Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012 Product #31476 (In Stock)
Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012 Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012

The new vintage of our best-selling Malbec ever is another winner!.  Everything about this wine is “super-premium” – the high-end oak, hand harvesting, low yields, even the packaging - except the price!  Made to sell for $60 in the US, a change in distribution created this amazing opportunity to enjoy top-shelf luxury at a very nice, everyday, price.

"I was very impressed with this set of wines produced by a company that owns no vineyards, but sources grapes from selected locations in Mendoza. The 2012 Malbec Grand Reserve sourced from Lujan de Cuyo, aged for one year in French oak barrels, has aromas of incense, spices and black and red cherries. The medium-bodied palate shows a profusion of fine-grained tannins that coat your mouth. It has a classical, serious profile, with restraint and poise. Drink 2015-2019."Wine Advocate 90 points

Giulia Negri Barolo La Tartufaia 2010 Product #29760 (In Stock)
Giulia Negri Barolo La Tartufaia 2010 Giulia Negri Barolo La Tartufaia 2010

What happens with a top Burgundy winemaker (Jean-Michel Guillon) encourages friends and importers of wines from France (Olivier Daubresse) and Spain (Jonas Gustafsson) to import a Barolo from Italy?  When the Barolo is the stunning 2010 La Tartufaia from young Giulia Negri – aka “BaroloGirl”, something pretty magical results!

Giulia is a child of Barolo (her family owns the well-respected Serrandenari estate), and has  struck out on her own to make Chardonnay, Pinot Noir (which is how she met Jean-Michel), and a classically styled, very pure, Nebbiolo from Barolo’s great 2010 vintage.  Very pure, lifted, scents of red and black berries waft from the glass with accents of tobacco, plum, dried rose petal, and tar.  It’s nicely relaxed and pure – especially at this young age – on the palate, with juicy red/black fruits, dark chocolate, licorice, tobacco, and hints of smoky oak.  With air, a little truffle and potpourri emerge and the fruit flavors get deeper and more prominent as the wine sails on to a generous finish over sweet, ripe, tannins.  Round and rich, this tempts right now with big tannins that melt away nicely but will become more exciting and explosive from 2017 – 2025.

Quinta Dona Matilde Port Vintage 2011 Product #27907 (In Stock)
Quinta Dona Matilde Port Vintage 2011 Quinta Dona Matilde Port Vintage 2011

The Barros family knows a thing or two about Vintage Port, with family founder Manoel Moreira de Barros starting the top-notch Barros estate in the early 1900s.  Quinta Dona Matilde was already highly respected when Barros acquired it in 1925, although it was equally famous for being one of the most difficult to farm vineyards in the Douro Valley.  Dona Matilde passed out of the family with the sale of the entire Barros group in 2006, but less than a year later Manoel Moreira’s grandson, Manuel Angelo Barros, was able to buy it back and return the Barros family to the Port and fine wine business.

Many of you have loved the family’s 2007 Vintage Port when we’ve offered it in the past, but importer Jonas Gustafsson and Filippe Barros agree with me that the 2011 is a substantial step up in quality and sophistication.  The wine opens with lovely aromas of dried blackcurrant and raisin with a touch of leafy tobacco, wet stone minerality, and vanilla spice.  The aromas carry through on the rich palate where nutty, spicy, undertones emerge and the sense of minerality gets stronger.  As you’d hope for in a young Vintage Port, there’s very nice grip to the firm tannins and plenty of juicy, refreshing, acids to keep everything fresh and focused. The chewy tannins don’t get in the way of the long finish where the minerality and spice notes really shine.  Try this now with walnuts and Stilton cheese or cellar it for as long as you’d like to.

Brovia Barolo Brovia 2010 Product #28991 (In Stock)
Brovia Barolo Brovia 2010 Brovia Barolo Brovia 2010

This always one of our favorite “Normale” – or “Classico” as the Brovias prefer – Barolo, tempting young and developing nicely over 3-5 years from release.  In 2010, it’s a blend of younger vines from the family’s Cru vineyards, with the biggest portion coming from the Brea vineyard in Serralunga.  It was bottled earlier than the Crus, and because of its shocked state, was not shown to critics Antonio Galloni or Steve Tanzer when they visited the estate earlier this year.  It is very fine value.

