PARADISE RANCH CABERNET FRANC/MERLOT ICEWINE 2015
BC VQA Okanagan Valley

489245 (S) 200mL $39.95



TASTING NOTE: Here's a rare red Icewine from BC. It opens with lovely strawberry jam, cherry preserves and dried orange peel. The palate is elegant with balancing acidity, plenty of ripe fruit and some savoury red pepper jelly character. Chill and sip, or pair with strawberry-rhubarb pie. (VINTAGES panel, Jan. 2017)

PERSEUS INVICTUS 2013
BC VQA Okanagan Valley

462887 (XD) 750mL $49.00

Invictus, which means 'unconquerable' in Latin, is the flagship wine from Perseus Winery. Based on the grand vins of Bordeaux's Right Bank, the wine is designed as a showcase for the heights that Cabernet Franc - at the core of the blend, along with 38% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Malbec - can reach in the Okanagan Valley. Stylistically big and bold, the 2013 Invictus promises concentrated black cherry and berry fruit, chocolate and spice wrapped in velvety tannins.

DOCG

344762 (D) 750mL $34.95



TASTING NOTE: Starts out beefy, with iron, leather and underbrush aromas, picking up cherry and plum notes on the palate. Dense, dusty tannins line the finish, but this has complexity and persistence. Drink now through 2023. Score: 90 (Bruce Sanderson, winespectator.com, Sept. 30, 2016)

STERLING PLATINUM CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2012
Napa Valley

330258 (XD) 750mL $74.95

PAUL BARA MILLESIME BRUT GRAND CRU CHAMPAGNE 2006
Bouzy, AC

487298 (XD) 375mL $36.95



TASTING NOTE: Smoke, slate, white orchard fruit, cherry pit and dried herbs meld together in the 2006 Brut Millésime Grand Cru. Rich, creamy and expressive in the glass, the 2006 captures the essence of Bouzy in its pure, visceral richness. Lightly honeyed and spiced notes develop on the deeply expressive, satisfying finish as the weight of the Pinot comes through with great clarity. The 2006 is 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay. Disgorged: March 2015. Drink: 2016 - 2026. Score: 93 (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, Nov. 2015)

CHÂTEAU DE LAVERNETTE CUVÉE JEAN JACQUES DE BOISSIEU POUILLY FUISSE 2013
AC

485342 (XD) 750mL $37.95



TASTING NOTE: Produced in a small, 1.5-acre vineyard, this wine is named after a Boissieu ancestor from the 18th century. It is a rich wine, beautifully perfumed and with a rich, lightly wooded texture that shines with yellow fruits and juicy acidity. It is still young and really should age. Drink from 2018. Cellar Selection. Score: 93 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Aug. 2016)

ARMAGNAC DE MONTAL HORS D'ÂGE
AC Armagnac, France

286518 700mL $91.95

TASTING NOTE: Unlike Cognac, which is distilled twice to yield an arguably smoother and more polished spirit, Armagnac is distilled once, leaving behind more traces of flavour and a relatively robust profile. Long aging in wood softens the texture and can yield a rich, marvellously complex spirit. I love old Armagnac, and this one is superbly balanced, with nuances of pear and prune caressed by leather, vanilla and caramelized sugar. Savour it slowly on a cool autumn evening. Score: 93 (Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail, Nov. 21, 2012)

TAYLOR FLADGATE VINTAGE PORT 2003
DOC Douro

951962 (S) 750mL $139.95

TASTING NOTE: The 2003 Taylor's has a lovely ripe, primal bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, vanilla and marmalade ... The palate is medium-bodied with very composed, refined tannins that belie the heat of that summer. There is wonderful focus here and fine tension, the finish offering precise notes of black cherries, mulberry, cloves and white pepper. This is one of the finest Ports of a precocious vintage. Score: 95 (Neal Martin, robertparker.com, June 27, 2013)

