2012 Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $73)

95 points James Suckling: "This has a lovely dusty character with currant, tile and sweet tobacco. Full body, chewy and beautiful tannins. Wonderful austerity yet softness. Flavorful finish. Delicious now but shows finesse and length. Better in 2019 but so gorgeous already." (5/2016) K&L Notes: Spring Mountain Vineyard Winery as it exists today is actually the composition of three formerly separate vineyards and wineries, known as Miravalle, Chevalier, and La Perla, that date back to the late 1800s. In the early to mid-1990s, the current owners of the winery purchased the three vineyard sites ... Read More »

2012 DuMol "Jack Robert's Run" Sonoma Coast Syrah

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "***Three Stars*** Intensely spicy with a wealth of pepper and game tagging it as Syrah in no uncertain terms yet also wonderfully deep in ongoing blackberry-like fruit, this exquisitely structured wine manages to be big, balanced and uncommonly well-polished all at the same time. It is showy in some ways and still nascent in others, and it impresses as a wine with great places to go. It would be a shame to pour it before its fifth or sixth birthday, and it should continue to grow for at least twice as long."

2012 The Mascot Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

From the producer: "Although I grew up running around the winery, hand-turning de-stemmers, and eating grapes off the vines in our backyard, I never thought I’d discover my own passion in making wine.

2012 The Mascot Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 The Mascot Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend. From the producer: "Although I grew up running around the winery, hand-turning de-stemmers, and eating grapes off the vines in our backyard, I never thought I’d discover my own passion in making wine. My family has been in the business longer than I’ve been around, but it was only a handful of years ago that curiosity led me beyond the event horizon of this world. It began with the experience of learning the complexities of blending wine in 2008, and progressed steadily until I found myself working in the cellar, handling barrel fermentation throughout the harvest of 2012. Made from the younger vines of Harlan Estate, BOND, and Promontory, The Mascot shares a unique glimpse into the evolution of our winegrowing estates. The Mascot began early on as an experiment, after talking the family and winemaking team into sparing a few barrels of wine - produced from our younger vines - to explore a blend of my own.

2012 Joseph Swan "Mancini Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Subdued and delicately ripe, this wine offers understated notions of leather, chocolate and blackberry bramble, with an electric undercurrent of fresh-squeezed citrus. Light and bright, this is a study in holding back, with complexity at its core. (VB)" (10/2017) K&L Notes: A classic old vine Russian River Valley Zinfandel made from a vineyard planted in the early 1920s, which would have made the vines just about "old vine" 45 years later when Joe Swan made his first vintage--of Zinfandel.

2012 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Famed for their original, cult Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Heitz acquired their Trailside site, located adjacent the Silverado Trail route through the eastern side of Napa Valley, in the 1980s. Trailside generally produces a more "modern," bolder, intense Napa style of Cabernet. The winery's note: "Our 2012 Trailside proves the sheer beauty of the vintage with a glorious depth of rich Cabernet character. Deep shades of purple saturate the glass and compelling aromas emerge: fresh blackberries with a whisper of caramel and clove. This wine is op... Read More »

Very long and mind-bending. A tribute to the vintage. Drink or hold. A long life ahead of it." (11/2015) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship wine of the estate in reds is their Insignia, which has been one of the great Bordeaux blends made in California since the debut vintage in 1974. It usually has 30+ years aging potential, even in lighter vintages, of which the 2012, 2013 and 2014 are decidedly not. The 2012 ...Read More »

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2012 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (100RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard, which will probably be released in a few months, displays great minerality, notes of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, poached pear, and white flowers as well as a touch of quince. A wine of great intensity, yet incredibly ethereal elegance, this light greenish gold-colored wine is full-bodied, stunningly rich, and altogether remarkable. When you consider that they use 100% new French oak and 100% heavy toast for both their Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, it is remarkable how little oak appears in these wines.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 La Muse, which is 85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec, is a smaller cuvée of 1,840 cases. The wine has plenty of spice box, cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake and Asian plum sauce, along with black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. Ripe, round, full-bodied and opulent, this is a wine that can be drunk now or cellared for another three decades. Interestingly, the alcohol levels are not all that high in any of these wines, with most of them rarely exceeding 14.3%. (RP)" (10/2015) 94-97 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(85% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec): Deep ruby. Wonderfu ...Read More »

2012 Eric Kent "Stiling Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Wispy accents of sweet hardwoods and a touch of dried flowers sit lightly atop a full serving of nicely formed, optimally ripened cherry-like fruit in the nose here, and careful oak similarly goes on to play a supporting role in the wine's concentrated, solidly varietal flavors. This one joins a good many of its vintage mates in being both outgoing and yet structured for keeping, and, if not a wine that will in any way punish early drinking, it is a Pinot that clearly can grow."

