100 points Jane Anson: "Tasted at Berry Bros 1996 '25 years on' supper in November, and also at the estate in June, this is unquestionably one of the finest 1996s that you can open right now. Softly spoken, finely-spun tannins that are still in control, setting off the white truffle, cured leather and smoked earth notes. This inches forward through the palate, slowly unwinding its raspberry and wild strawberry fruits, along with penoy and dried rose aroamtics. A stunning wine that is still giving so much pleasure. The team at the estate always say this i...

1996 Castello della Paneretta "Terrine" Toscana

90 points Wine Spectator: "A very well crafted red. Very pretty aromas of milk chocolate and raspberry follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm, well-knit tannins and a long, long finish. (JS)" (05/2000)

94 points Jane Anson: "Clearly more depth in colour than the preceding three years, and this is classic Pauillac, as with the 1995, but a little more structured. Cedar and cassis notes, still sombre and stubborn tannins, opens to show woodsmoke, cold ash, and touches of eucalyptus. 59IPT, 80% new oak." (05/2022) 94 points Vinous: "The 1996 Pichon-Baron now has a superior bouquet to the 1995. There is much better definition here, and the scents of blackberry, graphite, smoke and a touch of gravel are all very harmonious and focused - quintessential Paui...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and focused, with pretty extra flavor facets. The core of black cherry, currant, plum, cedar and anise builds to a complex finish. (JL)" (11/1999)

100 points Wine Advocate: "As granite as granite gets, with an almost liquid rock character that’s almost impossible to find outside of Hermitage, the sensational 1996 Ermitage l'Ermite offers a complex array of ripe dark fruits, olive, game and graphite in a full-bodied, fresh, incredibly delineated and focused style. Massively concentrated, structured, and rich on the palate, yet as seamless as they come, enjoy this utterly heavenly wine over the coming two to three decades. Once the tasting was over and the drinking began, this was the first glass dra...

92-96 points Wine Advocate: "This wine exhibits a saturated ruby color with purple nuances. Additionally, it is rich, with lots of extract, tannin, and body. Ceretto's opaque ruby/purple-colored 1996 Barolo Bricco Rocche is sensational stuff. It combines explosive levels of fruit, glycerin, and extract with an uncanny sense of elegance and finesse. There are copious quantities of black cherry fruit, intermixed with raspberries, cedar, spicy oak, licorice, and tar... terrific, complex, multidimensional Barolo.

97 points Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Merlot (3,000 cases) is a worthy rival. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc tips the scales at a heady 14.6% alcohol. Could it be better than the 1997? The wine is opaque black/purple-colored, with a knock-out nose of plums, black cherries, chocolate, raspberries, licorice, and toasty new oak. Viscous in the mouth, with superb purity, this is a riveting, mind-boggling Merlot that sets a new reference point for this varietal in California. (RP)" (12/1998) 93 points Int'l Wine ...

Non-blind Luce vertical (March 2013). (BS, Web Only-2013)" K&L Notes: Joint venture between Robert Mondavi and the Frescobaldi family of Florence.

1996 Turley "Aida" Napa Valley Petite Syrah
Back In Stock!
92-93 points Wine Advocate: "Turley continues to offer two of the blackest, densest, richest Petite Syrahs ever produced in California. Alongside its siblings, the 1996 Petite Syrah Aida Vineyard looks like a wimp with only 13.8% alcohol, but what concentration and intensity this wine offers. From a 4.5-acre vineyard, only 3 tons of fruit were harvested in 1996. The result is an opaque purple-colored wine with a dense, mineral, earthy, peppery, blackberry-scented nose, huge, ripe, thick flavors, gobs of glycerin and fruit, and a long, moderately tannic f...

1996 Gloria, St-Julien

Wine Spectator: "Harmonious and balanced. Good dark color, with lovely berry and eucalyptus aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, silky and caressing finish. (JS)" (01/1999) K&L Notes: We'd like to pour this wine for any wine collector who thinks that good Bordeaux has gotten too pricey. There are tons of awesome wines (from even the finest Bordeaux appellations) with price tags that won't break the bank. In our tasting of the '96 Bordeaux vintage, we were really impressed with Gloria.

1996 Turley "Whitney Tennessee" Napa Valley Zinfandel

94 points Wine Advocate: "This wine (planted in 1898) seems almost claret-like in its civilized, less weighty style. There is gorgeous sweet black cherry and raspberry fruit in the nose, intertwined with earth, licorice, and pepper. (RP)" (08/1998) 90 points Int'l Wine Cellar: "Vinous aromas of cassis and smoke. Tightly wound, penetrating, intense berry flavor. Tactile and concentrated but not thick; in fact, a distinctly lacy, firmly structured style of Zinfandel despite its 15.3% alcohol. Finishes with a brambly quality and chewy tannins. (ST)" (05/1...

What would you expect from a guy who made his name as the former winemaker at Robert Mondavi, Simi, and Opus One? According to the Wine Spectator, you can expect "Medium-weight, with a band of cedary cherry and currant of moderate proportion, picking up more complexity on the finish." (10/99)

94 points Wine Advocate: "This deep ruby/purple-colored wine (planted high on Howell Mountain) reveals a sweet nose of black raspberries, truffles, smoke, and spice. This full-bodied wine is rich in glycerin and extract, with beautifully integrated alcohol (about 15%). (RP)" (07/1998) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Marked by distinctive spice, mint and pepper flavors built around a core of plum and blackberry.

