2008 Martinelli "Hop Camp Vineyard - Gravel Lens" Russian River Valley Syrah (Previously $65)

92 points Rhone Report: "The 2008 Martinelli Syrah Hop Camp Vineyard 'Gravel Lens' (Grave lens refers to the rare soil characteristic of alluvial soil layers interleaved with layers of gravel) is a big, beautifully fruited Syrah that possess touches of northern Rhone like qualities mainly on the nose. Blackberry, cracked pepper, mineral, and hints of chocolate all emerge, and this fleshes out over the evening and gains floral and violets characteristics, as well as notable complexity and a layered profile.

2008 Iron Horse Green Valley of Russian River Valley Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine

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 Top Pick!
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 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "An awesome Cabernet, so elegant, powerful and refined. As softly attractive as it is, it has a reserve of power that should enable it to age effortlessly. Ripe, sweet tannins house exorbitant flavors of blackberries and cassis, accented with new oak. It makes for a full-bodied, showy 100% Cabernet, drinkable now and over the next 15 years."

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 400 cases of the 2008 Altagracia, which includes a lot of Petit Verdot (20%) in the Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend. The year’s spring frosts resulted in a smaller crop than usual resulting in a denser, richer but at the same time more texturally interesting and seductive style of wine. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by lots of blue, red and black fruits as well as good minerality, purity and depth. It should drink well for 10-15 years.

2008 Vineyard 29 "29 Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

It is so young that it cannot only get better with time in bottle, but we admit that its no-holds-barred richness and accessible style makes near-term resistance next to impossible."

2008 Duckhorn "The Discussion" Napa Valley Red Wine

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is by far the most expensive of Duckhorn’s new releases, but it’s not the best to drink now. Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s easy to imagine the winemaker singling out the most tannic and concentrated lots, but what you get is, simply, a very tannic wine. There’s a gigantic core of blackberry and black currant fruit, but it’s hard to appreciate because of the astringency. The suggestion is longterm aging, but there can be no guarantees. Cellar Selection." (10/2012) K&L Notes: Best of the Best: that's what the 2008 "Discussion" is all about. A Bordeaux-style bl... Read More »

A multi-clone blend (hence the name) with high, cool-climate acidity and aged in 100% new oak, it’s still young, fresh and tight.

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 Sine Qua Non "Jinete Bajo Vin de Paille" California Roussanne (375ml)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The days of the Mr. K wines are gone forever with the tragically premature death of Austrian Alois Kracher, who had partnered with Manfred Krankl in this intriguing homage to sweet nectars. Krankl continues on his own, and in Spring, 2011, he will release the 2008 Jinete Bajo Roussanne Vin de Paille, which is named after his wife's favorite horse. Made from 100% estate fruit, with a finished alcohol level of 11.8%, a whopping 240 grams per liter of residual sugar, and 8.7 grams of acidity, this is a pure nectar of honeyed marmalade, waxy, syrupy honeysuc ...Read More »

2008 Hundred Acre "Precious" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full deep red. Subdued but pure aromas and flavors of currant, dark cherry, licorice and graphite. Voluptuous and sweet, but not heavy; this saturates every square millimeter of the palate. Almost painful intensity to the wave of fruits and minerals. Boasts compelling sweetness but with real lift and energy. Finishes with plenty of dusty tannins and outstanding building length. Really exploded with 24 hours in the recorked bottle. (ST)" (6/2011) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Jayson Woodbridge describes Precious as a thread that runs through all the Hundred Acre wines, but bot ...Read More »

2008 Kistler "Vine Hill Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational effort, the layered, full-bodied 2008 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard exhibits hints of peaches, buttered nuts, white currants, pears and subtle smoke, a rich mouthfeel and a long finish. (RP)" (2/2011) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Greenish gold. Highly complex, mineral-driven aromas of fresh nectarine, citrus pith and iodine, along with a hint of smokiness. Supple, broad and impressively concentrated, with pit fruit and mineral flavors showing serious depth and firm acidity adding spine. Boasts an oily, mouthfilling texture but carries no excess weight and finishes wit ...Read More »

2008 Tensley "BMT" Santa Barbara County Syrah (1.5L)

97 points Robert Parker: "The 2008 Syrah B.M.T. (76% Syrah and 24% Grenache) is a blend of fruit from the Tierra Alta Vineyard (50%), the Turner Vineyard (25%), and Colson Canyon (25%). Given how light the 2008 Grenache Colson Canyon is, I assume most of the finest Grenache fruit went into this B.M.T. blend as it is a killer wine. An opaque purple color is followed by sweet black raspberry, kirsch, lavender, licorice, and chalky/mineral notes. Full-bodied, exuberant, and bigger than life with tremendous purity and a terrific texture as well as finish, th... Read More »

It's dramatic in blackberry, cherry, plum, cassis, chocolate, anise and baking spice flavors, wrapped into a wonderfully soft, gentle tannins.

2008 12C "Georges III Vineyard" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2008 is the second vintage from this small cult production. From winemaker Mike Smith: "2008's growing season allowed us to produce a wine with great ripeness coupled with intense flavors and smooth textures. Immediately noticeable are the intense dark ruby hues and soaring aromas of dark red fruits, minerality and subtle barrel spice. When swirled in the glass, there is a sense of great viscosity coming from this brooding wine as it releases even more complex layers of dark and red fruits such as sugar plums, blackberries and pure cassis.

2008 Dana Estates "Lotus Vineyard" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship offering is the Lotus Vineyard cuvee. The 2007 was pure perfection and the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard is another impressive effort (about 200 cases produced). Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Clones 337, 4 and 15, this is a relatively high elevation (1,200 feet) site and because of that, the wine shows lots of minerality and freshness. Expansive black currant and blackberry notes intermixed with graphite and flower aromas are followed by a full-bodied wine with lots of structure, density and purity. This 2008 requires 4-5 y ...Read More »
