Top Pick!
The wonderful Dornoch Distillery sits hidden on the main drag in the tiny town of Dornoch.

Founded by brother Simon and Phil, the distillery is completely contained in one tiny stone shed. While the brothers might not have the resources and capital of many of Scotland's new distilleries, they do have an incredible vision and the unwaivering support of the Single Malt loving community.

1998 Glenburgie 21 Year Old "Old Particular" Single Refill Hogshead Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The home of Ballantine's - the world's second largest whisky seller. Nearly every precious drop of Glenburgie stays 'in the familly.' We were duly excited when we were offered the chance to bottle our own cask - at 21 years old no less. On the northern edge of Speyside, Glenburgie has a long history with multiple ownership interests like so many famous Scottish distilleries. Built in 1829 the distillery changed hands a number of times before settling into the Hiram Walker portfolio in 1936 and forevermore being associated with the Ballantine's brand. The...

Easily one of the most picturesque properties in the Gers, Chateau Vacquie has extreme potential thanks to its special terroir and passionate proprietor. There's absolutely nothing typical about Chateau Vacquie or its owner Bruno Compagnon. While the area is not particularly renowned for great brandy, this special domaine has been identified by experts as being of exceptional quality. Most notably Aubert De Villaine, a friend of Bruno's who's personally examined the domaine and declared it be one of the finest in the southwest. Bruno was a successful bus...

The Middle East's finest wine, and one of the world's great reds. The grapes are handpicked as the sun rises across the Bekaa valley and are then swiftly transferred to the cellar in Ghazir where fermentation takes place followed by maceration lasting 2 to 4 weeks. During the first year the wine is racked into Bordeaux type barrels made from Nevers oak and where it matures from 12 to 15 months. According to a 1998 by Michael Broadbent: Tasting of single varietals. In small oak barrels since August (1999). Very distinctive, individual. In the cellars at C...

1998 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Back In Stock!
97 points Wine Spectator: "Displays gorgeous, savage aromas and flavors, with crushed juniper berry, hot tar, sage leaf, roasted chestnut and grilled beef notes that scorch across the palate. Still rugged on the finish, though the color at the rim and the intensity and range of the aromas show that this is evolving. (JM)" (09/2007) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape from the Michel family was firing on all cylinders for this retrospective, and while I’ve had bottles stateside that seem tired, this was beautiful on al...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Pavie Decesse is medium to deep garnet-brick in color and explodes with fabulous plum pudding, prunes, blackberry preserves and blueberry pie notes with hints of smoked meats, garrigue, dusty soil, cast iron pan and star anise with dried roses and cinnamon stick wafts. Full-bodied, concentrated and packed with rich exotic spice and black fruit preserves layers, it has loads of mineral and meat sparks and a very, very long, layered finish. Incredible! For cellaring potential, I give it 20+ more years. (LP...

92 points Wine Spectator: "Big, ripe, rich and chocolaty, this mostly Cabernet-Merlot blend delivers loads of polished currant, plum and black cherry flavors and pretty toasty oak notes, before finishing with broad, supple tannins and excellent length." (10/2000)

1998 Merryvale "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Spectator: "Supple and harmonious, with polished coffee, herb, currant and bell pepper notes that are focused and complex. (JL)" (09/2001)
Price: $39.99


92 points Vinous: "Good full red with a trace of amber. Very ripe Pinot aromas of redcurrant, spices, tobacco and cedar, plus hints of yellow fruits (peach, quince, pineapple). Plush, supple and fine-grained, with savory fruit, graphite and mineral flavors conveying noteworthy vinosity. Quite broad for the vintage, finishing with substantial dusty, building tannins supported by strong fruit. Another vintage that struck me as a bit claret-like. This wine does not show quite the quality of oak as recent vintages at Faiveley, and its tannins could be sweete...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Extraordinarily rich, deep, complex and concentrated, yet remarkably elegant and graceful, this deft red blend reveals layers of exotic spice, black cherry, currant, coffee, tobacco and cedary notes ending in a long, complex aftertaste. *Cellar Selection, Ranked #3 of Top 100 Wines of 2001* (JL)" (02/2001) Jancis Robinson: "Deep crimson with rusting rim. Delia Viader pointed out that especially strict selection was needed in this difficult-to-ripen, over-criticised year. Aromatic, mineral-laden – you can almost smell the ston...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Cote Rotie La Landonne is a perfect wine ... at least for my palate. Its saturated black/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary nose of smoke, incense, tapenade, creosote, blackberry, and currant aromas. It is densely packed with blackberry, truffle, chocolate, and leather-like flavors. The wine possesses high tannin, but perfect harmony, impeccable balance, and gorgeous integration of acidity, alcohol, and tannin. It is a tour de force in winemaking. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025. (RP)" (04/...


