2009 Blackbird "Contrarian" Napa Valley Proprietary Red
Back In Stock!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Just beautiful to drink now, despite grippy tannins that give the ripe fruit an astringent mouthfeel. Based on Cabernet Franc, the wine’s flavors are simply delicious, offering waves of cherries, blueberries, plums and currants. Plenty of new oak adds toasty vanilla. Those tannins suggest pairing this wine with rich foods, such as lamb, but you don’t want to… " (06/2012) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(41% cabernet franc, 35% cabernet sauvignon and 24% merlot; 4.03 pH): Bright red-ruby. Crushed blackb...


97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Showing better from bottle than barrel, the elegant and finesse driven 2009 Cayuse Syrah Cailloux Vineyard is heavenly stuff that is every bit as good as the ’08. Possessing brilliant aromas of frambois, crushed flowers, bacon fat, white pepper, and iron on the nose, this full-bodied, seamless ’09 has an incredible, light texture, perfect balance, and a classically structured, firm finish where the wine’s quality shows. Opening up in the glass and a truly spectacular Syrah … " (06/2012) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...

92 points Vinous: "The 2009 Endre offers up hints of sage, rosemary, wild cherries and tobacco, all supported by vibrant yet-well-integrated tannins. Deceptively medium in body, the 2009 boasts considerable structure and intensity to match its highly appealing mid-weight personality. Like many 2009s, today the Endre is a bit tight and in need of another year or so of bottle age. The blend is 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Verdot. (AG)" (12/2012) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-r...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Though light in color, this is nonetheless intense and concentrated, marked by dried cherry, raspberry, mineral and dusty cedar notes. Ends with a tasty aftertaste of cherry and raspberry. Drink now through 2017." (06/2011)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Tight and well done, featuring complex dried currant, dried herb, cedar and tobacco notes. Most impressive for its elegance and balance. Moreover, 5,844 cases of wine this good at $54 a bottle is a notable accomplishment. Worth buying a handful or more. Drink now through 2022. (JL)" (10/2012) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru is a fleshy wine layered with dark red fruit, flowers, spices, new leather and mocha. This dark Cabernet Sauvignon is graced with considerable depth and tons of cl...



97 points Decanter: "This tasted brilliant in London a few weeks ago at the Bordeaux 10 Years On tasting, but even better in New York. There's so much complexity on offer - the natural elegance pumped up with dark chocolate, graphite and liquorice layering up through the damson and blackberry fruits. A gorgeous, delicious wine with a blast of freshly crushed mint leaf on the finish. This was the third vintage since a second wine was launched in 2007, helping the winemaking team to concentrate and refine this main bottling. Jean-Michel Laporte was directo...

2009 Abreu Howell Mountain Bordeaux Blend
Back In Stock!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Howell Mountain offers up scents of graphite, mulberries, blueberries, vanillin, chocolate and forest floor. The wine’s full-bodied mouthfeel, moderately high tannins, and spicy, structured personality result in a masculine-styled 2009 that requires 4-5 years of cellaring. It should last for three decades. (RP)" (10/2013) 98 points Vinous: "The 2009 Howell Mountain (today known as Las Posadas) emerges from a parcel on the back of this stunning property surrounded by trees known as ‘the corral’ planted ...


2009 Abreu "Thorevilos" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Back In Stock!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Thorevilos displays a stunningly blue/purple color along with an exceptional nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur intermixed with espresso, white chocolate and violets. With unbelievable intensity, a great, full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity, a subtle hint of wood, but no hard edges, this is one 2009 that does not have that broodingly tannic structure that is common in this vintage. This sensational effort can be drunk early on or cellared for another three decades. (RP)" (10/2013) 98 points Vi...

2009 Montrose, St-Estèphe (1.5L)
Top Pick!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Harvested between September 17 and October 5, this wine seems always open for business, so to speak, much like the great 1982s. The summer of 2009 was very hot and dry, which got the harvest off to a reasonably early start. The blend was 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Jean Bernard Delmas’ goal was to find perfect equilibrium between freshness and concentration, given its incredible opulence and the voluptuous character this vintage offered. That’s what this wine has in...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is considered by many observers in Châteauneuf du Pape to be the wine of the vintage, and it can most certainly be counted among the finest. A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvèdre tipping the scales at 15.5% natural alcohol (which is slightly less than the Chaupin), the wine has an inky black/purple color as well as incredible density and richness, with notes of soy, blackberry, and blueberry liqueur, incense, acacia flowers and licorice. The layered,...

98 points James Suckling: "The elevage is complex, building from smaller barrels to larger barrels over a period of six years, finishing in larger vats. Then four years in bottle. Non-sequential releasing with the 2005 and 2006 being released after the 2007 and 2008. This 2009 has good ripeness and deep fruit-presence on the nose with rich red and dark plums, subtly earthy spice, cedar and fresh tobacco. There’s terrific concentration on the palate and very ripe dark-plum, blueberry and cherry flavors. The tannins are fresh, very long and carry flavors d...


