2010 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Vinous: "A rich, dark wine, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Trailside Vineyard possesses superb depth and texture while maintaining a classic sense of structure. Sweet dark cherry, plum, cedar, tobacco, licorice and mint all take shape as this succulent, resonant wine shows off its expressive personality. Drink this deep, pliant Cabernet Sauvignon over the next two decades. The combination of ripeness from the late season hear and structure is hugely appealing.

2014 Ehlers Estate St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon

James Suckling: "Shows lots of fruit on the nose with hints of dried herbs such as rosemary. Medium to full body, medium tannins and a light finish." (1/2016) K&L Notes: Founded by Gold Rush merchant Bernard Ehlers in the 1880s, Ehlers Estate is now owned by the Leducq Foundation, established by Jean and Sylviane Leducq to support cardiovascular research. The 42-acre estate that surrounds the winery is CCOF certified organic and the Ehlers team practices sustainable and biodynamic viniculture. It's a lesser-known gem of the Napa Valley, and we love their wines, too.

2014 Quivira "Black Boar" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Zinfandel Black Boar has baked cherries and dark chocolate notes for openers, followed by dried fruit cake, Indian spices, fertile soil and dried herb hints. Full-bodied, concentrated and with lovely vibrancy, it has chewy tannins and a refreshing backbone, finishing with lingering earth notes.

2014 Baker Lane "Sonoma Coast Cuvée" Sonoma Coast Syrah

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Grown at the organically farmed Baker Lane estate, this shows the sunny warmth of the 2014 vintage, providing an unusually muscular expression of coastal syrah. It starts out with a compact, meaty black-olive flavor, then keeps gaining nuance with air, turning toward manzanita bark and peppercorn, spicy brightness breaking through the savory bulwark of structure and the alcohol warmth so that a fresh, iron-tinged woodland flavor lasts. If you happen to have a friend who hunts wild boar, this would make a great holiday gift. (475 cases)" K&L Notes: Winery Notes: "The ... Read More »

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Dark golden-hay in color, this white was fermented mostly in 900-gallon French oak foudres, with the remainder fermented in smaller French oak barrels. Nutty lime and gooseberry provide intrigue and saltiness against bright acidity, making for a complex and compelling impression on the palate." (2/2017) K&L Notes: Grgich Hills grows their Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc in American Canyon and Carneros vineyards where the cool climate and clay soils allow the vines to be dry-farmed organically.

Needs two or three years to soften." (1/2017) 90 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Lyndenhurst offers lovely immediacy and intensity. Black cherry, chocolate, menthol and licorice give the 2014 much of its racy, voluptuous personality. This is a decidedly ripe style for the Lyndenhurst, as the wine feels slightly bigger and richer than is the norm. That said, the 2014 will drink well upon release. (AG)" (12/2016)

Tiers of currant, anise, blackberry, cherry and wild berry flavors are supported by pretty mocha-scented oak and plush, velvety tannins that firm up on the finish, giving it a solid backbone, yet the persistent flavors keep pushing through.

2008 Ghost Block Estate Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Tobacco, sweet herbs, cassis and plums are some of the notes that flow from this beautifully delineated, striking Cabernet Sauvignon. I especially like the length and pure finesse of the finish. This is a strong showing from Ghost Block. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

A blend of 52% Grenache, 26% Mourvedre, and 22% Syrah, it has a decidedly savory bouquet of blackberry liqueur, kirsch, violets, bouquet garni, ground pepper, and graphite.

There is a lot to look forward to here, but as is the case with so many of the Littorai 2012s, patience is required."

This Amarone-styled, deep ruby/purple-colored Zinfandel reveals dark earthy fruits along with hints of figs, raisins, plums, and prunes, abundant sweetness from high glycerin, excellent density, and tremendous purity for such a dry table wine.

2004 Araujo "Altagracia" Napa Valley Red Blend

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Despite having over 40-plus acres of vineyards in the northeasterly sector of Napa just south of Calistoga, the production at Araujo remains relatively limited, with the flagship wine, the Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard, producing between 1,600 and 2,200 cases of wine, and the second wine, the Altagracia, between 800 and 1,200 cases. Add to that another 1,000 cases of Sauvignon Blanc and 300-400 cases of Syrah, and there is just not a lot to go around given the greatness that can be achieved from this vineyard. Much of the credit has to go to proprie ...Read More »

2000 Turley "Dogtown Vineyard" Lodi Zinfandel

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full red. Perfumed aromas of red berries, clove and pepper. Dense, spicy and intense, with brisk acidity giving the wine verve and delicacy and extending the flavors. Has a sappy juicy quality. Relies more on its acids than its fairly light tannins for structure. Don't think of Lodi as a uniformly hot area, says winemaker Jordan, pointing out that these vines were harvested later than the overwhelming majority of Napa Valley zinfandel in 2000." (6/2002) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Zinfandel Dogtown (16.2% alcohol) is a huge effort. It is not as complex as some of its si ...Read More »

2007 Rhys "Family Farm Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir

90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Under the flagship Rhys moniker, the Rhys 2007 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard looks to be a brilliant Pinot Noir from clay/loamy soils and sandstone. This Pinot exhibits intense red cherry and black raspberry fruit intermixed with some damp earth and forest floor notes. The wine is medium to full-bodied, elegant, pure, and just hinting at its ultimate potential. Backward, with an attractive acid profile, and sweet, noble tannin, this wine should hit its peak in about 3 years and last for at least a decade. (RP)" (12/2008) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Ripe cherry and dark b ...Read More »

2008 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby-colored 2008 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard (a 10-acre parcel planted at 1,400 feet) possesses a big, sweet, powerful nose of raspberries, spring flowers, damp earth, and mossy, foresty vegetation. Sweet currants, pomegranates, and black raspberries also emerge on the palate of this full-bodied effort. With excellent acidity and delineation as well as a weighty, long, rich mouthfeel with lots of structure and tannin, this enormously promising wine suggests a long life if stored in a cold cellar. (RP)" (2/2010) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Pure, highly expressive ...Read More »

2001 Turley "Rattlesnake Acres" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The inky blue/purple-colored 2001 Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Acres (a mere 13.2% alcohol) reveals a promising nose of licorice, blackberries, minerals, and flowers. This stacked and packed, full-bodied, enormously endowed effort is relatively accessible for Petite Sirah, but ideally should have 5-6 more years of cellaring. It will keep for two decades." (8/2003) K&L Notes: Turley Wine Cellars makes thirty-four wines, the vast majority of which are single vineyard designate Zinfandels and Petite Syrahs. By focusing on old vine vineyards in particular, Turley aims to bot... Read More »

2008 Rhys "Alesia" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid red. Strawberry, raspberry and spicecake on the nose, with a sexy sandalwood quality. In a distinctly vibrant style, with the sexy spice and red berry qualities following through in the mouth. Sappy and fine-grained wine, finishing on a suave note of candied flowers. This will be the last vintage for this wine. (ST)" (6/2010)
