2014 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2014 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has a dense opaque purple color, a kiss of blackberry and cassis fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel with ripe tannin and a long finish. It is very Caymus in its immediate accessibility, but has plenty of staying power and depth. This is lush, full, intense and pure. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. (RP)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: 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...

2013 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An absolute epic wine is the 2013 Merlot, a blend of 95% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. It is no wimpy wine either, with the natural alcohol slightly north of 15%. A gorgeous nose including roasted espresso, melted black chocolate, blackberry, plum and cassis offers an exceptional set of aromatics. The wine has beautiful ripeness, headiness and a long finish of close to 45+ seconds. This is a beauty of terrific purity, texture and personality. Few California Merlots will ever be capable of equaling this. Drink it over the next 2 ...Read More »

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Papillon Proprietary Red is 100% from Napa and is a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. This killer wine has an inky purple color and offers notes of espresso roast intermixed with white chocolate, creme de cassis, blackberry and a touch of toasty oak. The wine was aged 16 months in French oak, of which 40% was new. Broad and opulent, with great intensity, purity and depth, this is another stunner from Dave Phinney, a.k.a. Orin Swift.

2013 Ramey "Ritchie Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay Top Pick!
2013 Ramey "Ritchie Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard stands out in this range for its striking aromatics. Sweet floral notes open up first. The Ritchie is just as subtle and nuanced on the palate. Classy and polished throughout, the Ritchie is all about finesse. It should drink well for the better part of the next decade. It's hard to know where to begin with these wines from David Ramey, as there are so many highlights, but one common theme is the quality of the entry-level wines.

2013 Amapola Creek By Richard Arrowood Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2013 Amapola Creek By Richard Arrowood Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Arrowood deserves a lot more credit than he often gets for his Cabernet Sauvignons, which are long-lived. Some of the early Château St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignons have stood the test of time, and those made under the Arrowood label, especially his Reserves, are 30+ year wines at the minimum. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, is brilliant. Notes of graphite, crème de cassis, blueberry and blackberry along with some espresso are all present in this dense, full-bodied wine with great fruit, beautiful puri ...Read More »

Brilliant purity, a dense purple color, superb blackberry and floral-infused blueberry fruit and cassis, a full-bodied mouthfeel, moderate but sweet tannin and a long, layered, texture and finish make for a profound Cabernet Sauvignon that actually sells at a bargain price for what is in the bottle.

Its deep ruby color is followed by sensational notes of sweet cherries, black raspberries, crushed flowers and a touch of licorice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multi-dimensional, with seamless texture, this is California Pinot Noir at its finest. Drink it any time over the coming 7-8 years.

This medium-bodied wine should drink nicely for 3-4 years. Under the Ramey label, David Ramey has always done a top-notch job with Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as Syrah, although he rarely gets enough credit for the latter.

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.

2014 Siduri "Garys' Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Showing a more savory edge, with lots of dried herbs, leather, autumn leaves and assorted red fruit characteristics, the 2014 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard is medium-bodied, nicely texture and has fine tannin that emerge on the finish. Despite the savory aromatic slant, it's sweetly fruited and balanced on the palate. I suspect it will show nicely 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 walking away soon.

A benchmark California Chardonnay from vineyards located in the cool region of Coombsville, which enjoys unique protection from wind by the hills east of the city of Napa.

Tasting notes from the winery on the 2015 vintage: "The 2015 Far Niente Chardonnay presents fresh and bright aromatics of tropical fruit, melon and hints of fig.

It is not as dense and concentrated as the 2013, but I love its vibrancy and beautiful subtleties and nuances. It is another top-notch effort from Pahlmeyer to drink over the next 7-8 years.

2014 Lewis Cellars "Mason's" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Here is a full throttle Cabernet that holds nothing back, but even if fairly intemperate when it comes to pushy ripeness, it is long on deep and well-defined blackcurrant fruit and never quite steps over the lines of being too much. It is a big, mouthfilling effort that will never be accused of timidity, and, despite being a little too tannic and hot in the late-going, it does not lose its very sure varietal bearings. Age is a must, and a half-dozen years seems the minimum wait, but it has the muscle and fruity mass to keep going for a half-do ...Read More »

It teams deep, optimally ripened fruit with just the right amount of sweet, ever so slightly toasty oak, and, while always quite rich, it is wonderfully lively and dynamic from beginning to end.

