Wine Advocate 92 "I have been tasting wines since 1968, first as a serious amateur, and then, since 1978, as a professional critic. I can unequivocally state that this is one of the finest Italian sparkling wines I have ever had. It establishes a new reference point for this category in Italy. It

Priest Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
90  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 90 Priest Ranch's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is terrific. A rush of inky, super-ripe blue/purplish fruit, spice, lavender, new leather and menthol gives the wine considerable appeal. Even with all of its raciness, the 2015 is not at all overdone, rather it is remarkably nuanced and

99  Anthony Dias Blue 
Anthony Dias Blue 99 "A stunner-dignified and mature (yet so age-worthy). This wine is goosebump-giving world-class, from its blue violet nose to its elegant core. The gritty tannins soften and it evolves with a lava flow of dark chocolate and dark black cherry and cardamom, held up with acidity

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars 'Artemis' 2014 375ml
Please note this is a 375mL (bottle) bottle, which is smaller than a regular 750mL bottle!
92  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 92  "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis is a tasty entry-level offering from Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. Deep, rich and resonant, but very much medium in body, the 2014 offers lovely resonance throughout. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and mocha give the 2014 its plump, juicy

Robert Mondavi 'Napa' Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 1.5L
90  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 90 "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is plump and juicy, not to mention a terrific introduction to the vintage. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice and new leather are some of the signatures. Medium in body and expressive, the 2014 will drink well with minimal

Giacomo Mori 'Castelrotto' Chianti Riserva 2014
90  Antonio Galloni 
Vinous Media 90 "Hints of tobacco, game, leather, licorice and smoke emerge from Mori's 2014 Chianti Riserva Castelrotto. The first signs of aromatic development suggest that the 2014 may not be an especially long-lived wine. Even so, it will deliver considerable drinking pleasure for at least the

Elio Altare 'Larigi' Langhe Barbera 2010
97  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 97 "Altare's 2010 Langhe Larigi (Barbera) stands out for its exceptional textural finesse and elegance. Small red berries, flowers and mint are all woven together beautifully in the glass. The 2010 was aged in 100% new barrels, but there is absolutely not a hint of oak, and the

Bryant Family Vineyards 'Bettina' Meritage 2011
92  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 92+ "The 2011 Bettina is a bit closed in on itself. Dark red cherry, plum, licorice, smoke and tobacco emerge over time. Today the 2011 is a bit compact, which is not surprising considering the vintage. With time in the glass, the 2011 starts to find its typical explosive, dark

Dunn Vineyards 'Howell' Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
98  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 98+ “The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a towering majestic wine. Rich, powerful and yet massively tannic, the 2013 possesses a stunning combination of super-ripe fruit, bright acids and plenty of supporting structure. In the early going, the Howell Mountain is a bit

Salon 'Le Mesnil' Brut Blanc de Blanc 2002
100  Wine Enthusiast 
Wine Enthusiast 100 "The 35th and most recent vintage of Salon since the house was founded in 1905 is memorable and magnificent. Made only from Chardonnay grown in the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, it combines intense minerality, a crisp textured core and the beginnings of maturity. The

Opus One Red 2011
92  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 92+ "The 2011 Opus One may turn out to be one of the surprises of the year. A brilliant, precise wine, the 2011 impresses for its energy. Sweet floral and spiced notes lead to expressive dark red berries, mocha, anise and new leather in a brilliant Opus One. Readers will note the

GD Vajra 'Bricco Viole' Barolo 2010
96  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 96+ "The 2010 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is going to need quite a bit of time to fully come together. Dark cherries, plums, tobacco and spices burst from the glass in an intense, structured Barolo that hits all the high notes. Next to the Ravera, the Bricco delle Viole is more

Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino 2010
95  James Suckling 
James Suckling 95 " Lots of meat, spice and ripe fruit on then nose with hints of blackberry and black cherry. Orange peel too! Full body, dense and velvety with lots of ripe and rich fruit as well as soft texture. Lots of depth and richness. Plenty on the finish. Layers of character here. Needs

