5+1 Insider’s Set Includes:
2x 2014 Ponzi Classico Pinot Noir Willamette Valley
*Includes one complimentary bonus bottle*
The 2014 Ponzi Classico Pinot Noir is what happens when a pioneering Willamette Valley family has all the cards stacked in their favor. Wine Enthusiast has said Ponzi wines are “some of the most elegant wines in the world.” Wine Spectator says “all Oregon Pinot Noirs are measured against the Ponzi yardstick.” Mix in Willamette Valley’s 2014 “Goldilocks” 96-point vintage — courtesy of Spectator — and a showstopping Pinot Noir harvest, and you have the recipe for perfection from the Ponzis. Wine Enthusiast called this riveting “Editors’ Choice” “round and full-bodied” and “ready to enjoy now and over the next couple years” — it’s a “doozy.”
2014 Teeter Totter Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Out of 20,000 wines tasted, only 40 wines made the cut for our Store. And of those, the 2014 Teeter-Totter Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is our #1 hottest, client-favorite wine — a stunning value from Wine Spectator’s 2014 “dream vintage.” Six-time 100-point winemaker Benoit Touquette leveraged his network of exceptional vineyard sources from Yountville, St. Helena, Pritchard Hill, and Calistoga to create a Cabernet that could stand shoulder to shoulder with high-priced, high-profile Napa counterparts — for under $100. True to form, he did it with the release of Teeter-Totter at just $55 per bottle. Robert Parker called this opulent, lip-smacking, black-fruited gem “heady, round” and “hedonistic.” A few prominent wine directors of 3-Michelin-starred restaurants have their allocation. In-the-know collectors have already laid down cases in their cellars. Don’t be one of those who miss out.
2014 Three Wine Company Zinfandel "Mazzoni" Live Oak Contra Costa County
Zin master Matt Cline has a penchant for preserving the oldest, most significant Zinfandel vineyards in America. When translated to bottle, these historic sites, yield dramatic offerings, loaded with class and lush, dark-berry fruit. The 92-point “Mazzoni” Live Oak Zinfandel is case in point. Sourced from 120-year-old vines in Contra Costa, the 2014 “Mazzoni” is one of the most spectacularly concentrated, ethereally complex Zins we’ve tasted. Wine Enthusiast called it “decadently rich,” with a “velvety texture.” We call it American history.
2016 Chateau la Mascaronne Cotes de Provence Quat'Saisons Rose
When Tom Bove sold Château Miraval to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for $60 million, he kept the jewel of his vineyard holdings, Château La Mascaronne, for himself. We’ve followed Mascaronne over the past five vintages — the 2016 is unquestionably the best vintage to-date. Like Tom, we’re content to let the paparazzi chase Brad and Angelina. It’s not fame we’re after; it’s exceptional wine at exceptional prices, and the graceful, silky 2016 Château La Mascaronne — is special. A Wine Enthusiast “Editors’ Choice” 91-point rosé love-letter from the Côtes de Provence, to be precise.
Langlois-Chateau Crémant de Loire Brut
When a revered Champagne house like Bollinger heads to the Loire Valley to produce a sparkling wine to Champagne standards — without Champagne’s hefty price tag — the result is a gem like Langlois-Château’s Crémant de Loire Brut. Even though the Bollinger family isn’t beholden to following the “méthode champenoise” tradition with this label, they choose to deploy the technique to a melange of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Franc anyway. The result is a brilliant bubbly for the masses.
