  1. Red Electric Interurban Pinot Noir

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#53792

    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.

  2. Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#35998

    WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2021
    Concentrated and creamy but not overly showy, this wine is balanced, restrained and layered. It meshes an apple-tart flavor with subtle vanilla and nutmeg nuances while underlying acidity achieves excellent balance.
    VN8989 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2021
    The 2019 Chardonnay Vintner’s Reserve is very pretty and floral. Citrus, almond and dried flowers open nicely, followed by tropical notes that grace the finish. In 2019, the Vintner’s Reserve is a bit lighter than it typically is. Even so, it remains one of the greatest — if not the greatest — value in estate wine made in sufficient scale. It can be found pretty much anywhere.
    JD8888 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 7/22/2021
    The larger production 2019 Chardonnay Vintners Reserve is a charmer, with clean citrus and melon fruits as well as a medium-bodied, nicely balanced, juicy, clean, and easy-drinking style on the palate. It’s another solid, well-made wine from this team.

    Côtes de Provence Rosé
    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#54177

    JS9292 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, February 2, 2021
    Very pale apricot-pink color. Delicate aromas of sliced apple, pink grapefruit, peach, cream and stones follow through to a medium body and crisp acidity. Deliciously creamy and smooth. Drink and enjoy.
    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2021
    Brilliant peach skin. Red berries and pit fruits on the nose, and a floral nuance in the background. Silky and open-knit, showing good depth as well as energy to the red currant and nectarine flavors, which pick up a refreshingly bitter orange zest quality on the back half. Finishes long and juicy, with a repeating floral note and subtle grip. Don’t hate on this wine just because it’s popular.

  5. Tolaini Al Passo

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#55623

    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, April 28, 2021
    A beautiful, ripe wine, offering plums and chocolate, as well as tile and walnuts. It’s full and layered with beautiful fruit and caressing tannins. Rock on. Drink in 2022.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2020
    The 2017 Al Passo is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Open-knit and plaint, with soft curves, the 2017 offers tons of immediacy. Cedar, tobacco, dried herbs and macerated cherry all meld together in an inviting, mid-weight Tuscan red to drink over the next decade or so.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 15th Apr 2021
    The Tolaini 2017 Al Passo is always an ambitious wine that takes the best of the grapes in its blend: Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Each give freshness, structure and textural fiber. Al Passo opens to dark berry fruit and plum, with spice, tobacco and tilled earth. This is a well-priced wine that promises lots of pairings, especially out of a Tuscan cookbook.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2021
    A mix of black cherry, black currant, cedar, iron and tobacco flavors grace this taut red. Nicely balanced and vibrant, ends with a long, tobacco- and spice-tinged finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2027. 8,850 cases made, 6,000 cases imported.

  6. Alamos Malbec

    2020 / 750 ml. | Item#69773

    JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, April 8, 2021
    Fresh-plum, blackberry and black-tea aromas. It’s medium-bodied with firm, powdery tannins and a flavorful, creamy finish. Drink now.
    RP90+90+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Mar 2021
    Maybe it was me, but I find the 2020 Malbec to be really excellent, with ripe Malbec fruit, notes of violets and berries and a spicy twist. The palate is round and juicy, nicely textured, with plush tannins and a long finish. Delicious, and a bargain at that price.

  7. Domaine Saint Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#55106

    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
    Shimmering ruby-red. Expressive, smoke- and mineral-accented red fruit and floral scents show fine definition and pick up a spicy accent with air. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering appealingly sweet raspberry, cherry and candied lavender flavors that deepen slowly through the midpalate. Shows solid, spicy thrust on a long, smooth finish framed by velvety tannins. This is an exceptional example of an entry-level Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2021
    Melted licorice, plum sauce, cherry purée and black tea notes all meld into a silky, suave and seamlessly-textured wine that leaves a subtle echo of lavender at the very end. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2032. 8,304 cases made, 692 cases imported.
    JD91+91–93 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 10/6/2020
    Starting with the classic cuvee, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape is a sexy, seamless 2019 that has lots of black raspberry and cherry fruits, loads of peppery garrigue and spice, medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It’s smoking classic cuvée to enjoy over the coming 10–15 years.

