1981 Lakespring Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)
New!
These library wines from Lakespring Winery have immaculate provenance and were purchased directly from the original owner of the property. They have spent the past few decades in commercial wine storage and were hand-delivered to K&L and inspected bottle by bottle. As with all old wines the corks can be fragile and we recommend using a Durand opener or other ah-so style opener for best results. The wines may also contain natural sediment.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby with no signs of age, this wine offered up a light intensity, spicy, elegant, innocuous bouquet, exhibited ripe, medium-bodied, attractive flavors, and a compact, angular finish. (RP)" (03/1992)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Polished, big, dark-colored, with rich and opulent aromas and flavors and loads of tobacco, cedary and berry character. (JS)" (10/1994) K&L Notes: 90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "It has a light but well defined bouquet with notes of redcurrant, boysenberry, mint leaf and cedar with good intensity and vigour. It reminds more of Las-Cases ’81 in some ways. The palate is medium-bodied with a dry, quite savoury entry, powdery and slightly edgy tannins. The fruit appears to be fading although the secondary flavours and comp...

Wine Spectator: "A fine mature claret with an impressive freshness. Excellent ruby color with subtle aromas of cherry and green tobacco. This wine shows vivid fruit flavors with mineral undertones and a fine silky texture of tannins. Delicious now but should improve." (10/1994)
Price: $139.99

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine has just begun its slide down the slippery slope. It was an outstanding La Conseillante that drank beautifully young. Once the baby fat began to fade in the mid-nineties, the wine was less enticing, although still an excellent, and perhaps outstanding if drunk from larger format bottles (i.e., magnum). The wine possesses a deep ruby color with some lightening at the edge. The toasty, cherry and raspberry-scented nose is followed by smoky, roasted herb, sweet cherry and raspberry flavors judiciously infused with s...

We love these so-called off vintages from the classic producers because you get much more bang for your buck. '81 Pichon is a long time K&L favorite. Robert Parker says… 'The 1981 is a very successful wine, with a more compact aromatic and flavor profile than the 1982. In that sense it is more classic than the flamboyant 1982. Unlike many 1981s, Pichon Lalande achieved wonderful ripeness, and the result is a medium-bodied, richly fruity, fragrant wine without the greenness and astringent tannins that so many 1981s possess. The finish is long and sup...

1981 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes
Back In Stock!
According to Robert Parker: "Quite exceptional, the 1981 Lafaurie-Peyraguey exhibits ripe apricot aromas, a rich, chewy, viscous texture, good acidity, and a long, sweet, fat finish. This wine displays considerable botrytis, and is clearly one of the top efforts in this vintage." (Bordeaux Book, 1998)

92 points John Gilman: "For drinking at the present time, it is hard not to love the more middleweight vintage of 1981 at Pichon-Lalande. The wine is at its absolute apogee of peak drinkability at the present time, wafting from the glass in a beautiful and quite classic aromatic blend of sweet cassis, cigar wrapper, gravelly soil tones, a touch of chipotle pepper, cigar ash and a whisper of merlot-derived sweet herb in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and utterly suave on the attack, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip, mel...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1981 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (91RP, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine is close to full maturity, but it is capable of holding for another two decades. It reveals the classic Lafite bouquet of red and black fruits, cedar, fruitcake, and tobacco-like aromas. In the mouth, this medium ruby/garnet-colored wine displays a delicacy of fruit and sweet attack, but subtle, well-defined flavors ranging from tobacco, cigar box, cedar, and fruitcake. This is a savory, soft Lafite-Rothschild that is pleasing to both the intellect and the palate. (RP)" (12/1997)

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1981 Caymus "Grace Family Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in original wood. Grace Family Vineyard, planted with cuttings from the famed Bosché vineyard, began as a family hobby--their first vintage, 1978, was brought to Charlie Wagner's Caymus Winery in the back of a station wagon. Chuck liked what he tasted, and the rest is history. James Laube: "Effusively fruity and forward, with elegant, supple cherry and plum aromas and flavors that lack the concentration of Grace's finest. Needs more time..." (The Wine Spectator's Ultimate Guide - California's Great Cabernets, pg182, 1989) Robert Parker: "Few wineries in the world can boast such an enviable record of consistent excellence as that of Caymus." (10/1993)

The wine is at its absolute apogee of peak drinkability at the present time, wafting from the glass in a beautiful and quite classic aromatic blend of sweet cassis, cigar wrapper, gravelly soil tones, a touch of chipotle pepper, cigar ash and a whisper of merlot-derived sweet herb in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish and utterly suave on the attack, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip, melting tannins and impeccable balance on the long and complex finish. A lovely vintage of Pichon. " (07/2016)
