2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused." (10/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous. There's something ethereal about its tannins, like a chocolate truffle melting in the...

Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is more deeply pitched still with a classic Nuits nose of earth, game and underbrush adding nuance to the dark berry fruit aromas that complement the rich, round and equally earthy flavors that possess good acid/fruit/tannin balance and solid length fashioned in a forward and relatively accessible package." (04/2007)
Price: $59.99

96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "The magnificently pure and airy essence of notably ripe dark pinot fruit, cassis and menthol remains reserved and cool with its exceptionally rich, classy, sweet and vibrant mineral-driven and large-scaled flavors that are shaped by powerful if buried tannins. While magnificently long, this stunning Ducster is completely shut down at present and it would be a vinous crime to open one at this very early point in its development as the '05 is built for the very long haul, indeed 20 years may be too soon. In my view, th...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Pichon-Longueville Baron is another concentrated, full-bodied 2005 that’s starting to drink well. Cassis, black cherries, tobacco leaf, cedar and classic Pauillac lead-pencil characteristics all emerge from this ripe, sexy, surprisingly rounded effort that has a stacked mid-palate and sweet, polished tannin. It’s impressive today but is going to cruise for another two to three decades." (12/2017) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft. Now bottled and shippe...


98 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, full deep red. Pungently mineral aromas of raspberry, dried flowers, flint, smoke, mocha and underbrush. A monumental wine of ungodly intensity and extract without any impression of excess weight. The dusty, tactile extract fills the mouth with spicy, minerally, high-toned perfume, and the wine ascends to an even higher level on the peacock's tail of a finish, which boasts great energy and persistence. I drank this bottle over a period of four nights (one of us has to show some restraint), an...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and concentrated, with bold aromas of plum, currant and mocha leading to complex, layered blackberry, licorice and spice flavors that finish with a flourish of ripe, minerally tannins. (JL)" (11/2007) 91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Wonderfully rich and well-concentrated aromas of sweet oak and optimally ripened cherries make for a stellar start here, and the wine more than lives up to its promise with powerful, keenly proportioned flavors brimming with precise varietal fruit. Big, but beautifully balanced with a long, in...

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! This is another fabulous wine and a perfect expression for this vintage. It is difficult to forget the gorgeous blueberry and raspberry fruit, full body, sweet tann...

100 points Decanter: "This stunning wine is still extremely young, with an amazingly expressive nose with tea leaf hints. The aromatics keep building and building in the glass, and the elegance and persistency shine through. This was a drought year, unusual because it was almost perfect from beginning to end with not a drop of rain from May to October. Temperatures were not hot like 2003, of course, so the ripening was slow and complete, with relatively small yields and relatively high alcohol. This is full of energy and the flavours just keep on going, ...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Proprietary Red Wine is a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, all from the Oak Knoll sector of Napa. Its deep ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by a sweet perfume of mocha, caramelized black cherries and currants, and hints of chocolate as well as espresso. With terrific fruit, medium to full body, supple tannin, and well-integrated acidity and alcohol, it should be drunk over the next 8-10 years. (RP)" (12/2007) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of plum and roasted sage lead to intense, ...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot (note that rarely is any Merlot utilized at the historic Napanook Estate in Yountville). The alcohol, by California standards, is a relatively modest 14.1%. Blending the best of French savoir faire with the brilliant fruit purity and ripeness of Napa Valley, Moueix has turned in another tour de force that seems far superior today than it did when it was first released. This is one of the vintage's greatest wines. Dense purple and youthful...

97 points Wine Spectator: "Exhibits blackberry, mineral, currant and dark chocolate. Full and velvety, with lots of fruit and chewy tannins. Long and caressing, with incredibly sweet fruit and tannins on the finish. Goes on for minutes. A thoroughly gorgeous wine. *Ranked #18, Top 100 Wines of 2008, Highly Recommended* (JS)" (03/2008) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful wine, once again, from this property that has been on a superb qualitative roll for several decades. Dense ruby/purple with notes of graphite, background oak, youthful...

2005 Tertre Roteboeuf, St-Emilion
Top Pick!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational effort, Tertre Roteboeuf’s 2005, along with the 2000, is one of the most profound wines made by Francois Mitjavile. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a stunning perfume of sweet black currants, jammy cherries, licorice, and spice. Full-bodied and opulent with high, but remarkably sweet, velvety tannins as well as a stunning texture and a finish that lasts nearly a minute, this prodigious St.-Emilion should be drinkable in 3-4 years, and last for two decades or more. Kudos to the proprietor. (...

