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. Loads of sweet blackcurrant fruit, cocoa, a touch of toast, earth, and baking spice are all present in this wine that has terrific fruit on the attack and mid-palate, a full-bodied mouthfeel, no hard edges and a lus ...Read More »

2012 Clos du Val Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $55)

94 points James Suckling: "Unctuous red with blueberry, blackberry and hints of vanilla on the nose and palate. Full body, very fine tannins and a fresh, clean and beautiful finish. Better in 2018 but already a joy to taste." (1/2016) 90-92 points Vinous: "Clos du Val's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty wine with lovely balance and an understated personality to match. Plums, black cherries, tobacco, cedar, flowers and mint are laced into the silky, expressive finish. Overall this is an attractive, mid-weight Cabernet built on a classic sense of structure.

2012 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $140) Top Pick!
2012 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $140)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing the great blending skills of Beringer’s winemaking team, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a winner. Having purchased Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well. The 1991, one of the great successes of that vintage, is still aging beautifully at nearly 25 years of age. The sensational 2012 (10,000 cases) boasts an opaque purple color along with abundant aromas of charcoal, burning embers, creme de cassis, chocolate, blackberries and licorice. The long, complex, compelling, full-bodied texture along ...Read More »

2012 Gundlach Bundschu "Mountain Cuvée" Sonoma County Red Blend

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A California Côtes du Rhône look-alike, the 2012 Mountain Cuvée is a blend of 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 8% Zinfandel and the rest small dollops of Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Malbec aged 14 months in mostly French oak. It reveals spicy, peppery, meaty notes intermixed with hints of Provençal herbs, dense black cherry and plum-like fruit, medium to full body, an attractive texture, and a seductive finish.

2012 Heitz Cellar Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Heitz Cellar 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 th... 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...It’s light enough for roast chicken." (8/2015) K&L Notes: Lyeth's Meritage is a blend of the five red Bordeaux varietals with 58% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Malbec, 11% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. With grapes sourced from select vineyards across Sonoma County, it is the flagship wine of the estate and delivers an excellent value.

The official release for the Silver Oak Cabernets from the excellent 2012 vintage is August 6, 2016. The winery's vintage note: "Our 2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a lively and full-bodied expression of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from an exceptional vintage. It has a lovely garnet color and opens with aromas of black currant, orange zest and raspberry. These aromas are framed by nuanced notes of vanilla, marshmallow and cocoa, eliciting an effect reminiscent of chocolate-covered berries. The attack is rich and gives way to a mid-pal...

2012 Thomas Coyne Livermore Valley Merlot (Previously $25)

Back in August of last year I was approached by Anne Marie Coyne-Kashkooli, the daughter of Thomas Coyne, who was curious if we were interested in buying a large lot from the Thomas Coyne Winery. To hear that name was a blast from the past for me. For years before I came to K&L I sold the wines out of a little shop in Berkeley that I helped run, and they were always wildly popular with our customers. They were wines of zero pretense, full of charm and ease--so I was all ears. Turned out Thomas, who had been the moving force of the winery, had passed away... Read More »

2012 Burgess "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon from Burgess hits the palate with an exotic concoction of dark fruit, pencil shavings, spices, tobacco, cedar, savory herbs, licorice and lavender. Dark and imposing, the 2012 possesses superb richness, with plenty of Howell Mountain character and intensity. The silkiness of the vintage has softened some of the contours, but this remains a distinctly savory and mineral-inflected Cabernet with tons of hillside character. Today, the 2012 comes across as tightly wound and in need of further cellaring, so readers should not be in ...Read More »

The five 2012 cuvées I tasted are all from amazing elevations. For example, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate comes from vineyards between 500 and 2,400 foot elevations.

2012 Alysian Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Praise from the Prince of Pinot for the winemaker: "Gary Farrell is considered by many the father of Russian River Pinot Noir. Since the 1980s, his wines have been among the best from the Russian River Valley." Winemaker's tasting notes: "Many of the vineyard lots used to make this cuvée sat on skins for about a week after fermentation. My intention was to increase the tannin to add more complexity in the mouthfeel after some cellaring. This wine is quite approachable and crowd pleasing and I recommend opening the bottle about 15 minutes before drinking ... Read More »

2012 Hess Collection "19 Block Mountain Cuvée" Mount Veeder Red Blend

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Mountain Cuvée Block 19, a blend of 60% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah, is a brilliant wine at a realistic price. This is a wine of great intensity with an opaque purple color, sweet blackberry and blueberry fruit intermixed with licorice, espresso bean and a touch of chocolate. It’s ripe, full-bodied, savory, expansive and lush. Drink it over the next decade. The Hess Collection Winery on Mt.

