2009 Funky Llama Malbec
2012 Chateau Haut Bergey Pessac Leognan (Futures)
-Reviewed by: Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - 90 to 93 pts
"Showy style, with lots of ganache and dark toast leading the way, backed by ample plum sauce, fig paste and currant confiture notes. Long, charcoal-framed finish has plenty of heft. Not shy in style, this has density and drive."

"A bright tobacco leaf and savory note up front is followed by sleek black cherry, plum and blackberry fruit that has melded nicely. Long, alder-tinged finish has lovely minerality. Distinctive."

Reviewed by: Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate - 90 to 93 pts
"This has a bold, spicy lead, with flashes of anise, cocoa and cinnamon giving way to lightly mulled cherry, raspberry and plum fruit. Delivers a velvety feel on the finish, showing good cut."

"Barrel Sample. The second wine of Haut-Brion, this is soft, fruity and full of black currant notes. It is gentle and rounded, with the freshness that comes from the vintage."

2013 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux Margaux (Futures)
Reviewed by: Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate - 91 to 93pts
"Barrel Sample. This wine is tight and structured, although it does also have ripe, almost jammy fruit. There is a touch of black currant that brings out some warmth and roundness to the palate, making the wine feel more complete at this early stage."
2013 Chateau Clerc Milon Pauillac (Futures)
Reviewed by: Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast - 89-91pts
"A light toasty note sits atop the plum and currant fruit for now, with alder and juniper accents lining the slightly taut finish. Seems rather tight and backward today, featuring a plum skin edge that holds sway on the finish. Shows good stuffing for the vintage. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Carmenère.—Tasted non-blind."
