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

94 points Antonio Galloni: "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: "Taking its accustomed place near the head of this year's class, Ridge's classic fiel ...Read More »

2012 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L) Top Pick!
2012 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Flirting with perfection, the 2012 Dominus is composed of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Five thousand cases were produced, a relatively modest amount from this large vineyard’s big crop. Christian Moueix told me that there was plenty of heat in 2012, but there were no excessive hot spells that can plague Napa Valley vintners during the growing season and harvest. This wine’s opaque plum/purple color is accompanied by a beautiful nose of sweet crème de cassis, a touch of background oak (only 40% new oak is used), spice box ...Read More »

2012 DuMol Russian River Valley Chardonnay (1.5L) (Previously $130)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnay Russian River (4,360 cases) was aged on its lees in one-third new French oak for 11 months and underwent full malolactic fermentation. A six-vineyard blend, it is composed primarily of the Old Wente clone as well as Mt. Eden and a handful of others. Nearly 50% comes from the Dutton Vineyard and the rest from the Heintz, DuMOL Estate, Lorenzo, Ritchie and a few others.

Long on the finish. Drink now."

Sweet floral notes meld into juicy red berries, spice box and cedar, all of which are laced together with remarkable elegance. Silky tannins add to an impression of refinement and total finesse. In 2009, Staglin’s Cabernet Sauvignon impresses for its superb delineation and nuance. The 2009 can be enjoyed with minimum cellaring if given a few hours in decanter. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. (AG)" (12/2012)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dense blue/purple-colored 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate possesses a complex bouquet o ...Read More »

1984 Inglenook "Reserve Cask" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and exotic, with lots of coffee, cedar and spice overtones to the gentle core of very ripe cherry and raspberry. A stylish wine with plenty of tannin to support it, but the dominant characteristics are fruit and suppleness." (7/1990) K&L Notes: This was made during the reign of Connecticut spirits company Heublein, which is not remembered by Inglenook faithfuls as the winery's better days. But as the 1990 Spectator review indicates, there were still some bright moments at the venerable estate.

2013 Ridge Vineyards "Lytton Springs" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (1.5L)

Powerful and explosive in the glass, the 2013 boasts tons of inky blue/purplish fruit, mocha, spices, new leather, lavender and licorice. Readers will have to give the Lytton Springs at least a few years to shed some baby fat, but it is nearly impossible to resist, even at this early stage.

It brings together the silkiness of the 2007 with the power and darkness of the 2008, a combination that is hugely appealing, to say the least. With a little air, the 2009 can be enjoyed young, but it is best cellared for at least a few years, which will allow some of the baby fat to drop off.

Juicy, spicy and tight but not hard, with a pungent core of acidity and an impression of briary, earthy minerality giving the wine plenty of personality.

2009 Robert Foley Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Beautifully crafted, firm, focused and detailed, exhibiting a mix of dense dark berry, currant and raspberry flavors. Shows wonderful balance and persistence, ending with a splash of chocolate, with silky yet firm tannins. Drink now through 2024." (10/2013)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More structured, but also forward is the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. Its opaque purple color is followed by a sweet perfume of chocolate, barrique, creme de cassis, coffee bean and baking spices. Rich, full-bodied and dense with sweet tannin, unlike many 2009s which are slightly austere and somewhat closed ...Read More »

1985 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classically-styled 1985 Napa bottling exhibits a huge, sweet, jammy, cassis, and toasty nose that soars from the glass. Full-bodied, soft, and velvety-textured, with outstanding concentration and a smooth as silk finish, this fully mature wine is capable of lasting another 10-15 years. (RP)" (4/1995)

1985 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

92 points Robert Parker: "Consistently a low to mid-ninety point Cabernet Sauvignon, Chateau Montelena's 1985 remains frightfully backward at nearly ten years of age. The 1985, 1987, and 1991 have the potential to be three of the longest-lived Montelena Cabernets this fine winery has ever produced. In this tasting, the 1985 was unevolved and youthful, with an opaque ruby/purple color, and a closed but promising nose of cassis fruit, earth, minerals, and oak. Full-bodied, marvelously concentrated and pure, this highly extracted, muscular, blockbuster effo... Read More »

1989 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

89 points Robert Parker: "1989, the current vintage in release, is successful for Silver Oak. The 1989 Cabernet Sauvignon-Alexander Valley exhibits a spicy, vanillin, and black olive-scented nose, rich, velvety, medium to full-bodied flavors, low acidity, and a long, lush, jammy fruit-filled finish. It does not possess any of the hard tannin or hollowness that plague many 1989s. Drink it over the next 7-8 years." (10/93)

2004 Pride Mountain Sonoma/Napa Counties Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated, bright medium ruby. Crushed cassis, licorice and minerals on the nose. Pure, primary black fruit and mineral flavors framed and enlivened by surprisingly juicy acidity. Very firmly built, vibrant wine with the structure to reward aging. Winemaker Bob Foley noted that Pride's cabernet had better than usual acidity in 2004, and certainly more than in 2003 or 2002; the harvest here lasted into early November. If the 2004 Reserve Claret is better than this, it will be a stunner." (6/2007)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Soft, rich and ripe, this is one of those Cabernets that feel ...Read More »
