~ Selections To Be Tasted~
 
 
2010 J. Sanders Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
Burgundy, France
 
The Grands Crus of Gevrey-Chambertin are iconic Pinot Noir wines; powerful, virile, complex and intense. They demand equally complex, hightoned dishes to keep the pairing in balance. Feathered game (grilled or, better still, in wine sauce) will, of course, be a worthy companion. The power of these wine’s tannins will withstand the shock of contrasting textures while its aromatic complexity and above all its opulence will bring out the differences.
 
Sherlock’s Tasting Notes: A notably earthier nose of red currant, wild dark berries and humus leads to impressively intense big-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration as well as outstanding depth and length on the moderately austere finish. This should be reasonably approachable young but be capable of extended cellaring to good effect.

2002 Chateau Clos L’Eglise
(Pomerol) Bordeaux , France
 
Belonging to the aristocracy of the Pomerol is not the result of a decision but a heritage of quality and tradition, as in case of Clos L’Eglise. Just over three quarters of a century ago, in 1925, Savinien Giraud, the owner of Ch Trotenoy and President of the viticultural and agricultural Union of Pomerol, submitted to the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce a “Classification” of the greatest wines of Pomerol, with Clos L’Eglise listed among the leading runners. This is why it is possible to date the reputation of Clos L’Eglise and the rank assigned to it by its peers, the members of the Union.
 
Wine Advocate 93 Points: Along with Petrus, Clos l’Eglise is one of the finest wines of the vintage in Pomerol. 80% Merlot and 20% Cab Franc, it’s deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a sumptuous perfume of mocha, fudge, vanilla, black cherries, espresso, and plums, a creamy, full-bodied texture, gorgeous purity, and a long, persistent finish with no hard edges. It is quite an achievement! Anticipated maturity

2010 Chateau Palmer – Alter Ego de Palmer
(Margaux) Bordeaux, France
 
 A gentleman, officer, and aide-de-camp of the Prince of Wales, Charles Palmer was famous at the English court as a ladies man and for his military victories. He fell under the spell of Bordeaux as well as the charms of Marie de Gascq, a beautiful widow who convinced him to buy her estate.
 
In June 1853, the brothers Isaac and Emile Péreire, famous bankers and rivals of the Rothschilds, bought Palmer and began investing in the estate immediately. However, there was not enough time to bring Château Palmer up to first growth status in time for the famous 1855 classification. It was thus ranked a Third Growth, although it is widely recognized as among the greatest wines of Bordeaux.
 
Several families of Bordeaux, English, and Dutch extraction all involved in the wine trade, united to buy Palmer in 1938 and have worked hard to give the estate its present reputation. These families have always given priority to quality, despite the financial risk this entailed. They have unfailingly applied the principles that have made the great wines of Bordeaux so successful: authenticity, quality, and permanence.
 
Robert Parker 93 Points: An equal-part blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 Alter Ego represents 50% of the crop at Palmer. It has been an interesting second wine to take note of ever since the first vintage in 1998. The 2010 displays loads of chocolaty espresso notes, with plenty of punch, glycerin and unctuosity as well as some tannin like its bigger sister, but it is clearly meant to be drinkable at a much earlier age.

2013 Hawk & Horse Vineyards Sua Sponte
Napa Valley, California
 
Hawk and Horse Vineyards was really the dream of the owner, David Boies. His love of wine and of California’s North Coast wine growing region drove him to seek out a unique property that would support a vineyard of world class distinction. In 1982, after exhaustive searching he purchased what was then known as the historic El Roble Grande Ranch in Lower Lake, California. At that time, El Roble Grande was a rather run-down abandoned horse breeding facility situated on 900 acres of wilderness.
 
David’s vision of perfect growing conditions, such as rich soil, fresh water and clean air, transcended preconceived notions about county affiliations. David saw the high elevation sites, red volcanic soils, on-site water sources, pristine air and the rugged natural beauty of this most special place, and realized this was a land of great potential. His vision saw the opportunity to create something very unique and authentic from this wild land and that vision has now come to fruition.
 
 
Wine Enthusiast 94 Points: Very small production, only 148 cases made. This wine has bold aromas of wood smoke and vanilla, a very firm, fine-grained and tannic texture, and lots of black cherry and dark plum flavors. It’s a big, robust wine—pour alongside hefty proteins and settle back for the evening.
 
49% Petit Verdot, 32% Cabernet Franc, 16% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon
 
$169.99*
 
 
 
2013 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, California
 
Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Caymus Napa Valley is more representative of a standard Cabernet of Napa Valley, as it is a bit less precocious than the Special Selection, but still delivers big. Caymus prides itself on producing wines that are as approachable in youth as well at maturity. Both the “Napa Valley” and “Special Selection” Cabernets are produced under the winemaking hand of Chuck Wagner.
 
Wine Enthusiast 95 Points: A rich, dense ruby color, hints at the dark fruit nose of blackberry and currant that carries through to the palate, interwoven with complex aromas of black licorice, anise and crème de cassis. On the palate, the wine opens up to reveal an earthiness, with brown spice, cigar box and ripe dark fruits that linger throughout the extracted and long finish. The texture is opulent and rich, yet has a velvety quality with supple density. Rich, fine-grained tannins are balanced with ripe fruit, acidity and oak.
 
$179.99*
 
 
2014 Continuum – Sage Mountain Vineyard
 
Continuum is a celebration of the Mondavi family’s proud history in Napa Valley; a single wine from a single estate committed to standing in the company of the great wines of the world. Located high atop Pritchard Hill on the eastern side of the Napa Valley, Continuum is a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
 
Tim Mondavi believes that wine is an artistic expression of man’s harmony with nature and as such, production practices at Continuum honor and support the vineyards through balancing the essence of classic techniques with modern day innovations. Continuum’s goat is to craft balanced wine of power, finesse and elegance – wines that re expressions of the land, the people and the vintage.
 
James Suckling 99 Points: Fabulous aromas of blueberries, blackcurrants, sage and mint. Lead pencil and graphite, too. Full body and ultra-fine tannins that are slowly transformed to ripe and beautiful fruit. Super polished and textured. Great finish. Drink in 2022, but it’s hard not to drink now. This harkens back to the great Mondavi reserves of the 1970s in texture and construction.
