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. (TF)" (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 Kapcsandy Family "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.

2009 Rudd "Oakville Estate" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The estate's 2009 Proprietary Red Rudd Estate wraps around the palate with silky dark fruit. Layered, sweet and sensual, the 2009 is laced with attractive scents of mocha, cloves and violets, all of which add complexity to the dark fruit. The 2009 needs a few years to soften, but ultimately it stands out for its textured personality and terrific balance. This undeniably appealing wine is likely to be at its best over the next 10-15 years, give or take. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

Bright, floral aromatics lead to expressive red fruit in this impossibly elegant, dazzling wine. A melange of rose petals, mint and licorice follows as the James Berry shows off its breathtaking clarity and finesse. Fine-grained, chalky tannins frame the exceptional finish.

Of the 2009 Williams Selyem "Westside Road Neighbors" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir,Connoisseurs Guide writes: "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. Its pulpy fruit reminiscent of dried cherries and raspberry preserves leads to an initially mouthfilling, viscous impression but also to flavors that are more than a little on the tig

Intense floral notes, licorice, new leather and black olives wrap around the fruit on the finish. This is another terrific showing.

Closes with excellent clarity and cut; there's zero excess fat here."

Blackberry tart, ripe blueberry, cassis, milk chocolate, licorice and sweet, smoky cedar flavors flood the mouth, dramatically huge and memorable, and lasting long into the finish. The tannins are obvious, but sweetly ripe and soft.

Even with all of its intensity, the 2009 has a silkiness that makes it incredibly delicious at this early stage. Red berries, flowers, tobacco and sweet herbs all flesh out on the generous, radiant finish. While many 2009s are a bit tight today, Montelena's 2009 Estate is showing very nicely, although it is keeping some cards close to the vest.

Menthol, pine and a host of other dark, balsamic notes wrap around the insistent, powerful finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)" (08/2011)

2009 Vineyard 29 "29 Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. Dark, brooding aromas of cassis, licorice, graphite and chocolate, lifted by a floral topnote. Lush, sweet and seamless, with excellent lift to its ripe black fruit and mineral flavors. Most impressive today on the very long, juicy back end, which features wonderful suave soft tannins for this site I underrated this wine from barrel last year. This superb wine is harmonious already but should really be cellared for at least a few years.

2009 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon RBS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously 350)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon RBS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard comes across as dark, plush and inviting, but with greater inner focus and minerality than some of the other wines here. Graphite, smoke, tar and licorice are some of the notes that wrap around the intense, juicy finish. I especially admire the way the RBS grows in the glass as it turns more explosive over time, yet never loses its more refined shades of expression. The RBS is 100% clone 337 from the B1 and B2 blocks. According to winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, it is the addition of fruit from ...Read More »

2009 Larkmead "Solari" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Solari is super-refined and polished. There is a pure sensuality and finesse to the Solari in 2009 that is striking. Expressive floral spices and red fruit notes form the layered, totally sublime finish. The 2009 isn’t as powerful or structured as the 2010, but then again, that is probably a good thing, as the wine will drink well earlier. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. (AG)" (12/2012) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark ruby-red. Very pure nose is dominated by kirsch, crushed rock and licorice pastille. Rich and chewy but a bit youthfully unforthcoming, ...Read More »

2009 Dehlinger Russian River Valley Claret

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dehlinger's 2009 Claret is surprisingly rich and bombastic. Dark black fruit, savory grilled herbs, graphite, menthol and licorice all jump from the glass. Though very much an extrovert, the 2009 possesses fabulous balance and plenty of harmony. (AG)" (4/2013) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Alluring aromas of cassis, cherry compote, Indian spices, iron and graphite, with a vanilla nuance that builds with air. A deep, youthfully structured wine that offers sweet red and dark fruit flavors laced with mocha, cola and vanilla. Concentrated and fleshy but comes across as lively, ...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 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 »

Brilliant acidity and tannins provide the perfect framework on this wine that’s drinkable now, and will develop over the next 15–20 years."

2009 Martinelli "Blue Slide Ridge" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge is one of the most exotic and unique Pinots being made in Sonoma today. Sweet exotic spices, mint, dried flowers, black cherries and plums are some of the notes that flow from this plush, resonant Pinot. The 2009 Blue Slide needs several years to soften, but it is striking even today. This Blue Slide Ridge is a big, big wine, but it also possesses stunning depth and complexity.
