In stock now at Forsyth....

2009 Chateau Meyney St. Estephe....$41.99 / 750ml
2009 Chateau Meyney St. Estephe....$19.99 / 375ml

"Spicy and beautiful, delivering blackberry and currant character. Full and silky, with beautiful fruit and a long finish. Score range: 92-95 –JS"
Rated 92-95/100 The Wine Spectator

2009 Cap de Faugeres...$22.99
The relatively new proprietor, Silvio Denz, has made his finest wine to date from this Cotes de Castillon property. A blend of 85% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that came in at 14% natural alcohol, it is a full-bodied, super-concentrated effort displaying excellent purity as well as lots of minerality and floral notes imbedded in black and blue fruits. The oak is totally masked, the tannins are prominent but sweet, and the wine is fresh and precise. A sleeper of the vintage, this beauty should drink well for 10-12 years. (Tasted four times.)
Rated 90-92/100 Robert Parker The Wine Advocate

2009 Chateau La Pointe Pomerol....$49.99
Violets, berries and black olive on the nose. Gorgeous. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, juicy finish. Lovely fruit and acidity to this wine. One of the best La Pointes for a long time. Score range: 92-95 –JS
Rated 92-95/100 The Wine Spectator

2009 Sarget de Gruaud Larose....$27.99
This is the second label of Gruaud Larose. Sarget had not been rated, but 2009 Gruaud Larose got a 94-97 from The Wine Spectator and Robert Parker called the 2009 Gruaud "finest Gruaud Larose since the 1990".

2009 Bernadotte....$28.99
"The finest La Bernadotte made to date, this 2009 is an undeniable sleeper of the vintage. Composed of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot, it reveals a dense purple color along with a big, sweet kiss of black cherries, black currants, charcoal, and spice. With layers of fruit, decent acidity, freshness, and precision, and an opulent, fleshy, succulent style, it should drink easily for a decade or more. (Tasted once.)"
Rated 90-92/100 The Wine Advocate
