2009 Roederer Estate "L'Ermitage" Anderson Valley Brut Sparkling Wine

92 points Wine Spectator: "A luxurious sparkler, with toasty brioche, mineral and lemon brûlée aromas and rich, complex flavors of crisp apple and raspberry, showing accents of fresh ginger and spice. Drink now through 2017." (9/2016) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "The 2009 vintage grew lush Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on the northern California coast, and that vintage character defines Roederer Estate’s tête de cuvée: It’s broad and rich, its ripe apple flavor threaded with the toastiness of barrel-aged reserve lots, while a bright line of acidity gives it a healthy persistence."

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 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

A pliant, sweet fruit bomb in the mouth, with fresh flavors of red fruit preserves and flowers. A refreshingly bitter herbal note adds complexity to the persistent, penetrating finish. This is already delicious. (ST)" (5/2011) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh, bright, ripe black cherry, raspberry and light floral scents lead off in this supple, fleshy, full-bodied red, which is complex and layered on the palate, maintaining its core fruitiness and gaining subtle touches of dark berry and spice.

2009 Merus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, saturated ruby-red. Deep aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, cola, chocolate, minerals and spicy oak. Dense, concentrated and sweet, with an almost confectionery quality to the chocolatey dark fruit flavors. A strong spine of tannins gives this very rich cabernet plenty of support. Finishes with powerful fruit and palate-staining length. I would probably opt to enjoy this wine over the next seven or eight years, for its youthful fruit."

2009 Palmina Santa Barbara County Nebbiolo

Bright strawberry, sweet rose, leather, star anise, cardamom, black-cherry-laced gingerbread and vanilla show on the rich and full nose.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (98RP, 97WS, 92VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Marcassin Vineyard is a gorgeous, clearly California version of a grand cru from Burgundy, such as Clos Saint-Denis or Clos de la Roche. This deep plum/garnet-colored wine offers intense berry fruit along with forest floor, spice box, earth and loads of plum, cherry and strawberry notes, moving toward darker fruits, as well as earthy, autumnal, foresty scents.

The 2009 Bettina stands out for its bright, high-toned aromas and flavors, as well as its intense, saline minerality. Everything about the 2009 is in the right place.

2009 Kapcsandy Family "Estate Cuvée - State Lane Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Cuvee State Lane Vineyard spent 20 months in 100% French oak, and like all the Kapcsandy dry reds came in under 14% alcohol, in this case, 13.5%. A true synthesis between Napa Valley’s bold and exuberant richness and the more subtle elegance of France, this wine exhibits a deep ruby/plum color, hints of white chocolate, black currants, and bouquet garni, decent acidity and a stylish, medium-bodied, spicy, ripe mouthfeel. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years. (RP)" (10/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Sm ...Read More »

Good as it is, it will gain traction over the next 15 years." (2/2012) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby.

It boasts tremendous depth and richness with a bit more structure than the Goldridge, although it is built along similar lines. Intense floral notes, licorice, new leather and black olives wrap around the fruit on the finish. This is another terrific showing. The 2009 is the first Syrah Estate to carry the Altamont vineyard designation, although previous years have also been made from this site.

Seamless and fine-grained, with lovely precision and lift to the dark berry and violet flavors. Impressively complex and intense wine with a light touch (especially for its 3.95 pH). Finishes with terrific sappy perfume and a tight tannic spine for extended aging.

2009 Promontory Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously 575)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Promontory is a magnificent Bordeaux-styled red offering up notes of burning embers, scorched earth (not terribly dissimilar from a top Pessac-Leognan such as La Mission Haut-Brion), black fruits, loamy undertones of minerality, and hints of camphor and background oak. Dense, masculine, rich and full, this 2009 is built for the long-term, although for a 2009, the tannins are remarkably well-integrated, giving the wine definition and structure. This 2009 should age for 25+ years. (RP)" (10/2013) 94 points Vinous: "The 2009 Proprietary Red Blend is dark, dense and vol ...Read More »

2009 Ramey "Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Born from grapes grown in one of the most acclaimed sites in Carneros and showing the fruity depth, the careful construction and the polish that only comes in outstanding years and from an accomplished hand, Ramey's Hyde bottling is a many-layered Chardonnay of great verve and vitality. Its neatly trim adjuncts of sweet oak never threaten to upstage the bright and slightly blossomy young fruit that runs its length, and subtle minerally accents lend a twist of real complexity. It, too, is a wine best left to aging, and there seems little question but that ...Read More »

Its impressive richness and quite adequate fruit will make it a candidate for most chicken dishes and for grilled salmon as well."

Densely packed and energetic, with a seamless texture to the sweet boysenberry and cassis flavors. Tannins arrive late and add grip to the very long, smoke-accented finish.

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "The release of this wine along with Williams Selyem's appellation bottlings might suggest that the winery sees it as one of its early maturing wines, but if that be the case, then we must respectfully disagree. This wine is slow to unfold in the glass, and despite the sweet, ripe character that emerges, it is also a wine that falls in distinct sections at this point.

