2004 Angélus, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This 7,500-case blend of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc is one of the strongest wines of the vintage. A deep blue/purple hue is accompanied by classic aromas of smoky blueberries and blackberries as well as incense and floral notes in the background. A beautiful texture, opulence, flamboyance, and purity characterize this stunningly deep, full-bodied effort, another great success from proprietor Hubert de Bouard. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022." (1/2007) 95 points Wine & Spirits: "Like the best of the St-Emilions of this vintage, Angélus seems to glow in the glass, the intensity ...Read More » 

2008 Palmer, Margaux

95 points Vinous: "The 2008 Palmer has a very intense bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, crushed violet and iris scents, blossoming in the glass whilst retaining superb delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine but quite rounded tannin that frame the pure blackberry and raspberry fruit. There are touches of white pepper and clove towards the finish, completing quite a superb Margaux from Thomas Duroux. Equal with Château Margaux? It might even be better... (NM)" (2/2018) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich and concentrated, touched easily by toasty wood. The tannins are so sweet, blending easily ...Read More » 

2015 Hartford Court "Fog Dance Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Chardonnay Fog Dance Vineyard comes from a hillside parcel in the cooler Green Valley portion of the Russian River. Barrel fermented and aged 16 months in 36% new French oak, it offers a huge nose of orange blossom, tangerines, and citrus oil, full body, a crisp, beautifully detailed, delineated texture, good acidity, and a big finish. Drink this elegant yet powerful Russian River Chardonnay over the coming 5-7 years. It’s terrific stuff." (6/2018) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Hartford Court Pinot Noir Fog Dance Vineyard gives a full on bo ...Read More » 

2010 Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Chardonnay

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, green-tinged gold. Seductive, highly perfumed aromas of dried pear, lemon pith and white flowers, with iodine and honey nuances adding depth. Smooth and broad on entry, then brighter in the mid-palate, offering vibrant, mineral-accented orchard fruit and bitter citrus flavors and a note of sweet butter. Finishes sappy and extremely long, with resonating mineral and spice notes. Great energy and power. (ST)" (6/2013) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Very tight and rich, presenting a dense core of white peach, nectarine, citrus and crushed rock. Shows impressive balance, purity, fo ...Read More » 

2007 Williams Selyem "Coastlands Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Potent aromas of blackberry, boysenberry and dried rose, with exotic Indian spice and gingerbread nuances adding complexity. Deep, fleshy dark berry flavors show liqueur-like depth and intensity, with slow-building tannins adding grip and structure. Develops more vibrancy and red fruit character with aeration and finishes with outstanding clarity and sappy persistence. This is another '07 from Williams-Selyem that calls for patience.

2015 Kongsgaard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The debut vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005, has turned out beautifully. Made from fruit grown in David Abreu’s vineyards, this Cabernet Sauvignon (which includes tiny amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) comes from three distinct vineyards, one above Dalla Valle, and two on the back streets of St. Helena. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of espresso roast, fudge, forest floor, creme de cassis, and smoked meats. The wine is layered, full-bodied, and rich. A tour de force in Cabernet Sauvignon, it can be consumed over the next ...Read More »

2006 Sine Qua Non "Raven Series" California Grenache

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, largely from the 11 Confessions Vineyard, with a small amount from Bien Nacido, spent 21 months in barrel. It is really strutting its stuff now, and showing even better than my original note predicted in August of 2009. The wine has loads of meat, licorice, smoke, charcoal and graphite, as well as huge peppery, blackberry and black cherry notes. Full-bodied, with great acidity, nicely integrated tannin, an admirable mouthfeel and tremendous length, this killer Grenache is still young and probably 3-5 years away f ...Read More » 

2008 Margaux, Margaux

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*** Cellar Selection *** Definite richness alongside classic elegance. It's a stylish wine, the fruit integrated into a beautiful structure. It's not all refinement, because there is also a weight to the black plum skin and dark berry character. A wine that will age over many decades. (RV)" (4/2011) 94 points James Suckling: "This is so subtle and refined on the nose with amazing perfumes of rose petal, blueberries and blackberries. Full but very tight and fresh with a lovely length that goes on and on. Starts off slowly with a solid core of fruit, then grows denser and denser. Thi ...Read More » 

