Here we’ll list a selection of highly-rated, hard to find wines that would serve as excellent additions to your home collection.

 Collectors Room     Marchesi di Barolo Cannubi Barolo 2010

     95pts Wine Advocate

From Barolo’s most celebrated (and recently expanded) single-vineyard, the 2010 Barolo Cannubi is a deeply floral and elegant expression with sharp contours that give      the wine a sense of focus and definition. Pressed violets and dried jasmine lift from the glass and with just a few swirls, the wine begins to reveal red cherry, licorice,              balsam herb, moist earth and anise seed. This is a great wine from Marchesi di Barolo, one of the region’s legacy producers. Drink: 2017-2028.

Alvaro Palacios Finca Dofi 2012

94 pts Wine Advocate

The 2012 Finca Dofí is mostly Garnacha with a mere 4% Cariñena. The destemmed and lightly crushed grapes fermented in oak vats with natural yeast. It went through malolactic fermentation in oak barrel (without the addition of any yeasts or bacteria) where the wine matured for some 16 months. As the other 2012s, there is a Mediterranean character inherent to the vintage. Aromatic herbs and spices are very evident here, the fruit is ripe, but leans more toward the red than black cherries. The palate reveals sophisticated tannins and very good balance between elegance and power.

 Collectors Room      Louis Latour Chambertin Cuvée Héritiers Latour 2007

     93 pts Wine Spectator

An intense red, powerful and elegant at once, exhibiting black cherry, chocolate, licorice and mineral flavors. This just keeps building on the palate and won’t be denied,               culminating in a long, chewy, licorice-tinged finish. Best from 2012 through 2025. 280 cases made.

    $229.99 / 750ml

Quintarelli Amarone 200310578458 Collectors Room

94 pts Wine Enthusiast

Quintarelli is the seminal figure in modern amarone production.  His hallmark in the industry has always been the deep complexity he achieves in his wines, and this 2003 bottling is no exception. Few winemakers in the region can achieve spicy and herbaceous notes on the this level without being the least bit heavyhanded or syrupy. While certainly drinkeable now, this excpetional bottle of amarone will continue to develop in the cellar for years to come.

Chateau de Beauc rvv 2012 macro 10215 640 Collectors Roomastel Vielles Vignes Blanc 2012

97 pts Wine Advocate

Made from a single parcel of Roussanne vines planted in 1909, this old vine offering from the storied Chateau de Beaucastel has been called “the greatest white produced in the Southern Rhone”. Lush tropical notes play over a strong mineral background that gives this wine its unparalleled balance. It is legendary for hitting its stride in the cellar after 15 years, giving this beauty a drinking window well into the late 2020s.

$144.99/750ml

Lakoya Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

94 pts Vinous Antonio Galloni

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain, from Keyes Vineyard, is one of the most powerful wines in the Lokoya lineup. Firm tannins support a core of explosive dark blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, menthol and licorice, all of which come to life in a decidedly powerful, super-intense expression of Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. There is no shortage of personality here. Full-bodied and vibrant, the take-no-holds 2010 is going to require patience, but it is beautiful, even today. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.

$449.99/750ml
