2013 Gundlach Bundschu "Mountain Cuvée" Sonoma County Red Blend New!
2013 Gundlach Bundschu "Mountain Cuvée" Sonoma County Red Blend

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The outstanding 2013 Mountain Cuvée Proprietary Red, which is 80.4% Merlot, 17.4% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, was aged ten months in a combination of new and used oak. The good news is that there were 16,000+ cases of this outstanding wine. Dense purple in color with a big beautiful nose of black cherries, cassis, chocolate and espresso roast, this opaque, full-bodied wine has gorgeous purity, a beautifully layered texture and a heady, rich finish. This is a stunner and quite a steal in the marketplace. Gundlach Bundschu has hit home runs wit ...Read More »

2012 Lyeth Sonoma County Meritage

Wine & Spirits: "A velvety blend based on Merlot, this is simple but clean, its strawberry-red fruit lifted, the structure easy rather than gripping. It’s light enough for roast chicken." (8/2015) Wine Enthusiast: "This wine has a foundation of 57% Merlot, followed by almost equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, then smaller percents of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Perfumed, it expresses itself in tight, chewy tannins before revealing cedar, pencil shavings and cranberry in a medium-bodied package. (VB)" (11/2015) K&L Notes: Lyeth's Meritage is a blend of the five red Bordeaux varietals with 58... Read More »

2014 Louis M. Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the best values in Cabernet Sauvignon anywhere in the world remains Louis Martini’s Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County (89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and the rest Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc and other varieties) is just a beautiful wine. Dense ruby/purple with classic tobacco leaf, blackcurrant, loamy soil notes and a touch of wood spice, this wine (aged 16 months in French and American oak) has relatively modest alcohol for Cabernets these days (13.5%), and what’s even more remarkable is that there are 408,0 ...Read More »

2013 Olema Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points James Suckling: "This is dense yet fresh and lively with ripe currant, plum and dried mushroom character. Medium to full body, crisp and delicious. Real Napa at a solid price. Drink now." (6/2016) Wine Enthusiast: "This soft, simple wine, with small touches of Malbec and Petit Verdot, delivers sizable tannin atop notable acidity. Tart red currant and cherry meet cedar and a taste of toffee, allowing for a pleasantness on the palate that’s rich and ripe." (12/2016) Wine Spectator: "Fresh herb, dill and charry oak notes make this distinctive, if a bit dry and smoky. Retains an elegant mouthfeel. (Web Only—2016)" ...Read More »

2012 Calluna "Cuvée CVC" Chalk Hill Bordeaux Blend

95 points Wine & Spirits: "David Jeffrey’s estate, in the hills east of the Russian River Valley, tends to give a cool, taut expression of the Bordelaise grapes, thanks to maritime influence and the vineyard’s sandstone and shale-based soils. This Merlot-based blend includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec; in 2012, the wine’s flavors are vigorous and cohesive, with hints of black plum and mint, though the overall impression is primarily mineral, the refreshing glints of fruit completely tied to the structure. It evolves slowly over several days of air, barely l ...Read More »

2013 Amapola Creek By Richard Arrowood Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2013 Amapola Creek By Richard Arrowood Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Arrowood deserves a lot more credit than he often gets for his Cabernet Sauvignons, which are long-lived. Some of the early Château St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignons have stood the test of time, and those made under the Arrowood label, especially his Reserves, are 30+ year wines at the minimum. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, is brilliant. Notes of graphite, crème de cassis, blueberry and blackberry along with some espresso are all present in this dense, full-bodied wine with great fruit, beautiful puri ...Read More »

This is 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 12% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot from--as the name suggests--some of the winery's more gravely vineyard sources, including the famed Cherryblock, with Mountain Terraces and Bedrock. Though the 2014 has yet to be professionally reviewed, the 2013 earned 97 points from Robert Parker, who enthused about the venerable Sonoma winery's recent successes: "If you haven’t noticed the qualitative efforts by winemaker Mark Lyon and the Sebastiani team over the last decade or more, it’s time to take notice.

Full-bodied with velvety tannins, and impressive concentration, texture and length, this superb Cabernet can be drunk early in life because of its velvety opulence or cellared for two decades. I was greatly impressed with the Hidden Ridge offerings last year, and once again their current and upcoming releases merit interest.

2012 Dry Creek Vineyard "Hillside & Benchlands" Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice* This wine over-delivers a mouthful of juicy quality vis-a-vis price, combining Cab with smaller dabs of Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Savory blackberry and cassis lift the fruitiness, seasoned in savory tones of black tea and cranberry that give it an edge. Fleshy and smooth, it’s a good wine to stock up on.

This is certainly a major sleeper of the vintage and one of the more attractively priced world-class Cabernet Sauvignons coming out of California’s North Coast in this miraculous vintage for Bordeaux varietals.

2013 Arrowood Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Vinous: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley), all Knights Valley fruit in this vintage, is superb. Raspberry jam, spice, scorched earth, rose petal, cloves and new leather are some of the signatures. Knights Valley is often noted for Graves-like sense of gravel-infused minerality, naturally allied to a California expression of fruit. That is exactly what readers will find in the 2013.

2009 Vérité "La Muse" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 La Muse (86% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec; 14.5% alcohol) is a blockbuster offering complex, intense notes of Asian plum sauce, figs, black currants, white chocolate and cedar. The wine reveals an extra level of texture and richness along with full body, an unctuous texture, and a super ripeness and richness that does not go over the top. The tannins are noticeable, but well-integrated as are the new oak and acidity. This big, backstrapping, Merlot-based wine is meant for long-term cellaring.