As importer Neal Rosenthal explains:  “This cuvée is a blend of the younger vines found in the various “crus” and offers a stylish take on the Brovia approach to this appellation. There is never excess here, no attempt to flaunt an image of power. Above all, balance is the key element in faithfully rendering a Barolo of great stature. You will find here the classic grainy tannins, the long, mineral-inflected finish, the aromas of late-summer roses and flavors of dried cherries.

"Brovia's 2010 Barolo opens with exquisite, floral aromatics. Silky and gracious throughout, the 2010 impresses for its overall balance and classiness. Sweet red cherries, mint, anise, cinnamon and orange peel are some of the notes that open up over time. The 2010 is a wine to treasure for its ample perfume and exceptional harmony. Today, the tannins are a bit firm, so another year or two in bottle is a must. Still, there is so much to like here, even at this early stage. The 2010 Barolo is 70% young-vine fruit from Brea (above 20 years of age), plus the wine that is left over when the single-vineyard Barolos go into cask. A recent bottle of the 2004 was stellar. This is one of the great values left in Barolo. " Antonio Galloni 92 points

"This is spicy, with meat, chocolate and dried-fruit character. Medium body, dense fruit and chewy tannins. Needs two years to soften: better in 2016."  James Suckling 91 points

Guillon Marsannay Blanc Les Champs Perdrix 2009 Product #31438 (In Stock)

A rich, luxurious, Chardonnay from the northern reaches of the Cote de Nuits in Marsannay.  In the warm 2009 harvest, Jean-Michel allowed the healthy Chardonnay fruit to ripen fully before hand harvesting and fermenting and aging the wine in 50% new oak.  Aromas of nut oil, lemon, chervil, smoke and stone fruit lead to a deeply textured, viscous, palate of mature Chardonnay nut, lemon curd, orchard fruit, warm stones, and savory herb.  The flavors really cling to your palate through a long, savory, finish.

Fonseca Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Product #24682 (In Stock)
Fonseca Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Fonseca Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml

If Croft is the Aussie Shiraz of the line, then Fonseca is the Napa Cabernet. The story here is all about power - powerful aromatics, powerful palate, powerful tannins. Big aromas feature dark black currant and plum accented by notes of chocolate, vanilla, and coffee with citrus and menthol overtones. In the mouth, firm and packed with muscular black fruit, dark chocolate, and licorice root flavors. As the velvet cloaked tannins well up on the finish, a beautiful floral note emerges as well. This probably isn't as fine as the 2007, but it's outstanding nonetheless!

"The Fonseca 2009 has a very ripe sweet prune and fig-tinged bouquet that is very precocious. Touches of smoke, raisin and dark plum begin to emerge with time, though it needs to evolve a little more cohesion. The palate is full-bodied with saturated tannins, luscious dark berried fruit, touches of pomegranate, fig and dates that lead to a gently grippy, persistent finish."Wine Advocate 93 points

Eric Rodez Ambonnay Cuvee Des Crayeres NV Product #13997 (In Stock)
Eric Rodez  Ambonnay Cuvee Des Crayeres NV Eric Rodez  Ambonnay Cuvee Des Crayeres NV

Over the past few years, Cuvee Crayeres has graduated from a delicious introduction to Eric's wines to a complex, distinctive, very grand wine of its own. It's a 60/40 blend of Grand Cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with about 40% aged in barrel and 60% allowed to go through malolactic fermentation.  About 50% of the blend is from reserve wines going back to the mid-2000s.  With 5+ years on the lees and dosage in the 3-4 g/l range, it’s a classy, elegant, and very pure bottle of bubbly.

This year’s release beautiful to look at with a bright brass color, great transparency and shine, and very, very, tiny and persistent buttles.  The aromas are ultra-pure, featuring fresh bread dough, apricot, peach, pear and spice with hints of fresh hazelnut for complexity.  The flavors are complex, too, with fresh lemon, stone fruit, key lime, and green apple fruit notes with accents of salty (not sweet) caramel, toast and spice.  The texture is very fine and sliky and the finish very, very long, with fresh lemon pulp and salty hazelnut notes lingering on and on.  Enjoy it right now for its citrusy freshness or let it rest for 1-4 years to pick up more ginger, baked pear, and toasty, nutty, complexity.

