  1. Feudi Closeout Part II: Just $9.98 for this $21 91pt Campania Red!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Aglianico is, essentially, the Nebbiolo of the south.  Those of you enamored by the perfume, structure and longevity of the wines from Piedmont's Barolo and Barbaresco areas should definitely be cozying up with this, the most important grape of Italy's Campania region. This is most certainly the best grape going in this neck of the woods...
  2. Compelling, Double 95pt Syrah at 40% Off!

    To all Wine Exchangers, When we first tasted Qupe’s varietally designated Central Coast Syrah back in the early 80s, we had no reference point.  It was a totally new idea in California wine.  A lot has happened since that time.  It came to pass that everyone began making Syrah because California (and Washington for that matter) decided that Syrah was going...
  3. 94pt Loire Valley Wonder from Baumard, Just $22.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, When you do this wine thing professionally every day, it's a good idea not to play favorites. You can drink the same wine every night as a consumer if you want to.  But as a wine merchant, part of the fun is the variety. Besides, even the best labels don't necessarily hit it out of the...
  4. Amazing Bordeaux Deal: Only $11.98 Gets You This Double 90+ Pointer!

    To all Wine Exchangers, If I'm not mistaken, we here at the Exchange have written up Les Grands Marechaux for both e-mail offerings and the Stock Report more than any other Bordeaux estate.  Begs the question that with over 10,000 estates in the Bordeaux area...why?  With all the options out there, the reason is simple… this estate is the epitome of consistency...
  5. Wow, Over 40% Off This 95pt Old Vine Barossa Shiraz!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Man, how much wine from Ben Glaetzer have we sold over the last 20 years? Ben, and before Ben, Ben’s dad Colin, set the bar for Barossa Valley reds starting in the late-1990’s.  Ben, the kid, had his dad’s winemaking and vineyard chops as well as his old man’s connections, the Glaetzer family having been firmly...
  6. Half Off This 94pt Library Release Cabernet That Comes Up Aces!

    To all Wine Exchangers, The Blackjack is back! After the success of our previous offering on the Blackjack Ranch Harmonie 2005 we went right back to Blackjack proprietor Roger Wisted and asked, “What else you got?” And, as Roger would, he pulled this ‘Ace’ right from his sleeve. First, for those of you that missed the previous missive, or those...
  7. 97 & 95 Point 2007 and 2008 Brunellos Below Original Price!

    To all Wine Exchangers, OK, you guys hammered our previous offering of the Siro Pacenti Brunello di Montalcino 2008, one of the finer Brunello acquisitions we’ve made in quite some time. We listened, we heard you loud and clear, and we acted upon your interest, going out and scoring some more great, older Brunello just in time for the Holidays...
  8. Spain Does It Again: Advocate 92pt Knockout, Just $9.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, This wine is another one of those Spanish ‘head-scratchers’.How in the heck do they do this? When we tasted this wine we flat-out started chuckling.  The Enrique Mendoza La Tremenda Monastrell 2014 is so laughably good for the money it was truly unbelievable. We confirmed the price once, twice, and then jumped in. Enrique Mendoza founded...
  9. They're Back! More Epic, High-Scoring, Value-Priced Chablis from La Chablisienne!

    To all Wine Exchangers, At this point we will assume everyone has heard the one about how good the 2014 white Burgundies are in general, and how Chablis in particular had a superb harvest.  As a quick note, here’s a summary line from Wine Advocate’s Neal Martin who proclaimed, “…in respect to 2014, they have one of the best Chablis...
  10. Outstanding 2001 Right Bank Masterpiece, Only $34.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, The other day one of the major suppliers we work with in Bordeaux mentioned to me just the other day, “...these older values that taste great are becoming a rarity.” One of the finest treasure troves of older wines that may start drying up soon comes from the consistenty damn-tasty Chateau Dalem.  Recently, we were offered this 16 year-old bottling from...
