Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2013 375ml Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2013 375ml

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

Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2013 375ml Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio Alto Adige 2013 375ml

A whole lot of Pinot Grigio (in a nice half-bottle package) for the  money here from one of Alto Adige's most respected estates. Lightly aromatic and fully flavored with pure apple and peach fruit in the middle and a touch of powdered spice on the finish.  The texture is unusually creamy and sophisticated and bright peach and lime notes come out with air and linger nicely.

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!

Spy Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015 375ml Spy Valley Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2015 375ml

A bit of barrel fermented wine gives this extra richness of texture to go with the classic, fresh, SB fruit.

"Bright light yellow. Ripe aromas of mirabelle and ginger, plus hints of tropical fruits. Spicy, broad and rather dry on the palate, offering melon and tropical fruit hints. This nicely concentrated wine is kept fresh by unabsorbed CO2 and good spicy lift."  Vinous (Tanzer) 89 points

Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014 375ml Product #31588 (In Stock)

Steve MacRostie creates this classy Chardonnay from grapes grown in some of the most exciting regions of California's Sonoma Coast.  Sangiacomo and Hi Vista vineyards in Carneros give richness and texture.  Several Russian River Valley sites - including sites owned by the Dutton and Martinelli familes - give lift, purity and vibrancy.  And MacRostie's own Wildcat Mountain Vyd just west of Carneros adds fantastic complexity and length.

All of the fruit is pressed whole cluster (without destemming) to maintain clarity and freshness.  About 90% ferments and ages in (20% new) French oak for more richness and body while 20% stays in stainless steel to retain crispness and cut.

"Features a delicious core of vibrant grapefruit and lemon-laced tangerine and white peach notes, with zesty acidity that keeps the flavors fresh and jumping."Wine Spectator 90 points

La Guita En Rama Manzanilla NV 375ml Product #31266 (In Stock)
La Guita En Rama Manzanilla NV 375ml La Guita En Rama Manzanilla NV 375ml

"En Rama" means "raw" and for Sherry that means unfiltered. Manzanilla Sherry is always lighter and more sea shell-like than Fino and bone dry.

"The one thing I thought I'd never see was a bottle of NV Manzanilla La Guita en Rama, an 'en rama' bottling from October 2015. The wine is exclusively from Sanlúcar, mainly from the Pago de Miraflores vineyard. If the regular bottling has seen a prodigious improvement since it was purchased from the Estévez family, the unfiltered version is simply phenomenal. I encountered a first bottle in the north of Spain and I was gobsmacked. The character of brine, green olives and mustard seeds is all there in an amplified way. The palate is medium bodied, as 'flor' eats glycerin and the wine is always sharper, always very dry and intense. This is a selection of 'botas' from centenary 'soleras' in their bodegas Misericordia and Carretera de Jerez, averaging 4.5 years of age."Wine Advocate 93 points

Elk Cove Pinot Noir Willamette 2014 375ml Product #31676 (In Stock)
Elk Cove Pinot Noir  Willamette 2014 375ml Elk Cove Pinot Noir  Willamette 2014 375ml

Another classic release for this pioneer of Oregon's Chehalem mountains. A bit richer and broader than in some releases - 2013 was warm before the late rains - with a pretty note of smoky oak.

"Fresh and expressive, light-footed and generous, with cherry, plum and apricot flavors, coming together smoothly on the open-textured finish."Wine Spectator 90 points

Charles De Cazanove Champagne Brut Tradition NV 375ml Charles De Cazanove Champagne Brut Tradition NV 375ml

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

Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2013 (375ml) Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2013 (375ml)

The second wine from Ch Guiraud, this plays on the contrast between botrytis-tinged sweetness and clean Sauvignon Blanc fruit and acids. Rock solid Sauternes aromas and flavors of apricot, toasted almond, white peach, and honey, a creamy texture, and refreshing ginger and lemon notes on the finish.  For lighter desserts or even with savory caper/lemon sauce!

Steindorfer Seewinkel Beerenauslese 2013 Product #30825 (In Stock)
Steindorfer Seewinkel Beerenauslese 2013 Steindorfer Seewinkel Beerenauslese 2013

The lowlands near Austria's glacial lake Neusiedlersee create the perfect conditions for great sweet wines - sunny days and foggy mornings that allow Botrytis - aka Noble Rot - to develop and concentrate grape sugars.  Here, Ernst Steindorfer uses shriveled berries of Scheurebe, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc to create a dense, layered, wine redolent of spiced honey, peach, pear, and apricot jam.  Round and deeply sweet on the palate, the brilliant acids come up on the finish to pull you back for another sip.

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

Guigal Chateauneuf-du-pape 2009 375ml Guigal Chateauneuf-du-pape 2009 375ml

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

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml Product #31238 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml

One bitterly cold morning in January 2014, Anton Bauer and his team got up before dawn and harvested the last Grüner Veltliner berries of the 2013 growing season.  The frozen berries were rushed to the winery and immediately pressed, releasing tiny amounts of super-sugar-laden juicy and leaving the still solid water behind.  The thick, viscous, juice went into tank where it slowly fermented until the yeast could do no more, bringing the wine to 12.5% alcohol and leaving a stunning amount of rich sweetness and bracing acidity behind.

Despite the 2014 harvest date, this is technically a 2013 vintage wine.  But whatever you call it, the wine is brilliant.  Rich and creamy with layers of apricot, peach and white fruit aromas and flavors, there's a touch of honey and caramel for depth and bracing, tangy, acidity for freshness.  Sits on your palate for minutes after each sip, this is a rare treat you won't want to miss.
