2010 Zaca Mesa Santa Ynez Valley Syrah

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The first winery to plant Syrah in the county continues to produce powerful but layered expressions. This delivers rich aromas of cherry, stewed plum and blackberry alongside sage and a wisp of vanilla. On the palate, it starts rich, until bright acidity and tannins bring balance amidst mocha and blackberry jam flavors and an oak-powered vanilla finish." (2/2015)

2010 Kukkula "Lothario" Paso Robles Red Blend (Previously $38)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(34% grenache, 33% mourvedre and 33% zinfandel; 15.2% alcohol): Bright purple. Ripe raspberry and blueberry on the nose and in the mouth. Juicy, spice-accented berry compote flavors show an appealingly silky quality and pick up a floral nuance with air. Closes on a gently sweet note, with lingering blue fruit and spice qualities. No shortage of fruit here." (11/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Lothario is another of the more restrained wines in this lineup from Kukkula. It shows good depth and persistence, with pretty notes of tobacco, wild flowers and dried cherries that l ...Read More »

2010 Foley Johnson Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points James Suckling: "A red with lots of iodine, stone, currant and spice character. It's full-bodied, chewy and juicy. I like this slightly better than the Estate Bottled in 2010. Needs a least three or four years to soften: better in 2016." (5/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon’s dark ruby/purple color is followed by clean, pure aromas of black currants and underbrush, medium body, excellent purity and an alluring texture. This delicious, accessible Cabernet Sauvignon should also drink well for 7-8 years. Moreover, the pricing is realistic for Napa. (RP)" (10/2013) Wine & Spirits: "This is a new ...Read More »

2010 Stonestreet "Estate" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A lovely Cabernet, ripe and delicious, yet complex enough to hold your interest. It’s just beginning its journey in the bottle. Very dark in color, with hard tannins, it has an immense core of blackberries and cherries. Give it at least 6–8 years, but it could still be rocking in 2022." (8/2013) 91 points Decanter: "Concentrated flavors of brambly blackberry and cassis supported by notes of bay leaf, pepper and graphite. Full and mouthfilliung, the wine's tannins are stout but polished. Drink 2015-2023."

2010 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Most of the fruit for this restrained, savory Cabernet comes from cuttings Emmett Rixford purportedly sourced from Château Margaux in the 1890s. Martin Ray propagated his own cuttings from that selection to plant in this vineyard's shallow, shale-laced soils at 1,800 feet of elevation in the 1940s and 50s, and later Jeffrey Patterson replanted it in the 1980s with a selection from those vines. Is it just a coincidence that, tasting this blind, my thoughts turned to a 1985 Margaux I tasted recently? Maybe it was the gentle elasticity of the texture, the v ...Read More »

2010 Alysian "Russian River Selection" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* If not a wine for fans of extract and high ripeness, this relatively mild-mannered offering is both balanced and accessible with a good fix on Pinot Noir. It very much follows the Alysian model in that it is lithe and light on its feet, and it tenaciously hangs on to plenty of buoyant, red-cherry fruit even as it takes a turn to last-minute tartness." (10/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Musky red berries, cherry pit and dried flowers on the nose. Taut, sharply focused redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors show modest depth and pick up a peppery quality with ai ...Read More »

2010 Stony Hill Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay

Wine Spectator: "Fresh, clean and pithy, with taut tangerine, nectarine and citrus blossom flavors, ending with subtle white fruit notes. (Web-2012)" K&L Notes: According to the winery: "'I believe this is going to be a great wine...it already is!' That's what winemaker Mike Chelini says about our 2010 Chardonnay vintage. As always, it is pale straw in color. Its aromas carry a distinctive minerality backed by green apple, Muscat and lemon zest. The mouth feel combines richness and acidity, and it's that balance of fruit and tartness that we always strive for. Apples, lemon and an ea... Read More »

2010 World's End "Wavelength" Napa Valley Red Wine (Elsewhere $70)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Wavelength Proprietary Red is an intriguing blend of 65% Syrah and 35% Cabernet Franc. Its saturated purple color is followed by aromas of flowers, blueberries, blackberries, forest floor and spice. The wine hits the mouth with medium to full body, glorious fruit, sensational purity, wonderful texture and length, and a finish that lasts 40-45 seconds. Usually blending Cabernet Franc and Syrah together would not be a high priority on most winemaker’s agenda, but Maltus marches to the beat of a different drummer and clearly has something special o ...Read More »

