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 »

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."

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. This wine is a Rutherford classic, deeply-hued and powerful, with a lush bouquet of fresh raspberry. Its vibrant core of Cabernet fruit is beautifully wrapped in French oak with a s... Read More »

2005 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Spectator: "This fine new release, with some bottle age, shows signs of subtle maturity. Aromas of mocha, cedar, dried currant and spice box follow through to a full body, This is well-built, with fine balance and good length. (Web-2011)" K&L Notes: 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. Aged for three-and-a-half years in a combination of American and French Limousin oak, the 2005 is elegantly perfumed to complement a... Read More »

(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."

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."

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A great wine in the making, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (just under 10,000 cases produced) possesses a fragrant bouquet of sweet black currants, crushed rocks, earth and background oak. 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. That in itself is atypical of this exuberant, flamboyant vintage.

2006 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Vinous: "A dark, brooding beauty, the 2006 Monte Bello is still very, very young. The aromatics alone are enticing, but the tannins still need time to soften. The 2006 is a masculine, vertical Monte Bello that demands cellaring. Even so, it is pretty impressive today. Scents of lavender, sage, mint and savory herbs add closing flourishes. The perfumed sweetness of the fruit (one of the hallmarks of the very late harvest) remains one of the signatures of the 2006. The 2006 can be enjoyed today or cellared for another 25+ years. 95+ Points (AG)" (7/2016) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...the 2006 ...Read More »

Quite dry and fresh-in fact, almost austere-with a lightly mineral, steely character to the flavors of apple, pear, citrus peel and dried herbs. Boasts very good density of texture and flavor intensity. Hold this for at least a few years before pulling the cork."

2000 Hanzell Sonoma Valley Chardonnay

Hanzell Vineyards Chardonnay is rich, but vibrant. In its youth it is filled with the sharp signature of the chardonnay grape: pear, pineapple, citrus, green apple. Also present when young is a steely, minerally quality and bright citrus crispness. As the chardonnay matures it gains nuances of sweet pear, honey, ripe apple, vanilla, hazelnut, smoke, and toasted almond. Hanzell Vineyards uses almost exclusively Tonnellerie Sirugue barrels from Nuits-St.-Georges, France to age the chardonnay. Approximately 25-40% is allowed to undergo malolactic fermentati...

2005 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One star* If a touch less intense and not quite as nuanced as the rest of its kin, this well-defined, eminently fruity offering is nonetheless long on sweet cherries and is given a lift in overall richness by nicely placed oak. It is medium-full-bodied, a bit plump to start and finished with balanced acidity, and, while it is unfair to call it simple just now, it seems likely to develop a little more reach and complexity with age."

Yet it holds back ever so slightly on the lusciousness by offering crisp, tingling acidity. Orange blossom delights in terms of aroma and flavor, with an accent of fennel, too."

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* One of the first, if not the first, of the proprietarily named Napa Bordeaux blends, Phelps Insignia has been one of California’s greatest Cabs for decades. This is their 30th anniversary bottling, and it’s worthy of the tradition. Ultrarich and smooth, with a mouthfeel that’s pure velvet, it’s fairly thick in tannins now, suggesting cellaring. But it’s huge in blackberry, dark unsweetened chocolate and spicy plum fruit, and will easily hold for a very long time."

1999 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Vinous: "The tasting ends on a high note, as the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is deeply expressive, despite its obvious youth. Here it is the wine's sense of energy that stands out most. Vivid, nuanced and structured, the 1999 is a wine to cellar for another 5-10 years at a minimum to allow the flavors to flesh out. Readers lucky enough to own the 1999 who can wait a few years will be very happy.

You can't talk about Napa Valley wine, or any California wine for that matter, without mentioning the incredible debt owed to Robert Mondavi. His passion and ingenuity are synonmous with Napa's rise. The winery's Reserve Collection wines are designed to be the ultimate expression of terroir, using the finest fruit from the best blocks, and carefully fermenting them to create elegant, long-lived wines. Even at 30+ years old, a well-stored bottled of Mondavi Reserve Cab can show cherry and plum fruit, along with a cadre of secondary nuances.

