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

93 points James Suckling: "This is a savory and balanced second wine with plums, berries and spices such as cloves and pepper. Full-bodied and velvety with bright acidity underneath and a flavorful finish. They say they used a little press wine in this and it gives a lift to the wine. Lots of currants and hints of pepper. Traditional. 74% cabernet sauvignon, 5% cabernet franc, 6% merlot, 4% malbec and 12% petit verdot. Drink or hold. Released now."

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. Drink now-2023....Peter Michael Winery may be the best-run winery of its size for world-class quality. (RP)" (12/2014)

2011 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

94 points Antonio Galloni: "Savory herbs, menthol, smoke and licorice are some of the aromas that open up in the glass in the 2011 Dominus. This is a relatively immediate, expressive Dominus with plenty of near-term appeal. The style is open and succulent for the year, with lovely balance and poise. Crushed rose petals and dried herbs linger in the close. With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshes out nicely. In 2011 Dominus is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc...

2011 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2011 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (94AG, 94W&S, 93JS, 90ST). Wine & Spirits: "Christian Moueix and his team at Dominus have experience with rainy vintages in Bordeaux. They also farm a site that is particularly well adapted to draining excess water. So they produced a remarkable 2011, a late vintage challenged by rain close to harvest. It’s proof that a challenge met can create something sublime—like this floral, red-raspberry-scented vintage of Dominus. It’s a tense chord of flavor incorporating green herb, tobacco, cassis and raspberry in a lasting harmony. The sophisticated structure suggests it will age with grace, while the gentleness of that structure will make it accessible along the way. A great bottle for lamb. " (10/2014)

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.

2010 Cain "Five" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend

In basic terms, Cain "Five" is just that: the estate's top blend of Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The exact percentages of each are listed on the label, but that, as winemaker Chris Howell will tell you, does not explain anything. While it may seem like everybody talks a big game about their terroir, a lot of wineries are playing the point-score game, too, with heavily extracted wines from late-harvested grapes--a scene that Cain has quietly excused itself from--although James Suckling found his ...

Today, it is a bit disjointed as it is neither primary, nor showing too many tertiary notes or complexity.

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.

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." (10/2012)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed scents of fresh red ...Read More »

2012 Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Chardonnay

95-97 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard is seriously intense, but also understated. Floral aromatics meld into green pear, lemon oil, slate, ash, graphite and white stone fruits. An intensely mineral and floral wine, the 2012, boasts superb balance, not to mention terrific overall harmony. These vines sit at 1,400 feet of elevation with a 30% degree slope. The vines, Mt. Eden clone Chardonnay, are planted on St. George rootstock and dry-farmed. The sensation on Kistler Vineyard is often of wines that are ethereal yet textured. The 2012 is all that, and more ...Read More »

2011 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Syrah (Previously $220)

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Syrah Eisele Vineyard is rich, dense, textured and also incredibly primary. Smoke, tar, game, black pepper, plum and licorice notes emerge, but only with great reluctance. The 2011 remains intense and resonant in its fruit, but also very young, somber and almost raw. Readers will have to give the 2011 at least a few years in bottle. Once again, Araujo's Eisele Syrah is incredibly distinctive and intense. The 2011 was fermented with 10-15% whole clusters, with a splash of Viognier. According to vineyard manager Caleb Mosley Syrah was the least pr ...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 »

2004 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2004 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (95RP, 94ST, 93W&S, 93WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I’ll start with the best wine, which is the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve, which is a blend of 6% Bancroft, 42% Steinhauer, 18% St. Helena Home Vineyard, 11% Marston, 3% Chabot, 3% Rancho del Oso, and 2% Lampyridae fruit. This spectacular 2004 has notes of barbecue smoke, roasted meats, black currants, licorice and a blackberry-like richness. Hints of coffee bean and white chocolate also make an appearance in this plump, full-bodied, voluptuously textured, dense ruby/purple-colored wine. This is a beauty. The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is approaching its late adolescence and should hold beautifully for at least another 10-15 years. (RP)" (04/2014)

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 »

1996 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Merlot (3,000 cases) is a worthy rival. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc tips the scales at a heady 14.6% alcohol. Could it be better than the 1997? The wine is opaque black/purple-colored, with a knock-out nose of plums, black cherries, chocolate, raspberries, licorice, and toasty new oak. Viscous in the mouth, with superb purity, this is a riveting, mind-boggling Merlot that sets a new reference point for this varietal in California. It can be drunk now, but has the potential to last for 15 or more ...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 »

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 »

2013 Peter Michael "Le Caprice" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark plum/purple-colored 2013 Pinot Noir La Caprice (1,630 cases produced) reveals copious aromas of forest floor, black raspberries, cherries and blackcurrants, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and tart, crisp acidity. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. If one considers the total production of all the Peter Michael cuvées (which must be approaching 30,000 cases) and the diversity of their wines, including six cuvées of Chardonnay, four of Pinot Noir, three Bordeaux blends, and lastly Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, Peter Michael Winery may be the ...Read More »

2011 Morlet "Coeur de Vallée" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $190)

92-94 points Antonio Galloni: "Morlet's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Coeur de Vallée also has good depth. Grilled herbs, mint, tobacco and dark red fruit flow effortlessly from the glass. Today, the Coeur de Vallée shows some slightly angular contours that are a bit out of character. It will be interesting to see how the Coeur de Vallée develops over the next year. The 2011 is a departure from previous vintages, as the Cabernet Sauvignon is only 55% of the blend, while Cabernet Franc is 45%, because of the poor Cabernet yields in this part of To Kalon. Luc and Jodie Morlet's 2010s are off ...Read More »
