2013 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2013 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Decanter: "Savoury notions of pine and undergrowth join lovely dark fruit on the nose, and American oak adds even more aroma by way of vanilla and coconut. The palate is juicy, full, aromatic and ripe, but there's structure to hold that lovely fruit, framing it with firm tannins and alluring perfume. Lovely, elegant and complex, combining Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drinking Window 2018 - 2035. (AK)" (6/2018) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Pure, rich and firm, with an enticing core of blackberry, black olive, dill and herb flavors, ending with a cedary oak edge. Impr ...Read More »

2016 Far Niente Napa Valley Chardonnay Top Pick!
2016 Far Niente Napa Valley Chardonnay

The noble Chardonnay grape was the first varietal cultivated and bottled by Far Niente in their modern era, beginning with the 1979 vintage. Today they still remain true to their mission of making elegant Chardonnay with bright fruit, crisp acidity and a creaminess on the palate. Winery note: "The 2016 vintage opens with bright melon, citrus blossom and honeysuckle aromatics, followed by notes of lightly toasted hazelnuts and an amazing minerality. Rounded and silky on the palate, flavors of ripe melon and citrus oil are underscored by juicy fruit and mo... Read More »

2016 Kistler Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay Top Pick!
2016 Kistler Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay

Kistler was founded in 1978 by Steve Kistler and remains a family owned & operated winery with a focus on Burgundian varietals. Kistler is considered to be one of the pioneers of the buttery, fruit-driven Chardonnays that have come to be closely associated with California. Recent trends have seen a move away from this style, however, and Kistler is beginning to experiment with making more restrained styles of Chardonnay. Winery note: "Thirty year old vines grow dry farmed in deep red volcanic ash, producing a wine with an intense sense of the mountain he... Read More »

2015 Chappellet "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2015 Chappellet "Signature" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Looking at the two releases from Chappellet, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is the larger production cuvee and sees 22 months in 50% new French oak. Its deep, inky color is followed by an incredibly pure bouquet of crème de cassis, hints of blue fruits, graphite, and cedar. With gorgeous minerality, full-bodied richness, building tannin and notable purity, it's an incredible wine, as well as a sensational value." (12/2017) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature delivers mocha, cassis and black soil notes with touches of bla ...Read More »

2015 DuMol "Chloe - Ritchie-Lorenzo Old Vines" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Chardonnay Ritchie-Lorenzo Old Vines Vineyard (it’s two-thirds from Ritchie and one-third from Lorenzo) is a big, rich, classic Russian River Chardonnay that has loads of ripe orchard fruits, honeysuckle, dried herbs/earth, and spice all soaring from the glass. It’s another impeccably balanced, pure, classic effort from this estate that does everything right."

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

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "As with the 2015, the base 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a tremendous value. Blueberries, black cherries, licorice and hints of charcoal all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, ripe, opulent red that lacks the sheer grandeur and finesse of the top cuvee, yet packs gorgeous fruit and offers a peek at the quality coming from this estate. The blend is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc aged in 50% new French oak. One of the eye-opening tastings while working on this report was the lineup from Kathryn Hall’s estate located in St. Hele ...Read More »

2015 DuMol Russian River Valley Chardonnay

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "A full dose of vibrant, young, keenly varietal Chardonnay fruit is enriched with plenty of winemaking extras here, and, while in no way overdone, the wine readily shows off its full complement of rich, toasty oak. It similarly plays to richness and is no lightweight on the palate, but it is a very well-balanced offering for its size, and two or three years in the cellar are certain to round off its few youthful angles and edges. *One Star*" (10/2017) K&L Notes: Most of the grapes for the 2015 Chardonnay were grown on Dutton Ranch in the Sonoma Coast AVA.

Succulent black cherry, plum, licorice and lavender are front and center. Silky tannins add to the wine's supple feel and overall immediacy. (AG)" (3/2017) 91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Dense and well-ripened with a good sense of heft and a Pinot that, at least for now, favors richness over finesse, this moderately full-bodied effort delivers lots of juicy, young, black cherry fruit joined to an ample complement of creamy oak.

2015 DuMol "Isobel - Charles Heintz Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

It’s medium-bodied, pure, and elegant on the palate, with a deep, earth, minerality."

2015 DuMol Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Connoisseurs Guide: "DuMOL certainly has earned its cred after years of making wines that rank near the top of the ratings list, and, while there is not a thing wrong with this bottling, it is not as deep and dramatic as its predecessors. To be sure, the top DuMOLs are vineyard designated, not its 'appellation' bottlings, but even then, this clean, fairly precise but less-than-fully-stuffed bottling focuses on specific red cherry fruit with a dollop of creamy oak for some added richness, and it has the energy to grow a little with a few years of aging."

Remarkably light on its feet for such a big wine, the 2013 offers exceptional depth and pedigree from the very first taste. Even with all of its obvious intensity, the 2013 manages to remain polished and vibrant. (AG)" (12/2016) 95 points Wine & Spirits: "This is the wine formerly known as Cask.

2015 Hyde de Villaine (HdV) "Hyde Vineyard" Chardonnay Carneros Napa

95 points Vinous: "The 2015 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is bright, pure and focused, especially within the context of the year. Winemaker Stephane Vivier did a terrific job in capturing a compelling interplay of freshness and textural richness. Lemon peel, white flowers, white orchard fruit and mint give the wine its lifted personality, but there is plenty of palate weight and depth. This is a classy, super-polished Chardonnay from Hyde de Villaine. (AG)" (1/2018)

2012 Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $73)

Delicious now but shows finesse and length. Better in 2019 but so gorgeous already." (5/2016) K&L Notes: Spring Mountain Vineyard Winery as it exists today is actually the composition of three formerly separate vineyards and wineries, known as Miravalle, Chevalier, and La Perla, that date back to the late 1800s.

2013 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is developing beautifully, unfurling in the glass with aromas of cassis, tobacco, bay laurel, dark chocolate and rich soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, multidimensional and concentrated, with wonderful savory depth, fine grained but firm tannins and a long, taut and tangy finish. While this is firmly shut down today, its potential for the future is fully evident: expect it to begin to come into its own around its tenth birthday.

2012 DuMol "Jack Robert's Run" Sonoma Coast Syrah

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "***Three Stars*** Intensely spicy with a wealth of pepper and game tagging it as Syrah in no uncertain terms yet also wonderfully deep in ongoing blackberry-like fruit, this exquisitely structured wine manages to be big, balanced and uncommonly well-polished all at the same time. It is showy in some ways and still nascent in others, and it impresses as a wine with great places to go. It would be a shame to pour it before its fifth or sixth birthday, and it should continue to grow for at least twice as long."

2014 Justin "Isosceles" Paso Robles Bordeaux Blend

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This flagship bottling is still a whopper of a wine. This vintage, a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 12% Merlot, offers barely ripe black cherry, green peppercorn and charred fennel on the nose. The palate is loaded with both savory and ripe flavors, from roasted black plums and charred beef to oregano and dill. Very complex and chalky in texture. (MK)" (4/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Shows a measure of finesse and restraint given the size, which is big and expressive, offering notes of plum, blackberry, baking spices and cedary oak.
