Vallana 2004 Gattinara

This will be very interesting to drink in the future, but it's fine now — quite complete and ready, with mature Nebbiolo aromatics. Medium-bodied, quite savory and juicy and fresh on the palate. JW

Antano 2008 Montefalco Sagrantino

Because we can’t drink Bea every time we want wine from Montefalco we are thrilled that our friends at T. Edward Wines discovered this estate. Francesco Antano works approximately 7 hectares (17 acres) of vines, most of which are around 40 years old, and makes wines in an old fashioned style, without use of new oak, and with minimal intervention in the vineyard and cellar. This is truly an outstanding Sagrantino... earthy, spicy and herbal, and quite rich.

Porter Creek 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

We welcome many new labels to our California section, but there are several that have always been there and we’re happy to continue to support — Porter Creek Vineyards is one of them. Porter Creek is located in the heart of Sonoma’s famed Russian River Valley, grapes are grown biodynamically and there is little intervention in the cellar. Alex Davis studied winemaking in Burgundy, and his wines reflect the same passion for flavors of land over extracted fruit or oak flavors. The 2012 Russian River Pinot Noir is surprisingly fresh, but richer than last year’s effort and balanced with bright strawberry-toned fruit, savory herb and a touch of black cherry-flavored tannin.

López de Heredia 2003 Rioja Bosconia Reserva

The 2003 vintage of Bosconia Reserva is my favorite since the fantastically silky 2000 vintage. It is broad-shouldered as you would expect, but, at the same time, it is precise, juicy elegant, and surprisingly graceful. I don't get a whiff of roasted-ness from this cuvée. A miracle has been born; an amazing '03. cb

López de Heredia 1994 Rioja Gran Reserva Tondonia

75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha, and 10% Mazuelo and Graciano, aged 9 years in barrel and 9 years in bottle. Sweet, pretty aromas of balsamic, raspberries, coriander and crunchy leaves. Complex and well-structured on the palate with bright red cherry, chewy cranberry skins, woodsy thyme, thorny rose, clove spice, and crunchy leaves that remind us this fresh Rioja has some age. At the same time, its bright acidity and taut tannins alert us to many great years ahead! -Ariana Rolich

Matthiasson 2009 Napa Valley Red Wine

From a blend of 5 grapes, with the focus being Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, all organically farmed by Steve Matthiasson. This dark ruby (not inky) red wine shows savory aromatics of spices, cellar dust, minerals, and black fruits.  The palate is full bodied, supple with notes of black raspberry, herbs, and licorice.  Almost Italianate in style with nice focus and clarity to the flavors, this strikes us as a serious wine of terroir from California. Good stuff!

Togni 2011 Napa Valley Tambark Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

Phillip Togni is one of the few Napa producers still around making wine and growing grapes as they have in the past.  The land has been in the family’s hands since 1975, and is true mountain fruit grown at over 2,000 feet above the vineyard floor.  The main Togni label is famous for its age-ability, and Togni periodically releases library vintages to show the wine’s capacity to evolve.  Today we are happy to offer Tanbark – the Tognis’ second label, which shows much of the estate’s powerful structure and reserve at a very fair price for fruit of this pedigree.  A recent bottle showed earth flavors like pepper and rich mulberry and plum fruits, it was a fantastic accompaniment to a pork chop served with a rich bean stew.  I would imagine that the wine will continue to integrate and show a bit more fruit, but this is delicious now.

Hirsch Vineyards 2011 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir San Andreas Fault

The San Andreas Fault Pinot Noir incorporates fruit from 30 of Hirsch's 60 parcels to effect a synopsis of terroir and vintage for this great Sonoma Coast winery. 2011 is a lovely and open vintage for this wine with soft, pretty aromas of red berries and herbaceous depth; the palate is graceful and juicy with relatively gentle tannins, tart bitter cherry, warm raspberry, with flecks of lavender and mint and sheer, shimmering florals on the finish. A crowd-pleaser for special occasions! AR

D'Angerville 2011 Volnay 1er Cru

De Montille 2011 Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds

This is the finest Volnay in de Montille's portfolio of superb vineyards. It has been in the family's hands since the 1800s. The parcel is one and a half hectares, a large parcel of one of the steepest vineyards in Volnay. A great wine which has lots of minerality and the limestone character that is a trademark of this vineyard that produces one of the truly profound Volnays. Vinified using 100% whole clusters.

Fricke, Eva 2011 Rheingau Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling

The single off-dry wine in Eva’s stable, and perhaps the most striking, regardless of style. The Schlossberg is a rather large vineyard but Eva’s parcels are well-situated vines up to 45 years old. The soil here is a combination of slate and loess but is also distinguished by a high quartzite content relative to Lorch’s other sites. The wine is stately and reserved aromatically at the moment, displaying primarily a profound sense of high-toned stoniness. On the palate, though, it’s as open and bright as can be, showing just a hint of sweetness atop a full and lush frame. The precision and clarity here are extraordinary and it’s one of the most exciting wines to come out of the Rheingau in a long time. No one else strikes a comparable balance of freshness and body, all with a penetrating minerality. –jfr

Guillot, Julien 2011 Pouilly-Fuissé Sur la Roche

(From a small parcel in the vineyard "Sur la Roche," certified organic and biodynamic) This is a lovely, pure and crystalline Pouilly-Fuissé with very subtle aromatics of floral lemon/lime, exotic fruit, chalk and wet stone. The palate is very mineral and saline, with citrus and white fruits and great finishing acidity. Racy and delicious now, this should improve nicely with three to five years of aging.

