2014 Ramey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $55)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is classic Ramey Cabernet all the way. Blackberries, currants, scorched earth, and charcoal aromatics, medium to full body, great elegance, and notable concentration all make for a top notch 2014 that can be drunk today or cellared for 10-15 years. The blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 6% Malbec, and 3% Petit Verdot, and it’s made in decent enough quantities that it should be easy to find." (6/2018) 93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is just as appealing today as it was last year. Supple, open-knit and expressive ...Read More »

2014 Marietta "Gibson Block" McDowell Valley Syrah

The texture is fine grained, dry and layered, with concentrated black cherry, smoke, clove and cedar flavors that unfold slowly on the palate and finish.

2015 Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Vinous: "One of the highlights in this range, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Mt. Veeder) is seriously beautiful. A healthy dollop (24%) of Merlot gives the wine terrific mid-palate pliancy and fruit depth to play off of the more intensely mineral and soil-drive signatures, of which there are many. Raspberry jam, crushed rocks, blood orange, white pepper and red cherry jam infuse this deep, powerful Cabernet Sauvignon from Robert Craig. I would give the 2015 at least a few years to settle down, as the tannins are imposing at this early stage. (AG)" (3/2018) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From one o ...Read More »

2013 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite of the latest release Chardonnays, the 2013 Chardonnay Horseshoe Vineyard is a screaming effort that got a few wows in the notes. More ripe and rounded than the Alpine Vineyard (at the moment anyways, as Kevin commented that this cuvee continues to pick up more and more focus with bottle age), its light/medium gold color is followed by tons of ripe white peach and orchard fruits, toasted nuts, crushed rock and white flowers. Rounded, concentrated and rich on the palate, yet with vibrant underlying acidity that cuts through the finish, give it ...Read More »

2015 DuMol "Eddie's Patch - Greywacke Vineyard" Russian River Valley Syrah

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Seemingly more Hermitage-like compared to the more Côte-Rôtie styled 2016, the 2015 Syrah Greywacke Vineyard Eddie's Patch offers in-your-face notes of blue fruits, graphite, ozone/lite gunpowder, and background meatiness. It’s a deep, serious wine that has a stacked mid-palate, plenty of tannins, and a great, great finish. It’s certainly one of the top Syrahs in this report, as well as from anywhere in California."

2015 The Hilt "Old Guard" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

96 points Vinous: "The Hilt's 2015 Pinot Noir Old Guard is a big, powerful wine that won't be ready to drink for at least a few years. Ample and dramatic in build, the 2015 exudes richness. A host of red-toned fruit, sage, mint and rose petal notes get an extra kick of aromatic lift from the whole clusters. The 2015 finishes with great focus and intensity especially for the year. This is a remarkable wine in every way. The 2015 is mostly Sanford & Benedict, with some fruit from Radian. 96+ points.

There is not much subtlety here, and yet this wine is simply glorious. Fruit sources are Sanford & Benedict, Radian and Bentrock.

With compelling purity of fruit, building minerality, bright acidity, and an understated elegance, this beautiful 2015 needs 4-5 years of bottle age and will keep for two decades." 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Displaying a deep garnet-purple color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard has loads of oak, blackberry preserves and warm plums with tou ...Read More »

2010 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Vinous: "Not surprisingly, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Martha's Vineyard is the least expressive of these wines. At the same time, so much of its appeal is in its tightly-coiled energy and tension. Cherry pit, smoke, blood orange, mint and spice open up with time in the glass, but the 2010 is clearly built for cellaring. The wine's brightness and focus are compelling, but the 2010 needs time.

There is a lot to like, but readers will have to be patient, as the tannins are imposing.

Totally alive in the glass, the 2010 captures the essence of this cold, late harvest. Hints of menthol, violets and crushed rocks all flow through to the incisive, vibrant finish.

(5/2018) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Altagracia has slightly muted black cherries, crushed black plums and cassis with hints of licorice, black soil and cracked pepper plus a waft of tapenade.

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2015 IX Proprietary Red Estate sports a deep garnet-purple color and nose of smoked meat, blackberries and black currants with suggestions of baking spices, dark chocolate, fertile earth, dried Provence herbs, cardamom and lavender plus a touch of cigar box.

2013 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (6L)

Winery Notes: "Our 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in color and entices you with a nose of raspberry, cassis and loose pipe tobacco.

2014 Bien Nacido Estate "The Captain - Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

97 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard The Captain is one of the very finest wines I have tasted from Trey Fletcher and Bien Nacido Estate. Silky, floral and nuanced, the Captain is all finesse. The purity of the red-toned fruit is simply remarkable. As striking as the 2014 is today, it best drinking lies in the future. (AG)" (9/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pinot Noir The Captain wafts from the glass with complex aromas of wood smoke, wild berries and savory forest floor.

2014 Bien Nacido Estate "Old Vines LXXIII - Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyards Old Vines emerges from the M and Q blocks, both planted in 1973. Interestingly, the Old Vines is quite a bit more delicate than the straight Bien Nacido Pinot. There is almost no impression of tannin, as all the elements are so well balanced. I expect the 2014 will reward readers with a long drinking window of pure pleasure." (9/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Bien Nacido Vineyard LXXIII Pinot Noir is developing beautifully, revealing aromas of red berries, plums, candied peel, sweet soil and fallen oak leaves. On the palate, it's ...Read More »

2015 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (Pre-Arrival) New!
2015 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Vinous: "(98+) One of the highlights in this tasting, the 2015 Monte Bello will soon take its place among the greatest Monte Bellos ever made. Powerful, deep and explosive, the 2015 possesses magnificent concentration and richness in every dimension. Even with all of its raciness, the 2015 has terrific aromatic presence and regal tannins. The 2015 is a bit less showy than it has been in the past, but it was also just bottled two weeks before this tasting. Readers who own it will be absolutely thrilled. (AG)" (8/2017)

2014 Bien Nacido Estate "X Block - Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Syrah

96 points Vinous: "The 2014 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard X Block has a lot of everything. Powerful, dense and explosive, it offers superb depth and intensity in every dimension. A rich, full-throttle Syrah, the X Block is going to need a lot of time to settle down, but it is magnificent, even at this very early stage." (9/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard X Block offers up a deep bouquet of dark chocolate, red and black plums, grilled meat and cassis.
