2014 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1L) Top Pick!
2014 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1L)

The little brother to Caymus' famed "Special Selection" Cabernet Sauvignon, the winery's Napa Valley release has also been a consistent 91+ point wine in Wine Spectator for the past 10 years--although the 2014 has not yet been professionally reviewed. It's also been a 90-and-better hit lately with Robert Parker, who recently reaffirmed his praise for the winery in Wine Advocate: "I am old enough to remember Chuck Wagner and his father, who I first met at Caymus in the late seventies. This is clearly one of Napa Valley’s iconic wineries, as well as one th... Read More »

2013 Alexander Valley Vineyards "Wetzel Family Estate" Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest mostly Merlot with a little Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The wine has a dark ruby/purple color and lovely blackcurrant, licorice-infused notes with subtle background wood spice. It is ripe, has an excellent texture, is medium-bodied and is best drunk over the next 3-4 years.

2005 Qupé "Los Olivos Cuveé" Santa Ynez Valley Rhône Blend (1.5L) (Previously $100)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lindquist’s homage to a southern Cotes du Rhone is his 2005 Los Olivos Cuvee, a blend of 40% Syrah, 37% Mourvedre, and 23% Grenache. It is a world-class effort displaying notes of tapenade, sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, earth, pepper, roasted herbs, and a subtle hint of smoke. This wine comes across like a Crozes-Hermitage from a fine vintage in France’s northern Rhone Valley. (RP)" (8/2007) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(40% Syrah, 37% Mourvedre and 23% Grenache) Medium red. Cherry and blackberry on the nose, with a mocha quality building with air.

2002 Qupe "Bien Nacido Vineyard-Hillside Reserve" Santa Maria Valley Syrah (1.5L) (Previously $150)

Then fatter, riper and sweeter than the basic 2003 Bien Nacido syrah, with blackberry, floral and spice flavors enlivened by harmonious acidity. Very suave use of oak here. Finishes long and uncompromisingly dry, with toothdusting tannins and a suggestion of cinnamon." (7/2005) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The late-released 2002 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard Hillside Estate reveals licorice, smoke, camphor, and oak characteristics.

2013 Ridge "Geyserville" Alexander Valley Zinfandel (1.5L)

94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Zinfandel Geyserville is every bit as fabulous from bottle as it was from barrel last year. Ripe and voluptuous on the palate - yet with a super-classic conception of structure, the 2013 offers superb depth and impeccable overall balance. Waves of dark red cherry, pomegranate, spice, tobacco lead to more savory/ferrous notes that develop in the glass. Saline notes give the 2013 much of its energy and vivacity. This is a tremendous effort from Ridge. (AG)" (7/2015) 93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Taking its accustomed place near the head of this year's class, Ridge's ...Read More »

2014 Ridge "Geyserville" Alexander Valley Zinfandel (1.5L)

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Zinfandel Geyserville is just as beautiful from bottle as it was from barrel. Rich, textured and dense on the palate, the 2014 exudes depth, but in the mid-weight style of the year. The complexity of the Zinfandel-based field blend comes through in spades. The 2014 is creamy and persistent, but also graced with a mid-weight, finessed personality that is impossible to resist. In 2014, the Zinfandel is on the lower side relative to the recent past, with other grapes in the blend playing more important roles. (AG)" (7/2016) K&L Notes: Winemaker notes: "Dark pur...

Dense but tightly wound and not overly sweet; has a silky texture despite possessing a strong acid spine. Finishes with palate-cleansing acids and a late spicy character.

In keeping with the style of the year, the 2011 is medium in body, feminine and gracious. Best of all, it will drink well pretty much right out of the gate.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A resoundingly great effort from this iconic producer, Ridge’s 2001 is a spectacular, still young but promising wine. Interestingly, 60% of the production from the winery’s 108 acre Monte Bello Vineyard made it into the 2001’s final blend (their 40th anniversary, by the way). The unusual blend is 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, a whopping 36% Merlot, and 8% Petit Verdot. It also carries 14.2% alcohol, which is high for this estate. On the back label, the conservative Paul Draper writes that “5-8 years of bottle age will bring generous rewards, and 20 years will bring full maturity.” At age 10, it is still an infant in terms of development, and I would not be surprised to see this 2001 last 40 years.

2013 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Red-cherry and strawberry aromas meld with rich fruit and warm baking-spice flavors to make this full-bodied wine hard to resist. The style is in the ripe, pastry shop mode, and soft tannins and acidity complete the picture. (JG)" (8/2016)

2010 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

97 points Vinous: "The 2010 Monte Bello is just as stunning as it has always been. Today, the 2010 appears to be entering a closed phase, so it is best left alone for at least another 5-10 years, perhaps longer. The signatures are super-ripe, exotic fruit, sweet aromatics and firm tannins, all of which ensure the 2010 will be utterly magnificent in a few decades. The growing season was characterized by mostly cold weather, with an unexpectedly intense heat spike in mid-October that gave the fruit a final push. One of the things that makes this vintage so compelling is the ...Read More »

