1993Beringer Private ReserveCabernet L-K3,4452  93WS, 92+RP
From Beringer's impressive line of reserve bottlings. Remarkable for its intensity, richness, depth and concentration, this is a big yet elegant wine stuffed with complex currant, leather, spice, sage and cedar flavors that fan out on the palate.

A classy and impressive young Bordeaux from an appellation that stepped up in '96.

1994HeitzCabernet L-E4 1  84WS
Spicy and peppery, of medium weight, with a modest range of dried cherry and berry flavors that turn dry and austere. Good but not exciting. Drink now through 2004. (JL)
1993Heitz Bella OaksCabernet L-E1501  91
Best version of this Rutherford-grown wine in nearly a decade. Aromatically complex, with pretty floral and plummy aromas, the lean, austere style slowly unfolds to reveal a broad range of complex flavors, with currant, spice, sage and cedar notes. Impeccably balanced, this late-release Cabernet will be best from 1999 to 2005. 1,521 cases made
1993Heitz Trailside VinyardsCabernet L-E3451  92WS
Deliciously complex, with ripe, juicy currant, black cherry and spice flavors. There's also plenty of toasty, vanilla-laced oak, but it wears the wood well and finishes with minty chocolate notes that linger. This late-release Cabernet drinks well now. Best from 1999 through 2007. 3,796 cases made.

1998Hogue Late HarvestRiesling Right Rear Diamond92  89WS
A frankly sweet wine sporting a crisp, lemony side to the light peach and apricot flavors, the ensemble gaining intensity on the balanced finish. This late-harvest Riesling isn't quite a dessert wine, but it's certainly sweet and flavorful. Good price, too. From Washington. Drink now through 2003
2005Hundred Acre Kayli MorganCabernet L-B63001   
1983Inglenook Reserve CaskCabernet R 15 degree 1  88WS
Cedar and menthol characters tend to outshine the fruit at this stage, with lots of tannin and some pretty fair Cabernet fruit and even an underlying silky texture. Big and powerful, very woody and definitely for the cellar

Generous in flavor, supple in texture, delivering a ripe mouthful of mint-shaded black cherry and currant flavors that linger on the open finish, echoing mint and fruit. Tannins are beautifully integrated. Best from 2005 through 2012. 15,884 cases made.

1995Pine Ridge Howell MountainCabernet L-J1,J2 2  88WS
Remarkably supple and refined for Howell Mountain, with spicy currant, herb, sage and mineral, finishing with dashes of tar and cedar. The tannins slowly work their way to the forefront, so it's best cellared. 1,640 cases made.
2005Pio CesareNebbiolo L-I4-9 6   
1995Pontet CanetBordeaux Rear Diamond 5  94WS
This is the best Pontet-Canet I have ever tasted. Dark ruby-colored, offering berry, raspberry and dark chocolate character. Full-bodied and very fruity, with big, velvety tannins. A glorious red, this goes on and on on the palate, displaying wonderful structure and fruit. Best after 2002
tried 2/25/02. still pretty closed. try again in a few yrs.
1996Pontet CanetBordeaux Wood case storage3512  90WS
WS-A young red, with bright black licorice and berry aromas and hints of spice. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and compact fruit structure. Slightly closed on the finish, but impressive nonetheless. Best after 2002; RP- “A classic Pauillac, the 1996 continues to flesh out, revealing an opaque purple color, and a magnificent creme de cassis nose reminiscent of the superb vintages of Mouton-Rothschild (Pontet-Canet's neighbor). The wine is full-bodied, as well as extraordinarily rich, ripe, and powerful, with layers of sweet black fruits intertwined with earth, minerals, and spicy oak. Massive on the palate, with lofty tannin, but equally high extract, this is a profound Pontet-Canet that may turn out to be even more classic and longer-lived than the 1995 and 1994. Terrific stuff! Anticipated maturity: 2006-2035”
Max's wine
2000Prieuré-LichineBordeaux Wood case storage 8  91WS
A solid young red, with big, velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit, tobacco and chocolate character. Long, fresh finish. One of the best Prieuré-Lichine in a long, long time. Best after 2007. 18,000 cases made.

"A wine of great balance, finesse and grace. Well-focused, the ripe, tart, rich blackberry and currant fruit is intense yet elegant, picking up earth, mineral and sage notes, and finishing with fine, well-integrated tannins. Drink now through 2012"
tasted April '02. very much like concentrated grape juice.
1993Robert Mondavi ReserveCabernet Rear Diamond506  90WS, 93RP

1999SausalZinfandel L-G4,5 2  90WS Highly Recommended
