2009 Baker Lane "Estate" Sonoma Syrah (Previously $30)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright purple. Youthfully wound-up aromas of blackberry, mulberry and violet, plus a strong note of licorice. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors are given an exotic character by notes of violet pastille and star anise. Supple and expansive on the firm, gripping, intensely spicy finish. This textbook syrah should age well. (ST)" (5/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Syrah Estate Reserve is a peppery, meaty effort that gives up plenty of spice, ground pepper, green olive and rendered bacon fat to go with a medium-bodied, moderately concentrated and focused palate.

2009 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The intensely flavorful wines from Rutherford's Trailside Vineyard have been part of the Heitz range since 1989. The vineyard is flanked by the Silverado Trail on one side and Conn Creek on the other and is certified organic. Aged in oak for three and half years, the winery descibes the 2009 vintage thusly: "Opulent hues of ruby and garnet draw you headlong into the glass; rich aromas of blackberry and a hint of nutmeg invite you to stay. With just the right amount of French oak there is a subtle sweetness that lifts and enhances the dark fruit character... Read More »

Fleshy and supple in texture, offering concentrated cherry compote and floral pastille flavors plus a suggestion of fruitcake. Takes a darker turn on the sweet, expansive finish, which features dusty tannins and lingering smokiness. I like the blend of power and energy here." (5/2014)

2009 Mayacamas Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

Originally built in 1889, Mayacamas is one of the Napa Valley’s oldest wineries. A long road winds up Mount Veeder to the historic stone winery and its estate vineyards, located at elevations between 1,800 and 2,400 feet above sea level. Previously owned by the family (from 1968 to 2013), the winery has been known for making lean, balanced, long-aging wines. Many vintages need a decade or more of cellaring to really find their greatness. These wines bring one back to the old days of California wine, when wines were allowed to age gracefully and develop i... Read More »

2009 Qupe "Bien Nacido Hilllside Estate" Santa Maria Valley Syrah

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Bob Lindquist has been making Hillside Estate since 1994, using fruit from Bien Nacido Vineyard’s Z Block, a sloping, southwest-facing planting on the cool, gravelly Santa Maria bench. It was planted to Lindquist’s specifications in 1992. This iteration feels lean and leafy at first, then it blooms in a graceful, silken thread of complexity, suggesting all sorts of appetizing nuances—cured pork, green peppercorn, charcoal, rose hips, blueberry skin, allspice, mint. In the end, it lands on a cool mineral note that lasts. It’s saturated with flavor but not ...Read More »

2009 Mount Eden "Reserve" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

95 points Vinous: "Mount Eden's 2009 Chardonnay Reserve boasts considerable depth and resonance. Graphite, smoke and butter add shades of dimension to the tropical, honeyed flavors. Even with its considerable oiliness and viscosity, the 2009 retains a gorgeous sense of energy. My impression is that the 2009 is likely to age at a slightly faster pace than some of the surrounding vintages, but in exchange it will drink well with minimal cellaring. Once again, the overall balance here is beyond impeccable. (AG)" (6/2015)

It is an impeccably balanced, refined wine loaded with class. In short, this is an American classic. The wine should be even better in another few years once the aromas flesh out.

95 points Vinous: "The 2009 Continuum is still in that part of its life where fruit and texture dominate, while the more aromatic qualities are yet to fully emerge. A rich, explosive wine, the 2009 can be enjoyed young for its exuberance, but the best is yet to come. Personally, I would wait a bit on the 2009. The finish is rich, layered and sumptuous. 95+ (AG)" (11/2013) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Sleek and understated, making its mark with firm, dense, tightly wound espresso, dried berry, crushed rock and black licorice flavors, with a finish that emphasizes the loamy earthiness. The tannins are fir ...Read More »

2009 DuMol "Clare - Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright gold. A wild, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes fresh pear, lemon and melon, along with note sf iodine and salty minerals. Stains the palate with deep orchard fruit and floral flavors, showing a powerful mineral overtone and excellent back end thrust. Finishes sappy and gently sweet, with superb clarity and subtle smokiness." (5/2012) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chardonnay Clare Hyde Vineyard is a beautiful, focused wine. It possesses the textural richness that is typical of this site, but with quite a bit of minerality and freshness as well. Clean saline notes fra ...Read More »

2009 Hall Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon makes a good introduction to the house style. Layers of expressive dark red fruit, flowers, licorice and mint are nicely woven into an expressive, textured style that is very appealing. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2017. (AG)" (12/2011) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red-ruby. Expressive, open-knit aromas of currant and chocolate. Supple and sweet but a bit simple today, with dark fruit, chocolate and earth flavors showing good thickness and intensity but in need of more energy. Finishes a tad herbal, with substantial gritty, tongue-staining tannins. (ST ...Read More »

2009 DuMol Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Ripe black-cherries are comfortably combined with a fair bit of toasty oak in vital young aromas of this nicely defined wine, and what is promised in the nose is delivered in kind by the plush, yet well-composed, flavors that follow. Like all of the very good 2009 DuMOL offerings, this one is simply brimming with fruit, but it needs to age past the tart edge of eleventh-hour acidity that presently cuts off its finish, and we recommend a wait of at least two or three years." (2/2012) 90 points James Suckling: "A solid wine with dried strawberry and cherry character with hints of lemo ...Read More »

2009 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

94 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2012* At first, this teases, fresh and snappy, displaying lively acidity and zesty citrus, green apple and pear notes. Turns pithy midpalate, but the flavors pour though on the finish, adding mouthwatering touches of light oak and mineral. Should only get better. Drink now through 2025." (7/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chardonnay Estate is incomparably elegant. Lemon, lime, crushed rocks, spices and mint are some of the many nuances that take shape as the 2009 opens up in the glass. The 2009 is unusually open and approachable for a young Mount Eden Cha ...Read More »

Of the 2008 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Utterly perfect, the 2008 Chardonnay Marcassin Estate is a dead-ringer for the 2007, but slightly richer and longer, as hard as that may be to believe. This extraordinary effort is unquestionably the 'Chardonnay of the Vintage.' In fact, it may be the 'Chardonnay of the Decade.'

2009 Kanzler Vineyards Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points Wine Spectator: "A firm, assertive style, showing well-structured wild berry and blackberry fruit, with touches of mineral and spice. Very tight and closed, yet dense and concentrated, ending with a mix of mineral and ripe berry. Drink now through 2019." K&L Notes: This ruby-hued Pinot Noir is is already alluring, with rose petal, blueberry, spice and earth notes on the nose, but on the palate its firmer acidity suggest that it will get even better with air or age. Right now its dominated by blueberry, blackberry and plum fruit with a little orange zest and a smidge of dark chocolate... Read More »
