2006 York Creek "Springhouse Block" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2006 York Creek "Springhouse Block" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

After the last few years I think just about everyone has heard us pontificating about just how good, and how insanely inexpensive, the York Creek wines are. Luckily for us and our thirsty customers Fritz Maytag kept deep cellars over the years and still has plenty of wine for us to sell. After the rousing success of past vintages we just keep reloading because the wines are that good and you keep asking us for more. Our latest find is four wines from the mid-2000s, all 100% Cabernet and is from single blocks on the Estate. These wines were all made by Fr... Read More »

2006 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color as well as more subtle smoke, graphite, damp earth, creme de cassis, and blackberry characteristics, and a youthful, full-bodied mouthfeel with impressive concentration, texture, and length. This blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Franc from high elevation vineyards (2,000 feet) is capable of lasting two decades or more. This iconic winery continues to offer wines with personalities and styles that set them apart (especially the estate wines) from just ab ...Read More »

2006 Turley "Juvenile" California Zinfandel

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The easiest drinking Zinfandel, at least one meant for immediate consumption (although one could argue that all Zinfandels should be consumed in the near-term) is the 2006 Juvenile. Made from the young-vine cuvees at Turley, the wine is a sensual, up-front, medium-bodied Zinfandel with dark ruby color, plenty of berry fruit, but some underbrush, pepper, and spice. Drink it over the next several years." (12/2007) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full ruby-red. Briary dark berries and licorice on the slightly liqueur-like nose. Spicy red fruit and pepper flavors are nicely framed by fr ...Read More »

2006 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Les Pavots (a 2,730-case blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot) exhibits big notes of chocolate fudge intermixed with dark berry fruit, forest floor, underbrush, and some smoky oak. The wine is full-bodied, with remarkable intensity, low acidity, and a fleshy, opulent mouthfeel. This wine should drink well for 15-20+ years." (12/2008) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Deeply concentrated, rich and complex, with loamy earth, dried berry, currant and black licorice character. Firms up nicely on the finish.

2006 Peter Michael "Ma Belle Fille" Knights Valley Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Chardonnay Ma Belle Fille, which comes from their highest altitude vineyard, with a southerly exposure, and again, mostly old Wente clones like virtually all of these Chardonnays, has notes of quince, nectarines, white currants, and almost a liqueur of rocks. The wine has superb concentration and strikes me as one of the very best of the 2006 Chardonnays made in California." (12/2008) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright greenish yellow. Knockout nose combines citrus peel, white peach, minerals, iodine, spices and creme brulee; I'd love to throw this into a Burgundy tasting. R ...Read More »

2006 DuMol Russian River Valley Syrah

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "The DuMOL stamp of full-blown richness and depth is impossible to miss here, and, if arguably just a bit frontal when compared to its mates, it is no less intense or mouthfilling. It teeters on the edge of being a little too ripe, and it finishes with a palpable streak of unbuffered heat, but its lack of refinement does not hold it back, and its brashness will be easy to forgive when it is partnered with hearty, highly seasoned meats." (3/2009) K&L Notes: 92 points Wine Spectator: "A robust mouthful that serves up a rich, complex mix of ripe currant, herb and tar not... Read More »

2006 Turley "Mead Ranch" Atlas Peak Zinfandel (Previously $60)

88-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Zinfandel Mead Ranch is from the cooler Atlas Peak area of southern Napa. The wine has great fruit, full body, loads of cassis, and briery raspberry notes intermixed with some pepper, soil undertones, and underbrush. The wine has fabulous ripeness, full body, and a long finish."

I kept looking for rough edges but there were none to be found."

Full-bodied, with tannins that are firm, gripping and taut." (2/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Petite Sirah Pepperland is appropriately named. Aggressive oak and spice as well as background blue and black fruit aromas jump from the glass of this medium to full-bodied, tannic, closed, angular, and astringent effort.

