Writer Dan Berger praised this wine in 1990s in the Los Angeles Times...please note, prices may have changed! "For those who can't find or afford the Special Selection, a superb approximation of it is Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet, which recently leaped in price from $18 to $22 because of demand. (Some stores may not yet have marked bottles up.) The 1985 and 1986 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernets are spectacular wines in their own right, both of which will age handsomely for a decade or more. If you feel $22 is a bit high for a Cabernet, consider this: I have t...

1985 Angélus, St-Émilion
Top Pick!
94 points Wine Spectator: "Intense and already complex, with lots of spice, toffee and coffee elements to the blackberry fruit, supple texture, distinctive and full of personali ty. Distinguished and elegant. *Cellar Selection*" (03/1988) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1985 is a seductively smooth, supple, broadly flavored wine with aromas and flavors of berry fruit and herbs. Full-bodied, concentrated, and delicious... (RP)" (08/1993)

1985 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (high shoulder fills)
Back In Stock!
99 points James Suckling: "What an awe-inspiring nose of currants, shaved lead pencil, white truffles and earth. It's full-bodied and enveloped by silky tannins that lead to an earthy, long finish. Old, traditional Bordeaux with soul and remarkable complexity. Sensational." (10/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The rich, complex, well-developed bouquet of oriental spices, toasty oak, herbs, and ripe fruit is wonderful. On the palate, the wine is also rich, forward, long, and sexy. It ranks behind both Haut-Brion and Chateau Margaux in 198...

Bid on this 1.5 liter 3-bottle lot of 1985 Louis Martini "Duke's 20" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L). The story of Louis Martini is a key chapter in Napa's winemaking history. Genovese immigrant Louis Martini established his first business in 1922, smack in the middle of Prohibition (in force in the US from 1919 until 1933). He was therefore limited to making "sacramental and medicinal" wines at first. With the end of prohibition, Martini became one the first winemakers in California to produce vintage varietal table wines in quantity, and at reasonable prices. His son's 1968/70 Merlot was the first varietal Merlot made in the US. Sourced from prime vineyards in Napa and Sonoma, including Monte Rosso in the mountains above Sonoma Valley and La Loma in the cool Carneros district south of Napa, and made with care and expertise, Louis Martini wines have aged exceptionally well. With their hallmark of impeccable balance, older Louis Martini Cabs never cease to amaze.

Bid on this magnum of 1985 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (93RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is unquestionably one of the super-stars of the 1985 vintage. Previously, I have consistently rated it from the mid to upper nineties in all my tastings. In this tasting, the wine was atypically backward and not nearly as flattering and precocious as it has been. It exhibited some of the intense, exotic perfume (hickory smoke, blackcurrants, vanilla, and Asian spices) and sweet, opulent, fleshy palate it has always possessed, but the tannin was more noticeable and the wine was more structured, as well as extremely youthful and unevolved. This rich, full-bodied Cask 23 appears to have developed a greater sense of delineation. It may be even longer-lived than I initially expected. I suspect that if this particular bottle had not been stored in such a cold cellar (my own), the wine may have been more forward and advanced. (RP)" (04/1995)

Bid on this magnum of 1985 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (97VN). Vinous: "I went through my Dunn phase 6-7 years ago, just when we were getting Vinous started. I tasted the wines often, bought maybe more than I should have for my own cellar, and really tried to get inside these powerful mountain Cabernets. A recent bottle of the 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain took me back to those days. I don’t know why – I have had the 1985 a number of times – and yet I was shocked by its concentration, its aromatic intensity, and its sheer youthfulness. Dark, deep and beautifully resonant, but not at all heavy, the 1985 still possesses extraordinary richness while remaining very much classic in feel. Graphite, cured meats, smoke, licorice, incense and grilled herbs add tons of Howell Mountain savoriness. Dunn sourced fruit from four vineyards for the 1985: Trailer, Harry Frank, Beatty Ranch and La Jota. (AG)" (09/2019)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1985 Latour, Pauillac (92DC). Decanter: "At 35 years old this still tastes like a young wine, even with evident sweet oak notes that make you almost do a double-take and check the date on the label. It has a lot of upfront impact and an enjoyable density to the blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, but perhaps a little less nuanced than its Pauillac neighbours at this point, and a shorter palate overall. The tannic grip is still evident, and this feels very much anchored in Pauillac, with touches of liquorice and mint. No third wine at the time, meaning the selection was a little less strict than it would become a few years later. The final few years of a long-ago era at Latour, when the estate was headed up by Jean-Paul Gardère and Henri Martin, with Lord Cowdray owner. (JA)" (01/2021)

Bid on this 3 liter 1-bottle lot of 1985 Duckhorn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (3L) in original wood. Duckhorn has been producing Cabernet Sauvignon since 1978. Blending fruit from estate vineyards and top Napa Valley growers, their wine embodies the complexity of the valley, while offering a seamless balance between fruit, oak and tannins. Duckhorn is consistently ranked as one of California's top Napa Cabernets with a proven track record for long-term aging.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1985 La Maison Rouget Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Beaumonts" (93BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "While there is the initial hints of bricking, the nose is still quite fresh with pretty spice, stone and secondary fruit aromas leading to rich, detailed and equally mineral-driven middle weight flavors that culminate in a focused, delicious, mouth coating and impressively lingering finish. I very much like the underlying sense of harmony and overall balance and unlike many '85s that are tiring today, this is going to be with us for years to come." (10/2010)
