“For Bibi Graetz’s 20th anniversary of his beloved Testamatta, the superstar winemaker set out to make something truly age-worthy and spectacular and unlike anything he has made to date. Armed with his brand new, state-of-the-art winemaking facility in Florence, Graetz’s 2019 Testamatta is elegant and pure with multiple layers of depth and evolution. With part of the makeup consisting of vines from the 1950’s, the wine has such sophistication and intrigue and I suspect will continue to evolve into something special over the next three to four decades. ” – Nicholas

“The 2016 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Ravazzol dazzles with a vivid and exotic mix, as crushed rocks blow off to reveal bright cherries with autumnal spices and dusty rose. Its velvety-smooth yet energetic, with tart mineral-tinged berries giving way to cocoa, tobacco and exotic spice that saturates. While sweet on the nose, this is more savory on the palate and flinty through the finale, turning lightly structured and lingering incredibly long yet pure with the prettiest of red florals. Wow; the 2016 is finessed, delicate, feminine and communicates beautiful harmony. Lose some in your cellar.” – Eric Guido

Robert Parker famously said “Calera is one of the most compelling Pinot Noir specialists of not only the New World, but of Planet Earth.” He founded Mt. Harlan AVA and it is only right we offer his last Pinot from the amazing wine region he created. Critics were unanimous in their admiration of this wine, with three separate reviewers lofting generous 92+ scores for this Pinot Noir treat. This gorgeous Pinot Noir has a little age to it so it’s drinking like a dream right now. Planted in 1998, Ryan vineyard represents Calera’s highest elevation at more than 2,500 feet!

“This is the so-called “green label” Brunello with proprietor Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini’s signature on the front of the bottle. Her classic 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is sharp and tonic with wild raspberry, cassis, lilac, earth and garden herb. There is a sweet note of sour cherry on the mid-weight finish. This is made in a traditional approach with two years in casks made with both Slavonian and French oak.”

Can I say for certain this baby is going to wind up on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list this year? Not for certain, I suppose but it definitely follows their formula. This is a lights out new Super Tuscan release from a back vintage that Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate praised for showing the, “exuberance, softness and richness of the vintage”. I’m not at all surprised to see Wine Spectator shower it with a big 96-point score, it is an elite 2015 bottling. A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot — this is a knockout SuperTuscan, that you’ll want to snag a few of the 42 bottles total I have.

“This is really something. There’s purity and focus to the aromas of crushed berries, licorice and black tea, which follow through to an integrated palate of extremely fine, melted tannins that spread to the very ends of the wine. This is all about balance and length. It really is an emotional wine. Great follow-up to the 2017, which was also 100 points. Drinkable now, but better after 2024.” -James Suckling

“This is made from over 100-year-old vineyards and offers blackberries with blue fruit and dark chocolate. Shows bark and black truffle undertones, too. Tight and more focused than in past vintages. The quality of the tannins is more precise and fine. Blackberries and black truffles at the end. Drink or hold.” -James Suckling
It’s always nice to be in good standing with one of the most beloved wine brands in America! Our special relationship with the Wagner has granted us incredible access on their newest release! These won’t last long! This is an opulent, powerful dark-fruited Cabernet with tightly woven tannins, that is just raring and ready to go. Textbook, full-bodied, revved up and ready to go, this new Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet is the definition of a crowd pleaser.
2x Wine Spectator Wine of the Year Winner
Year in, year out the Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon from Caymus is one of the very best Cabernets produced in Napa Valley and everywhere else. There just never seems to be any bad vintages. Every year, Caymus sets aside the best barrels of our Cabernet Sauvignon to produce their ‘Special Selection’. It’s so incredibly smooth with fine, velvety tannins and no hard edges. It’s one of those wines that’s “good to go” almost immediately, but can also be aged up to two decades and enjoyed along the wine. It’s a sophisticated beauty, for sure.

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.

Antonio Galloni called it, “hands down one of the wines of the vintage.” The Wine Advocate chipped in with “a refreshing, beautifully perfumed and skillfully crafted expression of the vintage.” Here’s what I’ll say: How could you do any better than securing a few bottles of a wine with 30-40 years of life left that is already showing better than giants such as Lafite, Margaux and Le Pin. There aren’t many years in Bordeaux’s history where one of the top 3-5 wines of the vintage was a $105 bottling and not one available at four figures.

” The 2016 Château Poesia is more open and showy compared to the Barde Haut, offering fabulous limestone-like character in its kirsch and currant fruits and notes of dried herbs, white truffle, and dried flowers. Possessing medium to full body, ripe, present tannins, terrific concentration, and a great finish, it’s another incredibly classy Saint Emilion from the Garcin-Lévêque family.”
