1974 Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon  Back In Stock!
1974 Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points John Gilman: "The fruit for this bottling came from vineyards in the Stag’s Leap district and was first released by the winery in October of 1976 for $7.50 per bottle. This was only the third vintage for Bernard Portet at Clos du Val, as the inaugural vintage here was the 1972, so this was still very early days in the history of this estate. At our tasting, the 1974 Clos du Val was not as suave and refined in profile as the superb 1978 bottlings I wrote about a few months back, with a slight coarseness to the tannins on the backend that have re ...Read More »

1974 Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

John Gilman: "The fruit for this bottling came from vineyards in the Stag’s Leap district and was first released by the winery in October of 1976 for $7.50 per bottle. This was only the third vintage for Bernard Portet at Clos du Val, as the inaugural vintage here was the 1972, so this was still very early days in the history of this estate. At our tasting, the 1974 Clos du Val was not as suave and refined in profile as the superb 1978 bottlings I wrote about a few months back, with a slight coarseness to the tannins on the backend that have reportedly been part of the profile of this wine since it was released, and which remain to this day. The winemaking is just not as fine-tuned here in ’74 as would be the case a few years later, and one has to assume Monsieur Portet was still feeling his way with fruit from the Stag’s Leap district, after having been born and raised in Bordeaux. That said, this is

1974 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 1974 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (98RP, 97JG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I had this wine twice over a period of thirty days, rating it an astounding 99 and 98 points. A monumental California Cabernet Sauvignon, it appears to have approached its plateau of maturity but should easily last for 20-25 more years. There is no rust, amber, or brown to the saturated dark purple color. The spectacular, huge, Mouton-Rothschild-like nose of mint, cassis, lead pencil, and toast is remarkably youthful. Staggeringly concentrated, this full-bodied, super-rich wine possesses moderate tannin, fresh, lively acidity, and a blockbuster, rich, fleshy finish. This is a monumental effort! (RP)" (08/1994)

1974 Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1974 Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93VN). Vinous: "Medium red. Sexy ripe aromas of plum, prune and dates are accented by cedar, eucalyptus and caraway seed. At once penetrating and suave on the palate, conveying a fine-grained texture and terrific energy for a 42-year-old Cabernet. Finishes with perfectly integrated, ripe tannins and lovely length and verve. Very sexy juice with considerable class. It strikes me that a bottle of this wine could not possibly cause a hangover.

1974 Sterling "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 1974 Sterling "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (90RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Patience has never been one of my virtues, but after twenty years this wine still seems formidable, and oh so backward and tough. I am beginning to think the tannin will ultimately win the battle between the wine's fruit and structure. The color remains an impressive saturated plum/garnet, with only a hint of amber at the edge. The tight nose reluctantly offers up earthy, truffle-like scents intertwined with aromas of jammy black-cherries, herbs, and wood. Full body and impressive extract remain hallmarks of this twenty-year old wine. However, the ferocious tannin with its astringent bite is more noticeable than ever. I am not giving up on it as there are still too many impressive components...(RP)" (08/1994)

1974 Sterling Merlot Napa Valley
Bid on this bottle of 1974 Sterling Merlot Napa Valley. John Gilman: "Ric Forman made a really lovely and long distance runner merlot in 1974, with some of the same depth and structural integrity of his two superb cabernet sauvignon bottlings in this vintage. The ’74 Merlot remains vibrant and at its peak, offering up scents of backed plums, saddle leather, cigar wrapper, a touch of petroleum jelly and a gentle tariness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and still quite rock solid at the core, with fine focus and grip, still a bit of backend tannin and impressive length on the very well-balanced finish. This does not quite match the cabernets in terms of complexity, but there is life and personality here! (Drink between 2017-2030)" (07/2018)

1974 Charles Krug "Vintage Selection Lot F1" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1974 Charles Krug "Vintage Selection Lot F1" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (92JG). John Gilman: "The Lot F-1 'Vintage Select' is the last Krug wine made from Fay Vineyard fruit by the winery, and may well be the last of the great Charles Krug cabernet sauvignons that had ranked right up at the very pinnacle of California cabernet during the decades of the 1940s and 1950s. The 1974 Lot F-1 has been fully mature for many years but remains in full bloom on both the nose and palate, as it offers up a superb bouquet of dark berries, chipotle peppers, woodsmoke, herb tones, lovely soil nuances, tobacco, a touch of nutskin and a fantastic spice box of Indian spices in the upper register that just become more and more complex and vibrant with extended aeration. On the palate the wine is fullish, complex and velvety, with very little remaining tannins, but such fine balance that it will have no difficulty continuing to drink at a very high level for at least anothe
