The intensely flavorful wines from Rutherford's Trailside Vineyard have been part of the Heitz range since 1989. The vineyard is flanked by the Silverado Trail on one side and Conn Creek on the other and is certified organic. According to the winery: "From first sip to glorious finish, the 2004 Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon captures the essence of this superb vintage.

2007 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (375ml)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest Private Reserves made over the last two decades, this phenomenal wine is obviously still an infant in terms of development, but it exhibits a dense purple color as well as an extraordinary nose of blackberries, white chocolate, licorice, tobacco leaf, smoky barbecue, charcoal and a burning ember-like note reminiscent of a Graves from Bordeaux. A dense, luscious, full-bodied, opulent style, with sweet tannin, this locked and loaded, intense, full throttle Private Reserve should be accessible in 5-6 years and last for 25-30.

2012 Iron Horse "Classic Vintage Brut" Sonoma County Sparkling Wine

A traditional blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, aged an average of four years on the lees in the bottle. Wonderfully rich and creamy, it sends all kinds of memory bells that say "Champagne", though the fruit is unmistakably Sonoma County-Green Valley. It is vintage quality in every sense of the word. The ultimate food wine. Goes with everything--sushi, fried, salty and spicy dishes, rich chicken soup (guaranteed to cure whatever ails you), with popcorn on Oscar night. The best no-fat dessert is Brut and fruit--a handful of fresh berries in summer or sl... Read More »

2002 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Spectator: "Lots of rich, creamy oak and a tasty core of ripe currant, plum and black cherry fruit combine to form this notably complex and concentrated young wine. 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. It is quite ripe, fairly full in the mouth and surprisingly su ...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.

2006 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

That varietal character adds complexity and firm structure to a rich and sleek wine. cellar it for several years to let the oak integrate into fruit, then serve with prime rib."

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 »

2005 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Beringer’s 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve comes from the top selection from all their different holdings, with each vineyard aged separately for close to two years, then blended for quality. This blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc is a gorgeous example of the Private Reserve. Of course, it probably suffers from the fact that Beringer is part of a gigantic international conglomerate, but this is just a stunning wine – inky purple, with plenty of cassis, a hint of espresso, subtle background oak and forest notes.

At once dense and bright; solidly structured yet already quite sweet and showy. I've used the term "dead fruit" to describe wines made from overripe, desiccated grapes; this is the opposite of dead fruit. Finishes very long and sappy, with firm but suave tannins.

Layers of ripe Bing cherries, raspberries and semi-sweet cocoa dominate the mid-palate giving this wine a nice backbone and plenty of structure.

Its dark ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet perfume of blue and black fruits as well as loamy soil scents. Medium to full-bodied with sweet tannin, but none of the herbaceousness or strong, dusty character often found in Alexander Valley Cabernets, this is a well-crafted offering from French consultant, Philippe Melka. Enjoy it over the next 10-12 years." (12/2008)
