2005 York Creek "Track" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $40)

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 a blend 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 b...

2010 Iron Horse "Classic Vintage Brut" Sonoma County Sparkling Wine

93 points Wine & Spirits: "The 2010 vintage on the North Coast was mostly cool, until a blistering late-August heat wave created sunburn challenges and uneven ripening in many vineyards. At the cool Iron Horse estate in Green Valley, the effects were less drastic. In fact, winemaker David Munksgard’s pinot-dominant Classic Vintage Brut is remarkably pure in 2010, the flavors intense and red-fruited at first, slowly receding in a delicate mousse that lasts on cool scents of chamomile, lemon blossoms and biscuit. The acidity is bright, the texture gentle, evoking the ocean breezes a ...Read More »

1997 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The bouquet is dark and serious, with brooding black-cherry, leather and cedar aromas. In the mouth, flavors of black plums, mint-menthol and tobacco—all with a foresty accent—fill the palate. On the heavy side of medium-weight, with a supple texture, it has a long, toasty finish with fine tannins." (11/2000) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Capturing the curranty, loamy character featured in the better Caymus Cabernets, this generously oaked wine is supple and fleshy in feel, and its pleasant flavors follow the nose to a tee. It shows a bit of tannin at the finish and should age well for ...Read More »

From a producer with a superb track record with Cabernet. (JL)" (5/1997) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cabernet is king at Caymus.

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.

Still quite youthfully tight, but offers solid concentration and very good length. Just a hint of greenness on the end; the firm tannins reach the teeth.

1994 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc) reveals toasty sweet oak in the nose, bombastic levels of black currant fruit and spice along with a hint of mint in the background. Supple and full-bodied, with delirious levels of cedar and unctuously-textured fruit, this fleshy, gorgeously made Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for 14-15 years. The Napa offerings from Silver Oak tend to be less herbaceous and more oriented toward Cabernet Sauvignon's black fruit spectrum than the Alexander Valley cuvees. They are ever ...Read More »

Finishes with very good length and ripe, fairly substantial tannins that grew slightly dry with aeration.

(10/2007) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley offers up a whiff of herbs in its tight nose, followed by chocolatey, spicy, black-cherry, and cassis flavors, an exotic, medium to full-bodied, concentrated palate, and moderate tannin in the lusty finish.

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.

2004 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Three Stars* Proportion and admirable varietal precision are the watchwords of this beautifully made wine, and it reminds that great Cabernet is born from balance and depth more than unbridled ripeness. Lightly dusty with deft touches of briar and loam comfortably tied to its classic, ripe-currant fruit, the wine has plenty of mass but is always light on its feet with integral tannins doing their part in providing structural spine. Wines of this crafting usually tempt early drinking, and, though we would not complain at a glass in a few years, we have n ...Read More »

1998 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Vinous: "Ironically, the 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain from a much weaker vintage than 1997 on paper, is a much more interesting wine. Huge and explosive on the palate, the 1998 boasts serious depth and concentration. Iron, smoke, anise and dark red/blackish fruit all swirl around in the glass in a striking, nuanced Cabernet that is among the wines of the year in Napa Valley. If there is a dark horse in this tasting, the 1998 is it. Beautiful.

2006 Opus One Napa Valley Proprietary Red

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.

2006 Cain "Five" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend

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.

This wine has terrific fresh acidity that buttresses the lemon and orange blossom notes mixed with honeyed pear and hints of peach and nectarine.

This medium to full-bodied, weighty yet structured Pinot will be at its finest between 2005-2015. (RP)" (8/2002) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full ruby-red.

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.

2002 Beaulieu Vineyard "Tapestry Reserve" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Floral cherry scents give a light clarity to the aroma of this blend, while dense cherry and darker berry flavors give it a supple, comforting power.

2000 Chateau St. Jean "Cinq Cépages" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This fine wine, which is at its best now, offers polished flavors of currants, blackberries and herbs, with smoky nuances from oak. It is smooth and polished in the mouth, with a good balance of acids and tannins. Not an ager, but complex and elegant." (5/2004) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Smooth and harmonious, with ripe, rich, supple plum and blackberry fruit, shaded by cedar, anise, black cherry and spice attributes. Firms up and flexes its tannic strength on the finish. Very well-made." (10/2003)

1997 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Fay" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "Tight, young and edgy, in a good way, with rich loamy currant, herb, sage and dusty berry fruit that's focused, well proportioned, deep and persistent. (Web-2008)" Jancis Robinson: "Deep colour, extremely appetising nose, neat dry finish and a great confidence about it. The great deal of work that has been put into this vineyard is now paying off in the bottle. 18/20 points." (3/2002)
