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!

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

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

Dom Des Malandes Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2011 Half Bottle Product #28285 (In Stock)
Dom Des Malandes Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2011 Half Bottle Dom Des Malandes Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2011 Half Bottle

HALF BOTTLE.  From 40+ year-old vines in the heart of Fourchaume, proper, harvested the first 3 days of September, just before the rain that caused so many problems with rot for others.  The fruit came in just under 12.5% alcohol with vibrant acidity that benefited from 12 months in neutral oak.  As estate manager Lyne Marchive says of her 2011s overall, “It's classic in style but not unduly austere plus it should drink well early if someone prefers it."  Don’t miss the chance to get some in half-bottles and magnum, too!

"A very slight chew to give texture, plus plenty of bright green apple fruit. Great intensity on the mid-palate – certainly has ageing potential."  Jancis Robinson Purple Pages 17/20 points

"Sweet Spot Outstanding. A dense nose of ripe white orchard fruit, floral notes and a hint of tidal pool character precedes the very rich and suave flavors that possess good power and excellent depth and length. This is a relatively big yet refined Fourchaume that displays plenty of mid-palate dry extract."Allen Meadows 90-93 points

Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2011 Product #29096 (In Stock)
Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2011 Petit Guiraud Sauternes 2011

The second wine from Ch Guiraud, this plays on the contrast between botrytis-tinged sweetness and clean Sauvignon Blanc fruit and acids.  For lighter desserts or even with savory caper/lemon sauce!

"Solid, with a direct, open-knit core of apricot, toasted almond, piecrust and white peach flavors that meld through the creamy, ginger-tinged finish."Wine Spectator 90 points

Michael Honig, his family, and long-time winemaker Kristin Belair turn out some of the best, most consistent, Napa Valley Cabernet year after year.  The care taken in sustainable farming and hands-on winemaking shows in this rich, spicy, Cabernet with plenty of dark berry, spice and cedar notes.  Accents of anise, licorice and dark chocolate add even more complexity.  A fine wine and fine value.

Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 375ml Product #29222 (In Stock)
Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 375ml Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello Di Montalcino 2010 375ml

This old Montalcino estate, founded by Francesco Ciacci in 1877, has been a Brunello standard-bearer for decades now.  Giuseppe Bianchini (the estate manager who inherited the property when the last Ciacci died in 1985) and his children Paolo and Lucia are famed for producing elegant, aromatic, wines that still pack plenty of Brunello power and punch.  The family introduced this wine, made from the estate's younger vines, in 2003 and it's grown into one of the most highly-rated, best value, wines of the region.  It always drinks well very young (although an hour of air won't hurt), and is best enjoyed in the first 15 years from the vintage.

“Very perfumed with flower, truffle, light wet earth and cherry character. Full body and full integrated ripe tannins and caresses your palate. Very fine and pretty. Slight soya undertone. Succulent and enticing. You want to drink this. Better in 2016.”  James Suckling 94 points

"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino represents a return to the traditional values of Montalcino. The bouquet is buoyant and bright with lingering tones of smoke, ash, balsam herb, licorice and soy sauce. Those kinds of aromas make Brunello such a wonderful wine and thankfully you get them in abundance here. Dry mineral and brimstone also give the wine a sense of focus, sharpness and cleanliness that is very appealing. The close is long, fine and polished. I look forward to retasting this bottle five years from now."Wine Advocate 94+ points