Carlisle Zinfandel Bedrock Vyd 2014 Product #31611 (In Stock)
Carlisle Zinfandel Bedrock Vyd 2014 Carlisle Zinfandel Bedrock Vyd 2014

There’s just a little bit of American history in the ground at Bedrock. The site was first planted in 1854 by the gentlemen who would come to be known as Generals William “Tecumseh” Sherman and “Fightin’ Joe” Hooker.  After phylloxera it was replanted in 1888 by Senator George Hearst—a mining magnet, an early father of California, and the father of publisher William Randolph Hearst.

Mike Officer farms two plots of this large site.  About 90% is 1888 Zinfandel with the rest "mixed blacks" (Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet and others) plus a dollop of fortifying Mourvedre, also planted in 1888. The Mourvedre gives depth and a structure that will need a little time to fully unwind.  Mike recommends drinking from 2018-2028 and that seems right to us.

“The 2014 Zinfandel Bedrock Vineyard emerges from one of the warmer sites Carlisle works with. All of that intensity comes through in a big, dramatic wine endowed with serious presence, intensity and tannic heft. Black cherries, menthol, tar, licorice and smoke hit the palate in a big wine that shows the virile side of Zinfandel. The Bedrock is not especially polished, subtle or refined, but it sure is distinctive.”  Vinous (Galloni) 92-94 points

"Plump and rich flavors wrap around a big but refined structure, with briary wild berry aromas and zesty notes of smoky anise, cracked pepper and stony mineral that linger toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2028."Wine Spectator 94 points

Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 Product #32071 (In Stock)
Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013

Spencer Hoopes doesn’t seek out a lot of attention or make a lot of wine – only 2,500 cases or so in total.  So even though he’s been farming some of Napa’s finest Cabernet fruit at his White Horse Vineyard in Oakville since 1983 and making top-notch, great value, wines since the mid-1990s, you may not know the name.  Which is a good thing – it’s the reason we’re able to bring you this beauty for so much less than wines of this pedigree and praise normally command these days.  Decant for an hour and drink with grilled beef or lamb, but be sure to save a few to enjoy over the next 10 years.

"Aromas of ink and blueberries. Some stones, too. Full body, dusty-textured tannins and a rich finish. Yet this remains agile and formed."  James Suckling 93 points

"Editors Choice! This full-bodied, velvet-textured wine has an exotic aroma like a pine forest and tastes like a bowl full of blueberries. Ripe, almost jammy flavors coat the tongue, and vibrate with black currant on the finish. Fine-grained tannins give the texture lots of grip, and support the ripe fruit flavors so they stay dry and appetizing sip after sip." Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Melville Pinot Noir M Block 2014 Product #32217 (In Stock)
Melville Pinot Noir M Block 2014 Melville Pinot Noir M Block 2014

For a couple of decades now, Melville has ranked high on any credible list of top California Pinot Noir estates.  And since its introduction about 6 years ago, the Block M Pinot has been one of their very top wines.  It’s a blend of Dijon 114 and 115 clone Pinot planted Burgundy-style in tightly spaced rows to force the vines to fight for water and nutrients and develop layers of flavor.  In the perfectly balanced 2014 vintage, winemaker Greg Brewer elected to keep all but 30% of the fruit as whole clusters, fermented it cool, and then aged it 100% neutral (5-10 years-old) barrels.  There’s wonderful purity and elegance here in a wine that’s perfectly balanced at 14.0% abv.  Delicious now with duck or salmon and improving through 2024.

"The 2014 Pinot Noir Block M is the most structured and tightly wound of these wines. Dark red and purplish stone fruits, cherry pit and white pepper give the 2014 much of its high-toned personality. The 2014 offers lovely density and yet the whole clusters give the wine a sense of weightlessness that is hugely appealing. The 70% whole clusters are mostly felt in the wine's structure, but less in its flavor profile."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points

"Lots of red flowers, from roses to hibiscus, show alongside plump candied red cherries, exotic Asian spice, black tea and hearty chaparral herbs on the nose of this bottling. The palate is heavy with bay leaf, thyme and eucalyptus served atop a strawberry-cherry base. It's earthy and herbal, yet redolent with ripeness."Wine Enthusiast 94 points

Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Product #24683 (In Stock)
Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port 2009 375 Ml

Usually my personal favorite of the line-up (although 2007 Fonseca is pretty impressive!), the 2009 Taylor Fladgate delivers the Bordeaux-like elegance and class it's known for. On the nose black fruit with notes of raspberry and plum and hints of graphite and cedar. The flavors stay black with currant and cherry appearing plus dark licorice root, apple skin, and more graphite. The deep flavors stay over top of the firm, grippy, mouth-coating tannins that keep everything focused and almost elegant (if such a big wine can be elegant). Love it.

