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. (MK)" (7/2016) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by notes of zesty minerals and fresh l ...Read More »

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 »

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Sea Smoke "Ten" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (92ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Pungent, expressive bouquet offers dark berry compote, cola, vanilla bean and incense qualities, along with slow-building spiciness and notes of clove and mocha. Lush, palate-coating blackberry and mulberry flavors are lifted by gentle acidity and complicated by notes of spicecake and candied violet. Tannins build with air and carry through a very long, sweet, oak-spicy finish. This is a baby." (11/2011)

2009 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Monte Bello ,72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot is simply magnificent. Layers of dark red fruit, flowers, spices and graphite are all woven together in this utterly impeccable wine. The 2009 is an especially huge, intense Monte Bello, yet a sexy, silky core of fruit lies within its imposing frame. Everything comes together in this glorious, radiant wine. Last year the 2009 had some pretty stiff competition from the 2010, but today it is simply firing on all cylinders. Eric Baugher describes 2009 as a year with cold weather ea ...Read More »

2009 Nickel & Nickel "Branding Iron" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Beautiful in every respect, this has ripe flavors of blackberries, blueberries and cassis. It shows the classic Oakville structure of firm, hard tannins, elegance and ageworthiness. Made from 100% Cabernet, it will reward holding until at least 2018." (11/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Branding Iron Vineyard is one of the richest and most powerful wines in this lineup from Nickel & Nickel. At the same time, it has plenty of near-term appeal. A dark, voluptuous wine, the 2009 flows with the essence of blueberry jam, blackberries, black ...Read More »

2009 Harlan "The Maiden" Napa Valley Proprietary Red (Previously 215)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Proprietary Blend The Maiden wraps around the palate with dark cherries, plums, cinnamon, cloves and new leather. This is a surprisingly muscular style for the year, with quite a bit less of the early appeal than is found in many other wines. The aromas and flavors remain dark, powerful and brooding from start to finish. Flowers, cinnamon and mint add further complexity on the finish.

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 Forman Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon appears to have clamped down a bit since I tasted it last year. An unusually up-front, juicy wine from Forman, the 2009 is laced with expressive dark red fruit, flowers, mint, cinnamon, licorice and menthol. There is a softness and suppleness to the 2009 that is impossible not to love. Layers of fruit continue to build on the juicy, silky finish. The 2009 looks to be one of the more accessible wines of the vintage, but it also needs at least several years to lose some of its baby fat and primary notes. The French oak is also a ...Read More »

Zesty acidity adds lift and cut to the deep, sappy raspberry and cherry flavors, with a smoky quality emerging with air. The lively, precise finish lingers with outstanding floral persistence."

Fat, broad and highly concentrated but a bit tight today, with superb energy to the youthful flavors of raspberry coulis, graphite and herbs. This boasts remarkable inner-mouth energy for a pinot at this octane level. Finishes with broad, oak-driven tannins and a surprisingly light touch. Aeration brought an emerging spicecake character.

Firm tannins provide the backdrop for layers of dark red fruit in this super-expressive, racy Cabernet Sauvignon. Tar, licorice, menthol, iron and smoke nuances develop in the glass, adding a sense of gravitas. This is a striking, totally beautiful wine from Robert Craig. The 2009 Mount Veeder is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. (AG)" (12/2011) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full ruby-red.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2023. (JL)" (4/2013) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big, imposing wine, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Rubicon is going to need some time to shed its tannin and baby fat.

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.

The wine’s full-bodied mouthfeel, moderately high tannins, and spicy, structured personality result in a masculine-styled 2009 that requires 4-5 years of cellaring. It should last for three decades.

