2011 Potensac, Médoc

A bit firm and tannic. A rustic style.

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.

2010 Fonplégade, St-Emilion (1.5L)
Review Date: 12-12-2013
Plummy aromas and dense fruit. One for the cellar.

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.

2010 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
Review Date: 12-12-2013
One of my favorite Lynch-Bages in years. Lots of minerals, slate and velvety currants on the palate, with a firm backbone. Should age well.

2010 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc
Review Date: 12-12-2013
Juicy, ripe aromas of red cherries and spice. Focused and balanced with hints of minerals and slate.

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

2010 Araujo "Eisele" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 9-4-2013
There has been a ton of hype surrounding the recent purchase of Araujo from the owner of Chateau Latour. Released Sept 1st of this year, the 2010 shows a great combination of elegance and power. The middle texture is lush, rich and seamless, while the finish is extremely long and spicy. The wine is still held together with a firm structure and plenty of acidity . Serious Napa Cabernet! It will be interesting to see what happens to this property after the sale. I know one of the goals will be to take Araujo “global”. Which, means less wine for us in the states. May want to buy now!

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 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 Latour, Pauillac 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.

2011 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 5-23-2013
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. 93-95 points.