2004 Sine Qua Non "Covert Fingers - Ariata Hills Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 462-case 2004 Pinot Noir Covert Fingers is seamless and elegant, with a ripe, layered profile of sweet cassis, forest floor, licorice and ground herbs. Coming all from the cooler climate Arita Hills Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and completely destemmed, aged in 70% new French oak (the rest in 1-3-year-old barrels), never racked, and bottled unfined and unfiltered, it’s a full-bodied, beautiful effort that’s drinking at point. It’s in no danger of falling off a cliff and should continue to shine through 2024, although I see no reason to hold off. ( ...Read More »

2013 Produttori del Barbaresco "Pora" Barbaresco Riserva

94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Barbaresco Riserva Pora is soft, pliant and enveloping. In many vintages, the Pora can be a bit light. Not in 2013. The wine is rich and deeply textured, with layers of fruit that continue to build with time in the glass. The tannins are present, but they are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. This is an especially powerful, brooding edition of the Pora. Although impressive today, the 2013 will drink well for decades to come." (10/2017)

2014 Domaine Bruno Colin Chassagne-Montrachet

Best from 2018 through 2024. (BS)" (5/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chassagne-Montrachet Village from Bruno Colin has a flattering bouquet: subtle tropical fruit, hints of smoke and pear, then hazelnut developing just behind. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a twist of sour lemon on the entry, impressive mineralité and quite an austere but compelling finish.

2009 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

94 points Wine Spectator: "This cellar-worthy Bordeaux-like expression offers a mix of cedar-laced tobacco, dried berry, loamy earth and herbal notes. Young and tightly wound, this unfolds slowly and gracefully, and looks like an ideal choice to lay down. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2028. (JL)" (10/2012) 93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Although very much showing the winery's predictable predilection to ripeness, Pahlmeyer's newly released red blend is an immense, wonderfully well-filled wine that is as long on juicy fruit as it is ripe and rich in oak ...Read More » 

1989 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

95 points Wine Spectator: "What a nose here, from crushed mulberry to tanned leather to tar. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins that are soft and caressing, like cashmere. This is so tight and powerful still; it seems to be holding back. Be patient, because it will open with another five or six years of bottle age. Hard to wait. So why do it? (JS, Web Only-2010)" 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Robersons’ 1989 Bordeaux horizontal. The Pichon-Baron ’89 has a lucid garnet core. The nose is very pure and well defined with small black cherries, blueberry, a touch of iodine, mint and a pastille quality co ...Read More » 

1985 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 from cask could have been a lighter version of the 1982 and 1953 vintages. Forward, with a fabulously scented bouquet of pain grille and concentrated red and black fruits (especially black cherries), it is rich, lush, long, and medium to full-bodied. Very fragrant, with gobs of sweet black fruits, minerals, and spice in both its flavors and aromatics, this is one of the most forward wines from Cos. (RP)" (1/1998) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark, rich and deeply concentrated. California-like, with its opulent coffee, herb, cedar, currant, coffee, mineral and spice flavors. R ...Read More »

2015 Clos Saint-Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from an old vine selection and a smaller production release for the US market, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes tastes like the classic cuvée, only on steroids. Kirsch, loads of black and blue fruits, flowers and lavender notes all emerge from this full-bodied 2015 that has fine, fine tannin, solid mid-palate depth and a great finish. It certainly offers pleasure today, yet will keep for 10-15 years.