2006 Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder (81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot) plays it slightly closer to the vest, and at least at this tasting, seemed to be the most backward and tannic of these wines, which surprised me. There is some creme de cassis fruit intermixed with lead pencil shavings and an almost truffle-like note, but the wine is backward and foreboding. (RP)" (12/2009) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Ripe and rich, highly aromatic if a touch fumey in the bargain, this big wine combines sweet cassis notes and a full measure of creamy, slightly toasty oak with hi ...Read More »

A nearly flawless, monumental effort, the 2006 boasts an extraordinary opaque purple color as well as a sumptuous bouquet of spring flowers, licorice, chocolate, toffee, espresso roast and blackberries. This multilayered wine is built like a skyscraper, with terrific intensity, but no heaviness, stunning richness, full body and great purity.

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. Vibrant redcurrant and wild strawberry flavors are light on their feet, with tangy citrus peel and white pepper adding verve. Finishes sweet, clean and brisk.

From rocky volcanic mountaintop soils, it is always a whopper in terms of alcohol (15.8% in 2004). The deep ruby/purple-colored, Chateauneuf du Pape-like 2004 boasts a sensational perfume of raspberry jam, scorched earth, pepper, and garrigue.

2006 Hundred Acre "Deep Time" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Finally in the bottle, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Deep Time is the only wine from that vintage I tasted. Most of these wines spend 38-40 months in barrel and as a result seem to be remarkably elegant and complex without showing any new oak. This cuvee is a selection from Kayli Morgan that has been aged longer. Notes of spice box, white chocolate, espresso and sweet black cherries and black currants tumble from the glass of this full-bodied, round, generously endowed wine that has no hard edges. It should continue to drink well for another 12-15+ years. ...Read More »

Fleshy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors gain depth with air, taking a turn to boysenberry and plum. Dusty tannins add grip to the long, meaty finish. I'd be inclined to drink this now for its early complexity." (12/2008) K&L Notes: Producer note: The estate wines of Rhys Vineyards are made from organic and biodynamically farmed fruit.

2006 Vérité "Le Désir" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Extremely tannic at the age of five years, and that astringency accentuates the dryness, making the wine austere and distant. It has a dense, complex core of blackberries, coated with immaculately fine, sweet oak. Feels important and dramatic, but too young. Begs to be housed in a good cellar for a good eight years." (5/2011) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Black fruits, licorice and cedar on the nose.

2006 J Vineyards Russian River Valley Chardonnay

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "A fine wine that shows the classic structure of Russian River Chardonnay, and also a steely minerality that makes it a partner for food. That doesn’t mean it’s without fruit. The flavors of apricots, pears and more exotic tropical fruits are explosive, enhanced with smoky oak. Likely to develop bottle complexity over the next four years." (11/08) Winemaker George Bursick combines Old World techniques with New World fruit, and the results are quite tasty.

Of the 2005 Chateau Montelena Napa Chardonnay,92 points Robert Parker writes: "One of the few California Chardonnays that behaves like a grand cru Chablis is Chateau Montelena’s non-malolactic Chardonnay Napa, which rarely sees more than 10-20% new oak. As usual, the 2005 exhibits a nervous edge as well as loads of lemon butter, green apple, and white currant-like characteristics, laser-like precision, superb acidity, and surprising intensity as well as richness.

Fairly full-bodied and pleasantly supple in feel, it is at once both accessible and rather deep, and, if it has tannins in place for five years of growth, it is already inviting and will partner nicely with savory meats in the mid-term.

