THE L E GE N D S
OF T H E FA LL
It has been 25 years since our first day in business. In celebration, our Legends of the Fall case this year recognizes the historic wines that set the foundation for the high-scoring and iconic wines that followed. These leaders were cult before the idea of a cult wine had even been coined. This is one of our most popular offerings, reliably selling out before the holidays. A collection of 12 elite, artisan, collectible Cabernet Sauvignons that have made Napa the world-class region it is today. There is simply no better gift to yourself, a friend, or a cherished colleague. This delivery-inclusive collection comes in a handsome branded Bounty Hunter Gift box that makes an impression of its own. WS
We are proud of the track record for our flagship brand. Andy Beckstoffer’s and To Kalon vineyard is Napa Valley royalty, first recognized for its greatness in the 19th century. It is one of the most purely alluvial vineyard sites in the valley, making them true Napa Valley Grand Crus. Over 15 vintages have been crafted expressly for Bounty Hunter, and they hang with the very best of Napa Valley. Integrity, quality, honesty and trust are the core values of Bounty Hunter and the mantra for the Justice label.
‘15 Beringer ‘Private Reserve’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
One of the first wineries in the Napa Valley, Beringer has led the way since the 1800’s. The Private Reserve is their attempt to make one of Napa’s finest Cabernets. We and James Suckling think they have succeeded, “The spice and walnut aromas are so enticing...Full-bodied, dense and layered with fantastic tension and seamless tannins.” Is it any wonder why Berringer has been considered one of the greats of Napa for so long?
‘16 Beaulieu Vineyard ‘Georges de Latour Private Reserve’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
BV ‘Georges de Latour’ Private Reserve Cabernet has been lauded as Napa’s original “cult Cabernet” – the one that started it all. Nearly seventy six years since its initial launch, the 2016 Cabernet is built to age for decades. The Wine Advocate notes “warm cassis, crushed red and black plums and kirsch with floral hints of roses and candied violets” – more of that classic Rutherford fruit! A stunning benchmark Napa Cabernet that continues to deliver some of the best wine in the Valley. Cheers to that!
‘16 Quintessa ‘Proprietary Red’ Napa Valley
The quintessence of Rutherford’s east side, this 2016 will make you swoon with its aromas of crème de cassis, blueberries and black cherries. The Wine Advocate notes “The profound black and blue fruits build slowly in the mouth, achieving great energy and depth with a beautiful velvety frame, finishing long and perfumed.” It’s a Napa Valley first growth in our book! This could be Quintessa’s best vintage yet!
‘17 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville-Napa Valley Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon is a benchmark of Oakville, a stellar track record, formidable location, and great vintage pedigree all add up to another winner. This is the big, bold, unapologetic style of in your face Cabernet that we love, mixed berry fruit, lightly toasted oak, sweet licorice, it is well-structured and polished. However, be careful serving this to unseasoned drinkers’, it will get them hooked.
‘15 Lithology Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
The product of a Napa Valley “dream team”— Philippe Melka, Michel Rolland, and Matt Sands—how could this wine be anything but extraordinary? Sourced from iconic vineyards in Oakville, Rutherford, and St. Helena, this is a beauty, blooming from the glass with fresh and dried blackcurrants, mocha, and poached black cherries. We have a scant allocation to share with you from this thoroughly exciting, emerging cult!
‘13 Heitz ‘Martha’s Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
‘15 Poetic Justice ‘Beckstoffer To Kalon’ Red Wine, Napa Valley
Since 1966 Heitz Martha’s Vineyard has been one of the most recognized vineyards in Napa. There is an easy charm to this wine, exuding sweet blackberries, ripe cherry, cocoa powder, and mint leaf as it demurely opens up in the glass. Take patience with this wine, its shyness is not a lack of character rather a hidden strength that grows with time. WS
‘15 Caymus ‘Special Selection’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Napa Valley superstar, Chuck Wagner has done it again; he’s produced one of the finest Special Selections we’ve seen in years. Caymus Special Selection is the only wine to be named Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year - TWICE. Could this highly rated 2015 vintage become the 3rd? This unapologetic hedonistic style is layered with black cherry, figs, boysenberry, cassis and dusty spice notes.
‘14 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
While many wineries with Silver Oak’s track record and feverish demand are content to rest on their laurels and coast, this Oakville institution has invested millions in making their flagship Napa wine better than ever—and it shows in their terrific 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet. It boasts aromas and flavors of coconut, candied huckleberry, black cherry, spicy mocha, and Chambord. It’s a classic!
‘16 Robert Mondavi ‘To Kalon Reserve’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
It doesn’t get any better than this for Cab lovers. The 2016 is a brooding, dense and structured wine that delivers concentration and backbone that will allow for 30 years of cellaring – if you can holdout that long! The Wine Advocate adds, “Its deep purple color is followed by rocking notes of blackberries, black cherries, smoke tobacco, black licorice, and crushed rocks.” It’s been a great 25 years offering this Cabernet treasure to our customers and here’s to another 25 more! WA 95 JS ‘16 Shafer ‘One Point Five’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley
Shafer’s “One Point Five” is 100% Stags Leap Cabernet from their estate and honors the combined one and a half lifetimes of experience of father John Shafer and son Doug Shafer. The wine is another huge success in 2016, and as The Wine Advocate proclaimed, it “gives up intense Black Forest cake, blackberry pie and blackcurrant cordial scents with hints of licorice, eucalyptus, espresso, tar and chargrilled beef.” Consistently one of the finest cabernets from Stags Leap each year.
‘16 Cakebread ‘Benchlands Select’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Coming from prime vineyard sites in Oakville and Rutherford, this is fantastic Cabernet with Reserve level fruit. Jeb Dunnuck adds “It’s similarly inky colored and has terrific, flowery blue and black fruits, loads of incense, spice, and tobacco, full body, building tannins, and a great, great finish.” A spectacular wine that has earned its spot in our Legends of the Fall collection!

