WINE



Lot #288    

Opus One 1998 Napa Valley, Magnum

Rating:  90 by Wine Spectator

Tasting Note: Pomegranate, blueberry, black cherry and cassis notes lead into a full-flavored wine that remains concise and perfectly defined. Supple and lush, the 1998 Opus One shows an opaque purple color and intense aromas of blackberries, vanilla, roasted expresso and caramel.

MOR THANKS to Triple Creek Ranch, Darby, MT

Lot #289

Tamarack Cellars DuBrul Vineyard Reserve Rattlesnake Hills 2008

(6 liter)

Rating:  96 by Wine Enthusiast

Tasting Note: Dark, dense and spicy with layers of black pepper, licorice and tar around a packed core of fresh and dried cherry flavors.  The finish has density without being heavy.

MOR THANKS to The Wine Gallery & Doug Badenoch

Lot #290    

Grand Vin De Chateau Latour Premier Grand Cru Classe Pauillac 1990

Rating:  100 points Wine Spectator

Ranking:  #40 in Top 100 Wines of the Year

Tasting Note: This monumental wine signals a return to the more forceful, opaquely colored, powerful, brute-like strength style for which Latour was famous during most of this century. The 1990 exhibits tight but highly promising aromas of minerals, roasted nuts, and super-ripe, rich cassis fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2035.

MOR THANKS to Jon Chaney

Lot #291    

Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 2001

  96 points from Wine Spectator
  #7 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 in 2004.

Tasting Note: Deep and generous aromas of blackberries, fresh tobacco and minerals. It's full-bodied, with big velvety tannins and a super-long finish. Like a fine cashmere sweater. Best after 2010.

MOR THANKS to David Stensrud, Billings, MT

Lot #292    

Gaja Langhe Sperss 1998

Rating:  95 by Wine Advocate

Tasting Note:   Dark tar, smoke, leather, spices, menthol and black cherries all make an appearance in this muscular, full-throttle wine. It isn’t a crime to open a bottle today, but this is one of the few 1998s that still has upside potential.  Anticipated maturity: 2010-2023.  Wine Advocate

MOR THANKS to David Stensrud, Billings, MT

Lot #293    

Fidelitas Cabernet Sauvignon Ciel du Cheval Red Mountain 2009, 2010, 2012 and Fidelitas Cabernet Franc Ciel du Cheval Red Mountain 2009, 2010, 2012

Six bottles Total

Includes:

Fidelitas Cabernet Sauvignon Ciel du Cheval 2009 - Red Mountain

Rating:  93 by Wine Spectator

Tasting Note:  This is a wine that, though quite approachable in its youth, will only show its best after years of aging. Archetypal Lizzie flavors abound, a mix of pie-cherry and Indian spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom). Aromas of red cherry, ripe strawberry, and spice tones leap from the glass. Currant, dark cherry, tomato stem, and coffee flavors swirl through the palate, set in fine grained tannins. Drink now through 2020.

Fidelitas Cabernet Sauvignon Ciel du Cheval 2010 - Red Mountain

Rating:  91 by Wine Spectator

Tasting Note:  Firm and chewy, with sage and thyme accents to black cherry and savory spice flavors, prevailing against the tannins on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2020. Exhibits textbook Cabernet Sauvignon aromas and flavors of black fruits, leafy herbs, chocolate, pepper and hints of flowers along with a seriously structured, yet concentrated and textured profile. Drink now-2024

Fidelitas Cabernet Sauvignon Ciel du Cheval 2012 - Red Mountain

Rating:  94 by Wine Advocate

Tasting Note:  Broad, open-textured and distinctive, with purple plum, blackberry and cedar flavors, which move quickly beyond a layer of crisp tannins, finishing with expressive depth.

Fidelitas Cabernet Franc Ciel du Cheval 2009 - Red Mountain

Tasting Notes:  This is the only varietal Cabernet Franc being sourced from this iconic Red Mountain vineyard.  The deeply ruby hued wine offers earthy aromas with notes of cherry, raspberry, dill and green bean---all true to the varietal.  On the palate, flavors of dark red cherry, blueberry and vanilla swirl amongst grainy tannins and linger for an expressive finish.

Fidelitas Cabernet Franc Ciel du Cheval 2010 - Red Mountain

Rating:  88 by Wine Advocate

Six Total

Includes:

E. Guigal Cote-Rotie Chateau. d'Ampuis 2000

2 Bottles

Rating:  88 – 91 by Wine Advocate

Tasting Notes: Smoky and slightly bacony on the nose, but also quite cedary. The lavish oak is even more apparent in the mouth, where cedar and vanilla flavors take charge. It's supple, easy to drink and a very enjoyable wine.

2 Bottles

Rating:  88 by Wine Spectator

Tasting Notes:  Surprisingly mature, with overt roasted applewood and a hint of aged balsamic giving way to roasted plum, fig and blackberry notes and a slightly soft, Turkish coffee- and caramel-tinged finish. More advanced than expected.

 Adelsheim Yam Hill County Pinot Noir Elisabeth’s Reserve 1998

Rating:  92 by Wine Spectator

Reviews:   Bright and juicy, with a solid core of black cherry, herb and spice flavors on a polished frame. Has a nice zing of citrusy acidity behind it as well.  Light, focused and impressive for the clarity of its perfumed cherry, raspberry and floral flavors, lingering beautifully against refined tannins.

Chateau L’Eglise-Clinet Pomerol 1995

Rating: 96 by Wine Spectator

One of the greatest wines ever produced at this estate. A big and decadent wine that beckons you to taste it. Fabulous. Opulent aromas of fruit, game and tobacco. Full-bodied and supervelvety, with a lengthy autumnal aftertaste.
