NEW LOWER PRICE!

2007
Dal Forno Romano
Valpolicella Superiore
Veneto

"Rich and smoky in flavor, yet graceful in form, with supple tannins and muscle structuring the flavors of dried cherry, bresaola, grilled marjoram, date and mesquite smoke, followed by a long, chewy finish. Drink now through 2018. 550 cases imported. -AN" (WS)
Wine Spectator: 91 pts.
"The 2007 Valpolicella Superiore from the celebrated Monte Lodoletta vineyard is rock-tight with a midnight black appearance and aromas that emerge with fierce determination. The fascinating aromatic medley includes dark spice, prune, Spanish cedar, tar, black licorice, balsam herb and blackberry tart. The mouthfeel is plush and rich with super-tight tannins that grip nervously to the finish. It has only started its bottle evolution and requires more time to soften and develop. Drink 2017-2035." (WA)
Wine Advocate: 94 pts.
"Romano Dal Forno applies the same stringent quality standards on his so-called base wine as he does his top-tier Amarone. But referring to this Valpolicella Superiore as a "base wine" couldn't be more incorrect. In fact, this singular expression occupies its very own category in which the utmost attention is paid to the smallest details. It opens with dark, inky concentration and amazing intensity, with black cherry, barbecue spice, leather and tobacco. -(11/1/2012) -93" (WE)
Wine Enthusiast: 93 pts.
"Dal Forno's 2007 Valpolicella Superiore is a huge, opulent wine bursting with black fruit, bittersweet chocolate, mocha and sweet spices. The Valpolicella is usually quite tannic when young, but the 2007 stands apart from most other vintages because of its incredible silkiness. Initially quite full-throttled and intense, with time in the glass, the 2007 becomes more delicate and restrained in style. This is one of the most sensual, approachable young wines I have ever tasted from Romano Dal Forno, and that is a very good thing, as these reds are almost always impossible to enjoy when young. In 2007 there is no Amarone, so Dal Forno fans will want to check out this delicious Valpolicella. As a reminder, since 2002 the Valpolicella here has been made entirely from dried fruit, although the drying time is less than that used for the Amarone." (VM)

Alexandra Grande Cuvee Rose
Brut
Champagne

"Fresh and minerally, this elegant rosé offers a finely detailed bead carrying a subtle range of white raspberry, biscuit, slivered almond and lemon peel notes, with a long, spiced finish. Drink now through 2027. 20 cases imported. –AN" (WS)
Wine Spectator: 93 pts.
"(80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay): Light, bright orange-pink. High-pitched red berry, orange zest and floral scents are underscored by an intense mineral nuance. Taut, linear and strikingly pure, offering deeply concentrated redcurrant and strawberry scents and hints of allspice, smoky lees and jasmine. Powerful yet lithe rose with superb finishing power, focus and mineral-driven persistence." (IWC)
Vinous Media: 94 pts.
"First produced in the 1987 vintage to celebrate the marriage of owner Bernard de Nonancourt's eldest daughter, this bottling is now mature. Ripe, it still retains plenty of red fruits while also allowing the toasty character to show through. It's a rosé that calls for food, a rich and balanced wine that is just perfect to drink now. -R.V. (12/1/2014)" (WE)
Wine Enthusiast: 95 pts.

Seghesio
Zinfandel
Old Vine
Sonoma County

"A winning combination of rustic richness and sleek balance. Aromas of briary wild berry and spicy mocha lead to dense, layered flavors of black cherry, grilled anise and pepper. Drink now through 2022. 11,242 cases made. -TF" (WS)
Wine Spectator: 93 pts.
"The 2012 Zinfandel Old Vine comes from vines that are at least 50-years-old. It offers oodles of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit along with spice box, pepper and fruitcake notes. Full-bodied, heady and complex, it is the most multidimensional of these 2012 Zinfandels. It is ideal for drinking over the next 4-5 years." (WA)

teso NEW ARRIVAL!!
2012
Bodegas Teso la Monja
Romanico
Toro

"The 2012 Romanico (1,500 cases produced) is made from 100% Tinta de Toro (the local name for Tempranillo), and is aged for six months in a combination of new and used French oak. Malolactic is done in oak, and the result is full-bodied, opaque purple-colored wine with superb richness as well as lots of blackberry, charcoal and cassis intermixed with licorice, new saddle leather, pepper and bouquet garni. This nearly viscous red should drink beautifully for 7-10 years. This large estate in Toro is owned by the Eguren family, who also owns the Dominio de Eguren winery. These two value-priced cuvées, primarily fashioned from old vines planted between 1880 and 1999, are from head-pruned vines. They represent impressive quality." (WA)
Wine Advocate: 92 pts.
"went through malolactic fermentation and six months of aging in all new French oak): Brilliant ruby. Expansive, highly perfumed aromas of black and blue fruits, allspice, vanilla and woodsmoke. Spicy and seamless on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry and cherry compote flavors given bite by a suggestion of black pepper. A sexy floral note comes up on the finish, which hangs on with excellent focus and persistence." (IWC)

NEW RELEASE!
2010
Pierre Usseglio
Chateauneuf-du-Pape
Reserve des Deux Freres
Rhone

"This is special, with a very deep well of plum, fig, cassis and blackberry fruit seamlessly melded together and a nearly endless finish inlaid with Lapsang souchong tea, melted licorice snap and Turkish coffee notes. Stays very poised despite its immense weight. Hard to resist now, but it's not going anywhere anytime soon. Best from 2013 through 2030. 350 cases made. -JM" (WS)
Wine Spectator: 97 pts.

