92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good dark ruby; slightly hazy. Sappy aromas of black cherry, currant, espresso and earth. Silky and stuffed with fruit. Acidity (from the substantial Petit Verdot component?) is still a bit pronounced, but this wine has the sheer extract to harmonize with bottle aging. Quite powerfully structured and very long on the aftertaste, though not as subtle as the regular '96. (ST)" (06/1999)

New release from one of Oregon's premier Pinot producers. Bethel Heights has all the classic features of an outstanding site: abundant heat, optimum solar exposure, and shallow, well-drained soils of volcanic origin. Their wines are fantastic.

Chateau Pellehaut has been one of our top direct imports for the past year here at K&L. We've visited this prominent Tenereze producer many times over the years and always find great stuff. They're particular unique in the region as one of the few producers using Folle Blanche. Big, spicy, woody flavor explodes from the glass on this well matured brandy. A great crossover style offering a balance between the fruity elegance of the folle blanche, complex rusticity and dark sweet new french oak. There's a huge amount of enjoyment in this bottle for the pri...

98 points Decanter: "This has to be one of the wines of the vintage. More deft and cedary than the bigger boned 1986 vintage (also tasted), this is light delicate and elegant. Again, ink and spice on the nose, with stunning cedar and blackcurrant fruit with a touch of undergrowth, graphite and cigar box. Beautifully fresh with sublime melting tannins. (JS)" (11/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1996 Cos d'Estournel was aged in 65% new oak (unlike the 1995 which was 100%) and is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon ...

94 points John Gilman: "I have always ascribed to the theory that Clos St. Jacques can deliver grand cru quality complexity, but does not quite have the same mid-palate volume as the top grand crus in the village. This was quite apparent in our 1996 tastings, as almost everything served before or after this wine was a grand cru and the differences were self-evident. That said, this is a very, very pretty and stylish wine, wafting from the glass in a classy aromatic constellation of black cherries, red plums, mustard seed, a complex base of soil, gamebird...

Winemaker's Notes: "The grape source is the Wente Estate Vineyard located near Livermore. The vines were planted from a Burgundian clone brought to this region by the Wente family at the turn of the century. The soil is thin, iron-rich clay, underlain by 20-30 feet of gravel subsoil. The grapes were hand-picked and sorted, crushed and pressed. The juice was fermented in 50% new French oak barrels for ten months. The wine was racked, clarified by bentonite fining, and bottled without filtration in August 1997. The combination of old vine fruit pro...

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Impressively saturated ruby-red color. Complex aromas of black raspberry, kirsch, Valrhona chocolate, smoke and gunflint. Tactile and quite concentrated; really dense with extract. Ripe acidity gives the deep flavors lovely clarity. A real fruit essence: the wine somewhat chewy tannins and alcohol are hidden by fruit. (ST)" (12/1998) K&L Notes: Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, unmarred by the...

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Exhibiting a medium-to-dark ruby color and lovely floral aromas of cherries, cassis, leather, and blackberries, this wine has excellent intensity and concentration of black fruits as well as earthy, and stony flavors. This medium-to-full-bodied, harmonious, introverted (particularly after the previous offering), and oily-textured wine also possesses a long and firm finish. (PR)" (08/1998) K&L Notes: Perfumed aromas of cranberries and mocha, with a sweet, fleshy mid-palate and good length.
Price: $799.99

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Chateauneuf du Pape is among the vintage's more seductive wines. Deep and fruity, with gorgeous levels of glycerin, raspberry, and kirsch flavors, it is an up-front, hedonistic wine with surprisingly low acidity, and a succulent, fleshy style. (RP)" (10/1997) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Perfumed, tangy aromas of raspberry, cherry, leather and oak spice; distinctly Burgundian in style. Juicy, spicy and fresh, with good intensity and delineation and a sappy sweetness. No shortage of te...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The color is a dense ruby/black/purple. Reluctant aromas of blueberries, blackberries, minerals, flowers, truffles, and subtle new oak eventually emerge. Elegant on the attack, with sweet ripeness, and a delicate, concentrated richness, the hallmark of this wine is subtlety rather than flamboyance. A sweet mid-palate sets it apart from many of the uninspiring Ausones of the eighties and seventies. The wine is stylish, and presently understated, with tremendous aging potential.

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Spicy, meaty aromas are accented by a cool menthol streak. Toasty blackberrry fruit and bakery spices like anise and cinnamon play together happily on the palate. This is a classy blend, with coffee and a welcome herbal character brought on by 20% Cabernet Franc." (07/2000) Wine Spectator: "Intense, with rangy, sprawling black cherry, plum and wild berry fruit that's in definite need of short-term cellaring to come together. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. " (04/2000) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cell...

