Domaine du Tariquet "Classic" Cote de Gascogne Blanc 2016

87 Our Score
(9/2017) A great all-purpose sipper, this blend of 45% Ugni Blanc, 35% Colombard, 10% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Gros Manseng is crisp, clean, dry and - at 10.5% ABV -relatively low in alcohol. Smooth and refreshing, it offers a pretty combo of citrus and tropical fruits that will have you coming back for another sip.

Bodegas Casa Castillo Jumilla 2015

91 James Suckling
90 Wine Advocate
(6/29/2016) "The wine formerly known as 'Monastrell' is now simply 2015 Casa Castillo because it is now a blend of Monastrell with some 10% Syrah and around 5% Garnacha and it will continue being a Monastrell-based blend with some more Garnacha, maybe up to 15%, in the future. I previewed a tentative blend of this 2015 and then tasted the bottled version a few weeks later. It shows ripe fruit, red and black, some spiciness and plenty of Mediterranean herbs. This feels young but it has no edges, it's juicy and supple, young but accessible. It will be much better after a few months in bottle, so hold the cork if you can resist it."

Robert Mondavi "Private Selection-Bourbon Barrels" Monterey County Chardonnay 2015

90 Our Score
(10/2017) The team at Robert Mondavi has tried something a bit different with their latest Chardonnay. To say we were skeptical would be an understatement, but the reality is this unusual offering is really dang good! Aged in used Bourbon Whiskey barrels for two months, this quite tasty, oak-flavored juice gives vanilla, caramel and sweet smoke tones followed by baked orchard and tropical fruit notes - including yellow pear and pineapple. Creamy in the mouth and well-balanced, this impressive Chardonnay is well made and quite delicious.

Broadside Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

88 Our Score
(10/2017) Because of drought related low yields, the folks at Broadside decided to use the fruit intended for their single vineyard Cabernet in this regular Paso Robles bottling. The resulting wine was matured for 14 months in a combination of French and American oak. Fruit-forward in both the nose and on the palate it offers rich flavors of black currant and notes of toasty oak and green olive. Very rich with youthful tannin, there is a lot going on here. Making things even better it's a buck less than the previous release!

Alois Lageder Alto Adige Pinot Grigio 2016

89+ Our Score
(10/2017) Lageder's Pinot Grigio is as consistent as Chicago weather is inconsistent. (In other words, the Lageder family nails it every single year with this "real" Pinot Grigio.) Look for ripened citrus and orchard fruit notes along with a hint of peach. Richly textured, it has a nicely honeyed nuance and bright finish.

Domaine Lafage "Bastide Miraflors" Cotes du Roussillon 2015

This is one of the most exciting buys in Vin Chicago's 84 year history! Comparing it to one of California's most sought-after $250 cult wines, Wine Advocate awards a stunning 94 points to this "almost too good to be true" red. We offer this unicorn-of-a-wine to you for just $12.99 per bottle. Crazy!
94 Wine Advocate
(4/28/2017) "This wine is almost too good to be true. A blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks (Grenache) and demi-muids (Syrah), the 2015 Bastide Miraflors Vieilles Vignes reminded me of a mini Syrah from California's Manfred Krankl (yes I just compared a $14 Syrah to Sine Qua Non). It's a ripe, sexy, heady beauty that exhibits a deep, purple color as well as killer notes of smoked meats, chocolate, blackberry and black raspberries. Deep, unctuous, open knit and layered, it continues to change in the glass, has a seamless and silky profile, and not a hard edge to be found. It's a sensational value that needs to be tasted to be believed. Drink it anytime over the coming 2-4 years. Drink Date 2017 - 2021."

Chateau du Cedre "Cedre Heritage" Cahors Malbec 2015

89 Our Score
(10/2017) Just southeast of Bordeaux sits Cahors, a tiny appellation in which the wine production is nearly three-quarters Malbec. The 2015 Cedre Cahors is a brighter and lively alternative to the ubiquitous Argentine malbec, showcasing an old world sensibility with notes of earth and satisfyingly grippy tannins. A rich garnet color in the glass with ripe fall berries, bing cherry, toasty spices, black pepper and nutmeg filling out the palate in this unique and complex expression of the varietal. Pop a couple bottles with friends on a Sunday with your favorite football season chili recipe!

Can Feixes "Blanc Seleccio" Penedes 2016

90 Wine Enthusiast
(11/1/2017) "Apple, melon and apricot aromas are pure and come with zero interference from natural funk or oak. A blend of mostly Parellada with Macabeo and other white grapes, it hails from the highest vineyards in the Penedès. Flavors of melon, lime and wet stones reflect gravelly soils, and it's steady on a long finish."

Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt "RK" Mosel Riesling 2015

From the best vintage yet of this century, the quality of this entry-priced wine is superb. Leans to the drier side of off-dry.
90 Our Score
91 Wine Enthusiast
(12/1/2016) "Editors' Choice - Superbly warm weather in 2015 gave an extra boost of sunshine to many of the Mosel's entry-level wines, and the RK is one of the best. Whiffs of freesia and tangerine peel waft from the glasss of this semidry Riesling. It's low in alcohol, yet so honeyed and ripe that flavors of grapefruit and peach seem to slick sumptuously on the palate. Zesty lime acidity freshens a lingering finish."

Catherine Marshall Elgin Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

91 Our Score
(9/2017) Hailing from South Africa's cool-climate growing region of Elgin, this latest release of the Catherine Marshall Sauvignon Blanc is as stunningly delicious as the previous vintage. The style of this mouthwatering beauty is closer to that of Sancerre then New Zealand. Clean and crisp green apple leads the way with supporting notes of gooseberry, lemon zest and subtle green herbs. The balance is superb with a soft texture, bright acidity and a long finish with underlying minerality. Enjoy this amazing value all week long on its own, or pair it up with fresh salads, seafood, and veggies.

92 Wine Advocate
(6/30/2017) "There are two new single vineyard Garnacha bottlings, starting with the impressive 2015 Malayeto, 2.39 hectares of vines averaging 35 years of age; the vines are planted at 520 meters altitude on limestone rich soils in the village of Fitero. It fermented in 3,500-liter French oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in French barriques for nine months. It's subtle, elegant and quite transparent, with a bright ruby color, a nose of red berries and spices and a sleek palate with marked flavors and a subdued minerality. A superb Garnacha for the price. 10,750 bottles were filled in December 2016."

Bright black fruits, including cassis and black raspberry, tobacco, bell pepper and cocoa are all found here. The soft palate and easy tannins make this a super friendly, drink-it-on-a-Thursday-with-burgers kind of Cab.

Les Fils de Rene Quenard Mondeuse Chignin Vin de Savoie 2015

(10/2017) This dry red comes from the Savoie region of eastern France, specifically from the Cru (sub-zone) of Chignin. Made from 100% Mondeuse, it is juicy with a light tannic grip. Tasting like the offspring of a solid Cotes du Rhone with a well-done Beaujolais Villages, this red is very fresh with vibrant deep red and blue fruits and dusty earth notes. A singular wine, try it with roast chicken, grilled fish or sausages. Yum!

(10/2017) The delicious white and Rosé "Owl" wines from J. Mourat have a faithful following at Vin Chicago. We're excited to offer their next level up with this bone dry Chenin Blanc. Tight and youthful, this nervy, chalky white is immediately recognizable as Loire Valley Chenin, though a bit less rich and "blousy" than Vouvray Sec or Saumur Blanc. Instead of baked pear, we find tangerine, lemongrass and boxwood honey. Decant for several hours if possible. A delicious Thomas Calder selection.

Ampeleia "Unlitro" Toscana Rosso 2016 1.0 LT

Our initial batch of Unlitro sold out in a flash email offering. We've reloaded and are thrilled to have this gem from Elisabetta Foradori back in stock!
91 Our Score
(7/2017) This is the entry tier red for Elisabetta Foradori's Tuscan project and it took us by surprise. It comes in a striking package - a super hip "squat" 1-Liter bottle. So, what's in the bottle? It's based on Alicante Nero, also known as Grenache (yes, Grenache in Tuscany!), blended with smaller percentages of Carignan, Mourvedre and Alicante Bouschet. The nose is super juicy and fresh, with pure red fruit tones of black raspberry, black cherry and cassis. Secondary notes of pepper, grainy red earth, sweet herbs and hints of barnyard add further complexity and tons of character. The wine has a wonderfully elegant texture, similar to a great Pinot Noir. "Unlitro" is drinkable by itself and with pretty much any pairing you can think of. With modest alcohol and bright structure, it is super versatile. It has a tremendous amount of personality that keeps revealing more layers of flavor as it opens.

(10/2017) The small Tuscan commune of San Gimignano was awarded Italy's first DOC recognition in 1966. In 1971, proprietor Elisabetta Fagiuoli vinified the first vintage of Montenidoli and they have been one of the best producers of the region ever since. In the challenging vintage of 2014, they turned out one of the best wines of the region earning 92 and 91 points from Wine Enthusiast and Wine Advocate. This 2015, while not yet rated, is even better! 100% Vernaccia, it sees extended skin contact that leads to wonderful richness. Plenty of minerality, dried flowers, hay and dried spice notes add to the character. Pair this with beauty with olive oil based pastas and all kinds of fresh seafood dishes, including sushi!

(10/2017) The summer of 2014 was the warmest on record in Walla Walla. The heat continued into the fall and was accompanied by cool nights allowing for perfect ripening of the Cabernet fruit. As a result, Amavi's 2014 is more forward at this stage then their previous two vintages. Lots of black currant and black cherry flavors coat the palate. There's a great structure and balance of acidity and tannin that just melt in the mouth. Amavi Cab has been a Vin favorite for quite some time and this is the best one yet.

