2008 Far Niente "Dolce" Napa Valley Dessert Wine (375ml)

A combination of late harvest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc from the foggy town of Coombsville, east of Napa, Dolce is Napa's ultimate Sauternes-style dessert wine, with its earthy, botrytis underpinning and joyful acidity. Wonderfully food-friendly, this will pair well with foie gras, poached figs, cheeses, chocolate or creme brulee. Or cellar and watch the wine evolve. Praise from Wine Review Online: "A rare example of a domestically-produced Sauternes style wine. At once delicate and decadent, this beautifully balanced dessert wine will make a great f...

2008 Qupe "X Block—Bien Nacido Vineyard—The Good Nacido—30th Anniversary" Santa Maria Valley Syrah (Previously $90)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This bottling is the winery’s most expensive wine, and usually its best. Production of the ’08 was unusually low, resulting in amazing concentration. It’s basically a detonation of cherries, raspberries, currants, cola and mocha. New oak is present, in the form of delicate toast and wood spice, but is balanced. So silky and delicious now, you can drink it, but the tannic balance suggests the cellar. Will evolve over the next 12 years, maybe longer."

2008 Sean Thackrey "Andromeda" Marin County Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright medium red. Sexy, nuanced aromas of cherry, black raspberry, minerals, spices, underbrush and smoky oak, complicated by wild leather and game nuances and lifted by a floral component. Silky and supple on the palate, with flavors of dark raspberry, plum, smoky underbrush and game showing a lovely glyceral quality on the back half. Finishes suave, broad and quite long, with fine, dusty tannins and a surprisingly light touch. Downright Burgundian in its slightly funky blend of fruit, game and soil tones."

2008 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Gregariously fruity with highlights of raspberries and cranberries intermixed with its main themes of fresh, juicy cherries, this one may arguably be criticized for being just a touch on the simple, side but no one will find it lacking in depth. It is so young that it cannot only get better with time in bottle, but we admit that its no-holds-barred richness and accessible style makes near-term resistance next to impossible."

2008 Peay Vineyards "Scallop Shelf" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Expansive bouquet of red and dark berry liqueur, Asian spices, dried violet and minerals. Lush, seductively sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors stain the palate, picking up peppery spice and smoky mineral qualities with aeration. The gripping finish strongly echoes the cherry note and clings tenaciously. Shows surprising vivacity and clarity for its power; this is really promising." (5/2010)

Sweet red berry flavors show very good depth and definition, with subtle anise, smoke and violet pastille qualities building with air.

2008 Peay Vineyards "La Bruma" Estate Sonoma Coast Syrah

Silky, alluringly sweet dark berry flavors pack a serious punch but come off as almost weightless, with tangy minerality adding spine and back-end cut. Gains weight and power with air and finishes with lingering smokiness and a hint of candied violet. This clocks in at a low 13.4% alcohol but hardly wants for power, depth or ripeness."

Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by attractive notes of red currants, licorice and spice. Medium to full-bodied with supple tannins as well as lots of personality and character, this serious red can be consumed over the next 7-8 years."

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Marching to the beat of a drummer largely unknown to any other winemaker in California, Sean Thackerey continues to produce some extraordinary wines, in this case from a field blend planted in 1905. This is clearly a Rhone Ranger blend, with a dense ruby/purple color and loads of incense, camphor, blue and black fruits, earth, and spice. Full-bodied, rich, and bursting with personality, the wine is unique/singular, with an intensity that has to be tasted to be believed. Drink it over the next decade or more."

Spicy and brisk on entry, then fleshier and deeper in the middle, offering intense red fruit flavors and a touch of spicecake. Shows a refreshingly light touch, with zero excess fat. Finishes peppery and brisk, with lingering floral notes and no obvious tannins. There's an elegant, pinot-like character to this wine that's quite intriguing." (12/2012)

2008 Lucia Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Lucia Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. A true California wine family, the Pisoni legacy began back in 1979 when Eddie and Jane Pisoni purchased the land that is now Pisoni vineyards. Their son Gary and his children, Mark and Jeff, have carried on, farming the famed vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands and venturing into winemaking. Lucia launched in 2000 as an outlet for small bottlings that represent the region. This wine comes from Garys' Vineyard, a partnership between Gary Pisoni and Gary Franscioni, planted to Pinot Noir and Syrah in 1997. The SLH Pinot Noir is like the aromatic equivalent of 4th of July fireworks, with aromas of strawberries, pomegranates and bing cherries bursting in air. All of that continues onto the palate for an explosive, richly frame wine-drinking experiment, spiked with herbs and lingering, like smoke trails in the sky, on the finish.

There's substance in the tannic structure underneath, with an earthiness and acidity-somewhere between pine and lemon-to keep the tannin fresh. The texture incorporates both the delicate fruit and the earthy tannin, needing cellar time to bring the two into greater harmony."

It is very deep and generously fruited with deftly placed oak lending a trim of sweetness to it ample blackberry fruit, and while not wholly free of tannin and heat, it does not come close to crossing the line into excess.

It has never been easy to regard Ridge's Geyserville bottlings simply as Zin, for, as once again is so evident here, they show a measure of depth and a degree of complexity rarely found in wines of the same name.

The 2008 Kalinda Reserve Cabernet is elegant, structured and ready to go. Sixty-five percent was aged in new French oak, 5% in new American, and the rest in neutral oak barrels.

Not overly ripe, this Cab is balanced by a cleansing acidity and velvety tannins that make it an ideal wine to grab a case of, and to sample a bottle a year while it matures and develops into the kind of wine that first put Oakville on the map.

2008 Kenneth Volk San Benito County Cabernet Pfeffer

Cabernet Pfeffer is one of the grape varieties that was brought nearly to extinction by the ravages of the Phylloxera louse in France in the late 1800s. Plantings of this variety still exist in old vine plantings in San Benito County. Pfeffer is German for "pepper" and the wines produced from this grape have distinctive spice aromas of crushed peppercorns. This wine is a great complement to grilled and barbequed foods as well as aged cheeses.

Of the 2008 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Utterly perfect, the 2008 Chardonnay Marcassin Estate is a dead-ringer for the 2007, but slightly richer and longer, as hard as that may be to believe. This extraordinary effort is unquestionably the 'Chardonnay of the Vintage.' In fact, it may be the 'Chardonnay of the Decade.' Brioche, nectarine, citrus and orange blossom notes intermixed with a liqueur of rocks, great acid, phenomenal concentration and staggering length result in a sublime Chardonnay that should drink well for 15+ years.

2008 Lucia "Susan's Hill Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Lucia "Susan's Hill Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah (94RP, 90ST, 90WE). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the high elevation and poor soils of the Pisoni Vineyard, the 2008 Syrah Susan’s Hill was fermented with 25% stems, and aged in all French oak, of which 30% was new. Among the most backward of the 2008 Santa Lucia Highlands Syrahs I tasted, it exhibits noble sweetness in its charcoal-infused black currant and blackberry fruit. Notions of grilled meats, smoke, black tea, and flowers also emerge from this wine of exceptional intensity as well as full-bodied power. This harmonious, impressively endowed Syrah will benefit from another 1-2 years of bottle age, and should drink well over the following decade." (08/2010)