  9. Château Tour Saint Christophe

    Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#55578

    JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, April 22, 2021
    Currant, red-tea, chili, chocolate and lemon-zest aromas. Chalk and crushed gravel, too. It’s medium-bodied with tight, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Sleek and tight with crunchy berry, mineral and zesty notes on the finish. Complex. Pretty center palate to this. Extremely polished. Try from 2025.
    JD95+95+ pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/11/2021
    Emerging from a beautiful, terraced vineyard on the eastern side of Saint-Emilion, the 2018 Château Tour Saint Christophe is based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that was brought up in 40% new French oak. Its vivid purple color is followed by a great nose of blackcurrants, blueberries, tobacco leaf, chocolate, violets, and chocolate. Hitting the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, it has this wonderful sense of purity and elegance, a touch of chalky minerality, flawless balance, and a great finish. This beautiful, elegant, seamless Saint-Emilion needs 4–5 years of bottle age but will evolve for 20–25 years. You won’t regret having this in the cellar.
    VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2021
    The 2018 Tour Saint Christophe represents a new level of elegance, precision and finesse for this estate in Saint-Émilion’s Saint-Christophe-des-Bardes district. Silky and exceptionally polished, the 2018 oozes class. Moreover, the heavy extraction and strong torrefaction notes that marked previous vintages of the recent past have been replaced by beautifully precise, vibrant fruit. Tour Saint Christophe is one of best values in Saint-Émilion. I haven’t always loved Tour Saint Christoph, but I love the 2018. It’s a fabulous effort from Technical Director Jérôme Aguirre and his team. Don’t miss it.
    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 22nd Apr 2021
    A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, aged for around 18 months in oak barrels, 40% new, the 2018 Tour Saint Christophe weighs in at 14.6% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple in color, it comes barreling out of the glass with bold notions of baked black cherries, plum preserves and blueberry pie plus underlying suggestions of Christmas cake, Chinese five spice and dusty soil. The full-bodied palate packs in the black and blue fruit preserves layers, framed by velvety tannins and lively acidity, finishing long and spicy.

  10. Élisabeth Chambellan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vielles Vignes

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#55482

    JD9696 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 11/3/2021
    Even better, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Vieilles Vignes Elisabeth Chambellan ranks with the crème de la crème of the vintage. Based on 88% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and the rest Mourvèdre, brought up in a mix of tank and foudre, it has ample red and blue fruits as well as sappy green herbs, garrigue, pepper, and sandalwood. As with the base cuvée, it has a wonderful sense of freshness, medium to full-bodied richness, and a pure, balanced, lengthy style that’s a joy to drink.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021
    Deep ruby-red. Vibrant, spice-tinged red and blue fruit, exotic spice and floral qualities on the perfumed nose. Juicy raspberry, boysenberry and cherry cola flavors show an appealing blend of depth and energy and a spicy flourish on the back half. Closes very long and subtly chewy, with repeating florality and sneaky, well-judged tannins.

  11. Sella & Mosca Cannonau de Sardegna Riserva

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#53381

    VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2021
    The 2018 Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva is a very pretty yet understated effort that slowly comes to life in the glass with a display of fresh roses, cardamom and wild strawberries. This is silky and cool-toned with a pure display of mineral-tinged red and blue fruits, gaining an inner sweetness toward the close. Round tannins mix with residual acids to create a push and pull of tension through the finale, as this tapers off to a flourish of violets and spice. The 2018 is a wonderfully harmonious and pure expression of Cannonau.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2021
    A fresh and elegant red that draws you in with an enticing nose of dried flowers and spices, layering notes of pureed raspberry, dried cherry, wild sage and citrus on the palate, with a subtle streak of salinity and light, supple tannins. Drink now through 2026. 47,000 cases made, 16,000 cases imported.

