Piancornello 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."

Famille Perrin "Domaine du Clos Tourelles" Gigondas 2015

94 Wine Advocate
97 Jeb Dunnuck
(10/2017) "The finest vintage to date, the 2015 Gigondas Le Clos des Tourelles comes from a tiny vineyard located just inside the village of Gigondas. Incorporating a touch of Syrah, this Grenache dominated beauty reveals a deep ruby/purple color as well as off the chart notes of black raspberries, black cherries, pepper, garrigue, and tons of that classic Gigondas spice. I wrote "Wow" more than once in my notes and this full-bodied 2015 has ultra-fine tannin, perfect balance, and a stacked mid-palate. Give bottles 2-3 years and drink over the following 15+ years."

Fattoria di Felsina "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva 2015

95 James Suckling
94 Wine Spectator
94 Wine Advocate
(10/31/2018) "The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia is a tremendous wine with an impactful yet very elegant bouquet. The central theme here is darkness and richness, and you get both of those things to the extent that Sangiovese can offer. The magic here is that Sangiovese sticks stubbornly to its inner grace and elegance, especially in a classic vintage such as this. Gravel alberese soils add to the wine's overall sharpness and detailed focus. There is a touch of sweet cherry confit ripeness on the close. Drink 2019 - 2035."

Herman Story Wines "Nuts & Bolts" California Syrah 2016

95 Jeb Dunnuck
(11/29/2018) "Moving to the 2016s and a wine that always delivers, the 2016 Nuts & Bolts has lots of White Hawk character in its white pepper, cedar, underbrush and black and blue fruits. Made from 100% Syrah aged in 80% new wood, this beauty is concentrated, full-bodied, and silky, with no hard edges. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years. Maturity: 2018 - 2025."

The Hilt "The Vanguard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2013

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $49.99!
95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(8/2015) "Dark, pliant and seductive, the 2013 Pinot Noir Vanguard wraps around the palate with striking depth and pure textural richness. Smoke, tobacco, licorice and spices inform the super-expressive aromatics. With time in the glass, the 2013 shows a deeper, darker register. Drink this bold, racy Pinot over the next decade or so. The 2013 is 100% Sanford & Benedict, done with fully destemmed fruit and aged in 40% new oak."

Walter Hansel "Cuvee Alyce" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2016

95 Wine Advocate
(6/28/2018) "Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Cuvee Alyce leaps from the glass with gregarious black cherries, pomegranate and cranberry notes with touches of red roses, lavender and dried Provence herbs plus a waft of black soil. Medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and great freshness, it is simply packed with taut fruit and finishes on a lingering mineral note. 896 cases produced. Drink Date 2018 - 2029."

Arterberry Maresh "Old Vines" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2016

96 Wine Advocate
(8/31/2018) "Pale to medium ruby in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Old Vines has a lovely pure nose of pink peppercorn, dried black tea leaves, red and black licorice and violets with dried cranberries, red cherries and layers and layers of spice. Medium to full-bodied, it has amazing concentration of flavor in the mouth, blossoming out to pure red fruits and spicy layers, with cinnamon and autumn leaves accents, very fine-grained tannins and juicy acidity, finishing very, very long with tons of earth-laced fruit. Wow! 1,040 cases produced. Drink Date 2018 - 2030."

Fattoria di Felsina "Rancia" Chianti Classico Riserva 2013

95 Wine Advocate
96+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(10/2016) "Felsina's 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia bristles with energy, with veins of underlying acidity that give the wine its focus and drive. Dark red cherry, plum, rose petal, herb and licorice are some of the signatures. Most of the Felsina Chianti Classicos are defined by their dark fruit and savory notes, but the Rancia is also wonderfully bright and lifted from start to finish while staying very much true to the house style. Today, the Rancia gives the impression it will unwind at a glacial pace. I imagine most bottles of the 2013 will be drunk before the wine truly enters its prime. Drinking window: 2023-2043."

