  1. • Load Up! • MUST HAVE • Tuscan Treat!
    December 15, 2017

    We'll tell you who the winemaker is in a minute....but this is a wine you need to buy by the case!

    From a stocking-stuffer to a generous "Thank You" to a comforting glass in front of the fire, the 2013 Conti di San Bonifacio Monteregio is perfect for every occasion.

    A hunk of Parmigiano will suffice, but a wedge of lasagna is even better! There are a kaleidoscope of flavors in this Tuscany beauty: Red currant, black cherry, and plush compote provide warming fruit notes on...

  2. Antinori's Treasured Chardonnay
    December 12, 2017
    This outstanding Italian Chardonnay is from the Super Tuscan master. You may know about (and may have even enjoyed) Antinori's popular Tignanello, but if you haven't tried their flagship Chardonnay, you should!

    Bosc pear, hazelnut, baked apples, lime, and a hint of vanilla bean. If you want a wine with a bit more body than a white Burgundy, but don't want the heavy-handed oak influence of a California...

  3. • Gevrey-Chambertin • Extremely Limited •
    December 11, 2017

    Half a hectare?! That's pretty small! In fact, it is a mere three acres of Gevrey-Chambertin, some of the finest Pinot Noir in Burgundy.

    This terroir-driven Gevrey-Chambertin by Domaine Coillot is refined and - what we love most about it - expressive.

    This plush Pinot is complex and textured with silky tannins. Cherries, pomegranate, and cranberries envelop the palate. Aromas of dried rose petals and smashed strawberry preserve persist from first sip to last. The finish -...

  4. Screaming Eagle Winemaker's Personal Project!
    December 06, 2017

    Screaming Eagle, at $2,000 per bottle, may be one of the most elusive and collectible domestic California Cabernets. Former Screaming Eagle winemaker, Andy Erickson, knows this and has created a "Baby Eagle," his own personal project for immediate enjoyment, called Leviathan.

    * This is a 48 hours special after which the price will increase to $44.95 per bottle. *

    For years, we have been a fan of the plush fruit of Leviathan allowing for approachability in its youth without...

  5. 97 pt Super Tuscan Titan!
    December 05, 2017

    This Tignanello toppler is no joke. Every holiday season, we taste a lineup of Super Tuscans to see which are evolving nicely and drinking well this time of year, as they tend to be very popular during the holiday season.

    The elite group typically includes the likes of Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Tignanello and Solaia, but the results vary from year to year and vintage to vintage. This year, the Super Tuscan Titan that topped our list was the 2012 Flaccianello by Fontodi.

    If you...
