1997 Ledaig 21 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Unchill-filtered Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The odd and wonderful Tobermory distillery is one of Scotland's most picturesque and divisive. Only the Jura Distillery has more disperate opinions of their products. But something that almost every peat lover can agree on is the fact that the distiller's peated line, Ledaig, is an absolute dream. And it's remained in relative obscurity until recently. We've had a good deal of independents offer us Ledaig over the years, but it's almost always young stocks in very quiet hogsheads. That's simply because the mark is only produced a few weeks out of the yea...

1997 Benriach 21 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Rum Barrel Finish Cask Strength Unchill-filtered Speyside Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
We once could bottle wonderful casks of BenRiach distillery direct at extremely reasonable prices with no trouble. This unusual distillery has always been a favorite of ours, filled with experiments left over from their corporate past and their adventurous new owners. One of the few Speysides to still boast a malt floor and it was always exciting to see the unusual experiments that were hiding in the old warehouses at BenRiach. But at some point in the last 5 years, the prices climbed into the stratosphere and when the distillery sold to Brown Forman, ou...

1997 Blair Athol 21 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Refill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
Sharing many characteristics with Speyside's Auchroisk, the Highland's Blair Athol is another Diageo workhorse distillery. Sitting just outside the town of Pitlochry, Blair Athol sees a hot and fast production process which lends a singed and nutty base note to the whisky. A cloudy wort and controlled level of solids coming across in the wash still give it an even heftier and richer character. Famous for it's ability to age well in sherry cask, we have historically sought out heavily sherried versions of this wonderful malt. In selecting this cask, we ha...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Vanilla and cream, cocoa, and herbs really jazz up the medium-berry nose. Dark sweet fruit in the mouth, with some earth and cedar for substance. Bitter chocolate and espresso add backbone to the medium-length finish. Good and balanced, and not bad for current consumption." (11/2000) 91 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2000* Rich and layered, with ripe blackberry, cherry and mocha flavors that finish with soft tannins framing mellow herbal and coffee notes."

1997 Grgich Hills Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
Wine Spectator: "Complex, if a bit restrained, offering plenty of richness, oak and firm tannins, currant, herb and olive flavors. Finishes with firm tannins. " (05/2001) K&L Notes: Winemaker Mike Grgich says this of his 1997 Cab: "Our Cabernet is traditionally blended along the lines of a classic Bordeaux. Building on a solid base of Cabernet Sauvignon for the 1997 vintage, we added 10% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and a dash of Petit Verdot to create a finished wine with great complexity and pinpoint balance. This wine will continue to soften and become...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon...ranks alongside the finest Tony Soter has produced. Don't miss it! Opaque purple-colored, with a gorgeously seamless personality, this unfined/unfiltered wine exhibits classic aromas of cassis, licorice, chocolate, and toast. Rich and full-bodied, with sweet tannin, a multilayered mid-palate, and a terrific finish, it possesses accessibility and opulence...(RP)" (06/2000) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (12/2000) 92-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "From one of the largest and most highly touted vintages in a great decade, this is large and fairly fat. The cassis, fruitcake and menthol nose and sweet blackberry and chocolate palate aim to please…and do just that. It feels a bit low in acidity, making it lush and forward, displaying a bit of heat and a looser structure. Still, this pleasure package is young, and the long, dark finish shows even, well-dispersed tannins." (04/2002) K&L Notes: "An elegant, intensely concentrated wine with vibrant blackberry and black cherry...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Dense in texture and distinctive in flavor, with floral, spicy, peppery notes swirling around the black cherry flavor at the core. Has more fruit and less obvious oak than previous vintages; as a result it feels a bit raucous now, but there's plenty of character packed into it." (09/1999) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Black cherry, licorice, smoke, herbs and spices on the nose, plus a slight medicinal quality. Juicy and intensely flavored, with sound supporting acidity; initially seemed rather ...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine, produced by winemaking consultant Heidi Barrett, is impressive. There are 600 cases of the 1997, all from a 3.5-acre Cabernet Sauvignon parcel planted with the Grace clone. Sweet, rich, full, and concentrated is the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by pure black currant fruit intertwined with tobacco, vanillin, and spice. This lush, full-bodied effort displays sweet tannin, and cuts a powerful swath across the palate. The finish reveals high extraction and harmony. It will ...

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Cassis, violet and lightly tarry, spicy oak. Ripe, dense and very concentrated; thick and deep. Not at all overly sweet or dominated by the wood. Has superb material and verve. Finishes very long, with thoroughly ripe tannins. The finest vintage for this wine in a long time, and one that avoids the excesses of (American) oak that have plagued so many recent vintages." (12/2000)
Price: $229.99

93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark, rich, smooth and chocolaty, with a pretty core of earthy currant, plum and blackberry accented by hints of mineral and cedar. Finishes with a gush of fruit and mocha. Tannins are firm and supple. (JL)" (08/2001)
Price: $144.99

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Light to medium-bodied, with pleasant spicy tobacco and sweet black cherry/berry fruit. (RP)" (04/2000) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Moderately saturated medium ruby. Plum, tar, tobacco and leather on the slightly roasted nose. Juicy and restrained in the mouth, with flavors of plum, smoke and tobacco and a faint herbaceous element. Offers modest texture and sweetness but good vinosity and personality. (ST)" (05/2000) K&L Notes: This wine is perfect right now! Packed with ripe fruit and not a hard edge ...

