2015 Domaine Anne Gros Clos Vougeot Grand Cru "Le Grand Maupertuis" (Pre-Arrival) Back In Stock!
2015 Domaine Anne Gros Clos Vougeot Grand Cru "Le Grand Maupertuis" (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Clos Vougeot le Grand Maupertui has a distinctly more floral bouquet than many others than I tasted from barrel, iris and crushed violet petals infusing the black cherry and blueberry fruit. I admire the precision and terroir expression here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe, red and black fruit, a hint of mulberry and white pepper developing in the glass. It has a grainy texture, firm structure and natural balance and poise on the sustained finish. Persistent in the mouth, this is an excellent Clos Vougeot from Anne Gros. The Ru ...Read More »

1992 Joseph Phelps "Backus" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The stunning 1992 Cabernet Sauvignons include the less minty, but opulent, rich, full-bodied, highly-concentrated, creamy-textured 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard. Long known for its minty, chocolate-scented nose, the 1992 displays plenty of cassis and chocolate, but less mint than usual. It can be drunk young and cellared for 15-20 years." (6/1995)

This stunning effort is a clear candidate for 'wine of the vintage' honors though patience is absolutely required." (10/2009) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale violet color.

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Zinfandel Martinelli Road Vineyard (100% Zinfandel with 16.3% alcohol) is from a vineyard planted in the 1880s and situated near the Martinelli family's famed Jackass Vineyard. Earthy, peppery, spicy notes intermixed with hints of lavender, black cherries, plums, figs and forest floor emerge from this spicy cuvee. Displaying great intensity, massive richness and a huge, unctuously textured finish (16.3% alcohol), it, too, should be consumed over the next 7-8 years.

Creamy-sweet and supple in the mouth; has just enough acidity to give clarity to its plump fruit. Finishes with silky, fine-grained tannins and persistent, thoroughly ripe fruit.

Produced from a cooler exposition, it reveals sweet raspberry and black cherry fruit, a crushed rock character, full body, and beautiful length as well as depth.

Sweet and supple on entry, then spicy and backward in the middle, with a juicy peppery quality and a strong impression of dry extract. This very dry, tactile wine's rising finish suggests it will reward aging."

It is dense, pure, and multilayered, with an opulence that provides immediate accessibility. However, there is no doubting that it will stand up to 10-14 years of cellaring.

2010 Rochioli "Sweetwater Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2010 Rochioli "Sweetwater Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Pinot Noir Sweetwater is a large-scaled, dramatic wine. It boasts huge black fruit and notable intensity from start to finish. Sweet, perfumed aromatics develop in the glass, but the Sweetwater remains tannic and in need of at least another 1-2 years in bottle. The wine literally sizzles on the palate with energy, and my impression is it will be magnificent with time. The clones in this parcel are Dijon, 777 and Rochioli. (AG)" (2/2012) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Forward, flashy deliciousness is the signature of this wine, which comes from Rochioli’s youngest vineyard that ...Read More »

93 points Robert Parker: "The 2004 Syrah Alder Springs Vineyard The Terraces exhibits beautiful, pure blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with smoke and toasty oak. Rich, broad, and savory with light to moderate tannin, it will drink well for 7-8 years." (12/06) 90 points Stephen Tanzer: "Saturated medium ruby. Extremely unevolved nose features some exotic suggestions of apricot, peach and spice. Powerful, firmly built and superripe, with penetrating acidity and a distinct peppery element from the fermentation with the stems. Strong in tannic acid... Read More »

2004 Pax "Castelli-Knight Ranch" Russian River Valley Syrah

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The profound 2004 Syrah Castelli-Knight Ranch was fashioned from another north-facing, rocky hillside parcel sourced by Pax Mahle and Joe Donelan. Fermented with 75% whole clusters and aged 17 months in French oak (40% new), it exhibits gorgeous aromas of barbecue smoke, roasted meats, tapenade, blackberries, and cassis. Tremendous ripeness, fabulous intensity, and no hard edges make for an opulent, stunning Syrah... (RP)" (12/2006) 92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good ruby-red.

2013 Rochioli "Little Hill" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Little Hill tastes like unmanipulated, super-concentrated black cherry and black raspberry juice. Little oak is noticeable, and the wine offers stunning purity, texture and length. Perfumed and intense but not the least bit heavy, with no component out of balance, this wine will require patience. Give it several years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10-15 years. 92-94+ (RP)" (12/2014) 94 points Vinous: "The Rochioli 2013 Pinot Noir Little Hill is one of the most structured wines in the lineup.

2005 Carlisle "Cardiac Hill" Bennett Valley Syrah

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pepper, earth, blueberry, and black currant aromas jump from the glass of the 2005 Syrah Cardiac Hill. This full-bodied, powerful, tannic wine needs plenty of bottle age as it is one of the more unevolved examples in this portfolio. Readers should not hesitate to get on Carlisle’s mailing list before the world discovers what compelling beverages are being produced here. (RP)" (12/2006) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Spicy cherry and dark berry aromas with incisive licorice and espresso accents.

2011 Abreu "Madrona Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the back hills of St. Helena, in the direction of Spring Mountain, comes Abreu’s first single-vineyard offering from vineyards planted in 1982, the Madrona Ranch. This cuvée usually contains at least 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and one of the highest percentages of Cabernet Franc, ranging from 33% to 45%. Tiny quantities of Petit Verdot and Merlot are also added, depending on how they fared in any given vintage. Last year I mentioned that the 2011 Proprietary Red Madrona Ranch was one of the rare Abreu wines that showed a little herbaceousness, but that ...Read More »

The wine has excellent texture, outstanding ripeness and precision, and a long, elegant finish. It could be mistaken for a premier cru Chambolle-Musigny." (12/2007) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red. Intensely perfumed aromas of ripe blackberry and cherry, complemented by exotic sandalwood and fresh rose. Ripe and dense but pure, with vibrant red and dark berry flavors, refreshing minerality and a suave toasty note. This is a ...Read More »

1992 Graham's Malvedos Port Back In Stock!
1992 Graham's Malvedos Port

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Typically sweet, plump, fleshy, and fat, the opaque purple-colored 1992 Malvedos Vintage Port reveals copious aromas of flowers, licorice, and black fruits, gorgeously-seductive, voluptuously-textured flavors, light tannin, and a long, alcoholic finish. It should drink well in 2-3 years and last for up to 20." (2/1995) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Impressively rich and concentrated aromas of currants and fruit, with hints of earth. Big and thick on the palate, showing masses of fruit and tannins. Almost as good as the Graham '91. This one is built for long aging; try in 2000." (6/1995) ...Read More »

2007 Copain "Kiser En Bas" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2007 Copain "Kiser En Bas" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid red. Deeper and darker in character than the En Haut, displaying scents of black raspberry, boysenberry and cola, with a suave undercurrent of minerals adding vivacity. Deeply concentrated dark berry flavors stain the palate and pick up a sexy cola element on the back end. Finishes with very good focus and a lingering note of cherry-cola." (6/2009) K&L Notes: This is from the lower portion of the Kiser vineyard, planted in the far western "Deep End" of Anderson Valley close to the Mendocino Coast.
