2012 Corliss Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley $102.99/$88.99/$80.09

“A wine that I would put up there with the crème de la crème of Washington State Cabernets, which is insanely good and does everything right. 97% Cabernet and 3% Petit Verdot. Fabulous notes of toasted spice, chocolate and tobacco leaves. Fabulous purity and freshness, a big, rich mid-palate and sweet tannin that emerge on the finish. Drink 2021-2041. Bravo!”
Wine Advocate, 97 points. New vintage.

2013 G.D. Vajra Barolo Ravera $96.99/$68.99/$62.09

“An elegant, detailed red, expressing pure violet, raspberry and black currant flavors, shade by tar and tobacco. It's harmonious, with a firm grip of tannins and should evolve beautifully over the next 20-25 years. Best from 2022 through 2040. 250 cases made.”
Wine Spectator, 95 points. New item.

2014 Bouchard Père re & Fils Rouge Beaune Clos de la Mousse $75.99/$58.79/$52.91

“Black currant and violet are the hallmarks of this tightly wound red, with vanilla and sandalwood accents entering the fray as this builds to the long, energetic finish. Ends with a vein of mineral and echoes of spice. Best from 2020 through 2033. 200 cases imported. Highly Recommended.” –Wine Spectator, 93 points. New vintage.

2014 Long Shadows Pirouette Red Columbia Valley $69.99/$55.99/$50.39

“A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Petit Verdot, 17% Merlot, 7% Cab Franc and a splash of Malbec. This inky colored beauty gives up tons of graphite, toasted spice, dried herbs and chocolatey dark fruit, full-bodied richness, building, ripe tannin and a great finish. It’s another killer wine from this estate, and possibly the best to date. Drink 2017-2029.”
Wine Advocate, 95+ points. New vintage.

2015 Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Willamette Valley

“This delicious wine shows focused black cherry, cola, cream soda and baking spice flavors. It's perfectly balanced, with all components in proportion and settled nicely together. Drink now through 2022.” –Paul Gregutt, 92 points. New vintage.

2012 Giovanni Sordo Barolo Gabutti Piedmont $29.99/$24.49/$22.49

“Iron, graphite and sanguine aromas introduce this stern, sinewy red, backed by cherry, strawberry, floral and tobacco flavors. Beautifully balanced and long. Though firm, this remains fresh and focused on the aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2045. 475 cases made.”
Wine Spectator, 90 points. New item.

2016 Syncline Subduction Red Washington $25.99/$20.59/$18.53

2015 COR Cellars Momentum Red Horse Heaven Hills $21.99/$17.79/$16.01

“From the ethereal soils and expansive skies of the Horse Heaven Hills comes this snapshot of poetry in motion. Ripe black cherry, dark chocolate and spice make this wine the perfect point from which to launch your culinary and social expectations. Enjoy it with the foods and friends that inspire you. 52% Petit Verdot, 22% Merlot, 20% Malbec and 6% Cabernet Franc.” –Winemaker notes. New vintage.

2015 Argiano Non Confunditur Tuscany $23.99/$17.99/$16.19

-James Suckling, 94 points. New vintage. A Leschi favorite.

2015 Kevin White Winery Red Blend Yakima Valley $23.99/$16.79/$15.11

“This wine jumps out as a lively blend of Bing cherry, plum and blueberry aromas with floral and spice elements throughout. On the palate, these flavors are wrapped around a medium body with soft tannins leading toward a lovely finish. A very enjoyable wine to drink now. 44% Syrah, 31% Grenache and 25% Mourvèdre. 375 cases produced.”

2015 Vietti Barbera d'Asti Tre Vigne Piedmont $20.99/$15.89/$14.30

2016 Domaine de Thulon Rouge Beaujolais Villages $14.99/$10.29/$9.26

The Jambon family have produced what many consider to be the epitome of fresh, country wine that’s what you would get in a little bistro in Burgundy. This ripe and structured wine has a good balance between rich tannins and full, jammy red-berry fruits. It’s attractive, with layers of fruit cut with acidity. New vintage.

2016 Mont Gravet Rouge Carignan Languedoc-Roussillon $9.99/$7.49/$6.74

“Deep, dark color and lovely aromas of blackberries and figs. This wine is full bodied and rich in flavor, but elegant with a long fruit-forward finish. Perfect for barbecue or any grilled meats. Also wonderful with all cheeses.” –Winemaker notes. New vintage.