1997 Franciscan Oakville Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
Wine Spectator: "Smooth, with integrated herb, cherry and currant flavors. Firms on the finish, with a touch of greenness to the tannins." (04/2000) K&L Notes: Older Franciscan wines are well regarded by Napa acolytes and in the excellent vintage of 1997, this wine will hit all the right notes - quality, taste, longevity, and value.

1997 Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis and enticing smoky oak. Smooth on the palate but with very good delineation and verve. This comes across as fruitier than the merlot. Juicy but not especially fleshy. Ripe, dusty tannins spread out nicely over the palate. (ST)" (05/2000) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Full black-currant aromas with some briar and dust. Blackberry fruit on the palate, but most of all lots of charred oak manifested as coffee and bitter chocolate. In golf, this wou...

90-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Exotic, enticing aromas of black fruits, cherry cough syrup, roast coffee and caramel, along with pungent oakiness. Sweet, fat and thick in the mouth, but with adequate framing acidity. Quite ripe on the back end, with much finer tannins than the foregoing '97s. (ST)" (06/1999) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Only 55% of the harvest was utilized for the 1997 Mouton-Rothschild. One of the most forward and developed Moutons over recent years, it possesses all the charm and fle...

The 1997 vintage is one of the most sought after in recent memory for the 'Super Tuscan' category. This winery sits just to the west of the middle of Chianti Classico and has found a niche that certainly challenges their Chianti neighbors. 'Saxa Calida' is Latin for HOT ROCKS and this vineyard is covered with rocks and when the blazing Tuscan sun warms those rocks during the day they hold the heat and radiate it back once the sun goes down. This is a powerful yet supple blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of new French oak. Extraordinary ...

99 points Wine Spectator: "An extraordinary effort. Dark, firm, richly flavored and beautifully structured, with a deeply concentrated core of currant, black cherry, cedar, anise and coffee. Finishes with an amazingly long and richly flavored aftertaste. *Highly Recommended* (JL)" (10/2000)
Price: $274.99

92 points Wine Spectator: "Grows on you. Rich and earthy, with complex herb, currant, sage and cedary oak notes, all folding together nicely and finishing in a concentrated aftertaste. *Cellar Selection* (JL)" (10/2000) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note provided." (12/2000)

94 points Robert Parker: "The dazzling 1997 Syrah Saralee's Vineyard was bottled with neither fining nor filtration. A blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier, it boasts wicked aromatics consisting of roasted meats, black fruits, cassis liqueur, and bacon. This succulent, fleshy, flamboyantly-styled Syrah is open-knit and accessible, but it is full-bodied, low in acidity, and loaded with fruit. It is a hedonistic Syrah to drink over the next 10-15 years." (01/2000) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and concentrated, with well-integrated blueberry, plum, violet...

According to the Wine Spectator: "Dark, dense, chewy and chunky, with tightly wound currant, coffee, mocha and pencil lead flavors, finishing in a rich aftertaste. Drink now through 2010." (05/01)
Price: $49.99

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This older release is paired with the 2011 Riserva in a special packaging effort now proposed by the new management team at Tenuta Greppo. The Biondi-Santi 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva was never previously reviewed; therefore, I am very excited to add an official record of this stunning wine to our database. This vintage delivers structure and age-worthy intensity that should carry it forward successfully for more years ahead. However, if you decide to pop the cork now, rest assured that this excellent Bru...

92 points Wine Spectator: "*** Highly Recommended *** Delicious California Merlot, ripe and juicy, with pretty, rich, elegant black cherry, currant, cassis and wild berry flavors that hold their focus on a long, lively finish. (JL)" (09/2000) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "A classy Merlot, sleek and well structured, with hints of blackberry, chocolate, anise, herb and toast that are securely nestled inside. Firm, ripe tannins frame the ensemble, which should really blossom in two to five years." (12/2001) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "No notes given" (06...

1997 Long Meadow Ranch Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright red-ruby color. Cassis, black cherry, plum syrup, licorice, bitter chocolate and leather on the nose; reminded me of Saint-Julien. Concentrated and rather powerful, with slightly inky flavors of cassis and dark chocolate and a faint herbal streak. Dense and solidly built. Finishes with strong, tongue-dusting tannins." (06/2001)
Price: $59.99


92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Herbs and toast play off the standard fare of blackberries and plums, creating a good whole. It’s full, deep, and long- a thoroughbred. Another of those wines that everyone with a taste for California Cabernet should like. Charming and high in quality, if not necessarily ultracomplex." (11/2000) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Chewy, with chunky flavors of blackberries, dark chocolate and toasty oak. Concentrated, with brawny, broad-shouldered tannins that need a few years to unwind." (10/2000)

