2012 Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon New! Top Pick!
2012 Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The stunning 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a 30-year wine. Loads of crème de cassis, blackberry liqueur, licorice, incense and oak jump from the glass of this huge, massive, concentrated and ripe wine that reminds me of some of the early vintages from Michael Dunn’s father, Randy, particularly the 1982 and 1984. This is a beauty of great intensity and purity that should age effortlessly for 25-30+ years. If you can find it, it will be certainly worth having, as it flirts with perfection. Mike Dunn seems to be far more flexible than his fath ...Read More »

Of the 2013 DuMol Russian River Valley Chardonnay,Connoisseurs Guide writes: "Neatly matched elements of Meyer lemons, ripe apples, crème caramel and toast are teamed in the rich, well-composed aromas and iterated again in the deep and very complete flavors of this wonderfully expressive Chardonnay. The wine is at once slightly viscous, fairly mouthfilling and very energetic, and, while never impressing as a powerhouse, its potent but polished flavors last and last. It will make ideal drinking with salmon in sauce, and it has more than enough weight and richness to complement pan-roasted duck breasts." (12/2015)

97 points James Suckling: "Amazing aromas of blueberry, blackberry, mineral and bark. Complex nose. Full body plus super integrated tannins with superb balance and depth. Coffee and chocolate too. Very long and mind-bending. A tribute to the vintage. Drink or hold. A long life ahead of it." (7/2015) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship wine of the estate in reds is their Insignia, which has been one of the great Bordeaux blends made in California since the debut vintage in 1974. It usually has 30+ years aging potential, even in lighter vintages, of which the 2012, 2013 and 2014 are decidedly not. The 2012 ...Read More »

2012 Robert Mondavi "To Kalon Vineyard - Reserve" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine Spectator: "An iron fist in a velvet glove, this wine begins with a supple, rich core of currant, black cherry, anise and sage, firming up with tannins from oak and grape. Glides along gracefully, never losing the core fruitiness, while the tannins and gravelly earth accents lend the flavors tension and traction. Drink now through 2029."

Better in 2020, but so gorgeous now." (1/2016) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Proprietary Red Blend (15.2% alcohol) shows gorgeously sweet tannins that involve a voluptuously textured, full-bodied, stunningly rich wine with loads of blue, black and red fruits.

One of the strongest efforts to date from this winery, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as abundant aromas of sweet white chocolate, acacia flowers, and black and red fruits, full-bodied opulence, velvety tannins, and enough acidity to provide freshness and focus.

2012 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing the great blending skills of Beringer’s winemaking team, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a winner. Having purchased Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well. The 1991, one of the great successes of that vintage, is still aging beautifully at nearly 25 years of age.

Bottled perfection, it is an extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon offering floral, blackcurrant, boysenberry and hints of oak, forest floor and graphite notes, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and an exuberance, freshness and delineation that are remarkable. This amazing effort is the quintessential Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon that is Napa Valley’s version of Château Margaux. The finish just won’t quit. Kudos to propriet ...Read More »

2012 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Cask 23" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23 appears to be the finest Cask 23 since the glory years of the mid-eighties. It boasts a dense purple color, complex notes of spice box, Christmas fruitcake, blackcurrant jam, mulberries and spring flowers, as well as a full-bodied, opulent personality. It is a profound example of this iconic wine that went through a period of mediocrity in the mid- to late-1990s prior to being sold. Drink now-2038. (RP)" (10/2014)

Five thousand cases were produced, a relatively modest amount from this large vineyard’s big crop. Christian Moueix told me that there was plenty of heat in 2012, but there were no excessive hot spells that can plague Napa Valley vintners during the growing season and harvest.

2012 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Vinous: "Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, new leather, tobacco, cloves and mocha meld together in the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. Rich, ample and textured, the 2012 is full of intensity. The contours are quite soft, though, which makes the 2012 unusually gentle and tamed for a young Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. The radiant, explosive finish alone is hugely appealing. In 2012, winemaker Sean Capiaux used all seven Bordeaux varieties in the blend.

2013 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2013 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is one of the most tannic Cabs Far Niente has produced in quite a while. It’s really not drinkable now, despite very complex flavors of blackberries, cherries, licorice, tobacco and plums, along with plenty of smoky new oak. Made with a few drops of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, which add perfume and flowers, it’s a wine that won’t come into its own for quite a while. Hold until 2013, at least, and it should provide interesting drinking for years after, in a proper cellar." (6/2010)

2012 Cardinale Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2012's final blend was 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Merlot with 94% new French oak used. Terroirists undoubtedly lament the fact that nine different vineyards and seven different appellations were utilized, but the resulting wine is prodigious.

2012 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard RBS, which is also from Clone 337 but from different blocks on the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, saw oak with 90% new Darnajou and 10% new Taransaud. This wine seems slightly more expansive, shares the black ruby/purple color with all of it siblings, and has a boatload of crème de cassis, incense, licorice, graphite and vanilla along with plenty of spice box and forest floor. This is a killer, full-bodied, super-duper, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 20 years. (RP)" (10/2014) 96 points Vinous: "The ...Read More »

2013 Aubert "UV Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The rich, prodigious, full-bodied 2013 Pinot Noir UV, made from the Calera and Vosne-Romanée clones, is a denser, richer wine offering abundant notes of blueberries, blackberries, forest floor and strong hints of Asian hoisin sauce, dark fruits and forest floor. There are approximately 1,000 cases of this sensational Pinot, which Mark Aubert decanted 12 hours in advance of my visit. There is not a trace of new oak in this wine, which spent 10 months in 100% new barrels. Like all the 2013 Pinot Noirs, it has a decade or more of aging potential."

2012 Paul Hobbs "Stagecoach Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard is dark, powerful and beguiling. Some of the more distinctly mineral, savory notes typical of this site lid in the background, yet there is plenty of underlying tannin to carry the fruit. This rich, explosive Cabernet needs time, but there is plenty to look forward to. Intense chalky/mineral notes frame the ample, saline finish with tons of Atlas Peak personality. Paul Hobbs and his long-time winemaker Megan Baccitich have turned out a spectacular set of 2012s and 2013s. As always, the Hobbs Cabernets are d ...Read More »

2013 Plumpjack "Estate" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon New!
2013 Plumpjack "Estate" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Oakville is a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot aged in 80% new French oak. A beautiful, saturated purple color offers up blackberry, crème de cassis, licorice, charcoal and camphor. Full-bodied, yet still youthful and tight, it is bursting with terrific purity, texture and length. This big, classic Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon will hit its prime in 10-15 years, and last 30 or more years, based on how older vintages from this sector have aged. It's a beauty.

A layered, lush, Pomerol-inspired Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers up notes of Christmas fruitcake, forest floor, underbrush, plums and red and blackcurrants.

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville (27%) and Rutherford (73%), and aged 21 months in 52% new French oak, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, lots of minerality, a hint of oak in the background, and abundant crème de cassis fruit.

2013 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon, RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS, also from clone 337, but in this case from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, shows an absolutely perfect 100-point nose of red, black and blue fruits, charcoal, graphite and forest floor. It hits the palate with a seamless integration of wood, tannin, acidity and alcohol and has tremendous opulence and palate presence in its full-bodied, long finish. On aromatics alone, it rates a perfect score, but I ended up being somewhat conservative I suppose. It should drink well for three decades as well. (RP)" (10/2015)
