2013 Gundlach Bundschu "Mountain Cuvée" Sonoma County Red Blend

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This full-bodied beauty traffics in cigar, tar and chocolate, expressing a rich, robust and smoky world of goodness. With a velvety texture, it continues to impress beyond the first sip, offering both memorable length and breadth. It blends together 80% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Malbec." (2/2017) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The outstanding 2013 Mountain Cuvée Proprietary Red, which is 80.4% Merlot, 17.4% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, was aged ten months in a combination of new and used oak. The good news is that there were 16,000+ cases of this outstanding wine. ...Read More »

2014 Louis M. Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2014 Louis M. Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the best values in Cabernet Sauvignon anywhere in the world remains Louis Martini’s Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County (89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and the rest Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc and other varieties) is just a beautiful wine. Dense ruby/purple with classic tobacco leaf, blackcurrant, loamy soil notes and a touch of wood spice, this wine (aged 16 months in French and American oak) has relatively modest alcohol for Cabernets these days (13.5%), and what’s even more remarkable is that there are 408,0 ...Read More »

2013 Amapola Creek By Richard Arrowood Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2013 Amapola Creek By Richard Arrowood Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Arrowood deserves a lot more credit than he often gets for his Cabernet Sauvignons, which are long-lived. Some of the early Château St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignons have stood the test of time, and those made under the Arrowood label, especially his Reserves, are 30+ year wines at the minimum. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, is brilliant. Notes of graphite, crème de cassis, blueberry and blackberry along with some espresso are all present in this dense, full-bodied wine with great fruit, beautiful puri ...Read More »

2012 Lyeth Sonoma County Meritage

Wine & Spirits: "A velvety blend based on Merlot, this is simple but clean, its strawberry-red fruit lifted, the structure easy rather than gripping. It’s light enough for roast chicken." (8/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This wine has a foundation of 57% Merlot, followed by almost equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, then smaller percents of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Perfumed, it expresses itself in tight, chewy tannins before revealing cedar, pencil shavings and cranberry in a medium-bodied package.

(6/2016) Wine Enthusiast: "This soft, simple wine, with small touches of Malbec and Petit Verdot, delivers sizable tannin atop notable acidity. Tart red currant and cherry meet cedar and a taste of toffee, allowing for a pleasantness on the palate that’s rich and ripe."

2014 Decoy Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $24.00)

Blended with 10% Merlot, it finds a jolt of richness on the finish, a showcase for notions of chocolate, cherry and blackberry." (2/2017) K&L Notes: About the producer: "Since the inaugural vintage of our Decoy Napa Valley Red Wine almost a quarter century ago, Decoy has taken an important place in the Duckhorn Wine Company family of wines.

Full-bodied with velvety tannins, and impressive concentration, texture and length, this superb Cabernet can be drunk early in life because of its velvety opulence or cellared for two decades.

2012 Louis M. Martini "Monte Rosso Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A 15- to 20-year wine in terms of its aging potential is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Rosso Vineyard. A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot, aged 27 months in a combination of French and American oak, the wine is dense, full-bodied, with notes of dusty, loamy soil interwoven with crème de cassis, blackberry, toasty oak and hints of chocolate and espresso. This is another full-throttle effort (15.2% natural alcohol), richly layered, with moderate tannin. It is accessible now but capable of lasting 25 or more years. (RP)" (10/2015)

This is certainly a major sleeper of the vintage and one of the more attractively priced world-class Cabernet Sauvignons coming out of California’s North Coast in this miraculous vintage for Bordeaux varietals.

2012 Calluna "Cuvée CVC" Chalk Hill Bordeaux Blend

95 points Wine & Spirits: "David Jeffrey’s estate, in the hills east of the Russian River Valley, tends to give a cool, taut expression of the Bordelaise grapes, thanks to maritime influence and the vineyard’s sandstone and shale-based soils. This Merlot-based blend includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec; in 2012, the wine’s flavors are vigorous and cohesive, with hints of black plum and mint, though the overall impression is primarily mineral, the refreshing glints of fruit completely tied to the structure.

2013 Arrowood Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Vinous: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley), all Knights Valley fruit in this vintage, is superb. Raspberry jam, spice, scorched earth, rose petal, cloves and new leather are some of the signatures. Knights Valley is often noted for Graves-like sense of gravel-infused minerality, naturally allied to a California expression of fruit. That is exactly what readers will find in the 2013.

1997 Arrowood "Réserve Spéciale" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Wine Spectator: "An ideal combo of youth and age, this is lush and rich, but still has backbone and muscle." (2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale was even better. Here’s a wine coming up on 20 years of age in another 18 months, and it is still remarkably young and vigorous. Dense purple, with beautifully sweet crème de cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with incense, graphite, and a touch of oak, this was a great year for North Coast varietals, and this wine is lavishly rich, with a multi-dimensional texture and a super-intense, full-bodied finish – ju ...Read More »

2012 Anakota "Helena Dakota" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Even as impressive, but showing more truffles, charcoal, graphite and camphor, along with blackberry and cassis, is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota (1,017 cases). This wine shows even more fruit than its sibling and is bigger, bolder and slightly broader across the palate.

It has an extraordinary nose of almost super-concentrated essence of cherries and blackberries, along with some graphite and licorice. There is a touch of camphor in this multidimensional, world-class wine that is another spectacular offering from Sebastiani. The finish must last for close to a minute.

Coming on the heels of two rather tough years, this vintage proved to be spectacular. The grapes on our estate enjoyed a long hang time with warm days and cool nights that led to a mid October pick.

Stately and brooding, Wirth's black-and-white vineyard landscape reflects the intense, age-worthy wine inside. Sourced mainly from Kenwood's Carriger and Lone Pine estate vineyards, the Cabernet is blended with a bit of Merlot and Petit Verdot to add depth, then aged for 26 months in French oak barrels.

2005 Vérité "La Joie" Sonoma Red
Bid on this bottle of 2005 Vérité "La Joie" Sonoma Red (100RP, 95VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The myth perpetrated by Old World wine proponents is that California wines don’t age. Those critics need to taste Verité, because these wines are aging far slower than I imagined. The 2005 La Joie (67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec) tips the scales at 14.7% alcohol. It received the same 18 months in 100% new oak. It is interesting that Pierre Seillan said that he thought the high-elevation vineyards of Sonoma that go into Verité (self-serving, os course) are his greatest sites in the world for Bordeaux varietals. But remember – he’s from Bordeaux! This multidimensional wine, which enjoyed a 4-5 day cool, pre-fermentation maceration, has a provocative bouquet of blackberry, cassis, new saddle leather, Christmas fruitcake, graphite and high-quality unsmoked cigar tobacco.

2009 Morlet Family "Mon Chevalier" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Mon Chevalier, from Knights Valley, is powerful, rich and imposing. A huge, muscular wine, the 2009 is endowed with deep, resonant layers of dark red cherries, plums, cloves, and crushed rocks. The Knights Valley tannins are present, but masterfully integrated.

2010 Dry Creek Vineyards "The Mariner" Dry Creek Valley Meritage (1.5L)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a lovely wine, based on Cabernet Sauvignon, but comprised of all five classic Bordeaux varieties. It's smooth in tannins and soft in acidity, with luxurious black cherry, blueberry, cassis, plum and new oak flavors. Drink now-2018." (3/2014) Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Richness rather than specific fruit is the principal message of this fairly open and accessible wine, although it wears its high percentage of Merlot on its tactile sleeve. It is nicely rounded and slightly juicy to start and then firms as modest tannins take hold, yet it does not dry out and remains ...Read More »
