2011 Happy Canyon "K&L—Doug Margerum Cuvée" Happy Canyon Red Blend Top Pick!
2011 Happy Canyon "K&L—Doug Margerum Cuvée" Happy Canyon Red Blend

The wine is made up of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. It drinks well right now but should hold for several years. Members of the K&L staff had a chance to go down and spend a couple hours with Doug and his crew at the winery. The thought was to make a red blend from Happy Canyon, which K&L had never done before. Happy Canyon is the smallest AVA in Santa Barbara County. It lies north and west of Lake Cachuma and is home to six major vineyards: Cimarone, Grassini, Happy Canyon Vineyard, McGinley, Star Lane, and... Read More »

2011 Sbragia "Monte Rosso" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $55)

90-92 points Antonio Galloni: "Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, savory herbs and incense flow from the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Rosso Vineyard. This is another impressive 2011 Cabernet from Ed and Adam Sbragia. Here, too, there is plenty of depth and site-specific character, with firm, gravelly tannins that support the fruit and impart distinct mountain characteristics."

2011 Palmina "Pressed-Pronto Red" Santa Barbara County Barbera/Dolcetto

Praise from the Wine Advocate: "Without a doubt, Steve Clifton is producing some of the finest examples of Italian variety wines in California. While I think you get the most bang for the buck from Steve’s more inexpensive whites and reds, his upper-tier Nebbiolos and blends certainly have unique characters and offer high quality." (JD, 08/2013) And from Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Is there anything Palmina doesn't do well these days? In the past, this lineup of Italian-inspired wines has always had one or two slight underachievers, but not this year. Eve... Read More »

2011 Seghesio "Old Vine" Sonoma County Zinfandel

92 points Wine Spectator: "Densely structured and full of character, offering bold cherry and licorice aromas that lead to layered flavors of savory plum, grilled herb and Asian spice. The finish is framed by ripe but big tannins. Best from 2016 through 2022." (6/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Zinfandel Old Vine, made from a collection of their numerous resources for old vine Zinfandel, reveals an evolved dark ruby color along with an attractive bouquet of plum sauce, raspberry jam and a hint of strawberry. Its front end-loaded style turns slightly compact and abrupt, but it is an attractive, easy- ...Read More »

2011 Hendry "Block 7 & 22" Napa Valley Zinfandel

96 points Wine & Spirits: "The scent of this wine is worth the price of admission, a combination of sage, sun and wet rock, of forest pines and dark red fruit. It reminded Wolfgang Weber, one of our panelists, of hiking in the North Coast, "in the morning, when the sun burns off the dew and picks up the scents of plant resins." The fragrance may round the wine in the Napa Valley hills, but the texture is pure benchland, about as silky as a wine can be...a deliciously plump Zinfandel, the kind of dynamic red wine that proves Napa Valley's greatness."

Arguably the most popular of the co-branded wines with our staff last year was the 2010 version of this wine so it had a lot to live up to this year. The good news is the staff is every bit as excited about it this year and we hope that enthusiasm will rub off on you.

2011 Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Antonio Galloni: "93+ points. Dark red cherries, plums, menthol, tobacco, new leather and spices are some of the notes that inform the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. Hints of lavender and licorice develop in the glass as the wine gradually opens up. In 2011, the Howell Mountain Cabernet offers plenty of depth and resonance, but the tannins are quite tamed by Dunn standards, making it a delicious wine to drink earlier than other recent vintages. Randy Dunn's 2011s are surprisingly open, supple and expressive at this stage. Dunn describes 2011 as a year in which t ...Read More »

A sexy floral nuance comes up with air, adding lift to weighty berry and espresso flavors. Takes a brighter turn on the long, sappy finish, featuring raspberry compote and floral pastille qualities."

Firm and almost formidable in structure, it opens into savory layers, lengthened by refreshing acidity."

2011 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Chardonnay (Previously $40)

Connoisseurs Guide: "The Chardonnays of Grgich Hills are rarely, if ever, wines that trade on high ripeness and richness, but this very lean, nearly wiry young wine flirts with suggestions of greenness and proves to be very tight-fisted at this point. While we like its freshness and its hard-to-miss vibrancy, we would be happier if it were a little more outgoing in fruit, but given the winery's track record for slow-to-unfold, long-aging white wines, we are willing to set this one aside for several years."

2011 Bogle "The Phantom" California Red Blend

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A smooth mouthfeel and fresh, fruity flavors make this appealing and easy to enjoy, while a firm texture brings it into the tradtional dry-wine category. It combines blackberry and black cherry aromas and flavors, with hints of vanilla and nutmeg. It’s full bodied, lush and round in texture." (4/2015) K&L Notes: Among the best of the bold, but easy-drinking "red blends" that swept through the California wine scene in the past decade or so, Bogle's "Phantom" is styled on the old vine Zinfandel-based blends.

In taste, cranberry and savory black tea surround soft layers of well-built acidity and subtle red cherry fruitiness. It’s an intriguing wine that gets better in the glass."

