MITOLO Jester Shiraz 2016
Shiraz McLaren Vale
Estimate Per Bottle: 20-25

A JOKE? - JH94 crowd pleasing Shiraz for pennies? - have the last laugh - You Jest?  JH notes - Estate-grown at the southern end of McLaren Vale near the seaside town of Aldinga, cooled by sea breezes. The crimson-purple colour leads the way for a wine of considerable intensity and length, nimbly stepping around any sledgehammer blows of full-bodied shiraz. Elegance? Yes, but modesty might be a better one-word description, value another.

TEUSNER Big Jim Shiraz 2016
Shiraz Barossa Valley
Estimate Per Bottle: 60-70

BIG JIM IS A ROOSTER - this is one to crow about - JH95 and smooth words from Ned Goodwin - Crafted from select shiraz sourced from the Wark family's Stonewell site, this is a burly red invoking a Barossan classicism, while glimpsing a fresher zeitgeist. Some sexy oak, nicely toasted, is bundled together with kirsch liqueur and blue fruit allusions. The finish is persuasive, but what is truly hedonistic is the expansive sweetness across the wine's core, somewhat akin to drinking mulberry pie with some bitter chocolate thrown in. Creamy oak tannins wrap it all up nicely. A manicured package of rich fruit and well positioned oak for those who like it smooth.

1er Cru Classe Pauillac
Estimate Per Bottle: 1300-1500

SMART BORDEAUX - Ready to go -2002 produced some great wines like the Lafite - RP94 - Check the notes  - A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage, this is classic Lafite that reminded me somewhat of the 1976, although the vintage conditions were completely different. This is a medium-weight, quintessentially elegant style of Lafite with notes of lead pencil shavings/graphite along with black currants, plums, and crushed rocks/mineral. Wonderfully pure, dense, with a deep ruby/purple color and loads of fruit, definition, and a long finish, this is a brilliant, elegant Lafite Rothschild that builds incrementally in the mouth and has more power and density than it initially seems. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.

CHATEAU LATOUR 1er Cru Classe 2002
1er Cru Classe Pauillac
Estimate Per Bottle: 950-1000

SMART BORDEAUX - Ready to go -2002 produced some great wines like the Latour - RP96 - Check the notes  - The wine of the vintage? There are only 10,000 cases of this extraordinarily rich, dense 2002 that is as powerful as the 2003 (even the alcohol levels are nearly the same, 12.85%) . It is dark ruby/purple to the rim, with notes of English walnuts, crushed rocks, black currants, and forest floor, dense, full-bodied, and opulent, yet classic with spectacular aromatics, marvelous purity, and a full-bodied finish that lasts just over 50+ seconds. Huge richness and the sweetness of the tannin are somewhat deceptive as this wine seems set for a long life. Administrator Frederic Engerer seems to be more pleased with what Latour achieved in 2002 than in any other recent vintage. Hats off to him for an extraordinary accomplishment in a vintage that wouldn’t have been expected to produce the raw materials to achieve something at this level of quality. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2045.

Estimate Per Bottle: 160-180

SMART BORDEAUX - Ready to go -2002 produced some great wines like the Barton - RP92 - Check the notes  - Even better from bottle than from cask, and one of the finest wines of the vintage, this dense purple-colored 2002 reveals wonderfully sweet notes of charcoal, fresh mushrooms, smoke, earth, leather, cassis, and cedar. Full-bodied, highly extracted, broodingly backward, dense, and deep, this impressively endowed offering is built for the long term. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028. One of the classic wines of Bordeaux and still realistically priced, Leoville-Barton is becoming increasingly popular because of the extraordinary quality/price ratio it offers.

SMART BORDEAUX - Ready to go -2002 produced some great wines like the Margaux - RP93 - Check the notes  - Performing better from bottle than at any time in cask (which of course is the objective of great winemaking, isn’t it?), this wine reveals a dense ruby/purple color in a style somewhat reminiscent of the 1988 but with more power, concentration, and volume. It has a beautifully elegant nose of black fruits intermixed with truffle, flower, and oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied, dense, with wonderful precision, freshness, and a long, full-bodied finish with impressive levels of concentration. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030.

CHATEAU MOUTON ROTHSCHILD 1er Cru Classe 2002
1er Cru Classe Pauillac
Estimate Per Bottle: 950-1000

SMART BORDEAUX - Ready to go -2002 produced some great wines like the Mouton - RP91 - Check the notes  - Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2002 Mouton-Rothschild is a wine that burned brightly in its youth, though recent encounters suggest that maybe it is beginning to flag as it enters what you might call middle age. Here, it has a conservative bouquet with blackberry, cedar, warm bricks and melted tar aromas - an unfussy, uncomplicated, quite serious Pauillac bouquet. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity. It feels lively on the entry with fine tannin, a Mouton that is nimble on its feet with a gentle grip towards the finish, which offers a satisfying aftertaste of spice and clove. It does not mirror some of the outstanding bottles I consumed within the first decade of its life, and peering into this First Growth, it is difficult to see whether it will repay those who cellar it longer. Tasted December 2016.

CHATEAU PALMER 3me Cru Classe 2002
3me Cru Classe Margaux
Estimate Per Bottle: 300-350

SMART BORDEAUX - Ready to go -2002 produced some great wines like the Palmer - RP94 - Check the notes  - A successful wine for the vintage, this blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 8% Petit Verdot boasts complex notes of menthol, black currants, plums, licorice, and a hint of cappuccino in its stunning aromatics. Dense, medium to full-bodied, with high levels of tannin in a big, full-bodied style (much in the spirit of such classic Bordeaux vintages as 1966, 1986, and 1996), this wine possesses superb purity and serious length, but should be purchased only by those with considerable patience and a good, cold cellar, since it will need plenty of time. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028.

CHATEAU PICHON LONGUEVILLE Comtesse De Lalande 2me Cru Classe 2002
2me Cru Classe Pauillac
Estimate Per Bottle: 250-280

SMART BORDEAUX - Ready to go -2002 produced some great wines like the Pichon Comtesse  - RP94 - Check the notes  - One of the best wines of the vintage, this is a classic Pauillac that is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot. Dense ruby/purple in color with a glorious nose of melted licorice, lavender, barbecue smoke, black currants, and graphite, the wine is tannic, classically structured with an opaque ruby/purple color, beautiful definition, and a 1996-ish personality. This deep, full-bodied, elegant yet powerful 2002 should age handsomely for over two decades. Some patience will be required since this vintage exhibits more muscle and virility than normal. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.

An outstanding wine with a dark ruby/purple color and more power, richness, and concentration than its younger sibling, the 2002 reveals outstanding potential, exhibiting plenty of concentrated black currant fruit with some vanilla, herbs, and licorice. It has about the same level of tannin as the 2003, but seems to have sweeter fruit and more mid-palate and length. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2022
