96 points Wine Spectator: "Fabulous aromas of crushed raspberries, plums and blackberries. Mind-blowing nose. Full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a long caressing finish. Hard not to drink now, but leave it alone. (JS, Web Only-2007)" 95 points Vinous: "Saturated ruby-red. Dark berries, violet, licorice and a note of torrefaction. Explosive, pure flavors are almost too big for the mouth. Finishes with big, sweet tannins and expanding, exhilarating flavors of pruneaux and crystallized dark berries. Perfectly integrated oak. A great Latour. (ST) ...

Wine Spectator: "An enjoyable wine, without pretension. Berry character, and dried-herb undertone. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a pleasant, fruity aftertaste. (JS)" (01/1999)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 1996 Dom Perignon, which has largely disappeared from the marketplace, may be the finest young example of DP I have ever tasted. Notes of crushed rocks, honeysuckle, lemon oil, orange marmalade, and white pear provide a stunning aromatic display as well as palate impression. Great acidity and huge flavor intensity backed up by vibrant acidity make this an exquisite Champagne. It should drink well for 20-25 years, possibly longer. Readers should remember that the 1971 Dom Perignon Rose is still drink...

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.

Robert Parker said of this wine: "This is another immensely impressive wine emanating from the Pisoni Vineyard in the Santa Lucia highlands. Given the high quality of all the Pisoni Pinot Noirs made by many different producers (Ojai, Peter Michael, Siduri, etc.), it appears I need to visit this vineyard on a future trip. There is no doubting the serious fruit coming out of this source. The color is a dark ruby/purple, and the nose offers up loamy soil scents intermixed with gobs of black cherry/plum-like fruit notes. The wine displays medium to full body...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Clark Claudon's 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dark purple color, followed by a classic, Bordeaux-like nose of cassis, lead pencil, and smoky new oak. A wine of considerable complexity and elegance, with outstanding purity, richness, and nicely integrated wood and tannin, this is a classic, backward yet promising, symmetrical Cabernet that can be drunk early in life, or cellared for 15+ years. Impressive! (RP)" (08/1999)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This light-colored wine is among the finest Nuits to have graced my palate. An amazingly elegant, floral, and blueberry, cherry, stone, chocolate, as well as rose-filled nose warns the palate of the impending pleasures to follow. This full-bodied, velvety-textured, and sublimely proportioned wine offers layer upon layer of candied blackberries, cherries, assorted dried fruits, as well as a seductively supple and lively personality. Even though it comes across as luscious and forward, it has a firm structure that ...

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." (10/97) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Creamy coconut, dried orange an...

100 points Wine & Spirits: "It's hard to imagine how a wine of this power can sustain perfect balance. What is now a more nonchalant intensity in the aroma was, in fact, too much to handle when we tasted this last year, as if the wine had no time for mere humans with their limited sense receptors. If you stop to taste ripe pear, ginger spice, apple blossom and butterscotch the wine leaves you lost in random flavor descriptors as it soars off into a vinous glow that lasts for minutes. This may well be the greatest vintage wine of Henri Krug's career (unle...

97 points James Halliday: "Full red-purple; concentrated, ripe, cassis and blackberry fruit leaps from the glass, with oak present but trailing behind. The palate is as rich, ripe, succulent and concentrated as the bouquet suggests, redolent with cassis, and long, lingering tannins." (07/2011) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deeply colored, this 707 Cabernet offers notes of ripe blackcurrant, warm black cherries and mulberries with a fragrant undercurrent of sandalwood. The palate is voluptuously fruited with firm, grainy tannins, crisp acid ...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Maiden was performing even better this year. The dark saturated plum/purple color is followed by aromas of prunes, coffee, black fruits, and espresso beans. With an opulent personality, low acidity and a plush texture, it is a sexy, well-endowed wine. (RP)" (01/2000)
Price: $189.99

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...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the sleepers of the 1996 vintage, Lafon-Rochet has turned out an atypically powerful, rich, and concentrated wine bursting with black currant fruit. The opaque purple color gives way to a medium to full-bodied, tannic, backward wine with terrific purity, a sweet, concentrated mid-palate, and a long, blockbuster finish. This wine remains one of the finest values from the luxury-priced 1996 vintage, and is well-worth purchasing by readers who are willing to invest 5-6 years of patience; it should keep for tw...

