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 »

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 »

2012 Schramsberg North Coast Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* A very light-colored wine made from dark grapes, this is a detailed and multilayered beauty. Fresh ginger, cinnamon and brioche aromas lead to an elegant texture and vivid fruit flavors like white cherry and raspberry that energize the palate and linger long on the finish. (JG)" (11/2016) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Mildly creamy yeast is met by energetic fruit in both the nicely autolyzed aromas and flavors of this lively, fairly youthful and complete Blanc de Noirs, and, if the wine comes across as being slightly juicy, it does not cheat to sweetness an ...Read More »

2007 Robert Mondavi "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (375ml)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The full-bodied, powerful, pure 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is another outstanding effort revealing notes of spring flowers, toasty oak, creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. One would have to go back to the 1990, 1991, 2001, or 2002 to find a Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve this impressive. The 2007 should evolve for 20-25 years. 95+ (RP)" (12/2009) 93 points Vinous: "Bright medium ruby.

2012 Au Bon Climat "Relevant-Nuits Blanches au Bouge" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Smelling this, you might think you’re in for a proverbial "oak bomb." It did spend 18 months in new François Frères barrels, but the fruit is the dominant force here. "Spicy, vibrant, polished, pristine," commented Hunter Hammett of Jardinière. Jim Clendenen grew some of this chardonnay at his own Le Bon Climat Vineyard, sourcing the rest from Bien Nacido’s K Block, planted in 1972. It’s impressively rich, yet gains focus and intensity in the finish, the flavors as satisfying as a perfectly ripe apricot but more earthy and complex."

1994 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine Spectator: "A real mouthful of Cabernet any way you taste it. Bold, ripe, rich and flavorful, with complex layers of currant, black cherry and plum flavors nicely accented with cedary oak. Terrific now, best around 1999. From a producer with a superb track record with Cabernet. (JL)" (5/1997) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cabernet is king at Caymus.

2005 Chateau St. Jean "Cinq Cepages" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker: "The medium to full-bodied, dark ruby/purple-tinged 2005 Cinq Cepages Proprietary Red Wine (83% Cabernet Sauvignon) reveals a certain austerity along with complex notes of roasted herbs, sweet red and black currants, and a dusty, loamy character. It will benefit from another year or so of bottle age, and should keep for 10 years." (12/2008)

2012 Domaine Carneros Brut Sparkling Wine

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Mildly creamy with a light veneer of yeast overlying a trim touch of green apple fruit, this carefully made Brut is a wine without extremes, and it maintains a comfortable, gently autolyzed focus from front to back. It is nicely balanced and slightly rounded in feel with a steady stream of tiny bubbles, and its very mannerly Méthode Champenoise statement tags it as a versatile sparkler that is as suited to solo sipping as it is to drinking with milder foods."

(TF)" (9/2016) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "The 2009 vintage grew lush Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the northern California coast, and that vintage character defines Roederer Estate’s tête de cuvée: It’s broad and rich, its ripe apple flavor threaded with the toastiness of barrel-aged reserve lots, while a bright line of acidity gives it a healthy persistence."

1994 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (some soiled, torn labels)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which has been closed since bottling, has just begun to open and display its enormous potential. The saturated black/purple color is followed by aromas of gorgeously pure blackberry and cassis scents. Toasty oak notes are barely discernable given the wine's bombastic display of black fruits, huge, chewy glycerin level, and sensational finish. It will be exciting to follow the evolution of the 1994 and 1995. Modern-day society seems to always be in search of new stars, but this winery has been a super hero for great Cal ...Read More »

2006 Beaulieu Vineyard "Tapestry Reserve" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Proprietary Red Wine Tapestry Reserve (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot) is the finest example of this cuvee I have ever tasted. Flowery, licorice-infused, cassis notes intermixed with forest floor and lead pencil shavings are followed by a layered, impressively built wine with real opulence, lots of red and black fruits, low acidity, and lush tannin. It should drink well for 15+ years." (12/2009) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A terrific wine, delicious and classic in structure.

