2009 Palmina Santa Barbara County Nebbiolo

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors’ Choice* Not only is this appellation blend the cheaper Nebbiolo offered by Steve Clifton's Italian varietal-focused winery, it's the best right out of the bottle. Bright strawberry, sweet rose, leather, star anise, cardamom, black-cherry-laced gingerbread and vanilla show on the rich and full nose. The tannins part to open dried strawberry, plum, rose hip and earthy flavors, proving both manly in presence but feminine in delicacy.

2009 Stony Hill Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay

Founded by Fred and Eleanor McCrea on Spring Mountain in Napa Valley, Stony Hill celebrated its first harvest in 1952. From the winery: "Our 2009 vintage is a perfect example of the winemaker’s art. Mike Chelini has been crafting Chardonnay at Stony Hill for thirty-nine years, always bringing out the essential characteristics of our hillside grown grapes.

2009 Vérité "La Muse" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 La Muse (86% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec; 14.5% alcohol) is a blockbuster offering complex, intense notes of Asian plum sauce, figs, black currants, white chocolate and cedar. The wine reveals an extra level of texture and richness along with full body, an unctuous texture, and a super ripeness and richness that does not go over the top. The tannins are noticeable, but well-integrated as are the new oak and acidity. This big, backstrapping, Merlot-based wine is meant for long-term cellaring.

2009 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Vinous: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard is a relatively immediate Marthas, with a real feeling of mid-palate density and weight that is almost out of character for this estate. Sweet, silky tannins give the 2009 much of its succulence. Scents of mint, pine and eucalyptus wrap around the juicy, inviting finish. (AG)" (10/2015) Wine Spectator: "Shows notable herb, mint and bay leaf overtones, with a tight, dense core of dried currant and berry that is slow to open. This is very shut down for now, and should age for a long time. The flavors build on the finish. Drink no ...Read More »

2009 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard tends towards a dark red, almost black expression of wild cherries. It is an intensely coiled, powerful wine in need of a few years of cellaring. The mineral notes speak very clearly in this pointed, beautifully articulated Pinot. With time in the glass the wine’s inner perfume begins to emerge, but the best is years away. The chiseled, pure finish leaves a lasting impression. This is the most finely-knit, complete wine in the Rhys portfolio.

In its youth it’s all about primary, jammy raspberry and cherry fruit. On the edges are fine acidity, smooth tannins and a perfect appliqué of oak.

Juicy, tight and youthfully imploded but minerally and strikingly intense, with zesty red berry and bitter cherry flavors and solid tannic spine. Showing more minerality than sweet fruit today, this is built to age. Finishes with excellent length and resonating spice and floral notes.

2009 Aubert "Lauren Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

It also shows a bit more freshness and brightness than the other 2009s. Tangerine, mint, light floral honey and spices are all beautifully layered into the detailed, nuanced finish. The French oak is better balanced here than in the Reuling, which allows the fruit to show the fullest breadth of its personality. Here, too, the finish seems to expand in every direction.

Ends with fine-grained tannins well-suited for the wine's weight and style. Drink now through 2023." (11/2012) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revana's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon presents an intriguing and highly attractive melange of plums, espresso, menthol, tobacco and sweet spices. This is one of the softer, suppler wines of the vintage, and as such, it will drink well pretty much upon release. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. (AG)" (12/2012)

Tar, incense, graphite, plums and grilled herbs all flow from this dark, sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. The balance of fruit, tannin and acidity is masterful. The Pluribus is always the most intense of the BOND wines. It can at times be a bit of a brute, but the 2009 is as refined as it gets. There is no shortage of class and integrity here.

Zinfandel, Syrah, Petit Sirah and Mourvedre are planted in separate plots but co-fermented. Layers of dark fruit meld into flowers, mint, sweet spices, menthol, eucalyptus and plums, with marvelous density and harmony.

Endless layers of fruit saturate the palate as this rich, intense wine conquers the heart and intellect. A totally vivid wine, the 2009 is even more impressive from bottle than it was from barrel. Over the time I followed it, the 2009 gained finesse and elegance in the glass, which bodes quite well for the future.

Then sweet, lush and fat, with harmonious acidity and notes of citrus peel and herbs giving shape and lift to the middle palate. Wonderfully creamy, deep wine with a smooth, very long finish.

One of the best second wines I have tasted from this winery, it offers up much of the same character as its bigger sibling, but softer tannins and a more near-term accessibility give the wine immediate appeal.

93 points Wine Spectator: "Beautifully balanced, rich and well-proportioned, with tiers of butterscotch, fig, melon, hazelnut and spice flavors. This is full-bodied, yet very elegant and stylish for its size and depth of flavor. Drink now through 2018. (JL)" (6/2011) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chardonnay Belle-Cote is once again decidedly extroverted. Layers of rich tropical fruit, passion fruit flowers and pistachio are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. The aromas and flavors are intense, but texturally, the wine is less interesting, as elements of heaviness are present. Anticipated ma ...Read More »

2009 Carlisle "Cardiac Hill" Bennett Valley Syrah Back In Stock!
2009 Carlisle "Cardiac Hill" Bennett Valley Syrah

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Syrah Cardiac Hill is a gorgeous, thrilling wine laced with bacon fat, tapenade, savory herbs and plums. It possesses gorgeous aromatic delineation and fabulous length. The intense, mineral-drenched finish argues for cellaring the wine for at least another 2-3 years, but readers are going to have a very hard time keeping their hands off this gem. Cardiac Hill is a very cold site. The wine (100% Syrah) was vinified with 40% whole cluster and aged in French oak barrels, 27% new. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

2009 Kapcsandy "Endre" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

92 points Vinous: "The 2009 Endre offers up hints of sage, rosemary, wild cherries and tobacco, all supported by vibrant yet-well-integrated tannins. Deceptively medium in body, the 2009 boasts considerable structure and intensity to match its highly appealing mid-weight personality. Like many 2009s, today the Endre is a bit tight and in need of another year or so of bottle age. The blend is 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Verdot. (AG)" (12/2012) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Superripe, full-blown aromas of kirsch, blackberry liqueur, dark cherry, ...Read More »

Twomey is the sister winery of Silver Oak. The 2009 Merlot contains a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, too, and comes in at a table-friendly 13.7% alcohol by volume. The winery's vintage notes: "The fruit for this wine is sourced exclusively from our Soda Canyon Vineyard in southeastern Napa Valley.

2009 Roar "Garys' Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2009 Roar "Garys' Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Garys’ is an overt, juicy Pinot, with less in the way of aromatic complexity but more fruit than the Rosella’s, largely owing to the warmer microclimate here. Sensual and caressing through to the finish, the Garys’ bottling is another stunningly beautiful wine from Roar. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019. (AG)" (8/2011) 92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** Potent and powerful, fully ripe fruit sits at the center of this very lush and wide-open working, yet there is a fine sense of polish apparent as well, and the wine is as bright and balanced as it is rich.
