2014 Clos du Val Carneros Chardonnay (Previously $25)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay, which displays slightly fresher acids, is basically an unoaked presentation even if there is wood being used. The wine offers pleasant citrus, medium body, and a good, clean, fresh style. (RP)" (12/2015) K&L Notes: Made exclusively using grapes from the Clos du Val Carneros estate vineyard, the 2014 Chardonnay is a vivid and alluring wine, with layered aromas of baked apple, orange blossom, pear, butterscotch and brioche. On the palate, bright, mouthwatering acidity and wet stone minerality add poise and precision to flavors of nectarine and Anjo... Read More »

2014 Remo Farina Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso (Elsewhere $18)

Wine Spectator: "This easy-drinking red is light- to medium-bodied and balanced, offering a creamy mix of crushed cherry, mocha and cream notes. (AN)" (2/2017) K&L Notes: A distinctive style of wine from Valpolicella in the Veneto, often referred to as the poor man's Amarone. Rather than making wine from dried grapes, as they do Amarone, Rispasso uses an ancient technique where a wine is refermented with the skins and pips of pressed Amarone or Recioto, adding depth and character. Remo Farina's is then aged in 90% Slavonian oak barrels and 10% French and American oak for six months. ... Read More »

When it did, it revealed gently persistent fruit, dark cherries with a whiff of balsamic, fine tannins holding the wine’s clean, remarkably delicate flavors.

Connoisseurs Guide: "No matter that this unoaked bottling treds a direct, green apple line with few complex adjuncts in its makeup, such is the way of Chardonnays of its ilk, and this one makes a pretty good stab at capturing lively, somewhat juicy fruit. There is a not unexpected bit of fresh, slightly candied fruit here and little in the way of the rich, buttery side of the variety to be sure.

Ch. L’Avocat is from the small commune of Cerons, which is located just north of Barsac and Sauternes in the southern Graves appellation.

2015 Beckmen Vineyard "Estate" Santa Ynez Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $28)

93 points Rhone Report: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate from Beckmen is 100% varietal and was brought up in 50% new French oak. Cassis, vanilla bean, hints of mint and bay leaf all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated beauty that has wonderful purity, plenty of tannin and a great finish. Located just outside of Los Olivos, the Beckmen Family has been a cornerstone of Santa Ynez’s wine industry since 1994. They pull largely from their estate Purisima Mountain Vineyard (planted in 1996) in Ballard Canyon and the wines are consistently outstanding. In a ...Read More »

2014 Gainey "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay (Elsewhere $22)

92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay is very pretty, supple and nuanced. Apricot, orange blossom, mint, butter and sweet spices flesh out. Supple, forward and tasty, the 2014 is a solid choice for drinking over the next few years. The 2014 finishes with lovely brightness and intensity. This is very nicely done. Gainey makes as many as twenty different wines in each vintage, many of them sold directly at the winery. These four offerings represent the core of the estate's production. Once again, I was quite impressed with what I tasted. The wines are made in an unfussy, mi ...Read More »

2012 Miguel Merino "Viñas Jovenes" Crianza Rioja (Previously $15)

A longtime participant in the wine business, Miguel decided that rather than retire, he wanted to fulfill his dream of owning vines and making wine. Based in the Rioja Alta town of Briones, Miguel Merino makes, as he likes to put it, an "updated classic" style of Rioja, all from his own 2 hectares of vines and several hectares of vineyards owned by a close friend. All the fruit is from sloped, primarily chalky clay vineyards (Miguel is a fan of his slopes) within the cooler climate Rioja Alta town of Briones, which makes these wine a terrific showcase o...

2012 Torti Barbera Oltrepo Pavese (Previously $18)

The Barbera grapes for this wine were grown in vineyards dating back to the early 19th century. It's a vibrant ruby red in the glass with a dry, full body. Thanks to the long growing season in this northern part of Italy, the wine develops gorgeous acid that makes it a perfect accompaniment to roasted and braised meats.

2014 Domaine Aubaï Mema "Albion" Gard Blanc (Previously $13)

An organically farmed, naturally made Chardonnay-Viognier blend from Aubais, a small medieval village south of Nîmes. The aromatic and supple Albion won the Gold medal from the Gilbert & Gaillard Wine Guide in 2011 and stands as winemaker Mark Haynes's signature white. Mark is a spirited man who came to winemaking late in life when he realized that so many producers in the Gard region were turning their backs on winemaking and farming. The region is in the south of France about 30 minutes from Nimes. It was his summer home in his childhood and he always ... Read More »

2014 Jean-Louis Denois "CabernetS" Haute Vallee de l'Aude (Previously $15)

David Schildknecht gives an interesting perspective on this Languedoc producer: "Jean-Louis Denois is a troublemaker – for example, he battled the French authorities for the right to plant Riesling in the Languedoc – and we all know that a lot of good (though in his case no right to Riesling) can come from troublemakers."

2010 Domaine A "petit a" Bordeaux Blend Tasmania (Previously $30)

94 points James Halliday: "The colour is exceptional for a 6yo wine, as is its freshness. My comments (and points remain the same...The high percentage of merlot is intended to make this a quick-developing wine, although matured in used French barriques for 2 years, plus further time in the cellar until it is judged ready. Judged by normal standards, extremely full-bodied, but by those of Domain A, less so. And it must be said the palate borders on outright juicy, with cassis, redcurrant, mulberry and spice." (10/2016) 94 points James Suckling: "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Fran ...Read More »

2014 Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun) Moulin-a-Vent Les Thorins" (Previously $26)

93 points Vinous: "Brilliant red. Energetic, mineral-accented cherry and black raspberry aromas, with a sexy floral nuance adding complexity. Offers juicy, impressively concentrated red and dark berry flavors that suavely combine power and delicacy. Vibrant and penetrating on the finish, which shows outstanding clarity and mineral-driven persistence. (JR)" (8/2016) 91 points James Suckling: "A linear Beaujolais with a pretty backbone of tannins and polished fruit. Medium body. Vivid and firm. A little salty at the end. Drink now." (2/2017)

2014 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $230) Top Pick!
2014 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $230)

98 points James Suckling: "Loads of dark tobacco aromas with blackcurrants and black olives. Boysenberries, too. Full to medium body, ultra-fine tannins and lots of flavors of smoke, dried roasted chillis, black truffles, mushrooms and fruit. Bright acidity on the finish. Sexy and subtle austerity. Alluring. Very approachable now but better in 2021." (1/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014s, where the production of Napanook was only 2,200 cases and Dominus slightly more than the 2015 at 4,000 cases, was another early harvest, although somewhat later than 2015.
