2012 Textbook "Mise en Place" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Textbook "Mise en Place" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The inky/purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mise en Place comes from the rocky east side of Oakville, and spent 24 months in French oak. Playing it closer to the vest than its siblings, with coaxing, it reveals some extraordinarily ripe, rich blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with hints of charcoal, scorched earth and wet rocks. It has tremendous upside potential, but at present it is the least flattering of the Textbook Cabernets. Full-bodied and powerful, it should turn out to be a beauty, but buyers should plan on deferring their gratifica ...Read More »

2013 Shafer "Red Shoulder Ranch" Carneros Chardonnay

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch looks like one of their all-time greats, and to date they’ve all been very impressive wines. The crisp tangerine, honeyed citrus, pear and white peach notes are prominent in this beautifully fruited medium to full-bodied Chardonnay that shows additional orange marmalade notes in the mouth. It’s textured, crisp acid, from having not gone though malolactic, gives it focus and zest, and the overall impression is one of brilliant richness subtly touched by smoke, but letting the fruit dominate. Year in year out, this i ...Read More »

2012 Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a picture-perfect example of the year. Dark blue and black fruits, smoke, licorice, spices, menthol and new leather flesh out in the glass. The 2012 is supple, racy and expressive, even at this early stage. This is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Packaged in an interesting bottle with a label sporting green ink, this 2012 Merlot is made in an explosively rich, blockbuster style. Its opaque purple color is accompanied by oodles of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit intertwined with hints of espresso and chocolate.

This is a multi-dimensional, profound Chardonnay (as it often was when made by Helen Turley) from a vineyard planted with an Old Wente clone as well as the Hyde clone of Chardonnay.

2013 Lewis Cellars "Reserve" Napa Valley Chardonnay

From the winery: "Unusually warm, dry conditions followed by excellent weather throughout harvest yielded an opulent and classically rendered Reserve Chardonnay in 2013. Ripe and sweetly fragrant Bosc pear, batard and caramel aromas are threaded with toasty oak, hazelnut and gunmetal. This provocative array enveloped in tantric satiny texture, lingers on the palate with Burgundian lees character before finally tailing off to a toasty finish."

Dark red stone fruits, spices, licorice and mint are some of the many notes that meld into the finish in this strikingly beautiful Bordeaux blend.

2012 Lewis Cellars "Mason's" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Subtlety may not be its strong suit, and there is no question but that this bottling flirts with excess, but it is so deep, so rich and so solidly fruited that its exuberant ripeness and back-palate heat are easily forgiven as mere misdemeanors. Make no mistake, this is a big wine of great amplitude and substance, as those of its maker tend to be, and, yet for all of its largesse, it is fairly tight and well-structured and never gives in to glyceriny fatness. It is sufficiently tough as to warn off drinking anytime soon, and it is best laid away for six ...Read More »

It takes two days of air before the wild, brushy fragrance and rose-hip acidity fully sync with the plumpness of the fruit. This is a commanding California Pinot Noir for the cellar, a rugged beauty with length, substance and complexity that feels deliberate and mountain grown. Cellar it for four or five years."

The high-acid style of the vintage at Hirsch comes through in spades. Crushed flowers, savory herbs, iron and a host of saline-infused notes flow through to the finish. The 2012 comes across a bit compact, with hints of reduction that mask the fruit. Today, the overall impression is of angularity.

2010 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Most of the fruit for this restrained, savory cabernet comes from cuttings Emmett Rixford purportedly sourced from Château Margaux in the 1890s. Martin Ray propagated his own cuttings from that selection to plant in this vineyard's shallow, shale-laced soils at 1,800 feet of elevation in the 1940s and 50s, and later Jeffrey Patterson replanted it in the 1980s with a selection from those vines.

So silky and delicious now, you can drink it, but the tannic balance suggests the cellar. Will evolve over the next 12 years, maybe longer." (10/2013)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A gorgeous bottle of wine, the 2008 Syrah Bien Nacido X Block 30th Anniversary ...Read More »

2012 DuMol Russian River Valley Syrah

93-95 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Syrah presents a compelling range of black fruit, smoke, incense, tobacco, licorice and savory herbs. A rich, powerful wine, the 2012 hits the palate with stunning depth and richness. The style here is a bit riper and more immediate than the single-vineyard Syrahs. There is plenty of personality in the glass. What a gorgeous and promising wine this is." (2/2014)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "DuMOL fashions three noteworthy Syrahs which probably receive less attention than they should because of the winery’s high visibility and credibility for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The 201 ...Read More »

2009 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The intensely flavorful wines from Rutherford's Trailside Vineyard have been part of the Heitz range since 1989. The vineyard is flanked by the Silverado Trail on one side and Conn Creek on the other and is certified organic. Aged in oak for three and half years, the winery descibes the 2009 vintage thusly: "Opulent hues of ruby and garnet draw you headlong into the glass; rich aromas of blackberry and a hint of nutmeg invite you to stay. With just the right amount of French oak there is a subtle sweetness that lifts and enhances the dark fruit character... Read More »

2012 Anderson's Conn Valley "Estate Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve exhibits classic crème de cassis, graphite and spice box notes as well as terrific purity, plenty of depth and ripeness, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. In the past, this cuvée has been highly successful as well as very ageworthy. The 2012 is another beauty. Juicy and filled with cassis fruit, it is still primary, but promises to keep for two decades or more. (RP)" (10/2014) 90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "Super ripe red raspberries, cloves, mocha and licorice are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve. T ...Read More »

2002 Rafanelli Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "(Editor's Choice) Starts with side-by-side aromas of cassis and black cherries. Now one stars, then the other. Finally, new oak kicks in. It hasn’t begun to come together yet, but when it does, in 4 or 5 years, you’ll find a rich, dense wine, soft and smooth, with a wonderful tease of tannins." (11/2005)

1998 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc

94 points Robert Parker: "I am amazed by how spectacular Pride Mountain's Cabernet Franc continues to be. The fabulous 1998 Cabernet Franc is a noteworthy achievement in this difficult vintage. Its deep purple color is accompanied by a gorgeous bouquet of cedar, spice box, black fruits, smoke, and earth. In the mouth, there is a smorgasbord of sweet black fruits with a hint of dried Provencal herbs. Opulent and full-bodied, with marvelous concentration yet an eerie sense of weightlessness, this rich, complex 1998 can be drunk now as well as over the next... Read More »

2012 PharaohMoans Paso Robles Syrah (Previously $100)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 2012 PharaohMoans is a blend of 98% Syrah and 2% Grenache that was aged in 80% new French oak barrels prior to bottling. A big, rich and fleshy Paso red, it knocks it out of the park with its chocolatey dark fruits, pepper, olive and charred meat-like aromas and flavors. This isn't for those craving delicacy, yet it stays clean and classy, with full-bodied richness, thrilling amounts of texture and a seamless, focused finish. There's not a track record here with regards to aging, yet this should be better in another year and have at least a ...Read More »
