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 »

2007 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

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.

2014 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Fumé Blanc

Nutty lime and gooseberry provide intrigue and saltiness against bright acidity, making for a complex and compelling impression on the palate."

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.

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.

Aromas of mocha, cedar, dried currant and spice box follow through to a full body, This is well-built, with fine balance and good length. (Web-2011)" K&L Notes: 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. Thus the Trailside Vineyard was born. Aged for three-and-a-half years in a combination of American and French Limousin oak, the 2005 is elegantly perfumed to complement a... 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."

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."

Full-bodied, but remarkably fresh (thanks to the limestone), it possesses 16+% alcohol, but that component is well-concealed by the wine’s fruit and structure.

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby. Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of dried berries and pepper. Densely packed and rich, with great life to its dark berry and mineral flavors owing to perfectly integrated acidity. Very ripe but not at all over the top. Sweet but not thick. An impressively structured Zinfandel that should age well. 93+ (ST)" (6/2005) 87-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dark plum/ruby-hued, the 2003 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard (500 cases, 15.4% alcohol) emerges from a limestone vineyard planted in 1874. This wine has a sour cherry, tart style with dark ruby color, decided minerality, relatively ...Read More »

2002 Turley "Ueberroth" Paso Robles Zinfandel

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "($48; from a vineyard planted in 1885 and owned by ex-commissioner of baseball Peter Ueberroth; this is 16.4% alcohol with a low pH of 3.25) Bright ruby-red. Explosive, musky nose combines cherry, blackberry, cassis, minerals, roasted herbs, spice cake and licorice. Hugely dense and sweet, with exceptional depth of flavor. Boasts outstanding stuffing and a marvelously long, sweet aftertaste. Based on this first vintage, this vineyard should produce zinfandel in the same quality league as Hayne Vineyard, at least in the riper years. (ST)" (5/2004) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A debut e ...Read More »

1997 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I do not believe I have ever tasted a more concentrated, essence-like wine than Turley's 1997 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard. Made from 55-year old vines that yielded only 9.8 tons of fruit for five acres, this opaque black-colored wine is the biggest, richest, most concentrated, tannic wine I have ever tasted. It will need at least a decade to shed some of its ferocious tannin, and will undoubtedly last for 40-50 years. Even more remarkable is its purity and overall equilibrium. Despite its Godzilla-like size, this is an astonishingly concentrated, gorgeou ...Read More »

2000 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The immense 2000 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard (550 cases; 16.7% alcohol) possesses great texture and intensity, in addition to a dense opaque garnet color, and a sweet, concentrated blackberry and raspberry-scented bouquet with hints of pepper, earth, and wood. This is a wine of enormous fruit, body, and palate-staining extract. It should drink well for a decade. The 2000 appears to be slightly more restrained and elegant than previous renditions of this blockbuster Zinfandel. (RP)" (8/2002) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(16.5% alcohol) Good full medium ruby. Deep aromas of cherry syrup, e ...Read More »
