2013 Vietti "Castiglione" Barolo
Phenomenal Over-Performing Barolo from Stunning 2013 Vintage
93+ Points
- Robert Parker:
"The 2013 Barolo Castiglione is a terrific success story. This is the estate's bread and butter Barolo. Fruit is sourced throughout the Castiglione Falletto township. The wine is consistent and steady, offering amazing value and quality with each new release. The nose is generous and full. It imparts fresh fruit and dark cherry aromas with tar, smoke and licorice at the back. Evident structure gives the wine a firm backbone and will carry it through the next decade of cellar aging." - Monica Larner (June 30,2017)

93+ Points
- Antonio Galloni:
"The 2013 Barolo Castiglione is rich, powerful and intense, especially for what is the estate's entry-level Barolo. Dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and menthol are all used together. Intense and voluptuous, the Castiglione shows the richer, more intense side of the vintage. Time in the glass helps release the aromatics and the brighter side of Nebbiolo. Quite simply, the 2013 is a super Barolo Castiglione that is starting to close the qualitative gap with the single vineyard Barolos." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2017)

2013 Forman Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Ric Forman Has Made 50+ Vintages!

97+ Points - Antonio Galloni:
"A totally dazzling wine, Ric Forman's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is easily one of the wines of the vintage. Today, the 2013 is dense, powerful and explosive, with fabulous energy and tons of sheer intensity. Graphite, smoke, tobacco and layers of dark-fleshed fruit all open up in the glass. This is the first vintage to incorporate a dollop of Malbec. The 2013 has just been bottled. I will not be surprised at all if it merits a higher rating at some point in the future. Even better from bottle than it was from barrel, Ric Forman's 2013 is a super-classic, old-school Napa Cabernet to treasure for the next three decades. Best of all, Forman's Cabernet is probably the single greatest value in Napa Valley Cabernet." - Antonio Galloni (September 2015)

95 Points - Robert Parker:
"A beautiful wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and the rest tiny proportions of Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Opaque ruby/purple with beautiful blueberry and black raspberry fruit moving toward cassis on the palate, it is plush, medium to full-bodied, well-delineated, juicy and succulent. This is another terrific 2013. This one was aged 22 months in barrel, but 60% was new oak, and it was never fined prior to bottling. It should drink well for 15 or more years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2015)

2012 La Serena Brunello di Montalcino

The 2010 Vintage was #13 WS Top 100 Wine! The Outstanding 2012 Is Expected to be Top #20 This Year!

96 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Enticing from the first aromas of fresh cherry, violet and spice, this supple red is balanced and expressive. Matches an elegant frame with a firm backbone of tannins and lively acidity. Very persistent on the long, detailed aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2036. 2,280 cases made." - BS (Web Only - 2017)

93+ Points - Robert Parker:
"Dark and deep in appearance, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino bears many of the hallmark characteristics of the vintage. Sangiovese produced smaller berries and thicker color extraction in this vintage. This Brunello does indeed show more muscle and brawn, but it does so with an impeccable sense of balance and persistence. I cannot but admire this achievement. The quality of fruit is succulent and rich, and there are many pretty aromas of dark cherry, pressed blackberry, underbrush, cola and licorice to earn your admiration. Its textural fortitude is equally admirable." - Monica Larner (28th Feb 2017)

2010 Palacio del Burgo Rioja Reserva

93 Points & Highly Recommended
- Wine Spectator:
"Plum, blood orange, black olive, toast and mineral notes mingle in this tight, bright red. Juicy acidity keeps this lively, while firm tannins impart focus. Graceful, with good intensity. Drink now through 2025. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,000 cases made." - TM (Dec 15, 2015)

91 Points
- Stephen Tanzer:
"Deep ruby. Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe dark berries, vanilla and mocha. Smooth, broad and sweet, displaying intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors and a repeating vanilla note. Juicy acidity provides focus and lift to the long, sweet, gently tannic finish, with a sexy floral pastille quality lingering." - Josh Raynolds (September 2015)

Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis DOCG 2015
One of the Finest, All-Time Best-Selling Italian Whites
92 Points
- James Suckling:
"This is really dense and rich with green papaya, apple and lemon character. Full body, flavorful and persistent. Gorgeous. One of the best Arneis in memory." (November 22, 2016)

90+ Points
- Robert Parker:
"The Bruno Giacosa 2015 Roero Arneis is a mineral-driven and beautifully fresh white wine that would taste great on a warm summer evening. The wine sports a luminous golden color that seems slightly more intense in this vintage. The bouquet offers citrus, peach, dried sage and crushed oyster shell. In the mouth, the wine is tangy and crisp." - Monica Larner (June 29, 2016)

