2015 Pétrus, Pomerol

100 points Decanter: "There is so much going on with Petrus in 2015 that you should just pull up a chair and relax, don't expect to be going anywhere soon. Aromatic persistency keeps reaching in, pulling you further alongside. There is a soft quality to the tannins that allows the black fruit to be both juicy and sweet. High alcohol is balanced by freshness - a pH of 3.5 is relatively rare on these sticky clay soils - unleashing waves of flavour, including bergamot, smoky tea, black olives and rich cherry. The persistency is crazy - I had to get my notes ...

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Cut from the same cloth with the intensity turned all the way up, but with no loss of purity or elegance, the heavenly 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is a worthy follow up to the otherworldly 2015. Awesome notes of crème de cassis, gamey blueberries, sappy underbrush/mountain scrub brush, flowery incense and crushed rocks all literally soar from the glass of this full-bodied beauty.

2014 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Shows a lingering perfume of singed alder at the very end. (JM)" (08/2019) K&L Notes: Silver Oak Cellars is a Californian wine producer known for its wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon.

2004 Krug Brut Champagne

97 points James Suckling: "This is an extremely fresh edition and remains in a restrained mode with an intense serve of Chardonnay's lemon citrus dominating the nose alongside lime zest, bright florals, grassy elements, fresh dough, white stones and very subtle background spice. The palate has a svelte and elegant shape. Smoother than the 2002, it shares the same quality of precision but not the raging power of that vintage. The poise is unquestionable, the wine very reserved, with plenty of lemon-infused citrus flavors, hints of fresh cashew and a lot o ...

2014 Luciano Sandrone "Le Vigne" Barolo

96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Barolo Le Vigne once again shows the wisdom of blending fruit from different sites. If there is a vintage where blending has the potential to be the difference-maker, 2014 is it. So it is hardly surprising to find the 2014 Le Vigne in such great shape. The red cherry jam, mint, cedar and floral notes are all finely sketched. Medium in body and classy, the 2014 is beautifully textured and inviting from start to finish.

Overture reflects the winemaker's artistry by showcasing the talent of blending five traditional Bordeaux grape varieties and capturing terroir characteristics of the same variety grown in different soils. Overture's additional blending aspect - that of marrying multiple vintages - yields a softer, rounder expression of their estate that may be enjoyed upon release.

2010 Haut-Brion, Pessac-Léognan

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 2010 Haut-Brion, it does not have the power of Latour’s 2010 or the intense lead pencil shavings and chocolaty component of Lafite-Rothschild, but it is extraordinary, perfect wine. It has a slightly lower pH than the 2009 (3.7 versus the 2009's 3.8), and even higher alcohol than the 2009 (14.6%). The wine is ethereal. From its dense purple color to its incredibly subtle but striking aromatics that build incrementally, offering up a spectacular smorgasbord of aromas ranging from charcoal and camphor t ...

1990 Pavie, St-Emilion

92 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and fresh. Just what it should be. Deep ruby with red hue. Loads of chocolate, vanilla, tobacco and ripe fruit. Full bodied with lots of velvety tannins and a long finish. (JS)" (08/2000) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Perhaps the last great Pavie before Gerard Perse bought the estate in 1997. The 1990 Pavie sports a deep core with deep tawny rim and sports a very “classic” Pavie bouquet that is muted at first, but unfurls gracefully with intense cedar aromas deriving from the Cabernet Sauvignon. Underneath th ...

2015 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac

100 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a great vintage from Lafite. The profile is rich in feel, with a seriously firm tannic structure. Solid, complex and with great authority, this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wine, is impressively dense in dark-fruit tones. It will age for many years. Drink from 2027, although that would almost be too soon. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (04/2018) 99 points James Suckling: "Lead and graphite are complemented by notes of blueberries and blackberries. Blackcurrants, too. Full-bodied and focused with very round and polished tan ...

2009 Les Forts de Latour, Pauillac 2018 Ex-Chateau Release

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2009 had a very hot, dry summer with a little rain in mid to late September. The wines are rich, opulent and generously fruited, approachable when young, though they have the substance to age beautifully. This is no exception. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 Les Forts de Latour is very spicy on the nose, strutting star anise, fenugreek and cumin seed notions over a core of crème de cassis, violets, plum preserves and blueberry compote with a waft of camphor. The palate is full-bodied, rich, opulent and wonde ...

2016 Viña Almaviva "Almaviva" Bordeaux Blend Puente Alto

97 points James Suckling: "A very fine and elegant Almaviva with fresh fruit and herb character. Medium-to-full body, tight and focused with very fine, linear tannins and a chocolate and light cedar undertone to the whole thing. Savory, too. Smoked meat and succulent. It's tight but opens with air. Classicism here. " (12/2018) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 harvest was complicated by rain in late April, which made them hurry up and finish two weeks earlier than normal. The year was also cooler, and the 2016 Almaviva, a blend of 66% ...
