Daniel-Etienne Defaix Domaine du Vieux Château Chablis Les Lys 2005, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chablis, Burgundy

"Dramatic aromas of blanched almonds, beeswax, honey and preserved lemon introduce the 2005 Chablis 1er Cru Les Lys, a full-bodied, textural wine that's rich, concentrated and structured, with a tight-knit core, tangy acids and a stony finish. Like Defaix's other 2005s, it's very much in its prime and will be well worth seeking out when it reaches the marketplace." 93 Points Wine Advocate

Bond Pluribus 2005, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Petit Verdot from Spring Mountain District, California

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Pluribus is from a relatively high-elevation vineyard on the steep slopes of Spring Mountain and planted in the white Tufa volcanic bedrock of that area. This is the most northern vineyard of the Bond Estates, and this wine was just incredible. By far, the biggest, most backward and massive of all the 2005s, this wine behaved as if it were three or four years old, rather than ten. Dense purple, it offers notes of blueberry liqueur, St.-Estèphe-like earth, licorice and a gravelly note with incredible depth, lots of blackberries, and a finish that goes on for 45+ seconds. This is incredibly youthful and dominated by the blue and black fruits that are so much a part of the Spring Mountain AVA. This wine needs another 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for 30-40+ years and turn out to be a fabulous classic from Bond Estate. All of these wines are made in relatively limited quantities, and primarily sold via the winery mailing list." 98+ Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Bond St. Eden 2005, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, California

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Eden is from an 11-acre vineyard on the foothills north of the Oakville crossroad that has the classic red, rocky soil of this area, essentially in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains that define the eastern edges of Napa Valley. This wine, which shows notes of new saddle leather, Christmas fruitcake and spice, is broad and savory, with a classic full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity and sensational flavors of wild forest mixed with blackberry and cassis fruit. This blend can be drunk now, or cellared for at least another two decades." 97 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon 2005, 1.5L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma Valley, California

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon has put on significant weight since last year. This seems to be a common occurrence in 2005, which do have a more European structural underpinning, but have definitely increased their intensity of fruit as they have aged in cask – always a positive sign. This wine has an inky bluish/purple color to the rim, a sweet nose of white flowers intermixed with black currants, a deep full-bodied mouthfeel, superb purity, plenty of tannin, but it is sweet, integrated, and the wine long (over 40 seconds), with stunning perfume. . ." 95 Points Robert M.
