2013 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2013 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2016, Collectibles* Zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins leading to a long, powerful and refined aftertaste that keeps reverberating while maintaining a strong personality. (JL)" (7/2016) 92 points James Suckling: "The full-throttle character is here as expected with lots of ripe fruit and toasted oak. Sage and mint. Silky tannins; the ripe fruit dominates. But it shows form and juiciness." (5/2016)

2013 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Vinous: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a towering majestic wine. Rich, powerful and yet massively tannic, the 2013 possesses a stunning combination of super-ripe fruit, bright acids and plenty of supporting structure. In the early going, the Howell Mountain is a bit reticent, especially next to the Trailer, but after several hours, the vibrancy of the Howell Mountain bottling dazzles. Dunn's Howell Mountain Cabernet is without question one of the wines of the great 2013 vintage. Randy and Mike Dunn's 2013s are off the charts. The Napa Valley Cab ...Read More »

2012 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

"Blue Chip." That is always one of the phrases I use when talking about the Silver Oak Napa Valley bottling. Year after year Silver Oak produces some of the most reliably delicious wine that Napa has to offer. It might not be most "culty," nor the highest rated on someone's 100 point scale but it is always exactly what you know it to be: rich, powerful, heavily fruited, laced with spicy oak and full of structure but still enjoyable upon release. Perfect for gifts, important client meetings, special dinners and a great mid-term wine for any smart collecto... Read More »

Full-bodied, yet reserved, even austere, with chewy and powerful tannins that remain polished and refined. The flavors are more umami and savory. Then there's forest fruits and red orange undertones. It lasts for minutes. A wine to age for a lifetime. It's an experience to taste this. A new classic showing its history and tradition as a source of the greatest wines ever from Napa. A wine to always enjoy." (1/2016) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Do ...Read More »

This wine is aged 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels, and the production can vary from just over 10,000 cases to nearly 20,000 cases in a very abundant vintage.

Beautiful blackcurrant, floral-infused fruit jumps from the glass of this dense ruby/purple wine. There are some loamy underpinnings of soil, but the wine is medium to full-bodied, beautifully fruited, with great texture, and terrific purity and personality.

2010 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Vinous: "Not surprisingly, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard is the least expressive of these wines. At the same time, so much of its appeal is in its tightly-coiled energy and tension. Cherry pit, smoke, blood orange, mint and spice open up with time in the glass, but the 2010 is clearly built for cellaring. The wine's brightness and focus are compelling, but the 2010 needs time.

It’s a big wine for Stags Leap (15.4% alcohol), but gorgeously pure, with everything well-knit into a sensational equilibrium. This is only a baby, but promises to hit its peak in 7-10 years and last 25-30. 95+ Points (RP)" (12/2015) 93 points James Suckling: "So much stone, dried mushroom, wet earth, forest flower and light prune aromas follow through to a rich palate. Full, firm and intense." (1/2016) 93 points Vinous: "Odette's 2013 Caber ...Read More »

97 points James Suckling: "*#30 in The Top 100 Reds of Napa Valley 2016* Subtle aromas of crushed berries and tile. Mushrooms. Almost dusty. Full to medium body, powdery tannins and mouthfeel.

2014 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

With its deep gravelly loam soil, Far Niente's Martin Stelling Vineyard is the cornerstone of their flagship Oakville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasting notes from the winery: "The 2014 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon opens with beautifully lifted spice and black fruit aromatics—clove, anise, black cherry and blackberry—layered with a hint of rich oak. A round, supple entry leads to a silky, smooth midpalate. Cassis, clove, and toasted oak complement the black and red fruit flavors. Fine-grained, age-worthy tannins provide structure to the dark, juicy fini... Read More »

2012 Peter Michael "Ma Belle-Fille" Knights Valley Chardonnay

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille reveals notes of citrus blossom, Mandarin oranges, tangerine oil, white peach, pineapple and a wet rock-like minerality. This full-bodied, opulent, exotic, stunningly classic Chardonnay should drink well for a decade or more." (12/2014) 98 points James Suckling: "A denser, more phenolic character with green apple, lemon, lime, mango and papaya. Full body with intense fruit and center palate, and a long, long finish. Why drink Laguiche Montrachet? Drink or hold." (10/2014) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Captivating, sleek, elegant and graceful, this is rich without weight, offering ...Read More »

