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.

2013 Pahlmeyer "Jayson" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Jayson is the second label of Pahlmeyer Wines, with a focus on quality and approachability. The 2013 vintage was dry and hot in Napa, and harvest was considerably earlier than usual. What resulted is a deep, delicious concentration in the wines. From the winery: "The intensity of this wine is first revealed by its garnet core, then from concentrated aromas of dark black cherry and coffee, nicely lifted by notes of candied red fruits, sarsaparilla and a hint of leather.

Nicely avoids the greenness of the vintage and finishes with a fine dusting of tannins, good energy and moderate length."

(10/2014) Connoisseurs Guide: "It would be hard to imagine that Sauvignon Blanc could be any fresher and more buoyant than this one, but, such virtues aside, the wine is very simple and more candied than keenly fruity at this point, and its whispered hints of green herbs and grass are not hard to miss."

2001 Turley "Juvenile" California Zinfandel

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The dark plum/ruby-colored 2001 Zinfandel Juvenile (15.3% alcohol) offers pure briery raspberry and cherry fruit, medium body, surprising elegance and restraint, and a stylish, graceful finish. While not a big wine by Turley’s standards, it is impeccably well made. Drink it over the next 2-3 years." (10/03) And, according to Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium ruby-red. Exotic jammy berries, black cherry and clove on the expressive nose. Sappy, jammy and ripe, with creamy fruit and unmistakable zin character. A lush, supple zin that's pe ...Read More »

2003 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc

90 points Robert Parker: "A wine not to be missed is Araujo’s 2003 Sauvignon Blanc. A fragrant, exotic Sauvignon Blanc (two-thirds of the blend is the flamboyant clone of Sauvignon Blanc known as Musque) with 4% Viognier in the blend, it offers up tropical fruit, fig, mineral, and earth-like aromas. This elegant, crisp, medium-bodied, fresh but intense white seduces the taster by its aromatics alone, but the flavors hold up as well."

2006 Turley "Mead Ranch" Atlas Peak Zinfandel

88-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Zinfandel Mead Ranch is from the cooler Atlas Peak area of southern Napa. The wine has great fruit, full body, loads of cassis, and briery raspberry notes intermixed with some pepper, soil undertones, and underbrush. The wine has fabulous ripeness, full body, and a long finish." (12/2007)90 points Wine Spectator: "Rustic, but showing a distinctive sense of place, with cracked pepper, wild berry and rusty red clay aromas and roasted herb and spicy loam flavors."

1996 Araujo "Eisele Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The saturated purple-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard offers an attractive nose of black fruits intermixed with toast, minerals, subtle tar, and wood smoke. Full-bodied, with impressive purity, a multi-layered mid-palate and finish, it is an expressive, pure, powerful, and large-boned wine." (1/2000)94 points Wine Spectator: "Smooth and polished, with detailed flavors of ripe plum, black cherry, spice and light oak, this pedigreed red turns rich and elegant, with a long, complex aftertaste." (11/1999)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby color, darker for its age than the '97. Slightly roasted ...Read More »

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. Heitz Cellar's tasting notes are written by the family and "extended family" in the winery office: "The enticing dark garnet color of this Cabern... Read More »
