2012 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $140) Top Pick!
2012 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $140)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Revealing the great blending skills of Beringer’s winemaking team, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a winner. Having purchased Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well. The 1991, one of the great successes of that vintage, is still aging beautifully at nearly 25 years of age. The sensational 2012 (10,000 cases) boasts an opaque purple color along with abundant aromas of charcoal, burning embers, creme de cassis, chocolate, blackberries and licorice. The long, complex, compelling, full-bodied texture along ...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. In keeping with Silver Oak's practice of releasing the wine only when it is ready to drink, the bottles were then aged an additional two years before release. From the winery... Read More »

2014 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1L)

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 2014 has not yet been professionally reviewed. It's also been a 90-and-better hit lately with Robert Parker, who recently reaffirmed his praise for the winery in Wine Advocate: "I am old enough to remember Chuck Wagner and his father, who I first met at Caymus in the late seventies.

2008 Cain "Concept" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Jancis Robinson: "Quite a departure from the fruit-centric Napa norm. Roasted coffee, a tiny bit of herbal character. Savoury and structural. Good restraint within an extrovert idiom. (RH)" (2/2013) Wine Spectator: "Shows a meaty, peppery side of Cabernet, rich and extracted, offering dried dark berry and fresh-turned earth. A solid effort with chewy, leathery tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020. (JL)" (11/2012) K&L Notes: Cain "Concept" is vinified exactly like their signature bottling, Cain "Five".

2013 Corison Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Vinous: "A deep, inky wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is endowed with serious depth. Here the flavors are unusually dark and intense, with plenty of blue and black stone fruits. Graphite, cloves and licorice contribute to an overall impression of gravitas. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet needs time in bottle to truly shine. Hints of violet, lavender and plum add the final shades of nuance. All of the signatures of the vintage come through beautifully. The translucent, mineral-laced finish is especially appealing. Frankly, it's hard to ...Read More »

2014 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

It is full and somewhat supple with neatly placed tannins providing a nice bit of grip now as well as the framework for age, and, given the wine's obvious depth and careful structure, it is reasonable to expect it will evolve and gain in grace for a good half-decade or more."

1994 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley reveals a provocative nose of tobacco, black cherries, cloves, fruitcake, and spice. Some plum and raspberry fruit also emerges on the palate. This is a hedonistic, sexy, seductive, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with low acidity, and loads of toasty oak." (12/1997) 89 points Wine Spectator: "Combines ripe, rich, complex fruit with a sense of finesse and harmony. The core of anise, currant, sage and cedar unfolds to reveal more depth and complexity. Finishes with a long, satisfying aftertaste." (10/1998) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red-ruby color. Black cherry, ...Read More »

1994 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

From a producer with a superb track record with Cabernet. (JL)" (5/1997) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cabernet is king at Caymus.

A crystalline, pure Pinot, the 2010 is loaded with energy and brightness. Though medium in body, the 2010 is all about vibrancy and nuance. This is a terrific entry-level Pinot from Kosta-Browne.

2005 Pride Mountain Napa-Sonoma Counties Cabernet Sauvignon

Round, plump, and hedonistic, it should drink well for a decade. (RP)" (12/2007) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A big, juicy young Cab that impresses for sheer flashiness, yet needs some time for its edges to soften.

2014 Paul Hobbs "Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Pinot Noir

95 points Vinous: "The Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard, a wine that can at times be a bit rustic, is anything but that in 2014. Creamy and voluptuous, the Hyde is also endowed with tremendous thrust. Dark red cherry jam, graphite, herbs, smoke, tar and licorice are all pushed forward. In the end, nothing really sticks out, rather it is the wine's exceptional balance that is most impressive. Paul Hobbs describes 2013 as a consistently warm, dry year but without excesses. I remember stopping by in January of that year, and being quite surprised when Hobbs told me he was likely to s ...Read More »

The tannins are pleasantly grainy, holding the flavors on the palate. Best from 2015 through 2026. (JL)" (10/2015) K&L Notes: Howell Mountain was Napa’s first sub-AVA, and for good reason. The terroir is dramatic, unique, and powerful. Lying between 1,600 and 1,800 feet in elevation, Ladera Vineyards sits above the Napa Valley fog, its grapes cooled instead by the high elevation.

Ample, rich and also structured, the Jensen is another wine that needs at least a few more years in bottle. The flavors are especially dark and intense this year, while the huge, resonant finish adds to the wine's considerable appeal.

