93 Pts, James Suckling
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.

The Bisol “Jeio” Prosecco NV is a delicious sparkler that comes from the Veneto region of northeast Italy. A brilliant straw yellow color, the first sip is an intense and fresh nose of citrus fruits and saline sensations. If you love fruit forward sparklers… this one is for you.

This Cabernet dominant blend, cut off of mediterranean quartz soils, provides a wonderful dark fruited, chocolatey mix that Wine Spectator’s former Italian Editor-in-Chief, James Suckling called “serious richness”. It’s a crazy food friendly wine, but I wouldn’t waste my time pairing this with a salad, this has pizza wine written all over it. At today’s price, it shouldn’t need convincing, just some space cleared in the wine fridge.

“This great Barsac is just beginning to open up and not only has incredibly fine mango, papaya and star-fruit character but also something mineral. Great concentration and textural complexity right from the tip of your tongue to the end of the extremely long, very pure finish. You can enjoy this now, but I recommend cellaring it as long as you can, because this has at least 50 years of ageing potential!” – James Suckling
97 Pts (Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast)
The 2005 Yquem starts out incredibly welcoming with seductive aromas. The mouthfeel offers perfect balance with fresh acidity and elegance complimenting the wine’s power and giving it tremendous grace. It’s crazy good right now, but I think I will defer to Lisa Perotti-Brown, who said in her 97-pt review of this classic wine just last year, “This decadent flavor bomb still needs a good five to seven years in bottle before it is set to go off, but oh what a spectacle it will give then!” From what it’s already showing, this can be one special bottle for Sauternes collectors.

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.

This one is a beauty. A great mix of baked apple, mango and papaya with honeysuckle and vanilla. For a top-notch First Growth Sauternes with 95 points – perfectly cellared and stored for 15 years – price tag seems almost nonsensical. $33/375ml or $29.70/bottle when added to case orders. Who’s ready to drink their desert this Thanksgiving?

“Deep garnet in color, the 2009 Pontet-Canet slips sensuously from the glass with opulent scents of crème de cassis, baked plums and Black Forest cake plus suggestions of Chinese five spice, potpourri, oolong tea and menthol. Full-bodied, rich, spicy and oh-so-decadent in the mouth, it has a fantastically velvety frame and seamless freshness, finishing very long. Wow.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

92 Points, Decanter
As much as customer’s raved about last year’s Double Canyon, the 2016 blows it away. The 2016 Horse Hills comes roaring right out of the gates. On the attack, the wine offers intricately woven youthful tannins that give the wine a delicious and slightly chewy taste with beautiful bright red fruit. A ‘Best Buy’ designate from Wine & Spirits Magazine and a matching score courtesy of Decanter who called out the wine’s “wonderful, bright cassis fruit” and “velvety, soft tannins”.

Elena Walch’s 2019 Pinot Bianco may be the best example of Pinot Blanc I’ve ever had. Super light in color, with a busy nose that boasts ripe aromas of citrus, apple pie with a hint of fresh bouquet. Made entirely in stainless steel, the wine is expressive, fresh and finishes as clean and tight as can be. At 93 points and under $20, this one is a home run.

Well… I guess the cat is out of the bag on this one. Couldn’t keep it from Asimov at the New York Times or Decanter. Don’t let the price tag fool you. The 2019 Fabre-Montmayou Cabernet Franc is a gorgeous & serious wine that should be enjoyed like a Saturday nighter. Dark color and full throttle as you might expect out of the gate, giving way to pure fruit and a touch of that Cheval Blanc type jalapeno flavor that so intrigues lovers of world class Cab Franc.
Our vertical pack starts with the 2014 which received dueling 93s from both Decanter and James Suckling. In 2014 – Fuligni decided to add their entire Riserva barrels ($200 bucks a bottle) from the estate’s absolute oldest vineyards into the blend this year and you can certainly taste it. The 2013 may be even better and will not require the same patience. In fact, it is just entering its peak window – ready for enjoyment now or another few years in bottle. 97 points from James Suckling is about right. Our final bottle in this vertical line up – from the 96 point WS 2012 vintage – had disappeared entirely from most store shelves ages ago. In addition to the vintage rating, its 96 point score from Decanter made this the highest scoring Brunello of the entire vintage.