94 points Wine Advocate: "This wine (from a 2.2 acre parcel of 80-year old Alexander Valley vines) exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, followed by sweet berry fruit aromas intermixed with herbs and minerals, and gobs of chewy blackberry and cherry fruit. A thick, viscous, full-bodied, yet impeccably well-balanced Zinfandel, it should drink well for 5-8 years...Zinfandels such as Turley's set the standards for other producers, and encourage people to search out old, head-pruned parcels of Zinfandel vines and treat them as they would Cabernet Sauvignon or P...

96 points Wine Advocate: "While it's the Médoc that tends to steal the limelight in this vintage, the 1996 Haut-Brion, the fruit of a strict selection, is a brilliant wine and comparatively underestimated today. Wafting from the glass with aromas of tobacco leaf, sweet currant fruit, loamy soil, cedar box and camphor, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and intense, with a deep core of fruit, sweet tannins and a long, sapid finish.

93 points Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Leoville Barton appears more youthful than the 1996 Langoa Barton in the glass with a healthy deep garnet core. The aromatics unfurl gracefully in the glass revealing briary, wild hedgerow, black truffle and sandalwood scents -- firmly in secondary aroma stage but with appreciable presence and intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin that form its firm and classic structure, spice, white pepper and cloves infusing the slightly animally red berry fruit. This is an adorable Léoville Barton that is occupyi...

Wine Advocate: "Opaque ruby/purple, with plenty of intensity, fruit, body, glycerin, and tannin, the 1996 is a forceful, muscular, broad-shouldered claret.

1996 Bel Air Lagrave, Moulis-en-Medoc (1.5L)
Top Pick!
This unknown property makes super value-old school wines.
Price: $49.99



90 points Vinous: "Good full red. Lively aromas of crystallized redcurrant, cherry, mint, licorice and black pepper. Fat, creamy and huge on the palate, with mouthfilling, superripe flavors bordering on raisiny. Surprisingly brisk acidity gives the flavors unexpected delineation. Really clings to the palate. A bit like a wine from Henri Bonneau, only simpler. Rather port-like, aggressive-but-long finish. For fans of outsized wines. (ST) " (05/1999)

Fontanafredda is a historic estate in the commune of the same name in Piedmont. It has long been regarded as one of the great producers of the region, and has a large range of wines including single-vineyard Barolos, Barbaresco, Dolcetto d'Alba, Barbera d'Alba and Moscato d'Asti. The estate was established in 1858 when the land was purchased by King Vittorio Emanuele II of Sardinia (later the first king of Italy) for Rosa Vercellana, a drum major's daughter with whom he had fallen in love. Rosa was made Countess of Mirafiori and Fontanafredda a year late...

Only made in the greatest years. A very special wine. *Collectibles* (JS)" (11/2002) 96 points Wine Advocate: "The estate’s 1996 Barolo Riserva Villero is outstanding. Layers of dark fruit, sweet spices, menthol and crushed rocks saturate the palate as this powerful, brooding wine shows off its pedigree. This intense Barolo makes a compelling case for the glories of the 1996...

96 points Vinous: "Another of the truly epic wines of the evening, the 1996 Barolo is sublime. Black cherry, plum, leather, spice and menthol give the 1996 its dark, brooding personality. Powerful, dense and super-appealing, the 1996 has enough depth to drink beautifully for another two decades or more. This is a fabulous example of the best the year has to offer.

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Back on track after its relatively austere showing the year prior, Hillside Select rebounds in 1996 with one of its richest, most succulent renditions to date. Currants, black cherries and sweet oak abound still, and the wine does a fine balancing act between being slightly supple and polished and still having an appropriate backbone of varietal tannins. It outdoes the vintage in terms of its richness and range and sheer wealth of fruit, and it has the right pieces in all the right places to grow for a good many years. *Thr...

91 points Int'l Wine Cellar: "A fruit bomb on the nose, with exotic quince, apricot and fruit aromas. Supersweet and intensely spicy, but slightly hard-edged today, with aggressive alcohol and strong acids giving it a youthful toughness. A very rich, powerful VT with a rather tannic finish. This, too, will need bottle aging to settle down and harmonize."

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Moet & Chandon "Dom Pérignon" Brut Champagne (98RP, 97BH, 96WE, 95JG, 95VN, 94CG, 94ST, 93WS). Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 1996 Dom Perignon, which has largely disappeared from the marketplace, may be the finest young example of DP I have ever tasted. Notes of crushed rocks, honeysuckle, lemon oil, orange marmalade, and white pear provide a stunning aromatic display as well as palate impression. Great acidity and huge flavor intensity backed up by vibrant acidity make this an exquisite Champagne. It should drink well for 20-25 years, possibly longer. Readers should remember that the 1971 Dom Perignon Rose is still drinking exquisitely. I recently had the 1969 and 1970 Dom Perignons (from magnum), and both were drinking brilliantly. It makes one realize just how long-lived these wines can be. (RP)" (12/2005)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Domaine Marius Delarche Pernand-Vergelesses Vieilles Vignes "Boutières". Philippe and Etienne Delarche run a family estate of 9 hectares in the villages of Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. The harvest is hand-picked and the wines made in the traditional manner. For red wines, the grapes are destemmed, then spend 10 to 12 days in the vat. The cap of skins is punched by hand, then the grapes are pressed. During fermentation, the temperature is constantly checked. The wines are racked into barrels and left to mature for around 15 months. The red wines are concentrated, with lovely color and red-fruit aromas; they are complex and perfectly balanced.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94RP, 91ST, 91WS). Wine Advocate: "The opaque blue/purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa boasts an exceptional nose of creme de cassis, minerals, and spice. It takes at least a decade for wines such as this to begin to reveal more identity and vintage character. The cassis/blackberry liqueur-like fruit are present, as are mouth-searing levels of tannin and impressive extract. (RP)" (12/1999)
