1996 Tobermory 22 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

There is only one distillery on the Isle of Mull and while it has a history dating back to the late 1700s, for much of that history, the distillery has been closed. Fortunately for us, in the 1990s the distillery was opened again after its most recent 11 year closure, and has gone back to producing classic island malts. With its small production of less than 1 million liters per year the distillery makes two very different malts today. Tobermory is the namesake malt of the distillery and is generally, although confusingly, not always unpeated. Ledaig is ...

1996 Auchroisk 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Let's get the hardest part out of the way - It's pronounced "Ah-thrusk." This non-peated nutty and spicy malt is the result of hot and fast whisky making. A quick mash of the malt, a short fermentation period, and a rapid boil in the wash still leave this whisky heavy and rich. A style that makes it a cult favorite for drinkers and blender's alike. Located just south of the Burn of Mulben and east of the River Spey, Auchroisk was originally built to supply J&B with malt for their famous blend. There have been distillery bottlings since 1986, but it is mo ...

1996 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

Jancis Robinson: "Quite dark crimson. Savoury, evolved, rather toasty nose. Round and mild and easy to like. (JR)" (02/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A very good example of this estate, the 1996's saturated dark ruby/plum color is accompanied by textbook aromas of black currants, smoky new oak, minerals, and tobacco. Well-made, with moderate tannin, excellent purity, and a medium-bodied, ripe, melted asphalt-flavored finish, this [is a] seductive Lynch-Moussas.

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 ...

1996 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Jeurg Richter’s pre-Climens lunch. This is far more classier than the Hill of Grace ’94 poured alongside. The nose is stout and correct, wonderful precision here with blackberry, blueberry, tobacco, cedar-wood and a touch of cassis. Very sleek and appealing. The palate is medium-bodied with beautiful balance, very fine tannins and that sense of symmetry and focus that top Californian Cabernets can deliver. Superb weight and precision on the finish. Divine, but I would leave this just a couple more years ...

1996 Louise Brison "Legende" Brut Champagne (1.5L)

From our blog "On the Trail" by Kate Soto: "Delphine Brulez, winemaker at Champagne Louise Brison, hails from the Aube, a southwestern enclave in Champagne that has always had a touch of a rebellious streak. Closer in geography, soil, and spirit to Burgundy than to Reims, many winemakers here are leading the grower-producer revolution that is focusing on terroir—that is, single-vineyard, single-vintage, even single-varietal Champagne—in a region where blending has defined the style for centuries. The Aube is, at the very least, making us rethink what we ...

1996 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Vinous: "Ridge's 1996 Monte Bello is an absolute stunner. The bouquet evokes a top Left Bank Bordeaux in a great vintage. Not surprisingly, the Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1996 is very high at 80%. Every bit as compelling on the palate, the 1996 simply exudes class. I am not sure words alone can capture just how vivid the wine is at twenty years of age. Graphite, smoke, tobacco, licorice and a core of dark fruit unfold on the palate as the 1996 shows off its pedigree. Readers lucky enough to own it can look forward to another two decades plus of ...

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. (RP)" (01/2000)

1996 Alejandro Fernandez "Tinto Pesquera" Ribera del Duero

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby color. Initially subdued black raspberry and cassis nose opens to show soil and oak tones of espresso, smoke and earth. Like liquid silk in the mouth; extremely concentrated flavors of sappy blue and black fruits and milk chocolate. Brilliantly harmonious acids. Finishes with explosive fruit and a firm but not especially tough tannic backbone. A great young Pesquera, perhaps ultimately stronger than the '95 but not quite in the class of the extraordinary '94, which I have tasted severa ...

(JS, Web Only-2007)" 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Lynch Bages has a delightful fresh, minty bouquet that does not quite deliver the complexity of recent vintages, nicely perfumed with hints of wilted rose petal developing with time.

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 ...

1996 Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

About 2,000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon are made each year from the steep rocky slopes of vineyards at Mayacamas. Small amounts of cabernet franc and merlot (generally totaling 10% to 15% of the final wine) are blended into the Cabernet Sauvignon. Seven to fourteen days of fermentation on the grape skins are preceded by crushing and destemming. The grapes are then pressed and racked several times in the next few weeks. Two years of large American oak cask aging is followed by a year in 60 gallon French oak barrels. After bottling, these wines are given a ...

A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache, and aged 18 months in small barrels, of which 45% were new, it is a superb, explosively rich, opaque purple-colored wine with a knock-out nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with floral notes, toast, anise, and dried herbs.
