2012 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
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 »

2014 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2014 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Caymus's "Special Selection" is the pride of the Wagner family. It's their flagship wine, is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage, and is not produced in years where the quality just doesn't meet Chuck Wagner's standards. The "Special Selection" is both approachable in its youth as well as in its maturity.

2013 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

96 points James Suckling: "** #39 in The Top 100 Reds of Napa Valley 2016** So much purple fruit here like blueberries as well as minerals and black pepper. Full body, firm and silky tannins. Tight and compressed style with great persistence. Better in 2020, but so gorgeous now."

2013 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
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 »

2011 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

94 points Vinous: "Savory herbs, menthol, smoke and licorice are some of the aromas that open up in the glass in the 2011 Dominus. This is a relatively immediate, expressive Dominus with plenty of near-term appeal. The style is open and succulent for the year, with lovely balance and poise. Crushed rose petals and dried herbs linger in the close. With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshes out nicely. In 2011 Dominus is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc...

There is just an extra gear in all of the wines, great acids, profound concentration and wonderful integrated tannin and massive concentration that should ensure an incredibly long life for all of the top efforts.

2013 Forman Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Today, the 2013 is dense, powerful and explosive, with fabulous energy and tons of sheer intensity. Graphite, smoke, tobacco and layers of dark-fleshed fruit all open up in the glass. This is the first vintage to incorporate a dollop of Malbec. The 2013 has just been bottled. I will not be surprised at all if it merits a higher rating at some point in the future.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "They appear to be immune to some of winedom’s less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time, and the result is a spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary offering. Its dense purple/black color is followed by copious quantities of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, silky tannins, a voluptuous texture and stunning purity as well as length. This full-bodied effort is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a tribute to this amazing family. It is so good now, why wait?

Bigger-boned and framed than many 2014s, with more structure, this is classic Oakville material, with an opaque purple color and a big, sweet kiss of graphite, blackcurrants, Christmas fruitcake and spice box.

This wine has always been noted by its blueberry component, touch of licorice and underbrush. This wine has all of that, medium to full body, beautiful acidity and loads of fruit.

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is not yet in bottle, may turn out to be nearly as good. It exhibits a full-bodied power as well as lots of black fruit, licorice, damp earth and spice characteristics. Textured and rich with sweeter tannin and more upfront appeal than the 2007, the long, impressive 2008 should age for 20-25 years. (RP)" (12/2010) 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 win ...Read More »

1988 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Vinous: "The 1988 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is one of the many highlights in this tasting. Initially quite reticent, the 1988 turns positively explosive with time in the glass. What a pleasure it is to watch the 1988 develop over several hours. By the end of the night, the 1988 is positively electric. Smoke, black fruit and menthol inform the deep, powerful finish. (AG)" (2/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "To his credit, Randy Dunn could give a hoot about what writers or other professionals think about his wines. I don't believe a single thing has changed in the way he makes wine, a ...Read More »

2014 Peter Michael "Belle Côte" Knights Valley Chardonnay

95-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The oldest Chardonnay vineyard Peter Michael uses is Belle Côte. The 2014 Chardonnay Belle Côte, from old Wente clones of Chardonnay planted in 1990, shows notes of crème brûlée, orange marmalade, crushed rock and white peach. It has stunning richness, full-bodied intensity, and a long, long finish. There's nothing that this winery does that is not admirable. Consider that they work with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, they produce world-class wines from all of these varietals, and ...Read More »

2015 Aubert "Sugar Shack Estate" Napa Valley Chardonnay

97-99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From his only vineyard in Napa, the 2015 Chardonnay Sugar Shack is a hedonist’s delight. Fragrant, exotic notes of mango, orange marmalade, nectarine and pineapple soar from the glass of this full-bodied, beautifully fruited Chardonnay that shows not a trace of oak, has great acidity, and an almost vibrant energy-driven style that is remarkable. This is always one of my favorite cuvées to taste, and I have been a buyer every year that he’s been producing it. Again, this sees 100% new oak, but you would never know it. (RP)" (10/2016) 97 points James Suckling: "Precise and beautiful a ...Read More »

