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 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 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.

2010 Malescot-St-Exupéry, Margaux
Review Date: 12-12-2013
Another seamless wine that shows lush black cherries, mocha and spice. The wine is velvety on the mid-palate with silky tannins.

2011 Croix Mouton, Bordeaux Supérieur
Review Date: 9-18-2013
Decent fruit, sweet, bright and spicy.

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 Sojourn Cellars "Rodgers Creek Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Review Date: 5-27-2013
The Rodger’s Creek Pinot Noir from Sojourn is the earthiest of the lineup. Classic forest floor, mint and spice linger behind a wall of upfront, ripe red fruits. A solid core of fruit carries this wine through on the finish.

2011 Sojourn Cellars Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Review Date: 5-27-2013
The 2011 Sojourn Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is a fresh, delicate and lively Pinot Noir that will pair well with food. Not overdone and shows the softer side of Pinot.

2011 Sojourn "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Review Date: 5-27-2013
The “Gap’s Crown” Pinot Noir leans more on the darker side of pinot. Dark purple in color, this wine shows almost a blueberry-like fruit quality, hints of grilled meats, bacon and spice. Although dark in color and flavors, still this wine shows finesse and balance.

2011 Sojourn Cellars "Sangiacomo Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Review Date: 5-27-2013
The 2011 Sangiacomo Chardonnay was one of the richer of the Chardonnay’s we tasted on the trip. Owner Craig Haserot focuses on mouth feel for his Chardonnay’s. This wine goes through full ML but still only see’s about 30% New Oak. This wine is definitely fleshy and creamy in the mouth. It is loaded with dense, rich fruit, hints of baked pear, figs and green apple. The finish is still bright and fresh, as there is plenty of acidity to carry the wine through.

2004 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 3-4-2013

Amazing wine that is showing well now and will age gracefully for another 10-15 years! It is loaded with black cherry, coco powder, leap pencil and red currant fruit. This wine is rich and lush in the mouth but sits on a firm structure. Tannins are ripe and integrated.
Drink from 2013 to 2025

2004 Heitz Cellar "Trailside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 2-28-2013
Loaded with spice, mint and bright cherry fruit, this wine is dense and firm. Great mid texture and tons of complex flavors have yet to even come out of this wine. Will be great in 10 years if one can hold out that long!

2005 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 2-28-2013
Classic Martha’s Vineyard aromas and flavors come through this vintage. Still quite young, this wine is seamless and balanced with a fresh lively texture. Tannins are firm and this wine should really flesh out over the next 5-10 years. One for the cellar for sure!

2010 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 2-11-2013
One of my favorite wines of the vintage. Seamless, sweet, ripe cassis fruit, pure and fresh, with ripe, velvety tannins.

2011 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 5-17-2012
Dark color. Intense on the nose. Tightly wound, deep and super concentrated. A massive wine with huge tannins that’s not showing much for me now. Very focused. I loved ’09 and ’10 out of barrel, but I had never understood this wine in its youth before those two vintages—now I am back to not understanding the wine.
