91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Aube-based producer’s latest vintage release is rich and creamy. It is young, although it is possible to find the texture and density that will allow it to age. It is in a crisp style, tight with acidity, finishing taut and mineral. Drink from 2019. (RV)" (08/2018) K&L Notes: This all estate grown gem from Baron Fuente is composed of 45% Chardonnay, 40% Meunier, and 15% Pinot Noir from around Charly-sur-Marne. This drinks great right now because of the wonderfully ripe 2009 vintage in Champagne, but will also keep great...

From the producer: "Champagne Fluteau, established in 1935, is one of the oldest family owned and operated wineries in the Aube region of Champagne making estate grown and produced champagnes. Now being run by Thierry and Jennifer Fluteau, representing the fourth generation of the family, whom together with their son, Jeremy, share a desire to make premium, hand crafted champagnes that reflect the unique soils and climate of their Cote de Bars property. Emphasis is placed on quality, combining the traditional know-how inherited from their ancestors with ...

Always one of the great sources of value in Bordeaux, Listrac is among the under-the-radar AOCs that make up the vast majority of production in the region, even as the most famous names comprise but a small fraction of production in any given year. This wine hails from the universally acclaimed 2009 vintage and bears all the hallmarks of that ripe, opulent year.

2009 Dérot-Delugny Millesime Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
This 30-acre estate only keeps one third of their production for making their own Champagne, selling off the rest of their fruit. They are the oldest grower-producer in their village; they have been estate-bottling Champagne since 1929, and they’ve been growing grapes longer than written records go back. Everything is aged in a hillside cellar that is over 50 feet deep at the back. This ten-year-old vintage Champagne is a blanc de noirs, composed of half each Pinot Noir and Meunier from the oldest vines on the estate. It has a wonderful sourdough toast n...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Disgorged in September 2017 with three grams of dosage, the 2009 Blanc de Blancs Brut Tendresse opens very clear, fresh and fine on the nose with discreet smoky notes and very elegant fruit aromas. Ripe and intense on the palate, with good grip and purity, this is an expressive, complex and persistent Blanc de Blancs with a long, refined and refreshing finish. There is a nice, stimulating iodine note in the aftertaste. This is very pure and tensioned with a complex, persistent and enormously salty finish. Tasted ...


Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A classic Meursault nose of hazelnut, white peach and soft pear aromas gives way to fresh, vibrant and energetic middle weight flavors that culminate in a lingering if mildly bitter finish. My note assumes that the bitterness will quickly dissipate as I suspect that it's sulfur-related." (01/2011) Wine Spectator: "Loosely knit, featuring baked apple and grapefruit flavors with a touch of spice. This is rich, just lacks focus, ending with echoes of apple and spice. Drink now through 2014. (BS)" (02/2012)

2009 l'Avocat "Cuvée Speciale", Graves
Back In Stock!
Wine Enthusiast: "This spicy, full-bodied effort shows the generosity of 2009. It has firm tannins, but they are matched by the full blackberry and black currant flavors. The dry core from wood aging is likely to soften over the next 2–3 years." (02/2013) Wine Spectator: "Tar and tobacco notes frame a core of currant fruit in this muscular red. A bit earthy, but has good concentration and a smoky finish. Best from 2012 through 2020. (Web-2012)" K&L Notes: Released from the Chateau in 2019- L'Avocat is in the small commune of Cerons, which is located j...

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red. Aromas of raspberry liqueur, spices and lively orange zest. Broad but with a firm edge of acidity accentuated by the wine's tart orange fruit note. Like the B. Thieriot Chardonnay, this also expanded nicely in the glass. Plenty in reserve here: I'd wait a year or two for the wine's components to harmonize. Fresher than the 2008 bottling. (ST)" (05/2011) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A perfumed and pretty nose speaks of essence of red Pinot fruit and subtle spice hints that carry over t...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noit Estate from Santa Cruz Mountains is a more dark fruit driven effort that has good concentration, plenty of texture, medium to full-bodied richness and classy notes of black cherries, licorice and bouquet garni. It's drinking beautifully today and should keep nicely through 2026. (JD)" (10/2016)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Subtly aromatic nose of cherry, mocha, cinnamon and musky herbs. Smooth and expressive, with dark cherry and spice flavors and an appealing pliant texture. Nicely concentrated and seamless, with very good finishing breadth and cling. Aeration allows this wine to stretch out so give it an hour or so in a decanter if it's on your upcoming drinking list." (06/2011) K&L Notes: Always a favorite among affordable California Pinots, winemaker Wells Guthrie has does it again with the 2009....



