94pts James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion: "An 80%Grenache/17%Shiraz/3%Mouvedre blend, fermented on skins for 7-10 days, then matured in used French barriques for 12 months. Has good colour; relatively early picking has invested the wine with spicy freshness and vibrant red fruits, way beyond most Barossa Valley blends of these varieties." Reviewed 11/25/2014

2013 Fort Ross FRV Pinot Noir Reg $55 Blitz $34.97 (limited)
94pts WC is elegant and, in its elegance, spectacular. It’s not what one expects from California pinot nor, given the excesses of many of the best selling labels. It somehow combines New World freshness with a little Burgundian complexity, so that each part of the wine complements the other and the whole is greater than the parts. It’s balance where balance is too often lacking. Look for forest floor aromas (not too funky), plus dark red fruit and baking spice flavors, and soft, refined tannins. The tannins, as well as the exquisitely judicious use of oak, might be the most impressive achievements. This is a California pinot noir made to express pinot noir from Fort Ross’ Sonoma terroir instead of making it to get 94 points, the soil and the climate be damned. Highly recommended. Ready to drink now, and probably won’t age for more than several years. Enjoy it with anything pinot noir–related, from roast lamb to salmon. And, given its grace, by itself.
2013 Fort Ross Pinot Noir "Symposium" Fort Ross Vineyard Reg $55 Blitz $34.97 (limited)
92 points WW Showing more density than many Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs, the active, bright, and black-fruited 2013 Fort Ross Symposium exhibits fine and enticing layers on the palate. The wine's deep flavors pair it well with seared lamb chops. (Tasted: August 21, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
2012 Fort Ross "Pinotage" Fort Ross Vineyard Reg $55 Blitz $34.97
While Pinotage shares many traits with Pinot Noir, there is an earthy brambleness that distinguishes this varietal. Captivating aromas of dark fruit, elderberry and cassis are interwoven with hints of mocha, sandalwood and just the slightest hint of gamey notes in the background. This full-bodied, nearly opaque, inky Pinotage has a concentrated depth of luscious bold flavors that envelop the palate with tiers of blackberry, dark plum and blackcurrant with allspice and sassafras all chiming in. The defined dark berried fruit is in complete harmony with the firm tannins, tight acidity and lengthy, composed finish. The textural complexities and intensity pair beautifully with exotic spices, Italian food, as well as smoked and grilled meats. This wine has been patiently cellared until optimal for release. It will continue to benefit from cellaring for years to come.

90pts RP The 2014 Pinot Noir Sea Slopes gets its name from overlooking the Pacific Ocean at an elevation of 1,200 to 1,700 feet. The wine spent nine months in 10% new French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. This wine offers loads of Chinese black tea, pomegranate, floral notes and a hint of raspberry in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively, Côte de Beaune style. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
2016 Sea Slopes Fort Ross Vineyard & Winery • Chardonnay “Sea Slopes” Reg $35 Blitz $19.97
92pts Editors Choice Wine Enthusiast! Brioche and almond flavors meet a sleek, smooth and tightly focused core in this meticulously made white. Apple, pear and lemon meringue provide complexity on the midpalate before finishing crisp and slightly spicy. *Editors’ Choice* (VB)
Sea Slopes Chardonnay is inspired by the majestic Sonoma Coast and the steep rugged ridges perched at the golden edge of the continent. Here, the cool maritime climate produces fruit of exceptional quality and allows Fort Ross to craft wines of great elegance and purity. Bright, crisp acidity intertwines with stony minerality to express the cool coastal climate. Lively aromatics of citrus oil, white peach, and nectarine with a hint of brioche soar from the glass. The full-bodied palate offers layers of apricot, golden plum and lemon tart leading to a refreshing finish that invites another sip!

95points Vinous!! "The 2016 The Big Easy is fabulous. Rich, powerful and flamboyant to its core the Big Easy hits the palate with tremendous fruit intensity. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, white chocolate, vanillin and new American oak shape this opulent Syrah/Petite Sirah/Grenache blend. Winemaker Blair Fox has dialed in a style that captures all the exuberance of past editions, but with more nuance than the Big Easy has ever shown. And I say that as someone who has never loved this wine. The 2016 is simply outrageously delicious." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
With The Big Easy we wanted to pay homage to one of our favorite cities, a culinary mecca and great supporters of our wines, New Orleans. This well-structured blend has the same characteristics you have come to expect from The Big Easy, rich dark fruit flavors with a touch of oak, and soft tannins that lead to a long lengthy finish.