Barale 2010 Barolo

We’ve admired Barale for a long time, but after several years of organic farming, their wines are getting even better. They’re not severe wines despite being resolutely traditional, and they age very well (we just enjoyed a bottle of 1971 Barale Barolo), with an appealing openness and finesse on the palate. A blend of three vineyards (Prede, Monrobiolo, and Coste delle Rose), the 2010 Barolo is beautifully balanced. After just a couple of minutes in the glass the wine gained considerable complexity, and it was very pleasing and satisfying. We expect it to improve for many years, but it is already a very fine bottle. JW

Bellevue 2009 Lussac-St.-Emilion

One of the few Bordeaux estates to be certified organic, Château de Bellevue has 12 hectares of Merlot and Cabernet Franc on limestone and clay near Saint-Emilion. The grapes are hand-harvested and fermentations are with wild yeasts and the wine is bottled without fining or filtration. The 2010 is an extremely elegant Bordeaux with lovely deep aromas of cassis, blackberry and strawberry with hints of earth and smoke. The palate is supple, deep and well-structured with dense ripe fruit and a more earthy and mineral center than most modern Bordeaux. This is an excellent value and a great example of a more natural Bordeaux, without excessive oak or extraction.Highly recommended. Decant 3 to 4 hours in advance if drinking now, or cellar five years and drink until 2035.

Terroir Al Límit 2011 Priorat Torroja Vi de la Vila

Dominik Huber of Terroir al Límit uncovers an unheralded side of Priorat in his inspired "village" red, the Torroja Vi de Vila. The Garnatxa and Carignan for this cuvée come from lower, flatter, and cooler vineyards than the precipitously steep, sun-baked, slate slopes that make Priorat famous (and famously difficult to farm, hence expensive). Fermented whole-cluster and aged in used 500L barrels and large foudres, the result is a bright, balanced, and food-friendly wine that has abundant red and purple berry fruit and exquisite floral and mineral layers to thrill devotees of the region (with refreshing acidity and moderate alcohol—13.5%—to subdue its detractors). An enlightened pairing with rabbit confit, roasted root vegetables, or the last tomatoes of the season. Ariana Rolich

DSG David Sampedro Gil 2010 Rioja Phincas

Phincas DSG is a full bodied, rich and spicy Rioja with deep aromas of soft plum, ripe black cherry, earthy beets, and cloves. The palate features mouth-watering acidity and bright red cherry, tart red plum, rich black berries, lovely hints of rosemary, forest floor, pie spice, damp dark earth, and thyme. 70% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano, 10% Garnacha, 5% Viura from David Sampedro Gil's biodynamically farmed sand, clay, and limestone vineyards at 550m in Rioja Alavesa. 14-16 months in 2nd and 3rd year French oak.

Arnot-Roberts 2011 Sonoma County Chalk Hill Clajeux Cabernet Sauvignon

The Arnot-Roberts team has tended the same 12 rows of the low-yielding Clajeux Vineyard (located in the well-draining volcanic soils Sonoma's Chalk Hill AVA) since 2003. The results are consistently lovely, with demure spice and florals on the nose and a demure, mineral-driven, palate of red currants, tart purple plums, licorice, and tobacco. Only 5 barrels were produced.

Saó del Coster 2013 Priorat Pim Pam Poom

Priorat has gotten a bad rap for producing boozy, overwrought reds that don't play well with other wines and everyday fare. We don't embrace this generalization, but for those who do: enter Pim Pam Poom! Our inspired friend, winemaker Fredi Torres, created this wine for Gratallops-based Saó del Coster (before parting ways with the winery late last year) in an effort to capture Priorat terroir in a casually priced cuvée that combines depth and ease. 100% Garnacha, fermented whole cluster (with partial carbonic) and raised in stainless steel, Pim Pam Poom is brimming with funky purple berry skins and crunchy berry seeds, ripe red raspberry, strawberry, and cherry, violet flowers, rich slatey mineral notes, and cracked black peppercorns. Unaffected and utterly delicious, we love this fresh expression of Priorat Garnacha with a light chill and burgers, roasted birds, or roasted eggplant dishes. Ariana Rolich

Matthiasson 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

With a production of just 143 cases, Matthiasson's Cabernet Sauvignon is a rare and delicious treat. 80% Cabernet from three Napa Vineyards that Steve Matthiasson works closely with and 20% Merlot from the Matthiassons' home vineyard, this wine is made in a decidedly “old-school” fashion — no new oak, long and slow fermentation, and no over-extraction. The result is a complex and elegant wine that is enjoyable now for its fresh berry fruit, but also has a soft, tannic structure that will unfold for years and years to come. John Rankin
