2014 Anthill Farms Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2014 Anthill Farms Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

VINEYARD NOTES: "This appellation is widely described as “sprawling” as it encompasses half or more of the county. Our fruit comes from two of the coolest, most coastal parts of this appellation: the low coast, west of Sebastopol on the edge of the Petaluma Gap; and the high coast, the first or second ridge inland from the ocean farther to the north. These sites are united by the direct influence of the Pacific‘s cool, marine air, delaying ripening well into October."

2008 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2008 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Monte Bello is striking. It is a decidedly muscular Monte Bello endowed with layers of dark fruit. Tobacco, mint, asphalt and crushed rocks develop in the glass, adding tons of complexity and finesse. A long, saline finish rounds things out beautifully. In 2008 the cold growing season stretched into October and the wine definitely has the feel of a cool vintage. The spring frost and the second year of drought conditions lowered yields significantly. Yields were just 1.25 tons per acre on average, but some of the older vineyards came in at less t ...Read More »

2014 Tor Kenward "Cimarossa Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon New!
2014 Tor Kenward "Cimarossa Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another high-elevation site for Tor Kenward is his 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Cimarossa Vineyard from a steep vineyard planted at a 2,100-foot elevation on Howell Mountain. This vineyard is often used in the Beringer Private Reserve program. This wine is one of the more backward of the 2014s, with high tannin, full body, loads of mulberry, graphite, licorice and blue and black fruits. It is rich and would probably benefit from several years of bottle age and keep for 25-30 years. Tor Kenward is using his vast experience in the wine industry and impressive ...Read More »

2004 Darioush Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Three Stars* Darioush Khaledi has proven to be the master of the rich, fleshy, full-bodied style, and once again, his winery delivers a bottling with a virtually unrivalled combination of intensity, drama and hedonistic pleasure. In its youth, the wine is at once both open and brooding, and its invitingly sensual aromas and flavors, while seeming to ask for early enjoyment, are far from fully developed. One can easily partner this lush wine with juicy filet mignons or a standing rib roast, but putting it in the cellar for half a decade or more seems the ...Read More »

It will benefit from a few years of age, but it can be enjoyed early on with hearty hunks of beef.'"

New leather, smoke and spices are some of the many notes that develop in the glass, adding complexity and character. This is an especially powerful, brooding vintage for the Howell Mountain.

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Three Stars* In terms of concentration and weight this very generous working is right in step with its kindred AVA mates, yet, for all of its considerable substance, it is not overly beholden to ripeness and is always governed by constant and very keen Pinot fruit. It is both full and balanced, and it keeps its tannins in check. It serves as inarguable proof that size is far from being a de facto fault, and we expect it will impress even more with a few years of age."

It’s very young now, with immature raspberry, cola, rum punch, balsamic, mushroom and Asian spice flavors, but decanting and slow warming in the glass help elevate it. Nonetheless, your best bet is the cellar. Best after 2008, and for many years after, depending on how old you like your wines."

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Tierra Roja came in out-of-bottle at the top of its range, which is always a good sign. This is a 4-acre vineyard on the red soil hillsides, just below Dalla Valle in the Oakville corridor. This is a sexy, beautiful, fragrant wine with plenty of scorched earth, blackcurrants and licorice, but copious quantities of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit.

Tor Kenward uses the middle section of this vineyard that was earlier used by Ann Colgin for her Herb Lamb bottlings. This wine has always been noted by its blueberry component, touch of licorice and underbrush. This wine has all of that, medium to full body, beautiful acidity and loads of fruit.

His vineyard faces north toward Mount St. Helena and east toward the Palisades—not a house or a road in sight, only trees, meadows and craggy rocks left by the volcano. Ideally, you’d come back as a Zinfandel vine. The vineyard’s cool morning sun and volcanic soils grow Zin with racy energy, a sensation that’s captured beautifully in this 2013.

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.

