2013 Gundlach Bundschu "Mountain Cuvée" Sonoma County Red Blend

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This full-bodied beauty traffics in cigar, tar and chocolate, expressing a rich, robust and smoky world of goodness. With a velvety texture, it continues to impress beyond the first sip, offering both memorable length and breadth. It blends together 80% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Malbec." (2/2017) 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.

2014 Louis M. Martini Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
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 »

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.

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 »

2013 Olema Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

(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 »

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.

Blended with 10% Merlot, it finds a jolt of richness on the finish, a showcase for notions of chocolate, cherry and blackberry."

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.

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 exudes notes of eucalyptus on the nose, before unveiling big-boned but balanced tannins, with leather and cranberry notes meeting a tensile line of minerality. It finishes with a taste of mocha."

2012 Louis M. Martini "Monte Rosso Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Petit Verdot, aged 27 months in a combination of French and American oak, the wine is dense, full-bodied, with notes of dusty, loamy soil interwoven with crème de cassis, blackberry, toasty oak and hints of chocolate and espresso. This is another full-throttle effort (15.2% natural alcohol), richly layered, with moderate tannin. It is accessible now but capable of lasting 25 or more years. (RP)" (10/2015)

2013 Arrowood Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

1997 Arrowood "Réserve Spéciale" Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

(2/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale was even better. Here’s a wine coming up on 20 years of age in another 18 months, and it is still remarkably young and vigorous. Dense purple, with beautifully sweet crème de cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with incense, graphite, and a touch of oak, this was a great year for North Coast varietals, and this wine is lavishly rich, with a multi-dimensional texture and a super-intense, full-bodied finish – ju ...Read More »

2012 Anakota "Helena Dakota" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012s are the most showy and forward of the three vintages, which is not surprising, since the vintage is flamboyant and they are already three years of age. 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 Sebastiani "Cherry Block" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvognon

It has an extraordinary nose of almost super-concentrated essence of cherries and blackberries, along with some graphite and licorice. There is a touch of camphor in this multidimensional, world-class wine that is another spectacular offering from Sebastiani. The finish must last for close to a minute. This is a killer wine that can compete with the very best Cabernet Sauvignons made anywhere in the world. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring and drin ...Read More »

It delights in luxuriously bright acidity and a jammy explosion of blackberry, chocolate, clove and tobacco, the texture roundly approachable. (VB)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: Founder Patrick Campbell made a name for Laurel Glen back in the 1980s, with one of Sonoma County’s first "cult" Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

2013 Anakota "Helena Montana" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon New!
2013 Anakota "Helena Montana" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana offers chocolate, sweet black cherries, a dense purple color, great intensity and purity - a real mountain style, but with surprisingly soft tannins. It is easily a 30-year wine. The good news is that there are 520 cases of this big, boisterous, yet voluptuously textured offering from Anakota. The winemaker behind the Anakota high-elevation mountain vineyard sites in Knights Valley is no other than Pierre Seillan, the Bordelais guru who makes the fabulous wines of Vérité from the same proprietor, the Jackson fa ...Read More »

2012 Arrowood "Smothers-Remick Ridge" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Now into its fourth decade of existence, Arrowood is still a source of great pride in Sonoma County winemaking. From the winery: "The elevation of this vineyard lends itself to producing a distinctive nose, where fresh fruit and savory aromas collide to give complex aromatics of red cherry, violet, cocoa powder and leather while some spice on the palate offers notes of crushed peppercorn and cardamom. The dense structure is supported by acidity and firm tannins that will age effortlessly for many years."

1994 B.R. Cohn "Olive Hill Estate" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

Wine Spectator: "Dark, immense and firmly tannic, with lots of oak on top of that. Still, there's a lot of rich currant and berry flavor in there to stand up to the wood." (2/1997)

2010 Ravenswood "Pickberry" Sonoma Red

Connoisseurs Guide: "Given its maker's predilection for wines of real substance and size and its fairly high percentage of Cabernet , it should come as no surprise that this wine does no more than hint at typical Merlot. It is built along somewhat tighter lines, and grabby tannin presently gets in the way of its fruity expression, but it is a wine for keeping rather than one for gulping down soon, and it should be left alone for upwards of five or six years at the least."

2013 Anakota "Helena Dakota" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon New!
2013 Anakota "Helena Dakota" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota (445 cases) is absolutely magnificent. Opaque black/purple in color, it comes across like a Château Montrose from a great vintage - a very earthy St.-Estèphe-inspired wine with the essence of loamy soil and crushed rocks interwoven with blackberry and cassis fruit. Some oak makes an appearance, but it is pushed to the background by the extravagance and enormous body and extract of this wine of phenomenal intensity. This is a classic Pierre Seillan style of wine meant for 25-40 years of cellaring. The winemaker b ...Read More »
