1996 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Spectator: "Gushing with berry and new wood character--perhaps a bit too much--but it's rich and powerful, with lots of good tannins and a long finish. Definitely a modern-style Napa Cab." (2/2000) Decanter: "Hugely classy nose, with delicate, off-ripe jam and chocolate aromas. Powerful tannins, with dark, ripe red fruit flavours - an iron fist in a velvet glove. 18/20 points."

2003 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the smallest crops to be included in the Ridge Monte Bello, only 32% of the production made it into the 2003, which is largely Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. Out of barrel as well as post-bottling I liked this wine a lot, and it has changed very little from when I last tasted it in February, 2010. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color along with sweet black currant, blueberry, graphite, licorice and toasty vanillin aromas. The tannins are still noticeable in this full-bodied 2003, but seem reasonably well-integrated. ...Read More »

2011 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

Bright citrus, lemon oil, flowers and crushed rocks are all vivid in the glass, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that stands out most. The long, vibrant finish is a thing of beauty.

1997 Dehlinger "Estate" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90 points Robert Parker: "The dark ruby/plum-colored 1997 Pinot Noir Estate (1,330 cases) could pass for a top Beaune premier cru. With sweet, chocolatey, smoky, black cherry fruit intermixed with spicy cinnamon and earthy scents, this sexy, hedonistic Pinot Noir fruit bomb is undeniably delicious and compelling. Too good to resist, it will be better with another 6-12 months of bottle age, and last for 5-7 years. It tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol." (01/2000)

Lemon, apricots, pears and white flowers all wrap around the palate, but what stands out most is the sheer silkiness and textural finesse of the wine. Moreover, tropical notes emerge with time, but in the end, this is a fairly restrained Chardonnay from Mark Aubert. Sweet floral notes meld into the soft, caressing finish.

2002 Arietta "H Block Hudson" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Very pure aromas of black raspberry, blueberry, licorice, violet and graphite. Plush and sweet but with real energy and inner-mouth floral lift. Wonderfully youthful and consistent from start to finish. This boasts fruit of steel, and the powerful tannic spine for a long and graceful evolution in bottle. Utterly palate-saturating on the aftertaste. (ST)" (6/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot, from the Hudson Vineyard in Carneros, exhibits a blue/purple color along with superb aromatics of blueberries, raspberries and swee ...Read More »

1968 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (375ml)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A big and juicy old wine, with a youthful heart of fruit. Dark ruby in color, with an abundance of blackberry, plum, dark chocolate, tar and mint aromas. Similar flavors make for a full-bodied, chewy mouthfeel. Long finish. (JS)" (2/2000) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine remains at its plateau of maturity, with greater holding power than the 1970. There is a lot to be said for the 1968, a fascinatingly perfumed, spicy, richly fruity wine with full body, outstanding concentration, and wonderful freshness and length. (RP)" (6/1995)