2009 Calera "Ryan" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Calera "Ryan" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir (94W&S, 93RP, 92BH, 92VN, 90WE). Wine & Spirits: "The vines in the upper block of Ryan, rising to 2,500 feet, are just settling in. Jim Ryan, Calera’s vineyard manager, planted it in 1998 at a higher density than Calera’s other sites, most of which date to 1975. At first, this wine appears to be a big, extracted fruit bomb until, hours later, the tannins begin to breathe and the texture broadens, the fruit filling in the tannins on the sides of the mouth. A day later, the tannins and fruit have merged back into the middle of the wine, focused on dark, mineral intensity, on scents of smoke and earth, carrying plenty of extract within a Pinot Noir frame. While this may seem like a stylistic departure for Calera, it could also be read as a youthful interpretation of the Mount Harlan site. It’s formidable and delicious in any case, especially if decanted for roast duck. " (06/2012)

Exotic spiced notes linger on the finish. The 2009 boasts serious intensity, richness and depth, but it remains quite tannic and in need of further bottle age. The vintage saw both frost and drought, two conditions that are a little unusual in the same year.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Reed Vineyard is one of the more direct wines in this lineup. There is an exotic quality to the spice, orange peel and tobacco notes that is deeply intriguing, but in the end the fruit is more of a soloist than an orchestra. None of the Calera wines can be called straightforward, but the Reed is one of the most simple. Still, within the broader context of California Pinot Noir, it is fabulous – just not as fabulous as its stable mates! Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024 ... (AG)" (08/2012)

2009 Aubert "UV Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir UV Vineyard once again shows the richness and heft of the clay-rich soils in this site. This is an especially dense Pinot, even by Aubert’s standards, that needs another year or so in bottle to start shedding some of its baby fat. Despite the wine’s richness, there is more than enough underlying minerality to give the wine a sense of proportion and harmony. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. (AG)" (2/2012) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Pure and elegant, this supple-textured wine shows dense loamy earth character and layers of complex plum, black cherry, blackberry, un ...Read More »

2009 Justin "Isosceles Reserve" Paso Robles Red Blend

(JL)" (11/2013) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining ruby. 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) ...Read More »

2009 Ovid Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend Back In Stock!
2009 Ovid Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Ovid is stunningly beautiful. At times it shows a little more depth, power and richness than the Hexameter, but both wines are compelling. Endless layers of fruit saturate the palate as this rich, intense wine conquers the heart and intellect. A totally vivid wine, the 2009 is even more impressive from bottle than it was from barrel. Over the time I followed it, the 2009 gained finesse and elegance in the glass, which bodes quite well for the future. Intense graphite, crushed rocks and pencil shaving nuances add energy to the polished, huge fini ...Read More »

2009 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Bone Rock is a round, enticing red laced with sweet, succulent dark cherries, plums, flowers and spices. It shows remarkable intensity and fabulous balance. Bone Rock is made from the first blocks planted in the James Berry vineyard and is predominantly Syrah, while the James Berry Vineyard (the wine) is Grenache focused. In 2009 the blend was 57% Syrah, 31% Mourvedre and 12% Grenache. The Syrah component was vinified with 100% stems and saw a maceration lasting 50 days. The wine was aged in 60% new oak. Smith bottled the 2009 in May 2011, earlier than the norm (around 30 months), as he wanted to preserve the freshness he had in the tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. (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 Carlisle "Martinelli Road" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Zinfandel Martinelli Road Vineyard (100% Zinfandel with 16.3% alcohol) is from a vineyard planted in the 1880s and situated near the Martinelli family's famed Jackass Vineyard. Earthy, peppery, spicy notes intermixed with hints of lavender, black cherries, plums, figs and forest floor emerge from this spicy cuvee. Displaying great intensity, massive richness and a huge, unctuously textured finish (16.3% alcohol), it, too, should be consumed over the next 7-8 years.

High-toned floral notes add lift and brightness throughout. Hints of sweet herbs and tobacco wrap around the finish. The Reuling is planted with the Calera clone and a suitcase clone from Vosne-Romanee, which in this vintage seems to give the wine an exotic, spiced dimension that is totally intriguing.

The restrained intense and strikingly well-detailed medium-bodied flavors possess an abundance of mouth coating extract that buffers the firm tannic spine on the impressively complex, long and exquisitely balanced finish." (10/2011) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby.