2009 L'Aventure Cabernet Sauvignon Estate

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(includes 9% petit verdot; raised in 100% new oak): Inky purple. Assertively perfumed aromas of red- and blackcurrant, cola, vanilla, pipe tobacco and fresh flowers, with a subtle note of smoky herbs. Deeply pitched but energetic, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors complicated by floral pastille and mocha nuances. Juicy and focused cabernet with excellent finishing thrust, lingering spiciness and building tannins. This wine is still very young but offers excellent potential, as a bottle that had been open for two days proved to me. (JR)" (11/2011) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "T ...Read More »

2009 Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Syrah

91 points Wine Spectator: "Well-structured, intense and minerally, tightly wound, with dried berry, sage, roasted herb and cedar; a classy effort that is best cellared or given a long decant, as it is just beginning to ease into approachability." (2/2012) Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Well-ripened blackberry fruit is very much at center stage here, and while fit with a nice bit of sweet oak, the wine underplays the varietal's spicier side. Fairly full-bodied with ample tannins following hard on the heels of its comparatively rounded and fleshy beginnings, this is one for the cellar, and its rough edge ...Read More »

2009 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Syrah

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard opens with black pepper, game, creme de cassis and white flowers. Blackberries and blueberries appear later, adding further complexity on the finish. This is a decidedly cold-weather, angular Syrah that needs time in the bottle for some of the contours to soften. The Syrah is scheduled to be released in 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)" (8/2011) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright purple. Blackberry, cherry and pungent spices on the powerfully scented nose. Sappy and palate-staining, offering potent, impressively deep dark fruit and violet ...Read More »

2009 Colgin "Tychson Hill Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Vinous: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Tychson Hill is a gorgeous wine laced with dark red fruit, flowers and spices. It reveals the silkiest of tannins and remarkable grace throughout. All of the aromas and flavors wrap around beautifully to a deep, sensual finish layered with sweet floral notes. This is a sensual, totally dazzling Cabernet. In 2009 the blend is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. (AG)" (12/2011) 96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, saturated ruby. The vibrant, highly aromatic nose offers notes of plum, hard candy and incense. Superripe and voluminous ...Read More »

2009 Colgin "Cariad" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points James Suckling: "Ripe and rich fruit on the nose with dried berry and dark chocolate character. Full body, with a seamless and stunning texture. It goes on for minutes. Phenomenal texture. Sexy." (5/2014) 98 points Vinous: "The 2009 Cariad Red Wine is a blend of fruit sourced from Thorevilos and Madrona Ranch in St. Helena. It is deep, sensual and beautifully balanced in its dark black fruit, menthol, spices and licorice. This is a much firmer and more structured wine than the Tychson Hill. It doesn't have that wine's sheer early appeal, but it does have the structure to age gracefully for y ...Read More »

2009 Anomaly Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This big, strong Cabernet insists on pushing its blackberry, currant, plum and cocoa flavors across the palate. It's not subtle, and doesn't apologize for it. The grapes are from various vineyards in St. Helena, a warmer part of Napa Valley, and you can taste the incredible ripeness as well as the softness of tannins and acids that make drinking it so pretty now."

2009 Tensley "BMT" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "94+ points. An element of floral lift from the addition of 25% Colson Canyon Grenache distinguishes the 2009 BMT Syrah from the rest of the wines in this lineup. The BMT wraps around the palate with serious intensity. Layers of fruit continue to build as the wine flows through to its vibrant, perfumed finish. A last burst of juicy, ripe fruit rounds things out in compelling fashion. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021." (8/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, dense, extracted style, with loads of dried blackberry, wild berry, pepper, spice, sage and cedar that are compact and in nee ...Read More »

2009 Vineyard 7 & 8 "Estate" Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate comes across as sweet, voluptuous and sexy. It possesses striking inner perfume and fabulous expressiveness in its dark red fruit. Supple, silky tannins frame the exceptionally elegant finish. The 2009 is an immensely appealing, dazzling wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. (AG)" (12/2012) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** Vineyard 7&8’s Spring Mountain Estate Cabernets require aging to show their best, and so it is with this 2009. It’s dry, tannic and unrewarding now due to its astringency and acidity. But it has a terrific hear ...Read More »

2009 Lancaster "Nicole's Red" Alexander Valley Bordeaux Blend

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Proprietary Red Blend Nicole's is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based Bordeaux blend. At once powerful yet refined, the 2009 impresses for its intensity. Firm tannins support layers of expressive dark red fruit. The 2009 comes across as slightly burly and just a bit less polished than the 2010, a typical comparison of these two vintages across many wines. However, the 2009 remains a sexy wine with plenty of near and medium-term appeal. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)" (4/2013) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This wine is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% ...Read More »

2009 Rhys "Swan Terrace - Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* This beauty offers an almost hypothetical blend of the Skyline and Alpine as it combines the elegance of the former with the power and density of the latter. A spicy and relatively high-toned red Pinot fruit, red currant and cherry suffused nose introduces gorgeously detailed, intense and solidly structured flavors that display simply amazing length on the moderately austere finish. This is an admirably serious wine of crystalline purity and flawless balance." (10/2011) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Pure, expressive red fruit and floral aromas are complicated ...Read More »
