2012 Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolutely fabulous value is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. This comes from multiple sources and there are 46,000+ cases of it. A stunning Cabernet Sauvignon and a classic example of Napa viticulture, this blend of 75.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec, was aged just over two years in oak.

2012 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Artemis" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $46)

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Artemis is SLWC’s cabernet blend from purchased grapes and, in 2012, it’s broad and juicy, emphasizing full-on depths of plum-skin flavor and richness while retaining freshness in the fruit. Generous in its creamy texture, this is a match for filet mignon." (6/2015) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Already bottled, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis is similar to its siblings. It offers delicious blackcurrant fruit, not as much complexity as the Fay or S.L.V., but an attractive meaty, rich blackcurrant fruitiness, well-integrated wood, and hints of spice and oak.

2012 Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon New! Top Pick!
2012 Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The stunning 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a 30-year wine. Loads of crème de cassis, blackberry liqueur, licorice, incense and oak jump from the glass of this huge, massive, concentrated and ripe wine that reminds me of some of the early vintages from Michael Dunn’s father, Randy, particularly the 1982 and 1984. This is a beauty of great intensity and purity that should age effortlessly for 25-30+ years. If you can find it, it will be certainly worth having, as it flirts with perfection.

2012 Neely "Hidden Block-Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting out slightly reductive, the 2012 Pinot Noir Hidden Block Spring Ridge Vineyard opens up nicely with air and shows lots of forest floor, currants, mushroom and earth in a medium-bodied, supple, nicely textured and balanced package. Certainly showing the more earthy, underbrush and darker end of the spectrum, it should benefit from a year or two in the cellar and drink nicely through 2023.

This is a multi-dimensional, profound Chardonnay (as it often was when made by Helen Turley) from a vineyard planted with an Old Wente clone as well as the Hyde clone of Chardonnay. It should drink well for 5-6 years. Stonestreet’s wines continue to go from strength to strength under the direction of South African winemaker Graham Weerts.

This is a decidedly flashy, buttery Chardonnay, but all the elements are in the right place, even if this style can't exactly be called subtle.

It is comfortably fruity with a nice mix of citrus and both ripe and green apples as its central message, and, while not absent of oak, it keeps the latter to a judicious minimum. If by a slight margin the most forward of the Farrell clan, it nonetheless possesses fine potential for aging and will improve for several years."

Ripe, voluptuous and very much in the style of the year, the 2012 is a showy wine, with plenty of intensity and resonance. At the same time, there is plenty of tannic backbone lurking beneath that gives the wine its power and overall structure.

2012 Newton "Unfiltered" Napa Valley Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Newton’s 2012 Chardonnay Unfiltered exhibits lots of honeysuckle, tropical fruit and marmalade, good minerality and excellent acidity that buttresses and provides uplift to the full-bodied, lavish, extravagant nature of this Chardonnay. As this wine ages, it will undoubtedly take on more Burgundy, Bâtard-Montrachet-like characteristics, but it is hard to resist young (which I know from personal experience).

(8/2015) 94 points Vinous: "A dark, sumptuous beauty, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve To Kalon Vineyard boasts marvelous depth and pure texture. Hints of mocha, espresso, cloves, new leather and menthol wrap around a core of dark, pliant fruit. The ...Read More »

2012 Fritz Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Oaky and full bodied, this conveys a strong impression of big berry fruit. Spice and herbal components are underplayed, letting the fruit come forth in all its glory. This is an attractive and ready-to-drink wine." (3/2015)
