Organically grown, Justin's 2014 Cabernet is rich and full bodied. Black fruit, spice, tobacco, violet and savory herbal notes will satisfy any red wine lover.
90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "John Williams and his team farm their certified-organic vineyards without irrigation, and maintained that regimen in 2015 despite a protracted drought. The result is a refreshing and clean wine with tight flavors of grapefruit and lime-like acidity. The citrus-blossom scents last along with the tart fruit. Chill it for Hog Island oysters." (6/2016)
As Wall Street Journal wine writers Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher advise, "If you ever see Heitz Cellars' Ink Grade Port...grab it!" (from "Give Sweets a Chance," 10/2009). It's sound advice, for this rich and intensely satisfying dessert-style wine from Heitz sure does hit the sweet spot for under $20! A blend of eight different Portuguese grape varieties with distinctive character from the Ink Grade Vineyard in Napa Valley, the current blend draws from the 2005, 2006, and 2007 vintages. From the winery: "The deep hue of our Ink Grade Port sets the to... 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. Zesty aromas lead to raspberry, black cherry, sweet anise, and a dash of black pepper.
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made in a style that will appeal to fans of both creamy, fruity richness and more austere notes of fresh grass, this wine is dry, herbal and juicy. It offers accents of vanilla and white plum, as well as the aforementioned fruitiness of peach and pear." (9/2016)
Believing that "wine is not an athletic event," Robert Sinskey does not send wine out for review, but his organic and biodynamically farmed wines in the Carneros region--unusual for Cabernet Sauvignon, but it has a history there--and Stags Leap District are highly regarded.
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 »
Connoisseurs Guide: "Bright and brisk with a bias to green apples and citrus with but a bare bit of subtle oak in the mix, this straightforward, medium-bodied effort eschews overt ripeness and instead charts a leaner, somewhat firmer course. 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." (1/2016) Wine Spectator: "Elegantly styled, with a delicate mix of green apple, citrus and quince flavors. Clean and refreshing on the finish. (JL, Web-2016)" K&L Notes: Although famous for their Cabs, Heitz Cellar has been making Chardo... Read More »
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. Smoky aromas of poached pear, honey and pungent flowers, accompanied by a hint of su ...Read More »
93 points Wine Spectator: "Shows hints of maturity, with chocolate mint, cherry and currant flavors that are intense yet elegant, balanced and stylish. Full-bodied, firm and focused, this is complex and concentrated without being heavy, offering the wine's classic style and personality. (JL)" (10/2009) K&L Notes: A legend in Napa Valley Cabernet, Martha's Vineyard in the Valley's Oakville appellation is now certified organic by CCOF. Heralded as a classic, the 2004 shows pure "Martha's" Cabernet varietal blackberry and black cherry aromas and flavors along with the iconic wine's tell-tale mint... Read More »
92 points Vinous: "Bright ruby. Mineral-accented red fruit liqueur scents are complemented by suggestions of white pepper and candied flowers. Fleshy, seamless and gently sweet on the palate, offering juicy cherry and raspberry flavors underscored by a smoky mineral quality. Shows excellent clarity and spicy lift on the finish, which is given shape by smooth, harmonious tannins. The Grenache component is really showing itself right now. (JR)" (9/2016) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fresh-pressed boysenberry and olallie-berry aromas are lifted by tons of inviting violet florality, garrigue-like potpourri a ...Read More »
Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* This wine has a strong layer of spicy oak from the first sniff through the lingering finish. Deep, ripe black cherry and blackberry flavors fill in the palate, and the full body of moderate tannins creates a mouthfeel that’s plush." (7/2016) K&L Notes: A cleanly made Cab priced for everyday drinking. McManis's strategy of 100% stainles- steel fermentation followed by aging in a combination of new and used French and American oak enables them to produce a consistently tasty value Cabernet that continues to stand out in the under $10 category.
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Earthy dried herb and truffle provide a rough-and-tumble point of view in this wine, a mix of complexity and contoured acidity. The shy, juicy red fruit is cradled in integrated oak." (10/2016) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Bold raspberry and toasty spice aromas combines with lively, jammy flavors of black cherry, smoky anise and dried sage. Drink now through 2027. (TF, Web-2016)" (10/2016)
93 points Wine Spectator: "Minty bay leaf aromas are pure, with a spicy edge, leading to firm dark berry, mocha, mineral and sage flavors that are tight and well-structured, with firm, ripe tannins that provide an excellent backbone. Much too young now, however tempting. Should only get much better. (JL)" (11/2011) K&L Notes: Martha's Vineyards has become one of the most well known Cabernets around the world for its unique mintiness, its rich layers of complexity and its remarkable overall balance. The 2005 growing season enjoyed almost perfect weather conditions throughout the Valley, resulti... Read More »
Wine Spectator: "Key lime and honeydew melon flavors are ripe and tangy, with a succulent, juicy finish, accented by lemon thyme details. (Web Only-2016) (MW)"
92 points Vinous: "The 2013 Merlot is plump and juicy, with plenty of dark red and bluish fruit. Sweet spice, lavender and rose petal open up in the glass, adding further shades of nuance. The Frog's Leap Merlot is not super complex, but it sure is delicious and impeccable in its balance. (AG)" (10/2015) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "There's a healthy 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc in this wine, which is classically structured in red fruit, soft oak and peppery spice. Its cedar notes speak to the Cab within, while the overall texture and breadth of the wine is lengthy, food-ready and impres ...Read More »
Wild Hog is a small family-run operation situated east of Fort Ross, at 1400 feet in elevation five miles from the Pacific Ocean. Co-founder Daniel Schoenfeld started out as a home winemaker in 1977, born out of a passion for gardening, food and wine. Together with his wife Marion, the Wild Hog team is committed to sustainable farming and wine production; they have been certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers since 1981.
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 »
Made with certified organically grown grapes, this Mendocino Sauvignon Blanc from vines aged 37 years was fermented mainly in stainless steel, with just 7% in neutral French oak barrels.
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 »
Wine & Spirits: "Sweet fruit contrasts this wine’s flinty, savory lees notes. It’s a juicy, creamy-rich white to chill for bacon-wrapped figs." (6/2016) K&L Notes: According to the winery: "Every year we grow increasingly more confident that the approach that we take with our Chardonnay not only produces a wine that is lovely upon release, but continues to develop beautifully in the bottle over time. (Just open a 2010, 2011 and 2012 and you’ll see what I mean). Limited barrel fermentation coupled with extended sur lie aging in concrete vats keeps the wine bright and fresh on the fini...