2014 Mayacamas Mt. Veeder Chardonnay Reg $54.99 Sale $44.97
96 points Vinous The 2014 Chardonnay is brilliant. Lemon oil, white flowers, mint, almonds and smoke are all beautifully delineated in this transparent, super-finessed Chardonnay built on total finesse. The decision to pick a touch earlier plus the blocked malo style result in a focused, energetic Chardonnay that hits all the right notes. Every time I go to Mayacamas there is something new to see. The redevelopment of this historic estate proceeds at what looks like a very rapid pace, even if it will be many years before the results of the work being done today shows up in the wines. Mayacamas is most known for their epic Cabernet Sauvignons, but this year I was equally impressed with the whites, and I say that as someone who has never found the same level of excitement in those wines as I have in the reds. The new team headed by viticulturist Phil Coturri and winemaker Andy Erickson is doing important work in redeveloping the vineyard while keeping the healthier existing vines in production for as long as possible. Many of the improvements are noticeable in the whites already, where the wines tend to be more transparent and susceptible to less than ideal practices. (AG) (9/2015)

2016 Chateau Greysac Blanc Reg $29.99 Sale $24.97
Château Greysac Le Blanc is the special project of proprietor, Jean Guyon. Jean’s goal is to produce the perfect compliment to Château Greysac rouge, Greysac Blanc embodies that spirit. The gold mesmerizing color of its label is a reminder of the brightness of this predominantly sauvignon blanc gem. Perfectly balanced between seducing peach and apricot flavors, subtle hints of violet and a comforting coat of oak, altogether carried by a refreshing aquiline acidity.
Le Blanc de Greysac will delight and refesh your evenings and complement your seafood, fish and white meats with delicacy
The Greysac Blanc is a blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sauvignon Gris. The bouquet is well defined with attractive scents of pineapple, white peach and a touch of hazelnut. There is certainly good vigor in situ. The palate is well balanced with a slightly honeyed entry but the acidity keeps everything balanced and there is a delicate touch of spice on the finish that lends tension. This feels composed and harmonious, marking a debut Médoc white that is worth checking out.
Château Greysac, located in the Médoc hamlet of Begadan, north of St. Estephe, was built in the 1700’s. For many years, the property belonged to the late Baron Francois de Gunzburg. In 1975, the property was sold to the Agnelli family, which transformed the estate and its winemaking capabilities significantly. Château Greysac was purchased by Jean Guyon, owner of Domaine Rollan de By, in 2012, joining their exciting portfolio of Bordeaux wines

COMMENTARY: Can I please have my Chablis and not pay a whopping high price? The 2017 William Fèvre Champs Royaux has fortunately come to the rescue. TASTING NOTES: This wine is bright, clean, and fresh. Its weight and ripe apple, savory spices, and chalk should pair it nicely with sashimi. (Tasted: August 31, 2018, San Francisco, CA) 90pts William Fevre's Champs Royaux Chablis is impressively precise, delivering a nose of citrus fruits, flowers, green apple and flinty flavors of wet stone in the mid-palate with a beautifully clean finish. Fresh, supple, it is marked by mineral notes, typical of the appellation. A perfect accompaniment for shellfish menus, grilled fish, oysters, and sushi - but would also work well with many roast chicken recipes seasoned with fresh herbs such as thyme or tarragon.
2016 Château Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Reg $109.99 Sale $89.97 $499.99/6pk
95 points Jeb Dunnuck Just sensational, and one of the best examples of this cuvée out there, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc boasts phenomenal notes of orange blossom, salty minerality, caramelized peach, and spice. Rich, full-bodied, unctuous and yet always pure and elegant, it’s one of the finest wines coming from this hallowed appellation. (10/2017)
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The family is a great believer in Roussanne as the white grape of the Southern Rhône, and the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc includes 80% of that variety. Waves of honeyed pineapple and tangerine sorbet flood the senses. This is really lush, yet it's underscored by a briny sense of freshness that prolongs and lingers on the finish. It may be drunk young or aged several years.(JC) (10/2017)
Domaine des Baumard
Chenin Blanc at it’s Finest! Limited Rare Baumard! IN Stock
Domaine des Baumard produces some of the finest examples of Savennières, and Jean Baumard and now his son, Florent, are universally regarded as the finest winemakers in the appellation. Their wines are among the most unique and rewarding in the world: honeyed, dry whites of unmatched concentration, perfume, and longevity. Savennières is a tiny region located on the northern banks of the Loire River, just across from the town of Rochefort Sur Loire. The entire appellation consists of fewer than 360 acres of vines, all planted to Chenin Blanc. The South/Southeast facing vineyards are planted on unique soils composed of schistous volcanic debris mixed with sandstone and granite, imparting a strong, intensely original minerality to the Chenin Blanc grape. The average yields for the appellation are well below permitted levels, and actually the lowest of any dry french white wines; the resulting wines have stunning concentration and perfume. The combination of this concentration with the naturally high acidity of the Chenin Blanc grape results in wines capable of lasting and improving for decades.