2009 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 2009 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (1.5L) (98RP, 97JS, 97WS, 96VN). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Simply put, the 2009 James Berry Vineyard is one of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted from California, or anywhere for that matter. Bright, floral aromatics lead to expressive red fruit in this impossibly elegant, dazzling wine. A melange of rose petals, mint and licorice follows as the James Berry shows off its breathtaking clarity and finesse. Fine-grained, chalky tannins frame the exceptional finish. Frankly, I am surprised this is the first wine of the tasting. Where does one go from here? The 2009 James Berry is a bit of departure from previous vintages. This is the highest percentage of Grenache ever used in the blend, and a large portion of the Grenache was aged in concrete, an approach Smith has borrowed from producers in the Rhone. Originally Smith had intended to age less of the Grenache components in concrete, but the low

2007 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 2007 Saxum "Bone Rock - James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend (1.5L) (99RP, 98WS, 96ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Bone Rock, which comes from the James Berry Vineyard (82% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre, and the rest Grenache, also aged 28 months in a combination of smaller barrels, demi-muids, and pungeons), is super as well. Like its late-released sibling, it has an inky/purple color to the rim and an extraordinary, soaring set of aromatics consisting of spring flowers, pepper, graphite, blackberry and blueberry fruit with hints of raspberry and licorice and jus de viande as well. The extraordinary freshness and elegance of this wine leads to a minerality that even eclipses the Heart Stone. The finish goes on for a good 45+ seconds, and the purity is awesome. This extraordinary wine completes the 2007 portfolio of unbelievable efforts from the Smiths. (RP)" (08/2010)

Bid on this 2-magnum lot of 2008 Alesia (Rhys Vineyards) Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (1.5L) (91ST, 89BH). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid red. Strawberry, raspberry and spicecake on the nose, with a sexy sandalwood quality. In a distinctly vibrant style, with the sexy spice and red berry qualities following through in the mouth. Sappy and fine-grained wine, finishing on a suave note of candied flowers. This will be the last vintage for this wine." (06/2010)

2003 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L) (Previously $650)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Solidly in the Hillside Select model, this vigorous young Cab is dramatically ripe and powerful. The flavors of red and black currants, milk chocolate, figs and smoky vanilla erupt in the mouth, making the tastebuds jump with joy. However, there is also the structure, among the greatest in California Cabs. The acidity is fine, but the tannins are stupendously rich, sweet and complex, practically a food group in themselves. Stunning and gorgeous now in its youth..." (3/2008) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 is a singular style of wine, but by no means wimpy or u ...Read More »

2011 Ladera "Reserve" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

Wine Spectator: "Complex notes of rich berry, mocha, espresso and light oak are firm, becoming quite tannic and chewy. In that regard, this is typical of the 2011 vintage, showing more tannins and less flesh than the norm. (Web-2015)" K&L Notes: According to the winery: "The 2011 Ladera Howell Mountain Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon displays classic characteristics of cooler vintage conditions. Pure fruit expressions of wild berry, currants and ripe plum are highlighted with notes of cassis, cocoa and fresh oak spice. As the wine sits in the glass, it reveals an intriguing mineral elemen...

2003 Peter Michael "La Carriere" Knight's Valley Chardonnay (1.5 L)

97 points Robert Parker: "The spectacular Chardonnay La Carriere is becoming one of my favorite California Chardonnays as it tastes like a Corton-Charlemagne on steroids. The 2003 boasts aromas of crushed rock, quince, lemon butter, and orange marmalade, followed by a full-bodied, powerful yet extraordinarily elegant wine with an amazing finish. It should drink well for 4-5 years." (12/05) 93(+?) points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Clearer light yellow color. Dee p aromas of apricot, citrus skin, nutmeg and crushed stone.

1998 Behrens & Hitchcock Napa Merlot (1.5L)

Typically, this is one structured Merlot. A Cab drinker's merlot, even. Parker gave the 1999 Napa Merlot 91-93 points and had this to say: "The 1999 Merlot Napa (700 cases of a blend of three separate vineyards, Kenefick, Jaeger, and Alder Springs), is structured. It reveals a black/purple color, terrific fruit intensity, a big, weighty, blackberry and cherry-scented nose, and plenty of volume and power in the mouth. The smoky oak is beautifully integrated, as this wine seems to have already sucked up its new oak aging. There is more tannin in the finish... Read More »

1997 Peter Michael "Cuvée Indigene" Knight's Valley Chardonnay (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene (named so because it is fermented completely with indigenous vineyard yeasts) exhibits a light gold color, and a complex nose of smoky, leesy Chardonnay fruit intermixed with smoky, roasted hazelnuts, orange blossoms, and citrus. Full-bodied, with excellent underlying acidity, and more minerality to its flavors than Mon Plaisir, this profoundly concentrated, complex Chardonnay is a prodigious offering. Production was 550 cases, with the alcohol a boisterous 14.1%. (RP)" (12/1998) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Some sulfur quickly dissipated to reveal c ...Read More »

2005 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Napa-Sonoma Claret (1.5L)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This winery, sitting high atop Spring Mountain traversing both the Napa and Sonoma counties, has offered their two top cuvées in 2005 for this retrospective. The 2005 Proprietary Red Reserve Claret, sourced from both Napa and Sonoma, is a blend of 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers a moonless, black-of-night color and notes of black truffle and burning embers, whiffs of charcoal, blackberry and cassis, and touches of chocolate and coffee. This stunningly complex, opulent, full-bodied wine seems to have approached its peak of maturity, where ...Read More »
