2006 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Wine & Spirits: "There's something in this wine that's rivetingly true to its place, a classical simplicity, as if smelling cherry blossoms in a coastal forest, or picking raspberries along Westside Road. It has the gentleness of great Russian River pinot, and a bright, happy flavor that lasts for minutes. From five neighboring vineyards, including Rochioli and Flax, with 90 percent of the fruit coming from Williams Selyem estate plantings at Drake and Litton. Winemaker Bob Cabral believes it's his best Russian River Pinot Noir in years." (10/2008) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Captivating, p ...Read More »

2006 Cain "Five" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend

Jancis Robinson: "Dark purplish crimson. Appealing juicy fruit with a little overlay of walnuts on the nose. Some personality and a fruity core. Quite dusty and full blooded with slightly rustic tannins. Distinctive! I like the fact that the winemaker has not been afraid of tannin. Quite burly rather than super smooth. Out of the mould – so therefore mountain fruit..? I just wonder whether the fruit won’t fade a little bit too early for the tannins? Dry finish. But this is serious artisanal wine. (JR)" (3/2010) K&L Notes: The 2006 Cain Five is a warm, plump, plush wine. It has a nice ... Read More »

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Kistler "Cuvée Elizabeth - Bodega Headlands" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir ((96-98RP), 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Pinot Noir Bodega Headlands Cuvee Elizabeth is undeniably a grand cru effort. Black raspberry, spring flower (violets), and kirsch aromas soar from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-tinged wine. Medium to full-bodied with zesty acidity, beautiful penetration, and a soaring mid-palate as well as length result in a prodigious example of Pinot Noir that should drink well for a decade or more.

2006 Williams Selyem "Hirsch Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich in fine, pure tannins, this Pinot is delicious now, but has the structure to age. It shows ripe wild black cherry, currant, mocha, anise and spice flavors that finish with a smoky, oaky sweetness." (3/2009) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Dark red. Powerful kirsch and blackcurrant aromas are deepened by dark chocolate and mocha. Deep and chewy, with concentrated cherry and dark berry flavors, picking up baking spices on the back end. A rich, fleshy style of Pinot, with serious finishing power and length. 92+ (ST)" (6/2008) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Marked by the same keen fruity focus shared by virt ...Read More »

It starts with exceptionally concentrated fruit redolent of sweet red cherries kissed with notes of vanilla, honey, toast and clove-like spices and continues with a delight-fully supple entry texture and a firming backbone of evident but not intrusive tannins."

2006 Williams Selyem Sonoma County Pinot Noir

That simple balance of fruit and earth lasts, smooth and ready for roast duck." (12/2008) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Fresh red berry, orange peel and baking spice aromas offer very good clarity, taking on a floral quality with air.

2006 L'Aventure "Côte à Côte Estate" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In the same mold, with a classic, almost Old World savory character (certainly with a Paso Robles slant) ... Showing the ample creme de cassis, chocolate, seared meat and licorice-driven profile that’s common in this cuvee, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, yet stays lively and fresh, with no sense of weight or alcohol. Drinking beautifully now, it has silky, savory tannin on the finish, and will continue to dish out loads of pleasure through 2026.

(6/2008) Connoisseurs Guide: "Here is a chance to get all of the Williams Selyem brilliant way with Pinot Noir for a quite reasonable price.

Connoisseurs Guide: " *Three Stars* Already amazingly seductive with wonderfully rich aromas of sweet oak, cocoa and fully expressed fruit making a first-rate introduction, this riveting young wine in no way lets up on the palate and delivers deep, multi-faceted flavors that combine ripeness, sweet oak and very precise fruit in near-perfect proportion. As is often the case with Insignia bottlings, it is so beautifully balanced that it invites early drinking, and, while we do not condemn giving in to its charms, we also would lobby strongly for patience as its best years lie down the line."

2006 Chateau St. Jean "Cinq Cepages" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Showing the usual balance and harmony of this bottling, which is made from the five Bordeaux varieties, the ’06 nonetheless lacks a bit of the richness of other vintages. It’s beautifully clean and dry, with sound currant, blackberry, herb tea and cedar flavors, but is missing a certain fatness in the middle." (6/2010) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages (in this vintage, truly a Cabernet Sauvignon rather than a proprietary red as it is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot) possesses soft, sed ...Read More »

2006 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

93 points James Suckling: "I for one prefer the 2006 Opus to the 2007. I really appreciate the silky, refined, and aromatic quality of this wine. It’s full yet balanced with blueberry, currants, and spices on the finish. Racy is a word that comes to mind." (3/2012) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 comes across as a bigger, more structured wine than the 2007. The tannins are bolder, more dramatic, and more present. The wine displays impressive depth, not the velvety elegance of the 2007, but is a more muscular wine that begs for 2-3 years of cellaring and should drink well for 20-25 years. 93+ points.

2006 Etude Carneros Pinot Noir

90 points and one star from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "Generous, outgoing scents of concentrated cherries make a fine start here, and only a hint of dried fruit holds it back from taking all the honors. Still, this is a deep, rich wine on the palate, and it has both a certain fleshy fullness and enough fruit to pull it off without being heavy or overdone. It is the kind of wine that will reward handsomely when partnered with tasty meats like lamb or beef rib roasts." (Oct. 2008) From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium r...

