2015 Pauillac de Latour, Pauillac
Review Date: 09-29-2020
We just received the 2015 Pauillac in stock and it shows surprisingly well for a wine that generally that needs some age to come around. Made primarily from young vines, this wine shows tons of red fruits in its core, hints of menthol, spice and cedar. The wine shows terrific focus and purity. The finish is long and the tannins are evident but ripe and integrated. A great wine to buy and enjoy over the next 5-10 years.

2018 Kalinda Central Coast Chardonnay
Review Date: 05-13-2020
The fruit for this Chardonnay is sourced primary from the Paragon Vineyard, which is located about 5 miles south of the town of San Luis Obispo, in the heart of the Edna Valley. Lots of classic cool climate Chardonnay fruit is followed by a round, creamy texture and long crisp finish. Good acidity and balance make this wine the perfect summer sipper!

2018 Smith Haut Lafitte, Pessac-Léognan
Review Date: 06-03-2019
Sweet fruit up front, very tannic and masculine, compact and closed in the mouth but still shows a fleshy mid-palate texture. This should round out once bottled and turn out to be an excellent effort! 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot

2015 Beau-Séjour Bécot, St-Emilion
Review Date: 05-10-2019
Aromatic in the nose, the fruit is nearly exotic. This is a richly textured wine that is dense and concentrated but still shows finesse and balance. The firm tannins are not overpowering but still this is a structured wine that should age gracefully over the next several decades.

2018 Saint-Pierre, St-Julien 6-pack in OWC

We were all very impressed with this wine this past April when tasting it out of barrel. Dark color, extracted and deep, intense, masculine and firm, but with layers of chewy, ripe fruit. Hints of graphite and mineral. Very long on the finish. Excellent Saint Pierre!

This is one of the most approachable Duhart Milon’s we have ever tasted out of barrel.

Hints of violets and licorice in the nose and mouth. Quite floral and pretty upfront with a fair amount of tannin and structure in the back. Should come together in time very nicely! 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc

2018 Capbern, St-Estèphe
Review Date: 05-06-2019

Very pretty aromas; soft, silky middle fruit, ripe tannins, hints of mint and sweet herbs. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc

2018 de Sales, Pomerol
Review Date: 05-03-2019
A blend of 69% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon is an unusually low percentage of Merlot for the property. This is one of the better younger de Sales we have tasted. The wine is fresh and pure, with an elegant mid-palate and silky tannins that linger on the finish. Quite round and fleshy in the mouth, with a wonderful purity. Excellent value from the Right Bank!
