Caymus 2009 Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

This family-owned and -operated estate vinified its first Cabernet Sauvignon in 1972 and has since earned a permanent place among Napa’s elite producers. Striving always for ever more perfect balance, Caymus blends mountain grown fruit, which adds power, with grapes from the valley floor, which lend a touch of feminine grace to this truly memorable […]

Harlan Estate 2007 Proprietary Red Wine

This Cabernet Sauvignon–based wine produced by Bill Harlan is an earth-shattering example of what California can produce. Dense, black, and balanced, this vintage will need some time to really show everything it has, but it is so delicious that you may not be able to wait. ($900)

DuMol 2008 Estate Pinot Noir

DuMol has a distinguished reputation for producing some of the most admired Burgundian-style wines in the United States; however, this 2008 Pinot might just be the best wine yet from this label. Deeply concentrated black cherry and perfumed plum aromas and flavors make a wine a holiday celebration its own right. ($100)

Château Pontet-Canet 2008 Pauillac

Classified as a Fifth Growth in 1855, this certified biodynamic Pauillac is considered in many vintages to be as sublime as the coveted First Growths and can be cellared for 50 years. The 2008 vintage possesses beautifully integrated essences of crème de cassis seasoned with notes of earth. ($100)

Vega-Sicilia 1990 Único Reserva Especial

Located in Ribera del Duero and owned by the Álvarez family since 1982, Vega-Sicilia is considered Spain’s greatest winery, thanks to the utterly unique character of the wines that issue from its tanks. The owners do not release wines on a timetable, but rather when they feel the vintages are ready to drink. ($400)

Diamond Creek 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Rock Terrace

Founded by the legendary Al Brounstein in 1967, Diamond Creek Vineyards, located on Diamond Mountain, was among the first producers in Napa Valley to bottle single-vineyard wines. Since 1968, Diamond Creek has focused exclusively on the production of Cabernet Sauvignon, and this particular release embodies the superb quality, character, structure, and balance that have made […]

Taylor Scion NV Very Old Port

Since 1825, Domaine Faiveley has produced spectacular Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from its grand cru and premier cru vineyards in Burgundy. Run by legendary manager Bernard Hervet, Faiveley is the largest family-owned domaine in all of Burgundy. ($180)

Carte Blanche 2009 Cabernet Napa Valley

Owned by Nicholas Allen, whose great-grandfather, Clarence Dillon, acquired Château Haut-Brion in 1935, this Napa estate turns out Bordeaux-style blends that reflect this family legacy. Producing fewer than 800 cases a year of Cabernet Sauvignon, Proprietary Red, Chardonnay, and Proprietary White, Carte Blanche celebrates its kinship with Haut-Brion. ($125)

Cheval des Andes 2006

Founded in 1999 and located in Mendoza, Argentina, Cheval des Andes is a collaboration between Terrazas de los Andes and Pierre Lurton of Bordeaux’s incomparable Château Cheval Blanc. Crafted from 100 percent Malbec, this wine unleashes on the palate sharp, intense flavors of black cherry and mocha java. ($70)
