91 points John Gilman: "The 1996 Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil “Vieilles Vignes” is the first wine I have ever tasted from Domaine Taluau and I was quite impressed. Monsieur Taluau started with a couple of hectares of vines in 1970 and has planted more on his estate as the years have allowed; he was joined full-time at the domaine by his daughter Véronique and her husband, Thierry Foltzenlogel in 1993. The domaine’s ’96 Vieilles Vignes bottling of Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil is deep and complex on the nose, offering up scents of dark berries, cassis, tree ba...

94 points Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cardinale is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot, of which 62% came from Napa and 38% from Sonoma. Just under 3,000 cases were produced. It is also a top rank wine, and a star of the vintage. A saturated purple color is followed by licorice, cedar, fruit cake, and black currant aromas. Full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated, with low acidity but high tannin, this young, muscular classic should have fabulous aging potential.(RP)" (01/2000) 91 points Int'l Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Bordeaux-like aromas ...

94 points Wine Spectator: "This classy, international-style Piedmont red seduces with gorgeous violet, floral, toasted oak and black currant aromas and flavors. An earthy, Syrah-like note adds complexity. Full-bodied and thick, it remains racy from a good level of acidity and has a lovely, fresh, clean finish. Made from Syrah. " (11/1999)

92 points Wine Spectator: "This red blend from Washington displays remarkable density of flavor on a sleek frame. A smooth and generous wine, its black raspberry, cherry, currant and coffee flavors wrap themselves seductively in a blanket of fine-grained tannins. Lasts and lasts on the finish. From the partnership between Chateau Ste. Michelle and Italy's Marchesi Antinori. Contains 85 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 15 percent Merlot. (HS)" (06/1999)

1996 Margaux, Margaux (lightly bin-scuffed label)
Top Pick!
100 points 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 ...

PlumpJack Winery sits squarely in the heart of Napa Valley’s renowned Oakville region, surrounded by a 42-acre estate vineyard highly regarded for the quality of its Cabernet Sauvignon. Both the winery building and the vineyard date back to the 1800s, when winemaking pioneers first took advantage of a unique position on the valley floor. The east side of the vineyard lies along the foothills of the Vaca mountain range and yields grapes with the kind of bold fruit character that comes from well-draining hillside soils. To the west, the estate lies in the ...

92 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderful texture, polish and finesse, with a pretty core of currant, black cherry, plum and spice. Rounds out nicely on the complex finish, with a firm edge to the tannins. Drink now through 2008." (11/99)

91 points Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1996 La Conseillante has always been a good performer in what is a Left Bank vintage. Although there is noticeable bricking on the rim, there is plenty of freshness on the nose, quite floral with crushed strawberry, cranberry leaf and a touch of tomato vine, which after ten minutes turns into black truffle (typical trait in Pomerol). There is good vigor here for a 20-year-old Pomerol. The palate is medium-bodied and here you could argue that it is more advanced than the aromatics. Yes, there is good we...

1996 Latour, Pauillac (lightly scuffed label)
99 points 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 even at 25 years ol...

92 points Wine Advocate: "The dense ruby/purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard reveals a gorgeous nose of sweet cassis fruit, chocolate, iron, and licorice. Full-bodied, powerful, and weighty, with moderately high tannin, it requires 3-4 years of cellaring. It should last 25+ years." (01/2000) 90 points Int'l Wine Cellar: "Very good deep ruby. Sweet, nutty aromas of chocolate, mocha, mint, graphite and tobacco leaf. Tightly wound but not hard, despite showing flavors of inky licorice and mint. Finishes fairly long, with tongue-coating ...

93 points Vinous: "Cedar, scorched earth and mint blossomed on a nose that is firmly into its secondary phase, yet laden with more fruit than expected considering both its age and the austere style of Left Bank 1996s. The palate might be nearing the end of its drinking plateau, so don’t hold back if you own a few bottles. But I admired its balance and density, its structure and classicism, and the typical Pauillac traits of cedar and a touch of mint toward the finish. I savored it down to the last drop.

1996 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L)
Back In Stock!
95 points Wine Advocate: "Aged 22 months in 100% new French oak, this blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot reveals a powerful core of red and black fruits, dusty, loamy soil, lavender and a hint of toast. I would not describe it as elegant, but rather, it is a big, backstrapping, Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine that should continue to drink well for 15 or more years. (RP)" (11/2013)

94 points James Halliday: "Cabernet excels in these parts. The volume is simply turned up: extract and application of tannins – grape and oak – needed to corral the fruit. Yet this sort of Mediterranean expression remains true to varietal personality when executed well. And here it is: cassis, mulch, sage, bayleaf, tapenade and ample oak, positioned as chamois tannins. Brusque, but all high quality. Needs time." (03/2022) Wine Spectator: "Firm, chewy and spicy, with dark cherry, anise and herb flavors on a solid foundation. Has some tannin to lose, but...

93 points Wine Advocate: "This is unquestionably a profound Grand-Puy-Lacoste, but it is excruciatingly backward. It reveals an essence of creme de cassis character which sets it apart from other Pauillacs. The wine is displaying plenty of tannin, huge body, and sweet black currant fruit intermixed with minerals and subtle oak. Massive, extremely structured, and with 25-30 or more years of longevity, this immensely-styled Grand-Puy-Lacoste will require 7-8 years of patience, perhaps longer. A superb, classic Pauillac.

Full-bodied, with impressive purity, a multi-layered mid-palate and finish, it is an expressive, pure, powerful, and large-boned wine.

