97 Jeb Dunnuck (8/28/2018) "The 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Les Quartz comes from soils loaded with quartzite stones and is another Grenache-dominated blockbuster from this estate. A translucent, ruby-colored effort, it just oozes Provencal charm in its ripe red and black fruits, building minerality, garrigue, pepper, and spice aromas and flavors. Deep, full-bodied, beautifully textured, and seamless, it has no shortage of tannins and is going to benefit from short-term cellaring. Still, it's certainly in the new style of the estate and brilliantly done."
96 Vinous, Josh Raynolds (4/28/2018) "Lurid ruby. A complex, hugely perfumed bouquet evokes red and blue fruit preserves, exotic spices, incense and floral oils, along with a vibrant mineral quality that builds steadily as the wine opens up. Alluringly sweet, seamless and broad on the palate, offering densely packed yet lithe raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that show remarkable clarity and back-end power. The mineral and floral components drive an extremely long, sweet finish that's given shape by smooth, well-knit tannins. The interplay of power and finesse here is awfully impressive. This wine, along with its Le Reserve sibling, is a standout in what has turned out to be a monumental vintage for the region."
97 Wine Advocate (8/31/2018) "Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and velvety, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Quartz is a complete thoroughbred. A blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah, it offers up stunning aromas of crushed stones, tea roses, black cherries and licorice. A powerhouse, loaded with extract, it finishes long and intense, picking up hints of chocolate and star anise. It appears capable of evolving for a couple of stunning decades."

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