93-96 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: " This is also exceptionally classy and refined with spicy and fresh black and blue berry fruit aromas that complement to perfection the rich, powerful and massive flavors that manage to retain a wonderful sense of detail on the almost sternly structured finish yet the sap buffers any austerity. This is a big Musigny but for all the size and weight, the balance is impeccable. Potentially the best wine in the range if only barely. *Don't Miss!* " (04/2007) 92-95 points John Gilman: "For several vintages I have fo...

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium garnet-brick colored, the 2005 Ancient Way Vineyard Summer's Vineyard gives up stewed tea, tobacco and tilled earth scents over a core of plum preserves, mincemeat pie, cherry cordial and chocolate box plus touches of truffles and smoky bacon. Full-bodied, rich and spicy in the mouth, it has compelling earthy accents and a good long finish. (LPB)" (12/2018) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Deeply pitched dark fruit preserve aromas show a superripe, decadent character, w...

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This excellent effort is just now beginning to drink beautifully well with its expressive and highly complex nose of cool and fresh green apple aromas that are trimmed by floral and brioche aromas. There is excellent size, weight and punch to the big, rich and sleekly muscled flavors that are notably ripe yet there is a firm acid backbone that maintains outstanding focus on the almost admirably intense mineral-infused finish that goes on and on. For my taste this has just arrived at the front end of its peak drinkabi...

2005 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
96 points Decanter: "A long, cool growing season, with harvest from the end of September to the end of October, delivered fantastic flavour development. More Bordeaux-like than most in the tasting, it was highly aromatic, with a lush cassis, violet and graphite nose, and intense flavours of dark plum cherry fruit, cocoa, and notes of espresso. It’s expressive right now, yet the powerful tannins say it’s got years to go. One for collectors. Drinking Window 2018 - 2035 (EM)" (06/2018) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is still ri...

2005 Cos d'Estournel, St-Estèphe
Top Pick!
99 points James Suckling: "The purity of fruit in this is fascinating with plums, currants and other dark fruits. Then there is another layer of spices and chocolate. So much cassis. 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." (10/2015) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cos d'Estournel is blended of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet colored, it is still a little closed...


96 points James Suckling: "A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused. " (11/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous. There's something ethereal about its tannins, like a chocolate truffle melting in th...


96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky bluish/purple in color, Pavie Macquin produced a prodigious effort from St.-Emilion in 2005. Its crushed, chalky rock minerality, massive body, and high tannin make for a wine to forget for another decade. Super-loaded, concentrated and powerful, this wine should turn out great, but patience will be required. The blackberry and cassis fruit are there in abundance, but so is a massive structure. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035. 96+ points. (RP)" (06/2015) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Bright and fresh, with ra...

2005 Martinelli "Lolita Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Back In Stock!
95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light red. Very expressive, precise aromas of spicy raspberry, redcurrant and wild strawberry. Fleshy and deep in red berry flavor, with gentle acid lift and an expansive, almost liqueur-like intensity on the finish. This really gains power with air but retains freshness and precision. Whatever tannins are here are completely absorbed by the lush fruit." (05/2007) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new cuvee, the 2005 Pinot Noir Lolita Ranch, comes from the newer Dijon clones, 115 and 777....


93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark ruby in color, with lots of concentrated fruit, dark chocolate and hints of game. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and wild mushroom character. Long, velvety, smoky and decadent. Best after 2014. (JS)" (03/2008) Jancis Robinson: "Dark crimson. Toasty nose and sweet, relatively supple fruit with a hint of treacly leather and some succulence. 16.5/20" (02/2009) K&L Notes: From an exceptional vintage! Pouget is located in the heart of Margaux and the vineyards are planted in the gravelly soils of the region to 60% Caberne...

2005 Robert Craig Howell Mountain Napa Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
92 points and a 'Cellar Selection' designation from Wine Enthusiast: "Craig's Howell Mountain Cab typically is powerful and ripe, with bigtime tannins that require aging. The 2005 is such a wine. Made with a drop of Merlot, it shows black cherry and cassis fruit accented with lots of toasty new oak. But it's really young, stinging on the palate with astringency. Should negotiate the next 10 years with ease." (12/08) From Robert Parker: "The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain exhibits scents of red and blackberry fruit along ...

