Cristina and her family grow Sangiovese and Montepulciano in the Marches, a spectacularly beautiful spot in Italy right on the Adriatic coast. Brunori wines always represent great bang for the buck. Very rarely can find such pristine fruit and food friendliness in a $16 bottle of wine. This is a Tuesday night stunner!
Winemaker Alessandro Castellani’s 2013 Amarone is a big wine for sure, massive even. But it is the rare Amarone that is aromatically complex, with intense aromas of blackberries, anise and Asian spices. It’s wine for the table, a powerful, blockbuster of a wine,loaded with dark berries with a touch of bitter dark chocolate.
The flagship wine at Caymus Vineyards and one of the premier American Cabernet Sauvignon bottles in the marketplace: the Special Selection Cab. We were hoping to get our hands on a few cases, but they were only able to give us seven bottles. A ‘special’ price today for a wine that most people spend years on the sidelines waiting to get their hands on. Don’t miss out!
This Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend, a rich, teeth-staining wine, which delivers way more power, fruit and finish than any other sub-$25 Cabernet that I have tasted. This is juicy, powerful Cabernet, displaying the concentration and length generally found in bottles twice its price (because the juice IS in bottles twice its price).
If you haven’t had a bottle of Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, it’s time to change that immediately. There’s probably no better place to start than right here. The Chad 2018 shows off the best of Oregon in 2018; fine aromatics, pretty fruit and a long, mineral backbone that makes it great at the table with anything.

Château Clinet’s gravelly soils have been producing some of the greatest Merlot-based Bordeaux since the 15th century. Sexy and lush when young then evolving to incredible levels of complexity and elegance with incredible possibility for long aging, Chateau Clinet epitomizes what makes Pomerol one of the sacred places in Bordeaux.

Calling all collectors! Considered by some to be the best vintage of Bordeaux of the past three decades. Ideal dry and long growing conditions in the Left Bank allowed for beautifully balanced wines, with the Lascombes a perfect example of a modern style. Parker called it, “pure, seamless, full-bodied and opulent” and suggested it had another decade plus of prime aging.

Direct from the Chateau Lascombes’s (2nd Growth) Cellar, we have a library vintage of legendary character and depth. Wine Spectator’s 99-pt 2010 in Left Bank saw some of the finest Margaux ever produced. This Second-Growth is an absolute classic, Rober Parker, Jr. called Lascombes’ 2010, “the greatest Lascombes made to date” and called it “One of the great Margaux wines of the vintage.”
Winegrower Pascal Sirat farms his family’s 11 hectare of Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines, rooted in gravelly soils laced with veins of iron-rich clay. He’s got fairly old vines whose roots run very deep in the poor soil, tapping the mineral groundwater far below the surface. The resulting wines are ripe but fresh, with an aromatic complexity and stony finish usually reserved for wine twice the price.
The vineyards of Château Reverdi are classic Medoc. The 30 year-old Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot vines are farmed naturally. The wine defines the classic 2016 vintage with a deep, dark color, an enticing, forward bouquet of cedar, lead pencil and cassis, absolutely juicy fruit and a mineral backbone. Drink now-2025.
As always, my go-to under $20 Bordeaux, Chateau Roque le Mayne, knocks it out of the park in ’16. The nose is killer, flashing with intense red berries tinged with just the right amount of savory. It’s packed in the mid-palate with a stony minerality that keeps the wine fresh.
Château Sipian is an extremely well-regarded Left Bank estate with old vines, rooted in the classic gravelly soil of Bordeaux. This creates a perfect setting for making medium bodied, aromatic Cabernet based blends that drink well young, are fantastic at the table and age gracefully in a proper cellar.