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This medium-to-dark ruby-colored wine was outstanding. Profound aromas of deeply ripe red cherries, blueberries, and blackberries steeped in hoisin sauce are followed by a medium-to-full-bodied, beautifully ripened, and silky-textured core of black fruits, beef blood, porcini mushrooms, and hints of earth. This wine's outstanding finish reveals loads of supple tannins complemented by blackberry flavors... Philippe Engel, the fun-loving and highly-talented director of this estate, crafted superb 1996s, but what...

91 points 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) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 1996 Clos de T...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This extraordinary wine is dark ruby-colored and displays awesome aromas of deeply ripe cassis, blackberries, and violets. It is oily-textured, super-extracted, rich, ample, broad, and concentrated. This masculine, structured, and muscular wine is also refined, delineated, and lively. Waves of candied plums, blueberries, and cherries are intermingled with oak spices and mineral flavors in this immensely long and admirable Bonnes Mares. Projected maturity: 2003-2012+. This wine was a first-rate example of its terr...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "(Tasted with same score in 2002, the following review reflects a tasting in 02/1998) Two of the most decadent wines made on planet Earth are the limited production (about 900 cases of each) of Old Vine Grenache. In 1996, there are three offerings, but I only tasted two, the Blewitt Springs and Kangarilla Vineyard. The opaque blue/black-colored 1996 Old Vine Grenache Blewitt Springs offers a blackberry, cassis, and peppery-scented nose. Explosively sweet black fruit hits the palate with considerable weight and un...

Born into a winemaking family in Anjou, Pithon’s career as a vintner began in 1978 when he established his domaine. Pithon has significantly contributed to the recognition of the dry white wines of the Loire Valley as well as the lesser-known Anjou appellation by producing high-quality dry Chenin Blanc from the area, which was known chiefly for sweet wines. He also promoted organic farming, indigenous yeast strains and refraining from chaptalization or acidification, as well as the Burgundian approach of single-plot selections and barrel aging.

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blockbuster wine possesses a profound nose. It exhibits awesomely ripe red and black fruits, raw meat, and Asian spices, all of which are encased in sweet toasty oak. This full-bodied, wide, thick, focused, harmonious, and intense wine releases amazingly powerful layers of candied black cherries and blackberries. It is structured, totally precise, pure, and possesses an exceptionally long finish loaded with abundant sweet tannins. It will require patience. (PR)" (08/1998) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Deep...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Intriguing to compare this directly with the Richebourg 1996 from Leroy: two different styles, both virtuous. Firstly, the DRC appears more mature than Leroy, with a more distinct tawny, brick red rim. The nose is closed at first, and then develops into a lovely, 'warm' bouquet of wild strawberry, hot bricks, cherry and a touch of black coffee. The palate is a reluctant extrovert, bashful at first but then evolving into a stunning; rich wine with ripe cherry, raspberry, plum and cooked meats, all with a refreshin...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing aromas of sweet white flowers, quince, and minerals, the Coteaux du Layon Clos de Ste. Catherine is a thick, unctuous, amazingly sweet and creamy full-bodied wine. Layers of almond extract, fresh red currants and sweetened herbal tea are found in its lively and tightly wound personality. Superbly balanced and admirably long, this harmonious wine has the ability to age for over 20 years in an adequate cellar. Drink it between 1999-2025. (PR)" (10/1997)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Shopping for your cellar? Stash this California Cab away for the next two to ten years and you'll be rewarded. It's deliciously complex, with earth, cedar, plum, currant, black cherry and spice flavors, gaining depth and richness on the dry, firm finish. *Cellar Selection* (JL)" (06/1999)

93 points and a 'Highly Recommended' designation from the Wine Spectator... 'Spicy, floral and perfumed Cabernet, a late-release from the '96 vintage, showing off earthy, cedary black cherry and blackberry flavors, and pretty, toast- and vanilla-scented notes. Unusually supple and polished version of this wine. Drink now through 2007. 4,300 cases made. (Dec-2000)'

98 points 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...

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." (01/2000)

100 points 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 ...

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Very dark red, with ruby highlights. Sappy aroma of red berries, pomegranate and marijuana, plus hints of stewed fruit and burger. Superripe, deep and dry, with the resiny pungency carrying through in the mouth. Seems a bit top-heavy with alcohol. Finishes with tongue-dusting tannins. Impresses with its sheer size, but I much prefer the balance of the following wine. (ST)" (05/1998) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine reveals a murky plum/purple color.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sine Qua Non has produced some spectacular Syrahs, buying fruit from the best sources in Santa Barbara - the Alban, Stolpman, and Bien Nacido vineyards. The 1996 Against The Wall Syrah is cut from the same mold as the 1997. The color is opaque black/purple, and the nose offers a combination of cassis/blackberry jamminess intermixed with tar, pepper, and spice. Thick, massively full, yet wonderfully rich and expansive, with admirable purity and mouth-staining levels of glycerin and extract, this full-bodied, silky...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I was shocked by how backward the 1996 Pontet-Canet was on the three occasions I tasted it in January. This wine possesses superb potential, but it appears a decade's worth of patience will be necessary. The color is a saturated dark purple. With coaxing, the wine offers aromas of black currant jam intertwined with minerals, sweet oak, and spice. A full-bodied wine, it possesses layered, concentrated, sweet fruit, with an elevated level of ripe tannin. (RP)" (04/1999) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wi...

