    (CLOS DE SARPE) Overnight Dear Friends, Here are a few specials at great prices to wrap up the year. None of these are cast-offs, they are first-run wines that should cost a lot more. All would have been offers in their own right but quantities are too small. As always, all have impeccable provenance. Please limit requests to 6/each wine and we will allocate accordingly: 2006 Nicolas Cole Syrah "Dauphine" (Walla Walla) Last year's "Dauphine" was highly rated by the national press and given a nice review by Paul Gregutt - the 2006 should trump that wine by a wide margin as it's the first Dauphine to incorporate a majority of estate fruit in the blend. You can check pricing on the 2005 to see how good of a tarriff this is. This parcel is directly from the winery cellar. EXTREMELY LIMITED at this pre-release price (will be available early in the new year). 2005 Clos de Sarpe 750ml (St. Emilion) This incredible wine reminds me of what the 1900 Margaux must have been like on release - it is so old-school and layered with a tannic, gritty presence that it has the chance to last for 50-100 years (I'm not kidding). In addition, this price is less than the first tranche offer 2-3 years ago (but we don't have much so I'm burying it here in this offer)... 2002 Bodegas Alion (Vega Sicilia) Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Bord8570 WA5990 Spain6620

    (CLOS DE SARPE) 2005 Clos de Sarpe Dear Friends, I've only got one shot at this - Monday night or nothing so here goes... Those of you that missed out on 1945 Mouton when it was released may want to take a look at this – one of the highest scoring wines of the vintage and an outright bargain at this stage for a top 2005 (Lafite, Latour, Mouton and Cheval Blanc only received one additional point from Parker, 96, and I’m sure they all cost far more at this point). If you are looking for a wine that will undoubtedly appreciate in value and complexity over the next 30-50 years, this is your wine. If you have a birth year in 2005, this would be an excellent candidate for a 21st or 30th birthday. This wine has impressed everyone I know that has tasted it from bottle and the Chateau knows they’ve got a potential 1990 Beausejour-Duffau of a wine on their hands - a legend among wine collectors. Not only has Clos de Sarpe has been far more consistent than Beausejour Duffau has over the last decade, I would argue that Clos de Sarpe has been one on the top 5-10 properties in all of Bordeaux since 2000 and their wines have not increased in price exponentially with their success - refreshing indeed. We have one parcel of this wine at this price. It is coming as direct from the Chateau cellars as possible with perfect provenance: VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - THIS IS NOT VIA THE GREY MARKET: 2005 Clos de Sarpe - STRICT LIMIT 24/person until we run out Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Bord7770
