Review Date: 9-18-2013
Decent fruit, sweet, bright and spicy.

2011 Angludet, Margaux Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 7-23-2013
Perfumy, with nice middle fruit and firm tannins that don't come off as drying. A success for the vintage.

2011 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 6-20-2013
Trey: Very focused and rich, with a sweet core of fruit on the spicy, lively palate. Crisp and bright. 90-92 points.

2011 Ducru-Beaucaillou, St-Julien Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 6-12-2013
Dark and exotic on the nose, then spicy and open, dense and concentrated. Lots of power, plus big powerful tannins that are ripe and almost silky. Long, firm and fleshy on the finish. 93-95 points.

2011 Pétrus, Pomerol Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 6-12-2013
Tons of red currant and black berry aromas. Very creamy texture, sweet mocha flavor and extremely pure and crisp fruit. Melts in your mouth, and then the tannins - big, but ripe - come through.

2011 Jordan Russian River Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 6-6-2013
2011 throughout California was a cool year. For me, this really helped out the white wines. Although a difficult vintage for winemakers, I think consumers will enjoy the bright acidity and freshness that these wines have. 2011 Jordan Chardonnay is a perfect example of how the cooler conditions affected the wines. It still has that upfront toasty oak, ripe, nearly tropical fruit, but it is all being held together well with its zippy acidity. This wine sees 50% new Oak and is on the low side these days in California at 13.5% alcohol by volume.

2007 Joseph Swan "Stellwagon" Sonoma Valley Zinfandel
Review Date: 6-5-2013
I have always loved the Zinfandels from Joseph Swan. Swan Zin’s always seem to have a purity of fruit and a freshness that I love. The 2007 Stellwagon shows blackberry, raspberry and red currant fruit that explodes from the glass. The wine seems to dance across the palate without leaving any hint of over-ripeness or over extraction. Great summer BBQ wine!

2011 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (1.5L) Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 6-3-2013
Spicy, almost exotic mocha aromas in the glass. Dark chocolate, fleshy mid-palate fruit and a velvety texture. This wine is sexy and long-definitely an earlier drinker. This wine should show well on release; it tastes pretty good now.

2011 Latour, Pauillac (1.5L) Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 5-29-2013
Smoky flavors of graphite, slate and minerals, with a sweet core of black berries and red currants. Still firm on the finish. A very good Latour.

2011 Ramey Napa Valley Claret
Review Date: 5-27-2013
Not exactly a typical Bordeaux Blend, the 2011 Napa Claret is a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Syrah and 2% Cabernet Franc. The Claret is made in a style to drink right away and to be enjoyed with food. It is a lighter, softer style red that shows lots of spice, sweet herbs and earth. This wine is a nice change of pace and will match well with roasted or grilled chicken.

2010 Ramey Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Review Date: 5-27-2013
The 2010 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is definitely in a leaner more “Chablis-like” style. It is very fresh and bright with an ABV of 13.5%. This wine will round out and soften with a few years in a cellar, this is a wine for fans of a crisper style Chardonnay- like me!

2009 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 5-27-2013
The 2009 Cabernet is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvingon, 18% Merlot, 5% Petite Verdot and 1% Malbec. For me Jordan Cabernet is usually a wine that can be enjoyed at a very young age. The 2009 shows ripe upfront red cherry fruit, a round, soft, almost creamy mouth feel and followed by hints of vanilla, mint and mocha. This wine is perfect to drink over the next 10 years.
