2006 Roederer Estate "L'Ermitage" Anderson Valley Brut

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* All the benefits of maturity come through in this deliciously complex flagship sparkling wine of the French-owned estate. It shows very minute, slow-rising bubbles and a beautiful bouquet of ginger, cinnamon, cherry and fresh croissants. The flavors are layered, intricate, subtle but somehow rich. A lush and seemingly soft texture is supported by fresh acidity that encourages a long and delicate finish. Mature, but not old, it should be great through 2020 or longer."

2005 Berthoud "Ursus Minor" Sonoma Valley Bordeaux Blend

Mike Berthoud worked under Richard Arrowood at Chateau St. Jean, then was winemaker at Arrowood Winery. After 15 years at Arrowood, Mike moved on to Mayo Family Winery. Ursus is comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot. Winemaker's notes: "As always all of the grapes used to produce the blend are grown on the Berthoud estate. Ursus is the Latin word for Bear, while Berthoud is pronounced Bear-2. Just like the bear, Ursus is a muscular wine while maintaining an elegant balance. It is an old world style wine that is...

2004 Heitz Cellar "Trailside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

In the early 1980s, the Heitz Family acquired a marvelous Rutherford vineyard bordered on one side by the Silverado Trail and nudged on the other by the Conn Creek. Thus the Trailside Vineyard was born. This is an opulent wine known for its overall powerful Cabernet varietal expression, lush mouthfeel, and bold flavor. Aged for three-and-a-half years in a combination of American and French Limousin oak, the 2004 "Trailside" is a classic. It is rich in color with intense aromas and flavors of blackberry, raspberry, and vanilla-spiced French oak. Lush frui... Read More »

2010 Stony Hill Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay

Wine Spectator: "Fresh, clean and pithy, with taut tangerine, nectarine and citrus blossom flavors, ending with subtle white fruit notes. (Web-2012)" K&L Notes: According to the winery: "'I believe this is going to be a great wine...it already is!' That's what winemaker Mike Chelini says about our 2010 Chardonnay vintage. As always, it is pale straw in color. Its aromas carry a distinctive minerality backed by green apple, Muscat and lemon zest. The mouth feel combines richness and acidity, and it's that balance of fruit and tartness that we always strive for. Apples, lemon and an ea... Read More »

2001 Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dry and tannic in youth. It’s not a particularly ripe wine, but subtle in meshing blackberry fruit flavors with sweet dried herbs and bitter coffee. They strove for balance and harmony, and succeeded." (3/2005) K&L Notes: Winery-direct Cabernet from a famous longtime Napa Cab producer. At this price this is a tremendous opportunity to try a great Cab with a few years on it. We won't have this around forever so take advantage.

2000 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is a medium-bodied, soft, attractive effort with plenty of herbaceousness along with notes of figs, plums, and red currants. Made in an up-front style, it begs to be drunk over the next 7-8 years." (12/2003) Wine Spectator: "Smooth and polished, with a mix of mature cedar, currant and cherry-scented fruit, framed by a dash of smoky vanilla- and coconut-shaded oak, but finishing with a complex mix of fruit and oak."

Round, dense, rich, full-bodied, and open-knit, its low acid flavors are undeniably appealing. Black olives make an appearance in the wine's aromatics as it sits in the glass.

It is a sexy, sensual, broad, flavorful Cabernet lacking serious depth, but offering attractive fruit, plenty of ripeness, and a big wallop of American oak. Drink it over the next decade.

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley reveals an exaggerated tannin profile along with sweet plum, cherry, and currant fruit as well as notes of licorice, dried herbs, spice box, and toasty American wood.

2002 Mayacamas Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

The thin, rocky volcanic soils at Mayacamas, in the Mt. Veeder district of western Napa, decrease vigor, producing small, concentrated berries. Mild summers and cold winters further intensify flavors. After two and half years in wood (a year and a half in large oak casks, then one year in 60 gallon oak barrels) the wine exhibits classic structure, with balanced acids and tannins. Pure berries fill the nose with undercurrents of Mt. Veeder licorice and bay. On the palate, the fruit tends toward the dark, blackberry and black cherry, with hints of pepper a... Read More »

The 1984 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits the forward, jammy, cassis, and other black fruit character of the vintage, marvelously rich, full-bodied, concentrated flavors, high extract, gobs of glycerin, and moderate tannin in the finish.

The opaque purple-colored 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain offers awesome richness, mindboggling intensity, huge tannin, a massive mouthfeel, and a closed yet formidably long, well-endowed finish. This wine could be put in a tasting of 1994 California Cabernets and not stand out as a 10-year old wine.

The Phelps team kept this cuvee in 100% new French oak for 28 months. Its magnificent structure, intensity and purity of fruit, ripeness, balance combined with authoritative power and the magnetic appeal of this full-bodied, Bordeaux-styled wine are extraordinary.
