2011 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2011 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Silver Oak's 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was carefully and selectively harvested over more than a month at the end of the cool 2011 growing season. Blended with 14.5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 0.5% Malbec, the varietal composition was determined early in the aging process and the blended lots were then aged in new American oak barrels for two full years. In keeping with Silver Oak's practice of releasing the wine only when it is ready to drink, the bottles were then aged an additional two years before release. From the winery... Read More »

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.

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.

2011 Enkidu "Humbaba" North Coast Rhône Blend

A blend of 68% Syrah and 30% Petite Syrah with a splash of Alicante. From the producer: "The 2011 Humbabas shows its typical sweet root earthiness as in other vintages, which combine with candied cherries, toast and a little meatiness. While the texture is warm and luxurious, there is a nice backbone grip of tannin to hang the flavors on to a long finish. This Humbaba, like our previous vintages, continues to develop considerable complexity as it ages."

Perfumed and energetic in the mouth, with flavors of redcurrant, spices, licorice and flowers. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry, with good verve.

2011 Abreu "Las Posadas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $400)

About the producer: "Growing up, Napa Valley was David Abreu's playground as well as his classroom. Born into a family of ranchers, he spent the better part of his youth working in Napa's original vineyards. Over time, David's sense of what makes a site stand out—why one vineyard makes great wine and another's is just good—was sharpened beyond the ordinary. Eventually, intuition and experience led him to four exceptional vineyard properties: Madrona Ranch, Cappella, Las Posadas, and Thorevilos. He planned and planted each one. And with an uncompromising—... Read More »

2011 Kosta Browne Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

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.

Offers ripe, interwoven tannins. Drink now through 2024."

2011 Kosta Browne "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2011 Kosta Browne "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (94CG, 93VN, 93WS, 92ST). Connoisseurs Guide: " *Two Stars* If tilting a touch more to ripeness than most of its North Coast kin, this bottling does not err to softness, and its big-shouldered style comes with lots of firm muscle. It is a big, well-extracted, very substantial Pinot, to be sure, with abundant flavors of raspberries and sweet cherries, and it carries a strong imprint of rich oak. Its lengthy flavors are underpinned by a firm streak of tannin, and it ends with the kind of finishing grip that predicts a very good future." (10/2013)

2011 Carlisle "Carlisle Vineyard" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard is plush, rich and inviting. All sorts of black fruits, smoke, tar and graphite flesh out in this supple, deeply expressive wine. In 2011 the Carlisle is notable for its lush, rich, totally inviting personality. At the same time, it has fabulous detail and nuance for such a big, explosive wine. The tannins remain firm, but there is more than enough density in the fruit to provide balance. (AG)" (4/2013) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky purple. Heady scents of black raspberry, boysenberry, incense and candied violet, along with subtle notes of blac ...Read More »

2011 Lagier Meredith Mount Veeder Syrah

92 points Wine Spectator: "Firm, rich and dense, this muscle-bound effort is very tight and complex, focused on mineral, dark berry, tobacco, roasted coffee and mocha notes. Long and gripping on the finish. (JL)" (3/2014) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Meredith’s Midas touch with Syrah did not abandon her in the challenging 2011 vintage. Perhaps it’s the higher altitude Mt. Veeder AVA that was the key to her success. The dark ruby/plum-colored 2011 Syrah exhibits upfront, forward notes of red and black fruits intermixed with hints of menthol and spring flowers. With good ripeness, medium body, soft tannins and a ...Read More »

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. (ST)" (5/2014) 91 points James Suckling: "A red with blueberry and cherry character, plus hints of bark. Medium body with fine tannins and a savory finish. Fine wine for ...Read More »

2011 Peter Michael "Ma Danseuse" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The more mortal 2011 Pinot Noir Ma Danseuse exhibits sweet notes of raspberry jam, currants, camphor and powdered rock. This attractive, elegant, medium to full-bodied 2011 is more evolved and fruit-forward than the 2009 or the perfect 2010. The 2011 will drink well for 8-12 years. (RP)" (12/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Vibrant red berry and blood orange aromas, with sexy potpourri and incense qualities gaining power in the glass. Lively, high-pitched raspberry and bitter cherry flavors stain the palate, with dusty minerals providing spine and cut. The floral not ...Read More »

