2006 Tensley "Colson Canyon Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah

90 points Robert Parker: "The inky/ruby/purple-tinged 2006 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard offers up scents of wild herbs, black fruits, roasted meats, leather, and spice. While slightly more tannic and structured than its two predecessors, it reveals outstanding depth, purity, and balance. It will benefit from a year of bottle age, and should keep for 7-8." (06/08)

2006 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

95 points 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 d ...Read More »

2006 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Syrah

93 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, detailed and concentrated, this is tight, focused and full-bodied, with an enticing mix of mineral, wild cherry and black cherry fruit, picking up lots of spice, pepper and nutmeg scents that provide depth and length. Best from 2009 through 2016." (2/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Two limited production offerings include the 2006 Syrah, a 600-case red offering floral and blackberry scents, medium to full body, sweet tannin, and a long, lush mouthfeel. It will provide pleasure over the next 4-5 years. (RP)" (12/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ruby. Superripe aromas of roasted raspberry, blu ...Read More »

2006 Williams-Selyem "Litton Estate Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (Previously $80.00)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With thirteen separate Pinot Noirs, Williams-Selyem has something for just about everybody. Eight of these Pinot Noirs hail from relatively well-known sites in the Russian River and three come from the Sonoma Coast, while the two outliers are the Weir Vineyard from Yorkville Highlands and the Ferrington Vineyard from the Anderson Valley. Three well-regarded vineyards of the Sonoma Coast comprise part of this impressive Pinot Noir portfolio from Williams-Selyem.

2006 Maybach Family "Materium" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Wine Spectator: "An amazing wine, smooth, rich and layered, full-bodied and elegant. Delivers a complex mix of supple currant and blackberry, with touches of anise, cedar and mineral that unfold on the palate, offering extra dimensions of complexity and nuance at every turn. The finish is delightful." (10/2009) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Virtually all Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2006 Materium boasts complex notes of lead pencil shavings, creme de cassis, licorice, new saddle leather, and loamy soil undertones.

2006 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 7,000 cases of the prodigious 2006 Proprietary Red Wine (a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec). Most of the fruit comes from the Stagecoach Vineyard and the Waters Ranch. Sweet, smoky, meaty aromas interwoven with melted asphalt, camphor, blackberry, cassis, and charcoal scents emerge from the complex aromatics. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, displaying sweet tannin, a concentrated mouthfeel, and a long, heady finish with substantial fruit, glycerin, and extract. It should ...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 »

2006 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Merlot

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made in the Pride style, this is a big, powerful wine that should age well. It’s enormously ripe, with flamboyant cassis, cherry pie filling, milk chocolate, licorice and smoky oak flavors that are wrapped into thoroughly modern, softly refined tannins." (7/2009) 92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** Wispy suggestions of loam and briar are almost obscured by chocolate and cherries in the highly ripe aromas of this one, but, the wine judiciously takes a step back in the mouth from excess and eschews simple ripeness in favor of sweet oak and deep, fully extracted fruit.

Unfolds gracefully and deliberately, gaining depth and velocity on the finish. Drink now through 2024." (6/2012) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge possesses wonderful notes of boysenberries, blueberries, raspberries, damp forest and spring flowers. With full-bodied richness and complex aromatics, it seems more evolved and open-knit than the Three Sisters. This savory, full-throttle Pinot should drink ...Read More »

2006 Sine Qua Non "The Raven No. 1" 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 »

One of the stars of the vintage, this thrilling, opaque purple-colored wine offers up sweet espresso, jus de viande, blackberry, blueberry, flower and chocolate aromas.

Explosive aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, cassis, camphor, and flowers are followed by a dense, full-bodied, gorgeously layered fruit bomb with surprising complexity, minerality, and laser-like focus.

2006 Pax "Alder Springs, Emerald Pool" Mendocino County Syrah

Noted winemaker Pax Mahle sought to return to traditional methods for his Pax label (while his Wind Gap label is geared toward more esoteric varietals.) Working with distinctive organically farmed cool-climate sites, Mahle's focus is on small production, minimal-intervention winemaking, with native-yeast fermentations, and no fining or filtering. He seeks to let the terroir and the vintage speak through the wine. Alder Springs is a high-elevation, sandstone vineyard with a long, cool growing season.

2006 Larkmead "The Lark" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new cuvee, the 2006 The Lark (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) comes from the proprietor’s favorite block, which was once identified by the late Harold Olmo as his choice for Cabernet Sauvignon. It is only four barrels, or 100 cases, so I’ll keep my notes short. The wine displays beautiful sweetness and opulence in a style very much like the Solari, and at this stage it seems hard to differentiate from that wine.

2006 Opus One Napa Valley Proprietary Red

95 points James Suckling: "Sage and mint in the nose, it is Opus style. Full bodied and layered, with polished tannins and wonderful length. This is tight, but fascinating still. This wine has a good future, very juicy, and will only keep getting better." (2/2011) 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.

2006 Peter Michael "La Carrière" Sonoma County Chardonnay

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Green-tinged yellow. More precise, subtle aromas of stone fruits, minerals and nutmeg. A step up in energy and fruit intensity, with lovely clarity to the flavors of stone fruits, lemon, lime, spices and crushed rock. Finishes quite long and brisk, in need of at least a year of patience. (ST)" (6/2008) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my favorite cuvees is always La Carriere. The 2006 La Carriere (about 2,600 cases) displays wonderful honeyed grapefruit, crushed rock, and some spicy, yeasty notes along with nectarine and honeyed citrus.

2006 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

More buttery than most Marcassin Chardonnays, with good acidity, this deep, rich, full-bodied beauty is somewhat outclassed by some of the compelling efforts that have been produced at this magical vineyard.