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...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The greatest wine I’ve ever tasted from this address is the 2009 Léoville Poyferré, which is a step up over both the 2000 and the 2010. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and the balance Cabernet Franc that hit 13.9% alcohol, it offers everything you could ask of a wine and reveals a saturated purple color as well as incredible notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, lead pencil, exotic Spices, and dried flowers. Incredibly full-bodied, super concentrated, deep, and opulent, yet still pure, fresh, and l...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Built like a tank, the 2009 Valpolicella Superiore Monte Lodoletta is a masterful achievement. This wine shows so beautifully, especially in a warm but balanced vintage like 2009. The fruit is expressive and articulate with deep layers of blackberry preserves, dried cherry, dark chocolate, espresso bean, mesquite smoke and soy sauce. The mouthfeel is super rich and concentrated as the Dal Forno signature style would dictate. The tannic bite is still strong and this wine needs a few more years to stretch out its m...

95 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Wildly complex scents of black raspberry, cherry compote, sassafras, allspice and licorice. Lush and palate-staining, with noteworthy intensity to its open-knit dark berry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors. Silky tannins come on late and meld smoothly with the deep, sappy fruit, which refuses to let go of the palate. I underestimated this powerful, vibrant wine last year. (JR)" (01/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Deux Freres is probably the softest, mo...


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...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Paderewski Vineyard is a new bottling from a site Smith developed for Bill and Liz Armstrong, the owners of Epoch. Zinfandel, Syrah, Petit Sirah and Mourvedre are planted in separate plots but co-fermented. Layers of dark fruit meld into flowers, mint, sweet spices, menthol, eucalyptus and plums, with marvelous density and harmony. This shows superb aromatic complexity and tons of nuance to match its absolutely striking personality. It is a dazzling effort, especially for a young vineyard in just its thi...

2009 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "(Hedonists Gazette, Apr 2016): The red wine flight was a colossal showing for the 2009s, with perfect wines from Cos d'Estournel, La Mission Haut-Brion, Smith Haut Lafitte, Pape Clément and Haut-Brion. These amazing wines are not only showing their individual, singular terroir characteristics at age six, but the luxurious, extravagant richness and body of this vintage...One expects the Mission Haut-Brion, Haut-Brion and Pape Clément to hit the highest points in a vintage like this - and they did. (RP)" (04/2016)...



100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted, the monumental 2009 Cos d’Estournel has lived up to its pre-bottling potential. A remarkable effort from winemaking guru Jean-Guillaume Prats and owner Michel Reybier, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot (33%) and a touch of Cabernet Franc (2%) was cropped at 33 hectoliters per hectare. It boasts an inky/black/purple color along with an extraordinary bouquet of white flowers interwoven with blackberry and blueberry liqueur, incense, charcoa...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Wow, did I underrate this wine from cask. I thought it was outstanding, but this wine is one of the superstars of the vintage. An extraordinarily provocative, exotic nose of a florist shop intermixed with raspberry and blueberry liqueur soars from the glass of this very aromatic/fragrant wine. Dense purple in color, with silky tannins, a full-bodied mouthfeel, great nobility and palate penetration, this is a sensational, compelling Pomerol to drink over the next 20-25 years. (RP)" (12/2011) 94 points Vinous: "T...

A mix of Chardonnay and local variety Rumeni Plavec makes for one of the most interesting sparkling wines we've had in some time. The primary fermentation is done all with native yeasts in stainless. Then wine then undergoes a secondary fermentation in bottle and is aged sur latte for several years before disgorgement and release. *Natural Wine*
Price: $24.99

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...

2009 Futo Oakville Bordeaux Blend
Back In Stock!
97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An explosive, captivating wine, the 2009 Futo bursts from the glass with an exotic melange of incense, tobacco, wild flowers, licorice and plums. Full-bodied and racy, the 2009 covers every inch of the palate with stunning depth and purity. The tannins are firm and quite present, but there is so much fruit they are nearly buried. Readers will be tempted to drink the 2009 young, but my impression is that patience will be highly rewarded. This is yet another striking, totally compelling wine. (AG)" (12/2012) 94 p...

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "As with previous vintages, this rare wine spent 38 months in barrel. Smooth and supple, it’s a lush expression of purple and black fruits, generously endowed with darker flavors of smoke, tar, soy and licorice. There is a compelling, yet subtle, umami character overriding all else. It’s drinking quite beautifully now, but could age considerably longer. *Editors' Choice* (PG)" (02/2014)

2009 Blankiet "Paradise Hills Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Back In Stock!
97 points Vinous: "Four truly spectacular Napa Valley wines take things to another level. Blankiet’s 2009 Proprietary Red wraps around the palate with voluptuous, silky fruit and exceptional overall balance. Although delicious today, the 2009 will continue to thrill those lucky enough to own it for at least another 10-15 years. (AG)" (01/2015) 96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(82% Cabernet Sauvignon): Good deep red-ruby. Captivating aromas of cassis, plum, mocha, smoke and wild herbs. Plush and seamless on the palate, with an elem...