90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Bacio Divino (a 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Sangiovese, and 11% Petit Verdot blend) is a full-bodied, textured, layered effort exhibiting an opaque purple color, and lush, delicious, plum, cherry, black currant, and sweet new oak notes. The wine is deep, chewy, intense, and elegant. It is on a fast evolutionary track. (RP)" (06/2002) Wine Spectator: "A touch earthy, with a complex core of ripe plum and cherry-laced flavors. This blend of Cabernet, Sangiovese and Petite Sirah fills in the flavor gaps ni...


93 points Wine Spectator: "A wine bursting with berry and green tobacco character, plus lots of currant, raisin and spice aromas. Full-bodied, with full, velvety tannins and a long aftertaste of tobacco and earth. Mouthpuckering. Best DC in years. Best after 2006." (01/2001)


1998 Domaine Lucien Barrot Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Back In Stock!
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The complex, earth, plum, herb, cherry, and currant-scented 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape is a complete, rich, layered wine. It reveals considerable structure at present (it was just bottled), with moderate levels of tannin, a spicy, animal-like characteristic, and flavors of black cherry, kirsch liqueur, and incense. (RP)" (10/2000) Wine Spectator: "Offers silky, lightly mulled cherry and red currant fruit, laced gently with singed sandalwood and bergamot notes, with an easy finish. (Web-2013) "

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This small vineyard changed ownership during the last year. The 1998 was produced by well-known winemaker, Heidi Barrett. The 1998, made from a 3-acre, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard planted with the "Grace" clone of Cabernet, is an undeniable success for the vintage. Aged 20 months in wood, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a pure, sweet nose of black currants, spice, licorice, and tobacco. Soft and full-bodied, with supple tannin, outstanding concentration, and excellent balance, it will drink beaut...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A classic Chateauneuf du Pape with sweet, complex aromatics of kirsch and cherries, this full-bodied, sumptuous wine possesses superb depth and body, as well as an aging potential of 15-20 years." (12/2001) 90 points Wine Spectator: "If it's modern-style fresh fruit and toasted oak you want, forget this one. Good ol' traditions are at work, with mineral, wet earth, blood orange, firm tannins and terroir. Aromas are a bit washed out, but the wine tightens its grip around the palate like a boa constrictor around ...

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Aromas of currant, berry skin and bitter chocolate, plus a whiff of high-toned oak. Juicy, fresh, slightly tart flavors of small red berries. Lacks flesh but offers good sweetness and density for this difficult vintage. Finish shows some raw oak tones. (ST)" (05/2001)
Price: $179.99

Wine Spectator: "Well-crafted red. Aromas of blackberries, raspberries and licorice. Full- to medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, silky finish." (10/2001) K&L Notes: A blend of Merlot and Sangiovese from the third vintage of the Marchesi de' Frescobaldi family's partnership with Robert Mondavi.
Price: $89.99

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Trilogy Proprietary Red Wine reveals the vintage's shortcomings. It is a very good, even excellent wine, but the vintage's short, cool growing season has given the wine more austerity than normal. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Malbec, it offers plenty of spicy new oak, mineral, licorice, and damp, foresty aromas and flavors. (RP)" (12/2000) Wine Spectator: "A very complete '98 that's supple in texture, with creamy vanilla, black cherry and wild berry flavors that are pl...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe hay, vanilla, and apricot mark the nose; deep orange flavors with cinnamon spice notes and a very smooth mouthfeel are the already promising attributes of this infant. All the right elements are there, and in good balance. " (02/2001) Wine Spectator: "The earthy, waxy flavors slowly give way to the sweet, rich, earthy core of fig and butterscotch flavors. Young and unevolved, it shows promise. (JL)" (12/2001) K&L Notes: Dolce is only produced in those years where the right climatic conditions occur to allow the develo...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The first vintage, the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Mon Aieul is still drinking gorgeously today. Made from roughly 80% old-vine Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault and aged in the oldest foudre in the cellar at that time, it sports a fully mature, amber/ruby color to go with classic notes of olive tapenade, tobacco leaf, cured meats, figs, sweet kirsch and assorted darker fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, sweetly fruited, voluptuous and layered, it's clearly at peak and in need of consuming, but will hold g...