Macallan ‘Rare Cask’ Single Malt Scotch Whisky • Highland With thousands of barrels maturing in their warehouses, Macallan’s Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno was tasked with culling out sherry oak casks that deliver intense character on all fronts. What he was left with represented less than just 1% of their casks. With a high-proportion of first-fill sherry malts aged from 17-21 years, Rare Cask yields opulent, yet soft aromas of vanilla, chocolate, nutmeg and clove. On the palate this malt’s age shines bright, with deep raisin notes tempered by nutty sherry and stone fruit that carry over into the warm, zesty finish. As long-time Macallan enthusiasts, this is simply one of the finest bottlings we have ever tasted.
Arome Founder’s Reserve 28-year Rum We have found the ultimate expression of luxury rum. Produced by a maestero ronero with more than 50 years in the business and aged 28 - 34 years. Rum ARÔME weaves complex aromas of toffee, baking spice, old-leather and walnut oil seamlessly together and every whiff brings something new. A bottle that exudes sophistication from start to finish, you’ll find a decadent palate with silky smooth texture sporting loads of spice, coffee, and banana all accented by a deep caramel undertone. Bottled in a stunning decanter with a beautiful box, this will look incredible on your back bar.
Gran Patron Burdeos Anejo The ‘Gran Daddy’ of them all. Burdeos (which means Bordeaux in Spanish) brings a new spin on classic, mature tequila… We can tell you this has got ‘First Growth’ written all over it after being finished in Bordeaux wine casks from a mystery Chateau. With remarkable silky texture, notes of oak, raisins, dried fig, and pure agave, this brings you to tequila nirvana with every sip. If you’re thinking of giving the gift of all gifts look no further – it doesn’t get any better than this.

The single greatest sparkling wine in the world, and the only wine that actually talks to you. It murmurs lightly through its effervescence: Sophistication, Celebration, Refreshment, Luxury. It is the sort of whisper that can be heard across an entire room. These stalwart Champagne houses speak loudest with pedigree and recognition. Dom Perignon, named after the famous monk who is reputed to have said “Come quickly, I am tasting the stars.”, is perfect for Holiday cheer. These Champagnes can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere, but it are best shared among friends. What better time than the Holidays to let fly a few corks and enjoy the fluid fizziness.
‘07 Ruinart ‘Dom Ruinart’ Blanc de Blanc A beautiful wine with minerality, toast and tight acidity mingling with ripe meyer lemon and green apple. Impeccably balanced on the cusp of maturity, a perfect tipping point. The higher percentage from Cote de Blancs in this vintage gives each sip a chiseled and steely elan. Perfect for sharing with friends or keeping it all to yourself.
‘07 Ruinart ‘Dom Ruinart’ Rose Wow! With a wine like this why would anyone drink still wine again? A beguiling wine with red berries and wild strawberries wrapped in fresh rose petals. The palate is slightly tight, almost holding back, but opens to reveal tangerine, soft brioche, and a hint of cumin. This wine is resonant throughout. If you love rose than you need to experience this.
$329.95 * ‘06 Krug Vintage 2006 with its warm and sunny beginning and bright sunny September produced supple and expressive Champagnes.

The palate is rich with yellow plum, lemon meringue tart, and hint of honey. This is a charismatic wine that begs to spend more time with you….and why not? It is such delightful company.
Krug Grand Cuvee ‘167th Edition’ This is the archetype of blending and selection. Krug reaches back at least 20 years in the cellar to select reserve wines for blending, then ages the wine for 6 or more years on the lees to give the wine the immutable complexity that the Grand Cuvee is known for. Notes of toasted bread, hazelnut, nougat, and barley sugar are buoyed by fresh green apple and elegant soft bubbles.

This new release from Veuve, slightly drier than the yellow label, is a mutlivintage cuvee made only of reserve wines from 1988, 1996, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. A core of yellow apple and candied citrus with layers of brioche and stone fruits, this is all about freshness, generosity and structure. Crisp, clean and absolutly delicious. Caramelized Sea Scallops have never had a more perfect pairing.
First launched in 1972 for Veuve Clicquot’s bicentennial, the rare and remarkable La Grande Dame champagne is a tribute to Madame Clicquot. The 2008 is an audacious wine with a strong presence up front that reveals dried fig and apricot combined with light toasty notes of praline and hazelnut. There is a soft silky texture to the palate despite the almost impudent opening.

‘08 Veuve Clicquot Brut Rose
‘ 08 Veuve Clicquot ‘La Grande Dame’ Rose
A full bodied and energetic rose. Notes of Morello cherry and candied grapefruit combine with a slight hint of baking spice from the wooden casks used to age some of this blend. A sophisticated sipper or a delighful pairing with cured meats and creamy French cheeses.
A new daring blend in the 2008, utilizing some of the older parcels of Pinot Noir. Normally this wine is around 60% Pinot Noir, but this vintage allowed for over 90% Pinot Noir in the blend. So full-bodied and smooth, yet show refined aromas of raspberry and strawberry with slight notes of tea and fine leather. Deep a nd silky with a light elegance, worthy of being one of the best Pinot Noir wines of Champagne

‘08 Dom Perignon Brut Ripe, balanced wines were the story of 2008. We loved the rich orchard apple, soft brioche and density of the bubbles. This is a complex and luminous, a mingling of white flowers, citrus and stone fruit. Jeb Dunnuck boasted “This is a legendary Dom that surpasses all the great vintages of Dom I have experience with, including the 1990, 1996, and 2002.” With praise like this, you’re going to want a few bottles of this on hand for when the moment is right.

