The finest wines in the world, at all price points, are made in surprisingly small lots. Every day, WineAccess presents one wine – a few hundred cases of the very best – for delivery right to your door.
Sometimes we find the wines directly from importers. But mostly, we do it ourselves, going right to the best vineyards and cellars, direct to the source.
Is there a house style? Yes. All wines must have rich, clean fruit flavors. But they must have enough mineral backbone to balance the richness. Almost all are delicious on release, but they must also improve with age.

Darkest purple in color, incredibly aromatic, full of super-concentrated small, crushed red fruit flavors, laced with violets, thyme and a touch of garrigue, Xavier's 2009 "Anonyme" remains locked in suspended animation, still packed with primary fruit opulence, yet buttressed by firm acid backbone. Parker suggested that this 96-pointer will still be going strong in 2030. That prediction now appears to be conservative.
180 bottles remain of Parker's 2009 cult wine, all of which are earmarked for WineAccess. $80 on release. Something quite a bit juicier today. Why? Because it's only 'fair.' read more »
The 2009 Corbaia may well be the most brilliant blend to ever be drawn off these calcareous slopes. Brilliant, deep ruby to the rim with voluptuous aromas of black cherry, crushed blackberry and white pepper, gently framed by new-wood cedar. Drink now if you must, or far better, do as Parker suggests and lay this Super Tuscan down until the 2020s! One more time, 95 points from The Wine Advocate.
$71 on release. $57 this morning. 2,400 bottles are on their way stateside — 600 earmarked for WineAccess — far and away the largest allocation in the country. read more »
The just-released 2013 Chateau Revelette Coteaux D'Aix en Provence Rosé is brilliant salmon-pink to the rim, infused with piercing aromas of strawberry, apricot pit and floral oils. Surprisingly rich and supple in 2013, far more serious than a pink wine has any right to be, richly layered, finishing with classic Provençal crispness.
One of the few wineries to ever receive 91 points from Tanzer for their pink wine, just 1,200 bottles have been earmarked for WineAccess at a mouthwatering $15.99/bottle. Shipping included on 6. This is a CASE buy.

The 2006 Caparzo Riserva and the phenomenal 2007 Caparzo Vigna La Casa were two of the most highly rated Brunellos of their respective vintages. We've been working on both wines with the importer for the better part of three months, hoping to reel in sufficient quantities for two offers. But after the likes of Del Posto, Marea and Otto weighed in, the "potential" WineAccess allocation was trimmed by more than half.
Call this "The 95-Point Work-Around." Just 18 cases of each wine have been set aside for WineAccess, all of which have been assembled into 108 four-pack collections. $350 on release. $250 today on WineAccess, while they last.

The 2011 Anderson's Conn Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a marvel. Dark purple to the rim with superb vibrancy and lift, this magnificently textured 2011 combines extraordinary natural concentration with the high-toned backbone that so distinguishes 2011. Packed with dark cherry, plum and licorice, showing great density and compactness, the tannins are firm, arguing once again for a decade or two of cellar slumber.
95+ points — right beside Colgin, Screaming Eagle and Araujo in Galloni's list of the Top Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons of 2011! Just $68/bottle today — for the last 468 bottles. Shipping included on 4. Last call! read more »
