2011 Sine Qua Non "Patine - Eleven Confessions Vineyard" Santa Rita Hills Grenache (Previously $500)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming all from Manfred's Eleven Confessions Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills and a blend of 77% Grenache, 22% Syrah and 1% Viognier (fermented with 25% whole clusters), the 2011 Grenache Patine spent a full 33 months in almost all neutral oak, with just 11% being new.

2011 Domaine de la Terre Rouge "Tête à Tête" Sierra Foothills Rhone Blend

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a blend of 45% mourvedre, 28% syrah and 27% grenache): Bright medium red. Spicy red fruit aromas are complemented by an iron-like element of smoky meat and lifted by orange peel. Dry, round and aromatic in the mouth, with red berry flavors animated by pepper, licorice and herbs. This fresh, spicy blend finishes with sweet, easygoing tannins and good length.

2011 Rochioli Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fine acidity and a lick of steel give this Sauvignon Blanc a gravity above and beyond the savory flavors of citrus, green apple, lemongrass and honey. With its elegance, this should pair well with roast chicken." (9/2012) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of lemon zest, green apple, jasmine and iodine, with a hint of white pepper coming up with air.

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine that needs to be forgotten in the cellar for 5-6 years, the 2011 Syrah Patine checks in as a blend of roughly 97% Syrah and the balance Roussanne and Viognier. It too comes all from the estate's Eleven Confessions Vineyard and saw 39 months in 63% new French oak. Backward, tight, concentrated and structured, with full-bodied richness and depth, it gives up Guigal La Landonne like aromas and flavors of graphite, sweet oak, smoked meats, pepper and black raspberry and cassis-like fruit.

2011 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(30% new oak): Bright ruby-red. Captivating, high-pitched aromas of cassis, licorice pastille, bitter chocolate, violet, rose petal and mocha. Juicy and tightly wound, with fresh acidity energizing the middle palate but keeping the wine's dark berry flavors restrained today. There's a lightly peppery quality that gives away the vintage, but this highly aromatic wine is a big success for the year and very well made.

2011 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) has a bit of a darker toned than the Russian River bottling, and also firmer in its tannin. Plum, black cherry, menthol, tobacco and licorice meld together gracefully as the 2011 opens up in the glass. The combination of fruit and structure is compelling. This is a fabulous appellation-level Pinot, due in part to the vineyard blend, which in 2011 includes 40% fruit from Gap's Crown, along with Terra del Promissio and Walala.

Spicy, sappy and intense, with terrific lift and early personality to the flavors of raspberry, spices, earth, tea leaf and iron. This highly complex young Pinot finishes with a firm edge of acidity that calls for a couple years of patience."

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* We have found it not all that uncommon for a Pinot producer's appellation bottlings to equal or even surpass some of its single-vineyard examples, and this very deep and carefully constructed effort gives its pricier partners a good run for their money. It is long on ripe-cherry fruit and accented with bright, raspberry-like notes, and it is perked up by neatly placed acidity from first sip to finish.

A dark, pliant, brooding wine, the 2011 has an element of gravitas that is impossible to miss. All the elements meld together nicely in the glass.

Smoke, tobacco and a host of earthier, gamier notes develop in the glass, but the 2011 remains distinctly big and fruit-driven in style. The 2011 is not a wine for the timid. I would love to taste it again in another few years, but it is already pretty special. The 2011 saw a dollop of Viognier (3%) and was aged in neutral oak.

The 50% stems are barely noticeable, if at all. Villa Creek's James Berry Syrah is built on density and pure, unbridled power, both signatures of this great Paso Robles site.

2011 Morlet "Coeur de Vallée" Napa Valley Red Wine

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better is the 2011 Coeur de Vallee, a 225-case blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc, all from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard. This sexy 2011 is a candidate for the wine of the vintage. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by notes of forest floor, violets, bouquet garni, black currant and blueberry fruit, stunning richness and no herbaceousness or astringency, and a long, lush finish. A terrific effort in this challenging vintage, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years. The Morlet brothers, Nick, who works at Peter Micha ...Read More »

2011 Kistler "Cuvée Natalie - Silver Belt" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

95 points Vinous: "An eccentric, beguiling Pinot, the 2011 Pinot Noir Silver Belt Cuvée Natalie is long on personality. Heady, exotic aromatics meld into a core of beautifully layered fruit in an expressive yet weightless, ethereal Pinot that constantly changes in the glass. Game, savory herbs and tangerine peel all add nuance on the finish. The Cuvée Natalie is mostly Swan clone Pinot, with some Calera. Anticipated maturity 2014-2023. (AG)" (2/2014) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, cherry-cola, incense and fresh rose, with a zesty mineral nuance adding lift ...Read More »

