2012 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Just released! This is the "Special Selection" bottling, following on the heels of the regular 2012 Caymus Napa Valley bottling which (while celebrating the winery's 40th anniversary) was the most popular wine we've sold in 2015. We are awaiting reviews and scores on the wine, but given the quality of the 2012 vintage in Napa, and the fact that the regular bottling received 96 points from Robert Parker, it's a safe bet to assume this is going to be incredibly well received by the press. *please note: due to btls length this wine will need to ship in st...

2012 Araujo "Altagracia" Napa Valley Proprietary Red

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Araujo’s second wine, the 2012 Proprietary Red Altagracia exhibits beautiful blueberry, black raspberry and cassis fruit which reflects the purity that frequently comes from this vineyard. The tannins are soft, and the wine is lighter than its bigger sibling, but it possesses medium body, velvety tannin, and a gorgeous mouthfeel. Already approachable, this seductive, plush 2012 should age effortlessly for 10-15 years. (RP)" (10/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "The 2012 Altagracia is soft, supple and pretty.

Opus One "Overture" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Since 1993, Overture, the second wine of Opus, has been only available at the winery and a few select restaurants. This release is a blend of the 2007, 2010, and 2011 vintages. Made exactly like Opus One and sourced from the same estate vineyards, Overture is also a classic Bordeaux blend with Cabernet Sauvignon making up around 70%. Overture is made to be enjoyed upon release. We tasted this the other day, and it was delicious. It smells and tastes like Opus, but with a bit less depth and power than the first wine, making it more enjoyable now. The tann... Read More »

Freshly cut flowers, mint, spices, licorice and graphite all burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality. While some of Beaulieu's 2010s are ripe and flashy, the Georges de Latour is wonderfully fresh and alive in the glass, not to mention absolutely classic in feel.

2013 Peter Michael "La Carriere" Knights Valley Chardonnay

92-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A smaller crop than normal because of a 20-30% loss of fruit from wind damage explains the production of the 2013 Chardonnay La Carrière. However, there are still nearly 2,000 cases of the 2013 (as opposed to 2,510 of the 2012), which exhibits lots of powdered mineral, honeysuckle, and orange marmalade characteristics, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, crisp acidity and impressive purity.

This wine is still very much an infant in its evolution, and should keep for 20-30 years. Many 2012s are excessively generous, open-knit and fleshy, but this is holding a lot back.

With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshed out beautifully while retaining a classic, mid-weight profile. My sense is that the 2011 will develop along the lines of the 1994, a wine that remains distinctly floral, savory and medium in body, with less of the explosiveness of years such as 1985 or 1997, but with tons of class and style.

Orange peel, mint, butter, smoke and hazelnuts blossom in a warm, burnished Chardonnay built on pure textural depth. With time in the glass, the Hyde shows off its trademark oily, viscous texture, along with tropical-inflected notes that add an exotic flair. Hyde is always about resonance and creaminess, and there is plenty of both in the 2012. (AG)" (1/2015)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard seems to be the most laid-back, retrained and leanest of all the Chardonnays in th ...Read More »

2012 Continuum Oakville Bordeaux Blend

96 points Antonio Galloni: "Ripe, silky tannins wrap around the palate in the 2012 Continuum. Bright red cherry, plum, spice, menthol and hard candy meld together effortlessly in the glass. The 2012 captures the polished, refined side of the vintage. This is perhaps the most refined wine I have ever tasted from Continuum. The flavors are bright and focused, while the new oak has been decidedly toned down, both of which allow the personality of these breathtaking hillsides sites to shine. The 2012 is the first Continuum to be made entirely with estate grown fruit. (AG)" (12/2014) K&L Notes: Cont... Read More »

2010 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Martha's Vineyard is certinaly one of the most important Napa Valley bottlings over the last half century, and is one of the last wines to be released from any given vintage. The CCOF organically certified vineyard in Oakville has been the flagship bottling of Heitz since 1966. From the winery: "A great success in a challenging year, this wine is a true testament to the vitality of Martha's Vineyard itself. A very inviting wine with rich aromas of boysenberry, cassis and mint all tightly woven around a sweet core. On the palate this Cabernet is firm with... Read More »

2011 Spottswoode "Family Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2011 Spottswoode "Family Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points James Suckling: "A solid Spottswoode with mint, currants, berries and flowers. Sweet tobacco and rose petals. Full body with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Tangy, energetic and lively. A wine with form, tension and beauty. This is classic California. 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Better in 2016." (5/2014)94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is just as beautiful as it has always been. Silky, perfumed and impeccably balanced, the 2011 is all about finesse. Sweet red cherries, plums, cloves and new leather all flow through to the expressive fi ...Read More »