Mount Peak "Gravity" Sonoma County Proprietary Red Blend 2014

95 Wine Advocate
(10/2016) "Even better [than the Cabernet and the Zinfandel] is the incredible 2014 Proprietary Red Blend Gravity, which is an intriguing blend of 33% Petite Sirah, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Zinfandel and the rest Syrah, Grenache and Barbera aged in 28% new French oak. Virtually all of it comes from the Monte Rosso Vineyard with tiny quantities from Frei Ranch and Snows Lake vineyards owned by Gallo. Another exuberant whopper at 15.9% alcohol, the wine is an opaque purple color, with notes of pen ink, creosote, black truffle, blackberry, blueberry, and a hint of white chocolate in a full-bodied, massive, layered, rich and concentrated style. Interesting enough, the alcohol at 15.9% is balanced by the wine's rather zesty acidity and modest pH of 3.46. This is a killer wine at a great price for something this profound."

Bodegas Aalto Ribera del Duero 2015

95 Jeb Dunnuck
(2/21/2018) "The 2015 Aalto is a gorgeous wine, and even at the retail price of $50, is a value. Loaded with notions of blackberry and cassis fruits, vanilla, graphite, and high-class oak, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, has beautiful concentration, and ripe, polished tannin. It certainly has a modern slant, yet is balanced, has terrific purity, and a great finish. Give it a few years."

Francois Villard "Jouvet" Cornas 2016

95 Wine Spectator
(11/30/2018) "This throws a plume of white pepper and violet notes out first, followed by a racy, tightly focused beam of bitter cherry, damson plum and red currant coulis flavors. Shows terrific cut through the finish due to a mouthwatering iron accent. A beauty that will live a long life. Best from 2020 through 2035. 625 cases made."

Arnot-Roberts "Trout Gulch" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay 2016

96 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(4/2018) "The 2016 Chardonnay Trout Gulch is wonderfully polished, nuanced and transparent. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and chalk notes give the Trout Gulch its distinctive, bright flavor profile. In some years, the Trout Gulch has leaned towards the more austere of the Chardonnay spectrum. The 2016 has all the energy of the more tightly wound vintages, but with a bit more textural resonance that is the result of the wine having spent more time on its lees during aging. Drink 2020 - 2026."

Forman Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(9/2015) "Ric Forman's 2014 Chardonnay is a real stunner. A bit riper than it usually is, the 2014 possesses superb richness and intensity, but tapered with the vibrant, blocked-malo style that Forman pioneered in Napa Valley. The 2014 is a wine of push and pull that engages all the senses with superb textural balance and tons of nuance. Lemon oil, orchard fruit, almonds and dried flowers open up, but above all else the 2014 is a wine of feel. The balance here is just unreal."

Sojourn "Durell Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2013

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $47.99!
95 Wine Advocate
(12/2014) "A steely, mineral-dominated white, the 2013 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard was made from the Old Wente clone and was aged in 40% new oak. A pebbly, rocky minerality along with notes of white peaches, honeysuckle and a subtle touch of roasted nuts emerge from this full-bodied, complex, impressively endowed, multilayerd wine. It is capable of evolving for 5-6 years."

Ridge "Lytton Springs" Dry Creek Valley Red 2016

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(8/2018) "The 2016 Lytton Springs is a powerful, dense wine. Black cherry, plum, lavender, new leather, cloves, licorice and menthol flesh out. Deep, plush and richly textured, the 2016 Lytton Springs packs a real punch. The 23% Petite Sirah is felt in the wine's darkness and overall gravitas. There is more than enough richness and structure to support many years of fine drinking. What a gorgeous wine this is. Drink 2022-2041."

Kumeu River "Hunting Hill" Kumeu Chardonnay 2015

95 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2016) "The 2015 Hunting Hill Chardonnay displays a youthful restraint, yet nonetheless delivers an exciting array of stone fruit, pink grapefruit, ginger and marzipan notes with subtle hints of orange blossoms, crushed stones and lightly buttered toast. Medium bodied and tightly woven, is has a lively backbone supportting the generous flavor layers, finishing with great length and depth. As usual - just gorgeous! Drink Date 2017 - 2027."

