2009 Baker Lane "Estate" Sonoma Syrah Top Pick!
2009 Baker Lane "Estate" Sonoma Syrah

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) Antonio Galloni: "The 2009 Syrah Estate Vineyard shows the wilder side of the grape in its red cherries, black pepper, spices and herbs. Medium in body, it possesses good balance and energy through to the finish. (AG)" (8/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Syrah E ...Read More »

2009 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points James Suckling: "Stunning nose of lavender and flowers. Currants and raspberries. Subtle and intriguing. Full and dense but wonderfully balanced with firm and silky tannins and a persistent finish. Dusty texture. A wine so balanced that you want to drink it already. Better in 2017." (10/2012)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Dominus saw about 40% new oak compared to the 20% for Napanook. A seamless classic, it offers a symphony of red and black currants, Asian plum sauce, lavender, and underbrush. Sweet Christmas fruitcake characteristics emerge from this magnificent Dominus that finished at 14.5 ...Read More »

2009 Foggy Bridge San Francisco Bay Zinfandel (Previously $20)

Wine Enthusiast: "Daryl Groom is making these wines from Livermore Valley vineyards mostly and the wine is no doubt big in every way-15.6% alcohol with big tannins and big black, spicy fruit flavors hiding in there at first. It definitely needs time to open. And a giant, slathered-in-sauce kind of steak or other red meat." (11/2011)

2009 Woodenhead "Guido Venturi Vineyard" Mendocino County Zinfandel (Previously $30)

Wine Enthusiast: "Woodenhead does Pinot Noir well, too, but here it shows its skill with Zinfandel, producing a structured, peppery and leathery version bright in briary blackberry and plum. With fierce minerality at its core, this is a distinctive Zin for those who prefer their wines savory and earthy." (8/2013) K&L Notes: Mendocino County is possibly the most overlooked source for Zinfandel in California, with long-established vineyards which deliver substantial and structured expressions. The Venturi family has owned this vineyard site since 1924 which sits just west of the Redwood... Read More »

Fresh, incisive and floral on the palate, offering blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that coat the palate and pick up a subtle, refreshingly bitter orange marmalade quality. Sweeter on the chewy finish, leaving behind dark berry and licorice notes." (6/2014)

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.

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)

It immediately impresses with richness, smoothness of texture and complexity, offering waves of ripe summer blackberry, blueberry and smoke. The tannins are firm, dusty and soft, making the wine drinkable now and over the next six years with steak."

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mondavi's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is sumptuous and beautiful. Plums, mocha, cloves and pencil shavings are all woven together in this gorgeous, large-scaled Cabernet Sauvignon. All the elements are in the right place. Silky, nuanced tannins frame the voluptuous, caressing finish. A wine of centeredness and gorgeous precision, the 2009 is a true standout. The tannins need a few years to soften, but once that starts to happen, the 2009 should enjoy a long life. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot.

2009 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Mount Eden 2009 Pinot Noir Estate opens with striking aromatics that lead to an expressive core of sweet red berries, crushed flowers, tobacco and spices. 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. The Estate was not racked until it was prepared for bottling, which was done with no fining or filtration. (AG)" (8/2011)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red.

Juicy, smooth and harmonious; not hugely complex but a very well-judged blend, with pliant black cherry, menthol and mineral flavors and a graceful, long finish featuring sweet, firm tannins. I'd give this a few years in the cellar. 91(+?) points."

2009 Inglenook "Cask" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $70)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask shows a little more finesse than the 2010, with better balance between the fruit and tannin. Sweet red berries, mocha, flowers and mint are some of the many notes that emerge as this nuanced, silky Cabernet opens up over time. There is still plenty of 2009 structure, but it is nicely balanced. The 2009 Cask needs to be cellared or decanted for a few hours in order for all of the elements to come together.

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2009 Spottswoode "Family Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 96WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another super-impressive effort, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts stunning depth and sheer power. Black currants, pencil shavings, mocha, incense and melted road tar are all woven together gracefully in this powerful, opulent wine. The tannins remain firm, so another few years of cellaring is a must. There is serious density and sheer power to burn. Today the 2009 is a touch less vibrant than the 2010, but more overt and voluptuous. A brooding, muscular finish rounds things out beautifully.

2009 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Antonio Galloni: "Timing is everything. The 2011 harvest was the first at Shafer done with an optical sorter, a new tool that I am sure came in especially handy considering how much of the fruit had to be sorted and ultimately discarded. Although the flagship Hillside Select tends to get most of the attention at Shafer, this tasting once again confirmed that the other wines in the range are just as deserving of serious consideration.

It was planted to Lindquist’s specifications in 1992.

This was a fantastic lineup of wines by proprietor Matt Trevisan and all of the current releases have brilliant purity of fruit and a liv

2009 Pride Mountain "Vintner's Select" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another juicy, expressive wine, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner's Select shows considerably more textural roundness and depth than the straight Cabernet bottling. Plush, round and deep, the 2009 covers every inch of the palate with layers of fruit. Hints of smoke, menthol, tar and graphite add gravitas on the dark, brooding finish. (AG)" (12/2012)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This 100% Cabernet sure is oaky, but the butterscotch, toast and caramel flavors blend in seamlessly with the fruit, which is of gargantuan proportions. It’s intense in mountain-concentrated blackberries, bla ...Read More »

2009 Copain "Kiser En Haut" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Kiser En Haut is all rose petals, dark red cherries, spices and licorice. The wine boasts tremendous depth in a weightless style that is undeniably appealing. Layers of aromatics are woven throughout in this polished, utterly impeccable wine. There is an energy and vitality to the Kiser En Haut that is remarkable. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2019. (AG)" (2/2012)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. High-pitched red and dark berry aromas are complicated by fresh violet, lavender and cinnamon. Strikingly fresh and mineral-driven, offering concentrated but energ ...Read More »

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. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021." (2/2012)

2009 Screaming Eagle "Second Flight" Napa Valley Proprietary Red

93 points Antonio Galloni: "A beautiful expression of the year, the 2009 Second Flight emerges from the glass with intense layers of fruit in a style that very much recalls Screaming Eagle. Today, the 2009 comes across as a bit more structured and tannic than previous efforts. Some of that may be the vintage, but I imagine the addition of 9% Cabernet Franc over Merlot to the blend is also a contributing factor. Either way, the 2009 is a striking Second Flight endowed with serious depth, purity and finesse. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and sweet spices are some of the many nua ...Read More »

2009 Sine Qua Non "This Is Not An Exit" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An extended barrel-aged release, the 2009 Syrah This Is Not An Exit is 100% from the Santa Rita Hills Eleven Confessions Vineyard and checks in as a blend of 80% Syrah, 12% Grenache, 7% Roussanne and 1% Viognier that saw 41.5 months in 65% new French oak. Slightly exotic, with notions of kirsch, flower oil, smoked meats, licorice and graphite, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, loads of fruit and a blockbuster finish. More approachable than the 2010 extended barrel age Syrah, this beauty will still have 15+ years of longevity. Drink ...Read More »
