2007 Roederer Estate "L'Ermitage" Anderson Valley Brut Sparkling Wine

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*#36 in Wine Enthusiast's "The Enthusiast 100 of 2015"* Very fruity and fresh in aroma, this elegant wine has light, crisp apple and lemon flavors, fresh-baked bread accents and lively acidity. A layered texture seems to blend in accents of almond and vanilla, increasing complexity with each sip. It’s one of California’s bluechip bubblies."

2007 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I had always believed the 2007 Pinot Noir was the finest Helen Turley and John Wetlaufer had produced at their Estate Vineyard, but after doing this vertical and seeing the performances of the 1998, 2002 and 2004, that belief rings somewhat hollow. The still young, incredible 2007 has all the potential needed to achieve a three-digit rating in a few years. A dense plum/purple color is followed by notes of subtle smoke, barbecue spice, blueberries, red and black currants, flowers, and a smoky meat-like character that I first compared to the aroma of Pekin ...Read More »

2007 Snowden "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dazzling 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc) requires 2-5 more years of bottle age, but should evolve for three decades. Its dense purple color is accompanied by a thrilling bouquet of espresso roast, smoked herbs, licorice, creme de cassis, blackberries, and ink. The wine hits the palate with a blast of fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and tremendous purity, definition, and length. The sensational purity and exquisite balance between all its elements are impressive as well as noteworthy. (97+, RP)" (12/2009) ...Read More »

2007 Schramsberg "J Schram" North Coast Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine

96 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Seamlessly combining the cherry-like fruit and vinosity of Pinot Noir with an absolute wealth of autolyzed yeast and very clear in its grasp of what a serious Rosé should be, the latest J. Schram version is a fascinating wine of extraordinary layering, depth and polish. It is explosively bubbled and its very fine mousse lasts and lasts, and, while showing a bit of finishing grip that indelibly marks it is as a true Rosé, its altogether remarkable sense of refinement puts it in a class all its own."

2007 Schramsberg "J. Schram" North Coast Sparkling Wine

96 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This extraordinarily deep, explicitly champenized offering is a study in contrasts when it is compared to Schramberg's 2007 Reserve, for, while both are nearing their tenth anniversaries, this one shows its autolysis in a more refined light and wears its age with more elegance. It is rife with crème brûlée richness but has retained a subtle, but very sure sense of slightly juicy fruit that has not faded with time. It is a complete and compelling package that reveals more and more with each sip, and it ranks among the very best sparkling wines to be made ...Read More »

2007 Cain "Concept-The Benchlands" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

You won't find any reviews for Cain's current releases, since the winery stopped sending their offerings out to the critics in the early 2000s. It's probably for the best, since their wines don't fit into the big, powerhouse box that many critics have built for top-scoring wines. Cain's wines, rather, are finessed and balanced, with a chalky thread running through their entire lineup. Even in the incredibly ripe 2007 vintage, this blend of Cabernet (57%), Merlot (15%), Cab Franc (13%), and Petit Verdot (12%) is quite balanced, if a little more generous t... Read More »

Drink it over the next decade." (12/2008) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Intensely perfumed bouquet of red and dark berries, potpourri, mocha and sandalwood. Sappy, palate-coating red and dark berry flavors possess serious depth but don't come off as heavy. On the contrary, this is lively and precise, with very good finishing clarity and gently sweet mineral-driven persistence." (6/2010) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here there is be ...Read More »

As with many prodigious wines, the extraordinary freshness, purity, equilibrium, and singularity of this effort is breathtaking. Its dense purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary, incredibly pure, all enveloping, intense, sweet nose of black raspberries, kirsch, spring flowers, spice box, and pepper.

Like its late-released sibling, it has an inky/purple color to the rim and an extraordinary, soaring set of aromatics consisting of spring flowers, pepper, graphite, blackberry and blueberry fruit with hints of raspberry and licorice and jus de viande as well.

Its full and supple yet somewhat fleshy palatefeel is may invite early drinking, but its underlying structure insures that it will improve for years to come."

2007 Pax "Griffin's Lair" Sonoma Coast Syrah

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Pax Cellars Syrah Griffin’s Lair is a smoky, meaty offering that makes one think they are standing in the middle of a Texas barbecue pit. Copious notes of spice, pepper, meat juices, bouquet garni, and smoke drift past the olfactory senses and over the palate. Full-bodied, edgy, and grippy with high tannins as well as enormous richness and potential, it demands 2-3 years of cellaring, and should drink well over the following 12-15 years. (RP)" (2/2010)

Following the brilliant success of Kistler’s 2007s, Steve Kistler and his sidekick, Mark Bixler, deserve kudos for what they have achieved in the more challenging 2008 vintage. This is the first vintage in which 100% of the fermentations were indigenous, and, fortunately, all their Sonoma Coast vineyards were far enough south that they were not tainted by any of the smoke from the ferocious fires that spread through Mendocino.

