HENRI BARDOUIN PASTIS
Provence, France

951368 700mL $40.95

TASTING NOTE: Henri Bardouin was a pioneer in 1990 making a more complex and different pastis, the star anise based aperitif long loved in the south of France. His pastis is extraordinarily complex: multi-layered, multi-flavoured with about 65 different herbs and spices. Yes there's star anise and liquorice but also mugwort, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, thyme, lemon verbena, St. John's wort, oregano, kidney vetch, angelica, grains of paradise, sage, rosemary, borage, black and white pepper and much more. Add about five parts water to one part pastis - it will turn cloudy, milky white. Aromatic, with a subtle interplay of spices, liquorice and herb flavours, it fascinates and intrigues - sure to bring out the poet in you. I will be chagrined if Vintages doesn't reorder once it's all gone from the stores. Score: 93 (Margaret Swaine, winealign.com, July 14, 2013)

FLYING FISH COVE WILDBERRY RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2013
Margaret River, Western Australia

493312 (XD) 750mL $37.95

TASTING NOTE: More than a little fancy. Flesh, power, tannin and reach. This is a cracking release. Currants, chocolates, lead pencil and tobacco. It's classically flavoured, brimful really, but it also locks into a determined groove through the finish. Exciting future ahead. Special Value. Drink by: 2035.

BACHELDER LA PETITE CHARMOTTE NUITS-SAINT-GEORGES 2011
AC

357228 (XD) 750mL $49.95

TASTING NOTE: The Bachelder style shines through all his Pinots from Niagara to Oregon to Burgundy. They are never overdone, always a sense of graceful power and finesse. This gorgeous wine shows fruits of anise, raspberry, ripe cherry and cassis with pretty floral and incense notes. The tannins are evident but smooth and the ripe fruits are bolstered by crunchy minerality and light savoury spice through a long finish. Buy, hold and enjoy years down the road. Score: 93 (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, Aug. 2013)

DOMAINE CHARLES AUDOIN CLOS DU ROY MARSANNAY 2013
AC

243857 (XD) 750mL $47.95

TASTING NOTE: This is the first wine to display any appreciable wood influence though it doesn't impinge on transparency of the attractively floral and earthy dark berry fruit aromas that exhibit an interesting hint of spiced tea. There is both good energy and detail to the medium weight flavors that also exude a fine bead of minerality before concluding in a moderately austere finish. This should reward 6 to 8 years of cellaring though be accessible young too. Drink: 2020+. Outstanding. Top Value. Score: 89-91 (Allen Meadows, burghound.com, Jan. 15, 2015)

ARGIOLAS COSTERA CANNONAU DI SARDEGNA 2013
DOC

99028 (D) 750mL $23.00

TASTING NOTE: Healthy full red. Deep aromas of blackberry, black cherry and mocha are complemented by balsamic nuances. Concentrated, sappy and savory, displaying saline nuances to the black cherry and plum flavors. Finishes with serious depth and the broad, polished tannins to support aging. Drinking window: 2016-2019. Score: 91 (Ian D'Agata, vinous.com, Jan. 2016)

MICHELE SATTA PIASTRAIA 2012
DOC Bolgheri Superiore

709980 (XD) 750mL $38.95

TASTING NOTE: Piastraia was a Bolgheri Rosso and has now been upgraded to Bolgheri Superiore status with this vintage. The 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Piastraia is a sharply contoured and etched red wine with pretty tones of wild berry, spice and moist chewing tobacco. The wine maintains an elegant and feminine personality. Drink 2016-2028. Score: 92 (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Oct. 29, 2015)

CARCHELO SELECTO CRIANZA 2012
DO Jumilla

481382 (XD) 750mL $26.95

TASTING NOTE: Solid tannins give a firm foundation to this focused red, supporting harmonious flavors of plum, licorice, graphite and tar. Juicy acidity keeps this lively. The finish offers an alluring mix of spice and floral notes. Graceful and expressive. Drink now through 2022. Highly Recommended. Score: 93 (Thomas Matthews, winespectator.com, May 31, 2016)

LA JOTA HOWELL MOUNTAIN ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2013
Napa Valley

