2016 Domaine du Pégaü "Cuvée Réservée" Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Southern Rhone, France
96-99 points Jeb Dunnuck – “The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve is a ripe, sexy beauty that offers incredible blackcurrants, blackberry, garrigue, herbs and pepper aromas and flavors. Powerful, full-bodied, thick and unctuous, with gorgeous purity, this damn thing made my blood pressure jump about 10 points.

2014 Silver Oak Napa Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, California
Our 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has an opaque crimson color with a purplish hue. The alluring nose draws you in with notes of cassis, black cherry, pipe tobacco, salted caramel, cocoa beans and fresh strawberry. This full-bodied wine enters with a depth of flavor and offers mouth-coating, velvety tannins and flavors of cream soda and red fruit. Black currant and vanilla notes crescendo through the palate to the lengthy finish. This wine is drinkable upon release, but given proper cellaring conditions can be enjoyed through 2040. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11.6% Merlot, 6.7% Cabernet Franc, 2.1% Petit Verdot, 1.6% Malbec.

2015 Joseph Phelps "Insignia"
Napa Valley, California
97-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate – “This wine looks to be another killer effort. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec coming from six vineyards and reared in 100% new French oak, the 2015 Insignia Proprietary Red Wine has a very deep inky-purple color and nose of crushed red and black currants, blackberry pie and plums with hints of dried herbs, sandalwood, spice box and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a knock-out core of intense, energetic fruit with chewy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with epic length and freshness.”
$249.99 per bottle (very limited!)
2015 Vineyard 29 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
St. Helena, Napa Valley, California
“As strongly as I thought last year was a candidate for perfection, it will be the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon 29 Estate that reaches that high mark. Simply spectacular, this wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage and has absolutely magnificent concentration, a stunning nose of blueberries, crème de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spring flowers.” 98-100 Points, Robert M. Parker

2014 Bien Nacido “The Captain” Reserve Pinot Noir
Santa Maria Valley, California
“The 2014 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard The Captain is one of the very finest wines I have tasted from Trey Fletcher and Bien Nacido Estate. Silky, floral and nuanced, the Captain is all finesse. The purity of the red-toned fruit is simply remarkable.” 97 Points, Vinous

2016 Denner Vineyards "Ditch Digger"
Paso Robles, California
50% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, 15% Syrah, 5% Counoise, 5% Cinsaut. "Complex and mysterious aromas of black licorice, ripe strawberry, botanicals and Chinese five spice explode from the glass. A core of dense red fruit flavors, chocolate truffle, and guanciale mingle on the impressive palate. The finish is beautifully rich and textured while still surprisingly light on its feet." 95 Points, Vinous