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#55240

    VN92+92–94 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2020
    The 2019 Chablis “Dessus La Carrière” comes from vines over 50 years old. It has an intense wet limestone and oyster shell bouquet that is beautifully defined and quintessentially Chablis. The palate is vibrant right from the start, slightly chalky in texture, with a killer line of acidity and a surfeit of green apples mixed with crushed stone on the austere but utterly captivating finish. Highly recommended.
    RP91+91+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 5th Aug 2021
    The 2019 Chablis Dessus la Carrière opens in the glass with notions of citrus zest, white flowers, crisp orchard fruit and beeswax. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and chiseled, with lively acids and a long, saline finish, it’s concentrated and structured to age.

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#53492

    Opaque ruby. Deep-pitched scents of ripe black/blue fruits, vanilla and succulent herbs. Plush and open-knit, offering smoke-tinged blackberry cherry, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors complemented by spicy oak tones. Fruit-driven and approachable, finishing with rounded tannins and a touch of cracked pepper.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2021
    Blackberry, loamy soil, incense and roasted meat aromas show on the nose of this bottling. It lands on the palate with clean red fruit and sharp acidity, as waves of pine and smoke ride slightly chunky tannins into the finish.

  14. Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#54005

    JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, December 21, 2020
    This is really beautiful with complex black cherry, berry, walnut and dark chocolate. Some mushroom and smoke. It’s tight and reserved with polished tannins and wonderful balance and finesse. Persistent and intense. Drink after 2025.
    VN96+96+ pts. - Vinous - Nov 2020
    The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino blends richness, ripeness and refinement to create a model of total balance. At first, it’s dark, earthy and herbal; yet with time in the glass, a massive wave of black cherry, raspberry, sage and a grounding note of undergrowth comes forward. In the mouth, it coats all that it touches in silky, cool-toned textures, giving way to ripe red/black fruits complemented by spiced citrus, as nuances of lavender and tobacco form. While this feels round and pliant throughout, fine-grain tannins slowly saturate, sneaking up and reminding you of just how young the 2016 really is today. Hints of baker’s chocolate, licorice and a twang of tart blackberry resonate — wow, does it ever end?
    RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2020
    The Uccelliera 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to dark fruit and wild cherry with warmer tones of cured tobacco, spice and potting soil. It shows the extra density, darkness and richness that comes so beautifully to fruit grown on the sun-drenched southern side of Castelnuovo dell’Abate in the southern half of the appellation. What Uccelliera delivers so carefully, vintage after vintage, is a truly exceptional sense of mouthfeel with textural richness and lingering creaminess. It is also one of the wines that consistently shows a sense of place. This is a touchstone estate for this specific Montalcino microclimate. Production is 29,000 bottles.
    SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 3, 2021
    Burly tannins put a grip on the black cherry, black currant, plum, earth and tobacco flavors in this dense version, yet it’s also vibrant, building to a lingering finish. All the components are in the right place, so this should come together nicely over time. Best from 2024 through 2045. 2,000 cases made, 300 cases imported.
    JD9595 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - March 4, 2021
    The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is sourced from three vineyard sites in Castelnuovo dell’Abate and spent three years in French and Slavonian oak of various sizes. It offers very pretty, soft floral aromatics of violet, black raspberry, and sweet baking spice. Structurally, the palate is plush and round on the mid-palate, with soft tannins and generous warmth, but without excessive weight. Enjoy over the next 15 or more years.

  15. Cos Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#55188

    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2021
    There are depths of crushed raspberries, pomegranate, roses and peppery herbs to be found in the 2017 Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico. This is silky and pliant in feel, offering ripe red and blue fruits accentuated by sweet spices, as juicy acidity maintains vibrancy. Salty minerals and inner violet florals come forward through the close, along with nuanced tannins that create a classically dry sensation on the elegant finish. This is a total pleasure to taste, but while it’s already drinking beautifully, it will also excel through a number of years of cellaring. The Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico is a blend of 60% Nero d’Avola and 40% Frappato.