1988 Krug Brut Champagne (Direct from Krug 2018)

98 points Wine Spectator: "A superb Champagne and still youthful. Honey, ginger, lemon confit, coffee and mineral aromas and flavors come to mind, all kept focused by a firm, tightly wound structure. The finish is where its pedigree shines through, lingering like warm gingerbread and coffee. (BS)" (10/2003) 96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ineffable yeast autolysis aromas (biscuit, meal, nuts) virtually resist characterization; reminded me of a great Chevalier-Montrachet. A wine of extraordinary depth of flavor, vinosity and class, thanks to penetrating but perfectly harmonious, lipsmacking acidity. Quite dry but w ...Read More » 

2013 Agostino Bosco "Volupta" Barbera d'Alba

Chateau de Briat Hors d'Age Armagnac (750ml)

The Château de Briat has a long and impressive history. Built in 1540, it first served as the hunting manor for Queen Jeanne d'Albret. Her son, Henri de Navarre, later Henri IV, King of France, often stayed in the castle but in 1587 gave it to one of his fellow officers as a reward for saving his life in battle.After changing ownership several times, the domaine was taken over by Baron Raoul de Pichon-Longueville in 1864. This 12-year old is made of 75% baco, 15% folle blanche and 10% colombard. Amber colored with attractive viscosity, its supple, elegan... Read More »

(8/2017) Wine Spectator: "Deep cherry is the main flavor theme here, with spice and iron accents. Fresh and firmly structured, with chestnut and tobacco elements from the oak. Merlot, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2023. (BS)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: 25% Merlot, 25% Syrah, 25% Cabernet, 25% Sangiovese.

94 points Wine Spectator: "This is so fresh still, just a baby. Blackberry, mineral, floral and blueberry aromas follow through to a full body, with focused, subtle fruit and a racy, refined and reserved tannin structure. This really needs time. Cuddled up in a ball of tannins. (JS, Web Only-2010)" 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Captivating nose of roasted currant, cedar and minerals, with a floral lift; quite fresh for the year. Sweet, supple, dense and full, with no dip in the middle. This is impressively chewy and concentrated for a '99. Finishes long and flavorful, with sweet, building tannins. ...Read More » 

2015 Tua Rita "Giusto di Notri" Toscana (Pre-Arrival)

Can't wait to taste in bottle. Made from organic grapes." (8/2017) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Here is a high performance wine from Stefano Frascolla and his family.

2004 Ojai "White Hawk Vineyard" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

It is wonderfully well-balanced and firmed by a keen streak of perfectly fit tannins, and it conveys a real sense of depth throughout."

1966 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (high shoulder)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This may be the most successful wine produced by this estate during the decade of the sixties... The wine has always been a classic Bordeaux, with more fruit and body than many 1966s. There is a degree of austerity, but the wine's dominant characteristics include a complex, tobacco, cedar, and red currant-scented nose, medium body, excellent concentration and ripeness, and a spicy, long, moderately tannic finish."

Deep and beautifully layered, the 2011 stands out for its delineation, energy and pure vibrancy. I very much like the sense of energy here. This is a relatively gentle, suave style for Howell Mountain, but at the same time, there is plenty of early accessibility. The 2011 is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot. (AG)" (11/2013)

2006 Eric Kent "Stiling Vineyard" Russian River Pinot Noir

Its richness comes at the cost of a bit of finishing heat and tannin, but a little patience and service with a mustard-crusted rack of lamb should show this one off at its very best."

It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 21 months in 66% new French oak. This vineyard is a south-facing micro-terroir with lots of rocks, and the wine smells of mountain garrigue intermixed with black cherry, blackberry and cassis.

The floral note gains strength with air and carries onto the palate, adding complexity to the wine's deep, chewy cherry and dark berry flavors. This is like two wines in one, with a high-pitched nose and a deeper, weightier palate. The finish strongly echoes the cherry and mineral notes and refuses to let up.

There is an inchoate, resinous element that will surely surface over the next decade or so. This is a bouquet that demands attention and in this blind tasting, sticks out from the crowd, a sui generis. Since I last tasted it, the palate has opened up and is beginning to pump on all cylinders.

I feel completely vindicated in this view as I batted away the 1967 Yquem when tasted at the chateau and entranced its audience. This great Yquem was born during 10 days from October 6, when warm and humid conditions caused an outbreak of botrytis. It was a small crop of just 228 barrels.
