(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."

Chappellet "Pritchard Hill" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

97 Wine Advocate
100 Jeb Dunnuck
(12/29/2017) "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill comes from the estate vineyard on Pritchard Hill and spent 22 months in new French oak. It has a similar level of purity, as well as incredible minerality, to go with notes of creme de cassis, scorched earth, crushed rock, and graphite. Reminiscent of liking a rock with its insane level of minerality, this full-bodied beauty is tight and closed on the palate, yet is just loaded with potential. It's only for those with cold cellars and needs forgotten for 7-8 years, but will keep for 4-5 decades. Bravo! Maturity: 2026 - 2066."

Bollinger "R.D." Extra Brut Champagne 2004

97 James Suckling
97 Wine Advocate
(6/29/2018) "Fermented in oak barrels and aged under natural corks for almost 13 years, Bollinger's 2004 R. D. Extra Brut blends 66% Pinot Noir with 34% Chardonnay from 16 crus, 88% of which are classified as Grand Cru. The wine opens with a very clear, deep, rich and aromatic but also pure and mineral-fresh nose of crushed rocks, cherries, brioche, pain aux raisin, white nougat, chalk and ripe, yellow-fleshed fruits. Highly elegant and complex on the weightless yet persistent and salty palate, this is an intense, densely woven, firmly structured yet elegant, beautifully refined and refreshing 'recent disgorgement' (February 2018) that reveals just a kiss of oxidative flavors that adds even more complexity. A great Champagne on its way to improve over many years in the bottle. Tasted June 2018. Drink Date 2018 - 2034."

Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame" Brut Champagne 2008

95 Wine Spectator
(11/30/2018) "An elegant Champagne, powered by a sculpted frame of acidity and minerality, this wears the refined, lacy mousse and well-meshed flavors of black currant, lemon curd, toast and marzipan like finely tailored clothing. Fresh and lasting, with hints of spice and smoke on the finish. Disgorged August 2016. Drink now through 2033."

97 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(12/2017) "One of the stars of the vintage, the 2015 Troplong Mondot has come together beautifully over the last year and half. Rich and sumptuous to the core, it is a classic wine from this property, built on serious fruit density and textural richness. Dark red cherry, plum, chocolate, new leather and spice are some of the many notes that build as the 2015 shows off its irrepressible personality. A viscerally exciting, resonant wine, it just needs a few years to shed some of its baby fat. Tasted two times. Drinking window: 2025 - 2040."

(10/31/2017) "The 2015 Chardonnay Ma Princesse is opulent and sexy, revealing alluring honeyed white peach, apple pie and guava notes with touches of allspice, brioche, praline and crushed stones. Full-bodied, with a gorgeous creaminess to the texture, it fills the mouth with tropical and savory flavors with seamless freshness, finishing with lingering savory nuances. 425 cases made. Drink Date 2017 - 2027."

Vilmart "Grand Cellier d'Or" Premier Cru Brut Champagne 2013

Importer Theise says of Vilmart's wines, which are arguably some of the greatest in all of Champagne, "This estate has undergone a subtle but profound ascension from the earthbound to the celestial." He awarded this vintage ++ / +++, which roughly translates to "Wow, that's good!" He is more eloquent in his description, "I wonder if a year from now we'll be talking about '13 the way we did about 2008 a few years ago. Because this is looking more and more like magic. This wine is lively and gushes the fragrance of mirabelles, with its typical sandalwood aromas arriving on the mid-palate and into the finish. Classy, buoyant, almost comically long. Deg 6/2017, it's 80-20 CH/PN."

