2013 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2013 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2013 vintage has yet to be reviewed, but the 2012 garnered 96 points from Robert Parker: "They appear to be immune to some of winedom’s less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time." That bottling from the '12 vintage (which celebrated their 40th anniversary) was the single largest selling wine for us over the past year. Given that '13 is also an excellent vintage (a twin to '12), we expect lots of interest for this Napa benchmark.

2013 Lewis Cellars "Reserve" Napa Valley Chardonnay

The 2011 is just a touch compact, but it nevertheless has plenty of energy. An intense, powerful wine, the 2011 needs another few years in bottle for the tannins to soften.

Here, though, it is the Russian River that speaks with notable eloquence. Orange blossom, butter, new French oak, apricot pit, mint and spice notes abound.

This is a multi-dimensional, profound Chardonnay (as it often was when made by Helen Turley) from a vineyard planted with an Old Wente clone as well as the Hyde clone of Chardonnay.

2012 DuMol "Eddie's Patch" Russian River Valley Syrah (Previously $85)

95 points Antonio Galloni: "Darker tonalities of fruit emerge from the 2012 Syrah Eddie's Patch Hoppe-Kelly Vineyard. Deep and powerful, the 2012 presents a brooding, intense expression of Syrah, with plenty of dark red and blue fruit overtones. I imagine the 2012 will provide readers with a long, broad drinking window of pure pleasure. I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted at DuMol this year. Winemaker Andy Smith is no longer at Larkmead and is now solely focused on DuMol, which can only be a good thing for these wines. Many of the 2012s, the Pinots in particular, were e ...Read More »

2000 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is a medium-bodied, soft, attractive effort with plenty of herbaceousness along with notes of figs, plums, and red currants. Made in an up-front style, it begs to be drunk over the next 7-8 years." (12/2003) Wine Spectator: "Smooth and polished, with a mix of mature cedar, currant and cherry-scented fruit, framed by a dash of smoky vanilla- and coconut-shaded oak, but finishing with a complex mix of fruit and oak."

2009 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The intensely flavorful wines from Rutherford's Trailside Vineyard have been part of the Heitz range since 1989. The vineyard is flanked by the Silverado Trail on one side and Conn Creek on the other and is certified organic. Aged in oak for three and half years, the winery descibes the 2009 vintage thusly: "Opulent hues of ruby and garnet draw you headlong into the glass; rich aromas of blackberry and a hint of nutmeg invite you to stay. With just the right amount of French oak there is a subtle sweetness that lifts and enhances the dark fruit character... Read More »

2007 Paloma Spring Mountain District Merlot

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Deeply fruited, impressively filled with a very keen sense of dark, well-ripened cherries that indelibly marks it as Merlot, Paloma's latest is an especially well-balanced working that is at once very rich, refined and remarkably polished. It does show a streak of fine-grained finishing tannins, but there is nothing so coarse as to raise any worries, and the wine's fruit eases its way past a bit of last-minute astringency. As good Merlot will, this one might tempt early drinking, but it has a long life before it and should evolve for years to ...Read More »

2013 EnRoute "Les Pommiers" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

This is the sixth vintage of Les Pommiers, EnRoute's signature Pinot Noir, and it marks the earliest harvest to date. Ideal weather in the Sebastopol Hills has created a deep and complex wine, with generous tannins and a rich, royal purple hue. From the winery: "...offers explosive aromatics of pomegranate and cherry with hints of perfume, tobacco leaf, mineral, baking spices and a lovely floral note. The entry is warm and coating, followed closely by rich, layered tannins. This is perhaps the densest wine that we have produced thus far, while still exhi... Read More »

2012 Pahlmeyer "Jayson" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "From two very good vineyards-Pahlmeyer’s Wayfarer on the extreme Sonoma Coast and Hallberg in Russian River-this stellar wine is juicy, herbal and swimming in delightful acidity. With just enough concentration to give it some strength and structure, it’s a nice balance between power and finesse." (3/2015) K&L Notes: With their focus firmly on both quality and approachablility for their Jayson line of wines, the winery describes this cool-climate "...dark ruby red (Pinot Noir as) matched by intense aromas of juicy black fruit, fresh wild flowers, and hints of spicy co...
