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.

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 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

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.

2006 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

You should even pour the glasses and let them to stand for an hour. The interaction with oxygen will open the wine up and allow it to express its herbal, soft deliciousness.

Drink now through 2018."

2006 Aubert "Lauren Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard is a brilliant effort. 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 »

Best from 2009 through 2016."

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 Peter Michael "La Carrière" Sonoma County Chardonnay

2006 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sweet aromas of ripe cherries, black currants, plums, smoky barbecue, licorice and forest floor jump from the glass of this broad, savory, full-bodied, young, vibrant Pinot Noir. At age eight, it is just beginning to develop secondary nuances. It should continue to evolve for another decade, offering sumptuous drinking for at least 10-15 more years. This is another great success in a fabulous line-up. (RP)" (6/2014) 96 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles - Top Wines of 2012* Graceful, elegant and stylish, offering a pleasant touch of maturity, with a complex array of anise, cherry ...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. Its pushy t ...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 Buccella Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2006 Buccella Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points James Suckling: "Dried fruits like a Christmas cake, with hints of chocolate and nuts on the nose. Full bodied, with a thick and slightly jammy palate, but it's tight and velvety at the end. A fascinating wine." (2/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, a candidate for Cabernet of the vintage, reveals a gorgeous perfume of chocolate, black raspberries, flowers, ink, and graphite, followed by a full-bodied, textured, superbly concentrated wine with terrific purity as well as density...

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. (ST)" (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 ...Read More »

2006 Marcassin "Three Sisters Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Chardonnay Three Sisters Vineyard (700 cases) possesses a superb texture in addition to abundant amounts of popcorn, white currant, hazelnut, and tropical fruit blossom characteristics, superb purity as well as acidity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a beautiful finish. In a vintage that was challenging for many California Chardonnay producers, the Three Sisters and the 2006 Marcassin Estate Chardonnays stand out as candidates for 'wines of the vintage'. (RP)" (2/2010) 93 points Wine Spectator: "*Collectibles* A rich, alluring, full-bodied style, showing melon, spice and gree ...Read More »

2006 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is one of the few Cab Francs in California that works on its own. It’s really a gorgeous wine, showing the full-bodied firmness of Cabernet Sauvignon, but without the tannic weight and density. The flavors veer toward scrumptious red cherries, red currants, milk chocolate and anise, with a dry, complex finish. Lovely with a fine grilled steak and rosemary new potatoes." (7/2009) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Elegantly balanced, rich and full-bodied, with deep, supple black currant, herb, cedar and spice. Tight, focused and structured, ending with a long, complex finish." (6/2009) K&L Notes: Th... Read More »
