Welcome to Vickers' Liquors
Dominus Napa Valley Red 1996 3L BottleThe 1996 growing season was nearly perfect, one where everything seems easy. Of course, the team at Dominus was leery about this, and concentrated on their work in the vineyard even more than usual, in order to get the best quality grapes. Their efforts were rewarded; the wine is beautifully complex and well balanced.
Fonseca Vintage Port 1997 1.5LAn attractive, floral scented nose, elegant and complex; raspberry and fresh berry aromas. A very elegant, smooth and complete wine. Hints of tobacco and cedar wood spice - enormous depth. Lovely rich fruit and big tannins. Long finish.

Château-Hosanna Pomerol 1999 1.5L
Torbreck The Struie 2002 1.5LThe Struie sources fruit from the high altitudes of Eden Valley imparting delicate spice, white pepper and fruit characters, while the Barossa component displays a richer, deeper more brooding flavour and intensity. The combined structure will reward extended cellaring.
Torbreck The Factor 2002 1.5L
Torbreck Descendant 2002 1.5LThe deep red clay soils in this vineyard produce fruit which is very savory, textured and rich. Fermentation with Viognier gives it an extra dimension - a satin-like texture and a glorious perfume.
Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape 1993 3LDeep red colour with red brick overtones. Pleasant nose with aromas of macerated berry fruit, and a herbaceous touch. The palate is delicate and fresh, with firm but pleasant tannins.
Mr. Riggs Shiraz 2004 1.5LComponents of the Mr. Riggs Shiraz from all three vineyards were fermented in traditional open fermenters, and following pressing, finished their fermentation in oak of which approximately 80% was French and the balance American, 40% of which was new oak. Vineyard parcels were kept separate during fermentation and maturation and were blended three months prior to bottling. This is the fifth release of Shiraz under the Mr. Riggs label, and as with it's predecessors' the wine is based around a core of pristine fruit with dark red berries, hints of spice, earth, tar and leather and with seamlessly integrated oak. Ripe tannins are apparent but not overwhelming, meaning this is a wine which can be enjoyed now or in the next 10-15 years.
Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 1.5LConcentrated, lovely black fruits aromas of blackberry, blueberry and cassis. The mouthfeel is luscious and full with continued flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry with a suggestion of vanilla, coconut and cedar. The soft, round tannins and understated acidity of this wine complement the bright fruit characters to create a balanced Cabernet Sauvignon approachable now or worthy of cellaring for at least 10-15 years.
Chateau Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 5LThe intense deep crimson color in the glass pulls you in, while the huge powerful nose captivates; layer on layer of spice, cedar, earth, and tobacco - all over a rich base of ripe black cherry, blackcurrants, cassis, and blueberry jam. The hook is set with the first whiff. Rich, round, juicy and mouth-coating, the palate delivers black cherry and black currant before moving on to brighter red fruits. More subtle tones of butterscotch, anise, and sweet oak complement the fruit beautifully. The huge classic structure of fine grain tannin and firm acidity persist all the way through to the clean crisp spicy finish.
Torbreck Les Amis 2002 1.5L
Torbreck RunRig 2001 1.5LThe RunRig has drawn comparison with the beautifully fragrant & tautly structured wines produced from the slopes of the Northern Rhône Valley's Appellation of Côte Rôtie.
Girard Artistry 2012 1.5LThe 2012 Artistry showcases essence of vanilla bean, perfumed herbs, raspberry and blackberry traits with a touch of toasted nuts. On the palate the black fruit comes forward with layered black currant and blackberry. French oak lends mocha and vanilla accented spice and roasted sweetness. The tannins are very well developed and should integrate as the wine decants or is allowed to cellar time.