1994 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

97 points Antonio Galloni: "A wine that takes over all the senses, Dunn's 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. New leather, smoke and spices are some of the many notes that develop in the glass, adding complexity and character. This is an especially powerful, brooding vintage for the Howell Mountain. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. The 1994 is rich, broad, ample and incredibly expressive today. What a wine." (2/2014)96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Look out for the behemoth 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. This black/purple-colored wine adds a few more nuanc ...Read More »

2010 Duckhorn "The Discussion" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

This kind of "discussion" is still going on in wine country: varietal wines, or blends? Some thirty years ago, the Duckhorns chose to focus on varietals, but this blend of mainly estate-grown Cab and Merlot, with a bit of Petit Verdot in tow, represents the winemaker's best lots of the vintage.

1999 Bryant Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full medium-deep ruby. Knockout nose of currant, roasted stone, tobacco, leather and smoked meat, all lifted by sexy oak tones. Lush, sweet and extremely concentrated, with the trademark seamlessness shown by Turley's wines of all varietal persuasions. Strongly minerally, with a complicating note of dried herbs. A horizontal wine that spreads out impressively on the palate; tannins are broad and sweet. Tasting these three vintages from youngest to oldest offered a fascinating illustration of how masterful elevage enables a wine from an outstanding site t ...Read More »

2010 Kosta Browne "Keefer Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

94 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** If at first a bit lighter and hinting of fresh raspberries, cherries and candied violets in the nose, this lovely Pinot proves to be surprisingly juicy and energetically fruity in flavor with lots of depth and a real sense of grace. Its subtle oak is wholly obeisant to fruit, and it is both rich and very lively. It is a fine and vibrant expression of what Russian River Valley Pinot can be, and it affords both delicious drinking now and potential for four or five years of growth."

2012 Hourglass "Blueline Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueline is a little more inward and mineral-driven in style than the Hourglass Cabernet. Bittersweet chocolate, dark cherries, violets and spices meld together effortlessly. Today the 2012 is a bit inward and reticent, but it should start to open in another year or two. (Antonio Galloni)" (12/2014) K&L Notes: "It was the Cabernet Sauvignon blocks at Blueline Estate Vineyard that first seduced me into working with Hourglass," says winemaker Tony Biagi, whose first harvest with the winery was 2012. "The team had meticulously replanted many ... Read More »

2010 Kosta Browne "Kanzler Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points Wine Spectator: "Fragrant wilted rose notes are elegant and delicate, with ripe plum and wild berry flavors that are deceptively concentrated and detailed, picking up a raspberry, fresh loam and black tea edge on the finish. Drink now through 2020." (8/2012)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The character of the Sonoma Coast comes through in the 2010 Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard. Bright, chiseled and focused, the 2010 impresses for its energy and vibrancy. Slightly gamy at times, the Kanzler boasts great balance, complexity and class. The addition of a small amount of whole clusters adds aromatic lift on th ...Read More »

1986 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Two of the most impressive wines in these tastings, both of Dunn's 1986s tasted like 3-4-year old Cabernets rather than 10-year old adolescents. The opaque purple-colored 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain offers awesome richness, mindboggling intensity, huge tannin, a massive mouthfeel, and a closed yet formidably long, well-endowed finish. This wine could be put in a tasting of 1994 California Cabernets and not stand out as a 10-year old wine. Give it another 5-7 years of cellaring and drink it over the subsequent 25-30 years ... amazing! (RP) ...Read More »

1997 Etude Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon...ranks alongside the finest Tony Soter has produced. Don't miss it! Opaque purple-colored, with a gorgeously seamless personality, this unfined/unfiltered wine exhibits classic aromas of cassis, licorice, chocolate, and toast. Rich and full-bodied, with sweet tannin, a multilayered mid-palate, and a terrific finish, it possesses accessibility and opulence, but its balance and overall concentration suggest it will age for two decades or more."

2010 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is immediate, juicy and expressive in this vintage. At the same time, it seems pretty clear that the 2010 needs at least a few more years in bottle. Today, it is a bit disjointed as it is neither primary, nor showing too many tertiary notes or complexity. Sweet tobacco, leather, licorice, menthol and spices emerge over time, but the 2010 is a wine built for the cellar. There is plenty of density, but it needs time to emerge." (11/2013)94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, saturated ruby-red. Deep, complex nose offers cassis, blueberry, mocha, espres ...Read More »
