2008 Cain "Concept-The Benchlands" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $100)

Jancis Robinson: "Quite a departure from the fruit-centric Napa norm. Roasted coffee, a tiny bit of herbal character. Savoury and structural. Good restraint within an extrovert idiom. (RH)" (2/2013) Wine Spectator: "Shows a meaty, peppery side of Cabernet, rich and extracted, offering dried dark berry and fresh-turned earth. A solid effort with chewy, leathery tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020. (JL)" (11/2012) K&L Notes: Cain "Concept" is vinified exactly like their signature bottling, Cain "Five". It is sourced from the eastern and western "b... Read More »

2008 Rudius Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) Back In Stock!
2008 Rudius Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

91 points Wine Spectator: "Serves up a generous mix of fleshy blueberry, plum and black cherry fruit that's deceptively complex and subtle. Full-bodied and impressive for its early-drinking allure. Fine-grained tannins provide nice traction. Drink now through 2021." (11/2011) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red-ruby. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, plum, licorice, spicecake and dark chocolate, plus hints of cola and loam. Supple and concentrated, with slightly high-toned flavors of plum, currant, cedar and brown spices. Doesn't yet deliver the complexity promised by the nose but there's no shortage of fl ...Read More »

2008 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby. Lovely lift and purity to the aromas of cassis, violet and bitter chocolate. Juicy, vibrant and intense; less dense than the 2007 but more perfumed in the mid-palate. Very fine-grained wine, finishing long and aromatic, with firm tannic bite and a late note of bitter chocolate. 'Two thousand eight was an impossible year to make 15% wines with a 4.0 pH in Napa Valley,' said Bo Barrett, adding that 'it's more fun to be working in the classical world. In 2008, there's less jam to block the terroir and minerality of the vineyard. Due to all t ...Read More »

2008 Melka "Métisse - Jumping Goat Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Supple in texture and expansive on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022." (8/2011) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Metisse Cabernet Sauvignon Jumping Goat Vineyard is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot and 7% Merlot aged in French oak, of which 85% was new.

2008 Drinkward Peschon "Entre Deux Mères" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Entre Deux Meres wraps around the palate with serious depth and power. Plums, mocha, espresso and spices all jump from the glass in this sexy, voluptuous wine. Round, sweet and inviting, the 2008 Entre Deux Meres captures the best qualities of the year. Although not super-complex, the 2008 is flat out delicious and incredibly appealing. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. (AG)" (12/2012) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Moderately saturated ruby-red. Enticing aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate, cocoa powder, mint and spices.

2008 Agharta "Farella Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Agharta Wines is the underground effort by winemaker Pax Mahle, who has reached the spotlight with his eponymous label as well as his Wind Gap brand. He explains: "Agharta was a recording by Miles Davis captured the same day he recorded Pangea, two of my favorite pieces of live modern jazz. While Pangea got the attention of the masses, it was known by the intelligentsia that Agharta was the superior piece. Years of being an underground sensation only heard by the lucky few, Miles named the underground recording Agharta, after the supposed underground soc... Read More »

2008 Coho "Headwaters" Napa Valley Red Blend

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The intriguing 2008 Headwaters Proprietary Red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by attractive notes of red currants, licorice and spice. Medium to full-bodied with supple tannins as well as lots of personality and character, this serious red can be consumed over the next 7-8 years." (12/2010) Wine Spectator: "Marked by complex dried dark berry fruit, this shows cedar, sandalwood, mineral and dried herb character. Full-bodied and elegant, making it easy to enjoy now.

2008 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

95 points Vinous: "Mocha, espresso, rosemary, lavender, plums and licorice emerge from the 2008 Opus One. Tasted from magnum, the 2008 is beautifully expressive. The firm tannins need more time to soften, but there is a lot to like in the 2008. Today the 2008 is showing beautifully. In magnum, the 2008 can be enjoyed today or cellared up to another 20 years or so. If opened young, the 2008 needs a few hours of air to soften. The bright, floral, spiced finish suggests a long life ahead. (AG)" (11/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "Fabulous roses, currants and dark berries on the nose that go to currants ...Read More »

2008 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a big wine loaded with black fruit, cedar, licorice, grilled herbs and tar. Layers of flavor build effortlessly to the muscular, virile finish. Despite its size, the 2008 Reserve maintains elements of classicism that serve to balance some of the wine’s more extroverted leanings. The wine impresses for its depth, expressive inner perfume and beautifully integrated tannins. It is a showstopper from Mondavi. The 2008 Reserve is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2013-20 ...Read More »

