Dom Weinbach Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg SGN 2009 375ml Dom Weinbach Riesling Grand Cru Schlossberg SGN 2009 375ml

Luxurious, intense, and nearly immortal.

"Bright, pale yellow-gold. Orange flower, strawberry and glazed kumquat on the enticing nose. Pure, palate-staining flavors of cinnamon apple, pear and tea leaf carry through to a very long, smooth aftertaste. The sugar/acid balance (136 g/l residual sugar and 7.25 g/l total acidity) is truly compelling. Great wine."International Wine Cellar 94 points

Ch Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2010 Product #26469 (In Stock)
Ch Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2010 Ch Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2010

Complex and very, very, long.

"The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc (80% Roussanne and 20% Grenache Blanc vinified in tank) exhibits very good acidity along with a lighter, more delicate style than previous vintages (malolactic is now totally blocked), and restrained orange peel, tangerine oil, white peach, honeysuckle and candle wax notes. This medium to full-bodied, zesty, fresh wine is still backward and unevolved, so cellar it for 1-2 years and drink it over the following 10+."Wine Advocate 90 points

"Juicy up front, with lively star fruit, peach and yellow apple fruit, this turns plush and languid, with alluring grilled hazelnut, sweetened butter and warm piecrust notes filling in on the finish. Sneakily long, thanks to the nicely integrated acidity. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Picardan, Clairette and Bourboulenc. Drink now through 2015."Wine Spectator 93 points

Valdicava Brunello Di Montalcino 2009 Product #28252 (In Stock)
Valdicava Brunello Di Montalcino 2009 Valdicava Brunello Di Montalcino 2009

Like 2011, the 2009 harvest was quite warm, yielding softer wines than in 2004 or 2006.  While this 2009s won’t go the 20+ years in cellar that Valdicava usually will, it compensates by being much more open and accessible today.  It’s a rich, deeply flavored, wine that shows the dark fruit, fresh floral, and dark chocolate flavors Valdicava is known for, but in a more silky, elegant, package than usual.  Marvelous wine.

“A silky, fine 2009 Brunello with light berry, chocolate and prune character. Medium to full body. Ultra-fine tannins. A wonderfully crafted Valdicava along the same lines as the excellent 2004. Drink or hold.”  James Suckling 94 points

“Vincenzo Abbruzzese’s 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a dense and full-bodied rendition that delivers an enormously floral bouquet of crushed rose petal and dried potpourri with background tones of cinnamon stick, root beer and caramelized brown sugar. Past vintages of this wine have shown great power and structure in the mouth, but the 2009 vintage is veiled and nuanced instead. There’s a silky and tight quality to the tannin backed by a long, polished feel. The wine never feels bulky or dense. It will be interesting to see how it evolves, but if you don’t want to wait, it can also be consumed in the near-term. Drink: 2016-2024.”Wine Advocate 92+ points

Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2010 Product #28944 (In Stock)
Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2010 Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2010

Shirley Roy never meant to make two wines from her 20 or so acre estate in a crook of Napa’s Soda Canyon.  But, winemaker Philippe Melka felt the vineyard spoke with two voices – one aristocratic and intense, the other softer, more plush and mellow.  Prop Red is the second of those voices, a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon with 26% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.  After dropping half her crop in 2010, Shirley was rewarded with this ripe and welcoming red that’s already delicious and sure to improve for years.  A bit of a cross between the black-fruited 2008 and the finer, more detailed, 2009.

“Roy’s 2010 Proprietary Red has a little more delineation and nuance than the 2009. Freshly cut flowers, violets, super ripe dark fruit, mocha, espresso, chocolate, plums, cassis and black currants all jump from the glass in this opulent full-bodied huge wine. Layers of fruit continue to build to the creamy, expressive finish.  Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.”  Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate 92 points

“Bright medium ruby. Aromas of blueberry, coffee, mocha, truffle and chocolate show a slightly porty quality. Fat, smooth and lush in the mouth, offering immediate accessibility. The truffley element carries through on the palate. This nicely rich, layered blend finishes with dusty tannins and good length.”International Wine Cellar 90 points

Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2008 Product #26382 (In Stock)
Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2008 Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2008

"Sandrone’s 2008 Barolo Le Vigne is a wine of breathtaking textural finesse and elegance. Nothing really stands out, so phenomenal is the wine’s balance and sense of harmony. This is the kind of wine that is easy to overlook because it doesn’t ask for attention and isn’t showy. Instead, everything is simply in the right place. The finest, most silky of tannins support a core of sweet red berries, flowers, mint and spices, all of which are woven together with total refinement. The eternal, nuanced finish bodes very well for the future. This is a dazzling effort from Luciano and Luca Sandrone."Wine Advocate 97 points

Maillard Corton Renardes Grand Cru 2008 Product #26601 (In Stock)
Maillard Corton Renardes Grand Cru 2008 Maillard Corton Renardes Grand Cru 2008

With all the fuss over the super-ripe 2009s, it's easy to miss out on the classic structure, balance, and charm of bottles like this fine Grand Cru 2008.  This year's model shows off plenty of the animal, earthy, aspect of Corton Renardes but still has a nice core of pretty Pinot fruit.  It's unusually elegant for Corton Renardes, but still packs a punch of powerful flavors and has the perfect balance of fruit, tannin and acid to develop well in cellar for a decade or more.  Or, drink it now with earthy foods and mushrooms!

Grahams Vintage 2011 Port Product #27202 (In Stock)
Grahams Vintage 2011 Port Grahams Vintage 2011 Port

A classic and classy Port with good structure and plenty of length. A bit more sophisticated than Dow if not quite as powerful.

"The 2011 Graham’s comes from the five quintas that have been the source for many years (Malvedos, Tua, Vila Velha, das Lages and Vale de Malhadas). It represents a selection of the 131 pipes from a total production of 1,454 and is a blend of 40% Touriga Nacional, 31% Touriga Franca, 6% Sousao and 23% mixture of very old vines. It has a more “serious” bouquet compared to the Dow, with beguiling scents of blackberry, wild hedgerow, tobacco and cloves. Straight-laced, very well-defined and compelling, the palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and supremely well-judged acidity. It is utterly harmonious, with a pure core of ripe black cherries, damson, marmalade, clove and spices, and the finish lingers long in the mouth."Wine Advocate 95-97 points

"Offers a decadently fruity aroma, with peppery accents to the cherry, raspberry and dark currant flavors that are lithe and juicy. Grippy tannins grace the mocha- and chocolate-infused finish. Best from 2025 through 2055."Wine Spectator 96 points

A bold, rich, wine with fine length.

"Light, bright orange. Intense, spice-accented aromas of candied orange, redcurrant and fresh flowers, with sneaky mineral and leesy notes. Supple and expansive, offering vibrant citrus fruit and red berry flavors with complicating notes of cinnamon and pear skin. Finishes silky and long, with resonating spiciness and excellent clarity."International Wine Cellar 93 points

"A vinous version, structured by fine acidity, with a creamy bead to the texture and a base note of minerality. Offers a full range of ripe black cherry and black currant, piecrust, pomegranate and smoke flavors. Drink now through 2027."Wine Spectator 93 points

Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Spring Mtn Rsv 2010 Product #28772 (In Stock)
Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Spring Mtn Rsv 2010 Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Spring Mtn Rsv 2010

A big young wine that will be better in 5 years (but tempts right now).

"Micheal Keenan has done an incredible job at this Spring Mountain winery over the last 10-15 years, producing one of the finest Cabernet Francs in all of northern California as well as hitting all cylinders with his other Bordeaux varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as well as his sumptuous blend called Mernet. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (100% estate Cabernet Sauvignon) screams black currants and blueberries in a full-bodied, fresh, vibrant, high energy style. The color is a deep purple, and the wine possesses brilliant focus, impressive purity and a freshness that belies its power (14.9% alcohol) and concentration. A beauty of elegance and authority, it should drink well for 15-20 years."Wine Advocate 96 points

Dow's Vintage Port 1994 Product #29018 (In Stock)
Dow's Vintage Port 1994 Dow's Vintage Port 1994

10 years from the vintage, this is starting to unfurl. A baby, but a cute one.

