2013 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml) Top Pick!
2013 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A beautiful ripe, plump, fat and opulent style of Cabernet Sauvignon that Caymus has pioneered, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple color, loads of juicy blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, low acidity and no real evidence of oak, but a nice, plush, full-bodied opulence. This is irresistible, especially for a Cabernet Sauvignon coming in at 14.9% natural alcohol. Drink it over the next decade or more (RP)." (12/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, smooth and creamy, with vanilla, mocha, dark berry and licorice notes, offering a compelling mix of subtly sweet flavors set ...Read More »

2014 The Calling "Dutton Ranch" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a collaboration between Jim Nance and Peter Deutsch, and one certainly has to like the name they chose. Their 2014 Chardonnay Dutton Ranch displays beautiful tangerine oil, orange blossom, and honeysuckle in a medium to full-bodied, crisp, clean style with very discreet oak. Fresh and lively, this is a beautiful Chardonnay of elegance and authority. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.

The palate is soft and dynamic, with ripe black currants given complexity though licorice and butter-softened roasting herbs, all wrapped in tannins that keep the flavors steady throughout.

2002 Three Dog Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon  (Previously $40) Top Pick!
2002 Three Dog Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $40)

Our team was buzzing with excitement over this wine, and a few jaws dropped when they heard what this gem costs. It is beautifully aged Cabernet from the Santa Cruz Mountains region, south of San Francisco, and is a great example of an old-school, classically styled California red. It is also a rare treat to be able to share a perfectly mature Cab of this kind of caliber. To do so at under $25 is almost unheard of. "Today, the Cabernet Sauvignon produced in the region is among America’s best," the New York Times recently said about the Santa Cruz Mounta... Read More »

2014 Banshee Sonoma County Pinot Noir Top Pick!
2014 Banshee Sonoma County Pinot Noir

As difficult as it is to produce excellent Pinot Noir, it is even more difficult to do so at a fine value. In their development of the Banshee label, the winemakers gained a stable of quality sources for Pinot fruit from the finest AVAs in California. The 2014 Sonoma County Pinot Noir is the sixth vintage from the enterprising team at Banshee Wines. A large percentage of it is still sourced from the Sonoma Coast, often declassified barrels from vineyards that close followers of top-tier West Coast Pinot may recognize.

2014 Kalinda Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2014 Kalinda Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

We were so happy with the 2013 Kalinda Napa Cabernet that we went back to the same well for the 2014. From another exceptional year for Napa Cabernet, this wine is lush and quite rich with tons of cassis on the nose and palate. Still quite young and showing some rounded tannins, I would cellar this beauty for five years minimum, but if you must drink it, decant one hour at least and serve with a hearty meat course. One hint: the property whence the grapes came is located quite close to a town that really does not have a wine shop in it. - KL Staffer Dri... Read More »

Lively acidity presides over all, giving a powerful backbone to a sophisticated wine." (6/2016) Connoisseurs Guide: "*Good Value* Sweet oak makes an immediate play for attention in both the moderately rich aromas and flavors of this nicely rounded and fairly outgoing effort, but steady ripe cherry fruit soon catches up and expediently takes the lead.

Above all else, the 2013 is a wine of finesse. Hints of pastry, baked apple and spices are woven into the super-expressive, oily finish.

More of a field blend than a true Zinfandel, the 2014 is soft and forward, with expressive red-fleshed fruit, bright acidity and terrific overall balance. The Old Vine is 77% Zinfandel and a generous 23% mixed blacks. Best of all, the Old Vine Zinfandel is a fabulous value. This is a stellar set of wines from Morgan Twain-Peterson and Chris Cottrell.

2012 Thomas Coyne Livermore Valley Merlot (Previously $25)

Back in August of last year I was approached by Anne Marie Coyne-Kashkooli, the daughter of Thomas Coyne, who was curious if we were interested in buying a large lot from the Thomas Coyne Winery. To hear that name was a blast from the past for me. For years before I came to K&L I sold the wines out of a little shop in Berkeley that I helped run, and they were always wildly popular with our customers.

2012 Smith-Madrone Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Smith-Madrone Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is quite a bit more polished than the 2011. Ripe, voluptuous and very much in the style of the year, the 2012 is a showy wine, with plenty of intensity and resonance. At the same time, there is plenty of tannic backbone lurking beneath that gives the wine its power and overall structure. These are the first wines I have tasted from Smith Madrone and proprietor Stu Smith in some time. Smith Madrone is located on Spring Mountain, one of the most pedigreed sites for growing Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley. The three vintages I ...Read More »

2012 Kuleto "Native Son" Napa Valley Red Blend

Wine Enthusiast: "A Zinfandel-based blend, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot and Malbec, this wine is hearty, thick and dense. It traffics in smoky char, leathery tannins and a strong taste of tobacco, finishing with a flash of red plum." (12/2015)

2013 Roth Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Top Pick!
2013 Roth Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Pinot Noir is a seductive style of Pinot, with a medium ruby color, notes of black cherry and raspberry, light tannin, and not much depth, but it is superficially attractive and supple. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. (RP)" (3/2016)

2013 Melville "Verna's" Santa Barbara County Syrah Top Pick!
2013 Melville "Verna's" Santa Barbara County Syrah

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is likely the last vintage from this vineyard, which the family winery seemingly mastered in this bottling. There's an underlying umami-driven smoked meat backbone to the nose that also shows bold cherry blossom, olallieberry, pepper, dried herbs and blackberry-soy sauce. The palate is complex yet doesn't overpower, with bits of purple flowers, blueberry, black pepper and menthol. (MK)" (12/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another blockbuster is the 2013 Syrah Verna's, which comes from a vineyard located north of the Sta. Rita Hills, near Los Alamos. It was 70% destemmed and ag ...Read More »

2012 Darioush "Caravan" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Darioush "Caravan" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Caravan is made with the same meticulous skill and quality Napa fruit as the Darioush "Signature" wines, but it displays a somewhat more fruit-driven palate and forward profile. A blending of 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Malbec add finesse to the Cabernet and complexity to the finish. Fruit was hand-harvested into small baskets before being sorted twice before pressing. The wine spent 22 months in 70% new French and other European oak before bottling. From the winery: "A fabulous vintage produced a stylish and substantial 2012 Caravan with a fir... Read More »
