2012 Provenance Napa Valley Merlot Top Pick!
2012 Provenance Napa Valley Merlot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Merlot Barrel Select ratchets up things rather nicely, with more mocha, black cherry fruit, slightly more body, deeper color and more substance and depth. This wine should turn out to be quite nice. (RP)" (10/2014)

2012 Heitz Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Heitz Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

In the 1960s, Heitz Wine Cellars was part of the new wave of the Napa Valley, and their sought-after Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was perhaps one of the first "cult" Cabs. Today, Heitz is better known as one of the "old guard" of Napa, hewing to a classic and balanced style of Cabernet that's aged for half of its elevage in large oak ovals and tanks--the way it was in decades past. Producer Note: "Our 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet encapsulates the freshness of a near-perfect growing season. Aromas of fresh-picked blackberry and cassis abound from thi... Read More »

2012 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

"Blue Chip." That is always one of the phrases I use when talking about the Silver Oak Napa Valley bottling. Year after year Silver Oak produces some of the most reliably delicious wine that Napa has to offer. It might not be most "culty," nor the highest rated on someone's 100 point scale but it is always exactly what you know it to be: rich, powerful, heavily fruited, laced with spicy oak and full of structure but still enjoyable upon release. Perfect for gifts, important client meetings, special dinners and a great mid-term wine for any smart collecto... Read More »

2012 Lyeth Sonoma County Meritage

Wine & Spirits: "A velvety blend based on Merlot, this is simple but clean, its strawberry-red fruit lifted, the structure easy rather than gripping. It’s light enough for roast chicken." (8/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This wine has a foundation of 57% Merlot, followed by almost equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, then smaller percents of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Dry and beautifully floral, it opens in a bouquet of marzipan, peach and honey. The mousse is fine, while supporting acidity lends a lemon peel and grapefruit lift.

2012 Robert Sinskey "POV" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Robert Sinskey's POV is a Bordeaux-style blend from Los Carneros, on the southerly reach of Napa Valley, by the San Pablo portion of the San Francisco Bay--better known for Pinot Noir. For the style that he's going for, Sinskey can make it work: "POV 2012 is that wine you take to dinner to not just impress, but to enjoy.

It is supple to start and keeps heat nicely in check while showing a good bit of grippy, young back-palate tannins, and, if not inordinately rough at the finish, it is a Zinfandel that fully deserves age.

2012 Joseph Swan "Mancini Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

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. The winery's tasting note for the 2012: "Blackberry, white pepper floral hints, bit of lushness. Complex balanced, elegant. A classic old style zinfandel made with new age sensibilities.

Cask is 85 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance mostly Cabernet franc and a little Merlot. In the past, the team at Inglenook described the difference between their two top Cabernets as Rubicon presenting the riper black fruits of Rutherford, and Cask focusing on red fruits. In 2012, the situation for me was reversed; Cask had the darker fruit at our tasting, still cool in tone and not heavily ex ...Read More »

2012 Peterson "Zero Manipulation" Mendocino Red Blend (Previously $15)

Long before it was a buzzword in natural wine circles, quirky and irreverent Peterson Winery was touting their "Zero Manipulation" red wine, bearing the distinctly unnatural image of a "jackalope" on the label. Sourced from the Tollini Vineyard north of the winery in Mendocino County, this is a zippy "bistro wine" made with Carignane, Grenache and Syrah. Unfined and unfiltered — naturally!

2012 Tonti "Old Vine" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

From 90-year-old vines on the eastern edge of the Russian River Valley. With fantastic southern exposure, the grapes luxuriate in the sun and build a voluptuous ripeness. The vines are organically dry farmed, which tends to decrease tonnage but increase concentration in the fruit. In the glass, you'll find aromas of brambly berry fruits, black tea leaves, nectarines, cloves and creamy toasted oak. Bright acidity and silky tannins make this a hedonistic dream.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (93RP, 92VN, 92WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The straight 2012 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley is a gorgeous Pinot. Subtle and nuanced, yet no lightweight, it offers layers of mulled red and black fruits, cinnamon, loamy earth and dried flowers on the nose. Every bit as good on the palate, with a medium to full-bodied, supple and layered profile, it has excellent mid-palate depth, a fabulous texture and a clean finish. It's already hard to resist, but it will evolve nicely through 2022. This was another stacked lineup by the team of Dan Kosta and Michael Browne. All of these wines showed the more approachable style of the 2012 vintage, and had seamless, elegant characters. They're beautiful now, but I suspect they will evolve nicely given their overall balance. (JD)" (10/2014)

2012 White Rock Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous wine. Dark and inviting, the 2012 offers notable depth and creaminess, both of which add to the wine's near-term appeal. Dark plum, earthiness, cedar, spice and new leather are all pushed forward. The tannins are already quite soft, so readers won't have to wait too long before enjoying this delicious, beautifully crafted Cabernet. Best of all, the 2012 offers notable value within the context of Napa Valley. (AG)" (2/2016) K&L Notes: Located in a small valley in the foothills of the Stag's Leap Range, this family-run vineyar...

2012 Duckhorn "Monitor Ledge" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Very ripe, very rich and incisively varietal with an uncanny sense of finesse given its fruity amplitude and considerable size, Duckhorn's Monitor Ledge bottling is a broad, mouthfilling Cabernet Sauvignon that is as continuous as it is wonderfully deep and defined. It is carefully structured and fairly supple in feel for the young wine that it is, and, while its uncommonly well-polished tannins impart nary so much as a hint of toughness, it is a wine that should be given at least a half-dozen years of age in which to fully develop even if it ...Read More »
