Jamesport Vineyards Petit Verdot Reserve 2007 Red Long Island Wine
Jamesport Vineyards Petit Verdot Reserve 2007 Red Long Island Wine
90 Points Wine Enthusiast August 2013
"Powerfully structured, with bold, black-cherry preserve flavors speckled with vanilla, sweet spice and mint, this is a concentrated but impeccably refined Petit Verdot. Hints of wet earth and leather add complexity to the palate, along with sprightly acidity and tannins that linger." -Anna Lee C. Iijma

Lokoya Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder 2007
Lokoya Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder 2007
Extremely Limited! No Discounts!

99 Points - Wine Advocate, December 2009
"The nearly perfect, inky/purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder boasts abundant aromas of blueberry pie, ink, violets, burning embers, and camphor. The staggeringly intense, provocatively complex aromatics are followed by a full-bodied wine with exquisite concentration as well as a stunningly pure texture. One of the most prodigious 2007 Cabernets I tasted, it should provide magical drinking in 5-6 years, and last for three decades or more. Jess Jackson, who has spawned some of California's most talented winemakers, has Chris Carpenter behind the success of these wines. These current releases are the strongest efforts from Lokoya since their 1997s, 2001s, and 2002s. Production ranges from a low 200 cases for the Diamond Mountain, to over 1,000 cases for the highest rated cuvee, the Mount Veeder. All these wines have indigenous yeast fermentations, are aged approximately 21 months in new French oak, and are bottled with minimal clarification. They are made from what is essentially the best fruit from the remarkable array of vineyards owned by Jess Jackson." -Robert Parker

Maison Nicolas Potel Bonnes Mares Grand Cru 2007 Red French Wine
Maison Nicolas Potel Bonnes Mares Grand Cru 2007 Red French Wine
Extremely Limited!

90-93 Points - Burghound, January 2009
"As it almost always is chez Potel, here the nose is deeper and more serious with obvious earth and game notes that add depth to the red and dark berry fruit aromas that merge into delicious, round and distinctly masculine and powerful flavors that are punchy, long and while not rustic, certainly robust. Despite the muscled quality, this is not an especially big Bonnes Mares by the standards of this grand cru though it is certainly focused and intense. Drink 2015+." -Allen Meadows

Noon Eclipse Proprietary Red Blend 2012 Australian Red Wine 750mL

92 Points Vinous Media July 2014

"(88% grenache, 9% shiraz and 3% graciano): Opaque ruby. Assertively perfumed scents of raspberry liqueur, cherry pit, licorice and woodsmoke, with a subtle hint of white pepper adding lift. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors that put on weight with air. The broad, smoky finish shows resonating spiciness, supple tannins and a whiplash of sweet dark berry fruit." - Josh Raynolds

Opus One Overture California Red Wine 750 mL
Opus One Overture California Red Wine 750 mL

Extremely Limited!  No Discounts!

"In keeping with the tradition of many great Bordeaux estates, Opus One produces a fine second wine called Overture. Since 1993, Overture has been crafted as a part of our relentless pursuit of quality for Opus One. Every acre of our estate vineyard is farmed with the attention to detail and singular focus required to produce Opus One. As part of the highly selective blending process, some lots, despite showcasing the amazing Oakville terroir of our estate, are not chosen for the final blend of Opus One. These lots are afforded additional time in barrel, in combination with blending across multiple vintages, to achieve a final non vintage wine of remarkable elegance and complexity that captures the essence of our estate vineyard over time. This is Overture. Aged in French oak, Overture is composed of the same five varietals that define Opus One: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec." The Winery

Penfolds Grange Bin 95 Shiraz 2010 Red Australian Wine 750 mL
Penfolds Grange Bin 95 Shiraz 2010 Red Australian Wine 750 mL

eRobertParker.com #215 Oct 2014 Lisa Perrotti-Brown Drink: 2022 - 2040

"The 2010 Grange is a 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 96% Shiraz blend made from Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate fruit that was aged 17 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. Very deep purple-black in color, this is classic Grange - amongst the finest produced - replete with fresh, vibrant and youthful black fruit notes showing some blueberry aromas and accents of camphor, anise and the slightest floral hint plus a whiff of oak in the background to lend a cedar-laced lift to this textbook Shiraz nose. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, it is very taut and finely constructed showing typically firm, grainy, uniform tannins, great concentration and wonderful persistence on the finish. If I have any very slight complaint of this near perfect wine it is that it seems a little too clinical and appears to speak less of the land and the heart of South Australia and more of the very skilled winemaking than did the Grange from the magical 2008 vintage." -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Plumpjack 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa California Red Wine 750 mL
Plumpjack 2014 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa California Red Wine 750 mL

95 Points from Wine Advocate

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, is a beauty. Bigger-boned and framed than many 2014s, with more structure, this is classic Oakville material, with an opaque purple color and a big, sweet kiss of graphite, blackcurrants, Christmas fruitcake and spice box. Full-bodied and opulent, with moderate tannin, this is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next 20 or more years. This famed estate on the Oakville crossroads, which was once the Villa Mt. Eden winery, where Nils Venge made a succession of profound wines in the 1970s, is now owned by the Getty family and called Plumpjack. These are always among my favorite wines in Napa Valley, as they are consistently well-crafted and represent the best of the Oakville corridor.9;s a beauty." - Robert Parker, Dec. 2015
