Very fine, bright fruit and fine stone/slate perfume flavors open the noble 2014 Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese. This is a full-bodied, round, intense, piquant and kicking Wehlener Sonnenuhr with a very juicy and intense sweetness, but a lingering minerality. Very sophisticated and complex, this is extremely promising.More
This wine has great body with citrus and minerality flavors, and a distinct salinity. Alcohol is surprisingly well balanced with just ripe tropical fruit notes. Reminds you of Albariño on the nose and then is a bit more rich on the palate.More
A fragrant and fruity wine, ripe in character, its black currant fruits showing strongly. The wine is richly textured, opulent and full in the mouth. It has weight, spice, jammy black fruit and sweet tannins.More
Dark red cherry, plum, licorice and menthol are some of the signatures, but it is the wine's tension and brilliance that I find especially compelling. The Neblina is a blend of five sites, with Hallberg as the core vineyard. This is a gorgeous Pinot Noir from Radio-Coteau. Biodynamically Farmed.More
Everything about this speaks elegance and finesse. Delicate aromas of citrus and patisserie and a palate of green herbs and pomelo. From indigenous varieties.
Perfumed yet earthy, this is a sumptuous and wonderful Bourgogne that could easily go 5-7 years. As it ages more gamey flavors develop.More
Via a bit of verbal trickery (or, one could say, thanks to a lucky accident), Thomas Haag remains able to bottle a second dry wine – i.e., in addition to the relevant Grosses Gewachs – that is sourced from and labeled to refer to the Einzellage Niederberg Helden. (Two dry wines expressly labeled “Niederberg Helden” would violate the letter of VDP regulations.) A reductive, fermentative veil largely parts with aeration to reveal scents of apple, white peach, lime and grapefruit. Things really pick up on the polished palate, with vivaciously bright primary juiciness invigoratingly tinged with piquancy of citrus peel, fruit seeds and pits. Alkaline and stony inflections lend intrigue to a superbly sustained, cheek-pinching, consummately refreshing finish.More
Streaks of lanolin and petrol lend a savory, mineral intensity to this off-dry wine. Concentrated yellow peach and nectarine flavors penetrate deeply on the palate, but the moderately long finish reflects its earthier, spicier side.More
This wine, with light rosé color, strikes for its scent of spices and fruits. Its acid freshness suits its sweetness and offers a well balanced wine.More
This medium bodied Pinot Noir has a deep purple color, and the palate boasts juicy flavors of strawberry, raspberry, and our signature Riverbench smoke and clove.More
From a great looking bottle with a VHS fill, this wine had a deep red center and light red rims. The medium+ intensity nose had a fair amount over Provencal herb in the beginning. After a couple of hours of air, the herbs receded and the result was: black cherries, blackberries, red soil, Provencal herbs, and a hint of cedar.
In the mouth, this wine was ripe and round and yet it felt streamlined and precise due to its light body and crisp acidity. The tannins were light and round and yet clearly present. The overall balance was very impressive. A refined wine with great complexity and mouthfeel.
Deep ruby-red. Explosive, somewhat feral, highly aromatic nose of cassis, roast coffee, game, smoky oak and chocolate; shows a very strong torrefaction aspect. Lush, rich and deep; has a pliancy and degree of early personality I find in only the very best young California cabernets. Subtle notes of chocolate and tobacco contribute to the wine appeal. Finishes fairly tannic but very long.More
Peach and honey come through to the palate, with mineral and chalk, apple, dough and spice, like an apple fritter. Got some Casaba melon, spice, and notes of Granny Smith appleMore
Pure aroma with a touch of red berries, citrus and mineral. Light and fruity with the taste of strawberries and currants.More
A field blend of Mencia, Alicante Bouschet, Pan y Carne and some white varieties, fermented with natural yeast in old oak tanks using 100% stems and no temperature control. It undergoes malo in tank and then spends one year in old barrels. There's no remontage or pigeage, and he works without sulphites. This has bright, fresh blueberry and cranberry fruit with a rasp of tannin and a savoury, saline sign-off.More
The translucently gold 2015 Salus Chardonnay is a model of balance and class that wonderfully showcases the interplay between the inherent concentration from the Rutherford location with the cut and verve that comes from the early picks and restricted malolactic fermentation. The nose conjures ripe lemons with hints of lime flesh and pomelo rind spiced by a faint dusting of powdered ginger and a distant rosemary sprig. Like a bobsled, the palate just glides… both weighty and sleek while riding a clean, crisp and refreshing edge.More
The Melville Vineyard Syrah is 50% whole-cluster pressed. It was fermented with native yeasts in 100% neutral French oak barrels. The Samsara sections of Melville Vineyard are just behind the winery - 8 rows of vines in deep, light-textured sandy loam soil. The vines, planted 1998, are 100% Estrella clone on two different low-vigor rootstocks. Earl Grey tea, sage, rosemary, mint and crushed rose petals lift from the glass. It is deeply spiced, peppery and savory, and explosive.Black cherries, pepper, mint, violets and spices. It possesses striking varietal nuance and tons of character in an exuberant, flashy styleMore