2006 Porter Creek "Angeli Vineyard" Old Vine Carignane

From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of cassis, dark cherry, licorice and cracked pepper. Deep and sappy, with concentrated red and dark berry liqueur flavors and mounting spiciness. Became fresher and fruitier with aeration, suggesting that it needs decanting or a little bottle aging to show its best." (May/June '08) Located in California's Russian River Valley, Porter Creek Vineyards is owned and operated by father and son George and Alex Davis. A proponent of biodynamic and organic viticulture at the... Read More »

2006 Peter Michael "Belle Côte" Knights Valley Chardonnay

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a large-scaled wine, but with flamboyant marmalade, white currant, honeysuckle, and tropical fruit notes, less minerality than La Carriere, but beautiful acidity and a stony, steely personality not dissimilar to a grand cru in Burgundy such as Corton-Charlemagne. (RP)" (12/2008) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright, pale yellow. Subdued but pure aromas of lemon drop, grapefruit, pineapple and hazelnut, complicated by exotic lichee and rose oil. Supple and quite subtle in the mouth but with plenty of fat and breadth. Very stony and suave chardonnay, with a long, spicy finis ...Read More »

2006 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep, bright red. Sexy strawberry and raspberry scents, with suggestions of fresh flowers, smoky minerals and gingerbread. Silky in texture and seductively sweet, with spicy red fruit preserve flavors that gain energy with air. Finishes clean and brisk, with the attractive red fruit flavors lingering impressively." (5/2008) Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A high-toned raspberry and cranberry fruit nose that also displays subtle spice and menthol hints introduces round, supple and easy to like flavors up until the finish that is overtly warm if attractively sappy." (10/2008) Wine Spectator: "Mature and eart ...Read More »

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 Williams Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Vivid red berry, cherry and blood orange aromas are complemented by fresh rose and dusty minerals. Racy strawberry and raspberry flavors are impressively precise, with tangy orange zest and floral pastille qualities adding verve. Gentle tannins emerge with air and extend through the long, spicy finish." (6/2008) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Splitting the difference between the sweet cherry succulence of its Russian River Valley siblings and the slightly leaner style found in the other offerings from Williams Selyem, this attractive wine has the markings of a wine that coul ...Read More »

2006 Big Basin Vineyards "Mandala" Santa Cruz Mountains Syrah

Slower to reveal itself than other Big Basin wines, the Mandala Syrah is just starting to hint at its potential. It comes the winery's Estate vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains as well Fairview Ranch in the Santa Lucia Highlands. The combination of fruit creates a wine that, with some air, opens up to display aromas of plum, rhubarb, spice, white pepper and a little pine pitch. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with flavors of blackberry, Big cherry cedar box and earth. Firm tannins and lingering spice on the finish. This wine will really start ... Read More »

2006 Kosta Browne "Kanzler Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

92 points Wine Spectator: "Spicy, minty floral scents have a wild berry edge. Taut and focused, with a nice balance of acidity and tannins. The flavors build on the finish, and this ends with a burst of cherry and berry fruit, mineral and sage notes." (7/2009) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red color. Ripe red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by clove, mace and cinnamon. Supple and round, with sweet red berry preserve flavors, soft tannins and building ripeness. Maintains admirable clarity on the long, juicy finish, which leaves behind a strong flavor of raspberry. For a rich wine, this is focused ...Read More »

2006 Dehlinger "Estate" Russian River Valley Syrah

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Although deep and defined Pinot Noir first leaps to mind when Dehlinger's name is mentioned, this ripe and well-crafted Syrah is a wine much deserving of attention as well. It has plenty of substance and grip, and its subtle peppery seasonings and its suggestions of smoked meat convincingly put it on the varietal track, yet it stands apart from the crowd by dint of its precision and professional winemaking hand. Its rare mix of power and real finesse bodes quite well for the future, and, if needing at least three or four years of further patience, it cou ...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.'"

2006 Denner "Ditch Digger" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

90 points Wine Spectator: "Weaves together an elegant mix of savory wild berry, herb, pepper and mineral. Full-bodied and well-balanced, ending with a crisp, minerally edge. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Drink now through 2014." (03/09) 90 points Robert Parker: "A blend of 37% Grenache, 28% Syrah, 26% Mourvedre, and 9% Cinsault, the 2006 The Ditch Digger reminds me of an old-styled Fonsalette from the southern Rhone. Elegant aromas of sweet berry, raspberry, and cherry fruit along with licorice, pepper, and Provencal herbs emerge from this fr... Read More »
