2014 Substance (K Vintners) "Powerline Estate" Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The new 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Powerline is a new cuvee based around a vineyard in the southern part of Walla Walla. Harvested from tiny yields and aged in mostly neutral barrels, this full-bodied, luxuriously textured, seamless beauty gives up lots of classic Cabernet notes of creme de cassis, licorice, toasted spice and graphite. There's an undeniably sexy style here, and while it will certainly be approachable on release, my money's on it evolving gracefully for 15-20 years. These latest releases from Charles Smith check in at the top of the pyramid ...Read More »

2014 Cara Nord Negre Catalan (Previously $18)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A north-facing vineyard in the Catalan area of Spain, this 2014 Cara Nord red blend of 42% Grenache, 38% Syrah and 20% Garrut (an indigenous grape of Conca de Barbera, which is northeast of Priorat and Montsant) has produced a very fragrant Pinot Noir-style of wine, with notes of earth, forest floor, black and red currants, in a medium-bodied, easygoing, savory, lush style. Drink it over the next several years. (RP)" (7/2015)

2014 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $230) Top Pick!
2014 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $230)

98 points James Suckling: "Loads of dark tobacco aromas with blackcurrants and black olives. Boysenberries, too. Full to medium body, ultra-fine tannins and lots of flavors of smoke, dried roasted chillis, black truffles, mushrooms and fruit. Bright acidity on the finish. Sexy and subtle austerity. Alluring. Very approachable now but better in 2021. *Top 100 of 2017*" (1/2017) 97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from their valley floor site in Yountville, the 2014 Dominus is a rich, concentrated red, especially in 2014.

2016 Julian Haart "1,000L" Riesling Mosel (Previously $20)

Importer's Notes: "Julian Haart apprenticed with Egon Müller and Klaus Peter Keller. That’s like learning to draw under da Vinci and Picasso." He also makes wines in collaboration with AJ Adam (another of the Mosel's up and coming stars). The 1000L is exactly as it sounds, a bottling of a single 1000 liter "Fuder" or large oak vat. This wine is basically the de-classified stuff from Julian's higher tier including holdings in Ohligsberg, Goldtröpfchen, Schuberstlay "Grand Cru" sites. The wine is naturally fermented in Fuder and is just fractionally off-dr... Read More »

2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $18) Top Pick!
2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $18)

93 points Wine & Spirits: "A modern take on an old-fashioned style of Eden Valley Shiraz, this is bold in flavor but not at all massive - more about stamina and grace than density and weight. Its flavors of red currants, jasmine and tar have forthright power, a zesty blast of Shiraz spice that leaves a clean, fresh taste in its wake. This performs far above its price, a wine to buy by the case and enjoy this winter into spring." (2/2017) 90 points Vinous: "Deep, lurid ruby. Ripe dark berries, cherry pit and a hint of licorice on the smoke-tinged nose and in the mouth. Shows good depth and gentle sweet ...Read More »