Named after a vineyard shaped like a butterfly (Papillon). This bone dry Chenin Blanc is a personal favorite!
Domaine des Baumard produces some of the finest examples of Savennières, including the single-vineyard “Clos du Papillon” from a site along the Loire noted for the presence of volcanic rock in its schist soils. The vineyard gets its name from its particular butterfly shape. Florent Baumard owns the eastern “wing” of this famous vineyard, and produces what must be one of the most under-appreciated great white wines in the world. The sheer intensity of the orchard fruit, floral, and earthy minerality notes emerging as the structure of the wine builds – nothing short of thrilling.

Quarts de Chaume Concentrated in its sweetness yet so deft and elegant it simply won’t leave your memory
The sweet wines of Domaine des Baumard are from vineyards planted along the Layon river, which flows northwest into the Loire. The magnificent Quarts de Chaume is a fascinating wine, with a compelling intensity and authority of site which informs each vintage. Always long-lived, in great vintages this wine can be almost immortal, improving for decades. Considered as one of the greatest sweet white wines of the Loire valley, Quarts de Chaume benefits from a unique location and terroir. The wines from this vineyard have an extremely rare elegance, and a remarkable texture that balances out against an equally impressive richness and powerful cleansing acidity. It expresses a precise bouquet of flowers, citrus and quince.

