  1. Vieux Chateau Certan Pomerol 2018 Pre-Arrival
    WE98-100
    DEC99
    JD96-98
    JS99-100
    WA97-100
    VM94-97
    $294.98

    97-100 Points! The 2018 Vieux Château Certan is a blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Yields were 40 hectoliters per hectare. The wine has a pH of 3.78, 14.4% alcohol and an IPT (total polyphenol index) of 77. Medium to deep garnet-purple-it has a very vibrant color-it drifts effortlessly out of the glass with wonderfully intense, beautifully delineated scents of red roses, black raspberries, kirsch and Darjeeling tea before the powerful, profound black fruits kick in: baked plums, wild blueberries, molten licorice and mulberries with touches of cigar box, cinnamon stick, tapenade and truffles. Full-bodied, rich, densely packed and revealing layer upon layer of red and black fruits with an incredible array of floral and spicy sparks, it has a high level of super ripe, incredibly fine, velvety soft tannins and fantastic freshness (not just from acid but from bright, crunchy fruit). It finishes very long, marvelously layered and with such jaw-dropping brightness from the fruit, the end is almost electric. Incredible. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    99-100 Points! This is a significant VCC with masses of fruit and juicy tannins. It's fresh, but impresses you with the rich and powerful fruit. A tower of a wine. Incredible depth and density. Thick and muscular. It is 30 per cent cabernet franc, the rest merlot. - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