2011 Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard (made primarily from the Calera clone), which sees one-third new oak and is 100% destemmed, possesses lots of raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of underbrush and forest floor, and a nice meatiness to its texture. There has been a progressive trend by Kistler’s winemaking team and owners to harvest at slightly lower sugars, back off slightly on the percentage of new oak used, and bottle their wines earlier. All of this is designed to preserve as much fruit and freshness in the wines as possible. ( ...Read More »

Powerful, seductively perfumed aromas of red and dark berry preserves, Asian spices and potpourri, with cola and vanilla nuances adding complexity.

2011 Rhys "Family Farm Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Black raspberry, cherry pit, Asian spices and smoky oak on the nose. Fine-grained and sappy, with strong lift to the flavors of dark raspberry, bitter cherry and blood orange. Finishes long, on a faintly medicinal note, with sweet harmonious tannins and lingering spiciness. (ST)" (5/2013) 91 points Vinous: "The 2011 Pinot Noir Family Farm Vineyard is one of the wilder wines in this range of 2011 Pinots. Game, tar, licorice and dark fruits all take on an intensely mineral personality with distinct volcanic overtones reminiscent of Aglianico and Taurasi. The layered, ...Read More »

Of the 2011 Occidental (Kistler) "Bodegas Headlands - Cuvee Elizabeth" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir,Vinous writes: "Whereas the Cuvée Catherine is built on fruit, the 2011 Pinot Noir Bodega Headlands Cuvée Elizabeth is a much more inward, structured wine. Here the flavors are bright, precise and endowed with considerable energy. Cranberry, pomegranate, crushed rocks, rose petals and savory herbs are all supported by veins of underlying acidity and minerality that should allow the 2011 to develop beautifully in bottle ...

2011 Epoch "Veracity" Paderewski Vineyard Paso Robles Rhone Blend

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Remarkably inky in color for a Grenache-based blend, it features strong aromas of cedar, meat and deeply purple fruit. The soft, rich mouthfeel coats the palate like a luxurious lacquer, and features flavors of blackberry jam, macerated cherry and vanilla-spiced plums. The blend of florals, herbals, fruit and oak-driven tannins is masterful. Drink now by itself or with a peppercorn-crusted filet mignon." (9/2014) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Savory and meaty, with plenty of black cherry, raspberry, underbrush and spice, the 2011 Veracity has a great palate that carries pure, vibrant f ...Read More »

2011 Williams Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby. Showing a more brooding personality than the Sonoma County bottling, offering aromas and flavors of blackberry and bitter cherry and a hint of candied licorice. Plump and velvety in texture, with strong finishing punch and lingering smokiness. (ST)" (6/2013) Connoisseurs Guide: "Another in the extensive line of very good Pinot Noirs from this brilliant producer of widely admired bottlings, it drifts a bit into the realm of candied cherries with a whiff of raspberry finding its way into the mid-volume aromas. Medium-full-weighted and on the supple side in feel, its f ...Read More »

2011 Rudius Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

From the winery: "In 2011 our Tierra Roja Vineyard in Oakville and our Panek Vineyard in St Helena combined to produce an expansive yet sophisticated blend that is unmistakably Rudius. This is the only Cabernet we produced from the 2011 vintage, and is a best barrel selection from our two favorite vineyards. Everything you loved about our 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet can be found in this wine with a few extra surprises. The aromatics have a similar character to our Cabernets from earlier years with dark blackberry and warm baking spice notes, but you will a... Read More »

2011 Chanin Wine Company "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

96 points Vinous: "The 2011 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard is weightless and totally gracious, yet also incredibly deep and resonant, with an understated intensity that only Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo are capable of. Dark red cherries, plums, autumn leaves, pine and anise all take shape in the glass. Savory notes add complexity on the finish. This is a dazzling, phenomenal Pinot from Gavin Chanin, and easily one of the wines of the year. Chanin fermented the 2011 with 40% whole clusters and aged the wine in 25% new French oak barrels.
