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.

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.

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

2002 Heitz Cellar "Trailside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 2-28-2013
Super lush and layered in the mouth, the 2002 Trailside shows amazing concentration and power but still comes off as sweet and fleshy. Underneath all the fruit are hints of minerals, spice and cedar. Drink this one now with some air but no rush. It should age well for another 10 years.
