Top 10 List

Top Ten New Arrivals for October!

J L Chave Mon Coeur Cotes du Rhone 2011

This is a blend of Grenache and Syrah from purchased fruit that has wonderful texture, layers of fruit, and character. While it has plenty of weight, the true success of this wine is all the flavor that bubbles just under the surface.  

Domaine Le Fay d’Homme Muscadet 2011

The Fay d'Homme is a pure expression of the Gneiss soil. The acidity is present but not aggressive, with expression of white fruits, citrus and blossoms. The wine is immediately very well balanced and enjoyable right after bottling.

Aquitania Cabernet 2011

This delicious Cabernet has some SERIOUS firepower behind it. It has an elegant Macul nose that combines fresh red fruit, cassis, dried herbs, and red pepper. The palate is complete with smooth tannins and loads of red fruit.

Hecht & Bannier Languedoc Blanc 2012

A blend of Piquepoul and Roussanne, the 2012 Languedoc Blanc is a fresh, vibrant white. The Piquepoul Blanc brings this crunchy and vivid character and the Roussanne's citrus fruits and white flowers produce this striking wine with lovely aromatics and a full silky mouth-feel.

Billard Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2012

The 2012 is a layered with fresh cherries and red berries with touches of dried herbs and spice. The weight sits nicely on the palate and finishes with a nice wave of acidity. Bravo Billard. Bravo...

La Liquiere Faugeres Les Amandiers 2012

Les Amandiers is made from young vines resulting in fresh berry aromas : red currant, strawberry, black currant. A pleasant and tender wine, offering great aromatic freshness.

Banshee Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2012

Charming aromatically, this Chardonnay immediately hints toward Asian pear and apple flavors with an underlying cut of lemon framed by hints of Tahitian vanilla from fine grained French oak. It offers hints of more tropical flavors without ever fully realizing them and finishes with ample verve.

Barco de Piedra 2011

"It exhibits notes of flowers, licorice, new saddle leather, black currants and cherries. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, complex and on a fast maturity curve, it should be consumed over the next 2-3 years." 91 Points, the Wine Advocate, #202 Aug 2012

Ludovicus 2011

Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, smoky minerals and white pepper, plus a suggestion of dried rose. Silky on entry, then firmer in the middle, with flavors of red and black fruits and floral pastille. The floral quality repeats on the lively, subtly powerful finish.

Rickshaw Cabernet 2011

Dark plum, coffee grounds, and cassis. This base is buttressed by a few mountain sources that provide a streak of red fruit, verve, and structure.

Glen Moray Port Cask

Review: "There are certain whiskies that seem meant to be consumed in the solitary part of your afternoon. The kind of dram that brings comfort and warmth after, say, an extended hike, or a presentation that drained you. A drink that is the only companion you'll need while you recharge. One of those for me, ever since a lovely late afternoon in Edinburgh's Bow Bar, has been Glen Moray.


This Speyside distillery has been producing whisky since 1897, and continues to produce quality whiskies at an insane value. This Glen Moray Port Cask Finish, for example, which takes the Glen Moray Classic (aged for an average of 7 years) and ages it for 8 months in a Tawny Port cask, goes for about $25 in the Chicago area. For that price, I wasn't expecting much, but as I sipped while preparing to review, I found myself almost falling for this whisky.

The color is a pale amber, akin to an apple cider. It has a nose of toasted vanilla and light oak, along with hints of leather, dark cocoa, and berries. The palate is lemon zest, toffee, and cinnamon-and yes, a definite touch of wine. And the finish, which is easily my favorite part, is lingering, sustained. It releases honey, spice, and rich chocolate, and remains long after the last sip has been consumed.

I highly recommend letting the drink breathe a bit before drinking, but it's a rewarding, affordable, and quite interesting single malt."
