The 2019 Abbonna Dolcetto Dogliani Sori di But is a must try. Drawn off the highest vineyard in Dogliani where Dolcetto is king. Beautifully dark violet in color, with wonderful aromas of black cherry, tea leaves and sage, fermented in steel vats to allow these ‘grand cru’ ancient plantings to shine through unencumbered. This is must try – get it before these vineyards are gone forever.

This offer is really an easy one. Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres (Baron Eric Rothschild from ‘Chateau Lafite Rothschild’ and Nicolas Catena from ‘Catena’) join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec, crafted nearly 4600 feet above sea level and offered for a fantastic price. This beauty that James Suckling called, “Pure Malbec” is a case buy all the way.

“Beautifully done, the 2018 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast has an incredible sense of purity and finesse while packing plenty of classic California fruit. Vivid ruby-hued with a kaleidoscopic array of framboise, spring flowers, charcoal, toasted spices, and damp earth, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, incredible purity of fruit, integrated acidity, and a great finish. This quintessential Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is already drinking brilliantly yet will keep for at least 7-8 years.”
The 2018 Carl Roy Stag’s Leap District is a wine that was never supposed to be poured anywhere but the finest steakhouses from SF to NYC. But that all changed in March. Even so, when I got the call asking if I would like this Stag’s Leap Cuvée from Carl Roy, I thought it was a mistake. From the most storied AVA of Napa and somehow just $35/btl? Hurry because this one won’t last!
Drawn from two choice spots in the Columbia Valley where Washington’s high desert land meets the Columbia River – the 2018 Cascade Heights is a juicy, inky purple, full-bodied Cabernet. Despite the bright tannins that argue for a successful drinking window of over 10+ years, this big, juicy cab is drinking excellent right now. The ‘X’ factor though is the price. At just $15/btl on bottle 1, this is unrivaled value territory.
If you haven’t yet had any of the wines from Castello di Volpaia, now is the perfect time to change that. This one, their most affordable in the crowd, is their bid for Nicholas the ultimate Super Tuscan Bargain of the Year. A predominantly Sangiovese blend that also features Cabernet, the “Citto” is made in 100% stainless steal vats to properly showcase the intense and vibrant youthful fruit. The perfect compliment to pizza, this is one to drink now while it’s fresh, silky and oh so juicy.

Drawn from some the finest parcels on the storied hill of Montosoli, James Suckling says of the tiny Cerbaia estate’s newest release: “Elena Pellagrini’s 2015 Brunello is fragrant, redolent of purple flowers, sage and wild berries. The wine is dark and powerfully concentrated yet finishes fresh and kind stony, making it both fantastic at the table now and a great candidate for long aging”
Chad’s latest release is the 2018 Napa Valley Proprietary Red Wine. This Cabernet-based blend, a rich, teeth-staining wine, delivers way more power, fruit and finish than any other $25 Napa Valley red that I have tasted all year. It features aromas and flavors of black currant, plum, mocha and cigar box, leading to a packed middle core of black fruit. The ’18 Chad Prop Red displays the concentration and length generally found in bottles twice its price (that’s because what’s in the bottle IS twice the price!).
Obviously, I can’t tell you all the details of the vineyard source but I can let you in on a few of the details. Crafted using a fruit from 1000-1500 ft in elevation, Chad’s 2019 is cool climate Pinot at its best– especially given the price tag. While similar wines (very similar wines) will fetch a $45 price tag, you can snag it today for half off that price on bottle one.

The 2015 Edmond de Rothschild “Chateau des Laurets” St. Emilion is something special and even after a barrage of fabulous Bordeaux offers this year, I’m still calling it the Bordeaux of the year. It absolutely dazzles, displaying all the silky, elegant tannins and harmonious nature characteristic of the vintage. Lay some down in a dark cellar for the long haul but don’t be afraid to enjoy some right now.

The 2016 Chateau Martinat combines plush New World concentration with classic Old World backbone. In the 97pt 2016 vintage in Bordeaux that Antonio Galloni called, “fantastic, sublime and at times entrancing”, it’s one of the best bang for the bucks out there. Deep purple in color, packed with ultra-ripe black fruit concentration yet velour-like texture, finishing with a ripe tannin finish that argues for another 6-10 years of cellar slumber.

“The 2009 Palmer is unquestionably one of the greatest young Bordeaux I’ve tasted, and it has a rare mix of richness and elegance that’s incredible. Blackcurrants, violets, lead pencil shavings and a touch of minerality all emerge from this rich, massively concentrated Margaux that still glides across the palate with no sense of weight or heaviness. It’s perfectly balanced, has a ripe, hedonistic core of fruit, as well as integrated acidity. It’s a dream today, but is going to have 30-40 years or more of prime drinking.” -Jeb Dunnuck
