2012 St. Francis "Reserve" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon New!
2012 St. Francis "Reserve" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged 20 months in French oak, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve possesses an inky/purple color as well as gorgeous notes of blueberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, licorice, camphor and graphite. Full-bodied, youthful and primary as well as stacked and powerful, it offers sweet tannin as well as massive extract and richness. This potentially long-lived, Alexander Valley classic should evolve for 2-3 decades. (RP)" (12/2014)

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "The most balanced of Sea Smoke’s three new Pinots, Southing was aged in about two-thirds new oak, which gives rich caramel, toasted coconut and exotic spice notes to the ripe fruit flavors. The wine explodes with cherries, raspberries, mulberries and even chocolate mint, finishing long and spicy, and leaving the impression of wholesomeness and completeness.

Ken Brown is a key figure in Central Coast fine winemaking, having founded Byron Winery in 1984. Ken Brown Wines is a smaller operation, allowing Brown to focus his well-established talents on small lots of wine, like this cuvee of Pinot Noir: "This wine is luscious and fruit forward with appealing aromatics, expressive flavors and a rich, plush texture. Aromas of dark cherry are accented by subtle earth tones and a hint of cinnamon stick.

The 1997 Napa is an impressive effort. A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, this wine has a flamboyant nose of fruitcake, licorice, Asian spice, black currants, and toasty wood.

This is most notable for its voluptuous, velvety texture, which coats the palate with sweet flavors. It’s not a big wine but a balanced, harmonious one, and a success for the vintage."

2001 Merryvale 'Starmont' Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon  (Previously 20) Back In Stock!
2001 Merryvale 'Starmont' Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously 20)

An outstanding vintage for Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine was made from fruit selected for its complexity of flavors and supple tannins. The blend includes Merlot to help tame tannins, Cabernet Franc for additional aromatic complexity and Petit Verdot for dark fruit flavor. The wine was lightly fined with fresh egg whites to sculpt the tannins, then carefully racked and bottled unfiltered. Round and harmonious in its youth, it will reward a few years of cellaring with nuances of aroma that only time in the bottle provides. Select Napa Valley v... Read More »

Admittedly, it is more mannerly than muscular, but this is very good, convincingly ageworthy Cabernet that will hold up in the cellar for five to ten years." 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good medium ru...

Dense, lush and sweet, but ultimately a Dominus of moderate size and scale. Fruit-driven flavors of redcurrant, black cherry and tobacco, with a hint of fresh herbs. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and a slight medicinal austerity. A stylish, rather Pauillac-like wine with lovely clarity of flavor.

Still an adolescent in its development, it possesses a dense purple color along with a big, sweet bouquet of blackberries and cassis, a youthful mouthfeel, good acidity, full body, abundant fruit and glycerin and a long, heady finish.

(11/2006) K&L Notes: One of the last to release their single vineyard wines for the year, Heitz has long been known for its luxury cuvees, the Martha's and Bella Oaks Cabernets. The 2001 Bella Oaks is the feminine counterpart to the more massive and tannic Martha's.

2006 Sea Smoke "Southing" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2006 Sea Smoke "Southing" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Yes, even for a California Pinot, this is a big, strong, full-bodied wine. Southing always is. It could almost morph into a Cabernet Sauvignon. But who cares? It’s compellingly delicious, and isn’t that what wine is all about? Flavorwise, it tastes of cherries, oranges, red currants, violets, raspberries, cedar and peppery spices, with 65% new oak." (12/2008)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated red. Powerfully scented nose displays sexy red and dark berry liqueur, candied cherry and a musky floral quality. Deeply concentrated black raspberry and cherry flavors are energized by tang ...Read More »

2003 Paloma Napa Valley Merlot Back In Stock!
2003 Paloma Napa Valley Merlot

90 points Wine Spectator: "Impeccably balanced, with rich, vibrant, intense currant, fresh earth, black cherry and blackberry fruit that's well-focused. The tannins and cedary nutmeg-laced oak add a firm edge on the finish. Best to cellar short-term or decant." (12/2005) Connoisseurs Guide: "Although perhaps not quite up to previous vintages in terms of concentration and depth, this full-scaled Merlot from Paloma is a rich and generous offering that stints not at all on ripeness. It delivers plenty of up-front cherry-like yet is clipped a bit at the end by drying tannins and evident heat. It is tough en ...Read More »

2003 Quintessa Rutherford Proprietary Red Back In Stock!
2003 Quintessa Rutherford Proprietary Red

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This wonderfully rich young wine is enormously powerful in blackberry preserves, crème brûlée, mocha and cassis flavors. There’s lots of new oak, but it’s well integrated, and the tannins are softly gentle, yet ripe and complex. Almost feminine in its opulence, the wine is beautiful now, but has the balance to hold and even improve for many years. Drink now–2020." (12/2006) Wine Spectator: "Aromatics of ripe plum, spice, currant and black cherry give this a complex scent and it's supple and elegant on the palate, with firm yet polished tannins that let t ...Read More »

2004 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2004 O'Shaughnessy Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker - "The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain has a beautiful dense ruby/purple color, a luscious nose of black fruits intermixed with crushed rocks, sweet jammy strawberries and chocolate, and a long finish. Full-bodied, the wine shows some background subtle oak, chewy texture, and plenty of freshness in the heady finish. This wine is approachable now, but should drink well for 15-20+ years. A I said last year, this relatively new producer is off to a flying start. Winemaker Sean Capiaux (who has his own Pinot Noir operation) se... Read More »
