2010 McClean X "Simone" Paso Robles Zinfandel  
Review Date: 3-23-2015
The Petite Sirah in this blend really makes a difference, even though it isn't the dominant partner, taking the Zinfandel well away from what you normally consider Paso Robles Zinfandel to be about. Black, tarry fruit, cocoa powder, and toasted coconut come out on the nose, leading into dusty, brooding, plummy fruit on the palate. Fine grained tannins make this easy to drink right now, and acidity keeps it lively.

2012 Paul Hobbs Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon  
Review Date: 3-23-2015
I can't tell you how many times over the last 6 months I have been asked when this is going to be available. Well, it's finally here. The black fruit takes command of this wine with just hints of blue fruit. Vanilla and oak are very apparent but will integrate with a little time or a couple hours in a decanter. Hobbs fans rejoice.

2012 Fattoria Selvapiana Chianti Rufina   | Public Pending Approval
Review Date: 3-23-2015
In my opinion, Selvapiana is not only one of the top wineries in Chianti Rufina but also a benchmark within Tuscany. This storied estate captures the unique terroir of the zone and produces wines with ample fruit, substantial acidity and excellent aging potential. Those looking for an exceptional value-priced and classically styled Chianti will definitely not want to miss this outstanding 2012.

2012 Shafer "One Point Five" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon  
Review Date: 3-23-2015
This is a big, fruit forward wine with flavors of cedar, vanilla, tobacco and deep chocolate surrounding it all. This is a Napa Valley wine all the way. 2-5 years of aging possible.

2012 Philippe Tessier "Les Sables" Cour Cheverny  
Review Date: 3-23-2015
The fruit for this bottling comes from 60 year old vines, versus a vine age of 30 years for the standard Cour-Cheverny. Not too different than its younger sibling, the 2012 “Les Sables” simply offers more of everything: there’s resin, lemon juice, hazelnut, beeswax, and dried citrus peel and ginger, on this medium bodied white wine, along with bracing acidity. Anyone lamenting the scarcity of stellar white Burgundy at bargain prices could do worse than to give this wine a whirl!

What a delicious, fruit forward wine from a very famous property in Yountville. Some 2013s are quite tannic, but this is more elegant than most. Maybe it gets its regal stature from its very famous owner.

A delicious wine that is perfect right now. Great cassis aromas follow to palate, which is soft, elegant and lingering.e. A steal for less than $20. This, and a rack of lamb would be heavenly.

More earth and plenty of extraction. Good mid-palate texture. Very nice. Good length. At UGC: Classic, with tons of mineral notes. Very rich and fresh. One of the best value 2009s from the Pessac area. Earthy style but toasty and sweet. Charming wine.
