Guiraud 2005, 0.75L
Sauvignon Blanc / Sémillon from Sauternes, Bordeaux

"Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish." Wine Spectator 97 Points

Montrose 2005, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Petit Verdot from St. Estephe, Bordeaux

"The Château Montrose 2005 has a quite brilliant bouquet with intense blackberry, cedar and tobacco scents that unfold in compelling fashion – but don’t give too much away. The palate is full-bodied, a Montrose of “architecture” thanks to its vaulted tannin, perfect acidity and immense precision on the long finish. Everything here feel natural and effortless and yet it is clearly a 50+ year old wine. This is a fabulous Montrose, one built like a Bentley." 96 Points Wine Advocate

Nenin 2005, 0.75L
Merlot / Cabernet Franc from Pomerol, Bordeaux

“A complete and sexy wine with very polished and refined tannins yet there’s an energy and posture that gives the wine such intrigue. Buy it.” James Suckling 96 Points

“Very grapey on the nose, with mineral, tarragon and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a light vanilla, berry and milk chocolate aftertaste. Subtle and balanced. The best Nenin in years.” Wine Spectator 93 Points

“A very smooth, rich wine, with a slight touch of pepper from the alcohol. The tannins are huge but submerged by ripe fruit. There's almost Napa-like ripeness, but also delicious acidity.” Wine Enthusiast 90-92 Points

“Very good, yet clear and clean blackcurrant fruit. Nice touch of iron on the palate. Plump, rounded, fleshy and succulent, but it avoids heaviness thanks to the lively acidity. Ripe tannins give structure and there’s a distinct earthiness that is actually quite appealing.” Decanter 91 Points

“Pure, intense black fruit. Rich aromas with a hint of vanilla and violets. Succulent and moreish - tannins are rich and ripe and upright but very come-hither. Delicious.” Jancis Robinson 17.5 Points

Sine Qua Non Grenache Atlantis Fe 203 2B 2005, 0.75L
Grenache from Sta. Rita Hills, California

". . .it has put on weight and seems to be developing more complexity. California’s cooler year seems to have given all the top 2005s loads of perfume and distinctive aromatics. Oodles of kirsch, licorice, charcoal and floral notes along with some blacker fruit characteristics jump from the glass of this dense bluish/purple wine. Medium to full-bodied, yet extraordinarily elegant for a Grenache, with beautiful purity in its hints of white chocolate and forest floor and its admirably textured, long finish, this wine is still young but approachable thanks to its aromatics fireworks. . ." 97 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.
