Hartford Court "Fog Dance" Green Valley of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2015

Only a few cases available of this vibrant small-batch gem from Hartford Court!
94+ Jeb Dunnuck
95 Wine Advocate
(12/29/2017) "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Hartford Court Pinot Noir Fog Dance Vineyard gives a full on bombastic black cherry and black raspberry-scented nose with hints of rose hip tea, dark chocolate and lavender with a hint of black pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate is very elegant and fresh with more of a savory/earthy character coming through, supported by fine-grained tannins and finishing on a beautiful stewed tea note. 361 cases were produced. Drink 2017-2025."

93 Jeb Dunnuck
95 Wine Spectator
96 James Suckling
(1/2018) "A wine with playful, attractive character. An array of red, blue and purple fruits. Gently spicy, chalky and fragrant, it has a very supple, fleshy and layered palate with a web of fine, smooth and supple tannins. Extremely elegant and composed. A long draw on the finish. Great depth and drive. This will live super long. Try after 2020."

Albino Rocca "Vigna Loreto Ovello" Barbaresco 2015

96 Wine Spectator
(9/30/2018) "Highly Recommended. Pretty cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors define this elegant, supple red. Firmly structured and beautifully integrated, leaving a lingering aftertaste of iron, tobacco and underbrush. Best from 2022 through 2042. 200 cases made."

Chateau Le Prieure St-Emilion 2016

98 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(12/2018) "One of the unquestioned Sleeper jewels of the year, the 2016 Le Prieure is off the charts beautiful. Silky and impossibly refined, the 2016 is a wine of pure and total precision. Today, the 2016 is a bit more restrained than it was from barrel, when it was a more overt wine. That is not a bad thing, though, as I suspect the 2016 is going to need a number of years to be at its finest. Dark, beautifully perfumed and gracious, Le Prieure represents the height of finesse in Saint-Emilion. Jean-Claude Berrouet consults for the Artemis Group, which is now the sole owner of Le Prieure. The 2016 is a fabulous wine by any measure. Don't miss it. Drinking window: 2024 - 2041."

(10/9/2018) "The vibrant floral and white-peach nose is very attractive and, on the palate, this stunning dry riesling is simultaneously concentrated and subtle. The finish is very long and racy. Drink or hold."

(10/20/2017) "I love the polish and complexity to this red. It delivers subtle currant, dried herb and spice character as well as a full body that is tight and focused. Such polished tannins. It goes on for minutes. One of the best vintages in years!"

Vinedos de Paganos "El Puntido" Rioja Gran Reserva 2006

95 James Suckling
93 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
94 Wine Advocate
(6/28/2010) "The 2006 El Puntido is purple-colored with a fragrant nose of wood smoke, espresso, Asian spices, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense, round and smooth-textured, this opulent effort is loaded with luscious fruit and has enough structure to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink this lengthy effort from 2016 to 2026."

Talley Vineyards "Rosemary's Vineyard" Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir 2015

95 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(11/2017) "(aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 35% of them new) Brilliant red. A suave, expansive bouquet evokes fresh red berries, potpourri, incense and smoky minerals. Sappy, alluringly sweet and light on its feet, offering intense raspberry, cherry and floral pastille flavors that are braced by a suggestion of bitter blood orange. Plays power off delicacy with a sure hand, showing no excess weight but displaying abundant red fruit character. Fine-grained tannins lend shape to a strikingly long, smooth finish that leaves a sexy rose pastille note behind. Drinking Window: 2021 - 2028."

Dumol "Wester Reach" Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016

95+ Wine Advocate
(12/13/2018) "Opening with vibrant grapefruit, lemon grass and yuzu scents, the 2016 Chardonnay Wester Reach delivers compelling nuances of honeysuckle, orange peel, crushed rocks and fresh ginger on the nose with a waft of allspice. Medium-bodied with a tantalizing suggestion of creaminess to the texture, the palate gives energetic citrus and mineral layers with a racy backbone and long, spice-laced finish." (California)

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $68.99!
96 James Halliday
94+ Wine Advocate
(6/29/2016) "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Brooks Road Shiraz possesses baked blueberries and Black Forest gateau flavors. This Syrah is meaty - savory in style rather than a fruit-bomb - with dark chocolate and licorice nuances. Rich and full-bodied with firm, chewy tannins, it is more structured on the palate. The finish is long and harmonious. Drink 2016-2030."

K Vintners "The Beautiful" Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2015

97 Jeb Dunnuck
98 Wine Advocate
(6/29/2018) "Co-fermented with 3% Viognier, the 2015 Syrah The Beautiful is fabulous, bursting from the glass with exotic aromas of violets, blackberries, panforte, black olives and lychee nuts (fanciful though that mélange sounds). On the palate, it's full-bodied, velvety and lavishly textural, cutting a broad swath across the palate, with a deep core of dark fruit and pungent savory nuance, concluding with a fine-grained, mouthwateringly sapid finish. It's a compelling Syrah that brooks no argument. Drink Date: 2018 - 2033."

Fattoria di Felsina "Fontalloro" Toscana Rosso 2015

97 Wine Advocate
(10/31/2018) "The 2015 Fontalloro is a landmark achievement. The bouquet strikes out with immediate complexity. It dangles aromas of black cherry, spice, tar, forest floor, wild rose and campfire ash in front of your nose with seductive allure. The unified presentation and delivery of all those aromas is profound and impressive. This edition of Fontalloro is exceptionally smooth and silky in texture and this is surely linked to the ripe, soft and finely textured fruit produced in this vintage. This is a pure expression of Sangiovese that is aged in barrique for up to 22 months. Drink Date: 2020 - 2040."

