Oh, that information would have been helpful...


12 Expertly Selected Wines and a Set of 4 Crystal wine glasses $69.99

THE WINES:

Choose from three case options on the Zagat Wines site: all reds, all whites, or a mix of both. Whichever dozen you choose, you’ll get full tasting notes on every bottle and a set of four Dartington Crystal glasses.

OPTION 1: THE REDS DOZEN

Gold-Medal Bordeaux: Château Le Coin 2011, Bordeaux (1 bottle)
This small estate classic (from prized 45-year-old vines) won gold at France’s top wine show.

Mature 2004 Gran Reserva: Ermita de San Lorenzo 2004, Campo de Borja (2 bottles)
Expect smooth, spicy black fruit in this patiently cellared Spanish red.

Top-Vintage California Cabernet: Silverstrike 2012, California (2 bottles)
William Knuttel’s sumptuous 2012 is just the thing for gourmet burgers.

Velvety Chilean Pinot Noir: Gran Tarapacá Reserva 2012, Leyda Valley (1 bottle)
Silky, raspberry-packed find from Chile’s coolest region. Serve lightly chilled.

Rare Southern Italian Gold Selection: Pillastro Selezione d’Oro 2010, Puglia (1 bottle)
Each sun-drenched old vine yields just one bottle of this luxurious, rib-ready treat.

Gold-Medal Rhône Classic: Le Prince de Courthézon 2012, Côtes-du-Rhône (2 bottles)
This acclaimed discovery offers layers of ripe blackberry and a lovely wild herb edge.

A Richer Style of Chianti: Duca di Cardino 2012, Chianti (2 bottles)
Hailing from southern Tuscany, this famously ripe Chianti demands meaty pasta dishes.

BIG Barossa Black Label: Yarrunga Field Black Label 2010, Barossa Valley (1 bottle)
Lavish, chocolaty Aussie Shiraz/Cab from the specialists at Warburn Estate.

OPTION 2: THE WHITES DOZEN

Winery of the Year Napa Chardonnay: Raymond ‘Family Classic’ 2010, Napa (1 bottle)
This rich, vanilla-oaky treat was crafted at Wine Enthusiast’s 2012 American Winery of the Year.

Intense New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc: Tikohi 2012, Marlborough (2 bottles)
A leap-from-the-glass, citrus-packed beauty from one of New Zealand’s pioneering estates.

Fashionable Spanish Albariño: Heredad Chavarri 2011, Rias Baixas (1 bottle)
Albariño is the talk of white wine (and seafood) lovers everywhere. This peachy find shows why.

Fine Italian Gavi: La Trombetta 2012, Gavi (1 bottle)
An exclusive taste of Northern Italy’s most highly prized white – the perfect apéritif.

Gold-Medal Argentine Torrontés Pinot Grigio: Alambrado 2013, Mendoza (2 bottles)
Two of the hottest whites of the moment come together in this acclaimed Argentine find.

Top-Estate Australian Chardonnay: The Yelverton 2012, Margaret River (2 bottles)
Margaret River is home to Australia’s top Chardonnays – this rich, barrel-aged gem hails from the No. 1 estate.

Uniquely Refreshing Chilean Reserva: Don Cayetano Reserva 2012, Central Valley (2 bottles)
Fresh from the IWSC’s 2012 Chilean Producer of the Year – a rare blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Viognier.

Thrilling Oregon Riesling: Firestead 2010, Oregon (1 bottle)
A great example of the world-class whites coming out of the North West. Try with spicy Asian cuisine.

OPTION 3: THE REDS & WHITES DOZEN

Gold-Medal Bordeaux: Château Le Coin 2011, Bordeaux (1 bottle)
This small estate classic (from prized 45-year-old vines) won gold at France’s top wine show.

Mature 2004 Gran Reserva: Ermita de San Lorenzo 2004, Campo de Borja (2 bottles)
Expect smooth, spicy black fruit in this patiently cellared Spanish red.

I added this to my collection of 06/07/08 & the 05 latitude 38.
Personally I'm not opposed to a little infanticide periodically so I will probably try one and stash the others.

If it makes you feel better, my guy did not offer it to his clients because he felt that there was too much bottle variation and quite a bit of vegetal character

Not much caring for vegetal character, I'll take this then as $$ saved, still, I'd like to try a glass. I think tytiger is going to make that happen.

Not sure there is anything older unless you look up Gus's Anderson's Conn Valley wines which are quite good.

While my list of procured wines is almost as extensive as yours, I admit I relied heavily on the great CT scores when i considered buying them. But, has anyone tried any of them yet? Has anyone done the tasting tour at Eagles Trace? It's $25.

I have tried the following Eagles Trace 08/07/06 and they a very very good and deserving of the ratings. I look forward to periodically sampling them as they continue to age.
I will continue to purchase them as they come up for sale. My current holdings:
