Heitz Cellar "Ink Grade" Napa Valley Port (375ml)

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 »

2004 Heitz Cellar "Trailside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The intensely flavorful wines from Rutherford's Trailside Vineyard have been part of the Heitz range since 1989.

According to the winery: "From first sip to glorious finish, the 2004 Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of this superb vintage.

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 »

2005 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points John Gilman: "The 2005 Martha’s Vineyard has an absolutely flamboyant nose that soars from the glass in a celestial blend of red and black cherries, mint, raw cocoa, woodsmoke, Rutherford Dust and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very, very pure, with a rock solid core of sappy fruit, beautiful complexity, a very generous attack, impeccable focus and balance and stunning length and grip on the ripely tannic and perfectly poised finish. This tastes as if it could be a young release of the 1975 or 1978, it is that classic in size and shape, despite ...Read More »

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."

2005 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points John Gilman: "The folks at Heitz are very bullish about the quality of the Trailside bottling, and given the quality of the fruit here, I can see why this is the case. But this wine has a bit of work to do carrying one hundred percent new oak, and at this young age it is still rather marked by its oak component on both the nose and (to a lesser degree) the palate. To be fair to this wine, it is three years younger than the ’02 Bella Oaks that was tasted alongside of it, and consequently it has had nowhere near the same amount of time to integrate its wood. In any case ...Read More »

2014 Heitz Cellar Napa Valley Chardonnay

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.

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.

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)

The wine was raised in eighty percent new wood this vintage, but carries its wood component quite well.

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 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Syrah

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Bone Rock, which comes from the James Berry Vineyard (82% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre, and the rest Grenache, also aged 28 months in a combination of smaller barrels, demi-muids, and pungeons), is super as well. Like its late-released sibling, it has an inky/purple color to the rim and an extraordinary, soaring set of aromatics consisting of spring flowers, pepper, graphite, blackberry and blueberry fruit with hints of raspberry and licorice and jus de viande as well. The extraordinary freshness and elegance of this wine leads to a minerality that even ...Read More »

2002 Turley "Mead Ranch" Atlas Peak Zinfandel

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 »

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. (LPB)" (4/2017) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Measured oak cradles spicy pepper and a richness of vanilla-kissed black cherry and blackberry in this bold, full-bodied wine, that yes, would pair deliciously with wild boar." (3/2017) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Briary and well-built, with b ...Read More »

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The terrific 2001 Zinfandel Tofanelli Vineyard (15.3% alcohol) reveals a superb nose of caramel, black fruits, spice, and licorice. With seamlessly integrated tannin and acidity, this full-bodied, concentrated 2001 has no hard edges, and cuts a generous, expansive feel on the palate without any heaviness or hotness. (RP)" (10/2003) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, plush, full-bodied style that packs in lots of complex flavors, built around ripe plum, blackberry, raspberry and peppery spice. Nicely oaked, too, though certainly not overdone, finishing with a long, ripe, supple finis ...Read More »

1999 Turley "Moore Earthquake Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 1999 Zinfandel Moore (Earthquake) Vineyard (490 cases, 16.4% natural alcohol) possesses an opaque dense ruby/purple color. It offers explosive yet elegant aromas of blackberries, pepper, and black cherries as well as full body, low acidity, and magnificent fruit concentration. A long, intense, smooth, peppery personality will be a crowd-pleaser. A remarkable effort, it will develop even more complexity over the next 7-10 years. (RP)" (10/2001) 92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby. Crystallized berries, pepper, flint and minerals on the nose. Sweet, lush and minerall ...Read More »
