Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Buon Consiglio 2005 Product #32281 (In Stock)
Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Buon Consiglio 2005 Ar.Pe.Pe. Valtellina Grumello Buon Consiglio 2005

"The 2005 Valtellina Superiore Grumello Riserva Buon Consiglio is another wonderfully complete wine. A host of blood orange, white pepper, cranberry, mulling spices and dried flowers lift from the glass. This is one of the most intensely aromatic, exotic wines in the range. Readers should be prepared for a deceptively mid-weight wine that has a lot going on. The 2005 spent 30 days in cask followed by 4 years in cask and cement. The long maceration and aging time results in a wine with more tertiary-leaning aromas and flavors."  Vinous 94 points

Eric Rodez Empreinte De Terroir Pinot Noir 2005 Product #32752 (In Stock)
Eric Rodez  Empreinte De Terroir Pinot Noir 2005 Eric Rodez  Empreinte De Terroir Pinot Noir 2005

Eric's Empreinte De Terroir series is designed to showcase the unique character of his Grand Cru Ambonnay vineyard in a single vintage - in this case, the generously textured and very easy to love 2005 harvest.  From 30 year-old Pinot Noir vines, it is 100% barrel fermented and aged and spends 8 years on the lees before disgorgement with just 2 g/l dosage.

As always, the 2005 shows a copper-tinged color with extremely fine bubbles.  Aromas of cherries, red flowers, and toast explode from the glass.  In the mouth it’s even more deep, rich, and robust than usual with complex flavors of red fruits, graphite and baked bread.  The flavors drive to a seemingly endless finish as hints of red raspberry and toast linger.  While fascinating to drink on its own, this would pair wonderfully with duck or any dish featuring wild mushrooms.  This will just get better in cellar over the next decade or so.

Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Product #26196 (In Stock)
Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Drinking beautifully right now, this is a rare "Library" release just received direct from the winery.  A stunning example of maturing Napa Cabernet!

"These wines certainly merit far more attention. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot (585 cases), was aged 24 months in 100% new Taransaud barrels. This is a younger, fresher, less complex style of wine, with loads of loamy soil as well as some volcanic/charcoal/ember-like notes that are vaguely reminiscent of a top Graves from Bordeaux. It is opaque purple, opulent, medium to full-bodied, rich and very satisfying. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. Drink 2015-2030" Wine Advocate 93 points