This superbly complex, full-bodied wine possesses high tannins as well as surprisingly fine acidity despite an elevated technical pH of 3.93. Drink this intriguing, complex Syrah over the next 10-12 years. (RP)" (12/2008)

2006 Sine Qua Non "Raven Series" California Grenache

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, largely from the 11 Confessions Vineyard, with a small amount from Bien Nacido, spent 21 months in barrel. It is really strutting its stuff now, and showing even better than my original note predicted in August of 2009. The wine has loads of meat, licorice, smoke, charcoal and graphite, as well as huge peppery, blackberry and black cherry notes. Full-bodied, with great acidity, nicely integrated tannin, an admirable mouthfeel and tremendous length, this killer Grenache is still young and probably 3-5 years away f ...Read More »

2006 Etude "Heirloom" Carneros Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Big, powerful, soft, rich and ageable. In other words, classic Etude Heirloom. Resembles the rich 2002, with massive flavors of cherries, raspberries, cocoa, anise, bacon and smoky sandalwood. Enormously complex, a wine that changes with every sip as it breathes and warms. Shows the density of Cabernet, with Pinot’s silkiness." (12/2009) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A very ripe nose features notes of spiced plum, violets and black raspberry that are in keeping with the extremely rich, plump and rounded medium-full flavors that possess plenty of extract on the sappy and reasonably long ...Read More »

2006 DuMol "Aidan" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Pinot Noir Aidan shows sweet tannin, with notes of crushed rock, black cherry, raspberry, smoked meats, and forest floor. It has a nice sweetness, medium to full body, and soft, silky tannins. It is much more forward than the 2005 and should drink well for 5-6 years." (12/2007) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright red. Spicy aromas of redcurrant and cherry are underscored by smoky minerals. Broad but focused, offering sweet red fruit flavors, supple texture and fully absorbed tannins. A floral note arrives with air and carries through the very long, gently sweet finish. ...Read More »

2006 Carlisle "Papa's Block" Russian River Valley Syrah New!
2006 Carlisle "Papa's Block" Russian River Valley Syrah

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolutely amazing Syrah is the 2006 Syrah Papa’s Block in Russian River. From a vineyard called Atoosa, this full-bodied wine is limited in production, but boasts fabulous notes of graphite, blackberry, spring flowers, and creme de cassis with some scorched earth and spice in the background. Incredibly rich in fruit, dense and full, this is a stunner. It should drink well for at least a decade. (RP)" (12/2007) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright-rimmed purple. Very fresh bouquet of spicy dark berries, violet, smoky minerals and bacon fat. Brilliantly focused and pure, with ...Read More »

2006 Carlisle Russian River Valley Syrah New!
2006 Carlisle Russian River Valley Syrah

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Syrah Russian River, which is 100% Syrah with 25% whole clusters used, displays impressive fruit, and plenty of roasted meat and herbal notes that are dominated by the blackberry and cassis fruit of this wine. Some creosote and tar also make an appearance in this full-throttle, juicy Syrah. (RP)" (12/2007) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Creamy, seductive, vanilla bean-tinged oak leads to a core of supple currant, plum and blackberry fruit that's elegant, stylish and refined. (JL)" (8/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, inky purple. Ripe, rich kirsch and blackcurrant aromas are complemented by dark choco ...Read More »

2006 Vineyard 29 "Aida" Napa Valley Zinfandel

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Zinfandel Aida Vineyard is a deep ruby/purple-tinged blend of 86% Zinfandel and 14% Petite Sirah, it boasts complex notes of scorched earth, lavender, black cherries, spice box, pepper, and earth. Full-bodied with loads of glycerin as well as heady alcohol, it is an exuberant, astonishing Zinfandel to drink over the next 7-8 years." (12/2008) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A beautiful Zin, lush and classically proportioned, despite some fairly hefty alcohol. With ultra-refined tannins, fine acidity and lots of new oak to provide a smoky structure, it’s rich and complex in curra ...Read More »

2006 DuMol "Ryan" Green Valley Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Deep, powerful scents of cherry-cola, sassafras and dried rose. Sappy, deep dark berry flavors are complicated by smoky mineral and floral qualities. There's surprising energy, though, and the finish leaves tangy mineral and berry skin notes behind." (6/2009) 89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The only two that had been released include the 2006 Pinot Noir Ryan, which is a dark ruby, full-bodied wine with notes of clove, allspice, red currants, and hints of plum and sassafras."

2006 Ambullneo "Solomon Hills" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

From the Prince of Pinot: "This wine was bottled as a separate vineyard designate because of the stellar fruit in this vintage. There is more clone 667 and 777 in this wine. · Dark in color, this wine leads off with a nose of dark Pinot fruits with a hint of oak. On the attack it is rich and earthy, with plentiful black cherries, plums, and herbs. There is considerable potential here but time is need for integration." (03/2008)

2006 Rivers-Marie "Summa Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir New!
2006 Rivers-Marie "Summa Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pungent aromas of wild berries, herbs, underbrush and smoke lifted by an enticing lavender perfume. Less fruity but more minerally and bright than the basic bottling, offering a rather silky texture and some attractive high-toned notes of perfumed red fruits. I like this pinot's restrained sweetness and its classically dry finish. Owner/winemaker Thomas Brown told me that the tiny quantities of fruit he had to work with in 2005 were difficult to manage, and that the 2006s were easier to make. Still, yields in the latter year were in the modest 1 to 2.5 t ...Read More »

2006 Pharaoh Moans "Westside" Paso Robles Syrah

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Explosively perfumed nose offers a sexy bouquet of smoky dark berries, cherry preserves, fruitcake, olive and incense. Fleshy and youthfully bitter, offering deep cassis and dark cherry flavors that are framed by lightly chewy tannins and gain sweetness with air. The spicy notes echo on the sappy, very long finish. This is already delicious but has the concentration to reward patience." (12/2008)