2010 Mount Eden "Reserve" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Only slightly darker in color than the Estate Chardonnay, the 2010 Chardonnay Reserve is a barrel selection from the standard Santa Cruz Mountain Chardonnay that's moved to stainless steel barrels, gets a single lees stirring, and then is left alone for 12 months before being bottled. It offers rocking notes of ripe orchard fruits, honeysuckle, orange blossom and vanilla cream on the nose. These carry to a medium to full-boded Chardonnay that has terrific concentration, a layered, silky and vibrant texture and a big finish. Still youthful and vibrant, if ...Read More »

There is more acidity showing through, the fruit offering up various red and black fruits from pomegranate to plum to cassis, dark sweet cherries as well as foresty underbrush notes. (RP)" (8/2015) 94 points Wine Spectator: "A mature Pinot, moderately rich and fleshy in texture, highlighted by blueberry, raspberry and blackberry flavors that gain depth and remain expansive.

2010 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

From the winemaker: "In the early 1980s, the Heitz Family acquired a marvelous Rutherford vineyard bordered on one side by the Silverado Trail and nudged on the other by the Conn Creek. In 1989, we introduced our Trailside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon--an opulent wine that consistently expresses its lineage in bold, luscious statements. Our Trailside Vineyard produces Cabernet grapes that are incredibly intense and flavorful. We try to enhance that natural bravado during our extended aging process by using new French oak barrels."

2010 Rocca "Grigsby Vineyard" Yountville Napa Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $75)

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* Although mildly minty, framed with sweet oak and hinting ever so slightly at a bit of dusty dry earth, this very deep and confident, young Cabernet Sauvignon is directed first and foremost by its incisive, keenly varietal, blackcurrant fruit. It is fleshy and quite supple on entry with an early inclination to roundness, but ample structural tannins then make their mark even if they are fairly refined and far from abrasive. The wine's lack of toughness means that it will be approachable soon, but this one has the kind of careful balance and de ...Read More »

Martha's Vineyard is certinaly one of the most important Napa Valley bottlings over the last half century, and is one of the last wines to be released from any given vintage. The CCOF organically certified vineyard in Oakville has been the flagship bottling of Heitz since 1966. From the winery: "A great success in a challenging year, this wine is a true testament to the vitality of Martha's Vineyard itself.

2010 Fort Ross "Fort Ross Vineyard" Fort Ross-Seaview Pinotage (Previously $38)

Wine Enthusiast: "From budwood brought over from South Africa, the owners’ home country, this coastal Pinotage is earthy and dry, its personality leaning toward gamy black pepper and herb." (2/2015) K&L Notes: Fort Ross Vineyard is set on a sunny coastal ridge just a mile from the Pacific Ocean. Here, South African ex-patriots Lester and Linda Schwartz grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay--naturally--but also a little bit of something different: Pinotage. This curious grape was first developed in South Africa in 1925 by crossing Pinot Noir with Cinsault. Not often found outside its native c... Read More »

2010 Mount Eden "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

Honeysuckle, tangerine, apricot, and crème brulee literally jump from the glass A vivid, exotic wine, the 2010 is constantly changing in the glass. Stylistically, the 2010 is a little richer than Mount Eden fans are used to, but all the elements are in the right place. The 2010 verges on the edge of tropical aromas and flavors that are quite rare for young Mount Eden Chardonnays. Ideally, the 2010 is best left alone for a few years to allow some of the baby fat to drop off. I imagine it will always be a bit on th ...Read More »

Its subtle oak is wholly obeisant to fruit, and it is both rich and very lively. It is a fine and vibrant expression of what Russian River Valley Pinot can be, and it affords both delicious drinking now and potential for four or five years of growth."

Freshly cut flowers, mint, spices, licorice and graphite all burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality.

According to the winery: "The Cabernet Sauvignon is selected from well drained vineyards on cool rolling hills in Paso Robles.