2012 Kistler "Durell" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard offers up plenty of tropical pineapple and more of the orange marmalade and citrus oil notes in a full, deep and fleshier style than the McCrea. Its touch of wet rocks and its good acidity and precision give the wine a well-defined style. It should drink well for 4-5 years. (RP)" (1/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich and refreshing, delivering a vibrant core of zesty tangerine, white peach, nectarine and lemon blossom flavors that are full-bodied and assertive without being weighty. Ends with good intensity. Drink now through 2020. (JL) ...Read More »

2012 Trombetta "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Dark, concentrated and grippy, this is a sizable Pinot from a cool, coveted vineyard. Juicy blue and blackberry fruit dominate on the nose and palate, surrounded by exotic cedar, clove, oak and toffee, a swipe of vanilla lurking behind the front flavors. The big tannins will appreciate time in the cellar, through 2022-2024." (2/2015)

2012 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

96 points John Gilman: "The 2012 Alpine Vineyard Chardonnay from Kevin Harvey and his very talented team at Rhys Vineyards is another absolutely brilliant bottle of Chardonnay. The wine is a touch riper than the Horseshoe bottling, coming in at 13.3 percent alcohol and offering a stellar bouquet of pear, white peach, iodine, a touch of acacia blossom, a bit of crème patissière, complex soil tones and a nice base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and snappy, with a superb core of fruit, laser-like focus, great mineral drive and a very long, very young ...Read More »

2012 Williams-Selyem "Drake Estate Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay (Previously $100)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Those who think they prefer anything but Chardonnay may be convinced otherwise with this wine. It is so powerfully evocative in crisply rendered Meyer lemon and tangerine notes, with aromas of fresh white flowers teasing provocatively on the nose. Seamless and seductively bright in acidity, it glides down the palate, hinting at a richness that never becomes overdone. (VB)" (4/2015) 93 points Vinous: "Green-tinged gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented scents of pear, tangerine and lemon zest, with a hint of iodine in the background. Dry, nervy and precise but showing very good conc ...Read More »

2012 Bedrock Wine Company "Sodini" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Deeply pitched dark berry preserve, licorice, incense and floral scents are lifted by a zesty mineral nuance. Sweet, penetrating blackberry and blueberry flavors show excellent clarity and pick up a spiciness with air. Powerful but lively wine with very good finishing clarity and youthful tannic grip. This site, which is planted to head-trained vines, dates back to 1905." (5/2014) 93 points Vinous: "The 2012 Zinfandel Sodini Vineyard is one of the richest, most explosive wines in the range. Dark red fruit, iron, savory herbs, smoke, tobacco and mineral notes inf ...Read More »

2012 Arnot-Roberts "Coastlands Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard, from Ross Cobb’s vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, is a surprisingly huge wine for this site, largely because of the richness of the year. Rich, textured and totally beautiful, the Coastlands is another wine that will be fascinating to follow. Autumn leaves, sweet red cherries and a hint of hard candy are layered into the rich, voluptuous finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027." (4/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(made entirely with whole clusters): Vivid red. Mineral-accented aromas of cherry, rhubarb and blood orange, with a hint of rose oi ...Read More »

2012 Peter Michael "Cuvée Indigène" Knights Valley Chardonnay

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Chardonnay Cuvée Indigène was inspired by Helen Turley in 1988. Essentially a winemaker’s barrel selection from the finest lots of the Old Wente clone, the dominate clonal component of all these single-vineyard wines, it is fermented with natural yeasts, and has always been one of Peter Michael’s finest Chardonnays. Utter perfection, the 2012 Chardonnay Cuvée Indigène (460 cases) possesses copious notes of orange marmalade, apricot, crème brûlée, honeysuckle, citrus oil and nectarines. This beautiful, seamless, exotic, full-bodied, compelling Chardon ...Read More »
