2014 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend Top Pick!
2014 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points James Suckling: "Loads of dark tobacco aromas with blackcurrants and black olives. Boysenberries, too. Full to medium body, ultra-fine tannins and lots of flavors of smoke, dried roasted chillis, black truffles, mushrooms and fruit. Bright acidity on the finish. Sexy and subtle austerity. Alluring. Very approachable now but better in 2021." (1/2017) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014s, where the production of Napanook was only 2,200 cases and Dominus slightly more than the 2015 at 4,000 cases, was another early harvest, although somewhat later than 2015.

2013 Kapcsandy Family "Estate Cuvée - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pinnacle for Bordeaux varietals in the 38 years that I have been tasting California wines is 2013. 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. In many ways it is a more recent version of 2001.

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 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Pre-Arrival)

The tannin texture is exceptional. Great wine. Drink in 2020 and onwards." (5/2017) 94-97 points Vinous: "The 2014 Insignia is shaping up to be one of the surprises of the vintage. A rich, explosive Insignia, the 2014 exudes pedigree. A host of dark red cherry, plum and pomegranate notes make a strong first impression. Bright, vibrant aromatics add lift, while beams of salinity contribute to the wine's energetic personality. One of the ...Read More »

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 »

Dark red cherry, plum, mint, licorice, new leather and spices flesh out in a rich, dense wine endowed with exceptional balance. This is an unusually sweet, almost flamboyant wine from Dunn, and yet all the elements are impeccably balanced. (AG)" (12/2016)

2013 Kapcsandy Family "Grand Vin - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Little can be added to the greatness of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin, a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. The wine (600 cases) is truly stunning in its dense, crème de cassis and blackberry-scented nose with a hint of barbecue smoke and forest floor.

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.

As it turned out, the soils at S.L.V. were different, primarily volcanic.

2013 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon, RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $325)

99 points James Suckling: "This is shows complex aromas of chili, red tile and red currant aromas. Full-bodied, dense and powerful. It is so intense and rich yet remains agile and fresh. Austere tannins give this wine form and tension. Lively and captivating. Beautiful now but be patient. Better in 2021." (5/2016) 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 w ...Read More »

2013 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) Top Pick!
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 »

2014 Sine Qua Non "Shakti" California Grenache
Bid on this bottle of 2014 Sine Qua Non "Shakti" California Grenache ((96-98RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Leading off the 2014s from barrel, the 2014 Grenache Shakti (88% Grenache, 6% Mourvedre, 4% Petite Sirah and the rest Touriga Nacionale) comes largely from the Cumulus Vineyard, with smaller portions from Eleven Confessions, the Third Twin and Bien Nacido. Aged almost entirely in neutral barrels (6% new), it has a supple, sexy profile as well as killer base notes of black raspberries, cassis, ground herbs and violets. Deep, concentrated, full-bodied and laced with sweet tannin, I continue to be baffled why so few people in California get close to this level of quality with Grenache. (JD)" (08/2016)

2013 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

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. 98+ (AG)" (9/2016) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain boasts ...Read More »

2014 Philip Togni "Estate" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2014 Philip Togni "Estate" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

94-97 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is wonderfully savory and mineral, with a host of graphite, liquefied rock, floral and dark stone fruit notes that open up in the glass. Energetic, crystalline and beautifully focused throughout, the 2014 exudes class from the very first taste. Stylistically, it is a bit less generous than the 2013 was at the same stage in its life. This hypothetical blend is every bit as striking as the individual component lots suggested when I tasted them this past spring. Philip Togni adds that a larger than normal crop stretched ou ...Read More »

2013 Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points James Suckling: "This is a solid Cab with a backbone of ripe and chewy tannins and lots of wet earth, black currant and autumnal leaf character. Full and powerful. This needs a few years to soften. Better in 2019." (1/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (White Label) is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in about two-thirds new French oak. Very Bordeaux-like, with a St.-Julien-like personality, there are notes of crushed stones, gunflint, licorice, cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake and loads of red and blackcurrants. It is a powerful wine with a hint of chocolate as well. ...Read More »

2013 Anakota "Helena Montana" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana offers chocolate, sweet black cherries, a dense purple color, great intensity and purity - a real mountain style, but with surprisingly soft tannins. It is easily a 30-year wine. The good news is that there are 520 cases of this big, boisterous, yet voluptuously textured offering from Anakota. (RP)" (10/2015) 93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana is a dark, powerful wine.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2006 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (95CG, 94RP, 94WE, 94WS, 92JS, 92VN). Connoisseurs Guide: " *Three Stars* Already amazingly seductive with wonderfully rich aromas of sweet oak, cocoa and fully expressed fruit making a first-rate introduction, this riveting young wine in no way lets up on the palate and delivers deep, multi-faceted flavors that combine ripeness, sweet oak and very precise fruit in near-perfect proportion. As is often the case with Insignia bottlings, it is so beautifully balanced that it invites early drinking, and, while we do not condemn giving in to its charms, we also would lobby strongly for patience as its best years lie down the line."

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 »

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classic 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Bosché Vineyard is 90.1% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest 9.9% Merlot, aged 26 months in oak. This is one of the iconic wines of Napa, and one of the great vineyard sources coming from Rutherford on foothill bench soils at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. This is one of the finest examples of this wine I’ve ever tasted, and there have been many. The wine shows plenty of loamy soil notes intermixed with blackberry, cassis, cedar wood and spice box. It’s full-bodied, shows terrific intensity, a multi-dimensional mouth ...Read More »

2014 L'Aventure "Estate Cuvée" Paso Robles Red Blend

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A massive, gorgeously rich and decadent version of this cuvee, the 2014 Estate Cuvee (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Syrah and 15% Petit Verdot) is reminiscent of a 2005 Pomerol with its huge bouquet of cassis, toasted spice, graphite, damp earth and leafy herb aromas and flavors. Thick, full-bodied, unctuous and palate-saturating, yet still with purity and grace, it's an insanely good Bordeaux blend (or close) from Paso Robles that will have two decades of overall longevity. One of the reference point estates in Paso Robles is unquestionably Stephan Asseo ...Read More »

Second wine from this new estate, which is owned by Christian Moueix of Dominus and Bordeaux."