DuMol 'Eddie's Patch' Syrah 2011
93  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 93 "An exotic melange of dark red/black fruit, black pepper, orange peel and savory herbs lift from the glass in the 2012 Syrah Eddie's Patch Hoppe-Kelly Vineyard. Vivid, nuanced and wonderfully alive in the glass, the 2011 is firing on all cylinders today. Even with all of the

Tolaini Valdisanti Red Blend 2009
94  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 94 "Another Bordeaux-inspired wine, the 2009 Valdisanti represents a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc (in that order of importance). Fruit is sourced from the Tenuta S. Giovanni. On the nose, it shows delicate embroidery of spice, dark fruit and smoked cedar.

Donelan Family Wines 'Walker Vine Hill' Syrah 2010

95  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 95 "A profound effort, the 2010 Syrah Walker Vine Hill (just under 14% natural alcohol) displays blueberry and blackberry liqueur notes intermixed with licorice, camphor and bouquet garni. Full-bodied with stunning richness, a head-turning, flamboyant perfume, and a long finish, it

Failla 'Sonoma Coast' Pinot Noir 2012
92  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 92 "Failla's 2012 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is wonderfully tense and vibrant, especially within the context of the vintage. Lemon oil and floral notes jump from the glass in a graceful, chiseled Chardonnay long on class. The Chardonnay is done in equal parts stainless steel, barrel

Joseph Phelps Vineyards Insignia 2010
97  Wine Enthusiast 
Wine Enthusiast 97 "This is, as always, a gorgeous wine, rich, balanced and delicious. It shows classic Napa Valley ripeness, with blackberry jam, plum, dark chocolate and sweet oak flavors. Plush and velvety doesn’t begin to do it justice. Despite its fabulous lushness, this is a wine to age.

Abbazia di Novacella Kerner 2015

Le Ragose 'Amarone' della Valpolicella 2006
(1)
92  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 92 "Le Ragose's Amarone della Valpolicella is quite pretty. Plum and black cherry notes meld into freshly cut flowers, cloves and licorice. Firm yet nicely integrated tannins provide the framework in an attractive, deceptively mid-weight Amarone that should drink well for a number

Chateau St Cosme Chateauneuf du Pape 2012
92  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 92 "Opaque ruby. Deep, smoke-accented dark berry and floral scents are lifted by a note of peppery spice. Smoky and sweet in the mouth, offering intense blueberry and cassis flavors and a hint of candied violet. Suggests the north in its fruit profile, finishing with very good

Emerson Brown Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
94  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 94 "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (14.5% alcohol), comes primarily from valley floor and foothill vineyards in Oakville, Rutherford and Calistoga. Impressively well-made, with sweet blackcurrant fruit intermixed with licorice, loamy soil undertones

Manni Nossing Kerner 2012
94  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 94 "The 2012 Kerner captures the essence of what makes Alto Adige and the Valle Isarco in particular, so compelling. A deeply mineral, intense wine, the 2012 saturates the palate with slate, wet rocks, lime, grapefruit and hints of petrol. Magnificent and layered, but also tightly

Paul Hobbs 'Richard Dinner' Chardonnay 2012

95  Antonio Galloni 
Wine Enthusiast 95 "This exquisitely crafted model of balance offers lemon-bar meringue and baked pear on the nose before revealing a tightrope of minerality and lush concentration on the palate, weighted perfectly against each other. Fleshy and delicious, the wine has so much fine fruit to offer

Cade 'Howell Mountain' Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
94  Antonio Galloni 
Antonio Galloni 94  "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Estate is a model of pure sensuality. Bright red berries, rose petals, mint, anise and crushed rocks give the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Howell Mountain much of its brightness and lift. Winemaker Danielle Cyrot has done a
