Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013 375ml Product #30013 (In Stock)
Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013 375ml Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013 375ml

Half Bottle  Always a delicious value, the 2013 Catena Chardonnay may just be the best ever.  A blend of oaked and tank-aged wine, it crackles with fantastic fresh apple, pear, peach and pineapple fruit framed by notes of crushed mint and toasted hazlenut.  The vivid fruit pumps on through the juicy finish where Burgundy-like minerality and creamy toast notes linger.  Fantastic stuff.

"The Catena 2013 Chardonnay mixes grapes form Agrelo (15%) and the rest from different zones in the Uco Valley (Tupungato and San Carlos, Eugenio Bustos and Altamira). 50% of the wine fermented in used oak barriques, 10% in new 500-liter French oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel. Part of the barrels go through malolactic fermentation, but not all. 2013 feels ripe despite the character of the vintage, and although the oak is a lot less noticeable than in previous vintages it provides creaminess that makes it approachable and easy. The palate is soft and the acidity is quite integrated with the fruit. An approachable, nice Chardonnay."Wine Advocate 90 points

Half Bottle.  A blend of Sangiovese plus 5% each of Colorino and Merlot aged in neutral cask.  Pretty and fresh with enough cut to handle red sauce nicely.

"Pretty cherry and strawberry notes pick up light touches of spice in this red, which is elegant, but needs air to show the fruit and tone down the oak. Fine length. Drink now through 2019."Wine Spectator 90 points

Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Dry 375ml Product #27794 (In Stock)
Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Dry 375ml Dolin Vermouth De Chambery Dry 375ml

Dolin Vermouth's are pretty much the same today as they were when first introduced in 1821.  Made from white wines and fresh and dried herbs and botanicals from Chambery, they are all complex, fresh, and just as delicious on their own as they are in a complex cocktail.

The dry style vermouth shows a pure, almost sweet-smelling, nose of white wine, herbs and wormwood.  In the mouth it's pure, herbal, and very clean with just enough body and ripe fruit to impart roundness.  Finishes clean, complex, and fresh with no bitterness.  This would be a fine match with fresh pesto!

Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2013 375ml Product #30012 (In Stock)
Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2013 375ml Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2013 375ml

Half Bottle  The 2012 was the best Macrostie Chard we'd had in years - but the 2013 is better still.  From vineyards in Carneros, the Russian River Valley, and Wildcat Mountain.  Rich and lush, with plenty of sweet pineapple and tropical fruit, a lash of butter, and bright green apple acids to hold everything in balance. Our favorite value so far from the outstanding 2013 California Chardonnay crop.

Here's a ripe, balanced, Zinfandel that will be as much fun to pair with bold foods as it is to just enjoy on its own.

"Bright ruby-red. Red berry and cherry aromas are brightened by cracked pepper and fresh flowers. A tangy midweight that offers fresh cherry and raspberry flavors, energizing acidity and a silky texture. Gains sweetness on the finish, with the peppery note repeating."International Wine Cellar 89 points

Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Mt. Jefferson 2012 375ml Product #29647 (In Stock)
Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Mt. Jefferson 2012 375ml Cristom Pinot Noir Willamette Mt. Jefferson 2012 375ml

An Oregon classic, with 40% whole-cluster fruit used in the great 2012 vintage.

"The 2012 Mt Jefferson Cuvée Pinot Noir comes from vines located above the winery augmented by purchased fruit from notable vineyards. It contains around 40% whole-cluster fruit (one of the central tenets at Cristom), and only undergoes one racking during its 12 months in barrel: one just before filtration and then just before bottling. It has an attractive tertiary/woodland-scented bouquet with dried rose petal notes coming through, much less fruit driven than many other 2012 Pinot Noirs. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. It is quite sappy in style with crisp black fruit rather than red, leading to a focused, slightly austere, tobacco-tinged and saline finish. I would afford this a year in bottle for this "classic" style of Oregon Pinot."Wine Advocate 89 points

It's been a few years, but Wine Spectator's review of the 2012 edition holds true for the current release as well!

"This Champagne offers an array of flavor, including toasted brioche, Gala apple, lemon zest, graphite and ginger, with a touch of honey. Elegant, but with good intensity and a moderate, nut-tinged finish." [For the 2012 release]Wine Spectator 92 points

The second wine from Ch Guiraud, this plays on the contrast between botrytis-tinged sweetness and clean Sauvignon Blanc fruit and acids.

Jean Vesselle Brut Reserve Bouzy N/V 375ml Product #30399 (In Stock)
Jean Vesselle Brut Reserve Bouzy N/V 375ml Jean Vesselle Brut Reserve Bouzy N/V 375ml

After 300 years of growing and making Champagne in Bouzy, the Vesselle family has mastered the art of making rich, toasty, wines with creamy textures and pure, fresh, finishes. This 100% Grand Cru Pinot Noir (80%) and Chardonnay (20%) aged 30 months on the lees following secondary fermentation.

