2014 Chappellet "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2014 Chappellet "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of blackcurrants, blackberries, mushrooms and spices. Full and very intense with lots of fruit. Firm and silky. Plenty of tension. Layered and intense. Love it now, but this will be better in 2020." (1/2017) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9/% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, is a classic example of Pritchard Hill, Chappellet and of Napa Valley. Brilliant purity, a dense purple color, superb blackberry and floral-infused blueberry fruit and cassis, a full-bodied mouthfeel, moderate but swee ...Read More »

2015 Kistler Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay

Grown in the hills above the Sonoma Valley on well-drained, volcanic soils, this Chardonnay is known for its elegance and balance. About Kistler's winemaking from Robert Parker: "This winery has long featured some of the finest terroirs on the Sonoma Coast and Russian River for Chardonnays, and their approach has clearly been very Burgundian, with full malolactic fermentation, no acid adjustments and letting the vineyard and clonal material push its personality to the forefront. Perhaps the biggest change of all has been the shift to 100% indigenous yeas... Read More »

2010 Anderson's Conn Valley "Eloge" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Elsewhere $85) Top Pick!
2010 Anderson's Conn Valley "Eloge" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Elsewhere $85)

93 points Vinous: "Grilled herbs, tobacco, menthol, licorice and plums all take shape in the 2010 Eloge. Rich, layered and expressive, the 2010 is resonant and deeply expressive throughout. 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. The wines are often terrific, but at the same time, they have also occasionally suffered from the pre ...Read More »

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)

2015 Martinelli "Bondi Home Ranch - Water Trough Vineyard" Green Valley Pinot Noir

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. Early to bloom and late to ripen, Bondi Home Ranch enjoys an especially long growing season.

2014 DuMol Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* More than once we have found a great deal to like in the straight appellation bottlings of top-notch Pinot producers, and here is just such an example that rivals and even surpasses several of its pricier cellarmates with respect to balance, fruity depth and real varietal beauty. 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.

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.

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.

2013 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

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.

2014 Lewis Cellars Napa Valley Syrah

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.

Sweet floral notes round out a Pinot that is understated and silky. This is a rare appellation-level Pinot that could use another few years in bottle to fully flesh out.

Best from 2020 through 2030. (JL, Web-2017)" 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.

Alexander Valley has been producing more and more top Cabernets and deserves certainly to be considered up there with some of the best AVAs in Napa. This opaque purple wine has a beautiful nose of blueberry, blackberry, licorice and earthy undertones. Stunningly full-proportioned the wine has terrific depth of fruit and richness. Scherrer was telling me the Cabernet was planted on the old St. George rootstock that was favored and not prone to the Phylloxera scourge that took out all of the AXR rootstoc ...Read More »

2014 Pine Ridge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The bottled 2014s include the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, which is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot. A classic much in keeping with the vintage characteristics, this charmer is loaded with sweet black and red currant fruit, some spice box, earth, and subtle oak. It is up-front, irresistible, full-bodied and layered with fruit and glycerin. The finish displays sweet tannin and the wine can be drunk now or cellared between 15-20 years. I tasted an array of wines from Pine Ridge. My notes on some late-release 2013s are followed by a bevy of ...Read More »

From the winery: "Our 2012 Soda Canyon Ranch Merlot from the Napa Valley combines the refinement of old world winemaking with the expressiveness and generosity of California fruit.

2014 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay is light gold-colored with a greenish hue and beautiful, fresh tropical fruit flavors of pineapple, pear, honeysuckle and a touch of citrus. 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. Does anyone care if Demi Moore is still drinking Pahlmeyer Chardonnay? (RP)" (12/2015) 90-92 points Vinous: "Pahlmeyer's 2014 Chardonnay is bright and nicely focused in the glass. Lemon oil, flowers, mint, spices and anise are all l ...Read More »

2014 Lewis Cellars "Alec's Blend" Napa Valley Red Blend

Randy and Debbie Lewis established their small family winery in Napa back in 1992. Lewis Cellars makes some of K&L's favorite Napa wines--they're always delicious, polished and fundamentally drinkable. This is a powerful yet balanced blend of Syrah 60%, Merlot 34% and Cabernet 6%. The winemaker compares this year's cuvée to a first-year college student, saying, "Asserting his independence through explosively ripe blackberry and huckleberry fruits, there's also kirsch-like cherry cola, spicy oak, supple tannin and a trace of s'mores that's closer to home....

2014 Nickel & Nickel "Bear Flat" Oak Knoll District Merlot

The 2014 Bear Flat Merlot combines the berry fruits from a warm region with the savory notes of a cooler growing area. Aromas of plum, spice, and forest floor lead into flavors of cedar, herbs, and black olive. A sumptuous and plush, this merlot is ready to enjoy or will improve with a few years of cellaring.

2012 Paradigm Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

This brand-new release from Napa Valley stalwart Paradigm is bold and beautiful. It's 96% Cab, with a touch of Merlot and Petit Verdot to round out the blend. Though it has yet to be reviewed, the winemaker (Heidi Peterson Barrett--of Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, etc.) is raving about it: "My first comment on tasting this wine is 'wow!' It's delicious; our flagship wine at Paradigm and it delivers. Dense, deep, ripe aromas of blackberry and black cherry-like fruit layered with caramel and toastiness from a nice mix of French Oak barrels. Flavors coat th... Read More »
