A Highly Rated Super-Tuscan

From the Heart of Tuscany comes a Super-Tuscan
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc

I Guisti & Zanza Costa Toscana Dulcamara 2015

What a delicious nose that showcases both freshness and depth of flavor. It offers up blackcurrant compote, dark cherries, licorice, five spices, fresh herbs and Chinese spices. Full body, structured and firm tannins and a delightful interplay of fruit and acid. Juicy yet refined. Drink in 2021. Made from organically grown grapes.


From one of the First Families of Barbaresco

2015 Paitin Barbaresco Serraboella

Hay, freshly cut grass and loam aromas segue to a core of cherry that pulls this together. The sweet fruit handles the burly tannins well, ending in a cascade of eucalyptus and tobacco notes. Best from 2023 through 2043. -B.S.

A Highly Rated Chateauneuf From Vieux Telegraphe

Domaine Du Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape Telegramme 2016
Very complex and composed. Bright aromas of wild, red-berries and herbs. Some blueberry pastry, too. Plush, ripe and concentrated palate with long, smooth, ripe and powerful tannins. Great depth and detail. Fresh, red-berry and plum flavours run riot on the finish. Drink or hold.


#19 Top 100 Wine Spectator Chianti Classico

SAN FELICE Chianti Classico 2016
Expressive and smooth, this hits all the right notes, with pure black cherry, black currant and violet flavors. Touches of earth, iron and tobacco add complexity. Shows best from 2020 through 2036. 25,000 cases made. -B.S.

My Favorite Syrah for The Holidays

New Vintage – Market Favorite

2015 Alban Vineyards Patrina Syrah


Moving to the 2015 reds, the 2015 Patrina shows beautifully from barrel and even better from bottle, which is always a good sign. There’s not much of it, but it’s a magnificent Syrah loaded with notions of cassis, blackberries olive tapenade, and ground pepper. Possessing awesome purity of fuit, medium to full body, and a great finish, it should be snatched up by savvy readers.

Our 8th Annual Champagne Tasting was a resounding success.

Thank you to everyone who attended. To all the reps who participated and helped out! Thanks again to Chef Lou from Annie Gunns, you truly outdid yourself once again.

To all who couldn’t attend, we have plenty more bubbles to go around for the holidays. Please come up and see us!!
