Clarendelle 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc from Bordeaux, Bordeaux

"Thanks to a skilful blend of three traditional Bordeaux grape varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc), this is a wine of character with a subtle structure. Making the most of the complementary qualities of each variety, oenologists from Domaine Clarence Dillon and the team from Clarence Dillon Wines produce very well-balanced wine."

Le Petit Lion 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc from St. Julien, Bordeaux

93 Points Tim Atkin 

“This wine is light and fresh, full of crisp and ripe black currant fruits that lie alongside gentle and open tannins. The wine has weight and a rich underlay, although it will develop well and relatively quickly with its bright fruits and acidity.” Wine Enthusiast 90 Points

Marojallia 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot from Margaux, Bordeaux

ON SALE! Original Price: $53.99  

“This is a spicy, fruity wine that has excellent acidity and a rounded, fruity character. It has some extraction, giving a bitter edge, while the final effect is a rich, juicy Merlot.” Wine Enthusiast 92-94 Points

“Another brilliant example from Murielle Andraud and her partner Jean-Luc Thunevin, the intense 2012 Marojallia (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) displays an opaque purple color and a beautiful nose of charcoal, graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit. Some toasty oak is present, but the sweetness of the tannins, the multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and terrific length and intensity make this one of the great stars of 2012.” Robert Parker 93+ Points

“The 2012 Marojallia is powerful and explosive in the glass. A rush of dark red fruit hits the palate first, followed by white pepper, herbs, licorice and mint nuances that add shades of dimension. Marojallia is one of the most powerful, dark wines of Margaux. It is also one of the most distinctive. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2012 for at least a few years. The intensity and resonance here simply add to the wine's considerable appeal. The style is unabashedly ripe and flamboyant, but it all works.” Vinous 93 Points

“Refined texture, dry but not drying. Not especially generous in fruit but there's finesse here and subtlety and fine Cabernet fragrance, a little leafy and very fresh.” Jancis Robinson 17 Points

Moulin Saint-Georges 2012, 0.75L
Merlot / Cabernet Franc from St. Emilion, Bordeaux

"The Moulin St Georges is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that was picked on the 11th and 12th October respectively . . . . . The nose is floral and generous with hints of fruitcake infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe, rounded entry. It is silky smooth and there is beautiful delineation and poise towards the finish as one often founds with this often under-estimated Saint-Emilion. Wonderful tension here, mainly thank to the 3.55pH – great persistency. Tasted April 2013." 92-94 Neal Martin

"The 2012 Moulin Saint-Georges is plump, juicy and forward, all of which make it a terrific choice for drinking over the next handful of years. Violets, lavender, spices and blue-fleshed fruits abound. Supple and sensual, with silky tannins and terrific overall balance, the 2012 is showing very well today. Although not the last word in complexity, Moulin Saint-Georges is quite delicious." Vinous 90 Points

"Fine structure combines with bright fruits and well-wrought tannins that give density. Rich berry fruits shine through the texture, conveying a ripe character to this concentrated and ageworthy wine." Wine Enthusiast 90 Points

Ygrec (Y de Chateau d`Yquem) 2012, 0.75L
Sauvignon Blanc / Sémillon from Bordeaux Supérieur, Bordeaux

"Still youthfully raw, but the tangerine, clementine, white peach, white ginger and lightly toasted brioche notes are all in place, and the long finish of macadamia nut and green almond has depth. This should be gorgeous given enough time." 93 Points Wine Spectator

Sangiovese from Chianti Classico, Tuscany

"You'll find intriguing, earthy aromas of scorched soil, underbrush, leather, ripe plum and a whiff of game on this structured red. Full-bodied, the palate reflects the nose, evoking dried black cherry, cranberry, licorice and a gamy note alongside fine-grained tannins." 91 Points Wine Enthusiast

Masi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera 2012, 0.75L
Corvina / Rondinella / Molinara from Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, Veneto

"Lots of complexity comes through from the outset on the nose, borne out in terms of smoky black cherries, dried rose stems, asphalt, tar and licorice. Full, structured body that dives through layers of dark fruit, driven along by active acidity all the way to the long but not cloying finish." 94 Points James Suckling

Grgich Hills Chardonnay Estate 2012, 0.375L
Chardonnay from Napa Valley, California

"One of California's most important Chardonnay producers! Why? The Chicago Tribune called the 1977 Grgich Hills "The Best Chardonnay in the World" That wine took 1st Place amongst 221 chards from around the world in an historic tasting in May 1980. Now back to the present, the 2012 Grgich Hills starts out with invitingly creamy, with a solid apple core notes; really excelling on the palate, with bright apple and mineral, this one delivers like few can. Drinks well now and will surely improve over time. I'd like this one with Rebecca's roast Fulton Valley Farms air chilled organic chicken. This would be a match made in heaven. Organically grown grapes with organically raised chicken." 92 Points Wilfred Wong

Kendall Jackson Chardonnay Estate Camelot Highlands 2012, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Santa Barbara County, California

"From a cooler climate and gravelly soils, the 2012 Chardonnay Jackson Estate Camelot Highlands comes from 40-year-old, ungrafted vines, is 100% barrel-fermented and aged eight months in 52% new French oak. Abundant aromas of tropical fruits, an opulent, exotic personality, huge richness, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, good acidity and surprising length suggest a Chardonnay that could easily sell at twice the price." 92 Points Robert M.

Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, California

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS, which is also from Clone 337 but from different blocks on the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, saw oak with 90% new Darnajou and 10% new Taransaud. This wine seems slightly more expansive, shares the black ruby/purple color with all of it siblings, and has a boatload of crème de cassis, incense, licorice, graphite and vanilla along with plenty of spice box and forest floor. This is a killer, full-bodied, super-duper, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20 years." 98 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.