We keep working hard to get more of this as the folks at Angel’s Envy have it under lock & key due to its limited production. They brought the idea of finishing whiskey in other barrels to the fore with their bourbon, For their rye, they’ve found Caribbean Rum casks work best to add that little extra character they’re looking for. A spicy rye that is bolstered with unctuous notes of blackstrap molasses, cocoa and mouthfuls of honey. A rye unlike anything else, this is not to be missed.

JOSEPH PHELPS INSIGNIA
A N A PA VA L L E Y I C O N O C L A S T Consistency is a rare commodity these days, especially in the wine business, because it requires a cold fidelity to excellence and perseverance against the ebbs and flows Mother Nature brings. Maintaining an impeccable level of quality for 40 vintages requires a dedication very few wineries have been able to achieve, yet Joseph Phelps’ Insignia continues to make flawless wines that are in the top echelon of Napa Valley every vintage. In our view, Insignia is one of the indispensable, essential wines for the serious Cabernet connoisseur’s cellar, year in and year out. Joseph Phelps has long been one of Napa Valley’s stalwarts. They are a pacesetter for critically acclaimed wines. Their focus is on world-class standards, top growers and meticulous cellar triage with Insignia seeing only the best components each year. Phelps has a web of vineyards that would make any winemaker excited to go to work. Napa’s 2016 vintage is one of pure opulence, and Phelps is poised to take best advantage.
‘16 Joseph Phelps ‘Insignia’ Proprietary Red, Napa Valley We were blown away when we went to test drive the 2016 Joseph Phelps Insignia. Sheer power from start to finish with soft caressing edges that keep your palate begging for more. This wine is chasing the elusive Wine Advocate 100 points and will likely make a top appearance on a few “Best of” lists this year. The Wine Advocate describes a wine that opens to reveal, “chocolate-covered cherries, wild blueberries and black raspberries with touches of underbrush.” As with any vintage, this will continue to evolve for years to come, but will still delight if you get impatient and crack open a bottle now.
$299.95 btl. *
‘16 Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley Oh, wow. We always expect great things from Insignia’s little brother, but this 2016 is a showstopper. Ultra-concentrated, with dense cassis and blackberry. Despite being full-bodied and beautifully round, this has a focus on the palate that impresses, finishing with a soft creamy texture of sweet vanilla and fresh fig. Hands Down, this is one of the best values in Napa Cabernet under $75.

NEW HEIGHTS OF ACCLAIM! 98+, 97, 96! Andy Beckstoffer’s Dr. Crane and To Kalon vineyards are Napa Valley royalty, first recognized for their greatness in the 19th century. They are two of the most purely alluvial vineyard sites in the valley, making them true Napa Valley Grand Crus. It isn’t just hype or fashion that causes wines from these vineyards to receive legions of 100-point scores every year; it’s the fact that these are simply magical vineyard sites, ones that have helped elevate brands like Schrader, Carter Cellars, Paul Hobbs, Realm, and Myriad to superstar status.
The jury has come back, the verdict is in and Justice is served! What critics have to say:
‘16 Blind Justice ‘Beckstoffer To Kalon’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley “Almost off the charts with its potential. I followed this bottle for multiple days and it only impressed more and more with air. Give bottles 3-5 years and it’s going to cruise for 2-3 decades.” - Jeb Dunnuck JD
‘16 Frontier Justice ‘Beckstoffer Dr. Crane’ Red Wine, Napa Valley “Voluptuous amounts of ripe cherry and currant fruits, ample spice, cedar, and incense nuances, a fleshy, full-bodied, sexy texture, and a great finish.” - Jeb Dunnuck JD
‘16 Poetic Justice ‘Beckstoffer To Kalon’ Red Wine, Napa Valley “It’s another superstar wine from this team and boasts a saturated purple/ruby color, awesome notes of black raspberries, crème de cassis, vanilla, incense, and flowers, full body, and loads of sweet tannins.” - Jeb Dunnuck JD
‘16 Justice Series Cellar Collection 3-Pack 1 bottle of each in a branded wooden gift box. Wine listed above.
$599 ea. Justice Vertical Pack (‘13,’14,’15,’16) (3-btls. each. One from each vintage of Blind, Poetic, Frontier)
T I M M I L O S, W I N E M A K E R Winemaker Tim Milos has honed the craft of making wine since 1997. A fifth generation Bay Area resident, he’s a very modest guy who wouldn’t share his pride in making stellar and highly acclaimed wines (including a 100-point score) from revered parcels of Napa Valley. So we will do the boasting for him.