2013 Peter Michael "Ma Belle-Fille" Knights Valley Chardonnay

98 points James Suckling: "This very intense and creamy with light pie crust, apricot, lemon rind and peach pie. Full body and round texture from the phenolics. Very long. Some herb and iodine on the finish. Sneaks up on you! Wow." (6/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille offers plenty of wet rocks, caramelized citrus, and again the apple blossom component -- or is it apple butter? There is a lemon meringue character as well, not to mention brioche. It is definitely different than the other Chardonnays, and it certainly seems as though the Calera clone component comes across very ...Read More »

2014 Tor Kenward "Cimarossa Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine Spectator: "Combines power, authority and grace, with full-throttle Cabernet flavors built around wild berry, blackberry, currant, cedar, tobacco and licorice notes. This is defined by elegance, finesse and integrated tannins. Best from 2018 through 2030." (2/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another high-elevation site for Tor Kenward is his 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Cimarossa Vineyard from a steep vineyard planted at a 2,100-foot elevation on Howell Mountain. This vineyard is often used in the Beringer Private Reserve program. This wine is one of the more backward of the 2014s, with high tannin, ...Read More »

2011 Aubert "Lauren Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Aubert "Lauren Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (95RP, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aubert’s 2011 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard flows across the palate with hints of butter, marzipan, spices, nectarines and dried apricots. Rich, voluptuous and creamy, the 2011 is another of the more overt wines in this range. Still, there is more than enough underlying minerality to balance the fruit. The old Wente and Montrachet clones work well here, but the vines are only 12 years old, which suggests the best is still very much in the future. (AG)" (04/2013)

2013 Araujo "Altagracia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points James Suckling: "Glorious aromas, like walking into a flower shop, from roses to lilacs. Lots of dark fruit too. Then goes to slate and dark mushroom. Full body, super refined tannins and refresh and ultra-clean finish. A thoroughly balanced and refined wine." (1/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 2013 Proprietary Red Altagracia, the blend is slightly different, at 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. One of the finest Altagracias I’ve tasted to date, the color is saturated ruby/purple, much darker than the 2012 and the wine slightly less fragrant and m ...Read More »

2007 Colgin "IX Estate" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The staggeringly rich, complex, harmonious, impeccably well-balanced 2007 IX Proprietary Red Estate (1,400 case produced) exhibits aromas of spring flowers, cedarwood, Asian spices, licorice, blueberries, and blackberries. A distinct liqueur of minerals buttresses the full-bodied, massive concentration, giving an overall impression of elegance, purity, and harmony. This is another seamless tour de force in winemaking. It should drink well for 25 or more years. (RP)" (12/2009) 97 points James Suckling: "Beautiful aromas of flowers, currants, violets, and mint. The palate is incredibl ...Read More »

2012 Peter Michael "Le Caprice" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

98 points James Suckling: "The purity of fruit here is impressive, with raspberry, iodine and hints of mussel shell. Créme de framboise. Full body with firm, silky tannins and a long finish. The aromatics are crazy here. Great tannin structure. The finish comes out of nowhere with aniseed." (10/2014) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lusher, more expansive and savory, the 2012 Pinot Noir La Caprice (1,485 cases) possesses stunning richness, and is more approachable and exuberant than the 2013 with the vintage’s boisterousness and heady, intense fruit well-displayed.

2013 Pine Ridge "Fortis" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The other 2013 offered in my tasting was the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortis, which is a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 3% Merlot. An absolutely spectacular offering from Pine Ridge and one of their all-time great Cabernet Sauvignons, this prodigious blend has an inky purple color to the rim and a gorgeous nose of charcoal, asphalt, graphite, blueberry, blackberry and cassis, while not a trace of oak seems to make it through. The wine is large-scaled, massively extracted, but not without balance. It offers layers and layers of fruit, super ...Read More »
