2012 Gundlach Bundschu "Mountain Cuvée" Sonoma County Red Blend

2013 Louis M. Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley-based Louis M. Martini has always had a focus on Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon, not least because Mr. Martini himself developed the Monte Rosso vineyard there in the 1930s. This county-wide blend, which Robert Parker Jr. has called "Always one of the best buys in Cabernet Sauvignon" (Wine Advocate, 10/2014), is generally a blend of Dry Creek Valley vineyards like Frei Ranch with Alexander Valley fruit.

2011 Sbragia "Monte Rosso" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $55)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sbragia continues to purchase fruit from the Gallo Family-owned Monte Rosso Vineyard, one of the most iconic sites in Sonoma. The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Rosso Vineyard is one of the stars of this much maligned, irregular vintage. Its deep, inky/blue/purple color is accompanied by scents of loamy soil, licorice, roasted herbs, blackcurrants and blackberries.

Chocolatey cassis notes intermixed with incense, licorice, and a hint of black olive are present in this wine. When it hits the palate, it comes across as very Pomerol-like, with lushness, full body, and opulence. The tannins are sweet, the pH high, and the wine gorgeously full, pure, dense, and long.

A profound effort, with 55% of it coming from Hillsides in Alexander Valley, 31% from Knights Valley and the balance from Chalk Hill, the wine shows great minerality, oodles of cr?me de cassis fruit, incense, licorice, crushed rock, and a provocative full-throttle mouthfeel. A wine of great intensity, purity and equilibrium, this definitely begs for 4-7 years of bottle aging and should drink well for at least 30+ years.
