2012 Iron Horse "Wedding Cuvée" Green Valley of Russian River Valley Brut Sparkling Wine

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "An offering meant to toast all manner of celebrations, this wine wows, blending 78% Pinot Noir with 22% Chardonnay in a near-perfect union. Dry and beautifully floral, it opens in a bouquet of marzipan, peach and honey. The mousse is fine, while supporting acidity lends a lemon peel and grapefruit lift. The memory imprinted on the palate will linger long after all the toasts to the happy couple—or whatever else you’re celebrating—have been made. —V.B." (3/2017) K&L Notes: The "Wedding Cuvée" is the very latest iteration of this first-class California sparkling wine, ... Read More »

2012 Chalone "Estate Grown" Chalone Chardonnay (Elsewhere $26)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Done in a more oxidized style, this wine shows marzipan, dried apricot, browned butter, dried pineapple and a gunmetal flint character on the nose. The palate is very focused, with flavors of preserved lemon, lime rind, sage-roasted chicken and a faint minty element. (MK)" (11/2015) Wine Spectator: "Trim and leesy, with enough richness and intensity midpalate on to sustain itself, showing a creamy touch to the fig, apricot and green apple flavors.

2012 Chalone "Estate Grown" Chalone Pinot Blanc (Previously $35)

Monterey's first winery sits atop the Gavilan Mountains and boasts vines planted in the highly-desirable granite and limestone soils found there. Perhaps this is why winemaker Robert Cook says, Chalone isn’t a label; it’s a place on earth.

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."

2012 Au Bon Climat "Historic Vineyards Collection-Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay

95 points Wine & Spirits: "*Voted Top United States Chardonnay of the Year and the Top Best Buy in United States Chardonnay of the Year* Jim Clendenen made his first Bien Nacido Chardonnay in 1989. He knows his way around the sprawling hillside and benchland vineyard better than just about anyone, and makes this exclusively from K Block, a bench of shale-laced gravelly loam that was planted in 1973. The block was grafted over to Chardonnay in the 1990's, leaving the roots intact, so the grapes continue to benefit from some of the oldest root systems in Santa Barbara County.

(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 »

2001 T Vine Napa "T" Red Blend

Simply put, one of the best Cabernets in the store right now. We love all of Greg Brown's wines, and this offering is his top-of-the-line red. Full of breed, balance and juiciness. Like the others, it is delicious upon release, but we recommend buying at least one for later, too. Tiny production and a cult following means this '01 Cab blend won't be around for long.

2006 Opus One Napa Valley Proprietary Red

95 points James Suckling: "Sage and mint in the nose, it is Opus style. Full bodied and layered, with polished tannins and wonderful length. This is tight, but fascinating still. This wine has a good future, very juicy, and will only keep getting better." (2/2011) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 comes across as a bigger, more structured wine than the 2007. The tannins are bolder, more dramatic, and more present. The wine displays impressive depth, not the velvety elegance of the 2007, but is a more muscular wine that begs for 2-3 years of cellaring and should drink well for 20-25 years.

This big, full-bodied, opulent, layered, multidimensional 2001 needs 2-3 years of cellaring. It should drink well for 1-2 decades.

The wine is firmly framed and conveys a clear impression of substance and depth, and, while its hard-to-miss acidity may leave it a little taut and tight at the moment, there is no question but that it has very good places to go."

2006 Staglin Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Three Stars* This immense, deeply fruited, lavishly oaked wine is all about the future, and, despite showing loads of highly concentrated, black currant character, it is prohibitively tannic for near term drinking. It is also as rich and as precise in its varietal Cabernet Sauvignon focus as any wine tasted in some time. Everything about this one speaks to depth and longevity, and it is likely to need a decade or more before hitting its stride. But, few wines are its equal for classic flavors even now and fewer still will match its progress in the fulln ...Read More »

The straw color reveals a greenish hue, and the wine bursts from the glass with notes of exotic fruits, wet stones, limes and white peaches. It has a kinship to a great Coche-Dury Corton-Charlemagne.

2006 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The soft, round 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa possesses good berry fruit, seductive tannins, and minimal depth. It represents a very fine glass of Cabernet for enjoying over the next 6-7 years. (RP)" (12/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red-ruby. Black fruits, licorice and exotic spices on the somewhat medicinal, uncompromising nose. Then sweeter in the mouth than the nose suggests, with dark berry, licorice and mint flavors joined by tobacco and graphite. Not complex but finishes with good lift and length-and not at all cooked. (ST)" (6/2009)

1985 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
1985 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red with some amber at the rim. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, raspberry, truffle, underbrush and flint. Sweet and a bit wild, showing terrific retention of candied raspberry and plum fruit. This concentrated wine is a step up in texture and depth of fruit from the earlier vintages.

1996 Cardinale Napa County-Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
1996 Cardinale Napa County-Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cardinale is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot, of which 62% came from Napa and 38% from Sonoma. Just under 3,000 cases were produced. It is also a top rank wine, and a star of the vintage. A saturated purple color is followed by licorice, cedar, fruit cake, and black currant aromas. Full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated, with low acidity but high tannin, this young, muscular classic should have fabulous aging potential. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2028. (RP)" (1/2000) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby-red. Bordeaux-like aromas of roasted plum, currant, s ...Read More »
