  1. Antinori Solaia
    Antinori Solaia

    2009 / 750 ml. | Item#35062

    RP96+96+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Jun 2012
    The 2009 Solaia is one of the clear standouts of the vintage. Freshly cut flowers, raspberries, spices, mint and licorice burst from the glass as this fabulous, viscerally thrilling wine shows off its pure class. Today the oak is a bit prominent, but that won’t be an issue by the time the wine is ready to drink. In one of my blind tastings, the 2009 Solaia was flat-out great. There is no shortage of pedigree here. The 2009 has calmed down a little from its youth, when it was a much more exuberant wine, and has now begun to close down in bottle. Solaia is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc from a single parcel within the Antinori family’s Tignanello vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2019–2029.
    SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2013
    A pretty red, boasting floral, cherry, black currant, chocolate and spice aromas and flavors. The firm structure is assertive now, both acidity and tannins, but the sweet fruit and spice flavors persist and grace the long finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2015 through 2030. 500 cases made.
    ST93+93+ pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Sep/Oct 2012
    Deep ruby-red. Pungent, brooding aromas of cassis, blackberry jelly, licorice, clove, bay leaf and violet; very aromatic and very cabernet sauvignon. Dense, highly concentrated and seamless, with good verve thanks to harmonious acidity that lifts the dark fruit and aromatic cedar flavors. Finishes with superripe, fine, toothcoating tannins, a hint of alcoholic warmth and great persistence. A very aromatic, tactile and smooth Solaia, in a slightly warmer style owing to the hot vintage but with a refinement lacking in the Tignanello of the same year; you can tell the grapes come from a select portion of vines within the Tignanello vineyard. This ought to develop splendidly in bottle and has great potential.

  2. Bevan Cellars Sugarloaf Mountain
    Bevan Cellars Sugarloaf Mountain

    Oscar
    2010 / 750 ml. | Item#26019

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Dec 2012
    The 2010 Proprietary Red Oscar Sugar Loaf Mountain is notably sweeter, richer and more powerful than the Impetus, Bevan’s other Merlot/Cabernet Franc blend. Chocolate, sweet spices, cloves, black berries and plums all jump from the glass in this full-bodied wine. The 2010 is full-throttle, intense and unapologetically opulent, but it all works, and beautifully. I expect the 2010 to give years of sheer pleasure once it recovers from its current slightly shut down stage. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2025.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2013
    A tease of creamy oak takes the edge off the gripping tannins while the persistent flavors hold focus. Ruggedly built. Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2015 through 2026.

  3. Casa Piena Cabernet Sauvignon
    Casa Piena Cabernet Sauvignon

    Estate Grown
    2009 / 750 ml. | Item#36263

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2013
    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon displays a slightly more structured, more reserved, austere style. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by scents of white chocolate, black currants and spicy oak in a medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic style. Drink it over the next 15 years. Both of these wines come from a vineyard in the Yountville AVA not far from the Kapcsandy estate.
    SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2012
    A muscular red that’s rich and dense, with layers of dark fruit, currant, blackberry, loamy earth and cedar. Should only get better and better. Best from 2014 through 2026. 525 cases made.

  4. Château Pavie Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
    Château Pavie Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