2009 Abreu "Madrona Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
99 points Vinous: "The 2009 Madrona Ranch is dark, virile and imposing, and yet it possesses exceptional balance and class to burn. New leather, grilled herbs, menthol, licorice and spice notes abound. In some vintages, Madrona Ranch is impossibly tannic, and yet the 2009 is magnificent in its sense of poise and overall class. Vivid and finely cut, with tremendous drive, the 2009 will thrill readers lucky enough to own it. What a wine! (AG)" (06/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Madrona Ranch has turned out to be spectacular. Lot...


2009 L'Evangile, Pomerol
Top Pick!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An astonishing effort from the Rothschild family, the 2009 l’Evangile may be the reference point offering from this estate for decades to come. A blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new oak, with 15% natural alcohol, it exhibits a sumptuous bouquet of caramels, black raspberry liqueur, blackberries, violets, graphite and truffles. Thick, viscous flavors are reminiscent of such super-ripe vintages as 1982, 1959, 1949 and 1947. The striking aromatics, massive, full-bodied mouthfeel and multilaye...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Simply put, the 2009 James Berry Vineyard is one of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted from California, or anywhere for that matter. Bright, floral aromatics lead to expressive red fruit in this impossibly elegant, dazzling wine. A melange of rose petals, mint and licorice follows as the James Berry shows off its breathtaking clarity and finesse. Fine-grained, chalky tannins frame the exceptional finish. Frankly, I am surprised this is the first wine of the tasting. Where does one go from here? (AG)" (08...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Larkmead’s 2009 Proprietary Red Wine LMV Salon is distinguished for its centeredness, focus and minerality. Graphite, smoke, plums, red cherries and tobacco are all woven together beautifully here. The 2009 is rich, layered and sensual, but with more than enough structure to support aging. Sweet floral notes and a burst of juicy red berries add complexity on the finish. The 2009 is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 16% Malbec and 5% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. I was completely blown away by...

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Greenish gold. Pungent aromas of dried pear, lemon pith, saffron and smoky lees, with slow-building minerality and a touch of peat. Densely packed but energetic, offering lively orchard and citrus fruit flavors and an exotic floral quality. The peaty note resonates strongly on the finish, which hangs on with impressive tenacity. For all its power, this Chardonnay conveys a sense of weightlessness. (ST)" (06/2011) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene is a tot...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A great introduction to the vintage, the 2009 DB4 emerges from the glass with juicy dark cherries, flowers and sweet spices. The supple radiance and inviting personality typical of the Bryant 2009s come through beautifully. This is a fabulous wine to drink now and over the next decade-plus. The 2009 DB 4 has always been sexy, but today it is even more harmonious than it was last year. (AG)" (12/2012) K&L Notes: Bryant Family's DB4 Cabernets are meticulously crafted and aged. The DB4 wines are 100% Cabernet Sauv...

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. Dark, brooding aromas of cassis, licorice, graphite and chocolate, lifted by a floral topnote. Lush, sweet and seamless, with excellent lift to its ripe black fruit and mineral flavors. Most impressive today on the very long, juicy back end, which features wonderful suave soft tannins for this site I underrated this wine from barrel last year. This superb wine is harmonious already but should really be cellared for at least a few years. (ST)" (05/2012) 91-93 points Robert Parker...

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining purple. Powerful aromas of black raspberry and cassis, with complicating notes of smoked meat, candied lavender and minerals. Deeply pitched, velvety and assertively flavored, with a deep dark berry preserve character enlivened by a strong kick of cracked pepper on the back. Turns spicier on the finish, leaving behind floral pastille, spicecake and licorice notes. This potent wine has the energy of Pinot Noir." (11/2011) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous aromatic int...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Art Bus Red is another seductive, totally polished wine from La Sirena and Heidi Barrett. Ripe red berries, crushed flowers, cinnamon and sweet pipe tobacco are layered into the silky, polished finish. This pretty, mid-weight red has plenty of juicy, forward fruit, not to mention considerable sheer appeal. Fifteen percent of the proceeds from the sale of Art Bus are donated to charity. (AG)" (12/2012)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Baron’s as usual Cabernet Franc-dominated 2009 Flying Pig – incorporating 34% Merlot as well as 12% Cabernet Sauvignon; its entirety sourced from the 1998 En Cerise plantings; and assembled around nine months after fermentation – gives a mouthwatering impression of being suffused with savory, carnal, fatty pan drippings. If this libation doesn’t qualify as high umami, I don’t know what would! With that come ripe, succulent, subtly tart-edged cassis and blueberry; bittersweet floral perfume; as well as rich yet pi...


96 points Wine Spectator: "Sinewy and reserved, with a light dusting of cocoa powder over the tangy damson plum, red licorice and cassis notes. The long, supple finish, with a lovely wafting note of Lapsang souchong tea, is packed with minerality and tight-grained tannins that will need time to fully evolve. One of the more backward 2009s, though this should pick up steam in the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2025." (11/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 is showing better out of bottle than it was last year. Gorgeous kirsch liqueu...