Mr. Cazenave has become one of the most renowned producers of Armagnac on the market today. His beautiful estate in the rolling hills outside of Mauléon d'Armagnac has old vine Folle Blanche planted to sable fauve and sandy clay. Not a native of Gascogne, he's managed a large medical laboratory in Nice and began farming in Armagnac after serving in Algeria. An honorary gascognian, he made a commitment to producing the finest Armagnac in the early 1990s and sparing no expense to create the finest eau-de-vie possible. Here are the results of that passion. ...

92 points and a Highly Recommended designation from the Wine Spectator: "This red blend from Washington displays remarkable density of flavor on a sleek frame. A smooth and generous wine, its black raspberry, cherry, currant and coffee flavors wrap themselves seductively in a blanket of fine-grained tannins. Lasts and lasts on the finish. From the partnership between Chateau Ste. Michelle and Italy's Marchesi Antinori. Contains 85 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 15 percent Merlot. Best after 2001." (06/99)
Price: $59.99

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." (06/1999)

1996 Cakebread Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
Wine Spectator: "Lots of upfront ripeness and fruitiness, with an earthy clay edge to the ripe cherry and blackberry. Mildly tannic, this is not as lean as young Cakebread Cabernets usually are. (JL)" (11/1999)
Price: $69.99


94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon (from 10-year old vines) may only have a "modest" 13.9% alcohol, yet it is a sensational wine. Its opaque saturated purple color is followed by copious amounts of cassis, earth, and spice aromas. There is superb concentration, huge body, outstanding purity, and a multi-dimensional, thick, viscous, concentrated finish. It is a blockbuster Cabernet Sauvignon that will be drinkable young because of low acidity, but will evolve for two decades. (RP)" (04/1999)

A sentimental favorite because it marks one of the last vintages that Jean Paul Valette was involved with before he sold the estate. Mr. Valette was one of the friendliest and most hospitable proprietors in Bordeaux, and will be missed dearly.

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 2-bottle lot of 1996 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (94RP, 93DC, 92ST, 90VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of the finest Opus Ones to date, offering a dark ruby/purple color, as well as a striking, intense bouquet of sweet licorice intermixed with blackberries, cassis, plums, and saddle leather. This seamless, full-bodied wine is more velvety-textured, opulent, and succulent than past vintages. The mid-palate is expansive and chewy. The long finish is filled with glycerin, ripe fruit, and sweet tannin. Drink this impressive, user-friendly yet richly concentrated effort over the next 15 years. (RP)" (01/2000)
Starting Bid: $575.00

Bid on this magnum of 1996 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (94RP, 94WS, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The saturated purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard offers an attractive nose of black fruits intermixed with toast, minerals, subtle tar, and wood smoke. Full-bodied, with impressive purity, a multi-layered mid-palate and finish, it is an expressive, pure, powerful, and large-boned wine. (RP)" (12/1999)
Starting Bid: $300.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1996 Hitching Post Pinot Noir Tasting Lot, including 2-bottles of 1996 Hitching Post "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir and 2-bottles of 1996 Hitching Post "Highliner" Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir.
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this magnum of 1996 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (1.5L) (100RP, 96ST, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Unquestionably this renowned estate's best wine since the 1986 and 1982...This massive wine may be the biggest, largest-scaled Lafite I have ever tasted. It will require many years to come around...The wine exhibits a thick-looking, ruby/purple color, and a knock-out nose of lead pencil, minerals, flowers, and black currant scents. Extremely powerful and full-bodied, with remarkable complexity for such a young wine, this huge Lafite is oozing with extract and richness, yet has managed to preserve its quintessentially elegant personality. This wine is even richer than it was prior to bottle. It should unquestionably last for 40-50 years." (04/1999)
Starting Bid: $1,450.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Abadia Retuerta "Cuvée Palomar" Sardon del Duero (93ST, 92RP). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated dark ruby. Pungent, stony aromas of cassis, black raspberry, toast and flowers. A step up in intensity. As dense and lush as the regular bottling, but even firmer and more sharply delineated owing to the wine's strong minerality. Still, this offers truly enticing sweetness in the mouth. Strong oak tones on the very long finish." (09/1998)
Starting Bid: $38.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos St-Jacques" (94JG, (92-94RP), 93VN, 92ST, 91BH). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This dark-colored wine is produced from vines that were planted in 1920 and 1921. Profound aromas of red cherries, blackberries covered in chocolate, morel and porcini mushrooms, road tar, and toasty oak lead to an awesome explosion of densely packed fruit on the palate. Layers of juicy and plump cherries, minerals, stones, and fresh herbs are intertwined with vanilla-imbued oak in this expressive and feminine beauty. It possesses extraordinary depth, concentration, and structure. This full-bodied, velvety-textured, refined, and focused wine also possesses an extremely long and delineated finish. (PR)" (08/1998)

