2014 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Fumé Blanc

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. The juice is fermented with natural yeast... 80% in large 900-gallon casks, an... Read More »

2007 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points James Suckling: "A wine with lovely restraint with plums, blueberries and hints of tobacco. Earthy. Full and silky and long. Lovely length. Juicy and delicious. Needs a year or two to come together." (4/2012) 92 points Vinous: "Still a young wine, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Trailside Vineyard is just beginning to show the first signs of aromatic nuance. Dark red cherry, plums, mocha and spices round out this nicely layered Cabernet. Racy, powerful and voluptuous, but with enough tannic backbone and structure to drink well for a number of years, the 2007 Trailside is showing quite well today ...Read More »

2012 Robert Sinskey "POV" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Robert Sinskey's POV is a Bordeaux-style blend from Los Carneros, on the southerly reach of Napa Valley, by the San Pablo portion of the San Francisco Bay--better known for Pinot Noir. For the style that he's going for, Sinskey can make it work: "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 optima... Read More »

Vinous: "The 2012 Zinfandel, from Ink Grade, is soft, floral and perfumed throughout. Sweet red cherry, mint and wild flowers are all knit together in a delicate lifted wine. Drink this fragrant, juicy Zinfandel over the next few years. (AG)" (10/2015) K&L Notes: This Zinfandel is fresh, lively and very balanced.

2014 Frog's Leap Napa Valley Zinfandel

94 points Wine & Spirits: "John Williams is on a roll, following his exceptional 2013 Zinfandel with an equally delicious 2014. He dry-farms his 40-year-old vines, harvesting them at the same time as his Petite sirah so he can co-ferment the fruit. That brings the tannins together in a refreshing, gentle structure that lifts the fruit flavors, presenting them as perfectly ripe forest berries. The tannins feel plush, even as they carry a note of black-peppercorn spice and manzanita. This is a beautiful Napa Valley red that happens to speak with an accent of zin."

2015 Tablas Creek "Côtes de Tablas Blanc" Paso Robles White Rhône Blend

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Cote de Tablas Blanc, which includes less Viognier than normal, checks in as an even split of Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne. It's a perfumed, elegant and textured white that offers lots of citrus and saltiness as well as more background notes of chamomile, flowers and spice. It will shine on the dinner table, and while I'd lean toward drinking bottles over the coming couple of years, it will evolve for longer. (JD)" (8/2016) 91 points Vinous: "Light bright yellow.

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."

2016 Frog's Leap Rutherford Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Made entirely from dry-farmed and certified organically grown grapes from their estate vineyards in Rutherford, the winemaker has this to say about the 2016 vintage, "The beautiful aromatics of the 2016 Frog’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc brings great excitement to the wine. Peach blossom and white flower give way to a very light slatey aroma that is a perfect introduction to the crisp minerally flavors. This wine spent a bit more time on its fermentation lees than is usual and there is significant evidence for this in the depth of its flavors."

Today, the 2010 appears to be entering a closed phase, so it is best left alone for at least another 5-10 years, perhaps longer. The signatures are super-ripe, exotic fruit, sweet aromatics and firm tannins, all of which ensure the 2010 will be utterly magnificent in a few decades.

2009 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Vinous: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard is a relatively immediate Marthas, with a real feeling of mid-palate density and weight that is almost out of character for this estate. Sweet, silky tannins give the 2009 much of its succulence. Scents of mint, pine and eucalyptus wrap around the juicy, inviting finish. (AG)" (10/2015) Wine Spectator: "Shows notable herb, mint and bay leaf overtones, with a tight, dense core of dried currant and berry that is slow to open. This is very shut down for now, and should age for a long time. The flavors build on the finish. Drink no ...Read More »

1996 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Bello (80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, and 9% Petit Verdot that reached 13.4% alcohol) represents a severe selection of only 40% of the vineyard's crop. A blockbuster, powerful, concentrated Monte Bello, it possesses an opaque purple color, plenty of spicy oak in the nose (100% American oak has always been used for aging Monte Bello), and a deep, layered, concentrated style. There is plenty of tannin, but it is sweeter than that found in the 1997, and the wine is more concentrated and extracted. There is a touch of o ...Read More »

2001 Turley "Dogtown" Lodi Zinfandel

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 2001 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard, no one seems to “let the dogs out” better than Turley. This dense plum/ruby-colored Zinfandel possesses jammy aromas of black cherries and plums, followed by full-bodied, fleshy flavors with loads of fruit, glycerin, and pleasing tactile sensations. (RP)" (10/2003) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright ruby. Nose currently dominated by exotic notes of grapefruit and orange peel. Sweet, dense and highly concentrated, with spicy, peppery fruit flavors lifted by rather citrusy acids. A powerful, tannic, very long wine with excellent grip. Cl ...Read More »

2015 Bonterra Mendocino/Lake Counties Sauvignon Blanc

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* Fresh and vibrant grapefruit, lemon and crisp apple aromas join equally lively citrus flavors in this medium-bodied, not-too-tart wine. It's refreshing and clean, pairing especially well with seafood." (4/2017) Connoisseurs Guide: "*Good Value* Favoring grass and leafy greens but fit with a fair bit of mildly melony fruit, this squeaky clean offering rises above the candied simplicity so common in its similarly priced cousins and is varietally on point from first sniff to finish. If just a touch coarse at the edges, it is nicely balanced overall, and, given its mode ...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 »
