90 points Vinous: "The 1996 Lynch-Moussas is still surprisingly deep in colour, quite limpid, with little sign of its age. The bouquet is classic ‘old school’ Pauillac with pencil shavings infusing the black fruit, touches of cold black tea and mahogany bureau. The palate is medium-bodied with an East Asian-tinged opening, hoisin and a pinch of white pepper. This displays better than expected substance and cohesion, lightly spiced on its finely-tuned and quite vigorous finish. The 1996 is drinking perfectly now and, on this showing, should give another 1...

We sold out of the 1995 in a matter of one e-mail. Now we have the more powerful 1996, with the same old-fashioned label.

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain possesses a black/blue/purple color, and a texture of unctuosity and thickness. Greatness is suggested by a wonderfully sweet mid-section, gorgeous purity, and this humongous wine's overall symmetry. It also possesses sumptuous layers of concentration, remarkably sweet tannin, low acidity, and a 40+ second finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2040. (RP)" (01/2000) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. More floral, aromatic nose of cassis, t...

89-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing a medium-to-dark ruby color and aromas reminiscent of stones and spices drenched in raspberry juice, this wine has superb density on the palate as well as a silky texture and medium-to-full body. This complex, gorgeously ripe, and harmonious wine is filled with cherries, blueberries, earth tones, Asian spices, and a dash of freshly cracked pepper. (PR)" (08/1998) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Dark in color, succulently intense with pure, clean blackberry, violet and cassis notes, this tightens on the ...

Wine Spectator: "Pretty aromas of blackberry and flowers. Medium-bodied, with lovely berry and cherry flavors, fine tannins and a silky finish. (JS)" (11/1999)
Price: $39.99

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "The lighter color remains quite vibrant with absolutely no bricking. The initial hints of secondary development are now present on the textbook Clos des Ducs' aromas of dried rose petals and sour cherries along with a hint of spice. The purity of the sleek and superbly well-focused middle weight flavors is really sensational as there is an intensely tactile impression of stones on the lingering finish that is shaped by bright but not really drying acidity. That said my sense is that this is going to be a race between...

1996 Latour, Pauillac
Back In Stock!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Latour is medium to deep garnet in color with a profound earthy, meaty, gamey nose with hints of blueberry preserves, crème de cassis and pencil shavings. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated and packed with muscular fruit, with a firm, ripe, grainy backbone and epically long finish. Showing much more youthfully than the 2000 tasted on the same day and still possessing bags of youthful fruit in the mid-palate, this beauty is going to go on and on! (LPB)" (02/2019) 98 points Decanter: "Inky black eve...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Monbousquet is an outstanding effort. The wine is slightly tannic, but it exhibits an exotic nose of kirsch liqueur, cassis, roasted herbs, espresso, and mocha. It possesses excellent texture, impressive depth and richness, and sweet toasty oak. The saturated dark ruby/purple color suggests a dense wine. The finish is both long and well-delineated, with moderate tannin. (RP)" (04/1999) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Excellent deep ruby color. Primary aromas of dark berries, cherry, shoe p...
Price: $79.99

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 0.5% Merlot, and 1.5% Petit Verdot) has a dark ruby/plum color and a gorgeous, complex nose of cedar, spice box, cherries, jammy plums and cassis. The wine is fleshy, medium to full-bodied, seductive, and filled with glycerin. The finish is all silk. (RP)" (12/2000)
Price: $129.99

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The virtually perfect 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (330 cases) is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Opaque purple-colored, with a profound bouquet of minerals, flowers, black fruits, and spice, this awesomely concentrated, multi-layered wine represents the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon. Amazingly, it is neither ponderous nor heavy handed, with the oak, acidity, and tannin woven into the wine's formidable, concentrated personality. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. Sadly, it is extremely limited in availability, but...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dal Forno's virtually perfect 1996 is undoubtedly the finest Amarone I have ever tasted. Its inky black/purple color is accompanied by extraordinarily pure, graphite-infused, blackberry, plum, mineral, licorice, and espresso flavors. Despite its monumental intensity and richness, this wine is not heavy, somehow managing to conceal its 17.5% alcohol! As compelling an Italian wine as I have ever tasted, it should prove to be unbelievably long-lived. (RP)" (10/2001) 97 points James Suckling: "Amarone might not be ...
Price: $499.99

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley exhibits a pronounced smoky, espresso bean, and kirsch-scented nose. Round, dense, rich, full-bodied, and open-knit, its low acid flavors are undeniably appealing. Black olives make an appearance in the wine's aromatics as it sits in the glass. (RP)" (01/2000) K&L Notes: Praise for Silver Oak from Robert Parker: "Silver Oak wines are supple, explosively fruity, and deliver copious quantities of glycerin, extract, and richness wrapped in generous qua...

