2008 Palmina Santa Barbara County Nebbiolo

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light red. Red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by rose, white pepper and vanilla. Spicy and brisk on entry, then fleshier and deeper in the middle, offering intense red fruit flavors and a touch of spicecake. Shows a refreshingly light touch, with zero excess fat. Finishes peppery and brisk, with lingering floral notes and no obvious tannins. There's an elegant, pinot-like character to this wine that's quite intriguing." (12/2012)

2008 Peay Vineyards "Scallop Shelf" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Expansive bouquet of red and dark berry liqueur, Asian spices, dried violet and minerals. Lush, seductively sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors stain the palate, picking up peppery spice and smoky mineral qualities with aeration. The gripping finish strongly echoes the cherry note and clings tenaciously. Shows surprising vivacity and clarity for its power; this is really promising." (5/2010)

2008 Qupe "X Block—Bien Nacido Vineyard—The Good Nacido—30th Anniversary" Santa Maria Valley Syrah (Previously $90)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This bottling is the winery’s most expensive wine, and usually its best. Production of the ’08 was unusually low, resulting in amazing concentration. It’s basically a detonation of cherries, raspberries, currants, cola and mocha. New oak is present, in the form of delicate toast and wood spice, but is balanced. So silky and delicious now, you can drink it, but the tannic balance suggests the cellar. Will evolve over the next 12 years, maybe longer."

2008 Sean Thackrey "Orion" St. Helena Proprietary Red

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Marching to the beat of a drummer largely unknown to any other winemaker in California, Sean Thackerey continues to produce some extraordinary wines, in this case from a field blend planted in 1905. This is clearly a Rhone Ranger blend, with a dense ruby/purple color and loads of incense, camphor, blue and black fruits, earth, and spice. Full-bodied, rich, and bursting with personality, the wine is unique/singular, with an intensity that has to be tasted to be believed. Drink it over the next decade or more."

Silky and supple on the palate, with flavors of dark raspberry, plum, smoky underbrush and game showing a lovely glyceral quality on the back half.

Then intense, spicy and penetrating in the mouth, with vibrant raspberry and wild strawberry flavors dominating. Finishes pungent, spicy and long, with a palate-staining whiplash of flavor. This calls for another five years of aging."

Silky, alluringly sweet dark berry flavors pack a serious punch but come off as almost weightless, with tangy minerality adding spine and back-end cut. Gains weight and power with air and finishes with lingering smokiness and a hint of candied violet. This clocks in at a low 13.4% alcohol but hardly wants for power, depth or ripeness."

The wine comes alive in the glass, with crushed rose petals, dark raspberry jam, licorice and spices. There is an exotic element to the fruit that is highly appealing. Today the tannins are quite firm, suggesting the wine needs at least a few more years in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2038.

However it sounds, it’s really delicious." (8/2011)90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "As this deeply drawn wine demonstrates so well, Pride Merlots are as unruly as they are rich when still in their infancy, but even with all of its blustery ripeness, its puckery young tannins and its palpable trailing heat, its enduring message is one of convincing depth and fruity confidence.

This is an especially round, rich vintage for Second Flight. All the elements are in the right place, but overall, 2008 does not appear to be one of the estate’s very finest years.

2008 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 2008 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. A legend in Napa Valley Cabernet, Martha's Vineyard in the Oakville appellation is now certified organic by CCOF. The good news, according to the winery's note, is that the 2008 Martha's is another enchanting, beautifully balanced vintage. The not-as-good news is that only 500 cases of this sought-after, classic Napa Valley bottling were produced, one of the smallest releases ever, possibly resulting from the vexing frost events of 2008. Here's Heitz Cellar's tasting note: "This elegant Cabernet is a fruit forward wine with an engagingly soft and sweet center, and just a touch of graphite from the gravelly soils. Aromas of eucalyptus, sage, and green tea mingle with blackberry and cassis. The palate shows incredible finesse, and smooth tannins lead to a long, silky finish. In true Martha's fashion, this Cabernet is lovely to drink now and has the structure to age gracefully."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 continues the trend of rating all the older Sweeney Canyon Chardonnays higher than I did early in their lives. That’s an indication of great winemaking from a spectacular site. The age old argument of whether a Chardonnay improves in the bottle is answered positively by how the wines in this vertical have performed. The 2008 Chardonnay displays a French style with lots of white corn, white peach, honeysuckle, wet rock and spice characteristics. Tropical fruit notes appear on the palate, and there is enough acidity to support and delineate the wine’s superb richness. The alcohol came in at 15.3%, relatively modest by Brewer-Clifton standards. The 2008 should drink well for at least 8-10 more years. (RP)" (11/2013)

Of the 2009 Ovid Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "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 finish. 98+ points. (AG)" (12/

2008 Kosta Browne "Keefer Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Spectator: "One of two I correctly identified. This is notably spicy, with nutmeg, floral and berry scents. Rich and full-bodied, delivering layers of dark berries and a dash of mocha. (Web Only-2012)" (8/2010)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, strawberry liqueur, dried flowers and Asian spices. Silky, bright and precise, but with good depth and power to its red berry and cherry flavors. Really expand with air, finishing with sweet tannins, tangy minerality and impressive length.

2008 Alban "Reva" Edna Valley Syrah
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Alban "Reva" Edna Valley Syrah ((95-96JS), 96RP, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Reva (Syrah) is stunningly beautiful. This is a relatively delicate, feminine Reva that impresses for its length, balance and utter purity of fruit. Dark red cherries, flowers, mint and silky, saline notes wrap around the expressive fruit on the long, polished finish. A hint of truffles adds to the wine’s sensual, totally beguiling personality. In 2008, the Reva is drop-dead gorgeous. Readers should note that, in this vintage, there is no Lorraine or Seymour’s, so the 2008 is a 'super-Reva!' Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. 96+ points.

2008 Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Chardonnay

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright gold. Wild, complex nose combines orange zest, dried pear, smoky minerals, iodine and a whiff of lees. Deep, stony and precise, with fruit in the background and minerality to the fore. This is a real mouthful of rocks. Becomes spicier and more floral with air and finishes with superb precision and length." (6/2011)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A steely, tightly-knit offering that requires some introspection as well as more bottle age is the 2008 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard. Unbuttered popcorn, crisp pear, white peach and steely, wet rock-like characteristics suggest lots of ...Read More »

2008 Sine Qua Non "B 20" Syrah
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2008 Sine Qua Non "B 20" Syrah (95RP, 94JS, 94ST, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Syrah B-20 is a cool, inward wine graced with layers of beautifully delineated, chiseled fruit. This is a distinctly mineral, precise style relative to the more outgoing 2009, but both are striking. Floral notes add lift as the finish turns explosive with a burst of dark fruit, tar, licorice and crushed rocks. This is one of the more understated wines readers are likely to come across from Sine Qua Non. It is gorgeous when given the time to open up. The B-20 is predominantly Syrah, with 6% Grenache and 2% Viognier. About half of the Grenache was fermented with whole clusters and the wine was aged in French oak (60% new) for 26 months.

2008 Williams Selyem Central Coast Pinot Noir

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "If at first seeming a touch tentative and a bit leaner in style, this energetic young wine gradually unfolds and fixes its sights on very deep, very vital young fruit. If lifted by lots of bright acidity, it is never less than very well-balanced, and it ends with a lengthy finish whose emphasis is first and foremost on sweet cherries. It has all the pieces in place to age well and will need a few years before really hitting its stride." (6/2010)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Sexy aromas of strawberry, raspberry, minerals and rose, along with a high-pitched minty nuance. Tight ...Read More »
