93 points, Editor's Choice, Wine Enthusiast

Best Premium Cabernet Sauvignon Gift
"While most Cabernets are still young from 2014 and 2015, this Laely is still from 2012. This extra age has allowed this wine to mature beautifully. Laely sources their grapes from some of the best districts such as Howell Mountain, Rutherford, Atlas Peak and Oakville. The wine is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petite Verdot. This is a serious wine without expressing one dimensional, over-the-top oak notes, but rather a balanced profile at release with an age worthy, yet approachable tannin structure."
Victor Doyle, General Manager, Pop's Wines & Spirits, November 2017

Best Premium Italian Gift
92 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate)
"The Masi 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera is a plump and rich wine that portrays the opulent characteristics of this hot vintage. Dark blackberry is followed by sweet tobacco, baking spice, tar or resin. This beautiful Amarone glides smoothly over the palate imparting dense extraction and dark fruit flavors along the way. The wine has the natural constitution to hold strong for the next decade. Drink: 2017-2025. (May 2017)"
