2009 Windy Oaks Estate "Limited Release Wild Yeast - Schultze Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (Previously $50)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Potent red and dark berry aromas are complicated by floral and Asian spice nuances, picking up smoke and earth accents with air. Juicy, expansive black raspberry and cherry flavors show good ripeness and depth, with zesty acidity adding spine and focus. The cherry note carries through a long, spicy and tightly focused finish, which shows an appealing seamless character. (ST)" (5/2012) 90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An attractively fresh and airy mix of red berries, plum and soft spice nuances introduce very rich and solidly voluminous flavors that exude a distinct note of mo ...Read More »

2009 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Montelena's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate wraps around the palate with serious depth. 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. I imagine the 2009 will start to enter its prime drinking window around age 8-10 and drink well for at least another decade be ...Read More »

2009 Morning Dew Ranch "Jan's Cuvee" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

This highly sought-after wine has been described as the lovely "swan song" of famed vintner Burt Williams. After selling Williams-Selyem Winery, Williams retired to the cool reaches of Anderson Valley, and planted a vineyard to various Pinot clones and selections: Rochioli, DRC suitcase, 23 (Mariafeld), 115, 777 and 828. While this is a one-time release, Williams-Selyem and a few other select Pinot producers continue to make wines from Morning Dew Ranch fruit. William Gaffney, aka the Prince of Pinot, reviewed this rare wine: "Moderately dark reddish-pur... Read More »

2009 Merryvale "Profile" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This falls midway between the spectacular '08 and the elegant '07. Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, its grapes were grown in St. Helena. The wine shows softly lush tannins and deep, complex flavors of red fruit, berry, licorice, cocoa and mineral that easily stand up to 100% new French oak. Don't open it until at least 2018, and it should develop for many years afterward." (8/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Profile bursts on the palate with an exciting array of black fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and grilled herbs. It is a muscular wine endowed with considera ...Read More »

2009 Justin "Isosceles Reserve" Paso Robles Bordeaux Blend

Complex, spice-accented aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, vanilla, mocha and pipe tobacco, with a smoky nuance building with air. Lush, palate-staining blackberry and blueberry flavors show impressive depth and surprising energy, with gentle acidity providing lift. Closes sweet and very long, with velvety tannins and a lingering vanilla note. (JR)" (11/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Thick, rich and loamy, with dried currant, berry, black licorice and spice flavors woven into the full-bodied texture, ending with dried herb, olive and cedar notes.

2009 Lewis Cellars "Barcaglia Lane" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

91 points Wine Spectator: "Touches of creamy, toasty oak fold in with a range of ripe, intense apple, pear, honeysuckle, fig and honeydew melon flavors in this full-bodied white, which is still a bit pithy yet gains subtle flavor nuances on the finish. Drink now through 2016." (07/11) Lewis' Barcaglia Lane bottling receives four additional months of barrel aging on the lees resulting in broad texture and fine detail. It is sourced from a single rolling vineyard in the Russian River Valley, part of the famed Dutton Ranch. Planted in 1998, the site consis... Read More »

Bid on this 3-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 wine is full-bodied, with great intensity, sweet tannins and good acidity. Drink it over the next decade or more. (RP)" (08/2015)

Serious and a bit brooding, with slow-to-open dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and a velvety texture. Gains energy and spiciness with air and finishes with lively mineral snap and a lingering note of candied violet. For a richly flavored wine this shows a surprisingly light touch."

2009 Williams Selyem "Westside Road Neighbors" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

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. 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 tight side ...Read More »

2009 Saxum "Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Red Blend

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Paderewski Vineyard is a new bottling from a site Smith developed for Bill and Liz Armstrong, the owners of Epoch. 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. This shows superb aromatic complexity and tons of nuance to match its absolutely striking personality. It is a dazzling effort, especially for a young vineyard in just its third leaf.

2009 Brand Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a super-exciting first release. Layers of dark red fruit, mint, spices and licorice are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. Tasting this wine, it is quite clear that the elements aren’t yet full formed. Still, the qualities that are showing are pretty spectacular. The 2009 is cool, structured and exceptionally polished. Red berries, mocha, flowers and minerals frame the long finish. This is a decidedly reticent 2009, but there is serious power and depth. The 2009 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak bar ...Read More »

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. The aromas of green apples and citrus that greet you are unmistakable.

