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 Ramey "Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay Back In Stock!
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 »

2009 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby. Vibrant nose suggests candied cherry, rose petal and smoky minerals. 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 Palmina Santa Barbara County Nebbiolo

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors’ Choice* Not only is this appellation blend the cheaper Nebbiolo offered by Steve Clifton's Italian varietal-focused winery, it's the best right out of the bottle. Bright strawberry, sweet rose, leather, star anise, cardamom, black-cherry-laced gingerbread and vanilla show on the rich and full nose. The tannins part to open dried strawberry, plum, rose hip and earthy flavors, proving both manly in presence but feminine in delicacy.

2009 Ojai "Melville Vineyard" Sta. Rita Hills Syrah

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Every bit as good, with a touch more gaminess and meatiness (which is common for the vineyard), the 2009 Syrah Melville dishes out superb blackberry, pepper, bacon fat and smoke as well as supple, voluptuous feel on the palate. Medium to full-bodied, with gorgeous purity of fruit and a solid mid-palate, it will have over a decade of longevity. (JD)" (8/2013) 93 points Vinous: "A distinctly powerful, brooding Syrah, the 2009 Melville is going to need some time to come around.

There is an inner sweetness and sheer depth that make the 2009 compelling. The 11% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre make themselves heard clearly in adding layers of depth and pure richness. Tar, anise and graphite meld together on the rich, dramatic finish. This is a striking wine endowed with tons of pure textural dimension. The 2009 was sourced from Eleven Confessions (72%), Cumulus (22%) and Bien Nacido (6%) vineyards. (AG)" (04/2012)

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.

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."

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.

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 »

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).

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 »

Plums, black currants, blackberries, menthol, licorice and sweet herbs jump from the glass as this intense, full-bodied wine shows off its considerable personality. Layers of fruit flow effortlessly as the 2009 continues to open up over time. This is a gorgeous 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. I was quite taken with these new and upcoming releases from Todd Anderson and his team headed by Assistant Winemaker Robert Hunt.

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.

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A full-bodied, fleshy wine, the 2009 Ingenuity boasts loads of dark fruit, licorice, spices and new French oak, all of which come together in an expression of the Paderewski vineyard that is exciting and intense from start to finish.

2009 Colgin "IX Estate" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

99 points James Suckling: "henomenal aromas and flavors of pure fruit with stones and rock. Turns to mint and eucalyptus. Full body, with powerful yet polished tannins. Creamy and fresh. Changes continually. The finish goes on for minutes Savory. And juicy." (5/2014) 98 points Vinous: "The 2009 IX Estate Red Wine is another breathtaking wine. It is the coolest, most inward of these 2009s. Graphite, tar, smoke, savory herbs, licorice and black fruit are some of nuances that emerge from the IX Estate. Here, too, the tannins are quite imposing at this stage, but the integration of fruit and structure is ...Read More »

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.

2009 Aubert "Larry Hyde and Sons Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard comes across as rich, round and layered. Dried apricots, peaches, flowers and tangerine are some of the notes that flow from this sumptuous, well-spoken Chardonnay. The wine turns more and more delicate with time in the glass. I loved it. This is a great showing from Mark Aubert.

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 Colgin "IX Estate" Napa Valley Syrah

97 points James Suckling: "This shows so much dark fruit, spice, berry and minerals incense. Full body, with lots of black pepper, spice and berry. It's so dense and beautiful. The purity of fruit is all there. Hard not to drink now. But will improve for many years ahead." (5/2014) 96 points Vinous: "The Araujo and Colgin Syrahs had something in common in that they were first and foremost wines of place. Along similar lines, 2009 Colgin's Syrah from IX Estate on Pritchard Hill, was very much defined by a hillside sense of structure.

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.

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 »

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.

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 »