  2. Vieille Julienne Chateauneuf du Pape Réservé 2016
    DEC96
    JD100
    VM96+
    $289.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    100 Points! A modern-day legend in the making is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve from Jean-Paul Daumen, one of the greatest young wines I’ve ever tasted. This Grenache-dominated effort was brought up all in foudre and tastes like the essence of this incredible terroir located on the northern edge of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Deep purple-colored, with an intoxicating bouquet of black raspberries, crushed herbs, black licorice, spring flowers, and spice, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a deep, multi-dimensional texture, a huge mid-palate, and a finish that goes on for over a minute. Not far off the style of the Les Trois Sources, yet with another level of concentration, it has a certain accessibility yet won’t be at its best for another 4-5 years, but it will keep for another two decades or more. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  3. La Rioja Alta Rioja Gran Reserva 904 2010
    JS98
    WA96+
    $59.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now, or hold for a very long time. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  4. Tenuta Greppo Biondi-Santi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2001
    WS93
    WE96
    VM94
    $399.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! Biondi-Santi's 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is just as terrific in bottle as it was when I tasted it from cask last year. A dark, translucent red, it reveals superb freshness in its aromatics, with notes of small red fruits, spices, flowers, mint and anise that you could get lost in. It is perhaps less rewarding on the palate today, but its class is amply evident in the purity of its fruit and silkiness of its tannins. This is a wine built for tertiary development that will occur over the following years and decades. Readers who appreciate classically built, age-worthy wines and have the time to wait will find much to admire. In the meantime, this Brunello is all about potential, and there is plenty of that here. It is a great effort. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media Learn More
  5. Montevertine Le Pergole Torte 2007
    VM96
    $169.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! The 2007 Le Pergole Torte is rich, layered and sensual, all typical of this warm vintage. Bold red-fleshed fruits, spices, mint and rose petals are laced together in an expressive, resonant Pergole Torte built on pure texture. The 2007 is one of the raciest, sexiest Pergole Torte's in the estate's history. It can be enjoyed now or any time over the next 10-15 years. I don't expect to see the 2007 shut down, as it has always been open, rich and voluptuous. The 2007 has always been gorgeous, as it is once again today. Martino Manetti adds that while 2007 was a warm year, conditions never reached the extremes seen in 2003, nor were there any real spikes to speak of. Rather, temperatures were higher than normal over an extended period of time, but then settled back closer to normal in the weeks leading up to harvest. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media 2016 Learn More
  6. Montevertine Le Pergole Torte Riserva 1990
    VM96
    $499.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    96 Points! Montevertine's 1990 Le Pergole Torte Riserva is deep, powerful and explosive, with striking richness. This particular bottle, a double magnum, is not the finest example of the 1990 Riserva I have tasted, but even so, it is clear this is a special wine. A very special wine. The unctuous, sweet fruit that is so typical of the Riserva is there, yet the wine is a bit disjointed, with the aromatics more forward than the palate. It is interesting to note that, while 1990 is generally regarded as a warm vintage that produced opulent wines, the harvest started on October 15, which was on the later side by the standards of the era. The best bottles of the 1990 can be transcendental. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media 2016 Learn More
  7. Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 1991
    VM96
    $199.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! Bright, deep red-ruby. Wonderfully mellow and complex on the nose, offering everything from fresh dark fruits to chocolate, red licorice, flowers and graphite minerality. Pure liquid silk in the mouth; at once sharply delineated and edge-free thanks to superb harmonious acidity, possessing a wonderfully tight core of juicy fruit. This very dry, classic Howell Mountain Cabernet finishes with serious dusty but sweet tannins and will still improve. Stunning wine. (13% alcohol) - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media 2018 Learn More
  8. La Mission Haut Brion Pessac-Leognan 1998
    WS96
    WA98
    $399.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! A candidate for the wine of the vintage from this somewhat forgotten year, consumers should be seeking out wines from the Right Bank and Graves as 1998 was a great vintage in those appellations. La Mission’s 1998 exhibits a healthy, opaque blue/purple color with no lightening at the edge. Thirty minutes of aeration brings forth a sensational bouquet of chocolate, cedar, truffles, graphite, blackberries, cassis and incense. La Mission’s so-called scorched earth/charcoal/hot rocks characteristic has not yet appeared. Full-bodied with superb purity, a multilayered texture, sweet tannin, good acidity and a fabulously long finish, this great, young La Mission-Haut-Brion’s finest days are yet to come. - Robert Parker, robertparker.com, 2012 Learn More
  9. Paul Jaboulet Aine Hermitage La Chapelle 2016
    JD95-97
    WA95-97
    VM96-98
    $184.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96-98 Points! Dark purple. A highly expressive, mineral-accented bouquet evokes fresh blackberry and blueberry, candied flowers, incense and exotic spices. Sweet, palate-staining black and blue fruit liqueur and violet pastille flavors are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper and bitter chocolate; a spicecake nuance gains strength with aeration. Steadily building tannins add shape and grip to the extremely long, incisive finish, which emphatically repeats the floral and mineral notes. I wouldn't be surprised to see this wine turn out as well as the amazing 2015 version. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media Learn More
  10. Outpost Zinfandel Howell Mountain 2016
    JD96
    $49.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! I loved the 2016 Zinfandel Howell Mountain, and this beauty has everything you could want from a mountain Zinfandel. Possessing a huge perfume of blue fruits, leafy herbs, and cedarwood, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, silky tannins, and a pleasure-bent, complex, layered texture that just begs to be drunk. It too will keep for over a decade. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  11. Ramey Chardonnay Woolsey Road Vineyard Russian River Valley 2015
    WE96
    DEC96
    JD94
    WA95
    $54.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! This cool-sited single vineyard, owned by the Martinelli family, was planted to Ramey’s specifications in 2007 using the famous old-fashioned Wente clone. Though the vineyard lies in the Russian River appellation, this wine is more Sonoma Coast in style, with wonderful lemony aromas and very bright, intense citrussy flavours. There's plenty of vibrancy and zing, and silky rather than creamy textures. Nineteen months' ageing in 20% new French oak barrels gives it depth and balance. - Decanter Magazine Learn More
  12. Petra Unger Grüner Veltliner Gottschelle 2017
    DEC96
    $18.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! Rich and powerful with aromas of cardamon, lemongrass, red apples, pear, lime, honey, hazelnuts with a hint of seaweed and rose adding interest. These flavours follow through to the palate, which has finesse and texture. Elegantly structured with an opulent finish. - Decanter World Wine Awards 2019 Learn More
  13. Rippon Pinot Noir Mature Vine Central Otago 2015
    JS96
    WA94
    $54.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! A blend of parcels across the property, this has a deeply spicy array of mixed fruit, framed in aromas of flint, dark stones, pepper, woody spices, wild herbs and fresh earth. Texturally, this is super fine and taut, which reflects the schist soils found here. Very fine, powerful and athletic with sustained fruit flavors that are typical of pinot noir. Long aging potential. Drink or hold. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  14. Cristom Pinot Noir Louise Vineyard Eola-Amity Hills 2016
    JS96
    VM94
    $54.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! This delivers an ethereal and fragrant impression on the nose with a bright, red-fruit theme that is framed in sweet spices and flowers. The palate has a strong array of ripe red cherries with sappy complexity and crisply defined tannins. Impressive tension here. Needs time. Try from 2021. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  15. Staglin Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley 2015
    WS94
    JD98
    JS94
    WA94-96
    $249.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! Still showing brilliantly (and I don't expect that to change), the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has the ripe, expansive, sexy style of the vintage front and center. Loads of crème de cassis, blueberries, crushed violets, and spice all soar from this beauty, which is powerful and rich, yet perfectly balanced. At the same quality level as the 2013, it's nevertheless in a much more approachable, flamboyant style. Drink it any time over the coming two decades or more. It's a gorgeous, gorgeous wine. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More

