2012 J. Davies Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon New!
2012 J. Davies Diamond Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon from their estate on Diamond Mountain is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Malbec. A beauty, with raspberry, blueberry and even blacker fruits, the wine has a lusciousness, with silky tannins and real charm. If Châteaux Margaux made wine on Diamond Mountain it might well taste like this beauty. This is first-growth all the way: beautiful purity, symmetry, harmony and an ethereal lightness in spite of the richness and intensity. This is quite an achievement and already drinkable, but should continue to evolve ...Read More »

2010 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "Shows a good touch of bottle age and a notably oaky presence, marked by dill, vanilla bean and coconut notes wrapped around a rich, authoritative, full-bodied core of loamy earth, dark berry, licorice and espresso. Drink now through 2028." (4/2015) K&L Notes: The 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.

2010 Groth "Reserve" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* If you don’t cellar this Cab, you’ll miss out on what it has to offer. It is a dry, deeply flavored, superbly structured wine, rich in tannins, with brooding depths of flavors ranging from black currants, cassis and licorice to hints of dried herbs and sweet, toasty cedar wood. The alcohol is on the high side, in the modern Napa style, but the wine wears its heat well. Start drinking it after 2018."

2011 Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
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 »

2010 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour" Private Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Freshly cut flowers, mint, spices, licorice and graphite all burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality. While some of Beaulieu's 2010s are ripe and flashy, the Georges de Latour is wonderfully fresh and alive in the glass, not to mention absolutely classic in feel. Graphite, violets and pencil shavings linger on the close. The 2010 has captured every bit of the potential I sensed last year."

2010 Anakota "Helena Montana" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana Vineyard is cut from the same cloth. Its opaque purple color and sweet creme de cassis fruit intermixed with crushed rock and forest floor notes lead to a broad, rich, full-bodied mouthfeel with excruciatingly high tannins and intense power and richness. It should be forgotten for at least a decade. (RP)" (10/2013) 92-94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana Vineyard stands out for its delineation and nuance.

2012 Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Antonio Galloni: "The highlight among these releases from Robert Craig, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is off the charts gorgeous. A super-classic Veeder profile of graphite-infused blue and black fruit opens up in the glass. The inclusion of 20% Merlot in the blend helps soften some of the mountain tannins, but there is still no shortage of personality and intensity. A radiant finish round out this knockout effort from Robert Craig. I can't recommend the 2012 highly enough, especially for its very reasonable price tag.

2011 Dunn Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is one of the most open, young Dunn Cabernets I have ever tasted. 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.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Aidan (445 cases) emerges from Dijon clones 115 and 777 planted in the cool Wild Rose Vineyard in the Russian River. This beauty reveals notes of strawberry jam, plums, blackcurrants, cherries, resiny pine forest, unsmoked cigar tobacco and a hint of cloves. Fresh, full-bodied and complex, it should drink well for a decade. As I have written in the past, this is a beautiful partnership between owner Kerry Murphy and the brilliant winemaker Andy Smith.

2012 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

Full body and a juicy, long, long finish. Drink or hold." (7/2015) 90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good red-ruby. Slightly jammy aromas of dark berries, chocolate and graphite. Sweet, plush and broad, with mouthfilling flavors of dark cherry, cassis, cocoa powder and caramel. Not especially brisk or sharply delineated but finishes with sufficient energy, ripe tannins and very good sweetness and length."

2013 Kosta Browne "One Sixteen" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Here is a Chardonnay that goes right to the fruity point even as it makes no apologies for ripeness and a full dose of sweet, lightly toasty oak. It is full and slightly supple with fine proportion and balance throughout and is marked by a sense of sophistication uncommon in wines of its richness and size. It is at once bold but well-measured and stays structured even as a touch of late-arriving heat peeks through at the finish, and, if an eminently satisfying companion to richer seafood and fowl in its youth, it promises to be better yet after a wait of ...Read More »

2013 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Velvety, resolved tannins make it enjoyable from the get-go, layered in acidity for a buoyant lift on the midpalate and finish, which suggests cinnamon and tea. Enjoy now and through 2020."

Much more vibrant on the nose than the 2011, offering scents of blueberry, blackberry, menthol and minerals lifted by notes of violet and crushed rock. Densely packed and fine-grained, offering lovely inner-mouth perfume to the sharply focused dark berry and mineral flavors. Finishes savory, firm and long, with impressive fruit intensity."

