#11    Aubert Chardonnay Russian River Valley Eastside 2019

“This sings with rich toastiness to the ripe, juicy and powerfully structured white fruit and cooking spice flavors that are backed by firm acidity. Buttery midpalate, with a glistening finish that shows accents of dried tropical fruits. Drink now through 2028.” - Kim Marcus  97 Points

#14    Alexana Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Revana Vineyard 2018

"This vibrant red is coiled with tension, offering dynamic raspberry and blueberry flavors that gather notes of spiced cinnamon and orange oil, building toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2030." - Tim Fish    94 Points

#20    Badia a Coltibuono Chianti Classico 2018

“Though ripe and lush, this is also dense, with pointed tannins giving a physical sensation and lifting the cherry, strawberry and floral flavors. Finds a nice youthful equilibrium in the end, where mouthwatering acidity roams. Best from 2023 through 2038.” - Bruce Sanderson    93 Points

#24    Ridge Geyserville Alexander Valley 2019

“Deeply structured, yet nimble on its feet. Blackberry, fresh fennel and brown baking spices build richness and layers toward medium-grained tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet. Drink now through 2030.”  - Tim Fish    93 Points

#51    Alois Lageder Pinot Grigio Vigneti delle Dolomiti Terra Alpina 2019

“Lively acidity and tangy salinity drive this creamy, light-bodied white, whose flavors of pineapple, apricot and lemon thyme show a zesty orange peel edge, followed by a lingering finish. Drink now.” 

- Bruce Sanderson    90 Points

#52    Snowden Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Brothers Vineyard 2018

This is ripe, warm in feel and very polished, with alluring cassis, plum reduction and melted black licorice notes pouring through, while sleek alder, loam and bay leaf accents form the backdrop for a long, steady finish. Gorgeous. Best from 2022 through 2038.” - James Molesworth    95 Points

#68    Etxaniz Txakolina Getariako Txakolina Rosado Txomin Etxaniz 2020

A lively rosé, with a slight spritz to the cherry, sea salt and grapefruit flavors. Refreshing, with hints of wild herb and spice notes. Drink now."- Gillian Sciaretta    90 Points
