2013 Banfi

Brunello di Montalcino

“… I am officially recommending this wine to all those Brunello lovers who appreciate a little more volume and softness on those proverbial love handles. If you like 'em lean and mean, go elsewhere. But if you happen to be seated in front of a piping hot beefsteak that was just pulled off the grill, then you should definitely reach for this bottle. Drink: 2019 - 2030.” ~ Monica Larner for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

One Point Five

Napa Cabernet

“Super-ripe red cherry, pomegranate, mint, rose petal and spice infuse this voluptuous, racy Cabernet Sauvignon. Readers looking for a wine to drink with minimal cellaring will find much to admire in this sexy, racy Cabernet.” ~ Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2016 Hartford Court


Russian River Valley

“Bright, fresh and nuanced… a distinctly mid-weight wine built on expressive citrus and floral character. It also happens to be the hidden gem in this range.” ~ Antonio Galloni, Vinous   Rated  93 Points

I Prove - Corsica

“Vermentinu” is the Corsican name for Vermentino, the most widely planted white grape on the island. Maestracci’s high altitude vineyards produce full-bodied wines with heady floral aromas. This new release shows attractive fleshiness on the palate and great length.

Zinfandel Field Blend

The Conta Costa’s legendary Evangelho Vineyard, planted in 1890, is a field-blend of un-grafted Zinfandel with Carignane, Mourvedre, and numerous other varieties. As always, the winery aims for a style that where the vineyard speaks louder than the winemaker.
