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 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 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 »

A very firm structure weaves together an incredibly well-integrated wine, with dense mulberry and dried-fennel notes that morph into crushed herbs with time.

2012 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Zinfandel

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Bright, buoyant, intensely fruity and absolutely unwavering in its keen varietal focus, this impressively extracted effort is long on substance and stuffing yet is very well-structured for the ample and very ripe wine that it is. 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. It is so deep in fruit that it is certain to tempt hasty drinking, but this is serious wine to cellar away for an ...Read More »

2012 Iron Horse "Classic Vintage Brut" Sonoma County Sparkling Wine

A traditional blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, aged an average of four years on the lees in the bottle. Wonderfully rich and creamy, it sends all kinds of memory bells that say "Champagne", though the fruit is unmistakably Sonoma County-Green Valley. It is vintage quality in every sense of the word. The ultimate food wine. Goes with everything--sushi, fried, salty and spicy dishes, rich chicken soup (guaranteed to cure whatever ails you), with popcorn on Oscar night. The best no-fat dessert is Brut and fruit--a handful of fresh berries in summer or sl... Read More »

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 »

Powerful and full-bodied, it's fruity, balanced and enjoyable now. (VB)" (2/2016) Wine & Spirits: "Lush, round and generous, this is a heady style of cabernet with unctuous black fruit. A hint of violets in the aroma lends some freshness, while the bitter black tannins need protein, like lamb burgers, to mellow." (12/2015)

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. 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.

2012 Fort Ross "Fort Ross Vineyard" Fort Ross-Seaview Pinot Noir

The wine has terrific fruit on the attack and mid-palate, medium to full body, and a long finish. This is a beauty to drink over the next decade. This small operation boasts Jeff Pisoni as the winemaker and is owned by Lester and Linda Schwartz. They began planting their 55-acre vineyard in 1994, with the first vintage in 2000.

2012 Duckhorn Howell Mountain Bordeaux Blend

92 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a high-octane mountain cabernet, its sweet black fruit subdued by the richness of new French oak (95 percent of the lot), which works to tame its power and make it accessible in its youth. The flavors are dark in tone, from pipe tobacco to walnuts and soy. Decant it for an equally massive steak." (4/2017) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A big-shouldered red made predominantly of Cabernet Sauvignon with a balance of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this wine offers bold, firm tannins and heaps of body. Blackberry, chocolate mocha and clove flavors meet crayon and graphite ...Read More »

2012 Mayacamas Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

93-96 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is shaping up to be a real beauty. Pliant and nuanced, the 2012 caresses the palate with a total sense of silkiness. Bright red cherries, mint, spices and flowers are all laced together in a supple, radiant Cabernet Sauvignon that captures the essence of the vintage. The purity of the fruit here is simply striking, but the 2012 is not a powerhouse, rather it is a wine built on finesse. Rose petals, mint, sage and a hint of white pepper add an element of exoticism on the high-toned, expressive finish. (AG)" (12/2014) 94 points James Suckling: "This is a ta ...Read More »

Completely understated, it will do well at the table or on its own as aperitif fare.

2012 Baker Lane "Sonoma Coast Cuvée" Sonoma Coast Syrah

From the winery: "The 2014 Cuvee is again a selection out of our Estate vineyard production, always a good thing but perhaps never more so than in this exceptional vintage. In many respects, it is a near carbon copy of our breakthrough 2012 effort: deep blue violet, penetrating aromas of black fruits and meaty/savory elements, all backed by well integrated tannins and crisp acidity. This wine was blended to be an earlier drinking expression of the year's bounty (and with a touch of air it begins to explode in the glass). Given how it holds up and develop... Read More »

Its dense purple/black color is followed by copious quantities of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, silky tannins, a voluptuous texture and stunning purity as well as length.

The wine’s gravelly minerality and spectacular opulence and density make it an instant classic. This massive, full-bodied 2012 should drink beautifully for 15-20+ years.

The Pagani family has been tending this ranch for four generations, since it was first planted in the 1880s by Felice Pagani. It is entirely dry farmed on an extremely deep root system. Tasting notes for the 2012 Zinfandel: "Upfront flavors of blue fruit, blackberry and boysenberry. Intense color and structure, yet drinks light. Tightly wound, focused with brisk acidity."

2012 Carlisle "Two Acres" Russian River Valley Red Blend

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This is a mix of Mourvédre, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Syrah, Carignane and Peloursin from a two-acre site planted long ago. Smoky and yet pretty in rose, orange and mushroomy earth, it maintains a steady streak of raspberry, blackberry, leather and licorice. (VB)" (5/2015) 91-93 points Vinous: "Carlisle's 2012 Red Wine Two Acres is showing beautifully today. The flavors are bright and beautifully focused in this vintage. Orange peel, crushed rocks and cranberries all take shape in the glass. The 2012 is rich and concentrated, but also wonderfully vibran ...Read More »

2012 Sine Qua Non "Stock" Central Coast Syrah
Bid on this bottle of 2012 Sine Qua Non "Stock" Central Coast Syrah (98RP, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A step up from the Grenache, the blockbuster-styled 2012 Syrah Stock checks in as a blend of 84% Syrah, 7% Grenache, 6% Petit Sirah, and the rest Viognier and Mourvedre, that was fermented with 32% whole clusters and aged in just over half new French oak. It offers stunning notes of blackcurrants, cassis, smoked meats, ground pepper and wild herbs to go with a full-bodied, unctuous, layered, yet always graceful and elegant feel on the palate. Nicely structured, with perfect overall balance, it still has the open-knit character of the vintage, yet has plenty of underlying structure, which at the moment is slightly hidden by the wine's lavish fruit. It will be better in 2-3 years, and have two decades of overall longevity. (JD)" (08/2015)

2012 Stonestreet "Rockfall Vineyard" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "he 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall Vineyard, which sees 57% new French oak for 20 months, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with a deep, opaque purple color and notes of charcoal, créme de cassis, graphite and white chocolate. It is full-bodied, multilayered, very deep, impressive and long.

2012 Qupé Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Plump boysenberry and dewy sagebrush meet with a touch of wet asphalt on the nose of this bottling by Bob Lindquist, whose pioneering brand is now part of Charles Banks' portfolio. Dark purple fruits, from blueberry to blackberry, show on the palate, but with refreshing tartness, as do more complex nuances of menthol, eucalyptus and incense. (MK)" (6/2016) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Reminding me of a quality St. Joseph from France's Northern Rhone valley, the 2012 Syrah Santa Barbara County (75% Bien Nacido Vineyard and 25% Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard) offers lots lot pepper, olive ta ...Read More »

2012 Bressler Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91-93 points Vinous: "Bressler's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with an exotic melange of dark red cherry, plum, mocha, spice, licorice and new leather. The 2012 is big, bold and intense, but all the flavors are beautifully layered in the glass. Today the 2012 is quite rich and voluptuous. It will be interesting to see where it goes from here. (AG)" (11/2013)
