2007 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Napa/Sonoma Counties Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a slightly more brooding and formidably endowed effort displaying more extract, tannin and structure. In spite of its massive size, concentration and extract, it possesses gorgeously sweet tannins as well as a sense of equilibrium. (RP)" (12/2010)94 points Wine Spectator: "A rich, savory style, thick and concentrated, offering firm cedar, black licorice, mineral and graphite, with a touch of espresso and tar. Full-bodied, chewy and complex, very backward now but sure to reward. (Web Only—2011)"93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Utterly delicious, so soft and refined. It’s like b ...Read More »

2007 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A lovely Cabernet Franc, one of the best on the market. Shows classic Pride Mountain characteristics of ripeness, balance and immediate drinkability, although it will take a few years in the cellar. Dry and full-bodied, it’s rich in black cherries, spices and oak, with firm tannins." (5/2010)90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**One Star** Perhaps it is this wine's hilltop provenance that is responsible for taking away some of its varietal focus, but, that quibble aside, this is a fulsome, deep, rich rendition nonetheless, and if treated as a ripe Bordeaux mix, its closest analogy, it is a ...Read More »

2007 Joseph Swan "Trenton Estate" Russian River Valley Syrah

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Black and blue fruits on the nose, complicated by notes of black cardamom and candied violet. Spicy and precise on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering sweet blackberry and boysenberry flavors lifted by zesty acidity. The smoky, sweet, clinging finish leaves a note of cracked pepper behind." (5/2012)90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a notable wine for its smooth, supple tannins and its intense flavors of black cherry jam, mocha, bacon, black pepper and sandalwood. It’s a full-bodied selection for drinking soon, and be sure to pair it with almost anything i ...Read More »

2007 Merry Edwards "Olivet Lane" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "There’s tons of cherry, cola and licorice flavor in this vigorous young Pinot. It also shows an earthy streak of herbs and mushrooms, suggesting a sautéed Portobello splashed with balsamic. The result is complex and fascinating, yet vigorous tannins and keen acidity warrant time in the cellar." (12/2009) Connoisseurs Guide: "Ms. Edwards's Olivet Lane bottlings are typically tight and vibrant, and this latest wine very much proves the point. It teams pert, red-cherry fruit with a fair measure of sweet oak and runs to firmness even while showing fairly good depth. While its acid ...Read More »

2007 Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker: "It is hard to find a better value than the outstanding 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (which may even be discounted for under $25 a bottle). This sleeper of the vintage exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as loads of cassis, blackberry, graphite, and cedar notes. Full-bodied, rich, and concentrated with silky tannins and a lush, generous constitution, this beauty is capable of lasting 10-15 years." (12/09) 90 points Stephen Tanzer: "Good deep ruby-red.

2007 Walter Hansel "Cahill Lane" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

It is full-bodied, with gorgeous texture, terrific mouthfeel, and vibrant acidity and purity. In fact, the striking component of these 2007s is the extraordinary fruit purity that seems to be found in all the top Chardonnays as well as other varietals...Moreover, the 2007s look to be a return to the brilliant quality of the wines produced here in 2005 and 2004."

Drink now through 2020." (8/2010) 89-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Neyers Ranch’s dense ruby/purple color is followed by classic aromas of bay leaf, cassis, loamy soil, and licorice. The oak is pushed to the background in this full-bodied, nicely textured, long, fresh Cabernet. It should evolve easily for 15+ ...Read More »

Oak adds sweet, smoky notes of toast, and the finish includes lots of tangy spices. Elegantly constructed, this young Pinot needs a few year in the cellar." (12/2009)91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Long on well-ripened black cherries and fit with a considerable complement of toasty oak, this rich, multi-faceted young Pinot is filled out with complexing elements of dark soils and smoke.

Essentially a clone of the 2006, but seemingly more seamlessly constructed, it will be a future icon of California, and should evolve effortlessly for two decades or more. (RP)" (8/2009) K&L Notes: Robert Parker calls Sean Thackrey "one of California's most iconic and mystical winemakers." The fruit for this was sourced from the Rossi vineyard near St. Helena.

It is full but not heavy on the palate and already exhibits the wonderfully lush texture of fine Pinot Noir.

This is, again a wine with crisp, zesty acidity, striking liquid minerality, and a long, full-bodied finish." (12/2008)94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow.

(Web-2010)" K&L Notes: Notes on the 2007 Cabernet from Rivers-Marie: "This wine has always been highly aromatic. Starting out with a nose of violets, wet rock and cassis, the entry takes on a richness that betrays its two hillside sources.

Sweeter, deeper and more intense than the Willow Creek offering, with a sappy quality in the middle palate and riper, darker flavors of pomegranate and sassafras. A step up in density. Finishes with dusty tannins and very good lift. This one comes from owner/winemaker Thomas Brown's warmest pinot site, and yet it has the lowest pH in 2006 at 3.38. The fruit here always retains acidity, Brown explained, adding that it used to go to sparkling wine." (6/2009)

Suavely blends sweet and savory elements, with a supple texture and fine-grained tannins on the back. This wine is already showing well but Smith believes it really needs at least five years of bottle age to show what it has, adding that 2008 and 2009 "are going to be superb for syrah.""

