Chosen by Porthos, a one-stop-shop for access to wines in Napa Valley, these rare discoveries are exceptional in taste and price. Take the Jusyln Vineyards’ 2005 Cabernet, rated "Classic 95" points from critic Robert Parker. The Vice and Versa Cabernets, crafted by rockstar winemaker Paul Hobbs and sourced, respectively, from the famed Beckstoffer To Kalon (aka original Opus One) and Stagecoach vineyards, normally sell for up to $300 per bottle, but we’re offering these—produced from the same grapes, but in micro-batches of just a barrel each—at half that cost. Other treasures here include the new Amapola Creek wines, overseen by Sonoma legend Rich Arrowood.
These rare vintages are chosen by Porthos, a one-stop-shop for information and access to small-production wines in Napa Valley and beyond. Made under the watchful eye of Andy Erickson of Screaming Eagle fame, the Arietta offerings feature plush tannins, varietal purity, and opulent flavors. And while Screaming Eagle commands over $1,700 per bottle, the Ariettas—all of which boast ratings of 95 or above from <i>The Wine Insiders</i>—afford similar quality at a fraction of the price. Overseen by David Ramey, known for reds that are rich, lush, and silky smooth, the 2007 and 2006 Ramey Napa Cabernet Sauvignons are thrilling, receiving <i>Insiders</i> ratings of 95+ and 94, respectively.