    WE93
    DEC96
    WA94
    Special Price $49.98 Regular Price $89.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! Dalmau comes from the Canajas vineyard, which has a high concentration of limestone. The sweet, savoury, red-fruited Tempranillo core is underpinned by the grassiness and tannic structure of 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Graciano. - Decanter Magazine Learn More
  18. Paolo Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc 2015
    JS96
    WA95+
    $69.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! The redcurrant-compote character really pops out here, before dried cranberries, licorice and spice box all come to the fore. Tannic and very expansive, sweeping through a whole array of red berries via linear acidity and wrapping itself up in a long finish. Drink in 2023. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  19. Paolo Scavino Barolo Monvigliero 2015
    JS96
    WA94
    $49.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! The sour cherries really lift this off on the nose, catching suggestions of candied citrus, tile, roasted herbs and cedar. Racy and sexy, drawn out into shape by the forthright acidity and steely tannins. Drink in 2023. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  20. Berliquet Saint Emilion 2018 Pre-Arrival
    JD93-96
    JS94-95
    WA93-95
    $46.98

    93-96 Points! A rough blend of 78% Merlot and 22% Franc made by the team at Canon (Thomas Duclos also consults here), the 2018 Château Berliquet sports a deeper purple color as well as a complex, layered style in its black raspberry, white flowers, dried earth, spice, and forest floor aromas and flavors. It's medium to full-bodied, has a rounded, expansive texture, beautiful tannins, and brilliant freshness and purity as well as a serious kick of minerality on the finish. Coming from a smaller 10-hectare terroir located on the clay and limestone soils on the upper plateau, it will spend 16 months in 45% new French oak. Tasted twice. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com

    93-95 Points! This was really Nicolas Audebert’s first vintage at Berliquet, since the property was acquired by Chanel in the autumn of 2017. The most significant, immediate change from 2018 came from noticing that blocks of the vineyard had Merlot and Cabernet Franc interplanted. These used to be harvested together. This year the different cultivars were flagged and harvested separately so as to achieve optimal ripeness for both varieties. The 2018 Berliquet is blended of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc and has 14.5% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, it leaps from the glass with bold kirsch, blueberry compote and Black Forest cake with touches of cloves, lavender, menthol and lilacs. Medium to full-bodied and elegant, with lovely freshness lifting the densely packed blue and black fruit flavors, it has a velvety texture and long, earthy finish. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
