2021 McKinlay, Pinot Noir, Estate, Chehalem Mountains Willamette Valley, OR $39.99 bottle / $215.94($35.99) six-pack
The first great 2021 Oregon Pinot Noir release of the vintage! There are a lot of domestic wineries that claim to make "Burgundian" style Pinot Noirs, but no one outside of the Cote d'Or makes a more Burgundian-styled Pinot Noir than Matt Kinne of McKinlay.  Matt has been issuing reference-standard Willamette Valley Pinot Noir since the '80s and has a track record of producing age-worthy Pinots matched only by the late David Lett of Eyrie and Russ Raney (formerly) of Evesham Wood.  Matt's formula for greatness is simple:  An excellent old vine vineyard with own rooted Wadenswil, Pommard and Hanzel clones, beautiful fruit picked early (13% alcohol!), native yeast fermentation and aging in old neutral oak barrels.  The 2021 McKinlay Estate Pinot Noir is another classic.  Aromas of violets, cloves and earth lead to the tightly wound palate which offers ultra-pure fruit, spices, and another dose of earth.  Velvety tannins and noble acidity provide this brooding wine with excellent structure.  If you like or are curious about Pinot Noirs that don't just "age," but actually evolve and improve for 15+ years, this is a must purchase.  Buy a case and enjoy the ride.  DON'T MISS THIS!

2020 Antoine Sanzay Saumur-Champigny Rouge, La Paterne $29.99
Along with Chinon and Bourgueil, Saumur-Champigny is the epicenter of the Cabernet Franc world. Grown on tuffeau (tufa/limestone), a kind of soft chalk that lends its special soil signature to Saumur-Champigny and gives this 100% Cabernet Franc its strong gout de terroir.  The 2020 La Paterne offers a beautiful nose and palate with gorgeous Cab Franc fruit combining elegance and structure with outstanding balance.  The fresh raspberry fruit supports additional notes of fine leather and soil tones framed by suave tannins. While the medium-full-bodied 2020 La Paterne is great now with rich cuisine like fatty rib-eyes or pork shoulder roasts, it will improve as it ages effortlessly in the cellar through 2035.

2020 Produttori del Barbaresco, Langhe Nebbiolo, Piedmont $23.89
For many of you, the Produttori del Barbaresco needs no introduction. Their Lange Nebbiolo is made from fruit that is entirely from Barbaresco vineyards that is declassified into this early-drinking gem. Produttori’s 2020 Langhe Nebbiolo is one of the best vintages of this bottling in years.  Juicy ripe raspberry and boysenberry fruit is cradled by suave tannins and given lift by good acidity in this medium-full-bodied red. Enjoy this crowd-pleasing Nebbiolo now and over the next three to five years with mushroom risotto, pizza, tagliatelle with meat sauce etc. “Quite a spicy nosed, with a smoky note to the rich red berries. Medium-bodied with intense fruit flavors and a tight, just-right tannin structure.” - 91 James Suckling

2020 Inama, Soave Classico, Vigneti di Foscarino, Veneto, Italy $23.89
Soave is located in Northeast Italy in the Veneto region directly east of the city of Verona. Today, we are seeing an awakening in Soave in which the best wineries are bottling single cru wines from the best terroirs such as Inama’s Foscarino. An explosive nose segues to the deep and expansive palate with immaculate balance between fruit, acidity, and mineral action. Intense and delicious! Hard to put the glass down! “The 2020 Soave Classico Foscarino opens with wet slate and smoke evolving into young pear and hints of lemon. This showcases ripe orchard fruits with a pretty inner sweetness balanced by its salty acidity. It remains saline through the finale, long and staining with penetrating ripe orchard fruits. In fact, this is more extroverted in style, yet streamlined and nervous in feel. Drink 2023-2030” - 90-93 Vinous & “Very ripe, yet discreet and so mineral and punchy, almost like smelling a wet rock. Bone-dry and crisp, yet elegant and textured. Really attractive and subtle with a linear, mineral finish. Delicious now, but will hold, too.” - 95 James Suckling