Gentle tannins emerge with air and extend through the long, spicy finish.

2006 Aubert "Lauren Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

One has to admire Aubert’s ability to turn out something of this majesty in such a challenging year when so many Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards were filled with botrytis. Lemon blossom, orange marmalade, and white currant aromas jump from the glass of this light straw-colored cuvee with a greenish hue (a characteristic that also appears in the Aubert 2007s). Beautiful notes of tropical fruits and crushed rocks are present in this gorgeously rich, full-bodied, well-focused Chardonnay. All the ...Read More »

2006 Justin "Isosceles" Reserve Paso Robles Red Blend

Wine Enthusiast: "Very ripe, almost overripe, with an edge of raisins. But the structure of tannins and acids is fine, and the pruniness acts as a foil against the blackberries, cherries and cedar wood. Drink now." (10/2009) K&L Notes: Notes from the producer's website: "The highest expression of JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery is our ISOSCELES Reserve. Sourced entirely from our home estate vineyard planted in 1981 this wine reflects the pinnacle of our efforts.

Finishes with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2016." (4/2012) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "While it has closed down since I tasted it last year, it does reveal a dark plum/ruby color as well as a smoky bouquet of Asian plum sauce, soy, forest floor and sweet black cherries.

(ST)" (5/2008) K&L Notes: The 1944 Dogtown Vineyard, farmed by Turley Wine Cellars, is located in the Clements Hills-Lodi AVA, southeast of the deeper-soiled, flatter terrain of Lodi.

As I wrote last year, this is a fascinating portfolio of 100% Cabernet Sauvignons all of them from Beckstoffer-owned vineyards, including the To-Kalon Vineyard in Oakville, and one wine from the George III Vineyard in Rutherford...

It would probably be hard to find a Cabernet Sauvignon of this quality with this production level, all estate fruit, and such impeccable viticulture and winemaking.

2006 Alban Estate Edna Valley Roussanne

91 points Robert Parker: "The 2006 Roussanne Estate, which includes 25% Viognier in the blend, is a heavier, more waxy style of white wine that appears to possess some tannin. As this varietal often does, this full-bodied effort comes across as a “love it or leave it” wine. I happen to adore this style, but their aging curve is almost impossible to predict. I recommend drinking these Roussannes on the earlier rather than later side. This offering would drink beautifully with fatty fish or grilled chicken dishes as it almost has the weight, richness, and ... Read More »

2006 Peter Michael "L'Espirit des Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Complex scents of dried cherry, redcurrant, tobacco and musky herbs, with a suave mineral underpinning; smells like a Saint-Emilion from graves soil. Light in body but packing a serious punch, offering bitter cherry and red berry skin flavors along with sweet tobacco and dark chocolate qualities. The mineral note repeats on the finish, which is impressively focused and very persistent. (ST)" (6/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The second wine, from lots culled out from Les Pavots, is called L’Esprit des Pavots. The 2006 L’Esprit (45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 17% Ca ...Read More »

2006 Kistler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The unnamed 2006 Pinot Noir from a Sonoma Coast vineyard appears to be top-notch. It exhibits rich, medium to full-bodied flavors of forest floor, black cherry, raspberry, licorice, and earth. (RP)" (12/2007) K&L Notes: "It is easy to get excited about Kistler's Pinot Noirs," remarked Robert Parker in 1998. "All are aged in 100% new oak, made in small lots (250-500 cases), and bottled with neither fining nor filtration. They are trying to keep the levels of SO2 to minimal dosages so the wines can be as expressive as possible. These Pinot Noirs can easily hold their o... Read More »

2006 Hourglass "Blueline" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Wine Spectator: "This Cabernet captures the full-bodied richness, power, finesse and grace of the grape, delivering an up-front, exotic display of ripe currant, blackberry, wild berry, plum, olive, cedar and spice, with an espresso finish that sails on and on. Drink now through 2018." (3/2009) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Shows lots of smoky woodspice on the nose, and then turns decadently rich in the mouth, with waves of cassis, dark chocolate and cedar, exotically spiced with anise, cardamom, cinnamon stick and black pepper. Despite the volume, this Cab is polished and elegant." (6/2009) 92 points James Suckling: "A softer and ...Read More »

2006 Harlan Estate Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points James Suckling: "Intense aromas of black pepper, blueberry, blackberry, tar, and black licorice. Full bodied, with amazing length and a toned muscular character. This lasts for minutes. Like a world class ballerina. It is held back and beautiful. Please leave this alone until 2015!" (2/2011) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Harlan Estate has turned out better than I originally predicted. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by classic aromas of creme de cassis, melted licorice, smoked meats, burning embers, and graphite... great balance.

2006 Williams Selyem "Westside Road Neighbors" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* A perennial favorite in these pages, this Pinot hails from the very heart of what many, including ourselves, view as one of the top two or three Pinot patches outside of the very best in Burgundy. 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." (6/2008) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Vibrant raspberry and cherry preserve aromas, with suave incense, rose ...Read More »

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An unfined/unfiltered blend of 45% Syrah, 38% Grenache, and 17% Mourvedre, aged 32 months in a combination of wood vessels, the prodigious 2006 James Berry Vineyard Proprietary Red exhibits beautiful sweet creme de cassis, black raspberry, blackberry, truffle, smoke, and herb notes. This spicy, rich, full-bodied effort should drink beautifully for a decade. (RP)" (8/2009) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Deeper dark berries and ripe cherry on the nose, complicated by dark chocolate and licorice. The cherry and chocolate qualities build with air and carry onto the palate, ...Read More »