    2005 / 750 ml. | Item#26803

    SP100100 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2008
    I love the purity of fruit in this wine, with perfectly ripe blackberry, blueberry and raspberry on the nose. Complex and full-bodied, with hints of new oak and wonderfully polished tannins that caress the palate. Long, long finish. This is not the blockbuster it was from barrel, but rather a complete, balanced and gorgeous red. Best after 2015.
    RP98+98+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Apr 2008
    Now that the 2005 Pavie is in the bottle, I would place it, qualitatively, a notch below the prodigious 2000, and a few notches above the blockbuster 2003. There are 7,000 cases of this 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Disregarding the blatant jealousy of his success as well as his “outsider” status, proprietor Gerard Perse has pushed the envelope of quality, fashioning first-growth quality wines from one of Bordeaux’s finest terroirs. In St.-Emilion, only Ausone can be considered to have greater potential in terms of micro-climate and terroir. Pavie’s 2005 exhibits a thick-looking purple color to the rim as well as an exquisite perfume of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, unsmoked cigar tobacco, crushed rocks, damp earth, and hints of truffles and incense. The vineyard’s limestone soils have provided massive concentration, a laser-like precision, fresh, zesty acidity, and massive tannin. Despite the wine’s enormous concentration and intensity, there is a lightness to its style. As Perse has made clear, he is trying to produce modern day versions of such great vintages as 1921, 1929, 1945, and 1947, wines that lasted 50 or more years. I do not understand why Perse receives so much criticism. In the blind tastings of each new vintage conducted by the Grand Jury European, Pavie usually wins against 100 or so other great Bordeaux. As they say, the truth is irrefutable — this is one of the world’s most outstanding wines, and the 2005 Pavie should take its place among the greatest achievements of Bordeaux in the last 50 years. Anticipated maturity: 2020–2060.
    ST9696 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - May/Jun 2008
    Saturated, deep ruby-red. Knockout nose combines blackberry, minerals, crushed rock, truffle, vanillin oak and flowers; showing none of the porty quality of the sample I tried last year. A hugely concentrated essence of wine, offering an incredible combination of sweetness, vibrancy and precision of fruit, thanks to strong acidity and powerful underlying minerality. The chewy tannins are totally buffered by the wine’s material on the explosive back end. This wine has it all! Compared to the Pavie-Decesse, which essentially comes from a single block of old vines on limestone, this wine has clearly benefited by being an assemblage of soil types, with fruit from the foot of the slope contributing texture and richness. The 2005 Pavie should easily last for three or four decades.
    WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 31, 2008
    Sommeliers on our panel described this wine as “a bruiser” and compared its controversial St-Emilion style to Pahlmeyer from California. New oak retains a prominent role in the wine’s aromas after two days of air, while the cassis fruit has a confiture character, dark and candied. It’s a chocolate pleasure, simple and lush on the surface, with tension in the structure to keep it going for years. But some may side with Fiona Morrison, who noted at the en primeur tastings, “The world is full enough of wines like this; one of Bordeaux’s beautiful terroirs does not need to be sacrificed for the sake of modernism.

  5. Jonata El Desafio de Jonata
    Jonata El Desafio de Jonata

    2012 / 750 ml. | Item#41487

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 27th Aug 2015
    Probably the longest-lived wine in the vintage from Santa Barbara, Jonata’s 630-case 2012 El Desafio de Jonata checks in as a blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 15% Petit Verdot and 5% Merlot that saw 80% new French oak. It reveals a masculine, meaty, structured personality as well as rockin’ notes of blackcurrants, wood smoke, lead pencil shavings and crushed rock. Full-bodied, balanced and with building tannic grip, it still shows the suppleness of the vintage, but needs 2–3 years to even start to be drinkable. It will have 2–3 decades of longevity.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2015
    The Cabernet Sauvignon-based 2012 El Desafio de Jonata graces the palate with its sensual personality. Raspberry jam, pomegranate, leather, smoke, spice and tobacco all blossom in the glass. Big, rich and inviting, the 2012 boasts superb intensity and resonance, although it doesn’t quite have the visceral thrill of the very best wines in this range. Shades of rose petal and mint add the closing shades of nuance. The 2012 was aged in French oak, 80% new.

