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

90 points Wine Spectator: "Notes of dill, herb and vanilla bean-scented oak lead to an elegant array of dark berry, herb, cedar, gravelly earth and underbrush flavors. The tannins cling a bit, but this is an enjoyable and approachable youngster, with a track record for aging. Drink now through 2028. (JL)" (6/2017) K&L Notes: "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'... Read More »

2012 Joseph Swan "Zeigler Vineyard" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Sanguine and restrained, this is a lovely version of the variety from the region. It is high-toned in refreshing acidity and accented in red cherry and a memorable spiciness of cinnamon and pepper. Completely understated, it will do well at the table or on its own as aperitif fare. (VB)" (10/2017) K&L Notes: Rod and Lynn Berglund carry the mantle for this historic Russian River Valley winery as it marches into its 50th year.

2012 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine & Spirits: "Warren Winiarski planted this benchland site in 1970, a parcel adjacent and just to the south of Nathan Fay’s vineyard, which produced the grapes that had initially attracted Winiarski to this place at the rim of the Stags Leap escarpment. As it turned out, the soils at S.L.V. were different, primarily volcanic. The vineyard is best known for having produced the wine that won the Paris Tasting of 1976—from vines then three years old—and this latest vintage is a window into how that might have happened. The 35-acre site is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, t ...Read More »

Lots of fruit but the tannins give it form and poise. Drink in 2018." (12/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best of the group seemed to be the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Coombsville, the hot, new southern Napa AVA. This wine offers up notes of earth, white chocolate, cedar wood, gravel and blackcurrants. It is medium-bodied with loads of fruit and is an excellent value for a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the palate the wine is ample, concentrated and fresh, with more intensity and drive than many of the supple wines this easygoing vintage produced. Its inherent complexity needs time to unfurl.

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 Stony Hill Napa Valley Chardonnay

93 points John Gilman: "The 2012 vintage of Stony Hill Chardonnay is a beautiful young wine, but this is still defined by its impeccable structure and will need time in the cellar to really start to stir and deliver on its marvelous promise. The youthful bouquet offers up a very pure and still quite tight blend of apple, a touch of beeswax, chalky soil tones, fruit blossoms, a touch of fresh almond and a very, very faint touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is crisp, fresh and rock solid at the core, with its full-bodied format delivering outstanding focus and grip, ze ...Read More »

Stone fruit, vanilla biscuit, cherry kirsch and green apple are all within the spectrum of flavors here, finishing with grace and a hint of spice.

A blend of 93% Syrah, 5% Petite Sirah and 2% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, it spent 40 months in 78% new French oak.

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."

A wine of great intensity, yet incredibly ethereal elegance, this light greenish gold-colored wine is full-bodied, stunningly rich, and altogether remarkable.

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.

There are 600 cases, it was aged in 30% new French oak, and the alcohol is 14.8%. This outstanding wine displays lots of elegance, a distinctive earthy, loamy soil character intermixed with black currants, black cherries and underbrush, an attr ...Read More »

2012 Laird Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, is an equal-part blend of Flat Rock and Mast vineyards. It is a sexy wine offering up notes of espresso roast, melted chocolate and blackcurrants in a decidedly hedonistic and plush style. The color is a dark plum/purple. The wine is round, generous, expansive and altogether silky and pleasing. Some oak is present, but overall the wine is very well-balanced, ready to drink and yet should evolve and hold together for up to a decade. The Laird family have for years been among the larger growers of Napa Valley. The amazing ...Read More »

2012 Williams Selyem "Terra De Promissio" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid red. Pungent aromas of candied dark berries and lavender, with a peppery topnote. Juicy, expansive black raspberry and floral pastille flavors show excellent depth and put on weight with air. Changes a lot in the glass, taking a turn to blueberry and finishing sweet and lively, with firm grip and floral persistence. (ST)" (5/2014) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This classy young Pinot is the second release from the winery’s only Petaluma Gap vineyard.

2012 Williams Selyem "Ferrington Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

2012 Turley "Judge Bell" Amador Valley Zinfandel

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(15.9% alcohol; from a vineyard planted in 1907): Captivating, complex perfume of musky raspberry, coffee, sage and wild herbs; communicates an impression of garrigue (this vineyard is actually surrounded by open land). At once dense and juicy, with lovely purity and a high pitch to its briary red berry, herb and spice flavors. Strong acidity accentuates the impression of dryness. Finishes juicy, tight and complex, with firm dusty tannins. A rather Old World style, and with considerable potential for improvement in bottle." (5/2014) 90-92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Zinfandel ...Read More »

2012 Carlisle "Pagani Ranch" Sonoma Valley Zinfandel

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining purple. Expansive, strikingly pungent aromas of cherry-cola, blueberry, lavender and smoky Indian spices. Offers palate-staining black and blue fruit liqueur flavors enlivened by zesty mineral and spice notes and a hint of fresh flowers. The finish strongly repeats the blueberry and spice notes and hangs on with serious tenacity. Officer says that these vines are now 112 years old." (5/2014) 92-94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch stands out for its centered, beautifully focused personality. The 2012 is bright, lifted and expressive from the very fi ...Read More »

2012 Williams Selyem "Vista Verde Vineyard" San Benito County Pinot Noir

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The winery sources this fruit from a vineyard near Hollister. It delivers aromas of bramble berry, espresso-dipped cherry and allspice. Cherry and chocolate power the palate, which also benefits from lifting mint, sagebrush and eucalyptus, finishing with chopped herbs." (4/2015) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Powerful aromas of blackberry, woodsmoke, mocha and Indian spices, with a floral nuance adding lift. Weighty but energetic on the palate, offering sweet dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of candied violet. Nothing delicate about this one. Quite a bit diffe ...Read More »
