  1. Last Call on the Best (95pt) Crozes Hermitage Ever Produced...

    To all Best Winers, It's last call on the greatest Crozes Hermitage ever produced. I’m not kidding. Jaboulet’s 2009 Crozes Hermitage Domaine Thalabert is more than likely the finest red wine ever produced in Crozes Hermitage. Chapoutier has come close. As has Jaboulet itself. The 1990 Domaine Thalabert Crozes was my benchmark wine from the appellation. It was astonishing. Powerful...
  2. Scintillating, Reference (94) Point White from Manni Nössing!

    To all Best Winers, Here comes Kerner. A lot of times it’s not about the grape, or the place. It’s about the place and the grape. Alto Adige + Kerner = Wow This once-forgotten grape, a crossing of Riesling and Schiava created in Germany to anchor some disease-free, heavy-yielding vineyards to produce a bunch of cheap, swillin’ white wine, has...
  3. America's Best Price on a 100pt Masterpiece from Pegau!

    To all Best Winers, You know greatness when you taste it. I can honestly say that several of the finest wine drinking experiences I’ve had in my life have been from Domaine Pegau. Their 1981 Chateauneuf, consumed in 1992, showed me just how awesome older Chateauneuf could be, and fired my interest in the genre, which remains ridiculously strong to...
  4. The Critics Concur: Tolaini's Twin Tuscan Titans are Tops!

    To all Best Winers, It’s always good getting back with old friends. Tolaini is a label I hadn’t seen in a couple of years. I sold a ton of their fabulous 2007’s, which were quite possibly two of the finest deals in Tuscan wine I had ever tasted. Well, that is, until Tolaini’s 2009’s. Good grief, these cats are on...

  10. Huge Deal on a Groundbreaker from Cult Cab King Mark Herold

    To all Best Winers, Sometimes we just have to have something full-throttle, juicy, round, lush. Not every wine can be this ponderous thing. Sure it's fun to think about wine every once and a while, but gosh darn-it we like to drink it more! And speaking of round, juicy, lush wines, today’s offer gets no rounder, juicier and lush-er than...