"Going back and forth, the Taylor's 2009 has a lighter nose than the 2007 with precise dark cherry, Seville orange, fresh fig and a hint of scorched soil. The palate is full-bodied packed with ripe black cherries, fresh fig and white pepper; very harmonious and focused although I feel that the 2007 has a little more depth and persistency. Very pretty and very pure, this Taylor's may well put on weight with a couple of years in bottle and merit a higher mark."Wine Advocate 95 points

Walter Scott Pinot Noir Freedom Hill 2015 Product #31909 (In Stock)
Walter Scott Pinot Noir Freedom Hill 2015 Walter Scott Pinot Noir Freedom Hill 2015

Ken got to know Freedom Hill vineyard while working with Mark Vlossak at St. Innocent.  So, when he and Erica got access to a small set of rows in 2012, they knew what to do!  In 2015, they harvested ripe - but not overripe! - fruit from blocks of Pommard and Wadenswil clones that gave a perfectly balanced 13.9% alcohol. Fourteen months in 40% new French oak allowed the wine to gain volume, smoothness, and extra complexity.

Based on Wine Advocate’s commentary, this 2015 has much in common with the 93 point 2012.  There’s plenty of Freedom Hill’s dark, smoky, complexity on the nose with a burst of Wadenswil’s plump Bing and black cherry fruit at the core.  The palate is youthfully tight  - as you’d expect, not yet as open as La Combe Verte – but already exciting with savory cherry, cherry pit, and blackberry fruit flowing into a firm, cellar-worthy, finish.  It's certainly powerful, but elegant and finessed, too.  My note from tasting this at the cellar with Erica is spot on:  "That's a winner.  Fantastic.  Really delicious."  Let it rest until next year and drink through 2030.  335 cases made.

Patricia Green Pinot Noir Durant Bishop Block 2015 Product #32037 (In Stock)
Patricia Green Pinot Noir Durant Bishop Block 2015 Patricia Green Pinot Noir Durant Bishop Block 2015

In some ways, this is the partner to the Estate Old Vines Pinot.  Where that showcases old-vine Pommard on Ribbon Ridge's talc-like marine sediments, Durant is all about very old-vine Pommard (42 years) growing on Dundee Hills' red volcanic soils.  As Patty and Jim write, "These now monster vines were planted back in 1973 making them some of the oldest vines in Oregon. This wine knows exactly what it wants to be. This is finesse, subtleness, elegance and discreet balance all backed up by a sneaky and looming firmness that comes on in the back of the wine. Only older vines make wines like this. This is not a wine that needs to make a dramatic entrance because all the work is done on the back end."

With just a touch of whole cluster and little new oak, this is a wildly in tense and complex follow-up to 2014's 93 point (Vinous) edition.  Dark and chewy, it layers black fruit, lavender, melted licorice, rose oil, meat juice and iron aromas and flavors on the nose and palate.  The energy builds through a finish that's long, deep, and mouthwatering, leaving tangy cherry, floral and smoke flavors lingering.  As Vinous said of the 2014, "I really like this wine's marriage of power and vivacity."  318 cases made

Dom La Barroche Chateauneuf Du Pape Signature 2014 Product #32156 (In Stock)
Dom La Barroche Chateauneuf Du Pape Signature 2014 Dom La Barroche Chateauneuf Du Pape Signature 2014

This is what Chateauneuf du Pape is supposed to taste like!  When you tip the glass, a rush of raspberry, black cherry, and that blend of lavender and sappy herbs the French call garrigue pretty much smacks you in the nose.  Then those scents turn into bold, rich, super-deep, flavors that fill up your mouth with full-bodied joy – but somehow never get heavy or hot.  And, at the end, this silky, spicy, wine leaves you with cracked pepper, herb, and sweet fruit and tannins ready to stand up to grilled lamb or a seven years or so in cellar.