Descendientes des Palacios "Villa de Corullon" Bierzo 2015

94 James Suckling
95 Wine Advocate
(8/31/2017) "Ricardo Pérez Palacios told me his favorite overall vintages for Bierzo are 2001, 2012 and possibly 2015, because he sees them as very complete years, even if 2015 didn't have as perfect conditions as 2001 and 2012; the 2015 Corullón is a perfect example of that, a really pretty wine, open, where I see the similarities with 2012. They use many of the vineyards year after year, all of them around the village of Corullón, all planted with a field blend of varieties, and they have been increasing the percentage of white grapes from those vines that they include in the cuvée. In 2015, it can be almost 9%, mostly Palomino, and they feel it polishes that slight bitterness in the finish of the Mencía, reminiscent of green almonds. Of course, there are also other red grapes, like Alicante Bouschet, Gran Negro, Pan y Carne and Negreda, that might contribute to some 2% of the volume. 19,572 bottles, 720 half bottles, 450 magnums, 45 double magnums and 30 Jeroboams were filled between May 11th and 17th of 2017."

Terlano "Vorberg" Alto Adige Riserva Pinot Bianco 2015

96 Vinous, Ian D'Agata
(12/2018) "Pale straw-gold. Beautiful nose of white stone fruit, lime, lemon verbena, beeswax and minerals; this is an absolutely captivating expression of Pinot Bianco at its best. Then similar flavors on the palate, but richer and riper than usual for this wine, with a long flavorful saline finish that offers repeating floral nuances. Pinot Bianco (Weissburgunder in German) does not get any better than this. Drink 2018 - 2033."

Donnhoff Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Spatlese 2016

95 Vinous, David Schildknecht
(4/2018) "The site-typical nose delivers a head-turningly fragrant rush of buddleia and heliotrope, while anticipating the juicy, piquant, crunchy fresh red raspberry, pit-inflected white peach and lime that dominate a silken, almost creamy, yet animatingly bright palate. Inner-mouth perfume rises seductively as fresh ginger adds incisive invigoration and an influx of quince reinforces the sense of richness. On one level, the finish is penetratingly bright and vibrantly animating, preserving invigoratingly piquant hints of seeds and pits. Yet simultaneously it seems to float with near-endless suspension into the ether, subtly echoing the complexities that went before and adding a mouthwatering hint of salinity."

Chateau Barde Haut St. Emilion 2015

95 James Suckling
95 Jeb Dunnuck
(10/15/2018) "Based on an 80/20 split of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Barde-Haut is a tour de force and a spectacular wine any way you look at it. Creme de cassis, dried flowers, earth, and loads of limestone-like minerality all flow to a full-bodied, opulent wine that has sweet tannins and a great mid-palate. Drink this uber-sexy beauty any time over the coming 15+ years. Maturity 2018 - 2033."

Saint Jean Barroux "La Pierre Noire" Ventoux 2014

95 Jeb Dunnuck
(2/21/2018) "A total gem in the vintage, the 2014 La Pierre Noire is an insanely good wine made from 80/20 Grenache and Syrah that spent three years in concrete tanks. Black raspberries, kirsch, pepper, garrigue and liquid flowers notes all soar from the glass of this incredibly elegant, seamless, silky red that does everything right. With medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin, no hard edges and a seamless texture, it's at the top of the heap in 2014. Don't miss a chance to try this beauty! Maturity: 2018 - 2030."

Leitz Rudesheimer Berg Roseneck Katerloch Riesling GG 2014

95 Vinous, David Schildknecht
(5/2016) "White peach, mirabelle and lemon are pungently mingled with lavender, lemon peel, iris and ocean spray in a head-turning aromatic array that surges from the glass. Silken in feel and ultra-bright, the animating palate impression introduces a mouthwatering impression of oyster liquor while preserving wafting inner-mouth perfume. A buoyant, penetrating, consummately refreshing finish is at once concentrated yet subtle in its complexity. That this wine was refused Grosses Gewachs status for being 'too light' speaks volumes about - though hardly speaks well of - the entire Grosses Gewachs project to date and the way in which that imprimatur gets assigned. At 12.5% alcohol, this can hardly be called alcoholically light wine. Was it perhaps the wine's lift, filigree detail, animation or shameless pandering to human thirst and sensual longing that disturbed the judges? Drinking Window: 2016 - 2028"

Knez Winery "Cerise Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2014

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(2/2016) "Dark red and purplish hued fruits, wild flowers, mint, spices and rose petal notes meld together in the 2014 Pinot Noir Cerise Vineyard. The Cerise is deceptively medium in body, but it packs serious intensity. Expressive, floral-infused aromatics give the Cerise its inner sweetness and perfume, while beams of underlying tannin give the wine its shape. This is another superb wine from Knez. Drink 2017 - 2022."