95 Jeb Dunnuck
94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(6/2017) "The 2015 Pinot Noir John Sebastiano Vineyard is a racy, voluptuous wine. Unapologetically flamboyant, it exudes depth and pedigree. Dark red/purplish fruit, wild flowers, mint, lavender and sweet French oak flesh out in this creamy, super-expressive Pinot. This is another superb wine from Peake Ranch. Drinking window: 2018 - 2025."

Martinelli "Giuseppe & Luisa" Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2016

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(1/2018) "The 2016 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa screams with personality. Bright, red-toned fruit, floral overtones and hints of tobacco all flesh out in the glass, but it is the wine's textural richness and silkiness that elevate the 2016 into the realm of the truly compelling. Racy and super-varietal, the Giuseppe & Luisa is simply a great expression of Russian River Zinfandel. The Giuseppe & Luisa emerges from a parcel planted by Lee Martinelli Sr. with cuttings taken from the original Jackass Hill vineyard his grandparents planted in 1899. Drinking window: 2020 - 2036."

98 James Suckling
(8/29/2018) "The trademark, old-vine-grenache offering of earthy notes with wild berries, herbs, flowers and spices. Wild. Hints of blood oranges and pink-grapefruit peel. Superb, expansive palate shape, all finesse and length. Super-fine, focused and elegant. Refined, regal and majestic. Peppery, bright, wild, red fruit, blood oranges and orange bitters. Decades ahead of this. Drink or hold."

Alzinger "Ried Hollerin" Smaragd Riesling 2017

95 Wine Spectator
(3/1/2019) "Elegant yet richly flavored, with white cherry, blood orange and ripe melon notes. Very creamy midpalate, adding to the structure and texture, offering complexity and a broad, echoing finish of allspice, white chocolate and fleur de sel accents. This is all about texture and minerality for now, so give it some time. Best from 2021 through 2033. 147 cases imported."

(6/15/2018) "An intense perfume of juniper, bay laurel, sage, rose and berry marks this silky red. The structure is there, yet superb balance and refined tannins help this retain elegance through the long finish. Almost ethereal in its presence. Best from 2021 through 2036."

Girolamo Russo "San Lorenzo" Etna Rosso 2014

96 Wine Advocate
(8/31/2017) "The 2014 Etna Rosso San Lorenzo is a vintage darling and an exceptional expression from Sicily. Like the Feudo di Mezzo, this wine shows a sweet note of stone fruit, dried apricot and honey that segues to more traditional nuances of wild berry, dried cherry, allspice and rum cake. I don't recognize those unique characteristics in any other wine from Etna. San Lorenzo shows determination and momentum with integrated tannins and points of fresh acidity that keep your attention. I love the balance and the tension shown by this wine. It offers an extremely impressive level of density, volume and strength. Drink Date: 2018 - 2035."

Chateau Bellefont-Belcier St. Emilion 2015

93 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(2/2018) "Powerful, dense and explosive, with notable thrust to the red cherry, plum, leather and licorice flavors, the dramatic, full-throttle 2015 Bellefont-Belcier is every bit as impressive as it was from barrel. Dark red cherry, mocha, new leather and spice build into the racy, voluptuous finish. The tannins need time to soften, but all the elements are in the right place. In a word: terrific. Drink 2020 - 2035."

Jonata "Todos" Santa Ynez Valley Proprietary Red 2013

95 James Suckling
94 Wine Advocate
(8/30/2016) "The entry level 2013 Todos Proprietary Red Wine is a smokin' wine that's made from 78% Syrah, 15% Sangiovese, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Viognier, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot. Full-bodied, supple, elegant and concentrated, with impeccable balance, it offers lots of purple fruit characteristics, spice, dried flowers and underbrush aromas and flavors. It's one of the more approachable wines in the lineup, yet it will evolve for a decade or more on its purity and balance. Drink Date 2016-2026"

Gerard Duplessis "Montmains" 1er Cru Chablis 2016

98 Wine & Spirits
(4/2019) "Lilian Duplessis took over his family's domaine in 1999, and farms 19.8 acres of vines under organics (Ecocert certified). He has two parcels in Montmains, about 60 years old, which he vinifies separately with ambient yeasts in stainless steel, where the wine rests for 12 months before spending six months more in barrels. Aside from his holding in Les Clos, he finds that these parcels in Montmains produce his longest-lived Chablis. His 2016 is among the greatest wines I've tasted from chardonnay vines, partly for its pure fruit essence, more for its heart-stopping delicacy. It fills the head with scents of white flower petals and white truffles, crisp apple, green pear and shellfish broth. Obtuse in its delicious angles and perspectives on a vineyard in Chablis, this is full of life, that sensation lasting outside of time as those seductive scents and flavors continue to unfold."

Pinancornello Brunello di Montalcino 2013

93 Wine Spectator
96 Vinous, Ian D'Agata
(4/2018) "Deep red-ruby. Highly perfumed, mineral aromas of raspberry, red cherry, violet and iron. Wonderfully sappy but youthfully imploded in the mouth, this remarkably precise and well-delineated Brunello offers an extremely refined set of flinty red and black fruit herbal flavors. Finishes with a firm edge of tannins and very good floral and spicy lift. An outstanding, very pure and deep wine that really needs about a decade of patience. One of the Brunellos of the vintage."