"Fermented in concrete and aged in used foudres and demi-muids. Vivid ruby. Deep, smoke-accented dark berry and floral pastille scents are sharpened by a note of peppery spice. Smoky and sweet in the mouth, offering concentrated boysenberry and cherry flavors and a hint of candied violet. Shows very good power and energy and finishes with excellent focus and length; velvety, late-arriving tannins add shape. Quite serious for an entry-level bottling; I'd bet on this making a solid cellar candidate."  Vinous (Raynolds) 91-93 points

"Juicy, with plum paste and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors that race along, bolstered by a bright anise note. Stays juicy through the finish, showing hints of plum skin, fruitcake and lightly singed alder. Best from 2017 through 2025. 1,800 cases made."Wine Spectator 90 points

Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er Les Vergers 2007 Marie Bernard (Marc Morey) Chassagne 1er Les Vergers 2007

Labeled for us under the Marie Bernard name to comply with Virginia's restrictive distribution rules, this is the exact same wine sold under the Marc Morey label in France and the rest of the USA.

“Outstanding. Moderate golden color. A perfumed nose of straw, citrus and white peach leads to intense, delicious and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors culminate in a long, mouth coating and impressively long finish. I quite like this as there is just a touch of backend austerity that confers a "clean" and refreshing character to the finish without falling over into severity. In sum, lovely juice with 3 to 5 years of upside potential, perhaps a bit more.” Allen Meadows 91 points

“The Marc Morey 2007 Chassagne Montrachet Les Vergers smells of honeysuckle, lily, lime, and honeydew melon; comes to the palate lush in texture yet lusciously juicy; and finishes with chalk and stone undertones that offer a perfect foil to the dripping ripeness of melon and liquid flowers. Hints of lime zest and red currant in the finish offer further counterpoint and serve for a bit of invigoration. This is irresistible already, although I imagine one could hold if for a half dozen years.” Wine Advocate 91 points

Goodfellow Pinot Noir Heritage Willamette 2012 Goodfellow Pinot Noir Heritage Willamette 2012

The richly ripe fruit was dry farmed, hand harvested, and crushed and fermented with 50% whole clusters.  The addition of on-stem fruit added a layer of spice to the wine and also a nice dose of structuring tannins to support the ripe fruit flavors and give the wine more aging potential.  Aging in 75% new French oak added more complexity and structure without obscuring the wine’s intense, deep, dark, fruit.  You’ll love this tonight with  an hour or so in decanter and can pair it with dishes rich in mushroom, beef, and herb flavors,  But, as Marcus notes, “Though delicious now, it will be years before the peak arrives.”

"Brilliant red. Vibrant, expansive red and dark berry and rose pastille scents are deepened by notes of cola and vanilla. Smooth and concentrated on the palate, with gently sweet black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors showing surprising vivacity for their heft. Pure, focused and sweet on the impressively long finish, which is framed by velvety tannins that fold smoothly into the wine's plush fruit."  Vinous (Reynolds) 93 points

En Numeros Vermells Garnatxa Carinyena Black Label 2014 En Numeros Vermells Garnatxa Carinyena Black Label 2014

Silvia Puig intends her Black Label cuvee to be rounder, more supple, and easier to appreciate young than the more structured Classic wine.  In 2014, there are 1,340 bottles of this roughtly 60% Garnatxa (both Negre and Peluda, aka “Hairy Grenache”) and 40% Carinyena from old vineyards scattered across Priorat.  She ferments the wine in 300 and 500 liter French oak casks that have had one of the ends removed, and then puts the ends back on to let the wine age for 13 months.

There's always a friendly, chunky, richness to this cuvee and in 2014 that's joined by remarkable poise and precision.  It sings out with bold aromas of dark raspberry, ripe blueberry, and cocoa powder with subtle floral accents.  Mouthfilling and rich on the palate with more dark fruit - plum, raspberry, blackberry - plus deep dark chocolate, crushed flower, and a bare hint of cola nut.  I love how the flavors really fan out to cover your palate from side-to-side and how the deep, weighty, richness is matched by sprightly freshness.  The chalky tannins make this an outstanding choice for grilled or roasted meats tonight and for a decade or more.

Co-winemaker Alexis Guillon's cuvee is always a bit more elegant than the Domaine's other Village wines, but still has the concentration and depth that only comes from 60+ year-old vines. This is the best vintage for this wine I can recall and the best rating from Burghound, too.  Another outstanding value in classic Gevrey Chambertin.  Best from 2019 - 2029.

Outstanding Top Value " A moderately wooded nose also exhibits a touch of menthol on the classic Gevrey aromas of earth, underbrush, game and cool dark berry fruit. There is excellent mid-palate density to the intense, robust and muscular flavors that coat the palate on the slightly rustic and impressively long finish. Worth considering."Allen Meadows 89-91 points