659755 (XD) 750mL $110.95

TASTING NOTE: The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain is the largest cuvée (2,675 cases) and a blend of all five Bordeaux varieties: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. It's a beauty. Opaque purple, with notes of licorice, charcoal, lead-pencil shavings, blackcurrants and spice, the wine is full-bodied, opulent, lavishly rich and pure, with sweet tannin and a long finish. This wine is approachable now, but promises to age beautifully for 20-25 years. Drink 2015-2040. Score: 93 (Robert Parker Jr., robertparker.com, Oct. 29, 2015)

SILVERADO GEO CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2013
Coombsville, Napa Valley

471409 (XD) 750mL $91.95

TASTING NOTE: The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon GEO is gorgeous. Dark, powerful and intense, the 2013 shows quite a bit more depth and overall intensity than the 2012 tasted alongside it. Black cherry, plum, menthol, licorice and spice all fill out the wine's frame nicely. The 2013 GEO is an attractive, mid-tier Napa Valley Cabernet that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Drinking window: 2018-2028. Score: 92 (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, May 2016)

KISTLER PINOT NOIR 2014
Sonoma Coast

377259 (XD) 750mL $109.95

TASTING NOTE: The 2014 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) is striking. Nuanced and sculpted throughout, the Sonoma Coast Pinot offers gorgeous purity and fabulous nuance, especially at this level. Bright red stone fruits, mint and flowers are all beautifully articulated. This is a strong appellation-level wine from Kistler. Most of the fruit is sourced from the Kistler and Silver belt vineyards. Score: 90-93 (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, Oct. 2015)

PEARL MORISSETTE CUVÉE BLACK BALL RIESLING 2014
Product of Canada

416073 (XD) 750mL $36.20

TASTING NOTE: The 2014 Black Ball riesling was fermented bone dry and aged exclusively in concrete eggs, left unmolested for about eight months on full lees, during which time malolactic was also completed. In other words, it's another atypical Niagara riesling from François Morissette, as he has been crafting virtually from the start, and all the more interesting and intriguing for it. Yet neither is it wildly deviant; it's clear if not perfectly limpid, while fruit expression is quite gentle, yellow apple and bartlett pear-inflected, turning to ripe melon with aeration, while oxidative-leesy notes are present but not dominant. The texture, too, is quite open and broad, creamy but not fat, framed by ripe, mild acids enlivened by a touch of CO2 spritz. I like the layered effect on the palate, and length and complexity are very good, if not outstanding. All things considered, this is an immediately delicious bottle of wine, with a savoury quality that keeps you coming back for more. Tasted December 2016.

DOMAINE BILLAUD-SIMON LES VAILLONS CHABLIS 1ER CRU 2014
AC

330175 (XD) 750mL $39.95

TASTING NOTE: This too is distinctly cool and reserved with its pretty, spicy and airy array of citrus, iodine and ocean breeze scents. There is beautiful intensity and delineation to the delicious and energetic medium-bodied flavors that deliver solid richness and persistence on the well-balanced finish. This excellent effort should amply reward 6 to 8 years of cellaring. Drink: 2021+ Outstanding. Score: 92 (Allen Meadows, burghound.com, Oct. 8, 2016)

SEMÉLI OREINOS HELIOS WHITE 2016
PGI Peloponnese

477554 (XD) 750mL $16.95

A blend of 80% Moschafilero and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, two varieties that do very well in cool-climate conditions. The grapes for this wine were grown at altitude in sites on the Mantinia plateau and on the slopes of the Aigialia mountains, where the cool temperatures and long growing season encourage the development of fine aromatics and vibrant acidity. This wine will be well balanced and floral with finely articulated apple, pear and citrus tones with a buttery texture. Ideal for seafood and meatier fish such as salmon.

RIVERA PRELUDIO N.1 CHARDONNAY 2015
DOC Castel del Monte

177303 (XD) 750mL $16.00

TASTING NOTE: This fabulous value wine has taken a huge jump forward in quality. The 2015 Castel del Monte Chardonnay Preludio N. 1 is a nicely executed wine that shows the ongoing promise of white grapes from the "heel of the boot" of Italy. The bouquet offers exotic fruit and honeysuckle with stone fruit and melon. Those fruity tones are very lively and vibrant. In the mouth, the wine shows medium body and attractive creaminess. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and aged in cement vats. First produced in 1985, this was the first commercial Chardonnay made in Puglia. Drink Date: 2016-2020.