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the world’s great wines and profound expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon, is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select. This wine spends more than 30 months in 100% new oak, and, year in year out, has been one of the most singular and profound examples of Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. It seems Shafer began to ratchet up performance during the 1990s, and the first decade of the 21st century has provided a treasure trove of either perfect or nearly perfect wines, including the 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "His 2005 Syrah McDowell Valley (from vines planted in both 1911 and 1945) exhibits similar intensity, with a saturated ruby/purple color and notes of bacon fat, blueberry, and blackberry as well as a hint of licorice. It is medium to full-bodied, soft, with silky tannins and good freshness. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. " (12/2007) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. An expressive, spicy bouquet comprises strawberry, redcurrant, cinnamon and nutmeg, plus hints of tobacco, graph...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Pontet Canet is a bruiser that’s still not anywhere near primetime. Blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, and saddle leather all emerge from this concentrated, powerful, structured 2005 that has an incredible amount of fruit, yet no shortage of ripe tannin, extract, and length. It needs another 4-5 years (or more) to hit maturity, but it’s an incredible wine that’s going to reward patience. 97+" (02/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London, the 2005 Château Pontet-...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The more serious grand vin twin, the 2005 d’Issan, has a stunning nose of spring flowers, blackcurrant and blue/black fruits galore, and an impressively opaque dark plum/purple color. With a rich, concentrated and pure mouthfeel, wonderfully sweet tannin, full-bodied density and richness, but elegance in abundance, this is a stunner, and one of the great Margaux of the vintage. Drink it now and over the next 20 years. (RP)" (06/2015) 95 points James Suckling: "Lots of sweet tea leaf with mineral and currant cha...

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With a gorgeous nose of super-concentrated black cherry/kirsch liqueur, this wine offers notes of licorice, crushed rock and flowers followed by a full-bodied, powerful, rich finish with a boatload of tannin. This is a long-distance runner and a sensational effort in the vintage. Drink it over the next 25-30 years. 97+ (RP)" (06/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Beautiful crushed berry, spice and raspberry tart character follows through to a full body, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. A pretty w...

2005 Tor Kenward "Mast-Cimarossa" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering up notes of blueberries, black raspberries, and currants in a soft, Pomerol-like style, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Mast-Cimarossa possesses sweet tannins, adequate acidity, and a plush texture as well as finish. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. (RP)" (12/2007) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: " Good deep red. High-toned aromas of cherry liqueur, licorice and herbs, lifted by a piquant note of orange peel. Supple but juicy, with an herbal pungency and bright acids giving the mid...

95 points James Suckling: "This shows a great purity of fruit; firm and direct notes of raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries that open to intense notes of fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins. This wine is tight and long -- you know this is good immediately. " (07/2012) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Haut Bailly is rapidly turning into a glorious wine. You instantly fall in love with the purity on the nose, luscious red cherries, wild strawberry and blueberry. This is still youthful and beautifully defined. The pa...

Connoisseurs Guide: "There is no question but that age is beginning to show here, yet if no longer an especially fruity wine, this version is shot through with exotic spice, hints of dried herbs and undisguised oak, and it delivers considerable complexity nonetheless." (02/2011)
Price: $69.99

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This small jewel of a property owned by the Garcin family has been making great wine for a number of years, with the only problem being its very limited availability. Their beautifully deep 2005 has a dark purple color and displays charcoal, blackberry and cassis fruit, with some smoky barbecue notes in the background. This full-bodied, opulent wine is still youthful at age 10, and promises to continue to evolve for another 15-20 years. Pure and stunning, this is a great wine of the vintage. (RP) 96+" (06/2015) ...

2005 Lafite-Rothschild, Pauillac (1.5L)
Back In Stock!
100 points James Suckling: "An incredible nose, so subtle with red fruits, mint, minerals, and all sorts of flowers give way to Cohiba cigar tobacco. The palate has such freshness and density, with perfectly polished tannins. Slightly leathery, like a wonderful Hermes bag. What a wine, please leave this for another ten years. " (02/2011) 99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Initially dense, almost black enough to be attacked with a knife. But then it becomes apparent that this is a beautifully integrated, balanced wine, bringing together power, with the hallmar...

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "In its brief history, Hewitt has already made a name for itself as a producer of big, massively extracted Cabernets and, while this most recent version adheres to the norms of muscle and mass, it does so with a little more polish than shown in the past. Very deep, very ripe and very full-bodied, it is bursting with wonderfully concentrated, curranty fruit and is further lifted by loads of sweet oak. Its sense of polish makes it remarkably approachable even now, but the wise choice is cellaring, and we would counsel five or ...