2015 Belle Glos "Clark & Telephone" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

Belle Glos is the project of Joseph Wagner, son of Caymus winemaker Chuck Wagner of "Special Selection" Cabernet fame. But this winery is devoted entirely to distinctive, single-vineyard Pinot Noir. The Clark & Telephone vineyard may be prosaically named--it's at the corner of Clark Avenue and Telephone Road--but it is unusual in that it was planted on its own roots, in the early 1970s, to the old "Martini" clone, and was one of the first Pinot vineyards in this cool, windy coastal valley.

It, too, is built for the future and is not a Cabernet meant to charm right away, and, if it finishes with a fair bit of tannic toughness, its more lasting message is one of vigorous, impressively concentrated, extraordinarily long-lasting blackcurrant fruit.

2006 Heitz Cellar "Trailside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Spectator: "Pure, rich and graceful, with an elegant mix of plum, currant, blackberry, licorice, savory herb and dusty oak notes. Very complete and easy to enjoy now. The tannins are chewy and gripping, but this one is ready and should hold another five years with ease.-2006 California Cabernet blind retrospective (December 2015). Drink now through 2022. (Web Only, 2016)"

2014 Frog's Leap "Estate" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

The first estate grown cabernet was released by Frog's Leap in 2012. The winery notes for the 2014 edition: "2014 represents the third vintage of our all estate-grown Cabernet sauvignon grapes but in many ways it represents four decades of tasting, learning, experimenting and executing on the passion inspired in me by the words of André Tchelistcheff. ‘Rutherford Dust’—the idea that a wine could smell and taste so much of the place from where it was grown. Our 2014 Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon is classic in every way: intense aromas of dark fruits, bl... Read More »

2013 Hirsch "San Andreas Fault" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Vinous: "The 2013 Pinot Noir Estate San Andreas Fault is another pretty, expressive wine that reflects the mid-weight style of the year. There is a lovely sense of purity on the fruit, yet the 2013 remains tightly wound and in need of time to fully open up. Hints of crushed flowers, dried cherries, mint and spices are nicely layered throughout. (AG)" (2/2016)

2014 Lewis Cellars Napa Valley Syrah

95 points Wine Spectator: "Bold, polished and impeccably structured, with black raspberry and smoky mocha aromas and rich, complex flavors of blueberry, spiced cinnamon and licorice. Tannins ease in and frame the finish. Drink now through 2029" (11/2016) Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Unbridled ripeness simply steals the scene here, and, if the wine is undeniably rich, it is far more directed by chocolate and sweet oak than by specific Syrah spice. It is quite full in body and fairly thick on the palate with palpable heat flaring up at the finish, but it still impresses with its strength and sheer volu ...Read More »

2013 Lynmar "Quail Hill Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Shy in the glass, this wine needs more time in bottle to unravel its complexities of rose petal and cardamom, flanked by crisp red cherry and raspberry. Tangy acidity is the star and backbone of the lovely, structured wine, which is delightful now, but worth cellaring through 2023. (VB)" (2/2016) Wine Spectator: "Delivers a pleasant offering of zesty raspberry, cherry and blueberry notes, turning supple and gaining depth and length. (JL, Web-2016)"

2012 Joseph Swan "Trenton Estate" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* Silky yet slightly grippy, this is a mineral-driven wine, with violet and spicy cardamom aromas atop bright, vibrant swathes of cherry and wild strawberry. This vineyard is where Joseph Swan himself first planted Pinot Noir, it retains all the promise and greatness of his initial discovery of this magical place along the Laguna Ridge." (4/2016) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby-red. Youthful, highly perfumed red and dark berry scents are complemented by deeper notes of cola, mocha and black cardamon, with a sexy floral nuance building in the glass. Smooth, ...Read More »

2014 Martinelli "Bondi Home Ranch - Water Trough Vineyard" Green Valley Pinot Noir

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The cool-climate 2014 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch, from the Green Valley in the Russian River, is absolutely spectacular. It saw 80% new oak because it was so concentrated, and it seems to have sucked it up and only reveals just a slight wood spice to its full-bodied, beautifully textured, black raspberry and blackberry fruit. This is one of the profound 2014s and should drink well for 15-20 years. One of the great families of Northern California, and of course, one of the highest quality producers, the Martinellis - and rather remarkably so - only esta ...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 »