2011 Lail Vineyards "J. Daniel Cuvée" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $149)

Mocha, plums, chocolate, cloves, licorice and spices all emerge from a surprisingly big, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2011 is explosive, rich and intense, with equally imposing tannins that are going to need at least a few years to settle down. This is an impressive showing from Lail. The J. Daniel Cuvee is built on a core of fruit from Heimark, plus Mole Hill and Vine Hill Ranch. 94+" (7/2014)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby.

Dark, voluptuous and layered in the glass, the 2012 boasts fabulous resonance. The flavors are bold and deeply spiced, with tons of richness and pure volume. Dark red cherries, plums, menthol, spices and new leather meld into the plush, inviting finish. The 33% whole clusters are pretty much buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit.

There is so much going on in the glass that words prove superficial in trying to describe just how beautiful the 2012 is. Majestic. That might do it.

2012 Darioush Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

"Reflecting the strengths of Napa Valley's 2012 vintage, the Signature Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits beautiful layers of blueberry and black cherry aromas mingled with bittersweet cocoa, cinnamon and cigar box. Rich and dense on the palate with blackberry, dried fig and anise flavors, the wine is further enhanced by savory and earthbound elements of dried sage and French roast coffee. The tannins are firm, refined and mineral-laden, offering a complete, long-term and rewarding wine experience," cites the winery.

Ripe and voluptuous on the palate - yet with a super-classic conception of structure, the 2013 offers superb depth and impeccable overall balance.

However, it offers sweeter tannins as well as slightly more evolved and complex aromas of unsmoked, high class cigar tobacco, graphite, blackberries, cassis, spring flowers and a distinctive minerality.

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 »

1999 Pride Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "Well-oaked, with creamy, mocha-scented flavors leading to a ripe, supple, complex core of currant, black cherry, anise, spice and mineral. Turns sleek and elegant on the finish, with a long, lively aftertaste." (2/2002)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(from vines just yards across the county line) Good medium ruby-red. Sappy aromas of black- and redcurrant, licorice, brown spices and shoe polish. Denser than the cabernet franc bottling, with a higher pitch despite its creamy-sweet berry flavors. Exotic oak adds another layer of flavor to this already enticing but still young cabernet. Fo ...Read More »

2001 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Merlot

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Merlot should convert all the doubters of this varietal in Napa Valley, as it is consistently one of the top two or three Merlots made in California. At ten years of age, the 2001 confirms what an extraordinary Merlot producer he is. It transcends the category and puts to shame most of the Merlots that emerge from the Golden State. A dense plum/purple color is accompanied by a beautifully sweet nose of melted chocolate, creme de cassis, cherry pie, earth and spice. It possesses a voluptuous texture, brilliant purity and equilibrium, and a chewy, succ ...Read More »

2004 Blankiet "Paradise Hills Vineyard" Napa Valley Merlot

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a stunning Merlot, impossibly rich. Saturated and opaque in color, it tastes fat and flashy, with masses of cherry and blackberry jam, anise, chocolate and Provençal herb flavors. Yet this opulently soft wine has a classic structure, backed up with firm tannins. This is a profound Merlot." (3/2007)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Merlot Paradise Hills Estate offers a big, sweet kiss of cassis, kirsch, spice and spring flowers. Rich, medium to full-bodied and seemingly close to full maturity, it is easily capable of lasting 10-15+ years. The aromatics smell just like a gr ...Read More »

2012 Nickel & Nickel "John C. Sullenger Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Wine & Spirits: "The Sullenger Vineyard is located on the east side of Highway 29, on the edge of an alluvial fan that forms at the Mayacamas benchlands to the west. The clay-loam soils here built a finely structured cabernet in 2012, a wine with complex red fruit flavors that touch on plum, fresh pomegranate, rose hips and cherry pits. Gracious tannins contribute an earthy spice, maintaining a textural finesse that is neither abrasive nor slick. The tannins have the give of a fresh forest mushroom, a cushioned resilience that suggests this will age beautifully, developi ...Read More »

1980 Spring Mountain Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

James Laube: "A big, rich, concentrated wine, high in extract, tannic and full bodied, wih ripe plum, black cherry, cedar and spice flavors. While it lacks elegance and finesse now, it has all the ingredients to gain with cellaring." (Wine Spectator's Ultimate Guide - California's Great Cabernets, 1989, pg 342)