94 points Wine Spectator: "Offers rich, smooth, layered flavors of blackberry, wild berry, plum and cassis. Full-bodied, yet graceful and elegant, this is most interesting on the finish, where the flavors glide along and pick up a subtle lift of spice and mocha. Drink now through 2024. " (04/2012) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(60% new oak; includes 2% petit verdot; a blend from several vineyard blocks featuring a higher percentage of rocky soil): Medium ruby. Blackberry, minerals, bitter chocolate, menthol and a crushed rock...


2009 Melville "Donna's" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah
New!
93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque violet. Captivating bouquet offers scents of candied dark berries, licorice, violet, lavender and incense, with a spicy topnote of cracked pepper. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and mulberry flavors show a seamless texture and expand with air. The spice and floral notes repeat on the impressively long, sweet, penetrating finish. This wine would be superb with a Moroccan-spiced lamb dish; in the context of high-end New World Syrah it is a fantastic value." (11/2011) 91 points Robert P...

2009 Haut-Carles, Fronsac
Top Pick!
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Right up there with the best of the Fronsacs, the 2009 Haut-Carles is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest split between Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Boasting Dr. Alain Raynaud as the oenologist/consultant, an abundance of crushed rock, blueberry, graphite and chalky notes are present in this dense purple wine, which is full-bodied, rich and clearly an over-achiever in this vintage or any other. Drink it over the next 10-15+ years. (RP)" (02/2012) 91 points Wine Spectator: "An amped-up style, with lush, velvety lin...


The "Secret Islay" from the famous Cooper's Choice brand owned by the Vintage Malt Whisky Co. This is the company that made the Finlaggan brand a thing. It's likely a single vintage Lagavulin for a seemingly affordable price and there's no question that with the success of Diageo's own 8 year Laggie, these casks are in even more demand. The style is big bold smoke, citrus oil, brine and subtle herbs. Medium to full bodied, it definitely doesn't feel like Laphroaig or Ardbeg! Maybe there's a tiny chance it's Caol Ila, but the weight definitely makes us th...

89-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Nicole Chanrion has turned out a 2009 Cote de Brouilly representing, as usual, a blend selected from among six different old vines lots (bottled unfiltered for the U.S.), each of which was harvested the last days of August or beginning of September and came in close to 14% alcohol. Mint chocolate, bittersweet floral perfume, blackberry, cassis, and blueberry in the nose lead to a richly textured and fruited palate with accents of roasted pecan, toasted hazelnut, dark chocolate, peat, and crushed stone..." (08/...



90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Zinfandel Grande Vineyard is another striking wine. It is less obvious than some of the other Zinfandels in the lineup. The Grande Vineyard is deceptively medium in body, but there is plenty of fruit and just as much character in the glass. Mint, tobacco and dried flowers add shades of nuance to the dark red fruit on the refined finish. (AG)" (12/2011) 90 points Vinous: "(From vines planted in 1920): Bright red-ruby. Crushed blueberry, black plum, pepper and spices on the slightly high-toned nose; a re...


2009 Hacienda Monasterio Ribera del Duero
Back In Stock!
90 points Wine Spectator: "Polished and harmonious, with an earthy charm, this red offers cherry, tobacco, gamey and mineral flavors in a supple texture, supported by well-integrated tannins that give way to a floral finish. Drink now through 2019. " (10/2013)





89 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made in the Parallel style of soft, rich tannins and ultraripe fruit, this Cabernet is instantly flashy for its wealth of blackberries, black currants, dark chocolate and oak. Defines the modern Napa style, although it's too soft to age, so drink up. " (12/2011)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Syrah Cuvée Christine (40% whole clusters aged 14 months in French barrels; 14.4% alcohol) is named after Joe Donelan’s wife. Another French-styled offering, it reminds me of a high-class St-Joseph. Attractive notes of black currants, bacon fat, Provencal herbs, licorice and smoke are found in this elegant, fleshy, rich wine. With good acidity, sweet tannin and burgeoning complexity, it should drink well for a decade or more. (RP)" (02/2011) 92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Showing the supple, elegant side t...

Originally offered only to Shrader's mailing list, the Double Diamond Cabernet Sauvignons are wines of extraordinary quality. From the winemaker: "The straight and simple truth about our Double Diamond wines is, for the quality and the price, we feel we are bringing you one of the best buys in Cabernet on the market today. Our Double Diamond program focuses on two outstanding growing regions - the Napa Valley, renown for producing world-class Cabernet Sauvignons, and the Amber Knolls Vineyard, situated on a mountain top (2,200') in the heart of the Red H...