2009 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is all minerals, graphite and pure Howell Mountain. Layers of dark red fruit come to life in this articulate, pedigreed Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 needs another few years in the bottle, but it is already quite striking, especially with some time in the glass. Saline notes frame the long finish. The 2009 is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% St. Macaire and 2% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

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

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 Hanzell Sonoma Valley Chardonnay

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2012* A tremendous Chardonnay. As always, the winery’s ’09 is bone dry, crisply acidic and minerally. You might call it austere at this point, with its tart finish of grapefruit. But a great Hanzell Chardonnay will improve for at least a decade, possible two, and this is a great Hanzell Chardonnay. The score reflects what the wine likely will be approximately eight years down the road." (2/2012) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale bright yellow. Austere aromas of grapefruit pith and stone, with high notes of lavender and violet. Dense, rich, seamless and li ...Read More »

2009 Keenan Napa Valley Merlot

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Merlot is a bigger, richer wine than the 2010, but it doesn't have that wine's finesse or vibrancy. Still, there is an immediacy and a juiciness in the 2009 that is highly appealing. Hints of sweet tobacco, crushed flowers and incense are layered into the expressive finish. The tannins remain a bit rough and polished within the context of the estate's finest wines. The Merlot is made from a combination of Spring Mountain and Carneros Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024." (12/2012) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Dark in tone, this is a plump, juicy merlot, its texture enrich ...Read More »

There is a saline note woven throughout the fruit that adds considerable freshness, verve and cut. White flowers, lemon and spices frame the long finish. I very much like the energy here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021. (AG)" (2/2012) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Hazy greenish gold. Spicy, leesy, smoky aromas of lemon pith, melon and hazelnut.

Heady, exotically perfumed bouquet of dried pear, peach pit, candied lemon, iodine and smoky lees, plus a suave floral quality and a touch of anise. Enters rich and weighty but quickly gains tension, offering zesty citrus and orchard fruit flavors and an intense, almost saline mineral underpinning.

(ST)" (5/2011) 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An impressively complex and highly perfumed nose offers up interesting notes of tangerine, citrus, spice and diverse ripe red berry fruit aromas. The suave, generous and quite for ...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 »

2009 Williams Selyem "Vista Verde" San Benito County Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red. Deep, sexy aromas of blackberry liqueur, cherry, vanilla bean, rose and Moroccan spices. Broad, sappy and sweet, offering palate-coating red and dark berry flavors and silky tannins. With air, this picks up exotic floral notes that carry through the smoky, lip-smacking finish. On the muscular side but not lacking for energy. Give this a little air. (ST)" (6/2011)

2009 Saxum "Booker Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Booker Vineyard is 70% Syrah and 30% Mourvedre from one of the rockiest, steepest hillsides in Paso Robles. Layers of dark fruit, spices, tar and licorice emerge from the glass in this deep, sensual wine. Booker usually sees the highest percentage of new oak, and elements of spiciness come through on the finish, although some of the oakiness blows off with time in the glass. Booker is another site Smith planted and continues to pull fruit from, in this case three blocks of Syrah and one of Mourvedre. In 2009 there were two lots; the first 100% S ...Read More »

2009 Copain "Wentzel" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Wentzel emerges from the glass with heady dark cherries, spices, licorice and new leather. This is one of the more textured 2009s Pinots at Copain. Waves of fruit flow effortlessly to the long, pure finish. The Wentzel is slightly closed at present, but it shows fabulous length and should drink beautifully once the layers of flavor flesh out over time. The finish remains totally soft and inviting. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021. (AG)" (2/2012) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid red. Sexy aromas of candied red fruits, dried rose, allspice and minerals, with a suav ...Read More »

2009 Williams Selyem "Coastlands Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Brooding, pungent nose suggests black raspberry, cherry-cola and Moroccan spices, along with notes of dried rose and black tea. The palate offers flavors of sappy dark berry compote and candied violet, with a building spiciness. Lots going on here! Finishes with solid grip and excellent persistence, the violet and spice notes emphatically repeating. This should be a slow ager. 93+ (ST)" (6/2011) 92 points Wine Spectator: "This beautiful mix of complex flavors shows smoky, toasty oak accents to the ripe plum and raspberry flavors. Deftly balanced, intense and focu ...Read More »
