  1. Baby Barolo For That Unmistakeable Chill In The Air!
    October 17, 2017

    More reliable than a groundhog's shadow is the unmistakeable look I got from my pooch this morning that said, "it's a bit cold out right now, I think I will stay inside a bit longer." With this time-tested look is the official transition into red wine season.

    We can think of no better wine to embrace these cooler months than the 2015 Gillardi Langhe Nebbiolo. Cooler weather tends to bring with it heartier seasonal cuisine. Goodbye watermelon, hello seared mushrooms.

  2. Good Things Come To Those Who Wait!
    October 16, 2017

    Good things come to those who wait.  After 7 long years of extremely limited distribution, one of my favorite - if not absolute favorite - California Cabernets has returned to the market! 

    Spring Mountain Vineyard's Estate Cabernet Sauvignon brings back nirvana-like memories of warm onion bread, chilled sweet butter topped with sea salt and glass of this superb Napa Valley red.  Add a porter-house steak and creamed spinach and I couldn't image being...

Nearly a century of burrowing and struggle has forced the vines to reach deep into the soil pulling out minerality and flavors that you do not typically find in a wine at...

    October 11, 2017

    Who has time to wait these days? In a world of technology and information inundation, the art of patience is waning. That's why we are so excited about this Bordeaux library release of the 2007 Bel Air de Siran from Haut-Medoc, which has a decade of bottle age!

    Very few wine lovers have the time, patience or inclination to wait for a wine to evolve. Though most wines are enjoyed "young" and are quite enjoyable at an early stage of development, few people get to experience what an...

  5. Vintage Of A Decade For Burgundy!
    October 10, 2017

    The whispers have turned into a groundswell and the rumors are true: the 2015 red Burgundies are the best in a decade, rivaling the highly sought-after 2005's.

    Warm weather, low yields and small berries are producing wines with a perfect of balance of fruit, structure and acidity. While hoarding is generally frowned upon, we think you should make an exception for the 2015's!

    Today's Bourgogne is a cut above your typical village level Pinot Noir. Domaine Coillot's Bourgogne...
