2012 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour - Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep ruby/purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is BV’s flagship wine. It boasts sweet notes of charcoal, burning embers, vanillin, tar and copious quantities of blackcurrant fruit. In keeping with this generously endowed vintage, the wine is supple, full-bodied, multidimensional and opulent. It will drink beautifully young and last for 20-25 years.

2012 Cakebread "Dancing Bear Ranch" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

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)90 points James Suckling: "A soft and strai ...Read More »

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 »

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 »

2013 Hourglass "Blueline Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot

90-93 points Antonio Galloni: "Dark and sumptuous to the core, the 2013 Merlot Blueline boasts serious intensity in its fruit along with equally imposing tannins. The style is broad, ample and quite rich, while the flavor profile is classic 2013, which is to say very much on the blue/blackish end of the spectrum. (AG)" (12/2014) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013s are all strong efforts displaying inky colors, great precision and ripeness, sweet tannin and an even stronger intense core of fruit than one finds in the terrific 2012s.

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville (27%) and Rutherford (73%), and aged 21 months in 52% new French oak, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, lots of minerality, a hint of oak in the background, and abundant crème de cassis fruit.

The good news is that winemaker Ed Sbragia produced 10,000 cases of this beauty. Just hitting late adolescence, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee exhibits an opaque dark purple color along with a beautiful, smoky, sweet black currant, licorice, truffle, toast and underbrush-scented nose.

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. Steve Clifton and Greg Brewer continue to produce a bevy of beautiful releases from the Sta. Rita Hills. Looking at their latest releases, their 2012 Pinot Noirs are superb and check in near the top of the vintage. While the Chardonnays ...Read More »

Sweet, penetrating raspberry and cherry flavors are framed by silky tannins, picking up an exotic candied floral quality with air. Nicely balanced syrah with excellent finishing energy and resonating spiciness." (5/2010)89 points Wine Spectator: "Tightly wound, with a trim beam of snappy dark berry fruit that's clean, pure, intense and full-bodied, gaining depth on the finish, where the flavors unfold gracefully.

Showing layer upon layer of caramel, vanilla and dark toast, the wine is ultimately more ripe and rich than it is convincingly fruity, but its never dries out and its richness is sustained all the way through.

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

1997 Cornerstone "Black Sears" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque purple-colored 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Sears Vineyard offers a sexy, up-front nose of blackberries, cassis, and smoke. Sweet, succulent, and jammy, with explosive ripeness as well as admirable flavor intensity, this low acid Cabernet has huge reserves of fruit, glycerin, extract, and tannin that have been melded into a seamless, concentrated wine of exceptional potential. Anticipated maturity: now-2016." (12/2000)92 points Wine Spectator: "A real mouthful. An ultraripe, racy, herbaceous style that offers lots of dill and bell pepper shading to the jammy plum and wi ...Read More »

1998 Culler Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon New!
1998 Culler Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Karen Culler has produced another wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon. Some may remember the Sonoma Cab, now here is the Napa Cab. The blend on the Napa is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 6% Malbec. Very much made in a Bordeaux style, this wine has wonderful balance, length and finesse, along with a good deal of power. The Malbec adds a black cherry component and dark color to the wine. Super!

The Livermore Valley is one of the oldest grape-growing regions in California, with the planting of vineyards dating back to 1849.

This, their second vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon, yielded 1570 cases of wine. Aromatically, the wine is very complex, combining the sensuous aromas of dark chocolate, green olive, dark stone fruit, tar, and toasted oak. Initially somewhat tight, after aeration the win...

1985 Diamond Creek "Gravelly Meadow" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Al and Boots Brounstein founded Diamond Creek Vineyards in 1968. The three vineyards Brounstein planted have produced some of the most long-lived, elegant wines from the state of California, wines that make the case "that Diamond Creek is the finest producer of Cabernet Sauvignon in America," according to wine writer Pierre DuMont. The second-coolest mesoclimate that Diamond Creek sources from is the five-acre Gravelly Meadow vineyard on Diamond Mountain. Originally a prehistoric river bed, this stony, gravelly soil drains rapidly and the vines struggle ... Read More »
