth tannins. A stunning value."

It is classic in style, with deep red fruit and black pepper flavors along with a hint of herbs and a wild game note. Traditional, delicious and a delight to drink either by itself or with food.

Domaine Labbe Abymes Vin de Savoie 2018

89+ Our Score
(5/2019) This wine simply screams for a warm day on the patio! The Savoie region of eastern France sits right on the Swiss border. It is better known for skiing and cheese than it is for wine, but that should not be the case, as the wines here are fun and tasty as well as dense and impressive. This crisply textured, bone dry bottling comes from Abymes and is made entirely from the Jacquere grape. While only 11% ABV, the wine feels weighty and presents salted, mineral-laden apple and lemon flavors along with a long finish that expands with oxygen. A very cool white that packs more than the first few sips suggest.

Carchelo "C" Jumilla 2016

(5/2019) Rich and round on the palate with a velvety finish, the 2016 Carchelo "C" is an over-delivering blend of 35% Monastrell, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Tempranillo and 10% Syrah. Each varietal was vinified separately, then blended together and aged for four months in French oak. Offering an intense perfume of dark berries and earth along with good complexity and great balance of berry, oak, mineral and acidity, this drinks like a $20+ bottle.

A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Swartland Chenin Blanc 2018

90+ Our Score
94 Wine & Spirits
(2/2019) "Drought conditions followed by a cool harvest season produced a stunning version of Adi Badenhorst's entry-level chenin. He took an unusual approach in 2018, harvesting the fruit over the course of 12 days and adding each day's fruit to the already-fermenting musts. All of it was whole-bunch pressed, and one-quarter was fermented in old casks, the rest in tanks. Left on its lees for seven months with occasional stirring, the final wine is as deep and rich in flavor as its yellow hue predicts: It moves from waxy apple flavors to mango, wildflower honey and tangerine. It feels all of a piece, bright acidity holding the flavors taut and firm, a large-boned chenin fit for a crown roast of pork. All that for $16."

Full-bodied, deep and layered with incredible texture, I actually called this a mini SQN. I would gladly pay three to four times the going rate. Bravo! Drink Date 2017 - 2022."

Porta del Vento Terre Siciliane Perricone 2014

92 Vinous, Ian D'Agata
(9/2017) "Good bright dark red. Vibrant, high-pitched aromas of red cherry, wild herbs, flint and flowers (lavender, rose, violet). At once bright, juicy and dense, with terrific energy and focus to the red berry, floral and crushed stone flavors. Offers remarkable freshness and precision on the long finish, which features a palate-saturating yet weightless texture. A remarkable Perricone that combines the best elements of well made wines with Sangiovese (brightness, perfume, tannins) or Pinot Noir (fruit and minerals). Spends only eight days on the skins, then ferments in cement tanks, all of which contribute to the wine's bright, fresh fruity personality. Ages two years in large oak barrels."

Comte Leloup du Chateau de Chasseloir "Cuvee des ceps Centenaires" Muscadet Sevre-et-Maine sur Lie 2014

From the oldest parcel of vines in Muscadet, this remarkable 2014 is the current release from Chateau de Chasseloir!
92 Our Score
94 Wine & Spirits
(4/2019) "Part of the region's Cru Communaux, the Comte Leloup is 7.4 acres of vines that are more than 100 years old. Bernard Chéreau ferments the wine in stainless steel and ages it on the lees for ten months, followed by at least two years in bottle. The vines, growing in schist and slate, deliver fruit with smoky depths, the wine lasting on ripe peach, honeydew and bitter melon, all of its richness wrapped in juicy tart-apple freshness. It's broad and intense, floral and savory, a wine to decant for a roasted whole fish stuffed with fennel."

Wimmer-Czerny "Fumberg" Gruner Veltliner 2017

93 Wine Advocate
(12/28/2018) "Hans Czerny's 2017 Grüner Veltliner Fumberg is a picture book "GV" from the Wagram. The subtle bouquet is bright, fine and fresh but also ripe and just beautifully balanced, with a very delicate and fresh, even flinty-scented aroma. Highly delicate and elegant on the palate, this is a stimulating, piquant and salty Veltliner with both tension and finesse. It is also stimulatingly pure and salty in the finish. For many, many years this has been one of my favorite Grooners in all Austria because it is so delicate, like almost no other wine from this variety. If you are looking for the finest Veltliners of the 2017 vintage, Czerny's highly delicious, biodynamic 2017 Fumberg should be one of your choices. Tasted in Vienna, September 2018. Drink Date 2018 - 2033."

(10/1/2018) "Eyrie pioneered this variety and continues a half century later to break new ground. It's aromatically complex and elegant, with compelling flavors of waxy apple, grapefruit and star fruit. The wet stone acidity keeps it lively and fresh, but based on the winery's history, this is a Pinot Gris that can age quite well. Drink now to 2030 and perhaps beyond."

