Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Cabernet sauvignon 2005

Sorry to say I turned 60 a couple of weeks ago. My daughters came in to celebrate this past weekend and we wanted to drink some good wine. What a trio: ‘12 Cade Reserve, ‘13 Cardinale, and ‘05 Leoville Las Cases. Ironically, I am going to score all 3 of these as 97+. They were really a treat. The Las Cases was decanted for 5 hours and it was clear that we were about 7 years too early. It’s a terrific wine and at at age ~25 it will be absolutely stunning. Already has balance and harmony. Can’t wait until I am about 67 so that I can revisit the remaking 11 bottles! — 3 months ago

Congrats, fine description


Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Outstanding Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas and flavors of blueberry, blackberry, coffee, cocoa and black pepper. Firm but not chewy tannins. Should smooch out with time. Rich and bold. Should improve with age. Excellent now, but great potential! — 42 minutes ago


Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Marqués de Murrieta

Finca Ygay Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2012

This Spanish Rioja is just as good as the CADE cab I just had and is less than half the price, therefore it gets a perfect score. The difference is the rioja is a tad bit sweeter in the beginning and possesses less tannins in the finish. It also has a little more buttery middle. Everything else is almost identical!!! - Dr Todd Vineyards and Herron Family Wines — 2 years ago