2010 Cambiata "Rocosa Loma Vineyard" Monterey Tannat

It's a little known fact, but there just happens to be a small Tannat vineyard in the rocky and well drained soils of the Santa Lucia Mountains. The challenge with Tannat is balancing the wine's fruit and its aggressive tannins, and this ruggedly perfect, relatively cool zone helps to achieve just that. It is bold yet refined, thought provoking and rousing. The tannins immediately fill your mouth (and for the uninitiated this might cause a moment of concern), but they are knitted and structured and form the matrix that begins to fill with a thick, surgin...

2010 Cain "Five" Spring Mountain District Bordeaux Blend

In basic terms, Cain "Five" is just that: the estate's top blend of Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The exact percentages of each are listed on the label, but that, as winemaker Chris Howell will tell you, does not explain anything. While it may seem like everybody talks a big game about their terroir, a lot of wineries are playing the point-score game, too, with heavily extracted wines from late-harvested grapes--a scene that Cain has quietly excused itself from--although James Suckling found his ...

2010 Williams Selyem "Burt Williams' Morning Dew Ranch" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This shows flavors of jammy raspberry and cherry. The acidity is fantastic and so are the tannins, and the mouthfeel is silky and racy. It’s an elegant Pinot Noir for drinking over the next 5-6 years." (3/2013) Wine & Spirits: "Warm, cherry liqueur flavors carry through this wine, melding tart cherry with sweeter root vegetable tones. The tannins are gentle, leaving the fruit to last on its own. For roast beef." (4/2013) Wine Spectator: "A delicate style marked by mineral-laced raspberry and black cherry flavors that are fine-grained and refined. A style that will benefit from short-term cel ...Read More »

2010 Kanzler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points Wine Spectator: "Brimming with rich, ripe layers of blueberry and wild berry at the core. Spicy, complex and focused, this gains velocity and ends with a long, persistent finish that echoes fresh earth and black licorice. Drink now through 2022." (9/2012) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Kanzler’s 2010 Pinot Noir is a pretty, delicate wine. Sweet red cherries, tobacco, licorice and spices all come together in this soft, inviting Pinot. Savory herbs, juniper berries, autumn leaves and wild flowers appear later, adding complexity. The 2010 could use another 6-12 months for the whole clusters to become a lit ...Read More »

2010 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (98RP, 96WS, 93AG, 92W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection exhibits an opaque purple color, slightly more toasty oak in the aromatics, and explosive richness on the attack, mid-palate and length. The nose is slightly more restrained than in the regular bottling, but there is no doubting the Special Selection is a cut or two above the Napa bottling when it hits the palate. Extraordinary purity of fruit, creme de cassis, licorice and incense all emerge from this full-bodied, iconic classic. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 25+ years. (RP)" (10/2013)

2010 Ridge Vineyards "Geyserville" Sonoma Zinfandel
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2010 Ridge Vineyards "Geyserville" Sonoma Zinfandel (90ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Glass-staining ruby. Ripe cherry and blackberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of mace, star anise and smoky herbs. Sweet dark fruit flavors pick up a refreshingly bitter quality with air, along with a note of candied violet. Spicy and broad on the finish, which clings with impressive sweetness and persistence. This wine drinks well now, especially with a bit of aeration. (JR)" (05/2012)

2010 Failla Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a blend of younger-vines juice): Good dark red. Aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, game, earth and violet, with hints of cigar and game. Juicy, savory black fruit flavors are nicely expressive but on the lean side. Finishes with a dusting of tannins and good length. Like most of these pinots, this is just under 14% alcohol." (5/2012) K&L Notes: A great intro to Failla's Pinots, this one comes from four cool-climate vineyard sites across the Sonoma Coast appellation: Floodgate, Keefer Ranch, Hirsch and Failla's Estate vineyard, The 2010 vintage was notably cold...

2010 Tensley "Colson Canyon Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah

(11/2012) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "*Highly Recommended* Even better, and a killer value, is the 2010 Syrah Colson Canyon.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2010 Spottswoode "Family Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (100RP, 96VN, 94ST, 93WS, 91CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts an inky/purple color as well as glorious aromas of spring flowers, lead pencil shavings, licorice and a multitude of wild mountain fruits, in particular black raspberry, blackberry and cassis reminiscent of a French Pauillac (although I always think of Spottswoode as the Chateau Margaux of Napa). With a flawless integration of tannin, wood and acidity, it comes across like a liquid version of haute couture from the house of Chanel. It should drink well young yet age for 25 years.
