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 »

2009 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "Pure and focused, this understated version succeeds with finesse and detail to its dark berry, red currant, mocha and spicy, loamy earth notes. Ends with chewy tannins. Drink now through 2024. 4,987 cases made. –JL" (10/2012)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright medium-deep red.

2009 Foggy Bridge San Francisco Bay Zinfandel (Elsewhere $32)

Wine Enthusiast: "Daryl Groom is making these wines from Livermore Valley vineyards mostly and the wine is no doubt big in every way-15.6% alcohol with big tannins and big black, spicy fruit flavors hiding in there at first. It definitely needs time to open. And a giant, slathered-in-sauce kind of steak or other red meat." (11/2011)

2009 Kathryn Kennedy "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Spectator: "Exhibits a firm core of cedar, currant, spice and licorice, offering a classy, Bordeaux-like expression of structure, grace and refinement. Clean on the finish." (11/2013) K&L Notes: This is the flagship wine from the Kathryn Kennedy seven acre estate vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains, where the combination of soil type, aspect, and modern organic viticultural techniques results in a profound and ageworthy expression of terroir-driven, Bordeaux-styled California Cabernet vintage after vintage. The vineyard was planted in 1973.

2009 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points James Suckling: "Stunning nose of lavender and flowers. Currants and raspberries. Subtle and intriguing. Full and dense but wonderfully balanced with firm and silky tannins and a persistent finish. Dusty texture. A wine so balanced that you want to drink it already. Better in 2017." (10/2012)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Dominus saw about 40% new oak compared to the 20% for Napanook.

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 »

2009 Woodenhead "Guido Venturi Vineyard" Mendocino County Zinfandel (Elsewhere $38)

Wine Enthusiast: "Woodenhead does Pinot Noir well, too, but here it shows its skill with Zinfandel, producing a structured, peppery and leathery version bright in briary blackberry and plum. With fierce minerality at its core, this is a distinctive Zin for those who prefer their wines savory and earthy." (8/2013) K&L Notes: Mendocino County is possibly the most overlooked source for Zinfandel in California, with long-established vineyards which deliver substantial and structured expressions.

There is wonderful intensity but now a much richer mouth-feel thanks to a softening of tannins. Aromas of spice, dark fruit, mocha and tobacco accompanying the classic Cabernet cassis character.

Fleshy and supple in texture, offering concentrated cherry compote and floral pastille flavors plus a suggestion of fruitcake.

Plush, round and deep, the 2009 covers every inch of the palate with layers of fruit. Hints of smoke, menthol, tar and graphite add gravitas on the dark, brooding finish.

2009 Storybook Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Antonio Galloni: "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Seps Estate is a pretty wine, but it lacks the depth and body of the 2008. This mid-weight effort is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit retains the modest depth it has today." (12/2011) Connoisseurs Guide: "Sweet oak plays a fairly prominent role in this working's ripe-cherry nose and does the same in its open, ripe-leaning flavors, and, while the wine could do with a keener sense of Cabernet fruit, it is a plump and easy-to-taste effort with an inviting touch of mildly chocolaty richness.

Previously owned by the family (from 1968 to 2013), the winery has been known for making lean, balanced, long-aging wines.

This is the least expensive Pinot in this lineup but it offers terrific balance, and shows no ill effects whatsoever of being tasted among the vineyard-designate bottlings.

Attractive underbrush and forest/moss notes intermingle with cherry and spice box. The complex aromatics of this dark plum/ruby wine are very Burgundian.

Firm tannins frame an expressive core of dark red berries, licorice, scorched earth, tobacco, smoke and incense. Today, the 2009 is far too young to offer true pleasure, but it is unquestionably striking. Hints of iron, graphite and smoke add complexity on the finish supported by huge mountain tannins.

2009 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Spectator: "Shows notable herb, mint and bay leaf overtones, with a tight, dense core of dried currant and berry that is slow to open. This is very shut down for now, and should age for a long time. The flavors build on the finish. Drink now through 2027." (6/2014) K&L Notes: A legend in Napa Valley Cabernet since the first single-vineyard bottling in 1966, Martha's Vineyard in the Oakville appellation is now certified organic by CCOF.

2009 Terra Valentine "Wurtele Vineyard" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Editors' Choice** This stands out from the pack for the sheer complexity of its flavors, as well as the structural integrity. It’s absolutely dry, and the tannins are strong, in the Spring Mountain way.

Production was a mere 318 cases. Drink now–2021." (9/2012)90 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh and vibrant, offering snappy dark berry, black licorice, crushed rock and savory herb. Firms on the finish, w ...Read More »

2009 Madrigal Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $38)

Connoisseurs Guide: "Varietal in focus if a little dry/stiff, this wine gets its points for its hints of openness under its firm construction. Its spice and herb glimmers also give it a bit of range, but what starts out well on the palate ultimately winds up less accessible by the finish. It has tannins for a decade but fruit for half that time, and we would counsel the latter course." (4/2014)

2009 Linne Calodo "Nemesis" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Brilliant ruby color. Sexy blackberry, cherry-cola, potpourri and incense aromas, with a high-pitched note of black pepper. At once dense and lively, offering dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and a chewy texture. Floral and spice notes gain strength with air and carry through a very long, sappy, focused finish. There are very suave tannins here but they make a late appearance and play nicely with the densely packed fruit." (11/2011)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Syrah-based 2009 Nemesis boasts gorgeous inner perfume to match its expressive dark fruit. The Syrah here is especial ...Read More »
