Limerick Lane Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2016

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
95 Jeb Dunnuck
(6/5/2018) "The 2016 Zinfandel Russian River Estate is another gorgeous wine from this estate. Plums, sandalwood, Asian spices, and a hint of cigar all flow to a seamless, elegant Zinfandel that shows the class and quality of this vintage. With medium to full-bodied richness and building, fine tannin, it has complexity, texture, and length. Bravo!"

In what must be a first for the wine world, James Suckling leads off his 99-point review for the 2015 Chateau Rieussec by proclaiming "OMG." If you enjoy having a dessert wine once in a while, this is one you should not miss. Drink now or hold for decades. A very special wine.

(2/5/2018) "OMG. This is amazing. This is the new 2001. Incredible purity of botrytis and ripeness. Full-on. So driven and precise. Full-bodied, very sweet and electrified. Pineapple jam and mangoes - endless tropical fruits. This ends very clean and is almost tannic on the finish. A truly great Sauternes. Energy. Drink or hold."

96 James Suckling
(11/9/2016) "Very pretty aromas of dark fruits with rosemary and sea-like undertones. Full-bodied, layered and dense, yet there's an underlying energy that brings you back to savor each sip. Lovely to drink now but will improve with age. From biodynamically grown grapes."

Samsara "Turner Vineyard" Santa Barbara Syrah 2012

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $41.99!
93+ Wine Advocate
95+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(6/2015) "Once again, the 2012 Syrah Turner Vineyard is the star of the show at Melville. An exotic mélange of blood orange, violets and spices makes a strong first impression. Deep and beautifully layered on the palate, the Turner offers superb depth and plenty of tannin to back it up. An explosive, vibrant finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. This is a real head-turner from SAMsARA and proprietor Chad Melville."

Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

92 Wine Advocate
(12/29/2017) "Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley-blended of 78.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 5.6% Malbec and 2.2% Cabernet Franc-has a compelling perfume of dried roses, fragrant herbs and dusty earth over a core of crushed plums and blackberries with a waft of tobacco. Medium-bodied, lively and expressive in the mouth, it has a pleasant pluminess accented by herb and earth notions, finishing long and chewy."

R. Lopez de Heredia "Vina Tondonia" Reserva Rioja 2006

95 Wine Advocate
(2/28/2018) "The red flagship 2006 Vina Tondonia Reserva was inspired by the vineyards of the Medoc but produced with local grapes, 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacho, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, which achieved 13% alcohol in 2006. It always matures in used American oak barriques for some six years. The oldest of all the reds I tasted, it was also the one with more freshness, which speaks to the quality of the vineyard. Drink 2018 - 2028."

Domaine Raspail-Ay Gigondas 2015

96 Decanter
92 Wine Spectator
(10/15/2018) "Very solid, with a core of steeped dark plum, fig and black currant fruit that is still a bit coiled up, while singed cedar, lavender, savory and tobacco notes peek throughout. Shows a light sanguine echo on the finish. Just wait this out a bit longer in the cellar. Best from 2020 through 2025."

Full-bodied, silky and seamless, with a rock, mineral, backward style. Maturity: 2020 - 2028."

Red Newt Cellars "Lahoma Vineyards - The Knoll" Finger Lakes Riesling 2014

92 Wine Advocate
95 Vinous, Kelli White
(7/2016) "An extraordinary wine, this is Finger Lakes dry Riesling at its finest. The nose is an exotic combination of kefir lime, lemon candy, mint, and thyme. The palate is just as expressive as the nose, offering a perfect balance between flesh and acid-rather than one swelling as the other dwindles, they march in sync from entry through to finish. A wine of remarkable intensity and purity, the 2014 The Knoll concludes with an epic finish of tremendous mineral depth. 5 grams per liter residual sugar. Drinking window: 2016 - 2031."

(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."

95 Wine Spectator
(12/31/2018) "Highly Recommended - A fresh, detailed style, exhibiting cherry, black currant, licorice, leather and iron aromas and flavors. This firms up as the latent structure emerges on the finish, yet the lasting impression is of equilibrium and sweet, ripe fruit. Best from 2020 through 2038."

