2005 Lascombes, Margaux Top Pick!
2005 Lascombes, Margaux

94 points Wine & Spirits: "A joyous Lascombes, this is the first vintage to hit stride since the US investment firm Colony Capital took over in 2001. It's a meaty wine draped in fragrant tannin, built for long aging. It's also an exuberant wine, in both the bright, red currant-scented fruit and the bristle of the tannin. A playfully complex flavor lasts for minutes, the wine still youthful and fresh four days after it was opened. Margaux chic." (03/2008) 93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This well-filled, impeccably balanced wine starts with aromas of che ...Read More »

2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Gran Reserva Rioja Top Pick!
2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Gran Reserva Rioja

Finally, the great 2005 Gran Reserva from our favorite Rioja winery has arrived! As is the case with so many other great spots in Spain, Bodega Casa Juan is located opposite the village church, in the beautiful walled pueblo of Laguardia. The winery is a converted flour mill, featuring concrete tanks for fermenting and blending the wine, and barrels that are used for up to seven years. These are traditional Riojas in elaboration and spirit, though the site specificity of their Laguardia and Villabuena vineyards confers a fruit character all its own to th ...Read More »

2005 Highland Park 12 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Refill Sherry Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2005 Highland Park 12 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Refill Sherry Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

After years of begging and pleading, Highland Park has finally agreed to sell us a single cask. These barrels have been popping up around the country over the last year and are already becoming collectable. We were very excited to get full proof HP in ex-sherry hoggies and although it's a refill it's still dark and full of dense oloroso character. The powerful orkney distillate does wonders up against sherry and our barrel is no exception. It's unfortunate that this one will probably end up in collections across the world when it's so delicious, so if yo ...Read More »

2005 Dom Pérignon Brut Rosé Champagne

Medium to full body, with ultra-fine tannins that feel like fine silk. The finish goes on for minutes. It floats across the palate. The winemaker says the closet vintage to this is the 1990, but I think this is better." (12/2016) 95 points Vinous: "The 2005 Dom Pérignon Rosé is intriguing, complex and multi-faceted.

Blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, and saddle leather all emerge from this concentrated, powerful, structured 2005 that has an incredible amount of fruit, yet no shortage of ripe tannin, extract, and length.

2005 Ausone, St-Emilion Back In Stock!
2005 Ausone, St-Emilion

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Ausone is a perfect wine of the vintage. It displays crushed rock, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity and richness, and perfect harmony among all of its component parts (acidity, tannin, wood, alcohol and extract). Still youthful, but oh, so promising, this wine should be set aside for another decade and drunk over the following 50-75 years. (RP)" (06/2015) 100 points Wine Spectator: "I love the tobacco, berry, cigar box, toasty oak, ripe fruit and ...Read More »

2005 Promise Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine, aged 100% in new Taransaud and Darnajou cooperage for 30 months (talk about an expensive endeavor!), is the product of wine producer Steve McPherson. This is an impressive wine and a big boy (14.9% alcohol) that displays beautifully pure blueberry and blackberry fruit, incense and subtle background graphite. It is full-bodied, opulent, extremely fresh, and shockingly youthful, but again, that has been a common theme running through all of these 2005s. In fact, it tastes more like a 3- to 4-year-old Nap ...Read More »

2005 Trotanoy, Pomerol

96 points John Gilman: "Ironically, as Trotanoy is one of my personal favorites in all of Bordeaux, I had never had the opportunity to cross paths with the 2005 Château Trotanoy prior to the Wine Workshop tasting. This is destined to be a great vintage of Trot, which I have little doubt will end up superior to the more muscular 2010 that seems to have caught the imagination of so many commentators. The combination of ripeness and outstanding acidity that is found in the very best 2005s is very rare, and these qualities are certainly on display in this ve ...Read More »

2005 Lanson "Gold Label" Vintage Brut Champagne

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "With 49% Chardonnay and 51% Pinot Noir from grand cru vineyards, this well-balanced wine is just coming into its best years. Crisp and dry, following the Lanson style of no malolactic fermentation, the wine is full of white fruits, citrus and hints of toast, based around a tangy, mineral texture. Drink now and until 2025. *Editors' Choice* (RV)" (12/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: " Smoke and marzipan notes are layered with baked currant and lemon curd flavors in this lively Champagne, with a creamy mousse. Balanced and acce ...Read More »

2005 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Haut-Bailly, is dense purple with loads of graphite, earth, spice, blackberry and blueberry fruit, beautiful balance, medium to full body, and stunning purity, texture and length. Still incredibly young at age 10, this wine is set for 30 or more years of longevity. This is a great, great Haut-Bailly that will one day probably rival 2009 and 2010. 96+ points. Drink 2014 - 2044 . (RP)" (06/2015) 95 points James Suckling: "This shows a great purity of fruit; firm and direct notes of raspberries, strawberr ...Read More »

2005 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon T6" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (scuffed labels)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon T6 is 100% Clone 6, came in at 14.7% alcohol, and was aged in 100% new Darnajou barrels. It reveals a different character, with notes of charcoal and espresso roast, white chocolate, new saddle leather and a meaty, dense, full-bodied mouthfeel. This is spectacular and terrific stuff. After the RBS, this is probably the most evolved of these five cuvées, although I kept going back to the CCS, which has a hauntingly perfect bouquet. (RP)" (06/2015) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Powerful, ...Read More »

2005 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2005 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the world’s great wines and profound expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon, is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select. This wine spends more than 30 months in 100% new oak, and, year in year out, has been one of the most singular and profound examples of Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. It seems Shafer began to ratchet up performance during the 1990s, and the first decade of the 21st century has provided a treasure trove of either perfect or nearly perfect wines, including the 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007 ...Read More »
