Hot Off the Press: Parker Finally Weighs In & Really Does It!
At the end of April, the Wine Advocate and Robert Parker posted their initial 2008 Bordeaux Reviews and finally weighed in on one of the most “speculated” about Vintages in years!
Overall Robert Parker Calls the 2008 Vintage:
“dramatically better than I expected”
“a vintage of at least excellent quality”
“there are wines as profound as 2005”
“…the 2008 vintage turned out to be excellent, with a number of superb wines that are close to, if not equal to the prodigious 2005 or 2000 vintages (two years with many of the best wines I have ever tasted from top to bottom)…”
“…It did not take me long to realize that the 2008 vintage was dramatically better than I had expected. It had all the qualities that make an excellent and in some cases, a great vintage so special: exceptionally dark opaque colors, gorgeously ripe fruit, stunning purity almost across the board, great freshness (because it was a cool year), slightly higher acids than normal, and remarkable density as well as concentration….” Robert Parker, the Wine Advocate 4/09
Zachys On Futures: Zachys delivers!
Zachys started offering futures in 1972 and since that time Zachys has delivered every single case every single size exactly as ordered. We are batting 1000 and will continue to bat 1000. In the past few years when Bordeaux futures were being sold there were many instances with other stores where they could not deliver the goods.
Wine Spectator Says:
“We recommend that you only buy futures from reputable wine shops that have been in business for many years and have handled futures sales before...also, beware of a merchant whose futures prices are significantly lower than others. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.”
