2007 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points James Suckling: "A wine with lovely restraint with plums, blueberries and hints of tobacco. Earthy. Full and silky and long. Lovely length. Juicy and delicious. Needs a year or two to come together." (4/2012) 92 points Vinous: "Still a young wine, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Trailside Vineyard is just beginning to show the first signs of aromatic nuance. Dark red cherry, plums, mocha and spices round out this nicely layered Cabernet. Racy, powerful and voluptuous, but with enough tannic backbone and structure to drink well for a number of years, the 2007 Trailside is showing quite well today ...Read More »

1994 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine Spectator: "A real mouthful of Cabernet any way you taste it. Bold, ripe, rich and flavorful, with complex layers of currant, black cherry and plum flavors nicely accented with cedary oak. Terrific now, best around 1999. From a producer with a superb track record with Cabernet. (JL)" (5/1997) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cabernet is king at Caymus. During the decade of the nineties, there has been a succession of sumptuous, rich, concentrated, lavishly-wooded, cassis-flavored Caymus Cabernet Sauvignons.

2002 Quilceda Creek Washington Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $230)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Almost as good as the 2003, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc that spent 22 months in 100% new French oak. Its youthful purple/ruby color is followed by gorgeously complex and intense aromas of wild herbs, exotic spices, caramelized beef, licorice and layers of sweet black fruits and creamy black cherry-like nuances. Full-bodied, rich and incredibly youthful, it opens up beautifully in the glass and is a total thrill ride of a Washington State Cabernet. I’d enjoy bottles over the coming deca ...Read More »

The intensely flavorful wines from Rutherford's Trailside Vineyard have been part of the Heitz range since 1989.

According to the winery: "From first sip to glorious finish, the 2004 Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of this superb vintage.

2005 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Spectator: "This fine new release, with some bottle age, shows signs of subtle maturity. Aromas of mocha, cedar, dried currant and spice box follow through to a full body, This is well-built, with fine balance and good length. (Web-2011)" K&L Notes: In the early 1980s, the Heitz Family acquired a marvelous Rutherford vineyard bordered on one side by the Silverado Trail and nudged on the other by the Conn Creek. Thus the Trailside Vineyard was born. Aged for three-and-a-half years in a combination of American and French Limousin oak, the 2005 is elegantly perfumed to complement a... Read More »

Grapes are from the sources normally used for the Special Selection, which was not made in '96."

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.

1998 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Vinous: "Ironically, the 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain from a much weaker vintage than 1997 on paper, is a much more interesting wine. Huge and explosive on the palate, the 1998 boasts serious depth and concentration. Iron, smoke, anise and dark red/blackish fruit all swirl around in the glass in a striking, nuanced Cabernet that is among the wines of the year in Napa Valley. If there is a dark horse in this tasting, the 1998 is it. Beautiful.

2006 Cain "Five" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend

Jancis Robinson: "Dark purplish crimson. Appealing juicy fruit with a little overlay of walnuts on the nose. Some personality and a fruity core. Quite dusty and full blooded with slightly rustic tannins. Distinctive! I like the fact that the winemaker has not been afraid of tannin. Quite burly rather than super smooth. Out of the mould – so therefore mountain fruit..? I just wonder whether the fruit won’t fade a little bit too early for the tannins? Dry finish. But this is serious artisanal wine.

1985 Duckhorn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Founded by Dan and Margaret Duckhorn in 1976, Duckhorn Vineyards has been crafting classic Bordeaux varietals from the Napa Valley for over 30 years. Famed for their Merlot wines, somehow the Duckhorns managed to sneak their Cabernet Sauvignon wines out the door without anyone noticing. A combination of estate and purchased fruit from Napa Valley allowed Dan and Margaret to demonstrate the blending skills they picked up in Bordeaux.

Delicious from start to finish, with a long, fruity aftertaste and fine-grained tannins. (JL)" (12/2004) 92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "There are arguments to be made that this inviting young wine is a little too forward and too reliant on oak, but for all of its debt to sweet, creamy spice, it is solidly fruity at its heart and has the extract good Cabernet Sauvignon needs.

1998 Spottswoode Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "1998 produced a smaller crop (4,300 cases), but was an identical blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wine, like the 1997, was made at the Napa Wine Company, right before the Spottswoode Winery was completed. It exhibited no signs of greenness, despite the fact that it was a cool year with most of the heat coming at the end of the season.

Packed with blackberry, cassis and smoky, new oak flavors, it shows a firm structure of tannins and acidity. Beautiful now with a grilled steak, and should age well for at least a decade." (12/2009) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Profile (82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) is a beauty. The sweet, ripe tannins nicely frame this large-scaled, full-bodied wine. Its o ...Read More »

1994 Whitehall Lane "Morisoli Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "Young, dark and concentrated, with sharply focused currant, black cherry, plum and spicy flavors, smooth, supple tannins and a long, rich aftertaste. Tempting now, but worthy of cellaring, too. Best after 2002." (9/1997) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The outstanding 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Morisoli Vineyard is not quite ready for prime time drinking. It possesses a healthy dark ruby/purple color, enticing, sweet cassis, cedar, and, found in St.-Julien and Pauillac offerings. The wine needs another 2-3 years of cellaring, but it should evolve gracefully for 10-15 years. It is a ...Read More »

1992 Arrowood Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 1995, Highly Recommended* A big, ripe and well oaked style, packs in lots of ripe plum and black cherry-laced fruit that runs deep and complex, finishing with smooth tannins and fine length. Finishes with a touch of herb and tobacco. Best after 1997." (11/1995) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Arrowood's 1992 Cabernet Sauvignon, like his other red wines, is bottled without fining or filtration. It exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, an excellent nose of cassis and spicy wood, as well as a medium to full-bodied finish with gobs of supple, ripe fruit. It should drink well f ...Read More »

1985 Inglenook "Reserve Cask" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Spectator: "*Cellar Selection* Smooth and polished, with intense cherry, currant, mint and herb aromas and flavors framed by hints of cedar. A bit tannic, but balanced, and almost elegant right through the finish. A youthful wine that can use until 1996 or '97 to buff the edges." (2/1991) K&L Notes: 95 points James Laube: "Beautifully balanced, with layers of rich, elegant, concentrated plum, cherry, currant and spice flavors supported by firm, lean yet structured tannins. Promises to be long-lived Cabernet in the finest Cask tradition. Fruit echoes on the finish. Impeccable ba... Read More »
