Sea Smoke Pinot Noir Southing 2016 Red California Wine 750 mL

Extremely Limited! "Each year, our goal for Southing is to create the ideal marriage of complexity and elegance.

Sea Smoke Sea Spray Santa Rita Hills Blanc de Noirs 2012 California Sparkling Wine

92 Points Wine Enthusiast  "Hailing from one of the appellation's most celebrated vineyards, this ever-so-slightly pink wine delivers high and tight aromas of pink grapefruit, bubblegum and yeast. The creamy fizz shows ripe nectarine at first, then alkalinity, lime zest and grapefruit pith show up to keep the party in order." - Matt Kettmann

Sea Smoke Ten 2016 Pinot Noir California Red Wine 750 mL
"A brooding and intense wine. The aromas begin with notes of dried flowers and blueberries, then a myriad of spices, cacao and a hint of lavender. Firm, mature tannins—evidence of Ten’s ageability—are followed by a long, velvety finish."- The Winery

Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 1.5L
Seavey Cabernet Sauvignon 1994 1.5L

Extremely Limited, No Discounts! 91 Points - Wine Advocate, December 1997 "The glories of this estate remain its Cabernet Sauvignons. After retasting the 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon, I was even more impressed. Made from low yields of approximately 2 tons of fruit per acre, from Seavey's east-facing hillside vineyards in the Conn Valley, the 1994 exhibits an opaque purple color, and an exuberant yet still young and unformed nose of spice, black fruits, and cedar. Full-bodied, with layers of dense, ripe fruit, this rich, full-bodied, moderately tannic wine should be at its best in 3-5 years. It will keep for two decades or more." -Robert Parker

Senorio de San Vicente Rioja 2009 Red Spanish Wine
Senorio de San Vicente Rioja 2009 Red Spanish Wine

93 Points - International Wine Cellar, September 2013 "(100% tempranillo peludo; aged for 20 months in new French and American oak): Bright purple. Heady, smoke- and spice-accented aromas of dark berries, incense, potpourri and vanilla. Round and seamless in the mouth, offering sweet blackberry and cassis flavors enlivened by a bracing note of minerality. Supple tannins give shape to the strikingly persistent finish, which leaves a sexy floral pastille note behind." –Josh Raynolds ALSO: 92 Points - Wine Advocate, December 2013 90 Points - Wine Spectator, September 2013

Shafer One Point Five Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 California Red Wine 750 mL
Shafer One Point Five Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 California Red Wine 750 mL
" This shows nice concentration on the nose in terms of ash and blackcurrant but also some pretty floral elements with violets and jasmine. Full-bodied with a strong entree of black fruit but with driven acidity, muscular tannins and a long finish. A blend of 95% cabernet sauvignon, 3% merlot, 1% malbec and 1% petit verdot. " 95 pts James Suckling

"The small, concentrated 2015 vintage produced a One Point Five Cabernet that’s less approachable now than in previous years, yet better built for the long haul. The brawny tannins mask the textbook Stags Leap District blackberry fruit, though it’s certainly there, as well as oak vanillin and a savoury earthiness" Decanter 93 pts

- A plush texture carries bold flavors of plum, currant, licorice and cola in this expressive red. Well-integrated tannins and juicy acidity keep this focused. Grounded by a minerally backbone, this shows modern structure, but with depth and freshness. Drink now through 2026.-T.M..November/2015

Taylor Fladgate vintage Port 1992 Portugese Red Dessert Wine 750 mL
Taylor Fladgate vintage Port 1992 Portugese Red Dessert Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited! No Discounts rated 100 points Wine Advocate February 1995 "Taylor's 1992 Vintage Port is unquestionably the greatest young port I have ever tasted. It represents the essence of what vintage port can achieve. The color is an opaque black/purple, and the nose offers up fabulously intense aromas of minerals, cassis, blackberries, licorice, and spices, as well as extraordinary purity and penetration. Yet this is still an unformed and infantile wine. If Chateau Latour made a late-harvest Cabernet Sauvignon, I suspect it might smell like this. In the mouth, the wine is out of this world, displaying layer upon layer of concentrated black fruits backed by well-integrated tannin and structure. This is a massive, magnificently rich, full-bodied port that will be far more flattering in its youth than were such Taylors as the 1983, 1977, or 1970. It possesses awesome fruit, marvelous intensity, and lavish opulence, all brilliantly well-delineated by the wine's formidable structure. This monumental 30-50 year port is a must purchase for port aficionados.! Also noteworthy is the fact that the 1992 Taylor commemorates the 300th anniversary of this firm, as evidenced by the special bottle Taylor used for this port." -Robert Parker

rated 96 points Winespectator May 31, 2005 "Fresh and lively, with raisin, spice and hints of blackberry. Full-bodied and very tight, with plenty of tannins. Very long. Needs to open. '91/'92 Port retrospective. Best after 2008. 6,200 cases made." –James Suckling

Taylor Fladgate Vintage Porto 1994 Portuguese Dessert Wine
Taylor Fladgate Vintage Porto 1994 Portuguese Dessert Wine

Extremely limited! No Discounts rated 100 points Winespectator, #1 of Winespectator's Top 100 wines of the year 1997 "In a word, superb. It's full-bodied, moderately sweet and incredibly tannic, but there's amazing finesse and refinement to the texture, not to mention fabulous, concentrated aromas of raspberries, violets and other flowers. Perhaps the greatest Taylor ever, it's better than either the '92 or the '70, though it's very like the '70 in structure. Best after 2010. 10,000 cases made." –James Suckling

rated 97 points Wine Advocate October 1996 "When tasting young vintage ports, Taylor is always the most backward. Yet potentially, it has the capability to be the most majestic. This classically made, opaque purple-colored wine is crammed with black fruits (blueberries and cassis). It reveals high tannin and a reserved style, but it is enormously constituted with massive body, a formidable mid-palate, and exceptional length. It is a young, rich, powerful Taylor that will require 10-15 years of aging. Compared to the more flashy, forward style of the 1992, the 1994 has more in common with such vintages as 1977 and 1970. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2045." -Robert Parker

Verite La Joie 2007 Red California Wine
Verite La Joie 2007 Red California Wine
100 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2011
"Composed of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec, the 2007's fruit came from four sources, Alexander Valley Mountain Estate, Knight's Valley, Chalk Hill and Bennett Valley. This utterly perfect, flawless wine reveals great intensity along with a wonderful perfume of roasted coffee, blueberries, blackberries, spring flowers, forest floor and crushed rock. Full-bodied and viscous without being heavy, the wine possesses admirable precision as well as good acidity and balance. This stunning wine is developing beautifully. It contains 14.4% alcohol (one of the highest amounts) and a final pH of 3.64. It should last another 30 years." -Robert M. Parker, Jr.