A smoky, toasty, nose shows hints of strawberry, pear and spice.  Then fresh and very pure in the mouth with red berry fruit, pear, spice and plenty of toast, biscuit and brioche. Perfect balance on the palate through the long, creamy, finish that lingers on and on. This is delicious to just drink but will work beautifully at table, too.

"Powerful, vinous and beautifully resonant, Vesselle's NV Brut Réserve hits all the right notes. The richness and radiance that make Bouzy Champagnes so compelling comes through in spades. Rich red stone fruit, spice, leather and lightly honeyed notes all form a super-attractive fabric of aromas and flavors in this deep, intensely satisfying NV Champagne. What a gorgeous wine this is."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

A great vintage for this classic Napa Cab.  As the winery says, "Fruit comes from both our sustainably farmed vineyard in Rutherford and from local Napa Valley vineyards. A big Cabernet with balance and finesse, with character of black fruit, baking spices, black cherry, lavender, toasted coriander, and anise, layered with toasty oak.  The finish is long, with just the right amount of tannin."

Stellar wine that's already delicious.

"Potent cherry, redcurrant and floral scents are given a musky, earthy touch by a hint of rhubarb. Sappy, sweet and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry preserve flavors and a touch of licorice. The clinging finish is shaped by silky, even tannins and given bite by a hint of cracked pepper."  Vinous 92 points

"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape appears to be a beautiful wine, although perhaps not at the level of the 2007 or 2010 (which will not be released for another two years). The elegant, medium to full-bodied 2009 displays lots of cedary, berry fruit intermixed with notes of garrigue, Christmas fruitcake, kirsch and spice. It is best consumed in its first decade of life."Wine Advocate 90-92 points

Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml) Product #28360 (In Stock)
Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml) Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml)

A classic Tokaji; medium-sweet.

The 2007 Tokaji Aszu 5-Puttonyos is a blend of 75% Furmint, 15% Zeta and 10% Harslevelu (the first and last forming the base wine.) The berries were added to both the fermenting must but mostly finished wine, depending on the level of botrytis, then aged in barrel for 30 months. It has a very pure and clean nose, perhaps one of the most Sauternes-like I have come across, with yellow plum and quince aromas. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with effervescent Satsuma, apricot and quince notes pricked with just the right amount of acidity (7.2 grams per liter, in case you were wondering.) This very feminine, balletic Tokaji – a little ingenue – is a perfect introduction to the delights of aszu wine. Drink now-2035+. Wine Advocate 91 points

"Spicy aromas lead to candied citrus and clove flavors in this elegant dessert white. Moderately sweet, with bright acidity and fine length. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 91 points

Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Product #24683 (In Stock)
Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml

Usually my personal favorite of the line-up (although 2007 Fonseca is pretty impressive!), the 2009 Taylor Fladgate delivers the Bordeaux-like elegance and class it's known for. On the nose black fruit with notes of raspberry and plum and hints of graphite and cedar. The flavors stay black with currant and cherry appearing plus dark licorice root, apple skin, and more graphite. The deep flavors stay over top of the firm, grippy, mouth-coating tannins that keep everything focused and almost elegant (if such a big wine can be elegant). Love it.

"Going back and forth, the Taylor's 2009 has a lighter nose than the 2007 with precise dark cherry, Seville orange, fresh fig and a hint of scorched soil. The palate is full-bodied packed with ripe black cherries, fresh fig and white pepper; very harmonious and focused although I feel that the 2007 has a little more depth and persistency. Very pretty and very pure, this Taylor's may well put on weight with a couple of years in bottle and merit a higher mark."Wine Advocate 95 points

Fonseca Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Product #24682 (In Stock)
Fonseca Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Fonseca Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml

If Croft is the Aussie Shiraz of the line, then Fonseca is the Napa Cabernet. The story here is all about power - powerful aromatics, powerful palate, powerful tannins. Big aromas feature dark black currant and plum accented by notes of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee with citrus and menthol overtones. In the mouth, firm and packed with muscular black fruit, dark chocolate, and licorice root flavors. As the velvet cloaked tannins well up on the finish, a beautiful floral note emerges as well. This probably isn't as fine as the 2007, but it's outstanding nonetheless!

"The Fonseca 2009 has a very ripe sweet prune and fig-tinged bouquet that is very precocious. Touches of smoke, raisin and dark plum begin to emerge with time, though it needs to evolve a little more cohesion. The palate is full-bodied with saturated tannins, luscious dark berried fruit, touches of pomegranate, fig and dates that lead to a gently grippy, persistent finish."Wine Advocate 93 points
