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

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Flirting with perfection, the 2012 Dominus is composed of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Five thousand cases were produced, a relatively modest amount from this large vineyard’s big crop. Christian Moueix told me that there was plenty of heat in 2012, but there were no excessive hot spells that can plague Napa Valley vintners during the growing season and harvest. This wine’s opaque plum/purple color is accompanied by a beautiful nose of sweet crème de cassis, a touch of background oak (only 40% new oak is used), spice box ...Read More »

2012 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
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 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Cask 23" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Cask 23" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

97-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23 appears to be the finest Cask 23 since the glory years of the mid-eighties. It boasts a dense purple color, complex notes of spice box, Christmas fruitcake, blackcurrant jam, mulberries and spring flowers, as well as a full-bodied, opulent personality. It is a profound example of this iconic wine that went through a period of mediocrity in the mid- to late-1990s prior to being sold. Drink now-2038. (RP)" (10/2014)

2012 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Pre-Arrival)

96-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An inky/purple color is accompanied by wonderful aromas of smoky black currant and blackberry fruit interwoven with incense, camphor, charcoal and new oak. The wine is deep, multidimensional, full-bodied, rich and opulent with a voluptuous texture. Even as a barrel sample, this stunning effort is irresistible. This deep, prodigious 2012 should be approachable when released and age effortlessly for 25-30 years.

2012 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2012 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A great effort from Far Niente in this truly magnificent vintage, with its similarities to 2002, the Far Niente 2012 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple color, plenty of structure and aging potential, and an impressive inner core of sweet crème de cassis fruit, licorice and background vanilla. 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. And wow, it is “locked and loaded.” I wouldn’t be surprised to see this w ...Read More »

This is a sure-thing for those of you looking for a top 2012 Napa Cabernet. In this highly-regarded California vintage, Randy and Debbie Lewis continue to impress us with their ability to produce intense, powerful wines that seamlessly match decadence with elegance. Expect this to get huge reviews as the press gets a chance to taste and review it.

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 ...

A layered, lush, Pomerol-inspired Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers up notes of Christmas fruitcake, forest floor, underbrush, plums and red and blackcurrants. Sweet tannins, a succulent, fleshy mouthfeel, beautiful concentration and texture, and a long finish result in a sumptuous, irresistible mouthful of Cabernet Sauvignon.

(10/2014) K&L Notes: In basic terms, Cain "Five" is just that: the estate's top blend of Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, M... Read More »

2003 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a gorgeously opulent, complex, profound blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec (15.1% alcohol) from Jayson Pahlmeyer and his brilliant winemaking sidekick, Erin Green. Pahlmeyer-s wines, first made by Helen Turley, continue to go from strength to strength. This nearly fully mature 2003 possesses deep, rich black currant fruit notes intermixed with hints of white chocolate, spice box, flowers and subtle background oak. Rich, authoritative and full-bodied, it should last for another decade, b ...Read More »

2011 Spottswoode "Family Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2011 Spottswoode "Family Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points James Suckling: "A solid Spottswoode with mint, currants, berries and flowers. Sweet tobacco and rose petals. Full body with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Tangy, energetic and lively. A wine with form, tension and beauty. This is classic California. 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Better in 2016." (5/2014)94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is just as beautiful as it has always been. Silky, perfumed and impeccably balanced, the 2011 is all about finesse. Sweet red cherries, plums, cloves and new leather all flow through to the expressive fi ...Read More »

2006 Saxum "Broken Stones" Paso Robles Syrah

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Broken Stones (63% Syrah, 24% Grenache, and 13% Mourvedre) blew me away. An inky/purple color and a dazzling, explosive bouquet of black raspberries, camphor, cassis, forest floor, and spring flowers are followed by a rich, elegant wine offering laser-like precision as well as a striking minerality. It is a powerful yet graceful effort that should drink well for 10-12+ years. One of California’s super-star producers, Saxum owns one of the state’s most remarkable vineyard sites, the James Berry Vineyard, which has been broken into a number of dif ...Read More »