96 points Vinous: "Not surprisingly, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard is the least expressive of these wines. At the same time, so much of its appeal is in its tightly-coiled energy and tension. Cherry pit, smoke, blood orange, mint and spice open up with time in the glass, but the 2010 is clearly built for cellaring. The wine's brightness and focus are compelling, but the 2010 needs time. (AG)" (10/2015) Wine Spectator: "Lightly aromatic, with savory herb and bay leaf flavors, this is sleek and texturally elegant, presenting an appealing if modest array of mint- and mocha-scent ...Read More »
95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Sourced largely from the Martin Stelling Vineyard behind the winery in the western shade of Oakville, this wine opens with charred oak and a smoky, meaty character that intrigues. Seamless on the palate in soft, perceptible tannin, it delves into characteristics of cedar and brushy sage as it goes, unveiling a wildness that’s hard to contain. Its bright, fresh finish gives it a roundness that’s ready to enjoy now." (2/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This iconic estate has produced the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. Beautiful purity o ...Read More »
This wine expresses the vintage with black pepper, cedar, boysenberry and bramble aromas. On the palate, it bursts with red and purple fruit flavors, including cherries, plum and cassis. Hints of vanilla and spice mark the lingering finish.
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. (AG)" (10/2015) Wine Spectator: "Strong cedary cigar box aromas and flavors dominate, yet the core of currant, minty bay leaf ...Read More »
Tolosa uses the same vineyard blocks for their No-Oak Chardonnay that they do for their barrel fermented Chardonnays. These are the best sites and clones from the estate's sustainably farmed Edna Ranch. They are found mostly in the older plantings a few miles south of the winery. They include the oldest block in the vineyard. They are a mix of field selected "Heritage" clones and more recently introduced Dijon selections. All are hand farmed with an almost obsessive attention to perfecting each block each vintage.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc has a nice flinty, melony character that comes across as Loire Valley-like with its minerality and citrus. (RP)" (3/2016) Wine Spectator: "The vivid lemon, grapefruit and pineapple flavors are bright and crisp, with lime zest and lemon thyme notes gaining momentum on the finish. (Web-2016) (MW)"

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." (8/2016) K&L Notes: When it com... Read More »
90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Possessing tremendous finesse for a Zinfandel as well as surprising elegance given its 16.5% alcohol, the 2002 Zinfandel Mead Ranch Atlas Peak (400 cases) exhibits wonderful aromas of blueberries and blackberries, a distinctive smoky earthiness (probably due to the fact this vineyard is organically farmed and planted in red volcanic soil), admirable purity, and super palate presence. (RP)" (12/2003) Wine Spectator: "A ripe, plump, fleshy and concentrated style that's deftly balanced, with a medley of spice, wild berry, plum and pretty earth tones. Finishes with firm, ripe ...Read More »

