2014 Lewis Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2014 Lewis Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Wine Spectator: "A creamy textured charmer, infused with mocha and dark berry flavors and offering density and complexity, this builds on tiers of jazzy oak, polished currant and blackberry. Ends with rounded tannins that let the flavors glide on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2030." (2/2017) 91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* While neither of the Lewis brace of Cabernets is the picture of restraint and both are beholden to near over-the-top ripeness, they nonetheless succeed on the strength of their fruity depth. This, the less pricey of the pair, is by small degrees the deeper and slightly ...Read More »

2013 Dominus "Napanook" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

97 points James Suckling: "Fabulous nose of mushrooms, like porcini, with black truffle that turns to citrus fruits such as orange and tangerine. Some vine bark. Full-bodied yet wonderfully firm and formed with refined and polished tannins. Super definition. Drink in 2018, but wonderful to experience." (1/2015) 95 points Vinous: "Just as magnificent from bottle as it was in barrel, the 2013 Napanook is dense, powerful and brooding, with searing intensity and extraordinary balance. Lavender, plums, violets, licorice and smoke are some of the signatures, but the 2013 exudes finesse, power and intensity. ...Read More »

2011 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2011 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Silver Oak's 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was carefully and selectively harvested over more than a month at the end of the cool 2011 growing season. Blended with 14.5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 0.5% Malbec, the varietal composition was determined early in the aging process and the blended lots were then aged in new American oak barrels for two full years.

2012 Kathryn Kennedy "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "A thoroughly elegant, serious and yet immensely enjoyable wine that stays lively many days after opening, this bottling from a regional icon shows dried violets, dried strawberry, crushed pepper and touches of leather and soy on the wondrous nose. Lithe black plum and elderberry fruits ride along a tight but forgiving tannic structure, with support from crushed gravel, asphalt, potpourri, sandalwood and cedar flavors."

All in harmony. Drink in 2019." (1/2016) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine employs 73% Spottswoode Estate Vineyard fruit, but also ventures to other sites, including Young Inglewood, Oakville Ranch and Darms Lane. Dusty cedar, blackberry and pencil shavings dot a structured, classically stylized landscape, additionally seasoned in black pepper and clove. It has length for miles; enjoy best 2023 through 2033."

2014 Turnbull "Reserve" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve from Oakville shows plenty of blackberry, cassis, graphite, licorice, an opaque purple color, sweet blue and black fruits with ripe tannin and a nice, well-delineated full-bodied mouthfeel. Like most 2014s, it is already showing plenty of charm and fruit, but this has slightly more structure than many of them and would probably benefit from several years of bottle age, and keep for 20 or more years. 92+ points.

An ethereal and classically proportioned Cabernet which will age effortlessly thanks to its flawless balance, likely putting on weight with bottle age. Terrific stuff; not to be missed."

Gloriously pure notes of mulberry, graphite, blackberry and blueberry soar from the glass and cascade over the palate. The wine is full-bodied, there is nary a hard edge to be found in this opulent, velvety texture, pure, rich, stunning Cabernet Sauvignon. It finishes impressively, and the wine is capable of lasting 15-20 years, although it’s certainly accessible now. (RP)" (12/2015) 93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Cabe ...Read More »

2014 Paul Hobbs "Richard Dinner" Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay

Both should drink well for 7-10 years. Paul Hobbs has emerged as one of the great success stories in Northern California. He’s an international consultant known for his outstanding work in Argentina. He is also now involved in a joint venture in the Finger Lakes region of New York, so hopefully we can anticipate some interesting Rieslings and possibly Grüner Velt ...Read More »

1994 Peju "H.B. Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $110)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Displays a lot of complex elements, showing an array of cedar, spice, currant, black cherry and plum flavors, picking up sage and tarry notes on the finish. Rich and concentrated..." (10/1997) K&L Notes: This is one heck of a bottle of wine! Peju Province was chosen the top 'Artisan Winery of the Year' by Wine & Spirits. This accolade is just one of a long list of wine honors accorded to this relative newcomer in Napa Valley's famed Rutherford Bench area.

2011 Kosta Browne Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* We have found it not all that uncommon for a Pinot producer's appellation bottlings to equal or even surpass some of its single-vineyard examples, and this very deep and carefully constructed effort gives its pricier partners a good run for their money. It is long on ripe-cherry fruit and accented with bright, raspberry-like notes, and it is perked up by neatly placed acidity from first sip to finish. It will keep very well by dint of its exemplary balance, yet it is so accessible and outgoing now that early drinking is a wholly guilt-free pr ...Read More »

2013 Amici "Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points James Suckling: "A bright and aromatic red with mint, dark blueberry, and flower. Full body, firm and silky tannins; very tight and refined. A beautiful and approachable wine now but will certainly improve with age. Consistently excellent. Better in 2018." (6/2016) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve sports a black label and has more concentration and richness. This is well-balanced with sweet, well-integrated tannins, loads of crème de cassis, full-bodied and an approachability that gives it drinkability now as well as over the next 15-20 years. (RP)" (12/2015) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This well-ma ...Read More »

2003 Turley "Hayne" Napa Valley Zinfandel

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most revered Zinfandel in the Turley portfolio, the 2003 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard (500 cases; 16.5% alcohol) is again a prodigious Zinfandel and represents the essence of this varietal. Outrageously rich, full-bodied, dense, and multilayered, with a dark ruby/purple color (the most saturated color of all the Zinfandels), it boasts aromas and flavors of raspberries, black cherries, cassis, licorice, pepper, and loamy soil notes. The finish lasts for 45+ seconds. It is a sensational Zinfandel, and based on all the vintages produced by Turley to date, c ...Read More »

2007 Schramsberg "J. Schram" North Coast Sparkling Wine

96 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This extraordinarily deep, explicitly champenized offering is a study in contrasts when it is compared to Schramberg's 2007 Reserve, for, while both are nearing their tenth anniversaries, this one shows its autolysis in a more refined light and wears its age with more elegance. It is rife with crème brûlée richness but has retained a subtle, but very sure sense of slightly juicy fruit that has not faded with time. It is a complete and compelling package that reveals more and more with each sip, and it ranks among the very best sparkling wines to be made ...Read More »

2013 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir (1.5L)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Red-cherry and strawberry aromas meld with rich fruit and warm baking-spice flavors to make this full-bodied wine hard to resist. The style is in the ripe, pastry shop mode, and soft tannins and acidity complete the picture. (JG)" (8/2016)

2014 Kosta Browne "One Sixteen" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

The marine influence that follows the Russian River inland from the Pacific coast is a powerful attribute of this region. The fog helps keep nights cool and offers vines a break from daytime temperatures. The famous Chardonnay vineyards that they work with for this wine are from the the coolest parts of the Russian River Valley. Here, fruit is allowed to mature a little more gracefully on the vine, which they find offers them more intensely focused flavors and generous natural acidity. Their direction for this vintage was driven by a desire to explore t... Read More »

2012 Mt. Brave Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The star of the Mt Brave trio of new releases is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. There are nearly 5,800 cases of this fairly priced Cabernet. Blueberry, licorice, beef blood, tobacco leaf and forest floor aromas soar from the glass of this ripe, full-bodied, opulent wine. A blend of 87.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5.5% Merlot and the rest tiny quantities of Cabernet Franc and Malbec, it was aged in 81% new French oak. The oak component is well-concealed behind the extravagant fruit. (RP)" (10/2014) 92 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is the most overt and struct ...Read More »
