2006 Beaulieu Vineyard "Tapestry Reserve" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Proprietary Red Wine Tapestry Reserve (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot) is the finest example of this cuvee I have ever tasted. Flowery, licorice-infused, cassis notes intermixed with forest floor and lead pencil shavings are followed by a layered, impressively built wine with real opulence, lots of red and black fruits, low acidity, and lush tannin. It should drink well for 15+ years." (12/2009) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A terrific wine, delicious and classic in structure. Shows the beauty of the blend, which consists of five Bordea ...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 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points James Suckling: "This has a leafy currant, mint, and raspberry nose. Complex and very pretty. Full bodied and very firm, with super fine tannins and a long, long finish. This is subtle and complex, but needs another three years." (2/2011) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, cassis and boysenberry aromas complemented by licorice, violet, menthol and bitter chocolate. Juicy, intensely flavored and quite fresh but a bit youthfully disjointed, with a firm tannin/acid spine supporting the crushed dark berry and menthol flavors. The wine's substantial tannins will need time to knit, bu ...Read More »

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 »

Full-bodied with superb texture and length as well as an amazing 50-second finish, this beauty just goes from strength to strength, admirably displaying the incredible potential of this unusual obsidian soil terroir.

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 »

Packed with blackberry, cassis and smoky, new oak flavors, it shows a firm structure of tannins and acidity. Beautiful now with a grilled steak, and should age well for at least a decade."

2006 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The soft, round 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa possesses good berry fruit, seductive tannins, and minimal depth. It represents a very fine glass of Cabernet for enjoying over the next 6-7 years. (RP)" (12/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red-ruby. Black fruits, licorice and exotic spices on the somewhat medicinal, uncompromising nose. Then sweeter in the mouth than the nose suggests, with dark berry, licorice and mint flavors joined by tobacco and graphite. Not complex but finishes with good lift and length-and not at all cooked.

Fresh red fruit flavors are firmed by tangy minerals and take on a refreshingly bitter cherry skin quality with air.

Hints of sweet French oak lead you into the first sip confirming this is a special wine. The wine is full, yet soft in the mouth, dense and structured with mouth coating velvety tannins.

2006 Screaming Eagle "Second Flight" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Here the significant presence of Merlot (33%) helps to round out the Cabernet Sauvignon that is so distinctive in Screaming Eagle. Overall, this is a fairly generous expression of the year with plenty of the estate’s signatures. Over time, a compelling melange of savory herbs, spices and minerals comes alive in the glass. This is a super-impressive first vintage for Second Flight. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

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 not at all wanting for either extract or depth, and its pushy ripeness affords it a certain frontal aspect, but, make no mistake, this is a raw and decidedly undeveloped wine that very much needs to unwind. It is not to be drunk any time soon, and its real greatness lies a good seven to ten years down the line."

2006 Rochioli "Estate" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a complex, dynamic wine at the core of this Pinot, needing plenty of air or several years of bottle age to show itself. Over the course of several days, the wine transforms from taut red raspberry and some funky reduction toward lovely, expressive depths of flavor. It has the ping of perfectly ripe black-cherry skin, built on that sweet tannin to last five to eight years in the cellar." (10/2008) 92 points Wine Spectator: "A fragrant, delicate style, with pretty plum, black cherry and wild berry scents that are both rich and elegant. This is sharply focused and displays exce ...Read More »

2006 Pax "Alder Springs Vineyard - The Terraces" Mendocino County Syrah

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The beautiful 2006 Syrah Alder Springs The Terraces is blend of 97% Syrah co-fermented with 3% Viognier. 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. (RP)" (12/2008) Wine Spectator: "Firmly tannic, with a beefy herb, dried berry, sage and mineral edge that's tight and concentrated, offering hints of black cherry and wild berry fruit.

2006 Williams-Selyem "Allen Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Intensely spicy bouquet of strawberry, raspberry, anise and fresh bay, picking up smoky minerality with aeration. Tangy red fruit flavors combine depth with energy, offering silky texture and excellent clarity. Turns spicier and deeper on the finish, which is remarkably persistent and leaves behind a zesty bite of redcurrant. This is outstanding. (ST)" (6/2008) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Allen bottling typically needs time to come around. This ’06 shows the dusty tannins that close it down a bit in its youth, suggesting a good five years in the cellar. Silky and refi ...Read More »

2006 Rhys "Alpine Hillside" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top current release of Pinot Noir is undoubtedly the Rhys 2006 Pinot Noir Alpine Hillside (200 cases). An impressive array of black raspberries, blueberries, violets, and crushed rocks soar from the glass of this dark ruby-colored wine. Structured, with moderate tannin, crisp, zesty acidity, and gorgeous purity, this is a sensational Pinot Noir that should evolve for at least a decade or more. (RP)" (12/2008) 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A beautifully complex nose features both dark red berry and blue fruit aromas nuanced by hints of herb, anise and a touch of minerality that cont ...Read More »

2006 Groth Reserve Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L (Previously $200)

95 points from the Wine Spectator: "Pure, rich and focused, full-bodied and concentrated, showing firm black cherry and blackberry fruit, with black olive, sage, dusty earth and mineral hints. Gains depth and complexity, with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2010 through 2017." (10/15/09) 921 points and a Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast: "Not very pleasant now due to the sharpness and bitterness of the texture, as well as the wood tannins that come from aging in 100% new oak. The flavors are primary fruit blackberries, cherries and black currants.... Read More »