Merryvale Profile 1997Profile is a blend of our best lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, chosen for their concentration, depth of flavor and fine tannin structure. This wine was aged in new French oak chateau barrels and bottled unfiltered. It is very dark and opulently structured -- characteristic of this very ripe vintage. In its youth the wine is loaded with flavors reminiscent of dark berries, plums and black cherries, with fragrant notes of vanilla and spice. The wine's mouthfeel is rich, round and seamless.
Torbreck The Factor 2002 1.5L
Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape 2004Dark ruby colour with purple tinges. The elegant nose shows ripe cherries, spices and a hint of wild herbs. The mouth is round and finely textured, both fleshy and fresh. Fine balance between lovely ripe fruit and a delicate tannic structure.
Brancaia Il Blu 2004The top-product of the Brancaia brand. The Supertuscan IL BLU proves the performance of Brancaia in terms of elegance, complexity and intensity. As a rule, food with pronounced taste, dark meat such as beef or lamb, roast or braised game, dark-feathered game such as pigeon or pheasant.
Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac 2009Very powerful and well-balanced. The colour is deep and the nose reflects the sunny growing season with remarkable ripeness and overtones of blackcurrant and black fruit. The wine starts out unctuous and straightforward on the palate with impressively concentrated, elegant tannin accompanied by plenty of body. 2009 Lynch-Bages has a rich and opulent flavour enhanced by fresh acidity that contributes to perfect balance and an incredibly long aftertaste.
Château-Léoville-Las-Cases Saint Julien 2010Dark, intense and concentrated, Château Léoville-Las Cases is a tannic and richly fruity wine that takes over 10-15 years to mature. Château Léoville Las Cases is one of the largest and oldest classified growths in the Médoc. Originally the other two Léovilles, Léoville Poyferré and Léoville Barton were part of the large estate.

Bond Pluribus 2007Pluribus, which debuted in the 2003 vintage, is defined as a bold, rich and concentrated wine; elements of dark plum, roasted coffee, and scents of cedar are inherent throughout the vintages.
Château-Haut-Brion Pessac Léognan 2010This wine is a superb ruby-red color with purplish highlights. The initially closed-in bouquet opens up nicely on aeration. The wonderfully subtle aromas follow through in quick succession, starting with oaky overtones, followed by red-berry fruit, leading into terroir character: cocoa powder, roasting coffee, and Havana cigars. The initial softness on the palate gradually evolves to reveal the tannic backbone. Despite their dense structure, the tannins are amazingly silky. The overall freshness carries the flavors through into an aftertaste that goes on and on. This wine has all the depth and smoothness of the 1989, the density of the 2000, the freshness of the 2005 and the richness of the 2009. the 2010 Chateau Haut Brion is so ideally well-balanced, it verges on perfection.
Chateau Trotanoy Pomerol 2009One of the greatest vintages of the last 60 years, and already a benchmark for its power and natural concentration.
Penfolds Grange 2008COLOR: Impenetrable dark core. NOSE: Somewhat intimidating? Yes. Brazen? Never. An immediate and powerful lift of cola/soy/hoisin/red licorice, propelled by tea-smoke and ferric influences. Less obvious nut-husk/tan-bark notes align with lush aromas of ripe (jamon-wrapped) figs and a panaforte plushness. With air, blueberry fruits and mocha arise, the oak (100% new!) remaining concealed-too much aromatic background chatter to register! PALATE: A muscular push/wave/affront across the entire palate-from start to finish. Never oppressive nor ungainly, yet captivatingly forceful. i.e. a vinous lava flow of dark licorice and malt-'molten', with a self-saucing chocolate pudding richness and blackberry, elderberry fruits. Pronounced tannins are unleashed, and the Clare component makes its (9%) presence felt, adding to both flavour pool and extract. Power and density naturally respectful of balance and structure. Penfolds Grange displays fully ripe, intensely flavoured and textured Shiraz grapes. The result is a unique Australian style that is now recognised as one of the most consistent of the world's great wines. The Grange style is the original and most powerful expression of Penfolds multi-vineyard, multi-district blending philosophy.
Chateau Trotanoy Pomerol 2010
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cask 23 Cabernet Sauvignon 2013The 2013 CASK 23 combines the signature perfume notes of FAY vineyard with the structure and minerality of S.L.V. Aromas of black cherry, cola, currant and ripe figs begin the nose of this rich and opulent Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is full of black fruit (black plum and black cherry) and blueberry flavors that lead to an intense, lingering finish with a touch of cocoa. Food pairings: Grilled New York steak, prime rib with jus, or black pepper-crusted Ahi tuna steaks.
