2010 Tenute Sella, Lessona, Alto-Piemonte, Italy $29.89
Wow! This Nebbiolo-based Alto-Piemontese wine totally rocks! Fans of great Barbaresco and Barolo will love this Lessona as it combines the best attributes of those wines with an extra dimension of complexity and lift from 20% Vespolina. Drink now and over the next 20 years. “The 2010 Lessona is another sublime wine from Sella. Gracious, delicate and wonderfully lifted, the 2010 offers striking aromatics underpinned by firm yet nicely balanced tannins. There is so much to like, as the 2010 just oozes precision and class. A dash of white pepper and sweet red berry fruit rounds out the beguiling, nuanced finish. The Lessona is 80% Nebbiolo and 20% Vespolina that spent 24 months in cask.” - 94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Get some!!!

2013 Tenuta Sella, Costa delle Sesia, Casteltorto, Alto-Piemonte, Italy $22.89
The Sella family has been producing wine from their own vineyards since 1671, making it one of Italy's oldest and most historic wineries. Weighing in at the lean, mean, fighting machine weight of 12.5% alcohol, Sella’s Casteltorto is mostly Nebbiolo with some Croatina and Vespolina sprinkled in. Here are my tasting notes, I hope they make your mouth water like they do mine. “Nose is still youthfully tight, but very cool. The palate is really concentrated, medium-bodied with piercing red fruit complemented by significant soil tones and suave tannins. Delicious now - will just keep getting better for 3-5 years.”

2015 Jacob Martin, Chardonnay, Willamette Valley, OR $20.89
While it’s no secret to savvy wine consumers that Oregon’s Willamette Valley is home to some of the world’s best Pinot Noir, most people outside the region are not aware of how far Chardonnay has come over the last decade. The best Willamette Valley Chardonnays have much more in common with White Burgundy than California Chardonnay. The 2015 Jacob Martin, made by McKinlay winemaker Matt Kinne’s son, Jake, is a strong debut effort and is indeed reminiscent of a great Bourgogne Blanc. Grown in a “secret” high elevation vineyard in the foothills of the coast range framing the Willamette Valley’s western border, this is 100% 108 clone Chardonnay planted in the 1980s - yeah, the good stuff. 30+ year old 108 clone Chardonnay is now in high demand since so much of it was grafted over to inferior Dijon clones in the 1990s. The Jacob Martin is beautifully balanced (12.3% Alc.) with great texture and a strong mineral core that plays very nicely against the delicious Chardonnay fruit notes. Delicious now, this wine will gain in complexity for several years. Get in on the ground floor.

2016 Division Winemaking Co., W.V. Gamay Noir "Cru" Methven, OR $26.89
If I had blind tasted this wine, I would have guessed it to be high-end Cru Beaujolais from Morgon.  It smells like Morgon, it tastes like Morgon.  In that, I mean that there is an intense mineral steak that runs through this wine from start to finish.  While still youthfully tight, the “Cru” offers beautiful strawberry fruit, excellent concentration, and sneaky structure making it a Gamay that should age beautifully for years.  This may well be the second best domestic Gamay I’ve ever had (after the 2013 Division Gamay Cru).

2012 Heritance, Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, CA $29.99
This is really nice Napa Cab that’s ready to go - not to mention a screamin’ deal. Big, rich and medium-full-bodied with plenty of perfectly ripe fruit, a touch of oak and velvety tannins. This is what so many other CA Cabs are trying to be at $50+. Enjoy now and over the next five years. 91 James Suckling & 90 Wine Enthusiast

2012 Heritance, Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa, CA $44.89
As good as this wine’s sibling “Napa” Cabernet is (above), the Rutherford bottling in a serious step up in, well, seriousness. Comprised of fruit grown entirely in Rutherford and including Cabernet Sauvignon from the renowned Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard, the Hertitance Rutherford offers uncommon refinement, detail and complexity versus other domestic Cabs in the $75 and under price range. Enjoy now through 2025. 92 James Suckling

2016 Domaine Eugene Carrel et Fils, Altesse Roussette, Cru Marestel Savoie, France $24.89
I confess, it was love at first “white” when I tasted this dazzling wine. Domaine Carrel et Fils Altesse Roussette Cru Marestel packs a powerful punch with a rich texture, bright minerality and intense concentration. If the Savoie appellation had cru status, Marestel would be designated as Grand Cru. Many of France’s highest vineyards are from this steep region where the extremely poor soils force the roots to dig deep into the limestone rock. The result is a dry wine with impeccable balance and an immense concentration of flavors of peaches, violets and hazelnuts. This wine is outstanding now but will continue to evolve, if you have the patience, for up to three years. - Allison’s pick

2013 Vietti, Barolo, Castiglione, Piedmont, Italy  $43.89
And then, there’s this gem - quite possibly the “value” Barolo of the great 2013 vintage.“The 2013 Barolo Castiglione is rich, powerful and intense, especially for what is the estate's entry-level Barolo. Dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and menthol are all used together. Intense and voluptuous, the Castiglione shows the richer, more intense side of the vintage. Time in the glass helps release the aromatics and the brighter side of Nebbiolo. Quite simply, the 2013 is a super Barolo Castiglione that is starting to close the qualitative gap with the single vineyard Barolos.”  93+- Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2013 Castello di Volpaia, Chianti Classico Riserva, Tuscany, Italy $26.89
The magic of the 2013 Tuscan vintage is on full display here with Castello di Volpaia’s Riserva. Soaring aromatics combine with a palate that displays that illusive combination of density, elegance and balance. “Succulent dark cherry, plum, lavender, menthol and French oak are very nicely delineated in the 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva. There is lovely depth and juiciness to the fruit, but the Riserva remains very much medium in body. A wine of restraint and polish, the 2013 Riserva is super-impressive today. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.” - 92 Antonio Galloni, Vinous
