New Arrivals

The summer doldrums are now behind us, and we're busy stocking up for the fall crush. With new wines rolling in every day, we thought we'd put together a list of some of the arrivals we're most excited about. From a new vintage of Tenuta dell'Ornellaia's bargain stunner - Le Volte, to a 97+ point Tete de Cuvee Champagne, there's something here for every palate and every budget!

2017 Steininger Zweigelt Novemberlese
750ml | SKU 79487 
WE
89
A hint of tar and cinnamon add spice to the ripe cherry on the nose. This is juicy, rounded and easy but stays light and beautifully fresh.
2012 Chateau Vieille Cure Fronsac
750ml | SKU 79918 
WA
91
VM
91
Arguably the bright, shining star of Fronsac these days. The 2012 is a knock-out, with an inky purple color and sweet cassis and kirsch notes as well as some licorice, mocha and earth. This is outrageously fine wine that sells for a song. It is a major sleeper of the vintage.
2007 Ruinart - Brut Blanc de Blancs Dom Ruinart
750ml | SKU 79669 
VM
97+
A striking, tightly-coiled wine, the 2007 Dom Ruinart will leave readers week at the knees. the 2007 has the potential to go down as one of the great Dom Ruinarts. Readers who can grab the 2007 won’t want to miss it.
2018 Huet - Vouvray Le Mont Demi Sec
750ml | SKU 79542 
WA
94
From green clay and pebbly silex soils, the 2018 Vouvray Le Mont Demi-Sec offers a clear, intense but elegant and sublime nose that intermixes ripe fruit and ginger aromas with spicy-flinty notes. A gorgeous, highly energetic wine.
2018 Domaine Palon - Gigondas
750ml | SKU 79891 
JD
90
Marked by hints of peppery spice, dusty cherries and supple tannins, the 2018 Gigondas is already approachable. It's medium to full-bodied, with a silky feel and decent depth, making for a fine, early-drinking example of the appellation.
2017 Guillaume Gonnet - Chateauneuf du Pape Bel Ami
750ml | SKU 79894 
WA
90
A bit more Syrah-dominated than usual, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Bel Ami—a 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah—boasts aromas of tar, black olive and plum. There's a slightly roasted character to the fruit this vintage, but this full-bodied wine remains supple and silky in texture.
2017 Dr. Hermann - Erdener Treppchen Kabinett #6
750ml | SKU 79985 
WA
94
Picked in the last week of September and vinified in a classic fuder, the 2017 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett –6– is a clear, fresh, ripe and flinty Riesling with racy acidity and a piquant, lush finish. this is a serious and tensioned Kabinett with a long, complex finish.
2018 Ktima Mitravelas - Assyrtiko
750ml | SKU 79478  While most closely associated with Santorini, assyrtiko is widely planted throughout Greece. This rendition from Ktima Mitravelas in the Peloponnese packs on a little more weight than the island wines, but retains a solid core of flinty minerality. There aren't many quality assyrtikos out there at this price point, but this one is a real winner!
2015 Castello di Bossi - Chianti Classico Riserva Berardo
750ml | SKU 79617 
WA
91
this wine exhibits fine silkiness with aromas of wild berry, spice, crushed stone and even a touch of grilled herb or green olive. There is a drying note on the bouquet that recalls the crushed rocks and limestone clay soils of Chianti Classico. Some 60,000 bottles were made. You get great value here.
2017 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia - Le Volte Super Tuscan
750ml | SKU 79558 
WA
92
Lots of big, dark fruit and a lack of water in the grapes define the unique personality of the 2017 Le Volte dell'Ornellaia. This is a highly extracted and succulent expression that delivers abundant fruit sweetness. The key to this vintage was waiting for proper ripeness, says estate manager and winemaker Axel Heinz. 'The grapes continued to get smaller throughout the summer,' he says. That lack of water resulted in very concentrated fruit, giving this entry-level wine a rich and modern feel as a result.
2016 Dog Point - Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Section 94
750ml | SKU 79522 
WA
92
To emphasize its difference from the classic Sauvignon Blanc, Dog Point's 2016 Section 94 steadfastly refuses to note the varietal on the front label. Which, I should note for TTB purposes, is actually the back label. Whatever. It continues to be a benchmark for the so-called alternative style of Sauvignon Blanc, being barrel-fermented with high solids and indigenous yeasts. Wild notes of green onions and sweat dominate the nose at the moment, but I expect them to mellow with time in the bottle and reveal the underlying stone fruit and grapefruit elements. It's medium to full-bodied but fresh and vibrant, with a crisp, citrusy finish. Unlike most Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs, the Section 94 and similar wines can drink well for up to a decade or more from the vintage.
2016 Lismore - Syrah Cape South Coast
750ml | SKU 79604 
VM
93
It has a perfumed bouquet of mulberry, blueberry and crushed iris aromas, quite Côte-Rôtie in style and certainly very well defined. Excellent.
2012 Cvne - Rioja Imperial Gran Reserva
750ml | SKU 79962 
VM
94
Vivid ruby-red. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe raspberry, cherry-cola, potpourri and exotic spices, with a suave vanilla topnote and a smoky mineral flourish. Sweet and broad in the mouth, offering lush red fruit, spicecake, mocha and coconut flavors that steadily tighten up on the back half. Finishes extremely long and spicy, with a resonating floral quality, well-knit tannins and lingering oak spice notes.
2014 Cvne - Rioja Reserva
750ml | SKU 79963 
WS
91
This red is fresh and juicy, with good density on the palate. Black cherry and plum flavors mingle with toasty and mineral notes, supported by light tannins and balsamic acidity. The fruit is spot-lit, while the wine remains harmonious and graceful. Drink now through 2026
2018 Liquid Farm - Rose Santa Rita Hills
750ml | SKU 79675 
WE
91
This Mourvèdre-based pink wine begins with rounded aromas of strawberry, pluot and damp earth on the nose. There is tremendous tension to the sip, where snappy red-plum flavors meet with a compelling element of earthy funk.
2015 Lemelson - Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Thea's Selection
750ml | SKU 79824 
WS
91
Expressive black cherry and forest floor aromas open to refined and balanced dark raspberry, bitter chocolate and spice flavors that finish with minerally tannins. Drink now through 2023.
2016 Ch Ste Michelle - Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Indian Wells
750ml | SKU 79678 
WE
89
The aromas bring notes of macerated cherry, exotic spice, dusty earth, dried herb, vanilla, mushroom and dried black currant. Dense blue and black fruit flavors follow, with a firm lick of tannins backing it up.
2016 Ch Ste Michelle - Chardonnay Columbia Valley Indian Wells
750ml | SKU 79679
