2013 Ancient Peaks Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon excels at Ancient Peaks' estate Margarita Vineyard, where it achieves both ripeness and balance amid one of the coolest, longest growing seasons in the Paso Robles region. Here, their Cabernet Sauvignon vines are planted to a range of soil types, bringing added natural complexity to the wine. Taste Notes from the Winery: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon presents multidimensional aromas of plum, raspberry, tobacco and toasted oak. Rounded flavors of black cherry and black currant are interwoven with earthier hints of olive, mint, black tea... Read More »

2012 Robert Sinskey "POV" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Producer Notes: "POV 2012 is that wine you take to dinner to not just impress, but to enjoy. A deep, dark purple hue telegraphs its impressive nature as the aromas and flavors of macerated berries (strawberries, blue/blackberries, and cherries), are backed by notes of bay leaf and fennel seed. The wine obviously came from optimally ripened fruit with supple tannin balanced by just the slightest hint of fine oak barrels and vibrant acidity. Mouth filling and delicious with an incredibly long finish, this wine begs for a seat at tonight’s dinner table."

2013 Shafer Napa Valley Merlot

92 points Vinous: "Shafer's 2013 Merlot is wonderfully fresh, brisk and nuanced. Sweet red cherry, plum, mint and expressive spice notes are all pushed forward. This open-knit, fleshy Merlot should drink well for the next handful of years. Shafer is one of Napa Valley's best oiled machines. Year after year the wines deliver the goods in a rich, sumptuous style that defines the very essence of contemporary Napa Valley at its very best. The 2012s are terrific, but Shafer really shines in 2013 and 2014, two vintages in which the wines have a bit more energy and delineation t ...Read More »

2012 Storybook Mountain "Mayacamas Range" Napa Valley Zinfandel

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* It’s young and it’s deep; it’s nicely focused on bright blackberry fruit and it’s tight but promising—and that is just in its mid-volume aromas. The tight aspect comes doubly into play in the mouth where tannin and acidity combine to add coarse, grabby impressions that interrupt the wine’s fairly likeable fruit and consign the wine to the cellar. Time is absolutely of the essence here, and given the remarkable Storybook Mountain track record with its Zins, we have nothing but full confidence in this one’s ability to reach great heights. ...Read More »

2011 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2011 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium red-ruby. Tight aromas and flavors of dark berries and licorice complicated by tobacco, spicecake and flowers. Bright and juicy in the mouth, with a touch of sweetness counterpointed by sound acidity. Nicely avoids the greenness of the vintage and finishes with a fine dusting of tannins, good energy and moderate length."

Dusty in red currant and herb, it offers mellowed tannins and a peppery underbelly." (11/2014) Wine Spectator: "Well-balanced, if shade ...Read More »

The wine is sensationally rich and once again a great success from this winery, which has had such an incredible track record for world-class Chardonnays.

2010 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

From the winemaker: "In the early 1980s, the Heitz Family acquired a marvelous Rutherford vineyard bordered on one side by the Silverado Trail and nudged on the other by the Conn Creek. In 1989, we introduced our Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon--an opulent wine that consistently expresses its lineage in bold, luscious statements. Our Trailside Vineyard produces Cabernet grapes that are incredibly intense and flavorful. We try to enhance that natural bravado during our extended aging process by using new French oak barrels."

It feels concentrated yet fresh, lasting on a woody spice tone that seems to come from the fruit rather than oak—an impression of sap drawn through a vine toward the sun. Pour it at cellar temperature this summer with grilled pork chops." (10/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby.

Plum, black cherry, mocha, sweet herbs, cloves and violets are some of the notes that are laced into the voluptuous, racy finish.

Here, though, it is the Russian River that speaks with notable eloquence. Orange blossom, butter, new French oak, apricot pit, mint and spice notes abound.

