Dr. Konstantin Frank Dry Riesling

2022 / 750 ml.

Item #: 51647

JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, July 3, 2023
I love the apple blossom and white peach aromas of this racy and very focused dry riesling that is only medium-bodied (12% alcohol), but it is beautifully balanced with a long crisp wet stone finish. The best vintage of this Finger Lakes stalwart in quite a few years! Drink or hold. Screw cap. (Stuart Pigott)

A vibrant perfume of honeyed apple, citrus blossom and peach leap from the glass. Dry but with richness and oodles of fruit and floral flavor, this is an unmistakably Finger Lakes expression that finds balance and tangy freshness right to the end. (Christina Pickard)
WS9191 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 04/23
Scents of lemon and passion fruit have a mildly petrol-like overtone here. The flavors are bright and herbal, fiercely dry, with a mineral grip that’s hunger-inducing for prawns.

La Posta Pizzella Malbec

2021 / 750 ml.

Item #: 51992

JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, May 3, 2022
Blueberries and cherries with walnuts and blackberries, too. Medium body, firm tannins and a creamy texture. Tension and focus. Real malbec character. Excellent price. Sustainable. Drink now. (James Suckling)
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
The 2021 Pizzella Malbec is ripe without excess and shows more black than red fruit, and it’s juicy and velvety, dense and with fine tannins. It has a touch of vanilla that makes it very attractive and pleasant. (Luis Gutiérrez)

Aromatic herbs blend with berries on the inviting nose. The same notes repeat on the palate of this medium-bodied red. The grapes are sourced from Altamira in Uco Valley giving this wine bright acidity and a mineral texture. (Jesica Vargas)
VN8888 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2022
The 2021 Malbec La Posta Pizzella from Tupungato, Uco Valley was 50% aged in used barrels. Purple in hue. The nose presents notes of plum, hints of herbs and aromas from the aging process. Offering good value for money, it’s indulgent and expansive in the mouth with gentle tannins, coming out sweeter than in previous years. (Joaquín Hidalgo)

Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 36297

JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 2/16/2023
The appellation 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is another winner. Ripe red and black fruits, dried flowers, and spice all define the bouquet, and it’s up-front, soft, balanced, and just delicious. Drink bottles over the coming decade. (Jeb Dunnuck)
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2022
Leads with a light cedar edge, followed quickly by relatively open-knit red currant and damson plum fruit flavors. Shows a light savory edge on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 41,000 cases made. (James Molesworth)
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 15th Sep 2022
The winery’s largest bottling, approximately 38,000 cases, is the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley. Primarily from the Hardester Ranch in Pope Valley, with other major contributions from St. Helena, Soda Canyon and Glass Mountain, it’s a medium to full-bodied effort, with bold flavors of cherries, cassis and cedar. It’s easy, but not soft, nicely firm, with a long, silky-textured finish. (Joe Czerwinski)

Rich aromas of ripe black plums and dried flowers follow through to a full, round and juicy palate with well-integrated tannins and a long, balanced finish with persistent fruit and minerals. Delicious now.

WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2021
Light stalkiness from the black-currant flavors of this young wine promise well for the future. With ripeness and a good balance of acidity and texture, this attractive wine is likely to be ready from 2022. (Roger Voss)