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Roasted red fruits and milk chocolate on the nose. Lush and dense in the mouth, with leather, coffee, dark chocolate and garrigue flavors, a lightly animal syrah character, and a strong oak component. Finishes fat and lush, with strong roasted wood tones. Quite Languedoc in style. (ST)" (01/2001)

92 points Wine & Spirits: "(No tasting note given.)" (04/2002) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This opaque purple-colored, muscular, full-bodied, classically made St.-Julien displays impressive concentration, chewy, highly-extracted flavors of black fruits, iron, earth, and spicy wood, and a powerful mouth-feel. A pure, uncompromising, traditionally-styled wine, it is to be admired for its authenticity, class, and quality. (RP)" (04/2001) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby. Very pure aromas of black cherry an...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard was bottled earlier than usual as this vintage is not as massive or concentrated as its predecessors. To my palate, the 1998 is good, although I am not convinced it will be long lived. There are 2,300 cases of this 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit-Verdot, and 3% Cabernet Franc blend. It is supple and elegant, with a complex, evolved bouquet of smoke, black currants, spice box, and cedar. In the mouth, the wine is forward with sweet tannin, gorgeously rich, concentrated ...

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A big, rich wine with huge amounts of fruit oozing out of the glass. Great concentration and intensity, with licorice flavors from the Mourvèdre, finishing with chewy tannins. A great year for this wine, which should age well for 15 to 20 years." (12/2001) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Very youthful, with a juicy blast of red plum and fig fruit flavors on a racy frame, this also has plenty of spice, tar, plum cake and mineral in reserve, as the finish shows more structure and slowly darkens with time in the glass. Only just sta...

This wine is showing well now, with ripe black cherry, blackberry, and cassis notes at the fore, all followed by hints of coffee and herb for added interest. Smooth and supple on the palate, the ensemble is framed in rich, silky tannins and finishes long and lush. The Girard is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

Lush and dense in the mouth, with leather, coffee, dark chocolate and garrigue flavors, a lightly animal syrah character, and a strong oak component. Finishes fat and lush, with strong roasted wood tones. Quite Languedoc in style. (ST)" (01/2001)



92 points Wine Spectator: "Rippling with sweet apricot, honey and citrus aromas and flavors that revolve around a core of laserlike acidity, providing the backbone for this intense, sweet white to develop. Long finish. (BS)" (02/2000) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Powerful phenolics here: aromas of black tea, dried pit fruits and citrus zest. Quite sweet, with pleasant hints of fruit skin bitterness. Airy and not at all heavy in the mouth for all of its sweetness, which nearly overwhelms 11.5 acidity. Far less intriguingly flavored than ...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Pungent aromas of ripe fruit and white truffles, turning to blueberry. Full and very ripe, with velvety tannins and a long, lightly raisiny finish. Open it and see. -JS (Web-2009)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: " A wine of beautiful purity, symmetry, and grace, this complex, dark purple-colored 1998 reveals abundant quantities of black fruits infused with notions of new oak and graphite, medium to full body, sweet tannin, admirable elegance, and beautiful richness.

This is a meaty, oaky Cab, with firm, tongue-lashing tannins, plenty of red berry/cassis fruit and a power-packed profile from top to bottom. It’s delicious and strong, with coffee, bitter chocolate and licorice lining the extended finish. (PG)" (10/2001) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A ripe, round and graceful Washington Cabernet. A pretty wine that's generous with its plum and black currant flavors, swirling with ...

Drink now. (JL, Web-2009) " Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Elegant blackberry, licorice, and mineral notes jump from the glass of this medium-weight, stylish, exceptionally pure offering. It reveals impressive levels of black fruits as well as nicely-integrated acidity, tannin, and wood. With decanting, this 1998 can be drunk now, but it pro...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is a tiny (210 cases) production of the dark plum/purple-colored 1998 Pinot Noir Octagon Vineyard. It exhibits a floral/rose petal note to its sweet black cherry, dried herb, earthy, complex aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, long, and sumptuous, it is a broad, expansively-flavored Pinot Noir...