Hidden Ridge Vineyard "55% Slope" Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

97+ Wine Advocate
(3/3/2016) "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon 55% Slope comes from the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas Mountains. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyard planted at 1,700 feet. This is a remarkable wine and reminiscent of the great classics from the golden era of the Mayacamas on the Napa side (such as the 1968, 1970, 1973 and 1974) come to mind when tasting this beauty. It is simply loaded. Dense purple in color, the wine has notes of licorice, crème de cassis, Asian plum sauce, cedar wood and earth. Full-bodied, opulent and irresistible already, it is capable (because of the impeccable balance and purity) of aging 20-25 or more years. This is a modern-day classic that could compete with very finest Cabernet-based wines in the world. Drink Date 2016 - 2041."

Corliss Estates Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

A superstar from the winemaking team of Andrew Trio and Philippe Melka. It's not often when Stephen Tanzer gives this kind of a review to a Cabernet!
96+ Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
(7/2016) "(Aged in 70% new oak for 28 months; this bottling will be labeled Red Mountain beginning with the 2014 vintage): Bright red-ruby. Extremely primary, pure aromas and flavors of inky cassis, blueberry, licorice and minerals. Tight and high-pitched in the mouth, displaying outstanding depth, energy and minerality but extremely closed in the early going. This huge wine finishes with chewy, late-arriving, toothdusting tannins that will require cellaring, even after the wine is released in the fall of 2018. Corliss has increased its use of tight-grained Saint-Martin barrels in this wine, and it will need a while to absorb the oak. Distinctly cool, even a bit medicinal, for the 2013 vintage, this is likely to be very long-lived. Winemaker Andre Trio told me he added a bit of Petit Verdot 'for back-palate texture and finer-grained tannins.' Drinking window: 2022 - 2034."

It's very deep purple-black colored with a nose that rocks up with wonderfully open, expressive crème de cassis, blueberries and warm plums with hints of cigar box, tilled soil and menthol plus a touch of pencil shavings. Full-bodied and concentrated in the mouth, the palate features black fruits and earthy layers framed by big, ripe, rounded tannins and great freshness, finishing long. 475 cases produced. Drink 2021 - 2039."

Intro

(11/2018) Big, beautiful and voluptuous, the 2016 Clio is a glass-staining purple in color with a nose that exhibits blackberry, blueberry, black cherry and spicy wood tones. The palate is full, rich and explosive with flavors of black and red fruits plus a bit of smoky bacon. The warm and concentrated palate is wonderfully inviting. There's a reason this wine has such a cult following. If you like powerfully fruity, smooth and dense wines, this is for you!

Chateau La Clotte St. Emilion 2015

From the owners of Chateau Ausone!
95+ Wine Advocate
(2/21/2018) "This was the first vintage for the Vauthier family of Chateau Ausone off this tiny three-hectare estate. Composed of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 85% new, the 2015 La Clotte displays a medium to deep garnet-purple color and a very spicy nose of cinnamon stick, cloves, star anise and allspice over core of red and black currants, mulberries and black soil plus a waft of violets. Full-bodied and decadently fruited with a firm backbone of very ripe, beautifully velvety tannins, it has a lively backbone providing loads of lift throughout the very long finish. Drink Date 2022 - 2044."

Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016

This is about as good as Chardonnay gets. If you are a true Chardonnay lover, don't hesitate. This one is worth every penny
96 Jeb Dunnuck
95 Wine Advocate
94 Wine Spectator
95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(3/2018) "Pahlmeyer's 2016 Chardonnay (Napa Valley) is bright, precise and nuanced, even though it underwent full malolactic fermentation and was aged in 100% new heavy toast Francois Freres barrels. Apricot, honey, dried flowers and lightly buttery notes get a kick of energy from the freshness of vintage and the personality of the mountain sites (Estate and Antica) that inform this bottling, Winemaker Bibiana Gonzalez-Rave has brought an added level of finesse to the Pahlmeyer Chardonnay. Drink 2018-2028."

Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The latest vintage from Caymus has arrived!
92+ Our Score
(9/2018) "The latest release of Napa's iconic Caymus Cabernet does not disappoint. While the deep ruby-purple color, wood influenced tones of toast and vanilla, and the concentrated cocoa-covered black fruit flavors are present, this 2016 version shows a bit more structure, including balancing acidity, complete tannins and a pleasingly deft touch of Napa Valley authenticity. Drinkable now, as Caymus always is, but with an ageability we've not seen for a few years. Well done Caymus."

