Kept unracked in oak for 21 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered, this wine is another Cote-Rotie-like look-alike, but with much more floral notes, plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, and hints of licorice and Provencal herbs. It is rich, full-bodied, opulent, super-complex and stunning. Drink now-2025. $60.'

NAM-1157. 15 RIDGE LYTTON ESTATE DRY CREEK VALLEY PETITE SIRAH (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Underground Wine Letter - OUTSTANDING/OUTSTANDING PLUS: 'Ridge has been making Petite Sirah for nearly 50 years. They know how to deal with the grape to make a wine of great intensity and balance. Starting with a Petite Sirah from Mendocino in 1970, Ridge moved on to making Petite Sirah from York Creek beginning in 1971. From 1971 to 1979 the Ridge York Creek Petite Sirah was made from the oldest vines (planted in 1911) in the Devils Hill section of the York Creek Vineyard which is located in the Spring Mountain district of the Napa Valley. In addition to Petite Sirahs from York Creek, Ridge also worked with old vines Petite Sirah in the Geyserville vineyards as well as in the Lytton Springs vineyards. After the purchase of the original Lytton Springs vineyards in the 1990s Ridge replanted the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. By 2002 there was an abundance of Petite Sirah and the first limited quantity bottling of Lytton Estate Petite Sirah was made and sold only from the winery. The 2014 was proclaimed by winemaker John Olney as one of the most elegant ever produced by Ridge and I fully agree. This 2015 Petite Sirah is again stunning. There were 2000 cases produced from 100% Petite Sirah grapes. The wine is dark in color and has a deep blackberry perfume with faint floral spice notes. Rich and full with great intensity and flavor, it has well integrated tannins and is loaded with fruit. Time will yield even more complexity and the wine has decades of life ahead.'

Tannins are subdued, but the silky texture of the wine allows for weight and structure. Acidity is bright to the spiced oak finish.'

NAM-1379. 15 DR. KONSTANTIN FRANK FINGER LAKES RKATSITELI (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Vinous 90: 'The Rkatsiteli variety is of Georgian origin, and is thought to be among the oldest wine grapes in the world. This odd but compelling variety has a long history in the Finger Lakes, as it was among Dr. Frank's original plantings back in the 1950s. A longtime fan favorite, Dr. Frank's Rkatsiteli used to be produced only in tiny quantities, but they have recently expanded the acreage so that the wine can be released into the broader market. This particular vintage boasts a flinty, exotic nose of crushed flowers, white peach, and lemon oil. The palate is light and lifted, with an electric energy and a salted lemon rind quality to the finish.'

Parker 94: A special cuvee produced for the American importer, Eric Solomon, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is huge. It blends 85% or more concrete-aged Grenache with small amounts of Syrah and Mourvedre aged in barrique. The result is a massive wine filled with red fruit. The tannins are ripe to the point of creaminess on the mid-palate then firm up on the long finish. This hides its alcohol better than the regular cuvee and should age longer as a result. Drink now - 2030.'

Gorgeous all around, with plenty of similarities to the traditional cuvee, yet slightly richer and fuller, it delivers beautiful mulled red and black fruits, licorice, spice and tinges of stony minerality on the nose. Full-bodied, supple, seamless and elegant, with fine tannin, it makes the most of a difficult vintage and is certainly one of the top 10-12 wines. Drink now-2023.'

PSI-2565. 13 BAROLO, PIO CESARE (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Parker 95: 'The Pio Cesare 2013 Barolo offers all of the plentiful qualities that make this such a memorable vintage. Because the growing season was slightly cooler compared to the two years preceding it, 2013 offers a great sense of freshness and brightness. Fruit was sourced from seven different vineyard sites (with much of it coming from Serralunga d'Alba). Starting in 2015, Monforte d'Alba fruit will be added. The tannins are tightly integrated within the firm fabric of the wine. Yet, the finish is round and supple. This Barolo offers characteristic aromas of wild berry, black truffle and cola. It is executed in a very traditional style with botte grande and a tiny part barrique to give the wine a tad more oxygen during its integration and aging process. Drink now-2030.'
