2007 Rubicon Estate "Rubicon" Rutherford Bordeaux Blend

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "New oak stands out in toast and caramelized wood sweetness on this Cab, overshining to some degree the underlying blackberry, cherry and black currant fruit. It’s quite a fashionable, delectable young wine, and will probably be consumed too early by many people who buy it, but it’s really a cellar candidate. Made with a few drops of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, it should develop for 12–15 years. *Cellar Selection*" (12/2010) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Complex aromas of fresh leather, currant, spice, tobacco, black licor ...

Inky color, very concentrated black currant nose, full-bodied, with tons of tannin, velvety fruit flavors and a closed finish. Truly excellent. (JS, Web Only-1989)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My experience with this house is limited. One rarely sees this brand stateside. The 1983 is rich, full-bodied, well-colored, and complex."

2008 Neely "Hidden Block- Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (Previously $40)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The three Pinot Noirs I tasted under the Neely label all had advanced medium garnet colors as well as complex aromatics of pomegranate, apple skins, herbs and earth. My favorite is Neely’s 2008 Pinot Noir Hidden Block Spring Ridge Vineyard, which possesses sweeter fruit, more complexity and a Cote de Beaune-like red fruit character intermixed with spice and earth.

2002 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne Late Release (Direct from Roederer 2019)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Roederer's 2002 Cristal is a fabulous wine! Originally released in 2009, it was re-released in March this year—and was sold out in a very short time. The Cristal I tasted at Roederer in May 2018 was disgorged in 2010, after seven years sur lie. Its amazing richness and concentration makes it a forerunner of the 2015 and follows the 1999. Only two times—2002 and 2015—the fruit from all 42 plots reserved for Cristal was used for the Cristal. "I couldn't do any better blend than the one assembling all the 42 plots," ...

100 points Decanter: "As it opens in the glass, this is absolutely gorgeous. You can see why this was the period where people stopped and said, 'hang on, what's going on at Haut Bailly?' It's silky and a touch subdued, clearly a serious wine, with seductive, fleshy cassis, bilberry, hedgerow and bramble fruits alongside notes of leather, pencil lead and crushed stones, perfectly balanced by tantalisingly reticent tannins and acidity.

The summer of 2009 was very hot and dry, which got the harvest off to a reasonably early start. The blend was 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Lías Finas is 100% Viura fermented with a long maceration. Half of the wine was kept in concrete vats with the lees for eight months, and the rest was kept in 500-liter oak barrels. After that period, the concrete and barrel wines are swapped and kept for a further eight months, also with the lees.