"The massive 1994 is unquestionably the finest Dow I have tasted since the 1977. This opaque purple-colored wine is not as developed or flamboyant as Fonseca, but it is super-concentrated and multi-layered, with huge masses of fruit and some tannin in the finish. This is a slightly drier style than Fonseca or Graham's, but it appears to be a classic, majestic, enormously constituted 1994 that should age effortlessly for three decades or more. It is one of the stars of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2030."Wine Advocate 96 points

"A blackstrap, powerful Port. Black, with intense aromas of raspberries, raisins, flowers and stems. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a long, rich finish. Tannins pull at your palate. A wine for the future.--Dow vertical. Best after 2008."Wine Spectator 97 points

Dom De La Janasse Chateauneuf Du Pape VV 2011 Dom De La Janasse Chateauneuf Du Pape VV 2011

Very limited.

"Concentrated cherry and blueberry aromas, with accents of potpourri and pungent Moroccan spices. Deep dark fruit flavors possess superb energy and vivacity, with fresh acidity adding bite and lift. The clinging finish shows uncommon intensity, with mounting sweetness and sneaky, harmonious tannins. Here's a wine that transcends the vintage."International Wine Cellar 92-94 points

"This cuvee comes from four parcels of the estate’s oldest vines, and tends to be 80% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 5% Syrah. The Grenache is always aged in foudre and the other cepages aged in small oak. The three terroirs include Les Soumades (primarily red clay soils), La Crau, old vines near Chateau Beaucastel, and the terroir after which this estate is named, Janasse, which is primarily clay and limestone covered by the thick carpet of stones known as the galets roules. Achieving 16.5% natural alcohol in 2011 was no easy task, but this wine is not the least bit hot. Full-bodied, intense and opulent, it may be the wine of the vintage, not only in Chateauneuf du Pape, but in all of southern France. This amazing effort transcends the vintage. It is a tribute to the extraordinary viticultural and winemaking perfection/obsession of Christophe and Isabelle Sabon and their father. This black/purple-hued 2011 exhibits lots of cassis, floral, black raspberry and kirsch characteristics as well as potential longevity of 10-15 years or long."Wine Advocate 93-95 points

Dom Jerome Chezeaux Vosne Romanee 1er Les Suchots 2011 Product #28804 (In Stock)
Dom Jerome Chezeaux Vosne Romanee 1er Les Suchots 2011 Dom Jerome Chezeaux Vosne Romanee 1er Les Suchots 2011

“Perhaps the greatest wine to issue from this estate, the Suchots sits on deep and heavy clay at 270 meters altitude with an east-southeast exposure.  Chezeaux owns a bit more than one-third of a hectare in this elite lieu-dit which sits opposite Richebourg and Romanée Saint Vivant.”  Importer Neal Rosenthal

“The 2011 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots comes across as a bit understated in this vintage. The customary textural finesse is present, but there is a bit less density in the fruit. Dark red stone fruits, spices, menthol and wild flowers are layered into the impeccable, generous finish.  Drink 2016-2031.”  Antonio Galloni 93 points

Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Product #27382 (In Stock)
Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Philippe Melka makes this wine from selected barrels of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (95%) and a little Petit Verdot (5%).  For this wine, he chooses barrels that emphasize Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure and minerality vs. the lusher, more plush, Proprietary red.  The wine ages 18 months (vs. 14 for the Prop Red) in 100% new French oak. “Aristocratic” was my first note on tasting this in March, 2012, and words like “pure”, “elegant”, “powerful”, and, most of all, “long!” all cropped up as well.  Where the 2008 Proprietary Red is luscious, this is more reserved and complex with finer structure and much deeper minerality and snap.  Just lovely stuff.

