1997 York Creek "Meritage" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend (1.5L)

This elegant, balanced claret from an outstanding vintage has been perfectly aged in York Creek's cellars. The nose offers compelling scents of cherry liquor, cedar and damp earth. The body of the wine is seamless with flavors of black cherry, dark plum and currant all deftly balanced. This is very fresh and alive with an overall sense of finesse and proportion, and a subtle but persistent finish showing very fine tannins. Cathy Corison fashioned this for those who favor harmony and balance over sheer power. 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 14% ...

1997 Hector Macbeth (Glenfiddich) 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

There's just no way to describe the feeling of coming across a splendid old cask of Wardhead (trade name for teaspooned Glenfiddich) like this one. You'd expect with the incredible value that these casks offer we'd see more of this type of whisky on the market, but I think suppliers are scared to work with something labelled as a blended malt whisky even when they know it's actually only blended on paper. This magical cask bottled as "Hector Macbeth" was actually distilled at the famous Glenfiddich distillery in Spring of 1997. It was filled into a used ...

On the palate, this waxy, super-rich, powerful, and dense wine is replete with black berries, cherries, as well as licorice-like tones. Well-crafted and admirably long. (PR)" (10/1999)

1997 Macduff 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The lovely Macduff Distillery - sold locally under the Glen Deveron label - is one of those tragic cases of great malt lost behind the blends. The owners don't spend much time making a fuss of the little distillery, which was built in 1958. Not much of the whisky is sold as malt and mostly it's marketed in France. The distillery located in Banffshire was a crucial element in the popular William Lawson Blend, but recently the owners have revitalized the Glen Deveron brand with a posh new look and some expensive age stated offerings. Despite the great pack ...

1997 L'Encantada 20 Year Old "Bellair #36" Bas-Armagnac (750ml) (Previously $100)

Independent bottler L'Encantada understands what Armagnac lovers want because that's exactly what they are. This group of Armagnac-loving friends realized that some of the region's small estates were throwing away legendary eau-de-vie to blends made by the big négociants. They offered those estates a premium to retain the stocks for bottling as single casks at full strength. Many of these estates had never bottled Armagnac nor had any interested in marketing their precious eau-de-vie. Our friends at L'Encantada realized that the soul of Armagnac exists i ...

1997 Benrinnes 20 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

For people who have been following us for a while, you'll remember this special whisky. We've purchased several of these and the 1995 version that's now completely gone. It was always neck and neck with the wonderful 1995 Imperials, which is now 3 times the old price in the warehouse.

On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and open-knit, with largely melted tannins and a generous personality, which is all tied together by the bright thread of acidity that's such a signature of this site.

1997 Couly Dutheil "Clos de l'Olive" Chinon

Working in wine retail, we are often asked about what wines to age and how long one should age them. Truth be told, it depends. Chinon, for example, produces both wines that are intended to be drunk young and fresh and wines that are built to age for ten or more years. In step with the French notion of terroir, Cabernet Franc from Chinon heavily reflects the soil in which the vines are grown. The soil of Chinon can be divided into three main types: alluvial silt terraces composed of gravel and sand that sit along the banks of the Vienne River; Turonian c ...

1997 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The result is a great vintage in both quality and quantity. The fruit came from five separate vineyards, Bancroft Ranch and Tre Colline on Howell Mountain, Chabot and St. Helena Home Vineyard, and for the first time, a small portion came from the Marston Ranch on Spring Mountain.

Prodigious when it hits the palate with a full-bodied expansiveness, there is not a hard edge to be found in the 1997, only velvety tannins, compelling depth and fruit intensity, and stunning purity. It is a perfect expression of Napa viticulture and wine that should continue to age effortlessly for two decades or more.

It displays multiple layers that build in the mouth, exploding at the back of the palate. From its opaque purple color, the huge sweet notes of chocolate, smoke, black fruits, and toast satiate the olfactory senses, yet please the mind's intellectual yearnings.

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)

1997 Calon Segur, St. Estephe (1.5L)

The first Chateau we visited on our tasting trip in early April. The wine has a nice nose of vanilla and strawberry, up front bright fruit on the palate. A delicate, elegant, wine that was obviously crafted with finesse rather than power as the goal. Soft round tannins will help make this wine a early delicious drinker. 85-89 points from the Wine Spectator. Robert Parker also reviewed the wine... 'the wine possesses complex aromas of earth, black fruits, minerals, and spice, medium body, and modest length.'

The excellent 1997 St.-Joseph La Sensonne (from a hillside vineyard behind the village of Mauves) is a more modern-styled wine than was produced in the past.
