1995 York Creek Spring Mountain District Meritage (Previously $55) Top Pick!
1995 York Creek Spring Mountain District Meritage (Previously $55)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby color. Vibrant aromas of cassis, black cherry, shoe polish and oak spice. Firm, focused dark berry flavors are supported by a solid spine of acids and tannins. Very unevolved but not hard or tart. Should age slowly and well." (6/1999) Wine Spectator: "Tight and firm, with a compact focus on the chunky currant, mineral, plum and blackberry flavors, it slowly unfolds to reveal more nuances. Should reward patience in the cellar. Made by Cathy Corison." (1/2000)

2005 Berthoud "Ursus Minor" Sonoma Valley Bordeaux Blend

Mike Berthoud worked under Richard Arrowood at Chateau St. Jean, then was winemaker at Arrowood Winery. After 15 years at Arrowood, Mike moved on to Mayo Family Winery. Ursus is comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot. Winemaker's notes: "As always all of the grapes used to produce the blend are grown on the Berthoud estate. Ursus is the Latin word for Bear, while Berthoud is pronounced Bear-2. Just like the bear, Ursus is a muscular wine while maintaining an elegant balance. It is an old world style wine that is...

2006 Roederer Estate "L'Ermitage" Anderson Valley Brut

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* All the benefits of maturity come through in this deliciously complex flagship sparkling wine of the French-owned estate. It shows very minute, slow-rising bubbles and a beautiful bouquet of ginger, cinnamon, cherry and fresh croissants. The flavors are layered, intricate, subtle but somehow rich. A lush and seemingly soft texture is supported by fresh acidity that encourages a long and delicate finish. Mature, but not old, it should be great through 2020 or longer."

2010 Domaine Carneros Brut Sparkling Wine

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "There is touch of candy and distant suggestions of peaches to be found in both the aromas and flavors of this explicitly champenized offering, but the wine is fixed first and last on articulate yeast and is a complete sparkler that hits all of the right marks. It comes with a fine and decidedly creamy mousse and exhibits a little more depth as well as an extra measure of richness when compared to most of its Brut cousins, and it is kept buoyant and bright from beginning to end by its enlivening, seamlessly fit acidity."

2003 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This impressive, generously filled and very solid young wine is at once both powerful and remarkably well-balanced and delivers loads of optimally ripened, curranty fruit juxtaposed with just the right measure of complementary oak. It is quite full on the palate and comes complete with lots of Cabernet tannins, but even as astringency crowds in at the finish, its confident fruit refuses to quit. It is not, nor will ever be the picture of elegance, but its stunning depth and keen varietal precision raise great expectations for a most handsome maturity som ...Read More »

1997 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is a dense purple color with boisterous, sweet, spicy, new oak, licorice, and olive notes. This flamboyant wine tastes lighter than I would have expected for a 1997. In the mouth, it reveals medium body, sweet jammy cherry fruit, and a soft finish." (12/2000) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red, with a hint of development at the rim. Classic California cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, tar and menthol.

Although its sheer sense of mass and immediacy will hold it in reasonable stead as a near-term partner to meats on the bone, it has the strength and the structure to grow even better with time and deserves a wait of at least five years if not ten."

Round, plump, and hedonistic, it should drink well for a decade.

2003 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley reveals an exaggerated tannin profile along with sweet plum, cherry, and currant fruit as well as notes of licorice, dried herbs, spice box, and toasty American wood.

2002 Kistler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Connoisseurs Guide: "If showing flashes of minerals, dried herbs and fairly rich oak to its moderately deep, cherryish aromas, this solid and firmly built wine delivers a little more of everything in the mouth. It tastes of ripe plums, dark cherries and cream, and it runs to a light bit of finishing tannin, but it is more than adequately filled and is sure to become more rounded and more finely knit with only a few years of age."

(RP)" (12/2005)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "For many wineries, this would be their top Pinot. For Rochioli, it’s their basic bottling.

Tannins amplify the richness with a chocolate warmth, evenly meshed with the fruit across the palate." (6/2005)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "What a fabulous Merlot.

Gorgeously pure, opulently full-bodied, with sweet tannins, superb concentration, and a low acid, ripe, tannic finish, it tastes like a top-notch vintage of ripe Bordeaux, but made in California.
