1995 York Creek Spring Mountain District Meritage (Previously $55)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby color. Vibrant aromas of cassis, black cherry, shoe polish and oak spice. Firm, focused dark berry flavors are supported by a solid spine of acids and tannins. Very unevolved but not hard or tart. Should age slowly and well." (6/1999) Wine Spectator: "Tight and firm, with a compact focus on the chunky currant, mineral, plum and blackberry flavors, it slowly unfolds to reveal more nuances. Should reward patience in the cellar. Made by Cathy Corison." (1/2000)

2005 Berthoud "Ursus Minor" Sonoma Valley Bordeaux Blend

Mike Berthoud worked under Richard Arrowood at Chateau St. Jean, then was winemaker at Arrowood Winery. After 15 years at Arrowood, Mike moved on to Mayo Family Winery. Ursus is comprised of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot. Winemaker's notes: "As always all of the grapes used to produce the blend are grown on the Berthoud estate. Ursus is the Latin word for Bear, while Berthoud is pronounced Bear-2. Just like the bear, Ursus is a muscular wine while maintaining an elegant balance. It is an old world style wine that is...

2010 Domaine Carneros Brut Sparkling Wine

Toasted nuts, double cream brie, oysters and roast game bird; these are a few of our favorite things, when we're pairing rich California sparkling wine from Domaine Carneros. The Champagne house Taittinger, which knows terroir when it comes to sparkling wine, established this sparkling wine house in the Carneros appellation in 1987. The winery's notes on this brand-new vintage: "The 2010 harvest was marked by a cool late spring, which delayed bud break. The berry size was unusually small, however, slightly more clusters than typical, produced a near norm... Read More »

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."

(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.

Finishes with a long, intricate aftertaste." (5/2007)91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two stars* We have become accustomed to Klopp Ranch offerings as the ripest and fattest wines in the winery's portfolio, but, in this outing, the wine is firmer and more tannic that expected and, like its partner from the Meredith Estate, is structured and cries out for age.

This seamless, full-bodied wine is more velvety-textured, opulent, and succulent than past vintages. The mid-palate is expansive and chewy. The long finish is filled with glycerin, ripe fruit, and sweet tannin. Drink this impressive, user-friendly yet richly concentrated effort over the next 15 years.

A profound blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers gorgeous smoky, black cherry liqueur aromas mixed with melted fudge. The wine is unctuously-textured, super-concentrated, low in acidity, rich, and multilayered. This is a spectacular, hedonistic effort to drink over the next 15-20 years."

It hasn’t begun to come together yet, but when it does, in 4 or 5 years, you’ll find a rich, dense wine, soft and smooth, with a wonderful tease of tannins." (11/2005)

Its deep purple color is accompanied by a gorgeous bouquet of cedar, spice box, black fruits, smoke, and earth. In the mouth, there is a smorgasbord of sweet black fruits with a hint of dried Provencal herbs.

Nevertheless, it offers beautifully pure black cherry and currant fruit with a striking minerality cutting through the fruit notes. Medium to full-bodied and elegant, it will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring, and should keep for 20-25 years." (12/2007) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby-red. Complex aromas of cassis, blackberry, smoked meat, minerals, menthol and flowers, plus a suggestion of licorice with aeration. Juicy, minerally and tightly ...Read More »

Much too young now, however tempting. Should only get much better. Best from 2013 through 2022." (11/2011) K&L Notes: Martha's Vineyards has become one of the most well known Cabernets around the world for its unique mintiness, its rich layers of complexity and its remarkable overall balance.

1980 Markham Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Occupying a historic Napa Valley winery dating back to the 1870s, Markham cellars was founded in 1978 by Bruce Markham. With estate vineyards in Yountville, Oak Knoll, and Calistoga, these early Cabernet Sauvignons are what built the reputation of the winery. James Laube: "The 1980 Markham has beautifully defined supple black cherry, anise and currant flavors. The tannins are less obtrusive than in previous vintages."

2004 Heitz Cellar "Trailside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

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. Thus the Trailside Vineyard was born. This is an opulent wine known for its overall powerful Cabernet varietal expression, lush mouthfeel, and bold flavor. Aged for three-and-a-half years in a combination of American and French Limousin oak, the 2004 "Trailside" is a classic.

Stylish, very complete and firmly tannic on the finish, but it should reward cellaring until 1997 to 2001." (11/1990)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1987 Napa Cabernet reveals an opaque dark purple color, and a strong yet unevolved bouquet of cassis, minerals, and toasty oak.

Dense plum/ruby in color with a hedonistic personality, this is a heady, full-bodied wine to drink over the next 7-8 years. This is a top-flight single-vineyard wine aged completely in French oak, which is in total contrast to the wines made at Silver Oak." (02/05)

Finishes with suave, rather soft tannins." (International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 05) According to the Wine Spectator: "Firm and austere, with flinty mineral, red currant, plum and black cherry fruit. Flexes its tannic muscles yet manages to still showcase the ripe fruit. Needs time or decanting. Best from 2006 through 2013. 900 cases made." (11/04)

The blend is actually 75% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. The flamboyant fragrance jumps from the glass of this sweetheart of a wine. There is tremendous concentration and intensity of flavor, yet the wine is light on its feet, with a surreal, ethereal flavor profile. Cabernet Franc can do some special things in California, and it is good to see this wine perform so well. Already drinkable, it should last for 10-15 years. (RP) ...Read More »
