2011 St. Clement "Oroppas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Elsewhere $50) Top Pick!
2011 St. Clement "Oroppas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Elsewhere $50)

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Oroppas brings together a gorgeous combination of silkiness and power. Mocha, espresso, plum and smoke inform a textured, expressive Cabernet long on personality. The 2011 emerges from a number of parcels, but most of the fruit is from Paras on Mt. Veeder. This is an especially luscious, inviting wine from St. Clement and former winemaker Danielle Cyrot. (AG)" (11/2013)

2011 Obsidian Ridge "Obsidian Ridge Vineyard" Red Hills Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine & Spirits: "**Featured in the Year's Best U.S Cabernet and Blends 2014 Issue** From a vineyard planted at 2,600 feet on the volcanic slopes above Clear Lake, this is a sophisticated cabernet, the fruit as deep and dark as blackberry juice, rich yet clean and spicy, laced with mountain aromas of pine straw and dry brush. Firm and almost formidable in structure, it opens into savory layers, lengthened by refreshing acidity."

2011 Qupé "Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard - K&L Selection" Edna Valley Syrah Top Pick!
2011 Qupé "Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard - K&L Selection" Edna Valley Syrah

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. Bob Lindquist was more than happy to work with us again this year and put together this 100% Syrah bottling from certified Demeter Bio-Dynamically grown vines in the cool Edna Valley Appellation. Unmistakably Syrah from the first sniff of the nose the bold cracked black pepper, fried bacon,... Read More »

2011 Happy Canyon "K&L-Doug Margerum Cuvee" Happy Canyon Red Wine Top Pick!
2011 Happy Canyon "K&L-Doug Margerum Cuvee" Happy Canyon Red Wine

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 2-3 years. Several 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 Vo... Read More »

2011 Ravenswood "Big River" Alexander Valley Zinfandel (Previously $40) Top Pick!
2011 Ravenswood "Big River" Alexander Valley Zinfandel (Previously $40)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Ripe cherry and black raspberry aromas are complicated by notes of licorice, cola and smoky herbs. 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."

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."

Hey Mambo's Sultry Red blends bold red grape varietals from Lodi, Paso Robles, the Sierra Foothills and Monterey into a inky, spicy, sexy and affordable red wine. The 2011 vintage is dominated by Syrah, with Petite Sirah, Zin, Merlot, Tannat, Cab Franc, Alicante and Tempranillo. From the winemaker: "Your first sip sits forward with flavors of juicy pomegranate, ripe plum, and boysenberry. As the flavors open up, you notice more Tahitian vanilla bean, dried blueberry, fig, and integrated sweet cinnamon notes. On the finish, the wine has a warm edge with l... Read More »

2011 Schramsberg Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* There is plenty of youthful, lightly cherry-like fruit in play here, and it is joined by a deft bit of carefully fit yeast, but what is most striking about this finely bubbled working is its marvelous sense of energy and freshness. It is tight and balanced to crispness with an uncommon sense of sophistication and finesse for a wine of such extraordinary drive and fruity vigor, and, while there is no doubt about its ability to last for a very long time, it is so bright and buoyant that it begs drinking now."

Plums, leather, tobacco, cedar, mint and pine are all bright and nicely focused in the glass. A wine of balance and energy, the 2011 impresses for its energy and sense of harmony. The tannins are a bit firm, but that just serves to support the fruit. Hints of sweet tobacco, savory herbs and cedar linger on the long, nuanced finish. This is a fabulous showing in a very challenging year." (9/2014) K&L Notes: An excellent value for its provenance, this Cabernet Sauvigno... Read More »

2011 Ancient Peaks Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

Connoisseurs Guide: "**Good Value** Chocolate, toasty spice and an interesting suggestion of smoke are backed up by enough black cherry fruit to keep this bottling within fairly broad varietal lines, and its fruit manages to keep pace in the vaguely leathery, slightly astringent flavors that ensue. The wine, while not hugely tannic, does tend to get a bit dry at the finish, yet, in this era of rising Cabernet prices, this one offer a lot to like for the money."

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."

It combines blackberry and black cherry aromas and flavors, with hints of vanilla and nutmeg. It’s full bodied, lush and round in texture."

Fruity in peach, raspberry and blood orange, it is multi-faceted and complex, dry and elegant with a long finish that leans herbal, the acidity dialed perfectly right, gentle on the palate and memorable."

