93 Points Wine Spectator Magazine:
"An intense white, with a racy edge to the honeysuckle and chamomile notes accenting the core of star fruit, white peach and anise flavors. Stays fresh through the finish, with a piercing minerality that is atypical for Condrieu. Drink now through 2017. 750 cases made." – JM

PRE-ARRIVAL Item, ETA: End of September.
88-90 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound (2014 Vintage):
"This is also beautifully complex with its airy array of very pretty red berries, spice, earth and discreet violet and lilac wisps. The sleek and intense medium weight flavors possess a polished mouth feel while delivering solid length on the discreetly mineral-driven finale. This is an inviting Gevrey villages that should drink well early on if desired yet reward 5 to 8 years of cellaring too." - (Apr 15, 2016)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, mint and leather are some of the notes that emerge from the 2012 Barbaresco Sorì Paitin. The Sorì Paitin is quite a bit more complex than it was from barrel, largely because the bottled wine is composed of approximately 30% wine that was originally destined for the Vecchie Vigne. As a result, this is one of the few 2012s I tasted that has real upside potential, even if it is relatively approachable today." - Antonio Galloni (August 2015)

94 Points - James Suckling:
"Crazy aromas of Indian spices and fresh herbs with an undertone of ripe plums. Full body, round tannins and rich, delicious palate. Shows so much beauty and length. Needs two ro three years to soften, but already decadent and seductive."- (uesday, November 17, 2015)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Barolo Vigneto Garretti is a dark and brooding wine that has a long way to travel on its evolutionary track. Only at the beginning of its ageing trajectory, this Barolo reveals stern and uncompromising notes of dark fruit, tar, licorice and smoke. The mouthfeel is firmly constructed, tight and crisp. The bouquet is layered and powerful. Give this wine five more years, at a bare minimum, of cellar aging." - Monica Larner (29th Jun 2016)

CASE PRICE = $66.97 per bottle (add 12+ quantity to your basket)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"One of the best-run and now superstar wineries in all of Napa is Cliff Lede. Starting with their 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap, a beautiful example of this AVA, the wine has a dense ruby/purple color, floral notes intermixed with crème de cassis , graphite and forest floor. It is full bodied, but with the elegance, finesse and lightness of being, despite its intensity. The wood is pushed to the background, and the wine is beautifully pure and long. Drink it over the next 20 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Dec 2015)

CASE PRICE = $39.99 per bottle (add 12+ quantity to your basket)
92 Points - International Wine Report:
"The 2013 Chateau Montelena Cabernet is a gorgeous release from this storied Calistoga estate. This is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with 14% Merlot and a touch of Cabernet Franc which spent 14 months in a combination of French and Eastern European oak. As this slowly develops in the glass, the wine begins to yield bright aromas of pipe tobacco, blackberry cobbler, sage and mint. There are rich flavors of cassis, anise, coffee grounds, eucalyptus and black cherries. This possesses a wonderful tannin structure, which suggests that this has the potential to age for years to come. (Best 2017-2030)" - November, 2016 (OB)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark, fleshy and seductive, but also light on its feet and gracious. Black cherry, plum, rose petal, smoke, tobacco, licorice and cedar are some of the signatures. Classic and medium in body, this tasty Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon will drink well with minimal cellaring. Because of its mid-weight structure, Montelena's Cabernet is one of the more approachable wines of the vintage, not to mention a real beauty."

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Viña Real has now it's own separate winery, but it's still the CVNE brand from Rioja Alavesa. The 2011 Viña Real Crianza, mostly Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano fermented in stainless steel, matured in barrel for a little more than one year before bottling. The wine is racked every 5-6 months. It has a very ripe nose with hints of raisins, plenty of plums and black cherries, a little decadent and baroque. The palate is ripe and tasty with balsamic, Mediterranean flavors that are round, lush and approachable. 900,000 bottles produced." - Luis Gutiérrez (29th Apr 2015)
