2016 Frog's Leap Rutherford Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Jancis Robinson: "Fermented and aged in stainless steel. Rich and floral with more vibrancy than the Massican Sauvignon. Really rather unusual and interesting. Powerful and racy with lots of bright fruit. Pure, refreshing and serious.

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 »

(1/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The three red wines are represented best by the flagship wine, the 2014 Quintessa Proprietary Red from their vineyards in Rutherford. A beautiful floral, black raspberry and blackcurrant nose soars from this dense ruby/purple wine. Medium-bodied, beautifully rich and layered, the emphasis is on discreet yet intens ...Read More »

2015 Halcón "Wentzel Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Wentzel Vineyard is rock solid, with a deep, rich, red and black fruit driven profile that carries plenty of peppery herbs, underbrush and spicy characteristics. There's a hint of underlying floral character, it has impressive density, a seamless texture and good acidity, all suggesting it's going to evolve gracefully."

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.

2012 Heitz "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Decanter: "The just-released vintage of Martha's Vineyard is another youthful classic from Heitz, bursting with notes of black cherry, mint chocolate, cigar box and spice. On the palate the wine is ample, concentrated and fresh, with more intensity and drive than many of the supple wines this easygoing vintage produced. Its inherent complexity needs time to unfurl.

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.

98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Nuanced, with 10% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, this is a quietly powerful wine, smooth and structured and immediate in its beauty, yet possessed of legs to cellar for 20-plus years. Crushed flowers and rocks open on the nose, providing a clutch of minerality, as grippy tannins support red currant, plum and a freshness of persistent acidity. Try to wait on this one. Best 2024 through 2034. *Cellar Selection* (VB)" (5/2018) 97 points Decanter: "Under winemaker Aron Weinkauf, Spottswoode is producing more classical wines than ever, and the 2014 is one of the ...Read More »

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."

Perfectly balanced, smooth and totally correct, it has cherry and chocolate in spades and lots of grip. In the end it’s all about class and performance."

Offers a compelling combination of sweetness of fruit and energy; here a subtle hint of herbs just adds to the appeal of this densely packed, utterly fresh wine. Finishes with very suave tannins and terrific lingering perfume. This firmly structured cool-vintage beauty should continue to evolve positively for at least another decade.

1997 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

Nevertheless, there is plenty to excite. It’s a big wine, dense purple in color with some lightening at the edge, plenty of crème de cassis fruit, lead pencil shavings, sweet vanilla and earth. It is very ripe, full-bodied, opulent and voluptuously textured. This is terrific stuff, hedonistic, showing secondary/tertiary nuances in the aromatics and essentially a full resolution of ...Read More »

2011 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Reminding me of a top 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape (the 2010 Raymond Usseglio Cuvee Imperiale to be exact), the 2011 James Berry Vineyard is a blend of 69% Grenache, 13% Mourvedre, 13% Syrah, 2% Counoise, and a splash of Roussanne, that was aged in a combination of concrete (Grenache) and larger oak puncheons. A fresh, detailed and more elegant example of the cuvee, it offers gorgeous notes of ripe berry fruit, loads of exotic spice, violets, pepper and lavender to go with a full-bodied, beautifully pure and layered profile on the palate.

1993 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Three Stars* From the first of two outstanding back-to-back vintages for Shafer, this intense, positively flamboyant wine is at once both wonderfully deep and extracted yet is surprisingly polished in feel. It shows the top notes of milk chocolate that characterize later Hillside Select bottlings and has an impression of fatness that only full ripeness can bring. Firmed by a fine spine of tannins, it is rounding into shape beautifully right now ..."

2007 Spottswoode "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In 2007, there was another small crop with only 1,700+ cases produced, from a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc. An absolutely staggering nose of blueberries, white flowers, crème de cassis, licorice and graphite is followed by a full-bodied, opulent, multidimensional wine that is seamless. Incredible fruit intensity, purity and depth of character make this one of the great, great classics in the Spottswoode lineup.

This was a year where there was some freaky heat spells, but this wine has come through nicely. Deep bluish purple with notes of blackberry and cassis and charcoal followed by a soft, velvety textured, opulent and full-bodied wine that seems to be approaching full maturity.

The flavors of red and black currants, milk chocolate, figs and smoky vanilla erupt in the mouth, making the tastebuds jump with joy. However, there is also the structure, among the greatest in California Cabs.

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.

2016 Samuel Louis Wines "Albatross Ridge Vineyard" Monterey Pinot Noir

Winemaker's Notes: "Albatross Ridge Vineyard is organically farmed by our good friend Garret Bowlus. Perched at the top of Laureles Grade, northwest of Carmel Valley, at an elevation of 1,250 feet, this site pushes every limit in winegrowing. In the wind and overlooking the Carmel Coast, degree days here are minimal (less than 2000) and so are yields (less than two tons per acre).
