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 »

2013 Paradigm Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Grown on Paradigm's Oakville estate, Paradigm has been made by Heidi Peterson Barrett since its first vintage in 1991.

The 2013 is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Heidi Peterson Barrett raves about it: "Another great vintage with the 2013 for Napa Valley Cab!

Full to medium body, solid core of fruit and a gorgeous finish. Compacted and refined. Better in 2019 but already fantastic. Best wine ever from here?"

2014 Shafer "One Point Five" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five offers up scents of lavender, cloves, menthol, licorice, spice and graphite. Savory, delineated and tightly wound, the 2014 is a picture perfect example of the vintage. Winemaker Elias Fernandez adds that the drought was more severe in 2014 than it was in 2013. This is another strong showing from Shafer." (12/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five shows beautiful purity, not the weight, profound depth and structure of the 2013, but it is still medium to full-bodied, elegant, graceful and a classic exampl ...Read More »

Raspberry jam, spices and wild flowers all flesh out in the glass. The addition of 11% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot gives the J. Davies an extra kick of mid-palate juiciness and overall intensity.

Blood orange, pomegranate, succulent red cherry, mint and white pepper overtones give the 2014 its aromatic lift and palate presence.

This Merlot-dominated blend reminds us why Duckhorn earned its reputation as one of California's preminent sources for Merlot. The 2013 vintage had great weather and was perfect for making a rich, seamless, structured wine. Winemaker notes: "The 2013 growing season yielded a riveting expression of Three Palms Vineyard Merlot, with a rich entry and pure and polished flavors of cherry, cassis, pomegranate, and blackberry.

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.

A beauty, with mulberry, blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, graphite and spice, the wine cuts a broad swath across the palate with no hard edges.

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Very ripe, very rich and incisively varietal with an uncanny sense of finesse given its fruity amplitude and considerable size, Duckhorn's Monitor Ledge bottling is a broad, mouthfilling Cabernet Sauvignon that is as continuous as it is wonderfully deep and defined. It is carefully structured and fairly supple in feel for the young wine that it is, and, while its uncommonly well-polished tannins impart nary so much as a hint of toughness, it is a wine that should be given at least a half-dozen years of age in which to fully develop even if it ...Read More »

2000 Arietta "H Block Hudson" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2000 Arietta (equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc) tastes like an over-sized, phenomenal Cheval Blanc. It has blossomed beautifully since I tasted it last year. A dense purple color is followed by scents of cocoa, underbrush, chocolaty black cherry and black currant fruit, minerals, truffles, and graphite. A big, thick, chewy, tremendously long, intense, well-balanced red, I would love to taste it alongside the 2000 Cheval Blanc. It should hit its prime in 3-4 years, and last for two decades.

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Darioush Cabernets are among the richest, deepest, and tastiest that are produced in these parts, and that might be good enough on its own to make them likeable, but the reason why they have been so very popular is that they also have carried plenty of juicy, well-focused varietal fruit. And, this wine is not only clearly made in the winery style, but it is among their most impressive yet. Its generous aromas of black cherry, cola and graphite are lifted by lashings of creamy oak, and its full-bodied sense on the palate is supple to start wit ...Read More »

2014 DuMol "Ryan - Widdoes Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard has a rather subdued, earthy nose of fungi and fallen leaves over red and black cherries and a waft of lavender. The medium to full-bodied palate is built like a brick house with a solid frame of grainy tannins and lively acid holding the muscular fruit together beautifully, and texturing the long, earthy finish. It needs another 1-2 years in bottle and should cellar for 12+ years thereafter.

Sweet, rich and lush, but with excellent acidity giving definition and an exhilarating sappy quality to the middle palate. A hint of salinity is perfectly countered by sweet red fruits. Superb depth and lift on the spicy back end, with the tannins fully coated by fruit. I loved the pungent aromatic qualities of Morlet's 2011 pinots but these 2012s will probably be longer-lived.

2008 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

It is so young that it cannot only get better with time in bottle, but we admit that its no-holds-barred richness and accessible style makes near-term resistance next to impossible."

It is, as are its mates, a full and fleshy Pinot with richness to spare, and it will never be accused of being shy or retiring, but neither is it at all overdone in any way and it is remarkably well-composed for the ample wine that it is.

Blueberries, black currants, graphite, licorice and tar burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its hugely appealing personality.

(5/2014) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Lush ripe plum, licorice and toasty oak form a triangle of flavor in this blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 6% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The tannins are undoubtedly present yet soft. Much of the fruit comes from cool Coombsville, with a slight floral characteristic popping up from the midpalate through to the finish. (VB)" (10/2014) Wine Spectator: "The core fruit flavors are ...Read More »

2013 Anderson's Conn Valley "Estate Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is the least expressive of these 2013s, likely the result of its recent bottling. Lavender, black cherries, cloves, menthol, orange peel and dark spices grace the explosive, powerful finish. Dark and enticing, but also quite reticent, the 2013 has a lot to say, but not just yet. The deep, inky finish gives the 2013 much of its virile personality. 93+ (AG)" (9/2015)

2014 Arnot Roberts Que Syrah Vineyard Syrah

95 points Vinous: "The 2014 Que Syrah Vineyard is another deep, super-intense Syrah. Specifically, the interplay of varietal aromatics and deep, pliant fruit - rare to see in the same site - play off each other in a wine that dazzles from start to finish. Inky blue/purplish fruit, spices, mint, lavender and dark spices add shades of nuance on the long, beautifully persistent finish. Like all the Arnot-Roberts Syrahs, the Que Syrah was done with 100% whole clusters and aged in neutral oak. Childhood friends Duncan Arnot and Nathan Roberts have turned out a spectacular set o ...Read More »

2012 Rhys "Bearwallow Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Coming from Anderson Valley in California's North Coast, the 2012 Pinot Noir Bearwallow Vineyard is distinctly different than the Santa Cruz Mountain releases. Full, layered and supple, with possibly more mid-palate flesh than the slightly more racy 2012s from further south, this beauty gives up lovely notes of passion fruits, wild herbs (thyme, rosemary, lavender), eucalyptus and spice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multi-dimensional on the palate, with a brilliant texture, this impeccably balanced beauty will age gracefully for another decade or m ...Read More »

2014 DuMol "Eddie's Patch - Greywacke Vineyard" Russian River Valley Syrah

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* DuMOL is hitting on all cylinders these days, and this Syrah, often a CGCW favorite, also rushes to the very top of the category with its smoky, meaty varietal adjuncts and its clear, keenly focused blackberry fruit aromas supported by a fair dollop of toasty oak. Taking advantage of a minerally streak, the wine gains complexity and longevity through flavors that are at once high in volume and concentration yet are still somewhat tight and loaded with promise for great growth as its tannins round out." (11/2016) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the ...Read More »

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. (RP)" (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 ...Read More »

2008 Cain "Concept-The Benchlands" 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". It is sourced from the eastern and western "b... Read More »

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 »