2014 Daou "Soul of A Lion" Adelaida District Cabernet Sauvignon

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It shows how good the vintage was for this estate and is a broad, deep, rich and layered blend that’s brought up all in new French oak. Its inky purple color is followed by terrific notes of plums, creme de cassis, garrigue and exotic flowers, and it hits the palate with no hard edges, gorgeous purity and polished tannin all suggesting it will evolve gracefully.”" (8/2016) 93-94 points Vinous: "Inky purple. A heady, impressively complex bouquet evokes ripe dark fruits, sandalwood, vanilla and floral pastilles, and a smoky nuance builds in the glass. Palate-coating black and blu ...Read More »

2003 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* One of the first, if not the first, of the proprietarily named Napa Bordeaux blends, Phelps Insignia has been one of California’s greatest Cabs for decades. This is their 30th anniversary bottling, and it’s worthy of the tradition. Ultrarich and smooth, with a mouthfeel that’s pure velvet, it’s fairly thick in tannins now, suggesting cellaring. But it’s huge in blackberry, dark unsweetened chocolate and spicy plum fruit, and will easily hold for a very long time." (3/2007) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 has performed well in recent tasting, showing a dense pu ...Read More »

1999 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Vinous: "The tasting ends on a high note, as the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is deeply expressive, despite its obvious youth. Here it is the wine's sense of energy that stands out most. Vivid, nuanced and structured, the 1999 is a wine to cellar for another 5-10 years at a minimum to allow the flavors to flesh out. Readers lucky enough to own the 1999 who can wait a few years will be very happy. (AG)" (2/2014) 90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dunn's normal policy is to select the Napa Cabernet Sauvignon from his barrels right before bottling. Hence what I tasted was a trial blend of th ...Read More »

2009 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Vinous: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard is a relatively immediate Marthas, with a real feeling of mid-palate density and weight that is almost out of character for this estate. Sweet, silky tannins give the 2009 much of its succulence. Scents of mint, pine and eucalyptus wrap around the juicy, inviting finish. (AG)" (10/2015) Wine Spectator: "Shows notable herb, mint and bay leaf overtones, with a tight, dense core of dried currant and berry that is slow to open. This is very shut down for now, and should age for a long time. The flavors build on the finish. Drink no ...Read More »

2013 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Insignia (their 40th vintage) is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, and the rest Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. 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. There were 12,300 cases produced in 2013, and this vintage of Insignia is certainly going to turn out to be one of the great ones. The wine offers a stunning inky blue/purple color, a gorgeous nose of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, pen ink, graphit ...Read More »

2013 Sine Qua Non "Male" California Syrah

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Syrah Male is an elegant, seamless Syrah that exudes class in its creme de cassis, black raspberry, smoked meats, graphite and asphalt-laced bouquet. This is a blend of 80% Syrah, 7% Petite Sirah, 6% Mourvèdre, 3.5% Touriga National and 3.5% Viognier, fermented with 28% whole clusters and aged 25 months in 65% new French oak. It's full-bodied, beautifully layered, silky and seamless, with no hard edges and wonderful freshness in both the aromatics and palate. Give bottles 3-4 years and enjoy over the following 10-15.

2003 Kistler "Cuvée Catherine" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Pinot Noir Cuvee Catherine has a ruby/purple color, a big, ripe, framboise and currant fruit nose with some floral notes, forest floor, and a touch of new oak. The wine has great purity, medium to full body, and a long finish with good acidity. (RP)" (2/2005) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Pungent aromas of black raspberry and pepper; less fruity today than the Kistler Vineyard example. Then denser and thicker in the mouth, if not quite as sharply delineated as the Kistler Vineyard bottling. Offers a very pure flavor of dark raspberry and a chewy impression of ex ...Read More »
