2015 Tenuta Santa Maria Amarone Classico Riserva

2011 Cocito Barbaresco Riserva 'Baluchin" ~ Piemonte
$130Sweet red cherry, wild flowers, mint, white chocolate and a kiss of French oak complement the natural richness of the vintage nicely. Gracious and light on its feet, the 2011 shows plenty of Nebbiolo translucence in a forward, racy style.

2014 Ornellaia Superiore ~ Bolgheri
$3002014 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia reverts to a style and personality that we have not seen in a long while. The late ripening of the grapes allowed the fruit to fully express its liveliness and freshness. The wine opens to a beautifully saturated and dark appearance. The wine shows sweet fruit nuances with blackberry and dark currant. Spice, leather and tobacco fill in the rear.

2012 La Spinetta Barolo Campe ~ Piemonte
$260This wine is simply delicious! Very dark, thick and concentrated. Notes of leather, honeycomb, and earth with some dark plum fruit. A very well balanced glass of decadence.
2018 MacPhail Pinot Noir Mardikian Estate ~ Sonoma County
$180An estate-grown vineyard-designate, this impressive offering is smooth in cherry, berry and clove, with wisps of black pepper dancing around its edges. The finish is long and spicy. It's complex yet fun and will do well at the table though it's also easy enough to enjoy on its own.
