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 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 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 Poujeaux, Moulis

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.

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.

2010 DuMol "Eoin" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Review Date: 5-27-2013
The 2010 Eoin Pinot Noir from DuMol shows that classic smoky, grilled meat aroma that grabs your attention right away. In the mouth, this whole cluster pressed Pinot is dense and chewy. Flavors of cinnamon, cloves and red cherry fruit explode from the glass. ABV is still under 14%. Lots of grip, acidity and structure, this wine should age well for 7-10 years.

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!