2016 Warre's Vintage Port
98 points Wine Spectator #14 Top 100 2018! Gorgeous, with warm plum reduction and gently steeped raspberry, blackberry and boysenberry fruit flavors forming the core, all inlaid with warm ganache and smoldering tobacco accents. Very plush in feel, but has no lack of energy, as everything sails beautifully through the long finish. A late echo of anise completes the seduction. Best from 2035 through 2055.
98 points Decanter Nearly 50% is made from old field blend vines, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca from the Douro Superior. Very pure violet aromas – already utterly charming with lovely, supple and seamless fruit. Fresh and lithe with fine-grained tannins building in the mouth leading to a peacock’s tail of a finish. A beautiful wine with real poise, definition and great finesse. Don’t be deceived by the early charm, this is a wine that will last. Drinking Window 2030-2055 (RM) (5/2018)
96 points James Suckling Very complex with dried flowers and roses. Full-bodied, very layered and tightly wound. Chewy and powerful. Firm and off-dry. Needs five or six years to soften. Beauty. Try in 2024 (5/2018)
2016 Dow's Vintage Port
98 points Decanter Based on Touriga Franca with Touriga Nacional and Sousão. Tight-knit, with firm, rapier-like tannins on the palate – a ramrod all the way through with the opulence and flesh of the fruit on the finish. Fine-grained with great purity and expression. Leaner and much more restrained in style than others: the drier style of Dow works really well in ripe years such as 2016 (as it did in 2011). Outstanding wine for the long term. (RM) (5/2018)
98 points Vinous The 2016 Dow’s Vintage Port is based around the Vinha dos Ecos vineyard behind Bomfim, populated predominantly by mature Touriga Franca vines that were cropped at just 0.68kg per vine. It has a quite astonishing bouquet with layer upon layer of intense black cherry and cassis fruit, touches of clove, leather and a hint of over-ripe Satsuma. This is a mercurial bouquet that keeps changing in the glass, revealing smoky/burning ember scents with time. The palate is quite magnificent – perfectly balanced with a killer thread of acidity slicing through such pure intense black fruit that there is no heaviness at all. There is a sense of thrust on the finish as it fans out with almost careless abandon, a Vintage Port so self-assured that you can only sit back in amazement. Simply one of the best Dow’s ever made. (NM) (7/2018)
98 points Wine Spectator This packs a lot of fun, with a wallop of blackberry, fig, boysenberry and açai berry compote flavors working together, laced with a mouthwatering licorice snap note and driven by a fresh, well-detailed finish. A roasted apple wood accent is integrated as well, lending textural contrast through the vivacious finish. Best from 2030 through 2055. (JM) (12/2018)
2016 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port 2016
97pts Wine Spectator Densely packed, with lots of warmed fig, mulled blueberry, açai berry and blackberry paste flavors rolling through, scored with graphite and tar notes, carrying through a finish that has a smoldering feel. A long licorice snap echo adds a lip-smacking hint. Best from 2035 through 2055.
96pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2016 Vintage Port is a blend of 43% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca and 17% Alicante Bouschet, with Tinta Amarela and Sousão filling out the rest. It comes in with 115 grams of residual sugar. If this Quinta has a hallmark to me, it is the expressive, gorgeous fruit. It has a seductive feel, but it is also muscular and intense. It is one of the most muscular in the Symington stable this year, with the concentration to soak up the power. I'd give this the nod for the moment over the 2015, but they are pretty close, granting that I do not have them side by side. They may wind up in more or less the same place overall in the long run. We'll see. That said, this seems superb. Bottled in May 2018 and to be released in October 2018, there were 1,220 cases produced.
2016 Quinta do Vesuvio “Capela” Vintage Port
98 Wine Spectator Showy and vibrant, with stunning, pure waves of açai berry, blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry confiture flavors spilling forth, barely harnessed by a mouthwatering anise note and a long briary spine. Just as this nearly teeters from its fruit, this is reined in by terrific drive and cut though through the extremely long finish, thanks to a wellspring of acidity. Best from 2035 through 2060.
97+ Robert Parker Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2016 Capela da Quinta do Vesúvio Vintage Port is principally a field blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão and Alicante Bouschet, coming in with 109 grams of residual sugar. It shows even drier. If the regular Vesuvio was pretty terrific, this is even better. Not quite as lush and sexy, it is tighter, better textured and more intense. Bursting with flavor too, this has rich chocolate-cherry nuances and a long, long finish. This is pretty super, one of my favorite wines in this vintage. Yes, everyone talks about The Stone Terraces (including me; if this isn't my favorite of the vintage so far, The Stone Terraces is). Let's talk more about Vesuvio and Capela, though. The Symingtons struck gold with this Quinta and this bottling. This is unsettled, but it may yet merit an uptick in score. It seems like a superstar in the vintage. Rating: 97+

2013: Brunello di Montalcino Casanova di Neri (White Label) Reg $69.99 Super Sale $49.97
is characterized simply by its white label, to the point where it has now been renamed "White Label" on the American market. This "Etichetta bianca" is born in vineyards that look to Montalcino from the east, at an altitude which varies from 350 to 480 metres above sea level, very close to the cellar. The main characteristics of this wine are elegance, finesse, and longevity. It matures in large, used barrels for about 42-45 months and perfectly represents the estate's desire to express a product distinguished by character and tradition.
94 Points Vinous - Luminous deep red. Captivating aromas of sweet red berries, cinnamon, violet and licorice. Then also very fruity in the mouth; refined, juicy red plum and raspberry flavors linger brightly on the fresh back end. Has a delightful red fruit cocktail quality that makes it practically impossible to put the glass back down. And though it is simply bursting at the seams with early appeal, this truly lovely Brunello will also age well. Unless my memory fails me, this may well be the best entry-level wine from Casanova di Neri that I have ever tasted.
93 Points James Suckling - This is a typical 2013 with a sweetness of fruit and plums. Citrus undertones. Medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a lively finish.
93 Points Wine Advocate - It's that time of year:
get your Neri on. This blockbuster Montalcino estate has released another fantastic collection of new wines, including the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino. Beautifully executed, the wine oozes forth from the glass with round, supple and velvety fruit. This Brunello Annata is luscious and deep, with millefoglie aromatic layering that peels back slowly and carefully. The mouthfeel is less elaborate compared to the estate's top expressions, but the bouquet does much to push this score into the low nineties. Some 80,000 bottles were produced.
93 Points Wine Spectator - This is focused, with a vivid structure driving the cherry, leather, spice and earth flavors. Dusty tannins follow up, while this remains fresh on the lingering finish. Best from 2020 through 2033.
2015 Casanova di Neri “Irrosso” di Casanova di Neri Reg $25.99 Sale $15.97

