2012 Dominus "Napanook" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend New!
2012 Dominus "Napanook" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

95 points James Suckling: "This is shows wonderful aromas of tar, asphalt, wet earth and pure cherries. Full-bodied, yet soft and velvety with a fine dusty texture to the finish. Fresh and austere. Dignified. This has no Cabernet Franc in it this year. Normally there is 3% to 5%." (4/2015)92 points Antonio Galloni: "In addition to being flat-out delicious, the 2012 Napanook is also one of the very best values in top Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

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 »

2005 Heitz Cellar "Trailside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Spectator: "This fine new release, with some bottle age, shows signs of subtle maturity. Aromas of mocha, cedar, dried currant and spice box follow through to a full body, This is well-built, with fine balance and good length. (Web-2011)" K&L Notes: In the early 1980s, the Heitz Family acquired a marvelous Rutherford vineyard bordered on one side by the Silverado Trail and nudged on the other by the Conn Creek. Thus the Trailside Vineyard was born. Aged for three-and-a-half years in a combination of American and French Limousin oak, the 2005 is elegantly perfumed to complement a... 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.

Alexander Valley Cabs are known for their soft tannins and herbaceous notes, and this highly anticipated vintage from Silver Oak is no exception. From the winery: "Our 2010 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant, elegant expression of this classic appellation from a cooler vintage.

2013 Paul Hobbs Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Dark red cherries, blueberries, cloves, lavender and mint flesh out in a juicy Russian River Pinot full of near-term appeal.

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 »

2012 Cakebread Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A classic, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon offers plenty of crème de cassis and spring flower characteristics as well as beautiful density, sweet tannin and good underlying structure as well as definition. Aged 18 months in French oak, it is a beautiful example of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that can be drunk young, but will be even better in 3-4 years. It should age effortlessly for 12-15 years.

2010 Cain "Concept - The Benchlands" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Although you won't see much critical acclaim for Cain wines, since this remote, mountain winery stopped sending out for review in the early 2000s, the previously released 2009 Cain Concept caught the attention of critic James Suckling, who gave it 95 points and an enthusiastic review: "A generous, sexy wine with an abundance of subtle red fruits and mushrooms." The word about Cain gets out the quiet way, eschewing the brash noise and pomp of Napa's so-called cult wines; Cain wines often appeal to those who seek out Napa Cabernet blends of finesse, balanc...

Needs to soften with bottle age: Try in 2015." (5/2014) Connoisseurs Guide: "A full dose of sweet and mildly spicy oak takes a prominent role here and provides this ripe, nominally tannic effort the richness that its somewhat hesitant fruit seems unable to do on its own.

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.

It is, like its mates, a big and yet impeccably balanced wine of great substance and range, and, even if still very young, it is remarkably expressive stuff with layer upon layer of ripe apples, sweet oak and lees all underlain by a distinctive, minerally note.

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.

Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Estate San Andreas Fault is fresh, floral and lifted in style, with lifting fruit and good overall balance. 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.

Comments from the winemaker: "Both generous and graceful, this is a lovely expression of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of black raspberry, red currant, vanilla bean and milk chocolate. One the palate, firm yet supple tannins add weight and structure, supporting layers of plum, ra... 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 »

2013 Lewis Cellars "Barcaglia Lane" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

From the winery: "Think of our 2013 Barcaglia Lane Chardonnay as sailing off into the sunset. This vessel holds a vast cargo of golden, tropical fruits and spices with mango, cinnamon bark, toasty orange, and flecks of mineral like grain on a sandy beach. She carries plenty of canvas too, with wonderfully ripe and rich-textured fruit filling the sails. A fresh breeze of native acidity washes o'er the deck and keeps her on course till twilight and beyond." Only 550 cases produced. This 2013 vintage has not yet been professionally reviewed, but the 2012 bo... Read More »

2013 Anthill Farms "Campbell Ranch" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Antonio Galloni: "Anthill's 2013 Pinot Noir Campbell Ranch Vineyard is pungent and bold, with expressive savory aromatics, layered fruit and fabulous overall balance. This is one of the darker, more brooding wines in the range. Crushed flowers, mint, raspberries and pine are laced into the textured, super-expressive finish. Readers will have to give the 2013 a bit of time in bottle for the firm, incisive tannins to soften after which the wine should be absolutely fabulous. There is a lot to look forward to in the Campbell Ranch. 93+ (AG)" (1/2015) K&L Notes: The Campbell Ranch Vineyar... Read More »

2012 Philip Togni "Tanbark Hill" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Tanbark Hill is a great introduction to the vintage and the Togni house style. Succulent and expressive in the glass, the 2012 is laced with red cherry pit, plum, spice, leather and mint. The pliant, expressive finish is pure 2012. Readers who want to experience a Togni wine at an entry-level price will find much to admire in this outstanding effort. This is one of the best Tanbark Hills I can remember tasting. (Antonio Galloni)" (12/2014) K&L Notes: The much anticipated 2012 vintage is right around the corner. The wines from Philip Togni ... Read More »

2012 Pahlmeyer Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2012 Pinot Noir is drop-dead gorgeous. Dark red cherry, plum, stone fruit, menthol, cloves and spices are all woven together in a layered, sumptuous wine bursting with class and balance. This is a striking wine in every way. The 2012 is the first vintage made by new winemaker Bibiana Gonzalez-Rave, and it is fabulous. Gonzalez-Rave aged the 2012 in Francois Freres barrels, 85% new. Stylistically, the Pahlmeyer Pinot is a littler juicier and more textured than the wines Gonzalez-Rave is making at Wayfarer. She has done an equally fabulous job here. Wh ...Read More »

2009 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** The new oak on this Cab Franc is strong. So is the fruit, which suggests red cherries and blackberries so ripe the juice runs down your chin. But the wood and fruit haven’t come together. They’re slugging it out for supremecy. No reason to have to choose between them. Give it 6–8 years in a good cellar and let everything come together." (11/2013) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright dark red. Blueberry, cassis and smoky oak aromas are lifted by a floral note. Spicy flavors of blueberry and tart red cherry lead to substantial dusty, oak-edged tannins that turned ...Read More »

2007 Peay Vineyards "Scallop Shelf" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

95 points Wine & Spirits: "Scallop Shelf takes its name from the fossils found in the soil at this old fruit orchard, a vineyard site four miles from the Pacific. It's a blend of six clones, emphasizing the spicy red fruit character of the Pommard clone, which, when it hits on the far Sonoma Coast, makes some of the region's most distinctive pinot noirs. The wine is transparent in color and in its strawberry-like fruit, bright and intense against the smoky conifer minerality of the soil. There's a weave of energy to it, tart and brash as a young wine, growing more focused and refi ...Read More »
