2013 Au Contraire Russian River Valley Chardonnay

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.

Dark red cherries, blueberries, cloves, lavender and mint flesh out in a juicy Russian River Pinot full of near-term appeal. There is a savory, delicate quality in the 2013 that makes it irresistible. About 40% of this fruit is estate."

2013 Ridge Vineyards "Geyserville" Alexander Valley Zinfandel

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Taking its accustomed place near the head of this year’s class, Ridge’s classic field blend is once again a wine of great depth and range, and one that comes with the demand for aging. It is fully ripe but never close to being too much and is loaded with deep, dark berry fruit, and it already shows highlights of dried flowers and sweet spice that presage increased complexity to come. It is weighty but impeccably balanced and quite long at the finish, and, given Geyserville bottlings’ stellar track record for aging, this one can be held with complete conf ...Read More »

It’s cool and fragrant, firm yet silky, the flavors quiet but convincing, suggesting rose, dried strawberry and pink peppercorn. Its slow-building intensity calls for a plate of prosciutto."

2012 Walter Hansel "The Meadows" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The least expensive Chardonnay (and it’s a heck of a value) is the 2012 Chardonnay The Meadows. Made entirely from the Hanzell clone of Chardonnay planted in sandy Goldridge soils, it sees about 40% new oak, goes through full malolactic, and is stirred on its lees.