CONO SUR 20 BARRELS LIMITED EDITION PINOT NOIR 2014
Casablanca Valley

684530 (XD) 750mL $29.95

TASTING NOTE: Despite its proximity to the Equator, Casablanca is a cool-climate region and fine winemaking is possible here thanks to the cold Humboldt Current that moves along Chile's coast from the Antarctic. The resulting cooling cloud cover and morning fogs have allowed Casablanca to shine as a region for white wine and Pinot Noir. This one from Cono Sur impresses with layered and complex dark fruit, spice and oak tones. Long and fresh with a grippy finish. (VINTAGES panel, July 2016)

DOMAINE CHANSON LES VERGELESSES PERNAND-VERGELESSES 1ER CRU 2013
AC

227199 (XD) 750mL $66.95

TASTING NOTE: Always an impressive vineyard, it has produced a dense wine in this vintage. It's full of both intense, perfumed red fruits and smoky, dusty tannins that give an elegant structure. Drink from 2020. Editors' Choice. Score: 92 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, August 2016)

LOUIS JADOT BEAUNE BOUCHEROTTES 1ER CRU 2013
AC

121319 (XD) 750mL $67.95

TASTING NOTE: A generous wine, this features intense dark fruits, ripe strawberry and an almost sweet character. It's packed with spice, richness and beautiful concentration. Great acidity gives a wine that is developing freshness and weight. Drink from 2020. Score: 94 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Dec. 31, 2015)

MARCHAND-TAWSE CÔTES DE NUITS-VILLAGES 2014
AC

440263 (XD) 750mL $39.95

The Burgundy-and-Ontario team of Marchand-Tawse continues to shine. This will be an elegant and sophisticated wine that will exemplify classic Burgundy. Look for an aromatic wine with cherry and earth with integrated and complex oak tones. Perfect for prime rib.

LUNGAROTTI SAGRANTINO DI MONTEFALCO 2010
DOCG

315499 (D) 750mL $42.95

TASTING NOTE: Aromatic, with spice and medicinal herb notes, this fresh, medium-bodied red offers dried cherry and cranberry fruit, accented by loamy earth and smoke notes. Offers a lasting, grippy finish. Drink now through 2023. Score: 90 (Alison Napjus, winespectator.com, May 31, 2016)

FEL PINOT NOIR 2014
Anderson Valley, Mendocino

309476 (D) 750mL $49.95

TASTING NOTE: Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Brooding aromas of darker fruits including black cherry. Robust and full-bodied on the palate, with flavors of black cherry, blackberry, Asian 5- spice, and tobacco. Very much a big and riper wine in this vintage with noticeable tannins that ameliorate over time in the glass. The fruit-driven finish lingers with purpose. Score: 90 (William Gaffney, princeofpinot.com, April 22, 2016)

DIERBERG PINOT NOIR 2012
Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara

460915 (D) 750mL $70.00

TASTING NOTE: The 2012 Pinot Noir Dierberg Vineyard shows the darker side of Pinot with its earthy, forest floor, red and black fruit and spice aromas and flavors. Coming all from sandy loam soils and aged 18 months in 35% new oak, it's beautifully balanced, has solid mid-palate density and a terrific finish. Enjoy it over the coming 4-6 years. Score: 93 (Jeb Dunnuck, robertparker.com, Aug.27, 2014)

PLANETA CHARDONNAY 2014
DOC Sicilia

485102 (XD) 750mL $45.95

TASTING NOTE: The 2014 Sicilia Menfi Chardonnay takes Sicilian white wine to a whole new level. The Planeta family has been tinkering with this wine for a number of years and has gradually lessened the overall oak impact. That change is evident here and the grapes have benefitted from the excellent 2014 growing season. This was one of the best vintages in recent memory on the Mediterranean island. The bouquet offers balanced spice and ripe fruit with soothing creaminess and big intensity. I'm going to suggest a long drinking window for a wine of this high quality. Drink 2016-2028. Score: 93 (Monica Larner, robertparker.com, Dec. 30, 2015)