Spice notes and hints of forest floor and leather add complexity. With such ripe notes on the notes, the mouthfeel is surprisingly structured. The tannins and acidity provide a firm backbone, making this rosso welcome company at your dinner table.
This wine is born from the grapes of the "Cetine" vineyards to the south of Montalcino where our Brunello Tenuta Nuova and our Rosso di Montalcino come from. It is obtained from Sangiovese Grosso and Colorino grapes (the plants are reproductions of old varieties that we found in our oldest vineyards). We tried to produce a wine typical of our land and closely linked to it but with the style and characteristics of Casanova di Neri wines. It can be drunk at once or kept for some years giving even greater satisfaction. selection table for bunches, de-stemming, selection table for individual grapes. Vats filled by gravity.

On the fresh palate, tightly knit, polished tannins carry mouthwatering black cherry, blackberry compote, mocha and cinnamon. Enjoy through 2024. This is one of the wines that has made Allegrini famous throughout the world. The vineyard surrounds Villa della Torre, a splendid masterpiece of Renaissance architecture now owned by the family, and produces a full-bodied red wine that has an ageing potential of at least ten years. The blend is the historic combination of Corvina and Rondinella with the addition of a small quantity of Sangiovese. A small percentage of the harvested grapes are left to dry out until December and then added to the previously vinified fresh grapes. The result is a velvety, well-balanced red wine that proffers mature, pulpy fruit
2016 Allegrini Valpolicella Reg $22.99 Blitz $15.97
90pts WE This is a delicious and inviting red that opens on aromas of ripe dark-skinned berry, baking spice and blue flower. The smooth, juicy palate offers ripe cherry, plum, cinnamon and nutmeg while fresh acidity and supple tannins provide polished support. Drink soon. Editors' Choice Ruby red in color, with purplish-blue highlights, this wine offers up classic qualities of Corvina, the historic grape variety of the appellation. The fragrant nose is filled with red fruit and aromatic herbs, and the wine’s flavors echo the nose, led by prominent notes of cherries with fresh hints of pepper and more herbs. This young wine is distinctly lively and playful on the palate, while maintaining great elegance and finesse.
2016 Renato Ratti Barbera d'Asti Reg $24.99 Blitz $15.97
Wine Spectator 90 points - This red needs air to reveal the pure violet, black cherry and raspberry flavors. Racy and long, with ample structure and a fine finish. Drink now through 2019. 3,500 cases imported. -BS.February/2017
James Suckling 89 points - Fruity, straightforward and chewy with vanilla character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fruit finish Intense red in the glass with a delicious bouquet of ripe fruit hinting at an undercurrent of pepper spices. Flavorful, pleasing and elegant with good persistence. It's a classic Barbera d'Asti with balance between acidity, tannin and persistent aromas, with a good aging potential. A wine suited for important first courses and red meats. Barbera from the Asti region tends to show a bit more acidity compared to Barbera from Alba. In addition to the added freshness, Barbera d'Asti Battaglione also delivers more pronounced body and structure. This is a centered and complete red wine with fruity succulence followed by dark flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and toasted nut. The wine was aged in neutral barrique. These are the hand-me-down barrels that once housed the winery's Barolo.

