2014 Rhys "Bearwallow Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Bearwallow Vineyard is a solid step up over the Anderson Valley release and has more tension, elegance and precision. Offering up classic notes of strawberries, spice, black cherries and a touch of sous bois, it has medium to full-bodied richness, terrific purity of fruit and integrated acidity. Give bottles a year or two and drink through 2026. While the majority of 2014s are charming and supple, that’s certainly not the case with these latest releases from Kevin Harvey. I found all of his 20 ...

2014 Ramey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is classic Ramey Cabernet all the way. Blackberries, currants, scorched earth, and charcoal aromatics, medium to full body, great elegance, and notable concentration all make for a top notch 2014 that can be drunk today or cellared for 10-15 years. The blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 6% Malbec, and 3% Petit Verdot, and it’s made in decent enough quantities that it should be easy to find."

2002 York Creek Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

After the last few years just about everyone has heard us pontificating about just how good, and how insanely inexpensive, the York Creek wines are. Luckily for us and our thirsty customers Fritz Maytag kept deep cellars over the years and still has plenty of wine for us to sell. After the rousing success of past vintages we just keep reloading because the wines are that good and you keep asking us for more. Maytag (Of Anchor Steam beer fame) has farmed the property since 1968, selling grapes from his 125-acre mountain vineyard to many outstanding names ...

1997 York Creek "Meritage" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend (1.5L)

This elegant, balanced claret from an outstanding vintage has been perfectly aged in York Creek's cellars. The nose offers compelling scents of cherry liquor, cedar and damp earth.

This is very fresh and alive with an overall sense of finesse and proportion, and a subtle but persistent finish showing very fine tannins. Cathy Corison fashioned this for those who favor harmony and balance over sheer power. 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 14% ...

The meaty character seems to emanate out of the tannins, which fill out the wine’s supple texture and last, along with the rose-scented fruit. A savory red, to serve with roast game."

94 points Wine Spectator: "Intense and beefy, packed with savory, iron and plum aromas and flavors, this meaty red is backed by a layer of granular tannins. Vivid acidity drives the long finish. Best from 2022 through 2038 - B.S." (04/2019) K&L Notes: With his most recent visit to the estate after a recent change of leadership, Antonio Galloni noted that "things seem to be very much on track at Vecchie Terre di Montefili, one of the most fascinating estates in all of Tuscany."

2017 Bosquet des Papes "Chante le Merle" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was blown away by the prodigious fruit in the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Chante le Merle Vieilles Vignes. Quantities are only maybe half of the 2016, so you can imagine how concentrated and rich this baby is. Waves of raspberry and cherry fruit are seductive on the nose, then crash over the palate with a tsunami of concentration and power. If time in the cellar can coax some additional elegance out of the wine, it could be a candidate for perfection. At Bosquet des Papes, I tasted with the larger-than-life, ...

2013 Williams Selyem Sonoma County Pinot Noir

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Pinot Noir of this quality priced at $40.00 or less is a rare find these days, and it serves as an important reminder that not every high-achieving effort necessarily comes with a single-vineyard designation.

Still, for all of its tempting immediacy, it has the depth and tight structure of a serious wine sure to repay aging, and, while we would not refuse a glass ...

2014 Epoch "Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Tempranillo

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A total 'Wow Wine!', the 2014 Tempranillo is a huge, smoking good, rich and concentrated red that has loads of smoked earth, cedar, cured meat, blackcurrants, violets and licorice aromas and flavors. This smoky, rich, mineral-laced Tempranillo is a candidate for the top expression of the variety in the United States (I should put this up against Cayuse’s Impulsivo cuvée) and it has Full-bodied richness, beautifully concentrated, notable freshness and a great finish. I followed this bottle for three days, and it never showed a hint ...

2011 Turley "Salvador" Contra Costa County Zinfandel

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red with ruby highlights. Sappy, sophisticated nose hints at black raspberry and licorice. Intensely flavored and aromatically pure, with the raspberry flavors given a distinctly savory quality by strong peppery acidity. With a relatively low pH of 3.5, this offers a lovely light touch in spite of its serious density. Finishes perfumed and long, with suave, lightly peppery tannins. Built for aging. (ST) 92+" (05/2013) 92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Zinfandel Salvador Vineyard is gorgeous. ...
