ANTINORI
Tignanello 2015
Our Price $109.99 Winery $135
*Not Available to Sample*
98pts James Suckling
Fantastic aromas of dark berries, sandalwood and Spanish cedar that are ever so deep. Full body, an incredible spin of polished tannins and bright acidity. Incredible depth. Like looking over the edge of a skyscraper. Powerful and structured. A great Tignanello. A little more sangiovese than usual. Best since the legendary 1997?
97 Wine Spectator
Dense and intensely flavored, with violet, black currant, blackberry, graphite, wild herb and spice aromas and flavors, this is concentrated and solidly built, yet also harmonious, vibrant and pure. Approachable now, but should be better in a few years. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2021 through 2035.
96 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Tignanello is a wine that opens, like a fully blossomed rose, right in front of you. This vintage is immediately accessible, generous and opulent. The wine will surely flesh out and gain focus with more bottle age, but one of the best qualities of this vintage is just how beautiful the wine tastes straight out of the gate. The fruit is beautifully ripe with fresh blackberry and cherry nuances, spice, leather, sweet tobacco and smoke.

TAMBER BEY
Deux Chevaux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
SALE $45.99 WINERY $60
First impressions of dark plum, blackberry and confectionary notes of cocoa with coffee grounds evolve from the glass. These aromatics, paired with notes of allspice and vanilla, provide a subtle preview into the mouthfeel of the wine. Flavors of crème de cassis, toasted vanilla and boysenberry are layered with chalky tannins that provide a lengthy finish. The 2016 growing season allowed us to harvest these grapes at optimal ripeness, which resulted in a beautiful wine that can be enjoyed early on with a proper decant.

E16
The West End Pinot Noir 2013
OUR PRICE $39.99 WINERY $55
94 Wine Enthusiast
Gorgeous, deep dark-fruit aromas waft from the glass in this vivid, racy and pure wine. A concentrated but not heavy black-cherry note starts in the aroma, drives through the flavors and on to the lingering finish. Bracing acidity and fine but firm tannins add an elegant, appetizing mouthfeel.

CHEHALEM
"Three Vineyard" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2015
OUR PRICE $21.99 WINERY $30
90 points Vinous
Vivid red. Spice-accented raspberry and candied flowers on the incisive nose. Silky and aromatic on the palate, offering energetic flavors of mineral-tinged red berries and blood orange. Finishes spicy and long, featuring a repeating note of subtly sweet red fruit and gentle tannins. “

RESOLUTE
Chardonnay 2016
OUR PRICE $17.99
Crafted from two vineyards, one on Sonoma Mountain and one in the The Russian River Valley, the 2016 Resolute Chardonnay offers aromas and flavors of peach, lemon, cantaloupe, toasted almonds, and wet rock. The wine displays tightly woven density and ample richness with bright, refreshing acidity. It finishes long with lingering ripe pear, citrus and toffee flavors.