|Special Washington Buys
2013 Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Washington Reg $59.99 Sale $34.97 (4cs only)
92+pts WA This is a beautiful, expressive, balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackberry, black cherry, and blueberry, characters come together with nice weight and pretty notes of vanilla bean. Hints of cinnamon stick, dark earth, and pine sap add depth and complexity to a proper amount of fruit. This wine has an extra-silky texture on the palate, with refined tannins. The continuity from the nose to the mouth and all the way through the long finish is exactly what Abeja works so hard to create in all of their wines. It has an ideal combination of acid, tannin, and structure for excellent aging potential.
A straight up classic beauty, the 2013 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Abeja is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that was raised in small barrels. It offers loads of cassis, blackberries, earth and hints of leafy herbs in its medium to full-bodied, concentrated and impeccably balanced style. It has the fruit and texture to drink nicely today, yet it should keep for two decades.
Pairs well with a rack of lamb or lamb chops, grill them with a little black pepper and red wine. Linguica stuffed smoked pork loin with black beans pair amazingly with this wine also. The easy go-to meal is a grilled free range beef patty or portabello mushroom with a bit of blue cheese on great bread.
2013 Spring Valley Frederick Estate Red Reg $59.99 Sale $34.97 (5/6pks only)
Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley, Washington This 2013 Frederick is packed with herbal characteristics and summer fruits such as cherries, strawberries, blackberries. The wine is rich with a firm texture. Tannins are abundant but soft and lingering on an impressively long finish.
92+ Healthy dark red--although none of these wines are crystal-clear as they were not fined or filtered. Very dark scents of blackberry, cassis and black cherry suggest a rather muscular wine. Densely packed and tightly wound, with an impression of ripe acidity framing and enlivening the youthful flavors of cassis, blackberry, cocoa powder, mocha and spices. No sign of either greenness or heat here. The tannins spread out horizontally to saturate the palate on the firm, long back end. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2023
2015 Substance (K Vintners) "Powerline Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Sauvignon Reg $49.99 Sale $34.97 (4cs only!)
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Wafting from the glass with notes of rich red and black fruits, cigar tobacco, petroleum jelly and spice, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Powerline Vineyard is the richest, most lavish and velvety bottling in the Wines of Substance portfolio, cutting a broad swath across the palate. Full-bodied, ample and generous, it boasts plenty of savory complexity and concludes with a dry, saline finish. Dramatic and characterful, it's immensely appealing. Sadly, at 239 cases, it's the smallest of all these cuvées too. (WK) (6/2018)
94 points Jeb Dunnuck Coming from mostly 169 and 2 clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Powerline Vineyard offers a deep ruby color as well as complex notes of ripe black cherries, currants, leafy herbs, and tapenade. It's rich, full-bodied, silky, and seamless, with fine, polished tannin and a great finish. Drink this complex, elegant, singular Cabernet over the coming decade or more. In an attempt to simplify the K Vintners lineup, Charles Smith created the Wines of Substance label in 2017 and moved all of the Bordeaux varieties under this umbrella. As with the K Vintners wines, these are terrific wines that more than over deliver at their price point. All of the wines see small batch fermentations, native yeast, aging in barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. (4/2018)
Barrell Bourbon 012 Reg $99.99 Sale $79.97
Vital Stats: 9 years old, 108.5 proof, distilled in Tennessee. 70% corn, 25% rye, 5% malted barley.
Appearance: A medium, somewhat brassy amber.
Nose: A warm prickle greets the nose. There’s vanilla, cherry, banana bread, cornbread, and a bit of dill. It’s somewhat brandy-like, with soft oak, a sweetness that tends more towards honey than caramel, and chalk. Water mutes the corn and fruit, leaving the scent a little one-dimensional.
Palate: Gentle at first, the amplitude builds over time. There’s lots of spice here, more in the realm of black pepper and chili than holiday spice, as well as an interesting fruity acidity. This is a pretty dry bourbon, with a good dollop of oak and salt to cut any sweetness. The finish is long and mineral-driven, with a chalky, vitamin-like aspect. I love the proof: full-flavored, but not unpleasantly hot. The addition of a little water cuts the tannin and brings out some rounded vanilla and coconut tones.
Barrell Whiskey Batch 1 122.5 Proof Reg $69.99 Sale $59.97
Coming in at $60 for a NDP whiskey aged in used bourbon barrels, this certainly isn’t an inexpensive whiskey. You’re getting a blended whiskey from an undisclosed source that looks like it was aged for a few months let alone the 7-8 years it actually spent in the barrel. That being said, there also aren’t that many unique tasting barrel proof whiskeys on the market that offer a manageable amount of low heat along with an approachable flavor profile. Don’t let its incredibly light color fool you, Barrell Whiskey Batch 001 delivers a delicious palate and well rounded finish that will delight your taste buds.
What Barrell Whiskey does deliver is a unique whiskey alternative to the likes of similarly priced barrel proof bourbons. It’s an approachable whiskey that most high proof lovers will enjoy and delivers just enough discerning flavor elements to hold people’s interest while they contemplate what they’re drinking. This is a good first attempt by Barrell Craft Spirits into non-bourbon whiskey, and sets a nice base for them to build off of in the future.
Barrell Rye Whiskey Reg $99.99 Sale $79.97
Barrell brings a solid entrant to the rye whiskey space, offering balance, quality, and a unique flavor profile with their very first batch of rye whiskey.
Barrell has continued to impress me time after time, and this is no exception. While I’m less wowed than I’ve been compared to some of Barrell’s excellent past releases, taking a step back puts this release into perspective. Based on what Barrell has done with their barrel proof bourbons, whiskeys, and even their rum so far, I had hopes of Barrell delivering one of the better ryes I’ve had with this batch. I believe they can do it based on their track record, but realize that placing the target so high for their very first batch of rye was a bit unrealistic on my part. Batch 001 builds off familiar flavors, but offers an end result that tastes different than anything I’ve had. It’s a win for Barrell, and I’m looking forward to the next rye they have to offer