2011 DuMol "Ryan" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red. Brambly huckleberry and blueberry on the nose, along with hints of black cherry and earthy spices. Sappy, juicy and sweet, with a suave grain and lovely inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of wild berries, cola spices and sexy oak. Very supple pinot with a long, ripe, rising finish perked up by a peppery accent. (ST)" (5/2014) 92 points Vinous: "The 2011 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard hits the palate with a blast of dark red fruit. Intensity and power are the hallmarks, while subtlety and nuance take more of a back seat, at least today. Deeply expressive spic ...Read More »

Of the 2010 Saxum "Booker Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2010 Syrah Booker Vineyard - a blend of 81% Syrah and 19% Mourvedre - is about as textbook a representation of a Paso Robles Syrah as I can think of. Locked and loaded with notions of ripe black and blue fruits, smoke, bouquet garni, espresso, and licorice, it is unabashedly full-bodied, rich, and yet elegant on the palate. Showing real class, as well as first-rate freshness, superb depth and concentration, and masses of tannin, this blockb

2011 Aubert Carneros Chardonnay

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Chardonnay Carneros is classy, layered and exceptionally beautiful. Lemon, apricots, pears and white flowers all wrap around the palate, but what stands out most is the sheer silkiness and textural finesse of the wine. Moreover, tropical notes emerge with time, but in the end, this is a fairly restrained Chardonnay from Mark Aubert. Sweet floral notes meld into the soft, caressing finish. In 2011, Aubert lost a considerable amount of fruit in Hyde. The bulk of the wine was sold off, but Aubert bottled the best 40% and declassified it into the Ca ...Read More »

2011 Torrin "Akasha" Paso Robles Syrah

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Akasha is another beautiful effort in the vintage. Made from 100% Syrah and aged in 55% new French oak, it comes from cooler, east- and north-facing plots, and harvest was on November 4th, two weeks later than in 2010. Its deep purple color is followed by loads of cassis and blackberry-styled fruit, ground pepper, licorice and baking spice, and it hits the palate with a full-bodied, lightly textured and graceful feel. Carrying plenty of savory tannin, solid mid-palate depth and a brilliant length on the finish, it too will benefit from short-ter ...Read More »

2011 Ojai "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Syrah

93 points Vinous: "Lurid purple. Intense, expansive dark berry liqueur, allspice, violet and woodsmoke aromas are complemented by subtle hints of licorice and sandalwood. Sappy and incisive, offering vibrant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that slowly gain sweetness in the glass. The spice and floral notes come back emphatically on the youthfully tannic finish, which clings with superb energy and focus. Making so many different wines from different varieties and vineyards "keeps the mind active," according to Adam Tolmach, and it also "keeps you curious-it's imp ...Read More »

2011 Carlisle "Steiner Vineyard" Sonoma Mountain Syrah

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Yet another new wine, the 2011 Syrah Steiner Vineyard presents an intriguing melange of dark fruit, savory herbs, licorice and menthol. This medium-bodied, highly expressive Syrah should be approachable upon release. The 2011 has a gorgeous core of dark red and blue fruit and terrific overall balance without too many of cooler climate, gamier Syrah notes. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023. (AG)" (4/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark purple. Powerful, expansive aromas of dark fruit liqueur, sandalwood, mocha, star anise and potpourri.

92 points Vinous: "Brilliant ruby. Smoky, mineral-accented cherry and blackberry on the deeply perfumed nose. Vibrant, tightly wound black and blue fruit flavors pick up floral pastille and cracked pepper nuances with air. Taut and densely packed, finishing with noteworthy energy and length and harmonious tannins. This is still a baby.

2011 Law Estate "Sagacious" Paso Robles Rhone Blend

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another brilliant blend, the 2011 Sagacious is 38% Syrah, 34% Mourvedre and 28% Grenache, all of which spent 20 months in 40% new French oak. Black raspberry, cassis, white pepper, leather and crushed flowers all emerge from this beauty, and it stays weightless and elegant on the palate, with fantastic purity and freshness. It's hard to resist now, but it will evolve gracefully as well.

Full-bodied and voluptuously styled, with no hard edges and a downright sexy style, it stays graceful and nicely focused on the finish. Drink this beauty over the coming 5-6 years.

It's another smoking effort from this estate that gives up classy framboise, black licorice, chocolatey oak and toasted spice to go with a full-bodied, layered and thrillingly pure profile on the palate. Top class all the way, it will be better in another year and have upward of a decade of longevity.

2011 Diamond Creek "Gravelly Meadow" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Vinous: "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow is quite dark and imposing in this vintage. Sweet tobacco, menthol, cloves and mocha form a gorgeous fabric in this deep, supple Cabernet Sauvignon. I won't be surprised if the Gravelly Meadow turns out to be one of the overachievers of the year. There is a lot to like here. (Antonio Galloni)" (12/2014) 93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "The challenge with the trio from Diamond Creek is to array them in some sort of order.