"The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres is composed of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, and came in at 15.5% alcohol. In most vintages, this is basically the same cuvee as the Mon Aieul but with more press wine and the use of small new oak casks for aging the Syrah component. Approximately 30% stems were used in the fermentation. The 2010 is closed and nearly inaccessible at present. Full-bodied and massive with an inky/purple color, it reveals notes of smoked meats, blackberries, blueberries, flowers and subtle toast in the background. An enormous unctuosity and viscosity give the wine a palate gripping mouthfeel as the tannins are coated with glycerin. This brilliant wine needs at least 5-7 years of cellaring, and should keep for three decades thereafter." (WA)
Wine Advocate: 96+ pts
"Inky ruby. Assertive scents of black and blue fruit liqueur and incense show lovely clarity and take on spicecake and cola qualities with air. Lush, palate-coating blueberry and cassis flavors are braced by juicy acidity and pick up energy in the glass. Rich, vibrant and precise, finishing on a suave floral pastille note, with mounting tannins and superb clarity and length." (IWC)

envero WHAT A BARGAIN!
2012
Apaltagua
Carmenere
Envero
Colchagua Valley

"The 2012 Envero Carmenere is a fruit-driven, bright, fresh and straightforward version of Carmenere, with ripe aromas but a peppery twist and some notes of black pepper and cayenne that make it savory and attractive. A very pleasant Carmenere. Drink now. Apaltagua is owned by American businessman Eduardo Tuyan, who fell in love with the vineyards of Colchagua. He owns about 400 hectares of vineyards in Maipo Alto, San Antonio, Colchagua (Apalta), Curico and Maule." (WA)
Wine Advocate: 90 pts.
"93 points! 2012 Apaltagua Envero Carmenere: "This is a top carmenere with blueberries, minerals, slate and hints of sandalwood aromas and flavors. Full body, integrated tannins and a long finish. A beautiful wine. Drink now." (JS)
James Suckling: 93 pts.
Made of Carmenere and a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon, Envero's dark, rich fruit is complemented by eight months in French oak. All of the fruit comes from the Apalta region of the Colchagua Valley and has been harvested from 50 year-old vines.

Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is laced with an exciting melange of black cherries, incense, tobacco, mocha, graphite and dried flowers. Deceptively medium in body, the 2010 possesses gorgeous aromatics and tons of pure nuance, all in an understated style I find highly appealing. Today, the wine is a bit compact, but it should grow nicely with further time in bottle. The 2010 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 61% from Spring Mountain and 39% from Pope Valley. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025." (WA)
Wine Advocate: 91+ pts.
"To call this Cabernet muscular is an understatement. It's a mixed martial arts wine that kicks butt and takes no prisoners. The fruit is immensely forward and ripe in cherries and currants, and the tannins are as strong as anything out of the valley. Give it until 2020 to begin with. -S.H. (5/1/2014)" (WE)
Wine Enthusiast: 90 pts.
"Tarry and austere on the surface, this is packed with purple berry fruit and purple plum richness. Dusty tannins keep the fruit's generosity in check, finishing tight and coal-black. Built to cellar, this wine's earthiness will develop complexity with age. (2,270 cases)" (W&S)

Brigaldara
Amarone della Valpolicella Classico
Veneto

"The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a thick and delicious interpretation that delivers loads of personality and determination. The bouquet is redolent of dried fruit, prune, cassis, spice, leather, licorice and Teriyaki sauce. The intensity is absolutely irresistible with power and muscle delivered in a silken glove. Round tannins and plush fruit richness gives the wine loads of energy to fuel its long finish." (WA)

carmenet BUY THIS NOW!! RICH, CREAMY, BUTTERY, OAKY!! A TRIPLE WOW AND PICK OF THE DECADE!!!
2013
Carmenet
Chardonnay
California

WINERY NOTES:
With rich characteristics of apple and spice, this lovely opulent wine is made in the style of a traditional Burgundy Chardonnay. Butterscotch and tropical palate, along with vanilla notes from the barrel fermentation. This Chardonnay ends with a smooth, crisp, enjoyable finish.
OUR TASTING NOTES:
Always leery of sugary-sweet bulk-juice efforts at this price range, we were absolutely floored when we tasted this! Here's what we found: Inviting aromas of poached pear and toasty, smoky oak are followed by spice and pear tart, with a touch of lemon curd and vanilla. More creamy than buttery, there's a caramelized aspect to the oak and a pleasant crispness. Deftly balanced with underlying complexity and finesse. Finishes strong, with lip-smacking anticipation of the next sip.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

A PRICE NOT SEEN IN YEARS!