This family-run estate was founded in 1920 by the Livera family, originally from Italy. For the 1996 vintage, Philippe Livera was still at the helm (it's been his son, Damien, since 2007). Bottlings from this era are rare, as, at that time, they sold most of their fruit to negociants. According to the importer, "What sets the Liveras apart is their attention to Gevrey’s collection of unique terroirs. To a one, the family’s villages-level vineyards are natural extensions of premier cru plots; and as such these wines overachieve every vintage, with fine ta...

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)
Price: $34.99

One of Hanzell's fruitier Pinot Noirs. It suggests a black cherry pie with a topping of blackberry, and some red plum thrown in. Emanating through the wine is a full body and the distinctive earthy character of this esteemed estate's hillside vineyards.
Price: $79.99

A rare bird here from cult producer Sine Qua Non--an elegant, Burgundian-styled Pinot Noir from one of the Willamette Valley's most respected plots of vineyard land. How often do you get a shot at something like this--aged to taste and built to last.

1996 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogue Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru Winery-Direct Release
Back In Stock!
95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is very deeply colored, in fact so much so that it would make a young port blush! The ripe aromas of red and blue berries, spice and earth display a mentholated top note. The dense, powerful and mouth coating broad-shouldered flavors possess evident muscularity while delivering excellent length on the youthfully austere finale. This isn't refined, indeed it's borderline rustic, but it's a dramatically impressive and very firmly structured wine that should live for decades." (01/2021) 92-95 points Robert Parker...

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (97VN, 96RP, 95DC, 95ST, 94JG). Vinous: "What a treat it is to taste these two Pichon Lalandes straight from the chateau’s cellar. The 1996 Pichon Lalande is stratospheric from the very first taste. The deep, layered bouquet alone is deeply transfixing. Smoke, mocha, dark spices, lavender, crème de cassis, a host of dark-fleshed fruits and a touch of warm, resonant sweetness from the French oak draw me in. All of those sensations follow through to the palate, where the wine is massive, intense and totally enveloping. Time has softened the tannins to the point the 1996 is ready to drink, but there is enough sheer concentration here to support another 20-30 years of exceptional drinking. (AG) 97+" (02/2016)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 L'Eglise Clinet, Pomerol (94JS, 90RP, 90VN). James Suckling: "Château Eglise Clinet Pomerol 1996: It's agreed among most Bordeaux wine lovers that Right Bank, more specifically Pomerol, made good quality but not great reds in 1996. The 1995 was much better for Merlot and Cabernet Franc. So this 1996 Eglise Clinet came as a big surprise when I tasted it. The red shows wonderful complexity and beauty now. It's full body yet refined with black olive and berry character. It's so balanced and fine now. Very pretty. " (06/2016)
Starting Bid: $110.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1996 Grosset "Gaia" Red Blend Clare Valley South Australia (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-brick in color, the 1996 Gaia opens with a lovely sandalwood, menthol, mocha and dried mulberry nose with a touch of figs and mushrooms. Medium-bodied, crisp and framed by a medium level of velvety tannins, it gives great fruit concentration through the long finish. (LPB)" (02/2013)
Starting Bid: $119.29

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Domaine Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier Musigny Grand Cru (96JG, 92BH). John Gilman: "I was not prepared for the 1996 Mugnier Musigny to show as brilliantly as it did at our tasting, but it is clearly now beginning to blossom and underneath its structural elements there are copious amounts of sappy fruit that were not always readily apparent. The classic and magical nose offers up a fine mélange of cherries, strawberries, beetroot, mustard seed, striking iron-like soil tones, coffee, cocoa, blood orange and forest floor. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very, very transparent, with modest tannins, zesty acids and simply brilliant length on the tangy finish that closes with impressively sweet, sappy fruit. This is a brilliant bottle of Musigny in the making. 96+ " (10/2011)
Starting Bid: $1,351.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Abreu "Madrona Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Madrona Ranch reveals a blueberry/blackberry, creme de cassis character with smoky oak, new saddle leather, licorice, dried herbs, and mineral scents. Expansive, with terrific intensity, purity, and overall symmetry, it has noticeable tannin in the finish. (RP)" (01/2000)
Starting Bid: $430.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Harlan "The Maiden" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (91RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Maiden was performing even better this year. The dark saturated plum/purple color is followed by aromas of prunes, coffee, black fruits, and espresso beans. With an opulent personality, low acidity and a plush texture, it is a sexy, well-endowed wine. (RP)" (01/2000)
Starting Bid: $500.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Margaux, Margaux (100RP, 97JD, 96ST, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Chateau Margaux, a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, must be a strong contender for wine of the vintage. It offers everything you desire from this First Growth. It is blessed with breathtaking delineation and freshness on the nose, understated at first and then blossoming with mineral-infused black fruit, hints of blueberry, crushed stone and violet. The palate is perfectly balanced with filigree tannin, perfect acidity, a wine where everything seems to be in its right place. Blackberry, crushed stone at the front of the mouth, just a touch of spice towards the finish that shows supreme control. (NM)" (10/2016)
Starting Bid: $651.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien (98RP, 96ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Léoville-Las Cases is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 16% Cabernet Franc picked between 25 September and 10 October (for fascinating insight, read Robert Parker's remarks about the blend with Michel Delon in the original tasting note). Now at 20 years, it has evolved into an absolutely stunning Saint Julien, clearly one of the best wines from the estate this decade. The bouquet is beautifully defined with intense black cherries, cedar, mint and a touch of oyster shell that seems to gain intensity in the glass. (NM)" (10/2016)
Starting Bid: $743.88