2019 Felsina, Chianti Classico Riserva, Rancia, Tuscany $49.99 bottle / $281.94($46.99) six-pack
Pre-arrival ~ due Nov. 11th.Rancia is usually my favorite wine of Tuscany in more vintages than not. It runs circles around other Chianti Classicos and Brunellos costing three times as much, making it one of the greatest values in Italian wine - period. In terms of age-worthiness and complexity only the very best Brunello di Montalcinos can stand alongside Rancia after 15-30 years or more in the cellar. I’m still enjoying the 1985 and 1990 Rancia in my cellar. “Darker fruit on the nose with walnut, spice box, incense and espresso bean, too. Medium-bodied, firm and structured with polished tannins and a creamy, compact mid-palate. Quality dark oak spice throughout. Long and rich.” - 95 James Suckling

2011 Contrade di Taurasi (Cantine Lonardo), Taurasi, Vigne d’Alto, Campania, Italy $66.99 bottle / $377.94($62.99) six-pack
This is like great traditional Barbaresco if grown in volcanic soil.  A beautiful mature Barbaresco-like nose gives way to the mineral and earth-driven palate.  Powerful, yet elegant and complex, the Contrade di Taurasi demonstrates the nobleness of Aglianico grown in the volcanic soils of Mount Vesuvius.  At eleven years old, this is a very food-friendly full-bodied wine is already mesmerizing. "Deep ruby with a purple tinge. Reticent nose at first, only hinting at dark cherry, sassafras and sandalwood. Then very concentrated and dense, displaying almost opulent, sweet nuances of oaky torrefaction to the coffee, cocoa and dark cherry flavors. This outstanding Taurasi finishes extremely long, rich and seamless.” 94+ Wine Advocate & “Deep ruby with a purples tinge. Reticent nose at first, only hinting at dark cherry, sassafras and sandalwood. Then very concentrated and dense, displaying almost opulent nuances of coffee, cocoa and dark cherry flavors. This outstanding Taurasi finishes extremely long, rich and seamless. Drink through 2026. 94+ Vinous

2014 Cantina Sociale Di Gattinara, DOCG Gattinara, Alto-Piemonte, Italy $39.89
Just released: 100% Nebbiolo aged in botti for eight years from the tiny Alto-Piemonte region of Gattinara.  Classic old-school ethereal nose & beautiful aromatics. The palate is elegant, almost delicate.  There is a hidden kernel of red fruit behind the refined tannins with leather and autumnal notes adding interest. It’s very expressive now and should age well with its sneaky suave tannins. 13% alcohol. Crazy deal.  Sorry, super limited.

2021 Tre Monti, Albana Secco, Vigna Rocca, Romagna, Italy $16.99
This is a singular white wine. Tre Monte, about a 20-minute train ride east of Bologna, was started in the early 70s by Thea and Sergio Navacchia with their sons, Vittorio and David taking the reins in 1989 (That’s Vittorio on the left and Sergio in the middle of the picture).  The Navacchia family are an amazing people, and some of the most enjoyable and gracious hosts I’ve ever met. They farm and make wine with a very thoughtful purpose that comes through in this wine. And wow, the aromas explode from the glass with ripe apricot, orange peel and dried herb notes. The palate is rich and full-bodied, as is typical of Albana, with an exotic texture from 15 days of skin contact (but none of the funkiness sometimes associated with skin contact whites). Flavors of apricot, peach, and almonds mingle with fresh acidity in this scintillating dry white wine. Enjoy as a head-turning aperitif, or with all sorts of antipasti, dried fruits and cheeses, seafood, squash dishes, and roast chicken or duck. This would also be at home on your Thanksgiving table.

2020 Thibaud Boudignon, Anjou Blanc, Loire Valley, France $42.89
Last year, we introduced you to the great Savennieres of rockstar winemaker Thibaud Boudignon. We sold out of both of those wines within two weeks despite their $85 price tags. Here, we feature another great Boudignon wine from the much less famous Anjou appellation, so the price tag is much friendlier despite the wine competing favorably with its Savennieres counterparts. This is 100% Chenin Blanc from the excellent 2020 vintage for Loire Valley Chenin. Aromas of almonds, beeswax, and honeysuckle slowly reveal themselves with a little aeration. The palate is dense and very concentrated with an indescribable sense of intensity and energy. Delicious now, this wine will continue to gain in complexity and mineral expression for at least a decade.
