94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Bordeaux Proprietary Blend Papillion (15,748 cases) was aged 16 months in 40% new French oak. Fairly priced for what the consumer gets, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc (15.1% alcohol) exhibits notes of forest floor, graphite, blackcurrant, blackberry fruit and spring flowers followed by a full-bodied, unctuously textured, deep, rich pure wine to drink over the next 10-15+ years.

2014 Dominus "Napanook" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend Top Pick!
2014 Dominus "Napanook" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

95 points James Suckling: "Gorgeous aromas of sweet tobacco, iodine and oysters. Blackcurrants, too. Subtle. Medium to full body, elegant and refined tannins, and yet there's also delicious, understated complexity. Savory. A joy to drink now, but this will improve with age." (1/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Napanook is, once again, a very serious wine. Dark, powerful and brooding, the 2014 possesses remarkable intensity packed into its mid-weight frame. Smoke, scorched earth, tobacco, graphite, savory herbs and menthol add to an impression of gravitas. The 2014 doesn't quite have the depth or powe ...Read More »

Gently spiced notes appear on the finish, adding dimensions of complexity and nuance. Today the 2010 is a bit closed in on itself and a touch compact, while the aromatics aren't quite as precise as they could be. I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted at Conn Valley this year.

It is moderately full, slightly fleshy in feel and very well-balanced, and, while it impresses as a Pinot of many parts, it impresses at least as much for the way in which those parts are seamlessly joined.

2013 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

Offering fabulous notes of black cherries, currants, crushed rocks and sous bois, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, building tannin and a killer finish. This is a sensational Pinot Noir that can be enjoyed today, or cellared for a decade or more.

The wine is fully ripe without tipping to excess, and, while its integral tannins and firming acidity work to limit its accessibility at the moment, they provide a fine backbone for aging, and there is no question but that this one will evolve very nicely over the next six to eight years."

97 points Vinous: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch, from Marinelli's coolest Pinot site, is another stunner. Silky, nuanced and wonderfully expressive on the palate, the 2015 possesses remarkable intensity but in a decidedly mid-weight style by Martinelli standards. Dense and compact in its center, the 2015 needs at least a few years to open up. Even today, though, it is dazzling.

2014 Martinelli "Zio Tony Ranch" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay Zio Tony Ranch is another super-impressive wine from Martinelli. Rich, unctuous and super-expressive, the 2014 has it all. Lemon confit, dried flowers, chamomile, orange peel, mint and white pepper give the 2014 its aromatic and flavor signatures. Powerful and enveloping to the core, the 2014 Zio Tony is immensely satisfying, not to mention flat-out delicious. (AG)" (3/2017) K&L Notes: Robert Parker writes: "One of the great families of Northern California, and of course, one of the highest quality producers, the Martinellis – and rather remarkabl...

2013 Ramey "Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay

95 points Vinous: "The 2013 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is one of the richest, most powerful Chardonnays in the range. Here it is the wine's phenolic and sense of vertical structure that stand out most. Even with all of its obvious richness and heft, the Hyde preserves remarkable freshness. Dried herbs, orange peel and buttery notes add nuance on the large-scaled, ample finish.

The appellation-level Chardonnays, Pi ...Read More »

2014 Siduri "Pisoni Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Maybe the best wine from Adam in 2014 is the 2014 Pinot Noir Pisoni Vineyard. Giving up the classic minerality that's common from this site, it has lots of sweet black raspberry and violet nuances, medium-bodied depth and richness and a fresh, focused, elegant style on the palate. It showed more tannic structure with time in the glass, yet given the fruit and balance, I've no doubt it will be approachable on release. While recently sold to Kendall-Jackson, Siduri’s founder, Adam Lee, remains firmly onboard as winemaker and doesn’t have any plans of walki ...Read More »

2014 DuMol "Lia's" Russian River Valley Viognier

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Once again, DuMOL has delivered a fine example of Viognier’s complex potential. If starting off with reined in, not-yet-developed fruity notes of crisp apples, ripe and still ripening peaches, a hint of minerality that adds to the wine’s sturdiness and an enriching hardwood layer that adds a note of richness without diminishing the central role of fruit at the wine’s heart, this stellar effort proves that it has depth aplenty and the potential to grow in the bottle for several years to come." (4/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Produced much like a Chardonnay and delivering a very p ...Read More »
