#1) 1998 Mastroberardino Taurasi Radici Riserva
Wine Spectator: 94 PointsA lovely, layered red, offering baked strawberry and cherry fruit accented by graphite, chartreuse liqueur, leather and citrus peel aromas. Vibrant and minerally, with creamy tannins and a subtle streak of tarry smoke echoing on...
Château Beychevelle
1970 Château Beychevelle St. Julien

Oddero Poderi e Cantine
1978 Oddero Barolo Classico
Vinous: 93 Points Oddero’s 1978 Barolo was the unquestioned surprise in our second flight. Oddero is one of Piemonte’s most historic estates. In the late 1970s, Oddero was also one of the top estates in the region. Sadly,...
1985 Dow Vintage Port
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 92 Points  A fine, classic Dow nose with notes of cloves, raisin and a touch of fig. Not incredibly complex but refined and inviting. The palate is sweet and fleshy, again cloves, red-berried fruit, a touch of spice...
Giuseppe Mascarello
1985 Giuseppe Mascarello Barbaresco Marcarini
Producer Note:Giuseppe e Figlio (Mauro) Mascarello is one of the most admired estates in the Langhe region of Piedmont. The 42-acre estate is in Monchiero. It was founded in 1881 by Giuseppe Mascarello and each generation since has taken over the estate...
Emidio Pepe
1990 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
Emidio Pepe is a singular producer creating amazingly complex age worthy reds and whites in a region of mass produced, overly engineered versions of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo. Though the family has been producing wines here since the end of the 19th...
Edi Kante Carso
1991 Edi Kante Carso Terranum Selezione
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 93 Points Readers will find a full, head-on expression of Terrano in the 1991 Terranum, a wine that has only been released recently. Dark fruit, grilled herbs, licorice and earthiness flow from this mid-weight yet...
1992 Penfolds Grange
James Halliday: 96 Points Outstanding dense but bright purple-red; a powerful, concentrated bouquet with blackberry, mulberry and licorice aromas, and the oak seemingly more restrained than is usual. A powerful but impeccably balanced and...
1994 Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage Port
Wine Spectator:  96 Points   Terrific aromas of berries and violets, with a hint of mint. Full-bodied and lightly sweet, with fine, silky tannins that build on the palate and caress the tongue. Outstanding concentration and harmony...
Castell'in Villa
1995 Castell'in Villa Chianti Classico Riserva
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 95 Points The 1995 Chianti Classico Riserva is another marvelously complete wine. Waves of fruit saturate the palate in this intense, full-bodied Riserva. The 1995 is another wine endowed with massive fruit and equally...
Domaine Huët
1995 Domaine Huët Vouvray Moelleux Le Mont
Wine Advocate: 94+ PointsThe yellow-golden colored 1995 Vouvray le Mont Moelleux is super clear and piquant on the spicy/peppery flavored nose with its perfectly ripe and elegant, perfectly balanced fruit. It has the same balance on the palate that...
On Sale
1995 Fattoria Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva Cru Rancia
Like its much-vaunted neighbor in Montalcino, immaculately cellared Chianti can age virtually indefinitely.  It was a twenty year old 1964 Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico Riserva, after all, that changed my life, once-upon-a-time, so I know how...
1995 Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva
Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points Opaque with a dark brooding nose. Great, if somewhat hidden, depth of fruit and excellent balance: the fruit-acid-tannin triangle is textbook perfect. Very tight now, this is a keeper for sure. Try to avoid touching...