2008 Quintessa Rutherford Bordeaux Blend
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Quintessa Rutherford Bordeaux Blend (93CG). Connoisseurs Guide: "There is no big burst of fruit or towering wave of sweet oak to make this one an immediate turner of heads, but there is a real sense of sophistication at work here with plenty of depth and layering right from the start. The wine is at once both slightly supple and fairly firm in feel, and its vitality is hard to ignore. It teases with touches of toast and dusty earth spice while hewing to a very long line of optimally ripened currants, and it has all the right pieces in all the right places to grow famously for ten years or more. *Two Stars*" (12/2011)

2008 Terra Valentine "Wurtele Vineyard" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* So extracted in fruit and oak now, it’s almost rude, with the blackberry, currant, cassis liqueur and sweet toast flavors swamping the palate. There’s no doubting its Napa ripeness, or how smooth and refined the tannins are. The question is whether the power eventually will mellow with age. Although this isn’t the winery’s best Wurtele bottling, it should gain traction over the next eight years, and possibly longer." (12/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Tight and intense, this red is marked by loamy earth, dried berry, roasted herb and cedar notes. A very Bordeaux ...Read More »

2008 Robert Craig Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a civilized wine from that high-elevation appellation. Plum, anise, pepper, and wild mountain fruits are present in the moderately intense bouquet. In the mouth, this medium-bodied wine displays good fruit, elegance, and a savory quality, with nothing out of place. Impressively pure and nicely textured, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99JS, 96WS, 94VN, 93RP). James Suckling: "Like listening to cool mellow rock 'n' roll. Extraordinary aromas of violets and dark fruits such as blueberries and currants. I can't get over the aromas here. Then it goes to minerals with just a hint of bay leaf. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins with a beautiful softness and beautifulness. I love the balance and harmony to this with bright acidity. I would drink this before the 2007. Just under 1,000 cases of 12 but all sold in threes. Reminds me of Leoville Las Cases but with Napa brightness. Enjoy or hold for a long time." (06/2011)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Mernet Reserve Proprietary Red (350 cases produced) is composed of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. I’ve never liked the name that much, but I sure love the wine. Another prodigious effort from Keenan, it boasts an inky/purple color as well as a sweet nose filled with blackberry, black currant and cherry fruit intermixed with mocha and chocolate. Full-bodied and rich with an enticing suppleness as well as admirable length and texture, it should drink well for 15 or more years.

2008 Staglin "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Connoisseurs Guide: "The argument that wines with high ripeness lose their varietal and place-driven character is undone by Staglin year in and year out with its keenly focused aroma and flavors of currant, loam and cola augmented but never dominated by the caramelly richness of fancy oak barrels. Full on the palate, supple and somewhat fleshy, the wine is impeccably balanced and very polished at first glance. Yet, that polish only serves to sequester the solid layer of tannin that sits in the background and will keep things in fine fettle for a decade."

Juicy and penetrating in the mouth, with terrific verve and a brisk acid impression to the flavors of cranberry, cassis, bitter chocolate and licorice. Almost too much acid here for me.

Still young and unformed, it exhibits phenomenal richness and equilibrium as well as a finish that lasts nearly a minute. Its dense plum/purple color is accompanied by notions of black fruits, forest floor, truffles and spring flowers. It should age for 25-30+ years.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Robert Foley Napa Valley Claret (96RP, 92JS, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Claret (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has that ethereal nose of spring flowers, boysenberry, blueberry, black currant, and spice. Following that seductive aromatic display, Foley’s brilliance is again exhibited in the mouthfeel of this seamless wine, which has full-bodied flavors, no hard edges, gorgeous layers of fruit, and loads of complexity already, but is still a youthful wine with its best days ahead of it. This is brilliant winemaking, as some of us have come to expect from Bob Foley, and it should age well for 15-20 years. (RP)" (12/2010)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Cemetery, from a well-known parcel of vines planted near a graveyard (with a portrait on the label that resembles me after two weeks of 12-14 hour days spent tasting), exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with classic aromas of creme de cassis intermixed with floral undertones. With sweet fruit as well as impressive balance, this is a wine of considerable flavor authority, integrity and richness. Given its forward, precocious style, it should drink well for 10-15 years.
