2011 Columbia Crest "Reserve" Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $40)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Velvety, round and dense, with licorice accents to the smoky black currant and dried plum flavors, picking up floral notes as the finish pushes against a light veil of firm tannins. (HS)" (12/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a stunner that comes from one of the more difficult vintages in the last decade. It has remarkable purity in its black and blue fruits, graphite, smoked herbs and licorice-scented aromas and flavors, and this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a great texture and sweet, slightly rustic tannin.

2014 Celler Cal Pla "Black Slate" Porrera Priorat

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Part of the collection from different villages from Priorat, Cellar Cal Pla produced a 2014 Black Slate Porrera, which is a blend of 50% Garnacha with 40% Cariñena and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a village wine from 20- to 30-year-old vines on slate soils fermented in stainless steel and concrete vats and matured in 225- and 300-liter oak barrels (80% French oak, 20% Hungarian) for one year. The nose is beautiful, combining violets, a hint of beef blood, something ashy and an organic, soil note, developing a smoky bacon twist with time in the glas ...Read More »

Amazing aromas of chipped asphalt, smoked beef, dense boysenberry, soy, cedar, sandalwood and soy drop into a palate of peppery berry juice, beef jerky, underripe blackberry and elderberry, and pepper-crusted teriyaki beef.

Light-bodied and bone dry with a racy line of acidity cutting through the intense citrus and mineral flavors, it finishes with great freshness and length.

One would have to go back to the 1990, 1991, 2001, or 2002 to find a Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve this impressive.

2008 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Red Blend (375ml) Back In Stock!
2008 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Red Blend (375ml)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Monte Bello is striking. It is a decidedly muscular Monte Bello endowed with layers of dark fruit. Tobacco, mint, asphalt and crushed rocks develop in the glass, adding tons of complexity and finesse. A long, saline finish rounds things out beautifully. In 2008 the cold growing season stretched into October and the wine definitely has the feel of a cool vintage. The spring frost and the second year of drought conditions lowered yields significantly.

At the same time, the crisp fruit of the vintage gives a lift to the deep concentration. Let the wine develop over several years. (RV)" (4/2017) 92 points James Suckling: "Blackberry, mushroom and flower aromas follow through to a full to medium body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish.

The tongue tingles throughout the sip, with flavors of crisp apple, yellow melon and crushed chalk. Buttercream appears on the finish." (2/2015) Vinous: "Bright yellow.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Weber Vineyard comes from vines planted in 1983. It has a very refined bouquet with red cherry, wild strawberry, sous-bois and subtle floral notes - very complex and classy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, nicely structured with a gentle grip. The fruit veers towards the darker side of the spectrum towards the finish, with blackberry and cranberry fruit, long and edgy. Classy, composed and cool, this is how to make world-class Pinot Noir.

An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate.

(6/2008) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...the 2005 Leoville Poyferre is a gorgeously opulent, approachable wine that is far less massive and austere than its two siblings.

Blackcurrants, blackberry, spring flowers and pen ink, in a full-bodied, in-your-face and rather flamboyant, dramatic style, are all part of its appeal and personality. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.

2007 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A great wine in the making, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (just under 10,000 cases produced) possesses a fragrant bouquet of sweet black currants, crushed rocks, earth and background oak. Full-bodied and dense, with Montelena’s typical power, tannin and reserved nature, this is a big, rich, formidably endowed red that requires 4-5 years of cellaring. That in itself is atypical of this exuberant, flamboyant vintage. Given this cuvee’s past history, this 2007 should age for 30+ years. 94+ (RP)" (12/2010) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated, deep ruby-red.

It was certainly showing well when I stopped by the chateau in January.

This blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc is a gorgeous example of the Private Reserve.

Returning after one 45 minutes that nose has shut up shop.

2010 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2010 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is, as always, a gorgeous wine, rich, balanced and delicious. It shows classic Napa Valley ripeness, with blackberry jam, plum, dark chocolate and sweet oak flavors. Plush and velvety doesn’t begin to do it justice. Despite its fabulous lushness, this is a wine to age. Depending on your taste, it will provide excellence from now until 2030. *Cellar Selection*" (12/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A gorgeously intense bouquet of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, black currants, blackberries, and subtle smoke and foresty aromas jumps from the glass of this full-bodied, rich, ...Read More »

2002 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2002 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational 14,000-case cuvee that is one of the benchmarks for what Napa Valley is capable of achieving. Its dense purple color is followed by copious notes of smoky barbecue, creme de cassis, white chocolate, blackberries, charcoal and truffles. Full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with sweet tannins in the finish, this 2002 has not yet hit full maturity. Give it another 2-4 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following two decades. I asked the winemaking team what the final blend was for the 2002 Private Reserve, and to the best of their recolle ...Read More »

2009 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac Back In Stock!
2009 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Performing even better from bottle than it did from barrel, this appears to be the finest Lynch Bages since the 2000, 1990 and 1989. According to the chateau, the 2009 has the highest level of polyphenols ever measured as well as high alcohol (nearly 13.5%). A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest largely Merlot with touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it is an expressive, voluptuously textured effort with unctuosity and powerful, juicy, succulent blackberry and black currant flavors, low acids, a layered, massive mouthfeel, but no sense o ...Read More »