Grown at the Biodynamic Filigreen Farm in alluvial soils of gravel & clay loam, breaking preconceived notions has long been a rewarding result of the wine makers'. The Ramato (skin ferment) Pinot Gris from the Biodynamic Filligreen Farm is no exception. With up to five days on the skins, this wine boasts a dimensionality and depth that may surprise. The attributes Tracey (wine maker) describes as "Funkytown" will delight those who enjoy a more adventurous palate. Refreshing flavors of meyer lemon and strawberry, cranberry, and lychees are quickly balanc... Read More »
97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Monte Bello is striking. It is a decidedly muscular Monte Bello endowed with layers of dark fruit. Tobacco, mint, asphalt and crushed rocks develop in the glass, adding tons of complexity and finesse. A long, saline finish rounds things out beautifully. In 2008 the cold growing season stretched into October and the wine definitely has the feel of a cool vintage. The spring frost and the second year of drought conditions lowered yields significantly. Yields were just 1.25 tons per acre on average, but some of the older vineyards came in at less t ...Read More »
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Salted pineapple, lime-laced vanilla ice cream, a slight nuttiness and the warmth of beach sand show on the nose of this wine by veteran Larry Brooks. It zings with lively acidity on the palate, offering brisk apple slices, popcorn and sea salt, with the promise of a long shelf life. (MK)" (12/2015) 90 points Vinous: "Pale gold. Musky pear skin, peach pit and a hint of chamomile on the deeply perfumed nose. Sappy orchard fruit and melon flavors pick up a smoky nuance with aeration. Round and fleshy yet lively, finishing with very good cling and an echo of buttered toast. (JR ...Read More »
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 »
93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Immediately impressing with its sense of crafting and polish and as rich and refined in flavor as it is in aroma, the latest Antaeus marries the deep, dark berry fruit of Zinfandel with a bit of Cabernet cassis and is structured along distinctly claret-like lines. It is layered and long and thoroughly involving right now, but its balance and youthful vitality are the markers of a wine that will grow effortlessly. Allow for at least five years in the cellar, and we are certain those who wait for ten will be very glad that they did." (9/2015)
The 2014 Bear Flat Merlot combines the berry fruits from a warm region with the savory notes of a cooler growing area. Aromas of plum, spice, and forest floor lead into flavors of cedar, herbs, and black olive. A sumptuous and plush, this merlot is ready to enjoy or will improve with a few years of cellaring.
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 »

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Interestingly, the first thing that came to my mind in smelling the 1995 Shafer Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select was a relatively young vintage of Château Latour. Another fabulous effort, with notes of blackcurrants, graphite, a touch of vanilla, sweet tannin and a full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel, this vintage offers stunning aromatics of black fruits, earth, charcoal and lead pencil shavings. In addition, there is an intense, full-bodied mouthfeel, and a youthful vibrancy and vigor that are sensational. This is an amazingly young wine that’s c ...Read More »

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Slightly deeper color than the Carriere; faintly hazy. Complex, precise, perfumed aromas of flower blossom, citrus peel, lichee, licorice and white pepper, with riper hints of mandarin orange and tangerine. A step up in concentration and flavor complexity from the Carriere, with more texture and extract. Still quite youthfully firm-edged on the finish. (ST)" (6/2002)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Brooding and opaque, this is a real bruiser. Aromas of tar and smoky black raspberry lead to dense flavors of dark wild berry, licorice and grilled herb. The tannins are big but ripe. Best from 2017 through 2023." (12/2015) K&L Notes: This is a new label from Quivira, created to "explore the reaches of the Dry Creek Valley" in the quest to create a bolder, richer blend than their popular Dry Creek Valley blend. For the inaugural vintage, most of the fruit was found on their own, Biodynamically farmed estate vineyards. Mostly Zinfandel, with 12% Petite Sirah and 5% Ca... Read More »
98 points James Suckling: "The aromas to this wine are very complex and brooding with blackcurrants, sage and spearmint. Souis bois and wet earth then turn to black fruits. Entrancing nose. This is full-bodied, yet tight and focused with compressed tannins and a long finish. Very intense volcanic sea salt to the wines. A much more subtle and mind-provoking style." (7/2015) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, is a relatively powerful statement from the new owners. Dense ruby/purple in color, with an exceptional nose of crème de cassis, a touch of mul ...Read More »
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby/plum/purple-colored 2012 Merlot possesses sweet black cherry and plum fruit, medium to full body, a lush texture, and impressive purity, length and overall personality. It is difficult to understand why Merlot still receives so much criticism given wines such as this. Enjoy this beauty over the next 7-8 years. (RP)" (10/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a rich, inviting wine with characteristics of dried cranberry and red currant, replete with dusty, spicy tannins and spicy, spiked vanilla. Lush, the tannins are soft and supple, a tad smoky, and the secondary el ...Read More »
93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "(Note from 02/2005 review, re-reviewed with no new note in 06/2005) The 2003 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard displays the telltale squid ink-like color with some purple hues, and a stupendous nose of pure, black fruits intermixed with minerals, licorice, and incense. Full-bodied, with massively extracted flavors but incredibly well-balanced and vibrant, this wine needs 5-10 years of bottle-age and should age effortlessly for a quarter of a century. (RP)" (2/2005) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* What an aroma. So Côte-Rôtie, so powerful and rich, yet so refined. Masses of w ...Read More »