“Close in quality but perhaps not quite as exuberant and profound is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot). It boasts an opaque purple color as well as abundant notes of charcoal, scorched earth, underbrush, licorice, black currants and blackberries. Slightly more evolved than the 2007, it is nearly that wine’s equal in terms of depth, richness and overall appeal. This strong effort should drink well for two decades or more.”Wine Advocate 93 points

The wood has not yet completely integrated, particularly on the finish, yet there is so much underlying material that it should not be an issue."Allen Meadows 90-93 points

A classic; rich and powerful.  Best from 2017-2027.

“Slightly reduced aromas of roasted black raspberry, licorice and violet. A sweet, fine-grained fruit bomb in the mouth, offering more definition and verve than the Boudots to its blackberry and cassis flavors. Creamy-sweet but with nicely integrated acidity and ripe, fine-grained tannins giving the wine shape and energy. This wine was made entirely from vines planted in 1981 as the Meuniers pulled up the oldest vines for replanting before the 2012 season.” International Wine Cellar 91-93 points

“The 2012 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Chaboeufs has a very well defined, slightly metallic bouquet that is vigorous and focused. The palate is very silky and more refined than the Les Boudots. Despite some reduction this seems to have more class and finesse, serving as a decent Nuits Saint Georges without the bells and whistles.” Wine Advocate 92-94 points

“The superb Les Chaboeufs 1er Cru exhibits a dark red fruit nose with hints of herbs and loam. It boasts outstanding floral and dark berry fruit flavor and has an elegant mouth feel with, soft round tannins and a long finish. Drink in 2017 for an additional 10 years minimum.”i-Wine Review 93 points

An impressive wine, even more so in big bottle! This 100% Chardonnay from grower-producer Guy Larmandier opens with the aroma of a fresh, juicy pear. It's crisp on the palate, with flavors of pear, a touch of lemon curd, and chalky minerality.

Bodegas Asenjo & Manso A & M 2006 Product #25792 (In Stock)
Bodegas Asenjo & Manso A & M 2006 Bodegas Asenjo & Manso A & M 2006

A rare “luxury cuvee” that is all about the amazing fruit and not about oaky flash, this is one of the most delicious Tempranillo-based wines I have tasted in  years.  The fruit is from the heart of the vineyard, all from vines planted by Teofilo Asenjo 80 to 100 years ago.  And, while good, the Wine Advocate review undersells the wine by a lot.  Intense, complex, aromas of dark fruit, sweet herb, and cardamom spice get deeper and more layered with air.  In the mouth intensely focused fruit and roasted meat flavors with accents of licorice and balsamic.  Firm, fine, and very long with precise tannin and mouthwatering acidity.  Drink it now with roast lamb or standing rib roast or cellar for even more complexity.  Amazing stuff.

"The flagship 2006 A & M was sourced from 100 year old vines, was fermented with native yeasts, and went through ML in barrel before spending 15 months in French oak. Deep purple in color, it offers up a liqueur-like nose of blackberry, black cherry, sandalwood, mineral, espresso, and lavender. Full-bodied on the palate with outstanding volume and density, this layered, concentrated effort borders on opulence. It has structured to go the distance and should see its 30th birthday in peak shape. Drink 2010-2035.”Wine Advocate 93+ points

Girardin Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2011 Girardin Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2011

Wow.  Just wow.  A magnificent Grand Cru Corton-Charlemagne that impresses now with food but really should sit for 5-6  years.

"An attractively fresh and quite restrained nose offers up an attractively layered and elegant aromas of mineral reduction, Granny Smith apples and white floral aromas. There is outstanding intensity to the detailed, precise and energetic big-bodied flavors that culminate in an explosive and impressively persistent finish. This is one serious and very powerful wine with knockout intensity."Allen Meadows 92-94 points

"Highly nuanced nose offers lime, gunflint, chicken broth, nutmeg, toasted bread and fresh leafy herbs. Thick and glyceral on entry, then large-scaled and full in the middle for Corton-Charlemagne, but with its richness and sweetness leavened by a strong sappy quality. Not an austere style but the wine's biting, rising finish suggests that it will require at least five or six years of cellaring."International Wine Cellar 92-95 points