Abadia Retuerta Seleccion Especial 2012
Stunning Spanish Case-Worthy Red!
93 Points, #12 Top 100
- Wine Spectator:
"A polished texture carries harmonious flavors of black cherry, cola, licorice and mineral in this focused red. Well-integrated tannins and balsamic acidity lend this a balanced structure. Reserved but deep. Drink now through 2022. 31,150 cases made." - TM (Dec. 31, 2016)

93 Points - Robert Parker:
"The entry-level red and largest volume of Abadía Retuerta, the 2012 Selección Especial, is nothing like the initial oaky versions of it you might remember. This is produced as a blend of Tempranillo with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah from the 54 separate plots that they have identified in their 180 hectares of vineyards. This 2012 matured in French (60%) and American (40%) oak barrels for 14 months, a slightly shorter time than in previous vintages. The casks were one third new, one third second use and one third third use. This is the wine that has improved the most, and it's now a fine, elegant wine with restrained power, true to the place where it's born and the vintage when the grapes are harvested. This is the highly recommended wine from the winery. All grapes ripened properly in 2012 and the Cabernet feels very integrated; there are some spicy aromas intermixed with the wild berry aromas, developing some balsamic undertones, licorice and a little bit of toast. It is very subtle and nicely compact. The texture is very fine with dusty tannins, good acidity and freshness. It is long, balanced and supple, with power and elegance. The wine is approachable now and with stuffing to age. It is a great value and highly recommended."

Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape "Cuvee Reservee" 2014

Legendary Yet Affordable Chateauneuf!

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A gutsy style, with a frame of brick dust around a core of steeped cherry, plum and blackberry fruit. The back end pulls in dried sage, savory and tobacco notes. The finish lingers over a singed chestnut hint. Rock-solid and unabashedly old-school. Best from 2020 through 2030. 5,800 cases made." - JM (May 31, 2017)

90 Points - Robert Parker:
"As to the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Réservée, which is already in bottle, it's a medium-bodied, lively and fresh example of this cuvée that offers classic Pégaü notes of cured meats, tapenade, spiced meats and blackcurrant fruits. Clean, complex, with bright acidity and solid concentration, it needs a decant if drinking anytime soon, but should keep for at least a decade." - Jeb Dunnuck (28th Oct 2016)

Isole e Olena Sangiovese Cepparello 2013

The Most Polished & Refind Sangiovese Meets Gorgeous French/American Oak for a Bordeaux/Napa Feel

97 Points - Robert Parker:
"Hands down beautiful, The 2013 Cepparello is a creation of stunning elegance and balance. A pure expression of Sangiovese, this wine undergoes a sophisticated oak regime that sees ageing in various barrel sizes and barrique of various ages. It lives 18 months of its life in French and 3% American oak before being released. This vintage (that is cooler compared to 2012 and 2011) delivers an exceptionally soft and mellow bouquet with slightly sweet sensations of ripe cherry and fragrant blue flower. Soft tones of spice and cinnamon bring up the rear. The wine is medium to full in terms of body weight, and the finish is driven by cool tones of balsam and menthol herb. The 2013 Cepparello is one of my favorite wines of the vintage." - Monica Larner (30th Dec 2016)

96 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2013 Cepparello is superb. Polished, silky nuanced and exceptionally beautiful, the 2013 exudes freshness and energy from start to finish. Succulent red cherry, plum, lavender and rose petal are some of the signatures. Aging in French oak shapes the wine nicely without marking it excessively. The purity of the flavors is striking. This is an especially cool, savory Cepparello built on finesse and persistence rather than power. Rain during harvest robbed the wine of some of its breadth. Otherwise, this is a striking Cepparello. I can't wait to see how it ages." - Antonio Galloni (Oct 2016)

Joseph Drouhin Saint Veran 2015

90 Points, #61 Top 100
- Wine Spectator: (2014 Vintage)
"Though rich, this is offset by vivid acidity, creating a nice tension to the lemon, apple and melon flavors. Long and tangy on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 8,000 cases imported." - BS (Jun 30, 2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2014 Vintage):
"This 2014 Garnacha Old Vines is another custom cuvée from Eric Solomon, made with the proprietor Anna Espelt. Beautiful notes of crushed rock, red and black cherries, pepper and earth all jump from the glass of this lovely, ripe, medium-bodied wine that is quite well-made, pure and attractive. Drink it over the next several years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (30th Jul 2015)
