(N0327-101) 12 ANDREW WILL SORELLA COLUMBIA VALLEY RED  $77.95
U.S. Newly Available 03/27
Parker 96: ‘A wine that I think rivals the 2007 Sorella, the 2012 Sorella comes all from the Champoux Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA and is made from 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc. Aged 18 months in 35% new French oak, it has smoking notes of blackcurrants, black raspberry, toasted bread and spice-box to go with a full-bodied, awesomely concentration, yet layered, balanced profile on the palate. There's a lot of tannin here, so short-term cellaring is advised. This beauty will have 2-3 decades of longevity and will stand toe-to-toe with some of the greatest Bordeaux blends out there. 2020-2037. $83.'

U.S. Newly Available 03/27
Wine Spectator 93: ‘Delicate aromas of crushed dark berry, wilted rose, cedar and graphite fold over to the palate, where they are trim and structured. The firm acidity and tannins are complemented by a hint of fresh-crushed rock. Best from 2016 through 2028. $65.'

(N0327-104) 11 FOLEY JOHNSON RUTHERFORD CABERNET SAUVIGNON  $69.95
U.S. Newly Available 03/27
Wine & Spirits 94: ‘Bill Foley of Foley Family Wines launched this winery in 2012 with his wife, Carol Johnson Foley, based on 50 acres of vineyards east of Highway 29. Brad Warner makes the wine; David Ramey consults. They captured the coolness of the 2011 vintage in a succulent Rutherford cabernet, a wine that feels completely ripe with lovely, gentle richness. The fruit has the fat of a forest mushroom, lasting on notes of cedar, red berries and firm, dusty tannins. The length of the finish suggests it will age with grace. $75.'

(N0327-105) 12 KEENAN RESERVE SPRING MOUNTAIN DISTRICT CABERNET SAUVIGNON  $99.95
U.S. Newly Available 03/27
Wine & Spirits 95: ‘Michael Keenan believes there are two sides of cabernet, one fruity, one savory and herbal. He works to balance the two in the grapes from his Spring Mountain vineyards, consistently growing one of the greatest Napa Valley cabernets in his Reserve. The 2012 contrasts herbal notes of sage and forest floor with bright fruit that energizes the wine. That plump fruit creates a compelling texture against the stone-hard tannins, matching their austerity with silken grace. In the end, the flavors have the blackness of a well, mossy, stony, cool and deep. Compelling now, this is a wine that will benefit from a decade in the cellar.'

(N0327-106) 12 HANDCRAFT CALIFORNIA MALBEC  $9.99
U.S. Newly Available 03/27
Wine Enthusiast 90 - BEST BUY: ‘With a deep red color, enticing spiced-fig aromas and rich, ripe flavors, this is a full-bodied but well-tamed wine. Aromas of black cherry, blackberries and cinnamon lead to ripe but not sweet flavors that seem juicy and fresh. The texture is firm enough, with tannins to balance the ripeness and make another sip tempting. $13.'

U.S. Newly Available 03/27
Parker 90: ‘Another smoking value is the 2014 Semillon. Notes of ripe lemons, honeysuckle and green herbs give way to a medium-bodied, supple, textured white that has acidity and a clean, dry finish. While the trend is to make racy, safe, boring and overly acidic whites these days, this has real character and fruit. Drink it over the coming year or so.'

Wine & Spirits 91: ‘This wine's bracing acidity catches the coolness of the California coast.

Wine Enthusiast 93: ‘There's a sharp element of lime rind and brie cheese skin at first sniff of this wine, but the nose quickly softens into white peach elements. Once sipped, the citrus pith tightness remains, and while it doesn't veer into juicy ripeness, there are supple apple and pear fruit flavors, cut further with lemon juice on the finish. $37.'

FRANCE BURGUNDY Newly Available 03/27
(stocked regularly) Parker 93: ‘The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur has a completely different bouquet compared to the Vaudésir, more floral perhaps, the wood contact a little more palpable vis-a-vis the Vaudésir. Allowing it time to open in the glass, there are scents of white chocolate and almond. The palate is very well balanced with a rounded texture, hints of acacia honey and ginger on the entry; it is spicier than the Vaudésir with a powerful and very well-delineated finish that lingers long in the mouth. It will benefit from 4-5 years in bottle, if you can resist.'

Wine & Spirits 92: ‘This is pulled from two parcels, one a mix of sand and stone, the other covered with galets, the vines averaging about 40 years old. It's a huge wine, black in fruit and ample in oak spice and toast. For all the brawn, however, it feels as smooth and firm as marble, a sleek monolith that should gain complexity with time in the cellar.'