92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, saturated ruby. Perfumed, superripe aromas of crystallized dark berries, roasted coffee and shoe polish. Subtle and extremely youthful, yet the inner-mouth aromatics and sweetness of fruit are already compelling. Very intensely flavored and solidly structured. Superb finishing fruit is more than a match for the wine firm but ripe tannins. Offers great potential. (ST)" (06/1998)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The lavishly-oaked, hedonistically-styled 1996 exhibits a dark plum/purple color. The nose offers up sweet jammy fruit (primarily black currants and cherries) intermixed with toasty new oak. Medium-bodied, with excellent, nearly outstanding richness, a nicely-layered mid-palate, and sweet tannin in the long finish, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age, and should last for 15+ years."

1996 Ben Nevis 23 Year Old "Single Malts Of Scotland" Single Sherry Butt #1479 Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Distilled in 1996, this Highland single malt was aged in a sherry butt that yielded 405 bottles in total. With all the full-bodied character and complex flavour notes you'd expect from a well-aged Ben Nevis, this is a dram to savour slowly. Bottled exclusively for the USA.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 1996 Domaine de Chevalier certainly surpassed my expectations even though I would caution that I think Olivier Bernard has made better vintages since then. Deep in color, the nose is quite captivating with black fruit, brine and crushed stone. I like the strictness here -- very 1996 in style. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a svelte texture. The bead of acidity lends this tension although I found that finish surprisingly backward and just lacked that peacock's tail that would hav...

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Dalla Valle "Maya" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 95ST, 93VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Maya is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Vivid, intense aromas of new saddle leather, plums, black currants, underbrush, and licorice are followed by a full-bodied, sensationally concentrated wine with sweet tannin, a deep, exceptionally pure and concentrated mid-palate, and an opulently-textured finish. It was surprisingly open-knit and delicious when tasted in October, but there is more tannin lurking beneath the surface. (RP)" (01/2000)

Bid on this magnum of 1996 St. Supery "Dollarhide Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L). St. Supery is a visitor favorite along HWY 29 in the Napa Valley, offering terrific hospitality and a wide range of fine wines. The estate's home vineyard is a testament to diversity and quality. From the winery: "St. Supéry’s Dollarhide Estate Vineyard is planted with close to 500 acres of grape vines, leaving the more than 1,000 remaining acres to thrive in their natural state. Vineyard elevations ranging from 600 to 1,100 feet above sea level, 7 different soil series, 13 different soil variations and a unique mesoclimate combine at Dollarhide to create an especially accommodating growing environment. Napa Valley’s warm days and cool nights are slightly exaggerated at Dollarhide because of its elevation and its distance from the cooling effects of San Pablo Bay. This climate yields ripe, luscious, well-balanced grapes that produce well-balanced food wines."

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Domaine Robert Groffier Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru (95RP, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This extraordinary wine is dark ruby-colored and displays awesome aromas of deeply ripe cassis, blackberries, and violets. It is oily-textured, super-extracted, rich, ample, broad, and concentrated. This masculine, structured, and muscular wine is also refined, delineated, and lively. Waves of candied plums, blueberries, and cherries are intermingled with oak spices and mineral flavors in this immensely long and admirable Bonnes Mares. Projected maturity: 2003-2012+. This wine was a first-rate example of its terroir. The meticulous work of Serge Groffier (Robert's son) in the vineyards is evidenced by each glassful of nectar from this well-known and certainly soon-to-be-famous domaine. (PR)" (08/1998)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage (94WE, 93WS, 92JG, 92ST, 91RP). Wine Enthusiast: "In 1996 this extraordinary producer of Hermitage made a wine for the long haul. At release, it displayed superb fruit, bacon, anise, and tobacco flavors, all enveloped by huge tannins. Now it is going through a dumb stage, though the structure is there." (11/1999)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 Francesco Rinaldi Barolo (92JG). John Gilman: "The 1996 Francesco Rinaldi Barolo is a very young and very lovely wine in the making, The bouquet is still fairly primary, but offers up lovely depth and purity to its aromatic mélange of black cherries, sweet balsamic vinegar, road tar, charred wood, spit-roasted game and a fine base of complex soil tones. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and ripely tannic, with a great core of pure fruit, beautiful soil inflection, tangy acids and fine length and grip on the chewy and soil-driven finish. All this fine, old school Barolo needs is more time alone in the cellar. (Drink between 2020-2060) 92+ points" (08/2010)

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. The wine is rock solid at the core and very tannic, though the tannins are ripe and well-integrated into the wine. The finish is very, very long and soil-driven, and this will clearly be one of the most powerful vintages of Haut Brion to emerge since the 1959. It will be superb, b