From the producer: "The 2012 Acaibo is a very special wine to us as it represents the first vintage of our new endeavor here in California. Coming on the heels of two rather tough years, this vintage proved to be spectacular. The grapes on our estate enjoyed a long hang time with warm days and cool nights that led to a mid October pick. Through a series of tasting sessions and after much contemplation, we arrived at a final blend of 53 percent Merlot, 46 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and a sprinkling of 1 percent of Cabernet Franc to add complexity and crea...

An elegant, juicy entry with flavors of berry cobbler followed by mocha and wood spice unite, layer by layer to form a finish that is rich with structured tannins." 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petite Verdot, 5% Merlot, 5% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc.

Even as impressive, but showing more truffles, charcoal, graphite and camphor, along with blackberry and cassis, is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota (1,017 cases). This wine shows even more fruit than its sibling and is bigger, bolder and slightly broader across the palate. All these wine are highly recommended and are brilliant efforts, but will probably need coaxing and patience in th ...Read More »

2013 Kamen Moon Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

It’s a spectacular Cabernet, dense purple with notes of lead pencil shavings, blackberry, pen ink and cassis followed by a full-bodied, opulent, voluptuously textured wine with sweet tannins, stunning delineation, precision (a characteristic of 2013) and great length and richness. This is a stunner - a fabulous wine and, at this price point, very attractive. It should drink well for 25-30 years. Robert Kamen continues to turn out spectacular wines from his ...Read More »

It’s very smooth and suave on the tongue, offering deep cassis flavors and tobacco accents. Long and dry, the finish shows spicy oak, berries and espresso."

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.

Here’s a wine coming up on 20 years of age in another 18 months, and it is still remarkably young and vigorous.

(12/2008) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Deeply concentrated, rich and complex, with loamy earth, dried berry, currant and black licorice character. Firms up nicely on the finish. (Web-2011)" 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining ...Read More »

1990 Arrowood Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "Sturdy, tannic, complex and youthful, a big, extracted style with earthy currant, mineral, coffee, leather, sage and tea, firming up on the finish. Very impressive and stylish.--California Cabernet retrospective." (2/2001) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from a blend similar to that used for the 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon, the 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals spicy, cedary, cassis-scented aromas, medium-bodied flavors possessing layers of richness, adequate acidity, and a spicy, round, generous finish with noticeable soft tannin. Arrowood's emphasis on combining high quality fruit with ...Read More »

2013 Decoy Sonoma County Red Blend

Wine Spectator: "Well-focused but modest in scale, with demure notes of cherry and dill. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2025. (TF, Web-2016)" K&L Notes: From Duckhorn's second label, the classic Decoy red blend has migrated to Sonoma County for this vintage, and takes on a Sonoma character, with Zinfandel and Petite Sirah joining the usual mix of Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, et al.

1990 B.R. Cohn "Olive Hill Estate" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe, smooth, rich and complex with pretty toasty, buttery oak and layers of cherry, currant, anise and plum-tinged fruit, with flavors that stay with you from start to finish. A very pretty young wine that's approachable now but sure to gain through 1997." (11/1993)

2004 Arrowood "Reserve Speciale" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a sensational wine that is blended from different top vineyard sources in Sonoma Valley. The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale, which spent 30 months in oak before being bottled unfiltered, has a deep ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of cedar, crushed rocks, black cherry, and cassis, with some licorice and roasted herbs. The wine has fabulous intensity, a full-bodied, opulent palate, ripe tannin, and a long 50-second finish. Arrowood made just under 2,100 cases of this superb wine, and for the price, it is a relatively good value in h ...Read More »

2006 Laurel Glen Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. An expansive bouquet displays flamboyant dark berry compote, cherry-cola, licorice and dried rose. Palate-staining cassis and kirsch flavors are framed by silky tannins and gain an exotic candied floral quality with air. For such a deeply concentrated wine, this is strikingly lithe and precise. The finish strongly echoes the red fruit and floral notes and clings impressively. Patrick Campbell told me that he is paying much more attention to acidity these days 'because the last thing we need to worry about is getting enough sugar.'"

1986 B.R. Cohn "Olive Hill" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Spectator: "This has reached a fine drinking plateau, as the tannins have softened and the sweet plum and black cherry flavors have a nice black olive and herb accent. You'll still encounter firm tannins, but there's lots of richness and flavor, too." (12/1996)

1983 Kenwood "Artist Series" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "(Cellar Selection)" (11/1986) K&L Notes: The 9th release of Kenwood Vineyards’ Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon features Marcus Uzilevsky's piece "Music." A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this wine was aged for 15 months in oak. The minemaking notes indicate that "the finished wine exhibits a rich nose and flavor that are a direct result of the three varieties used in the blend. Both Merlot and Cabernet Franc add a softness to the wine and an added degree of complexity to its flavors."

1997 Ravenswood "Rancho Salina" Sonoma Valley Bordeaux Blend

90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby. Wild aromas of cherry, saddle leather, flowers and gunflint. Sweet and supple in the mouth, with notes of iris and roasted meat. Quite lush on the back end, which features very suave tannins." (6/1999) K&L Notes: Located high in the Mayacamas above the Sonoma Valley, Rancho Salina shares a fence with the venerable Monte Rosso vineyard.