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Robert Craig "Affinity" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (96RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Affinity exhibits more graphite, but in essence is similarly elegant, with supple tannins (although more velvety than in the 2006), very young, primary black and blue fruit notes, and superb concentration, texture, and length. This is an exceptionally promising wine that is still hiding behind a rather primary display of fruit. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 15 or possibly 20 years. This is the best group of wines I have ever tasted from Robert Craig Winery. Not only is there not a single disappointment in this portfolio, but these are all noteworthy wines, with thrilling levels of quality. Moreover, they are moderately priced for Napa Valley as well as ageworthy. I think these are the finest wines that I have ever tasted from Robert Craig Cellars. (RP)" (12/2009)

2007 Migration Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

2007 was really an exceptional growing season in the Anderson Valley. A dry winter and cool summer let the grapes ripen super-slowly and evenly - a particularly great thing for Pinot Noir. The resulting wine marries sweet floral notes like jasmine with earthy mushroom undertones and tangy blackberry fruit on the nose. In the mouth, the blackberry grows more intense, combined with marionberry, anise, orange blossom and light cocoa notes, all in a medium-body frame that gives the wine structure without overwhelming its beauty with hulking tannins. 90 poin...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The late-released 2007 Heart Stone, which spent 28 months in a combination of barrels, demi-muids, and pungeons, turned out to be a final blend of 65% Syrah, 21% Grenache, and 14% Mourvedre. Like all of Justin Smith’s 2007s, it is a riveting, sensational wine that carries its heavy weight, profound richness, and intensity very gracefully. That is no doubt an effect of the limestone soils of this region. Blackberry and smoked meats as well as some garrigue and floral notes are followed by a dense, rich, pure, multi-layered wine that just screams for grill ...Read More »

2007 Saxum "James Berry Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Utter perfection, and one of the most profound Rhone Ranger wines I have ever tasted... As with many prodigious wines, the extraordinary freshness, purity, equilibrium, and singularity of this effort is breathtaking. Its dense purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary, incredibly pure, all enveloping, intense, sweet nose of black raspberries, kirsch, spring flowers, spice box, and pepper. Full-bodied with not a hard edge to be found, it is stunningly concentrated with unreal purity, a voluptuous texture, and remarkable freshness for a wine of such ...Read More »

2007 Sine Qua Non "Pictures" Grenache
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2007 Sine Qua Non "Pictures" Grenache (97RP, 95ST, 91WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 87% Grenache, 11.5% Syrah, and 1.5% Viognier, this wine has wonderful floral notes intermixed with black raspberries, black cherries, licorice, graphite and some camphor. In the mouth, more white chocolate notes appear, along with meatiness and some silky tannins. Its great purity, density and richness make me think this wine could even improve a few points and flirt with perfection. This stunning wine should drink nicely for another 10-15 years.

2007 Turley "Juvenile" California Zinfandel Back In Stock!
2007 Turley "Juvenile" California Zinfandel

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Zinfandel lots from the youngest vines (around 25 years) are put into a general blend called Juvenile. This is always one of the least expensive and delicious offerings. The 2007 Zinfandel Juvenile offers good berry fruit, pepper, and spice as well as medium body, and no hard edges." (12/2008) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red. Black fruit and licorice aromas complemented by exotic chocolate and coffee nuances. Classic sweet zin flavors of dark berries, pepper and spices framed by ripe acidity. Finishes sweet, dense and persistent. A very good vintage for this blend, whic ...Read More »

2007 Williams Selyem Sonoma County Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium red. Energetic red and dark berry scents, with suave notes of potpourri and smoky minerals adding complexity. Deep black raspberry and cherry flavors are firmed by silky tannins and gain sweetness and spiciness with air. The mineral quality lingers impressively on the long, juicy finish, which leaves a sweet red berry note behind. Livelier than the Central Coast bottling, and drinking very well now." (5/2009)90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Intimating a tilt towards ripeness in its aromas but much more restrained than that on the palate, this wine finds itself focused on fairly co ...Read More »

2007 Kosta Browne "Garys' Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "The outstanding vineyard that is the source of these grapes is a name that shows up on more than a few labels, but, in this vintage, none rival this bottling in fruity strength. Similarly the wine is unequaled when it comes to fine balance, and its fleshy, fully expressed fruit is underpinned by tailored tannins that, combined with its sense of sheer depth, make for an eminently ageworthy Pinot with a future as bright as bright gets." (7/2009)93 points Wine Spectator: "Dense and extracted, making points for its subtle, well-focused, elegant flavors. (Web-2012)"92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red.

2007 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 2007 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (99RP, 96CG, 96WS, 95JS, 94ST, 94WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aged 24 months in new French oak, this infant 2007 exhibits an inky/purple color along with notes of graphite, spring flowers and smoky oak. This full-bodied, classic Insignia reveals fabulous depth, ripeness, texture, viscosity and richness. Still young and unformed, it should evolve for 25 or more years. Perhaps I should just go ahead and give this 2007 a three-digit score as it is a profoundly great Cabernet Sauvignon-based effort. The production was 13,500 cases of this 100% estate fruit blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. The alcohol came in at 14.5%. The growing season was nearly ideal, with early bud break, generous flowering, a bountiful crop size, and summer weather that was warm and dry with no significant heat spikes. According to the Phelps winemaking team, the cluster grape weights in 2007 came
