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.

2011 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien Pre-Arrival
Review Date: 5-17-2012
New wave nose, lots of oak, creamy sweet and lush on the mid-palate. Ripe, fleshy tannins and a sweet finish. Loads of fruit and concentration. Lots of stuffing. 92-94 points.

2005 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 8-19-2008
Always Bordeaux-like in its structure and balance, this wine usually is best with time in the cellar. Big and firm, this classic cabernet from 2005 will not disappoint fans of previous vintages. Patience will be rewarded.