Gai'a Estate "Thalassitis" Santorini 2017

95 Wine Advocate
(6/29/2018) "The 2017 Thalassitis is an unoaked Assyrtiko coming in at 13% alcohol. This is a bottling I usually prize for its freshness, elegance and lively demeanor. This year, one in which the wines could have a lot of concentration if you could avoid heat spikes, it has all of those things still, but it seems to lean to a deeper style instead of an exhilarating one. Overall, it finishes with a big hit of fruit, nicely supported by its acidity. On the first day tasted, it was a bit stolid. The next day, it reminded me of Thalassitis again-big acidity slicing and dicing that fruit, even in a year when it seems very dense and ripe. The score went up notably. The gripping and tense finish, by the way, seems endless. This does lack its usual finesse, so we'll see where it goes when it unfolds. This does have some things to prove in the cellar. In the new Santorini Assyrtiko trend, it is no longer acceptable to make wines that just drink well for five years, at least not if you want to be at the top of your game. It mostly seems pretty super, and it is worth leaning up right now. Drink Date 2018 - 2027."

Alvear Solera 1927" Pedro Ximinez NV

96 Wine Enthusiast
98 Wine Advocate
(11/29/2015) "The NV Pedro Ximenez Solera 1927 is non-vintage, but does have some 1927 material in it. This is totally dark brown/amber with notes of figs, toffee, caramel syrup, molasses and coffee. It is dense, super sweet, intense, rich and an amazingly, unctuously textured, thick beverage to consume slowly and introspectively after a meal. Drink now through 2050, or even longer."

Chateau Coutet Barsac 2015

96 Jeb Dunnuck
(11/30/2017) "A heavenly dessert wine, the 2015 Château Coutet boasts a huge nose of caramelized citrus, crème brûlée, tangerine, and honeysuckle. With huge richness and sweetness, moderate acidity, a thick, fat mouthfeel and a blockbuster finish, it's borderline over the top yet holds it together. It will be interesting to see how this evolves, but it's undeniably gorgeous today. Maturity 2018 - 2038."

E.Guigal Crozes-Hermitage Rouge 2015

92 Our Score
92 Jeb Dunnuck
96 Wine & Spirits
(2/2019) "This is a strapping Crozes-Hermitage, and a terrific example of the combination of power and finesse possible in the 2015 vintage. Culled from parcels in four villages, most of the vines growing on steep granite slopes, the wine is initially gruff and ungiving, the fruit walled off by tannins, oak and the simple density of the extract. But give it a few hours in a decanter and the structure begins to fill with flavor, juicy blackberry and plum notes welling up to meet the austere minerality head-on. It feels more Hermitage than Crozes, the firm tannins and deep, concentrated flavor demanding more time in the cellar to relax and reveal their detail."

91 Vinous, Neal Martin
96 James Suckling
(12/22/2016) "A brambly and perfumed wine that has plenty of sappy red cherries and spices. It's full of fragrances and sweet-berry perfumes, not to mention a little touch of rose petals. Crisp tannins come into play from the get-go on the palate, heralding flavors of raspberries and red cherries. A beautifully defined, long and balanced style. Majestic structure and a deep and focused finish. Best from 2018 and up to 2025."

(11/30/2018) "Aromas of plums, cherries and hints of green olives. White truffles and deep earth, too. Full-bodied, so layered and beautiful with a fabulous texture and ripe tannins. It is so pure and minimalist in the end, showing the effect of traditional, hands-off winemaking. Don't miss this. Decant before serving. One for the cellar. Drink or hold."

Conreria d'Scala Dei "Black Slate" Escaladei Priorat 2016

The latest gem from Eric Solomon's "Black Slate" series of single-village Priorat!
95 Jeb Dunnuck
(2/21/2018) "One of the gems in the Black Slate lineup is the 2016 Black Slate Escaladei which is 90% Garnacha, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Carinena, all of which spent 18 months in foudre and barrels. It offers an incredibly perfumed style as well as more red fruits, white flowers, kirsch, and beautiful minerality. With medium to full-bodied richness, a light, silky texture, and sweet tannin, it pretty much maxes out the QPR scale and is a gorgeous wine. 900 cases. Maturity: 2018 - 2023."

Jorge Ordonez Victoria #2 2014

95 Wine Advocate
(11/29/2015) "An absolutely amazing, decadent, luxurious sweet wine, made from 100% Moscatel de Alexandria, the 2014 Botani Victoria #2 comes from the estate's oldest 50-year-old vines and, according to Jorge Ordoñez, it takes 17 pounds of grapes to make one 375-milliliter bottle of this elixir. Truly great stuff, it has loads of honeysuckle, caramelized tropical fruits, hints of maple syrup and brown sugar. The wine is rich, fragrant with plenty of flowery notes intermixed with wet pebble-like minerality. It is full-bodied and unctuously textured, but has enough acidity to balance the sweet, rich texture. Drink it over the next 3-4 years."
