Quinta Do Noval Late Bottled Vintage 2008 Product #28828 (In Stock)
Quinta Do Noval Late Bottled Vintage 2008 Quinta Do Noval Late Bottled Vintage 2008

While many Port houses struggled in the cool 2008 vintage, Quinta do Noval released both an outstanding vintage and fantastic value LBV. It's an elegant, vibrant, port (as you'd expect from the year) with vibrant raspberry, blackberry, chocolate and violet aromas and flavors.  Still nicely firm and well shaped tannins lend support to this delicious, drink me now, Port.

Mater Domini Marangi Salice Salentino Reserva 2008 Product #29235 (In Stock)
Mater Domini Marangi Salice Salentino Reserva 2008 Mater Domini Marangi Salice Salentino Reserva 2008

Tre Bicchieri - the highest award from Italy's Gambero Rosso!  This intense beauty is mainly Negromaro with 5% Malvasia, and opens with a wild mixture of caramelized nuts, melted tar, and earthy black fruit aromas.  The flavors are complex and equally intense with notes of date, black cherry, licorice, and caramel weaving in and out.  The finish is firm and not at all rustic.  This powerhouse will be great with rich winter stews or earthy lamb or game dishes.

Montaribaldi Barbaresco Palazzina 2008 Product #28806 (In Stock)
Montaribaldi Barbaresco Palazzina 2008 Montaribaldi Barbaresco Palazzina 2008

A traditional wine in overall shape but with a touch more fruit and "oompf" in the middle than often found in Barbaresco.  Luxurious and rich with masses of lovely tannins.  Decant for a few hours now or cellar for 5-8 years.

"Here’s a finely crafted and rich expression of Barbaresco with evident oak tones that are enhanced by mature berry fruit, cola and creamy vanilla. The wine shows very nice saturation, richness and persistency. It also has a sour note of astringency on the close at this young stage in its life."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Clarendon Hills Cabernet Sauvignon Sandown 2008 Product #29331 (In Stock)
Clarendon Hills Cabernet Sauvignon  Sandown 2008 Clarendon Hills Cabernet Sauvignon  Sandown 2008

Limited.  Wines arrive February 20.  Lovely Aussie Cabernet that's drinking perfectly now.

“The 2008 Sandown Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon gives a deep garnet-purple color and pronounced notes of black currant cordial, chocolate, marmite, loam, black truffle, soy and black olive plus a whiff of lavender. Full-bodied with a high level of fine grained tannins and high acidity, the fruit and earth components are well intertwined on the palate, finishing long.”Wine Advocate 92 points

“Plush and expressive, brimming with lively currant and spice flavors, hinting at black olive, bay leaf and cocoa as the finish lingers expressively. Shows impressive power and intensity. Drink now through 2020. Wine Spectator 92 points

Fowles Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz 2009 Product #28052 (In Stock)
Fowles Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz 2009 Fowles Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz 2009

It's been a while since we got this excited by Shiraz.  From Australia's coolest growing region, this delivers plenty of New World fruit in a sophisticated, food-friendly, frame.  Really, really, good.

"The 2008 Ladies who Shoot their Lunch Shiraz gives a very deep garnet garnet-purple color with pronounced aromas of blackberry, blueberry and licorice plus subtle notes of mocha, cinnamon and cardamom. Rich and full, this Shiraz is nicely balanced by crisp acid and a medium level of grainy tannins. Drink it now to 2018+."Wine Advocate 91 points

"This cool-climate Shiraz opens with a range of ripe dark berry and cherry flavors, shaded with smoky, minerally overtones that balance against pinpoint acidity and mingle nicely through the generous, focused finish."Wine Spectator 91 points