Dominus "Napanook" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

93+ Wine Advocate
(10/31/2017) "Bottled in July 2017, Dominus' more approachable, less tannic sister wine, Napanook, is a blend this year of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Napanook Proprietary Red Wine is redolent of creme de cassis, potpourri, plum preserves and violets with hints of dark chocolate, menthol, licorice and charcoal. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is densely packed with black fruit preserves and earthy layers, supported by firm, ripe, fine-grained tannins and finishing with great length. Drink Date: 2017 - 2030."

Silver Oak Cellars Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Winemaker's Notes
"Our 2014 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a garnet color with a ruby red rim and bluish tint. It has an alluring nose of chocolate-covered strawberries, vanilla, nutmeg, truffle and sage. On the palate, it has a broad yet delicate entry and offers cranberry flavors. These flavors are complimented by raspberry and pluot flavors and savory black olive characters on the mid-palate. The wine finishes with silky tannins, cedar and bramble flavors with excellent length and return. Given proper cellaring conditions, this wine will be deliciously drinkable through 2038."

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.

The wine was largely fermented in oak, then aged just over a year in French oak (75% new). It holds the oak well, ending bright in juicy acidity."

Domaine Jehan Emonin Meursault 2016

93+ Our Score
(11/2018) This serious bottle of white Burgundy can hang with the best. Vincent Bouzereau produces this Meursault from 15 parcels, some of which are 1er Cru status. As with all his wines, there are no added enzymes or cultured yeasts and there is no warming of the cellar to induce malolactic fermentation. The wine was fermented in barrel and aged in 25% new oak. While there are hints of sweet vanilla and light toast, it is the mineral intensity that dominates. After time, flavors of crunchy lime and red apple come through, adding complexity and impressive length to this taut and youthful wine. The lively structure will allow this to drink well through 2025 and maybe beyond.

Made from 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Meunier, with 30% of the blend brought up in barrels, it boasts a rich, deep, medium to full-bodied style as well as terrific notes of lemon curd, creme brulee, caramelized stone fruits, and hints of toasty nuttiness that develop with time in the glass. It's a big, rich Champagne that stays balanced and pure. Beautiful stuff."

Guiborat "Prisme.13" Grand Cru Champagne NV

93 Our Score
(12/2018) Richard and Karine Fouquet farm eight hectares in the Grand Cru villages of Cramant and Chouilly. They sell most of their fruit to large houses, retaining a small amount to bottle under their own Guiborat label. While designated as nonvintage, the "Prisme.13" consists entirely of fruit from the excellent 2013 vintage. Disgorged in early 2017, it is replete with high-pitched tension and chalk-themed minerality. The palate is generous and concentrated, giving ripe lemon and yellow apple fruits on the long, complex, nicely textured finish.

Armando Parusso "44th Anniversary" Barolo 2014

93 Wine Advocate
94+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(2/2018) "Marco Parusso's 2014 Barolo is one of the most stunning wines of the vintage. In 2014, Parusso made a single Barolo that incorporates fruit from Mariondino, Mosconi, Le Coste and most of Bussia. Rich, deep and explosive on the palate, with stunning aromatic presence and overall intensity, the 2014 is remarkably vivid. Beams of supporting tannin give the wine its energy and persistence. Wild cherry, plum, mocha, dried flowers and lavender are some of the many nuances that take shape as this superb Barolo continues to show off its remarkable complexity and personality. The 2014 was vinified with 100% whole clusters and spent 24 months in French oak, 100% of it new. Drink 2022 - 2039."

