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 Domaine René Leclerc Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru "Combe Aux Moines"

91-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium to dark ruby-colored, the 1997 Gevrey-Chambertin Combe aux Moines reveals spiced corn and candied cherry aromas. 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 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Wine Spectator: "Superb, showing a wonderful sense of harmony. Complex and creamy, with telltale currant, anise and mocha scents. Excellent length. (JL, Web-2016)" 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, this wine seems more subdued than it did last year and might be going through a relatively closed stage. As it sat in the glass, it took on an almost Ducru-Beaucaillou or Leoville-Las Cases St.-Julien-like character, with notes of minerals, cedar wood, black currants, tobacco, and spice. This is a ...

As the wine sits in the glass, intense aromas of allspice also emerge. Huge, massive, chewy, and full-bodied, it is packed with fruit, glycerin, and character.

1997 Calera "Mills" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Sometimes a young Pinot is deceptive. This wine is young and silky, supple and fruity and has some sharp acidity, but it doesn’t overwhelm. It’s the kind of wine that doesn’t overshadow food. But it’s excellent Pinot. The depth of flavor and long finish suggest aging possibilities, but there’s no reason not to drink and enjoy it now."

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 ...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Proprietor Riccardo Cotarella's 1997 Montiano vino da tavola (100% Merlot, bottled unfined and unfiltered after spending 12 months in new French oak) is fabulous. 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.

1997 Havens "Reserve" Carneros Merlot

The 1997 Havens Reserve Merlot comes from four vineyards: Beau Terroir, Hyde, Truchard and Falstad. Blended with 10% Cabernet Franc, Mike Havens says "this wine has the potential to stand among our best wines of the 1990's. It's black fruits are complemented by the fine textures of coffee and cocoa powder. Although waiting for some bottle age to show the forward charm of our Napa Valley Merlot, this wine has the stuffing and completeness to offer new pleasure for many years to come."

1997 Domaine Coursodon "La Sensonne" St. Joseph

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The son of this family has taken over, and has totally revamped the winemaking style. There is now a 3-5 day cold maceration, indigenous yeasts are employed during fermentation, and new oak casks are used. 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. Yields were a meager 24 hectoliters per hectare. Terrific fruit intensity consisting of blackberries and cherries is followed by a wine with licorice, flint, and sm ...

1997 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard is unquestionably a remarkable wine. However, it will be very backward and potentially long-lived. It was only slightly evolved when I tasted it in September, displaying an opaque saturated, thick-looking purple color, and unevolved but promising notes of black raspberry liqueur intermixed with minerals, spice, and cherry fruit. Massive yet phenomenally rich, admirably pure, and representing the essence of this varietal, this wine requires 12-18 months of bottle age; it should ...

1997 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Decanter: "Shafer's 1997 Hillside Select is a magisterial wine, and my favourite example of this cuvée. Seriously endowed with fine-grained tannins, it needs some time in the decanter to open up, but when it does the aromatic display of cassis, blackberry, spring flowers and woodsmoke is magical. On the palate this wine is undeniably massive, but its savoury tannins confer a more classical character to the wine than one finds in, say, the super-ripe 2002 or 2007 vintages at this address. The 1997 Hillside is ageing very gracefully indeed, witho ...

1997 Arnaldo Caprai Montefalco Rosso Riserva

2 bicchieri for this Sangiovese blended with a bit of Merlot and Sagrantino. For those of you familiar with the muscular nature of Caprai's Sagrantino this wine is more elegant, sinewy and drinkable at a younger age. 1997 in Umbria is equally as good as it was in Tuscany and with this wine the incredible aromatic range of Sangiovese is really at its ripe peak. It is coupled with the fleshy nature of the vintage into a fabulous wine capable of aging a decade plus or, due to the fleshy nature of the vintage, drinkable now.
