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

Paolo Bea Sagrantino di Montefalco Pagliaro 2012, 0.75L
Sagrantino from Sagrantino di Montefalco, Umbria

"The fabled local grape of Montefalco is the Sagrantino and the Pagliaro vineyard, situated at 1300 feet in altitude, is dedicated in large part to this grape variety. The harvest of Sagrantino normally occurs during the second half of October. The cuvaison extends for forty to fifty days. The wines is then aged for one year in stainless steel, another two years in large Slavonian oak barrels and, finally, spends one more year in bottle (the wine, like all Bea wines, is unfiltered) before release. Annual production from the Pagliaro vineyard is 15,000 to 20,000 bottles." Importer Notes, Rosenthal Wine Merchant

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

Marques de Caceres Rioja Reserva 2012, 0.75L
Tempranillo from Rioja, La Rioja

"Black cherry, currant and floral notes are expressive and alluring, balanced by loamy earth, tobacco and mineral elements that add a savory quality. Firm, well-integrated tannins give support to the polished texture, while orange peel acidity fuels the fresh finish. . ." 93 Points Wine Spectator

Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon The Montelena Estate 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Calistoga, California

"Montelena's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. Rich, ample and generous, but very much within the Montelena style, the 2012 captures the essence of the year in its pure resonance and sikiness. Dark red stone fruits, plums, menthol and tobacco with bramby undertones emerge over time, but the flavors are quite primary and undeveloped, all of which bode extremely well for the future. I expected the 2012 will offer a long and broad drinking window of pure pleasure." 94+ Points Antonio Galloni

Obvious Proprietary Red No. 01 Dark & Bold 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot from Paso Robles, California

"This blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Merlot is quite reserved on the nose, showing dark red cherry, damp pine and earthy, wet campfire aromas. The wood spice shows strongly on the sip, where cigar box meets with mulberry and sweet berry flavors." Wine Enthusiast

Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select 2012, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Stags Leap District, California

"Shafer’s flagship wine, and one of the world’s greatest Cabernet Sauvignons, is the Hillside Select, which comes from the rocky, volcanic soils on hillsides above the winery. Vineyard production is small, and the wine an incredible example of Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in 100% new oak for 32 months and bottled unfiltered, this can generally be expected to be one of the top dozen or so Cabernet Sauvignons in virtually any vintage in Napa, and certainly possesses 25 to possibly 50 years of aging potential. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is a perfect wine. It elicits more than a few “wows” when you smell the incredible notes of charcoal, graphite and subtle toast, buttressed and dominated by blackcurrant, blackberry and blueberry fruit. The purity of these fruits, the multidimensional mouthfeel, the seamless integration of acid, alcohol, tannin and wood are all flawless. The 2012 signature adds an extravagant opulence and density that is just mind-boggling, and the wine is a total hedonistic and intellectual turn-on already, although it has 30+ years of life ahead of it." 100 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Turley Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard 2012, 0.75L
Zinfandel from Contra Costa County, California

"The 2012 Zinfandel Duarte emerges from a site in Contra Costa. The field blend includes dollops of Carignane and Mourvedre. Silky, sweet tannins provide the backbone for an attractive range of floral and spice notes. The aromatics here are particularly compelling." 91 Points Antonio Galloni
