  1. Grand Napa Vineyards Master Red

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#89971

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 13th Dec 2018
    The 2016 Master Red is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 28% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-black in color, it opens with aromas of kirsch, Black Forest cake and blackcurrant cordial with tea and toast plus wafts of herbs and earth. The palate is medium to full-bodied, soft, plush and juicy with a peppery finish.

  2. Red Electric Interurban Pinot Noir

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#94340

    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2019
    Glimmering red. Spice-accented red fruit and rose oil on the nose, along with notes of white pepper, allspice and musky earth. Juicy and focused in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and red berry flavors with a touch of medicinal bitterness. Turns sweeter with air and shows very good energy on the persistent finish, which is firmed by dusty, fine-grained tannins that fold smoothly into the wine’s fruit.

  3. Charles Krug Family Reserve Generations

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#94523

    RP94+94+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Oct 2018
    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Proprietary Red Blend Family Reserve Generations is intensely scented of warm black and red currants, Black Forest cake and blueberry compote with nuances of chocolate mint, new leather, tilled soil and fallen leaves. Full-bodied with a taut frame of grainy tannins supporting the densely packed black fruit layers, it has a long lingering minty kick on the finish.
    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2020
    Features a solid range blackberry paste, fig and plum notes, with cassis bush, bittersweet cocoa and licorice root accents. The solidly grippy finish leaves a hefty impression, but this will have fans. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2029. 2,400 cases made.

  4. Poggio Il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#92944

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is seductive, with its sweet spices and floral tones in a bouquet that gives way to dusty black cherry with grounding notes of worn leather and shaved cedar. Dark, ripe fruits, propelled by vibrant acids, and a mix of cooling minerals, savory spice, and fine tannins settle in. The finish is long and structured, with resonating acids, as ripe red fruits and sweet spices slowly fade under an air of pretty red florals. This is a gorgeous expression that can be enjoyed now but will also perform beautifully over the medium term in the cellar. A wonderful mix of ripeness and structure.

  7. Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#95845

    JD9898 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
    Tasted out of bottle, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape is a stunning example of this estate as well as the vintage. Gorgeous kirsch, flowery incense, spice box, and garrigue-like notes define the nose, and it hits the palate with classic Clos des Papes elegance and finesse backed up by a great mid-palate, fabulous concentration, and a monster of a finish. Don’t miss this beauty. It can be enjoyed today with incredible pleasure or cellared for two decades.
    SP9797 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2021
    This is a stunner, offering a gorgeous core of black tea–infused cassis, plum reduction and raspberry puree flavors. Additional black licorice, black tea and incense notes emerge alongside the fruit on the long, lush, seductive finish, which is harnessed by a graphite frame. A very confidently rendered wine. Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. Best from 2024 through 2040. 10,000 cases made, 700 cases imported.

  8. O’Shaughnessy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#96399

    WE9797 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2021
    This is such an outstanding wine at any price, but here we’re talking about outstanding value as well. Notes of iron and crushed rock lead to a lengthy balance of juicy red fruit and clove. With small amounts of Merlot, Malbec, Saint-Macaire and Cabernet Franc, it shows a deft hand at blending, with lasting notes of black pepper and nuanced oak.
    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2021
    The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a fabulous wine that overdelivers big time. Inky dark fruit, graphite, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice give the 2018 its distinctly savory, soil-driven personality. Time in the glass brings out attractive floral overtones. The tannins need time to soften, but there is a lot to look forward to. This is a very serious, polished wine. O’Shaughnessy’s Napa Valley Cabernet remains one of the hidden jewels in Napa Valley.

  9. Mas Alta Cirerets

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#96234

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Dec 2020
    I just love the elegance and harmony of the 2018 Cirerets despite the 16% alcohol marked on the label. It’s a village wine from La Vilella Alta produced with 60% old Cariñena planted in 1962 (La Veana) and 40% young Garnacha planted in 2002 (Cirerets). It is powerful yet elegant and harmonious with a soft texture, sleek tannins and very pure and penetrating flavors. Really delicious and hedonistic. This is certified organic and biodynamic since 2016. 16,000 bottles. It was bottled in July 2020 and is already very harmonious and has the stuffing and balance for a good development in bottle.
