2005 Three Dog Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

A couple of years back I started a conversation with a local vineyard manager that said he had some great back vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Santa Cruz Mountains. Obviously I was incredibly intrigued and asked him who the producer was. His response was Three Dog Vineyard. I had never heard of it or ever saw any of the wines. I couldn't find anything on-line either so I was both intrigued and cautious. When he finally stopped by with a couple of different vintages I was shocked. Here was top notch Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet that nobody knew a... Read More »

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.

2012 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Chardonnay (375ml)

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Vibrant, young, green apple fruit is the driving force of this sleek, nicely made opus with mildly toasty, lightly laid-on oak a constant, if comparatively quiet, companion. 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."

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brut Rosé is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay aged at least four years on the yeast before being disgorged. With strawberries and framboise, this is a delicious, sexy and beautifully light-salmon/pinkish colored sparkling wine with good body, loads of fruit, and plenty of effervescence.

Wonderfully sweet and stuffed with material; distinctly softer and fatter than the H Block bottling. Complex flavors of currant, plum, leather, licorice and minerals. Perhaps even longer on the finish than the H Block though not as fine, finishing with substantial dusty tannins. 'A wilder, crazier, growling kind of a wine,' admits winemaker John Kongsgaard.

2012 Domaine Carneros Brut Sparkling Wine

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."

1995 Kalin Cellars "Cuvee CH" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

The 1995 vintage produced roasted nut aromas combined with crisp apple-like flavors to produce a terroir-driven, Meursault style Chardonnay. The scents and flavors of this wine emanate from the marine fogscape of the Sonoma Coast, and the marine shale and limestone terroir. These rich flavors and aromas are reminiscent of a freshly baked yellow plum tart, ground cinnamon, roasted almonds, etc. The unusually favorable fruit-acid structure of this cool climate wine will allow for the sustained development of bottle complexity.

2006 Cain "Five" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend

Jancis Robinson: "Dark purplish crimson. Appealing juicy fruit with a little overlay of walnuts on the nose. Some personality and a fruity core. Quite dusty and full blooded with slightly rustic tannins. Distinctive! I like the fact that the winemaker has not been afraid of tannin. Quite burly rather than super smooth. Out of the mould – so therefore mountain fruit..? I just wonder whether the fruit won’t fade a little bit too early for the tannins? Dry finish. But this is serious artisanal wine.

It is still an amazingly young wine that came from old vines on the famous St. George rootstock that did not require replanting because of the phylloxera epidemic that swept through Napa in the late 1980's and 1990's.

2005 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

90 points from Wine Enthusiast: "For such a large production wine, this Merlot has a lot going for it.
