2011 Poujeaux, Moulis (1.5L)
Review Date: 4-23-2014
Dark and chewy, with plenty of sweet fruit, cocoa and graphite in this mineral-driven wine. Good balance and fresh, ripe tannins.

2011 Fonplégade, St-Emilion
Review Date: 4-23-2014
Dark and inky in the mouth, graphite and slate, minerals sweet minerals. Still very tannic on the finish and big. Should age well--there is enough fruit to cellar. Great freshness.

2011 Pape Clément Blanc, Pessac-Léognan
Review Date: 4-22-2014
Stony, mineral-driven aromas, intense and concentrated. Powerful for a white, with great acid and focus. Not overdone. Fine, indeed.

2011 Clos l'Eglise, Pomerol
Review Date: 4-22-2014
Big, rich, thick texture, dense and full, quite open in the mouth. Still some aggressive tannins and hints of herbal components.

2011 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac (1.5L)
Review Date: 4-21-2014
Nice nose, with hints of mocha and spice, sweet and fleshy in the mouth, with lots of mineral and graphite and very firm tannins on the finish. Successful for the vintage. 90-92 points.

2011 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)
Review Date: 4-15-2014
Great balance, sweet fruit, almost jammy plum and red fruits; minerals, lots of spice. Polished.

2011 Margaux, Margaux
Review Date: 2-25-2014
Sweet mocha upfront and fleshy fruit, seamless in the middle with a long finish. Lush, sweet and rich. From a very small crop. This is very approachable young. The tannins are silky, but the wine is quite serious. May be my favorite of the vintage.

2011 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml) Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 2-24-2014
Very sweet and juicy, with bright acidity. Rich but fresh.

2011 Alter Ego de Palmer, Margaux (1.5L)
Review Date: 2-17-2014
Chewy blueberry fruit, spice and cola. Bright and fresh but very firm and tannic. A pretty serious wine for a second label.

2011 Pape Clément, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)
Review Date: 2-17-2014
Inky color, dark and toasty nose. This is very concentrated and layered, with tons of vanilla and spice. Definitely in a flashy style, but I like it. 90-92 points.

2011 Potensac, Médoc
Review Date: 1-20-2014
A bit firm and tannic. A rustic style.

2010 Etude "Estate Grown" Carneros Chardonnay
Review Date: 1-17-2014
A great buy for under $25 for a Chardonnay that is sure to please most palates! This wine is rich and creamy in the mouth with hints of white peach, melon and slight touches of citrus in the finish. It is a richer style of Chardonnay without being heavy and flabby.

2011 Poujeaux, Moulis
Review Date: 1-7-2014
Dark and chewy, with plenty of sweet fruit, cocoa and graphite in this mineral-driven wine. Good balance and fresh, ripe tannins.

2011 Beychevelle, St-Julien
Review Date: 1-7-2014
Perfumy nose, good spice, surprisingly sweet, with a soft, smooth finish. Fleshy mid-palate. A bit light but good.
