WA95Size750MLVintage2008SKU14683One of the superstars of the vintage, this classic Montrose is not as showy or opulent as the 2010, 2009 or 2003, but it offers a dense purple color followed by gorgeously sweet black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with loamy, earthy, forest floor notes, a floral component and a long, full-bodied finish. 95pts Wine Advocate (2008)
WA94+Size750MLVintage2008SKU9600Another powerful, big, large-scaled effort, the 2008 exhibits an inky/purple color as well as sweet creme de cassis, blackberry, plum, Asian spice, licorice and incense notes. Layered and full-bodied with stunning purity and a 40+ second finish, this beauty needs 3-5 years of bottle age and should keep for 25-30 years. 94+pts Wine Advocate (2008)
Size750MLVintageNVSKU631Big and rich bitter chocolate, honey and almond character, medium body and sweetness and long, nutty finish. Slightly clumsy. Massive for a 30 yr Tawny Port.
WA95Size750MLVintage2009SKU16323There are 535 cases of the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Croix de Bois (100% Grenache from 110-year-old vines planted on the famed small rocks called Galets Roules). It is a classic Chateauneuf with lots of roasted herb, licorice, cedar, resiny pine forest, kirsch liqueur and black raspberry characteristics. 95pts Wine Advocate (2009)
WA91/93Size750MLVintage2012SKU18914Gorgeous Grenache character with white pepper, green herbs and pine-like notes that are grounded by a superb core of fruit. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully fresh and elegant, it should be an outstanding bottle of wine with 12-15 years of longevity. WA-91/93
Size750MLVintage2001SKU4185A fine, bright minerality runs through this white peach, apricot and honeysuckle-filled white. Creamy, with a macadamia nut note on the finish. Wine Spectator
Size750MLVintage2004SKU6931Pale yellow. Intensely mineral aromas of mirabelle, peach and melon, underscored by exotic spices. Explosively sweet but with a firm frame of acidity providing restraint and focus; the ripe fruit flavors take on notes of dried flowers and honey.
Size750MLVintage2011SKU17647This features a somewhat more elegant structure than what I've come to expect from this offering. It possesses superior concentration and volume as well as excellent vibrancy and balance on the very well-balanced finsh. This is going to surprise more than a few after ten years or so, and it will require that much aging.
Size750MLVintage2012SKU20207The 2012 old vine Nuits AC shows a lovely, complex and very red fruity nose of cherries, strawberries, nutskins, a fine base of soil and a deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very elegant, with a core of red fruit and excellent length and grip on the moderately tannic finish. A very high class villages! John Gilman
Size750MLVintage2006SKU9532Haunting nose that is a more mysterious and minerally rendition of Viognier than most. Intense,dense and complex. Very long and satisfying. Really intellectual and intriguing. Finishes dry. Lightly honeyed but finishes savoury. " 18/20 points Jancis Robinson (2006)
WS97 pointsSize750MLVintage2011SKU19772Vibrant, with luscious yet elegant mineral-infused flavors of dark currant, ripe cherry, green fig and raspberry. Shows ample pepper notes, with the tannins offering plenty of muscle and grip on the long, silky finish. Complex and restrained.
Size750MLVintage2009SKU16942This shows an expressive nose that offers up notes of plum, cassis and very ripe black berry liqueur notes. The attractively textured and very rich flavors are supple, round and supported by relatively fine tannins and plenty of mouth coating dry extract. I like the balance and overall sense of harmony of this seductively textured example. Outstanding! Allen Meadows -Burghound (2009)
Size750MLVintage2013SKU21879With a superb pale yellow colour, this shows an intense and complex nose of grilled almond with lightly smoked notes. Aromas of almond paste blends with flinty notes. The mouth is powerful, generous and frank. We also find grilled notes and fresh almond aromas. Very beautiful length, with nice minerality.
Size750MLVintage2012SKU21877This relatively young Burg is approaching maturity and is already a joy to drink with a fabulous depth of (almost autumnal) flavors, fine balance and admirable complexity. And it will only get better! A rare Grand Cru Burgundy bargain!

IWC92ptsSize750MLVintage2011SKU19931There is impressive richness to the broad-shouldered yet refined and elegant medium-bodied flavors that brim with plenty of palate coating dry extract. Despite the succulence of the mid-palate there is excellent delineation on the citrus-infused, intense and moderately dry finish. 92pts Allen Meadows - Burghound (2011) Sweet spot Outstanding
SizeEACHVintage2006SKU18982Shows plum and raspberry aromas, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and pretty fruit on the middle palate. All there in balance and finesse.
Size750MLVintage2006SKU20967This Chardonnay dominant Champagne is extra brut, and it was disgorged in December 2013. Very taut and fresh, in a linear style, showing great balance with high acidity. Linear, lemony and pure with amazing presence. Such a beautiful wine, showing lovely clean taut fruit and a slightly salty mineral character.
WA96Size750MLVintage2010SKU18012The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is built from completely different sources. Sixty-six percent came from the St. Helena Home Ranch, 18% from the Chabot Vineyard, and the rest from Beringer's estates in St. Helena, Rutherford and Coombsville. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that came in at 14.6% natural alcohol with a pH of 3.8. Perhaps the greatest Beringer Private Reserve since the 2007, 2005, 2002 and 2001, the 2010 offers up notes of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, subtle smoke, wet rocks and background oak. Full-bodied, rich and impressive, it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades
WA94+Size750MLVintage2006SKU11585The 2006 is extraordinarily elegant and finesse-styled, but it exhibits stunningly concentrated, sweet blackberry and cassis fruit with hints of flowers and minerals. Full-bodied with a savory, expansive mid-palate as well as sweet, noble tannins, this beauty should drink well for 20-25+ years." 94+ Points Wine Advocate
Size750MLVintage2011SKU17648A highly attractive nose combines notes of both red and black cherry with lovely violet and spice nuances. There is excellent volume and a sophisticated mouth feel to the silky weight flavors where the sophistication is enhanced by the impressively fine-grained tannins, all wrapped in a firm but fine finish. Outstanding. 91-93pts Allen Meadows-Burghound (2011)
WA93Size750MLVintage1997SKU3460A young Port, with good, dark color and mineral and raspberry character. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a firm, silky finish. 93pts Wine Advocate (1997)
WA94+Size750MLVintage2007SKU18083Sweet dark cherries, menthol, pine, minerals and flowers are some of the notes that flesh out in the glass. The 2007 is a striking Santo Stefano di Perno loaded with site specific detail but with an extra layer of richness that is the signature of the year. Clean, mineral notes frame the energetic, vibrant finish. 94+pts Wine Advocate (2007)
WA94Size750MLVintage1994SKU2019Sweeter and more obvious than many ports, the opaque purple-colored 1994 is fruity, powerful, and rich, with an addictive hedonistic quality. It will be ready to drink in 8-10 years and keep for up to 30. 96pts Wine Advocate (1994)
