2010 Anderson's Conn Valley "Eloge" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Elsewhere $85) Top Pick!
2010 Anderson's Conn Valley "Eloge" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Elsewhere $85)

93 points Vinous: "Grilled herbs, tobacco, menthol, licorice and plums all take shape in the 2010 Eloge. Rich, layered and expressive, the 2010 is resonant and deeply expressive throughout. Gently spiced notes appear on the finish, adding dimensions of complexity and nuance. Today the 2010 is a bit closed in on itself and a touch compact, while the aromatics aren't quite as precise as they could be. I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted at Conn Valley this year. The wines are often terrific, but at the same time, they have also occasionally suffered from the pre ...Read More »

2010 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is, as always, a gorgeous wine, rich, balanced and delicious. It shows classic Napa Valley ripeness, with blackberry jam, plum, dark chocolate and sweet oak flavors. Plush and velvety doesn’t begin to do it justice. Despite its fabulous lushness, this is a wine to age. Depending on your taste, it will provide excellence from now until 2030. *Cellar Selection*" (12/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A gorgeously intense bouquet of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, black currants, blackberries, and subtle smoke and foresty aromas jumps from the glass of this full-bodied, rich, ...Read More »

2010 Williams-Selyem Russian River Valley Unoaked Chardonnay

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(12.9% alcohol): Pale gold. Spicy pear and orange aromas show impressive clarity and vivacity. Concentrated but light on its feet, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors that become sappier with air. Finishes tangy and very long, with resonating mineral and floral notes. (ST)" (5/2012) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "An interesting, crisp and bone-dry Chardonnay that succeeds in offering plenty of complexity despite the absence of any oak influence.

Densely packed and vibrant, with layered, seamless flavors of cassis, licorice and minerals. Shows an almost chocolatey ripeness yet retains outstanding verve.

Best from 2013 through 2023. *Top 100 Wines of 2012, Highly Recommended* (JL)" (8/2012) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Pungent, highly aromatic red berry and cherry aromas show an array of floral, Asian spice and herb nuances.

2010 Carlisle Bennett Valley Syrah

Lush, palate-staining black and blue fruit flavors show noteworthy intensity and focus and pick up a floral pastille nuance with air. Finishes broad and sweet, leaving smoke and licorice notes behind."

Sweet dark cherry, plum, cedar, tobacco, licorice and mint all take shape as this succulent, resonant wine shows off its expressive personality. Drink this deep, pliant Cabernet Sauvignon over the next two decades. The combination of ripeness from the late season hear and structure is hugely appealing.

Medium+-bodied, nicely balanced and with integrated acidity, it has outstanding mid-palate density, plenty of tannin and solid finish. Made from 100% Syrah that spent 20 months in 50-60% in new French oak, it will benefit from short-term cellaring and have 15+ years of overall longevity. (JD)" (8/2015) 90 points Vinous: "Ruby-red.

2010 Far Niente "Dolce" Napa Valley Dessert Wine (375ml)

Dolce is Napa's ultimate Sauternes-style dessert wine, with its noble botrytis underpinning and joyful acidity. A combination of late harvest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc from a 20-acre estate vineyard in the temperate town of Coombsville, the vineyard is naturally sheltered from the wind so that the morning fog and natural humidity lingers to allow botrytis to take hold on the grape clusters. The luxurious Sauternes style is completed by 32 months in new French oak before bottling. The wine will pair well with foie gras, poached figs, blue or washed-rin... Read More »

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Syrah Stockholm Syndrome is a monumental effort that will stand toe-to-toe with the greatest Syrahs in the world. A blend of 96% Syrah, 3% Roussanne and 1% Viognier, it was fermented with 16% whole cluster before spending just under 42 months in 100% new French oak. It offers an incredible array of sweet dark fruits, cassis, white chocolate, licorice and hints of bacon fat that meld perfectly with its full-bodied, seamless, layered and impeccably put-together palate.

It just floods the mouth with flavors of raspberry and cherry Pop-Tarts, with the most wonderful array of spices and a tender use of oak. Hard to keep from drinking it now, but it should age well over the next 8-10 years." (3/2013) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid red.

2010 Sine Qua Non "Stockholm Syndrome" Sta. Rita Hills Grenache

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The current release of the estate vineyard (a.k.a. the extended barrel-aged cuvee), the 2010 Grenache Stockholm Syndrome is an incredible effort that I couldn’t find a fault with. A blend of 75% Grenache, 22% Syrah, 2% Roussanne and 1% Viognier, all from the Eleven Confession Vineyard, it spent just under 30 months in 22% new and 78% used French oak prior to bottling. Locked and loaded, it knocks it out of the park with its cassis, licorice, smoked duck, spice-box and exotic herb-styled bouquet.

Best from 2015 through 2020." (11/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good dark red. Aromas of redcurrant, licorice and pencil lead smell quite dry. Then creamy in the middle, with a fine-grained texture and sappy freshness to the flavors of currant, mocha, tobacco and earth. Finishes with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and an exotic chocolate quality. I find this better-balanced than the 2009 version" (6/2013)

2010 Carlisle Sonoma County Zinfandel

Dark red fruit, flowers, tobacco and wild herbs wrap around the palate in this fleshy, seductive Zinfandel. There is a flashy, exotic quality to the fruit that is hard to describe. Let's just say it is awfully hard to put the glass down. The 2010 is 85% Zinfandel and 15% Petite Sirah from vineyards in Russian River, Sonoma and Dry Creek Valleys. There is no question this is one of the finest values in California. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. (AG)" (2/2012) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Dense and firmly structured, but ...Read More »

There is a purity to the fruit in the 2010 that stands out. This is going to be a fascinating wine to follow over the next few years. Still, it is impossible not to love the 2010 today. Varietal notes abound, including hints of savory herbs, crushed rocks and white flowers. The 2010 is fabulous juice. (AG)" (7/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky purple.