Offers impressive texture for the vintage, but comes across as distinctly less sweet than the Howell Mountain bottling. Finishes with very good length and ripe, fairly substantial tannins that grew slightly dry with aeration."

2000 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color in addition to a big, cocoa-scented nose, a sweet entry on the palate, medium body, and a short, abrupt finish. A modest success for the vintage, it is a friendly, easy-to-drink effort... (RP)" (12/2003) Wine Spectator: "Starts out with creamy, milk chocolaty oak leading to a core of currant and plum-flavored fruit, offering richness, depth and complexity, finishing with a plush, concentrated aftertaste. Those who like well-oaked Cabernets will find this most appealing. (JL)" (9/2004)

2013 Snowden "Brothers Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard is ample with sweet tannin and notes of licorice, blackcurrants, graphite and earth. It is dense, powerful, yet at the same time well-balanced and pure, and exceptionally well-crafted. Give it several years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10-20 years." (10/2015) 94 points Vinous: "Explosive and powerful to the core, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Brothers presents dark tonalities of fruit along with distinctly savory and mineral notes. Grilled herbs, smoke, lavender and pencil shavings add nuance. The Brothers is d ...Read More »

2001 Etude Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sweet aromas of flowers, blueberries, black currants, licorice and smoky oak emerge from this full-bodied, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon. While close to full maturity, it should continue to provide enjoyment for 12-15 more years. Full-bodied, vibrant and vigorously concentrated with abundant texture and richness, this beautiful 2001 is still an adolescent. (RP)" (6/2011) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A bold, rich, concetrated wine with lots of flavor dimensions and excellent structure. Dense and complex, with currant, anise, cedar and fresh earth flavors, it picks up chocolate and mocha o ...Read More »

1992 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What makes the 1992 California Cabernet Sauvignon vintage so incredible is that one of its hallmarks is the voluptuous, opulent, and succulent nature of the fruit. In Dunn's offerings, that translates into wines that are massive and rich, but with sweeter, more expansive, chewy mid-palates. Both of these Cabernets are 20-30 year wines, but I suspect the softer Napa cuvee will be drinkable in 5-7 years." (10/1995) Wine Spectator: "Young and grapey, a high-extract style with rich currant, mineral, leather and herb flavors. Finishes with a tannic wallop. Cellar." (11/1995)

2012 Forman Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Forman Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the relaxed, easygoing personality of the year. Soft, supple and voluptuous, the 2012 is a great choice for drinking while some of the more structured vintages rest comfortably in the cellar. Sweet mocha and spice notes wrap around the silky, seamless finish. 94+ (AG)" (12/2014) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(15% alcohol): Good bright red. Reticent but pure aromas of raspberry, cherry, pomegranate, licorice, mint and sexy oak (60% new). Conveys lovely balance and obvious sweet fruit and licorice flavors but comes across as very closed today, with i ...Read More »

1996 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Merlot (3,000 cases) is a worthy rival. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc tips the scales at a heady 14.6% alcohol. Could it be better than the 1997? The wine is opaque black/purple-colored, with a knock-out nose of plums, black cherries, chocolate, raspberries, licorice, and toasty new oak. Viscous in the mouth, with superb purity, this is a riveting, mind-boggling Merlot that sets a new reference point for this varietal in California. It can be drunk now, but has the potential to last for 15 or more ...Read More »

2013 L'Aventure "Côte a Côte Estate" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 40% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache and 30% Syrah, the 2013 Cote a Cote is a classic Rhone blend from Paso that has lots of blackberry, cassis, ground pepper and damp earth aromatics, full-bodied richness and both good acidity and tannic grip. Showing more complex floral characteristics and chalky minerality with time in the glass, it can be enjoyed now or cellared for a decade. While the 2013s are small step back from Stephan’s insanely good 2012s, they’re still near the top of the hierarchy in Paso Robles. I tasted the 2014s from barrel and they mig ...Read More »

2014 Spottswoode Napa/Sonoma Counties Sauvignon Blanc (1.5L)

From the producer: "Our Sauvignon Blanc is quintessentially Californian, with a beautiful ripeness balanced with wonderful structure and acidity. Grapes from a handful of carefully selected vineyards join our Spottswoode Estate fruit in the composition of this wine. A combination of small, stainless barrels, French oak, and concrete, egg-shaped cuves are utilized in fermentation. This technique results in a complex, rich, and vibrant wine that stands well on its own, pairs beautifully with food, and is further enhanced with a bit of cellaring. An invitin... Read More »
