Raise a (really) nice glass!
We always love recommending great values (aka wines under $20), but this time of year we often get requests for something a little more special. Here are 3 truly special wines that are sure to impress any wine lover on your list. We have an incredible wine selection right now in the store, so please feel free to stop in the store and let us help you pick out that perfect bottle.
Cheers!

DOMINUS 2013
$300/bottle dominus-2012-part-2
The perfect wine for any Napa Valley wine collector. Dominus is no longer available at a whole sale level and we only have 12 bottles available. The estate is owned by the Mouiex family–owners of Chateau Petrus–considered by most to be the greatest of all the Bordeaux.
The wine itself got a perfect score of 100 points from Robert Parker. Full-bodied and opulent, with no hard edges, a seamless integration of acidity and a richness that will last for another 25-30 years.

DONATELLA CELLINI COLOMBINI BRUNELLO
$65/bottledonatella-cellini-brunello
 
Most of the Brunello from the highly sought after and collectable 2010 vintage is long gone, but we recently were able to score a few cases of this impeccably well made wine. This is some of Donatella’s finest work and she already made some of the best.
Made in a bold, yet softer style, the wine has lovely complex oak tones and hints of cinnamon and clove. With ripe berry flavors, it’s enjoyable now, but remarkably balanced structure makes it enjoyable for long term cellaring, too.

GAJA SITO MORESCO
$79/bottlegaja-sito-moresco
The wines from the legendary Gaja estate are not only considered among the very best in Italy, but the entire world. The finest vineyard sites, meticulous work in those vineyards and an unparalleled commitment to excellence.
In one word, the wine is brilliant. It’s a remarkable combination of richness and finesse, with deep red fruit flavors and silky tannins. Perfect for collectors and perfect for your very own self indulgence. Treat yourself!