It can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15+ years."

The nose is slightly more restrained than in the regular bottling, but there is no doubting the Special Selection is a cut or two above the Napa bottling when it hits the palate. Extraordinary purity of fruit, creme de cassis, licorice and incense all emerge from this full-bodied, iconic classic. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 25+ years.

An exotic, utterly beguiling Cabernet, the 2010 is long on personality and character. Tar, licorice and iron are some of the dark, brooding notes that add muscle and an element of darkness that is undeniably appealing. Readers will need to give the 2010 at least a few years in bottle.

It is stunningly rich, with classic, fragrant notes of blackcurrants, blackberries, vanilla, graphite and spring flowers. It exhibits an opaque purple color, with a full-bodied, massive mouthfeel, but no heaviness, and again, a flawless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood. It’s classic California Cabernet, but beautifully put together, showing impeccable craftsmanship and fabulous potential. This is obviously a very young, infantile style of Cabernet that won’t hit its prime for at least another decade and last close to half a century, based on how older vintages that were less well-endowed have matured from Shafer.

Full-bodied and layered on the palate, with brilliant mid-palate concentration, superb freshness, and masses of tannin, this brilliant Rhone blend from Paso Robles will stand toe-to-toe with the best wines out there, but it is not for those seeking instant gratification and will require 4-5 years of bottle age.

Again, brilliant winemaking has turned out a terrific 2010 that should evolve for two decades or more. Readers should not miss this portfolio of compelling 2010s. Kudos to former Ambassador to Austria, Kathryn Hall." (10/2013) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Offers bold, ripe, opulent tiers of dark berry fruit, plum, currant and blackberry flavors, with pretty ...Read More »

2010 Eric Kent Russian River Valley Chardonnay Back In Stock!
2010 Eric Kent Russian River Valley Chardonnay

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright yellow. Pungent citrus and orchard fruits on the nose, complicated by notes of smoky lees, minerals and ginger. Pliant and densely packed, offering sappy pear and tangerine flavors that pick up a licorice quality with air. Rich but energetic chardonnay, finishing with very good punch and spicy persistence." (5/2012) K&L Notes: The majority of the fruit for this 272-case Chardonnay production comes from the Stiling Vineyard, with small amounts from Wildcat Mountain and Green Acres Hill. It's really lovely, with stone fruit, citrus and pear aromas and ... Read More »

2010 Eric Kent "Small Town" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Aromas of black raspberry and incense, with a sexy floral quality gaining strength with air. Juicy, incisive red and dark berry flavors show a suave marriage of richness and vivacity, with an alluringly sweet quality coming up with air. Spicy and focused on the finish, with lingering cherry and violet pastille qualities."

2010 Williams Selyem "Eastside Road Neighbors" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Keen and concentrated ripe-cherry fruit governs all aspects of this deeply drawn youngster, yet the wine is far more than 'fruity,' and its inviting sense of succulence is matched by a bit of oaky complexity and fine, enlivening acidity. It may not be an especially nuanced Pinot just yet, but it has the vigor and depth to grow past its delectable juiciness and into an increasingly interesting wine." (2/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Explosively perfumed aromas of candied red berries, rose and woodsmoke, with a spicy overtone. Juicy, penetrating red and ...Read More »

2010 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Insignia is striking. Cool, mineral notes frame a core of blue and black fruit, licorice, spices, smoke, and melted road tar as this stunning wine opens up in the glass. Totally alive in the glass, the 2010 captures the essence of this cold, late harvest. Hints of menthol, violets and crushed rocks all flow through to the incisive, vibrant finish. My sense is that the 2010 is still holding back much of its significant potential. The 2010 is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot and 2% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030.

2010 Saxum "Heart Stone Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More dense and rich, the 2010 Heart Stone Vineyard is a co-fermented blend of 51% Syrah and 49% Grenache that comes from a small 7-acre, south-facing vineyard located on the western side of Paso Robles. Aged mostly in large oak puncheons for 20-28 months, it offers up a savory, complex bouquet of kirsch and blackberry-like fruit, meat juice, Provencal herbs, dried licorice, and dusty minerality. Gorgeous on the palate as well, with a deft, elegant texture, building richness, and layers of chewy tannin, this beauty is reasonably approachable now, yet will ...Read More »

2010 Kosta Browne "Koplen Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Pinot Noir Koplen Vineyard is a classic Russian River Pinot. Plums, black cherries, mint, licorice and sweet spices all flesh out in the glass. I very much like the length and overall sense of polish. In 2010 the Koplen is striking in its beautiful balance and radiant, supple personality. The Koplen is among the wines that were partially fermented in oak vats, 20% in this case. In 2010, the Koplen also includes 20-25% whole clusters. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. (AG)" (4/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Heady aromas of strawberry, cherry-cola, potpourri ...Read More »

Lush and creamy, with powerful peach and floral honey flavors enlivened by a bitter note of citrus zest on the back half.
