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. (VB)" (11/2015) K&L Notes: Lyeth's Meritage is a blend of the five red Bordeaux varietals with 58... Read More »

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 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 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.

2012 Inglenook "Cask" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

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 »

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 Stony Hill Napa Valley Chardonnay

The perfect growing season of 2012 made for excellent wines across all styles in Napa Valley. Stony Hill's Chardonnay is sourced from 20-30 year old vines and aged in previously used French oak so the fruit and terroir can speak without being dominated by wood. They describe: "Pale straw in color with bright, fresh aromas of pears and apples and a hint of lemon zest.

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.

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."

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

He grafted that budwood onto St. George rootstock at his benchland vineyard west of Napa and north of the San Pablo Bay, where morning fog and offshore breezes in the afternoon help to cool the vines.

2012 Storybook Mountain "Mayacamas Range" Napa Valley Zinfandel

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 Hidden Ridge "55% Slope" Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Hidden Ridge "55% Slope" Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

2012 Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "From both hillside sites and valley floor, this entry-level wine is impressively made and ready to be enjoyed. A mix of rose petals and raspberry preserves surround a good grip of tannin and savory tease of clove, before a lengthy finish adds to the experience. It's made with 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. (VB)" (6/2016) 90 points Vinous: "Hall's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is laced with attractive plum, mocha, licorice, spices and menthol notes.

2012 Groth "Reserve" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Groth "Reserve" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points James Suckling: "This is very classy with mineral, black currant and spice character. Shows chili and Thai basil too. Full body, firm tannins and a bright and persistent finish. Extremely long and elegant. Best ever from here in years?" (7/2015) 93 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a very pretty, mid-weight wine. Eucalyptus, mint, rose petal and bright red berry are pushed forward in an attractive, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon built on class. The tannins are still a bit sinewy, so a few more years in bottle will only be beneficial. Today, it is the wine’s brightness and ...Read More »
