    Here we are 15 plus years after this wine was released and these almost two decades it passed "resting" in the bottle, did their magic. The wine is perfectly aged and will make a classic and classy appearance on the dinner table. Woodsy aromatics, forest floor and an elegant touch of incense. It has its core fruit of plums framed by the marked tannins from this vintage. It softens on the finish, and you just want to take another sip followed by say... a nice morcel of lamb rack

    As employees of K&L, we are very fortunate to have the opportunity to taste such a well-curated selection of Bordeaux wines, especially older vintages. This wine is fantastic. At 18 years-old this is still full of life! The ripe, plummy fruit and tobacco aromas are so expressive, and on the palate there are some blackberry and spice notes, the tannins still have soft grip and the acid remains present. I loved this wine SO much I picked up a whole beef roast and some mashed potatoes on my way home from work just so I could enjoy the rest of this bottle. My colleague, Gary, was absolutely spot-on: the meat really did make this wine sing. I could not get enough of this and I was very disappointed when the bottle was empty.

    This excellent claret comes from the area between Margaux and St. Julien, and has all the hallmarks of a great 2000 from great terroir. This aromatic Bordeaux has dark cassis fruit, earth and best of all perfect texture from age in the bottle. After tasting it here at work, I bought a bottle and had it with a juicy ribeye. The meat made the wine come to life, and showed that it still has plenty of power and cut. The best part is the gentle alcohol, at just 13%, it is hard to believe that the wine has so much body! I can't recommend this highly enough.

    The power of the vintage is apparent immediately on the nose in this Citran, with concentrated notes of graphite, blackberry coulis, some cedar and just a hint of barnyard. There is great breadth and concentration of fruit, held up by great tannins with a structured, powerful finish that showcases a touch of amaro herbs. This screams for steak!

    There is lots of earth and leather in this big, bold wine which has softened around the edges but still shows the power of the incredible vintage. This hearty and substantial bottling is still a bit brooding when first opened but with air gushes of berry tort flavors and aromas fill out the surprisingly rich mid-palate. This is a big and very satisfying wine to enjoy with dinner any night.

    A modern style but finely balanced with lots of oak and fruit flavors. A superb value. Some orange peel on the nose-great bottle bouquet. Still has plenty of life for the cellar, but can be enjoyed now with decanting one hour. Full-bodied. Try with Prime Rib.