The vines are the closest to the river in the famed Rochioli vineyard, and the resulting wine always has an elegant structure and fruity accessibility that make it drinkable at a younger age.

Their Merlot is a voluptuous and inviting wine that comes from two blocks in Hyde Vineyard. It's sumptuous, decadent stuff.

Smoky dark fruit flavors are framed by supple tannins and enlivened by tangy minerals and a note of candied violet. The tannins gain strength on the finish, lending a youthful ...Read More »

2007 Pax "Cuvee Christine" North Coast Syrah

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The other 2007s I tasted include the 2007 Syrah Cuvee Christine, a 100% Syrah with 35% whole clusters. It exhibits plenty of meaty, berry fruit intertwined with underbrush, pepper, and tapenade characteristics offered in a distinctive, Crozes-Hermitage/northern Rhone style. (RP)" (12/2008) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Firm and structured, with full-bodied flavors built around dried berry, mineral, spice and cedar, gaining depth and traction on the finish, where the minerality is complex. (JL)" (3/2010)

2007 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A staggering Chardonnay that’s still an infant, the light yellow/green/gold 2007 offers up notes of unbuttered popcorn, orange liqueur, lemon butter, quince and crushed rocks. It possesses terrific underlying acidity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a youthfulness and freshness that suggest this wine has two decades of life ahead of it. This majestic Chardonnay seems more French than Californian, but again, this reflects the significance of the labor of these two overachieving, push-the-envelope visionaries. What California viticulture and high-class, minima ...Read More »

2007 Spottswoode "Family Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Retasting the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon was a treat as I believe it is the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon Spottswoode has ever produced. Wonderful aromas of black raspberries, blueberries, black currants and flowers jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged Cabernet. As I have stated before, if Chateau Margaux were in Napa Valley, it would be Spottswoode. The purity, balance and delicacy of this wine are impressive. Perhaps slightly less dense and powerful than the 2008, the 2007 is flawlessly put together with nothing out of place. It, too, should ...Read More »

2007 Kistler "Cuvée Catherine-Occidental Station" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The compelling 2007 Pinot Noir Cuvee Catherine from the Occidental Station Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast is made entirely from the Calera clone. Deep ruby/purple with crushed raspberries, violets, Chinese black tea, and chalky, almost wet stone-like notes, the wine is rich, full-bodied, multi-dimensional, with superb depth and length, and a remarkable finish. (RP)" (12/2008) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vibrant ruby. Aromatic, high-pitched nose combines black raspberry, cherry, violet pastille and smoky minerals. Juicy, spicy and sweet, with a supple texture and excellent complexity to ...Read More »

2007 Marcassin "Three Sisters Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Chardonnay Three Sisters Vineyard (a terrific site owned by the Martinelli family) reveals a straw color with a greenish hue (always a positive sign) and a wonderful citrus oil, lemon blossom and crushed rock-scented perfume with a subtle hint of oak as well as a distinctive minerality. Full-bodied with good acidity and superb purity, it should drink well for 10-15 years. 96+ points. (RP)" (2/2011) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Wonderful detail, richness and depth mark this Chardonnay, in which subtle scents of wildflower are pure and focused on ripe pear, citrus, tangerine an ...Read More »

2007 Harlan Estate Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend Back In Stock!
2007 Harlan Estate Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 2007 Harlan Estate reminds me of a hypothetical blend of the 2002 with a touch of the controversial 1997. Dense plum/purple-colored with sweet aromas of barbecue smoke, blueberries, blackberries, cassis, licorice, hot rocks and subtle oak, it is a splendidly opulent, pure wine with a skyscraper-like texture as well as stunningly deep fruit that expands gracefully across the palate. The finish lasts nearly a full minute. Because of its overwhelming richness and sweet tannins, this brilliant wine seems to be approachable now, but I suspect f ...Read More »

2007 Aubert "Lauren Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most flamboyant wine at present is the 2007 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard. It reveals more tropical fruit, pineapple, orange marmalade, lemon blossom, creme brulee, and white peach notes as well as superb acidity, and a full-bodied texture as well as mouthfeel. It, too, will age well for a decade." (2/2010) 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Knockout nose combines underripe pineapple, lemon drop, apple, pear, crushed stone, spices and minerals, plus a whiff of goat cheese that reminded me of a Burgundy from pure calcaire Supersweet and rich but with lovely harmonious acidity ...Read More »
