1. Honig Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California 2014 $39.99


“This is direct and charming given the size and density, but the supple texture makes the core of currant, blackberry, graphite and licorice easier to warm up to. Features a tannic backbone alongside a measure of grace and finesse.” -Wine Spectator, 90 Points

“Lots of brambleberry, dark-chocolate and walnut character. Medium to full body, soft and silky tannins with a flavorful finish. Delicious now.” –James Suckling, 90 Points

2. Lucienne Pinot Noir “Lone Oak Vineyard” Santa Lucia Highlands, California 2014 $37.99


“Weaves together an enticing array of supple anise, cedar, blackberry, wild berry and floral scents. Very compelling all around. Long and persistent.” -Wine Spectator, 93 Points

“…a sensational Pinot Noir that’s probably the finest wine I’ve tasted from this estate, which seems to have hit another level recently. Giving up lots of black raspberry, framboise, crushed spice and floral aromas and flavors, it’s medium to full-bodied, has a silky texture, fine tannin and a great finish. There are 600 cases of this beauty out there, and it’s well-worth the effort to track down.” –Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, 94 Points

3. Maison Roche de Bellene, St. Aubin AOC, Burgundy, France 2014 $25.99


“An austere white, this exhibits lemon, floral, spice and stone flavors, matched to a bracing structure. Stays moderately long on the finish.” -Wine Spectator, 90 Points

“The wine is ripe with a fine mix of generous fruits and layers of toast. It is an opulent wine, full of fruitiness and with a crisper side from juicy acidity. Produced from 48-year-old vines, it has some fine concentration that gives the wine extra richness. Drink from 2017.” -Wine Enthusiast Magazine

“The 2014 Saint Aubin Village has an attractive, quite peachy, nectarine-tinged bouquet with good definition. The palate is well balanced with crisp apple and pear notes, not a complex village Cru, but fresh and tensile, with a touch of salinity on the finish. Drink over the next 2-3 years.” -Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

4. Campo al Mare Rosso Bolgheri DOC, Tuscany, Italy 2015 $29.99


“Lush and aromatic, offering ripe plum, floral, spice, and iron aromas and flavors. Vibrant, with a base of firm tannins that is proportionate to all the components. Finishes on the elegant side.” -Wine Spectator, 93 Points

“Silky and savory with chocolate, meat and plum aromas and flavors. Medium-body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Vivid wine for the vintage. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot.” -James Suckling, 92 Points

“The 2015 Chardonnay is reared in a neutral barrel, with no malolactic fermentation. It has a full-on expressive nose of fresh grapefruit, white peaches and clotted cream with hints of fresh ginger and nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied, the spicy citrus fruit explodes in the mouth with tons of energy and a racy backbone, finishing long and savory.” -Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, 92 Points

6. Domaine de Ferrand Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC, Rhone Valley, France 2013 $49.99

8. Domaine Bachalete-Monnot Maranges 1er Cru “La Fussiere” Burgundy, France 2014 $35.99

“…comes from many different old-vine vineyards largely based around three farms in Sonoma planted in 1888, 1896, and 1905. In addition, there is a kitchen-sink blend of other old-vine sites as well. This delicious wine shows terrific fruit, loads of steak tartare, ground pepper, black raspberry and blackberry fruits, licorice, creosote and an Amarone-like character. It is dense, full-bodied, vibrant and energized. Drink it over the next 5-6 years if you can wait that long.” –Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, 90 Points
