1995 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend Back In Stock!
1995 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A wine of great intensity and richness, it displays classic notes of licorice, barbecue smoke, creme de cassis, cedarwood and forest floor. Full-bodied with sensational purity, a multidimensional mouthfeel and a long, voluptuous finish with no hard edges, it has only reached mid-adolescence, and has at least two decades of life ahead of it." (11/2013)94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Exhilarating, vibrant aromas of cassis, minerals, cocoa powder and brown spices.

2006 Merry Edwards "Klopp Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made in the Merry Edwards style, which is powerfully ripe and extracted, yet always balanced. Dazzles with enormous cherry pie filling, cola, sassafras, beef jerky, raspberry tart, anise, pepper and smoky cedar flavors that finish with amazing length. Yet the tannin-acid structure is superb, and the wine is totally dry. Beautiful now, and should age through 2012." (8/2009) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Exotic aromas of raspberry liqueur, apricot pit and minerals. Juicy red fruit flavors are complicated by tangy minerals and a bitter cherry nuance. Becomes more elegant with ...Read More »

1994 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1994 boasts an inky/purple color along with a glorious nose of black raspberries, blackberries and black currants that is still somewhat primary despite nearly 18 years in bottle. The Phelps team kept this cuvee in 100% new French oak for 28 months. Its magnificent structure, intensity and purity of fruit, ripeness, balance combined with authoritative power and the magnetic appeal of this full-bodied, Bordeaux-styled wine are extraordinary. This amazing effort is just coming into its best years, and should drink well for at least another 15-20 years. ...Read More »

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Dancing Bear Ranch, a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot from Howell Mountain, is a superstar of the vintage. Beautiful notes of graphite, mulberries, blueberries and blackberries jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored 2012. Its full-bodied opulence, luscious texture, 45+-second finish, purity, texture and uncanny integration of all the component parts are beautiful to behold. This is a sensational, world-class Cabernet Sauvignon to drink early in life, or cellar for 10-15+ years." (10/2014)

Medium to full-bodied, rich, textured and beautifully balanced, I love the overall energetic vibe here, and it should evolve nicely for upward of a decade.

Tastes young and grape-sappy, with jammy black cherry, cola, licorice and dusty Asian spice flavors, perfectly accented with smoky new oak.

1997 Dalla Valle "Pietre Rosse" Napa Valley Sangiovese

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A superb wine showing rich and concentrated black-cherry fruit leading toward a long, deep finish. The fruit is edged by chocolate, violets and whiffs of tobacco. If there is better Sangiovese made in California, I haven’t tasted it." (10/1999)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Youthfully bright, deep red. Very fresh, floral aroma of raspberry. Juicy and bright, with lively inner-mouth perfume of raspberry, red cherry, pomegranate and rose petal. Lovely understated, floral wine. Finishes with firm but even tannins and excellent persistence. This should age much more slowly than the '96, wh ...Read More »

1997 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend Back In Stock!
1997 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The finest proprietary red produced by Pahlmeyer to date is their 1997 (a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and the rest Petit-Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec). Production is 3,300 cases, and the wine tips the scales at 14.7% alcohol. A super-rich, blockbuster effort, it exhibits an opaque purple color in addition to a fabulous bouquet of black fruits, espresso, cocoa, mocha, and flowers. A prodigious red, with low acidity, spectacular concentration, and fabulous purity as well as overall symmetry, it can be drunk now, but promises to last ...Read More »

1990 Simi "Reserve" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
1990 Simi "Reserve" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker: "A superb Cabernet Sauvignon, it appears to be the finest yet produced by Simi. An extremely saturated dark purple color suggests a wine of formidable proportions. A tight but promising bouquet offers black-cherry, vanillin, and spicy/oaky scents. Ripe and full-bodied, with superb concentration, and layers of rich, opulent cassis fruit gently infused with toasty new oak, this long, lavishly rich wine possesses moderate yet unobtrusive tannin in the finish. It is a blockbuster Cabernet that should drink well young and evolve for a... Read More »

1991 Simi "Reserve" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
1991 Simi "Reserve" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker: "Simi's 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (actually a blend that includes 6% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc) is an impressive, complex, authoritatively flavored yet elegant Cabernet that combines the restrained finesse of Bordeaux with the rich, ripe, overt fruitiness of California. The deep, dense, ruby/purple color is followed by an unformed but promising nose of blackcurrants, vanilla, and spice. Rich and full-bodied, as well as exceptionally well-balanced and supple, with moderate tannin and impressive extraction, this rich, mul... Read More »

2002 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour" Private Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2002 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour" Private Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve performed significantly better than it did seven years ago. Spicy oak and new saddle leather characteristics lead to dusty, loamy soil, cherry and cassis notes. The wine reveals terrific balance as well as a hint of French oak (BV is no longer using American oak as it did in the 1970's, 1960's and 1950's). This is intense, with some minerality as well as sweet tannins and abundant fruit, glycerin and richness. I was stunned by how well this cuvee is currently showing. It is capable of lasting ...Read More »

1997 Seavey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
1997 Seavey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon (1,400 cases) is very good. I rated this wine 96 last year, but after an additional year of bottle age, it may be even better. It spent 18 months in 40-45% new French oak, and was bottled after a light fining yet no filtration." (12/2000)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby to the rim. Complex, subtle aromas of black cherry, cassis, minerals, clove, mace, licorice, graphite, dark chocolate and violet. Very concentrated and very dense but not at all heavy. A spiciness at the core adds brightness to the impressively intense black cherry, leather and e ...Read More »

Only available in California and via the winery's mailing list. Drink now through 2000. 600 cases made." (09/98)

2001 Hundred Acre "Kayli Morgan" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Having performed spectacularly well last year in the retrospective of ten-year old Napa Cabernets, this 2001 remains incredibly young, with all of its potential waiting to burst forth. Its dense purple color is followed by notes of mulberries, creme de cassis, blackberries, licorice, graphite and subtle smoke. The wine reveals fabulous fruit along with full-bodied power and a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood. Forget it for another 4-5 years and drink it over the following 25-30 years. (RP)" (6/2012)94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full red-ruby. Fragrant, nuanced ...Read More »

92 points Stephen Tanzer: "Good full red. Vibrant aromas of sappy red raspberry, minerals, spices, cola, forest floor and flowers; smells like grand cru Burgundy Bright, dense and deep; rich and sweet but elegant and light on its feet. Combines excellent lift with lower-toned earthy complexity. Rising finish features ripe, rich tannins and noteworthy sweetness and persistence."