  6. Joseph Phelps Insignia
    Joseph Phelps Insignia

    2012 / 750 ml. | Item#41008

    RP96+96–100 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2014
    Joseph Phelps’ flagship wines include the incredibly ageworthy Insignia. The 2012 Insignia Proprietary Red is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc, all aged 24 months in 100% new French oak. The vintage was of such high quality and quantity that 17,500 cases were produced. A magnificent Insignia that will be bottled in several months, it boasts an opaque purple color as well as fabulous notes of graphite, blackberries, blackcurrant liqueur, camphor, barbecue smoke and spice box. Rich, full-bodied and opulent with plenty of tannin and structure lurking beneath the extravagant generosity of fruit, this stunning 2012 should drink well for 25–30+ years.
    VN9696 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2015
    Just bottled, the 2012 Insignia is rich, voluptuous and racy to the core. Raspberry jam, mocha, wild flowers, spices and espresso are laced together in a sensual, enveloping Insignia that should drink well with minimal cellaring. I imagine the 2012 will reward readers with a long drinking window of pure pleasure. Today, it is a total knock-out.
    WE9595 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2015
    In this vintage, the producer’s beloved blend is a commingling of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc. Two years in new French oak give it a youthful, tannic nature around smoky black cherry, burly leather and full-bodied richness and concentration. Further time in the bottle should coax out the blackberry and cherry; cellar through 2027.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2015
    Packs a wallop, perhaps overly so, with extracted dark berry flavors and tannic muscle. The drying sensation on the finish distracts from the ripe blackberry, earth, cedar and gravel notes. Aromas of cassis, currant and blackberry offer more promise. Either way, this is built to cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2017 through 2030. 15,000 cases made.
    WS9292 pts. - Wine & Spirits - October 1, 2015
    This vintage of Insignia is 75 percent cabernet sauvignon, 10 percent each merlot and petit verdot, with the balance in malbec and franc. It’s Phelps’s most ambitious red, wearing its oak aging like a thick velvet curtain, but one that pulls aside to reveal deeply saturated flavors of plum, black cherry, cedar and tobacco. There’s some delicacy to the wine, apparent in a hint of lavender and rose, carried along on a gracious finish. A great vintage of Insignia, worthy of long aging in a cool cellar.

  7. Paolo Scavino Rocche dell’Annunziata Barolo Riserva
    Paolo Scavino Rocche dell’Annunziata Barolo Riserva

    2008 / 750 ml. | Item#38706

    RP95+95+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 25th Jun 2014
    From a parcel purchased in 1990 with old vines, the 2008 Barolo Riserva Rocche dell’Annunziata shows a budding sense of maturity and profound beauty. The color is bright and vibrant with brilliant ruby and garnet highlights. The mouthfeel is silky, tight and extremely fine. The wine is dinking beautifully right now and shows the untapped potential of the often-overlooked 2008 vintage. Wines from La Morra usually offer sweeter tannins, and you can feel that here. Drink: 2016–2028.
    ST9595 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2013
    Very bright, full red. Knockout nose combines fresh black cherry, red berries, fruits, minerals, licorice and flowers; reminded me of a darker style of Chambolle-Musigny. Silky, lush and seamless on the palate, with the black cherry and mineral flavors already showing considerable appeal. The tannins arrive very late, allowing this full, broad wine to linger impressively and really perfume the taste buds. There are about 250 cases of this beauty.
    SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2015
    Marked by beautiful fruit and alluring aromas of black cherry, black currant, violet, spice, tar and tobacco, this holds plenty in reserve. The tannins are dense and assertive, though the lasting impression is one of sweet fruit and elegance. Fine length. Best from 2017 through 2033. 248 cases made.

    To Kalon Vineyard
    2012 / 750 ml. | Item#41001

    SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2015
    An iron fist in a velvet glove, this begins with a supple, rich core of currant, black cherry, anise and sage, firming up with tannins from oak and grape. Glides along gracefully, never losing the core fruitiness, while the tannins and gravelly earth accents lend the flavors tension and traction. Drink now through 2029. 7,269 cases made.
    VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2014
    A dark, sumptuous beauty, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve To Kalon Vineyard boasts marvelous depth and pure texture. Hints of mocha, espresso, cloves, new leather and menthol wrap around a core of dark, pliant fruit. The 2012 has just been bottled, but it is already hugely expressive. In particular, the addition of 7% Cabernet Franc is quite noticeable in the wine’s super-expressive, resonant aromatics.
    WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2015
    From one of the Napa Valley’s most historically famous sites, this Cab delivers a testament to gamy blackberry and blueberry alongside complex cassis, clove and black licorice. Full bodied and richly concentrated, it’s also soft and well integrated, entirely pleasurable now, with years to go in terms of structure and body. Cellar through 2027 and possibly beyond.