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan (94JG, 93WS, 92RP, 92ST, 91JS). John Gilman: "The 1996 Haut Brion is less hermetically sealed than the 1998, and is beginning to hint a bit at its secondary layers of aromatic complexity, though it still remains a very young wine. The bouquet is deep and classic, as it jumps from the glass in a mélange of black cherries, dark berries, Cuban tobacco, incipient notes of the black truffles to come, and a fine base of Graves earth. I assume that the 1996 saw the same amount of new oak as the 1998, but there is little sign of the wood at the present time. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and very intense, with a quite powerful profile for Haut Brion. . " (06/2007)
Starting Bid: $355.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Domaine du Clos de Tart (Mommessin) Clos de Tart Grand Cru (91DC). Decanter: "Still deep in colour, with elegant, pure scents more dominated now by refined spice, mushroom and violet than fruit. On the palate, the wine seemed high-cheek-boned and dramatic compared to the affably generous 2007. Acidity does the main structuring work here, but it is ripe, resonant, well-seasoned acidity and this willowy wine remains well-composed and scented to the finish. (AJ)" (04/2017)
Starting Bid: $345.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1996 Clarendon Hills "Astralis" Shiraz South Australia (98RP, 96WS, 95ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-colored, the 1996 Astralis wows right from the start with an incredibly profound nose of meat and fertile loam intermingling with black truffles, black cherry and black plum preserves plus a whiff of Christmas cake. Ripe, rich and seductive, the medium to full-bodied palate is generous and refreshing with crisp acid, medium levels of rounded tannins and a finish that lingers a very long time. It is mature, for drinking now. (LPB)" (02/2014)
Starting Bid: $725.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Renato Ratti "Marcenasco Rocche" Barolo ((90-91RP), 90ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Barolo Marcenasco Rocche exhibits an impressively endowed ruby/purple color, and an aggressive nose of roasted herbs, spices, and black cherry and berry fruit. Full-bodied, with subtle oak in the background, this dense, full-bodied, concentrated, highly-extracted wine is a classic. (RP)" (08/1999)
Starting Bid: $60.00

Bid on this 8-bottle lot of 1996 Clarendon Hills Clarendon Merlot (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-brick in color, the 1996 Merlot exudes notes of Chinese dried plums, truffles, earth and spice box accented by hints of game and tobacco. On the palate, it is medium to full-bodied with rich, spicy and savory flavors framed with balanced acid, medium to firm, grainy tannins and a long finish. Mature for drinking now. (LPB)" (02/2014)
Starting Bid: $240.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (100RP, 98DC, 97JS, 97VN, 96ST, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted three times since bottling, the 1996 Lafite-Rothschild is unquestionably this renowned estate's greatest wine. As I indicated last year, only 38% of the crop was deemed grand enough to be put into the final blend, which is atypically high in Cabernet Sauvignon (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot). This massive wine may be the biggest, largest-scaled Lafite I have ever tasted. It will require many years to come around, so I suspect all of us past the age of fifty might want to give serious consideration as to whether we should be laying away multiple cases of this wine. (RP)" (04/1999)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Montrose, St-Estèphe (96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It was served alongside the 1986 Montrose, however, this is a far better wine and reconfirms Robert Parker's remarks at his own vertical at the property in 2014. For me, it is that loamy character that defines the nose—freshly tilled, damp soil that tinctures the black fruit —that takes you straight to this particular château. This is classic through and through and very well defined. The palate is wonderful with very fine delineation, pitch-perfect acidity, touches of graphite infusing the red and black fruit that dovetails into a very pretty, floral finish. (NM)" (03/2017)