(JL)" (6/2015) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a taut and trim wine, but with plenty of toasted oak aromas and rich maple and cherry flavors to fill out its firm frame. Flavors combine cinnamon, cardamom, plum and Bing cherry. The texture is moderately tannic and firmly crisp for an attractive, lip-smacking quality.

2012 Smith-Madrone Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is quite a bit more polished than the 2011. 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. These are the first wines I have tasted from Smith Madrone and proprietor Stu Smith in some time.

Wilder and deeper in pitch than the 2011 version, displaying powerful black raspberry and boysenberry scents and smoky floral and herbal nuances. Juicy acidity adds lift and structure to the ripe, subtly spicy dark berry flavors. The finish features chewy tannins, an echo of candied flowers and very good persistence."

2012 Robert Sinskey "POV" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Producer Notes: "POV 2012 is that wine you take to dinner to not just impress, but to enjoy. A deep, dark purple hue telegraphs its impressive nature as the aromas and flavors of macerated berries (strawberries, blue/blackberries, and cherries), are backed by notes of bay leaf and fennel seed. The wine obviously came from optimally ripened fruit with supple tannin balanced by just the slightest hint of fine oak barrels and vibrant acidity. Mouth filling and delicious with an incredibly long finish, this wine begs for a seat at tonight’s dinner table."

It offers up sweet black cherry fruit notes intermixed with licorice, spice box and dusty, loamy soil undertones. Medium to full-bodied and deep with loads of ripe fruit, low acidity and sweet, velvety tannins, it can be enjoyed over the next decade."

A symphony bewitches your senses immediately: juniper berry and spice, with just a wisp of toasted coconut hinting at the American oak aging.

He grafted that budwood onto St. George rootstock at his benchland vineyard west of Napa and north of the San Pablo Bay, where morning fog and offshore breezes in the afternoon help to cool the vines. This 2012 parallels the hearty depths of an old-vine Zin, the ripe sour-cherry flavors driven by alcohol but not heated by it, the tannins buzzing with energy.

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* It’s young and it’s deep; it’s nicely focused on bright blackberry fruit and it’s tight but promising—and that is just in its mid-volume aromas. The tight aspect comes doubly into play in the mouth where tannin and acidity combine to add coarse, grabby impressions that interrupt the wine’s fairly likeable fruit and consign the wine to the cellar. Time is absolutely of the essence here, and given the remarkable Storybook Mountain track record with its Zins, we have nothing but full confidence in this one’s ability to reach great heights. ...Read More »

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There have been a number of changes of late at Inglenook, so I was anxious to taste the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask. This wine was first created in 1949 and during that era, through the 50s and early 60s, was considered one of the finest wines of California. This is the best, young Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon I have tasted during my professional career of 35 years. Dense ruby/purple with classic crème de cassis, but underlying minerality and spice box. The wine is full-bodied, but not over-the-top, yet nevertheless authoritative, rich and quite long. T ...Read More »

2012 Ancient Peaks Paso Robles Zinfandel (Previously $15)

Vinous: "Deep ruby. Dried cherry and redcurrant aromas show good energy and a hint of spiciness. Firm and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and cracked pepper qualities and a hint of candied flowers. Finishes with repeating spiciness, dusty tannins and good nervy persistence. Most of the Ancient Peaks wines are priced for a large target audience at what are very low tariffs for the region, but the rest are solidly at the high end, with not much in between. All of the wines, which are made by Mike Sinor (Sinor-LaVallee), have been solid in recent years ...Read More »

2012 Kathryn Kennedy "Lateral" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

From the winemaker: "2012 LATERAL - Dark opaque color...Graphite and cedar nose reminiscent of ripe Bordeaux. Deep brooding fruit aromas with purple plums and dark chocolate aromas followed by hints of loam and cocoa. Plush entry and dense mouth-filling texture. Youthful and structured but with ripe tannins that are fine grained and soft on the finish. A stunning rendition of our “Right Bank” style. A huge and impressive LATERAL vintage: sure to please. A perfect entry with medium-light mouthfeel and elegant texture but not too lean. Small scale... Read More »

2012 Joseph Swan "Trenton Estate" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Silky yet slightly grippy, this is a mineral-driven wine, with violet and spicy cardamom aromas atop bright, vibrant swathes of cherry and wild strawberry. This vineyard is where Joseph Swan himself first planted Pinot Noir, it retains all the promise and greatness of his initial discovery of this magical place along the Laguna Ridge." (4/2016) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby-red. Youthful, highly perfumed red and dark berry scents are complemented by deeper notes of cola, mocha and black cardamon, with a sexy floral nuance building in the glass. Smooth, ...Read More »