With 11 vintages of highly-acclaimed, customer-favorite editions of the Justice wines already in your cellars and gracing your tables, we couldn’t be more thrilled to receive a resounding endorsement for the efforts of 100-Point winemaker Tim Milos in 2016. His skill in the cellar and the perfectionist farming of Andy Beckstoffer resulted in our highest-scoring Justice trio of all time!
2016 was the sort of vintage that winemakers dream of. It was warm when it needed to be to flesh out the wines and get them to full ripeness. It was cool when it needed to be to prop up the acidity. And it rained when it was supposed to with no real impact on flowering or harvest, the two most critical times for things to stay dry.
2009 BORDEAUX 2009 was a stellar vintage, crowned by Robert Parker as “the single greatest vintage ever produced in Bordeaux since records have been kept.” (Until 2018 that is) Almost flawless conditions allowed the Chateaux to produce the best examples of what great Bordeaux can be: ripe, lush and captivating with opulent fruit and soft tannins. These wines have been perfectly cellared for over ten years so they make a tempting offer to enjoy now.
AG E D T O P E R F E C T I ON
‘09 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Dating back over 800 years on rich gravel mounds, this is the 100 point wine upon which Parker lavished “This massive, extraordinarily rich, unctuously textured wine may be the most concentrated effort produced to date.” A perfect hedonistic Bordeaux for those who want the volume to go to eleven.
$329.95 btl.* WA 100
‘09 Chateau Mouton Rothschild Pauillac The most vibrant of all the First Growths in both style and personality. With opulent texture and intriguing structure coming from 100-year-old parcels of vines! Every year the label is based on an original work from a famous artist. Previously Dali, Chagall, Picasso, and Warhol have all adorned the label. Collect this masterpiece by Baron Rothschild and artist Anish Kapoor.
$999.95 btl. * WA
‘09 Chateau Brane Cantenac Margaux Despite modernizing, this Chateau still delivers a traditional wine. Parker called this vintage “A spectacular effort”. This wine truly shows the full potential of Brane Cantenac. Concentrated and intense yet possessing remarkable elegance and finesse From the 75-hectare estate in Margaux, this wine is an emblem of quality and excellence in the world of fine wine.
$139.95 btl. * VN
‘09 Chateau Leoville-Poyferre St. Julien Leoville Poyferre is the extrovert of the siblings Las Cases, Barton, and Poyferre. Outrageous blackcurrant, cedar and leather notes burst onto the palate . Robert Parker was impressed, calling it “One of the more flamboyant and sumptuous wines of the vintage.” A perfect bottle to round out your cellar,or to drink now.
$289.95 btl. * WA
‘09 Chateau Pape Clement Pessac-Leognan Named in honor of Pope Clement V this Chateau is one of the oldest estates whose first recorded harvest was in 1252! James Suckling raved “So structured and powerful with amazing depth of fruit and tannins”. Robert Parker revisited the wine and upgraded it to 100 points. Awaken this beast from its decades old slumber.

‘09 Chateau Cos d’Estournel “Les Pagodes de Cos” Saint Estephe
$84.95 btl. * WA
It’s not fair being a complete and glorious wine, yet living in the shadow of your elders. Pagodes is the second wine of 100 point Cos d’Estournel and trying to prove it can jump as high. Jeb Dunnuck agrees “2009 Pagodes De Cos is a blockbuster that I wish I had more of in the cellar.” This wine is set apart from other second labels, and worthy of a spot in your cellar.
‘09 Chateau Montrose La Dame de Montrose Saint Estephe The little sister of the powerful full bodied Queen of St. Estephe. La Dame is more whimsical and floral retaining the elegance of her royal sister, yet still laden with plenty of dark fruits and tobacco. This is no little girl next door, make no mistake she can hold her own.
‘09 Chateau Giscours Margaux Chateau Giscours is the first 1855 Classified Growth you see, as you drive north on the famous Route de Medoc. Even after seven centuries, this estate deserves all its accolades. The 2009, with its rich, silky textures and ripe cassis filled personality was deemed one of the finest vintages of Giscours in recent years.

‘09 Chateau de Camensac Haut-Medoc
‘09 Chateau Larrivaux Haut-Medoc How do they get so much wine into this bottle?!? We have been blown away by the perfumed wave of rich black cherry, crushed stone, and dried rose that cascades from the glass. Barely two miles from Lafite Rothschild, and squeezed between Pauillac and St. Estephe, Chateau Larrivaux takes full advantage of its location. Indulge in a glass or two of this wine without worrying about your pocket book.
Robert Parker referred to this wine as a sleeper. Well it has awoken now and wants to reward the drinker with “Big, ripe, juicy wine, the tannins very solid and dark. It has layers of new wood, power and considerable density,” says the Wine Enthusiast. A wine that has sprung from its slumber, had its coffee and is ready to delight your palate. If you are looking for an introduction to great reasonably priced Bordeaux, this is it.

Tuscany is to Italian culture as Shakespeare is to theater, it embodies the artistic legacy, the culture, and the lifestyle. The blue waters off the Tyrrhenian coast cast cool breezes over the rolling waves of green grass hills that crash up against the Apennine Mountains in the center of Italy. Here, Sangiovese rules with a tart cherry and astringent hand, subjugating any palate that comes close with ethereal wafts of wild strawberries and sweet balsamic. The near coast side of Bolgheri benefits from the moderating wind and marries Sangiovese with the opulent support of the regal Bordeaux grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. These “Super-Tuscans” are perfect for lovers of structured Napa reds, the supple tannins and full fleshy flavors are soft and yielding on the palate. Further inland, in Montalcino, where the sea air does not reach, Sangiovese strikes out alone. Here she stands unaided, defiant, and strong with rich long lasting character and a more tannic edge.
’13 Poggio Landi Brunello di Montalcino Tuscany
V I VA I TA L I A !
The 2013 vintage in Montalcino is absolutely sensational, and this is one of the great value buys of the vintage. It shows tart red fruits, leather, and sarsaparilla with structured tannins and an elegant finish. Why not pick up a few to go with your mushroom pasta this weekend.
’12 Poggio Landi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Tuscany We’re proud to offer you a small parcel of Poggio Landi’s 2012 Riserva, made from their finest parcels and aged for 4 years in French oak before bottling. This is a special occasion wine, sumptuous and full of aromas of red cherries, toasted almond, cocoa powder, and blackberry.
$109.95 btl. WS
‘ 16 Antinori ‘Tignanello’ Tuscany The 2016 vintage was all about impeccably ripe Sangiovese and it was near absolute perfection at the Antinori estate. Heaps of black fruit, cherry and cassis on the palate combined with an intoxicating nose of spice, chocolate and liquorice. The Wine Advocate boasts the blend “primary fruit. In the mouth, the wine is focused and sharp”. With such high praise, scores and reduced supply for the vintage, this wine will undoubtedly sell out quickly! Grab a case now and enjoy this “classic vintage of Tignanello” now and for years to come!
’15 Mazzei Castello di Fonterutoli ‘Concerto’ Tuscany From the Fonterutoli home vineyard, this Sangiovese Cabernet blend is fresh and inviting. Suckling said “This is fabulous with blackberry, blueberry and currant aromas…classic Sangiovese and Cabernet sauvignon blend. Don’t miss it.” Put this away for 5-10 years and bring on the pork ragù over polenta.

