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 Calluna "Cuvee CVC" Chalk Hill Bordeaux Blend

95 points Wine & Spirits: ""David Jeffrey’s estate, in the hills east of the Russian River Valley, tends to give a cool, taut expression of the Bordelaise grapes, thanks to maritime influence and the vineyard’s sandstone and shale-based soils. This merlot-based blend includes cabernet sauvignon, franc, petit verdot and malbec; in 2012, the wine’s flavors are vigorous and cohesive, with hints of black plum and mint, though the overall impression is primarily mineral, the refreshing glints of fruit completely tied to the structure. It evolves slowly over several days of air, barely ...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."

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A small step up over the Katherine’s Vineyard, the 2012 Chardonnay Bench Break shows slightly more toasty oak in its apple and orchard fruits, white flowers and hints of nuttiness. Full-bodied, rich and layered, it’s a big, full-flavored effort that stays beautifully balanced and pure. Spending roughly 10 months in 57% new French oak, enjoy bottles over the coming 3-4 years.

Having purchased Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well.

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.

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 »

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 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 »

Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were sourced from select vineyards across Napa Valley and vinified by Christian Moueix's winemaking team (also responsible for Dominus) at their facility in Yountville. This excellent value in Napa Cab evokes tones of red fruit, cassis, and eucalyptus.

2012 Robert Sinskey Carneros Pinot Noir

Robert Sinskey Vineyards is the cult winery that nobody calls a cult winery, an early adopter of organic and Biodynamic winegrowing on over 200 acres of vineyards in the Carneros and Stags Leap districts, and a very culinary-centric operation, too. The winery's note on the vintage: "The 2012 vintage created wines that are as close to perfect as we have ever seen. The translucent, ruby red color triggers symptoms of synesthesia as you think you can almost smell or taste the wine just by looking at its vibrant color. Aromas and flavors of cranberry and ras...

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 »

2012 Thomas Fogarty Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

Vinous: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains is a very pretty entry-level offering. Sweet red cherries, mint, rose petals and savory herbs all lift out of the glass in a delicate, perfumed Pinot endowed with striking aromatic complexity, bright fruit and fabulous overall balance. (AG)" (7/2014)

2012 Gundlach Bundschu "Estate Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Loads of crème de cassis, licorice, smoke and mineral are all present in this full-bodied, ripe, impressive Cabernet Sauvignon. It should hit its prime in another 4-5 years and last 20-25. (RP)" (3/2016) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Cellar Selection*** Black olive tapenade, cedar and tobacco combine for a memorable effect in this largely structured wine, its tannins and oaks still resolving on the palate. From historic family-farmed vineyard, it's a powerful wine that will benefit with time; cellar through 2020. (VB)" (10/2015) Wine Spectator: "Well-proportioned, with a mix of savory herb, dusty wild ...Read More »

2012 Dry Creek Vineyard "Hillside & Benchlands" Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This wine over-delivers a mouthful of juicy quality vis-a-vis price, combining Cab with smaller dabs of Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Savory blackberry and cassis lift the fruitiness, seasoned in savory tones of black tea and cranberry that give it an edge. Fleshy and smooth, it’s a good wine to stock up on. (VB)" (12/2015) Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star & Good Value* Smelling variously of ripe cherries, root beer, graphite and loamy earth and as explicitly varietal in flavor as it is in aroma, this easy going, well-balanced, modestly tanni ...Read More »

2012 Trinchero "Mario's Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $50)

94 points James Suckling: "A big and rich red with lots of dried berry and blueberry character. Chocolate too. Full-bodied, round and chewy. A wine with fruit and muscle that gives it form. Drink or hold." (7/2015) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a blend of grapes from Mario’s Vineyard and Central Park West Vineyard, both in St. Helena. Full bodied and voluptuous, it offers classically tuned touches of cedar, dried herb, lingering red cherry and cassis. Sizable tannins give it plushness and depth. Drink now through 2022." (8/2016) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mario's (14.8% alcohol) shows soft tannins in an u ...Read More »

2012 Whitehall Lane Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* For the Whitehall Lane brace, it is really a matter of stylistic preference when it comes to choosing one. This is the more open of the two and while it may not last as long in the bottle, it is significantly easier on the palate right now. It would be unfair to suggest that it can't age, but its flavors are accessible and, if a few years in bottle cannot hurt, they are certainly not strongly demanded." (8/2015) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "0 With a healthy helping of Merlot, as well as Petit Verdot and Malbec, this Cab is soft and well integrated, high in acidity with laye ...Read More »