Fairly firm in structure just now with a fine sense of solidity and hints of suppleness that will turn to velvet with time, the wine keeps ripeness subordinate to fruit throughout. A bit too tight to win the nod for early drinking, it deserves to rest in the cellar for a few more years." (7/2002) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red-ru ...Read More »

But right down the middle of the palate is a deep, intensely powerful stream of perfectly ripened cassis that’s all the proof you need of ageability.

1996 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque blue/purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa boasts an exceptional nose of creme de cassis, minerals, and spice. It takes at least a decade for wines such as this to begin to reveal more identity and vintage character. The cassis/blackberry liqueur-like fruit are present, as are mouthsearing levels of tannin and impressive extract. This blockbuster should be at its peak between 2010-2040. If Godzilla drank California Cabernet Sauvignon, would there be any doubt as to what choice it would be? Anyone who has regularly tasted Randy Dunn's Cab ...Read More »

2006 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Wine & Spirits: "There's something in this wine that's rivetingly true to its place, a classical simplicity, as if smelling cherry blossoms in a coastal forest, or picking raspberries along Westside Road. It has the gentleness of great Russian River pinot, and a bright, happy flavor that lasts for minutes. From five neighboring vineyards, including Rochioli and Flax, with 90 percent of the fruit coming from Williams Selyem estate plantings at Drake and Litton. Winemaker Bob Cabral believes it's his best Russian River Pinot Noir in years." (10/2008) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Captivating, p ...Read More »

2003 Turley "Dragon Vineyard" Howell Mountain Zinfandel

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the finest wines of the vintage in the Turley portfolio is the 2003 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard. This is another Howell Mountain Vineyard that has produced 350 cases of wine (16.2% alcohol) that, aromatically, reminded me (of a) superb Pomerol. Black raspberry, plum, and floral scents are accompanied by a deep ruby/purple color as well as exceptional black fruit characteristics intermixed with floral notes and a hint of minerals. This is a complex, full-bodied, opulently textured Zinfandel with purity and stature. (RP)" (2/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Reticent but superripe ...Read More »

1997 Jarvis "Lake William" Napa Valley Proprietary Red

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Lake William Estate Proprietary Red (a blend of 46% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot that was aged 14 months in new French oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered) exhibits an impressively saturated dark ruby color, and a cedary, black currant nose with toast and minerals in the background... Although pure, cleanly made, and stylish, it is restrained. It can be consumed over the next 10-15 years." (1/2000) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Aromas of raspberry, cocoa powder, mocha, licorice and spicy oak. Plump, generous and pli ...Read More »

2001 Williams Selyem "Allen Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Nearly as good as the Flax bottling, opening with a gorgeous aroma of mushroom, tobacco, coffee, Asian spice, cherry, blackberry and oaky vanillins. Like all the current releases, it’s very dry, but rich in sweetly ripe fruit and sweet oak. A little sharp now in acids, which should enable this beauty to age effortlessly through the decade." (5/2004) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Delicious. Elegant and spicy, delicate style, with vibrant, succulent black cherry and raspberry flavors that are rich, intense and concentrated, turning elegant and supple on a long, lively finish.

1996 Snowden Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Snowden's 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon (623 cases of a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot) offers a dark plum/ruby color as well as sweet aromas of chocolate, coffee beans, and cherries. Spicy, rich, and elegant for its plumpness, with good fat and a chewy texture, it will drink well for 7-8 years." (12/2000) Wine Spectator: "Still in good shape. Firm and intense, showing earthy currant and mineral, with chewy tannins. Gains complexity on the finish, which ends dry and leathery. The best of three bottles.--1996 California Cabernet ...Read More »