2005 Martinelli "Moonshine Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Back In Stock!
91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Flamboyant dark berry aromas, with intense floral and blood orange accents given depth by a suggestion of cured tobacco. Plush mulberry and boysenberry flavors are deep, round and sweet, but there's ample acidity to give the wine energy and focus. Bright red berry tones come up on the finish, which boasts striking precision and length. This is awfully sexy right now." (05/2007) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Closed and dominated by allspice, clove, and herbaceous black cherry notes is ...

Hall combines fruit from a variety of Napa Valley estate vineyards to create their Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2005 vintage of this wine really showcases the vintage, which was very long, exemplified by the broad tannins and forward fruit from start to finish. Cassis, blackberry, leather and spice intertwine with ripe cherry and vanilla notes that are powerful straight through. This is a big wine that needs some decanting now and one that will mature nicely in your cellar over the next decade.
Price: $34.99

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I was also able to taste a bottle of the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Dyer Vineyard and it’s drinking beautifully today. Notes of mature red and black fruits, new leather, tobacco leaf, and cedar all emerge from this nicely balanced, medium to full-bodied Cabernet that has plenty of fruit and texture as well as another decade or longevity." (01/2019)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Green olive, herb, sage, floral and dusty berry flavors are compact, concentrated and full-bodied, supported by firm, dry tannins. Tightly wound, the flavors are mouthwatering and well-structured. (JL)" (02/2009)


93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, saturated ruby-red. Deep aromas of black fruits, violet, tobacco, licorice, minerals, nuts and earth. Lush, rich and sweet, with an intriguing smoky character and lovely lightness for a wine with so much breadth and volume. Unusually powerful and deep for this bottling; complex and distinctive. In a rather Old World style, with complex soil tones currently dominating primary fruitiness. Finishes broad and dry, with very lush, fine tannins. A superb vintage for this estate. Winemaker Brookman ...
Price: $294.99

99 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Le Tertre Roteboeuf is just about off the charts and shows how good this vintage is for Bordeaux. Still inky ruby/purple-colored with a huge nose of blackcurrants, chocolate, black cherries, and hints of scorched earth, it hits the palate with a huge, full-bodied, concentrated, yet impeccably balanced profile. This is an incredible wine that’s just now at the early stages of maturity and will keep for another two decades or more." (12/2017) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational effort, Tertre Roteboeuf...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Treva’s Vineyard shows its mountain structure through full-bodied, powerful, black currant flavors intermixed with some loamy soil notes, cedar, and spice box. Pure, dense, rich, and backward, give it another 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades. " (12/2007)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: " *Cellar Selection* A big step up from Jaboulet’s La Petite Chapelle, this is on a par with some of Jaboulet’s past efforts. It’s richly concentrated, yet nuanced, with notes of blood and mineral added to ripe cassis fruit and accented by hints of vanilla and spice. The tannins form an almost creamy texture in the mouth, and the finish lingers a good long time. Drink 2012–2025. " (09/2007) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very juicy, with nice drive to the black currant and boysenberry fruit, which is pushed by dark plum sauce, ...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Les Pavots (3,600 cases of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot) is a sensational wine, with a style that suggests a hypothetical blend of a great St.-Emilion and Pomerol. Chocolatey cassis notes intermixed with incense, licorice, and a hint of black olive are present in this wine. When it hits the palate, it comes across as very Pomerol-like, with lushness, full body, and opulence. The tannins are sweet, the pH high, and the wine gorgeously full, pure, dense,...


92 points James Suckling: "Wonderful balance of fruit with currant and chocolate character. Full body with integrated tannins and a clean finish. Polished and refined." (07/2013) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This attractive deep ruby/plum/purple wine is supple, with notes of loamy soil, earth, underbrush and black and red currants. Very fragrant and medium-bodied, with relatively sweet tannin, this wine should continue to drink well for another 10-15+ years. (RP)" (06/2015)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Cru is a gorgeous wine, a seductive style of Cabernet with outstanding ripeness, purity, soft tannins, and an expansive texture. With loads of black currant and tobacco leaf notes intermixed with a subtle touch of wood, this is a beauty to drink over the next 10-12 years. (RP)" (12/2007) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Well-crafted, tight and structured, with focused currant, mineral, sage and dried berry fruit that's intense and concentrated, with a long, persistent finish. (JL)" (02/2008)