92 points Wine Spectator: "Bright and jazzy, delivering a lively mouthful of raspberry, white pepper and cinnamon flavors that ride over refined tannins and remain vivid through the long finish. A mineral note comes through strong at the end. Drink now through 2017." (08/2011) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby-red. Heady aromas of candied red berries, rose and spicecake, with subtle mineral and smoke notes adding complexity. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering sappy raspberry and gingerbread flavors and a deeper ...


94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I am thrilled to see the 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel burst from the glass with an exciting melange of dark red cherries, flowers, sweet herbs, mint and spices. Exotic spiced notes linger on the finish. The 2009 boasts serious intensity, richness and depth, but it remains quite tannic and in need of further bottle age. The vintage saw both frost and drought, two conditions that are a little unusual in the same year. Now that it is in bottle, the 2009 meets all of the expectations I had when I tasted it from barrel l...




Robert Parker writes: "One of California's most compelling success stories is Mike Officer's conversion from full-time software developer to full-time guardian of old vine Zinfandel vineyards and world-class producer of artisinal wines. Carlisle is a hugely successful winery, not only because of outstanding customer service, but because of the simple fact that it delivers great wines at extremely fair prices."

Wine Spectator: "Features direct red berry fruit, with currant, cherry and anise notes. Well-proportioned and enjoyable now, this ends with cedar- and tobacco-laced tannins. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2023. 180 cases made. (JL)" (05/2013)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Big and brawny, this is dry and hard in tannins, as Nickel & Nickel wines tend to be in youth. This one, from a cool section of southern Napa Valley, is brisk in acids, making it rather closed now. But it has a gigantic core of blackberries, with a delicious edge of dark chocolate. Merlot is a difficult wine to age in California, but this one should improve over the next five years, maybe longer." (09/2012) Wine Spectator: "Soft and juicy, with notes of cherry, green tea and spice. Drink now. 1,483 cases made." (08/2012)

2009 Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Syrah
Back In Stock!
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Here’s a tight, focused controlled Syrah. It shows the fierce tannins of its mountain origin, plus intense blackberry jam, cassis and beef jerky flavors. Drinkable now, but it really needs a few years to mellow. The estate vineyard is on Spring Mountain in the Mayacamas range. (SH)" (02/2013) Connoisseurs Guide: "Here is another nicely made wine that steers away from overt varietal spice and instead makes juicy fruit its principal message, but the fruit that it features is concentrated and insistent, and it is seasoned with...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Syrah Cardiac Hill is a gorgeous, thrilling wine laced with bacon fat, tapenade, savory herbs and plums. It possesses gorgeous aromatic delineation and fabulous length. The intense, mineral-drenched finish argues for cellaring the wine for at least another 2-3 years, but readers are going to have a very hard time keeping their hands off this gem. Cardiac Hill is a very cold site. The wine (100% Syrah) was vinified with 40% whole cluster and aged in French oak barrels, 27% new. Anticipated maturity: 2014-...

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a blend of the two Cabernets, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah; a joint venture involving Aaron Pott, Carole Meredith and Steve Lagier): Good red-ruby. Attractive aromas of redcurrant, game, licorice and chocolate. Dense and fine-grained, with brisk acidity framing the flavors of blackberry, iodine and game (I might have picked this blind as Malbec!). A bit clenched and unyielding on the back end, with the dusty tannins calling for at least a couple years of cellaring." (05/2012)
Price: $29.99

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(100% grenache, half from a very cool Bennett Valley site and half from limestone-rich soil on the west side of Paso Robles; no new oak): Medium red. Lively cherry and spice aromas lifted by minerals. Supple, lush and sweet, with sound acidity giving shape to the wine's creamy middle-palate texture and liqueur-like red fruits. Very nicely made. (ST)" (05/2012)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous flavors of rich blackberry and wild berry are dark and rich, unfolding in layers and expressing both power and finesse. This red is tight and focused, ending with notes of baking spices, espresso, mineral and cedar. Drink now through 2024. " (07/2012) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Nickel & Nickel brings its deft touch for Napa Valley Bordeaux varieties to Russian River Syrah, with compelling results. The wine is extraordinarily rich and refined, carrying waves of blackberry, cherry, dark chocolate, bacon, smoky cedar a...


93 points Vinous: "(85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo): Vivid ruby. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe cherry and blackberry complicated by suggestions of pipe tobacco, vanilla, leather and potpourri. Sappy, penetrating and smoky on the palate, offering sweet cherry-cola and dark berry compote flavors that become zestier and spicier with air. Dusty tannins build on the strikingly long, expansive finish, which shows excellent clarity, repeating spiciness and lingering dark fruit character. For a world-class, ageworthy red wine this is a r...
