Red | Malbec | Argentina | Mendoza | 750ml
Vibrant red color with aromas of red cherries, raspberries, and violets wafting from the glass along with notes of toasty oak. On the palate, the fresh berry flavors mingle with spice notes and there's a hint of soft caramel on the finish. This is a creamy, medium-bodied and well structured wine that is incredibly full of life.
White | Cortese | Italy | Piedmont | 750ml
Sourced from the estate’s oldest Cortese vines, averaging over 60 years of age, these are also among the oldest in the appellation. Intense lemon citrus fruit with floral and flinty notes on the nose, comparable to the best wines from Chablis.
"A crisp, mouthwatering, medium-weight version, with apple, grapefruit and almond notes. Stays refreshing, ending on a bitter citrus peel flavor." Wine Spectator (88 Points)
Red | Cabernet Sauvignon | United States | Napa Valley | 750ml
The 2009 Ladera Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon produced a fruit-driven wine with an intense nose and flavors, great texture and seamless balance. Aromas of ripe plum and black cherries are complemented by notes of cedar and anise. The palate is layered with black fruits, sweet oak spice and ripe tannins that linger to a long velvety finish.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (from Keyes Vineyard) is a big, broad shouldered wine loaded with black fruit, smoke and licorice. Chocolate, blackberries, cinnamon, licorice and spices are wrapped around the plush, muscular finish. Wine Advocate 92 Points
Good deep ruby. Rich aromas of currant and graphite minerality. Lush, round and large-scaled, with strong rocky and mineral qualities adding interest to its very sexy flavors of black raspberry and spices. Dry, classic, powerful cabernet whose broad tannins are amazingly supple for Mount Veeder. Finishes subtle and extremely long. An excellent vintage for this bottling, which is from vines planted at 1,700 feet. International Wine Cellar 94 PointsThe 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder (from Veeder Peak) flows onto the palate with layers of dark, mineral-infused fruit. Graphite, cassis, blackberries, spices and new leather are some of the nuances that take shape in the glass. This is at once open and approachable, but also quite intense. Wine Advocate 93 Points

Randy Dunn's Feather has an intriguing floral component, and the aromas are complex and intense, though the wine is wound up tight. Let it breathe and it delivers elegant, focused flavors, precisely defined berry and cassis fruit, with a long and harmonious finish.Crafted by Napa veteran Randy Dunn, the Long Shadows 2009 Feather – pure-Cabernet Sauvignon relying heavily fruit from The Benches and Sagemoor’s Weinbau – offers scents and palate-staining impressions of dark berries, spice cake, and tobacco. Thanks to bitter-edged herbal and damp earth elements it is, metaphorically speaking, cooler not to mention less confectionary than most of its stablemates. Wine Advocate 92 Points
Red | Merlot | United States | Washington | 750ml
This red is round, generous and expressive, offering plum, loganberry, cherry and clove flavors that pick up hints of loam and floral character as the finish tightens its focus. Impressive for its length and deft balance. Best from 2013 through 2019. 1,994 cases made. Wine Spectator 95 Points - #11 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012Michel Rolland’s Long Shadows wine is 83% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Bay leaf and pretty herb scents introduce a wine that remains tightly wound. Black cherry and cassis flavors are set in a frame of smoky espresso. The tannins are polished, and the finish is deliciously long. Wine Enthusiast 93 PointsBright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black cherry, melted licorice and minerals. Sweet, ripe and strong, with a distinctly sappy quality to its black cherry and sexy oak flavors. This struck me as more masculine than the 2008 version and every bit as fresh--and in need of longer bottle aging. Finishes classically dry and long, with solid backbone. Stephen Tanzer's Int'l Wine Cellar 92 Points It’s a blending grape,” Shoup continues to maintain about Merlot, “and has to be grown in really special ways to achieve greatness standing alone” – he should surely have added: “in special places” – but, nonetheless, he felt that given its status as something of a signature grape for Washington, he should (to hear him tell, with considerable effort) persuade Michel Rolland to render a Merlot showcase, of which 2009 Pedestal is the latest installment, prominently featuring Red Mountain fruit, while involving small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and (for the first time) Malbec. Scents of cherry preserves, mint, peat, espresso roast, toasted coconut and caramelized resin, presage a correspondingly complex, torrefied and confitured palate impression. The polish and plushness here are impressive as is the wine’s sheer sweet and smoky length, though a hint of heat does creep into the finish from 14.9% alcohol. This definitely should be served no warmer than 65 degrees Fahrenheit. I imagine it will remain fresh for at least the better part of a decade. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91 Points

Red | Pinot Noir | France | Burgundy | 750ml
Maison Louis Jadot vinified the production of different growers to yield a red Savigny les Beaune of medium-deep colour. The bouquet is elegant, quite powerful with morello cherry, blackcurrant and raspberry aromas. Supple, it has a light, fine structure. This wine is often characterised as a feminine wine. This wine will be perfect with any light dishes, red or white meat or feathered game.

A blend of two-thirds barrel fermented and barrel aged with some aged in stainless steel tanks with wooden staves and the rest totally in stainless steel, all of which was put through malolactic fermentation. The idea of blending steel fermented juice with barrel fermented wines seems to have produced a freshness and vibrancy. Bright with notes of orange blossoms, spring flowers, honeysuckle and white peaches, this floral-styled, medium to full-bodied effort will please those looking for Chardonnays with less than 14% alcohol (this offering has 13.8%).

Produced from 100% old Wente clones, the light gold-colored 2009 Chardonnay Ma Princesse offers beautiful aromas of tangerines, mangos, sweet white currants and quince, a creamy, full-bodied, voluptuous texture and gorgeous acidity. This exceptional group of wines is limited in quantity (from a low of 125 cases to a high of 400+ cases for several of the Chardonnays) cuvees. This is the visionary project of Luc Morlet, a Frenchman who worked for Peter Michael and still consults there with his brother, Nicolas.Wine Advocate 94-97 Points