Philippe Glavier "La Grace d'Alphael" Grand Cru Brut NV

92+ Our Score
(11/2018) Recently, when the local distributor of Philippe Glavier Champagne let us know this producer had just been picked up by Terry Theise, the most famous importer of grower-producer Champagnes, our ears perked up. We have previously enjoyed these wines, and this provided an opportunity for the very aggressive pricing! We love the ripeness and suppleness that comes from the notably rich 2015 vintage, rounded out with 30% of older reserve wine. The wine features a low dosage of 5g/L and beautiful purity. A properly ripe but focused Blanc de Blanc radiant with lemon, caramel and chalky highlights. An outstanding food wine, but graceful enough to impress as an aperitif as well.

Patricia Green Cellars "Freedom Hill-Dijon Clone 115" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2015

94 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
94 Our Score
(1/2018) Like the regular Freedom Hill Pinot, this bottling is sourced from one of the greatest vineyards in all of Oregon. Unlike that wine, this offering is made exclusively from a specific clone of Pinot Noir, known as Dijon 115, named after its Burgundy homeland. Explosive flavors of wild black cherry, wild strawberry, clay and red rock earth are layered with nuanced sweet wood spice and a very long, very impressive structure featuring medium-plus tannins and medium-plus acidity. This wine is so subtly beautiful and so young that if you popped it open and drank without allowing it to breathe, you'd miss most of what is waiting for you. Give this several hours in a decanter or several years in your cellar. It is such a special bottle, we'd hate to see you miss out on all the nuanced flavors hiding inside!

(12/2018) Imagine, a serious and quite scrumptious artisan Champagne that sells for roughly $10 to $15 per bottle LESS than the big production brands. Crazy! A better grower Champagne simply cannot be found at this price! Etienne, with help from daughter Virginie, crafts this wine from 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. Creamy orchard fruit and yellow flower flavors swirl across the finely moussed palate. Totally enticing, and simply delicious.

(8/2018) "This assyrtiko may not be as powerful as Sigalas's single-vineyard bottlings, but the 2017 excels in the simple joy and purity it transmits. It's a liquid landscape of Santorini, from the clean, salty scent of a white-sand beach to the blinding brightness of the white limed buildings, telegraphed here in sunny, pithy lemon flavors. It feels minimalist and yet dynamic, thirst-quenching and vital."

Domaine Vincent Ledy Bourgogne Rouge 2015

91 Our Score
(9/2018) Vincent Ledy produces this Bourgogne Rouge from a sustainably-farmed, low-yielding vineyard located directly across the road from famed Grand Cru site Clos Vougeot. From the excellent 2015 vintage, it offers structured, high-toned black fruits, intense minerality, clay and chalk earth tones and a structure normally reserved for pricier selections. A compelling Burgundy from a passionate artisan.

(7/31/2018) "The 2015 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills will be another terrific vintage and, while young, offers plenty of pleasure. Pineapple, citrus blossom, salty minerality and creamed corn all flow to a rich, beautifully textured, layered, young Chardonnay that's going to benefit from short-term cellaring and have 10-15 years of overall longevity. Like all of Greg's Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnays, it spent 10 months in neutral barrels."

Obsidian Ridge "Obsidian Ridge Vineyard" Red Hills of Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

91+ Our Score
(12/2018) Crafted by Vin Chicago alum, Alex Beloz, this latest release of Obsidian Ridge continues to impress, showing a tremendous amount of depth and elegance. A harmonious balance of black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit flavors are layered with oak-driven complexities of mocha, cedar and baking spice. The finish is long and smooth with silky tannins that glide across the palate. The value of this mountain grown Cab is exceptional - it beats Napa at its own game. As the winery likes to say, "The grapes don't know which county they're in."

Keo "St John" Commandaria NV

93+ Our Score
(12/2018) A deliciously rich dessert wine from Cyprus, Commandaria was initially produced by the Knights Templar not long after Richard the Lionheart conquered the island in 1191. Following harvest, the grapes are left to dry and concentrate in the sun. They are pressed and fermented, then aged solera style in barrel, drawn from the bottom and bottled. The result is a tawny-port like drink with a rich texture and deep dried fruit and floral flavors. Long, spicy, complex and wonderful!