There is a soulfulness and depth here that is striking. Rich, powerful and intense, today the 2011 is not fully expressive (especially in the bouquet), but its beauty is hard to miss. The 2011 was aged in a large 70HL cask. I can't wait to taste it from bottle." (7/2013)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby.

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 »

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

2011 Gamba "Family Ranches" Russian River Valley Zinfandel (Previously $37)

We've been big fans of Gus Gamba's old vine estate Zinfandel, and the now near-cult status Moratto (Starr Road) Vineyard old vine Zin, for years. "Family Ranches" is sourced with the help of a few neighboring vineyards in this slightly elevated, well-drained area that's been a "sweet spot" for Russian River Valley Zinfandel for over a century. Aged in American oak, it's 15.9 abv but hardly showing it through supple, rich layers of toasty cocoa and brambleberry fruit.

They also farm a site that is particularly well adapted to draining excess water. So they produced a remarkable 2011, a late vintage challenged by rain close to harvest. It’s proof that a challenge met can create something sublime—like this floral, red-raspberry-scented vintage of Dominus. It’s a tense chord of flavor incorporating green herb, tobacco, cassis and raspberry in a lasting harmony.

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 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2011 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Cellar Selection * Impeccable elegance characterizes this vintage of the producer’s marquee Bordeaux-style blend, an expert finessing of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Juicy in exotic black fruit, it stands tall, with silky, towering shoulders of herb, cardamom and clove that will coalesce beautifully over time. Hold through 2026." (5/2015)93 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Insignia is impressive, no doubt about it. In this vintage, it is the wine's length and persistence that stand out most. This is a decidedly Old World st ...Read More »

2011 Keenan Napa Valley Merlot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Merlot reveals a wonderful smoky espresso-scented nose with a hint of black cherry liqueur. Medium-bodied and moderately colored, it is not terribly rich or profoundly deep, but it is lush, velvety and endearing. I suspect most wine consumers may prefer this Merlot to some of the more highly rated and concentrated vintages that require a few years of bottle age. This can be enjoyed in its first 3-4 years of life. (RP)" (10/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "Spicy plum and soft, smoky tannins characterize this Merlot, made from 80% estate-grown fruit from Spring Mountain and ...Read More »

2011 Trinchero Napa Valley Meritage

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a hearty Meritage employing all five red Bordeaux varieties. The color is black and the fruit equally dark and rich, offering muscular tannins around rich notes of blackberry, cedar and herb." (3/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Proprietary Red Meritage, a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec, reveals surprisingly soft, round, easygoing flavors of black cherries, black currants, spice and earth. Medium-bodied, charming and more sensual and seductive than the more expensive 2010 Signature, the Meritage can be ...Read More »

2011 Ehlers Estate "1886" St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 1886 recognizes the founding date of Ehlers Estate. While this cuvée may not be as sexy as the Merlot, it exhibits lush blackcurrant fruit, good purity, ripeness, suppleness and seductiveness, and should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 12+ years. (RP)" (10/2014) K&L Notes: From the winery: "This is an age-worthy Cabernet with clean, clear fruit expression, a strong acid presence, and smooth, elegant tannins. Spicy with leather, clove, maple syrup, dark chocolate, black cherries, and black plums, this wine has a terrific balance an... Read More »

2011 Flowers "Sea View Ridge" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* The most notable thing about this Pinot is its intensity of flavor. A blend of both new Dijon clones and older California selections of Pinot Noir, it is stunning with flavors of raspberries, cherries and Dr. Pepper. It’s a balanced, elegant wine with vibrant texture , but needs time to truly shine. Hold till at least 2017." (2/2014)91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* Light in color and rich in flavor depth, this is a tight young pinot noir from a ridge overlooking the Pacific, less than two miles away and more than 1,800 feet below. It hints at cherries, sa ...Read More »

2011 Smith-Madrone Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Stu and Charles Smith planted 20 acres of vines in 1972. Given the remoteness of their site, on steep slopes rising to 2,000 feet, they decided to plant without rootstock. Nearly two acres of the original cabernet vines still survive, now part of a 34-acre, dry-farmed vineyard producing riesling, chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon. This wine, ripened above the fog line, feels untroubled by the cool, late 2011 harvest. In fact, it feels saturated with brisk Pacific air, with deep flavors of black currants and the spicy scent of the redwood forest that surr ...Read More »
