Clos du Marquis 2006, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Petit Verdot from St. Julien, Bordeaux

“Offers violet and blackberry on the nose, with tar. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a fruity, minerally aftertaste. Long and silky. Very serious for the vintage.” Wine Spectator 92 Points

“A beautifully perfumed, dark-colored wine, bursting with black plums and violet perfumes. It is, on the surface, delicious, but taste beneath that and it becomes complex and dark, with immense but velvet tannins, suggesting considerable potential.” Wine Enthusiast 91 Points

“Bright, full ruby-red. Ripe aromas of blackberry, kirsch, cedar and sexy oak. Rich, broad and pliant, with chewy, vibrant flavors of black fruits and licorice. This boasts excellent texture and depth for a second wine. Finishes with substantial dusty, fine tannins and excellent length. A serious and full vintage for Clos du Marquis, but less forbidding now that it's in bottle than a sample I tried from barrel last spring.” Vinous 90 Points

Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc 2006, 0.75L
Sauvignon Blanc / Sauvignon Vert from Pessac Leognan, Bordeaux

"I have been enjoying this numerous times this year and it underlines how SHL is clearly in the upper echelon of dry white wine producers in Bordeaux. The wine now shows gorgeous guava and mango character with hints of pineapple and a creamy undertone. It has layers of fruit that change all the time on the palate. The phenolic texture reminds you of a soft red wine but the look and flavors are uniquely Bordeaux. It's all sauvignon blanc and sauvignon vert. Drink now or enjoy in the future." 95 Points James Suckling

David Léclapart L'Apôtre Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut 2006, 0.75L
Chadonnay from Trépail, Champagne

"David Léclapart’s NV (2006) Blanc de Blancs L’Apôtre is a real stunner . . . . the 2006 L’Apôtre is marvelous. Rich, ample and burnished in the glass, the 2006 is built on serious structure, with subtle notes of pastry, pear, dried flowers and spice that add resonance. What a great way to start lunch." 94 Points Antonio Galloni

Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2006, 0.75L
Pinot Noir / Chardonnay from Champagne, Champagne

"Deep pinot-driven presence is the first and lasting impression. Power with control. Superfine bead, bread and spiced biscuits, candied ripe red fruits and a sense of tight-knit complexity. Some grapefruit, lemon pith & gently flinty notes too - impressive nose. In the mouth it is rich, powerful, mouth-filling and flavorsome with a core of the same biscuity red fruit flavor, savory nutty notes and a wrap of assertive, persistent acidity that holds rich powerful flavor deep and focused whilst maintaining a polished, gently creamy texture. Long chalky bread and biscuit finish. A superb pinot-driven vintage." 97 Points James Suckling

"The prestige cuvée from this producer, this has richness and a dense texture that brings out the ripe fruits. From a good, if not great, vintage, it is beautifully balanced, still young to taste and likely to age well." 93 Points WIne Enthusiast

Philipponnat Clos de Goisses Brut 2006, 0.75L
Pinot Noir / Chardonnay from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Champagne

“The 2006 Clos des Goisses is stellar, but it is also going to need quite a bit of time to come into its own. Powerful and ample in the best of the Goisses style, the 2006 hits the palate with serious intensity. Orchard fruits, lemon oil, white flowers and almonds are some of the many notes that open up in the glass, but, as is often the case with young Goisses, it is the wine's gravitas that is front and center. Even with all of its overtness, though, the 2006 retains striking, crystalline purity. I imagine the 2006 will reward Champagne lovers with many decades of truly exceptional drinking. The only thing the 2006 needs is time. The question is: How much?” Vinous 96 Points

“A statuesque Champagne, with a firm, well-sculpted frame swathed in a fine and creamy mousse, featuring notes of yellow plum, pastry, candied ginger and spring blossom. Delivers a long, chalky finish. Disgorged October 2015.” Wine Spectator 93 Points

“Firm straw colour. Really distinctive nose – rather minerally and intense. Soars out of the glass. The bead is just a little coarse and the wine positively screams for attention. Although the dosage is so low, the wine actually tastes quite rich, although it finishes very firmly and dry. A really personality-laden wine. A whole percentage point more potent than most. Kerpow!” Jancis Robinson 18 Points

Abreu Proprietary Red Cappella 2006, 0.75L
Cabernet Blends from St. Helena, California

"The 2006 Cappella (60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Petit Verdot) exhibits an incredibly dense purple color as well as abundant aromas of sweet cassis, chocolate, espresso, charcoal, spice, and licorice, deep full-bodied flavors, and remarkable elegance. It comes across like a hypothetical blend of a Graves and St.-Emilion." 94 Points Wine Advocate

O'Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2006, 1.5L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain, California

"The only 2006 I tasted is a re-evaluation of the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain, which is performing better now than it did last year. A dense purple color in addition to plenty of creme de cassis, crushed rock, blueberry, and brioche-like notes are found in this full-bodied Cabernet. It avoids the rustic tannins of this vintage, and exhibits good sweetness and purity of fruit." 94 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2006, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Spring Mountain District, California

"The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate remains one of the finest bargains for long-lived California Cabernet Sauvignon. A dense purple color is followed by stunning aromatics of creosote, black olives, blackberries, cedar, and cassis. Full-bodied with a multi-layered texture, decent acidity, and substantial, but ripe, noble tannins, this excellent effort will benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age, and will be another 30+ year wine. This is an irrefutable source of remarkable Cabernet Sauvignons that last 20-30+ years! Philip Togni is a no-nonsense, tough-minded guy who is working alongside his daughter, so the succession at this winery is guaranteed should he ever decide to retire." 95+ Points Robert M.

Sine Qua Non Syrah A Shot in the Dark Eleven Confessions Vineyard 2006, 0.75L
Syrah from California, California

"The soon-to-be-released 2006 A Shot in the Dark is composed of 96.5% Syrah and 3.5% Viognier from the 11 Confessions Vineyard in the cool Santa Rita Hills. Performing better from bottle than it did from barrel, this prodigious red exhibits incredibly velvety tannins, a seamless style, and no noticeable oak (which is remarkable given the fact it spent 32 months in barrel). Dense purple to the rim with an extraordinary perfume of blueberry pie, blackberries, soy, Asian spices, and hints of forest floor and charcoal, this is a complex, rich, seamless, well-balanced tour de force in winemaking." 100 Points Robert M.

Andrew Will Proprietary Red Champoux Vineyard 2006, 1.5L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc / Merlot from Horse Heaven Hills, Washington

"Chris Camarda's 2006 blend from Champoux includes cabernets sauvignon (57 percent) and franc (35) with a small amount of merlot. Marrying Washington's sunpower and the elegance of one of its best vineyards, this is a quiet wine at the outset, revealing only savory, leafy notes of graphite, juniper and cumin against a background of plum. But the fruit deepens into flavors of cassis, the savory parts becoming meatier and more elemental, the tannins as mouthcoating as they are refined. Then a hint of orange peel lifts the finish. Quite a performance, and destined to be long lived." 95 Points Wine & Spirits

Andrew Will Proprietary Red Sorella 2006, 1.5L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc / Merlot from Horse Heaven Hills, Washington

"Chris Camarda produced his flagship wine from the oldest blocks of Champoux Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills (their average age is 30 years). It's more than two-thirds cabernet sauvignon this year, with the balance merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot. The age of the vines may account, in part, for the formidable power of this wine, brooding and distant, like a thunderhead on the horizon. For now, it reveals little beyond scents of graphite, juniper and pine, with a dark and fleshy fruit character. Give it several years for the primary fruit to mature, then serve with braised lamb." 93 Points Wine & Spirits
