97 Points - James Suckling:
"This has a darker sheen of fruits in the blackberry and blood-plum spectrum with sweetly spicy and earthy aromas and some violets to boot. The palate has quite a forthright tannin firmness. A very long, linear wine with a full body and a smooth, fresh, blueberry/plum finish. An impressive wine that rolls endlessly through the finish. This has plenty of ageing potential." (Feb 3, 2018)

"I like the pretty tangerine and citrus character here, which works well with the main attraction of red berries and spices. Light to medium body, fine tannins and a fruity finish. A blend of sangiovese, merlot, sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon. Drink now. Screw cap." - (12 Apr, 2019)

99 Points - James Suckling:
"Wonderful aromas of roses and sliced plums with wet earth and truffles. Then turns to raspberries and blackberries. Cherries, too. Full and firm with super integrated tannins that melt into the wine. It flows from the center palate in a beautiful sheet of fruit and tannins. Extremely long and coated with great finesse. Goes on for minutes. Better in 2022, but already a joy to taste." - (25 Aug, 2019)

92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2016 Vintage):

"The 2016 Chardonnay from Dance is very good, wafting from the glass with youthful aromas of citrus zest, lemon curd and pastry cream. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with an attractively textural attack, racy acids and a long, saline, even stony finish. It's an impressive Chardonnay that should develop nicely for the better part of a decade. Note that part of Dance's 2016 vintage was given extended sur lie élevage, and I'll be reporting on that exciting new cuvée shortly." - William Kelley (29th Jun 2018)

94 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"More cassis, cedary spice, and dried flower notes emerge from the 2015 Red Wine Chester Kidder. It's medium to full-bodied, beautifully complex, and layered, with more upfront charm and approachability than most 2015s. Nevertheless, it's going to evolve gracefully on its balance and harmony. Made from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, and 15% Petit Verdot that spent a full 30 months in oak, hats off to winemaker Gilles Nicault for another terrific vintage for this wine." - Jeb Dunnuck (4/11/2019)

97+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is also brilliant and is a fabulous value that should be snatched up by readers. Sporting an inky purple color, it has a textbook Howell Mountain nose of gamey blue fruits, pine forest, savory herbs, iron, and crushed rock. With fabulous concentration, a pure, seamless texture, serious amounts of ripe tannins, and a blockbuster finish, this is one classy Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that will benefit from 4-5 years (it can be drunk today) and will keep for 2-3 decades. The blend is 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Saint Macaire, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Carmenere, all brought up in 80% new French oak." - Jeb Dunnuck (1/31/2019)

Krug Brut Vintage 1996 (Champagne, France) - [RP 98]
Retail Price: $1,290.00

99 Points & #10 Top 100 of 2007 - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A powerful, majestic Champagne. Deep and compelling, with aromas of whole-grain toast, coconut and dried citrus that draw you in. Lean and racy on the palate, with a creaminess that's yet to be integrated. A classic '96, with ripe, exotic aromas and a steely structure. Still a baby, with the long, resonant finish confirming its potential. Best from 2009 through 2040. 10,000 cases made." — BS (July 2007)
