2012 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
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. 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's 100 point scale but it is always exactly what you know it to be: rich, powerful, heavily fruited, laced with spicy oak and full of structure but still enjoyable upon release. Perfect for gifts, important client meetings, special dinners and a great mid-term wine for any smart collecto... Read More »

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 »

2012 Provenance Napa Valley Merlot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Merlot Barrel Select ratchets up things rather nicely, with more mocha, black cherry fruit, slightly more body, deeper color and more substance and depth. This wine should turn out to be quite nice. (RP)" (10/2014)

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 »

2012 Kenwood "Artist Series" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $50)

In 2012, Kenwood partnered with Sonoma artist Nathan Wirth to create the label that represents this vintage. Stately and brooding, Wirth's black-and-white vineyard landscape reflects the intense, age-worthy wine inside. Sourced mainly from Kenwood's Carriger and Lone Pine estate vineyards, the Cabernet is blended with a bit of Merlot and Petit Verdot to add depth, then aged for 26 months in French oak barrels. Tasting notes from the winery: "Deep in color, this wine unveils fragrant fruit aromas of cassis, black cherry and vanilla that join with complex ... Read More »

2012 Raymond "District Collection" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $90)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Cherry-berry crumble topped with vanilla cream gives this wine a brambly, succulent quality, dusted in light cinnamon spice, cedar and well-integrated tannin and oak. Powerful and full-bodied, it's fruity, balanced and enjoyable now." (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) Wine Spectator: "Dried herb, dusty-cedary oak and loamy earth lead to firm black licorice, dried currant and gr ...Read More »

2012 Domaine Carneros Brut Sparkling Wine

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."

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.

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.

2012 Joseph Swan "Mancini Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

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. The winery's tasting note for the 2012: "Blackberry, white pepper floral hints, bit of lushness. Complex balanced, elegant. A classic old style zinfandel made with new age sensibilities. And, it is under 13% alcohol!"

2012 Hendry "Blocks 7 & 22" Napa Valley Zinfandel

Aged for 15 months in French oak, this has the richness of a full-bodied claret, supple, heady and black. The dark fruitiness of cloud-ear mushrooms combines with a touch of volatility in the finish, a brisk, earthy zin to decant for braised lamb."

2012 Keenan Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Black cherries, plums, graphite incense and violets start to open with air, but the 2012 is a wine for the patient, as the tannins are huge and imposing. Still, the wine's pedigree is impossible to miss. This vivid, striking Cabernet Sauvignon is built to drink well for several decades.

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.

Dark and imposing, the 2012 possesses superb richness, with plenty of Howell Mountain character and intensity.

Tobacco, licorice, earthiness and grilled herbs wrap around a core of dark fruit in this intriguing, beautifully layered Syrah.

It sports a slightly darker color than the Chardonnay and offers up incredible notes of caramelized peaches, poached apples, white flowers and crushed rock that flow seamlessly to a full-bodied, decadent, yet classy and graceful feel on the palate. It’s a classic effort that doesn’t pull any punches, yet also never seems hot, heavy or puts a foot wrong. Enjoy this beauty over the coming decade or more. (JD)" (08/2014)

2012 Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of currant, blueberry and brick character. Some dried herb too. Full body, firm and racy tannins plus dark berry, dark chocolate and mahogany. Wonderful finish. 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. Drink or hold." (7/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The soft, delicious, complex 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate offers notes of cedarwood, blackcurrants, baking spices, Asian soy, crème de cassis, licorice and a touch of graphite. It continues to remind me of a hypothetical blend of a second or third-growth Bordeaux Pauillac with a Napa Valley Cabernet. Composed of 94% ...Read More »

2012 Kenefick Ranch "Estate" Calistoga Merlot (Previously $50)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Bold aromas of black currant and espresso lead to dense, rich flavors of black raspberry, mocha and spicy cedar. Drink now through 2020. (TF)" (9/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "A mushroomy underbelly lies beneath a layer of leather and graphite, making for a tight, dry wine with sizable tannin structure. Powerfully concentrated, this wine holds 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and is not for the faint of heart. (VB)" (12/2015)

2012 Turnbull "Leopoldina" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big-time winner, the dense purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Leopoldina Vineyard possesses savory blackcurrant and blackberry fruit deftly touched by toasty oak. The wine builds incrementally on the palate to a full-bodied crescendo at the finish. The tannins are sweet but noticeable, and the wine is long and rich. It should be accessible young yet last for two decades.

Sweet blackcurrant, blackberry, licorice, chocolate and loamy soil notes are followed by a savory, expansive, opulent, dense yet approachable and exuberant wine.