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Krug Brut Champagne (100W&S, 99ST, 99WS, 98RP, 98VN, 97JG, 96DC). Wine & Spirits: "It's hard to imagine how a wine of this power can sustain perfect balance. What is now a more nonchalant intensity in the aroma was, in fact, too much to handle when we tasted this last year, as if the wine had no time for mere humans with their limited sense receptors. If you stop to taste ripe pear, ginger spice, apple blossom and butterscotch the wine leaves you lost in random flavor descriptors as it soars off into a vinous glow that lasts for minutes. This may well be the greatest vintage wine of Henri Krug's career (unless it is challenged by the 2002). It is impossible to predict how long this wine will thrive in bottle, though considering the current fine condition of the 1959 Krug, the first 50 years are a given." (12/2008)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1996 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Rouge, Pessac-Leognan (90RP). Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is the quintessentially elegant Bordeaux. With a dark ruby/purple color, it displays a beautiful presentation of blackberry and cassis fruit nicely dosed with subtle new oak. On the attack, the wine is sweet and pure, with striking symmetry, and a compellingly balanced mid-palate and finish. Although not as big as some blockbusters from this vintage, it is extremely complex (both aromatically and flavor-wise), and impressive for its restraint, subtlety, and impeccable balance. (RP)" (04/1999)

Bid on this 8-bottle lot of 1996 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion (92RP). Wine Advocate: "Not having encountered this vintage for ten years, I was pleasantly surprised by the good showing of this Saint Emilion. It has a masculine nose with blackberry, dark plum and those black truffles that mutate into undergrowth aromas with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a silky smooth entry, a hint of sea-salt at the back of the mouth, nicely structured with a touch of bay leaf on the convincing finish. Drinking perfectly now.

90 points Wine Advocate: "As I suspected, the 1996 Lafleur is a painfully backward, austere wine that represents a modern day clone of this estate's 1966. It possesses a backward, tannic, Medoc-like character, with none of Pomerol's hallmark generosity. The wine exhibits a saturated dark purple color, as well as a distinctive mineral, black raspberry, and berry-scented nose with the steely, mineral Lafleur character well-displayed. Powerful, long, and rich, but excruciatingly tannic, this wine may or may not resolve all of its tannin. In short, it is an ...

Bid on this 7-bottle lot of 1996 Talbot, St-Julien (93DC, 91WS, 90VN). Decanter: "At this stage the colour is firmly in the rich claret zone - ruby red, not overly intense but full of life. The wine is very enjoyable and has that lovely St-Julien signature of rich black fruits floating over a bed of air, as the acidity in the Cabernet takes flight. This gives it a sense of poise and confidence, and again the signature mouthwatering finish. It's not going for intensity and punch, but for complexity and elegance without sacrificing fruit - there are dark, spicy notes in here. It sits with you, dealing out slowly but surely the idea of balance. (JA)" (12/2018)

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Billecart-Salmon ''Grand Cuvée'' Brut Champagne (95RP). Wine Advocate: "Drunk from magnum (which saw tirage under natural cork), Billecart's 1996 Brut Grande Cuvée is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of fresh and confit citrus mingled with crisp orchard fruit, freshly baked bread, oystershell and honeycomb. It's medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy, with racy acids and a concentrated core of fruit, complemented by a pinpoint mousse. (WK)" (03/2022)

Bid on this 8-bottle lot of 1996 Tourelles De Longueville, Pauillac. The fantastic second wine of Pichon-Baron. Delicious concentrated fruit with toasty new oak that's well-integrated. Chocolate and herbal notes along with sweet fruit make this the perfect wine for Cabernet lovers that want to introduce themselves to delicious Bordeaux without breaking the bank.

Bid on this magnum of 1996 Domaine du Chateau de Meursault Beaune 1er Cru "Grèves" (1.5L). A rare, well-aged magnum! Decanter describes bottles from the mild 1996 vintage as "Pure, elegant wines with the ability to age, " and this lives up to the billing.

Bid on this 9-bottle lot of 1996 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien (91ST, 91VN, 90WS). Vinous: "Dark ruby. Deep, brooding nose hints at dark plum, blackcurrant, coffee and lavender accented by cinnamon and nutmeg. Enters bright and fresh, then turns richer in the middle, with accessible plum, herb and coffee flavors persisting nicely on the peppery finish, which features chewy tannins. This is at once more herbal and more forward than the 1995. It's also better than I remember it, and although still quite young it offers plenty of appeal. The wine's harmonious acidity makes it seem lighter-bodied than it is. About 40% of the malolactic fermentation was carried out in barriques, compared to a normal one-third. Note that the label states 12.5% alcohol, but the data given to me by the estate shows 13% alcohol. (ID) 91+" (04/2013)
Starting Bid: $630.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Canon, St-Emilion. Wine Spectator: "Some good berry and tobacco character but slightly herbal. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins, but a diluted center-palate. Rather light for Canon." (01/1999)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 12-bottle lot of 1996 Rauzan-Ségla, Margaux (97DC, 90JD, 90RP, 90VN, 90WS). Decanter: "23 years old and yet one of the best wines in the vertical, this has real power and grip, still with a tannic buildup through the palate that's packed full of the Left Bank signatures: menthol, cassis, dark brambled fruits, cedar, cold ash and liquorice. It has great freshness on the nose, and it's still so young and full of beauty. Easily one of the most exciting wines here. (JA)" (04/2019)
