2005 Bodegas Casa Juan Señor de Lesmos Gran Reserva Rioja

92 points James Suckling: "This has a beautiful depth of fruit with spice and dark fruits. Hints of parsley and cilantro. Full and super silky with a long and beautiful finish." (04/2012) K&L Notes: 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.

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 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe

Full and very layered with chewy polished tannins and a long, long finish. Just starting to open. Changes all the time. Still needs a year or two but gorgeous to drink already."

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 from Cheval Blanc is a quintessentially elegant, beautiful, deep bluish/ruby-colored wine from St.-Emilion, with raspberry, blueberry, and floral notes, impressive density, great precision, freshness and purity. Full-bodied, but extremely light on its feet, I don’t mean to gush, but it is super-intense, rich and just so meticulously crafted!

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

93 points Wine & Spirits: "The generous umami flavors of this wine bring to mind roast pigeon stuffed with mushrooms—a meaty, rich, succulent flavor that carries a touch of earthy sweetness. 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 Laphroaig 12 Year Old "Alexander Murray" Cask Strength Small Batch Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

Alexander Murray has been making some waves recently. They've used their buying power through large volume purchases for many of the country's largest chain retailers to secure stocks of some very special and rare distilleries. While many of my suppliers are unable to offer me cask strength Laphroaig of any age for less than £100+ a bottle, Alexander Murray is putting small batch cask strength malt from Islay's most flavorful distiller into the bottle for a bargin. After a little poking and proding, we were able to secure a special price and offer this e ...

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 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. When we see casks pop up from the period after the reopening in 2001, they're almost always privately owned by people who were smart enough to grab a cask when they were sale for £700 a pop.

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 ...

This famous vineyard at the northern end of Napa Valley, which in this era was owned by Bart and Daphne Araujo (today owned by François Pinault, the proprietor of Château Latour), can certainly make the argument that it’s one of the first growths of Napa Valley.

2005 Domaine Michel Sarrazin Givry "Sous la Roche" Vieilles Vignes

From North Berkeley Imports: "The finest wines from the Côte Chalonnaise are known for their effortless beauty, with delicate aromas, fruit-driven flavors and light, silky textures. Burgundy from Domaine Michel Sarrazin et Fils both exemplifies this elegant style and sets an even higher standard for the region — each cru is unquestionably the finest in its class, yet still offers exceptional value.
