Marc Colin et Fils Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Caillerets 1996
“Forty percent of the vines in Colin's Chassagne-Montrachet Les Caillerets parcel are 90 years old, with the balance evenly split among 40 and 15 year old vines. It reveals rock dust aromas and a bone dry, medium-bodied, and beguiling core of slate, stones, and gravel. Medium-bodied and rich, this vibrant wine has dazzling concentration, power, and extraction.” ~ 92, Pierre Rovani, The Wine Advocate

Kapcsándy Family Winery Estate Cuvée State Lane Vineyard 2008

“. . . Spectacular. In fact, I rated it the same as I did the 2007. A dense ruby/purple hue is followed by a gorgeous bouquet of espresso roast, chocolate, blackberries and black fruits. Full-bodied with extraordinary elegance as well as tremendous texture, intensity and length, this singular wine . . .” ~ 97, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Cayuse Syrah Cailloux Vineyard 2007
“Tar, hot stone and licorice notes weave through the rich, dark plum, mulberry and currant aromas and flavors. A complex, beautifully knit wine that lets its flavors sail through a long, compelling finish.” ~ 95, Harvey Steinman, Wine Spectator

Clos du Marquis 2005
“Fabulous aromas of crushed raspberry, blackberry, mineral and licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate. This is chewy yet silky, with a long, long finish. Balanced and powerful.” ~ 93, James Suckling, Wine Spectator

Château Lynch-Bages 2001
“Offers gorgeous aromas of currant, chocolate and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Very pretty.” ~ 90, WineSpectator.com

Marc Sorrel Crozes-Hermitage 2001
". . . O
ne of the finest examples he has made . . . . The 2001 Crozes-Hermitage exhibits sweet red currant and cherry fruit, good acidity and freshness, and considerable aromatic dimensions. It is a solidly built, deep example." - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 2000
“Fantastic aromas of blackberries, wild berries and minerals. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied and very tight, with big, silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Superb.” ~ 95, James Suckling, Wine Spectator

Clarendon Hills Shiraz Brookman Vineyard 1998
". . . Exhibits abundant aromas of roasted meats, blackberries, earth, and pepper as well as hints of charcoal and smoke. This [is a] full-bodied, rich Syrah . . ." ~ 93, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Château Ripeau 1998
“A dark ruby/plum color accompanies a sweet nose of prunes and black fruits.” ~ Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Château Pichon-Longueville au Baron 1990
“. . . 1990 is one of this estate’s two or three finest wines made in the last 40 years. Still inky/blue/purple-tinged to the rim, it reveals an extraordinary bouquet of charcoal, incense, creme de cassis, blue and black fruits, and a hint of licorice as well as an impressively long finish.” ~ 97, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Château Fleur de Gay 1986
“Rich and elegant, with layers of plum, cherry, anise and currant flavors. Toasty oak adds complexity and finesse, while the finish echoes fruit . . .” ~ 95, Wine Spectator