JD93 Jeb Dunnuck The largest production cuvée, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was vinified in tank before being pressed to barrel where it went through malo. Aged 13 months in barrels, its vibrant purple color is followed by a terrific bouquet of blueberries, cassis, scorched earth, and spice. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, this is the real deal, ladies and gentlemen, and it's a no-brainer purchase. Just pretend you paid three times the price.
RP92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Amazingly, there are 125,000 cases of the value-priced 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine offers up classic aromas of crushed cassis, loamy soil and pencil lead. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, layered and flavorful, with chewy but ripe tannins and succulent balancing acids, concluding with good length. Considering the scale of this cuvée and the pittance it commands, it's a remarkable achievement.

Critical Acclaim 92 pts James Suckling I love the perfume and freshness to this with flower and blackberry undertones. Medium body, fine tannins and an underlying firmness and balance. Drink it! A beautiful reddish purple color. The vibrant nose is of red and black cherries and ripe plums that combine with floral touches of violets and rose petals. It holds a nice tannic structure that is full on the palate. Vanilla, chocolate, and some spice appears to make it more complex.
This is a fruit driven, fresh and well-structured wine that pairs great with meats like prosciutto or hard cheeses.

In March of 2014, vintner Nik Weis from Weingut St. Urbans-Hof on the Mosel and Martin Foradori Hofstätter from Tenuta J. Hofstätter in Alto Adige grasped the welcome opportunity to launch their project on the Mosel.
Vinous 92pts(04/01/2018) This wine, nicknamed Steinbock, originates in parts of the Bockstein deemed well-suited to neither Grosses Gewchs nor Kabinett. It’s another instance at this estate of a Riesling that signals stoniness on the nose, in this instance accompanied by a whiff of fusel oil as well as by intimations of apple, pear and lime that go on to dominate a glossy, satiny palate. The hint of sweetness is restrained but supportive, adding to the appeal of a buoyant, bell-clear, brightly persistent and infectiously juicy finish to which a mussel-like combination of maritime salinity and meatiness adds mouthwatering savor. (Incidentally, this harbors 9.3 grams acidity: no deficiency here!)

New! Fresh & Lively!! “2017” Ferrari Carano FUMÉ BLANC
Reg $15.99 “WineStreet Best in class”$12.97
SONOMA COUNTY: One of the first two wines Ferrari‐Carano ever made over 35 years ago, this Fumé Blanc is comprised of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from Sonoma County. This wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from various appellations in Sonoma County — Dry Creek, Alexander and Russian River Valleys. When the grapes arrive at the winery, each lot is gently crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks for 48 hours of cold settling. The juice is either transferred to stainless steel tanks or older French oak barrels for fermentation. The wine in barrels is sur lie aged and stirred every other week for two months, then blended and bottled.
The 2017 season began with much‐needed record rainfall during the winter months, followed by a mild but rainy spring. A warm summer followed, including a scorching hot Labor Day heat spike and unusual rain in September, before it finally cooled off into fall. The first Sauvignon Blanc grapes were picked August 28th and the last grapes on September 28th, making it a very fast harvest, but diligent attention in the vineyards led to the perfect blend of aromas and flavors that we desire in our wines.

D92 Decanter Perhaps the most famous Soave producer, this is the 50th vintage for Nino Pieropan, and is a blend of 85% Garganega and 15% Trebbiano di Soave. The vines are cultivated on clay-basalt volcanic soil, giving flinty aromas on the nose, combined with stone fruit flavours and a long lasting, intense, mineral finish.
TP90 Tasting Panel The Soave from the family’s estate in the Soave Classico zone—and a low ABV of 12%—showcases Nino Pieropan’s 50th vintage and perhaps one of the label’s finest. The aromatics are exceptional, with flint-inspired apricot and lemon curd. The palate is crisp and clean, further enhancing stone fruit and minerality.
