2006 Roederer Estate "L'Ermitage" Anderson Valley Brut

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* All the benefits of maturity come through in this deliciously complex flagship sparkling wine of the French-owned estate. It shows very minute, slow-rising bubbles and a beautiful bouquet of ginger, cinnamon, cherry and fresh croissants. The flavors are layered, intricate, subtle but somehow rich. A lush and seemingly soft texture is supported by fresh acidity that encourages a long and delicate finish. Mature, but not old, it should be great through 2020 or longer."

2006 Walter Hansel "Cuvée Alyce" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best cuvee I tasted of the 2006s is the 2006 Chardonnay Cuvee Alyce, a spectacular Chardonnay that possesses notes of buttered citrus, white currants, crushed rocks, honeysuckle, and tropical fruits. It is full-bodied, rich, deep, pure, and stunningly long and intense. This is a superb Chardonnay and the most opulent and fleshy of all these wines. A terrific source of sensational Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays made very much in the style of the wines proprietor Stephen Hansel loves the most, white and red Burgundies, this 80-acre estate continues to bui ...Read More »

2006 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Cabernet Franc

92 points Wine Spectator: "Elegantly balanced, rich and full-bodied, with deep, supple black currant, herb, cedar and spice. Tight, focused and structured, ending with a long, complex finish. Best from 2011 through 2016" (6/2009) K&L Notes: The cult following for Pride Mountain has been in full force for years now. Situated high up at the top of Spring Mountain, the winery straddles the Sonoma/Napa county line and commands a spectacular view of Mount St Helena. The property was a winery well over 100 years ago, and now produces some of the more sought after wines in California. The reviewers... Read More »

2006 Robert Foley Napa Valley Claret

Cabernet Sauvignon." (2/2009)92 points James Suckling: "Full throttle style with loads of blackberry jam and spices on the nose and palate. Fresh mushrooms develop with time. Full and fruity, with polished round tannins. Blackberries and dark chocolate on the finish." (2/2011)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red.

2006 Merry Edwards "Tobias Glen" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Keyed in the nose on the pure, cherry-like fruit that exemplifies Russian River Valley Pinot Noir at its best, this wine shows both plenty of depth and an uncommon sense of sophistication right from the very first. Although balanced and even a touch supple to start, it follows its mates insofar as it firms and takes on a slight bit of latter-palate toughness, but its fruit and its impressions of depth do not abate, and age is again very much needed." (6/2009)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Similar to the excellent 2005, this bottling needs some time in the cellar to let the fruit, tanni ...Read More »

2006 Merry Edwards "Coopersmith" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Arguably the winery's most accessible Pinot, this outgoing effort leads with intense aromas of cherries, raspberries, sweet oak and orange rind and follows suit nicely once in the mouth. Its deep, juicy fruit flavors are backed by a fair dose of youthful acidity, and, if sufficiently tight and firm at the finish to encourage a few years of keeping, it is a wine that will drink well in the near term with the likes of roast duck and pork in savory sauces."

2006 Sean Thackrey "Sirius Eaglepoint Ranch" Mendocino Petite Sirah

95+ points Robert Parker: "The stunning 2006 Sirius, a Petite Sirah from the Eaglepoint Ranch that produced the gorgeous Sangiovese, is about as good as Petite Sirah gets in California. Long-time readers know I am a big fan of this underrated varietal in the Golden State, which also has a terrific track record of aging for 20-30 or more years when made in the manner such as Sean Thackrey's Sirius. This wine has no hard edges but is stacked and packed with black and blue fruits, camphor, and hints of pepper and spice. Moreover, the purity of the wine, the... Read More »

Racy and sharply focused, offering tangy redcurrant and wild strawberry flavors. Bracing minerality adds cut to the long, spicy finish." (6/2008) Wine Spectator: "This maturing Pinot delivers vivid, lively, complex notes of wild berry, raspberry, spice and mineral. From Gap's Crown, Dutton-Manzana, Kanzler and Miron vineyards.

Racy strawberry and raspberry flavors are impressively precise, with tangy orange zest and floral pastille qualities adding verve. Gentle tannins emerge with air and extend through the long, spicy finish."

2006 Peter Michael "L'Apres Midi" Sonoma Countyu Sauvignon Blanc

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, pale yellow. Vibrant aromas of citrus peel, green apple, gooseberry, mint and crushed stone; I was reminded of Loire Valley chenin and Chablis. Then fat but quite firm in the mouth, with lime, lemon drop and honeysuckle flavors complicated by a metallic whiff (this is fermented in stainless steel and does not go through malolactic fermentation).