(8/2/2017) "The 2015 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills checks in as a blend of the 3D, Acin and Machado Vineyards, and it's brought up identically to the single vineyards. 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)

(8/31/2017) "Bright, pale ruby in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Reserve delivers expressive kirsch, pomegranate and raspberry leaves notes with underlying lavender, rosemary and underbrush hints. Medium-bodied with loads of energy and grace in the mouth, it has exuberant red cherry and earth flavors with great length and depth. Drink Date: 2017 - 2023."

R. Lopez de Heredia "Vina Tondonia" Reserva Rioja 2004

94 James Suckling
94 Wine Advocate
(4/2015) "The 2004 Viña Tondonia Reserva is a completely different story. It is a worthy follower of the 2001, the greatest of the Viña Tondonia Reservas of recent times. It has the usual blend and usual levels of alcohol and acidity, bottled after six years in oak barrels. The nose feels savory (if that's possible-umami?) and developed, with tertiary aromas and good balance between spices, leathery notes, cherries and balsamic notes of cigar box and incense. The palate is both round and crisp, with refined tannins. It has very good balance with subtle acidity and very good persistence. Drink Date: 2015 - 2024."

Frog's Leap Napa Valley Merlot 2014

91+ Our Score
(10/2017) Frog's Leap proprietor John Williams credits the movie "Sideways" with actually saving Merlot! He believes that it helped to weed out the "plonk" Merlot that was being made, leaving grapes made with the care and attention to detail that this noble varietal deserves. The 2014 Frog's Leap is an excellent example of what Merlot should be. Dark cherry, plum and blueberry fruit dance on the palate with a spicy, velvety finish. A stunningly elegant wine, this should not be missed.

Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

92+ Our Score
92+ Wine Advocate
(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."

Xavier Vins "Cuvee Anonyme" Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge 2010

95+ Wine Advocate
(10/2012) "Xavier Vignon, along with Philippe Cambie, are probably the two most highly renowned oenologists in Chateauneuf du Pape as well as some of the surrounding Cotes du Rhone regions. He is the consultant for such well-known domaines as Raymond Usseglio, Jerome Quiot, Beaurenard, La Nerthe, Mont Redon, Marcoux, Grand Veneur and La Gardine. The blend of Xavier Vignon's Chateauneuf du Pape can vary considerably. Vignon told me that it is a selection from nearly 120 different parcels in the appellation. Fashioned from the best fruit from old vines planted in the finest parcels is the Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme. The powerful, rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Anonyme reveals an off-the-chart level of extract, lots of glycerin (nearly 16% natural alcohol) and copious black cherry, blueberry, forest floor, lavender and graphite characteristics. This full-throttle red requires 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades."

Buglioni Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2010

A monster wine here! If you like 'em big, ripe and fun then you are going to love this one. If you prefer a more elegant style of Amarone, this 17% ABV slegehammer is most definitely not for you! Median online retail is $55. Last time we checked, our price beat every single listing by a wide margin.

(8/31/2016) "Rich and layered, with juicy acidity and velvety tannins focusing the flavors of black cherry pâte de fruit, dried marjoram, clove and singed orange peel. Accents of mineral, spice and herb linger on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,000 cases imported."

Chateau Montelena Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

92 Our Score
92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(9/2016) "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific introduction to the vintage at Montelena. Brisk and energetic, the 2014 offers a good bit of nuance and aromatic complexity. The flavors are dark and intense, but the 2014 is very much medium in body, as these wines are. There is no shortage of muscle and power, especially at this level. Hints of iron, smoke, leather and herbs inform the muscular, virile finish. Drinking window: 2019 - 2034."

Domaine Rosiers "Cuvee Besset" Cote Rotie 2014

94+ Our Score
(10/2017) A delicious expression of northern Rhone Syrah, the 2014 Cuvée Besset offers intoxicating floral aromas and deep flavors of smoke, olive and red fruits. Soft, elegant and accessible, with very impressive structure. Considering the multitude of $100+ Cote Rotie bottlings, this is a very fair price.

Beaux Freres "The Beaux Freres Vineyard" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015

95 Wine Spectator
95 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(1/2018) "Deep lurid red. Intensely perfumed aromas of raspberry liqueur, vanilla, Indian spices and potpourri, along with a hint of smoky minerals that builds in the background. Densely packed and alluringly sweet, showing impressive depth and a bright mineral core to the sappy red berry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors. Gains power with air while maintaining energy and focus. Smooth tannins build slowly and harmonize with the vibrant fruit on an impressively persistent, floral-driven finish."

96 Wine Spectator

(12/30/2016) "Gorgeously opaque blue/purple in color, the wine offers up notes of blueberry and blackberry fruit, some licorice and graphite, followed by a full-bodied, layered and opulent wine with terrific fruit intensity, great purity, and class and presence on the palate. This is sensational stuff, and the best wine I have ever tasted from Revana. Drink it over the next 15-20 years."