2012 Ehlers Estate St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon

Connoisseurs Guide: "As boisterous as any wine in this set of tastings, the Ehlers 1886 is nothing if it is not full, rich and outgoing. Its aromas of highly ripened grapes that all but speak of dried currants and cherries are given range and complexity by a boldly stated olivey streak and by both oaky and herbal overlays. Somewhat rounded even in its youth as it enters, then a tad astringent towards the back, this is a wine that both cries out for cellaring while at the same time tasting of fruit that has already reached its peak for volume and depth.

It is more refreshing than it is rich, yet it keeps Chardonnay character in its sights and it will be most at home with milder fare."

At the same time, so much of its appeal is in its tightly-coiled energy and tension.

This is very shut down for now, and should age for a long time. The flavors build on the finish. Drink no ...Read More »

2003 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the smallest crops to be included in the Ridge Monte Bello, only 32% of the production made it into the 2003, which is largely Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. Out of barrel as well as post-bottling I liked this wine a lot, and it has changed very little from when I last tasted it in February, 2010. It boasts an inky/blue/purple color along with sweet black currant, blueberry, graphite, licorice and toasty vanillin aromas. The tannins are still noticeable in this full-bodied 2003, but seem reasonably well-integrated. ...Read More »

1996 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Merlot (3,000 cases) is a worthy rival. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc tips the scales at a heady 14.6% alcohol. Could it be better than the 1997? The wine is opaque black/purple-colored, with a knock-out nose of plums, black cherries, chocolate, raspberries, licorice, and toasty new oak. Viscous in the mouth, with superb purity, this is a riveting, mind-boggling Merlot that sets a new reference point for this varietal in California. It can be drunk now, but has the potential to last for 15 or more ...Read More »

2011 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Wine & Spirits: "The cool 2011 season turned out a pristine vintage of Monte Bello, made from Cabernet (88 percent) grown on a limestone-inflected ridge high above Silicon Valley, blended with some Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The team at Ridge let the fruit recover for two weeks following an early October storm before picking, and were more aggressive in their extraction than normal, drawing as much color and structure as possible from the delicate fruit. The aromas revolve around oak at first—anise, wood smoke, cedar bark and cinnamon—but the wood’s contribution is fine ...Read More »

2012 Storybook Mountain "Reserve" Estate Napa Valley Zinfandel

94 points Wine & Spirits: "If you go for a hike in the Palisades above Napa Valley, this is what the summer air smells like—sage, manzanita and wild flowers. That multidimensional scent gives the wine a floral, spicy aromatic complexity rarely found in Napa Valley reds. This is a lean and muscular zin, and though it may not have the kind of energy that sustains Storybook’s best Estate Reserves for decades in the cellar, it is tightly focused, its ripe fruit tunneling through mineral-inflected tannins and making an imprint on the palate that lasts. Perhaps its marathon-runner’s bui ...Read More »

2014 Spottswoode Napa/Sonoma Counties Sauvignon Blanc (1.5L)

From the producer: "Our Sauvignon Blanc is quintessentially Californian, with a beautiful ripeness balanced with wonderful structure and acidity. Grapes from a handful of carefully selected vineyards join our Spottswoode Estate fruit in the composition of this wine. A combination of small, stainless barrels, French oak, and concrete, egg-shaped cuves are utilized in fermentation. This technique results in a complex, rich, and vibrant wine that stands well on its own, pairs beautifully with food, and is further enhanced with a bit of cellaring. An invitin... Read More »

2001 Peter Michael "Le Moulin Rouge" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The extraordinary 2001 Pinot Noir Le Moulin Rouge continues to remind me of ripe vintages of the DRC Richebourg or La Tache. It is 100% destemmed, whereas those wines include 100% stems, but its extraordinary floral, wild mountain flower, black cherry, raspberry, and forest floor notes are noteworthy. It boasts a deep ruby color to the rim, gorgeous aromatics, a voluptuous palate, and a magnificent, 60-second finish. It is a beauty!" (2/2005) 94 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Dark-colored and uncommonly rich, almost Syrah-like in its density. Enormously complex and con ...Read More »
