2013 Chateau Buena Vista Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A new offering from the Sonoma-based producer meant to recall the estate’s original founding in the Napa Valley, this wine sources from across that appellation and impresses right away in its succulent and soft approach to the variety. With a backbone of cassis and vanilla, it’s expansive and lengthy, velvety in texture and very satisfying." (2/2017) K&L Notes: From one of California's most historic wineries, founded in 1857, this is a super value in California Cabernet!

2008 Meyer Family "Spitfire" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2008 Meyer Family "Spitfire" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (90WE). This is a new wine for Meyer Family Cellars, from a recently acquired vineyard site next door to Bonny's Vineyard in Oakville that they've been eyeing for 20 years. Well, we're glad they finally bought it, because this small production wine (really small, just 98 cases) is delish. Aged for 24 months in half new and half used American oak barrels, those characteristics are the most intense on the nose, but the Asian spice, vanilla and dill notes give way to rich plum fruit that carries over to the palate, complemented by leather and smoke flavors. Silky smooth, this is powerful enough to stand up to grilled ribeye, and complex enough to pair with more refined dishes too. 

This lot contains the following items:
2008 Meyer Family "Spitfire" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (qty: 4)

2000 Bacio Divino Napa Valley Red Blend

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Proprietary Red Wine (a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Sangiovese, and 11% Petite Sirah) is outstanding. An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a bouquet of charcoal, toasty oak, espresso roast, and black currants. This dense, rich, full-bodied, sweet wine possesses ripe tannin, low acidity, and a plump, layered, concentrated style. It is a hedonistically as well as intellectually pleasing effort to enjoy over the next 7-8 years. (RP)" (12/2003)

1995 White Cottage Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant for Howell Mountain, with ripe, complex currant, black cherry, mineral, sage and cedary oak flavors, picking up touches of clay and toasty oak. Forward and appealing now, this appears to be a midrange wine. Best from 1999 through 2005. 250 cases made." (11/1998)

2014 Snowden "The Ranch" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon the Ranch is blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This is a beauty with soft tannin giving it a silky, voluptuous texture. It possesses a dark ruby/purple color, plenty of black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit with tobacco leaf and unsmoked high-quality cigar tobacco. The overall impression is one of elegance, yet intensity. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. (RP)" (10/2016)