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard was bottled earlier than usual as this vintage is not as massive or concentrated as its predecessors. To my palate, the 1998 is good, although I am not convinced it will be long lived. There are 2,300 cases of this 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit-Verdot, and 3% Cabernet Franc blend. It is supple and elegant, with a complex, evolved bouquet of smoke, black currants, spice box, and cedar. In the mouth, the wine is forward with sweet tannin, gorgeously rich, concentrated fruit, and impressively integrated acidity ...Read More »
92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining purple. Slow-to-unfold aromas of blackberry and boysenberry, with notes of smoky minerals and violet emerging with air. More compressed than the Skyline today, offering zesty dark berry skin flavors and a sexy note of candied flowers. Becomes more peppery with air and finishes with a strong jolt of dusty minerals and excellent length. 92(+?) points (ST)" (6/2010)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard exhibits a deep purple color and a nose of creosote, scorched earth, blue and black fruits, minerals, and hints of pepper and white flowers. A rich wine from a vineyard adjacent to the library in St. Helena, it should be at its finest between 2008-2025. (RP)" (2/2005) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby. Superripe aromas of black cherry and fruity Tellicherry pepper, with exotic suggestions of apricot and white flowers; high-toned and slightly port-like. Then sweet, exotic and penetrating. Finishes with big, ripe tannins." (6/2005) K&L Notes: Turley ... Read More »

96 points James Suckling: "I can't wait to taste this in bottle. Bright fruit, with currants and plums on the nose. A powerful and structured palate, with plenty of tannins and a long flavorful finish. This is precise, a combination of the 2006 and 2007. Barrel sample." (2/2011) 96 points Vinous: "The estate's 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is one of those rare wines that looks like it will be absolutely delicious pretty much at any point in its life. Super-refined and silky, the 2008 caresses the palate with layers of deeply expressive dark fruit. The 2008 is a wine of exceptional textural f ...Read More »

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A nose of black raspberries interwoven with floral notes of blackcurrants and spice jump from the glass of this dense ruby/plum/purple wine. This famous vineyard at the northern end of Napa Valley, which in this era was owned by Bart and Daphne Araujo (today owned by François Pinault, the proprietor of Château Latour), can certainly make the argument that it’s one of the first growths of Napa Valley. Sweet, velvety tannin, medium to full body, and extraordinary complexity and elegance characterize this wine, which is seamless and drinking beautifully. Wh ...Read More »
96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Proprietary Red is significantly better than what I tasted last year, although I certainly gave it a high score. This wine has fleshed out beautifully. The final blend (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec) has a deep purple color, a beautifully sweet nose of blackberries and cassis intermixed with some meatiness, smoke, and a touch of pain grille as well as notes of espresso and licorice. Full-bodied, rich, with decent acidity, excellent delineation, and moderately high tannin, this is a beau ...Read More »

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Zinfandel Old Vines is a blend of lots that did not make the grade for the single vineyard offerings. No wimpy wine at 16.4% alcohol, it exhibits deep, jammy black fruits intermixed with saddle leather, pepper, and earth. With an unctuous texture as well as a big, chewy finish, it is a robust, mouthfilling, value-priced Zinfandel... (RP)" (12/2003) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full ruby-red. Superripe aromas of raspberry syrup and flowers, with hints of exotic fruits. Sweet, lush and sappy; big and rich. Very ripe fruit syrup flavors lifted by spice and minerals. Velvety ...Read More »
