2008 Armand Rousseau - Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru  
2008 Armand Rousseau - Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru

Red | Pinot Noir | France | Burgundy | 750ml

An ultra fresh and very pinot nose is nuanced by hints of Gevrey-style earth and a hint of forest floor that also is reflected by the cool, detailed and pliant middle weight flavors that possess good depth but also a mildly edgy finish where it’s not entirely clear that it will round out.

2008 Armand Rousseau - Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru  
2008 Armand Rousseau - Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru

Red | Pinot Noir | France | Burgundy | 750ml

Brightly redolent of fresh red currant and blackberry, accompanied by Lapsang tea, fennel, and maritime suggestions of brine and alkali, Rousseau’s 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers displays incipient creaminess, but at the same time, tartness on the palate, with an invigorating sense of fruit skin and fine-grained tannins that lead to a finish of impressive grip. Like the corresponding Lavaux St.-Jacques, this is refreshing but short on richness, and the superior smell in the empty glass confirms the degree to which it is presently a bit reduced. And here too, I can envision 8-10 years of interesting evolution.

The nose shows lovely rosehip, black cherry and black currant, with deep wood and vanilla spice. The wine has flavors of bing cherry and black fruits with a delicacy and finesse that is appealing and reminiscent of the structure and elegance of a great Bordeaux. The full fruit finish, supple, weighty tannins and long finish add to the complexity of this wine.

2008 Caymus - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Special Selection  
2008 Caymus - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Special Selection

Red | Cabernet Sauvignon | United States | California | 750ml

94

Dark youthful purple color. Nose of berries, cassis and brown spice - expresses crushingly rich, homemade, rustic yet supple characters. Flavors have nuance of ripe Cabernet grapes, cocoa, dark chocolate, vanilla and cassis. The abundant array of flavors is supported by fine grain "chocky" texture. This vintage exhibits a balance in abundant ripe tannins and serious fruit - grape skin extraction and French oak provides a tasting experience that begins delightful, broadens and expands on the palate - a brooding, supple, finely textured wine.

Beautifully crafted, rich, intense and powerful, yet supple, graceful and polished, offering a generous core of spicy blackberry, black licorice, wild berry and light cedary notes. Full-bodied and expressive, this is both approachable now and sure to improve for several years. Drink now through 2020. 15,618 cases made. Wine Spectator 94 Points

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection is the first example of this cuvee to include Merlot (about 14%) in the blend. The Merlot component has given the wine a cocoa/chocolate nuance to its black currant, licorice-infused fruit. The tannins are velvety soft and the wine is beautifully textured and full-bodied. It is ideal for drinking now and over the next 15 years. Wine Advocate 94 Points

2008 Chalone Vineyard - Chardonnay Estate Grown  
2008 Chalone Vineyard - Chardonnay Estate Grown

White | Chardonnay | United States | 750ml

92

Capturing the distinctive characteristics of the unique terroir, the 2008 Estate Chardonnay holds fragrant aromas of ripe pear, green apple, hazelnut, vanilla and baking spice. Bright fruit flavors glide across a lithe and supple midpalate, balanced by toasty oak and a creamy texture. The vineyard's limestone soils leave a distinct footprint with a crunchy rock minerality that persists through the middle and holds the finish. The fine balance of vibrant acids with weightier oak influences makes an excellent match to rich, creamy foods such as soft cheeses and chicken dishes with heavier sauces.

2008 Château Montrose - St.-Estèphe

Red | Bordeaux | France | Bordeaux | 750ml

One of the superstars of the vintage, this classic Montrose is not as showy or opulent as the 2010, 2009 or 2003, but it offers a dense purple color followed by gorgeously sweet black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with loamy, earthy, forest floor notes, a floral component and a long, full-bodied finish. The 2008 was fashioned from yields of 44 hectoliters per hectare which is slightly less than the 2010's 45 hectoliters per hectare. Forget it for 5-8 years and drink it over the following 20+ years.

One of the top successes of the vintage, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was harvested between October 8 and 24. The late harvest ensured perfect ripeness as evidenced by the sweet bouquet of black cherries, lead pencil shavings, cassis and subtle barbecue smoke. Well-balanced with good acidity, ripe tannins, medium to full body and a layered mouthfeel, this excellent 2008 can be drunk now and over the next 15+ years.

2008 Domaine d'Aupilhac - Proprietary Red

Red | Proprietary Red | France | Vin de Pays | 750ml

Importer Kermit Lynch says:  “Since its arrival three weeks ago, this has been a favorite around the house, and it is fun (at least to me) to answer the question, Why? 1. Its pleasures are so accessible. 2. The flavors are quite Mediterranean, and at home we do a lot of Mediterranean-style cooking. 3. It is medium-bodied, yet still seems rich and meaty.”

2008 Domaine de Fondreche - Fayard  
2008 Domaine de Fondreche - Fayard

Red | Proprietary Red | France | Cotes du Ventoux | 750ml

"The 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre blend, the 2008 Fayard (which includes de-classified Nadal in 2008, as that wine was not made) is a firmer wine with good minerality, hints of sweet and sour cherries, raspberries, and blacker fruits, with some spicy wood in the background. The wine has good weight, elegance, and freshness [...]. 

One of the consistently superb estates in the Cotes du Ventoux, Domaine de Fondreche offers very high quality and reasonable prices. The creation of Sebastian Vincenti and Manou Barthelemy, these wines are bursting with fruit and have loads of minerality and aromatics. They are beautiful efforts representing the best of what a young generation of French producers can do. The estate is just under 100 acres in size and is now 100% biodynamically farmed. As Sebastian Vincenti told me, 2008 was a very strong vintage for the whites but presented many challenges with the reds." Wine Advocate (88)

Red | Chateauneuf du Pape | France | Rhone | 750ml

Still tight, with the core of cherry and red currant fruit held in check by a mix of lightly firm sandalwood, spice, licorice root and warm stone flavors. Mulled fig and cocoa notes check in on the grippy finish. A rare backward style 2008 that will need some cellaring to round into form.

Medium red. Redcurrant, plum and cherry aromas lifted by a floral topnote. Sweet but a bit youthfully clenched, showing attractive aromatic spices but with its fruit in the deep background. Quite tight today but not hard. Finishes with serious tannic clout. This will require some patience.
