2006&2007 Opus One Napa Valley Tasting Lot
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006&2007 Opus One Napa Valley Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2006 Opus One Napa Valley Proprietary Red (95JS, 93RP, 93ST, 90WE) and 1-bottle of 2007 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (96VN, 95RP, 94WS, 93JS, 93ST). Of the 2007 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend,Vinous writes: "There is so much to like about the 2007 Opus One. A wine that captures the essence of the year, the 2007 is exotic, flashy and striking. Kirsch, rose petals, pomegranates and spices form a fabric of compelling beauty. The 2007 is rich, sumptuous and generous, just as it should be. Threads of striking perfume are woven throughout, adding aromatic lift and pure sensuality. Readers who like more structured wines are likely to gravitate towards vintages such as 2010, but years like 2007 offer immense pleasure and an immediacy I find impossible to resist. A sumptuous, layered finish rounds things out in stunning style. (AG)" (06/2013)

2007 Merry Edwards Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc

96 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2009 & Highly Recommended* A rocket beam of vibrancy, with effusive honeysuckle notes and ripe honeydew melon, citrus, pear and apricot flavors that have amazing structure, depth and body. Ripe flavors end with a mouthwatering finish, where the mineral and spice details echo on and on." (5/2009) 94 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Lively, mildly figgy, green-apple fruit combines nicely with a bit of varietal grassiness and wispy suggestions of minerals in both the aromas and flavors of this vibrant young Sauvignon, and, if arguably a touch simple just now, it has the struc ...Read More »

2007 Trivium "Les Ivrettes Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A good, dry, fleshy wine. Not showing well now in its youth, because it’s tannic and unintegrated, with flavors flying all over the place. But there’s a solid core of blackberry and black cherry sour candy, a good sign. Give it at least 4–5 years in the cellar, and try again." (4/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This pretty, gracious, elegant, restrained, medium-bodied 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Les Ivrettes Vineyard from proprietors Doug White and Jack Stuart represents a measured approach to winemaking.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Rudd "Crossroads" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Crossroads performed much better this year than it did last year. A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, it is still unevolved with a primary character, but it does reveal attractive blueberry and cassis fruit interwoven with notions of incense, camphor, and licorice.

2007 Calera "Ryan" Mt. Harlan Pinot Noir

It is a spicy, earthy effort with an autumnal-like herbaceousness. Aged 17 months in French oak (30% new), it is a Pinot Noir for those who prefer that varietal’s spicy, stemmy, earthy side. Nevertheless, there is still plenty of fruit in this complex, singular cuvee." (08/10) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is one of the most forward and accessible of Calera's new releases.

But the blackberry, cassis and cedar flavors are intense and concentrated. Earns its high score by the wonderful combination of elegance and potency."

Layer after layer of flavor saturates the palate in this opulent, full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2007 possesses dazzling textural richness, depth and sheer intensity. Purists may prefer more structured vintages, but for a producer known for such slow maturing wines, the 2007 is a huge pleasure to taste today. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037. (AG)" (12/2011)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted too late to make it into the December issue, Merus’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an inky/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of blueberry liqueur intermixed with graphite, charcoal, cassis, and spice. The wood seems pushed to the background given the extraordinary concentration of fruit. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich with chocolaty espresso notes intermixed with blackberries and blueberries, this pure, impressively textured, long Cabernet should evolve for two decades.

2007 Hall "Jack's Masterpiece" St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon

Tastes rich and compellingly good, like being swept away on a tidal wave of blackberry essence and cocoa. Very good, very rich, very fine, but you want to stash it away for a few years to let the parts meld." (7/2010) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Jack’s Masterpiece exhibits copious amounts of sweet creme de cassis fruit intermixed with notions of chocolate-covered cherries, licorice, and flowers.

Complex and dense with silky tannins, and superb elegance combined with richness, it can be approached now, but it will be even better in 4-5 years. It should last for 20+ years."

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2007 Robert Craig "Affinity" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP, 92WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Affinity exhibits more graphite, but in essence is similarly elegant, with supple tannins (although more velvety than in the 2006), very young, primary black and blue fruit notes, and superb concentration, texture, and length. This is an exceptionally promising wine that is still hiding behind a rather primary display of fruit. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 15 or possibly 20 years. This is the best group of wines I have ever tasted from Robert Craig Winery. Not only is there not a single disappointment in this portfolio, but these are all noteworthy wines, with thrilling levels of quality. Moreover, they are moderately priced for Napa Valley as well as ageworthy. I think these are the finest wines that I have ever tasted from Robert Craig Cellars. (RP)" (12/2009)

Drink now through 2014.

Mountain freshness. Baking spice. The pencil lead of Graves in that less-than-overripe varietal character. This is unadulterated Cabernet pleasure, three words that have never come together in my mind before. Grown at an elevation of 1,800 feet, 14 miles from the coast, this vineyard traces its heritage back to Chateau Margaux, where Emmet Rixford selected cuttings for La Questa in the 1890s. Martin Ray propagated cuttings from these vines to plant Mount Eden in the 1940s, replanted in the 1980s with a selection from Ray's vines. Between the cool site, the exceptional vintage and the pedigree of the vines, this is a true California classic." (10/2011)

It reveals a liqueur of crushed rocks intermixed with a smorgasbord of spring flower, blueberry, creme de cassis, and assorted blue, black, and red fruit characteristics. It also possesses extraordinary concentration, but what sets it apart is the fragrant aromatics combined with uncommon purity and elegance for such a full-bodied, massively concentrated wine.