’13 Podere Brizio Brunello di Montalcino Tuscany
’16 Tenuta Le Colonne Tuscany
This gorgeous blend is the flagship wine of the Le Colonne estate. Quickly garnering huge accolades with their 2015 release, once again this Bolgheri up and comer has NAILED this vintage. Look for notes of dark chocolate, Marasca cherry, bay leaf, and a hint of toasted vanilla. Jump on board it’s delicious!
$27.95 btl. ’16 Tenuta Le Colonne Bolgheri Superiore Tuscany
’12 Podere Brizio Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Tuscany
’16 Tenuta Argentiera Bolgheri Superiore Tuscany
The 2012 from Podere Brizio is a marvel. The aromatics are clean and intense with an essence of red fruit, licorice, and mint. You’ll find beautiful, rich tannins to support the flavors. A wine that will pair with a variety of meats and cheeses, it’s a versatile bottle at an exceptional value
Composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Argentiera is big and bold for all of you Cabernet lovers. The Wine Advocate notes “This is a dark and penetrating Tuscan red that is beautifully elevated.” Compare to greats like Sassicaia and Ornellaia at a fantastic price.
$99.95 btl. * WA
’16 Tenuta Meraviglia Maestro di Cava Bolgheri
’15 Terre di Cresci Chianti Classico Tuscany
This exciting new neighbor to the Bolgheri big boys is making waves along the Tuscan coast. A Bounty Hunter Exclusive, it is an enticing blend which shows ripe fruit aromatics accented by graphite and earth and a well structured palate with gripping tannins. Looking for an alternative to Right Bank Bordeaux for that rack of lamb you’re making? Look no further. A case of this will mature incredibly well in your cellar.
Perfectly balanced, Brizio has a little bit of everything for the Sangiovese-lover. Spice accents a dark berry core, and the terroir of the Tuscan hills shines with a lingering earthiness. It’s not everyday we find a wine which pairs perfectly with olive oil brushed grilled veggies, but here you have it.
The honors are flying in fast for Tenuta Le Colonne. From the sun-kissed shores of the Bolgheri coast expect an intense, full-bodied wine of noteworthy elegance and freshness. With dark plum notes and superbly ripe tannins, this is a Cabernet-based blend that will thrill lovers of Napa and Bordeaux wines alike!
We’re always on the lookout for great taste-perdollar you can put in your wine fridge for those quick “grab a bottle and go” situations, and this is it right here! Elegant aromatics of Morello cherry, spices, and freshly cut flowers. Juicy tannins envelope the palate and lead to a clean finish with a balance of ripeness and earth.

’16 Antinori ‘Guado al Tasso’ Bolgheri Tuscany A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot this dual 98-point (WA/JS) gem is truly sublime; with ripe plums, blueberry compote, and an earthy, herbal spine that traverses the palate from start to finish. Exceptionally elegant, this will drink beautifully for 20+ years.

In the early 1990’s Australia’s Penfolds Grange gracing the cover of Wine Spectator as Wine of the Year was the international seal of approval it needed to rocket a wine to stardom. It placed Australian wine in the company with Chateau Latour, Chateau de Beaucastel, and Caymus Special Selection, opening the eyes and cellars of savvy aficionados, and for good reason. Grange is delicious! The rest of the Southern Hemisphere has followed suit, New Zealand makes some of the most refreshing Sauvignon Blanc on earth. Now in South America, Uruguay is poised to take the lead with a grape called Tannat: rich, structured and complex, it thrives on the Atlantic coast. These are your new favorites from the south right now, hop to and pick up a case!
‘16 D’Arenberg ‘Dead Arm’ Shiraz, McLaren Vale The “Dead-Arm” is named after the Eutypa vine disease that kills one arm of the vine, leaving the grapes on the other side low yielding and concentrated. D’Arenberg uses soft handling to display the power and intensity yet retain a pure elegance and refinement. Brooding and powerful like an upset boxer, this wine wins the fight with one arm tied behind its back.
$64.95 btl. JS
’18 Greystone ‘Grey’s Peak’ Sauvignon Blanc, Marlboro Not your normal stereotype New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Loire Valley clones, partial malolactic fermentation, wild fermentation, and oak barrel aging make this wine more similar to Bordeaux Blanc than the fresh grapefruit salad that is associated with New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. This is rich and textural, stone fruits and tropical guava and pineapple with a soft creamy mouth.
$26.95 btl. ’16 Rockburn Pinot Noir, Central Otago We cannot believe we scored this wine, fewer than 25 cases make it into this country! This is one of the purest expressions of Central Otago, vibrant red cherry and rich mocha jump out of the glass while supple, silky tannins massage your tongue into submission.
’14 Penfolds ‘Grange’ ‘Grange’ is Australia’s national treasure, and one of the great wines of the world. Blended from multiple old vineyards in the Barossa and McLaren Vale, this Shiraz-Cabernet blend must be tasted to be believed. Recently we previewed the 2014 model and were stunned by its sheer power, balance, and accessibility. This is flat-out rocking wine, by any measure.
$674.95 btl. *
’16 Penfolds ‘RWT’ Shiraz, Barossa A redefinition of high quality Barossa Shiraz. The “Red Winemaking Trial” is crafted from fruit selected for its aromatic qualities and fine texture, aged in 100% French oak, to create an opulent and fleshy wine. Moroccan spices waft over saturated red cherry and blackberry pie, this is a deep dark wine. This wine remains fine-structured and poised, a balanced wine that will age magnificently. WA