Sporting a vibrant ruby/purple color as well as gorgeous notes of black raspberries and blue fruits, violates, bouquet garni, and spring flowers, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, bright acidity, and firm tannin, all of which give it a masculine feel, despite having plenty of upfront fruit.

This is an old, balanced, traditional vineyard that yields wines with very good depth and natural balance. There is perfect ripeness here and a notable absence of those green pepper aromas that often mask the personality of many Cabernets. These old vines yield very concentrated juice and it shows in the tannins and acidity, which show in perfect harmony."

Hints of snow pea pods accent tropical fruit notes in a wine that is soft, round and harmonious, showing ample concentration and length despite the rain-plagued harvest. Unlike the 2005, a freakish vintage that continues to drink well, I'd opt for drinking the 2017 over the next year or two. Drink Date 2018 - 2019." (New Zealand)

(12/31/2017) "Espresso, sanguine and gamey flavors give this firm red a savory character, but there's a core of plum and currant fruit. Offers a good balance of firm tannins, balsamic acidity and dense texture. Drink now through 2023. 1,000 cases made. Smart Buy"

(8/2016) "Pure Tempranillo fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in barrel for some 14 months, this is a ripe and juicy 'crianza' that was hitting it on all cylinders when I tasted it, with vibrant fruit and very tasty flavors, truly delicious. Highly recommended and incredibly priced."

Honig Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

87 Wine Advocate
(10/29/2018) "The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc leaps from the glass with gregarious white peach, lemon curd and key lime pie with hints of lemongrass and wild thyme. Medium-bodied, crisp and refreshing in the mouth, it delivers mouth-filling stone fruit and citrus flavors, finishing with an herbal lift."

Domaine Skouras Peloponnese Moscofilero 2017

91 Wine Advocate
(4/27/2018) "The 2017 Moscofilero (as Skouras spells it) comes in with four grams of residual sugar, 6.2 grams of total acidity and 12% alcohol. The combination makes for a dry wine with a lively feel and vivid flavor. Sourced from vines at 650 meters, this is always crisp and elegant. So, too, this year. Wonderfully aromatic as well in its youth, this is exuberant, gloriously fresh and intensely fruity. The fruit is always lifted, though. Then, it just coats the palate, despite its elegant demeanor. It lingers beautifully on the rather tense finish. On the first day tasted, if it was lacking anything, the fruit was not quite as focused. It was, after all, tasted only about 30 days after bottling. It still has some room to grow, and retasting it the next day clearly proved that. It seemed to answer all questions, barely budging in development but just seeming more precise and focused. This should be a great wake-me-up in the summer, when it will be in better form. It might actually be even more attractive in the spring of 2019. It should also hold nicely for a few years, as past reports have demonstrated, but many won't bother. Being fresh is what this is all about."

Charles Smith "Substance" Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

93 Jeb Dunnuck
(4/5/2018) "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was vinified in tank before being pressed to barrel where it went through malo. Aged 13 months in barrels, its vibrant purple color is followed by a terrific bouquet of blueberries, cassis, scorched earth, and spice. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, this is the real deal, ladies and gentlemen, and it's a no-brainer purchase. Just pretend you paid three times the price. Maturity: 2018 - 2025."

Llenca Plana Montsant 2016

90 Our Score
(12/2018) Ideally situated at one of the highest points in Montsant, this family-owned winery only makes one wine - and it is all about quality over quantity. Their commitment can be seen at every level of the winemaking process. Grapes are hand-harvested, gently destemmed and carefully selected. The result is this wonderfully balanced, food-friendly red with flavors of dark berries, garrigue, gravelly minerality and bramble. Pair with your favorite charcuterie plate, roast duck or grilled pork chops.