2006 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** Pride has here again authored a wine of great size and command. It is intense, focused, deep, tight and open at the same time, loaded with sweet curranty perfumes and happily endowed with rich oak in the nose, and it is full and supple to start on the palate and tannic to finish. Its inviting underbelly is not to be ignored as it gives the wine a certain drinkability even now when paired with chunks of grilled meat, but its convincing fruit and its solidity promise to keep the wine in good stead for years of rewarding aging."

2006 Williams Selyem "Bucher Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fairly tannic, this lovely Pinot Noir has a dusty, dry astringency that tamps down the palate's enjoyment of the fruit, and suggests aging. Yet the vast flavors range from cherries, pomegranates and persimmons to the cola and Asian spices that always characterize WS Pinots. Best after 2010 and for six years or so."

2006 Sean Thackrey "Orion" St Helena Rhone Blend

Finding information to share about Sean Thackrey's wines is about as challenging as locating Thackrey's Bolinas property, which is located an hour north of San Francisco in western Marin County. Thackrey's rustic winery-in-a-eucalyptus grove is only accessible via a twisting road that ends at the Pacific's edge, according to the Wine Spectator. The highly-allocated results are made in Thackrey's distinctive style: powerful and intense with rugged tannins using methods culled from ancient texts, mostly translated (Thackerey reads seven languages).

Powerful, deeply scented bouquet combines fresh red fruits, flowers and Indian spices; turns more pungent with air, picking up a candied floral character that carries onto the palate. Very fresh and silky, with tangy red- and blackcurrant flavors enhanced by building spiciness. The finish will not quit. Already very complex but history says that this wine will richly reward patience."

It’s enormously ripe, with flamboyant cassis, cherry pie filling, milk chocolate, licorice and smoky oak flavors that are wrapped into thoroughly modern, softly refined tannins." (7/2009)92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** Wispy suggestions of loam and briar are almost obscured by chocolate and cherries in the highly ripe aromas of this one, but, the wine judiciously takes a step back in the mouth from excess and eschews simple ripeness in favor of sweet oak and deep, fully extracted fruit.

While Futo is situated on western hillsides overlooking Oakville, it displays a style that has more in common with the purity and elegance found in Screaming Eagle, which is a few miles to the east, on the valley floor.

The relatively cool growing season for 2007 Chardonnays produced tightly knit wines with very crisp acid profiles, superb concentration because of modest yields, and relatively long aging potential of probably up to a decade for most of th ...Read More »

2006 Philip Togni "Tanbark Hill" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Robert Parker: "The gorgeous, sexy 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Tanbark Hill offers up aromas of road tar, cedar, black currants, unsmoked, high class cigar tobacco, earth, and spice. Dense, supple-textured, and fleshy, it is already a total delight to drink, which is not always the case for a Togni Cabernet Sauvignon in its infancy. This 2006 should last for 10-15 years." (12/08) This is the second label form Philip Togni. The style is similar to the main label with an added emphasis on value. This wine is more accesible young, making it perfect t... Read More »

2006 Stolpman Vineyards "Hilltops" Estate Santa Ynez Syrah

92 points Robert Parker: "The 2006 Syrah Hilltops Estate exhibits an incredibly fragrant nose of honeysuckle, black cherries, and cassis intermixed with hints of smoke and that underlying floral component. Its provocative character is not dissimilar from a ripe Cote Rotie from the northern Rhone. This creative, individualistic effort should drink nicely for 7-8 years. Stolpman Vineyards continues to produce impressive wines under the guidance of the highly regarded Santa Ynez winemaker, Sashi Moorman." (06/08) 92(+?) points Stephen Tanzer's Internationa...

2006 August Briggs Russian River Pinot Noir

This is a graceful pinot without the pretension of more expensive cuvées. Blending fruit from the Russian River's Cummings and Hedin vineyards, the wine's perfume is a beautiful marriage between violets, raspberries and earth. The fruit tends toward plum and raspberry with a nice kick of spice on the mid-palate and a warm, structured finish. Enjoy with sage-smoked pork tenderloin.

2006 Marcassin "Marcassin Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Buttery brioche, honeyed citrus, caramelized pear and lemon, and a distinct earthy aroma jump from the glass of this light medium gold-colored wine. More buttery than most Marcassin Chardonnays, with good acidity, this deep, rich, full-bodied beauty is somewhat outclassed by some of the compelling efforts that have been produced at this magical vineyard." (6/2012)96 points Wine Spectator: "*Top 100 Wines of 2011* At once bold, rich and layered, with a measure of delicacy and finesse, unfolding to tiers of fig, melon, bubble gum, spice and honeysuckle. Finishes with a dash of cedar ...Read More »
