2012 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay Top Pick!
2012 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard, which will probably be released in a few months, displays great minerality, notes of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, poached pear, and white flowers as well as a touch of quince. A wine of great intensity, yet incredibly ethereal elegance, this light greenish gold-colored wine is full-bodied, stunningly rich, and altogether remarkable. When you consider that they use 100% new French oak and 100% heavy toast for both their Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, it is remarkable how little oak appears in these wines.

2012 Caymus "40th Anniversary" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

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 »

2012 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Famed for their original, cult Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Heitz acquired their Trailside site, located adjacent the Silverado Trail route through the eastern side of Napa Valley, in the 1980s. Trailside generally produces a more "modern," bolder, intense Napa style of Cabernet. The winery's note: "Our 2012 Trailside proves the sheer beauty of the vintage with a glorious depth of rich Cabernet character. Deep shades of purple saturate the glass and compelling aromas emerge: fresh blackberries with a whisper of caramel and clove. This wine is op... Read More »

2012 Jordan Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine & Spirits: "“Welcoming Cabernet” might seem like an oxymoron, but Jordan has always aimed for a style that’s drinkable on release. Mostly hillside and benchland Cabernet, supported by Petit Verdot and Merlot and aged a full 24 months in bottle before release, this emphasizes effusive red fruit and a sweet, leafy tobacco aroma. You could drink it now with steak tartare, or put it away for another seven or eight years." (12/2016) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a complex, layered and elegantly conceived wine.

2012 Joseph Swan "Mancini Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Subdued and delicately ripe, this wine offers understated notions of leather, chocolate and blackberry bramble, with an electric undercurrent of fresh-squeezed citrus. Light and bright, this is a study in holding back, with complexity at its core. (VB)" (10/2017) K&L Notes: 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.

A blend of 93% Syrah, 5% Petite Sirah and 2% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, it spent 40 months in 78% new French oak.

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.

2012 Laird Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, is an equal-part blend of Flat Rock and Mast vineyards. It is a sexy wine offering up notes of espresso roast, melted chocolate and blackcurrants in a decidedly hedonistic and plush style. The color is a dark plum/purple. The wine is round, generous, expansive and altogether silky and pleasing. Some oak is present, but overall the wine is very well-balanced, ready to drink and yet should evolve and hold together for up to a decade.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (98VN, 94RP, 94WS, 93W&S). Vinous: "The 2012 Monte Bello is one of the most harmonious young Monte Bellos I can remember tasting. Seamless and voluptuous through to the finish, the 2012 is showing beautifully today. Raspberry jam, pomegranate, white flowers, mint and spices are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. A wine with a distinctly red-hued profile, silky tannins, no hard edges and exceptional overall balance, the 2012 Monte Bello is simply magnificent. The 2012 is racy but also impeccably balanced throughout, with shades of the 2001 that come through from time to time. I won't be surprised if the 2013 and 2014 both eventually surpass it, but there is no denying that the 2012 is simply stunning today. This is one of the best showings yet for the 2012.

2012 DuMol "Jack Robert's Run" Sonoma Coast Syrah

It is showy in some ways and still nascent in others, and it impresses as a wine with great places to go. It would be a shame to pour it before its fifth or sixth birthday, and it should continue to grow for at least twice as long."

This wine seems slightly more expansive, shares the black ruby/purple color with all of it siblings, and has a boatload of crème de cassis, incense, licorice, graphite and vanilla along with plenty of spice box and forest floor.

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.

It is impressively concentrated yet is always light on its feet and hints at that special, slightly velvety quality found in the very best versions of the grape, yet it exhibits enough youthful, back-palate tightness to make waiting the smart choice.

2012 Eric Kent "Stiling Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Wispy accents of sweet hardwoods and a touch of dried flowers sit lightly atop a full serving of nicely formed, optimally ripened cherry-like fruit in the nose here, and careful oak similarly goes on to play a supporting role in the wine's concentrated, solidly varietal flavors. This one joins a good many of its vintage mates in being both outgoing and yet structured for keeping, and, if not a wine that will in any way punish early drinking, it is a Pinot that clearly can grow."

Full-bodied, seamless and elegant, it's a stacked, concentrated, layered Syrah that never puts a foot wrong. Give it 2-4 years and enjoy bottles through 2032. (JD)" (08/2015)

2012 Anthill Farms "Peters Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Shows sweet black raspberry and cherry-cola on the palate, with a spine of tangy acidity adding lift and focus. Distinctly elegant and vivacious, with smooth, slow-building tannins giving shape to the persistent, sappy finish, with the berry note echoing.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 1,580 cases of the 2012 James Berry Vineyard and it reminds me of the 2009 Janasse Chaupin (which is one of Justin’s favorite wines).

2012 Keenan "Mernet Reserve" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Mernet Reserve, which is a blend of 50% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Cabernet Franc, may well be Michael Keenan’s favorite wine. Only 500 cases were produced. Chocolaty cassis, graphite, spice box and plum are all present in this sensational blend that should age beautifully for 15-20 years, although most people will have consumed it by year ten. It is remarkable that 2012 is the fourteenth vintage that this proprietary blend has been produced, and it seems like its just yesterday I first tasted it. The color is a ...Read More »

Bid on this bottle of 2012 Sine Qua Non "Rattrapante - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache (100RP, 97VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A perfect wine any way you look at it, the 2012 Grenache Rattrapante comes all from the Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta.

My notes start - and end - with “Wow.” Giving up tons of black raspberries, peppery herbs, licorice, dried flowers and cured meats, it’s a massively concentrated, rich and layered Grenache that somehow manages to stay graceful, lively and fresh on the palate. There are roughly 800 cases of this elixir and any Grenache lover should do their best to latch onto a bottle (or two).

2012 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard is one of the most tannic and structured Zinfandel in Turley's extensive lineup. Tense, brilliant and beautifully sculpted throughout, the 2012 bursts from the glass with explosive concentration and pulsating acididy. Winemaker Tegan Passalacqua gave the 2012 three extra months in barrel, all of which it clearly needed. Readers will have to be patient here.
