2005 York Creek Estate "Horseshoe Block" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker's Notes: "At York Creek we have a small block of Cabernet Sauvignon, planted entirely to the legendary "La Questra" clone of Cabernet. This clone was brought to California by Emmet Rixford back in the 1880s directly from Chateau Margaux in Bordeaux. It is one of the most highly sought after "heritage" clones of Cabernet Sauvignon in the state. We call this block the "Horseshoe" because of its shape. For several years, I have made a separate fermentation, and because of its unique character I decided to bottle a little as a separate wine. It's 1 ...

2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Gran Reserva Rioja

2005 Angélus, St-Emilion

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Angelus is as good as it gets, and despite having 2-3 decades of prime drinking ahead of it, is as profound a drinking experience as money can buy even today. Offering off the hook notes of blackcurrants, smoked herbs, blackberries, toasted spice, espresso and scorched earth, this beauty is unctuous and opulent on the palate, with incredible depth, yet never seems heavy, cumbersome or over the top. It has more depth and concentration than the 1990 (and I suspect any vintage in the 1990s or 2000s) and will keep for anothe ...

2005 Balblair 13 Year Old "K&L Exclusive" Cask No. 224 Cask Strength Single Cask Highland Single Malt Whisky 750ml (ships as 1.5L)

The Balblair distillery is still one of the truly unsung heroes of the Highlands. Official record sets the founding in 1790, but illicit distillation was ubiquitous in these far-flung parts of the Highlands long before that. The little distillery just a stone's throw from Glenmorangie, offers some of the prettiest malt in Scotland. The water source, Allt Dearg, has slight peaty character which although not overtly detectable in the whisky serves to add complexity to the already layered malt coming from these small stills in Edderton. When the brand appro ...

2005 Bodegas Puelles Gran Reserva Rioja

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Gran Reserva can also do with some decanting in advance as it has some reductive aromas when first poured after opening. After that it has some notes of hung game, spices, beef blood, iron, tea leaves and peat showing mostly as tertiary aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, with a fine thread of acidity going through its spine that is laced with fine tannins. It is quite easy to drink and quite a good price for a Gran Reserva.

2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Gran Reserva Rioja (1.5L)

The meaty character seems to emanate out of the tannins, which fill out the wine’s supple texture and last, along with the rose-scented fruit. A savory red, to serve with roast game."

2005 Bruichladdich Peated (Port Charlotte) 12 Year Old "Alexander Murray" Cask Strength Small Batch Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

The exciting new whiskies coming from Alexander Murray are proof that if you work hard enough, great single malt whisky deals are still out there. We can't buy cask strength Bruichladdich for any price on the open market right now and if you do find something it will almost definitely from the old regime and wildly expensive.