The rolling hills of Bodega Garzón, a sustainable, earth-friendly wine estate, established by wine entrepreneur Alejandro Bulgheroni, are heaven for wine grapes, especially Tannat. Blessed with pristine views of the Atlantic, an unspoiled ecosystem, and dusty, charismatic back streets, the Punta del Este zone of Uruguay is very quickly becoming a new Côte d’Azur for discerning travelers. The soft stony soils, hillside slopes, and Atlantic breezes flowing over the vines result in perfect conditions for creating elegant and complex wines. Modern vineyards. Historic Lands.
$69.95 btl. BOUNTY HUNTER EXCLUSIVE
’16 Garzon ‘Single Vineyard’ Tannat
’16 Bodega Garzon ‘Balasto’, Red
The burly Tannat is one of the most interesting red grapes of southwest France. This is a fitting follow-up to the 2015 wine that caused such a stir in Decanter’s World Wine Awards last year. “Brambleberries, dark licorice, iodine, oyster shell, dark chocolate, vanilla, baking spices and plenty of tar. Full body, lots of dark fruit, juicy yet structured tannins and a chewy finish.” At this price it’s your new house wine.
“Balasto” is the “Grand Vin” of Garzón, it is the first Uruguayan wine to ever be sold alongside the crus classés on the Place de Bordeaux. Named for its perfectly draining granitic soils, all of the estate’s resources are focused to elevate the quality of this wine. James Suckling said it’s “very bright and aromatic with blackberry, black licorice and spice. Hints of sweet tobacco. A new benchmark for Uruguay. Better in 2020, but amazing now.” This is a true rising star.

’16 Garzon ‘ Petite Clos’ Cabernet Franc One of the finest expressions of Cabernet Franc form the Southern Hemisphere. This wine displays an intense aroma with notes of cassis, ripe black currants and sweet spices. Untoasted oak barrels provide subtle, well-integrated notes that allow for the fruit to be fully expressed. A delicious bottle for fans of Howell Mountain structure and Oakville opulance
’16 Bodega Garzon ‘Reserva’ Cabernet Franc Atlantic breezes cool the hillside vineyards and allow for perfect ripening of Cabernet Franc. Intense fresh blackberry, hints of dusty raspberry, and aromas of violet and cocoa give this supple wine an easy drinkability. Exotic and spicy, this wine will absolutely come alive with a lamb chop dressed with a few dabs of intensely pungent salsa verde.

‘17 Kosta Browne ‘Sonoma Coast‘ Pinot Noir
$109.95 btl. JD 96
‘17 Kosta Browne ‘Russian River Valley’ Pinot Noir Thought of by many as the beating heartland of California Pinot Noir, the Russian River Valley is influenced by cooling fog in the mornings and late afternoons which drives a more reticent style dominated by ripe red fruits. Lush raspberry and red cherry with light mulled spices dance lightly in this wine. The full mouthfeel is seamless and supple making this wine an absolute joy to drink.

Sourced from vineyards in the southern part of Sonoma Coast near the Petaluma Wind Gap and the San Pablo Bay, the cool Pacific Ocean breezes give this wine focus with deep flavors and a rich texture. Black raspberries, cassis, and crushed violets swirl on the nose and palate, the finish is light sweet earth and spice box denouement. Satisfyingly delicious.
KOSTA B R O W N
Kosta Browne is one of the biggest names in California Pinot Noir, an iconic brand that defines an era of California Pinot Noir style. Founded in 1997 by Dan Kosta and Michael Browne, sommeliers who saved money from their tips to finance the first vintage. What makes these wines some of the most sought after Pinots from California? Is it the long waiting list? The fact that almost 90% of their wines are sold directly from the winery? The limited allocation available each year? It matters not, these wines are the intense elegance of Pinot Noir personified. A limited percentage of production is available to the broad market, and current wait-list time is over 3 years for these beauties. We have done the waiting for you, skip ahead of the line and take advantage of our allocation.
CABERNET SAUVIGNON ‘15 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
‘17 Alpha Omega ‘Beckstoffer To Kalon’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
While the Carneros Pinot made them famous, the Napa Cab has always been a showstopper. Fruit from Morisoli Vineyards in Rutherford, Frediani Pickett Road in Calistoga, Schauenstein in St. Helena and Meteor Vineyard in Coombsville, winemaker Jon Priest crafts an amazingly complex wine that shows off the best of Napa. Rich dark berry fruits, chewy chocolate bar notes and silky mouth coating textures finish with vitality and lingers on the palate like a velvety and firm first kiss. Let’s just say it’ll keep you coming back for more.
Historic, iconic, and revered. The To Kalon vineyard is the “top dog” in Oakville, perhaps in all of Napa Valley. Countless high 90’s scores and the source for many of Napa’s elite wines, this is the epitome of powerful Napa Valley Cabernet. Veteran winemaker Jean Hoefliger and the A.O. team created a wine with intense structure, dark blue and black fruits with layers of crushed stone, pipe tobacco and bitter cocoa. If you’re looking for the very best that Napa can offer, then it starts right in the beating heart of Napa with To-Kalon grapes.

