2013 Beringer Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $25)

91 points Wine & Spirits: "For all its plumpness, this feels sophisticated, its sense of fatness coming from abundant, perfectly ripe tannins rather than jammy, overripe fruit. Its clean, dark berry flavors are harmonious and lasting, the structure seeming at one moment supple and easy, at the next more deep and stony. Give it another five years in the bottle before pouring it with a standing rib roast." (2/2016) 90 points Vinous: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley is terrific...

2012 Calluna "Cuvee 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 ...Read More »

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Complex scents of dried cherry, redcurrant, tobacco and musky herbs, with a suave mineral underpinning; smells like a Saint-Emilion from graves soil. Light in body but packing a serious punch, offering bitter cherry and red berry skin flavors along with sweet tobacco and dark chocolate qualities. The mineral note repeats on the finish, which is impressively focused and very persistent. (ST)" (6/2009) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The second wine, from lots culled out from Les Pavots, is called L’Esprit des Pavots. The 2006 L’Esprit (45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 17% Ca ...Read More »

2005 Laurel Glen Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby color. Strikingly seductive, expressive bouquet offers kirsch, blackcurrant, raspberry and fresh floral scents. Suave and silky, offering deep but energetic red and dark fruit flavors and terrific mineral lift. Maintains its focus through the long, sappy finish. Really lovely wine, with the depth and balance to reward extending cellaring." (6/2008)

1988 Arrowood Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

According to the Wine Spectator: "Offers more up-front fruitiness than most 1988s, but shares the tannic dryness of the vintage on the finish. In between, there's plenty of ripe plum, black cherry, anise and cedary notes that stay focused.--1988 California Cabernet Retrospective." (11/98)

1993 Peter Michael "Les Pavots" Knights Valley Proprietary Red

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1993 Les Pavots, another impressive wine from a vintage that has plenty of skeptics in the West Coast press, reveals a dense, ruby/purple color, and a complex nose of smoke, spice, toast, and black fruits. Medium to full-bodied, with an inner-core of sweet, rich fruit, outstanding purity, and a powerful yet elegant personality, this layered, multi-dimensional wine should drink well young, but keep for 20+ years. The blend for Peter Michael's Les Pavots proprietary red wine varies year to year, but the composition usually includes at least 70% Caberne ...Read More »

2005 Peter Michael "L'Esprit des Pavots" Knights Valley Bordeaux Blend

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full, deep ruby-red. Wilder aromas of plum, flint and smoky oak, with a cooler suggestion of menthol. Sweeter on first blush than the Pavots but with less depth to the flavors of cherry and brown spices. Finishes broad and rich, but with rougher tannins than the suaver flagship Bordeaux blend. (ST)" (6/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The second wine, which is called L'Esprit des Pavots, is a noteworthy wine. The 2005 (73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) shows chocolatey espresso notes, loads of berry fruit, medium body, and a soft, head ...Read More »
