    (Clos des Jacobins) 2005 Bordeaux #2 Dear Friends, I realize it's the middle of the night but I just secured this and it's a really aggressive price - the lowest I could muster. There are contemplative examples and there are those that just bring a smile to your face - this is the later (although there's still plenty to contemplate). My 2005 Bordeaux search has yielded another top-notch bargain at this point - a perfect stash of 2005 Clos des Jacobins at about the same as or less than it was over a year ago on pre-arrival. This is starting to sound like a broken record but why hand over your hard-earned money 2-3 years in advance when there is no great savings? While there will always be exceptions (First Growths and some Seconds), I'm finding more and more wine at close to the first tranche prices years after the fact - even with 2005. The only caveat to this is the stocks are small - I have to bite immediately and there is no "I'll get back to you". With this one, the bite was an easy one to sink my teeth into - another steal of a price at this point: A wine that would go toe to toe with something like 1997 Pride Reserve Claret in its youth but it still retains the unmistakable slice of terroir that makes Bordeaux a singular experience. If you are paying princely sums for the very top echelon of domestic Cabernet (or blends - this has a preponderance of Merlot), you may want to take a close look at this. Fans of 2000 and 2005 Right Bank wines should not hesitate as well. This wine should also have secondary market potential once the 2005's start to dwindle. This parcel has the finest provenance available - it has not been traded between multiple negociants and importers. ONE SHIPMENT ONLY at this price: 2005 Clos des Jacobins St. Emilion Grand Cru Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Bord8566