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 2008s appear to be slightly more fruit-forward, with a touch less minerality than the 2007s.

Like all of Justin Smith’s 2007s, it is a riveting, sensational wine that carries its heavy weight, profound richness, and intensity very gracefully.

2007 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With aeration, the firm, structured 2007 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard (a 10-acre site planted at a 1,400 foot elevation) offers up notions of sweet and sour cherries, earth, and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and pure, with good acidity and texture, this impressive Pinot will benefit from several years of aging. One-hundred percent whole clusters were used in its upbringing. (RP)" (2/2010) 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "**Outstanding** A ripe and distinctly floral nose that reveals light spice notes to the plum and dark berry fruit aromas that precede very rich, round and substantial ...Read More »

2007 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Syrah (Previously $300)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Bone Rock, which comes from the James Berry Vineyard (82% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre, and the rest Grenache, also aged 28 months in a combination of smaller barrels, demi-muids, and pungeons), is super as well. 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. The extraordinary freshness and elegance of this wine leads to a minerality that even ...Read More »

2007 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2007 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged 24 months in new French oak, this infant 2007 exhibits an inky/purple color along with notes of graphite, spring flowers and smoky oak. This full-bodied, classic Insignia reveals fabulous depth, ripeness, texture, viscosity and richness. Still young and unformed, it should evolve for 25 or more years. Perhaps I should just go ahead and give this 2007 a three-digit score as it is a profoundly great Cabernet Sauvignon-based effort. The production was 13,500 cases of this 100% estate fruit blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. ...Read More »

2007 Jonata "El Alma de Jonata" Santa Ynez Valley Cabernet Franc
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Jonata "El Alma de Jonata" Santa Ynez Valley Cabernet Franc (97RP, 93VN, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Moving to their Bordeaux blends, the El Alma de Jonata is the estate’s Cabernet Franc- dominated blend and normally incorporates 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and smaller components of Merlot and Petit Verdot. The 2007 El Alma de Jonata got a big “Wow” in my notes and is an incredible Cabernet Franc from California. Deep, rich and layered, with full-bodied richness, massive structure and ripe tannin, it offers up complex notes of chocolate, black currants, lead pencil shavings and toast as well as no hard edges and blockbuster length. It should continue to evolve gracefully, but there’s no harm in drinking it now either. Drink now-2022. (JD)" (08/2013)

2007 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Rhone Blend

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Saturated ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet displays boysenberry, blueberry, smoked meat, pungent floral oils and strong minerality. Lush, creamy and sweet, offering incisive dark berry flavors and a strong undertone of Asian spices. The mineral note builds with air and carries into the finish, which is strikingly pure, focused and persistent. As rich as this wine is, I find no excess weight and a very firm finish.

2007 Amuse Bouche Napa Valley Proprietary Red

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 2007 is inky/ruby/purple in color and is accompanied by sweet scents of melted chocolate, licorice, forest floor, and gobs of black cherry and cassis fruit, and a wine with a superb texture, an opulent, flamboyant mouthfeel, and a stunning finish. It should drink nicely for a decade or more." (12/2008) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red-ruby. High-pitched, slightly candied aromas of crushed red berries and plum lifted by a whiff of rose petal. A juicy, sweet, slightly high-toned fruit bomb, with good energy to its creamy, exotic red berry flavors. Boasts lovely clar ...Read More »

2007 Pax "Walker Vine Hill Vineyard" Russian River Valley Syrah

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Pax Cellars Syrah Walker Vine Hill (100% Syrah, 40% whole clusters) is a beauty. A big, dense Syrah, it exhibits abundant aromas of creme de cassis, acacia flowers, pepper, meat juice, and a smoky barbecue character. Substantial, succulent, and opulent, it displays a flamboyant, full-bodied style that is hard to resist.

2007 Cherry Pie "Stanly Ranch" Carneros Pinot Noir

Cherry Pie is another innovative offering from visionary winemaker Jayson Woodbridge, creator of Hundred Acre and Layer Cake Wines. The nose is redolent of dark Bing cherries, hints of black and white pepper on meat roasting in a wood oven, memories of English plum pudding steaming at Christmas, a touch of saddle leather, warm spice and tobacco at a distance. The nose continues to build and unfold with hints of violets and Portobello mushrooms, blackberries, minerals and sweet earth. It envelops the palette, almost to the point of overwhelming, then open... Read More »

Camphor, black raspberry, flower, and blackberry liqueur notes are found in this full-bodied, dense, chewy, classic Syrah. More similar to a northern Rhone Hermitage than its siblings, it should evolve for a decade or more. (RP)" (8/2009) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The blockbuster 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is more primary, but it does display enormous fruit concentration, massive body, and wonderful purity, balance, and elegance. It is an extraordinarily promising 2007 with awesome fruit, depth and richness as well as a long finish. This offering will be even better with 5-7 years of bottle age, and should keep for 20+ years.

A blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, a whopping 33% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a gorgeously sweet bouquet of blue and black fruits, spring flowers, and crushed rocks, full-bodied power allied to compelling elegance, and a layered, multidimensional personality.

Intriguing nose melds cranberry, orange zest, rust, smoke and underbrush. Sweet but juicy and lively, with a saline element contributing to a chewy texture. Sneaky acidity and firm tannins keep this a bit youthfully subdued. I'd wait a year before pulling the cork." (05/2009)
