Williams Selyem 2007 Litton Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $100
A spectacular Pinot Noir, but a very young one, and extremely dry. It’s a wine of great structure, with rich acids and tannins framing extraordinarily complex flavors of grilled cherries, strawberries and raspberries, with complicating notes of cola, pomegranates, orange zest, anise, dusty Asian spices and smoky sandalwood. A truly great Pinot Noir from a great…  — S.H.  (2/1/2010)

Charles Smith 2006 Royal City Syrah (Columbia Valley (WA))

  1. $80
In 2005 Charles Smith introduced three high-end Syrahs. In 2006 Smith has made a wine better than each of these, by combining them into a single wine—Royal City Syrah. Rich scents of purple fruit, smoked meat, cedar, lead pencil, moist earth and so on proclaim a wine with genuine gravitas. There is nothing missing, from the first sniff to the last sip, the wine…  — P.G.  (12/1/2009)

Shafer 2004 Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon (Stags Leap District)

  1. $215
A perfect score has to be considered in the context of its region. Shafer’s 2004 Hillside Select is tremendous as a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that competes with its peers at the highest levels. It’s always a fabulous wine, but in warm 2004, Shafer’s amphitheater vineyard sheltered the grapes, ripening them to perfection yet protecting the “iron fist in a…  — S.H.  (3/1/2009)

Château Latour 2005 Red (Pauillac)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $2000
A great wine, the summation of a great vintage in Bordeaux. The core of richness, the dense, bone-dry tannins, the black currants, red berries and black plum skins are the elements, but it’s the way they have been integrated that makes this such an impressive wine. There is great elegance as well, a fabulous counterpoint to such power. Cellar for at least 15 years…  — R.V.  (6/1/2008)

Château Pétrus 2005 Red (Pomerol)

  1. $6000
As so often, Pétrus has the ability to charm and impress, to seduce and overwhelm. This 2005, one of the greatest vintages from this great chateau, is massive and concentrated, with flavors of ripe black figs, chocolate and dark plums. Put that all together and the result is the utmost deliciousness, freshness and elegance. A major wine. Imported by Etablissements…  — R.V.  (6/1/2008)

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia 2007 Masseto Merlot (Toscana)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $460
A perfect wine from a classic vintage, the 2007 Masseto (100% Merlot from a 17-acre vineyard of the same name) opens with an unabashedly opulent bouquet of delicious blackberry, cherry, chocolate, vanilla, exotic spice and cinnamon. Masseto excels both in terms of quality of fruit and winemaking and delivers plush, velvety tannins and an extra long, supple finish…  — M.L.  (12/15/2010)

Viña Sastre 2006 Pesus Tempranillo Blend (Ribera del Duero)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $750
If there’s any such thing as the perfect Spanish red, Pesus is it. A blend of 80% Tempranillo with other grapes including Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine sees 200% new oak, resulting in a thick, dark, tannic beauty that bubbles over with toast, cola, mint, chocolate and spice aromas. The mouth is sheer heaven; a mile deep in terms of berry flavor and more, but…  — M.S.  (10/1/2010)

Cardinale 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $200
Tasted in a flight of great and famous Napa wines, this Cardinale stood at the head of the pack. Starts with a very fine nose of cedar, cassis, ripe blackberries and violets, then turns dramatic and refined in the mouth. Shows vast depth and length, with the finish a full minute of sweet fruits and spices. Marvelous tannins, so plush and elegant, so powerful yet…  — S.H.  (3/1/2010)
