2008 Iron Horse "Green Valley" Sonoma Brut Rose

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brut Rosé is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay aged at least four years on the yeast before being disgorged. With strawberries and framboise, this is a delicious, sexy and beautifully light-salmon/pinkish colored sparkling wine with good body, loads of fruit, and plenty of effervescence. In many ways is my favorite, and I am sure it is among the winery’s most popular. Drink it over the next several years.

2008 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

95 points Vinous: "Mocha, espresso, rosemary, lavender, plums and licorice emerge from the 2008 Opus One. Tasted from magnum, the 2008 is beautifully expressive. The firm tannins need more time to soften, but there is a lot to like in the 2008. Today the 2008 is showing beautifully. In magnum, the 2008 can be enjoyed today or cellared up to another 20 years or so. If opened young, the 2008 needs a few hours of air to soften. The bright, floral, spiced finish suggests a long life ahead. (AG)" (11/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "Fabulous roses, currants and dark berries on the nose that go to currants ...Read More »

2008 Vineyard 29 "29 Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (375ml)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard 29 Estate (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has to take a backseat to the virtually perfect 2007, but it is another strong effort. Although slightly more austere than the exuberant 2007, it is loaded with fruit. An opaque ruby/purple hue is accompanied by notes of cassis, new saddle leather, camphor and loamy soil. The wine displays sweet tannin, medium to full-bodied flavors, outstanding richness and mild tannins in the finish. It requires 2-3 years of bottle age and should keep for 20-25 years. 93+ points (RP)" (12/2010) K&L Notes: From... Read More »

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Kolibri continues the brilliant success Krankl has had with dry whites. As one can see when visiting his cellars, he is now using the fashionable concrete eggs as part of the white wines' upbringing. About 25% new French oak is used, and the balance is older barrels. Most of the fruit is from estate vineyards, with about 18% purchased from the Bien Nacido Vineyard. The final blend is 69% Roussanne and 31% Viognier. As is found in all Krankl's whites, the 2008 Kolibri possesses extraordinary aromatics. Abundant notes of marmalade, honeysuckle, wh ...Read More »

2008 Colgin "IX Estate" Napa Valley Syrah

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright full ruby. Pungent aromas of candied blueberry, minerals, lavender, crushed stone, roasted meat, mocha and black olive; youthful but already expressive. Pliant, rich and deep, with terrific verve and incipient complexity to the intense flavors of black cherry, salty minerality, game and white pepper. Really exhilarating high-toned floral/wild herb character and inner-mouth tension. Still an infant, and extremely long on the aftertaste. This reminded me of a top Syrah bottling from Cayuse. 95+ (ST)" (3/2013) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Interesting French-like Syrahs are also ma ...Read More »

2008 DuMol Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Deeper and darker in character than the Aidan, displaying black raspberry and cherry qualities and notes of licorice and black tea. Then brighter in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a touch of bitter cherry pit. Impressively focused Pinot with strong finishing cut and persistent spiciness." (5/2011) Wine Spectator: "Rough-hewn, but rich and intense, offering complex, concentrated raspberry, blackberry and cherry fruit that is pure and spicy. A touch of anise and red licorice mark the finish. (JL)" (11/2010)

2008 Rhys "Swan Terrace - Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is also gorgeously layered and brilliantly complex with a stunning nose of rose petal, violet, red and blue Pinot fruit and perhaps the most overt mineral-influence of any wine in the group and this aspect can also be found on the beautifully textured, refined and pure flavors that are an exercise in balance and harmony. In sum, a wine of class and grace that in 10 years may ultimately prove to be as good as the Horseshoe...The estate wines of Rhys Vineyards are made from biodynamically farmed fruit and owner Kevin Harvey and winemaker Jeff Brinkman ...Read More »

2008 Morlet "Coteaux Nobles" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full red. Very ripe, expressive aromas of strawberry liqueur, griotte cherry and raspberry jam. Then sappy, juicy and intense in the mouth, with pungent dark berry flavors complicated by spices, smoke and intriguing soil tones. For all its sweetness of fruit this Pinot is classically dry in an Old World way. Winemaker Morlet used only 25% new oak for his Pinots in 2008."

2008 Paul Lato "Cinematique - Larner Vineyard" Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Slightly more exotic and aromatically complex is the 2008 Syrah Cinematique Larner Vineyard (95% Syrah co-fermented with 5% Viognier). Gorgeous aromas of spring flowers, black olives, blackberries, black currants, and raspberries jump from the glass of this full-bodied, intense, complex, elegant Syrah. Superb purity, a seamless mouthfeel, and a tremendously long finish with no hard edges suggest it can be enjoyed now and over the next decade.

2008 Rhys "Skyline Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A more elegant and refined nose places perhaps even more emphasis on the floral component found in all of the Rhys wines that gives way to highly complex and equally refined middle weight flavors that are quite classy and while there is no lack of power or structure, the tannins are finer, all wrapped in a stunningly long and mineral-infused finish. A very stylish effort that should reward medium to long-term cellaring...The estate wines of Rhys Vineyards are made from biodynamically farmed fruit and owner Kevin Harvey and winemaker Jeff Brinkman continu ...Read More »

2008 Rudius Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Spectator: "Serves up a generous mix of fleshy blueberry, plum and black cherry fruit that's deceptively complex and subtle. Full-bodied and impressive for its early-drinking allure. Fine-grained tannins provide nice traction. (JL)" (11/2011) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red-ruby. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, plum, licorice, spicecake and dark chocolate, plus hints of cola and loam. Supple and concentrated, with slightly high-toned flavors of plum, currant, cedar and brown spices. Doesn't yet deliver the complexity promised by the nose but there's no shortage of flavor intensity here. D ...Read More »

2008 Meteor Vineyard "Perseid" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $80)

Finessed, supple tannins frame layers of dark red fruit, spices, tobacco, flowers, leather and licorice that emerge in this impeccably polished, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2008 Perseid should continue to drink well over the next decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. (AG)" (12/2011) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good red-ruby.
