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 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. Perfumed, it expresses itself in tight, chewy tannins before revealing cedar, pencil shavings and cranberry in a medium-bodied package.

The palate is very focused, with flavors of preserved lemon, lime rind, sage-roasted chicken and a faint minty element. (MK)" (11/2015) Wine Spectator: "Trim and leesy, with enough richness and intensity midpalate on to sustain itself, showing a creamy touch to the fig, apricot and green apple flavors.

Drink or hold." (7/2015) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Cellar Selection*** This structured wine is lithe and ethereal in dried herb and cranberry, with a hint of pencil lead. Puckering tannins suggest aging through 2020, to draw out the more succulent layers of black cherry and plum. The wine has 12% Merlot.

I'm not sure I would guess it was Cabernet Sauvignon if I had it blind because tannins are already so velvety for this stage, gentle but not overly soft.

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.

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 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 »

This is a blend of multiple vintages. It's 58% Pinot Noir, 18% Barbera, 12% Syrah, 5% Zinfandel, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Sirah. It's reminiscent of many old-style field blends. Aromas of red raspberry, cherry, lavender and spice spring from the glass. The juicy palate displays red cherry, blackberry and spice flavors with a silky smooth finish. This delicious red wine can pair marvelously with your typical backyard barbecue and picnic fare.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 55 Degrees Slope exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as beautiful, sweet crème de cassis, Asian plum sauce, licorice and forest floor notes. Full-bodied with velvety tannins, and impressive concentration, texture and length, this superb Cabernet can be drunk early in life because of its velvety opulence or cellared for two decades.

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 »

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.

It is nicely balanced and slightly rounded in feel with a steady stream of tiny bubbles, and its very mannerly Méthode Champenoise statement tags it as a versatile sparkler that is as suited to solo sipping as it is to drinking with milder foods."

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.

This opaque purple wine has a beautiful nose of blueberry, blackberry, licorice and earthy undertones. Stunningly full-proportioned the wine has terrific depth of fruit and richness.

Pungent, spicy and broad, offering good weight to its dark berry jam, herb and spicecake flavors.

The contours are a bit angular, but there is nevertheless plenty of depth, resonance and pure power. This is one of the more massive wines in the range, but there is quite a bit to admire in the wine's dark, mysterious personality.

(12/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark ruby-hued, full-bodied 2012 Zinfandel Home Ranch Vineyard offers briery, black raspberry, mulberry and black cherry fruit intertwined with earth, pepper and spice. This pedal-to-the-metal beauty should be consumed over the next 3-4 years. It is a classic Seghesia Zin."

2012 Salvestrin "Estate" St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc, has interesting charcuterie, meaty smells and roasted herbs in the nose, followed by black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. It is a Mediterranean style of Cabernet Sauvignon that has lush, soft tannin, a dense ruby/purple color and immediate drinkability. However, there's no doubt it can age well for another 5-10 years. (RP)" (12/2015) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Mouthcoating, this is a full-bodied wine with small amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Tar, leather, ceda ...Read More »

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

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors’ Choice* From the vineyard that helped propel the appellation’s reputation into the stratosphere, this wine delivers both in terms of its historical significance, but also in present-day refinement and complexity. A flinty, earthy layer of black truffle and coffee open the aromatic profile of the wine before offering bold, brawny flavors of leather and black currant. The oak is well integrated and the tannins sizable yet behaved. This is a beautiful wine. (VB)" (6/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard boasts loads of black cherry and blac ...Read More »

2012 Palmina Santa Barbara County Barbera

92 points Vinous: "Once again, Palmina's 2012 Barbera is absolutely delicious as well as one of the most distinctive wines in the range. Pungent red berries, orange peel, spice and mint open up in a super-classic, old-school Barbera endowed with tons of complexity and nuance, with a distinct nod to the great old-school Piedmont Barberas. The 2012 spent six months in neutral barrels then two years in cask. From top to bottom, this is a compelling set of new releases from Steve and Chrystal Clifton at Palmina. Although all of these wines are delicious, if there is one wine t ...Read More »

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 Ulysses Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $180)

97 points James Suckling: "*#30 in The Top 100 Reds of Napa Valley 2016* Subtle aromas of crushed berries and tile. Mushrooms. Almost dusty. Full to medium body, powdery tannins and mouthfeel. Bright acidity that gives the wine beautiful and enticing freshness. Gentle and ethereal red. The first vintage of the new wine from the owners of Dominus.

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 »

2012 Caymus "40th Anniversary" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "They appear to be immune to some of winedom’s less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time, and the result is a spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary offering. 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. This full-bodied effort is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a tribute to this amazing family. It is so good now, why wait? However, I’m sure that like m ...Read More »