Savory and incredibly perfumed in the glass, the 2011 captures the essence of this cool, late-ripening vintage in its mid-weight personality.

Sweet red berries, cinnamon, wild flowers, cedar and tobacco are all laced together in a supple, racy Cabernet that is already drinking well. The 2011 is quite delicate today, almost uncharacteristically so. Once again, the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was made entirely from Howell Mountain fruit. Randy Dunn's 2011s are surprisingly open, supple and expressive at this stage. Dunn describes 2011 as a year in which the spring frost took with it a co ...Read More »

2011 Ousterhout "Nance's Vineyard" Alexander Valley Zinfandel

95 points Wine & Spirits: "The vines that grew this supremely elegant wine were planted in 1999 on the red volcanic loam of a hillside and benchland vineyard in the southeast corner of Alexander Valley. Douglas and Nancy Ousterhout purchased the vineyard in 2009 and hired a pinot noir winemaker, Micah Wirth of Joseph Jewel, to create this silky, delicate zin. It’s as bright as a red cherry fresh off the tree, feeling almost weightless on the palate. As the wine takes on air, the tannins provide an edgy minerality that focuses and amplifies the fruit into a sunny, ruby-red laser be ...Read More »

2011 Epoch "Estate Blend--Paderewski Vineyard" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Looking at the 2011s from bottle, and always a rock-solid bottle of wine and a great entry into the style here, the 2011 Estate Blend offers up plenty of ripe plum, licorice, crushed flowers and violet-like nuances as well as a medium to full-bodied, balanced profile in the mouth. Showing the cooler vintage with its overall freshness and focus, it’s beautifully done and should drink nicely for 3-5 years, Drink now-2018. An estate that continues to go from strength to strength, Epoch is owned by Bill and Liz Armstrong, with the wines made by Jordan Fiore ...Read More »

2011 Axis Mundi (Clos Pepe) "Windmill Vineyard" Santa Ynez Valley Grenache/Syrah (Previously $20.00)

Axis Mundi is made by Wes Hagen of Clos Pepe. The winery's note: "Wes Hagen was hired by viticulturists in the Ballard Canyon subarea to write an AVA petition, and as part of his research was excited to make wines from Ballard Canyon. Partnering with the Saarloos family at the top of Ballard Canyon (a vineyard that Wes originally consulted for in the 1990s), Axis Mundi launched a new wine with a style that is rare in the market. The first three vintages (2010, 2011, 2012) produced a very juicy, fruity, light-bodied style that many defined as 'rose-like... Read More »

2011 Kenneth Volk "Enz Vineyard" Lime Kiln Valley Mourvedre

Connoisseurs Guide: "Here is an easy going, very approachable Mourvedre that shows a lighter, livelier gait than typical versions are wont to do, and it juxtaposes a bit of berry-like fruit with suggestions of dried leaves, chocolate and dusty soils. It is a little sparing in richness when compared to a good many of its cousins, yet it is constant and comfortably filled, and it is balanced to make friendly drinking over the next couple of years."

2011 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

91 points Wine Spectator: "Exhibits complex aromas of ripe berry, roasted coffee, dried herb and cedary cigar box, holding focus and gaining length and persistence. Drink now through 2022. 15,586 cases made. –JL" (9/2014) Connoisseurs Guide: "A fair bit of creamy oak sits atop a modest measure of nominally ripened cherries in the nose here and vies for attention in this full, somewhat rounded wine's ripe-leaning flavors as well. Full and a bit soft in structure with heat peeking through at the end, this is a moderately rich Pinot best tagged for drinking with light stews and steaks early on." (2/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The ...Read More »

2011 Spottswoode "Family Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2011 Spottswoode "Family Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points James Suckling: "A solid Spottswoode with mint, currants, berries and flowers. Sweet tobacco and rose petals. Full body with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Tangy, energetic and lively. A wine with form, tension and beauty. This is classic California. 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Better in 2016." (5/2014)94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is just as beautiful as it has always been. Silky, perfumed and impeccably balanced, the 2011 is all about finesse.

2011 Philip Togni "Estate" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Antonio Galloni: "Pine, menthol, savory herbs, licorice, dark cherry and plum notes emerge from the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshed out beautifully while retaining a classic, mid-weight profile. My sense is that the 2011 will develop along the lines of the 1994, a wine that remains distinctly floral, savory and medium in body, with less of the explosiveness of years such as 1985 or 1997, but with tons of class and style. It is going to be interesting to find out. The 2011 was bottled just a few months ago, so I will not be surprised if it ...Read More »

2011 La Jota Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Antonio Galloni: "Graphite, pencil shavings, violets, melted road tar, spices, blue/purplish fruit and lavender flesh out in the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon from La Jota. Aromatically striking and totally vivid in the glass, the 2011 stands out for its crystalline purity, finesse and vibrant finish. All the elements are in the right place. The tannins are firm yet also silky. This is a flat-out stunning wine from Chris Carpenter and La Jota. The 2011 is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot." (11/2013)91 points James Suckling: "Lots of dark-fruit and tar character on t ...Read More »