Delicious from start to finish, with a long, fruity aftertaste and fine-grained tannins. (JL)" (12/2004) 92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "There are arguments to be made that this inviting young wine is a little too forward and too reliant on oak, but for all of its debt to sweet, creamy spice, it is solidly fruity at its heart and has the extract good Cabernet Sauvignon needs.

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.

2002 Turley "Pesenti" Paso Robles Zinfandel

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Zinfandel Pesenti Estate, from a 50-year old site planted on pure limestone, tastes like a classic Chateauneuf du Pape made from Grenache. The 16% alcohol is well-concealed in this 700-case cuvee. A deep ruby color is accompanied by sumptuous aromatics of kirsch liqueur kissed with melted licorice, pepper, and spice. There is tremendous precision, surprisingly good acidity (thanks to the limestone soils), and a heady, rich, full-bodied, impressive finish. This is the finest example yet fashioned from the Pesenti Estate." (12/2003) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep medium ruby ...Read More »

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

The 2003 was produced from the Ink Grade, Dodge and La Jota vineyards. The final blend included 86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13.5% Merlot. Fully mature, it should be consumed over the next 4-5 years.

There are supporting notes of paine grille, anise, violets, anise and smoky oak, with a firm grounding of minerals. Shows some tartness and astringency that strongly suggest time in the cellar. Try beyond 2012." (4/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Rather closed nose at first, with discreet cassis and leafy notes. Much bigger on the palate, really sophisticated and broad.

This blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc is a gorgeous example of the Private Reserve.

Full-bodied and dense, with Montelena’s typical power, tannin and reserved nature, this is a big, rich, formidably endowed red that requires 4-5 years of cellaring.

The sweet vanilla character derived from 20 months in the barrels blends well with the black cherry and blackberry flavors and aromas of the win... Read More »

1994 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This hedonistic Cabernet Sauvignon's saturated purple color is accompanied by an exuberant, sweet, enveloping fragrance of smoky new oak, and jammy blackberry and cassis fruit. In the mouth, this lavishly wooded, black fruit-filled Cabernet is extremely full-bodied, with superb levels of fruit, glycerin, and extract. Like many 1994 Cabernet Sauvignons, it possesses extraordinary equilibrium, with the sweet tannin giving the wine considerable accessibility. The finish lasts for nearly 30 seconds. This will be a fun wine to drink young, but do not discount ...Read More »

1988 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "... The 1988 Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a dark color, plenty of oak in the nose, medium body, very good concentration, and a short, soft finish. (RP)" (10/2003) Wine Spectator: "Pure Caymus, only on a slightly muted scale. The currant, plum, dried cherry, anise and spicy flavors are neatly layered, and the texture and tannins are smooth and polished. Shows fine balance and depth of flavor. (JL)" (11/1998)

2000 Kistler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

"It is easy to get excited about Kistler's Pinot Noirs.", remarked Robert Parker in 1998. "All are aged in 100% new oak, made in small lots (250-500 cases), and bottled with neither fining nor filtration. They are trying to keep the levels of SO2 to minimal dosages so the wines can be as expressive as possible. These Pinot Noirs can easily hold their own in blind tastings with the finest red Burgundies." More than a decade later, Parker's praise continues: "Kistler Vineyards, undeniably one of the world's finest winemaking estates, is run with passionate... Read More »

2002 Pride Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Intensely aromatic and redolent of raspberries, cassis, cocoa and touches of loam, this very rich and powerful young wine follows through with wonderfully concentrated flavors that are every bit as big and fully filled as expected. Although its sheer sense of mass and immediacy will hold it in reasonable stead as a near-term partner to meats on the bone, it has the strength and the structure to grow even better with time and deserves a wait of at least five years if not ten." (12/2004) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The soft 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label exhibits an opaque purple ...Read More »