Everything about this one speaks to depth and longevity, and it is likely to need a decade or more before hitting its stride. But, few wines are its equal for classic flavors even now and fewer still will match its progress in the fullness ...Read More »

2002 Rudd "Oakville Estate" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend New!
2002 Rudd "Oakville Estate" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Wow, what a fantastic wine. Bursts open with scads of fine French oak, cedar and char, with a rôti quality riding high over the cherries, cassis and white chocolate. So good, it’s scary. Rich, long, powerful in cassis and cherry fruit, yet wonderfully firm and tannic..." (11/2005) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still firm, backward and atypically youthful for a 2002, Rudd’s blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot displays enormous promise, but it needs to be forgotten for another 3-5 years. Its inky/blue/purple color is followed by ...Read More »

2007 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (Previously $480)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Utter perfection, and one of the most profound Rhone Ranger wines I have ever tasted... As with many prodigious wines, the extraordinary freshness, purity, equilibrium, and singularity of this effort is breathtaking. Its dense purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary, incredibly pure, all enveloping, intense, sweet nose of black raspberries, kirsch, spring flowers, spice box, and pepper. Full-bodied with not a hard edge to be found, it is stunningly concentrated with unreal purity, a voluptuous texture, and remarkable freshness for a wine of such ...Read More »

2013 Turnbull "Black Label" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2013 Turnbull "Black Label" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label flirts with perfection, with gorgeous graphite, blueberry and blackberry fruit and a full-bodied mouthfeel. The wine is light on its feet for such massive extraction. With not a hard edge to be found, this is truly brilliant winemaking from a great terroir. This is long, rich powerful and certainly seems to have 30 years of upside. Forget it for five years and drink it over the following 30+ years. (RP)" (12/2015) 95 points James Suckling: "Black licorice, blueberry and tar aromas. Full body plus soft and velvety tannins that are polished and ...Read More »

1979 Kenwood "Artist Series" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
1979 Kenwood "Artist Series" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Spectator: "This wine has always had a cedary edge to the ripe cherry, mint and currant flavors, and it's still aging quite well..." (8/1999) K&L Notes: The fifth Kenwood "Artist Series" release features"Sea-Wolf at the Lighthouse," by Joseph Neary, the Sea-Wolf being a sleek sailboat racing through the scene. Kenwood's tasting notes: "The 1979 Artist Series is composed entirely of the best Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the Steiner and Laurel Glen vineyards high on Sonoma Mountain, as well as from the Los Chamizal Vineyard located near the town of Sonoma. Each lot was aged sepa... Read More »

2004 Arietta "H Block Hudson" Napa Valley Red Blend Back In Stock!
2004 Arietta "H Block Hudson" Napa Valley Red Blend

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby-red. More balsamic and less primary on the nose than the 2005, offering an essence of currant and smoky earth and a whiff of cabernet franc leafiness. Slightly edgy acidity and serious, somewhat drying tannins suppress the wine's underlying sweetness of fruit today, making it tough going. This very backward wine is ultimately dominated by its broad, powerful tannins." (6/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This 70% Cabernet Franc/30% Merlot blend offers spice box, cedar, clove and baking spices along with red and black currants that emerge from this medium-bodied, pleasant, ...Read More »

2007 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend Back In Stock!
2007 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The late-released 2007 Heart Stone, which spent 28 months in a combination of barrels, demi-muids, and pungeons, turned out to be a final blend of 65% Syrah, 21% Grenache, and 14% Mourvedre. Like all of Justin Smith’s 2007s, it is a riveting, sensational wine that carries its heavy weight, profound richness, and intensity very gracefully. That is no doubt an effect of the limestone soils of this region. Blackberry and smoked meats as well as some garrigue and floral notes are followed by a dense, rich, pure, multi-layered wine that just screams for grill ...Read More »

93 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, massive, mouthful of Cabernet with loads of cassis, currants, plum and cherry that's very bright, concentrated and intense, framed by tannin and oak. A long-termer with an underlying feel of elegance. Another terrific Artist Series." (11/87) From the winery: "Kenwood Vineyards’ tenth Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon release features "Pacific Coast," by Alan Wolton. The grapes from the 1984 harvest are classic Sonoma Valley vintage, marked by a moderately warm growing season and optimum levels of grape maturity and comp... Read More »

1985 Kenwood "Artist Series" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Spectator: "Deep and intense, with a sense of elegance surrounding the black cherry, mint and curant flavors. The tannins are firm and gritty but the fruit fights through on the finish." (02/89) According to Robert Parker: "This wine appears to have evolved little since I first tasted it after bottling and release. The color remains a saturated dark ruby with light brick at the edge. Although full-bodied and tannic, with noticeable oak and impressive extraction, the wine is closed and not yet ready for prime time drinking. Give it another 4-5 years of cellaring; it ...Read More »