Aromas of mature black-skinned fruit, tilled soil and baking spice lead the nose. The solid palate offers prune, dried cherry, walnut and a confectionery note alongside buffed tannins.More
Many people think that Roditis is not capable of great performance, but efforts like those of the Sant'Or winery are firmly contradicting them. Organic and dry vineyards on hill slopes in Achaia that are softly vinified to give flavors of lemon and white fruit. Well-structured body with a long aftertaste, an expression of Roditis full of character.More
This superb wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Carménère, three Bordeaux grape varieties that have been carefully grown by Santa Rita for more than 80 years. This wine benefits from the best of both; Old and New World combining the elegance of traditional grape varieties with New World techniques. A stacked nose includes aromas of tomato, herbs, cocoa, molasses and berry fruits. The saturated palate announces that this is a big one, while spicy flavors of plum and berry fruits are slightly herbal on a finish with excellent feel and flow.More
Scented and elegant, the wine has an intense ruby red colour and expresses fruity notes of cherry, cranberry and mint on the nose. The olfactory profile is pleasant and fresh, well-balanced, characterized by an acidity that outlines the stretch up to a close with good persistence.More
Straw green color. Aromas and flavors of pineapple caramel cake and tarte tatin with an vibrant, fruity medium body and an engaging, medium-long finish displaying accents of lemon creme brulee, white toffee, and delicate spiced nuts with fine, fruit tannins and light oak flavor. A delicious and elegant chardonnay for everyday pleasure.More
Our 2015 Sorceress is a blend of 60% Grenache from Upland Vineyard, and 40% Syrah from Les Collines Vineyard. 50% whole cluster (foot crushed), it has classic Grenache notes of garrigue, allspice, tobacco, strawberries, and dark cherries. The Les Collines Syrah brings minerality and fresh acidity, along with plum and olive notes, and leads to a gorgeous finish with long, refined tannins and great energy.More
Called "O Positivo" because it's dark as blood. Deep berry flavors with allspice, tobacco, lavender and ancho chile smells and flavors. Healthy acidity lifts the wine's flavors, fine tannins give it structure. Drink this with leg of lamb and garlic sausages.More

Fermented uncrushed, rich aromas of red and black berry fruit and a soft tannic structure. Unfiltered and unfined.More
Spring blossom and ripe stone-fruit aromas float out of the glass. The fresh rounded palate offers creamy pear and ripe apple. It closes on light hint of almond.More
This Bordeaux-style blend from South Africa definitely has the backbone to properly represent its feisty namesake, Max, the vineyard's Jack Russell terrier. Bold and tannic, this blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, and equal parts Malbec, Cab Franc and Petit Verdot begs for an hour or two in a decanter. Do so and you will be rewarded with complex layers of dark berries, tobacco, bramble and coffee flavors. Very good stuff here.More
Straw yellow with considerable intensity and brilliant highlights. This wine is creamy and elegant. It is characterized by freshness and aromas of citrus, herbs, and mineral. On the palate the wine is well-balanced and refreshing with a dry and persistent finish.More

This is the second wine of Clos Haut-Peyraguey. It comes from a fine Sauternes vintage with a great balance between acidity and rich sweetness. With botrytis, plenty of sweetness, bitter marmalade and apricot fruit and delicious acidity, the wine is ready to drink.More
This Syrah blend is noteworthy for its explosive aromatics, with thick, rich fresh fruits of blackberry, boysenberry, plum and blueberry mingling with kirsch, chocolate truffles and subtle dried meat notes of Sopressata and iberico ham, along with the hints of fresh herbs and baking spices. On the palate, the wine is rich and full bodied, with waves of red, black and blue fruits, jam, and chocolate coating the mouth before being lifted by ripe tannins and amble, yet round acidity and finishing with hints of meats (bacon, salami), anise and rich dark earth. The wine finishes extraordinarily long and fresh, as acid and mineral notes continue to support the rich fruits for upwards of a minute.More
Coming all from the Sundance Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, the medium-ruby colored 2013 Syrah The Deal Sundance Vineyard is a unique, singular Syrah that gives up beautiful notes of kirsch, blackberries, sandy, dried soils and hints of olive tapenade. Full-bodied, concentrated, with a great mid-palate and satin-textured tannins, it will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and cruise for a decade after that.More
The 2016 Esprit de Tablas Blanc shows a powerfully Roussanne nose, with notes of beeswax, lychee, white pepper, Asian pear, white flowers, and a little cedary spice. The mouth is rich and powerful, with flavor descriptors that make it sound sweet although it is absolutely dry: lemon pound cake, pear skin, honeysuckle, and sweet oak. The wine's rich texture is in full evidence on the long finish, while the citrus character from Grenache Blanc and a little saline minerality from Picpoul keep things feeling fresh. We expect this to go out two decades, gaining additional nuttiness and complexity over the years. Organically and Biodynamically Farmed.More
