St Estephe, Cru Grand Bourgeois Exceptional
*** 90 Points - James Suckling ***
This starts off a little bretty with barnyard undertones, but it blows off to flowers and rich fruit. Round and juicy, with yummy flavours. A long finish on this. Very spicy and earthy. St. Estephe character. Enjoy or age. (2/2011)
***90 points Wine Spectator***
Aromas of currant and fresh flowers follow through to a medium-to-full body, with chewy tannins and a slightly woody finish, but the fruit comes through. Turns long and pretty. Best after 2010. (JS, Web-2008)

Medoc (Presented in a dark mocha leather effect gift box as illustrated)
This wine from the outstanding 2005 vintage has deep red colour with crimson highlights. After swirling, the nose opens up to beautiful ripe red and black fruit underscored by fine-grained wood. Full attack, medium body, great balance. A classic, well-made Médoc, already showing great persistency.*Gilbert & Gaillard 2010*

Chateau de la Font du Loup
The 2005 Chateau de la Font du Loup opened up delightfully on the 2nd night with loads of liquorice, tobacco and leather around a sweet fruit core. Tannins had melted away and left a deliciously full bodied wine that gives me hope for some good ageing potential.

From the outstanding 2005 vintage and scoring 91/100 Parker Points, "I loved Fortia’s 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Baron. Made from 45% Grenache, 45% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, aged all in concrete tank, it’s loaded with Provencal character and exhibits lots of sweet black cherries, currants, licorice and hints of olive and mint on the nose. Medium-bodied, elegant and supple, with outstanding balance and length, it’s drinking at point now, yet should hold nicely for another 3-5 years." Drink now - 2020.

Quinta dos Malvedos
Deep, dark red colour with just a hint of fading along the edge. Gorgeous black cherry and plum aromas, with a wonderful fresh fruit fragrance and distinct notes of eucalyptus and hints of mint and liquorice. Luscious and opulent flavours coat the palate with full, rich blackberry fruit, intense and compact. A supple, muscular wine very pleasurable to drink now but with ample further ageing potential.

Colheita Port(Comes in Niepoort carton gift box as illustrated)
The small port shipping house of Niepoort has been handcrafting outstanding ports since 1842. Dirk Niepoort is currently the fifth generation of the family to personally oversee every wine which leaves the famous lodge in Vila de Gaia. Their extraordinary reputation is founded on a commitment to ancient vineyards, still treading most of their grapes in old granite ‘lagares' and bottling without filtration. As such, they remain regarded by many as the guardians of authentic port production.
Colheita ports are the products of a single year – in
this case 2005 - but are aged far longer in traditional casks.