Price: $699.99

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the most beautiful wines in the Stature series is the impressive 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Stature. Sourced from vineyards such as Veeder Peak and Andy Beckstoffer's To-Kalon Vineyard, it offers up creme de cassis aromas intermixed with new saddle leather, vanillin, spice box, and minerals. Full-bodied, rich, and seamless, this voluptuously-textured, thick, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon can be drunk now or cellared for up to two decades.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard, is a beauty. The healthy ruby/purple color is followed by classic, unevolved but promising aromas of minerals, cedar, smoke, and black currants. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with admirable purity, a sweet, lush mid-palate, and ripe tannin in the finish. The top-notch 1997 is a classic, restrained. (RP)" (12/2000) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Expressive nose combines black raspberry, currant, black cherry, chocolate, toba...

93 points Vinous: "Moderately saturated medium red. Highly complex yet laid-back nose offers aromas of redcurrant, tobacco, underbrush and herbs, plus subtle spicy oak tones. Tighter and more firmly structured than the regular Oakville bottling, showing more red fruits than black and a complicating note of woodsmoke. This terroir-driven wine's firm acid/tannin spine extends the finish and keeps the wine fresh.

Soft in the mouth, but full-bodied, dense, and rich, it is an immensely impressive effort. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2020.

Dense and penetrating, with strong dark berry flavors that offer enticing subtle sweetness....

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Somewhat of a lightweight for Fonseca, but undeniably charming, this dark ruby/purple-colored wine offers a floral, exotic, flamboyant bouquet, a sweet, fleshy style, but not a great deal of weight or massiveness. Heady alcohol, sweet tannin, and a velvety texture make for a gorgeous finish. While I would have preferred to have seen more weight, structure, and intensity, this is an outstanding, albeit lighter than normal Fonseca.

95 points Wine Spectator: "Powerful and intense, this Spanish red is as ripe and rich as young Vintage Port, bursting with flavors of black cherries and blueberries, chocolate and coffee, supported by muscular yet round tannins. An impressive achievement in an age of blockbuster wines. Best after 2003. 500 cases made. (TM)" (06/2001) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The superb, opaque purple-colored 1997 Tirant exhibits sweet, concentrated, jammy fruit intertwined with notions of asphalt, pepper, liquid minerals, and subtle spicy wood.

1997 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac
Back In Stock!
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It boasts an opaque dense purple color in addition to a gorgeously sweet, expansive perfume of cedar wood, black currants, lead pencil, and minerals. What follows is a fat mid-palate, medium body, explosive fruit and richness, soft tannin, and a velvety texture. It is a beautiful, compelling Lafite-Rothschild that can be drunk young, yet promises to evolve for 15+ years. Although one of the most forward Lafites ever tasted, it is all the more captivating because of this characteristic. Don't miss it! (RP)" (04/20...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the La Romanée vertical at Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. The 1997 La Romanée Grand Cru, a Bouchard Père et Fils bottling that came from Louis-Michel's own cellar, was picked on September 22. It has one of the more attractive noses from this era, not dissimilar to the 1995, whereby the fruit seems less worked. There are lively red berry fruit, blood orange and Clementine, fine delineation and lift. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, ripe and slightly savory red fruit with a touch of gaminess ...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Warm and inviting, with a worn leather feel to the mix of dried anise, espresso, bittersweet cocoa, steeped fig and mulled currant notes, which move seamlessly together through the buckwheat-edged finish. There's plenty here to like now, but this has ample energy for additional development.--1997 Vintage Port retrospective (January 2017). Best from 2020 through 2035.

90 points Wine Spectator, "A very grapey '97, with loads of ripe fruit, firm tannins and a long, caressing finish. Subtle and long. Better than when tasted from barrel.Best after 2007." (02/2000)
Price: $49.99

90 points Robert Parker: "The dark ruby/plum-colored 1997 Pinot Noir Estate (1,330 cases) could pass for a top Beaune premier cru. With sweet, chocolatey, smoky, black cherry fruit intermixed with spicy cinnamon and earthy scents, this sexy, hedonistic Pinot Noir fruit bomb is undeniably delicious and compelling. Too good to resist, it will be better with another 6-12 months of bottle age, and last for 5-7 years. It tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol." (01/2000)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark, rich, smooth and chocolaty, with a pretty core of earthy currant, plum and blackberry accented by hints of mineral and cedar. Finishes with a gush of fruit and mocha. Tannins are firm and supple." (08/2001) K&L Notes: The Wild Boar Vineyard is located on their Cypress Ranch in the Pope Valley region of the Napa Valley. This 11 acre block was planted in 1988. The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and has firm tannins that support very concentrated fruit. This is a muscular wine with immediate appeal. It is rustically style...

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full red. Roasted redcurrant, plum and a whiff of animal fur on the very ripe nose. Lush and generous in the mouth, with impressive concentration. Finishes with very suave tannins for the vintage, a port-like suggestion of surmaturite and sweet oak. (ST)" (01/2000)
