  1. Opus One 1999
    $349.98
    Availability:In Stock
  2. Chapoutier Crozes Hermitage Les Varonniers 2003 Pre-Arrival
    WA94
    $79.98
    94 Points!  Looking first at his Crozes Hermitage, and a wine that will stand toe to toe with any number of Hermitages, the 2003 Crozes Hermitage Les Varonniers offers thrilling black fruits, saddle leather, spice and cured meat-like qualities to go with a sexy, full-bodied, and layered profile on the palate. It will continue to evolve gracefully, but there’s no reason to delay gratification and I’d enjoy this fabulous Syrah over the coming couple of years. - Jeb Dunnuck, robertparker.com, 2014

  3. Greenock Creek Shiraz Barossa Valley Creek Block 1999
    WA96
    $99.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points!  The prodigious 200-case lot of 1999 Shiraz Creek Block (made from 63-year old vines) is aged in new and old French oak. The aromas of creme de cassis, new saddle leather, vanilla, spice box, and cedar are reminiscent of a first-growth Bordeaux. As the wine sits in the glass, more Shiraz characteristics (asphalt and blackberries) emerge. Sensationally concentrated and extremely full-bodied, with monster extract, yet not over-the-top, it possesses beautifully integrated tannin as well as acidity. This profound Shiraz should age effortlessly for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020. - Robert Parker, robertparker.com, 2002

  4. Vietti Barolo Rocche 1999
    VM95
    $179.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points!  The mid to late 1990s were a period of considerable change in Piedmont, as the differences between traditional and more modern-leaning producers were especially marked during this time. The 1999 Barolo Rocche is the star of this flight, as it has all of the classicism of the 1996, but with a little more perfume and inner sweetness, both of which serve to flesh out the mid-palate nicely. What a vivid and utterly captivating Barolo the 1999 is. I have always had a weak spot for the vintage. When I taste the 1999 Rocche, I am once again reminded why.

  5. Vietti Barolo Brunate 1999
    VM92
    $179.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points!  Dark ruby. With the Brunate we move into the house's more modern-styled wines. It shows the balsamic nose typical of this great vineyard, along with toasted oak, smoke, mineral and tar aromas with excellent concentration in its sweet dark fruit, as well as notable expansiveness and depth of expression. This bottling often appears out of balance when young as the new oak requires a few years to integrate fully into the wine, but patience will be amply rewarded. It should drink well to age 20.

  6. Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis 1999
    VM93
    $189.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  Sandrone's 1999 Barolo Cannubi Boschis has become much more delicate over the last few years. Still fresh and vibrant, the 1999 impresses for its total sense of harmony. The tannins are now starting to melt away, allowing the fruit to be fully expressive. Violets, lavender and blue/purplish fruit grace the finish. There is a lot to like here.

  7. Domenico Clerico Barolo Percristina 1999
    VM93
    $119.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  Clerico's 1999 Barolo Percristina is a dark, sumptuous beauty. Chocolate, menthol, black fruit, leather and spices flesh out in a round, resonant Barolo with no hard edges and fabulous overall balance. This gorgeous Barolo captures the essence of the full-throttle modern style that was all the rage at the time.

  9. La Conseillante Pomerol 1999
    WA92
    $149.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points!  Here it offers a fragrant rather than ebullient bouquet with wild strawberry, cedar, cigar box and just a hint of vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity. Whilst not a complex wine it has plenty of tart red cherry fruit and dried orange peel curled around the slightly brutish tannins, then it cruises rather than fans out on the finish. Tasted March 2013. - Neal Martin, robertparker.com

  10. Sociando Mallet Jean Gautreau Haut Medoc 2003
    JS93
    $94.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    93 Points! Lots of ripe and dark fruit with hints of almonds and dark chocolate on the nose. Full body with juicy fruit and a long, caressing finish. Lovely texture to this young wine. This hot year was excellent in the Northern Médoc. A special barrel selection from Sociando Mallet. Drink or hold. - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

  11. Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 2003
    WA100
    $1,224.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 Points! The 2003 Lafite Rothschild comes as close to perfection as any of the great Lafites made over the past three decades (1982, 1986, 1996, 2000, 2005, 2008, 2009 and 2010). This sensational effort came in at 12.7% natural alcohol, it is made in the style of one of this estate’s great classics, the 1959. Composed of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color to the rim along with a luxurious bouquet of cedarwood, lead pencil shaving, white chocolate, cocoa and cassis. Fat, rich, opulent and full-bodied with low acidity and stunning seductiveness and complexity, this noble wine possesses a bountiful, generous, heady style. It is just coming into its plateau of maturity where it should hold for 20-25 years. This is one of the candidates for the wine of the vintage – make no mistake about that. - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