Mas d'En Compte "Black Slate" Porrera Priorat 2016

94 Jeb Dunnuck
(4/3/2019) "The 2016 Black Slate Porrera comes from a project of importer Eric Solomon focusing on the specific villages in the Priorat. The 2016 is 60% Grenache and 40% Carignan that was mostly destemmed and spent a full year in used barrels. Thrilling blue fruits, tar, rose petals, and a smoky, marine, iodine-like character all emerge from this full-bodied effort that opens up nicely with time in the glass. Tasting like it cost three times the price, it picks up more minerality with time in the glass, has beautiful balance, and great purity of fruit. It would be hard to find a better value. Drink bottles over the coming 3-5 years."

Boen Sonoma/Monterey/Santa Barbara Pinot Noir 2017

Many of you know the story of Joe Wagner's sale of the Meiomi brand to Constellation in the summer of 2015. The big news this year is that Wagner is back in the Tri-County Pinot Noir business! With this new Boen bottling, he puts his skills - and likely some of the same vineyard contracts that used to go into Meiomi - to good use. There are rich, generous, yummy flavors of black cherry, raspberry coulis, black plum skins, smoke, mocha, thyme and spice. The finish is even and clean. If you were a fan of Meiomi when it was in its prime, you'll love this one!

BLANKbottle "Don't Look Back" Swartland Clairette 2017

BLANKBottle is the label of South African winemaker Pieter Wasler. Rather than focusing on a few varietals or a particular style, most of Pieter's wines are one-off projects, sometimes rather obscure, always very well made. This wine is named as an ode to Pieter's former assistant, Julia, who not long ago left for France. The image on the label is of Julia looking over her shoulder and Pieter's message to go forward and "don't look back".
91 Our Score
(3/2019) Made from very old bush vine Clairette from Swartland, the wine is quite finessed, unique and delicious. Hip and decidedly natural, the wine is fresh, inviting and bursting with layers of apple blossom, lemon zest, subtle crunchy pear and waves of minerality. This unusual white is great to drink on its own or with your favorite seafood.

(3/2019) Don't let the simple "Bourgogne" appellation fool you on this gorgeous red Burgundy from David Duband. The grapes that go into this wine are from 40-year-old vines located in Chambolle-Musigny and Morey-St. Denis. They are picked and sorted by hand and then fermented with 40% whole clusters. Gentle aging in French oak barrels, 30% which are new, lends to the silky and soft texture. The wine is clean and fresh red fruit flavors of cherries, strawberries, raspberry and pomegranate are accented by beautiful red floral tones and subtle oak spices. Elegant and totally delicious to drink, this beauty is priced right in the sweet spot for a red Burgundy of this quality.

Domaine Eric Forest "L'Ame Forest" Pouilly Fuisse 2016

93+ Our Score
(4/2019) Eric Forest is one of the most exciting growers in the Burgundian village of Vergisson. While his wines are of a singular style, they present a level of quality and power that compares favorably to substantially more expensive bottlings from Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault. His "L'Ame Forest" PouillyFuisse is sourced from a pair of meticulously tended vineyards originally planted by Eric's grandfather in 1963. Embracing organic and biodynamic practices, Eric makes this wine, and all of his wines, entirely by hand. Decadent flavors of vanilla, crème brûlée, baked pear, yellow and green apple, and apricot are complemented by an abundance of chalk and clay mineral tones beneath the reserved surface. Burgundy lovers, this wine is nothing short of a bargain. Beautiful and impressive, it will drink wonderfully through 2025.

93 Wine Advocate
95 Jeb Dunnuck
(3/1/2018) "The 2015 Alto Moncayo is knockout stuff and a solid step up over the 2012.

It has full body, sweet tannin, and a sexy, seamless, elegant style that just begs to be drunk. Maturity 2018 - 2026."

Girolamo Russo "Feudo di Mezzo" Etna Rosso 2016

A robust "Tre Bichieri" winning red from the slopes of Mount Etna!
94 Wine Advocate
(12/28/2018) "One step up on the intensity ladder, the 2016 Etna Rosso Feudo di Mezzo shows a greater degree of concentration and darkness compared to A'Rina and Feudo. The Feudo di Mezzo vineyard delivers gusty, ripe and dark fruit characteristics. You get dark cherry and plummy fruit with spice, tar and licorice at the back. This is a beautiful expression from Etna. Drink Date 2019 - 2030."

Ulysses Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

96 James Suckling
96 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
95 Jeb Dunnuck
95 Wine Advocate
(10/31/2017) "Possessing mere splashes of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon has a beautifully expressive creme de cassis nose with underlying black cherries, chocolate box, star anise and violets plus touches of pencil shavings and beef drippings. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers a quiet intensity of black fruits and restrained earthy layers supported by chewy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long with mineral and savory nuances. It has lovely elegance and depth. It needs another 2-3 years in bottle, then it should cellar gracefully over the next 20+ years. 1,000 cases were made."
