2012 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour - Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is BV’s flagship wine. It boasts sweet notes of charcoal, burning embers, vanillin, tar and copious quantities of blackcurrant fruit. In keeping with this generously endowed vintage, the wine is supple, full-bodied, multidimensional and opulent. It will drink beautifully young and last for 20-25 years.

2012 J. Davies Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 J. Davies Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon from their estate on Diamond Mountain is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Malbec. A beauty, with raspberry, blueberry and even blacker fruits, the wine has a lusciousness, with silky tannins and real charm. If Châteaux Margaux made wine on Diamond Mountain it might well taste like this beauty. This is first-growth all the way: beautiful purity, symmetry, harmony and an ethereal lightness in spite of the richness and intensity. This is quite an achievement and already drinkable, but should continue to evolve ...Read More »

2012 Shafer "Relentless" Napa Valley Syrah

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Syrah Relentless, which has not yet been bottled, is a blend of 89% Syrah and 11% Petite Sirah. In keeping with this amazing year, it’s full-bodied, juicy, succulent, flamboyant, with blueberry and blackberry fruit galore, lots of glycerin and a massive mouthfeel, but no heaviness or astringency characterize this stunning wine. This should turn out to be a great, great Rhône Ranger when released in a year or so."

2012 Cade Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

92-94 points Vinous: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Estate is a model of pure sensuality. Bright red berries, rose petals, mint, anise and crushed rocks give the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Howell Mountain much of its brightness and lift. Winemaker Danielle Cyrot has done a wonderful job with her inaugural vintage at Cade. The 2012 Estate is layered, sumptuous and beautiful.

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.

Lots of blackcurrant fruit, tart acids, and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel are impressive in this young, vibrant, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon, that should easily stand the test of two decades of cellaring. The color is saturated ruby/purple, and the wine is still relatively tight. I suggest several years of bottle age for potential owners.

Definitely a modern-style Napa Cab." (2/2000) Decanter: "Hugely classy nose, with delicate, off-ripe jam and chocolate aromas.

Production is 496 cases. It boasts an ethereal, DRC-like perfume of forest floor, black raspberries, spring flowers, and red and black fruits, a medium to full-bodied, supple mouthfeel, good acidity and a broad, savory, lush personality.

2012 Kathryn Kennedy "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

From the winery: "After a series of cool and cold vintages, 2012 brought a warm and more typical growing season. The larger than normal crop load served only to usher a slow and long ripening. This new vintage surprises in its appeal as current drinking big scale Cabernet. It has a spectatular mouthfeel with a dense core of fruit and soil flavors all carried by an “on target” balance.

2009 Mayacamas Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

Originally built in 1889, Mayacamas is one of the Napa Valley’s oldest wineries. A long road winds up Mount Veeder to the historic stone winery and its estate vineyards, located at elevations between 1,800 and 2,400 feet above sea level. Previously owned by the family (from 1968 to 2013), the winery has been known for making lean, balanced, long-aging wines. Many vintages need a decade or more of cellaring to really find their greatness. These wines bring one back to the old days of California wine, when wines were allowed to age gracefully and develop i... Read More »

Hazelnut, honey, tropical fruit and butter open up in a Chardonnay endowed with lovely focus and delineation throughout. Smoke, slate and green orchard fruit add brightness on the close.

2012 Nickel & Nickel "C.C. Ranch" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon C.C. Ranch is from the Rutherford sector over near the Silverado Trail. The color is opaque purple – slightly darker than the Hayne or the John C. Sullenger. Very concentrated, with almost a confit of black cherries, blackberries and dusty earthiness underlying the fruit, this profile is not surprising as this vineyard is grown in gravelly, loamy soils. With a full-bodied mouthfeel, super density and richness, I found it a very youthful, vibrant, backward and foreboding style. This should be very long-lived, but require 4-5 ye ...Read More »

Even with its considerable oiliness and viscosity, the 2009 retains a gorgeous sense of energy. My impression is that the 2009 is likely to age at a slightly faster pace than some of the surrounding vintages, but in exchange it will drink well with minimal cellaring.

2007 Cain "Concept-The Benchlands" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

You won't find any reviews for Cain's current releases, since the winery stopped sending their offerings out to the critics in the early 2000s.

2012 Nickel & Nickel "Sori Bricco" Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

High in the hills of Diamond Mountain, Sori Bricco spans a wide range of hillsides, with different sun exposures resulting in separate harvest dates across the ranch. The soil is composed of a sandy, gravelly loam and the vines tend to be very small as they struggle against the slopes. The climate is very warm in the early spring and these vines are amongst the first to bud out each year.

2012 Nickel & Nickel "Rock Cairn Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Vineyard notes from Nickel & Nickel: "Planted in 1984, Rock Cairn lies near the southern edge of the Oakville appellation, east of Highway 29 and north of the town of Yountville.

2003 Pride Mountain Vineyards "Reserve" Sonoma/Napa Counties Claret
Bid on this bottle of 2003 Pride Mountain Vineyards "Reserve" Sonoma/Napa Counties Claret (97RP, 95WE, 93CG, 93ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Reserve Claret is a blend of 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon that achieved 14.4% alcohol. An exquisite candidate for wine of the vintage, it comes from a vineyard high on the summit of Spring Mountain. Eighty-three percent of the fruit comes from Sonoma and the rest from Napa County as the vineyard sits astride the county lines. Its dark plum/garnet color reveals a slight lightening at the edge. A beautiful nose of cedarwood, forest floor, red and black currants, kirsch and plum is followed by a full-bodied wine with great freshness, a rich, textured mouthfeel and sensational concentration with no heaviness. This is an uplifting, quintessential mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that outperforms the vintage. Just entering its plateau of full maturity, it can be drunk now and over the next decade.