‘16 Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley What do you get when you bring together legendary Napa Cabernet vineyard, Eisele, and the ownership group of Chateau Latour? Four perfect 100 point scores in 5 vintages! Eisele delivers “freshly crushed blackberries, chocolate-covered cherries, cassis and aniseed with compelling nuances of black tea, cigar box, truffles and charcuterie, plus, with coaxing, gentle wafts of red roses and crushed rocks,” notes the Wine Advocate. Color us impressed, not to be missed for serious collectors.

‘17 Faust Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley Dr. Faust in the epic German opera signs his soul to the devil for access to all of the worldly pleasures and knowledge he desires. The rich, lush, hedonistic style of the 2017 Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon does its namesake proud. Faust delivers dark cherry and cassis fruit, lavender and cedar box to go with the soft, rich tannins and a long complex finish. This wine will drink well right now or even ten years from now!
‘16 JurisprudenceCabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley Sourced from two very famous alluvial sites in Oakville, which we cannot reveal due to the consequences of contractual jurisprudence. Fresh blackcurrants mixed with dried black cherry and a light hint of sweet tobacco and warm cocoa. An indulgent wine that wants you to stray into its hedonistic embrace.
For over 15 years Chris Carpenter’s flagship blend of lots from Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain, and Diamond Mountain has regularly achieved high acclaim…and this 2016 is no exception. With big dark fruit, beautiful mountain earth, and the balance that great winemaking brings, we think Jeb Dunnuck was right to say, “It’s going to be a legendary Napa Valley Cabernet.” Stocks of this wine are highly limited so add this stunner to your collection before it sells out.
Tony Arcudi has great pedigree, with a degree from UC Davis a fellowship in Hermitage France, and a stint as Heidi Barrett’s assistant he is poised to be the next big thing in Napa. Tony’s 2016 Black Sears Vineyard finds Jeb Dunnuck boasting, “beautiful wine that has more high-toned notes of spring flowers, bay leaf, forest floor, and blueberries. With full-bodied richness, again, an incredible floral character, fine tannins, and beautiful length on the finish.” Lots of talk in the Valley of Acrudi becoming the next wine to hit “cult” status – get on this one now while you still can. Only 100 cases produced!

2014 Tin Star Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
‘14 Heitz Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley A perfect representation of a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, all the elements you want with a couple you didn’t realize you needed. Ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruits set the tone but don’t overpower and the the savory herbal notes and gentle vanilla and spice complement without dominating the finish. Year after year, this is a staple that every wine drinker should have in their cellar.
The fruit sources for Tin Star this year are nothing short of world-class—as in some of the greatest alluvial sites in the Napa Valley, in St. Helena and Oakville, which we are contractually obligated not to reveal. We’re so proud of this one. It’s endowed with aromas of wet gravel, cigar leaf, boysenberry and black cherry essences. The sheriff in town and he brought great wine!

’15 Bounty Hunter Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley As cool and dark as a clandestine midnight ride up Oakville Grade,this wine’s notes of damp forest floor, leather, black fig and black cherry compote are going to seduce you. If we were to tell you the fruit sources for this wine in Oakville and St. Helena, you would be incredulous. Suffice it to say this wine comes from some of the greatest terroirs for Cabernet Sauvignon on the planet. If you’re a fan of Prime Rib, then you’re gonna want plenty of this around to help wash it down.

‘16 Merryvale ‘Profile’ Proprietary Red, Napa Valley
‘16 Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red, Napa Valley
Rich in history, Merryvale was the first post-Prohibition winery built in the Napa Valley, It began life as Sunny Saint Helena Winery in 1933. Fast forward to 2016 and the signature wine of the estate shines bright, Jeb Dunnuck says it, “offers a smoking good bouquet of blackberries, cassis, cedarwood, and graphite. Deep, rich, powerful, and beautifully concentrated.” A long time Wine Scout favorite, this is the vintage to buy!
Over the last 25 years Jayson Pahlmeyer has made a compelling case that his Pahlmeyer Red is Napa’s Mouton and the 2016 is no exception. The Wine Advocate absolutely loved the “fresh blackcurrants, black cherries and wild blueberries with hints of cigar box, tilled soil, dried bay leaves and smoked meats plus a hint of lavender.” – This wine is consistently one of our customer’s favorites to drink upon release. Don’t wait, jump in now, and let the corks fly!

‘16 Opus One Proprietary Red, Napa Valley
‘17 Bevan Cellars ‘Ontogeny’ Proprietary Red, Napa Valley
When Baron Philippe Rothschild and Robert Mondavi shook hands in 1978 they wanted to create a, “singular wine that transcends generations” and they certainly have. Opus remains one of the most iconic Napa Wines around the globe. The 2016, the next beauty from this storied producer, is a knockout. Suckling says, “Fantastic aromas that are complex and complete with blackcurrants, blueberries and herbs, such as basil and bay leaf. But always subtle.” We love Opus One for its power, grace, and longevity. It’s a must buy for any serious collector.
This plush, super-ripe, spicy, red is required drinking for Napa Valley hedonists. This is such a killer bottle of wine, year in and year out. Russell Bevan, we are not worthy! Jeb Dunnuck flipped out over the 2017 “Awesome notes of blueberries, cranberries, blood orange, white flowers, and liquid violets all flow to a full-bodied 2017 that has purity, richness, balance, and length in spades. It’s another sexy, straight-up heavenly wine from Russell Bevans that’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face.” Grab this while you still see it!