N.V.
Deutz
Brut Classic
Champagne

"Firm and focused, with a mouthwatering palate of poached pear and berry, lemon curd, pastry cream and a pronounced streak of smoky minerality that lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 300,000 cases made. –AN" (WS)
Wine Spectator: 91 pts.
"Light yellow. Toasty lees, poached pear and lemon rind on the pungent nose. Offers an array of sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and becomes spicier with air. The lemon and lees notes come back on the broad, clear finish." (IWC)
Vinous Media: 90 pts.
The most "classical" of the Deutz cuvees is far from mundane. The three different champagne grapes are blended in equal and unchanging proportions, ensuring it shows perfect harmony. Its golden color scintillates in the glass, with a fine stream of bubbles rising gracefully to the surface. The first impressions on the nose are mellow and reminiscent of acacia flowers, confectionery, Reinette apples and brioche. The wine then gains in volume and its silky texture reveals a successful balance between the freshness of Chardonnay, t he fruitiness and structure of Pinot Noir and a touch of vinosity from the Pinot Meunier.

Anderson's Conn Valley
Right Bank
Proprietary Red
Napa Valley

"The Right Bank (67% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot) has been a perennial winner from this Conn Valley vineyard since it made its debut as Gus Anderson's homage to the Right Bank wines of Pomerol and St.-Emilion. The dense ruby/purple-colored 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Right Bank offers mocha, white chocolate, plum, black cherry and blackcurrant characteristics, medium to full body, and an opulent, round, seductive style. This fleshy, complex red can be drunk young or cellared for 12-15+ years." (WA)
Wine Advocate: 94 pts.
"A big step up from the 2011, the 2012 Right Bank is fleshy, radiant and expressive. Dark red cherry, mocha, plum, smoke, leather and licorice meld together in a supple, open red with lovely mid-palate depth and density. This mid-weight Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. The blend is 67% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot." (AG)

Wine Spectator "The 2011 Kopke has scents of damson, boysenberry jam and crème de cassis.

"($60-$78) Bright golden yellow. Cool, pungent nose offers hints of orange, marzipan, sexy brown spices, parsley, grass and eucalpytus. Sweet, thick and powerful but with its fat fruit flavors cut by strong acidity. At once densely packed and vibrant, finishing with superb lingering sweetness and a mineral element. This needs patience and should evolve slowly." (IWC)

gaudrelle NEW ARRIVAL!
THINK BRUNCH & BEYOND!!

N.V.
Chateau Gaudrelle
Cremant de Loire
Brut

"The two sparkling wines should not be missed. They're both terrific examples of how good sparkling Vouvray can be. Both are 100% Chenin Blanc cuvees. Even better is the slightly richer, more honey and lemon-scented and flavored non-vintage Cremant de Loire. A blend of equal parts Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay aged for a minimum of 18 to 24 months in their cellars before disgorgement, this is a real beauty and a superb wine. Unfortunately, just under 100 cases are imported to the United States. It is amazing how good a value Vouvray has remained despite the fact that it is such a popular wine from Loire. The appellation was founded in 1936 and covers nine villages in the region. You can find sparkling wines at this estate-sec (dry) or demi-sec (basically off-dry, although for most consumers these would be considered dry)-as well as their sweet wines, which vary considerably in their degrees of sweetness and are referred to as moelleux. All four of the following cuvees performed brilliantly in my tasting." (WA)

Chapoutier and Laughton
Cluster M45
Shiraz
Heathcote, Victoria

"Deep garnet-purple, the 2010 Cluster M45 Shiraz has lovely floral and herbal notes wafting over a solid core of youthful blackberries and black cherries with nuances of Chinese five spice and cloves. Great intensity and balance in a rather modest medium-full body with great graininess to the tannins and plenty of freshness. It finishes long. Note that no 2011 Cluster M45 was produced. This illustrious partnership between Michel Chapoutier from France's Rhone region and Ron Laughton of the Heathcote estate, Jasper Hill was founded in 1997 and the project yielded its first vintage in 2003. Formerly called "Cambrian," "Cluster M45" is now the U.S. label for this wine, known as "La Pleiade" elsewhere. It is made from 100% Shiraz from a 20-acre single vineyard just south of Jasper Hill's Georgia's Paddock, which is planted with a 50/50 mix of vines taken from Jasper Hill and Chapoutier's vineyards (imported from France). In December 2014, I visited with Ron Laughton in Heathcote and tasted through a vertical of every vintage made of La Pleiade/Cluster M45." (WA)
