2018 Heir Apparent Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $150) (Elsewhere $150)
Top Pick!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Unquestionably my favorite in the lineup, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Heir Apparent has a Pauillac-like bouquet of blackcurrants, freshly sharpened lead pencils, tobacco, crushed stone, and new leather. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a seamless, elegant texture, good concentration, notable purity of fruit, and a great finish. While it’s not a blockbuster, it shines for its complexity and terrific overall balance and just has loads of character. If drinking any time soon, give bottles a ...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Most Bordeaux-style white wines from Washington are Sauvignon Blanc heavy. This one flips the script, along with a heavy dose of Muscadelle that a few wineries in the state are working with. The aromas bring immediate appeal, with notes of whole orange, fig, herb and lees. A full-feeling, textured, flavorful palate follows, redolent with fig flavors. A lingering finish caps it off. It's glorious with a long life ahead of it. Hard to keep your hands off now but will be best after 2023. *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2020* (SS)" ...

Top Pick!
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Syrah The Beautiful Powerline Vineyard comes from a vineyard outside of Walla Walla, in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. It was not destemmed and was brought up in neutral, larger barrels. An exotic nose of ripe blue and black fruits, lavender, sappy flowers, and herbes de Provence-like nuances give way to a medium to full-bodied, richly textured, structured wine with a mouth-filling, layered, meaty style that builds nicely with time in the glass. There's always a sappy, almost herbal edge to this beauty, and it ages ...

2018 Carte Blanche "Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
Back In Stock!
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Lastly, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard comes from a great site in Oakville that continues to fly slightly under the radar yet produces brilliant wines. Incredible cassis, graphite, damp earth, and violet notes emerge from the glass, and this full-bodied beauty offers plenty of high-end oak, ripe, seamless tannins, and flawless balance. It just screams of Cabernet. There’s no harm drinking bottles today, but I’d nevertheless recommend a solid 4-5 years of bottle age. It should keep for two-plus dec...

Medium in body yet full of flavor, the 2018 hits all the right notes. Buehler is another estate in Napa Valley that doesn’t get anywhere near the recognition it deserves.

This is another incredible looking barrel sample from this team that sports a deep purple color, notes of black raspberries, ground pepper, incense, and spice, medium to full body, terrific purity of fruit, and a layered, balanced, concentrated profile.

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Sourced from a single parcel of Syrah planted in 1955, this benchmark Ventoux red calibrates the penetration and angularity of Syrah with the intensity of Southern Rhône sun and a salty, stony minerality.

As with most of Chris’s 2018s, it’s a wine that builds slowly with time in the glass, offering a layered, singular character.
