St.Urbans-Hof "Goldtropfchen" Piesporter Ausleses Riesling 2015

95 Wine Spectator
(12/31/2016) "Plush and fruity, with concentrated red peach, melon and apricot tart flavors that are layered with plenty of rich, spicy notes. Plush creaminess lingers with unctuous honeyed accents on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 200 cases made."

Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 2015

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."

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."

Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

95 Decanter
93 James Suckling
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."

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."

K Vintners "The Deal" Wahluke Slope Syrah 2015

95 Jeb Dunnuck
(4/5/2018) "All from the Sundance Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, the 2015 Syrah The Deal (100% Syrah, not destemmed and aged in 30% new puncheons) offers smoking notes of red and black fruits, black olive, smoked earth and a huge meatiness. Full-bodied, silky and seamless, with a rock, mineral, backward style. Maturity: 2020 - 2028."

Virna Barolo 2013

95 James Suckling
(7/12/2017) "Tar, orange peel and strawberry aromas follow through to a full body with chewy and powerful tannins and a long and flavorful finish. A structured and intense wine. Don't miss this. Crazy quality for a straight up Barolo blend. Much better in 2021."

Jaffurs "Thompson Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Petite Sirah 2014

95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(6/2016) "One of the many highlights in this range, the 2014 Petite Sirah Thompson Vineyard is another superb wine from Jaffurs. Here it is the wine's inner sweetness and perfume that stand out most. The firm Petite tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the sheer voluptuousness of the fruit. Sweet red and blueberry jam, wild roses and a bit of sweetness from the 20% new oak barrels comes through nicely."

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."

Scattered Peaks Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

One of only two North American wines to win a Platinum medal in this year's Decanter World Wine Awards. The other, also a Napa Cabernet, goes for $190 per bottle!
97 Decanter
(5/2018) "Roasted herb, coffee, black cherry and blackberry fruit compote on the nose. The palate is rich and concentrated but never heavy, with a lively acidity providing a sense of movement. Tannins are mighty and show that this will blossom with more time. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot."

Chateau Coutet Barsac 2015

95 Wine Advocate
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."

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."
