CHAMPAGNE BRUT ROSE‘ 2010 by LOUIS ROEDERER in CHAMPAGNE, FRANCE $65.99 BTL.
"Roederer invested in a separate winery to produce it’s rosé, the facility completed in 2007, taking its classic saignée method wines to a new level. An estate-grown blend of 62% pinot noir from the clay soils of Cumières with 38% chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs, this is an extraordinary vintage of Roederer Rosé. It’s a lithe wine, compelling for its precision rather than for any stylized complexity. In fact, it feels simple, naked, capturing the freshness of the grapes in pale pink energy. Transparent cherry and Honeycrisp apple flavors are inherently balanced and hard to resist." 96 points Wine & Spirits
HAUT-MEDOC ROUGE 2005 by CHATEAU CITRAN in BORDEAUX, FRANCE $39.99 BTL
“This Cabernet blend has a deep, firm colour which doesn't betray the decade or so that this wine has been maturing. In fact to all intents and purposes the wine is positively sprightly. Impressive on the nose showing delicate ripeness of fruit character balancing the tertiary notes shining through. Good concentration, polished Cassis and Plum fruit and bristling acidity makes the wine eminently drinkable.” 94 Points Wine Enthusiast
MERITAGE "ARTIST SERIES" 2007 by CHATEAU STE MICHELLE in WASHINGTON $59.99 BTL
Artist Series is the ultimate sculpted wine created by blending amazing Washington fruit. Drawing from our estate vineyards, Canoe Ridge Estate gives elegance, structure and fine-grained tannins while Cold Creek vineyard lends concentrated, old vine intensity. This year, we also included grapes from Indian Wells Vineyard for a touch of that "New World" opulence. The 2007 vintage delivered power yet seamless tannins. The blend is 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 6% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot. We discovered a forgotten backstock of incredible 2007 vintage, so buy now and enjoy this ready to drink powerhouse. 90 points Robert Parker
LA SERRE NUOVE 2013 by DELL'ORNELLAIA in TUSCANY, ITALY $74.99 BTL
"I have always been a big fan of this wine. The 2013 Bolgheri Rosso Le Serre Nuove is a generous blend of Merlot (32%), Cabernet Sauvignon (36%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Petit Verdot (12%). The wine presents an intensely drinkable style with soft fruit nuances of cherry, spice, grilled herb and leather. The integration of those aromas is absolutely seamless. In the mouth, Le Serra Nuove is soft, lush and beautifully persistent. " 92 points Robert Parker
NUITS ST. GEORGES 2012 by DOMAINE FAIVELEY in BURGUNDY, FRANCE $79.99 BTL
This classic Pinot Noir from one of Burgundy’s best communes. It is elegant, concentrated, with a spicy, earth tinged finish that long term cellaring will only enhance. 91pts Wine Spectator
