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.

Jules Desjourneys L'interdit (Fleurie 2008) Product #28515 (In Stock)
Jules Desjourneys L'interdit (Fleurie 2008) Jules Desjourneys L'interdit (Fleurie 2008)

Denied the AOC for a touch too much VA, this wine sizzles and sparks as the tangy flavors run across your palate.

“The wine that will be known as 2008 Desjourneys is none other than Duperray’s 2008 Fleurie – combining Chapelle des Bois and Les Moriers – that was refused appellation and so is officially, merely, “vin de France.” Believe me, this is “vin de France” in the same sense that Debussy signed many of his late masterpieces “musicien francais.” The high-toned floral, herbal, and fruit distillate esters that memorably marked the Chapelle des Bois from cask as well as the black tea-tinged and more bittersweetly herbal and concentrated dark berries of the original Les Moriers, have been preserved in this marriage. This finishes with mouthwatering salinity and a tenacious, almost Gewurztraminer-like meld of brown spices concentrated floral and herbal essences. I would anticipate it being worth following for half a dozen years, but on no account should it be missed earlier-on.” Wine Advocate 93 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
