2006 Freeman Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A beautiful Pinot that perfectly captures the cool coastal California interpretation of the variety’s essence. The texture is light and airy, like drinking a cloud. But the flavors are powerful and complex, stunning the palate with the most intense flavors of cherries, raspberries, root beer, vanilla, cloves, cinnamon and smoky oak. Hard to imagine anyone not falling in love with this lilting Pinot Noir." (10/2008) 92 points Wine Spectator: "The most complex and complete of the 2006 Freemans, this is fragrant, with wilted rose petal, blackberry and wild berry and hints of loamy eart ...Read More »

Fleshy and sweet, offering raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors and a deep note of blackberry skin. The finish is smooth, expansive and sweet, with the spice and vanilla notes repeating. The fruit here is more than up to the sweet oak. (JR)" (11/2009)

2006 Lewelling "Wight Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2006 Lewelling "Wight Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (94RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Slightly deeper, fuller, and more structured, with noticeably higher tannin is the opaque purple-hued 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Wight Vineyard. Sharing many of the same characteristics as its less expensive sibling, it also reveals notes of creme de cassis, smoky charcoal, graphite, and earth as well as a bigger framework and structured tannins, both nicely supported by an extravagant wealth of fruit and richness.

This thick, opaque-purple colored wine offers up notes of scorched earth, ground pepper, and blackberry liqueur intermixed with cassis, licorice, camphor, and tar. The wine is spectacular in every sense. Full-bodied and certainly not for wimps, this is a remarkably concentrated yet very nuanced and intense wine that should age for 20 more years.

2006 Turley "Old Vines" California Zinfandel

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Zinfandel Old Vines, which is a blend of old-vine parcels that are too small to be sold as single-vineyards, has a deeper ruby color, with hints of roasted herbs, pepper, nori (seaweed wrapper) intermixed with black cherry, raspberry, plum, and some spice. It is a fleshy wine with loads of fruit, medium to full body, and a supple texture. (RP)" (12/2007) Wine Spectator: "Young and untamed, but gutsy.

A big heat wave in July was the salient weather factor in this vintage. The harvest began early and continued for five weeks.

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.

2006 Copain "Thompson Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah

93 points Robert Parker: "One of my favorite California wine producers, Wells Guthrie, like a champion truffle-hunting dog, seems to unearth top vineyards for his wines. The other 2006 Pinots I tasted, as well as the 2007s, all seem austere, rather attenuated in the finish, and essentially angular. While obviously less charming and fleshy in their youth, I doubt they will age any better since there is not a whole lot of flesh on them. Part of this can be explained by the vintage of 2006, but that wouldn’t explain the same stylistic orientation of the 200... Read More »

Zesty redcurrant and wild berry flavors are sharply focused and lithe, picking up sexy vanillin oak spice on the back end. Finishes juicy, brisk and minerally.

There is an element of wildness that runs through the wine. Graphite, licorice, tar and smoke are just some of the nuances that add complexity. The 2006 boasts superb purity from start to finish. Elements of fleshiness give the impression the 2006 might drink well relatively early, until the massive tannins set in. Floral notes add freshness on the finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 4,400-case cuvee of 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (96% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc) is brilliant. 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. This wine reminded me of a great vintage of Pontet Canet in Pauillac, Bordeaux. The deep creme de cassis flavors intermixed with charcoal and lead pencil shavings soar from the glass. Its full body, stunning ripeness, sweet tannin, and substantial flavor authority make for a brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next two decades. (RP)" (12/2008)

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* If a little stiff and reluctant on first taste, this nervy, tightly wound youngster slowly unfolds and reveals suggestions of well-ripened cherries, raspberries and no small measure of sweet oak. It is a long way from being pretty and polished at the moment, and its evident tannin signals a marked need for patience, but given the winery's track record of making ageworthy wines, it is one to lay away in complete confidence."

The final blend harkens back to the first two vintages of Spottswoode, in being almost 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5% Cabernet Franc with the rest Cabernet Sauvignon). This wine is flowery with terrific fruit intensity and classic Spottswoode elegance and purity. Deep ruby/purple color, youthfulness still to this day and plenty of breadth, depth and richness.

Another Paso Robles vineyard, very close to the limestone vineyards of Saxum, this wine tops the scales at 16.1% alcohol.

2006 Etude "Deer Camp" Estate Carneros Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2006 Etude "Deer Camp" Estate Carneros Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer: "Good bright, full red. Good energy to the rather Burgundian aromas of spices, underbrush and game. The most precise and lively of these 2006 pinots in the mouth, displaying delicate, tangy wild strawberry and cherry flavors complicated by spices and flowers. Supple in the middle palate but nicely firm on the back end." (May/June '09) 90 points Burghound: "A very subtle touch of wood frames elegant, pure and airy aromas that blend together mostly red berry fruit notes that combine with a hint of vegetal that adds complexity bef...

2006 Kosta Browne "Rosella's Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

91 points Wine Spectator: "Shares the Garys' profile of understated flavors built around forest floor, mushroom, dried berry, sage and anise flavors. (JL, Web Only-2012)" Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Strong, floral bouquet suggests cherry, plum, rose and violet. Supple dark berry flavors offer good depth and chewy texture, picking up baking spices and cracked pepper with air. A smooth, round and supple Pinot, with ripe fruit and good chewy persistence. (ST)" (6/2008) K&L Notes: Rosella's Vineyard is just north of Garys' Vineyard in the center of the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation. The vineyard has a perfect sou... Read More »

2006 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An herb-infused blue and red berry fruit nose that is less obviously ripe than that of the Hillside Cuvée leads to delicious and seriously complex medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a firmly structured finish of impressive length. This is delicious yet reserved and clearly built to age over the medium term....I toured the vineyards located in the Santa Cruz Mountains and they are indeed spectacular and if you have the chance to visit, I highly recommend it. There are varying percentages of destemming but most wines are made from a high percentage of ...Read More »

2006 Laurel Glen Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. An expansive bouquet displays flamboyant dark berry compote, cherry-cola, licorice and dried rose. Palate-staining cassis and kirsch flavors are framed by silky tannins and gain an exotic candied floral quality with air. For such a deeply concentrated wine, this is strikingly lithe and precise. The finish strongly echoes the red fruit and floral notes and clings impressively. Patrick Campbell told me that he is paying much more attention to acidity these days 'because the last thing we need to worry about is getting enough sugar.'" (6/2009) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cel ...Read More »
