  1. "Le Pin-like", "Succulent" 2001 Pomerol Pre-Arrival Below It's Original Opening Price!

    To all Best Winers, Talk about your ‘Sleepers’! If you’ve ever read Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, you’ll notice he uses this term quite often when discussing certain wines from Bordeaux that fit a certain criteria. That criteria is a wine at a really fair price, that completely over delivers for that money. It’s also usually a wine that is not on peoples’ radars, as opposed...
  2. Cote Rotie for $18? Better Believe It...

All of those hi-falutin’ Cote Rotie, Hermitage and St. Joseph wines will set you back a pretty penny, especially...
  3. The World's Greatest Taster & His Benchmark 'New' Releases...

    To all Best Winers, He is…the Most Interesting Man in the World… Chaim Gur-Arieh has one heckuva story. C.G. DiArie Vineyards and Winery being just the latest installment of what has been a storied career. After immigrating to Israel from Turkey as a teenager, Chaim served as an officer in an Israeli tank division. That’s gnarly enough. I’ve never driven...

At first, we weren’t quite sure what to make of this offer we received from our sources in Europe. Thirteen year old Spanish wine...

  7. Great Wine, Great Price: Melville's 94pt 2012 Estate Pinot Noir

    To all Best Winers, One of California’s truly unique and captivating vineyards has done it again. Melville’s 2012 Santa Rita Hills Estate Pinot Noir is a masterpiece. I guess it’s pretty cool to know that your ‘estate’ wine comes from one of the most highly desirable ‘estates’ in the Santa Rita Hills. It’s literally a smorgasbord of clones and terroirs that the Melvilles and winemaker Greg...
  8. Bandol's Top 2011 Now In Stock! 94pts Just $29.98...

    To all Best Winers, The 2011 Gros’ Noré Bandol has just arrived and it is absolutely spectacular.  It is without a doubt one of the most riveting bottles of Mourvedre we’ve ever tasted. It’s truly remarkable what this relatively new domain has done in a very short period of time. I know some of you were hesitant ordering Bandol on...
  9. It's the 'Euro-Prisoners'! 93 & 91pt Value Reds from Dave Phinney...

    To all Best Winers, Location. Location Location. It’s the first rule of real estate, but apparently the last rule for Dave Phinney. After selling The Prisoner brand to Franciscan in 2010 for like, a zillion dollars, we suppose Dave can pretty much thumb his nose at any conventional wine thinking with that kind of green in the bank. A good...
  10. A Must-Try 100 Year-Old Vine Grenache Gris...from Utah?

Don’t worry, it’s just a metaphor. From death springs life. Something has to die for something to live. Or so Ruth...