2009 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac Back In Stock!
2009 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing incredible quality and performing better than it did from barrel, the 2009 appears to be the greatest Pichon Longueville Baron since the 1990 and 1989. An amazing opaque blue/purple color is followed by scents of spring flowers, graphite, smoky charcoal, incense, blackberries, blueberries and hints of coffee and chocolate. Incredibly intense, pure and flawlessly constructed with extravagant layers of fruit and richness, this offering has developed beautifully under the management of Christian Seeley. It is a voluptuous, opulent Pichon Longuevil ...Read More »

2012 Bodegas Aleanna Cabernet Franc "El Enemigo" Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Argentina Back In Stock!
2012 Bodegas Aleanna Cabernet Franc "El Enemigo" Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Argentina

98 points James Suckling: "Incredible depth of aromas of black mushrooms, wet earth, and dark fruits. Full body, super silky tannins and a refined finish. It lasts for minutes on the palate. A thought-provoking wine that makes you think. Glorious. Drink now or hold for ages." (5/2016) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the 2012 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard almost made me fall from my chair. It is the expression of elegance and austerity coupled with strong minerality. It is mostly Cabernet Franc from a very chalky vineyard in Gualtallary at 1,430 meters altitude that fermented together with a ...Read More »

1993 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (Balthus Label) Back In Stock!
1993 Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac (Balthus Label)

90 points James Suckling: "Mouton's great winemaking comes to the fore in this wine in the face of the difficult year of 1993. It's a surprisingly substantial Bordeaux for such a wet growing season, even now displaying strong blackberries and mint flavors. Full-bodied with tannins that are just coming around." (11/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1993 is a beautifully made wine which could be considered a sleeper of the vintage. The wine boasts a dark purple color, followed by a sweet, pain grillee, roasted nut, and cassis-scented bouquet that is just beginning to open. In the mouth, the wine may not poss ...Read More »

2013 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Harvest from September 10th to October 10th, the 2013 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast is a sexy, supple and textured effort that has lots of jammy dark fruits, licorice and toasted spice. Surprisingly textured and rounded, it has terrific purity and a hard-to-resist personality. I don't see any reason to delay gratification and would drink bottles over the coming 4-5 years. (JD)" (10/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers a pure, focused core of wild berry, raspberry, gravel, anise, dried herb and savory notes that are pleasantly tannic. The fruit pushes through in the end, finishing in ...Read More »

2013 Kosta Browne "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Previously 150) Back In Stock!
2013 Kosta Browne "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Previously 150)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a large vineyard (Gap's Crown is roughly 130 acres), the 2013 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard comes from a smaller 37-acre parcel owned by Kosta Browne, which lies at an elevation of 1,000 feet above sea level. Harvest all towards the end of September and aged 16 months in 51% new French oak, it has a slightly darker slant in its wild strawberry, black raspberry, spice and sappy flower stem-like aromas and flavors. Elegant, seamless and downright pretty, it grows on you with time in the glass and is a gorgeous Pinot Noir to drink over the coming dec ...Read More »

2006 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2006 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 was made from 32% Bancroft Ranch, 24% Steinhauer Ranch, 19% St. Helena Home Vineyard, with smaller amounts from Rancho del Oso, Chabot Vineyard, Marston Ranch and Lampyridae. A big heat wave in July was the salient weather factor in this vintage. The harvest began early and continued for five weeks. Abundant smoke, chocolate, espresso roast, cassis and mocha characteristics are found in this full-bodied, powerful, layered Cabernet. Although not quite as seamless as the nearly perfect 2005 Private Reserve, it is a big, dense beauty from a somewha ...Read More »

1997 Beringer "St. Helena Home Vineyard, Limited Release" Cabernet Sauvignon (Etched Bottle)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Home Vineyard offers copious quantities of blackberry/cassis fruit, in addition to tannin and structure. Spicy, with outstanding ripeness, a big, chewy mid-section, and intriguing roasted coffee and black currant flavors, this will be a large-scaled Cabernet to drink during its first 15 years of life. (RP)" (12/2000) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Explosive aromas of plum syrup, currant and tar. Large-scaled, sweet and mouthfilling, with lovely inner-mouth flavors of currant, leather and spice cake. Not yet revealing its full complex ...Read More »

2007 Williams Selyem "Allen Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "It’s dry and tough, with a resistance to the richness. Yet the core of flavor is enormous. Shows concentrated, flashy flavors of cherry marmalade, raspberry, orange blossom, cola, licorice, rose tea and spices that go on and on and continue to develop in the glass. The texture is pure silk and satin. *Cellar Selection*" (2/2010) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Intensely perfumed bouquet of raspberry, potpourri, Asian spices and sassafras. Impressively pure red fruit flavors are underscored by zesty mineral and sweet floral pastille nuances, with fine-grained tannins adding gr ...Read More »

2015 Château de Vaudieu Châteauneuf-du-Pape Back In Stock!
2015 Château de Vaudieu Châteauneuf-du-Pape

94 points Wine Spectator: "Richly layered, with hedonistic fig, boysenberry and raspberry confiture flavors that roll over each other while mouthwatering anise, fruitcake and black tea notes chase from behind. Shows loads of heft but remains driven by fresh, deeply inlaid acidity that pulls everything together on the finish. A flashy style and impossible to resist. Best from 2020 through 2040. (JM)" (7/2017) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape is a great example of the polish and elegance of the estate.