Starting Bid: $95.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The powerhouse, opaque purple/blue-colored 1996 Les Pavots is a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc. The nose offers up blackberry, licorice, cassis, and pain grille aromas. The superb extract, well-defined personality, and smoky, licorice, Asian spice, and blackberry flavors provide a thrilling tasting experience. It was bottled with neither fining nor filtration. There are approximately 2,800 cases of this fabulous effort. (RP)" (01/2000)
Starting Bid: $115.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe (98DC, 94RP, 94ST, 93VN). 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)
Starting Bid: $330.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1996 Domaine Arlaud Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru "Les Chezeaux". According to Robert Parker: "This medium-to-dark colored wine offers blackberry and stone aromas as well as an enticing, velvety, medium-bodied, and truly delicious core of gorgeously ripe blueberries and minerals. A longer finish and more complexity would have earned this lovely wine an outstanding score. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. Pure unadulterated pleasure. Liquid hedonism. Great drinking! Great mouth-feel! Sexy. Total seduction. Why even cellar? Must buy." These are some of the words that adorned the margins of my notebook after my tasting of Herve Arlaud's 1996s." (08/98)
Starting Bid: $100.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (93RP, 92WS, 90VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-brick colored, the 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate features notions of cassis, warm blackberries and eucalypt with touches of mocha, smoked meats and sandalwood plus a waft of pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with rich, savory flavors, with a chewy frame and just enough vivacity, finishing long and meaty. (LPB)" (02/2018)
Starting Bid: $117.00

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 1996 Havens "Reserve" Carneros Merlot. This wine comes from some pretty famous vineyards… Truchard, Hyde, and Beau Terroir (in Carneros) and Paradigm Vineyard (Oakville). Black fruit character really comes through. Great concentration and richness. A pleasure to drink now, but certainly has plenty of aging potential.
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1996 Rene Leclerc Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Combe Aux Moines" ((90-93RP), (88-91ST)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Exhibiting a dark color, this wine has black raspberries, dark cherries, and freshly ground white pepper in its brooding and austere nose. This sweet, rich, ample, full-bodied, and silk-textured wine has superb breadth, and power. Red cherries, candied apples, loads of Asian spices, and ground black pepper can be found in its flavor profile and long finish. (PR)" (08/1998)
Starting Bid: $205.00

Bid on this bottle of 1996 Dal Forno Romano Amarone della Valpolicella (99RP, 97JS, 95DC, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dal Forno's virtually perfect 1996 is undoubtedly the finest Amarone I have ever tasted. Its inky black/purple color is accompanied by extraordinarily pure, graphite-infused, blackberry, plum, mineral, licorice, and espresso flavors. Despite its monumental intensity and richness, this wine is not heavy, somehow managing to conceal its 17.5% alcohol! As compelling an Italian wine as I have ever tasted, it should prove to be unbelievably long-lived. (RP)" (10/2001)