2012 Tor Kenward "Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of my highest ratings goes to the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard. Super sweet notes of white chocolate, crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, licorice and cedarwood along with baking spices soar from the glass of this first-growth look-alike from Tor Kenward. Everyone who uses this fabulous vineyard seems to create something extra special. With superb intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and incredible purity, texture and depth, this classic from Napa should drink well for 20-25 years. Tor Kenward continues to turn out a portfol ...Read More »

1998 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (13,000 cases) will disprove all the naysayers about how bad the vintage was in the North Coast. It possesses an opaque ruby/purple color, a gorgeous perfume of loamy soil, new saddle leather, chocolate, and black cherry and black currant fruit, full body, and ripe tannin in the finish. As it sits in the glass, notes of cedar and spice box also emerge. Although more evolved than most Montelena Cabernets are at age 4, there is no doubting that it will still provide considerable pleasure at age 15 or 16.

2004 Heitz Cellar "Martha's Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Spectator: "Shows hints of maturity, with chocolate mint, cherry and currant flavors that are intense yet elegant, balanced and stylish. Full-bodied, firm and focused, this is complex and concentrated without being heavy, offering the wine's classic style and personality. Drink now through 2018." (10/2009) K&L Notes: A legend in Napa Valley Cabernet, Martha's Vineyard in the Valley's Oakville appellation is now certified organic by CCOF. Heralded as a classic, the 2004 shows pure "Martha's" Cabernet varietal blackberry and black cherry aromas and flavors along with the iconic wi... Read More »

1997 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The enormous 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a super-powerful, fabulously-concentrated, 50-year wine. Aromas and flavors of blackberry/cassis jam, minerals, and subtle oak are found in this extravagantly rich, gargantuan Cabernet Sauvignon that should age effortlessly for half a century. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2050." (12/2000)93 points Antonio Galloni: "In this context, the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is very pretty, but not quite at the level of the very best wines in this tasting, a tall order for sure. This is a texturally open and silky vintage for the ...Read More »

2012 Plumpjack "Estate" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The full sensuality of 2012 comes through in Plumpjack's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich, layered and sumptuous in the glass, the 2012 is absolutely striking. Espresso, mocha, rose petals and spices wrap around the radiant finish. This is such a gorgeous example of the year and one of the truly great sites in Napa Valley. The Reserve gets most of the attention at Plumpjack, but in the 2012, the straight Cabernet Sauvignon is nearly as stellar. (Antonio Galloni)" (12/2014)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Oakville is from the well-known McWilliam Oakville V ...Read More »

2011 Duckhorn "Three Palms Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot
Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2011 Duckhorn "Three Palms Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot (93CG, 91WS). Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** The best Merlots are wines that charm in their youths but grow in breadth and gain complexity as the years pass, and this one from Duckhorn is a wine that is nowhere near reaching its best even if it is easy to like and shows impressive range even now. It is fully grounded in the rich, cherry-like qualities that define good Merlot, and it is well-balanced, weighty and seductively supple in feel. It teases with complexing touches of toast, sweet cream, graphite and mint that will be amplified as it ages, and, its very considerable immediate appeals noted, it deserves to be hidden away for no fewer than another half-dozen years."

2011 Kosta Browne "Gap's Crown Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** If tilting a touch more to ripeness than most of its North Coast kin, this bottling does not err to softness, and its big-shouldered style comes with lots of firm muscle. It is a big, well-extracted, very substantial Pinot, to be sure, with abundant flavors of raspberries and sweet cherries, and it carries a strong imprint of rich oak. Its lengthy flavors are underpinned by a firm streak of tannin, and it ends with the kind of finishing grip that predicts a very good future."

2005 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Sonoma/Napa Counties Claret

95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Among the richest and most outgoing wines in this issue, Pride's Reserve Claret is a fully extravagant wine that trades equally on deep fruit, ripeness and a wealth of lavish oak spice, but it never crosses over the line of being too much. Its tantalizing plumpness and succulent Merlot properties are offset just now by a bit of Cabernet toughness that prescribes a bit of patience, and make no mistake about it, this compelling effort is certainly bound for better, and it will continue to unfold for six to twelve years and last longer."