MICHELE CHIARLO CEREQUIO BAROLO 2011
DOCG

393355 (XD) 750mL $73.95

TASTING NOTE: Aromas of dark berry steeped in spirits, baking spice, crushed flower, mocha, eucalyptus and pipe tobacco come together on this stunning wine. The firm palate boasts more fruit than many from this vintage, delivering juicy dark cherry, ripe raspberry, vanilla, cake spice and licorice alongside firm but refined tannins and bright acidity. It's youthfully assertive but balanced, with serious aging potential. Drink: 2021-2041. Cellar Selection. Score: 94 (Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, Feb. 1, 2016)

IGT Toscana

483917 (XD) 750mL $33.95

TASTING NOTE: The 2013 Numero Otto, 100% Canaiolo, opens with exotic, captivating aromatics. Juniper berries, mint, sweet red berries and flowers all take shape in the glass. The 2013 is delicate and mid-weight, with lovely translucency, finesse and crystalline fruit. Castelvecchio has really dialed in on style that works for the Numero Otto. The 2013 is delicious.

489104 (XD) 750mL $28.95

TASTING NOTE: This is a dense and very powerful wine that manages to retain a sense of style. It is certainly rich, although the juicy black fruits and acidity give it a great lift of acidity that balances the density and ripeness. The wine is just approaching its maturity although it will be better from 2017. Cellar Selection. Score: 93 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 1, 2016)

TASTING NOTE: Dominated by Touriga Nacional, this is a powerfully structured, rich wine. The wood aging shows through the mint flavors that brings complexity to the wine. Toast and spice also feature strongly while masking the ripe black plum fruits. Drink this impressive wine from 2018. Cellar Selection. Score: 93 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Nov. 1, 2016)

RIDGE VINEYARDS ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2013
Monte Bello Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mountains

89284 (D) 750mL $86.95

TASTING NOTE: Ridge's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is fabulous. Beams of tannin and acidity make a strong opening statement, but there is more than enough fruit to fill out the wine's frame. This is an especially dark, virile Estate. Then again, that is 2013. Inky blue/purplish fruit, licorice, sage, exotic spices and lavender grace the exquisite finish. This is an absolutely delicious mountain Cabernet endowed with real pedigree and class. It is also arguably the single greatest value in California Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink: 2021-2038.

LO SPARVIERE FRANCIACORTA BRUT CUVÉE NO. 7
Traditional method, DOCG Franciacorta

484584 (D) 750mL $29.95

TASTING NOTE: Franciacorta is an area in the province of Brescia where the winemaking tradition dates back to Roman times. The local limestone-clay soils are ideal for sparkling wines made in the traditional method of Champagne, such as this one made with Chardonnay. It shows pretty lemon, peach and baked apple notes with touches of toast, smoke and flowers. Exceptional value. (VINTAGES panel, July 2016)

DOMAINE DIRLER-CADÉ LIEU-DIT SCHIMBERG PINOT GRIS 2013
AC Alsace

485250 (XD) 750mL $33.95

TASTING NOTE: The 2013 Pinot Gris Schimberg comes from a high altitude of 400 meters and was picked very late and with just 15 hectoliter per hectare. Cultivated on sandstone soils, which are covered by volcanic stones and aged in a 90-hectoliter foudre the wine opens very aromatic but delicate on the nose, displaying very fine ripe pip fruit aromas. Rich, piquant, tension-filled and spicy this dense and tightly structured Pinot Gris is powerful but very well balanced and finishes with a nice salinity. In fact all components are in the right place here. Good length, very promising and really dry. Drink Date: 2015-2022. Score: 91 (Stephan Reinhardt, robertparker.com, Sept. 29, 2016)

MARCHAND TAWSE MEURSAULT 2014
AC

285866 (D) 750mL $65.95

The grapes for this wine are sourced from three vineyards that each reflect the nuanced differences in soil types. The Narvaux vineyard, which provides most of the grapes, is on a steep slope and planted in gravelly limestone soils. The Crotots vineyard is predominantly clay with a limestone base and some gravels. The Grand Charrons is very gravelly with limestone and clay, and very fertile alluvium soils. The resulting wine will be an elegant, floral and vibrant expression of Meursault, with delicately applied oak.