‘17 Clos du Caillou ‘Reserve’ Chateauneuf du Pape, Rhone Valley Biodynamically farmed and dotted with wild lavender, Sylvie Vacheron’s Clos du Caillou is a beautiful vineyard. The wine is delicious, The Wine Advocate notes the CdP is, “rich, creamy and plush, yet it seems effortless despite the concentration. Mocha and caramelized berries finish with great length and energy.” With the potential perfect score, this is a wine that should have a home in any serious Rhone fan’s cellar!

‘15 Castello di Fonterutoli ‘Gran Selezione’ Chianti Classico ‘15 Penfolds ‘St Henri’ Shiraz, Australia A quirk, a glitch in the Matrix, an anomaly, St Henri is a completely alternative expression of Shiraz, a counterpoint to the bombastic wines Australia can produce. St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters as it ages. You’ll love the bright, vibrant fruit and harmonious structure, that is, if you’re one of those that would chose the red pill.
Owned by the descendants of Philip Mazzei-a friend of Jefferson and gun-runner for the American Revolution—Fonterutoli is simply one of the top 10 producers in all of Chianti Classico. “Dried violets and lavender, cedar, cloves, vanilla and tobacco. Full body with ripe and chewy tannins, but this remains focused and dialed-in thanks to mouthwatering acidity,” says James Suckling. This Gran Selezione can hang with great Brunello, any day of the week!

Comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, this gem from Andy Erickson has a totally inviting aroma of new leather, cherry jam, marzipan, and graphite, and is so smooth and utterly gulpable on the palate. There’s a lot of $80 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux out there that could not hold a candle to this wine. A case buy of this beast from the deep is an easy decision!

PINOT NOIR ‘16 Waypoint ‘Brown Ranch’ Pinot Noir, Carneros PINOT NOIR
‘16 Calera Pinot Noir, Central Coast
Josh Jensen set the bar for cult Pinot Noir in California’s Central Coast in the early 70’s and his single vineyard offerings have topped some of the best Burgundies in the world in blind tastings, a true master at his craft. His Central Coast Pinot teems with, bing cherries, strawberries, raspberries. White pepper and baking spices add beautiful complexity to the nose. You will absolutely love this wine for the price, it is hard to beat.
Here’s a classic Carneros beauty, sourced from Brown Ranch, which once funneled fruit into great Pinot Noirs by Saintsbury. Ripe cherry cola, spiced hibiscus and dried strawberry are accented by spicy cardamom and clove, thanks to the whole cluster fermentation. It’s got brightness and the balance that will make you want sip after sip. It’s an ideal case buy for the Pinot lover in your life.
$29.95 btl. ‘16 Kerr Cellars Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast Professional golf star Cristie Kerr shares her wine passion with the world through Kerr Cellars. Famed winemaker Helen Keplinger leads the charge with her renowned soft touch winemaking. A gorgeous note of black tea and dried rose petal is combined with ripe cherry on the nose. We love Pinot that has this fine balance and plush tannins all wrapped up in a finish that just won’t quit. An exceedingly limited production.
‘16 Sojourn ‘Gap’s Crown’ Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast Gap’s Crown Vineyard is one of the top spots for Sonoma Pinot. This hillside vineyard, is rocky and blown by the wind tunnel of the Petaluma Gap. The grapes are forced to struggle and it makes for a beautifully complex wine, boasting blackberries, floral tones, camphor, and tea leaves. This is a bold, ripe, New World Pinot with a balance of grace and power that delivers well-above its price.
$69.95 btl. WE
‘16 Domaine Gerard Raphet ‘RGS’ Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Any Burgundy nut can tell you that not all parcels of Clos Vougeot are created equal. Gérard Raphet knows that too well, and quietly grins when talking about his old-vine rows, planted before the war. As in World War I. Look for exquisite aromatics and flavors of black raspberries, sandalwood, Asian plums and a focused, brooding finish. We picked our favorite barrel from this terrific vintage!

‘17 Remoissenet Puligny Montrachet ‘La Garenne’ 1er Cru We love to use Remoissenet as a reference for what refined, silky Chardonnay should taste like. This Puligny, from the 1er Cru vineyard “La Garenne”, has all the ripe crunchy yellow apple and Asian pear of an autumn orchard. This is a great wine for warm weather, but is a serious contender for “Best White Wine” on a cold rainy day.
‘17 Guy Robin ‘Montee de Tonnerre’ 1er Cru Chablis Some of the oldest vines in the region give a stunning, uber-expressive style of Chablis. There is nothing ordinary about Guy Robin Chablis; this is the full crisp green and yellow apple with that slight chalky hint. The bracing acidity gives this wine life and structure, it will be great in a couple of years if it lasts that long.
‘17 Far Niente Chardonnay, Napa Valley Far Niente’s focus is about making sure what’s done is done well. Since its first vintage in 1979, Far Niente has produced Chardonnay without malolactic fermentation, which means crisp, succulent fruit is the emphasis rather than butter and creamy notes. Look for fresh pineapple, figs, and peaches in this Napa Valley classic.
‘16 Waypoint ‘Hudson Vineyard’ Chardonnay Carneros, Napa Valley Hudson Vineyard is the benchmark in Carneros Chardonnay. Wineries like Arietta, Aubert, Robert Foley Vineyards, Failla, Keplinger, Kistler, and Kongsgaard make great wines from this prime Carneros property in between Napa and Sonoma. Only 12 of Hudson’s 26 clients are allowed to vineyard-designate Hudson on their labels, and we’re proud to be one of them. Try a bottle of this juicy, luxurious Chardonnay to see why!

PlumpJack’s wines are meant to “celebrate the convivial spirit” of their namesake John “PlumpJack” Falstaff, and this Chardonnay certainly does that. Bright lively acidity is balanced by ripe stone and tropical fruit, and underlying vanilla oak. Pick up a case and we’ll join you for a drink anytime.
